New rules from the UK Committee on Advertising Practices (CAP) covering online behavioural advertising (OBA), came into effect on the 4th of February 2013. For the first time, the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) will regulate the way that ad networks and third parties use online behavioural tracking and targeting technologies such as cookies.
Thousands of advertisers are in breach of this rule so what happens if you are not compliant and how will this impact your marketing?
Firstly, to comply with these rules, adverts based on browsing history data, will have to include information explaining to consumers that they have been targeted using OBA and advertisers must provide users with a way to opt out.
If you are an advertiser, agency, publisher or ad network, tune in live to our next webcast where we’ll be drilling into the new CAP rules, consumer attitudes to OBA and the steps you need to take to ensure you are compliant. Find out how to build trust by giving consumers transparency, notice and choice.

At its very core, marketing is storytelling, resonating emotionally with customers to project the right message at just the right time. This year we’ve seen more and more brands adopt storytelling but fail to connect to their audience. So why is that and how can you make sure your message is heard?
In March 2012, Internet Explorer launched a powerful interactive video campaign developing a completely new genre of brand storytelling and content driven marketing. With seamless original content, the experience was designed to showcase the latest version of Internet Explorer by deeply engaging a hard to reach audience.
Internet Explorer partnered with award-winning director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Edgar Wright, and renowned Marvel and Lucasfilm illustrator, Tommy Lee Edwards, to create an animated crowd sourced online film called The Random Adventures of Brandon Generator with optimised visuals for users of Internet Explorer 9.
In Brand Republic’s next webcast, we discuss the genesis and scope of the project to find out how this unique campaign combined inspiration with insight to arouse and captivate the target audience's imagination, sparking extensive press coverage and a huge wave of positive sentiment across social media sites.

European consumers are increasingly aware of cookies and other online tracking activities and are becoming increasingly concerned about their potential affect on privacy. European law now regulates this space via the ePrivacy Directive (i.e. "Cookie Directive"), which sets standards for the level of notice and control that websites must provide consumers with when using cookies or other forms of tracking technology.
So how has this law affected the online ecosystem and what does it mean for marketers?
Are self-regulatory initiatives led by industry associations like the DAA and EDAA addressing public concern on this issue?
Will most consumers opt-out from tracking activities when offered the choice or can notice and control mechanisms actually help websites better engage their visitors?
In this live webcast TRUSTe and Osborne Clarke will unveil their recent research examining consumers' perceptions in the UK and other key EU markets around online tracking and privacy.
Tune in live where we’ll reveal the surprising findings to help you as marketers learn how effective privacy can help you engage visitors and drive conversions whilst still ensuring compliance.
