On May 25, 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect. We are committed to providing a clear GDPR compliance to all our partners. Our company is making some important changes to support these new data protection responsibilities. We understand that our publisher partners and advertising demand partners all have a requirement to comply with the Regulation. Chocolate cannot advise you as to whether you are GDPR compliant. However, we are working to ensure that our services comply with GDPR and that our partners can continue to use our Services after GDPR takes effect.
What is Chocolate Platform doing?
In support of these new regulations that require user consent for EU personal data to be collected, processed and distributed for advertising purposes we will be updating:
- Publisher Data Processor Agreement
- Our SDK product and OpenRTB protocol
- Contract agreements with DSPs, advertiser, buyers and third-party measurement and data partners
- Our Terms of Services
We will soon be sharing the revised agreements and update our products incompliance with GDPR before May 25th, 2018. In the coming weeks, you will be receiving additional information about how EU user consent will be supported via our ad server and real-time bidding exchange.
GDPR compliance is a top precedence for the Chocolate team, and we’re here to help make this shift as smooth as possible for our partners. If you have any questions about this update, please reach out to your account manager.
