TVSquared, a global player in cross-platform TV ad measurement, has announced its approved status as the latest organisation to join IAB Europe’s Transparency & Consent Framework (TCF). By joining the TCF, TVSquared provides ADvantage platform users with additional independent assurance that it operates to the highest standards of data protection across linear and OTT/CTV measurement.
TCF is designed to help all parties in the digital advertising chain ensure that they comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and ePrivacy Directive.
Developed by IAB Europe in collaboration with organisations and professionals in the digital advertising industry, TCF provides transparency to consumers about how, and by whom, their personal data is processed. While it enables users to express choices, it also empowers vendors, engaged in programmatic advertising, to know whether their own and/or their partners’ transparency and consent status allows them to lawfully process personal data for online advertising and related purposes.
Through TCF, publishers can continue funding themselves through relevant online advertising; and brands can continue to reach their audiences – all while consumer privacy is protected.
“From the start, TVSquared has proactively worked to maintain the highest standards of information security and data privacy, continually evolving in line with global consumer and industry demands,” said Blair Robertson, CTO and EVP, TVSquared. “Becoming a registered member of the IAB Europe’s TCF is part of our ongoing commitment to providing transparency and consent for all parties in the advertising ecosystem.”
