A New Specifications Creation Process for the DAA Icon: Video

September 15, 2014

With all the fanfare of our announcement earlier this year of ad marker guidelines for the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Advertising Option Icon and approved texts in mobile environments, building on similar specifications for desktop environments, one might think it’s time to take a breather.

But we’re on a roll – this time a video roll. 

So our next working group is about to begin. Our goal is to remove the guesswork on placement of the DAA Icon, corresponding texts, and links to policies and preference centers – so the consumer has a consistent privacy experience. It continues the DAA's ethos of delivering actual products and services that are practical and privacy-preserving. That is, self-regulation that can quickly and adroitly adapt to changing market dynamics. 

And so we come to the moving image… which can happen on any screen (desktop or mobile) on any device.  And might I add online video advertising has a multitude of technical formats – in-stream, linear, non-linear, in-banner, in-text, in-page, in-app, in-game… needless to say, this working group will be busy providing guidance for how to place the DAA Icon in...

DMA & IAB Note the Importance of Nimbly Adapting Transparency & Control Tools

August 18, 2014

DMA & IAB Note the Importance of Nimbly Adapting Transparency & Control Tools – AppChoices Gets a ‘Shout Out’

The age of “Big Data” is upon us – and in marketing, there are many applications with interest-based advertising being one such example.

Earlier this month, two of DAA’s founders – Interactive Advertising Bureau and Direct Marketing Association – both filed public comments with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, as they pertain to “Big Data and Consumer Privacy in the Internet Economy.”

IAB referred to the Digital Advertising Alliance and its Self-Regulatory Principles early in its comments: “Launched in 2009, these Self-Regulatory Principles… have been widely implemented across the online advertising industry, and are vigorously enforced through longstanding and...

Location Privacy Debate Gets an Industry Education Airing

July 31, 2014

The Digital Advertising Alliance gives precise location data heightened attention in its Application of Self-Regulatory Principles to the Mobile Environment (download third document), which we released last summer.

This past week I had the chance to participate in a Webinar offered by DAA Founding Association Interactive Advertising Bureau titled “Mobile Location Data and Privacy: What You Should Know.” A recording of the Webinar is available here.

While I testified at a Congressional hearing in June on this matter, the upshot is that our industry’s prompt, forward call for transparency, and for consumer control, for the collection and use of location data to serve interest-based ads serves to keep marketing largely free from burdensome regulation.

Yes, our self-regulation calls on advertisers to take on various responsibilities in conjunction with location data collection and use – and these responsibilities will be enforced by our...
