Targeted Online Advertising

Training course carries 5 hours CPD points 

Courses take place in:



Targeted online advertising and adtech are increasingly core to many organisations’ marketing strategies, but the application of data protection laws to this area can be far from clear.

This training session explains in a practical and pragmatic way what organisations need to do to ensure their use of online advertising tools comply with the GDPR, the DPA 2018, the e-Privacy Directive and other data protection rules. This is particularly relevant in the current environment, where targeted online advertising is increasingly coming to the attention of regulators.

Topics covered in this session include:

  • how the GDPR and related laws apply to online advertising
  • the lawful basis for online advertising - what now constitutes valid consent?
  • the role of Controllers (as well as Joint Controllers) and Processors in adtech - how to correctly classify the role of your organisation
  • how to review contracts with your digital marketing providers
  • conducting a Data Protection Impact Assessment for an online advertising tool
  • how to compliantly buy-in data from data vendors post GDPR
  • preview of the upcoming e-Privacy Regulation and in particular its impact on targeted advertising
  • practical tips to reduce risk when using adtech tools
