IAB Europe Webinar: GDPR One Year On. Lessons Learned.

10 AM BST / 11 AM CEST – Wednesday, 17 April

IAB Europe’s Education Committee member iubenda will be leading a discussion in our upcoming webinar GDPR One Year On. Lessons Learned. Join this webinar not only to get a better understanding of what GDPR is and what it entails for you, but also to take a look at some concrete compliance traps tied to the regulation.

Following a succinct breakdown of the key aspects of GDPR, we will then review five common GDPR pitfalls and solutions to them:

  1. Thinking the GDPR does not apply to you because you’re based outside of the US or do not have EU-based users
  2. Failing to maintain proofs of consent / not being able to demonstrate that valid consent was collected
  3. Not knowing the difference between the controller and the processor, and more importantly, which applies to your situation
  4. Failing to create and maintain records of your processing activities
  5. Not collecting separate consents for separate purposes (e.g. Using a sign-up form to collect consent for only for product updates while intending to send both product updates and third-party offers to the email list)

The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session, giving you the opportunity to have your most pressing questions answered by experts in the field.
