How GDPR will impact Facebook, Google and online advertising

“In between [publishers and advertisers] are innumerable unknown and unknowable parties, who are doing many backroom deals with each other and massively misusing personal data. What that means is you cannot release personal data in the middle,” he argues.

“There is a question about how on-the-hook brands are, not only for their own stuff but for everyone else’s as well; and not only because they pay for it all to exist and to operate the way it does – and to insist that it operate the way it does in some cases – but also because they may be feeding data that they hold into this beast.”

While Google has already announced it will be offering publishers an option for showing non-personalised targeted ads, many publishers will, of course, make every effort to secure the consent needed from consumers to use personal data. The IAB has issued guidelines to the industry on how to go about seeking it.

But according to Ryan, research shows success rates from such efforts will be “low, low, low”. Furthermore, brands and publishers must be satisfied they have given sufficient information about the purposes for which data will be processed. Within each link of the supply chain there are “countless purposes”, he points out, adding that simply stating as a brand or publisher that you will process personal data to serve personalised advertising is unlikely to satisfy GDPR.
