AdPlugg is now fully compliant with the GDPR. The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is an EU law governing personal data and how it can be collected and stored.
Using AdPlugg For GDPR Compliant Ad Serving
AdPlugg is a great fit for serving ads under the GDPR. This is because AdPlugg doesn’t store Personal Information regarding the end users that the system serves ads to.
This is not true of some other advertising systems. Some ad systems have been pushing personalization. This is where you might see an ad for diapers on a car site because the ad system knows who you are and that you have a baby.
AdPlugg has taken a more contextual approach. With AdPlugg, a site about cars will typically show ads for cars, car parts, etc.
Which ad is shown is up to placement by the Publisher/Advertiser and not at all based on Personal Data.
Because of this, serving ads using AdPlugg is exempt under Recital 26 (Not applicable to anonymous data) of the GDPR.
