The European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance‘s principal purpose is to provide the ‘AdChoices Icon’ to companies involved in data-driven advertising across Europe.
Data-Driven Advertising (or OBA) consists of the collection and use of previous web-browsing activity (through cookies) to deliver relevant advertising to the consumer.
The AdChoices Icon is a consumer-facing, interactive symbol that links consumers to an online portal, YourOnlineChoices.eu, where anyone can find easy-to-understand information about data-driven advertising as well as a mechanism for exercising informed choice over tailored, personalised ads – if you so wish, you may ‘turn off’ personalised advertising by some or all companies.
We at EDAA are constantly looking at the user’s online experience and how we can improve this experience, and consequently user’s trust in the ecosystem.
