On May 25, 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect across the European Union. GDPR replaces the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive. It is designed to standardize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

GDPR is the new regulatory framework that protects the personal data of individuals in the European Union (EU) and must be adhered to by all businesses that collect or process such data.
The GDPR expands the definition of ‘personal data’ to mean any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified by reference to an identifier. This definition provides for a wide range of personal identifiers to constitute personal data, including name, identification number, location data or online identifier, reflecting changes in technology and the way organizations collect information about people.
the user whose data is being controlled or processed
the entity that determines the purposes and means of processing the data
the entity that processes personal data on behalf of the controller
Failure to comply with GDPR can result in strict penalties for non-compliant companies. As a trusted custodian of your data (either as a controller or a processor), InMobi is fully committed to compliance and to helping you on your GDPR compliance journey.
GDPR regulation will have a far-reaching impact on the digital advertising world as it prioritizes the security and protection of the personal data of all EU residents. While it puts new regulation on all the players in the ad tech ecosystem, it is also an opportunity for creating a direct and transparent relationship with the user that respects their rights and wishes to their own personal privacy.
GDPR places new compliance measures on both the data controller and the data processor, meaning the journey to achieving compliance will be a responsibility shared between advertisers, publishers, ad networks and others partners in the ecosystem.
