TRANSPARENCY AND CONSENT FRAMEWORK (TCF) VERSION 2.0 – What should I know as a publisher?

2019/04/26

IAB Europe’s Transparency & Consent Framework program to help publishers, technology vendors, agencies and advertisers ensure they are GDPR compliant regarding the access and processing of data and/or personal data. The Framework is especially relevant for publishers (first parties), who have partnered up with third parties, to enable those third parties to process user data. The program provides a standardised mechanism for requesting, storing and sharing user consent along the supply chain.

THE FRAMEWORK ENABLES WEBSITE OPERATORS & PUBLISHERS TO:

IAB Europe, alongside their partner IAB Tech Lab, is delighted to announce that the Policies and Technical Specifications for version 2.0 of the Transparency & Consent Framework (TCF) are being made available for public comment. The first iteration of the TCF was launched exactly one year ago, on 25th April 2018, to enable the digital advertising ecosystem to comply with certain obligations under the GDPR and ePrivacy Directive. The key changes in the new version are even more transparency and control for consumers, greater control for publishers, and enhanced accommodation of the GDPR’s “legitimate interests” legal basis for processing personal data, including the right to object through the TCF, alongside consent.  A new, combined transparency and consent string will consolidate all signals.

Users will see an increase in transparency and control in TCF v2.0 through:

Publishers will gain greater control and flexibility with respect to how they integrate and collaborate with their technology partners.  New “publisher restrictions” will enable them to restrict the purposes for which personal data is processed on a publisher’s site by vendors on a per-vendor basis.

By more clearly delineating different processing activities, vendors can more easily select the appropriate legal basis for their processing activities and publishers can exercise more granular control. By enhancing the TCF’s signals in a way that communicates vendor disclosure, or whether the user has objected to processing – independent of the soliciting and collection of user consent – TCF v2.0 more seamlessly facilitates lawful and transparent processing on the basis of legitimate interests.

Want to find out more?

As part of the consultation process, IAB Europe will be holding two webinars to outline the proposed changes. These 1.5-hour information sessions will include a 45-minute presentation from key contributors to TCF v2.0 and a 45-minute Q&A session to ascertain feedback and comments from participants. Please see below for registration details:

What’s Next?

Following the close of the public comment period, once the technical specifications and Policies have been finalised, detailed implementation manuals will be issued for vendors, publishers and CMPs. Additional webinars will be held for all stakeholders including agencies and advertisers.
