2024 Privacy Changes?

Changes are coming!

Getting Privacy Ready in 2024

The deadline for the deprecation of third-party cookies has been pushed forward to early 2025. However, it remains imperative to maintain a core focus on privacy-centric practices throughout the year. Coupling the loss of cookies with the EU crackdown on BigTech firms, and the rise in privacy legislation, brands will need to put compliance, data centricity, and consumer privacy at the heart of all they do in 2024 and beyond. Leveraging first-party data beyond the technical aspects will play a key role in fostering relationships, driving business growth, and navigating the digital landscape under increasing privacy constraints.

What does this mean for you?

The Risks of Non-Compliance

The phasing out of third-party cookies, technological advancements, updated regulations, and shifts in consumer preference all have significant implications for various aspects of online advertising and the digital ecosystem. Failing to keep up with these changes will critically compromise your data measurement, limit your ad-targeting & personalization, and diminish retargeting capabilities. It's crucial to pay attention to these shifts to ensure the sustainability and effectiveness of your digital marketing strategies.

What Key Factors Will Impact You This Year?

Third-Party Cookies

Google's progressive steps toward phasing out third-party cookies intensify the need for privacy-focused marketing strategies, emphasizing ethical sourcing and utilization of customer data. With the imminent demise of third-party cookies early next year, maintaining the status quo is no longer viable. Now is the time to explore innovative approaches and optimize first-party data strategies to thrive in this evolving privacy landscape.

Regulatory Updates

As the data privacy law landscape continues to evolve, it’s crucial to stay updated on global regulations to maintain trust and compliance. The Digital Markets Act (DMA) by the European Commission aims to standardize platform regulation in the EU, impacting users and Google advertisers in the EEA and UK. Additionally, California's regulatory framework intensifies with the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), enhancing consumer privacy rights and imposing stricter obligations on businesses, reinforcing the importance of robust data protection measures for organizations worldwide.
