Network GDPR Complience
|Ad Network||GDPR Compatibility|
Admost provides two methods for GDPR compatibility:
[AMRSDK subjectToGDPR:] and
Publisher have to set
[AMRSDK subjectToGDPR:YES] if the user is located in European Union. Otherwise, publisher have to set
[AMRSDK subjectToGDPR:NO] . If publisher does not use this method, SubjectToGDPR status remains as unknown. In this case, Admost SDK automatically determines whether the user is in EU or not which is totally under responsibility of the publisher. If user is in EU, networks are not allowed to show personalized ads. If the user is not located in EU, the ad networks are allowed to show personalized ads.
On condition that, the publisher obtains neither user's SubjectToGDPR status nor any negative legal consequences, SubjectToGDPR must set
[AMRSDK subjectToGDPR:YES] for each user. In this case, Admost considers all users as subject to GDPR and if the consent is not allowed, Admost blocks ad networks to collect data from users. Which may cause a decrease on overall revenue performance apart from Admost.
If the publisher obtains user's consent and sets
[AMRSDK setUserConsent:YES], personalized ads would be shown to the users. Otherwise, the publisher sets
[AMRSDK setUserConsent:NO] which would block the personalized ads, unless the user is not subject to GDPR.
If the publisher does not use
[AMRSDK setUserConsent:] method , userConsent status remains unknown. In this case, if the publisher provides
[AMRSDK subjectToGDPR:YES], the ad networks do not have ability to serve personalized ads.If the publisher provides
[AMRSDK subjectToGDPR:NO], the ad networks have ability to serve personalized ads.
If the publisher does not provide both
[AMRSDK setUserConsent:] and
[AMRSDK subjectToGDPR:], Admost decides whether the user is located in EU or not which is totally under responsibility of the publisher.
If the publisher wants to obtain neither the user's consent nor any negative legal consequences, the publisher must set
[AMRSDK setUserConsent:NO] for every user. In this case, Admost considers the user has no consent, the ad networks are not allowed to serve personalized ads, except only the publisher does not provide
[AMRSDK subjectToGDPR:NO] .
