  • Opt-In – Priority Regulation GDPR Puts Pressure on Industries with a High Proportion of P&L within Third-Party Marketing of User Data
    With the upcoming introduction of the new GDPR regulations, businesses such as the media enterprises and marketers are facing new challenges. The new regulations require the consent of users via opt-in, in order to use and process personal data. Hence, these rules might have significant influence on business models and the way data is being stored. Especially for media companies, the use of personal data has become a key driver for its business. Thus, the current changes are expected to create a decrease of roughly 30% in revenues, caused by the fact that the consent of personal data use has to be requested again. Based on the provided insights, three solutions are being proposed, in order to showcase how to apply these in the business setting, highlighting that none of these fully comply with regulatory requirements. As a result, the creation of personalised content is at risk. In the near future it has become of utmost importance for companies to re-formulate new solutions, in order to be able to elevate, process and pass on personal data.
