Join our publishing industry experts who will provide very specific guidance for US-based organizations and organizations with headquarters in the US and Europe in understanding:

  • How to make sure you are not only on the right/compliant path, but remain there as the state of the EU-US Privacy Shield changes over the course of 2017 and into 2018
  • What does compliance mean for a commercial publisher vs a 501c3 publisher?
  • Which resources must be monitored to stay up-to-date of policy changes
  • The difference between the GDPR and the EU-US Privacy Shield policy and how they relate

This webinar will also provide guidance on where US-based companies needing to be in compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield should be monitoring on an ongoing basis for updates, along with key dates to watch for. 

 This webinar will answer FAQs like:

  • How should user marketing data be managed to ensure compliance?
  • What kind of opt in permissions do publishers need when engaging with users?
  • What resources should be consistently monitored for policy changes? And are there key dates to be aware of?


Who should attend?

Anyone involved in setting legal and business policy for publishing organizations - both commercial and 501c3, especially those that may not have in-house staff specializing in EU-US data and security policies that affect your users and your business.
