Australia’s Privacy Laws in A Global Context

Upcoming Events & Training
Thursday, 22 July 2021
11am - 12pm

IAB gathered legal experts from eleven jurisdictions around the globe to examine how jurisdiction-specific privacy laws apply to the digital advertising industry, how the nuances in each of these laws create differing obligations for participants in digital ads transactions, and how a global privacy string (being developed by the IAB Tech Lab) could help address the challenge of demonstrating compliance with various jurisdictions’ notice and consent requirements.  

This webinar will specifically highlight the results of our examination of Australia’s privacy laws and, more importantly, the practical impact of these laws on digital advertising participants and the transactions they typically undertake. We will also discuss how Australia’s laws fit into a global context and the nuances in how Australia strikes its own balance between transparency into how information about consumers is processed for digital advertising and consumers’ ability to be informed and make choices about that processing. Finally, we will turn our focus to the set of technical standards being developed by the IAB Tech Lab to aid participants in digital ads transactions in communicating their compliance with differing local privacy requirements. 

Please join our panellists on July 22, 2021 at 11am as we discuss the implications of Australia’s privacy laws on the digital advertising industry.
