DATT 2021: Privacy, Trust & Personalization in a “Cookieless” World

1:05 PM - 1:30PM ET

For years, publishers and advertisers have relied on third-party cookies for tracking, data collection, and ad personalization and targeting. The end of third-party cookies does not mean cookie banners, consent management platforms, or personalization are going away. It does mean that marketers should begin to think outside the box when it comes to remarketing strategies and experiment with other diverse strategies to maximize personalization without relying on third-party cookies. Join this session with OneTrust and Adobe to learn how to deepen customer relationships and enhance experiences through capturing and activating first-party data in a compliant manner.
