We are happy to present you our new logo and our new website. Our well-known hexagon is retained, but is now fresher and more modern.

IAB TCF policy changes

As announced in the last newsletter the IAB has adjusted the policy for participating in the IAB TCF. Please note the following changes:

  • The design settings now show a color contrast value when setting the color for Accept-/Reject-/Settings-/Save-button. The IAB requires that the color contrast is at least 5:1 (foreground vs background). With the current update this contrast value will become mandatory. Designs that use a lower contrast value will lose the IAB compliance setting. Please check your designs.
  • With the current update we have now disabled the possibility to change the welcome text on the first layer in case when IAB TCF is activated in a CMP. Clients that want to change the text, will need additional approval by consentmanager. Existing texts will not be affected.

Some more new features and changes

  • Adjustable list icons for purposes when no checkboxes are used
  • Vendors can now be hidden
  • New macros in order to place buttons and links within the text
  • Possibility to create own stacks

… and many more.
