IAB TCF – Decision March 8, 2024: Important news for publishers and advertisers

The European Court of Justice recently decided in an important ruling that the TC string (“Consent String”) under the IAB TCF is considered personal data within the meaning of the GDPR. In addition, it was decided that IAB Europe should be considered a “joint controller” in these cases. This highlights the shared responsibility between IAB Europe and its members in collecting users’ consent preferences.
