New integration for Slack, MS Teams and more

With the current update, a new integration function for Slack, MS Teams, Zapier and n8n is now available in the system. The function conveniently notifies you in Slack, Teams or any other tool about important changes and news (e.g. new cookies found) in your CMP account. You no longer need to actively log into the CMP to check for updates. The system sends you a message directly from the backend to the appropriate channel.
The new integration functions can be found under: Menu> Account> Integrations.

IAB Europe on ‘Consent or Pay’ models

IAB Europe responds to the EDPB ‘s recent opinion on the “Consent or Pay” model. This model, introduced by major online platforms such as Meta, gives users the choice of consenting to data processing for personalized advertising or paying for an ad-free service. In its statement of 23 April, IAB Europe expresses its concern that such models could create legal uncertainty for companies. They also fear that the EDPB misrepresents the “consent or pay” model as a system that could treat data protection rights as a luxury that only a few can afford.

Data protection in Germany: New developments and requirements

The data protection landscape in Germany continues to develop. This development is driven by increased interest from the population and the government as well as by important court decisions such as the ruling of the Cologne Higher Regional Court, which calls for simple and user-friendly consent options for cookies. Regional reports highlight pressing issues such as health data protection and the use of artificial intelligence and call for regulatory innovations. Companies must therefore remain vigilant and adapt to meet the high legal requirements and expectations for correct consent mechanisms.

Google supports the IAB Global Privacy Platform (GPP) in additional US states

Google recently began supporting the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s (IAB) Global Privacy Platform (GPP) to help publishers and Consent Management Platforms (CMPs) comply with data protection laws through a standardized framework. Google is now starting to support the US states via GPP: California, Virginia, Colorado and Connecticut. This move is part of Google’s overall strategy as support for the previous Standard (“US Privacy String”) expires. Make sure now that your platform remains compliant and efficient with the consentmanager CMP: consentmanager

New Google CMP requirements for Swiss publishers

Note: Update your iOS SDK

As mentioned in our release notes, Apple recently updated its requirements for app developers and now requires the integration of a privacy manifest into apps. If you are using our iOS SDK, we strongly recommend updating to version 2.x so that your app includes the required manifest files. This update is necessary to ensure compliance with Apple’s latest privacy standards.

For detailed instructions on how to implement these changes and download the latest SDK version, please visit our help page: https://help. consentmanager .net/books/cmp/page/ios-4-apple-privacy-manifest
