Data Privacy And Martech: Top Providers And Why They Play a Crucial Role in Marketing

Privacy is a critical issue, and there are varied opinions on the subject often depending upon the perspective it is viewed from. For every industry, maintaining a certain level of privacy is important and for MarTech-Kers, it is all the more!

As MarTech is booming, this ad hoc growth  – diced and sliced by plenty of intermediaries right from new ad exchanges to demand-side platforms  – all have their own specific functions. The more the intermediaries, the lesser the transparency. As there are newer technologies entering the zone, the industry can be taken by suspicion. Consumers are definitely getting to view the kind of products they want, but they are also weary of their personal privacy and security. Consumers are enjoying the benefits of MarTech because it offers the ability to freely roam across the internet without clashing with any digital paywalls.

To deal with privacy, data protection authorities came up with the General Data Protection Regulation in order to unify common data privacy laws. The rules laid down are such that the individual gets more control over their personal data. The data protection providers are doing their bit to ensure that all the data from the consumer is safeguarded.
