Event Synopsis:

Today, most people own an electronic device connected to the Internet. It is possible to identify and tract anyone, except the ‘protected elite’, with online tracking, of which the victim is unaware, to provide Digital Advertising; among other things.

Smartphones, tablets, personal computers, connected TVs, and even smart watches and other ‘wearables’ are traceable. In the case of ‘device finger-printing’, users generally cannot prevent it. ‘Zombie’ cookies circumvent a user’s ability to delete all relevant cookies. Some advertising tracking services employ these methods, and companies may unknowingly receive copies of re-spawned cookies in direct violation of their own privacy policies.

In 2013, the Federal Trade Commission filed against Epic Marketplace over a controversial tracking technology using ‘history-sniffing’ technology to create marketing profiles of users based on sites they had visited; including financial and medical sites (incontinence, pregnancy, arthritis, etc.).

In November 2015, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Bureau of Consumer Protection will hold a workshop to discuss use of Cross-device Tracking Systems and to suggest how advertising companies might be able to mitigate the risks of regulatory action by the FTC and other authorities when they are using such ‘targeted advertising’.

In this two-hour, live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will help companies to better understand the significant privacy violation risks that firms may face when using Digital Advertising methods. Speakers will provide an in-depth review and discussion of the latest technologies and help companies and their counsel Understanding the FTC’s Guides in Digital Advertising. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing an effective and compliant digital advertising program.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
· The FTC’s Disclosure Guidelines
· True or False – The Reliability of Online Reviews and FTC Enforcement and Competitor Litigation
· Cross-Device Tracking: What is it and What Can We Expect from the FTC
