May 25, 2018, marks the date Europe’s privacy laws will fundamentally change how we think about our personal data and the relationships we have with those companies who use it.

With one month until the GDPR comes into force, it’s important publishers are clear on their legal obligations. One of the GDPR concepts that has been widely discussed and may be broadly familiar is ‘consent’ and whether this needs to be obtained from consumers to continue running affiliate marketing activity.

With fewer than three months until GDPR comes into effect, the approach of the affiliate industry is slowly coming into focus.

Any company handling data has a legal duty to do so responsibly. In determining to what extent companies handle data, they assume a status that, in turn, has different legal liabilities.  From a data protection perspective, businesses have to decide whether they are a data processor or a data controller.  In this article, we’re going to explain the position Awin is taking and what the implications are for our advertisers.

Awin has always taken data protection obligations seriously, and will continue to do so under new European legal framework surrounding the General Data Protection Regulation and ePrivacy Regulation. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect May 25, 2018. Although ePrivacy Regulation was intended to come into effect at the same time, the wording is still likely to change from its current form, and therefore is no longer anticipated to be ready on the same date.
