As data protection restrictions tighten, advertisers are becoming more aware of the importance of ethical and transparent data use. The Transparency and Consent Framework 2.0 (TCF 2.0) went into effect on 15 August, encouraging publishers and providers of advertising technology solutions to be more transparent about consumer data protection. On the other hand, it has given users of digital media greater control over what information they share and with whom. As various regulations on consumer data privacy and protection restrict the access to third party, a more precise version of contextual targeting, i.e. contextual intelligence, is becoming more popular.
