COOKIES

def.
Small text files that a website puts into the browser when a user visits that website, enabling the site to recognise and identify users and build up a browsing history on the user overtime.

TRACKING PIXELS

def.
A pixel is a piece of code the publisher places on its site to fire a cookie. It collects and sends information directly to servers, allowing users to be followed across all of their devices. Advertisers can then link their various marketing efforts across websites and ads.

TAGS

def.
Tags hold javascript code that contains one or more tracking pixels.

FINGERPRINTING

def.
Pieces of information which are weak identifiers on their own (such as screen size and colour depth, system fonts, and time zone) can be combined into a ‘fingerprint’, a strong identifier that uniquely identifies an individual browser or device.

GDPR

def.
GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation. Released in 2018, this act updated the European Union’s previous data privacy regulations from 1995. GDPR standardizes data protection in all 28 EU countries with strict guidelines on how companies can use and store PII, or personally identifiable information.

CCPA

def.
The California Consumer Privacy Act, effective in 2020, allows consumers to take control of their data. They have the legal right to know what information companies store about them, why the data is collected, and how the data is shared.

CPRA

def.
Expected to be enforced in 2023. It grants consumers more control over “sensitive personal information” such as a person’s race, health, Social Security number and recent locations using GPS technology.

ATT

def.
The AppTrackingTransparency feature moves from the old method where you had to opt-out of sharing your Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA) to an opt-in model. This means that every app will have to ask you up front whether it is ok for them to share your IDFA with third parties including networks or data brokers.

ITP

def.
Intelligent Tracking Prevention, or ITP, blocks all third-party cookies and fingerprinting by default on ALL iOS browsers and macOS Safari.

PRIVACY SANDBOX

def.
Google proposed Privacy Sandbox to introduce privacy-preserving APIs to aid in tracking transparency. The APIs enable the browser (Chrome) to act on a user’s behalf to ensure data is never shared without their knowledge or consent.

SAMESITE

def.
Chrome version 80 introduced a new secure-by-default model that assumes all cookies should be protected from third-party access unless web developers specify otherwise. Specifically, only cookies with “SameSite=None; Secure” enabled by the website developer are available for third-party access; all other cookies are limited to first-party access.

SKadNetwork

def.
Apple’s aggregate method for measuring attribution on mobile devices for iOS apps. It aims to provide conversion data to advertisers without revealing personally identifiable information (PII) or device identifiers.

MAID / IDFA

def.
Mobile advertising IDs (MAIDs) are strings of alphanumeric characters assigned to mobile devices. On iOS devices they are called IDFA (Identifier for Advertisers), and on Android devices they are called AAID (Android Advertising ID) 20. MAIDs are unique, and available to all mobile apps (without the need for user permission) and advertisers who embed code in those apps.
