DMA and OneTrust offer marketers GDPR compliance tools

OneTrust and the Data & Marketing Association (DMA) have entered a strategic partnership to equip marketers with the tools, training and resources needed to successfully build, implement and scale responsible marketing programmes that comply with global privacy laws including the GDPR and CCPA.

As the DMA’s Responsible Marketing Partner, OneTrust will work with the organisation to provide software tools, training, resources and thought leadership to help marketing departments to responsibly manage, protect and administer customer data.

The GDPR and CCPA created new compliance challenges for marketers to maintain compliance while delivering customised user experiences. The partnership includes supporting the “Data Privacy: An industry perspective 2019” research. This latest survey is currently open to anyone working in the data & marketing industry to share their latest views.

The partnership includes:

  • Resources & Research: OneTrust and the DMA will produce joint surveys and webinars focused on the topics most relevant to marketers, including how to comply with the GDPR and the latest regulatory amendment to the CCPA.
  • Free In-Person Workshops: OneTrust and the DMA will partner at select PrivacyConnect and MarketingConnect workshops, free, local events that equip privacy and marketing professionals to connect, share experiences, and learn the latest regulatory requirements and implementation best practices.
  • The DMA’s Data Summit: OneTrust will also headline the DMA’s Data Protection Summit, taking place on 28 February in London.

“As the industry association representing the data and marketing industry, acting responsibly while also creating engaging experiences that put customers first is a core tenet of our Code. In OneTrust we have found a partner that shares these key values and the belief in a customer-centric approach to data and privacy,” said Rachel Aldighieri, MD of the Data & Marketing Association (DMA). “The partnership will also offer added benefit to our members, offering them access to a range of additional tools, training and resources to not just comply with privacy laws, but truly put the customer at the heart of their business. Giving them a competitive advantage by developing trust through their approach to data and privacy.”

“Becoming the DMA’s Responsible Marketing Partner was a natural fit; we share a mission to equip marketers for success while maintaining compliance with the evolving regulatory environment,” said Kabir Barday, CEO and Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP), OneTrust. “We’re excited to build upon our existing partnership and launch new research and resources for marketers. Together we’re able to provide members access to the OneTrust PreferenceChoice suite of marketing compliance tools, resources, research and best practices to responsibly manage and protect customer data.”

Alibaba launches global affiliate program with Awin

Alibaba has expanded its partnership with Awin to launch an affiliate program in the UK, US, EU, LATAM and APAC regions. 

Alibaba.com is the second Alibaba Group brand to launch its affiliate program on Awin.com, following the success of the AliExpress program, facilitated by two dedicated publisher events in London and Berlin in the run up to Singles Day.

Alibaba.com and AliExpress are the group’s two biggest retail marketplaces outside of China, covering both B2B and B2C sides of the business. 

Affiliate marketing is one of the most important channels for Alibaba.com, especially for big sale promotions, including its month-long sale in September, along with ambitious plans for its global program, with the aim of growing the number of daily unique visitors to 1,000,000 per day by the end of 2019. 

David James, Global Account Management Director at Awin.com, said: “Awin is very excited to have Alibaba live across our global network.  Building upon the incredibly successful partnership between our two companies, the new global programs for Alibaba will further allow publishers to take advantage of the meteoric rise of China’s largest ecommerce platform.  Together with AliExpress, these exciting new retailers allow consumers and businesses to tap into a vast array of goods, often directly from the manufacturer. Awin is proud to be partnering with Alibaba to grow its international presence across the globe.” 

Heaven Li, Senior Manager, Traffic Management at Alibaba Group, said:“As the major network player and with a great reputation in the industry, we are very excited to have Awin on board. We have seen a great conversion rate so far, so we believe there is huge potential for our partnership.

“Awin has an extensive publisher portfolio across all verticals, which can help us explore new opportunities. We look forward to doing business together with new affiliate partners, particularly for our September promotion which is not to be missed.”
