StrikeAd announces definitive Guide to Mobile Tracking and Privacy in light of Congressional Activity

Explains how to maintain effective consumer targeting and tracking in light of Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights

New York, NY – 22 March 2012 StrikeAd, the New York and London based mobile advertising specialist, today announced the availability of its White Paper: 'Mobile Privacy Demystified: Tracking and Privacy – myths, myth busting and solutions'. StrikeAd, the field leader in the tracking and measurement of mobile ad campaigns, has produced the White Paper to provide advertisers with a comprehensive 'all you need to know' guide to understand how to track mobile downloads and target consumers effectively, while remaining in-line with industry recommendations.

The White Paper examines the different options available to advertisers to ensure consumer details are kept private – from using cookies to fingerprinting. There is increasing pressure from industry-leading bodies to protect individuals from being tracked without their consent and third parties are increasingly being required to explicitly ask the user to allow the cookie to be set initially, and many sites and apps need to facilitate this. The White Paper outlines just how advertisers can do this without losing the ability to track downloads, and retain the ability to target consumers effectively whilst not compromising their personal data.

"We wrote this White Paper in light of the increased awareness we're witnessing from Congress and the FTC, to help inform advertisers looking to tighten up their privacy in mobile campaigns, and particularly to provide practical applications to stay compliant." said Alex Rahaman, CEO of StrikeAd. "We hope this document will help our agency clients to understand the different advice which is being offered across the US, to ensure they are able to protect consumers' privacy appropriately."
