What publishers need to know about managing consent on AMP
September 21, 2020
As publishers move to complete their TCF v2 migrations, AMP pages (Accelerated Mobile Pages) are one piece of the puzzle that can’t be left unaddressed. Given the high volume of traffic driven by mobile and AMP views, foregoing something like a CMP to manage consent exposes publishers to possible legal risk and revenue loss.
Implementing a privacy solution for AMP presents unique challenges and limitations. Here are some questions to keep in mind when collecting consent from your AMP viewers.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE AMP TRAFFIC IN REGIONS WITH DIFFERENT PRIVACY REGULATIONS?
For a global audience, you’ll want to cover all your bases with a combined solution that can meet different regional privacy regulations. After integrating the Sourcepoint CMP with your AMP inventory, the <amp-geo> component can detect if a user is in the EEA to trigger a TCF v2 preference manager. Likewise, a US user could receive a CCPA appropriate “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” message. A combined solution ensures that consent is collected from regions that require it, in the manner that is required.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE COUNTRY-SPECIFIC LIMITATIONS?
Users want to receive messaging in their preferred language, and AMP should be no different. Check to see that your AMP consent solution can detect the user’s browser language to deliver a consent message in that language. With Sourcepoint, you may also edit the consent language parameter to default to a specific language regardless of the user’s browser settings.
WHICH VENDORS DO YOU ALLOW ON YOUR AMP INVENTORY?
ARE YOUR CONSENT MESSAGES GOOGLE AMP COMPATIBLE?
Google’s limitations set design parameters for consent messages that can be surfaced on AMP. Your consent message must be a bottom message (which is anchored to the bottom, as opposed to a modal message, or pop-up) that can cover between 30-60% of the screen. The user also needs to be able to scroll behind the message. Make sure to consult with your developers on your team and your CMP’s team to ensure that your message lies within Google’s technical limitations.
