Privacy & messaging

Funding Choices is moving to Ad Manager Privacy & messaging

We have begun the process of moving user messages from Funding Choices to the new Privacy & messaging page in Ad Manager. When your account is updated, all of your existing EU consent/GDPR messages and CCPA messages will be moved to these pages for you automatically. Messages with no recent traffic will be moved and unpublished. We will notify you in Funding Choices as well as Ad Manager when the move is complete.


In this article, you will find more information about moving from Funding Choices to Privacy & messaging, including:


Overview of Privacy & messaging

Our new integrated Privacy & messaging tool integrates Funding Choices’ functionality into the Ad Manager user interface to help you manage privacy choices and monetize your content. Create and manage the messages you use to obtain consent from your users. Draft new messages, display them to users, and measure user engagement to understand how users are interacting with the consent messages you've created.

To access your Privacy & messaging page, sign in to your Ad Manager account and click Privacy & messaging in the sidebar. On the Privacy & messaging page, you can manage the settings and messages related to GDPR messages and CCPA messages. 

Once your existing messages have been moved to Privacy & messaging, you will no longer have access to the EU user consent and CCPA settings pages in Ad Manager.

You can continue creating ad blocking messages and IDFA messages in the Funding Choices user interface.

Combined purposes for your own use

Purposes for your own use that you previously selected for EU consent messages on your sites or apps in Funding Choices will be merged into a single list of purposes for your own use in Privacy & messaging. This combined list of purposes will apply to all GDPR messages created using your account.

To find the combined list of purposes after your account has been updated, sign in to your Ad Manager account and click Privacy & messaging and then GDPR and then Settings and then Select purposes for your own use.

Once your messages have moved to Ad Manager Privacy & messaging, you will no longer be able to choose different purposes or legal bases for individual messages.

Combined vendors

Existing messages in Funding Choices

Your previously created messages will be moved to your Ad Manager account and appear in the Privacy & messaging page. To find your messages:

  • EU consent/GDPR messages: Click Privacy & messaging and then GDPR
  • CCPA messages: Click Privacy & messaging and then CCPA

You will no longer be able to create EU consent/GDPR messages or CCPA messages in Funding Choices or use other pages in Ad Manager to manage your GDPR and CCPA settings.

Vendors and ad technology providers for GDPR

Previously selected vendors (Funding Choices) and ad technology providers (Ad Manager) will be merged into a single list of ad partners in Ad Manager Privacy & messaging. To find the combined list of ad partners after your account has been updated, sign in to your Ad Manager account and click Privacy & messaging and then GDPR and then Settings and then Select ad partners.

The combined ad partners list will be used to request consent from users in your previously published messages as well as any new messages you create. If you don’t ask returning users to consent again, only new users will be asked to consent using this combined list. The new ad partners will not be included in the consent strings of returning users.

To ensure that the combined list will include only your preferred ad partners, you should review and adjust the vendor list in your Funding Choices account and the ad technology providers list in your Ad Manager account before June 1 to prepare your accounts for this change. After your messages have moved to the Privacy & messaging page, you can use the GDPR settings to adjust the combined list of ad partners and ask returning users to consent again, if desired.

Funding Choices vendors

Review the vendors associated with each site and app for which you have an existing EU consent/GDPR message. Remove any vendors you don’t want to appear in the combined list of ad partners.

    ""

Ad Manager ad technology providers

Review the list of selected ad technology providers (ATPs) associated with your account. Remove any ATPs you don’t want to appear in the combined list of ad partners. To review and adjust the list, click Admin and then EU user consent and review the settings in the “Select ad technology providers” section.

Logos

Sites

  • Logos you previously uploaded to the gallery in Funding Choices will be transferred to the new Privacy & messaging gallery in Ad Manager.
  • Logos are associated to a specific site and not to individual messages. When you select the option to add a logo to a message, the associated site logo will be applied.
  • You can upload a logo and link it to your site, or select a previously uploaded logo. Site logos must be in .PNG or .JPG format and 150K or less. We recommend logos that are sized 600x120px and have an aspect ratio of 5:1.

Apps

  • Logos used in app messages are based on the associated app icon within the app.
  • The logo will not appear in the message builder. The UMP SDK will automatically detect the localized app icon in the app at serving time and insert it into the message.

Site and app names

Sites

  • When your existing messages move from Funding Choices to Privacy & messaging, the site name will be included in the new message in Privacy & messaging and will also be added to the “Site name” field in the site list.
  • If you change the site name in the site list, the site name will be updated automatically in any messages using the “Site Name” macro.

Apps

  • App names used in app messages are based on the localized app name. The UMP SDK will automatically detect the localized app name at message serving and insert it into the message.

Privacy URLs

Sites

  • When your existing EU consent/GDPR messages move from Funding Choices to Privacy & messaging, the privacy URL previously associated with the individual messages will instead be associated to the site listed on the Privacy & messaging page automatically.
  • The privacy URL assigned to a site will be used for all GDPR messages associated with that site.

Apps

  • When your existing EU consent/GDPR messages move from Funding Choices to Privacy & messaging, the privacy URL previously associated with the individual messages will instead be associated to the app listed on the Privacy & messaging page automatically.
  • The privacy URL assigned to a site will be used for all GDPR messages associated with that app.
