Privacy & messaging

Funding Choices has moved to Ad Manager Privacy & messaging

We have completed the process of moving user messages from Funding Choices to the new Privacy & messaging page in Ad Manager. All of your existing EU consent/GDPR messages and CCPA messages have been moved to these pages for you automatically. Messages with no recent traffic have been moved and unpublished. 

 


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 existing messages related to GDPR and CCPA, as well as other message types. 

Now that your messages have been moved to Privacy & message, you no longer have access to the EU user consent and CCPA settings pages previously located within the Policy section of Ad Manager. These settings will now appear in Privacy & messaging.

Existing messages in Funding Choices

Your previously created messages have been moved to your Ad Manager account. To find your messages:

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

You can no longer 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) have been merged into a single list of ad partners in 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. You can use the GDPR settings in Privacy & messaging to adjust the combined list of ad partners and ask returning users to consent again, if desired.

Logos

Sites

  • Logos you previously uploaded to the gallery in Funding Choices have been 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 150KB 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

  • The site name is included in new messages in Privacy & messaging and 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

  • The privacy URL associated with your previously existing individual messages has automatically been associated with the site listed on the Privacy & messaging page instead.
  • The privacy URL assigned to a site will be used for any GDPR messages associated with that site.

Apps

  • The privacy URL associated with your previously existing individual messages has automatically been associated with the app listed on the Privacy & messaging page instead.
  • The privacy URL assigned to an app will be used for any GDPR messages associated with that app.
