IAB Europe preemptively announces Belgian DPA likely to bring suit

With a ruling still months away, IAB Europe proactively announced its Transparency and Consent Framework (TCF) will likely be found in breach of GDPR by Belgium’s data protection authority. TCF ‘consent’ pop-ups appear on 80%+ of European websites and apps, and TCF claims users have control over how their data is used. However, if this is found be noncompliant with regulations, it adds to pressure within the EU for a ban on behavioral advertising, something already being pushed by the EU Parliament.
