PulsePoint ® Announces GDPR-readiness for Exchange and Header Bidder Wrapper

March 1, 2018

(New York, NY – March 1, 2018) PulsePoint, the leading global authority in programmatic healthcare technology, today announced its ability to track user consent in connection with the processing of personal data across its ad exchange, well ahead of the May 25, 2018, effective date of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).   All client-side and server-side connection points have been updated.  In addition, PulsePoint announced a GDPR-ready header bidder wrapper. 

PulsePoint’s exchange and header bidder wrapper recognize whether a user has or has not consented to the processing of their personal data for delivering advertising.  This information is passed along to ad buyers.  PulsePoint also utilizes this this consent tracking for its own buying platform and Private Marketplace solutions.

“PulsePoint firmly supports all initiatives to improve transparency regarding the use of personal data,” said Sloan Gaon, CEO of PulsePoint.  “Creating trusted, positive ad experiences has always been critical to PulsePoint, and this is even more relevant as we focus on delivering meaningful programmatic health offerings that resonate with both consumers and healthcare practitioners.

PulsePoint’s long-standing commitment to delivering a leading ad experience for consumers has led to its quick adoption of the IAB Europe’s OpenRTB GDPR user consent Advisory.  To facilitate publisher’s consent tracking, PulsePoint has also created a turnkey GDPR-consent solution which can be deployed on publisher pages with minimal effort.  The tool accepts consent preferences from users and allows publishers to pass this information along to their advertising demand sources.

“PulsePoint is proud to be a leader in innovative, forward-looking solutions,” said Ezra Suveyke, PulsePoint’s CTO.  “As we advance programmatic healthcare technology, we are committed to building products that deliver data transparency and drive improved user experience. “
