Your inquiry met with our response, and in this article, we will delve into the Data Protection Laws of the APAC region. In August 2023, India passed the Digital Personal Data Protection Act (DPDP), a significant law for data protection globally. This comes as part of a broader trend in the Asia-Pacific region, where countries like China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam have also enacted comprehensive data privacy regulations in recent years.

APAC video streaming has not only revolutionized the region’s film industry but also transformed consumer behavior. With the emergence of numerous platforms, viewers can now access content on any device, from mobile phones to large TV screens. This long-anticipated shift signifies an impressive change in how consumers engage with content, moving away from traditional television consumption via cable or satellite services. 

Ad servers are a part of advertising technology employed by publishers and advertisers. Their main role is to manage, distribute, and monitor online advertisements efficiently.

How Should Publishers and Advertisers Act in a Post-Cookies World

In short, the cookie phase-out means advertisers must find new ways to target ads that respect user privacy while still being effective.
