Understanding the Global Privacy Control

You will most likely have recently seen the term Global Privacy Control or GPC circling the internet. 

But what is Global Pricay Control exactly? Keep reading to discover more about GPC and how it functions 👇

📌 What is the Global Privacy Control (GPC)? 

A group of publishers, tech companies, and developers developed the Global Privacy Control (GPC) to help more consumers easily their data sharing preferences with websites directly from their browser

The GPC, like previous, Do Not Track plug-ins, assists users in communicating their intention not to be tracked online. The GPC is meant to give users another option to control their data from their browsers. GPC browser add-ons can shield users from website tracking and prevent them from sharing or selling their personal information.

Take control of your privacy. Online privacy should be accessible to everyone. It starts with a simpler way to exercise your rights

📌 How Does Global Privacy Control Function? 

Users have the option to enable the GPC signal for all websites they visit or just specific websites, much like configuring an ad-block plugin. The browser request to Not Sell Personal Information is automatically registered when visiting a website that supports GPC.

Users can configure GPC as a setting or extension on their browser/mobile device to inform the websites they visit of their privacy preferences. The GPC sends signals to the website’s users visit when it is turned on, informing each site how users want their personal information to be handled. 

📌 How Does This Apply To Me? 

Although the GPC signal hasn’t yet been widely adopted, this may change over the next year or so. iubenda is monitoring the situation, and we’ll keep you informed and ensure our services are timely compatible.
