The joint industry task force plans to discuss with policymakers, businesses and consumers the public policy issues that have been raised about online behavioral advertising.

The group says they are currently discussing self-regulation from the Federal Trade Commission’s proposed self-regulatory principles. including education and transparency, consumer notification and choice, data security, and self-regulatory enforcement.

The initiative will focus on concerns about the use of online consumer data for behavioral advertising purposes while maintaining advertising that supports a broad range of free online content.

“Effective self-regulation of interactive advertising will help ensure that our industry can continue to evolve and innovate, offering consumers what they want when they want it,” said Randall Rothenberg, President and CEO of the IAB.

“The value of online advertising to consumers and businesses cannot be understated, particularly in these challenging economic times.”
