Agree. GDPR and programmatic ads are totally incompatible.

Basically anything that hurts American tech companies is intentional on the part of the EU. That's why they're keeping both eyes shut on the plethora of violations many European companies are doing.


You have to report the violating companies. There are no government organizations actively looking for violations.
