We have been under the General rules of data protection for five days and the world is not over! Who would have said it… ????
The Internet is still working for everyone, despite the intentions of some international websites to simply block European traffic.
The call centers have adapted and can continue to do their job, even though they now have to be more stringent with the origin of the numbers they call.
After the barrage of notifications to our Inbox, we still receive all the newsletters we want from our favorite websites, and less than those that disgust us.
And what’s more important to our advertisers and Digital Menta, online advertising campaigns continue to serve ads and provide profitable results, even though some strategy has been limited since the 25th.
Conclusion, we have all exceeded the process with good note. Very nice!

Let us see, then, how the GDPR has affected the different areas of work in which we are moving.

We start with online advertising that is what concerns us most, and there we are calm. After a week of activity and with some preparation and adaptation of through, we have not seen a negative effect on our online performance campaigns. As we are an agency specializing in carrying accounts of ecommerce and generation of Leads, we were somewhat concerned and did an investigation (more details below) to prepare for any eventuality.
Yes, it is true, you can no longer use virtually indiscriminate data bases of our advertisers to make Remarketing or similar audiences, but that was never a pillar of our strategies.
It is also true that now we have to be clearer in the collection of personal data and we think it is optimal, because we have always been oriented to obtain high quality contact data, with the maximum interest possible of the individual to be contacted.
Now we have fewer options in our advertising arsenal, but we are far from seeing an effect on our ability to show ads of the utmost relevance.
So what has really changed, if not in the PPC, in the rest of the digital environment?
It is our opinion that the European Union Regulation (GDPR) provides greater peace of mind to Internet users and clients of all types of businesses. In many cases they were unfounded concerns because we have never handled personal data directly and could not identify the user individually. But, the strategies and technological tools of the companies able to manage the Big Data had reached such wingspans, that the ‘ ordinary citizen ‘ did not understand how he was served the advertisements or why his identity never ran danger.
Currently, the use of massive databases has reached such a degree of sophistication that it is possible to know something about a person before she knows it and in areas where there are commercial interests that can benefit from it , these uses have been taken to their maximum expression (within the current technological constraints, which remain many).

For all these reasons, despite the fact that the new legislation means a considerable increase in the complexity of managing personal data and delegates many responsibilities to the companies, we believe that a review was needed to reassure the opinion Public that you are really watching over your rights.
If this is the best, it’s to be seen and it probably won’t be. But at the very least it’s a step in the right direction. Bravo Europe!
And for those who still want to understand in general what this regulation means for companies, here are some remarks that will soon be common knowledge.
If instead you are more interested in the effect that the GDPR can have on your digital advertising campaigns, go to the last paragraph, we have a little surprise for you.
General aspects that incorporates THE GDPR and affecting the majority of companies:
In summary, THE GDPR will be beneficial for the majority of individuals and companies affected, although at the beginning it means a considerable effort to adapt.
To help in this adaptation, from Digital Menta We have thought of offering a gift. Given that a few days have passed since the implementation of the regulation and we have been able to observe the limited consequences that it has had, we dare to make available to all our readers a list of advice and indications on the GDPR.
Remember, this is not a legal advice on the RGDP, but there you will find:
