In collaboration with Google, on Tuesday 29th August we hosted a webinar on the Privacy Sandbox. It focused on how companies can get involved in testing and which tools are available.
As the general availability of the Privacy Sandbox APIs has been gradually rolled out over the past few months, this webinar provided a unique opportunity to all companies in the digital industry to learn more about how they can get involved in more effective and scalable testing.
Although the session was not recorded, we wanted to share some useful resources which we hope you find useful.

To further look into Privacy Sandbox testing we are holding another webinar on Tuesday 12th September with the UK’s Competition & Markets Authority (CMA). This is a must attend session to hear from an independent body on their assessment of industry feedback and the next steps needed, so register for free today.
In December, IAB Europe, in collaboration with Google, held two technical webinars to provide a deeper understanding of how the API proposals of the Privacy Sandbox will work once the third-party cookie is deprecated. .
The second session focused on personalised Ads APIs, (Topics and FLEDGE) that are being tested in Chrome as of December 2022.
If you missed this webinar or just want to dive deeper into the Privacy Sandbox, please find a table of resources on Topics and FLEDGE below for your reference:
