The News Media Alliance and other news publisher associations united to ask Google to clarify its terms regarding compliance with the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Alliance CEO David Chavern joins Digital Content Next CEO Jason Kint, European Publishers Council Executive Director Angela Mills Wade, and News Media Association CEO David Newell in petitioning Google CEO Sundar Pichai for further information about their plans for GDPR compliance and how they expect news organizations on their platform to work within the new regulations.
In addition to addressing their concerns about how Google plans to handle GDPR compliance, the associations posed several questions to Pichai that would further explain their position.
With GDPR set to commence on May 25, the association leaders requested prompt attention to their concerns.
