NAI Featured in DatingAdvice.com Article on Sensitive Data and Consumer Privacy

NAI was featured today on DatingAdvice.com in an article, The Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) Ensures Top Ad Companies Don’t Collect Your Sensitive Browsing Information Without Consent, that focuses on the role NAI plays in promoting responsible data collection and consumer privacy.

“The Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) recognizes the need for discretion as well as personalization in online advertising,” wrote Dating Advice.com editor Hayley Matthews. “This groundbreaking organization seeks to promote consumer privacy and trust by creating and enforcing high standards for responsible data collection and use in online advertising and in mobile environments among its members.”
