If you weren’t keeping up with all the relevant proposals, here is a summary of what’s happening and why it’s relevant. The Topics API is replacing Google’s FLoC proposal, which assigned users to certain audience groups by web behavior, tracked by the browser. Users were still being monitored by Google, much in the same way cookies track users across sites. The main difference was that site visitation was not broadcast under FLoC, but was confined to the browser. While this improved user privacy in some ways, FLoC was not tested in Europe due to GDPR issues, including: Lack of user consent. Users were automatically assigned to FLoCs, which is clearly not compatible with GDPR ...

Announcing New CTV Suitability Categories for Pre-bid Contextual Targeting
