Risk Mitigation

We will help coordinate with your technical team and necessary vendors to migrate third party tech implementations (where possible)

Future State Strategy

Support creating a ‘future state’ strategy to develop first-party data assets and drive users to an authenticated state, centralising data and creating real-time profiles

The risk of doing nothing is significant, third-party cookies are commonly used in advertising targeting & personalisation, site performance measurement, site functionality such as live chat, surveys, sharing buttons, and necessary for payments and login functionality.

DMPG can help you to become confident that you and your users aren’t going to be impacted in 2023.
