In this awaited and exciting episode Milla and Pilvi are experiencing a true fangirl moment as they welcome Tobias Judin, the Head of International Department at the Norwegian Data Protection Authority, Datatilsynet.

Accompanied by our new co-host Jyri they will dive into to discuss the Meta case on its rocky road with its legal basis for behavior based advertising.
Norwegian DPA has not only talked the talk but it has also walked the walk: as Tobias states, they see that the GDPR has to be enforced now and that the GDPR does have tools to do that.

We discuss, among other things, how has the Norwegian DPA become the renegade DPA that takes such firm action? What has the road been like from 2018 to the EAA wide ban? What does Tobias think about the newest Meta solution: consent or pay?
We also touch upon subjects such as does transparency matter at all? How do you measure it? What about the IAB case and advertising funding journalism? Is the new “consent or pay” just Meta buying time and gaslighting?

We also have a big scoop in the episode, which we recognize with “cool cool”. This and much more awaits you.
