Case Study Details

Brief Summary

Project 3 Consulting resolved critical compliance issues with user consent management for a major automotive company. By implementing the Usercentrics consent management platform (CMP), we helped ensure adherence to data privacy regulations like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These regulations are designed to protect users by giving individuals more control over their personal data. For example, if a visitor opts out of cookies on a website, the platform must respect this choice and not track their activity.

The Challenges to Better Consent Management

Client X’s pain points include:

  • Lack of maintenance led to malfunctioning consent management.
  • They didn’t have a dedicated team to stay on top of consent management and lacked the necessary expertise.
  • Tags fired despite visitors opting out, risking non-compliance with CCPA and GDPR.
  • Potential legal violations posed significant business and financial risks, including hefty fines, reputational damage, and loss of customer trust.
