How GPP different from IAB TCF 2.0 or CCPA?

GPP is built on the basis of the existing TCF 2.0 framework, also use discrete segments, supporting multiple privacy formats and signals (both existing & new ones), as a starting point.

The specification implies the development of somewhat a unified architecture for encoding and transferring signals on user consent and privacy choices (e.g. by vendor, by purpose, etc.), metadata on the context of these choices (timestamps, CMP & publisher info, etc.) and additional restrictions (i.e. jurisdictional, legal or else), if any, across the digital ad supply chain.

How is GPP used in-app?

Similar to the support for TCF, for GPP we will standardize storage locations and naming for the content of the GPP data and GPP string so that ad tags embedded in mobile apps can find the GPP data and string in a consistent way.

What is the timeline of GPP adoption?
