Marketers and publishers in France working to comply with privacy regulations and CNIL guidance face unique challenges. In response to the evolution of this unique privacy landscape, OneTrust has taken several steps to highlight our commitment to tailoring privacy and marketing solutions for our French customers.

OneTrust has worked hard to provide support to the French market since GDPR went into effect but is now taking that commitment a step further by opening a new office in Paris. This new investment offers support to French customers in several ways:

Build Trust Through Preference Management  

OneTrust has also been busy behind the scenes working to develop and release new solutions and technology to further support French customers. The French privacy community has highlighted their commitment to building transparency and trust with data subjects and customers. In response to this OneTrust has developed technology that meets the guidelines of the CNIL and assists privacy and marketing professionals build trust through preference management.
