Biden, flush with cash, boosts ad spending in battlegrounds

  Biden, flush with cash, boosts ad spending in battlegrounds WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s massive campaign war chest was supposed to finance an onslaught of attacks that would destroy Joe Biden’s chance of winning in November. But after months of profligate spending, the attacks did little to diminish the Democratic nominee's standing. Trump’s formidable cash advantage has evaporated. And it is Biden who over the past month has outspent Trump by nearly double, advertising data shows. Coming off a record-shattering $364 million August fundraising haul, Biden is pouring tens of millions of dollars into a torrent of ads airing in battleground states.

Is the Apple brand using usage data from iPhones to deliver targeted ads without the phone owners knowing? This is the thesis defended by the Noyb organization during a complaint filed Monday in Spain and Germany.

A group led by Max Schrems , an Austrian privacy activist, filed a complaint against Apple on Monday with the competent authorities in Spain and in Berlin , accusing the US group of using data from iPhone users without their consent.

The complaint by the Noyb organization is the first such action against Apple, which claims, in its advertisements, to offer its users a high level of protection of their personal data.

A code to offer targeted advertising?

The Vienna-based digital rights group criticizes the California giant for creating a tool, dubbed Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA), which automatically creates a passcode on every iPhone. This code, stored on the device, can be used, according to Noyb, by Apple or advertisers to serve users with targeted advertising.

“Apple places cookie-like codes on their phones without user consent. This is a flagrant violation of EU privacy laws ”, denounces Stefano Rossetti, Noyb's lawyer, referring to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) .

Is user consent missing?

According to Stefano Rossetti, the GDPR requires user consent for the installation and use of this data.

Noyb believes that the new rules planned by Apple to regulate the use of this code will not change the root of the problem, because they only restrict access by third parties, not that of Apple. "The IDFA should not only be restricted, but permanently abolished" , insists Stefano Rossetti.

Solicited, neither Apple, nor data protection authorities in Spain and Berlin immediately responded to requests for comment.
