Quality consent

This section covers general, and campaign type specific, requirements.

General requirements#

When a customer views a campaign on the Rokt marketplace, the Campaign copy must include sufficient detail to answer the following questions in order to generate valid consent:

  1. Who am I engaging with (which advertiser)?
  2. What am I being offered—product, service, discount, or offer?
  3. If I engage, is there any ongoing communication that I should expect? Specifically, will I:
    1. Receive emails (from either the advertiser or Rokt). The content/benefit/purpose of the emails must be clear.
    2. Receive a call from the advertiser (phone referral campaign).
    3. Be directed to a calendar subscription and receive ongoing updates on events (calendar referral campaign).

The campaign Image or logo is not guaranteed to display, so all of the above must be clearly communicated in the campaign copy.

Further details about requirements around consent and future engagement with a customer are set out below.

For all campaign types, the call to action must always be included in the campaign creative or response copy.

The response copy must not be a term that could be confused with broader site navigation commands (e.g., next, continue, proceed, advance). The only permissible negative call to action for non-internal campaigns is “No thanks” and its non-English equivalents.

Email subscription campaigns#

Requirements

Campaign copy must clearly indicate:

  • What advertiser is promoting the offer.
  • What is being offered, e.g., product, service, or discount.
  • That there will be ongoing communication.

Examples of acceptable phrases to include within the character limit:

  • Common examples: "join newsletter," "sign up to emails," "receive emails," "enroll in emails," and "get emails to your inbox."
  • Phrases like “sign up for [brand name]” or “subscribe to [brand name]" can be used, provided it’s clear to the customer that they will receive ongoing communication.

Notes

  • If the campaign has a advertiser-specific privacy policy or terms and conditions, they must explicitly note that emails will be sent.
  • Campaigns can only send up to five advertiser emails to customers for both Rokt Ecommerce and Rokt Ads campaigns configured from the Rokt platform.
