With more consumers going online through mobile, transactions and responses to marketing messages are generating mounds of personal data like never before. What brands, marketers and retailers should do to avoid potential privacy and security minefields is the focus of this free, hour-long webinar on April 25 at 2 p.m. ET.

Key tactical and strategic tips will be offered by executives from Medialets, the leading mobile rich media platform provider; Merkle, the top database marketing agency; and sponsor TRUSTe, a certification specialist on privacy and security.

“Marketers and retailers have every reason to be concerned: not only are privacy advocates alarmed at the use of vast quantities of data generating daily through mobile Web and application interactions, but so is the Federal Trade Commission, which is looking to better regulate the data-collection process across channels,” said Mickey Alam Khan, editor in chief of Mobile Marketer and Mobile Commerce Daily, New York.

“This webinar is designed to offer a path to responsible and effective handling of privacy and security concerns that arise from collection of transactional and marketing data through mobile devices,” he said.

“This is a subject that is not to be taken lightly. Either marketers and retailers self-regulate quickly or the debate will be defined for them by those who don’t understand the law of unintended consequences.”

So how can brands, retailers, ad agencies, publishers and companies collecting data handle consumer concerns over information resulting from mobile commerce purchases?

Indeed, how can marketers allay fears over use of this data for marketing and remarketing purposes via mobile in a multichannel context? What about location-tracking? And how to frame a response to the various bills floating around in Congress and across statehouses, including a proposed Do Not Track registry?

To answer these key issues, Mobile Marketer has put together a free webinar with a stellar panel of experts. This effort is part of a continuing series. Here are the details of the webinar sponsored by TRUSTe.
