17-02-2020 15:00 - Digital advertising and consumer information

Éisteacht - IMCO
promotion on the Internet for a web page, advertising, calling through a shout, online alerting

With the digital revolution and in particular the ever growing online shopping sector, we notice a shift in advertising, moving from the traditional concept of a "consumer" to the "user" of websites, online platforms and social media. Users are often subject to targeted advertising that can influence their choice and constitute profiling. While advertising via traditional channels has to abide by strict rules, digital advertisement is vastly unregulated.

This has led to e.g. children being exposed to unsuitable advertisement or to social media in particular being used to promote counterfeit products.

Against this background, the aim of this event is to hear academia and stakeholders' views, both from the business side and from organisations dealing with consumer protection, on how consumers are informed and if they have a choice when it comes to online profiling (panel 1); as well as if consumers and especially vulnerable groups are protected from disguised digital advertising (panel 2).

Éisteachtaí

Faoi Riail 193 de na Rialacha Nós Imeachta, tá cead ag coiste éisteacht saineolaithe a eagrú má mheasann sé go bhfuil éisteacht den sórt sin riachtanach dá chuid oibre ar ábhar ar leith. Is féidir le dhá choiste nó níos mó éisteachtaí a thionól go comhpháirteach lena chéile. Eagraíonn formhór na gcoistí éisteachtaí go tráthrialta ionas go bhféadfaidh siad tuairimí a fháil ó shaineolaithe agus go bhféadfaidh siad pléití a bheith acu ar phríomh-shaincheisteanna. Ar an leathanach seo, gheobhaidh tú an fhaisnéis go léir a bhaineann le héisteachtaí coiste, lena n áirítear cláir, póstaeir agus aithisc na gcainteoirí.

Ceardlann

Eagraíonn na ranna beartais ceardlanna agus déantar iad a riar i gcomhréir leis an Rialachán Airgeadais. Ní gá gur ceardlanna poiblí a bheadh iontu, ach d'fhéadfadh sé go ndéanfaí iad a thionól le linn cruinnithe coiste.

Cuireann ceardlanna ar chumas na bhFeisirí ceisteanna a chur ar shaineolaithe, agus tuairimí a mhalartú leo, maidir le hábhair a bhaineann le gnó na Parlaiminte nó ar ábhair a bhaineann le cúrsaí reatha.
