The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) is an Act of Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland which defines UK law on the processing of data on identifiable living people. It is the central piece of legislation that governs the protection of personal information in the UK. Although the Act itself does not mention privacy, it was enacted to bring British law into line with the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, which required member states to protect people's fundamental rights and freedoms and in particular their right to privacy concerning the processing of personal data.

There are different ways of advertising to people online. Some involve displaying the same adverts to everyone who visits a particular website. Online behavioural advertising involves showing you a selection of adverts based on sites visited. This targeted approach aims to tell you about products or services you are likely to be interested.
Organisations and companies have always used information about their customers to market goods and services to them. For many people, this will be a welcome and useful feature of using the internet, particularly when shopping online. However, some people dislike this approach and don’t want their buying and browsing habits used like this. Websites should provide an easy way for you to opt out of receiving such adverts or recommendations. You should be told when cookies are being used and given choices about whether you agree to this use.
The Internet Advertising Bureau provides information on how online behavioural advertising works and gives links to several organisations that enable you to opt out of behavioural advertising. Online behavioural advertising (also known as interest-based advertising) is a way of serving advertisements on the websites you visit and making them more relevant to you and your interests. Shared interests are grouped together based upon previous web browsing activity and internet users are then served advertising which matches their shared interests. In this way, advertising can be made as relevant and useful as possible. Relevant ads can also be delivered based upon the website content you have just been viewing. This is known as "retargeting".

If you have a complaint about behavioural advertising you can contact the Advertising Standards Authority.
