Businesses have become better and better at nudging consumers online in their decision-making processes and purchasing behavior. They deploy all sorts of techniques to influence consumer behavior online. At what point does persuasion turn into deception? In these guidelines, the answer to that question is the main focus.

This will also be the standards that ACM will use in its oversight from now on.
