On November 16th 2022, the Digital Services Act (the “DSA”) became effective. It sets a new standard for the transparency and accountability of online platforms in order to equally protect all users within the European Union (EU) both in terms of safety from illegal goods, content, or services, and in terms of their fundamental rights online.
Per Article 24(2) of the DSA, online platform providers must disclose on a recurring basis and at least every six months ‘information on the average monthly active recipients of the service in the Union, calculated as an average over the period of the past six months” on a publicly available section of their online interface. This is to determine whether a platform is considered a ‘very large online platform’ (VLOP), meaning it has an average of at least 45 million active users per month in the EU. Due to the significant impact they have on the distribution of content throughout the EU, VLOPs are governed by increased regulation under the DSA.
The concept of active recipient is a new concept defined by the DSA. A ‘recipient of the service’ means any person who uses an intermediary service, including advertisers and traders, as well as regular users (Article 3(b) DSA). An ‘active recipient of an online platform’ is someone who has “engaged with an online platform by either requesting it to host information or being exposed to information hosted by the online platform and disseminated through its online interface’ (Article 3(p) DSA).
Recital 77 of the DSA provides further guidance on the definition of active recipient, by, for example, excluding visits from automated users such as bots or scrapers, and clarifying that only unique recipients of the service should be counted. However, the definition is still open, and no specific methodology has yet been provided by the European Commission for calculating active recipients under the DSA.
We have determined the average number of monthly active recipients of our services in the EU for the time period August to December 2022. Our findings indicate that the average number of monthly active recipients of our platform in the European Union is below 45 million users.
We will regularly review our statistics and publish updated information later in 2023.
