LONDON and SAN FRANCISCO, August 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
RadiumOne, a RhythmOne Company, today announces that it has received the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA) Trust Seal from independent Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC). To obtain the Trust Seal, RadiumOne demonstrated that its policies, practices and processes - including segmentation, opt-outs and privacy policies - were compliant with industry standards for the collection and use of Online Behavioral Advertising (OBA) user data in accordance with the EU Self-Regulatory Program for OBA. The Seal is a valuable measure for brands, agencies and publishers to use as they evaluate their data partners. Additionally, consumers have transparency into what data is collected and control via an open process to opt out.
As a trusted verification provider, ABC is owned and developed jointly by media owners, advertisers and agencies to set industry-agreed standards for media brand measurement across print, digital and events. Jan Pitt, Executive Director of Client Services at ABC, comments, "We are delighted to issue the EDAA Trust Seal to RadiumOne, having provided them with a robust and independent certification service. Through this certification, RadiumOne has demonstrated both their expertise and commitment to working to industry agreed standards. Independent certification helps to raise standards across the industry and will provide RadiumOne clients greater confidence in their systems and processes."
Seeking out this certification is a clear example of RadiumOne's dedication to working internally and with external standard-setting partners to create trust in the marketplace and remain at the forefront of respecting user privacy. In addition to the EDAA Trust Seal, RadiumOne has certifications from other agencies that cover brand safety, ad fraud, data protection and user privacy.
"This certification highlights our company's commitment to leading the way in the EU market to defend user privacy and fair usage of OBA," said Craig Tuck, Managing Director at RadiumOne, "We are constantly assessing privacy issues and concerns in the ad tech industry and are an active participant in adhering to industry standards set by organizations such as the EDAA. Delivering high-quality advertising at scale via a complete end-to-end technology stack - in a safe and respectful environment - is critical to our success and to driving real business outcomes for our clients."
