Horizon Media partners with Sourcepoint
Sourcepoint, the privacy compliance platform of record for the digital marketing ecosystem, has partnered with Horizon Media to provide their clients with access to Sourcepoint’s privacy measurement technology, Privacy Lens. Sourcepoint’s proprietary platform allows advertisers to ensure media quality by analyzing how media inventory suppliers comply with consumer privacy regulations like CCPA and GDPR.

Operating globally across a range of industries, Horizon Media needed to ensure that their clients’ budgets were being invested appropriately on websites that meet client standards for consumer privacy. By partnering with Sourcepoint to apply their Privacy Lens data to programmatic transactions, Horizon Media can continuously adapt to regional best practices dictated by legislation, and ensure the ongoing ethical use of consumer data. Platforms are embracing product solutions for privacy-safe targeting as well, as reflected in last month’s announcement of Sourcepoint’s integration with MediaMath.

Horizon Media plans to roll out Privacy Lens across the entirety of their programmatic practice as a unique method for managing and optimizing media. By setting data privacy parameters and evaluating inventory sources, Horizon Media can ensure its clients’ messages only appear in environments that are deemed privacy compliant, brand safe, and suitable. Since Horizon Media began working with Sourcepoint, they have applied Privacy Lens insights to their procurement optimization process, finding that:
  • 9% of websites did not have a link to a privacy policy present. This is a baseline requirement under all privacy regulations, including California’s current privacy law, CCPA.
  • 30% of websites did not have an opt-out link present on the main page. This is one of the main requirements of CCPA, as well as for other impending US state privacy laws.
Donald Williams, EVP and CDO of Horizon Media said: “While it’s vital that our own business practices protect consumer privacy, it’s of equal importance that we help restore credibility to the programmatic marketplace by reassuring our clients that their ad dollars are being invested in privacy-safe environments. As we look towards 2023, with the changes coming to Chrome, and a new host of regulatory requirements coming into force, technology solutions like Sourcepoint’s Privacy Lens remain the best means for businesses to future-proof their approach to privacy.”

Ben Barokas, co-founder and CEO of Sourcepoint, adds: “The programmatic ecosystem is undergoing a rapid and much-needed transformation. Data practices that may have gone unnoticed a year ago are now scrutinized closely."

Ben Barokas, co-founder and CEO of Sourcepoint, adds: “The programmatic ecosystem is undergoing a rapid and much-needed transformation. Data practices that may have gone unnoticed a year ago are now scrutinized closely. In such a dynamic industry, it’s challenging to have proper visibility into the privacy practices of other players. Privacy Lens seeks to bring greater transparency and align incentives for greater privacy compliance. Working with Horizon Media is another important step towards establishing data ethics infrastructure that will ultimately improve experiences for consumers.”

Good-Loop Launches Purpose-Powered CTV Ad Format That Rewards Viewers' Attention With Donations To Charity

Good-Loop | October 28, 2022

Purpose-led ad platform Good-Loop today launched a new CTV ad format that rewards viewers' attention and time with a free donation to charity. Advertisers can buy the new watch-to-donate format across various CTV channels using Good-Loop's purpose-powered ad wrapper. Once the ad has been played, it generates a free donation to a charity, funded by the brand. Formats include pre, mid and post-roll. The new CTV ad unit also includes a QR code, which viewers can scan to drive through to the Good-Loop's Impact Hub, where they can find out more details about the campaign and the charity partner. They can also see how much has been raised in real-time and understand the real world impact of the funding. Participating charities include the Eden Reforestation Project, Love The Oceans and Black Minds Matter. CTV viewership is booming. eMarketer forecasts there will be 109.3 million households with a CTV by the end of 2022, which equates to 83.6% of U.S. households, while 40% of adults watch videos using CTV devices every day (source: Leichtman Research Group). Good-Loop's new CTV format gives advertisers access to this rapidly growing, highly-engaged audience in a way that drives brand purpose and delivers significantly better ad performance and ROI. Good-Loop's purpose-powered ad formats - which drive brand engagement by converting people's attention to ads into funding for good causes around the world - on average drive a 33% higher engagement rate, 50% higher completion rate and 4.5X higher ad recall than the rest of the industry - as well as building significant brand love, trust and affinity. Ryan Cochrane, COO, Good-Loop, said: "CTV viewership is exploding right now. However, increased competition means brands are finding it increasingly hard to get noticed by this rapidly expanding global audience. TV ads don't normally reward viewers for their time and attention. Good-Loop's new CTV ad format does. It enables TV viewers to make a donation to a good cause simply by watching an ad. "For consumers, rather than passive viewers, it means their precious time and attention is truly rewarded and helps to fund a good cause. For brands it's a way to do good at scale, while also standing out among the ever-growing crowd of brands tussling for CTV viewers' well-earned attention."

For brands it's a way to do good at scale, while also standing out among the ever-growing crowd of brands tussling for CTV viewers' well-earned attention." The new watch-to-donate unit - bought on a Cost Per Completed View (CPCV) or CPM basis - is the latest ad format from Good-Loop that harnesses the value of consumer attention to do good at scale. Good-Loop, a Certified B Corporation, is on a mission to make the connection between brands and consumers more meaningful by delivering respectful ads that deliver real social impact, while also driving significant business and brand uplifts for advertisers. The advertiser receives more meaningful brand engagement, while the consumer gets to do good for free. The charity receives 50% of the ad revenue. The company has already raised £5M for charities around the world. To find out more about Good-Loop's new CTV format, click here.
