New Comscore Research Examines the Future of Privacy-Safe Measurement
"The privacy landscape is rapidly evolving, and new regulations have placed a greater emphasis on consumer data privacy rights than ever before," said
Highlights from the report
- With the shift toward privacy-driven architecture, data sharing becomes more specialized through first-party relationships and appropriate consent mechanisms. Today, most companies that collect digital event data do so in one of two ways: either through tagging or panel-based measurement. With
Comscore'spanels, targeting is not allowed based on privacy limits and, because of the opt-in nature of panel measurement, panels are expected to withstand expected privacy ecosystem changes. As such, large digital panels like Comscore'sbecome increasingly important as a source of truth to adjust cookie-based measurement accurately.
- Another part of
Comscore'songoing research into methods for measuring consumer behavior in a privacy-focused manner is the Atomic ID™. The concept of an Atomic ID is designed by Comscorefor a world where it is no longer possible to link web traffic together with the cookie as the common identifier. When built, the Atomic ID can provide privacy-driven representative behavioral profiles that can be applied across platforms and data types, while at the same time eliminating dependence on cookies and other tag IDs.
- With the cookie-based approach to measurement on its way out, advertisers need to ensure that their shared first-party data does not include personally identifiable information while at the same retaining the value of their first-party data as proprietary information. This is where concepts like "data clean rooms" come into play, which is a safe space that aggregates multiple first-party datasets and reports to each contributor only information on how that contributor's data interacts with that of other parties.
Comscorerecently announced a partnership with LiveRamp to develop innovative privacy-focused services, which partnership names Comscoreas the preferred data provider for LiveRamp's Safe Haven offering.
