The Device Graph™

Creating a unified view of the consumer.

What it is

Digital media companies face many challenges, but none more fundamental than the fractured nature of today’s digital marketing and advertising ecosystems. Today’s technology platforms treat users as different people as they use different devices and switch between contexts within those devices. The patent-pending Tapad Device Graph allows you to understand, monetize and measure your audience across all of their internet connected devices. Learn more about what it can do for you in this video.

Today’s smart devices offer compelling opportunities to engage and empower people with targeted advertising. They also demand a wise approach to protecting a consumer’s privacy. At Tapad, we believe consumers deserve notice of behavioral ads, true transparency and the tools to take control of how their data is used online. Given this fundamental tenet for the way we do business, Tapad is playing a central role in the development and implementation of strict, industry-wide standards and protocols. We work hand-in-hand with Ghostery (formerly Evidon) and other industry leaders to provide clear notification and persistent opt-out (in compliance with the Digital Advertising Alliance program for Online Behavioral Advertising). Moreover, Tapad’s proprietary technological breakthroughs enable us to deliver targeted, cross-platform advertising without reliance on PII. Read more about our commitment to privacy »
