Google Proposes Cookie-Free Approach to Programmatic Ad Targeting
Google has posted its latest proposal for privacy-safe programmatic ad targeting, called DOVEKEY, for discussion on GitHub. To preserve privacy, bids are made against anonymous interest group IDs rather than specific individuals. Work is shared between the browser and a trusted third-party server so there’s no need to trust Google to run the auctions itself. See the GitHub article and this DigiDay piece for details.
