Global Brands, Leading European Publishers and Retail Partners Turn to European Unified ID to Maintain Relevant Advertising

Bacardi, Kimberly-Clark, Aller Media, Future,|highfivve, OneFootball, Prisma Media, and Tesco Media and Insights Platform Engage New, Privacy-Conscious Identity Framework Aimed at Giving European Consumers Better Data Controls

LONDON – June 15, 2023 – European Unified ID (EUID), a new identity solution specifically developed for the European market, is gaining support across Europe, including from global brands, leading European publishers and retail partners. EUID is a European counterpart to Unified ID 2.0 (UID2), a new approach to identity that has gained industry-wide adoption. Initial engagement with EUID from brands and publishers includes Bacardi, Kimberly-Clark, Aller Media, Future,|highfivve, OneFootball, Prisma Media, and Tesco Media and Insights Platform, powered by dunnhumby.

With established regulations on consumer data across Europe, brands and publishers have explored ways to deliver better advertising experiences to consumers, while respecting consumer privacy and data standards. EUID aims to address Europe’s data privacy regulations, while giving European consumers control of their data through privacy notices and opt-outs.

“There is an important discussion that’s happening around the world about how to preserve the value exchange of relevant advertising, while respecting consumer privacy. And nowhere is this more evident than across Europe,” said Samantha Jacobson, Chief Strategy Officer, The Trade Desk. “Advertisers and publishers within Europe must clear a high bar for data privacy. As a European specific solution, EUID is anchored in the privacy conditions that are specific to the region. Our partnerships with advertisers, publishers and industry organizations have enabled us to build an identity framework that helps brands reach European consumers with relevant advertising, while giving them the ability to control their data.”

Based on authenticated data, EUID is open-sourced and interoperable with other authenticated identity solutions across the advertising ecosystem. This interoperability enables advertisers to build holistic advertising campaigns that reach consumers across the fastest-growing digital channels on the open internet, where third-party cookies are not present such as connected TV, mobile apps, and audio streaming.

Select advertiser and publisher comments on EUID:

“Bacardi supports new solutions like EUID that are developed to help improve the consumer advertising experience and raise the bar on privacy,” said Lucy King, Global Media Director, Bacardi.

With EUID, Kimberley-Clark can maximise its first-party data to serve a richer, unified and privacy-centric customer experience across channels," said Scott Bodie, UK Digital Lead, Kimberly-Clark.
