Leading market research technology company approved as vendor by the European association for the digital marketing and advertising ecosystem

Innovation and advanced technology are at the heart of everything we do at Cint, making the IAB Europe a great collaboration for us.”
— Richard Thornton, Chief Commercial Officer, Cint
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, March 18, 2020 / -- Cint, the technology backbone of the world's most successful insights companies, today announced its approved status as the latest vendor to join IAB Europe’s Transparency and Consent framework (the Framework). Cint has the world’s largest sample exchange platform for the market research industry and is committed to providing the most scalable technology to help marketers, advertisers and researchers digitally transform the way they do business.

"Innovation and advanced technology are at the heart of everything we do at Cint, making the IAB Europe a great collaboration for us," said Richard Thornton, Chief Commercial Officer of Cint. "We value the privacy of the 100+ million people in our network, and our approval as a vendor for the Framework means that our thoughtful and transparent approach to consumer data is working."  

The Framework, which was launched in April 2018, is designed to help all parties in the digital advertising chain ensure that they comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and ePrivacy Directive when processing personal data or accessing and/or storing information on a user’s device, such as cookies, advertising identifiers, device identifiers and other tracking technologies.

The Framework was developed by IAB Europe in collaboration with organisations and professionals in the digital advertising industry. It provides transparency to consumers about how, and by whom, their personal data is processed. It also enables users to express choices. Moreover, the TCF enables vendors engaged in programmatic advertising to know ahead of time whether their own and/or their partners’ transparency and consent status allows them to lawfully process personal data for online advertising and related purposes. 

Through the Framework, publishers can continue funding themselves through relevant online advertising, and brands can continue to reach their audiences. All the while and most importantly, consumer privacy is protected.

The added registration of Cint to the Framework, further bolsters IAB Europe’s mission to raise the standard and trust in digital advertising across Europe.
