Safe, suitable, and responsible media solutions

Aligned to online safety standards set by industry groups, such as the Global Alliance for Responsible Media (GARM), our safety categories scan potentially harmful and risky content in more than 12 categories, including firearms, crime, drugs, obscenity, death, and hate speech.

Custom safety segments are built specific to your brand with transparent customization and fast deployment into major DSPs.


Prebid invalid traffic (IVT) and viewability

Combine brand safety protection with Oracle Advertising’s prebid invalid traffic (IVT) and viewability solution for greater control and precision over your digital campaign environments. Oracle’s prebid verification of safety, IVT, and viewability solution protects your digital investments and helps ensure that your ads are served according to your standards.

Prebid viewability

Filter content based on viewability parameters set forth by the Media Ratings Council (MRC), giving you unprecedented precision and control over where your ads are seen.

Prebid IVT

Detect and filter out all forms of invalid traffic, protecting your ad spend and ensuring your campaigns do not include impressions generated by bots or any form of nonhuman traffic.


The future of privacy-friendly targeting

Oracle Advertising Content Affinity Targeting is a privacy-friendly targeting solution that identifies and targets the online content with which your ideal audience has the strongest affinity. The content affinity engine analyzes what content a given audience views over time to find what they are most likely to engage with and what they tend to avoid. Deep learning models find additional content that most closely matches the seed content for your target audience. Find your target customer across all types of content that they consume online—without audience IDs—in these powerful content affinity segments.

Demographic segments

Solve the challenge of reaching specific demographic target audiences when using contextual-based advertising. Traditionally, these audiences are hard to reach via contextual targeting. Content Affinity Targeting reaches various demographic cohorts, such as age, gender, and income, across a broad array of content that those individuals are more likely to consume.

Lifestyle segments

Complement your traditional contextual targeting approach geared toward specific lifestyle content with audience-informed targeting segments. Our data-backed solution enables you to scale campaigns against relevant lifestyles—no matter what type of content they are viewing at the time.

Retail segments

Extend the reach of your purchase-based audiences through audience-backed content affinity segments or use it as a replacement strategy where a cookieless approach may be more suitable.
