Criteo Delving Into Privacy Sandbox with New Services Layer

Revolutionizing the Ad Tech Landscape: Criteo’s Solution to Google’s Cookie Alternatives

Ad tech vendors facing the daunting task of meeting Google’s rigorous tech and financial requirements for cookie alternatives can now breathe easier, thanks to Criteo’s innovative approach.

While the exact details are still in flux, it appears increasingly likely that companies will soon have access to Criteo’s technology, sparing them the time and expense of developing their own solutions.

Collaboration with Google

Todd Parsons, Criteo’s chief product officer, revealed that the company is actively engaged with Google to address this pressing issue. Parsons emphasized the importance of providing a services layer for a wide range of supply-side and demand-side platforms, building on the legacy of Bidswitch.

The acquisition of IPONWEB, Bidswitch’s parent company, by Criteo positions the company as a key player in the ad tech ecosystem. Parsons’ vision aligns with enabling smaller partners who lack the resources to navigate the cookieless future independently.

Supporting the Industry Transition

According to Greg MacDonald from Chelsea Strategies, Criteo’s involvement in the Privacy Sandbox signifies a return to its roots in providing vital ad tech infrastructure for the open web. By leveraging IPONWEB’s expertise, Criteo aims to develop solutions that will facilitate the industry’s shift towards a cookieless environment.

The financial burden of developing and maintaining technologies compatible with Google’s Privacy Sandbox is substantial, with costs estimated at around $7 million. For many companies, the prospect of shouldering these expenses alone is daunting, making Criteo’s services all the more appealing.

Industry Response

Even established ad tech vendors, accustomed to the high costs associated with the Privacy Sandbox, have found the transition challenging. The uncertainty surrounding the timeline and success rate of such endeavors makes allocating resources a complex decision.

As one senior ad tech executive admitted, diverting funds from core operations to tackle the Privacy Sandbox presents a significant opportunity cost. Criteo’s solution offers a promising alternative for companies looking to navigate this evolving landscape without bearing the full financial burden.
