LiveIntent and OpenX Partner to Bring the nonID Addressable Media Solution to Marketers and Publishers

Partnership allows buyers and publishers to integrate and test a cookie-less authentication solution

New York and Los Angeles – September 9, 2021: LiveIntent, the people-based marketing platform powered by the email address, today announced an expansion of the company’s partnership with OpenX. LiveIntent will officially begin delivering its Authenticated Bridge framework and nonID identifier into the OpenX bidstream. The integration empowers marketers to transact on a unique, stable, and privacy-safe identifier without dependence on third-party cookies. 

LiveIntent’s Authenticated Bridge solution, and the nonID, is an addressability framework for Publishers and Advertisers that is powered by email, and engineered with consent and security in mind. LiveIntent and OpenX are helping marketers seamlessly bridge all the insights nurtured and grown within email campaigns to the web and beyond, solving an elusive challenge: audience resolution and addressability powered by a bridge connecting Advertiser and Publisher first-party data.

Publishers simply need to enable the LiveIntent user ID sub-module in their OpenX Prebid Adapter in order to accept demand made possible by the Authenticated Bridge across their web properties. 

For marketers that have built audiences based on nonIDs, these users can be easily targeted and reached via an OpenX Deal ID across more than 800 million hashed emails and nonIDs that have been matched to OpenX Supply. Even publishers who haven’t yet implemented Authenticated Bridge can participate and accept this demand.

Additionally, the expanded LiveIntent and OpenX partnership will open up the opportunities for buyers to access LiveIntent’s aggregated newsletter audiences. Centered around different verticals or audience segments, these audiences are matched to the OpenAudience graph, meaning buyers can easily target consumers in these groups through a standard programmatic campaign run through OpenX. 

“While the removal of cookies from Chrome has been delayed, we are still focused on investing in a cookieless future,” said Brian Chisholm, SVP, Strategic Partnerships, OpenX. “Our partners and clients are looking for OpenX to help them prepare for a cookieless ecosystem, and it’s clear that email is going to be one of the key pieces of currency in digital advertising going forward. Integrating solutions like the nonID is a great way for us to help publishers and marketers start to leverage their first party data, and it’s clear that this meets a real need in market.”  

LiveIntent’s first-party identity solution is powered by its Identity Graph, which is built around a set of licensed people-based data that is authenticated and refreshed daily through active engagements with email newsletters and online media. 

The nonID is tied to an active, hashed email in the LiveIntent graph and offers a way to predict the primary email address to be associated with a device or browser, and all insights are tied directly to validated and active emails. 

“The industry has watched repeatedly as proprietary solutions that claimed to be a common currency for Publishers and Advertisers were rolled out,” said LiveIntent Founder and CEO Matt Keiser. “For Publishers and Brands, the days of accepting a closed solution are over. Prebid is open, and our nonID is a way to connect to the ecosystem on a customer’s terms. This framework works with established vendors’  proprietary IDs but is also open to any Publisher or Brand that has their own email data. LiveIntent and OpenX believe in the power of open source technology and have built solutions designed for easy integration and adoption, all while adhering to data compliance.”
