VDX.tv is pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Brand Safety Certified Seal of Compliance under the Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG) Brand Safety Certified Program. The launch of this initiative by TAG marks the ad industry’s largest and broadest global brand safety certification program.
Earning the TAG Seal of Compliance builds on previous years’ compliance with the JICWEBS Digital Trading Standards Group (DTSG) Good Practice Principles, but due to the recent merger of TAG and JICWEBS, the seal has changed.
This certification follows the successful outcome of an audit of VDX.tv’s brand safety and ad placement protection policies by industry-owned media auditor ABC. The audit itself involved rigorous scrutiny and required ample evidence be provided in a number of brand safety-related areas.
What does earning the TAG Brand Safety Certified Seal mean for VDX.tv?
It means that:
- We are proactively delivering on the need for more transparency in digital media.
- We are supporting cross-industry programmes by way of applying the TAG Brand Safety Certified Guidelines, underpinned by independent verification from ABC.
- Buyers and advertisers that trade with us can trade with confidence, knowing that we are committed to brand protection and reducing the risk of unsafe ad placements.
“VDX.tv is pleased to be independently verified for the new TAG Brand Safety Certified Seal, continuing the work under the former JICWEBS Good Practice Principles. We remain dedicated to protecting advertisers, consumers and partners by ensuring that our robust tools and processes deliver campaigns in brand safe environments everywhere.” – Oliver Hayward, Product Director at VDX.tv
