Clear Channel Outdoor Partners with Aqfer for First-Party Data Collaboration for Out-of-Home

Clear Channel Outdoor (CCO), a leading out-of-home (OOH) media company, has chosen Aqfer to enhance secure first-party data for out-of-home activation. These capabilities are facilitated by Data Clean Rooms (DCR). Thanks to Aqfer and its products, CCO can securely leverage a brand’s first-party data for OOH campaign planning, measurement, and optimization.

Developing Data Clean Room Technology for Clear Channel Outdoor

As advertisers seek to adhere to privacy demands, Data Clean Rooms have gained in popularity over the last few years. DCRs allow marketing service providers to collaborate with partners in  a secure environment.

By adding Aqfer capabilities to its RADAR platform, CCO has developed a truly interoperable DCR framework. Brands and their agency partners can now collaborate with CCO on audience targeting and campaign amplification.  CCO’s DCR framework provides improved audience behavior analysis, regardless of where the underlying data is stored. This means brands will not have to be locked into a singular provider’s ecosystem to enjoy the benefits of RADAR. It also means they can deliver a secure way for brands to unlock insights from sensitive data without sacrificing security, privacy, or performance. 

“Fostering interopable secure data collaboration among brands, media companies, and their service providers while protecting consumer privacy is in Aqfer’s DNA,” says Marc Sabatini, Chief Strategy Officer at Aqfer. “Facilitating DCRs is a natural evolution of our technology that Clear Channel Outdoor utilizes in the partnership with Aqfer for their RADAR suite of solutions.”
