Prisma Media joins Zeotap’s ID+ Universal ID initiative to solve for a cookieless future

Paris, France: March 10, 2020 – Prisma Media, the leader in French magazine press and online video, and second in digital audiences, has announced a new partnership with ID+, the Universal ID initiative launched by Zeotap. The partnership will enable Prisma Media to continue serving addressable campaigns at scale to brand advertisers, even after the third party cookie is deprecated. 

The ID+ initiative, launched in 2020 and with over 25 partners, aims to empower the marketing ecosystem to overcome challenges posed by the demise of identifiers, as well as a fast-changing regulatory landscape. For publishers, this means the ability to continue to identify their users, while eliminating reliance on platform or device-level identifiers such as cookies. For brands, it allows them to continue reaching addressable users in an omnichannel way, through Zeotap’s Customer Intelligence Platform. Zeotap’s new partnership with Prisma Media furthers the ID+ initiative’s market presence in France. 

We’re thrilled to welcome Prisma Media as our newest ID+ partner,” said Matt Barash, SVP Global Publishing & Platform Partnerships at Zeotap. “The digital economy is shifting, and both publishers and advertisers are taking control of how they will transact by leveraging future-proofing solutions like ID+.”

Becoming part of the ID+ ecosystem is as easy as integrating a website script today. ID+ works by placing an ID+ cookie (in a first-party context) unique to a browser, website, and device on users visiting a publisher’s site. Based on explicit consent, logged in users and their emails form the backbone of ID+, as these permanent identifiers will continue to be the gold standard with the rise of user logins and paywalls. Finally, existing Zeotap script partners can easily update their configuration settings to ensure ID+ readiness for a post-third-party cookie world.

David Folgueira, Executive Director PMS AdTech at Prisma Media said: “With the upcoming changes to cookies, the concept of identification and publishers’ proprietary data will become key to the digital ecosystem. Prisma Media already has a large pool of connected users within its own system, Prisma Media Connect. However, we’ve always been open to those partners in identification and data who allow us to grow this audience. We’re delighted to collaborate with Zeotap on this important subject at the start of this important year.”
