Our Story

Our story began about 3 years ago when Sean one of our founders, came up with a vision for a more open, transparent, accessible and affordable programmatic solution for the market. The team then all met when we were Google contractors together, managing the UK, Irish, Israeli and South African business. After refining our idea for the programmatic platform we felt there was a better way still for digital marketing to be even more open, more transparent about how your personal data is used and how to put back in control.


OUR MISSION

1
Choice

The founding principle of what we do is choice. Choice in what you share. Choice in what you don't. Choice in the ads you see

2
Fair

Programmatic advertising has not been fair for many years, with layers on non transparent pricing, restricted access and limited knowledge. We plan to change that, with open access for all agencies and advertisers, along with fair reward to the publishers.

3
Power

Our platform will be powerful, it will enable advertisers to serve across computers, mobiles, TV, games consoles amongst others in the future.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Control Of Your Personal Data Is Your Human Right

Firstly we love digital marketing, you would hope we would say that, but genuinely we do. Digital Ads allow us to enjoy a huge array of sites, social media, tools like email & spreadsheets and entertainment online for FREE all funded by advertising

However, we have all seen this year that sometimes internet companies do not do the right thing with your data. Our solution uses hashed data on the blockchain meaning that a breach of trust like we have seen at Facebook and Emma's Diary this year cannot happen with us.
