In environments that disallow third party cookies such as Firefox and Safari, eCPMs increased more than 30% when first party identifiers were utilizedNEW YORK, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Magnite (Nasdaq: MGNI), the largest independent sell-side advertising platform, today announced it has been working with Adform, the only independent global ad management platform covering all aspects of the digital campaign lifecycle, to scale first party identifiers in privacy-safe ways. With the pending elimination of third-party cookies, the industry must establish future-proof identity solutions for publishers and buyers. As part of their efforts, Magnite and Adform measured monetization lift based on first-party identifiers, including environments that currently disallow third party cookies such as Firefox and Safari. Initial results from Q1 2021 showed significant lift, with overall eCPMs increasing more than 30%, compared with ad requests which did not contain first-party identifiers. A similar study also showed click-through-rates on Safari impressions doubled, showing an increase in performance for buyers. These encouraging results signal to publishers and buyers that first-party identifiers are a way forward as usage of third-party cookies is phased out. Buyers, in the absence of a third-party cookie, can and will use first-party identifiers for bidding decisions, which will accelerate the deployment of these first-party solutions. Publisher first-party data linked to these identifiers form a key part of the quest to reinvent the internet’s identity and audience targeting structure. First-party data helps deliver a better user experience and with interest-based data, ads become more relevant and provide inherent value. Industry initiatives that are actively testing first-party data include Prebid.org’s SharedID which is open source and free for publishers to use. “We are not surprised at all that we are seeing lift in publisher revenue and buyer outcomes when an ID is present,” said Tom Kershaw, Chief Technology Officer at Magnite. “We have known this for a long time — which is why standardized community identifiers controlled by publishers are such an important part of our strategy. What is most encouraging, however, is how large the lift is in our trials with Adform and how that might motivate publishers to leverage identifiers like SharedID to improve performance.” “At Adform, we have long been vocal in stating that we believe the real solution to third-party cookie deprecation lies in first-party IDs,” said Jakob Bak, co-founder at Adform. “We see really impressive improvements with publishers that pass first-party IDs and even more when they link first-party data. The impact is naturally by far most notable on Safari where cookie IDs are not available. The Adform Safari spend on publishers passing such IDs has approximately doubled in recent months. It is promising for what awaits when Chrome cookies are deprecated as well, but for now everyone is excited about Safari improvements.” “We are eager to support and adopt identity solutions that are scalable across the industry, privacy-conscious, and effective,” said Terry Hornsby, Group Digital Director of Reach. “We are pleased to see Magnite and Adform's findings that demonstrate the effectiveness of first-party identifiers for publishers as well as the power of first-party data for both publishers and advertisers. We look forward to working with industry peers across the ecosystem to standardize and improve upon first-party ID solutions."

The United States stands ready to facilitate maritime border talks between Lebanon and Israel that will have benefits for the crisis-hit Lebanese economy, a U.S. envoy said on Thursday. On a visit to Beirut, Under Secretary of State David Hale blamed Lebanese leaders for failing to end a deadlock in cabinet talks to tackle the collapse, which has crashed the currency. Hale accused Hezbollah and Iran of undermining the state after meeting on Thursday with Lebanese President Michel Aoun, a political ally of the group whose son-in-law became a target of U.S. sanctions.

PARIS — Two years after a fire tore through Paris’ most famous cathedral and shocked the world, French President Emmanuel Macron is visiting the building site that Notre Dame has become Thursday to show that French heritage has not been forgotten despite the coronavirus. Flanked by ministers, architects and the retired French army general who is overseeing the restoration of the 12th century monument, Macron plans to inspect the progress of the ambitious rebuilding project to give the pandemic-weary French public some hope that a completion date will arrive one day, if not in the near future. Macron promised the cathedral would be rebuilt by 2024, yet officials acknowledge the work won’t be fully completed by then. They cite factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic for having slowed down the pace. The blaze also distributed vast amounts of toxic lead onto Notre Dame and the surrounding area, complicating the clean-up work that came before restoration efforts could even begin. “The 2024 deadline will be met,” French newspaper Le Parisien quoted the French leader as saying in an article published Thursday morning. “The five years will be met. What is important to me, really, is that the planning of the work can be respected, with all respect to architects and craft professionals.” Cranes and scaffolding from the massive project scar the French capital's skyline, and the rebuilding work could take decades. Officials said earlier this month that the burned-out cathedral and its esplanade could remain under construction for another 15 or 20 years. But they pledge Notre Dame will be at least be open for prayer and a “return to worship” in time for the 2024 Summer Olympics, which Paris is hosting. “The objective...is to return Notre Dame to worshippers and to visits in 2024. That means that in 2024, Mass will be able to be organized in the cathedral,” Jeremie Patrier-Leitus, a spokesperson for the restoration, told The Associated Press. Patrier-Leitus wants the world to know that “Notre Dame is holding up. It is still there. We are all gathered and mobilized to restore the cathedral and give this jewel of French Gothic architecture back to the world.” It remains to be seen if the cathedral will be in shape by then to welcome the some 20 million tourists it received each year before the fire. Since 2019, religious ceremonies have taken place at Notre Dame’s temporary liturgical base at the nearby church of Saint-Germain l’Auxerrois. The church lacks the size and wow-factor that drew the faithful to the cathedral for nearly 900 years. The Elysee presidential palace said Macron’s visit "will be an opportunity for the head of state to thank again all those who helped save the cathedral from the flames” and after. That includes the carpenters, scaffolders, rope access technicians, crane operators, organ builders, master glassmakers, painting and sculpture restorers, stonemasons, archaeologists, researchers and donors who helped keep the restoration work going despite the difficulties posed by the current health crisis. Two years is a blink of an eye in a restoration timeline. The Notre Dame project still in the initial consolidation phase. The actual restoration phase is expected to start next winter. But the overwhelming feeling among those who love Notre Dame is relief that the project so far has been a success. “I can say today that the cathedral is saved. It is well secured ,and we can now do the huge work of reconstruction that is not going to destabilize the whole building,” Notre Dame's rector, Patrick Chauvet, told the AP. The consolidation phase costing 165 million euros ($197 million) was vital: 40,000 metal tubes from scaffolding that was in place at the time of the fire melted during the blaze and had to be patiently cut off the roof. The vaults inside the cathedral also had to be stabilized. In a sign of the work to come, though, 1,000 oak trees were felled in some 200 French forests this spring to make the frame for the cathedral’s transept and spire — destined to be admired on the Paris skyline for potentially hundreds of years The drama of the eventful night of April 15, 2019, may well be 24 months in the past, but for Parisian witnesses it still feels very near. Frederico Benani, who witnessed and filmed the burning cathedral, was tearful as he recounted the experience. “I was here with my wife having tea. I saw a little black flame, and I never thought it was Notre Dame that was burning, and it was shocking for me to see all of those flames," Benani said. "It was horrible. It was sad. It breaks my heart.” ___ Adamson reported from Leeds, England Thomas Adamson And Jeffrey Schaeffer, The Associated Press
