Throtle Joins Industry-Wide Unified ID 2.0 Initiative 

March 15, 2021 – Red Bank, NJ – Throtle, a leading identity and data onboarding company, announced it is successfully integrated as an identity provider for Unified ID 2.0, an open-source ID framework designed to improve relevant advertising without relying on third-party cookies. The ID has been built by The Trade Desk along with other companies across the digital advertising industry.

The Unified ID 2.0 open-source ID framework is an upgrade and an alternative designed to maintain targeted advertising, while decreasing reliance on the third-party cookie. Built from hashed and encrypted email addresses, Unified ID 2.0 will remain open and ubiquitous while introducing significant upgrades to consumer privacy and transparency.

By leveraging Unified ID 2.0, advertisers working with Throtle will gain access to addressable inventory across all channels and devices, all without cookies. This provides a more holistic view of a customer and the ability to leverage audience data more efficiently to drive better campaign performance.

“Being a part of the Unified ID 2.0 solution is another step towards improving individual recognition and adopting a cookieless ID imperative,” said Paul Chachko, CEO, Throtle. “Throtle is committed to creating a better standard for identity and ensuring data marketing capabilities in a post-cookie world, while protecting consumer privacy and transparency.”

“As more industry partners like Throtle become interoperable with and support Unified ID 2.0, it’s exciting to see the industry come together to build a better solution that replaces third-party cookies,” said Bill Michels, General Manager, Product Management, The Trade Desk. “It’s becoming increasingly important to address the need for an alternative to identity that really is an upgrade for everyone from consumers to advertisers and publishers.”
