It is matched against information – such as advertising interest segments and histories of ads shown in the browser or device – provided by Clients or other third parties and stored on the platform. This information is used by Ve Clients to select advertisements for delivery by the platform, and to measure the performance of, and attribute payment for, those advertisements. In addition, to enable Ve Clients to use data (which may include personal data) they collect outside the platform or acquired from other third parties, this cookie is sometimes matched to (or “synched” with) Clients’ or other third parties’ cookies that contain such data. It is also used for opting out of behavioural adverts where a user wishes to do that.Follow this link for more information: https://www.thetradedesk.com/general/privacy
