Comical. If it was innocent, then why terminate the agreement with Nielsen? Criteo does SpinCars retargeting NOT Nielsen so their explanation doesn't ring true. Criteo captures all the info they require natively with their pixel. For clarity why doesn't SpinCars provide a copy of their agreement with Nielsen? Why wouldn't they address our client's privacy concerns raised in the email provided in this thread? Why not sign off on our clients privacy agreement when asked? It's all bullshit..SpinCars explanation is bullshit..

Coincidentally "Bullshit" is the name of my upcoming presentation at Digital Dealer. SpinCars is lying, but their lying is just the tip of the iceberg.

I'm reading this part of that email:

SpinCar Representative said:
….we’ve terminated our relationship with Nielsen altogether. We’ve also purged our entire codebase of the Nielsen tag.
as a cover up. It is hard to believe one is innocent when everything gets "purged." Elections have been lost on actions like this.

We will be talking through everything going on in this thread Friday. @Mike Phillips will join as a litmus test to what's being said. I don't think he's as deep into this rabbit hole as the rest of us.

If SpinCar wants to do an episode, to explain their perspective, the invitation has now been extended.

If you missed the RefreshFriday we hosted @Jeffrey Tognetti on, I have finally gotten chunks of it edited down into smaller bytes. Here's one that fits this thread quite well.
