Richard Kramer, Founder of Arete Research and Brendan Eich, CEO of Brave Software, discuss the challenges with the current “data donation agreement” that Big Tech has created related to user information and identity, along with the brand safety concerns advertisers are now facing. 


We also discuss:

  • Online identity and its impact on advertising technology.
  • Brand safety considerations that advertisers must pay attention to.
  • Brave’s unique privacy-by-default principles and what that means for users.
