How Quadrant satisfies the highest standards for handling user data

From the onset, Quadrant’s corporate ethos has been predicated on the principle of transparency. As proponents of the laws and principles enshrined in data-privacy regulations, we ethically procure and process data to make sure we are operating within the boundaries established by these regulations. 

Early on, our Consent Management Platform (QCMP) was registered as an IAB TCF-compliant CMP – which made us a valuable partner for publishers who wanted to monetize their apps by supplying consented and anonymized user data.

For a long time, there were no checks and balances in place to prevent unauthorised access and misuse of this sensitive information. Therefore, there was a dire need for regulations that govern the conditions under which businesses are allowed to process sensitive consumer data.
