About SnappSearch: 
SnappSearch is a ground-breaking, patented web display ad format that was developed by Inoventiv Canada Corp for user engagement, relevant content, ROI and personalization. SnappSearch is a disruptive technology because it allows users to interact more intimately with ads by providing real-time search functionality for inventory and brand inquiries without being interrupted and taken away from the webpage hosting the ad unit. The result is higher engagement, more relevant content and personal insight into each user with unprecedented measurement. 

For personalization, SnappSearch does not use or transmit any unique identifiers whatsoever, including random IDs, or temporary IDs. This is important and rare in online advertising. According to Dr. Johnny Ryan, Head of Ecosystem Pagefair Europe, "SnappSearch’s ability to operate without unique identifiers of any kind is an unusual asset for advertisers that wish to neutralize their risks under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). This appears to be a good example of privacy by design.” For more information, visit: www.snappsearch.com
