“Currently, consumers have no ability to know in advance if they are being targeted. Our survey demonstrated that people truly want this capability. At the same time, brands are under massive pressure to achieve performance goals. Perion’s SORT technology is designed to enable both.”

The responses are from 1000 participants ranging from age 18 to 70 across the United States, matched to the general population by gender and age. The survey conducted by Lucid identified how consumers feel when an advertisement is following them, and if they would favor a brand that visibly protects their privacy with a seal of protection on the advertisement. Based on the results, consumers prefer to have the ability to avoid advertisements that are tracking them and engage with those that do not.
