Experian Marketing Services Launches Audience Management Platform

Experian Marketing Services unveiled an audience-management platform that will change the way the advertising industry buys and measures media. The Audience Engine platform deterministically links and matches data across the marketing ecosystem in a unified, automated platform for targeting, execution and measurement of addressable advertising campaigns. It provides users with a single, agnostic platform to create, understand and activate their addressable advertising campaigns leveraging a combination of first-, second- and third-party data sources. For TV advertisers, this includes linear, addressable and over-the-top audiences, such as connected TV. While in beta over the last nine months, more than 70 brands have used Audience Engine to launch addressable TV campaigns. Brands across verticals including major automotive, travel, retail and consumer packaged goods have already seen success, with an average sales lift of 67%. Reach: Users of the Audience Engine platform can reach 85% of the entire U.S. population with addressable advertising campaigns. Advertisers can reach 100% of the household-level addressable TV operators in the United States through Audience Engine. People-based audiences, not cookies: Unlike a data management platform (DMP), Experian's audience management platform generates "people-based" audiences by deterministically connecting data from across the industry, including online and offline platforms. It does not rely on cookies. Experian has direct partnerships with over 20 of the country's media providers across TV, online, mobile, email and direct mail to enable deterministic matching and distribution across more than 8 billion variables. Media partners include Facebook, Yahoo, Viant, AOL, Cablevision, AT&T and Dish Network, among others. Users: Audience Engine is for users on both the buy and sell sides of advertising. End users include advertisers, agencies, media publishers and DMPs. Flexibility for distribution: Audience Engine offers users the flexibility to distribute audiences in perfect orchestration with demand side platforms (DSPs) and DMPs including Videology, Turn, MediaMath, x+1 and Lotame.

Keller Rohrback L.L.P. Files Class Action Lawsuit against Experian Information Solutions, Inc. on Behalf of Experian Customers

On October 26, 2015, Keller Rohrback L.L.P. filed a class action lawsuit against Experian alleging the credit reporting agency, which processes credit inquiries for potential creditors, including T-Mobile, missed numerous opportunities to prevent, detect, end, or limit the scope of the data breach, thus, allowing thieves to steal and globally publish customer’s PII entrusted with Experian to the life-long detriment of Plaintiff and similarly situated consumers. Keller Rohrback files class action complaint against Experian for the data breach that affected 15 million T-Mobile applicants. Hackers accessed an Experian computer server that housed personal information of over 15 million T-Mobile applicants who required a credit check for service or device financing during a two-year period from September 1, 2013 through September 16, 2015. Experian said this was an isolated incident of one server and one client's data. But, hackers took T-Mobile customer's names, addresses, Social Security numbers, birthdays and ID numbers, such as driver's license, military ID or passport numbers. These types of critically important information are used to commit fraud or identity theft. The Complaint was filed on behalf of Washington-based Martha Schroeder who has been a T-Mobile cellular telephone and data services customer since September 12, 2015. In order to receive cellular and data services from T-Mobile, Schroeder provided her full name, home address, home telephone number, credit and bank debit card numbers, Social Security number, and birthdate. Adding insult to injury, the free identity protection services Experian is offering victims of the Data Breach does not protect consumers from identity theft or identity fraud with regard to the unauthorized use of their stolen PII, the Complaint reads, Instead, the service monitors consumer's credit reports only providing alerts as to the unauthorized use of PII after the fact.

Arizona's Attorney General Announces $6 Million Settlement with Equifax Information Services LLC, Experian Information Solutions, Inc. and TransUnion LLC

Attorney General Mark Brnovich and the attorneys general of 30 other states announced a major settlement with the three large national credit reporting agencies- Equifax Information Services LLC, Experian Information Solutions Inc., and TransUnion LLC. An assurance of discontinuance was reached to settle concerns that the credit reporting agencies engaged in conduct that violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The settlement is the result of a multi-state investigation initiated in 2012 by a group of state attorneys general. The investigation, which Arizona was a part of, focused on consumer disputes about credit report errors, monitoring and disciplining data furnishers (businesses or creditors that provide credit reporting information to credit reporting agencies), accuracy in consumer credit reports, and the marketing of credit monitoring products to consumers who call the credit reporting agencies to dispute information on their credit report. Under the settlement, which is subject to court approval, the credit reporting agencies have agreed to pay the participating states a total of $6 million and to make a number of changes to their business practices that will benefit consumers. Arizona's portion of the money is $160,149.98.
