DMD AIM Reader for HCP Targeted ads

IQVIA’s DMD AIM Reader is running in Tap Native ad units and Tap Native has an umbrella agreement with DMD which covers use across all Tap Native Publishers. DMD is a 3rd party and has their own privacy policy here. Essentially DMD has a network of 3rd party partner websites where healthcare professionals log in. When those HCPs login, the publisher sends DMD a signal which includes the HCP’s NPI number. DMD cookies those HCPs at that moment so they can be detected later. When Each time Tap Native’s unit loads it is calling DMDs AIM reader which send Tap Native a real time signal if the user is a known HCP. That signal includes an NPI number. Tap then takes the NPI number and searched its inventory for appropriate HCPs ads and serves the ads.
