|30 September 2021||Brand Safety||(22 September release) DoubleVerify brand safety pre-bid products were updated to Brand Suitability Tiers, which allow advertisers to choose between three risk levels (low, medium, and high) for specific segments without avoiding all instances of a certain topic. Historically, segments did not include any tolerance levels.
To align with the new DoubleVerify segment structure, DSP migrated your existing brand safety segments to their new, recommended medium-level segment. You can optionally adjust the segment tier to low or high.
