We understand clearly that as marketers you want to keep your brand safe

“Brand safety can be defined as practices and tools to ensure that audio ads will not appear adjacent
or in a context that can damage an advertisers’ brand. People may also consider the larger realm
of reputational, financial and legal risk associated issues such as ad fraud and invalid traffic, fake news,
user-generated environment outrage, divisive content and clickbait on social media.”
