What is Brand Safety?

We define brand safety as a combination of transparency, measurement, and ultimately safety. We are transparent partners, providing clear insights on measurement and reporting. With NOM, you know exactly where your ads are running and how they got there.
Brand Safety Categories

Safe, Relevant, Appropriate

Less likely to recommend brand

Less willing to associate with brand

Advertisers now realize that it only takes one bad placement to damage your brand's reputation.
