Jet-Stream, the European streaming service provider, won the prestigious Dutch Privacy Award

Contextual Video Advertising

 “Jet-Stream is a streaming service that has succeeded in making the protection of viewers’ privacy a revenue model. The software they have developed is innovative and unique because it does not send advertisers personal data from these viewers, but only anonymized data and data about context of the stream watched. Because there is no need to ask for permission, and the AI they have developed does make it possible to truly target advertising, this “contextualized advertising” ends up generating even more ad revenue than the usual personalized ads based on individual profiles of viewers.”

Jet-Stream’s operations are steeped in being privacy-conscious. For example, they have set up their own cloud that is 100% Dutch, employ only EU employees, and the company is entirely Dutch-owned. Furthermore, they use no cookies and no trackers in their software. Moreover, the video player they developed themselves does not share any generated data with their customers. The jury therefore declares Jet-Stream the winner of the Dutch Privacy Award 2024 in the Technology category.”

Jet-Stream founder Stef van der Ziel: “We are delighted to have won the Privacy Award 2024. To us it is a confirmation that an expert jury rewards our investments and commitment to a more secure and private internet. The internet was built on the promise to share ideas and creativity, not your data.”
