What is User Syncing?
BidTheatre provides user ID's to supply partners to have them provided back to BidTheatre when an impression is auctioned to be sold. This enables identifying the user and target based on the data attached to the user ID.
When is User Syncing done?
User synchronization is usually triggered both by the SSP and also by BidTheatre to ensure the largest possible user sync rate. User synchronization is triggered by default by BidTheatre on
Cookie Group scripts
Conversion Tracker scripts
by piggybacking image tags that call the user synchronization endpoints of BidTheatre supply partners.
User syncs are triggered if no user sync has been registered within the last 14 days.
