Special information for this ad format
Ad space (Sitebar)
Iq digital automatically sets the width and height of the ad space or the enclosing top iFrame element of the creation to the area of the available ad space next to the content and ensures positioning in the permanently visible area of the browser.
The following applies: The creative agency is responsible for the motif presentation within the ad frames with different sizes of the advertising space.
Please always note the following:
All elements of a campaign and the creative must be HTTPS-compatible (see SSL conformity (HTTPS)).
Calculation of file size and loading phases
The max. size of the specified ad component and its allocation to the loading phase in question (initial load/subload) refers to the value after the files (HTML, CSS, script, libraries, graphics and other assets) have been gzip-compressed (see File sizes and loading phases).
HTML, scripts and all components that form part of the ad presentation must remain in the ad iFrame tag of the marketer or the 3rd-party host and may not be positioned outside this tag. This means that no DOM insertion of ad components in the top window of the serving website is permitted.
If this ad is not a recognised instream or outstream ad, it is only possible to implement video content with processing as a 3rd-party redirect (if approved) in the host-initiated subload (max. 4 MB in the stationary Web and max 2 MB in the mobile Web); max. length 15 - 30 seconds, frame rate: 25 images per second (FPS). Due to the high bandwidth usage of video-content, videos on smartphones are served with broadband targeting. iq digital reserves its right to add broadband targeting on other platforms as well if it is necessary.
The ad server of the marketer can only correctly measure the clicks on an ad if a click-sensitive surface to forward the user to the client target site is implemented in the creative code and the insertion of ad server macros for the counting of clicks is possible. An external click command URL (3rd-party click tracking incl. target URL for forwarding to the client landing page) is also to be delivered as follows depending on how the ads are provided:
|In the case of delivery of physical IMAGE files||Delivery of 1 click command per ad motif; allocation incl. ad server macro as full-area click forwarding by iq digital ad server templating.|
|In the case of delivery of a physical HTML5 zip file||Delivery of 1 click command per ad motif or multi-click area – allocation incl. ad server macro in HTML5 creative code by creative agency - see OVK standard procedure for the transfer of click tag and forwarding - HTML5 Guideline|
|In the case of delivery of a 3rd-party redirect||See Click tracking – Delivery of 3rd-party resources|
The playout of further scripts/services for tracking/measuring other parameters than those required for reporting on campaign performance (e.g. impression, click counting and coordinated ad verification) is not permitted.
iq digital reserves the right to approve each ad motif on the basis of a case-by-case decision. Ads that do not comply with the specifications, result in excessive reactance (CPU load of average user devices) or impair use and general performance of the pages must be corrected by the agency delivering the ad or can be rejected. The technical specifications of iq digital are subject to change. For this reason, technical specifications apply to the respective advertising order in the version valid at the time the advertising order is concluded.
