When we use the word "content," we mean audio, video, ad campaigns and any other static or dynamic media users might encounter or engage with. The Nielsen proprietary measurement software embedded in the content uses tags (including cookies, pixel tags, and our software contained in mobile applications) or watermarks to gather information to help understand what content users are exposed to and interact with, what advertising campaigns are effective, and the aggregated demographic composition of a website's or application's visitors or viewers of digital content.” Source
