Corvidae Overview

What attribution model does Corvidae use?

We partnered with Edinburgh University to develop our unique attribution model.  This patented cookie-free approach uses a custom technique for each customer to understand how people really interact with your marketing and website, the decisions they make, and how those results in conversions and revenue for your business.

How much does Corvidae cost?

Our pricing is customised based on your business and your goals. For more information, check out our Pricing page or get in touch with our team.

Yes, we have a dedicated team of attribution experts on-hand to ensure you get the most out of Corvidae.

How long is the onboarding process?

All it takes is 3 steps to get started with Corvidae, and you’ll be on the road to accurate attribution in just 30 days. Find out how to get started with Corvidae.

Our Attribution Model

Why does Corvidae not use Last-Click?

Last-click is heavily biased towards direct visits. Last non-direct click ignores all the preceding channels and first click rewards only the first touchpoint, meaning marketers can never understand the true value of their marketing mix. It is impossible for them to understand the impact each channel has on total revenue and the customer journey.  

What’s the benefit of Corvidae’s attribution model over Markov or Shapley?

Corvidae attributes revenue to the most granular level possible – the individual visit or impression, and then allows aggregation up to insightful segments. 

Shapley and Markov models cannot handle such a large amount of data points in their operation and the underlying mathematics fail. Read more about this in our blog.

Cookieless Attribution

Why are third-party cookies broken?

Cookies do a poor job of stitching together cross-channel, cross-device user journeys. In fact, we found that as much as 80% of analytics data from the most common analytics packages which heavily rely on the use of cookies (such as GA and Adobe) is inaccurate.

How does Corvidae gather clickstream data without cookies – or browser extensions?

With a first-party pixel. Our pixel uses an Event Stream architecture, meaning it can be deployed in any conceivable environment, including: 

  • Website 

  • App 

  • 3rd-Party impressions where the vendor allows it

  • And in custom middleware

Do you use any third parties to build out a device graph?

No. We trialed using device graph and other ID graph data in the early days of Corvidae’s development but found that those data sets added little-to-no incrementality to the model’s accuracy. Today, we use only first-party pixel, AdTech, and other client data, all compliantly collected.

How does the AI within Corvidae work? Does it use first-party cookies or work another way?

No, it uses no cookies at all.  Our attribution model uses AI to understand the difference between a transacting and a non-transacting path to discover which touchpoints are influencing in your customers’ decision-making process. 

Our model is trained to understand each individual customer, demystifying which interactions were important to their decision to buy. 

Allowing Corvidae to tune itself to your customer’s behaviour – rather than making you decide what to value in advance.  You can think of the scoring of the AI as a measurement of the incrementality of each event in the conversion path towards a conversion – or non-conversion. This is the basis of Corvidae’s attributed value. 

GDPR Compliance

What is happening with Google Analytics?

The Schrems II ruling in 2020 was a milestone in EU policy regarding consumer data rights.

The EU took the position that Businesses cannot offload responsibility for data compliance onto their technology provider, and instead retain GDPR liability should EU data go outside the EU.

In February 2022, both Austria and France have ruled that Google Analytics is illegal from a GDPR view, as it cannot prevent data passing to the US, and the US security services have provably accessed Google data. It is expected that all EU member states will fall in line with this position over the coming months

Does this mean we should stop using Google Analytics?

While the ruling doesn’t mean that using Google Analytics is illegal, it is strongly recommended that marketers and businesses re-evaluate their current use of GA.

With Universal Analytics being replaced by GA4 for all users next year, it’s a perfect time to re-evaluate your current analytics set up and move away from cookie-based methods.


What support services are included?

Bi-weekly insights meetings and full time customer support.

How long does it take to get up and running?

All it takes is 3 steps to get started with Corvidae, and you’ll be on the road to accurate attribution in just 30 days.

Are you SOC2 compliant?

While we, as a SaaS platform, do not possess our own SOC2 report, we have a trusted partner who holds a SOC2 report. Our partner, Microsoft, has undergone an independent audit and has obtained a SOC 2 report that validates the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy controls of their services.

Are you GDPR, CCPA, and COPPA compliant?

QueryClick is a Data Controller in terms of the GDPR and UK GDPR and Corvidae is fully compliant with UK and EU GDPR regulation. All personal data is held in our secure systems and is irreversibly hashed to anonymise the data, and only processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way, in accordance with the GDPR, UK GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018.
