RTB updates

Introducing DIV wrapper around creative content

The MRC Viewable Ad Impression Measurement Guidelines have specified that venders should measure the viewability of an ad based on the ad itself as opposed to inferring viewability by measuring the containing iframe. In order to comply with the guidelines, a DIV wrapper will be added around the creative content. This change will affect all non-video creative elements. Contact your account manager for more information.
