I think you're getting CPM-CUME confused with a surround
session. The idea is that we can target unique visitors,
not follow them around. An individual would only see a
particular advertisement once in x amount of days (the x
to be determined by the advertiser). For the advertiser,
we're trying to decrease the number of times a viewer
sees an ad, and for the publisher, we're trying to
increase the value of a unique visitor. Think of it as a
unique frequency cap of up to 28 days. It does use cookies,
and our Advertisers can rotate as many banners as they wish.

Some campaigns require a number of impressions to be viewed
by the same user before the s/he commits; others only need
to impact the user once or twice every few days/weeks to
make the sale. Fastclick's goal is to provide a solution
for each of these scenarios.

I don't think you're ready for a nursing home quite yet. :-)
