The data market’s challenge

Many times, marketers do not have access to the source of the data behind the segment they are buying and little to no choice in what data source they use.

This means marketers are not getting the audience they paid for, and thus the audience they are reaching is not relevant. This leaves the market flooded with inaccurate data.


With ownerIQ, marketers know exactly where their data is sourced from. Now marketers not only know what data they are buying, but have the ability to choose the data that is the most relevant to them.

Marketer's Choices

First-Party data
Relevant. Transparent. Scarce.

A brand, or marketer’s own data such as cookied audience aggregated from visits to their website or CRM data.

Third-Party data
Scalable. Non-transparent. Irrelevant.

Data aggregated by a third-party and organized into non-transparent segments.

Second-Party Data

Relevant. Transparent. Scalable.

Transparent access to another retailer, brand or marketer’s first party data.

Second-party data and the new data economy

“Second-party data sharing is when a retailer, brand, publisher, or marketer gains transparent access to the website audience data of another retailer, brand, publisher, or marketer for marketing purposes – to their mutual benefit.” -Forrester Research, The Era of Second-Party Data is Here, September 2016

It is the inevitable evolution of the entire data market to provide marketers with transparency and choice.

The Most Valuable Data is Second-Party Data

Purchasing and shopping data from retailers and brands are the building blocks of the new data economy.

The Most Valuable Data (“MVD”) on consumers is shopping and buying behavior.

It is the best predictor of intent, and it can inform the rest of the purchasing cycle – from targeting to measurement.

Xaxis Logo

Two non-competitive travel advertisers came to Xaxis looking to establish a controlled data sharing partnership. We quickly realized that there is a missing link needed to set up this type of a relationship. That link is a second-party data platform which gives advertisers an easy way to control and negotiate the terms of their arrangement.

Canon Logo

Reaching millennials who are not as familiar with our brand has become considerably more challenging. Through the ability of accessing the audiences of our key retailers and those browsing for travel accessories, second-party data has helped us reach the right audience and expand Canon’s brand message.

Rosetta Logo

First-party data is easy. You follow that guy from the website. But second-party is that extra spoke in the wheel. It opens up a lot more opportunity. It's a good awareness driver. It's just as relevant [if not more] as first- and third-party data. They complement each other very well.
