DAC partners with Sourcepoint to improve transparency of Sei-katsu-sha data used by advertisers and media companies

Tokyo, April 19, 2019 --- D.A.Consortium Inc. (DAC) announced today that it will partner with Sourcepoint, a company with operations in the United States and Europe, to begin providing Sourcepoint’s Consent Management Platform (CMP) to advertisers and media companies in Japan. This partnership will help improve transparency of data about sei-katsu-sha (our term for consumers that encompasses all aspects of their lives) used by advertisers and media companies while dispelling anxieties about privacy.

■What is the Consent Management Platform(CMP)?
CMP is a tool that provides information about data usage in a banner, pop-up or other format on a website or app. Data about sei-katsu-sha who have given consent can be used to deliver ads and improve websites.

On sites/apps with CMP, sei-katsu-sha can see which businesses are collecting their data and for what purpose, as well as stop these businesses from collecting further data. With CMP, advertisers and media companies can improve the transparency of data about sei-katsu-sha.

Sourcepoint is fully compliant with the GDPR Transparency and Consent Framework (*2) as defined by IAB Tech Lab (*1) of the U.S. and hence can obtain and process data of sei-katsu-sha who have access from the European Economic Area in compliance with GDPR.

Key features and benefits of Sourcepoint’s CMP include:

(2) Simple creation of a consent acquisition dialog box that matches the website’s design
(3) Distribution setting of the consent acquisition dialog box according to the attributes (country, consent/non consent, etc.) of the accessing sei-katsu-sha
(4) Message optimization of the consent acquisition dialog box according to the A/B test
(5) Creation and customization of a "Privacy Manager" where sei-katsu-sha can select according to usage purpose and collection vendors

With this collaboration, DAC will work to expand CMP in Japan and support advertisers and media companies in their efforts to improve the transparency and the protection of privacy of sei-katsu-sha data.
