DNP and Lotame Partner to Execute Cookieless Targeting with Cookieless Identity solution in Japan
Tokyo, June 20, 2023, Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. (DNP) has partnered with Lotame Solutions Inc.1 (Lotame) and GESHER,Inc.2 to provide cookieless identifier. It is an award-winning identity solution for the open web, that does not rely on 3rd-party cookies3. The new service was launched in Japan on May 25, 2023.
With a view to user privacy protection, cookie-related regulations have been strengthened in recent years. Amid the urgent need to build cookieless digital advertising strategies and other game plans DNP provides safe and secure services that do not exploit personal information.
The Japanese government has set out to restrict the use of 3rd-party cookies, which are scheduled to be fully phased out in the latter half of 2024. As a result, it will become difficult to perform targeted advertising, analysis and measurement of advertising effectiveness based on consumer website browsing histories. Consequently, advertising media companies and advertisers are rushing to develop cookieless digital advertising strategies and other game plans.
Built from multiple inputs (web, mobile, CTV, customer-specific IDs, and hashed email), Lotame’s Cookieless Identity solution is freely accessible to and interoperable across the cookie-challenged web, all domains, devices, and platforms globally. As a hybrid deterministic / probabilistic global identity solution, the identifier helps increase publisher inventory value and enables advertisers to target first- and third-party audience data on ‘cookieless’ inventory at scale.
DNP will push ahead with the provision of the new service, aiming for cumulative sales of 3.0 billion yen by 2027.
Together with Lotame, we plan to develop and provide advertising cookieless products, website visitor and user analysis, while developing and providing menus that enhance first-party data held by companies. We will also further advance digital advertising solutions that balance personal information protection and corporate advertising activities, and will investigate the development of new customer data analysis platforms, including Post-Cookie Products.
