Second-party data

Second-party data refers to another company’s first-party data that is shared or sold directly between the two parties. In this data-sharing arrangement, both parties exchange the data with mutual consent. This type of data sharing often occurs through trusted partnerships, collaborations, or direct agreements between companies.

The exchange of second-party data relies on high trust between the two parties. Both organizations should know that the shared data is accurate, relevant, and obtained with proper consent from the individuals involved.

Since second-party data originates from another company’s first-party data, it is often considered to be of higher quality and accuracy than third-party data from external sources.
