KDDI CORPORATION (Headquarters: Chiyoda, Tokyo, President: Makoto Takahashi; referred to as KDDI below), Supership Holdings Inc. (Headquarters: Toranomon, Tokyo, President: Shingo Inaba; referred to as Supership Holdings below) and Supership Inc. (Headquarters: Toranomon, Tokyo, President: Takeshi Ohasa; referred to as Supership below) are jointly developing a next-generation digital advertising platform (referred to as the platform below) scheduled to launch in January 2022. The platform will prioritize data privacy while serving highly relevant advertising based on customer lifestyles.

At the core, the patented technology provided by Novatiq Ltd. (Headquarters: Wales, UK, CEO: Jonathan Hulford-Funnell; referred to as Novatiq below) enables advertisers to activate audiences using only permission-based data.

KDDI, Supership Holdings and Supership Holdings will integrate the platform with Superships advertising platform to provide optimized digital marketing for advertisers.

New Digital Advertising Platform Overview

To date, using 3rd party data [

1] to reach audiences based on customer interests and needs across websites and apps has been a mainstream practice in digital marketing. However, from a data privacy protection viewpoint, this is globally becoming more problematic, as much of this 3rd party data originates from tracking customer behavior with Cookies or advertising IDs (referred to as ADID below) without consent. This situation demands new marketing methods that dont rely on the utilization of such 3rd party data.

The platform protects the customers data privacy by generating a transient one-time token (referred to as ad delivery ID below) [

2] for each website or mobile app interaction combined with KDDIs permission-based attribution (e.g. gender, age group, etc.). It enables advertisers to serve highly relevant ads using only permission-based data, ensures that customer privacy is protected, and supports effective marketing.

KDDI, Supership Holdings and Supership will utilize this new technology in their aim to spread the use of digital ad delivery that prioritizes privacy.

For more information, please refer to the attachment.

Attachment About the Platform 1. Features


Privacy-First Platform:

The platform serves highly effective digital advertising through the utilization of original ad delivery IDs that arent dependent on Cookies or ADIDs.

Ad delivery IDs are randomly generated when websites and apps are accessed to ensure ad delivery IDs arent saved on customer devices such as smartphones and computers. In addition, customer action histories arent tracked or collected across websites and apps.


Realization of digital ad delivery relevant to customers lifestyle:

The platform connects permission-based 1st party data [

3] from the KDDI Group to the ad delivery ID using IP addresses in an intermediate step. This cohort information (gender, age group, etc.) is used to determine which ad is delivered.

While taking data privacy into consideration, advertisers can reach audiences with highly relevant digital advertisements based on customer lifestyle.


Service provided via Superships ad platform which sees 35bn monthly impressions:

The platform built on Novatiqs patented technology will be provided via Superships DSP (ScaleOut) and SSP (Ad Generation).

SSP (Ad Generation) is a multifaceted platform centering around mobile apps, it boasts a wealth of inventory, and delivers ads to customers through premium media.

Supership Holdings entered into a capital and business alliance [

4] with Novatiq in June 2021. This agreement gives Supership Group the exclusive rights to use Novatiqs patented technology in Asia.

Only permission-based data is utilized. Data handling complies with all relevant laws and regulations to ensure appropriate information security. In addition, any personally identifiable data such as the names of individuals, addresses including street numbers, telephone numbers, and email addresses are not utilized.

For details regarding data usage or ad delivery system, please refer to the privacy portal: (in Japanese only)

2. Launch Date: January 2022

3. Fees: For inquiries regarding fees, please contact Supership Inc.
