Kochava Collective is the world’s largest independent mobile-first data marketplace. Marketers utilize it for affinity audiences, interest targeting, and audience demographics. You’ll have access to 1st-party data for audience enrichment and target market segmentation with seamless activation options.
The Collective is privacy first, by design, and complies with user data privacy and consent regulations, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Free App Analytics customers contributing to our first-party data footprint are required to adhere to consent and privacy regulations in any jurisdiction where they serve users, with free access to implement Kochava’s intelligent consent management platform. All premium third-party suppliers are thoroughly vetted for data integrity and must pass appropriate privacy string and consent signals. To learn more about our privacy stance review our data security & privacy page.
How the Collective works
Data collected from vetted first- and third-party sources are ingested and segmented into various behavioral, demographic, and location audience buckets. These audience data segments can be leveraged to enhance a client’s internal database for more detailed audience targeting and analysis. Audience data can also be activated across major social and programmatic platforms.
With Free App Analytics (FAA), Kochava provides a no-cost campaign measurement and analytics solution to tens of thousands of apps worldwide. In exchange for free service, Free App Analytics clients grant a first-party data license to the Collective, contributing premium first-party data directly through the integrated FAA software development kit (SDK) in their app. The FAA SDK touches more than 1 billion devices globally, offering valuable insights into in-app activity, device platform and OS, app affinity, and more.

The Collective’s first-party foundation is further bolstered by premium third-party suppliers who provide unique enrichment spanning precision geo, points of interest (POI), demographics and much more. Prior to onboarding, all third-party Collective suppliers are vetted for data quality and contextual relevance through a comprehensive fraud review, metadata validation, and addressability verification.
The Kochava Collective does not include any data from enterprise Kochava measurement platform customers. Collective data is stored independently from the Unified Audience Platform, where enterprise customers measure and optimize their campaign activity across devices and channels. Kochava does not share or license the data of its enterprise customers.
