Data distributors (also data intermediaries) make third-party data available to third parties and thereby bring together data holders (more specifically, data providers) and data users. Data holders can make their data available to third parties, which may be other data holders or data users, through data distributors or directly. They typically use data distribution technologies and services provided by solution providers. Moreover, it is not unlikely that they also use technologies and services focusing on data processing or aggregation.
Example: An example for a data distributor is a reseller, which offers flower data to business customers,
while the data holder (the generator or collector of the flower data) itself may only target consumers via
a consumer app.
