SUMMARY

As a marketer, you have data housed in many data silos – in different locations and in multiple formats. From campaign performance data and site analytics through to CRM and email data, you capture a huge volume of insights into customers and prospects.
bGenius is a software company that engineers a digital marketing framework for advertisers and agencies. By integrating various ad platforms within the search, social and display environment we enable users to manage multiple advertising channels from one platform. bGenius connects to Digital Analytics platforms such as Google Analytics or Adobe Analytics. Combining these data sources result in cross channel insights and that’s how we empower users to act directly upon smart insights. We collect data from Ad platforms, Digital Analytics solutions and directly from the clients’ order database. Alongside the Campaign Management solution our framework has several tools to automate marketing activities.
This Privacy Policy explains what data may be collected by bGenius, how such data may be used and/or shared with others, how we safeguard it and how you may access and control its use. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully, because by using our bGenius application you are acknowledging that you understand and agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
