Aren’t IP addresses considered personal information?
IP addresses are considered personal only when they are linked to individuals or households. However, when IPs cannot be linked to a person or household they are not personal and therefore not within the scope of privacy legislation like GDPR or CCPA. Digiseg Audience Data is produced without the use of personal data. Digiseg’s IP addresses are mathematically derived. They are not collected from digital events. They are simply a list of possible IPs for a given territory. To see more on how Digiseg produces audience data please visit: How Digiseg Build Audience Data.
In Digiseg we segment neighborhoods, an approach that by nature is probabilistic. When you select an audience in our Audience Builder, some users will have the right characteristics while others may fall outside of your targeting criteria. That’s why we display the accuracy of your selected audience in two columns: In-Target Reach and Excess. In-Target Reach represents the number of users who fall within your specified audience criteria, while Excess represents the number of users who don’t. Together, these two columns make up the Total Segment Reach.
We do not segment businesses by vertical. However, we do have extensive experience with B2B campaigns, so contact our audience experts if you have a specific request. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Digiseg uses a selection of commercially available probabilistic geo-position vendors and compares their results. When the different geo position vendors’ results agree that an IP belongs to a specific neighborhood, we make the connection and add neighborhood characteristics to the IP. Digiseg is not trying to match IPs to exact households. Our geolocation only places the IP in a neighborhood of a minimum of 100 households.
Yes. We can provide both a pixel and a click url that can be used to profile any event: purchases, signups, downloads etc. Reporting is dependent on the frequency of the event being profiled.
