Software Data Compliance - Webeo

Software Data Compliance Policy

The Webeo product is a B2B marketing enablement tool and is a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution. We specialise in tailor made website personalisation for businesses of all industries and sizes. Webeo allows businesses to personalise their website against a number of variables, enabling them to deliver a targeted, rich, specifically tailored experience for their business website visitors. Webeo personalises against key criteria including company name, industry, employee band, geography and turnover.

Webeo works on the basis of reverse business IP tracking. A small tracking code is placed on our clients’ website(s) which then enables them to identify the business IP addresses of their website visitors. Webeo matches the identified business IP address to a wholly owned global database of businesses and business information. It then delivers a pre-designed personalisation specific to the business if one has been created. Webeo customers also have the option to implement a cookie alongside the code to enhance the tracking capabilities of the software.

Any unmatched IP addresses are discarded, leaving only the matched business IP addresses. Webeo will only present a personalised version of the website if a business IP address matches an audience set up within Webeo. All other IP addresses will see the standard version of the website. Visits from unmatched IP addresses are counted but are not stored. The matched businesses, their associated IP addresses, their journey through the website and the personalisation version that they experienced are stored within Webeo to enable effective and robust reporting.

The Webeo software is entirely focused on leveraging business related information to effectively match a business IP address with wider business data to provide a richer, more relevant website experience for the visiting business on behalf of our clients. Webeo does not identify any personal IP addresses, mobile devices, sole traders or any other data than that associated with registered businesses, with static IP addresses.

Business related data is not applicable under GDPR – which has the intention of protecting personal data. Therefore, the majority of the Webeo solution and its features are not relevant to GDPR.
