Software Data Compliance

Enecto Lead Generation products are a market leader in business to business sales helping businesses to gain insight into visitors to their website.

Enecto products works on the basis of reverse business IP tracking. Enecto Web Leads is using Google Analytics (GA) as a source of information and ProspectFinder4 uses a small tracking code which is placed on our customers´s website(s) which then enables it to identify and collect the IP address visiting that site. Enecto then matches the GA information or the identified company IP address to our global database of businesses and business information. If we are unable to identify a business it then utilizes a more in depth semi-automatic process to match and enhance the actual business information with complete demographic business information. Once that process is accomplished the business information actual company is added to our database.

The Enecto products is entirely focused on leveraging business related information to effectively match a business´s IP address with wider business data to provide valuable business related information to our customers. Enecto does not identify any personal IP addresses, mobile devices or any other data than that associated with the business.
Since business related data is not applicable under the new GDPR legislation, Enecto products and its various features are not relevant to GDPR.
