  • Google AdWords: allows us to see which  keywords, web pages and ad text helped lead to conversions such as contact form submissions or whitepaper downloads. This allows us to ensure our paid ad spend is used in the most efficient way.
  • DoubleClick: allows us to use Remarketing code to log when users view specific web pages, and fit specific criteria, so we can serve tailored advertising on other websites. This information could include interests, affinity audiences, in market segments, demographics, similar audiences, device usage, user location, your use of our website and more.
