Intent FAQs

Is Bombora data GDPR and CCPA compliant?

Why is Bombora the best option for intent data?
Bombora uses a GDPR and CCPA compliant data co-op which leverages machine learning to determine consumption behavior, not simply access. This means that an AI-powered algorithm examines duration, scroll behavior, and content contextualization to synthesize truly accurate intent data into a Company Surge® score. If the score surges beyond 70, it’s data that matters and it’s sent to your team.

How is this different from other intent providers?
Most other intent providers use a risky bidstream practice by passing data through ad exchanges without consumer consent. Bidstream lives in a GDPR and CCPA compliance grey area in which companies who take action on this data become liable. Beyond the risk component, bidstream data is predominantly ad view based, and does not have a machine learning component which is better capable of understanding a consumer’s behavior.

Can you give me an example of the difference?
It’s the difference between someone reading an article about a social media solution, versus someone immediately bouncing from a page that mentioned the word Facebook. Only the first would result in an intent spike from Bombora, while a bidstream approach would result in a false positive for intent, meaning if your sales team reaches out – it will more likely be at the wrong time.

Data Co-Op vs Bidstream

Data Co-Op


Highly curated collection of content rich publishers. Data passed through ad exchanges based on ads seen on a webpage containing relevant keywords.
Exclusive list of publishers that are optimized for content and topic absorption. Scraped content from public sites that anyone has access to scrape with a bot and a business case.
Timestamping, URLs, IPs, scroll velocity and dwell time are all available within the context of reading the article/content. The primary use of the data is ad targeting so dwell time and other metrics are ad view based.
Standard customer terms reflect that the user will be cookied and information will be tracked and shared. Grey area at best as to whether or not the user truly opted in to have their behavior tracked by post ad view analysis.
