The pages of their Privacy section titled “

Privacy Policy for www.acxiom.com

” and “

US Products Privacy Policy

” admit that the company is involved in the sharing of information among the family of companies under the

Interpublic Group of Companies

. Both pages can be accessed by clicking on the link in the scroll down menu located on the right side of the main Privacy page. Acxiom promises that the sharing of such information is in the best interest of:
  • supporting the relationship between the company and consumers
  • increasing visitor’s ease in the use of the website
  • informing consumers of services and product updates, new products and other related information from the company
Nevertheless, you can’t really trust a company like Acxiom; it’s become common knowledge that data companies often breach their own policies for the sake of profit. If you’re not comfortable with the company’s handling of consumer information, there are means to opt out of their marketing campaigns and request that they delete your consumer information as made mandatory by law.

Acxiom, a Data Broker Company

Acxiom can be classified as a Data Broker Company as it has access to information collected directly from consumers and through third party companies. With access to so much data on individuals, companies like Acxiom become the target of corporations looking to increase their already overflowing databases. As a result, there’s a great chance that Acxiom may be selling your consumer information to other companies and you have a right to be both sceptical and concerned. However, with the law on your side, you can request that Acxiom prevent the sale of your consumer information and even delete that information to give you a peace of mind.

Opting Out and Deleting Your Consumer Information

As stated in their Privacy Policy, Acxiom recognizes current US laws granting consumers the right to have their information deleted from the company’s databases and/or opt out of current and future marketing campaigns through which their information can be sold. Therefore, Acxiom has made provisions for anyone desiring to make such requests. No matter if the request is a miniscule link on a webpage or a link lost somewhere in the Privacy Policies, we’ll help you find your way.
Requests to opt out of Acxiom’s marketing campaigns or delete your consumer information are processed online beginning with an online form. The forms are accessed at the bottom of the “

” webpage as shown in the image below.

Freedom Exercised

Feel confident knowing that you’ve become one of many Americans who’ve taken another step to exercise their personal data rights against big businesses and corporations.
