Last year, Segment announced the launch of the Segment Privacy Portal, a new set of features that help businesses put their customers first through proactive privacy management. With the Privacy Portal, businesses can have more control and visibility of the first-party customer data they are collecting. This allows them to more easily meet compliance requirements for regulations, enforce data policies and protect their customers’ privacy.
In addition, the company’s new Functions capability allows Segment customers to create new, custom data integrations in minutes, providing businesses with the flexibility to customise their marketing and analytics stacks and unlock new customer insights.
