This guide explains Ometria’s security features to help you manage your account settings, user permissions and preferences.
Managing your users
The Settings and permissions page includes all of the information you need about:
- Adding a new user
- Setting user permissions
- Deleting a user
Passwords are set by the user when their account is created in Ometria.
When a new user account is created, that user receives an email notifying them that their profile has been created, prompting them to create a password and log into Ometria.
Passwords must be a minimum of 10 characters in length.
Administrators can also prompt users to reset their passwords.
Ometria automatically logs out users after 12 hours.
Excluding your company IP
To exclude your company IP address - which hides any traffic to your website which comes from your office, contact email@example.com
Ometria audit logs
Audit logs help companies monitor user activity and keep track of potential security breaches or internal misuses of information.
Ometria’s audit log records the following activity per Ometria account user:
- Authentication activity
- Report generation and data export
- All activity in the the users and permissions area
The audit log helps you track who did what, where they did it, and when.
Your general account settings and default email settings can be modified by an administrator from the Settings screen.
See: Settings and permissions for guidance.
All automatic alerts from Ometria are sent to the primary email address tied to your account. You are asked to provide this address during your onboarding.
Speak to your customer success manager if you’re unsure.
Coupon pool alerts
You will receive an automatic email alert from Ometria once your static coupon pool falls below 10% of your total usage for the past 30 days.
E.g. If you send 300k coupons over 30 days, the notification triggers once you have 30k remaining.
Campaign stalled alerts
If your campaign becomes stuck, or stalls for any reason (i.e. no new entries or sends are being processed) you will receive an email alert from Ometria prompting you to review the stalled campaign and contact support if necessary.

If you are a Magento 1, 2 or Shopify/Plus user, you will need to follow the link in the email to make sure the integration has been successfully completed.
Customer data protection
Administrator users and users with the correct permissions can anonymise contacts in Ometria, i.e. remove all personally identifiable information (PII data) from Ometria.
This doesn’t affect other statistics, e.g. number of orders, number of visits - it only makes the contact anonymous. This is to avoid data degradation, so you can still use the anonymised data for meaningful customer analysis.
When you anonymise a contact, they will no longer be tracked in Ometria.
However, if the contact enters their email address on your website after being anonymised, or if they click a link from an Ometria email campaign (even an old one), they will re-enter Ometria as a new contact. This is because they have effectively given permission for their details to be used again.
You can bulk anonymise contacts via API. Click here for more information.
To anonymise an individual contact, navigate to their contact profile:
Select Anonymise contact from the Edit drop-down:
A pop-up displays explaining that once you anonymise the contact it cannot be undone:
Enter a comment to explain the anonymisation if you like, and select Anonymise to continue.
You’ll see the following:
Note: It’s a good idea to make a note of your deletion request identifier in case you need to query this request with our support team.
Once the anonymisation has processed, none of the contact’s personal information will display in Ometria, including their name and email address:
If you click through to the contact’s profile, you can see that they have been anonymised in the Ometria platform, but their revenue and attribution information remains intact for reporting purposes:
Hiding email addresses
The Realtime dashboard’s Event stream displays contact’s email addresses as their visits and orders arrive in real time:
You can choose to hide this personally identifiable information (PII) from the Realtime dashboard - this is useful if you’re using the CRM only user option for some of your users.
Users with CRM only permissions can only see the Realtime dashboard, static segments and coupon pools.
To protect your contact’s information from these users, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have this functionality switched on for your account.
