Data Watermarking allows you to add unique tracking records (known as "seeds") into your database and then monitors how your data is being used - even when it has moved outside of your organisation's direct control. The service works for e-mail, physical mail, landline and mobile telephone calls and is designed to build you a detailed picture of the real use of your data. Our proven, unique, service has been developed over 20 years and provided unequivocal evidence of use (or mis-use) should you need it.

You’ll sleep easy knowing that if the worst does happen you’ll be the first to know and be able to act quickly to save your organisation from a potential data nightmare.

Quick & Easy Setup

Our experienced team will listen to your needs and quickly create the right watermarking service for you. Even urgent requests can be accomodated quickly.

Real & Unique

Every one of the millions of seeds we have created is unique and fully deliverable. Our reporting is unequivaical and our strong audit trail has been proven time and time again.

Comprehensive Reporting

Not only do you get regular reports listing all the activity on your account but we also notify you quickly of any activity that appears to be unusual or of a nature likely to be of concern.


What our clients say:

“We migrated our seed procedures to DQM GRC almost a year ago. The migration was painless from the start, as they understood the requirements needed to implement this process. The new functionality implemented in conjunction with DQM GRC, allows us to monitor and protect our data both from external and internal breaches and abuse. Because of the timely manner on which we receive the monthly reports, we can also track the transit time of our physical mailing communications, especially in areas on which the post could sometimes be unreliable. Finally DQM GRC has helped us to detect emailing anomalies performed by our clients even before our database personnel recognize they´ve happened, increasing the lead time to escalate potential brand issues.”
