  • Patent number: 11657430
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards employing multiple profiles to track identification of users across multiple domains. Multiple application-domain profiles and multiple web-domain profiles may each include a statistical identifier. A profile enrichment store may be generated from the application-domain profiles and web-domain profiles, where each entry in the profile enrichment store may be based on statistical identifiers. The profile enrichment store may be utilized to determine categories associated with a statistical identifier for a request from a client device. A targeted advertisement may be determined based on the determined category and may be provided to the client device. A client caching identifier may be used in a mobile web domain, in combination with the statistical identifier, to track mobile web users. If a request is associated with a profile that includes an affirmative opt-out flag, categories in the profile enrichment store for a corresponding statistical identifier may be cleaned up.

  • Patent number: 11636507
    Abstract: A control system determines whether a browser is retrieving supplemental content over a slow or faulty network using a tracking indicator. Based on determining that browser is retrieving supplemental content over a slow or faulty network, the control system modifies responses to opportunities to provide supplemental content to the browser. The control system may modify responses by declining to bid, responding with a lower bid amount, or responding with alternate supplemental content. Based on determining that browser is no longer retrieving supplemental content over a slow or faulty network, the control system modifies responses to opportunities to provide supplemental content to the browser by responding with a higher bid amount or responding with the original supplemental content. Thus, the control system maximizes the use of control system and campaign manager resources by responding to opportunities according to the likelihood that they will result in an impression or a conversion.

  • Patent number: 11625736
    Abstract: An insight engine that takes into account a wide variety of information from a wide variety of sources for predicting a sales insight is generated. The insight engine is generated using machine learning. Historical customer-specific information, product-specific information, and environmental information are aggregated, based on customer, product, and/or time period, into historical customer profiles. The historical customer profiles are labeled with historical sales insights to form a training set. A machine learning algorithm is applied to the training set to generate an insight engine. The insight engine is applied to a target customer profile to determine a predicted sales insight for a target entity.

  • Patent number: 11599918
    Abstract: Systems and methods for automated generation and presentation of thematic content objects to consumers in a retail environment are provided. A portable device may include a transmitter or transceiver that emits, produces or otherwise transmits a signal that includes information and/or data representative of an identifier that uniquely identifies the portable device. Upon entering an establishment thematic content delivery circuitry detects the presence of the portable device and obtains the identifier included in the signal emitted by the portable device. Using the identifier, the thematic content delivery circuitry determines a theme logically associated with the identifier. The thematic content delivery circuitry generates thematic content output that is logically associated with the theme and communicates the thematic content output to an output device. The thematic content output may include display output, audio output, tactile output, hardcopy output, or combinations thereof.

  • Patent number: 11587151
    Abstract: Techniques for providing a seamless user experience across electronic and physical retail stores of a retailer include storing, locally with a session corresponding to a user's visit to the retailer's electronic store, indications of items that were viewed and/or focused on by the user at the electronic store. At least some of said indications may be transferred to a centralized data storage of the retailer for persistence after the session is terminated. Subsequently, an electronic device operated by the user may determine its location and determine, based on its location, a particular physical retail store of the retailer. Via communications with one or more retailer servers, items that were recently viewed by the user at the electronic store may be identified, and indications thereof may be presented on the display of the electronic device in conjunction with information corresponding to the recently viewed items at the particular physical store.

  • Patent number: 11582263
    Abstract: A DNS server receives from a receiving email system, a DNS query for an email domain stored at the DNS server, the DNS query including identifying information of a sender of an email. The DNS server extracts the identifying information of the email sender from the DNS query and identifies one of a plurality of delivering organizations from the information. The DNS server determines whether the identified delivering organization is authorized to deliver email on behalf of the email domain. In response to determining that the identified delivering organization is authorized to deliver email on behalf of the email domain, the DNS server generates a target validation record based on the identity of the authorized delivering organization and the email domain, the target validation record including one or more rules indicating to the receiving email system whether the delivering organization is an authorized sender of email for the email domain.
