WRITE - Create a campaign

A successful call return the Eloqua ID of the new campaign. This ID number is saved to provide history and logging details.

FeedOtter Encryption

All pertinent user and account data is encrypted using AES256. This includes passwords, email addresses, api tokens, keys, and associated data.

All campaign details at-rest are also encrypted and include generic "ids" never any personal or PII details.

FeedOtter's user/login password scheme uses PBKDF2.

There is no use of MD5 or Sha hashing.

Prospects and Personal Information

FeedOtter NEVER accesses your leads, email addresses, employees, or company information. As described in the previous section we perform read-only queries to provide UI elements and two write operations to create a new email and campaign.
