Acxiom was started out by Charles D. Ward, as a business called Demographics, Inc. The company came from its beginnings in 1969 changing to Acxiom in 1988 and claiming the world’s largest database of consumers by 2012.

The company grew further after acquiring LiveRamp for $310 million, which owned a site Aboutthedata.com that formerly allowed consumers to transparently view and edit their personal marketing data on the LiveRamp’s site. The two companies split in September 2018 and now the data previously transparently available belongs to Acxiom. Acxiom allows individuals to submit personal details, it claims, to have the record under them deleted, but customers may not look at and edit their data any longer.
