Every contact stored in your Iterable project has a user profile, which provides a complete view of the information you know about them:
- Properties that describe preferences and demographic information
- Events related to the messages you've sent them and their interactions with those messages
- Custom events associated with actions they've taken on your website or in your mobile apps
- Subscription preferences
- The contact's current Brand Affinity™ label
This data updates in real-time as you send information to Iterable and users engage with messages you send them.
