Pricing & Data Privacy

Is Data Streams free?

We offer a free (individual plan) along with paid plans. Visit our plan page for more information.

What's the difference between the free (individual) and paid plans?

In a nutshell, the free plan has a 50k/month row limitation and offers access to our existing connector list and support center.

For the paid plans, the Business plan offers up to one million rows per month, and the Enterprise plan allows up to three million rows of data per month. Depending on the plan, the following may be included: solution setup, on-boarding, training, a dedicated account manager, priority technical support, and the option to create custom-built connectors is also included.
For more information about the paid plans, please contact us at

Do you have any hidden fees for the free (individual) plan?

No, there are no hidden fees. Data Streams is absolutely free to use!

Why are you offering a free (individual) plan? Are you selling my data?

We're building these tools so that we can do our job better as an analytics services agency, and in the meantime to help analysts and marketers do their job better

We don't cache any of the data you pass through our tools, let alone store it or sell it in any way. Data Streams is essentially a pipeline. It sends data from the marketing cloud platforms directly into your data warehouse.

How does Cognetik make money?

We make our money by selling our products and analytics services to Fortune 1000 companies around the world. We help them enable the tools we build within their enterprises so they can extract transformational insights.

So, if one of our clients needs help with their dashboards, tag management solutions, A/B testing, funnel analysis, reports automation, or even training on analysis and implementation, our team of industry experts is there to help them.

The Cognetik Cloud Connector and Data Streams are just a few of the tools we built with our dedicated product and engineering team, but we have great products in the pipeline that we'll continue to launch and improve.
