j2 Global Buys Contactology

Los Angeles-based j2 Global said this morning that it has acquired Contactology, a provider of email marketing services. Financial terms of the buy were not disclosed. j2 Global said the move would help expand its business cloud services division. Contactology was based in Durham, North Carolina. j2 Global said the financial impact is not expected to be material to the company. j2 Global--which owns a vast number of business cloud-based services in the area of Internet fax, virtual phone, email, email marketing, online backup, and more--said it would "tuck in" the new acquisition into its existing portfolio, by migrating Contactology customer's to its existing Campaigner platform and service. j2 Global, in addition to its cloud businesses, also owns Ziff Davis,,, and other online publications.
