# How the integration works
Amazon S3 Integration allows Bloomreach Engagement to directly connect to your Amazon file storage, and import or export the data from/to this storage. S3 integration also enables Adform retargeting integration.
You can specify the exact region and bucket where Bloomreach Engagement will look for files. In both imports and exports, it includes all features - regex file lookup, new file uploaded trigger and selection rules for imports and dynamic file naming for exports.
