5. Cookies and Tracking Technologies
Tufin and some of its Service Providers utilize "cookies", anonymous identifiers and other tracking technologies, which help us provide, secure and improve our Services, personalize your experience and monitor the performance of our activities and campaigns.
A “cookie” is a small text file that is used, for example, to collect data about activity on our Websites. Some cookies and other technologies serve to recall Personal Data, such as an IP address previously indicated by a Visitor or User.

9. Data Controller / Processor
Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the GDPR, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing Personal Data: the “Data Controller”, who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “Data Processor”, who processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller. Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.
If Tufin agrees (in writing) to process Personal Data on a Customer’s behalf, such Customer shall be deemed the “Data Controller” of this data. The Customer will be solely responsible for meeting any legal requirements applicable to Data Controllers (such as establishing a legal basis for processing and responding to Data Subject Rights requests concerning the data they control).
If you would like to make any requests or queries regarding your Personal Data that we process on our Customer’s behalf, please contact such Customer directly. For example, if you wish to access, correct, or delete data processed by Tufin on behalf of a Customer, please direct your request to the relevant Customer (who is the “Data Controller” of such data). Should we receive such requests directly, we may refer them to our Customer.
