Tufin is headquartered in the USA and Israel, a jurisdiction which is considered by the European Commission, the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) and the UK Secretary of State to be offering an equally adequate level of protection for the personal data of residents of the EEA, Switzerland and the UK, respectively. We transfer personal data from the EEA, Switzerland and the UK to Israel on this basis. For data transfers from the EEA, Switzerland or the UK to countries which are not considered to be offering an adequate level of data protection, we and the relevant data exporters and importers have entered into Standard Contractual Clauses as approved by the European Commission, FDPIC and UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). You can obtain a copy by contacting us as indicated in Section 11 below.
We retain personal data for as long as we deem it as reasonably necessary in order to maintain and expand our relationship and provide you with our Services and offerings; in order to comply with our contractual obligations; or to protect ourselves from any potential disputes (i.e. as required by laws applicable to log-keeping, records and bookkeeping, and in order to have proof and evidence concerning our relationship, should any legal issues arise following your discontinuance of use), all in accordance with our data retention policy.
To determine the appropriate period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and the applicable legal requirements.
If you have any questions regarding our data retention practices, please contact us by email at [email protected].
We disclose personal data in the following ways:
Service Providers: We may engage selected third-party companies and individuals to perform services on our behalf or complementary to our own. Such service providers include hosting and server co-location services, communications and content delivery networks (CDNs), data security services, billing and payment processing services, fraud detection and prevention services, web and product analytics, e-mail distribution and monitoring services, session or activity recording services, remote access services, content transcription and analysis services, performance measurement, data optimization and marketing services, social and advertising networks, content and data enrichment providers, event production and hosting services, e-mail, voicemails, support, enablement and customer relation management systems, and our legal, financial and compliance advisors (collectively, “Service Providers“). Our Service Providers may have access to personal data, depending on each of their specific roles and purposes in facilitating and enhancing our Services, and may only use the data as determined in our agreements with them.
Legal Compliance: We may disclose or allow government and law enforcement officials access to your personal data in response to a legal request, such as a subpoena, search warrant or court order (or similar requirement), or in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, with or without notice to you. Such disclosure or access may occur if we believe in good faith that: (a) we are legally compelled to do so; (b) disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding actual or suspected illegal activity, fraud, or other wrongdoing; or (c) such disclosure is required to protect our legitimate business interest, including the security or integrity of our products and Services.
Sharing Personal Data with our Customers: We may share Users’ personal data with their affiliated organization, or the organization to which systems (powered by Tufin's Solutions) they attempted to access.
In certain cases, other Users from your organization may control your account and will be entitled to monitor, process and analyse your data and associated content, including (i) view any content you submit and your activities on the Services; (ii) view statistics regarding your account; (iii) change your account password or other access credentials or privileges; (iv) suspend or terminate your account access; and (v) access or retain data stored as part of your account. Please note that in these circumstances Tufin is not responsible for and does not control any further disclosure, use or monitoring by or on behalf of your organization, that acts as the “Data Controller” of such data (as further described in Section 10 below).
Protecting Rights and Safety: We may share your personal data with others, if we believe in good faith that this will help protect the rights, property or personal safety of Tufin, any of our Visitors, Customers, Users or Prospects, or any members of the general public.
Additional Sharing: Tufin may share your personal data in additional manners, pursuant to your explicit approval, or if we are legally obligated to do so, or if we have successfully rendered such data non-personal and anonymous. Additionally, we may transfer, share or otherwise use non-personal data at our sole discretion and without the need for further approval.
Cookies are packets of information sent to your web browser and then sent back by the browser each time it accesses the server that sent the cookie. Some cookies are removed when you close your browser session. These are the “Session Cookies”. Some last for longer periods and are called “Persistent Cookies”. We use both types.
Some cookies are necessary for the Services to function properly, and cannot be declined or disabled unless you delete and block them through your web browser settings. Other cookies, which are used for functional, performance, analytics and marketing purposes, are optional. These include web and app analytics tools and tools that provide us with insights on the performance of our ads and campaigns.
You can also opt-in to or opt-out from the use of optional cookies through the “Cookie Settings” feature available on our website. If you choose to opt-out of certain cookies, this will typically generate a new cookie which will preserve your choice, and indicate it to our Services in your next visits so that the cookies you opted-out of will not be utilized. You can also manage your cookies preferences, and accept, remove or entirely block cookies, through your browser settings. Please note that certain web browsers may transmit “Do Not Track” signals to websites with which the browser communicates, telling the website not to follow its online movements. Because of differences in how web browsers interpret this feature and send those signals, and lack of standardization, we currently do not respond to such “Do Not Track” signals.
Please note that if you get a new device, install a new browser, erase or otherwise alter your browser’s cookie file (including upgrading certain browsers), you may also clear the opt-out cookies installed once you opt-out, so an additional opt-out will be necessary to prevent additional tracking.
Service Communications: Tufin may contact you with important information regarding our Services. For example, we may notify you (through any of the means available to us) of changes or updates to our Services, billing issues, service maintenance or changes, password retrieval notices, etc. You will not be able to opt-out of receiving such service communications while using our Services, as they are integral to such use.
Notifications and Promotional Communications: We may send you notifications concerning new features, offerings, events, and special opportunities or any other information we think you will find valuable. We may provide such notices through any of the contacts means available to us (e.g., phone, mobile or email), through the Services, or through our marketing campaigns on any other websites or platforms.
If you do not wish to receive such promotional communications, you may notify us at any time by sending an email to [email protected] or by following the "unsubscribe", "stop" or "change email preferences" instructions contained in the promotional communications you receive.
Tufin and its Service Providers implement systems, applications, and procedures to secure your personal data, to minimize the risks of theft, damage, loss of information, or unauthorized access or use of information. These measures provide sound industry-standard security. However, please be aware that regardless of any security measures used or implemented, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of any personal data stored with us or with any third parties.
Data Subject Rights
Individuals have rights concerning their personal data. Please contact us by e-mail at: [email protected] if you wish to exercise your privacy rights under any applicable law, including the EU or UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA), the Colorado Privacy Act (CPA) and other similar US State Laws. Such rights may include – to the extent applicable – the right to know/request access to (specific pieces of personal data collected; categories of personal data collected; categories of sources from whom the personal data was collected; purpose of collecting personal data; categories of third parties with whom we have shared personal data), to request rectification or erasure of your personal data held with Tufin, or to restrict or object to such personal data’s processing (including the right to direct us not to sell your personal data to third parties now or in the future), or to port such personal data, or the right to equal services and prices (e.g. freedom from discrimination) (each to the extent available to you under the laws which apply to you). If you are a GDPR-protected individual, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority in the EU or the UK, as applicable.
Please note that when you ask us to exercise any of your rights under this policy or applicable law, we may need to ask you to provide us certain credentials to make sure that you are who you claim you are, to avoid disclosure to you of personal data related to others and to ask you to provide further information to better understand the nature and scope of data that you request to access. If your request relates to personal data contained in Customer Data (i.e., personal data we process on our Customer’s behalf as its “data processor” or “service provider”, as further explain in Section 10 below), please note that such Customer exclusively determines how such data may be processed, as well as if and how your request should be handled – so we advise that you submit your request directly to them. We will not fulfill your request unless you have provided sufficient information that enables us to reasonably verify that you are the individual about whom we collected the personal data, and if such data is processed on behalf of any of our Customers – to which Customer it particularly relates, so that we may forward it to them for their further handling. Such additional information may be then retained by us for legal purposes (e.g., as proof of the identity of the person submitting the request, or proof of request fulfillment).
We may redact from the data which we will make available to you, any personal data or confidential information related to others.
Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the EU GDPR, UK GDPR and CCPA, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing personal data: the “Data Controller” (or under the CCPA, the “Business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “Data Processor” (or under the CCPA, the “Service Provider”), who processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller. Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services and Solutions, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.
Tufin is the “Data Processor” of Customer Data. Such data is being processed by Tufin on behalf of the Customer (who is the “Data Controller” of such data; and our Service Providers who process such Customer Data on our behalf are the “sub-processors of such data). Accordingly, Tufin processes Customer Data strictly in accordance with our Customer’s reasonable instructions and as further stipulated in our data processing addendum and other commercial agreement with such Customer.
Our Customers are solely responsible for determining whether and how they wish to use our Services, and for ensuring that all individuals using the Services on the Customer’s behalf or at their request, as well as all individuals whose personal data may be included in Customer Data processed through the Services, have been provided with adequate notice and given informed consent to the processing of their personal data, where such consent is necessary or advised, and that all legal requirements applicable to the collection, recording, use or other processing of data through our Services are fully met by the Customer, including specifically in the context of an employment relationship. Our Customers are also responsible for handling data subject rights requests under applicable law, by their Users and other individuals whose data they process through the Services.
Additional Notices and Contact Details
Requirements under US State Privacy Laws: This policy describes the categories of personal information we may collect and the sources of such information (in Section 1 above), and our retention (Section 4) and deletion practices (Section 9). We also included information about how we may process your information (in Sections 2 through 7), which includes for “business purposes” under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), as amended/Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA)/Colorado Privacy Act (CPA) and similar state laws, as applicable. We do not sell or “share” your personal information for the intents and purposes of the CCPA or CPRA, nor disclose personal information that we “control” to any third party for their direct marketing purposes. We may disclose personal data to third parties or allow them to collect personal data from our Services as described in Section 5 above, if those third parties are our Customers (with respect to Customer Data processed on their behalf), or our authorized Service Providers or business partners who have agreed to our contractual limitations as to their retention, use, and disclosure of such personal data, or if you integrate the services of third parties with our Services, or direct us to disclose your personal data to third parties, or as otherwise described in Section 5 above. You may also designate, in writing or through a power of attorney, to request to exercise your privacy rights on your behalf. The authorized agent may submit a request to exercise these rights be emailing us. Note that we will not discriminate against you by withholding our Services from you or providing a lower quality of service to you for requesting to exercise your rights under the law. If you have any questions or would like to exercise your rights under the CCPA/CPRA/VCDPA/CPA or other similar state laws, you can contact [email protected] or our DPO at [email protected].
Children’s Privacy: Our Services are not intended for use by children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal data from minors under the age of 18 and do not wish to do so.
