CyArk collects the following types of personally identifying information ("PII") when you visit our Websites or use our Services:
Our servers, which may be hosted by a third-party service provider, collect certain technical data about your device and software, including your browser type, operating system, IP address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session and may indicate your general location), domain name, and/or a time stamp of your visit. We automatically gather this data and store it in log files each time you visit our website or access an account on our network. Unless you have provided PII in connection with your use of the Online Services (for example, by creating an account), we cannot use such technical data to identify your name or contact information.
We may also directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure traffic and usage trends in connection with the Online Services. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual person.
You may visit our Websites if you wish without creating an account or providing us with any information about yourself.
However, if you decide to use certain Services, you may be asked for information that we need in order to provide you with the Services requested. For example, if you decide to sign up for newsletters from us, request data from our Open Heritage Program, attend a virtual event, make a donation to us, or create an account to use certain Services, CyArk may collect some or all of the following PII from you: (1) first and last name, (2) organization name, (3) job title, (4) email address, (5) phone number, (6) location information including state/province and country, and (7) where applicable, a user-generated password for your account. If you provide payment information for a donation, that is securely processed by our third-party payment processor and not used for any other purpose.
If you provide us with feedback or contact us via email (e.g., in response to an employment or grant opportunity posted on our Website), we will collect your name and email address, as well as any other content or information included in or attached to your email, in order to send you a reply. If you order Services from us for a fee, we may also collect information needed for billing and payment purposes that will be processed through a secure third-party payment processor.
In summary, we use your PII to respond to your requests, to provide, secure and enhance the Online Services, and to comply with our legal obligations. In particular, CyArk uses your PII for the following purposes as necessary and as permitted by applicable law:
We may also compile statistical or anonymized, non-personally identifiable information and use or transfer such information for any purposes; provided, however, that such data has been fully de-identified and cannot in any way be traced back to the customer or user and does not contain any personally identifiable information. We may also such anonymized information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
In connection with our Websites and emails, we use third-party online analytics services, such as those of Google Analytics. These analytics services use automated technologies to collect information (such as email address, IP address, and device identifiers) to evaluate, for example, use of our products and services and to diagnose technical issues. To learn about how Google Analytics collects and processes data, you may visit https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, CyArk may disclose your PII in the following circumstances:
We may engage our affiliates or third-party organizations or individuals to support us in connection with the purposes listed above, such hosting providers, subcontractors, and third-party payment processors.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for CyArk to disclose your PII. We may also disclose your PII if we determine disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users.
We may share your PII if CyArk engages in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, sale of some or all of CyArk's assets, financing acquisition of all or a portion of our business, a similar transaction or proceeding, or steps in contemplation of such activities (e.g. due diligence).
We may also disclose your PII in other circumstances with your prior informed consent. Service providers acting on our behalf are obliged to adhere to confidentiality requirements no less protective than those set forth herein and will only receive access to your PII as necessary to perform their functions.
We are committed to protecting the security of information received via the Online Services, including PII. If we collect PII from you, we provide reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security controls designed to protect your PII from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Despite our efforts, no security controls are 100% risk-free, and CyArk does not warrant or guarantee that your PII will be secure in all circumstances. If you create an account, you are responsible for keeping your account credentials and passwords secure and not allowing others to use your account.
Our Websites and Services are intended for general audiences, and we do not knowingly collect PII from a child under 13 years old.
Please note if you are a California resident, please see Section IX "Additional Information for California Residents" below for more information about your privacy rights under California law.
You may edit any of your PII in your account on the Online Services, including contact information and/or notification settings, by editing your account profile.
