Your California Privacy Rights

PerimeterX not only stands for exceptional security solutions, but also strives to set the standard in data protection. PerimeterX’s top priority is ensuring that it protects the rights and privacy of data subjects in accordance with applicable laws. PerimeterX’s full privacy policy can be found here: The California’s Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and Cal. Civ. Code Section 1798.83 require that we make certain disclosures found here. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this CCPA Privacy Notice.

1. No Sales Of Your Personal Information.

PerimeterX does not sell your personal information. In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have not sold your personal information.

2. Right To Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed Or Sold.

The CCPA provides “consumers” (i.e. California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. In particular, consumers have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you (i) the categories of personal information we collected about you, (ii) the categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you, (iii) our business or commercial purpose for collecting or (if applicable) selling that personal information, (iv) the categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information, and (v) the specific piece of personal information we have collected.

You also have the right to request a business that sells your personal information, or discloses it for a business purpose: (i) the categories of personal information collected about you, (ii) the categories of personal information about you that has been sold and the categories of the third parties to whom it was sold, and (iii) the categories of your personal information that we have disclosed for a business purpose.

3. Rights To Personal Information Collected For Direct Marketing Purposes.

PerimeterX does not share Personal Information with third parties for their own marketing purposes. California residents that we have established a business relationship with have a right to receive from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their Personal Information (if any) in the prior calendar year if we have reason to know that your personal information will be used for their direct marketing purposes and the categories of personal information disclosed to those parties.

4. Right To Request Data Deletion.

Subject to certain exceptions, the CCPA provides consumers with the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained. Once we receive a verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

The CCPA permits us to deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

  • Complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you;
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  • Debug services or solutions to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law;
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.);
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the deletion of information is likely render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the research, if you previously provided informed consent;
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us;
  • Comply with a legal obligation;
  • Use your personal information internally that is compatible with the context in which you provided it; or

5. Exercising CCPA Access, Data Portability, And Deletion Rights

  • Sending an email to:
  • Mailing a written request to:

PerimeterX Attn: Privacy 400 S. El Camino Real, 14th Fl. San Mateo, CA 94402

  • By calling 650.620.7800 and asking for the privacy department.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability two times within a twelve-month period. You or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive or manifestly unfounded.  If we determine that the request warrants a charge, then we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or a proper authorized representative, as well as to associate the information collected by us with the consumer. We cannot respond to your request if we are unable to confirm that the personal information we collected relates to you.
  • Sufficiently provide the detail that allows us to properly understand the request, evaluate, and respond to it.

We will use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request for the sole purpose to verify your identity or authority to make the request.

6. Timing Of The Response To Your Requests.

We try to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt.  If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period (up to 90 days) in writing.  Unless otherwise required by law, our response will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt.  Our response will explain the reasons if we cannot comply with a request.  For data access requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable that allows you to transmit the information to another entity without hindrance.

7. Non-Discrimination.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights, including but not limited to (a) denying goods or service, (b) charging different prices for services, (c) providing a different level or quality of services, or (d) suggest that you may receive a different price, level or quality of services.
