As professionals in the cybersecurity industry, your privacy is of paramount importance to us. Secure Yeti abides by these fundamental principles:
Secure Yeti, LLC. (“Secure Yeti”, “we”, “our”) operates secureyeti.com. It is Secure Yeti’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website, products and services (“Services”).
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our own products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
If you have questions about deleting, correcting your personal data, or limiting collection or use, please contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the course of marketing our Services, we will collect information on customers or potential customers in the course of doing business. This may include names, job titles and roles, current employers, employer’s address, as well as contact information such as email addresses or phone numbers. For example, if you reach out to us through our contact page, we will collect your name and email address and/or phone number.
Like most website operators, Secure Yeti collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Secure Yeti’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Secure Yeti’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Secure Yeti may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Secure Yeti also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. Secure Yeti only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog.
While this is not common, there may be circumstances where we would have to retain evidence that would contain personally-identifying information from our customers in the course of delivering our Services. An example of this is when we have to respond to an incident or collect evidence of adhering to a compliance or regulatory standard.
Secure Yeti may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Secure Yeti may monitor common landing pages or pages related to our services to ensure good customer engagement. Secure Yeti may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Secure Yeti does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Secure Yeti discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Secure Yeti’s behalf or to provide services available at Secure Yeti’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. For example, evidence containing personally-identifying information may be collected to provide expert advice around the scope of services for a customer.
Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Secure Yeti’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Secure Yeti will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Secure Yeti discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Secure Yeti believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Secure Yeti, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of an Secure Yeti website and have supplied your email address, Secure Yeti may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Secure Yeti and our services. We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
Rights to Access, Correct, or Delete Your Information, and Closing Your Account
You have a right to (1) access, modify, correct, or delete your personal information controlled by Secure Yeti regarding your profile, (2) change or remove your content, (3) limit the use and disclosure of your information, and (4) close your account. You can request your personal information that is not viewable on your profile or readily accessible to you (for example, your IP access logs) by emailing us at email@example.com. If you close your account(s), your information will generally be removed from the Service within one (1) week. We generally delete closed account information and will de-personalize any logs or other backup information through the deletion process within thirty (30) days of account closure, except as noted below.
If Secure Yeti, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Secure Yeti goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Secure Yeti may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Secure Yeti is committed to the security of your information, and has in place physical, administrative and technical measures designed to prevent unauthorized access to that information. Secure Yeti security policies cover the management of security for both its internal operations as well as the services. These policies, which are aligned with the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard, govern all areas of security applicable to services and apply to all Secure Yeti employees.
Secure Yeti is also committed to reducing risks of human error, theft, fraud, and misuse of Secure Yeti facilities. Secure Yeti’s efforts include making personnel aware of security policies and training employees to implement security policies. Secure Yeti employees are required to maintain the confidentiality of services data. Employees’ obligations include written confidentiality agreements, regular training on information protection, and compliance with company policies concerning protection of confidential information.
Secure Yeti promptly evaluates and responds to incidents that create suspicions of unauthorized handling of services data. Secure Yeti Management is informed of such incidents and, depending on the nature of the activity, define escalation paths and response teams to address the incidents. If Secure Yeti determines that your services data has been misappropriated (including by an Secure Yeti employee) or otherwise wrongly acquired by a third party, Secure Yeti will promptly report such misappropriation or acquisition to you.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our customers who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge. Under Section 1798.83, we currently do not share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
The California Consumer Privacy Act will give their citizens new rights on January 1, 2020. And though Secure Yeti does not meet the thresholds for applicability, Secure Yeti does uphold the principles of the act.
The nature of Secure Yeti’s business is to lawfully protect the data subject’s vital interests. The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) mentions IT security as a legitimate interest. Secure Yeti provides services that are designed to identify security issues. The information collected and generated by our services is often highly sensitive. Therefore to ensure the highest standards possible, Secure Yeti maintains GDPR compliance and EU Privacy Shield compliance with both internal business processes and with respect to the services we perform for clients.
