In some circumstances applicable law may provide consumers a right to request a report regarding SurfWatch Labs's disclosures of Personal Data about himself or herself, and SurfWatch Labs will always undertake to provide such information as required by applicable law.

SurfWatch Labs will endeavor to respond to such requests within a reasonable time by providing a report that includes the information required by applicable law. Please be advised that, SurfWatch Labs is not required to respond to requests from any individual resident under the Shine the Light Law more frequently than once per calendar year.

SurfWatch Labs uses the Google Visualization API to generate the charts in the analysis interface. No customer data is passed to Google to generate the charts in the client browser. However, when we from time to time export the graph to Excel or PDF, your aggregated data must be sent to Google in order to generate the file. No detailed records are sent to Google, and only the data labels and numbers actually displayed on the exported graph are transmitted.
The SurfWatch Labs website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize SurfWatch Labs pages, or register with SurfWatch Labs site or services, a cookie helps SurfWatch Labs to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same SurfWatch Labs website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the SurfWatch Labs features that you customized.

Even after we remove Personal Data from the databases that we use in active operation of our business, some or all of that Personal Data may be retained in our inactive archival backups of those databases.
We exercise reasonable security measures consistent with industry standards to protect against unauthorized access to Personal Data stored in our databases, and to prevent unauthorized use, alteration, corruption or disclosure of that Personal Data. Personal Data stored in our possession is maintained behind firewalls, and our servers are located within facilities that are subject to physical security measures designed to prevent unauthorized access.
While we believe our policies and practices regarding information security and integrity are reasonable, we cannot guarantee that the security and/or integrity of Personal Data will not be breached or that such Personal Data will not be subject to unauthorized access, alteration, corruption or disclosure. We review our information security policies and practices periodically and may update them as we determine reasonably necessary to achieve information security and integrity consistent with industry standards.
