For the purposes of this Privacy Statement, Personal Data is information, including Sensitive Data, that is: (i) about an identified or identifiable individual, (ii) received by us, and (iii) recorded in any form. Personal Data does not include anonymous or non-personal information (i.e., information that cannot be associated with or tracked back to a specific individual). “Sensitive Data” means Personal Data specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, sex life, the commission or alleged commission of any offense, any proceedings for any offense committed or alleged to have been committed by the individual or the disposal of such proceedings, or the sentence of any court in such proceedings.
2.1.2 What Personal Data Do We Collect?
We may collect and maintain Personal Data regarding Site Visitors and Customers and potentially their customers. We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of Personal Data about you which we have grouped together into the following categories:

We also collect, use and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data, but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your usage data with the data of other Site Visitors to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature.
2.1.3 For What Purposes Do We Collect Personal Data?
The Personal Data we collect is used and disclosed, as reasonably required for our business purposes, including complying with our contractual requirements, legal obligations, and for legitimate interests in marketing and product functionality purposes. Broadly speaking, legitimate interest means we use the personal information you provide to us for our legitimate business interests to send you marketing communications or to gather information about how you use our website. Before doing this, though, we will also carefully consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights. How we collect your Personal Data and how we use it are described below:
- We may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Customers’ and Site Visitors’ use of the Tealium website and interaction with emails from Tealium.

We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website, analyze trends, track Site Visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying Site Visitor preferences.
- We use aggregated data as a statistical measure and not in a manner that would identify you personally. Aggregated data enables us to determine how often certain parts of our website or the Services are used so that we can improve them. We may make use of, or make such aggregated data available to, third parties, in any manner in our sole discretion. Tealium may engage third parties to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from Site Visitors.

Such Social Media may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on our website, and may set a cookie to enable the Social Media to function properly. You may be given the option by such Social Media to post information about your activities on our website to your profile page on the Social Media network in order to share with others within your network.

If you do not wish for your information to be shared in this manner, you may choose not to purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service.
- We may use a third-party service provider to manage credit card processing. This service provider is not permitted to store, retain, or use financial information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on our behalf.
- It may be necessary for us to disclose your Personal Data, either by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate. We may also disclose Personal Information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users.

Individuals have a right to choose whether their Personal Data may be disclosed to third-party controllers or used for a purpose that is materially different from the purposes for which the information was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. We do not typically collect Sensitive Data about you. If we were to collect Sensitive Data, to the extent required by the Privacy Shield Principles, Tealium will obtain your opt-in consent for certain uses and disclosures of Sensitive Data. You have a right to withdraw such consent at any time. If we decide to use Personal Data for a purpose other than those that are materially the same as those indicated in this Privacy Statement, individuals shall be offered the opportunity to opt-in to the use. We shall make reasonable efforts to accommodate individual privacy preferences.
Exceptions. We may disclose your Personal Data without offering an opportunity to opt out, when (i) we retain third-party processors to perform services on our behalf and pursuant to our instructions, (ii) required by law or legal process, or (iii) responding to lawful requests from public authorities, including to meet national security, public interest or law enforcement requirements. We may also transfer Personal Data in the event of an audit or if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a merger, acquisition, joint venture, reorganization, dissolution, or liquidation).
2.3 Accountability for Onward Transfer
We comply with the Privacy Principles for all onward transfers of Personal Information from the UK, the EU, and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.
We take reasonable and appropriate measures that are designed to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into account the nature of the Personal Data. Tealium has a SOC2 Type 2 audit, an ISO 27001 audit, and ISO 27018 audit performed regularly to independently assess and attest to the effectiveness of Tealium’s information security policies and practices.
2.5 Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
We limit the Personal Data we process to that which is relevant for the purposes of the particular processing. We do not process your Personal Data in ways that are inconsistent with the purposes for which the information was collected or subsequently authorized by you. In addition, to the extent necessary for these purposes, we take reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Data we process is (i) reliable for its intended use, and (ii) accurate, complete and current. In this regard, we rely on you to update and correct Personal Data to the extent necessary for the purposes for which the information was collected or subsequently authorized by you. You may contact us as indicated in the Subject Access procedure in section 2.10 below to request that we update or correct relevant Personal Data. If we need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Subject to applicable law, we retain Personal Data in a form that identifies or renders you identifiable only for as long as it serves a purpose that is compatible with the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected or subsequently authorized by you.
You have the right to access your Personal Data. Accordingly, where appropriate, we provide you with reasonable access to the Personal Data we maintain about you. We also provide you a reasonable opportunity to choose whether to receive offers and promotions from us and correct, amend, or delete your information.
We may limit or deny access to Personal Data where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than you would be violated. Other reasons for denying or limiting access include (i) interference with the execution or enforcement of the law or with private causes of action, including the prevention, investigation or detection of offenses or the right to a fair trial; (ii) disclosure where the legitimate rights or important interests of others would be violated; (iii) breaching a legal or other professional privilege or obligation; (iv) prejudicing employee security investigations or grievance proceedings or in connection with employee succession planning and corporate re-organizations; or (v) prejudicing the confidentiality necessary in monitoring, inspection or regulatory functions connected with sound management, or in future or ongoing negotiations involving the organization.
