  1. Introduction & What This Statement Covers

We at SecureAuth Corporation (“SecureAuth”, “we”, “us”, “our”) care about protecting personal data. This Data Privacy Framework Statement (the “Statement”) tells you how we process the personal data we process on behalf of our customers while providing, implementing, and supporting our services.

Our services include identity and access management solutions (such as SecureAuth IdP or Arculix by SecureAuth), the provision of our consulting services, customer support (via Zendesk and Jira), and other systems that we use to assist our customers, (collectively, the “Services”).

This Statement also describes how we handle personal data through the services available through these subdomains:,,,,, and

This Statement does not apply to personal data we collect by other means, such as personal data that we receive directly through our marketing website(s) or the personal data of our employees.

Our customers use our platform to process their own employees’, customers’, and vendors’ personal data. In that case, we act only as a service provider. In general, we only access such personal data if required by law, or if the customer asks us to in connection with customer support or account administration matters in relation to the Services.

  1. Our Role with Respect to Personal Data

SecureAuth acts as an agent, also known as a data processor, for the personal data we process for our customers while providing our Services. This means that the organization that entered into the contract governing use of the Services (the “Customer Agreement”) (our “Customer”) chooses the type of personal data they give us to process on their behalf. This organization may be your employer or someone else. We usually do not have a direct relationship with the people whose personal data we get from our Customers.

  1. Why We Process Personal Data

We process personal data according to the instructions of our Customers.

  1. How We Obtain Personal Data

We receive personal data:

  • From our Customer and its representatives while providing the Services.
  • From providers of third-party services that integrate with our Services
  • When the information is submitted to our websites.
  • When you participate in a focus group, contest, activity, or event, apply for a job, ask for support, interact with our social media, or otherwise communicate with us.
  1. What Personal Data We Process

We process the following types of personal data:

  • Biographical information: name.
  • Professional information: company/employer.
  • Contact information: email and phone number.
  • Account information: username, user ID, and password.
  • Usage information: Services metadata, log data, messages, and the date and time the Services are used.
  • Device information: device type, unique device identifier, operating system, settings, application ID, crash data, browser type and settings, and host address.
  • Location information: location from IP addresses.
  • Cookie information and similar tracking information.

  1. How Long We Keep Personal Data

We keep personal data for as long as instructed as our Customer tells us to. We delete the personal data that our Customers give us within six (6) months after our agreement with the Customer ends.

We will not delete this personal data within the six-month period if the law says we have to keep it, the Customer asks us to keep it longer, or the information cannot be traced back to a specific person anymore and it is considered fully anonymized and consequently is no longer considered personal data.

As required by law, SecureAuth remains liable under the EU-U.S. DPF, the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, and/or the Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles if its agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the EU-U.S. DPF, the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, and/or the Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles, unless another party is responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

  1. Cookies

Cookies are small files that are stored on your device and contain information about your device.

Persistent cookies stay on your device even after you close your browser, but they have an expiration date. Most of the cookies that our Services and websites place on your device are first-party cookies, which means that they are placed directly by us. Other parties, such as Google, may also place their own cookies through our Services. You can read the policies of these third parties to learn more about the way in which they collect and process information about you.

You can change your browser settings to reject all or some cookies if you prefer not to accept them. However, this may limit the features of the Services you can use. You can learn more about cookies and how to manage them by visiting

  1. Data Integrity & Security

We have implemented and will maintain reasonably designed technical, administrative, and physical measures to protect personal information from unauthorized access, alteration, destruction, use, or disclosure.

12DPF Statement. Your Privacy Rights

Upon written request to SecureAuth, SecureAuth will provide individuals from the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland with reasonable access to personal information that SecureAuth holds about them, and will allow them to correct, amend, or delete such information if it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of the Data Privacy Framework Principles, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy in the particular case, or where the rights of other individuals would be violated.

SecureAuth also enables individuals to opt out of the disclosure of their personal information to third parties or its use for purposes materially different from those for which it was originally collected or subsequently consented by the individuals, in compliance with the Data Privacy Framework Principles.

When SecureAuth obtains Personal Data in its role as a Processor for its Customers, SecureAuth’s Customers are responsible for providing individuals with access to the Personal Data and the right to correct, amend or delete the information where it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of the Data Privacy Framework Principles, as appropriate. In such circumstances, individuals should direct their questions to the appropriate SecureAuth Customer. When an individual is unable to contact the appropriate Customer, or does not obtain a response from the Customer, SecureAuth will provide reasonable assistance in forwarding the Consumer’s request to the Customer.13.
