We at Tanium are committed to respecting your privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any information you share with us. This policy describes the overall privacy practices of Tanium regarding information we collect from you, including through our network of web sites and other advertising mediums, including but not limited to email, newsletters, conference sign ups and leave-behinds. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Tanium does not own or control, or to people that Tanium does not employ.


Tanium collects various types of information from you to better meet your needs and to provide you with a more relevant user experience. Some of this information is collected automatically through cookies (a small text file placed on your computer) or other Internet tracking technologies.

The type of information your browser or Internet session may automatically provide us with can include the browser you are using, your Internet domain, the operating system on your computer, your IP address and the URL you saw just before coming to the Tanium site, the pages of the site you visited and the URL of the page you visited upon leaving the site. We use different types of cookies on our website for different purposes:

Essential cookies enable you to navigate through and use various features provided by our website. Functionality cookies allow us to remember you have visited the website before. Performance and Analytical cookies help make sure the website can function to cope with number of visitors to our website, where you have come to the website from and how long you spend on the website. Retargeting and advertising cookies collect information about the pages you visit and also other information about other websites you visit, which enables you to be placed in a “market segment”. This information is collected by reference to the cookie or other identifier. Please see further information set out below. As well as serving our own cookies on the website, Tanium may also contract with reputable third parties to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may use cookies or other technologies (such as a 1×1 pixel .gif file, also known as a web beacon), to tailor advertisements you see on the site and third party websites, to track your response to advertisements, report on visitor interaction and to measure the effectiveness of advertisements.

For example, we use web site analytics tool Google Analytics to collect information about use of our web sites. These tools collect information such as how often users visit our web site, what web sites are viewed, and what other web sites were viewed prior to coming to our web site. These tools collect only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit our web site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We use the information we get from these tools to improve our web site. Although these tools plant a permanent cookie on your Web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our web site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but the provider of the applicable tool (e.g. Google, respectively). Use and sharing of information collected by Google Analytics are restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.

From time to time we may also share your information with third parties who perform certain functions on our behalf and who provide services to us. These parties only have access to the information they need to perform their functions and we require them to use the information only in connection with the services they provide for us. For example, these services may include fulfilling requests for information, receiving and sending communications, updating marketing lists, analyzing data, providing IT and other support services or other similar tasks, from time to time. Types of companies who may provide such services include IT suppliers, service providers, and other professional advisors. Tanium may disclose your information to any of our affiliates consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Tanium may share your information as necessary to comply with a court order or to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials. Tanium may also share your information if we believe that such action is necessary to prevent fraud or cyber crime or to protect the website or the rights, property or personal safety of any person.

If we undergo re-organization or are sold to a third party, any personal information we hold about you may be transferred to that re-organized entity or third party.


This Privacy Policy only applies to Tanium’s activities. Any information you submit to any third-party web sites is not in our control or governed by this Privacy Policy.

To have your personal information completely removed from our databases, simply contact us at [email protected] and provide the name of the service for which information was provided, your full name, mailing address, phone number and email address so that we may identify you in the opt-out process. Once we receive your instruction, we will promptly take corrective action. Note, however, that after information posted on web sites is removed, third party caching and archiving services may have saved that information, and other users or third parties may have copied or stored the information available on the web sites.


To the extent that you do provide us with personally identifiable information, Tanium wishes to maintain the accuracy of this information. Where we collect personally identifiable information from you, our goal is to provide a means of contacting Tanium should you need to update or correct that information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your personally identifiable information to [email protected] and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in the information that we hold as soon as practicable.

The then-current Privacy Policy will apply to all use of information by Tanium after the effective date. If we change this Privacy Policy in a manner that is materially less restrictive of our use or disclosure of your personal information, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you of the change and to obtain your consent prior to applying the change to any personal information that we collected from you prior to the date the change becomes effective.
