Personal Information is protected by firewalls and standard industry security measures. We may also transmit sensitive information and transactional data using secure socket layer (SSL) encryption.
The transmission of information through the Internet is not completely secure.

Once we have received your Personal Information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of the Website or our products and services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share the password with anyone.
Subject to the conditions set forth under applicable law, you have the right to request to access, review, correct, update, suppress, restrict or delete Personal Information that you have provided to us. You have the right to request an electronic copy of Personal Information for purposes of transmitting it to another company. You have the right to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling. You may submit such requests by sending an email to email@example.com. We will respond to your request in accordance with applicable law. In your request, you must advise what Personal Information you would like to access, review, correct, update, suppress, restrict or delete; or otherwise let us know what limitations you would like to put on our use of your Personal Information.
Please note that we may need to retain certain Personal Information for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete transactions that you began prior to requesting a change or deletion. In the event your Personal Information is processed on the basis of your consent, you may withdraw consent at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and specifying the details of your request. However, any withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing based on consent before it is withdrawn.

Alternatively, you can opt out of such communications at any time by contacting us by email at email@example.com.

Barracuda is an international business with multi-national operations, systems and processes. In this context, the Personal Information that Barracuda collects from you may be transferred to and stored in the United States or another location outside of the EEA or Switzerland, i.e., Australia, China, Hong-Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, and the UK.
With respect to Personal Information transferred outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or Switzerland, we will process Personal Information in accordance with applicable privacy laws by implementing appropriate safeguards.
While Barracuda remains self-certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, it is not currently relying on these frameworks for the transfers of Personal Information. Indeed, we rely on Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCC”) as adopted by the European Commission, a copy of which may be requested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For additional Information on U.S. Privacy Safeguards Relevant to SCCs and other EU Legal Bases for EU-U.S. Data Transfers after Schrems II, please click here for the White Paper jointly issued on September 2020 by the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).7.1 Privacy Shield.
As noted above, Barracuda remains self-certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, and as such has taken on the additional obligations and liabilities set forth in this section.7.2 Our Obligations to You Under the Privacy Shield.
Barracuda may be liable in cases of onward transfer of EU and Swiss individuals’ data to third parties received pursuant to the Privacy Shield.7.4 Privacy Complaints, Recourse, Enforcement and Liability.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Barracuda commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your Personal Information without charge to you.
Barracuda has committed to refer all unresolved privacy complaints to JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider based in the US. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit https://www.jamsadr.com or https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided to you at no cost.
Please note that if your complaint is not resolved through the above mechanism, in certain limited circumstances you may be able to invoke a binding arbitration proceeding before the Privacy Shield Panel if Barracuda has failed to meet its obligations to you under the Privacy Shield and that failure has still not been remedied. Additional information about invoking binding arbitration is available online at the following link: https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction.
