Musarubra US LLC and our affiliates (collectively "Trellix,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) disclose in this Notice how we collect personal information via this website and other sites and mobile applications that link to this Notice (“Site”). This Notice does not apply to other data collection and processing activities, including data we collect offline or that we process for our corporate and institutional customers which use our products and services, and other offerings (collectively “Products and Services”).
This Notice describes how we process, use, and share your personal information we collect through our Site and is intended to help you understand and exercise your privacy rights.
Important Note: Certain Trellix Sites and Products and Services may have their own privacy documentation describing how we handle personal information for those Products and Services specifically. To the extent a specific notice for a Product or Service differs from this Privacy Notice, the specific notice will take precedence. If there is a difference in translated, non-English versions of this Privacy Notice, the U.S.-English version will take precedence.
When we provide our Products and Services to organizations who are our customers (“Customers”), we process personal information on their behalf (“Customer Data”). In that situation, our Customers’ respective privacy policies govern their collection and use of Customer Data. Our processing of Customer Data is governed by our agreements with the Customer, not by this Notice. If you are an individual who interacts with the Products and Services through your relationship to a Customer (for example, if you are an employee of a company that is our Customer), please contact the Customer directly for more information about how your information is processed, including to understand any rights and choices you may have.
We may update this Notice from time to time in our sole discretion. If we modify our Notice, we will post the revised version here with an updated revision date. If we make material changes to our Notice, we may also notify you as required by applicable law. By continuing to use our Products and Services after the new Notice takes effect, you understand and agree that you will be deemed to have accepted the revisions and to abide by them.
If you have any questions or concerns about our processing of your personal information, you may contact us as set forth in “Contact Us” below.
