Transfer of Personal Data Outside of EEA+

Forescout and some of our affiliates and service providers are based in the United States. The transfer of your personal information to the United States is necessary for us to provide our sites and services as Forescout is located in the United States. If you do not wish to have your personal information transferred to the United States, do not initiate such transfers by using or submitting information through our sites. We rely on the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, the UK Extension of the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework for the transfer of personal information to the United States as described in the Forescout Privacy Statement. Where the Data Privacy Framework does not adequately cover the transfer of personal information, Forescout will continue to rely on the Standard Contractual Clauses to assure adequate protection of personal information. Forescout has undertaken a Transfer Impact Assessment to document compliance with EU Data Protection Regulations. Due to the limited nature of the personal information collected by Forescout, and our focus as a network security company providing our services mainly to other businesses, we are unlikely to be the focus of government surveillance regarding a specific individual.

We retain online account related personal information for as long as your account is active and if you have opted in to receive marketing communications. When we no longer need to retain your personal information, we will remove it from our systems and records and/or take steps to properly anonymize it so that you can no longer be identified from it, unless we need to keep your personal information to comply with legal or regulatory obligations, or to preserve evidence within the statutes of limitation.
