Global Privacy Policy

Effective Date: May 15, 2024


This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) applies to the personal data that Zscaler, Inc. and its affiliates  (“Zscaler”, “we”, “us” or “our”) process in relation to your interaction with our websites, events, and business promotion.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to situations where we act on behalf of our customers, generally in the role as “data processor” or “service provider”, as defined by applicable data protection laws, in relation to the data our customers submit, manage, use, or process through or as part of our services. For additional information about our data processing activities in our role as data processor or service provider, please see our Privacy Overview page.

What Personal Data We Collect

When we use the term “personal data” in this Privacy Policy, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to an individual. The term does not include aggregate or de-identified data that is maintained in a form that is not reasonably capable of being associated with or linked to an individual and does not apply to other information that is excluded from privacy protections under applicable data protection law.

We collect your personal data in three ways: (i) Personal Data You Provide, (ii) Automatically Collected Personal Data, and (iii) Personal Data from Third Parties. More detail is provided below.

Personal Data You Provide

We may collect other information to process your request properly, such as questions, comments, feedback or requests.

We regularly review our security measures to consider available new technologies and methods. If you have any questions about the security of your personal data, you can contact us.

We retain personal data for as long as necessary to provide our services and for the other purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We also retain personal data when necessary to comply with contractual and legal obligations, when we have a legitimate interest to do so (e.g., improving and developing our business, and enhancing its safety, security, and stability), and for the exercise or defense of legal claims.

The retention periods will be different depending on the type of personal data and the purposes for which we use the personal data. If you have any questions about the retention of your personal data, you can contact us.

International Data Transfers

The personal data we collect may be transferred to and stored in countries outside of the jurisdiction you are in to locations where we and our third-party service providers have operations.

In the event of a transfer, we ensure that the personal data is transferred to countries recognised as offering an adequate level of protection, or the transfer is made pursuant to appropriate safeguards, such as standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission. If you wish to inquire further about these safeguards used, please contact us.

Data Privacy Framework Statement

Zscaler complies with the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (EU-U.S. DPF), the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, and the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (Swiss-U.S. DPF), (collectively the “Data Privacy Framework” or “DPF”), as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce, regarding the transfers of non-HR personal data from the European Union, the United Kingdom (and Gibraltar), and Switzerland, in accordance with the transfer requirements under applicable data protection laws, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Zscaler has certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce that it adheres to the DPF Principles of notice, choice, accountability for onward transfer, security, data integrity and purpose limitation, access, and recourse, enforcement, and liability with respect to all personal data received from the EU, UK, or Switzerland in reliance on the DPF.

The U.S. subsidiaries of Zscaler that adhere to the DPF Principles are listed in our self-certification listing. Zscaler is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) with regard to its compliance with the DPF Program. If there is any conflict between the terms in this statement and the DPF Principles, the DPF Principles shall govern. To learn more about the DPF program, and to view our certification, please visit

Purposes of Data Processing: Zscaler may act as a data processor or a data controller when processing non-HR personal data transferred from the European Economic Area to the United States of America, depending on the product(s) or service(s) being provided. The types of non-HR data we collect and process varies depending on the business relationship, the product or service being provided, customers’ preferences, contractual requirements with customers, and the legitimate interests, including marketing, security, billing, transaction processing, product support, and relationship management.

• Notice: At the time of data collection, or as soon as practicable thereafter Zscaler notifies data subjects about its data practices regarding personal data.

• Choice: Zscaler offers individuals the opportunity to opt out of personal data, or opt in for sensitive data being: (i) disclosed to a third party (other than to Zscaler’s service providers under contract or pursuant to lawful request as set forth below), or (ii) used for a purpose materially different from the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you.

• Access: Individuals whose personal data may be processed by Zscaler are entitled to obtain confirmation of whether such personal data is being processed, access the information held, and ask us to correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of the laws. If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.

• Accountability for Onward Transfers (Transfer to Third Parties): When Zscaler transfers personal data to a third party, we take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure the third party processes personal data for limited and specified purposes and in a manner consistent with our DPF obligations. Where the transfer is to a third-party agent acting on our behalf, we may be liable if such third parties fail to meet those obligations.

• Security: Zscaler takes reasonable and appropriate measures to protect personal data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

• Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation: Zscaler will retain personal data for a reasonable period of time necessary to comply with applicable law, in accordance with our retention policies, and in a manner that is compatible with and relevant to the purposes for which it was collected or authorized by individuals.

• Lawful Requests: We may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. To learn more about how we handle requests from government agencies, regulatory bodies, and other law enforcement authorities, see our Transparency Report.

• Enforcement and Dispute Resolution: If you have a question or complaint related to Zscaler’s participation in the DPF, please contact the Privacy Team at [email protected]. Please note, to pursue your rights under the DPF, your complaint must concern personal data received from the EU, UK, or Switzerland in reliance on the DPF, which excludes any personal data transferred under the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs), any approved derogation from the EU Directive, or other non-DPF data transfer mechanisms.

Zscaler has further committed to refer unresolved DPF complaints to the International Centre for Dispute Resolution, which is the international division of the American Arbitration Association (“ICDR/AAA”), located in the United States. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, please contact or visit the ICDR/AAA at for more information or to file a complaint. The services of the ICDR/AAA are provided at no cost to you.

If neither Zscaler nor its dispute resolution provider is able to resolve your DPF complaint, you may be entitled, under certain conditions, to invoke binding arbitration through the Data Privacy Framework Panel. DPF-certified organizations must respond within 45 days of receiving a complaint.

Interest-Based Advertising

We may partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on behalf of us and others on non-affiliated platforms. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your use of the Website and other sites or apps over time, including information about relationships among different browsers and devices. This type of advertising is known as Interest-Based Advertising (“IBA”). We adhere to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles in connection with this activity.

We use data collected from non-affiliated websites over time as well as other data described in this Policy to provide advertising on behalf of our clients that is relevant to interests inferred from this data. We may also partner with other ad companies to extend our audiences across different browsers for interest-based advertising purposes. If you would like to exercise choice regarding our collection of web viewing data from web browsers for interest-based advertising purposes please visit and select “opt out of all”, or if located in the European Union you can click here to make choices with respect to companies integrated in the YourOnlineChoices consumer choice platform.

When you make your choices on your browser using these choice tools, we will stop collecting and using data from that browser and associated browsers for interest-based advertising on it. We will also stop using data collected from that browser on other browsers associated with it, and will stop using data collected from those associated browsers for interest-based advertising on the opted-out browser. Note that electing to opt out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. In addition, note that if you use a different browser or erase cookies from your browser, you may need to renew your opt-out choice.

You may visit the DAA WebChoices tool at to learn more about IBA and how to opt out of this advertising on websites by companies participating in the DAA self-regulatory program.

Companies participating in the WebChoices tool may continue to collect data for non-IBA purposes such as for analytics and other non-IBA related ad operational purposes. Additionally, your browser may offer tools to limit the use of cookies or to delete cookies; however, if you use these tools, our Site may not function as intended.
