Imperva, Inc. ("Imperva," "we," "us" and "our") provides this Privacy Policy to inform users of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personally identifiable information received from users of our website located at http://www.imperva.com and the related websites at http://www.imperva.cn, http://www.imperva.jp and http://www.imperva.de (collectively, the "Corporate Sites"), as well as of the websites located at https://www.imperva.com/sign_in.asp (the "Support Site") and at ftp://ftp-us.imperva.com and ftp://ftp-eu.imperva.com ("Download Sites") (the Corporate Sites, the Support Site and the Download Sites are referred to as, collectively, the "Sites"). This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any material changes to our Privacy Policy. We suggest that you consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Continued use of the Sites after we have notified you any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.

By using our Sites you are consenting to our processing of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy now and as amended by us. "Processing" means using cookies on a computer or using or touching information in any way, including, but not limited to, collecting, storing, deleting, using, combining and disclosing information, all of which activities will take place in the United States. If you reside outside the United States, your personally identifiable information will be transferred to the United States, and processed and stored there under U.S. privacy standards. In addition, we may share your personal information with certain third parties, as explained below in "Information Sharing and Disclosure," and some of such third parties may be located outside the United States.

If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy or our use of your personally identifiable information, please contact us at support@imperva.com.

Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting personally identifiable information are to provide you with the services made available through the Sites, to communicate with you, and to manage your registered user account through which you can take advantage of the services made available through the Sites. For instance, we may use some of the information you provide to market specific products and services, including but not limited to customer support services. We will also use the information you provide to analyze and improve Imperva's products and services.

If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of the Sites, you may be required to become a registered user and to submit certain personally identifiable information to Imperva. This may happen in a number of instances, such as when you want to download our "white papers" from the Corporate Site, sign-up for our "webinars" or request a space in one of our training classes, or if you want to have access to the Support Sites or the Download Site. This may also happen in case you desire to receive certain information available in the Investors section of the Corporate Site, such as, for instance, when you sign up to download files available in such section, or to receive news feeds through our "RSS Feed Registration" service, or email alerts such as press releases, SEC filings or stock information, through our "Email Alert Subscription" service. Personally identifiable information that we may collect in such instances may include your user name, password, email address, telephone number, your company's name and your title. If you contact us by email through the Sites, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and may use your email address, and any information that you provide to us in your message, to respond to you. In addition, we may use the personal information described above to send you information regarding the Sites and/or our services. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such information or communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications.

When you visit the Sites, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, the web pages you visit and the search terms you use. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider, the IP address will be different every time you log on. Except in the instances described herein, we do not use this information to identify you personally. We use it to monitor use of the Sites and our service, and for the technical administration of the Sites.

Cookies
Like many websites, we also use "cookie" technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve the Sites and our service. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk. We do not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information. However, IP addresses are collected by the use of cookies. Imperva may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with the Sites and our service, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Sites, and to improve the Sites and our services. In addition, please be aware that other parties may also place their own cookies on the Sites, and may collect or solicit personal information from you. A session cookie enables certain features of the Sites and our service and is deleted from your computer when you disconnect from or leave the Sites. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Sites. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
General. Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, Imperva will not share your personally identifiable information with third parties.

Resellers and Partners. We will share your personally identifiable information with our resellers and partners, and such resellers and partners may use your information to market our products and services, as well as their own products and services.

Service Providers. We may engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance services, customer relationship services, and database storage and management services. We will share your personally identifiable information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to binding contractual obligations requiring such third parties to maintain the confidentiality of your data.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. Imperva cooperates with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including subpoenas); to protect the property and rights of Imperva or a third party, the safety of the public or any person; to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity; or to comply with the law.

Business Transfers. If any or all of the assets of Imperva are acquired by, or merged with another entity, we may share some or all of your information with this entity.

Security
Imperva is very concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.

We will disclose any breach of the security, confidentiality or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored personal data to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Sites in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and to restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

Links to Other Sites
Our Sites contain links to other websites. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. This Privacy Policy addresses the use and disclosure of information that we collect from you through the Sites. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

Our Policy Towards Children
The Sites are not directed to persons under 18. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child, who is under 13, has provided us with personally identifiable information without their consent, he or she should contact us at support@imperva.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will remove such information from our files.
