Imperva Servers

Imperva maintains a number of websites globally. Information volunteered or collected on Imperva websites may be delivered or transferred electronically to our servers in another country. We protect your personally identifiable information by following the procedures outlined in the “How we protect your information — Security” section of this privacy policy.

Resellers and Partners

We may also share personally identifiable information with business partners, authorized third-party agents, contractors, distributors and resellers for the purposes described in this privacy policy. Additionally, if you purchase a product through a partner, distributor, or reseller, that party may provide you with information about related products and services that may be of interest to you, in accordance with that partner, distributor, or reseller’s privacy notice.

Service Providers

We may engage business partners, service vendors, authorized third-party agents, or contractors who may utilize your personally identifiable information on our behalf for the purposes described in this privacy policy. We will share your personally identifiable information with these third parties, but only pursuant to binding contractual obligations requiring these third parties to maintain the confidentiality of your data. We maintain a Subprocessor List of the third party service providers whose infrastructure we use to deliver portions of the Imperva Incapsula services.

Interest-based advertising

The information you provide to us about your interest in our products may be pseudonymized and shared with third parties, where allowable, to provide more relevant advertising of Imperva products and services. If you receive Imperva advertising on a third party website and you click on our product or service advertising, we will know the domain you come from. We do not track your other activities on that website.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement

Imperva cooperates with governments, regulators, and law enforcement officials 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 and court orders); 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

Imperva may decide to sell, merge or otherwise reorganize its businesses. Such transactions may involve, in accordance with applicable law, the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers. In those cases, Imperva seeks and obtains appropriate protection for personal information. For example, an acquiring company may use personal information originally shared with the acquired company for the originally disclosed purposes, such as to provide the contracted service.

How we protect your information


Imperva works hard to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. We employ security measures to protect your information from unauthorized access. Those measures include:

  • the use of endpoint protection software, encryption, and monitoring of our systems and data centers to ensure that they comply with our security policies,
  • controlled access to our facilities and secure destruction of media containing your information, and
  • training and awareness programs on security and privacy to ensure employees understand the importance of and how to protect your information.

Additionally, all our employees have agreed to observe your privacy and confidentiality rights.

Data Retention

Personal data will be maintained only as necessary to satisfy the reasons for which it was collected. We also retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.


Like many websites, we also use “cookies” and similar technology to, for example, collect additional website usage data and to improve our websites and service. Some cookies may collect personal data in order to perform their intended functions. For example, in order to enable live chat assistance across multiple Imperva pages, a cookie may collect and store your name and chat history for the session. Imperva may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our websites and our service, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our websites, and to improve our websites and services. Authorized third parties may also place their own cookies on our websites, and may collect personal information. For more information about how we use cookies and the cookies you are consenting to use by visiting our website, review our Cookie Policy.

Our Policy Towards Children

Imperva’s business is not focused on, nor do we knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, he or she should contact us at privacy@imperva.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will remove that information.
