We may store your Personal Information for as long as such Personal Information is necessary in accordance with the purpose for which we collected it, and as long as necessary to fulfill your requests or inquiries or provide services or until we proactively delete it or you send a valid deletion request. In addition, in some circumstances we may store your Personal Information for longer periods of time, for example (i) where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax or accounting requirements, or (ii) for us to have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges, or (iii) if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation relating to your Personal Information or dealings. We have an internal data retention policy to ensure that we do not retain your Personal Data perpetually. Regarding retention of cookies, you can read more in our cookie policy [https://www.wiz.io/cookies-policy]. 

6) ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING TRANSFERS OF GDPR PROTECTED PERSONAL DATA

a. Internal transfers: Transfers within the Wiz group will be covered by an internal data processing agreement between entities of the Wiz group which contractually obliges each member to ensure that Personal Data receives an adequate and consistent level of protection wherever it is transferred to.

b. External transfers: When Wiz engages in transfers of GDPR protected Personal Data outside of the EEA (for example to third party service providers for the purposes listed above), we generally rely on either: (i) Adequacy Decisions adopted by the European Commission under Article 45 of the GDPR (for example, when our team accesses Personal Data from Israel); (ii) the Standard Contractual Clauses issued by the European Commission (as updated from time to time); or (iii) another lawful transfer mechanism provided for under the GDPR e.g. Binding Corporate Rules. Wiz also monitors the circumstances surrounding such transfers to ensure that Personal Data continues to be afforded a level of protection that is essentially equivalent to the one guaranteed by the GDPR.

7) YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS.

a. Rights: The following rights (which may be subject to certain exemptions or derogations) may apply to certain individuals (some of which only apply to individuals protected by the GDPR or other applicable data protection laws):

  • You have the right to object to profiling;
  • You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note that there may be circumstances in which we are entitled to continue processing your data, in particular if the processing is required to meet our legal and regulatory obligations. Also, please  note that the withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal;
  • You also have a right to request certain details of the basis on which your Personal Data is transferred outside the European Economic Area, but data transfer agreements and/or other details may need to be partially redacted for reasons of commercial confidentiality;

If you are an authorized agent making a request, we may require and request additional information to protect the Personal Data entrusted to Wiz, including information to verify that you are authorized to make that request. There may be situations where we cannot grant your request, for example, in the event that your request would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others (for example, would impact the duty of confidentiality we owe to others) or if we are legally entitled to deal with your request in a different way than initially requested, we will address your request to the maximum extent possible, all in accordance with applicable law.

d. We will not restrict or deny you access to our Services because of choices and requests you make in connection with your Personal Data. Please note, certain choices may affect our ability to deliver the Wiz Services. For example, if you sign up to receive marketing communications by email, then ask Wiz to delete all of your information, we will be unable to send you marketing communications. You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your Personal information by contacting us using the details provided under the “Contact Us” section below.
