For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider, the IP address will be different every time you log on.

2. For What Purposes Do We Use Personal Data?
We use your information to operate, evaluate and improve our Site and business (including developing new products and services; enhancing and improving our services; managing our communications; and analyzing our products) and to communicate with you and respond to your requests. We also use personal data about A10 event attendees to plan and host corporate events, host online forums and social networks in which event attendees may participate.
We may also use any of your personal to exercise our legal rights, defend and advance our legal interests, comply with our legal obligations (such as under data protection laws), and protect against fraudulent, harmful and illegal activity. If we take steps to enter into a reorganization, restructuring, merger, acquisition, or whole or partial sale or transfer of our business or assets (“Business Transaction”), we may also use your personal data to give effect to that business transaction. We will only do so in compliance with applicable law.
3. To Whom Do We Disclose Personal Data?

A10 Networks employs administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. For example, when users login to our Site, our servers use SSL encryption on all information processed during the communication. You should be aware, however, that no transmission over the Internet, and no electronic data storage method is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of the personal data you provide to us either during its transmission or its storage on the servers we use for this Site.

We also retain personal data for as long as applicable laws require us to retain the personal data or for as long as it is relevant to the resolution of any legal claim that may or has been made by or against us and as per our general data retention policies. Where more than one of the above conditions applies to personal data, the condition associated with the longest retention period prevails. Please feel free to contact us as per the contact information below if you would like additional information on this topic.
6. Links to Other Sites
Our Site may contain links to other websites including those of our clients. If you choose to visit an advertiser by “clicking on” a link or other type of advertisement, you will be directed to that third party’s website. 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 data from you. This Privacy Statement addresses the use and disclosure of information that we collect or otherwise obtain from you through this Site. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal or other information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
Your Rights and Choices
Individuals in certain jurisdictions have legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them (including, in some cases, in portable form), and to obtain its source, correction, purpose of collection, update, amendment or deletion in appropriate circumstances. They may also object to our uses or disclosures of personal data, request a restriction on its processing, or withdraw any consent, though such actions typically will not have retroactive effect. They also will not affect our ability to continue processing data in lawful ways. To exercise any of the rights or choices described above (or any other rights under applicable law), please contact us as described at the end of this Privacy Statement.
To provide you with more interesting and customized information, promotions and advertising, we disclose personal data to third-party providers of advertising services who may use such personal data for their own purposes or to serve other customers, including to display our advertisements to you on sites and services that we do not operate. If you reside in certain states, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Virginia and Utah, you have or will soon have the right to opt-out of the use of your personal data for these targeted advertising or cross-context behavioral advertising purposes. To submit such a request, please click the following link: “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information // Your Opt-Out Rights”, in which case we will respond to your request in accordance with applicable law. Please note that we do not sell personal data in the sense of exchanging personal data for money. We disclose information about visitors of our website to advertising partners to provide website visitors with more interesting and customized information, promotions and advertising, which may be considered a “sale” under the CCPA.
The rights and options described above are subject to limitations and exceptions under applicable law. We will respond to your requests to exercise your privacy rights in accordance with applicable law. We may request additional information from you to verify your identity and complete your request. If we deny your request, we will explain why. In some states, you have the right to appeal our denial, which you may exercise by responding to the message we send to you communicating our denial stating that you appeal our decision. In these cases, we will reconsider your request and then notify you of our decision.
