For instance, we receive information about contacts of potential customers through other sites that distribute our content or webinars, from data analytics and marketing services like Dun & Bradstreet and through refer-a-friend tools made available on our Services.

ADVERTISING AND ANALYTICS SERVICES PROVIDED BY OTHERS
Various browsers allow a “do not track” (DNT) setting that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to websites visited by the individual about the individual’s browser DNT setting. At this time, there is no general agreement on how companies like Sumo Logic should interpret DNT signals. Therefore, Sumo Logic does not currently commit to respond to DNT signals, whether that signal is received on a computer or on a mobile device.
You may update certain account information you provide via our Services (such as your name and email address) by logging into your account, but note that we retain certain information when required or permitted by law.
You may opt out of receiving promotional emails or text messages from Sumo Logic by following the instructions in those emails or text messages. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as those about your account or our ongoing business relations.

Privacy Shield Notice
References to “we” or “us” in the following paragraph refer only to Sumo Logic Inc. We adhere to the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework Principles issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce (the “Principles”) in connection with our transfer of personal data to the United States that relates to individuals in the EEA, UK and Switzerland (“Covered Data”). We are committed to subjecting all personal data including Covered Data received from the EEA, UK and Switzerland in reliance on the Privacy Shield Framework and the Principles. For more information about the Principles and to view our certification, please visit the Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield List at www.privacyshield.gov/list. You may contact us about any question or complaint regarding our adherence to the Principles as indicated in the ‘Contact Us’ section above. If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request. Under certain conditions specified by the Principles, you may also be able to invoke binding arbitration to resolve your complaint. We are subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission. If we share Covered Data with a third-party service provider that processes the data solely on our behalf, then we will be liable for that party’s processing of Covered Data in violation of the Principles, unless we can prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
