Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy, your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Controlling Cookies via Third-Party Opt-in/Opt-out Websites

These sites enable you to manage opt-in and opt-out preferences for multiple cookies via a consolidated UI or individual "op-out" cookies. This is a convenient alternative to controlling cookies individually.

Controlling Cookies via the FireEye Cookie Preferences Control

FireEye provides a control that allows you to disable first-party cookies and Web beacon tracking on www.fireeye.com. The control has two settings:

  • ACCEPT: With this setting, all cookies and Web beacons are delivered normally.
  • DECLINE: With this setting, first-party cookies and Web beacons are not delivered from www.fireeye.com.

FireEye has multiple websites comprising its web presence, and the Cookie Preferences Control only affects first-party cookies and Web beacons sourced from www.fireeye.com.

  • When you transition to other sites, this privacy policy no longer applies, and the privacy policy of the other sites come into effect.
  • When browsing a site other than www.fireeye.com, FireEye recommends that you check the privacy policy local to that site to determine how it might affect you.

Note: The FireEye Cookie Preferences Control setting is specific to the web browser used to adjust the setting. If you browse the www.fireeye.com site using a different web browser application, or a different device, you will need to select your preferred setting again.

Data Storage and Security

Account Information

  • When you submit information to FireEye, a temporary copy of that information is routinely made to prevent accidental loss of your information through a computer malfunction or human error.
  • Please note that any information that we have copied may remain in back-up storage for some period of time after your deletion request. This may be the case even though no information about your account remains in our active user databases.

Servers

  • The FireEye computers (called "servers") that send your Web pages process and store an enormous amount of information every day. These computer records are called "log files."
  • Log files are used for analysis, research, auditing, and other purposes, as described above. After this information has been used, it is stored and is inaccessible. Until the information is stored, your FireEye ID may remain in our active server log files.

Security

  • Appropriate technical and physical safeguard measures are in place to protect against unauthorized or unlawful access, misuse, accidental loss, destruction and alternation of any Personal Information which are shared with us in the course of using our website services.

We will make all efforts to resolve your complaints timely and accurately. 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-from.truste.com/watchdog/request.
  • Further, FireEye has committed to cooperate with EU Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) and to comply with the information and advice provided to it by an informal panel of DPAs in relation to such unresolved complaints as determined by the Privacy Shield Principles.
  • Under certain conditions, EU individuals may seek redress from the Privacy Shield Panel, a binding arbitration mechanism. FireEye is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
