This Website Privacy Statement (“Privacy Statement”) describes the types of personal data we collect when you access our websites and browser-based portals that link to this Privacy Statement (the "Websites"), our practices for collecting, using, and sharing such personal data, and your rights with respect to such personal data. We strongly encourage you to read this Privacy Statement in its entirety.

Please note that this Privacy Statement does not apply to personal data collected by Entrust via Entrust’s other business products and services, in which case Entrust typically acts as a service provider to our business clients (please see the section below titled “Entrust as a Service Provider” for additional information), and does not apply to personal data collected by Entrust (i) via Entrust’s mobile applications, (ii) in its role as an employer or prospective employer, or (iii) through other means, e.g., information we collect when you interact with us at industry conferences or via phone or email, or information we collect from third parties, which, in each case, Entrust’s data collection and processing practices are governed by separate privacy statements.

By continuing to use the Websites, you have accepted this Privacy Statement in its entirety and without modification and agreed to our collection, use, and sharing of your personal data, as described in this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree with this Privacy Statement, please do not use the Websites.

We may revise this Privacy Statement periodically and will post any changes to the Websites. Changes to this Privacy Statement are effective at the time they are posted, and your continued use of the Websites after posting will constitute acceptance of, and agreement to be subject to, those changes. Please review this Privacy Statement from time to time to ensure you are aware of changes to this Privacy Statement.

Entrust as a Service Provider. In providing services to our business clients Entrust acts as a service provider (also known as a “data processor”). Our clients – many of which are financial, healthcare, educational, retail, or governmental institutions – use our products and services to help securely process data of their customers and employees.

Therefore, if you are using Entrust products or services as a customer or employee of an Entrust client, then any information collected in connection with such use will be processed and shared in accordance with that client’s privacy policies and practices and, to the extent applicable, our product-specific privacy notices in our capacity as such client’s service provider. If you have questions about the processing of your personal data by an Entrust client using an Entrust product or service, please contact that client directly.

What Personal Data Does Entrust Collect?

When we refer to personal data (or “personal information”) in this Privacy Statement, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or is linked or reasonably linkable to you, either alone or in combination with other information. More detail about the types of personal data Entrust collects is set forth below. References to “personal data” or “personal information” do not include aggregated and de-identified information.

Information you provide to us

When you visit our Websites, we collect information relating to the access, usage, and performance of our Websites, which is then stored in electronic records called logs. These logs may record online identifiers (e.g., usernames, unique device identifiers, or MAC addresses), IP addresses, the name and version of your operating system and browser, referring pages, the pages visited, dates and times of access, and information regarding errors and functionality.

We may also use cookies and similar technologies, and allow certain third parties to use cookies and similar technologies, to collect information related to your visit. This information typically includes your IP address, online identifier (e.g., username, unique device identifier, or MAC address), the identity of your Internet Service Provider, the name and version of your operating system and browser, information about your device type, the date and time of your visit, the pages you visit, the search terms you enter, and your preferences.

Information We Infer. We may combine the information you provide to us and information we collect about you. We may also draw inferences from such information (including, for example, non-precise geolocation data) in order to create a profile reflecting your characteristics, interests, and preferences. We will use the combined information and inferences for the purposes set out below (depending on the types of information we receive).

For What Purposes Do We Use The Information We Collect?

Where applicable law requires us to have a so-called “lawful basis” for processing personal data, we only process personal data where we have such a lawful basis to do so (e.g., necessary for the performance of a contract, to comply with a legal obligation, to pursue our legitimate interests or where we have consent).

We collect and process personal data for various purposes, including:

  • To set up and maintain your Entrust user account and validate your license to access our Websites, online products and services;
  • To verify your information and to process and complete online transactions and send related communications and information, including transaction confirmations and invoices (we use your financial account or credit or debit card information only for the purpose of processing your purchase);
  • To provide, maintain, or troubleshoot access to our Websites;
  • To monitor, evaluate, and improve the content, functionality and usability of our Websites (e.g., debugging, measuring website traffic, etc.);

  • To communicate with you, including to respond to your inquiries, to provide you with effective customer service, and to invite you to participate in surveys and provide feedback to us;
  • To conduct internal research and development;
  • To comply with applicable laws or regulations;
  • For advertising and marketing purposes, including to contact you with personalized offers and other information we believe may be of interest to you;
  • To deliver relevant advertising to you, and to audit, measure, and understand the effectiveness of advertising we serve to you and others;
  • To ensure that content from our Websites is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your device.

We may aggregate or de-identify personal data collected via the Websites so that such information can no longer be linked to you or your device. We may use aggregated or deidentified information for any purpose, in our discretion.

Does Entrust Share And Disclose Personal Data?

We may share and disclose your personal data in certain circumstances, including:

  • We may disclose or transfer your personal data to Entrust subsidiaries or affiliates.

Examples of third-party service providers (also known as “data processors”) include payment processing providers, credit reference agencies, website analytics and advertising companies, and service providers who operate, maintain and support our websites, products and services.
  • We may disclose personal data to protect, enforce or defend our rights or those of others, or where we believe the disclosure is required by law.
  • We may disclose personal data to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft, or to protect the security of our Websites, products and services.

We may also share aggregated or de-identified information with third parties, in our discretion.

Digital Advertising And Analytics

We may partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on behalf of us and others on non-affiliated platforms. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your use of our Websites and other websites or apps over time, often through the use of cookies or similar technologies, including information about relationships among different browsers and devices. This type of advertising is known as targeted advertising (also referred to as “cross-context behavioral advertising”).

We may also work with third parties that collect data using cookies and similar technologies about your use of our Websites and other sites or apps over time for nonadvertising purposes. Entrust uses Google Analytics and other third-party services to improve the performance of the Websites and for analytics or marketing purposes. For more information about how Google Analytics collects and uses data when you use the website, visit, and to opt out of Google Analytics, visit

If you would like to opt out of Entrust’s targeted advertising or analytics cookies, please visit our Cookie Policy and click on the “Cookie Settings” button. From there, you have the ability to adjust your cookie settings so that only strictly necessary cookies are activated.

How Long Do We Retain Personal Data?

We only retain personal data for as long as reasonably necessary for the purpose in which it was collected. For example, where your personal data is needed to provide you with access to our websites, online products or services, we retain your personal data for the period in which we are providing that access unless we are required by law to dispose of it earlier or to keep it longer. We also retain personal data as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, pursue legitimate business interests, conduct audits, and protect or enforce our rights.

Protecting Your Personal Data

We use reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. These security measures are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal data.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You should not share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Websites or stored in our databases. Your transmissions are, therefore, at your own risk.

International Data Transfers

The personal data that we collect from you may be transferred to and/or stored at a destination on our servers or our third-party servers that is different from the location where it was collected. It may also be processed by staff who work for us or for one of our service providers in a location different from where the data was collected. We will only transfer your personal data as permitted by law. Certain privacy and data protection laws require data controllers to put in place safeguards to protect personal data transferred across borders. For more information about Entrust’s compliance with data protection laws governing cross-border transfers of personal data, please review our Data Privacy FAQ page available here.

Who is the Data Controller?

The data controller of the personal data we collect via the Websites is Entrust Corporation. For more information about when Entrust is the “data processor,” please see the section titled "Entrust as a Service Provider” above.
