Last Updated Date:


Arctic Wolf Networks, Inc. (“AWN,” “Arctic Wolf,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”) and its affiliates are committed to protecting the privacy of the information (“Customer Information” as defined below) provided by you and your authorized resources (“Users”, “you”, “your”) while using the Arctic Wolf Customer Portal (the “Customer Portal”) and the Arctic Wolf SOC-as-a-service or other products and services (collectively, “Solutions”). For purposes of clarity, MSP Partners (“MSP,” “MSPs”) using the Customer Portal and Solutions on behalf of its end-users are considered Users for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
This Privacy Policy describes the Customer Information (as defined below) we collect through the Solutions and Customer Portal and the manner in which the Customer Information is used to deliver and support the Solutions.

Terms of Use

If you have any dispute over the privacy of your information, the dispute is subject to this Privacy Policy and, as applicable, the Master Solutions Agreement or Master Partner Agreement made between us, including any provisions related to the limitation of liability and application of choice of law.


This Privacy Policy covers the Customer Information collected by us from Users of the Customer Portal and Solutions and the access to and submission of Customer Information for the purpose of:
  • Opening tickets
  • Adding comments to existing tickets
  • Adding attachment(s) to tickets
  • Being authenticated to use the Solutions
  • Uploading credentials for application event monitoring
  • Obtaining configuration information, reports, and metrics related to the operation of the Solutions within your environment

Customer Information

Each User is responsible for the quality, integrity, reliability, and appropriateness of Customer Information submitted in the Customer Portal and Solutions and must comply with terms contained in the applicable Arctic Wolf Master Solutions Agreement or, in the case of an MSP, by the terms of the applicable Arctic Wolf Master Partner Agreement. The information we may collect from you while using the Customer Portal and Solutions (the “Customer Information”) includes:

Customer Information Obtained via the Customer Portal

The types of Customer Information we collect about Users of the Customer Portal includes:

1) Corporate or Employee Information
Customer Portal Users experiencing issues relating to the Solutions may submit support tickets via the Customer Portal. In the course of your creation of support tickets and our provision of support services, you may provide corporate or employee information that assists us with the definition and resolution of issues.

2) Uploaded Credentials
Customer Portal Users may upload their credentials (such as names, email addresses, phone numbers, usernames, passwords, IP addresses, geolocation data, and device ID identifiers).

Customer Information Obtained via the Solutions

When using the Solutions, the Solutions may collect, and/or you may choose to submit to us, the following:

1) System Data
The Solutions, depending on their set up and deployment in your environment, may collect log data from various sources, including your:
  • data center,
  • applications,
  • infrastructure in the cloud,
  • on-premises infrastructure, and
  • remote endpoints.
In addition, the Solutions may perform inspection of network traffic, scan internal and external-facing devices, and collect configuration data, vulnerability data, system-level inventory, and event data.

2) Uploaded Credentials
Solutions Users may be required to upload their credentials (such as names, email addresses, phone numbers, usernames, passwords, IP addresses, geolocation data, and device ID identifiers).

How We Use the Information

We use Customer Information for the following purposes:

1) Support Ticket Management and Resolution
Support tickets are the primary medium that Users and the Concierge Security™ engineers (CSEs) use to communicate issues or requests over the use and improvement of the Solutions. Both parties can comment and provide more information in a support ticket until the issue/request is resolved. The CSEs use a ticketing system to communicate security alerts to Users allowing the Users to respond and see the status of the alert until it is closed.

2) Provision of the Solutions
System Data and uploaded credentials are integral to the functionality of our Solutions. This Information is used to provision the Solutions to you and to monitor and detect security and threat incidents within your network of connected applications and systems. Uploaded credentials can be viewed and managed by Users, including your MSP, and—to a limited extent—may be accessed and viewed by Arctic Wolf employees for support ticket issue resolution. Based on your environment and configuration, Users can upload credentials in the Solutions and/or Customer Portal to:
  • configure the Solutions, and to monitor cloud infrastructure resources to detect access and misuse of a User’s networks, resources, and application instances;
  • monitor SaaS applications to detect malicious activities and potential data exposures in cloud-based applications; and
  • monitor security events related to user single sign-on and malicious endpoint activity for security providers.
3) Communication With You
Arctic Wolf may use your Customer Information for business purposes of communicating with you about Solutions in which you may be interested, updating you about changes to our terms and conditions, sending you general information about Arctic Wolf and its business, or other similar types of business purposes.

4) Improve the Customer Portal and Solutions
Arctic Wolf may aggregate and anonymize your Customer Information to create our own intellectual property. Such aggregated/anonymized data is owned by us and may be used to improve the Solutions, as well as for any other business purpose.

How We May Share the Information

We do not share, distribute, use, disclose, review, transfer, or reference any Customer Information except as set forth herein, as expressly permitted in writing by the User, as needed by an MSP to perform services for its end users, or as required or permitted by law.

The security of Customer Information is important to us. We maintain appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to help protect the confidentiality and integrity of Customer Information, during transmission and once it is received. However, we cannot guarantee that hackers or unauthorized personnel will not gain access to Customer Information, despite our best efforts. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Customer Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Customer Portal Users are responsible for protecting themselves against unauthorized access to passwords, private keys and computers, and unauthorized disclosure, alteration, and destruction of Customer Information.
