Where does TPG get the Business Information for its Public Profiles?
TPG creates profiles of business people and companies, which we call "Public Profiles," from different sources. Once we have collected Business Information about a person or company, we combine multiple mentions of the same person or company into a Public Profile. The resulting directory of Public Profiles (the "Database") is then made available to the users of the Site and our customers and strategic partners.
TPG obtains the data for its Public Profiles in several ways including:
(1) Our search technology scans the web and gathers publicly-available Information.
(2) We license Information from other companies.
(3) Users contribute Business Information about themselves or other people and companies.
(4) Through market research surveys and phone interviews conducted by our in-house research team.
Customer Information Collected. TPG may collect the following information from or regarding its customers: (1) personal contact information regarding users of the Services (“User Information”); (2) information uploaded to our system by a user of the Services (“Uploaded Information”); and (3) usage logs regarding the use of the Site and Services, including logins and other actions taken, time stamps, IP address, and other usage data (“Usage Logs”) (collectively, “Customer Information”).
You may be a user that has been provided access to the Site through your company license agreement. Your employer may require that one or more users have global rights to access any and all information of every user that has access through the company. If you have questions or concerns regarding the rights of other individuals in your company to access your User Information, Uploaded Information, or Usage Logs, you should raise those concerns with the appropriate person at your company.
Use of Customer Information. Customer Information may be used for TPG’s legitimate business interests in connection with your use of the Site, including to respond to user inquiries and fulfill user requests, complete transactions, provide customer service, send administrative information, and to personalize user experience with the Site. We may use Customer Information to better understand our users in general and to improve the content and functionality of the Site. We may use Customer Information to contact you in the future to tell you about services, promotions, opportunities, and other general information about TPG we believe will be of interest to you. We may use Customer Information to investigate and prosecute potential breaches of TPG’s security or license agreements.
TPG will not disclose Customer Information to any third party except in connection with a legitimate use as set forth herein, in connection with a bona fide legal dispute to which such information is relevant, in response to valid, compulsory legal process, or as otherwise required by law. TPG will, whenever possible, obtain confidentiality agreements from any person or entity to whom Customer Information is disclosed and ensure any recipients are committed to employing appropriate technological security measures.
TPG employs reasonable security and back-up procedures to protect Customer Information. However, in the unlikely event there is a loss or corruption of Customer Information, TPG is not responsible or liable for such loss or corruption. We encourage our users to retain copies of all Uploaded Information on their own system.

TPG will use this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and will not store your friend’s name or email address.
When you purchase our products and Services. If you purchase one of our online subscription-based Services, you may need to provide credit card information. We will use that information solely for the purpose of fulfilling your TPG purchase request. We will process credit card information in an encrypted form and will not sell, share, or use it again without your prior consent. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information, and our employees and vendors are required to follow these privacy standards. (The only exceptions are described in the sections below on “Disclosures to Service Providers,” “Disclosures for Legal Reasons,” and “Disclosures to a Buyer of the Company”).
When you use TPG Integrations. As part of the Services, TPG may make available to its customers certain “Integrations.” In using TPG’s Integrations, such as TPG’s SFNA and web browser extensions, Business Information from customer’s CRM, MAT, or sales enablement software may be transmitted to TPG for purposes of matching or cleansing the customer’s data against TPG’s database as a feature of the Services. In that event, TPG may retain and store such Business Information for purposes of identifying potential contacts to supplement the Services, verifying the accuracy of such Business Information, removing out-of-date Business Information from the Services, or otherwise improving TPG’s research processes and the content provided through the Services. Information so received will not be attributable to the source. In the event that any customer wishes to opt out of TPG’s use of such information, they may do so by visiting the ‘Privacy Center’ within the TPG Salesforce Native Application and adjusting the appropriate controls.
When you connect the Services to your email or calendar. In order to provide certain Services, TPG may require access to your email account and/or calendar (e.g., through G-Suite or Office 365). Depending on the specific Services being used, we may collect email header information, email subjects, email bodies and attachments, and calendar meeting information such as meeting participants, meeting description, subject, and date and time of the meeting. Customers have control over what data is collected, including which mailboxes are connected, whether message attachments or content is collected, and which emails or email domains should not be collected. TPG’s access to and use of information received from Google Accounts will adhere to the Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements.

Information for Users in Europe & Elsewhere Outside the U.S.
If you use our Site outside of the United States, you understand that we may collect, process, and store your personal information in the United States and other countries in which we or our affiliates or subcontractors maintain facilities. The laws in the U.S. regarding personal information may be different from the laws of your state or country.
If you are a resident of the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland, the following information applies.
Purposes of processing and legal basis for processing: As explained above, we process personal information in various ways depending upon your use of our Sites. We process personal information on the following legal bases:
(1) with your consent; (2) as necessary to perform our agreement to provide Services; (3) as necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject; and (4) as necessary for our legitimate interests in providing the Sites where those interests do not override your fundamental rights and freedom related to data privacy.
TPG’s collection of Business Information, and the creation and licensing of TPG’s Business Profiles and Directory, are within TPG’s legitimate interests to organize and make available business contact information given the limited impact of this data on an individual’s private life and that this information, unlike personal contact details, is widely disclosed. TPG has put in place safeguards to protect personal privacy and individual choice, including disclosures of its data processing activities, the use of consent or opt-outs wherever possible, and the implementation of a privacy center.
Right to lodge a complaint: Users that reside in the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland have the right to lodge a complaint about our data collection and processing actions with the supervisory authority concerned. Contact details for data protection authorities are available here.
Transfers: Personal information we collect may be transferred to, and stored and processed in, the United States or any other country in which we or our affiliates or subcontractors maintain facilities. Per the applicable requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), we will ensure that transfers of personal information to a third country or an international organization are subject to appropriate safeguards as described in Article 46 of the GDPR, such as the EU Standard Contractual Clauses. Please see “Privacy Shield Frameworks” below regarding our compliance with the EU- and Swiss-US Privacy Shields.
Individual Rights: If you are a resident of the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland, you are entitled to the following rights under the GDPR. Please note: In order to verify your identity, we may require you to provide us with personal information prior to accessing any records containing information about you.

You have the right to restrict our processing if you contest the accuracy of the data we hold about you, for as long as it takes to verify its accuracy.
- The right to data portability. You have the right to ask for a copy of your data in a machine-readable format. You can also request that we transmit your data to another entity where technically feasible.
- The right to request data erasure. You have the right to have your data erased from our Site if the data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, you withdraw consent and no other legal basis for processing exists, or your fundamental rights to data privacy and protection outweigh our legitimate interest in continuing the processing.
- The right to object to our processing. You have the right to object to our processing if we are processing your data based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest as an exercise of official authority (including profiling); using your data for direct marketing (including profiling); or processing your data for purposes of scientific or historical research and statistics.
When TPG is a Controller. TPG acts as a data controller when we collect and use information about data subjects who are visitors to our Site, as well as when we collect and use information about data subjects for purposes of creating and maintaining our Business Profiles and providing the Services. TPG’s Legal Officer can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When TPG is a Processor. When our customers use our Services, they are acting as the data controller and are responsible for ensuring that personal information collected about data subjects is being processed lawfully. In those circumstances, we are acting as the data processor, and receive personal information as agents of our customers merely for processing as instructed by our customers. Our customers are solely responsible for determining whether and how they wish to use our Services, and for ensuring that all third-party individuals that are a visitor to or user of a website, application, or service on which a customer uses our Services have been provided with adequate notice regarding the processing of their personal information, have given informed consent where such consent is necessary or advised, and that all legal requirements applicable to the collection, use, or other processing of personal information through our Services have been met by such customers. Our customers are also responsible for handling data subject rights requests under appliable law, by their users and other individuals whose data they process through the Services. TPG’s obligations with respect to personal information for which we are solely a data processor are defined in our agreements with our customers and are not covered by this Policy.
The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) 2016/679
TPG endeavors to comply with the provisions of the GDPR as to any information in its possession regarding European Union-based persons (“data subjects”). As such, TPG only processes personal information on data subjects where it has a lawful basis to do so, which may include the consent of the person (especially in the case of website visitors who provide their information), performance of a contract, compliance with a legal obligation, or the legitimate interest of the controller or a third party. TPG provides notice to all data subjects as required by GDPR Article 13 or 14, as appropriate, and honors the rights of data subjects provided in Articles 12-23, including the right to be forgotten. For any opt-out requests or other inquiries related to privacy, please email email@example.com.
In the course of obtaining data to be included on the Site, if TPG obtains Business Information regarding an individual that TPG has reason to believe is based in the European Union, TPG will provide such individual with a notice detailing the information TPG has on such person, the purpose for which it will be used, and informing such person of their rights with respect to such information, including the right to know what information TPG possesses on them, to correct such information, or to opt out of data collection entirely. Such persons may opt out of the TPG database by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Privacy Shield Frameworks
While TPG continues to be certified by and adhere to the principles of the Privacy Shield Frameworks, in light of the Court of Justice of the European Union decision regarding the legal effect of the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, TPG does not rely upon the Frameworks to ensure the lawful transfer of data from EEA to non-EEA countries.
TPG complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States. TPG has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles. If there is any conflict between the policies in this Policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, any rights you may have to binding arbitration before a Privacy Shield Panel, and please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov.
For information received under the Privacy Shield, TPG will require third parties to whom we disclose personal information to safeguard that personal information consistent with this Policy by contract, obligating those third parties to provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles. EU and Swiss citizens may choose to opt-out of such disclosures. TPG may have liability to you in case of failure to comply with the law or this policy in handling onward transfer of your information to third parties.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, TPG commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and its collection or use of your personal information. European Union or Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding this Policy should first contact TPG at email@example.com. European Union and Swiss individuals have the right to access their personal information.
TPG further has committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Privacy Shield Principles to JAMS (Judicial Arbitration & Mediation Services), an independent alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States and recognized for this purpose by the US Department of Commerce. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield for more information, and to file a complaint.
The Federal Trade Commission has enforcement authority regarding TPG’s compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles.
California Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, California law permits you to request certain information regarding the disclosure of your personal information by us to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send your request, by email, to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your browser or device may include ‘Do Not Track’ functionality. Our information collection and disclosure practices, and the choices that we provide to visitors, will continue to operate as described in this Policy, whether or not a Do Not Track signal is received.
Our Site is not directed to or intended for individuals under the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect or use any personal information from users of our Site who are under the age of 16.

Disclosure and Sale of Personal Information and the Right to Opt-Out

A consumer has the right to opt-out of the sale of that consumer’s personal information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and submitting a request to remove the consumer’s profile or delete the consumer’s data. In order to submit a request, a consumer or an authorized agent will be required to demonstrate that such person has control of an email inbox associated with the profile in question. If such person cannot, then we may be contacted regarding other means of verifying such person’s identity or the authorization of a third party to exercise a consumer’s rights on that consumer’s behalf.
In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have sold or disclosed for a business purpose the following categories of personal information to TPG customers, partners, affiliates, or service providers:
- Personal information categories listed in the California Customer Records statute
- Professional or employment-related information
For avoidance of doubt, the personal information disclosed and/or sold by TPG within the identified categories is limited to business contact information related to a consumer’s profile as an employee of its employer. No sensitive personal information (i.e., Social Security number, passport number, medical or financial information) is collected, shared, disclosed, or sold by TPG.
We do not sell the personal information of minors under 16 years of age.
A Consumer’s Other CCPA Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes a consumer’s CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
A consumer has the right to request that we disclose certain information to that consumer about TPG’s collection and use of that consumer’s personal information over the past twelve (12) months. Once we receive and confirm a consumer’s verifiable consumer request, we will disclose:
- The categories of personal information we collected about that consumer.
- The categories of sources from which the personal information was collected.
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
- The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about that consumer (also called a data portability request).
Deletion Request Rights
A consumer has the right to request that TPG delete any of his or her personal information that we have collected and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm a consumer’s verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers and/or customers to delete) that consumer’s personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny a consumer’s deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers or customers to:
(1) Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that a consumer requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with that consumer, or otherwise perform our contract with that consumer. (2) Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities. (3) Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality. (4) Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law. (5) Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.). (6) Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if a consumer previously provided informed consent. (7) Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on a consumer’s relationship with us. (8) Comply with a legal obligation. (9) Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which a consumer provided it.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either: Contacting us at email@example.com
Only a consumer, or a natural person or business entity registered with the California Secretary of State that a consumer authorizes to act on a consumer’s behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to a consumer’s personal information. A consumer may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of that consumer’s minor child.
A consumer or the consumer’s authorized agent may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows TPG to reasonably verify a consumer is the person about whom we collected personal information.
- If an authorized agent is being used, provide sufficient proof that the consumer has provided the authorized agent with permission to submit the request on the consumer’s behalf.
- Describe a consumer’s request with sufficient detail that allows TPG to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to a consumer’s or an authorized agent’s request or provide a consumer or authorized agent with personal information if we cannot verify the consumer’s or authorized agent’s identity and/or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to that consumer. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require a consumer to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided to us in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform the consumer of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will choose a format to provide a consumer’s personal information that is readily useable and should allow a consumer to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to a consumer’s verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell the consumer why we made that decision and provide the consumer with a cost estimate before completing that consumer’s request.
Consumers have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment by a business for exercising their rights under the CCPA. We will not discriminate against a consumer for exercising any CCPA rights.
