When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter into a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to keep that personal information confidential and use it only for performance of the contract.

Further information can be found in the Section titled "Who we share your personal information with" of our Nutanix Privacy Statement.

In the preceding 12 months, we have shared personal information as necessary for business purposes, as defined by U.S. state laws, including Cal. Civ. Code 1798.140. This includes sharing personal identifiers, commercial information, and internet or other electronic network activity with our affiliates, payment processing providers, partners, and third-party service providers, including for e-mail services, customer relationship management, helpdesk services, marketing, and website analytics providers, and social networks. While we generally do not engage in the sale of your personal information for monetary consideration, there may be circumstances where we disclose or share personal information with third parties in a way that may be considered a “sale” under the CCPA and other similar U.S. state laws. For example, we may share personal information for cross-context behavioral or “targeted” advertising purposes as defined by certain U.S. state privacy laws, such as the CCPA under Cal. Civ. Code 1798.140(ad)(2). We may also participate in partner referral programs or provide certain business contact information to our partners. You have a right to direct Nutanix not to sell or share your personal information. We do not have actual knowledge that we have sold or shared personal information of individuals under the age of 16 for targeted advertising or cross-context behavioral advertising purposes.


We retain personal information we collect from you as long as is needed to fulfil the purposes outlined in this US Privacy Statement, and as further described in the Section titled "Retention" of our Nutanix Privacy Statement.

If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under the age of 16, we will delete that personal information in accordance with applicable law.

vi. Right of non-discrimination. You have the right to be free from discrimination or retaliation related to your exercise of any of your privacy rights.   

vii. Right to opt-out of sale or sharing. Like many other companies, Nutanix uses services that help deliver interest-based ads to you and may disclose personal information to business partners as further described in our Privacy Statement. Making your personal information (e.g., business contact information, online identifiers, IP address, browsing activity, etc.) available to these third parties may be considered “selling” or “sharing” under certain U.S. state privacy laws.

To opt out of the “selling” and/or “sharing” of your personal information, please refer here. Please note that your use of our Offerings may still be tracked by us and our vendors or partners to perform functions that are necessary for our businesses, such as hosting our Offerings, ensuring there is no fraud (click-fraud, fraudulent or bot traffic), etc. These entities are contractually obligated to keep such information confidential and will not use it for any purpose other than for the services they provide to us.

You can contact us with your request through one of the contact methods described under the "Contacting Nutanix" section.

We may ask you to provide information that will enable us to verify your identity and state of residency in order to comply with your request to exercise your privacy rights. Such verification methods may include successful authentication of the account you maintain with us or the matching of information you provide us to the information we maintain in our systems. In some circumstances, we may request a limited amount of additional personal information from you to verify your identity, including, but not limited to, your first name, last name, email address, phone number, state/province of residence, and/or country.

Consumers in some states may also authorize an agent to make requests on their behalf. Where you authorize an agent to make a request on your behalf, we may require the agent to provide proof of signed permission from you to submit the request on your behalf, or we may require you to verify your identity to us. In some instances, we may decline to honor your request if an exception applies under applicable law, we cannot adequately verify your identity, or where we are unable to locate your information in our systems. If we are unable to comply with all or a portion of your request, we will provide an explanation for the reasons we are unable to comply. We will respond to your request in accordance with the requirements of applicable law.

You may have the right to appeal our decisions made with respect to your request. To appeal our decision on your request, you may contact us through one of the contact methods described under the "Contacting Nutanix" section. Please enclose a copy of, or otherwise specifically reference, our decision on your request, so that we may adequately address your appeal. We will respond to your appeal in accordance with applicable law.

You may also request information about our practices related to our disclosure of your personal information to certain third parties for their direct marketing purposes. You may be able to opt out of our sharing of your personal information with unaffiliated third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes in certain circumstances. You can contact us with your request through one of the contact methods described under the "Contacting Nutanix" section.
