Effective as of August 16, 2018

ThoughtSpot, Inc. (“ThoughtSpot” or the “Company”) respects the privacy of visitors to its Website (as defined in our Privacy Statement). The ThoughtSpot Cookie Policy (the “Policy”) applies to the ThoughtSpot Website and describes the information we collect by automated means through the use of information gathering tools, such as cookies and web beacons.

Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of information or text that are issued to your computer when you visit a website and are used to store or track information about your use of the site.

ThoughtSpot uses both session‑based and persistent‑based cookies. Session‑based cookies exist only during your web session and expire when you close your internet browser. Persistent‑based cookies are files that stay in one of your browser's subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent cookie's file.

ThoughtSpot uses cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are strictly necessary to enable core website functionality, otherwise known as “required” cookies.  We may use required cookies to authenticate your access to various areas of our Website. Other cookies allow us to enhance your browsing experience and tailor content to your preferences – these are known as “functional” cookies.  We may use functional cookies to determine whether you have visited our Website before and inform us about site features in which you have interest, thereby permitting us to better tailor our Website content. Functional cookies also allow us to analyze Website traffic so we can measure and improve performance and speed up your searches.

In addition to required and functional cookies, some third parties issue cookies through our Website to serve ads that are relevant to your interests based on your browsing activities. These third parties may also collect your browser history or other information to determine how you reached our Website and the website you visit when you leave our Website. Information gathered through these automated means may be associated with the personal information you previously submitted on our Website.

We may also collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools (such as Google Analytics), to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Websites.  These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit, your use of third party applications, and other information that assists us in analyzing and improving the Websites.

Do Not Track

While ThoughtSpot attempts to honor do not track (“DNT”) instructions we receive from a user’s browser, we cannot guarantee that ThoughtSpot will always respond to such signals, in part, because of the lack of common industry standard for DNT technology. We continue to monitor developments in DNT technology and stay apprised of DNT industry standards as they evolve.

Web Beacons

Web beacons (also known as internet tags, pixel tags, and clear GIFs) are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as the type of browser used to view a website page, when you viewed a particular site linked to the web beacon, and a description of a site tied to the web beacon. Certain pages on our Website may contain such web beacons, which the Company uses to operate and improve the Website.

IP Addresses

An IP address is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. When you visit our Website, we may view the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. We use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and the geographic regions of our visitors.
