In accordance with applicable laws, personal information covered by this Statement may be transferred to and processed outside of the country in which you are resident to Anaplan or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or service providers, including to the United States, Australia, Singapore, and other countries as we deem appropriate from time to time. These countries may not have equivalent privacy and data protection laws (and, in some cases, may not be as protective). We will protect your personal data in accordance with this Statement wherever it is processed. By submitting your personal information to Anaplan, you consent to such transfers and to the worldwide processing of your personal information.

Certain recipients (our service providers and/or Anaplan group companies) who process your personal data on our behalf may also transfer personal data outside the country in which you are resident. Where such transfers occur, we will make sure that an appropriate transfer agreement is put in place to protect your personal data.

EU-U.S. transfer of personal data

When we transfer personal data out of the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland, and the UK to countries that do not benefit from an adequacy decision, as determined by the European Commission, we will rely on Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission and other contractual measures to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place with respect to the data.

EU and Swiss – U.S. Privacy Shield

Anaplan participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks (collectively, the “Privacy Shield”). We are committed to subjecting all personal data received from European Union (EU) member countries, United Kingdom, and Switzerland, respectively, in reliance on the Privacy Shield and in accordance with the Privacy Shield’s Principles of Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity, Purpose Limitation, Access and Recourse, Enforcement and Liability. If there is any conflict between the terms in this Privacy Statement and the Privacy Shield Principles, the more privacy protective terms shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield site.

Under the Privacy Shield, we are responsible for the processing of personal data we receive and subsequently transfer to a third party acting as an agent on our behalf. We comply with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.

Although Anaplan adheres to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks, Anaplan no longer relies on the Privacy Shield Frameworks as a legal mechanism for transfers of personal data considering the invalidation by the Court of Justice of the European Union and the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) of Switzerland.

In compliance with Privacy Shield Principles, Anaplan commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of you personal information. EU and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our privacy practices should first contact Anaplan.

If you live in the EU or Switzerland and have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) at You may have the option to select binding arbitration for the resolution of your complaint when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted.

For purposes of enforcing compliance with the Privacy Shield, we are subject to the investigatory and enforcement authority of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

We retain your personal data as required or permitted by law and while the data continues to have a legitimate business purpose.

We have taken steps intended to maintain the security of your data and follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. You should understand that the open nature of the internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. If you have any questions about security or any reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account has been compromised), please contact us at

EEA and UK residents

If you are a resident of the EEA or the UK, you have the following data protection rights:

You may be entitled under applicable privacy laws to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. Additionally, you may be entitled under applicable privacy laws to have your personal information deleted or removed, or to object to our processing of your personal information on grounds specified by applicable laws.

To exercise any privacy rights, please submit an Individual Rights Management request or by calling +1 (855) 928-6500.

Platform user’s rights

Subject to limited exceptions under applicable law, Anaplan acknowledges that you may have the right to access, update, correct, and delete your personal information.

Please be advised that if we act as data processor/service provider to process personal information, we do so on behalf of our customers under the terms of a service agreement or similar agreement, and the information you have requested therefore is under the control of that customer. Accordingly, an individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct his or her question to the applicable customer. If the customer requests Anaplan to remove the personal data to comply with data protection regulations, Anaplan will assist the customer with such removal in accordance with customer’s instructions and subject to Anaplan’s ability to access the data as needed to respond to the request.

This Notice supplements information contained in Anaplan’s Privacy Statement and is applied solely to residents of the State of California (“consumers” or “you”). Anaplan adopts this Notice and Statement to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) of 2018, as amended from time to time. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Notice and Statement. This Notice and Statement does not reflect our collection, use, or disclosure of California residents’ personal information where an exception under the CCPA applies.

California law defines “personal information” broadly as information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular individual or household. This notice also uses that definition for personal information.

Collection of personal information

Please see the “What personal information we collect and how we collect it” section earlier in this Privacy Statement to understand the sources from which we get personal information.

We listed below categories of personal information we collect about California residents and that we have collected in the preceding 12 months. For each category of personal information, we have collected, we have included the reference to the enumerated category or categories of personal information in the definition of this term in the CCPA that most closely describes such personal information.

  • Identifiers: First and last name, address/billing address, telephone number, email address, user name, and IP address.
  • Personal information categories listed in the California Customer Records Act (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)): First and last name, date of birth, address, telephone number, bank account number, and other financial information.
  • Characteristics of protected classifications under California or federal law: Age, gender, diversity, and inclusion information.
  • Biometric identifier: Video and voice recordings.
  • Internet or network information: Browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.
  • Geolocation data: The approximate physical location associated with your IP address.
  • Professional or employment information: Your job title and organizational affiliation, professional certification details, and employment history.
  • Sensory information: Video and voice recordings.

Sharing of personal information

Please see the “To whom do we disclose personal information” section earlier in this Privacy Statement to understand how we may disclose your personal information.

California law provides you with the following rights:

  • Access: You may request access to the specific pieces of personal information collected about you over the past 12 months.
  • Deletion: You may request deletion of your personal information. We may retain personal information as required or permitted by law and will maintain a copy of your deletion request.
  • Disclosure: You may request disclosure of the categories of personal information we collect, the purposes for which we collect, sell, or disclose that information, and the categories of third parties with whom we share the information.
  • Non-Discrimination: You may not be discriminated against because you exercise any of your rights under the CCPA, in violation of California Civil Code § 1798.125.

To exercise your California privacy rights, submit a request using one of the methods described below, and provide the information required.

To exercise any privacy rights, please submit an Individual Rights Management request or by calling +1 (855) 928-6500. For your protection, we may only process requests with respect to the personal information associated with the email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before processing your request. We will respond to your requests within the timelines prescribed by applicable law.

When a business sells your personal information, you have a right to opt out of such a sale. Anaplan does not sell, and in the preceding 12 months did not sell, California residents’ personal information. Anaplan does not have actual knowledge that it sells the personal information of minors under 16 years of age.

Authorized Agent

You can designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf if:

  • The authorized agent is a natural person, or a business entity registered with the Secretary of State of California and the agent provides proof that you gave the agent signed permission to submit the request.
  • You directly confirm with Anaplan that you provided the authorized agent with permission to submit the request.

If you use an authorized agent to submit a request to exercise your right to know or your right to request deletion, please ensure that the authorized agent sends an email to with the subject line “California request to delete” and including the attachment of both the user in question and the Authorized agent’s ID with a notarized letter verifying the relationship (e.g., parent or guardian), and including detailed information about the requested data to be deleted.

If you provide an authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4121 to 4130, it may not be necessary to perform these steps and we will respond to any request from such authorized agent in accordance with the CCPA.

California Shine the Light

Residents of the State of California, under California Civil Code § 1798.83, have the right to request a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed personal information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes from companies conducting business in California. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that gives either an opt-out or opt-in choice for use of your personal information by third parties (such as advertisers) for marketing purposes, the company may instead provide you with information about how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

This comprehensive Privacy Statement from Anaplan provides you with details about how you may either opt-out or opt-in to the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain nor disclose a list of the third parties that received your personal information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please feel free to contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) here.

Alternatively, you can contact the data protection supervisory authority in your jurisdiction for assistance. Contact details for data protection authorities in the EEA and the UK are available here, and for Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) here.

We may update this Statement from time to time in response to changing legal, technical, or business developments. When we update it, we will take appropriate measures to inform you, consistent with the significance of the changes we make. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
