Privacy Policy

The Tableau Inc. respects your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with Personally Identifiable Information that we collect through this Web Site.

By providing Personally Identifiable Information to The Tableau, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Policy. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Policy, please do not provide any Personally Identifiable Information to us. We reserve the right to change this Policy without prior notice. Use of the Web Site constitutes your acceptance of the Policy then in effect.

We collect three basic types of information: Personally Identifiable Information, Non-Personally Identifiable or Aggregate Information and IP Addresses. Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies you as an individual (name, surname, email address, telephone number, credit card number and similar). We may also collect your name and business contact information from your employer in order to allow you to access the Web Site. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is aggregated information, demographic information and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity. An IP Address is the Internet Protocol address of the computer that you are using. We may also collect certain environmental variables, such as your MAC address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, OS version, Internet browser, and Internet browser version. These environmental variables are collected by most browsers, and can be used to optimize your experience on the Web Site. We may use ‘cookies’ on the Web Site. Cookies are data that a web server transfers to an individual's computer for recordkeeping and other purposes. We use cookies and other technologies to, among other things, better serve you with more tailored information and facilitate your ongoing access to and use of our Web Site.

The Tableau Inc. also collects non-personal information such as your interests, your geographic location and anonymous data, voluntarily provided by you to us as part of our research.

We work with third parties who provide services such as data analysis, surveys, research, payment processing, order fulfillment, infrastructure provision, IT services, customer service, email delivery services, credit card processing, honorarium payment, and other similar services. We may share personally identifiable information about you with third parties for the purpose of enabling these third parties to provide services. For example, if you choose to make a purchase through the Web Site, we may share your payment information with our third party service providers to fulfill your purchase, including, but not limiting, to process your credit card or payment account number or to ship products to you. These service providers are given access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but are restricted from using the personal information for purposes other than providing services for us.

When we conduct surveys or interviews for research studies, we do not include personally identifiable information about individuals who participate in those surveys or interviews in our reports and products without their consent. We do not share personal information about individuals who participate in our surveys and interviews with third parties for marketing purposes.

We may disclose your personally identifiable information to others as we believe to be appropriate: (i) under applicable law including laws outside your country of residence; (ii) to comply with legal process (iii) to respond to requests from public and government authorities including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (iv) to enforce our terms and conditions; (v) to protect our operations or those of any affiliated entities; (vi) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of The Tableau Inc., the affiliated entities, you or others, and (vii) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.

The Web Site may contain links to third party websites. Please note that this policy does not address the privacy or information practices of any third parties, including, but not limiting, the affiliated entities.

We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect your personal information under our control. Security measures and tools are in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. Please do not send us sensitive information through email. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting our Data Security Department at

We take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information we process is reliable for its intended use, accurate, and complete as necessary to carry out the purposes described in this Notice. We will retain personally identifiable information about you for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required by law.
