When Demandbase transfers personal information from the European Economic Area (“EEA”), Switzerland or the United Kingdom (“UK”) to another country, we implement an appropriate data transfer mechanism, like entering into standard contractual clauses approved by European data protection regulators, or take other measures to provide an adequate level of protection under EEA, Swiss or UK law.

Your Rights

The DAA opt-out requires the ability to set an opt-out cookie in your browser.

Please note that if you delete, block or otherwise restrict cookies or change your cookie preferences, or if you use a different computer or Internet browser, you may need to renew your opt-out choice. Cookie-based opt-out preferences do not apply to Demandbase’s technology used to personalize web content to organizations.
