Cribl protects User Data with the same level protection no matter where Cribl stores its data.
Cribl contractually requires affiliated businesses and third-party service providers to provide the level of protection for Personal Data that is required by the GDPR and will remain liable under the GDPR if one of its affiliated businesses or third-party service providers processes Personal Data in violation of the GDPR. However, no service can be completely secure, error free, or always available and Cribl Services and Cribl’s infrastructure may be compromised.

Cribl may also retain User Data, including Personal Data, for a longer period corresponding to a statute of limitations in order to have an accurate record of Users’ dealings with Cribl in the event of any complaints or other issues.
7. User Rights.
