Privacy and security is in our DNA.

Security - it's everyone's job

At Similarweb, security is everyone’s responsibility. We combine enterprise-grade security features with comprehensive audits of our policies, applications, systems, and networks.

All our employees (and contractors) have an obligation to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, accessibility, and security of the data managed by Similarweb.


Policies that go above and beyond

Our security controls are at the heart of our commitment to compliance where we strive to go above and beyond data privacy laws, regulations, and industry standards.

  • Develop, recommend, and implement enterprise policies, technical standards, guidelines, procedures, and other elements necessary to support information security
  • Perform ongoing risk assessments on our corporate network, cloud environments and recommend risk mitigations.
  • Use a dedicated third parties risk assessment platform to perform an ongoing third-party security review of our key suppliers
  • Maintain and enhance disaster recovery and business continuity plans, and test them regularly
  • Develop and manage our security incident response process

Privacy by Design

To keep your information safe, we follow all applicable standards and regulations. We devote substantial time, effort, and resources toward compliance with all applicable privacy laws and regulations – like GDPR and CCPA – and invest heavily in developing data collection methodologies and practices that maximize compliance and protect customers’ privacy interests:

1. We employ a multistep verification process to avoid the collection of personal data or personally identifiable information (PII)

2. Behavioral data is collected anonymously and aggregated at the site- and app level – rather than the user-level

3. Data is never used for targeted advertising or user profiling, and we don’t use “cookies” to collect behavioral data
