For example, Cradlepoint employs physical access controls, encryption, Internet firewalls, intrusion detection and network monitoring depending on the nature of the information and the scope of processing. Cradlepoint staff who may have access to Personal Data are required to keep that information confidential. However, no security procedures or protocols are ever guaranteed to be 100% secure and so we encourage you to take care when disclosing Personal Data online. You may read more about our security measures at

Security measures you can take: Cloud services follow a shared responsibility model where the Cloud Service Provider is responsible for the security of the service, while the customer is responsible for the security of their use of the service. Cradlepoint’s Security Best Practices KnowledgeBase article provides recommendations to protect your account, such as enabling two-factor authentication for your account. Additionally, you must keep your account secure with a confidential password and not disclose them publicly or to unauthorized individuals — this includes accidentally distributing them in source code or shared repositories. Please let us know right away if you think your password or account was compromised or misused. For instructions on changing your password, please consult our password reset KnowledgeBase article. For instructions on resetting your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) token, please consult our MFA KnowledgeBase article.

Similarly, if you provision an API Key, you should keep your secret, well… secret. You should store your API Key, Account SID, and secret in a secure location. Information on provisioning and revoking API Keys can be found here.

Where local laws are less strict than this Notice, the terms described in this Notice will apply. Additional notices may apply to you based upon the regulations that apply to your country or U.S. state of residence.

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA) or the United Kingdom (UK):
This Privacy Statement applies to Personal Data collected and/or used by Cradlepoint while acting in the capacity of a Data Controller, as defined in the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679, the “EU GDPR” or, where applicable, the “United Kingdom (UK) GDPR” (as it forms part of the law of England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland by virtue of section 3 of the UK European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018), as amended and supplemented from time to time (together, herein referred to as the “GDPR”):

Data Controller and Data Processor
Certain data protection laws, including the GDPR, differentiate between “controllers” and “processors” of personal data. A Data Controller decides why and how to process personal information. A Data Processor does not make decisions about personal data and only processes personal information on behalf of a controller based on the controller’s instructions.

Cradlepoint is the Data Controller and responsible for the Personal Data it collects and processes in the role of the Data Controller. For instance, Cradlepoint is the Data Controller for its Marketing data, Customer contact information, and its employee and contractor data. Cradlepoint may also be a Controller when developing products and new features and providing customer support and fraud prevention. For purposes of the GDPR, the Data Controller is Cradlepoint, Inc. and its affiliates, 1100 West Idaho Street, Suite 800, Boise, ID 83702.

Our Customers are the Data Controllers for any Personal Data related to them and the parties they allow to use our Services.

Generally, Cradlepoint is the Data Processor for the Services it performs for its Customers. For instance, Cradlepoint is the Processor of Personal Data processed for provision of NetCloud Manager, NetCloud Exchange Services and NetCloud Private Networks. When acting as a Data Processor, we only process personal data at the instruction of our Customers.

If you are an end user of a Cradlepoint customer, this Privacy Notice does not apply to the services that our customers provide to their end users. Our customers have their own policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of the personal information of their end users. If you are an end user of one of our customers and want to learn about how that customer handles your personal information, we encourage you to read the customer’s privacy policy. Only the customer can assist you with requests for access or deletion.
