Splunk provides security and observability tools that our customers use to manage their security and resiliency objectives.

    Splunk uses a limited number of third-party service providers to assist us in providing our services to customers which are listed on Splunk’s website. These third party providers offer customer service and support to our customers, assist with configuration, help protect security and monitor performance, provide in-service communication, or offer hosting and infrastructure services. These third parties may access, process, or store personal data in the course of providing their services. Splunk maintains contracts with these third parties restricting their access, use and disclosure of personal data in compliance with our Data Privacy Framework obligations, including the onward transfer provisions, and Splunk remains liable if they fail to meet those obligations and we are responsible for the event giving rise to damage.

We will refer your request to that customer, and will support them as needed in responding to your request.
