As explained above, Secure Privacy’s Services may use content delivery networks (“CDNs”) to provide the Services, for security purposes, and to optimize content delivery. CDNs do not have access to Service Data but are commonly used systems of distributed services that deliver content based on the geographic location of the individual accessing the content and the origin of the content provider. Website content served to website visitors and domain name information may be stored with a CDN to expedite transmission, and information transmitted across a CDN may be accessed by that CDN to enable its functions. The following describes the use of CDNs by Secure Privacy’s Services.
|CDN Provider||Services Using CDN||CDN Location||Description of CDN Services|
