California Consumer Privacy Act

Does Cedar Silicon comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)?

Cedar Silicon is committed to compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), a new California law that went into effect January 1st, 2020.

We understand that compliance with a new set of privacy laws can be challenging. We hope that this page will be useful for our customers to understand and exercise their rights under the CCPA, and provide our customers with some clarification about Cedar Silicon’s role and obligations under the CCPA.

Our legal and security experts have closely analyzed the requirements of the CCPA and continue to monitor new guidance on best practices for implementing the requirements of the CCPA.

What Cedar Silicon is doing?

Cedar Silicon implemented its company-wide CCPA compliance strategy in advance of the January 2020 due date. Below are a few examples of initiatives Cedar Silicon has undertaken in order to satisfy CCPA requirements that apply to both Cedar Silicon and our customers:

  • We are maintaining an information security policy comparable with ISO27000 seriesstandards and we are maintaining security in the delivery of our Services in accordance with SOC2 standards (or any successor standards). These standards mirror many of the security and privacy requirements of CCPA and will help give our customers a transparent framework to measure our development and data management practices. Assurance that Cedar Silicon maintains and follows these standards are affirmed through our annual internal audit. For more detailed information, contact us at
  • We are committed to provide our authorized users with the ability to access, update, rectify, export and erase their personal information themselves.
  • We are holding vendors that handle personal data to required data management, security, and privacy practices and standards.
  • We are ensuring that Cedar Silicon staff that process Cedar Silicon customer personal information have been trained in handling that data and are bound to maintain the confidentiality and security of that data.

Please review our Privacy Policy for a detailed description of Cedar Silicon’s compliance steps with CCPA.


Does Cedar Silicon process the personal information of its customers?

Yes, Cedar Silicon processes our user’s personal information to provide the products and services as set forth in our customer agreements and for other limited purposes enumerated in our Privacy Policy.

What personal information does Cedar Silicon process when providing its Services?

For most users, this is limited to “business card” information of users that register for the service - meaning their names and e-mail addresses, and an IP address. We may obtain your phone number if we need to reach out for a support issue, and you can put your picture or avatar on your account if you would like to personalize your interactions with other users.

Please bear in mind that as a service provider of design, prototyping, and design management services, when building designs and prototypes with Cedar Silicon, Cedar Silicon does not process your end-customer data or have access to your internal IT systems. It is an industry standard to use ‘dummy data’ when building designs and prototypes, and this is a firm requirement under our terms of service with our customers.

What is Cedar Silicon’s role?

Where you are using our Services and making decisions about the personal information that is being processed in the Services (for example when uploading and using Customer Content, or selecting the Third Party Services you wish to connect to the Services), you are acting as a Business and Cedar Silicon is acting as a Service Provider (as defined under the CCPA).

Where does Cedar Silicon store and process my personal information?

Our goal is to provide our customers with secure, fast, and reliable services. Today, Cedar Silicon stores data in its AWS data center located in the U.S. In order to bring you world class products, and to provide support and maintenance (e.g. 24x7 support coverage), Cedar Silicon may also allow employees and contractors located outside the U.S. (e.g. in the EU, Argentina, Australia, Canada, Israel and the United Kingdom) to access certain data for product development, and customer and technical support purposes. We ensure that all such disclosures are compliant with the law and that all use will be for the limited purpose described.

How can I exercise my consumer rights under the CCPA?

Please contact us directly at if you have any additional requests or questions.

How does the verification process work?

Cedar Silicon takes all reasonable precautions to verify your identity in connection with fulfilling its responsibilities under the CCPA. Cedar Silicon will verify each request based on the following process:

To initiate a request under CCPA, you must contact Cedar Silicon via from the email address associated with your personal information. Once we receive your request, we will send a confirmation response to which you will need to reply before we will be able to proceed.

Can I opt out of the sale of my personal information?

Cedar Silicon does not sell personal information as defined under CCPA. You can decide to opt out of our marketing communications by contacting us directly at

Does Cedar Silicon enter into CCPA compliant data processing Addendum (DPA)?

Cedar Silicon will enter into a CCPA data processing addendum (CCPA DPA) with our customers who have purchased a subscription to our SDK Support Premium services or other SaaS Platforms via a written agreement. We provide a CCPA-compliant DPA that is tuned to our service, and we invite such customers to complete and execute our GDPR-compliant DPA - Cedar Silicon Customer Data Processing Addendum. Please request the CCPA DPA via your Account Manager.
