Offering a Data Processing Agreement is one way in which we’re assisting our users, worldwide, in meeting the requirements of GDPR.

Hi, thats all quite nice for users of others than the basic (free) tarif, but as I understand GDPR, we need an option to sign a Data Processing Agreement too, don’t we?

Some website owners do yes, mainly businesses that make contractual commitments to their own customers or users about GDPR compliance and need a contract like this DPA to demonstrate that they’ve checked the right boxes with the web host that handles their data (Automattic). Most users of or free plans do not have these types of commitments or concerns, but if they do, the option to get a DPA is available as part of one of our paid plans.
