Automattic is committed to helping our customers run their sites and online businesses in a manner that complies with the GDPR’s data protection and data transfer laws.
One way we are fulfilling our commitment is by providing a Data Processing Agreement, which is a contract that documents Automattic’s compliance with the GDPR requirements that apply to us as a data processor for your site. The Agreement also satisfies the requirement for standard model clauses that govern the transfer of your data to Automattic and its subsidiaries.
The Data Processing Agreement is an amendment to our Terms of Service and is available to anyone with an active subscription for one of our paid products. You can read our Data Processing Agreement here.
If you would like to sign a Data Processing Agreement with us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please let us know your wordpress.com username, list the paid product(s) to which you have subscribed, and whether you participate in our WordAds/Jetpack ads programs. We will follow up with a copy of the Data Processing Agreement for you to sign.
Offering a Data Processing Agreement is one way in which we’re assisting our users, worldwide, in meeting the requirements of GDPR.
