Staffbase Sub-Processors

01 October 2020

To support the delivery of the Staffbase Services, Staffbase (Staffbase GmbH, Staffbase Inc. or one of its other Affiliates listed below) uses Sub-Processors that may store and process personal data of Staffbase’s Customers. Prior to engaging a Sub-Processor, Staffbase carefully evaluates the privacy and data protection, security, and confidentiality practices of that Sub-Processor. Staffbase also enters into a data processing agreement and, if relevant, standard contractual clauses with Sub-Processors. This page provides important information about the identity, location, and role of our Sub-Processors. Terms used on this page but not defined have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Service or, if applicable, in the signed Master Service Agreement between the parties (in either case, the"Governing Agreement").
