Sub-processors are third-party businesses engaged by a processor for performing data processing on behalf of a controller. According to the GDPR, these companies are also accountable for protection of an individual’s personal data. Data protection obligations of sub-processors are to be established by way of contract or other legal acts under the Union or Member State law. This includes providing sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures as specified in the regulation.

Freshworks uses sub-processors (listed below), to assist in providing services as described in our Terms of Service or a similar services agreement customers may have signed with us.

Governance

Freshworks partners with organizations, that like itself adhere to global standards and regulations. Apart from evaluation for technical requirements, Freshworks ensures examination of data protection measures, compliance with Freshworks’ security requirements and security audit reports before close of contract. Initial agreements include review and approval of - provision for breach notification in the event of unwarranted data incidents, and necessary security measures for data protection.

Agreements

As part of Freshworks’ revised Terms of Service & Privacy Notice for compliance, Freshworks provides all EU customers a data processing addendum (DPA) that covers its obligations under the GDPR. You can find our DPA here. It automatically applies to processing of EU personal data and no additional paperwork is required in this regard.

Freshworks commits to keep this list updated regularly, to enable Controllers stay informed of the scope of sub-processing associated with Freshworks services.
