Who Is Your Information Shared with?

We do not sell, trade or otherwise share your information with unrelated outside parties. However, we do share your information with our subsidiaries, affiliates, service providers and partners who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business or servicing you. WSO2 is fully committed to individual data privacy in cases of necessary onward transfers to third parties, which we only undertake after necessary due diligence and we will be fully liable to you in the event of such transfers.

We sometimes need to give our service providers who help us run our website and services access to the data we have in order for them to perform those services. These include service providers such as our Customer Relationship Management software and emailing, chat and conferencing tools. They are only authorised to use information that is strictly relevant for them to perform their tasks and we ensure that they are under obligations of confidentiality to us so that your data is secure. For a full list of third-party service providers used by the site (processors), please visit the subprocessor list.

Where payments are required to be made on our website, we use a third-party service provider to manage credit card processing. This provider is not permitted to store, retain or use billing information other than for the limited purpose of credit card processing on behalf of WSO2.

We may share your data with our subsidiaries or affiliates within our corporate group. WSO2’s parent company is WSO2 LLC and is located in the United States of America. Our affiliates are WSO2 UK Limited (located in the United Kingdom), WSO2 Lanka (Private) Limited (located in Sri Lanka), WSO2 Brasil Tecnologia E Software Eireli (located in Brazil) and WSO2 Germany GmbH ( located in Germany) and other entities we may add on our Contact Uspage from time to time. We share information within this group because these entities also carry out support, marketing, account management, business and technical operations for WSO2 that are relevant to the provision of the website and services.

Cross Border Data Transfers

WSO2 operates globally, with businesses both inside and outside of the European Economic Area ("EEA") and the UK. We may transfer Your Personal Data to countries other than the one in which You live, including transfers to the United States. We maintain regional data centres in the USA. Additionally, third-party service providers who handle data on our behalf may be based in locations around the world. For these reasons, Your personal information may be transferred to other countries both inside and outside of the UK and the EEA. As privacy laws in other countries may not be equivalent to those in Your home country, we only make arrangements to transfer data overseas where we are satisfied that adequate levels of protection are in place to protect any information held in that country or that the service provider acts at all times in compliance with applicable privacy laws. Where required under applicable laws, we will take measures to ensure that personal information handled in other countries will receive at least the same level of protection as it is given in Your home country.

In July 2023, EU regulators approved the United States as a third-party country to which EU personal data may be transferred, under an Adequacy Decision. Subsequent to this, the EU-US Data Privacy Framework was set up (which replaces the previous Privacy Shield Framework). When we transfer personal information to the US, we do so on the following basis:

WSO2 complies with the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (“DPF”) and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce. WSO2 has certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce that it adheres to the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework Principles (EU-U.S. DPF Principles) with regard to the processing of personal data received from the European Union in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and the United Kingdom in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF. If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the EU-U.S. DPF Principles, the Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Data Privacy Framework (DPF) program, and to view our certification, please visit .

WSO2 accountability for personal information it receives under the EU-U.S. DPF and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the EU-U.S. DPF Principles. In particular, WSO2 remains responsible and liable under the EU-U.S. DPF Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process the Personal Information on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless WSO2 proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

In compliance with the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, WSO2 commits to resolve DPF Principles-related complaints about our collection and use of Your personal information. EU and UK individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our handling of personal data received in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, should first contact us as specified in the Dispute Resolution Mechanism section.

Additionally, with regard to Your personal data transferred from the EU, EEA, and the United Kingdom to other WSO2 affiliate entities located around the world WSO2 also maintains Data Transfer Agreements containing the New EU Standard Contractual Clauses set out by the European Commission in June 2021 and their UK equivalent, which guarantee uniform levels of protection to Your data as specified by the EU and the UK. WSO2 remains fully liable to you with regard to all onward transfers to WSO2 global entities and WSO2 service providers listed in this Privacy Policy.

We may also release Your information when we believe release is necessary to comply with the law subject to our (Governmental and law enforcement Data Access Policy), enforce our privacy policy or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety.

How Do We Process Your Data?
