Zapier takes the protection of our customers’ information seriously and is committed to complying with applicable data privacy laws, including GDPR, UK GDPR, and CCPA, when providing services to our customers. Data privacy is a collaborative effort, and Zapier is also committed to ensuring that you can use Zapier services while complying with your obligations under applicable data privacy laws. This page is designed to help you with your data privacy obligations by providing information about Zapier’s data protection practices and the choices that you have regarding the data processed by Zapier when you use Zapier services.
Zapier has ongoing processes to protect your data and privacy rights:
Zapier periodically reviews the types of data that it collects, the reasons for collecting that data, and when Zapier personnel might need to access it.
Zapier audits its vendors, both at the time of onboarding and thereafter, to ensure that they adhere to data privacy laws/regulations and sign all relevant Data Processing Addendums.
Zapier documents pertinent changes in its privacy compliance practices. Customer and partner notification occurs via email, this webpage, and the updates blog. Zapier also maintains a Data Privacy & Security FAQ page that may be useful to review.
Zapier continues to refine processes for how it performs customer support, builds services, and handles data. This includes internal documentation, training, and other processes.
For Customer Content (content transferred in and out of Zaps or other Zapier services), you, the customer, are considered the “data controller” of that data from a privacy perspective.
In turn, Zapier is the “data processor” responsible for safeguarding Customer Content as it flows through Zapier’s systems. Zapier’s security measures are described on Zapier’s Security and Compliance page.
As data controller, you are responsible for safeguarding Customer Content as you interact directly with services integrated with Zapier. You should configure your Zaps and integrations to not trigger or work with other users' data without proper consent.

Because Zapier’s Terms of Service already incorporate Zapier’s Data Processing Addendum (“DPA”), you do not need to sign a separate copy. This DPA (and the accompanying Standard Contractual Clauses) contain legal terms that apply to personal information that may be contained in Customer Content. We’ve updated the DPA as of October 3, 2022, to add specific provisions regarding data transfers from the UK.
If you need a standalone copy of Zapier’s DPA for your records or other compliance purposes, you can:
- Download a PDF copy of the DPA. Do not sign or return this copy to Zapier.
- Generate an electronically signed copy of the DPA. You will receive two emails, both from HelloSign (firstname.lastname@example.org):
- The first will be a request to sign with the subject: “Signature requested”.
- Once you sign and agree to the DPA terms, you will receive a second email with the subject: “You just signed” that contains a fully signed PDF copy of the DPA.
- If you have any trouble receiving these messages, check your spam folder, wait at least five minutes for each email to arrive, and ensure you clicked the final “Agree” button after signing in HelloSign.
