Stripe HR Data Privacy Framework Policy

Effective date: October 31, 2023 

Stripe, Inc. (“Stripe”, “we”, “our” or “us”) complies with the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (“EU-U.S. DPF”), the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, and the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce (collectively, the “DPF”).

This Stripe Data Privacy Framework Policy (“DPF Policy”) and where applicable, the European Applicant Personal Information Notice or the European Employee Personal Information Notice, describes the privacy practices that we implement for Personal Data received from the EEA, UK and Switzerland in reliance on the DPF. Stripe has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the DPR Principles with respect to the processing of such data. This DPF Policy uses terms that are defined in the relevant notice(s). If there is any conflict between the terms in this DPF Policy and the DPF Principles as concerns the Personal Data received under the DPF, the DPF Principles will prevail. 

To learn more about the DPF program, please visit, and to view our certification, please see here

What this disclosure covers

Please see the relevant parts of the applicable notice and/or other policies for information about:

  • The types of Personal Data processed;
  • The purposes of data processing;
  • Third parties who may receive Personal Data;

  • Any choices and means to limit the use and disclosure of Personal Data.

Compelled disclosure

Stripe may be required to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.


Stripe’s compliance with the DPF is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

In certain circumstances, the DPF provides the right to invoke binding arbitration to resolve complaints not resolved by other means, as described in Annex I to the Data Privacy Framework Principles.
