Welcome to the Stripe Privacy Center

Stripe respects the privacy of everyone that engages with our platform, and we are committed to being transparent about our privacy processes and policies. We are a platform that enables millions of businesses, and in order to provide our services to our users, we collect and process personal data.

The Stripe Privacy Center contains the answers to frequently asked questions about how we collect and use personal data, the rights that individuals have in relation to personal data held by Stripe, and how Stripe complies with international data protection laws.

All materials have been prepared for general information purposes only. The information presented is not legal advice, is not to be acted on as such, may not be current and is subject to change without notice.

I heard that Stripe is collecting additional information about my account from a third party and/or my other Stripe account(s). Why is Stripe collecting this information? Stripe may collect additional information about your account to allow Stripe and its financial partners to detect fraud and/or fulfill financial compliance requirements. These requirements come from our financial partners or regulatory obligations and are intended to prevent abuse of the financial system. Examples of missing data fields include your address, phone number, social security number, date of birth, employer identification number, or website URL. Stripe may be able to fill in some of this information by leveraging data we have collected from one of your other Stripe accounts or by obtaining data from a third party. We will show you the information that we are associating with your account on your dashboard, and you may update or correct that information via your dashboard. Please see Stripe's Privacy Policy for additional information.
I am a U.S. user with a Custom connected account. Does Stripe also collect information about my Custom connected account from a third party? If you are a U.S. user with a Custom connected account, Stripe may collect additional information about your account to enable fraud detection and fulfill financial compliance requirements. These requirements for additional information come from our regulators or financial partners and are intended to prevent abuse of the financial system. Examples of missing data fields include your address, phone number, social security number, date of birth, employer identification number, or website URL. Stripe may leverage data we already have from one of your Stripe accounts or Stripe may fill in some of this information by receiving data from a third party. You may view the information that we are associating with your account and update or correct that information by contacting the platform or business that created your Stripe payment account. Please see Stripe's Privacy Policy for additional information.
What responsibilities do Connect platforms with custom accounts have to allow their users to update or correct information associated with their accounts? You, the platform, are responsible for all interactions with your Custom accounts and for collecting all of the information needed to verify the Custom account-holders. Since Custom account holders cannot log into Stripe, it is up to you to build the user dashboard and communication channels. You are responsible for actioning any request by a user to update or correct their Stripe Custom account information.
I am a U.S. user with a Custom connected account. Will data collected from a third party be visible to my customers? Card networks and issuers use statement descriptors to identify payments on a cardholder’s bank statement. Statement descriptors usually include information about the payment, such as the name and phone number of the seller. However, the exact information displayed is ultimately up to a cardholder’s bank. If Stripe updates your account’s business address, phone number, or email address, these fields may be displayed on the statement descriptor within the cardholder’s bank statement. However, the exact information displayed is ultimately up to the card network or the cardholder’s bank. If any information is incorrect, please reach out to the platform through which you receive charges to ensure you have provided them with the most accurate information about you and your business.
What is Stripe Identity? Stripe provides a variety of verification services to help our customers prevent fraud, conduct identity verification, or meet their legal obligations. We call these verification services “Stripe Identity,” and we call the third party business customers who use these services “Stripe Identity Users.”

One type of verification service that Stripe provides uses biometric identification and facial verification technology to verify identity. On behalf of the Stripe Identity User, we will ask you (the person who provides us the personal information) to provide an image of your face (a “selfie”) and an image of your identification document (“ID”) (e.g., driver’s license or passport).

We will ask you for consent to use the images for two purposes. The first purpose is to verify your identity and the information provided, which may include verifying that the selfie matches the ID, reviewing and extracting the information in the ID, and confirming that the ID is valid and not associated with fraud or misuse. The second purpose is to help Stripe train our systems to more accurately verify identities and detect fraud and misuse of the services. For both purposes, we will need to extract the biometric information associated with your selfie and ID to see if they match, as discussed below. You can consent to the use of your information for verification purposes without consenting to allowing your images to be used to improve our verification technology. You can withdraw your consent for this use at any time by contacting the Stripe Identity User with whom you have a relationship. You can also email privacy@stripe.com with the subject matter line “Stripe Identity” for any additional privacy-related questions.
What is Stripe’s approach to the collection, use, and storage of biometric information in connection with its Stripe Identity product? To offer Stripe Identity, Stripe may use the biometric information associated with your selfie and ID (“face map”) to determine whether the selfie matches the ID provided. Stripe will not sell, lease, or trade a face map.

Stripe will delete the face map within 48 hours of creating it for identity verification, unless we believe it is associated with fraud or misuse of our services. We may retain face maps identified with fraud or misuse of our services for up to 1 year in order to identify and detect similar attempts or misuse. Keep in mind that while we delete the face maps within 48 hours, we store your selfie and ID for longer. Please look to the applicable Stripe Identity User’s privacy policy to learn more about their retention policies. As a service provider to the Stripe Identity User, we continue to store your image and identity document in accordance with our contracts in place with them. [Note: If you are a customer of Stripe products, you can find out more about how we use and store your personal data in the Stripe Privacy Policy.]

If you consented to the use of your data to improve the accuracy of Stripe’s facial verification technology, Stripe will use the selfie and/or ID image to train its identity verification technology by creating another face map from your images. This face map will be deleted within 48 hours after creation and used only to improve Stripe’s services.

In those limited instances where Stripe stores a face map associated with fraud or misuse of services, Stripe will implement reasonable security measures to prevent unauthorized access or use of it. We do so by using the reasonable standard of care within our industry, including through the use of access controls, and in a manner that is the same or exceeds the standards used to protect other similar confidential and sensitive information held by Stripe.
What is Stripe’s approach to the collection, use, and storage of selfie images and identification documents in connection with its Stripe Identity product? To verify your identity, Stripe will need your consent to collect and use your selfie and ID. Stripe will use facial verification technology to compare your ID and selfie. If you do not consent, we will direct you back to the Stripe Identity User. If you consent, we will use the images you provide to verify you. We may in some cases send a copy of your selfie and/or ID to a third-party service provider to Stripe to help us complete the verification, in accordance with Stripe's Privacy Policy.

Once the verification is complete, the Stripe Identity User may ask Stripe to store copies of your selfie and ID. Stripe Identity Users may be required by law to retain copies of your identification to show that they conducted an identity verification, and Stripe provides this service to many of these Stripe Identity Users. In those cases, Stripe will store the images you provided on behalf of the Stripe Identity User and they may be accessed by, or deleted at the direction of, the Stripe Identity User. Please be sure to review the Stripe Identity User’s privacy policy/notice to learn more about their use of your personal data.
How is Stripe dealing with international data transfers? The Court of Justice of the European Union issued a ruling in Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland Ltd and Maximilian Schrems (Schrems II), examining transfers of data from the European Economic Area (EEA). Here’s some additional information on Stripe’s approach to this judgment.

Stripe continues to have appropriate safeguards and compliance measures to ensure an adequate level of protection of personal data transferred outside the EEA and Switzerland. Stripe’s existing measures include the EU Commission’s approved Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) to accommodate international data transfers.

Stripe respects the privacy of everyone that engages with our products and services, and we are committed to being transparent about our privacy processes and policies. We enable millions of businesses, and in order to provide our services to our users, we collect and process personal data.

To learn more about our commitment to privacy and data security, please see our Stripe Privacy Policy, Stripe Privacy Center, and Stripe Security Center.

We also want to highlight some of our supplementary measures to protect our users’ data from unauthorized access.

Stripe maintains and enforces a security program that addresses the management of security and the security controls employed by Stripe. We also perform risk assessments and implement and maintain controls for risk identification, analysis, monitoring, reporting, and corrective action. Stripe maintains and enforces an asset management program that appropriately classifies and controls hardware and software assets throughout their life cycle. In addition, Stripe employees, agents, and contractors acknowledge their data security and privacy responsibilities under Stripe’s policies.

Stripe applies technical and organizational measures that include the following:
  • Physical access control to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to the data processing systems available at premises and facilities (including databases, application servers, and related hardware), where Personal Data are processed.
  • Virtual access control to prevent data processing systems from being used by unauthorized persons.
  • Data access control to ensure that persons entitled to use a data processing system gain access only to such Personal Data in accordance with their access rights, and that Personal Data cannot be read, copied, modified or deleted without authorization.
  • Disclosure control to ensure that Personal Data cannot be read, copied, modified or deleted without authorization during electronic transmission, transport or storage on storage media (manual or electronic), and that it can be verified to which companies or other legal entities Personal Data are disclosed.
  • Entry control to audit whether data have been entered, changed or removed (deleted), and by whom, from data processing systems.
  • Availability control to ensure that Personal Data are protected against accidental destruction or loss (physical/logical).
  • Separation control to ensure that Personal Data collected for different purposes can be processed separately.

By default, Stripe encrypts data at rest and data in transit. We further protect your data with tools like audit logs, access management policies and certifications as described on our Payments page in the section “Security and compliance at the core”. Security controls implemented at Stripe include TLS 1.2 configuration of endpoints for data in transit, TLS and/or SSL encryption for HTTPS and regular testing of infrastructure components. Two-step authentication is available for an extra layer of security at Dashboard login.

We no longer rely on the Privacy Shield as a transfer mechanism for data transfers given EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield are no longer valid as a result of the Schrems II decision issued by the European Court of Justice on July 16, 2020. We do continue to commit to the principles of the Privacy Shield Framework as it can still provide privacy protections to users.

We get requests for access to data from law enforcement, and our standard is to carefully scrutinize each request and respond with the minimum amount of information in response to legitimate, legally mandated requests.

We are committed to ensuring that our users’ data can continue to flow freely between the EU and the U.S., and we will continue to partner with regulators, industry groups and similarly situated companies to make sure our users’ needs are met.

If you have any questions, please reach out to privacy@stripe.com.
What does the Schrems II decision mean? The Court of Justice of the European Union issued a ruling in a case C-311/18 Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland Ltd and Maximilian Schrems (Schrems II) examining transfers of data from the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland. Here’s some additional information on our approach.

Stripe continues to have appropriate safeguards and compliance measures to ensure an adequate level of protection of personal data transferred outside the EEA and Switzerland. Stripe’s existing measures include the EU Commission’s approved Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) to accommodate international data transfers.

We no longer rely on the Privacy Shield as a transfer mechanism for the EU as a result of the Schrems II decision, but continue to take part in the program with respect to our certification with the U.S. Department of Commerce and for the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield. For this reason, we continue to make a reference to the Privacy Shield in some of our policies.

Our users can be assured that we are committed to compliant personal data flows through our services and that we’ll continue our work to provide adequate protections based on the issues raised in the Schrems II ruling. We will continue to evaluate the decision and anticipate regulatory guidance to be forthcoming shortly.

If you have additional questions, reach out to our Privacy team at privacy@stripe.com.
Is Stripe acting as a data controller or a data processor? The answer is both.

Stripe is a data controller when it determines the purposes and means of the processing taking place, including processing related to (1) anti-fraud activity, (2) all back-end verification and compliance activity (e.g., KYC requirements, relationships with financial partners and regulators, AML and sanction screening) and (3) improving Stripe products and services. This is because Stripe determines on its own how to handle such activity and is not instructed by the User or end-customer.

Stripe is a data processor where it is facilitating payment transactions on behalf of and at the direction of a Stripe User. In this case, the Stripe User is a data controller since Stripe is acting on the Stripe User’s instructions regarding the processing, i.e. whom to pay, how much to pay, when to pay.
What legal basis does Stripe rely on to process Personal Data as a data controller? We rely upon a number of legal grounds to ensure that our use of your Personal Data is compliant with applicable law. In short, we use Personal Data to facilitate the business relationships we have with our Users, to comply with our financial regulatory and other legal obligations, and to pursue our legitimate business interests. We also use Personal Data to complete payment transactions and to provide payment-related services to our Users.

Here’s a more detailed overview of why and how we use your Personal Data.

Contractual and pre-contractual business relationships. We use Personal Data for the purpose of entering into business relationships with prospective Stripe Users, and to perform the contractual obligations under the contracts that we have with Stripe Users. Activities that we conduct in this context include:

  • Creation and management of Stripe accounts and Stripe account credentials, including the evaluation of applications to commence or expand the use of our Services;
  • Creation and management of Stripe Checkout accounts;
  • Accounting, auditing, and billing activities; and
  • Processing of payments with Stripe Checkout, communications regarding such payments, and related customer service.


Legal and regulatory compliance. We use Personal Data to verify the identity of our Users in order to comply with fraud monitoring, prevention and detection obligations, laws associated with the identification and reporting of illegal and illicit activity, such as AML (Anti-Money Laundering) and KYC (Know-Your-Customer) obligations, and financial reporting obligations.

Legitimate business interests. We rely on our legitimate business interests to process Personal Data about you. For example, we:

  • Monitor, prevent and detect fraud and unauthorized payment transactions;
  • Mitigate financial loss, claims, liabilities or other harm to Users and Stripe;
  • Respond to inquiries, send service notices and provide customer support;
  • Promote, analyze, modify and improve our products, systems, and tools, and develop new products and services;
  • Manage, operate and improve the performance of our Sites and Services by understanding their effectiveness and optimizing our digital assets;
  • Analyze and advertise our products and services;
  • Conduct aggregate analysis and develop business intelligence that enable us to operate, protect, make informed decisions, and report on the performance of, our business;
  • Share Personal Data with third party service providers that provide services on our behalf and business partners which help us operate and improve our business;
  • Ensure network and information security throughout Stripe and our Services; and
  • Transmit Personal Data within our affiliates for internal administrative purposes.


Payment transactions and related services (Stripe as a data processor). As a processor of payment transactions, we use Personal Data of our User’s Customers to process online payment transactions and authenticate Customers on behalf of our Users.

Marketing and events-related communication. We may send you email marketing communications about Stripe products and services, invite you to participate in our events or surveys, or otherwise communicate with you for marketing purposes, provided that we do so in accordance with the consent requirements that are imposed by applicable law.

Advertising. When you visit our Sites, we (and our service providers) may use Personal Data collected from you and your device to target advertisements for Stripe Services to you on our Sites and other sites you visit (interest-based advertising), where allowed by applicable law. We do not use, share, rent or sell the Personal Data of our Users’ Customers for interest-based advertising. We do not sell or rent the Personal Data of our Users, their Customers or our Site visitors.

What are your data controller activities?
  • Providing the Stripe products and services to Stripe users;
  • Monitoring, preventing and detecting fraudulent payment transactions;
  • Complying with legal or regulatory obligations applicable to the financial sector to which Stripe is subject, including applicable anti-money laundering screening and compliance with know-your-customer obligations; and
  • Analyzing, developing and improving Stripe’s products and services.
As a Stripe User and as a data controller, what does GDPR mean for me? Take a look at our GDPR Guide.

In addition, as data controller, you are responsible for the relationship with the data subject (i.e., your end customer). You may instruct a third party (like Stripe) to process the data but it is your job to set the purpose (or objectives) and legal basis for the processing.

All third parties have to abide by the terms agreed by the data controller and the data subject. To be sure of this, the data controller must have Data Processing Agreements (i.e., DPAs) with each one. Our DPA has been designed to serve this purpose for you; it is strongly aligned with payment transactions, so it should establish that you are compliant with GDPR from a payments perspective.
Does Stripe have a Data Protection Officer (DPO)? Yes, Stripe has appointed a DPO and they can be reached via dpo@stripe.com.
Who are Stripe’s sub-processors and how are they vetted? Please see our service providers page where we have a list of our most common sub-processors. Stripe identifies, evaluates, and engages sub-processors through our vendor management program. We enter into a contract with each sub-processor prior to sharing data with the sub-processor, and each contract contains terms that provide for monitoring and audit. In addition, all potential vendors are vetted and approved through Stripe’s security review process before we begin using their services.
What is a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) and how can I get one with Stripe? A Data Processing Agreement is a contract between a data controller and a data processor, which describes the roles and responsibilities of the parties when personal data is processed. Article 28 of the GDPR sets out a number of requirements that a Data Processing Agreement must satisfy in order to be compliant with European data privacy law. We have made a Data Processing Agreement available to Stripe Users. When you are logged in to your Stripe account you can review and accept the Stripe DPA.
How do I delete my account? You can close your Stripe account from the Settings page on the Dashboard. You can read more about that on our support page: Close a Stripe account.

Please be aware that we will delete some, but not all, of the information that we hold, for the reasons explained below.

As a provider of payment services, Stripe is required to comply with many regulations, including anti-terrorism and anti-money laundering laws. These regulations and laws may require Stripe to retain transactional records associated with Stripe Users for a prescribed period of time after the close of the customer relationship. You can read more about our underwriting obligations in our Privacy Policy.
How do I delete my Custom Connect account? If you are a Custom Connect account User, your account is managed by a Platform User of Stripe. They are the party responsible for managing payments for you and responding to your query, therefore we recommend reaching out to them for assistance.
How do I delete my Express Connect account? If you are an Express Connect account User, your account is managed by a Platform User of Stripe. They are the party responsible for managing payments for you and responding to your query, therefore we recommend reaching out to them for assistance.
Where can I get more information about your privacy and cookie practices? This information can be found in our Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy. Security and privacy are the highest priority for Stripe. We take our responsibilities to you seriously and value transparency in our interactions. We put together this summary of the key clarifications we made to our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy, effective as of April 28, 2020.

In the Privacy Policy:

  • We clarified that Stripe does not use, share, rent or sell payment transactional data or fraud detection signals for ad targeting. We also further clarified that we do not rent or sell this information to third parties for advertising purposes.
  • We clarified that in the event of a sale, merger, reorganization or similar transaction, the entity that buys all or part of our business will continue to be bound by the Privacy Policy, including our commitments around the use of data for ads.


In the Cookie Policy:

  • We have broken down our explanation about the types of cookies we use. We make more clear what cookies are necessary for providing the Stripe services our users have chosen to integrate.
  • Now, the cookie table also includes additional information about the purpose of certain cookies like those we use for fraud detection, and more information about where our cookies come from and their expiration.


We’ve also expanded our fraud documentation to further describe our Advanced Fraud Signals to help our Users understand in more detail how these cookies are integrated into the fraud detection tooling.

What is Stripe.js? Stripe.js (and its iOS and Android SDK counterparts) is a JavaScript library that businesses use to integrate Stripe and accept online payments. Once Stripe.js is added to a site or mobile app, fraud signals are used to differentiate legitimate behavior from fraudulent behavior.

For example, fraudsters and bots are less likely to spend time on different pages, which we’re able to detect and use as a signal in stopping fraud.

When you visit a site that uses Stripe, this fraud prevention could appear in a privacy report or tracker list in your web browser.

While you might see Stripe in a tracker list, we’re not building an individual tracking profile on you. Stripe doesn’t—and won’t—share or sell this data to advertisers.This data is securely exchanged between the following Stripe-controlled hosts:

  • js.stripe.com
  • m.stripe.network
  • m.stripe.com
  • q.stripe.com


The data collected by these endpoints is designed to be secure and to not leave Stripe infrastructure. Access to this data is tightly controlled, and restricted to a small number of Stripe employees working on fraud prevention and security (and permissions are regularly reviewed). You can read more about this in our Privacy Policy.
What are advanced fraud signals? Stripe’s advanced fraud detection looks at signals from a customer’s device characteristics and user activity indicators, such as quickly copy and pasting—things that bots or fraudsters would do, not legitimate customers. These signals are highly indicative of fraud and power Stripe’s fraud prevention systems, such as Radar. The signals are securely transmitted to Stripe’s backend by periodically making requests to the m.stripe.com endpoint.

You can learn more in our documentation for advanced fraud detection.
Why are advanced fraud signals not ad tracking? Stripe only uses these advanced fraud detection signals to enable secure payments and prevent fraud. We don’t use this data to build individual profiles or share or sell it to third-party advertisers.

You can read more about how we use this data in our Privacy Policy.
Can I turn off tracking and advanced fraud signals? Your web browser may allow you to manage your cookie preferences, including deleting or disabling Stripe cookies. If you choose to disable cookies, keep in mind that some features of our Site or Services may not operate as intended. Disabling cookies will not disable the collection of advanced fraud signals, which we use to prevent fraud on Stripe. The collection of this data is controlled by the business that integrated with Stripe. If a business seeks to disable this data collection there are instructions to do so through Stripe’s docs. You can take a look at the help section of your web browser or follow the links below to understand your options for disabling cookies.


You can learn more about how businesses can disable collection of advanced fraud signals in our documentation for disabling advanced fraud detection.
