This website and its contents don’t give any party additional rights or remedies and shouldn’t be construed as a binding agreement. The information herein is provided to illustrate DocuSign’s engagement process for subprocessors, and to provide a subprocessor list.
DocuSign uses certain subprocessors to support the delivery of the DocuSign services.
What is a subprocessor?
A subprocessor is a data processor who, on behalf of DocuSign, processes personal data contained in electronic documents and files submitted to the DocuSign services.
DocuSign uses certain infrastructure subprocessors to host its applications and other service-specific subprocessors to provide specific functionality within the DocuSign services or to provide professional services. Subprocessors used to provide professional services to customers are set forth in statements of work or other similar service agreements. Also, such subprocessors may be provided in a list of subprocessors.
