As we mention in the ‘Safeguards’ section of our HubSpot Customer Terms of Service, for the purposes of Article 26(2) of Directive 95/46/EC, customers located in the European Union or the European Economic Area may enter into a Data Processing Agreement that includes the Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission in order to further provide adequate safeguards with respect to the data processed under the HubSpot Customer Terms of Service. This document is the Data Processing Agreement that we reference in that section.

INTRODUCTION

This HubSpot Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”) reflects the parties’ agreement with respect to the terms governing the processing of Personal Data under the HubSpot Customer Terms of Service (the “TOS”). This DPA is an amendment to the TOS and is effective upon its incorporation into the TOS, which incorporation may be specified in an Order or an executed amendment to the TOS. Upon its incorporation into the TOS, the DPA will form a part of the TOS.

In all cases HubSpot (“Processor”), or a third party acting on behalf of Processor, acts as the processor of Personal Data and you (“Controller”) remain controller of Personal Data. The term of this DPA shall follow the term of the TOS. Terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning as set forth in the TOS.

THIS DPA INCLUDES:

(i) Standard Contractual Clauses, attached hereto aEXHIBIT 1.

(a) Appendix 1 to the Standard Contractual Clauses, which includes specifics on the personal data transferred by the data exporter to the data importer.

(b) Appendix 2 to the Standard Contractual Clauses, which includes a description of the technical and organizational security measures implemented by the data importer as referenced.

(ii) List of Subcontractors, attached hereto as EXHIBIT 2.

1. Definitions

“Personal Data” means any individual element of information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual.

“Processing” means processing of Personal Data on behalf, encompassing the storage, amendment, transfer, blocking or erasure of personal data by the processor acting on behalf of the Controller.

“Instruction” means the written instruction, issued by Controller to Processor, and directing the same to perform a specific action with regard to Personal Data (including, but not limited to, depersonalising, blocking, deletion, making available). Instructions shall initially be specified in the TOS and may, from time to time thereafter, be amended, amplified or replaced by Controller in separate written instructions (individual instructions).

2. Scope and Responsibility

Processor shall process Personal Data on behalf of Controller. Processing shall include such actions as may be specified in the TOS and an Order. Within the scope of the TOS, Controller shall be solely responsible for complying with the statutory requirements relating to data protection, in particular regarding the transfer of Personal Data to the Processor and the Processing of Personal Data (acting as “responsible body” as defined in § 3 para. 7 BDSG” or a corresponding provision of the otherwise applicable national data protection law).

Based on this responsibility, Controller shall be entitled to demand the rectification, deletion, blocking and making available of Personal Data during and after the term of the TOS in accordance with the further specifications of such agreement on return and deletion of personal data.

The regulations of this DPA shall equally apply if testing or maintenance of automatic processes or of Processing equipment is performed on behalf of Controller, and access to Personal Data in such context cannot be excluded.

3. Obligations of Processor

Processor shall collect, process and use Personal Data only within the scope of Controller’s Instructions. If the Processor thinks that an instruction of the Controller infringes the BDSG or other data protection provisions, it shall point this out to the principal without delay.

Within Processor’s area of responsibility, Processor shall structure Processor’s internal corporate organisation to ensure compliance with the specific requirements of the protection of Personal Data. Processor shall take the appropriate technical and organisational measures to adequately protect Controller’s Personal Data against misuse and loss in accordance with the requirements of the German Federal Data Protection Act (§ 9 BDSG) or a corresponding provision of the otherwise applicable national data protection law. Such measures hereunder shall include, but not be limited to,

a) the prevention of unauthorised persons from gaining access to Personal Data Processing systems (physical access control),

b) the prevention of Personal Data Processing systems from being used without authorisation (logical access control),

c) ensuring that persons entitled to use a Personal Data Processing system gain access only to such Personal Data as they are entitled to accessing in accordance with their access rights, and that, in the course of processing or use and after storage, Personal Data cannot be read, copied, modified or deleted without authorisation (data access control),

d) ensuring that Personal Data cannot be read, copied, modified or deleted without authorisation during electronic transmission, transport or storage on storage media, and that the target entities for any transfer of Personal Data by means of data transmission facilities can be established and verified (data transfer control),

e) ensuring the establishment of an audit trail to document whether and by whom Personal Data have been entered into, modified in, or removed from Personal Data Processing systems (entry control),

f) ensuring that Personal Data Processed are Processed solely in accordance with the Instructions (control of instructions),

g) ensuring that Personal Data are protected against accidental destruction or loss (availability control),

h) ensuring that Personal Data collected for different purposes can be processed separately (separation control).

A measure as referred to in lit. b to d above shall be in particular, but shall not be limited to, the use of state of the art encryption technology for client access. An overview of the above listed technical and organizational measures shall be attached to this DPA as an appendix.

Upon Controller’s request, Processor shall provide a current Personal Data protection and security programme covering Processing hereunder.

Upon Controller’s request, and except where Controller is able to obtain such information directly, Processor shall provide all information necessary for compiling the overview defined by § 4g para. 2 sentence 1 BDSG or a corresponding provision of the otherwise applicable national data protection law.

Processor shall ensure that any personnel entrusted with Processing Controller’s Personal Data have undertaken to comply with the principle of data secrecy in accordance with § 5 BDSG (or a corresponding provision of the otherwise applicable national data protection law) and have been duly instructed on the protective regulations of the BDSG or the otherwise applicable national data protection law. The undertaking to secrecy shall continue after the termination of the above-entitled activities.

The Processor shall appoint a data protection official, if this is legally required and, upon request of Controller, Processor shall notify to Controller the contact details of the data protection official.

Processor shall, without undue delay, inform Controller in case of a serious interruption of operations or violations by the Processor or persons employed by it of provisions to protect Personal Data or of terms specified in this DPA. In such an event, Processor shall implement the measures necessary to secure the Personal Data and to mitigate potential adverse effects on the data subjects and shall agree upon the same with Controller without undue delay. Processor shall support Controller in fulfilling Controller’s disclosure obligations under section 42a BDSG (or a corresponding provision of the otherwise applicable national data protection law).

Controller shall retain title as to any carrier media provided to Processor as well as any copies or reproductions thereof. Processor shall store such media safely and protect them against unauthorised access by third parties. Processor shall, upon Controller’s request, provide to Controller all information on Controller’s Personal Data and information. Processor shall be obliged to securely delete any test and scrap material based on an Instruction issued by Controller on a case-by-case basis. Where Controller so decides, Processor shall hand over such material to Controller or store it on Controller’s behalf.

Processor shall be obliged to audit and verify the fulfilment of the above-entitled obligations and shall maintain an adequate documentation of such verification.

4. Obligations of Controller

Controller and Processor shall be separately responsible for conforming with such statutory data protection regulations as are applicable to them.

Controller shall inform Processor without undue delay and comprehensively about any errors or irregularities related to statutory provisions on the Processing of Personal Data detected during a verification of the results of such Processing.

Controller shall be obliged to maintain the publicly available register as defined in § 4g para. 2 sentence 2 BDSG (or a corresponding provision of the otherwise applicable national data protection law).

Controller shall be responsible for fulfilling the duties to inform resulting from § 42a BDSG or a corresponding provision of the otherwise applicable national data protection law.

Controller shall, upon termination or expiration of the TOS and by way of issuing an Instruction, stipulate, within a period of time set by Processor, the reasonable measures to return data carrier media or to delete stored data.

Any additional cost arising in connection with the return or deletion of Personal Data after the termination or expiration of the TOS shall be borne by Controller.

5Enquiries by Data Subjects to Controller

Where Controller, based upon applicable data protection law, is obliged to provide information to an individual about the collection, processing or use or its Personal Data, Processor shall assist Controller in making this information available, provided that: (i) Controller has instructed Processor in writing to do so, and (ii) Controller reimburses Processor for the costs arising from this assistance.

Where a data subject requests the Processor to correct, delete or block Personal Data, Processor shall refer such data subject to the Controller.

6Audit Obligations

Controller shall, prior to the commencement of Processing, and at regular intervals thereafter, audit the technical and organisational measures taken by Processor, and shall document the resulting findings.

For such purpose, Controller may, e.g.,

  • obtain information from the Processor,
  • request Processor to submit to Controller an existing attestation or certificate by an independent professional expert, or
  • upon reasonable and timely advance agreement, during regular business hours and without interrupting Processor’s business operations, conduct an on-site inspection of Processor’s business operations or have the same conducted by a qualified third party which shall not be a competitor of Processor. 

Processor shall, upon Controller’s written request and within a reasonable period of time, provide Controller with all information necessary for such audit.

7Subcontractors

Processor shall be entitled to subcontract Processor’s obligations defined in the TOS to third parties only with Controller’s written consent.

Controller consents to Processor’s subcontracting to Processor’s affiliated companies and third parties, as listed in Exhibit 2, of Processor’s contractual obligations hereunder.

If the Processor intends to instruct subcontractors other than the companies listed in Exhibit 2, the Processor must notify the Controller thereof in writing (email to the email address(es) on record in Processor’s account information for Controller is sufficient) and must give the Controller the possibility to object against the instruction of the subcontractor within 30 days after being notified. The objection must be based on reasonable grounds (e.g. if the Controller proves that significant risks for the protection of its Personal Data exist at the subcontractor). If the Processor and Controller are unable to resolve such objection, either party may terminate the TOS by providing written notice to the other party. Controller shall receive a refund of any prepaid but unused fees for the period following the effective date of termination.

Where Processor engages subcontractors, Processor shall be obliged to pass on Processor’s contractual obligations hereunder to such subcontractors. Sentence 1 shall apply in particular, but shall not be limited to, the contractual requirements for confidentiality, data protection and data security stipulated between the parties of the TOS.

Where a subcontractor is used, the Controller must be granted the right to monitor and inspect the subcontractor in accordance with this DPA and Section 11 BDSG in conjunction with item No 6 of the Annex to Section 9 BDSG (or in accordance with the corresponding provision of the otherwise applicable national data protection law). This also includes the right of the Controller to obtain information from the Processor, upon written request, on the substance of the contract and the implementation of the data protection obligations within the subcontract relationship, where necessary by inspecting the relevant contract documents.

The provisions of this § 7 shall apply as well if a subcontractor in a third country shall be instructed. The Controller hereby authorizes the Processor, to agree in the name and on behalf of the Controller with a subcontractor which processes or uses Personal Data of the Controller outside of the EEA, to enter into EU Standard Contractual Clauses for the Transfer of Personal Data to Processors Established in Third Countries dated 5 February 2010. This applies accordingly from the date of this authorization with respect to EU Standard Contractual Clauses (Processors) already concluded by the Processor with such subcontractors.

8. Duties to Inform, Mandatory Written Form, Choice of Law, Additional Terms

Where Controller’s Personal Data becomes subject to search and seizure, an attachment order, confiscation during bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings, or similar events or measures by third parties while being Processed, Processor shall inform Controller without undue delay. Processor shall, without undue delay, notify to all pertinent parties in such action, that any Personal Data affected thereby is in Controller’s sole property and area of responsibility, that Personal Data is at Controller’s sole disposition, and that Controller is the responsible body in the sense of the BDSG (or a corresponding provision of the otherwise applicable national data protection law).

With respect to updates and changes to this DPA, the terms that apply in the ‘Amendment; No Waiver’ section of ‘GENERAL TERMS' in the TOS shall apply.

In case of any conflict, the regulations of this DPA shall take precedence over the regulations of the TOS. Where individual regulations of this DPA are invalid or unenforceable, the validity and enforceability of the other regulations of this DPA shall not be affected.

The Standard Contractual Clauses in Exhibit 1 (“SCCs”) will apply to the processing of Personal Data by Processor under the TOS. Upon the incorporation of this DPA into the TOS, the parties indicated in § 9 below (Parties to this DPA) are agreeing to the SCCs and all appendixes attached thereto. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between this DPA and the Standard Contractual Clauses in Exhibit 1, the SCCs shall prevail.

The SCCs apply only to Personal Data that is transferred from the European Economic Area (EEA) to outside the EEA, either directly or via onward transfer, to any country or recipient: (i) not recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data (as described in the EU Data Protection Directive), and (ii) not covered by a suitable framework recognized by the relevant authorities or courts as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, including but not limited to binding corporate rules for processors.

9. Parties to this DPA

This DPA is an amendment to and forms part of the TOS.  Upon the incorporation of this DPA into the TOS (i) Controller and the HubSpot entity that are each a party to the TOS are also each a party to this DPA, and (ii) HubSpot, Inc. is a party to this DPA, but only with respect to agreement to the SCCs pursuant to § 8 of the DPA, this section § 9 of the DPA, and to the SCCs themselves.

If HubSpot, Inc. is not a party to the TOS, the section of the TOS entitled ‘Limitation of Liability’ shall apply as between Controller and HubSpot, Inc., and in such respect any references to ‘HubSpot’, ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’ shall include both HubSpot, Inc. and the HubSpot entity that is a party to the TOS.

The legal entity agreeing to this DPA as Controller represents that it is authorized to agree to and enter into this DPA for, and is agreeing to this DPA solely on behalf of, the Controller

Liability

  1. The parties agree that any data subject, who has suffered damage as a result of any breach of the obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 by any party or subprocessor is entitled to receive compensation from the data exporter for the damage suffered.
  2. If a data subject is not able to bring a claim for compensation in accordance with paragraph 1 against the data exporter, arising out of a breach by the data importer or his subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11, because the data exporter has factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent, the data importer agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data importer as if it were the data exporter, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by contract of by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity.
    The data importer may not rely on a breach by a subprocessor of its obligations in order to avoid its own liabilities.
  3. If a data subject is not able to bring a claim against the data exporter or the data importer referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2, arising out of a breach by the subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 because both the data exporter and the data importer have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, the subprocessor agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data subprocessor with regard to its own processing operations under the Clauses as if it were the data exporter or the data importer, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.

Clause 7

Mediation and jurisdiction

1. The data importer agrees that if the data subject invokes against it third-party beneficiary rights and/or claims compensation for damages under the Clauses, the data importer will accept the decision of the data subject:

(a) to refer the dispute to mediation, by an independent person or, where applicable, by the              supervisory authority;

(b) to refer the dispute to the courts in the Member State in which the data exporter is established.


2. The parties agree that the choice made by the data subject will not prejudice its substantive or procedural rights to seek remedies in accordance with other provisions of national or international law. 

Clause 8

Cooperation with supervisory authorities

  1. The data exporter agrees to deposit a copy of this contract with the supervisory authority if it so requests or if such deposit is required under the applicable data protection law.
  2. The parties agree that the supervisory authority has the right to conduct an audit of the data importer, and of any subprocessor, which has the same scope and is subject to the same conditions as would apply to an audit of the data exporter under the applicable data protection law.
  3. The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter about the existence of legislation applicable to it or any subprocessor preventing the conduct of an audit of the data importer, or any subprocessor, pursuant to paragraph 2. In such a case the data exporter shall be entitled to take the measures foreseen in Clause 5(b).

Clause 9

Governing law

The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.

Clause 10

Variation of the contract

The parties undertake not to vary or modify the Clauses. This does not preclude the parties from adding clauses on business related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Clause.

Clause 11

Subprocessing

  1. The data importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the data exporter under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the data exporter. Where the data importer subcontracts its obligations under the Clauses, with the consent of the data exporter, it shall do so only by way of a written agreement with the subprocessor which imposes the same obligations on the subprocessor as are imposed on the data importer under the Clauses. Where the subprocessor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations under such written agreement the data importer shall remain fully liable to the data exporter for the performance of the subprocessor’s obligations under such agreement.
  2. The prior written contract between the data importer and the subprocessor shall also provide for a third-party beneficiary clause as laid down in Clause 3 for cases where the data subject is not able to bring the claim for compensation referred to in paragraph 1 of Clause 6 against the data exporter or the data importer because they have factually disappeared or have ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent and no successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law. Such third-party liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
  3. The provisions relating to data protection aspects for subprocessing of the contract referred to in paragraph 1 shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
  4. The data exporter shall keep a list of subprocessing agreements concluded under the Clauses and notified by the data importer pursuant to Clause 5(j), which shall be updated at least once a year. The list shall be available to the data exporter’s data protection supervisory authority.

Clause 12

Obligation after the termination of personal data-processing services

  1. The parties agree that on the termination of the provision of data-processing services, the data importer and the subprocessor shall, at the choice of the data exporter, return all the personal data transferred and the copies thereof to the data exporter or shall destroy all the personal data and certify to the data exporter that it has done so, unless legislation imposed upon the data importer prevents it from returning or destroying all or part of the personal data transferred. In that case, the data importer warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data transferred and will not actively process the personal data transferred anymore.
  2. The data importer and the subprocessor warrant that upon request of the data exporter and/or of the supervisory authority, it will submit its data-processing facilities for an audit of the measures referred to in paragraph 1.

Appendix 2 to the Standard Contractual Clauses

This Appendix forms part of the Clauses.

Description of the technical and organisational security measures implemented by the data importer in accordance with Clauses 4(d) and 5(c) (or document/legislation attached):

HubSpot currently observes the security practices described in this Appendix 2. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary otherwise agreed to by Data Exporter, HubSpot may modify or update these practices at its discretion provided that such modification and update does not result in a material degradation in the protection offered by these practices. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings as set forth in the HubSpot Customer Terms of Service.

a) Access Control

i)      Preventing Unauthorized Product Access

Outsourced processing: HubSpot hosts its Service with outsourced, US-based data center providers. Additionally, HubSpot maintains contractual relationships with vendors in order to provide the Service. HubSpot relies on contractual agreements, privacy policies, and vendor compliance programs in order to assure the protection of data processed or stored by these vendors.

Physical and environmental security: HubSpot hosts its product infrastructure with multi-tenant, outsourced data center providers. The physical and environmental security controls are audited for SOC 2 Type II and ISO 27001 compliance, among other certifications.

Authentication: HubSpot implemented a uniform password policy for its customer products. Customers who interact with the products via the user interface must authenticate before accessing non-public customer data.

Authorization: Customer data is stored in multi-tenant storage systems accessible to Customers via only application user interfaces and application programming interfaces. Customers are not allowed direct access to the underlying application infrastructure. The authorization model in each of HubSpot’s products is designed to ensure that only the appropriately assigned individuals can access relevant features, views, and customization options. Authorization to data sets is performed through validating the user’s permissions against the attributes associated with each data set.

Application Programming Interface (API) access: Public product APIs may be accessed using an API key or through Oauth authorization.

ii)     Preventing Unauthorized Product Use

HubSpot implements industry standard access controls and detection capabilities for the internal networks that support its products.

Access controls: Network access control mechanisms are designed to prevent network traffic using unauthorized protocols from reaching the product infrastructure. The technical measures implemented differ between data center providers and include Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) implementations and security group assignment, along with traditional enterprise firewall and Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) assignment.

Intrusion detection and prevention: HubSpot implemented a Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution to protect all hosted sites as well as HubSpot Service access. The WAF is designed to identify and prevent attacks against publicly available network services.

Static code analysis: Security reviews of code stored in HubSpot’s source code repositories is performed, checking for coding best practices and identifiable software flaws.

Penetration testing: HubSpot maintains relationships with industry recognized penetration testing service providers for four annual penetration tests. The intent of the penetration tests is to identify and resolve foreseeable attack vectors and potential abuse scenarios.

Bug bounty: A bug bounty program invites and incentivizes independent security researchers to ethically discover and disclose security flaws. HubSpot implemented a bug bounty program in an effort to widen the available opportunities to engage with the security community and improve the product defenses against sophisticated attacks.

iii)    Limitations of Privilege & Authorization Requirements

Product access: A subset of HubSpot’s employees have access to the products and to customer data via controlled interfaces. The intent of providing access to a subset of employees is to provide effective customer support, to troubleshoot potential problems, and to detect and respond to security incidents. Access is enabled through “just in time” requests for access; all such requests are logged. Employees are granted access by role, and reviews of high risk privilege grants are initiated daily. Employee roles are reviewed at least once every six months.

Background checks: All HubSpot employees undergo an extensive 3rd party background check prior to being extended an employment offer. All employees are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with company guidelines, non-disclosure requirements, and ethical standards.

b) Transmission Control

In-transit: HubSpot makes HTTPS encryption (also referred to as SSL or TLS) available on every one of its login interfaces and for free on every customer site hosted on the HubSpot products. HubSpot’s HTTPS implementation uses industry standard algorithms and certificates.

At-rest: HubSpot stores user passwords following policies that follow at least industry standard practices for security.  

c) Input Control

Detection: HubSpot designed its infrastructure to log extensive information about the system behavior, traffic received, system authentication, and other application requests. Internal systems aggregated log data and alert appropriate employees of malicious, unintended, or anomalous activities. HubSpot personnel, including security, operations, and support personnel, are responsive to known incidents.

Response and tracking: HubSpot maintains a record of known security incidents that includes description, dates and times of relevant activities, and incident disposition. Suspected and confirmed security incidents are investigated by security, operations, or support personnel; and appropriate resolution steps are identified and documented. For any confirmed incidents, HubSpot will take appropriate steps to minimize product and Customer damage or unauthorized disclosure.

Communication: If HubSpot becomes aware of unlawful access to Customer data stored within its products, HubSpot will: 1) notify the affected Customers of the incident; 2) provide a description of the steps HubSpot is taking to resolve the incident; and 3) provide status updates to the Customer contact, as HubSpot deems necessary. Notification(s) of incidents, if any, will be delivered to one or more of the Customer’s contacts in a form HubSpot selects, which may include via email or telephone.

d) Job Control

The HubSpot Marketing Product provides a solution for Customers to conduct  their marketing and sales activities. Customers control the data types collected by and stored within their portals. HubSpot never sells personal data to any third party.

Terminating Customers: Core Customer Data in active (i.e., primary) databases is purged upon a customer’s written request, or for our web-based inbound marketing application available at http://www.hubspot.com, 90 days after a customer terminates all agreements for such products with HubSpot. Marketing information stored in backups, replicas, and snapshots is not automatically purged, but instead ages out of the system as part of the data lifecycle. HubSpot reserves the right to alter data purging period in order to address technical, compliance, or statutory requirements. “Core Customer Data” includes (i) the name, email address, phone number, online user name(s), telephone number, and similar information voluntarily submitted by visitors to your landing pages on the Subscription Service, and (ii) data related to your visitors’ social media activities to the extent such activities can be tied to an identifiable individual; and excludes (i) analytics data, (ii) Customer Materials, (iii) aggregated anonymous data, (iv) logs, archived data or back-up data files, (v) other data that is not reasonably practicable for us to delete and (v) other data that is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to Customer. 

e) Availability Control

Infrastructure availability: The data center providers use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure a minimum of 99.95% uptime. The providers maintain a minimum of N+1 redundancy to power, network, and HVAC services.

Fault tolerance: Backup and replication strategies are designed to ensure redundancy and fail-over protections during a significant processing failure. Customer data is backed up to multiple durable data stores and

replicated across multiple data centers and availability zones.

Online replicas and backups: Where feasible, production databases are designed to replicate data between no less than 1 primary and 1 secondary database. All databases are backed up and maintained using at least industry standard methods.

HubSpot’s products are designed to ensure redundancy and seamless failover. The server instances that support the products are also architected with a goal to prevent single points of failure. This design assists HubSpot operations in maintaining and updating the product applications and backend while limiting downtime.

f) Separation in Processing

HubSpot’s collection of personal data from its Customers is to provide and improve our Sales and Marketing Products. HubSpot does not use that data for other purposes that would require separate processing.
