Opsgenie privacy policy

Effective starting: January 1, 2020

At OpsGenie, we recognize that your privacy is important.  We are posting this Privacy Policy to establish our commitment to your privacy and the security of your information.  Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By accessing or using our website, services or mobile apps, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and consented to this Privacy Policy. 

Scope of this policy


This Privacy Policy explains how OpsGenie collects, uses and shares information about you when you interact with OpsGenie, including through our website, services and mobile apps, to the extent that we will be the controller of such information (that is, where we have the control over deciding why and how to process the information).  It lets you know what rights and choices you have regarding our use of your information and how you can access and update that information.

European Union residents

If you are a resident of the European Union, then, to the extent that the information we collect and use is your personal data, OpsGenie will process and transfer your personal data when we have an adequate legal basis to do so.  This means we collect, use and transfer your personal data where:

  • you give us consent to collect, use or transfer the personal data for a specific purpose
  • we need to process your personal data to provide you with our services
  • we need to process your personal data to comply with a legal or contractual obligation
  • our collection, use or transfer of your personal data satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests)

Information processed on behalf of a customer

When we process information on behalf of an OpsGenie customer in connection with its access to and use of our services, we do so solely in accordance with the customer’s instructions and the provisions of the customer’s agreement with OpsGenie regarding customer’s use of OpsGenie’s products and services.  The customer, and not OpsGenie, is processing the customer data as the controller of such customer data (that is, the customer decides why and how to process such information). OpsGenie is processing the customer data only as a processor of the customer data (that is, OpsGenie only processes such information on behalf of the customer based on the customer’s instructions).

This means we have no direct relationship with the customer’s employees or other individuals with whom the customer may interact with respect to OpsGenie’s services.  If you are such an employee or individual and are seeking access to, or would like to correct, amend or delete customer data that is your personal data, then please contact the customer directly.  If you contact us regarding such requests and queries, we will direct you to our customer. If you are a resident of the European Union, the foregoing does not limit your rights to make certain requests related to your personal data as provided for in the “Your Rights and Choices” section of this Privacy Policy below.

Third party service providers as controllers

Some of our third party service providers may collect and process some of your information also as controllers of such information (that is, the third party service provider will also decide why and how to process such information).  In such cases, the collection and processing of your information by the third party service provider will be as specified by, and in accordance with, the privacy notice and practices of such third party service provider. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and practices of such third party service providers to understand their information practices.  Third party service providers who may be processing some of your information as an additional controller of such information include:

  • Stripe, Inc.  We use Stripe, Inc. to perform some of our payment processing services.  Credit card information may be collected and processed by Stripe, Inc. for certain purposes as a controller of such information as specified in its privacy notice and practices.  Stripe, Inc. is currently certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1 and its privacy notice may be found at
