How to add subprocessors on ZenDPA

We will show you how you can create and share your subprocessor list using ZenDPA.

Sign Data Processing Agreements with your subprocessors

Start by signing Data Processing Agreements (DPAs) with all of your subprocessors. Some subprocessors, like AWS, already include DPAs in their Terms of Service. These can be easily downloaded directly from their websites. For other vendors, you might need to reach out to their support teams to secure a DPA.

If you're unsure what subprocessors are, this article can help clarify things for you.
