What are Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs)?
OnJun 4, 2021, an updated version of the Standard Contractual Clauses (or SCCs) was published by lawmakers in the European Union (EU) and they gave all companies untilSep 27, 2021, to abide by these new regulations.
The SCCs allow companies providing services to European residents to transfer data from the EU to countries like the US in compliance with GDPR. OnSep 23, 2021Atlassian will be publishing a new version of our Data Processing Addendum that includes these new SCCs for customers to begin signing.
Note : all existing contracts have until Dec 2022 to move over to these new terms but customers can choose to sign this new DPA at any time after Sep 23, 2021.
The updated SCCs require Atlassian to:
Provide more detail to our customers about where, when, and why of how we handle their personal data so our customers can assess risks to their data posed by laws outside of the EU
This includes our key suppliers (subprocessors) that we pass along personal data in order to provide the products and services we do to customers.
Commit to greater transparency about the protective measures against government requests Atlassian may receive for a customer’s personal data
Offer the necessary materials for customers to do a risk assessment, commonly referred to as a data transfer impact assessment (DTIA)
Why are we doing it and why does this matter?
TLDR: To continue to abide by GDPR, customers that do business in the EU must abide by these regulations.
To address all of these requirements, we’ve updated/added the following pages:
