We understand that trust is the foundation of our business and we value our customers’ confidence in our ability to keep their data secure.

Fostering a culture of privacy

At PayPal, we continuously evaluate our approach to privacy and identify ways we can best serve our customers and further protect their data. Our Global Privacy Program is based on eight data management principles that serve as the basis for enterprise-wide standards for the collection, use and sharing of personal data. We also have dedicated teams integrated throughout our business and a Global Privacy team, led by our Chief Privacy Officer, who work toward instilling a culture of “Data Hygiene by Default” and “Privacy by Design.” Through role-based privacy training, the Global Privacy team is responsible for helping encourage and cultivate PayPal’s privacy-centric culture throughout the Company, from the Board of Directors to newly acquired companies and their employees.

Employing a privacy-first approach

We believe that fulfilling our commitment to privacy means providing our customers with information that clearly describes our privacy practices and offering them meaningful choices to direct how their data is used. We are always looking to innovate in ways that best serve our customers, while protecting their data.
