Security & privacy

Your security, safety, and privacy is our top priority — and we build Notion accordingly.



Notion takes a security-by-design approach to protecting your data. Our team continues to make investments so you can use Notion with confidence.

Security infrastructure

Notion’s infrastructure is designed with layers of protection to help ensure your data is secure while transmitted, stored, or processed. Protections include but are not limited to encryption, least privilege access, secure software development, and a public bug bounty program.

Operational security

Our information security team continuously implements new security controls and monitors Notion for malicious activity across our infrastructure, networks, and assets.

Product security

Notion provides a robust set of in product data protection and admin controls for greater visibility and control over our data. Enterprise admins can deploy Notion to their organizations with SSO via SAML 2.0, provision users through SCIM, and track activity with the audit log features. Enterprise admins can also fine tune permission controls and guests, and manage team organizations.



Notion maintains a comprehensive privacy compliance program and is committed to partnering with its customers and vendors on privacy compliance efforts. This page highlights some of the key aspects of our program.

How we handle your data

At Notion our team is dedicated to developing and implementing data privacy processes and safeguards that meet industry standards and best practices. We conduct ongoing training for our teams to ensure that they are up to speed with developments in legislation and essential privacy and security practices. Every Notion employee and contractor signs up to non-disclosure terms to maintain the confidentiality and security of your data. Notion also holds any vendors that handle personal data to the same data management, security, and privacy practices and standards to which we hold ourselves.


At Notion we strive to keep all of our agreements up to date with the latest regulations and industry standards. Our Master Subscription Agreement and Data Processing Addendum describe in detail Notion’s data privacy processes, standards, safeguards and our compliance with data protection legislation. To ensure that our terms track with the GDPR, CCPA and other global privacy standards we continually have our terms assessed by leading privacy experts in multiple jurisdictions.

Data governance

Data governance relates to the policies and procedures that dictate how data is procured and used throughout its life cycle. From creation and collection to processing, distribution, storage and deletion. Notion’s commitment to data governance is key to keeping our users data secure, private, accurate, and accessible.


At Notion we want to be as transparent as possible with our customers about how we collect, process, store, and use their personal data. In order to achieve this Notion maintains comprehensive and detailed policies regarding how we handle your personal information. These policies describe in detail how our users can exercise their rights with regard to their data.


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive data protection law that governs the collection of and use of personal data of EU residents, and that allows data subjects to exercise control over their data. As the GDPR is widely considered to be the most stringent global privacy standard, we have mapped our privacy program to the GDPR and other global privacy regulations.
