Q: Why does ForgeRock need Privacy Related terms?

A: Privacy is at the core of ForgeRock’s business model and is considered to be an essential part of everyday business.  Additionally, ForgeRock is obliged to impose specific terms on its Partners under global privacy laws.

Q: What is a sub-processor?
