How We Share Personal Data

Amway does not sell, rent, or trade your personal data. We do share your personal data among us as joint controllers and with:

Related entities operating direct selling businesses around the world under the company name Amway, to whom it is reasonably necessary or desirable for Amway to disclose personal data;
Other ABOs in order to support your business with Amway;
Providers of infrastructure- or platform- or software-as-a-service solutions, software development services, information system maintenance services, record management services or marketing services;
Logistics providers;

Government authorities or other third parties, if required or allowed otherwise by law or reasonably necessary to protect the rights, legal interests, property, or safety of you, others, or ourselves.

International Data Transfers

We transfer the personal data we collect about you to entities within the Amway organisation, as well as to third-party service providers that process personal data on our behalf. Some of these companies and service providers are located in countries other than the country in which the personal data was originally collected. The laws of those countries may not have the same level of data protection as the country in which you initially provided the personal data. When we transfer your personal data to other countries, we will protect that personal data as described in this Privacy Notice and in accordance with applicable law.

For personal data originating from the EEA that are transferred to countries that have not been recognised by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection, we have put in place contractual safeguards (based on the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for data transfers outside the EEA) or rely on an equivalent legal mechanism to ensure that your personal data remain protected. For more information on the safeguards we have put in place to protect your personal data when transferred outside the EEA (including how to obtain a copy or consult these safeguards), please contact us at

How We Protect Personal Data

We maintain appropriate technical and organisational security safeguards designed to protect the personal data we process against accidental, unlawful or unauthorised destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use.

How Long We Retain Personal Data

We store personal data as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collect the data (see above under “How We Use the Personal Data We Collect”), except if required or allowed otherwise by law. Please contact us using our contact details provided below if you have any questions with respect to our data retention practices.

Updates to this Privacy Notice

Amway may update this Privacy Notice from time to time. We will notify you of any significant changes to this Privacy Notice on the relevant Amway websites, in official Amway publications, or through other appropriate communication channels. All changes shall be effective from the date of publication, unless otherwise provided in the notification.

Your Rights

Subject to the relevant legislative provisions, you have the following data protection rights:

The right to access
You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not your personal data are being processed and, where this is the case, access to the personal data. You also have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal data.

The right to rectification
You have the right to ask us to rectify personal data about you that you think are inaccurate. You also have the right to ask us to complete data you think are incomplete. This right always applies.

The right to erasure
This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your data where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using the data. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions, e.g. if we have a legal obligation to keep your data.

The right to restriction of processing
You have the right to ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances.

The right to data portability
This right only applies to personal data you have given us. You have the right to ask that we transfer the data you gave us to another organisation or give the data to you.

The right to withdraw consent
Where you have provided us with consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of the processing that has been carried out based on your consent prior to the withdrawal.

The right to object
When we process your personal data for purposes of pursuing our legitimate interests, you have the right to object to such processing at any time. If you object, we will stop the processing unless we have strong and legitimate reasons to continue using your data.

If you would like to learn more about any of these rights, please contact us at

The right to lodge a complaint
If you have concerns about the way we handle or process your personal data, please contact our Privacy Office (contact details below) who will investigate the matter and report back to you. If you are still not satisfied after our response, depending on the law of the country where you live or work, you may have the right to complain to a data-protection regulator.
