Subpoena Protocol

The following legal protocols are in place for the security of our community and to facilitate compliance.

Serving U.S. and International Civil Subpoenas

We comply with civil subpoenas that have been validly served in compliance with the law that applies to the subpoena, provided that the court issuing the subpoena has jurisdiction to issue the subpoena to Upwork. You should refer to the statutes governing service of the subpoena and serve the subpoena according to one of the authorized methods.

Upwork’s corporate headquarters are located at the following:

Upwork Inc.
2625 Augustine Dr., Suite 601
Santa Clara, CA 95054

If mail service is permitted, subpoenas should be sent to “ATTN: Legal.” For faster responses, please include an email contact address, especially for international subpoenas.

We reserve the right to object to valid subpoenas and withhold all or some responsive documents for any reason permitted by law.

Criminal Subpoenas, Court Orders, Warrants, and Governmental Information Requests

When we receive a request from a government for information about a user or account, our team reviews the request to make sure it satisfies legal requirements and Upwork’s policies. Generally speaking, for us to produce any data, the request must be made in writing, signed by an authorized official of the requesting agency and issued under an appropriate law. If we believe a request is overly broad, we'll seek to narrow it.

Criminal subpoenas, court orders, warrants, and other lawful governmental requests should be directed to the following:

Upwork Inc.
ATTN: Legal
2625 Augustine Dr., Suite 601
Santa Clara, CA 95054
