2. Nature of Relationship.  The parties acknowledge and agree that the Controller is a controller and Processor is a processor under the European Data Protection Laws.

3. Controller Representations and Warranties.  The Controller represents and warrants to Processor that, prior to transferring any Controller Personal Data to Processor for processing, asking Processor to collect Controller Personal Data on the Controller’s behalf in connection with the Services, or otherwise providing any personal data to Processor in connection with Processor’s performance of the Services, the Controller has provided to the applicable data subjects every type of notice and obtained from the applicable data subjects every type of consent in each case as required by the European Data Protection Laws pertaining to such disclosures of personal data to or collection of personal data on the Controller’s behalf by Processor, including, but not limited to, in connection with Processor’s processing of the Special Categories of Personal Data set forth in Appendix 2 to the Standard Contractual Clauses attached hereto. The Controller shall indemnify and hold harmless Processor from and against all claims, liabilities, fines, penalties, costs or other expenses, of any kind or nature whatsoever, arising out of the Controller’s breach of this Section 3.

 

​4. Processing of Personal Data.  Processor shall process Controller Personal Data only on documented instructions from Controller (including, for the avoidance of doubt, as described in the Agreement), unless Processor is required to do so by applicable law to which Processor is subject, in which case Processor shall inform the Controller of that legal requirement before processing (unless the applicable law prohibits providing such information to the Controller on important grounds of public interest).  The Controller shall ensure that its instructions comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable in relation to the Controller Personal Data, and that the processing of Controller Personal Data in accordance with the Controller’s instructions will not cause Processor to be in breach of the European Data Protection Laws applicable with respect to the Controller Personal Data.

5. Confidentiality of Personal Data.  Processor shall ensure that all persons (including Subprocessors) authorized to process Controller Personal Data have committed to keeping such Controller Personal Data confidential or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality with respect to such Controller Personal Data.

 

6. Security of Personal Data.  Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of data subjects, Processor shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security for Controller Personal Data appropriate to the risk, including  in particular from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to Controller Personal Data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.  Such measures shall include, at a minimum, the measures described in Appendix 2 to the Standard Contractual Clauses attached hereto, and shall include inter alia as appropriate: (a) the pseudonymization or encryption of Controller Personal Data, (b) the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of systems and services used to process Controller Personal Data, (c) the ability to restore the availability and access to Controller Personal Data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident, and (d) a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organizational measures for ensuring the security of the processing. 

 

7. Assistance and Cooperation.

(a) Processor shall provide, at the Controller’s cost, reasonable assistance to Controller in performing any data protection impact assessments and/or relevant consultations with supervisory authorities or other competent data privacy authorities, which Controller reasonably considers to be required by GDPR Articles 35 or 36 and under other European Data Protection Laws, in each case solely in relation to Processing of Controller Personal Data by, and taking into account the nature of the Processing and information available to, Processor and its Subprocessors.

 

(b) Taking into account the nature of the Processing and the information available to Processor, Processor shall, at the Controller’s cost, assist Controller as Controller may reasonably require, including by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, in ensuring compliance with the Controller’s obligations pursuant to GDPR Article 32.

 

(c) Taking into account the nature of the Processing, Processor shall, at the Controller’s cost, assist Controller as Controller may reasonably require, including by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, to enable the Controller to comply with requests by data subjects to exercise their rights under GDPR.  Processor shall: (i) promptly notify the Controller if Processor receives a request from a data subject under GDPR with respect to Controller Personal Data, and (ii) not respond to that request except on the written instructions of the Controller or as required by applicable law to which Processor is subject, in which case Processor shall (to the extent permitted by applicable law) inform Controller of that legal requirement before Processor responds to the request.

 

 

8. Information and Audit Rights.  To the extent such information is reasonably available to Processor, Processor shall make available to the Controller on the Controller’s reasonable request all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with this DPA, and, at the Controller’s cost, allow for and cooperate with audits, including inspections, by the Controller or an auditor appointed by Controller in relation to the Processing of the Controller Personal Data by Processor, subject to the following:

 

(a) Information disclosed to the Controller or its auditor or that is otherwise revealed in such audit shall be the Confidential Information of Processor under the confidentiality provisions of the Agreement or nondisclosure agreement between the parties that Processor may require to be executed in connection with such disclosure (“NDA”).

 

(b) Audits may not be conducted more than once per year or more frequently: (i) to the extent required by a supervisory authority, or (ii) in the event of and in connection with a particular personal data breach.

 

(c) Audits shall be conducted only during Processor’s normal business hours and only with reasonable advance written notice of not less than 15 business days (except in the event of a personal data breach or if the Controller has a reasonable basis to believe (supported by substantial evidence) that Processor may be in material non-compliance with this DPA, in which case advance notice shall be not less than 72 hours).

 

(d) No such audit shall include access to Processor’s (or any Subprocessors’) facilities or systems (e.g., computing infrastructure, servers, data storage mechanisms and infrastructure, audit logs, activity reports, system configuration, etc.) without Processor’s prior written consent, except to the extent required by a supervisory authority.

In lieu of an audit, upon reasonable request by the Controller, but no more than once per year, Processor agrees to complete, within thirty (30) days of receipt, an audit questionnaire provided by the Controller regarding Processor’s compliance with this DPA, of reasonable length and required detail (not to exceed a reasonably-estimated five person-hours to complete unless otherwise agreed to and subject to the payment of additional fees set forth in a separate agreement by the parties), provided that any such questionnaire responses shall be the Processor’s Confidential Information under the confidentiality provisions of the Agreement or the NDA.

9. Subprocessors

(a) Processor shall not engage any Subprocessor to provide the Services under the Agreement (or otherwise process Controller Personal Data under the Agreement) without written authorization from the Controller.  Processor reserves the right to maintain its Subprocessor list through means such as publication of its Subprocessor list online.  The Controller hereby provides written authorization for Processor to engage the sub-processors listed in Appendix 2 to the Standard Contractual Clauses (the “Subprocessor List”). The Controller further acknowledges and agrees that its continued access to the Subprocessor List constitutes notice of on-going intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of Subprocessors, that it is the Controller’s responsibility to check the Subprocessor List frequently to review any such changes, and that access to the Subprocessor List provides the Controller the opportunity to object to any such changes.   Controller may object to Processor’s use of a new or replacement Subprocessor by notifying Processor promptly in writing (and in any event within ten business days) after first becoming aware of the new or replacement Subprocessor.  In the event Controller reasonably objects to a new or replacement Subprocessor appearing on the Subprocessor List after the date of execution of this DPA by the parties, as permitted in the preceding sentence, Processor will use reasonable efforts to make available to Controller a change in the Services or recommend a commercially reasonable change to Controller’s configuration or use of the Services to avoid processing of Controller Personal Data by the objected-to new or replacement Subprocessor without unreasonably burdening Controller. If Processor is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period of time, which shall not exceed thirty (30) days, Controller may terminate the Agreement without liability with respect only to those Services which cannot be provided by Processor without the use of the objected-to new or replacement Subprocessor by providing written notice to Processor and Controller shall have no obligation to make any payment of subscription fees for the remaining portion of the subscription term under the Agreement.  

 

(b) Where Processor engages a Subprocessor for carrying out specific processing activities on behalf of the Controller with respect to Controller Personal Data, Processor shall by contract impose on the Subprocessor substantially the same data protection obligations as set forth in this DPA.  Where the Subprocessor fails to fulfil such data protection obligations, Processor shall remain fully liable to the Controller for the performance of that Subprocessor’s obligations. 

10. Return or Deletion of Controller Personal Data. 

(a) Subject to Sections 10(b), 10(c) and 10(d) below, Processor shall at Controller’s request within thirty (30) days after the date of cessation of Services involving the Processing of Controller Personal Data (the “Cessation Date”), either; (i) return to the Controller the Controller Personal Data in a mutually-agreeable format; or (ii) delete and ensure the deletion of all copies of Controller Personal Data.

(b) Processor (and Processor’s Subprocessors) may retain Controller Personal Data to the extent and for such period as is required by applicable law, rule or regulation, provided that Processor shall ensure the continued confidentiality of all such Controller Personal Data, and shall ensure that the Controller Personal Data are only accessed and used for the purpose(s) specified in the applicable law, rule or regulation requiring its retention.

 

(c) Processor may retain and use for its business purposes any aggregated or de-identified data (i.e., data that is no longer personal data) created from or using Controller Personal Data, during and after termination of the Agreement.

 

(d) The Processor’s obligations under this Section 10 shall be subject to any agreed-upon post-termination data retrieval provisions in the Agreement.

 

 

11. Restricted Transfers. The Controller (as “Data Exporter”) and Processor (as “Data Importer”) hereby enter into the Standard Contractual Clauses in respect of any Restricted Transfer from Controller to Processor. Processor shall ensure that before it commences any Restricted Transfer to a Subprocessor, the Subprocessor will enter into the Standard Contractual Clauses (or variations of those Standard Contractual Clauses made under Section 13(e) or as otherwise proposed by the Subprocessor or Processor as long as such variations are compliant with GDPR).

12. Personal Data Breach.  If any Controller Personal Data is subject to any personal data breach Processor shall, upon becoming aware of the personal data breach, without undue delay notify the Controller take reasonable steps to contain and counteract the personal data breach and minimize any damage resulting from the personal data breach, and provide Controller with sufficient information to allow the Controller to meet any obligations to report to supervising authorities or inform the applicable data subjects of the personal data breach to the extent required under the European Data Protection Laws. Processor shall co-operate, at the Controller’s cost, to assist Controller in the investigation, mitigation and remediation of each such personal data breach.

 

13. Miscellaneous.

(a) Subject to the following sentence of this Section 13(a), in the event of inconsistencies between the provisions of this DPA and the Agreement, the provisions of this DPA shall prevail.  In any event, Processor’s liability under this DPA, including for breach or other failure under this DPA by Processor or its Subprocessors, shall be subject to the exclusions and limitations of liability provided for in the Agreement.

 

(b) To the extent this DPA is not governed exclusively by the European Data Protection Laws, it will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and the state in which Processor has its principal place of business.

 

(c) This DPA constitutes the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements, oral or written.

 

(d) Except as expressly stated in the European Data Protection Laws or the Standard Contractual Clauses attached hereto, the parties to this DPA do not intend to create any rights in any third parties. 

 

(e) The parties agree that, to the extent required under the European Data Protection Laws, such as due to legislative changes, court decisions, and/or to reflect measures or guidance from supervisory authorities, including, without limitation, the adoption of standards for contracts with processors according to GDPR Article 28(7) or (8) or the invalidation, amendment, replacement or repeal of a decision adopted by the EU Commission in relation to international data transfers on the basis of GDPR Article 45(3) or Article 46(2) GDPR or on the basis of Article 25(6) or 26(4) of EU Directive 95/46/EC, such as, in particular, with respect to the Standard Contractual Clauses or similar transfer mechanisms, the Controller may request reasonable changes or additions to this DPA to reflect applicable requirements.  If the Controller makes a request to change or supplement this DPA pursuant to this Section 13(e), the Controller and Processor shall in good faith negotiate such changes and additions (including, where applicable, providing for Controller’s reimbursement of Processor’s costs and expenses for undertaking additional obligations) and the Processor shall not unreasonably withhold or delay agreement to any variations to this DPA.
