Data Processing Agreement

  1. The customer agreeing to these terms (“Customer”), and Revevol France SAS or Revevol Italia SRL, as applicable, ("Supplier") have entered into an agreement under which Supplier has agreed to provide certain Services, which may be amended from time to time (the “Agreement”).

  2. For the purpose of this DPA, the entity acting as Supplier is the entity designated in the Agreement to which this DPA is incorporated by reference. This Data Processing Agreement and its appendices (the “DPA”), which is between Supplier and Customer (each, a “Party”, and together, “the Parties”), forms part of the Agreement and is the Parties’ agreement related to Supplier’s processing of Customer Personal Data. This DPA might be updated from time to time and will be effective and replace any previously applicable data processing agreement as from the Terms Effective Date (as defined below). To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the terms of this DPA and the remainder of the Agreement, the terms of this DPA will govern. Definitions are provided in Section 27 below.

  3. The Parties acknowledge and agree that (a) under the Data Protection Legislation, Supplier is a Data Processor of Customer Personal Data listed in Appendix 1, (b) Customer subscribing to Supplier’s services may be a Data Controller or Data Processor, as applicable, of Customer Personal Data and (c ) each Party will comply with the obligations applicable to it under the Data Protection Legislation with respect to the Processing of that Customer Personal Data.

  4. Details on categories of data processed and data subjects concerned, Processing operations, location of Processing, and purpose and duration of Processing are provided in Appendix 1.

  5. Duration. This DPA will take effect on the Agreement Effective Date and, notwithstanding expiry of the Term, remains in effect until, and automatically expire upon, deletion of all Customer Personal Data by Supplier as described in this DPA.

  6. Scope. The Parties acknowledge and agree that the Data Protection Legislation will apply to the Processing of Customer Personal Data if: (a) the Processing is carried out in the context of the activities of an establishment of Customer in the territory of the EEA/Switzerland/the United Kingdom; and/or (b) the Customer Personal Data relates to Data Subjects who are in the EEA/ Switzerland/the United Kingdom and the Processing relates to the offering of goods or services in the EEA/Switzerland/the United Kingdom or the monitoring of their behaviour in the EEA/Switzerland/the United Kingdom.

  7. Non-European Data Protection Legislation. The Parties acknowledge and agree that Non-European Data Protection Legislation may also apply to the Processing of Customer Personal Data. Except to the extent this DPA states otherwise, the terms of this DPA will apply irrespective of whether the Data Protection Legislation or Non-European Data Protection Legislation applies to the Processing of Customer Personal Data by Supplier. If Non-European Data Protection Legislation applies to either Party’s Processing of Customer Personal Data, the Parties acknowledge and agree that the relevant Party will comply with any obligations applicable to it under that legislation with respect to the Processing of that Customer Personal Data.

  8. Third-party Data Controller. If the Data Protection Legislation applies to the Processing of Customer Personal Data and Customer is a Data Processor acting under the instructions of a third-party Data Controller, Customer warrants to Supplier that Customer’s instructions and actions with respect to that Customer Personal Data, including its appointment as Data Processor have been authorized by the Third Party Data Controller and shall provide evidence thereof, at Supplier’s request.

  9. Customer’s Instructions. By entering into this DPA, Customer instructs Supplier to Process Customer Personal Data only in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation and/or Non-European Data Protection Legislation, as applicable: (a) to provide the Services and related technical support; (b) as further specified by Customer or required by Customer’s use of the Services and related technical support; (c ) as documented in the form of the Agreement, including this DPA; and (d) as further documented in any other legitimate and written instructions given by Customer and acknowledged by Supplier as constituting instructions for purposes of this DPA. As from the Effective Date, Supplier will comply with the Customer’s instructions provided in this Section, including with regard to Personal Data transfers, in accordance with Section 21. Supplier shall not process, transfer, modify, amend or alter Customer Personal Data or disclose or permit the disclosure of the Customer Personal Data to any third-party other than in accordance with the Customer’s instructions (whether in the Agreement or otherwise) unless EU law or EU Member State law to which Processor is subject requires other Processing of Customer Personal Data by Supplier, in which case Supplier will inform Customer prior to implement the Processing (unless that law prohibits Processor from doing so on important grounds of public interest) via the Notification Email Address. Supplier agrees to immediately inform the Customer if, in its opinion, an instruction infringes the applicable Data Protection Legislation.

  10. Deletion During Term. Supplier will enable Customer to delete Customer Personal Data during the Term in a manner consistent with the functionality of the Services. If Customer or an End User uses the Services to delete any Customer Personal Data during the Term and the Customer Personal Data cannot be recovered by Customer or an End User, this use will constitute a Customer’s Instruction to Supplier to delete the relevant Customer Personal Data from Supplier’s Systems in accordance with applicable Data Protection Legislation. Supplier will comply with this instruction as soon as reasonably practicable and within a maximum period of 90 days, unless EU or EU Member State law requires or justifies that such Customer Personal Data be retained by Supplier for a longer period of time.

  11. Deletion on Term Expiry. Subject to Section 12 (Deferred Deletion Instructions), upon expiry of the Term, Customer shall instruct Supplier to delete all Customer Personal Data (including existing copies) from Supplier’s Systems in accordance with applicable Data Protection Legislation. Processor will comply with this Instruction as soon as reasonably practicable and within a maximum period of 90 days, unless EU or EU Member State law requires or justifies that such Customer Personal Data be retained by Processor for a longer period of time. Without prejudice to Section 20 (Data Subjects Rights and Requests) Customer acknowledges and agrees that Customer will be responsible for exporting, before the Term expires, any Customer Data it wishes to retain afterwards.

  12. Deferred Deletion Instruction. To the extent any Customer Personal Data covered by the deletion instruction described in Section 11 (Deletion on Term Expiry) is also processed, when the Term under Section 11 expires, in relation to an agreement between Customer and Supplier having a continuing Term, such deletion instruction will only take effect with respect to such Customer Personal Data when the continuing Term expires. For clarity, in the event of a Deferred Deletion Instruction, this DPA will continue to apply to such Customer Personal Data until its deletion by Supplier.

  13. Supplier Security Measure. Supplier will implement and maintain technical and organizational measures to protect Customer Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access as described in Appendix 2 (the “Security Measures”). As described in Appendix 2, the Security Measures include measures to help ensure ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of Supplier’s Systems, restore timely access to Customer Personal Data following a Data Incident and regular testing of effectiveness. Supplier may update or modify the Security Measures in Appendix 2 from time to time provided that such updates and modifications do not result in the degradation of the overall security of the Services or Supplier’s Systems. Customer acknowledges that Customer Data will be hosted in a Third-Party Service Provider data centres, by Third-Party Service Provider and/or one or more of its affiliated entities (collectively, “Third-Party Service Providers”) (and not by the Supplier) and, as a consequence, that most of the technical and organisational security measures relating to the Customer Personal Data (as notably referred to in Appendix 2) will be provided by the applicable Third-Party Service Provider under its own liability. Accordingly, and notwithstanding any other provision in the Agreement, the Supplier disclaims any and all responsibility in relation to any acts and/or omission of Third-Party Service Provider, including notably (without limitation) for such Third-Party Service Provider’s technical and organisational security measures as listed for information purposes only and without any representation in Appendix 2. Customer agrees to disclaim Supplier’s liability, in the event of any non-compliance of the Third-Party Service Provider under the applicable agreement.

  14. Security Compliance by Processor. Supplier will take appropriate steps to ensure compliance with the Security Measures by its employees, contractors, agents and Subprocessors to the extent applicable to their scope of performance, including ensuring that all persons authorized to process Customer Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality, and that such personnel has undertaken appropriate training in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation.

  15. Processor Security Assistance. Customer agrees that Supplier will (taking into account the nature of the Processing of Customer Personal Data and the information available to Supplier) assist Customer in ensuring compliance with Customer’s obligations in respect of security of Customer Personal Data and Customer Personal Data breaches, in particular in the event of a Data Incident, including if applicable Customer’s obligations pursuant to Articles 32 to 34 (inclusive) of the GDPR, by: (a) implementing and maintaining the Security Measures in accordance with Section 13 (Supplier’s Security Measures); (b) complying with the terms of Section 16 (Data Incidents).

  16. Data Incidents. If Supplier becomes aware of a Data Incident, Supplier will: (a) notify Customer of the Data Incident promptly and without undue delay; and (b) promptly take reasonable steps to minimize harm and secure Customer Personal Data. Notifications will describe, to the extent possible, details of the Data Incident, including steps taken to mitigate the potential risks and steps Supplier recommends Customer to take to address the Data Incident. Notification(s) of any Data Incident(s) will be delivered to the Notification Email Address or, at Supplier’s discretion, by direct communication (for example, by phone call or an in-person meeting). Customer is solely responsible for ensuring that the Notification Email Address is current and valid at any time. Supplier will not assess the contents of Customer Data in order to identify information subject to any specific legal requirements. Customer is solely responsible for complying with notification obligations provided by Data Protection Legislation or Non-European Data Protection Legislation, as applicable to Customer, and fulfilling any third party notification obligations related to any Data Incident(s). Supplier’s notification of or response to a Data Incident under this Section 16 (Data Incidents) will not be construed as an acknowledgement by Supplier of any fault or liability with respect to the Data Incident.

  17. Customer’s Security Responsibilities and Assessment. Customer agrees that, without prejudice to Supplier’s obligations under Sections 13-15 (Supplier’s Security Measures, Controls and Assistance) and Section 16 (Data Incidents): (a) Customer is solely responsible for its use of the Services, including: (i) making appropriate use of the Services to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk in respect of the Customer Data; (ii) securing the account authentication credentials, systems and devices Customer uses to access the Services; and (iii) backing up Customer Data; and (b) Supplier has no obligation to protect Customer Data that Customer elects to store or transfer outside of Processor’s and its Subprocessors’ systems (for example, offline or on-premise storage, or Customer’s Third-Party Service Provider). Customer is solely responsible for evaluating whether the Services, the Security Measures and Supplier’s commitments under Sections 13-17 meet Customer’s needs, including with respect to any security obligations of Customer under the Data Protection Legislation and/or Non-European Data Protection Legislation, as applicable. Customer acknowledges and agrees that (taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of the Processing of Customer Personal Data as well as the risks to individuals) the Security Measures implemented and maintained by Supplier as set out in Section 13 (Supplier’s Security Measures) and Appendix 2 provide a level of security appropriate to the risk in respect of the Customer Data.

  18. Audits of compliance. If the Data Protection Legislation applies to the Processing of Customer Personal Data, Supplier will allow Customer or an independent auditor appointed by Customer to conduct audits (including inspections) to verify Supplier’s compliance with its obligations relating to Customer Personal Data under this DPA. Supplier will contribute to such audits as described in this Section 18 (Audits of Compliance). If Customer decides to conduct an audit as described above, then Customer shall bear all costs and expenses connected therewith, such as the auditors’ fees, costs of transport, legal fees, etc. If Customer has entered into SCCs as described in Section 21 (Personal Data Transfer), Supplier will, without prejudice to any audit rights of a Supervisory Authority under such SCCs, allow Customer or an independent auditor appointed by Customer to conduct audits as described in the SCCs. In any event, any audit mandated by Customer pursuant to this Section 18 shall not impair or otherwise trouble Supplier’s usual course of business.

  19. Impact Assessments and Consultations. Customer agrees that Supplier will (taking into account the nature of the Processing and the information available to Processor) provide Customer with reasonable assistance in ensuring compliance with any obligations of Customer relating to Customer Personal Data in respect of data protection impact assessments and prior consultation, including if applicable Customer’s obligations pursuant to Articles 35 and 36 of the GDPR, to the extent necessary information is available to Supplier.

  20. Data Subject Rights and Requests. During the Term, Supplier will, in a manner consistent with the functionality of the Services, enable Customer to access, rectify and restrict Processing of Customer Personal Data, or erase Customer Personal Data, as applicable, including via the deletion functionality provided by Supplier as described in Section 10 (Deletion During Term), and to export Customer Personal Data, as required by Data Protection Legislation and/or Non-European Data Protection Legislation, as applicable. During the Term, if Supplier receives any request from a Data Subject in relation to Customer Personal Data, Supplier will advise the Data Subject to submit his/her request to Customer or directly report such request to Customer using the Notification Email Address or any other communication channel, and Customer will be responsible for responding to any such request including, where necessary, by using the functionality of the Services. Customer agrees that (taking into account the nature of the Processing of Customer Personal Data) Supplier will provide Customer with reasonable assistance in fulfilling any obligation to respond to requests by Data Subjects, including if applicable Customer’s obligation to respond to requests for exercising the Data Subject’s rights laid down in Chapter III of the GDPR, by complying with the commitments set out in this Section 20, to the extent Supplier is able to respond to such requests. Customer shall be responsible to the extent legally permitted for any costs and expenses arising from any such assistance by Supplier.

  21. Personal Data Transfer. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Supplier may, subject to this Section 21 (Personal Data Transfer), store and process Customer Data in the United States and any other country outside the EEA in which Supplier or Subprocessors maintain facilities. If the storage and/or Processing of Customer Personal Data involves a Restricted Transfer, Supplier and Customer hereby agree to enter into the applicable SCCs enclosed in Appendix 4 or Appendix 5, as applicable, and such terms are hereby incorporated by reference into this DPA. To the extent there is any conflict between any term of the SCCs and any other part of this DPA or the Agreement, the term of the SCCs shall prevail. Any Restricted Transfers shall be made in accordance with such SCCs. Supplier will impose under a written agreement the same obligations on the Subprocessors, if any, as are imposed on the Processor under this DPA and the SCCs. Where the Subprocessor fails to fulfill its data protection obligations under such written agreement, the Supplier shall remain fully liable to the Customer for the performance of the Subprocessor’s obligations under such agreement. In addition, where provision of the Services involves a Restricted Transfer from the Supplier to a Subprocessor located outside EU, Customer (on behalf of itself and its relevant Affiliates) mandates Supplier, which mandate Supplier hereby accepts, to promptly enter, on Customer’s own name and behalf as Data Exporter (Subprocessor being the Data Importer), into aData processing agreement with any Subprocessor engaged by Supplier in such Restricted Transfer, before such Subprocessor first Processes Customer Personal Data, so as to ensure that any such Restricted Transfer complies with the Data Protection Legislation. Such Personal Data processing agreement shall (a) meet the conditions set out in Article 28 of the GDPR and offer at least the same level of protection for Customer Personal Data as those set out in this DPA and (b) incorporate SCCs. When Supplier uses Third Party Service Provider Cloud Platform to host and/or provide the Services, information about the locations of Supplier’s Third Party Service Providers’ data centers is available at the Third Party Service Providers’ pages specifying servers locations and may be updated by the Third Party Service Provider from time to time. If Customer has entered into SCCs as described in this Section 21 (Personal Data Transfer), Supplier will, notwithstanding any term to the contrary in the Agreement, ensure that any disclosure of Customer Personal Data, and any notifications relating to any such disclosures, will be made in accordance with such SCCs. If at any time, a Supervisory Authority or a court with competent jurisdiction over a Party mandates that transfers from Controllers /Processors in the EU or the UK to Processors established outside the EU or the UK must be subject to specific additional safeguards (including but not limited to specific technical and organisational measures), the Parties shall work together in good faith to implement such safeguards and ensure that any transfer of Customer Personal Data is conducted with the benefit of such additional safeguards. In the same manner, if any Supervisory Authority adopts revised standard contractual clauses for the matters addressed in this DPA and Customer notifies Supplier that it wishes to incorporate any element of those standard contractual clauses into this DPA, Supplier and Customer may agree to amend this DPA to incorporate any proposed changes as reasonably required by the newly adopted standard contractual clauses. In the event that the SCCs enclosed in Appendix 4 and Appendix 5 are deemed to no longer be a valid transfer mechanism to legitimise Restricted Transfers, Supplier and Customer agree to amend this DPA in order to establish a legitimate transfer of Customer Personal Data outside the EEA.

  22. Subprocessors. Customer hereby specifically authorizes the engagement of Supplier’s Affiliates as Subprocessors pursuant to the Agreement and for the Term. In addition, Customer hereby generally authorizes the engagement of any other third parties as Subprocessors (“Third Party Service Provider Subprocessors”), subject to Supplier’s compliance with this Section 22. Customer hereby authorizes all “Subprocessors” listed in Appendix 3. If Customer has entered into SCCs as described in Section 21 (Personal Data Transfer), the above authorizations will constitute Customer’s prior written consent to the subcontracting by Supplier of the Processing of Customer Personal Data if such consent is required under the SCCs and Data Protection Legislation and/or Non-European Data Protection Legislation, as applicable. Information about Subprocessors is available in Appendix 3 and may be updated by Supplier from time to time in accordance with this DPA. When engaging any Subprocessor, Supplier will: (a) ensure via a written legal instrument or contract that: (i) the Subprocessor only accesses and processes Customer Personal Data to the extent required to perform the obligations subcontracted to it, and does so in accordance with the Agreement (including this DPA) and any SCCs entered into as described in Section 21 (Personal Data Transfer), as applicable; and (ii) if the GDPR applies to the Processing of Customer Personal Data, the data protection obligations set out in Article 28(3) of the GDPR, as described in this DPA, are mandated by said legal instrument or contract on the Subprocessor; and (b) remain fully liable for all obligations subcontracted to, and all acts and omissions of, the Subprocessor. When any Third-Party Subprocessor not listed in Appendix 3 at the Agreement Effective Date is engaged during the Term, Supplier will, at least thirty (30) days before the new Third-Party Subprocessor processes any Customer Personal Data, inform Customer of the engagement (including the name and location of the relevant Third-Party Subprocessor and the activities it will perform) by sending an email to the Notification Email Address. Customer may object to any new Third-Party Subprocessor by terminating the Agreement immediately upon written notice to Supplier, provided that Customer sends such notice within thirty (30) days of being informed of the engagement of the Third-Party Subprocessor. This termination right is Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy if Customer objects to any new Third-Party Subprocessor.

  23. Processing Records. Customer acknowledges that Supplier is required under the GDPR to: (a) collect and maintain records of certain information, including the name and contact details of any Data Processor and/or Data Controller on behalf of which Processor is acting and, where applicable, of such Data Processor’s or Data Controller’s local representative and data protection officer, as well as the categories of Processing carried out on behalf of each Data Controller, where possible a general description of the technical and organisational security measures; and (b) make such information available to the Supervisory Authorities.

  24. California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). To the extent that the CCPA applies to the collection, retention, use, and disclosure of Customer’s Personal Information (as defined in the CCPA) to provide the Services to Customer pursuant to the Agreement, the Parties acknowledge and agree that Supplier does not receive any Personal Information from Customer (“Licensee Personal Information”) as consideration for the Services or other items provided by Supplier to Customer. Except as expressly set forth in the Agreement, Supplier shall not (a) have, derive or exercise any rights or benefits regarding Customer Personal Information, (b) Sell Customer Personal Information, or (c) collect, retain, share or use Customer Personal Information except as necessary for the sole purpose of performing the Services and professional services connected therewith if applicable or as otherwise permitted under the CCPA. Supplier agrees to refrain from taking any action that would cause any transfers of Customer Personal Information, either to Supplier or from Supplier, to qualify as a Sale of Personal Information under the CCPA. Supplier understands and will comply with the restrictions set forth in this Section and the applicable requirements of the CCPA. For the purposes of this Section, Supplier is a Service Provider and the terms “Personal Information”, “Sell”, “Sale”, and “Service Provider” shall have the same meaning as in the CCPA. If any US authority adopts revised CCPA provisions for the matters addressed in this DPA and Customer notifies Supplier that it wishes to incorporate any element of those revised provisions into this DPA, Supplier and Customer may agree to amend this DPA to incorporate any proposed changes as reasonably required by the newly adopted provisions.

  25. Agreed Liability Cap. The cap of liability set forth in the Agreement governing the provision of Services to which this DPA is part applies to any violation of the provisions of this DPA or any damage which may result from the Supplier’s or its Affiliate’s non-compliance with Data Protection Legislation. Nothing in this Section 25 (Agreed Liability Cap) will affect the remaining terms of the Agreement relating to liability (including any specific exclusions from any limitation of liability).

  26. Miscellaneous.

    1. Neither the rights nor the obligations of any Party may be assigned in whole or in part without the prior written consent of the other Party, provided, however, that this DPA may be transferred or assigned in the event of a restructuring or change of control affecting a Party hereto.
    2. In the event of any dispute arising between the Parties in connection with this DPA, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to resolve their dispute. If the dispute cannot be resolved by good faith negotiations by the Parties, the dispute shall be finally settled by a public court relevant for the seat of the Supplier.
    3. This DPA is governed by the laws of France, without reference to its rules governing conflicts of laws.
    4. Should any provision of this DPA be deemed invalid or unenforceable by a competent court, then the remainder of this DPA shall remain valid and in force. The invalid or unenforceable provision shall be either (i) amended as necessary to ensure its validity and enforceability, while preserving the Parties’ intentions as closely as possible or, if this is not possible, (ii) construed in a manner as if the invalid or unenforceable part had never been contained therein.

SECTION II – OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES 

Clause 8 

Data protection safeguards 

The data exporter warrants that it has used reasonable efforts to determine that the data  importer is able, through the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational  measures, to satisfy its obligations under these Clauses.  

8.1 Instructions 

(a) The data importer shall process the personal data only on documented instructions  from the data exporter. The data exporter may give such instructions throughout the  duration of the contract. 

(b) The data importer shall immediately inform the data exporter if it is unable to follow  those instructions.  

8.2 Purpose limitation 

The data importer shall process the personal data only for the specific purpose(s) of the  transfer, as set out in Annex I.B, unless on further instructions from the data exporter.  

8.3 Transparency  

On request, the data exporter shall make a copy of these Clauses, including the Appendix as  completed by the Parties, available to the data subject free of charge. To the extent necessary  to protect business secrets or other confidential information, including the measures described  in Annex II and personal data, the data exporter may redact part of the text of the Appendix to  these Clauses prior to sharing a copy, but shall provide a meaningful summary where the data  subject would otherwise not be able to understand the its content or exercise his/her rights. On  request, the Parties shall provide the data subject with the reasons for the redactions, to the  extent possible without revealing the redacted information. This Clause is without prejudice to  the obligations of the data exporter under Articles 13 and 14 of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679.  

8.4 Accuracy 

If the data importer becomes aware that the personal data it has received is inaccurate, or has  become outdated, it shall inform the data exporter without undue delay. In this case, the data  importer shall cooperate with the data exporter to erase or rectify the data.

8.5 Duration of processing and erasure or return of data 

Processing by the data importer shall only take place for the duration specified in Annex I.B.  After the end of the provision of the processing services, the data importer shall, at the choice  of the data exporter, delete all personal data processed on behalf of the data exporter and  certify to the data exporter that it has done so, or return to the data exporter all personal data  processed on its behalf and delete existing copies. Until the data is deleted or returned, the  data importer shall continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses. In case of local laws  applicable to the data importer that prohibit return or deletion of the personal data, the data  importer warrants that it will continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses and will only  process it to the extent and for as long as required under that local law. This is without  prejudice to Clause 14, in particular the requirement for the data importer under Clause 14(e)  to notify the data exporter throughout the duration of the contract if it has reason to believe  that it is or has become subject to laws or practices not in line with the requirements under  Clause 14(a).  

8.6 Security of processing 

(a) The data importer and, during transmission, also the data exporter shall implement  appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of the data,  including protection against a breach of security leading to accidental or unlawful  destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access to that data (hereinafter  “personal data breach”). In assessing the appropriate level of security, the Parties  shall take due account of the state of the art, the costs of implementation, the nature,  scope, context and purpose(s) of processing and the risks involved in the processing  for the data subjects. The Parties shall in particular consider having recourse to  encryption or pseudonymisation, including during transmission, where the purpose of  processing can be fulfilled in that manner. In case of pseudonymisation, the  additional information for attributing the personal data to a specific data subject  shall, where possible, remain under the exclusive control of the data exporter. In  complying with its obligations under this paragraph, the data importer shall at least  implement the technical and organisational measures specified in Annex II. The data  importer shall carry out regular checks to ensure that these measures continue to  provide an appropriate level of security.  

(b) The data importer shall grant access to the personal data to members of its personnel  only to the extent strictly necessary for the implementation, management and  monitoring of the contract. It shall ensure that persons authorised to process the  personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an  appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.  

(c ) In the event of a personal data breach concerning personal data processed by the data  importer under these Clauses, the data importer shall take appropriate measures to  address the breach, including measures to mitigate its adverse effects. The data  importer shall also notify the data exporter without undue delay after having become  aware of the breach. Such notification shall contain the details of a contact point  where more information can be obtained, a description of the nature of the breach  (including, where possible, categories and approximate number of data subjects and  personal data records concerned), its likely consequences and the measures taken or  proposed to address the breach including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its  possible adverse effects. Where, and in so far as, it is not possible to provide all information at the same time, the initial notification shall contain the information  then available and further information shall, as it becomes available, subsequently be  provided without undue delay.  

(d) The data importer shall cooperate with and assist the data exporter to enable the data  exporter to comply with its obligations under Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679, in  particular to notify the competent supervisory authority and the affected data  subjects, taking into account the nature of processing and the information available to  the data importer. 

8.7 Sensitive data 

Where the transfer involves personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions,  religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, or biometric data  for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or a person’s  sex life or sexual orientation, or data relating to criminal convictions and offences (hereinafter  “sensitive data”), the data importer shall apply the specific restrictions and/or additional  safeguards described in Annex I.B. 

8.8 Onward transfers 

The data importer shall only disclose the personal data to a third party on documented  instructions from the data exporter. In addition, the data may only be disclosed to a third party  located outside the European Union4(in the same country as the data importer or in another  third country, hereinafter “onward transfer”) if the third party is or agrees to be bound by  these Clauses, under the appropriate Module, or if:  

(i) the onward transfer is to a country benefitting from an adequacy decision  pursuant to Article 45 of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679 that covers the onward  transfer;  

(ii) the third party otherwise ensures appropriate safeguards pursuant to Articles 46 or 47 Regulation of (EU) 2016/ 679 with respect to the processing in question; 

(iii) the onward transfer is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of  legal claims in the context of specific administrative, regulatory or judicial  proceedings; or 

(iv) the onward transfer is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data  subject or of another natural person. 

Any onward transfer is subject to compliance by the data importer with all the other  safeguards under these Clauses, in particular purpose limitation. 

8.9 Documentation and compliance 

(a) The data importer shall promptly and adequately deal with enquiries from the data  exporter that relate to the processing under these Clauses.  

(b) The Parties shall be able to demonstrate compliance with these Clauses. In particular,  the data importer shall keep appropriate documentation on the processing activities  carried out on behalf of the data exporter. 

(c ) The data importer shall make available to the data exporter all information necessary  to demonstrate compliance with the obligations set out in these Clauses and at the  data exporter’s request, allow for and contribute to audits of the processing activities  covered by these Clauses, at reasonable intervals or if there are indications of non 

compliance. In deciding on a review or audit, the data exporter may take into account  relevant certifications held by the data importer.  

(d) The data exporter may choose to conduct the audit by itself or mandate an  independent auditor. Audits may include inspections at the premises or physical  facilities of the data importer and shall, where appropriate, be carried out with  reasonable notice.  

(e) The Parties shall make the information referred to in paragraphs (b) and (c ),  including the results of any audits, available to the competent supervisory authority  on request. 

Clause 9 

Use of sub-processors 

(a) The data importer has the  data exporter’s general authorisation for the engagement of sub-processor(s) from an  agreed list. The data importer shall specifically inform the data exporter in writing of  any intended changes to that list through the addition or replacement of subprocessors at least thirty (30) days in advance, thereby giving the data exporter  sufficient time to be able to object to such changes prior to the engagement of the  sub-processor(s). The data importer shall provide the data exporter with the  information necessary to enable the data exporter to exercise its right to object.  

(b) Where the data importer engages a sub-processor to carry out specific processing  activities (on behalf of the data exporter), it shall do so by way of a written contract  that provides for, in substance, the same data protection obligations as those binding  the data importer under these Clauses, including in terms of third-party beneficiary  rights for data subjects. The Parties agree that, by complying with this Clause, the  data importer fulfils its obligations under Clause 8.8. The data importer shall ensure  that the sub-processor complies with the obligations to which the data importer is  subject pursuant to these Clauses. 

(c ) The data importer shall provide, at the data exporter’s request, a copy of such a sub processor agreement and any subsequent amendments to the data exporter. To the  extent necessary to protect business secrets or other confidential information,  including personal data, the data importer may redact the text of the agreement prior to sharing a copy. 

(d) The data importer shall remain fully responsible to the data exporter for the  performance of the sub-processor’s obligations under its contract with the data  importer. The data importer shall notify the data exporter of any failure by the sub processor to fulfil its obligations under that contract.  

(e) The data importer shall agree a third-party beneficiary clause with the sub-processor  whereby - in the event the data importer has factually disappeared, ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent - the data exporter shall have the right to terminate the  sub-processor contract and to instruct the sub-processor to erase or return the  personal data. 

Clause 10 

Data subject rights 

(a) The data importer shall promptly notify the data exporter of any request it has  received from a data subject. It shall not respond to that request itself unless it has been authorised to do so by the data exporter. 

(b) The data importer shall assist the data exporter in fulfilling its obligations to respond  to data subjects’ requests for the exercise of their rights under Regulation (EU)  2016/,679. In this regard, the Parties shall set out in Annex II the appropriate  technical and organisational measures, taking into account the nature of the  processing, by which the assistance shall be provided, as well as the scope and the  extent of the assistance required.  

(c ) In fulfilling its obligations under paragraphs (a) and (b), the data importer shall  comply with the instructions from the data exporter. 

Clause 11 

Redress 

(a) The data importer shall inform data subjects in a transparent and easily accessible  format, through individual notice or on its website, of a contact point authorised to  handle complaints. It shall deal promptly with any complaints it receives from a data  subject.  

(b) In case of a dispute between a data subject and one of the Parties as regards  compliance with these Clauses, that Party shall use its best efforts to resolve the issue  amicably in a timely fashion. The Parties shall keep each other informed about such  disputes and, where appropriate, cooperate in resolving them.  

(c ) Where the data subject invokes a third-party beneficiary right pursuant to Clause 3,  the data importer shall accept the decision of the data subject to:  

(i) lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in the Member State of his/her  habitual residence or place of work, or the competent supervisory authority  pursuant to Clause 13; 

(ii) refer the dispute to the competent courts within the meaning of Clause 18.

SECTION III – LOCAL LAWS AND OBLIGATIONS IN CASE OF ACCESS BY  PUBLIC AUTHORITIES 

Clause 14 

Local laws and practices affecting compliance with the Clauses 

(a) The Parties warrant that they have no reason to believe that the laws and practices in  the third country of destination applicable to the processing of the personal data by  the data importer, including any requirements to disclose personal data or measures  authorising access by public authorities, prevent the data importer from fulfilling its  obligations under these Clauses. This is based on the understanding that laws and  practices that respect the essence of the fundamental rights and freedoms and do not  exceed what is necessary and proportionate in a democratic society to safeguard one  of the objectives listed in Article 23(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679, are not in  contradiction with these Clauses. 

(b) The Parties declare that in providing the warranty in paragraph (a), they have taken  due account in particular of the following elements: 

(i) the specific circumstances of the transfer, including the length of the  processing chain, the number of actors involved and the transmission channels  used; intended onward transfers; the type of recipient; the purpose of  processing; the categories and format of the transferred personal data; the  economic sector in which the transfer occurs; the storage location of the data  transferred;  

(ii) the laws and practices of the third country of destination– including those  requiring the disclosure of data to public authorities or authorising access by  such authorities – relevant in light of the specific circumstances of the transfer,  and the applicable limitations and safeguards;

(iii) any relevant contractual, technical or organisational safeguards put in place to supplement the safeguards under these Clauses, including measures applied  during transmission and to the processing of the personal data in the country of  destination. 

(c ) The data importer warrants that, in carrying out the assessment under paragraph (b),  it has made its best efforts to provide the data exporter with relevant information and  agrees that it will continue to cooperate with the data exporter in ensuring  compliance with these Clauses. 

(d) The Parties agree to document the assessment under paragraph (b) and make it  available to the competent supervisory authority on request. 

(e) The data importer agrees to notify the data exporter promptly if, after having agreed  to these Clauses and for the duration of the contract, it has reason to believe that it is or has become subject to laws or practices not in line with the requirements under  paragraph (a), including following a change in the laws of the third country or a  measure (such as a disclosure request) indicating an application of such laws in  practice that is not in line with the requirements in paragraph (a).

(f) Following a notification pursuant to paragraph (e), or if the data exporter otherwise  has reason to believe that the data importer can no longer fulfil its obligations under  these Clauses, the data exporter shall promptly identify appropriate measures (e.g.  technical or organisational measures to ensure security and confidentiality) to be  adopted by the data exporter and/or data importer to address the situation. The data exporter  shall suspend the data transfer if it considers that no appropriate safeguards for such  transfer can be ensured, or if instructed by the  competent supervisory authority to do so. In this case, the data exporter shall be  entitled to terminate the contract, insofar as it concerns the processing of personal  data under these Clauses. If the contract involves more than two Parties, the data  exporter may exercise this right to termination only with respect to the relevant  Party, unless the Parties have agreed otherwise. Where the contract is terminated  pursuant to this Clause, Clause 16(d) and (e) shall apply.  

Clause 15 

Obligations of the data importer in case of access by public authorities 

15.1 Notification 

(a) The data importer agrees to notify the data exporter and, where possible, the data  subject promptly (if necessary with the help of the data exporter) if it:  

(i) receives a legally binding request from a public authority, including judicial  authorities, under the laws of the country of destination for the disclosure of  personal data transferred pursuant to these Clauses; such notification shall  include information about the personal data requested, the requesting authority,  the legal basis for the request and the response provided; or 

(ii) becomes aware of any direct access by public authorities to personal data  transferred pursuant to these Clauses in accordance with the laws of the  country of destination; such notification shall include all information available  to the importer. 

(b) If the data importer is prohibited from notifying the data exporter and/or the data  subject under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer agrees to use  its best efforts to obtain a waiver of the prohibition, with a view to communicating as  much information as possible, as soon as possible. The data importer agrees to  document its best efforts in order to be able to demonstrate them on request of the  data exporter.  

(c ) Where permissible under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer  agrees to provide the data exporter, at regular intervals for the duration of the  contract, with as much relevant information as possible on the requests received (in  particular, number of requests, type of data requested, requesting authority/ies,  whether requests have been challenged and the outcome of such challenges, etc.).  

(d) The data importer agrees to preserve the information pursuant to paragraphs (a) to (c )  for the duration of the contract and make it available to the competent supervisory  authority on request.  

(e) Paragraphs (a) to (c ) are without prejudice to the obligation of the data importer  pursuant to Clause 14(e) and Clause 16 to inform the data exporter promptly where it  is unable to comply with these Clauses. 

15.2 Review of legality and data minimisation 

(a) The data importer agrees to review the legality of the request for disclosure, in  particular whether it remains within the powers granted to the requesting public  authority, and to challenge the request if, after careful assessment, it concludes that  there are reasonable grounds to consider that the request is unlawful under the laws  of the country of destination, applicable obligations under international law and principles of international comity. The data importer shall, under the same  conditions, pursue possibilities of appeal. When challenging a request, the data  importer shall seek interim measures with a view to suspending the effects of the  request until the competent judicial authority has decided on its merits. It shall not  disclose the personal data requested until required to do so under the applicable  procedural rules. These requirements are without prejudice to the obligations of the  data importer under Clause 14(e). 

(b) The data importer agrees to document its legal assessment and any challenge to the  request for disclosure and, to the extent permissible under the laws of the country of  destination, make the documentation available to the data exporter. It shall also make  it available to the competent supervisory authority on request. 

(c ) The data importer agrees to provide the minimum amount of information permissible  when responding to a request for disclosure, based on a reasonable interpretation of  the request. 

SECTION IV – FINAL PROVISIONS 

Clause 16 

Non-compliance with the Clauses and termination 

(a) The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter if it is unable to comply  with these Clauses, for whatever reason.  

(b) In the event that the data importer is in breach of these Clauses or unable to comply  with these Clauses, the data exporter shall suspend the transfer of personal data to the  data importer until compliance is again ensured or the contract is terminated. This is  without prejudice to Clause 14(f). 

(c ) The data exporter shall be entitled to terminate the contract, insofar as it concerns the  processing of personal data under these Clauses, where:

(d) Personal data that has been transferred prior to  the termination of the contract pursuant to paragraph (c ) shall at the choice of the  data exporter immediately be returned to the data exporter or deleted in its entirety.  The same shall apply to any copies of the data.The data importer shall certify the deletion  of the data to the data exporter. Until the data is deleted or returned, the data importer  shall continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses. In case of local laws  applicable to the data importer that prohibit the return or deletion of the transferred  personal data, the data importer warrants that it will continue to ensure compliance  with these Clauses and will only process the data to the extent and for as long as  required under that local law.  

(e) Either Party may revoke its agreement to be bound by these Clauses where (i) the  European Commission adopts a decision pursuant to Article 45(3) of Regulation  (EU) 2016/ 679 that covers the transfer of personal data to which these Clauses apply;  or (ii) Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679 becomes part of the legal framework of the country  to which the personal data is transferred. This is without prejudice to other  obligations applying to the processing in question under Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679.

SECTION II – OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES 

Clause 8 

Data protection safeguards 

The data exporter warrants that it has used reasonable efforts to determine that the data  importer is able, through the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational  measures, to satisfy its obligations under these Clauses.  

8.1 Instructions 

(a) The data exporter has informed the data importer that it acts as processor under the  instructions of its controller(s), which the data exporter shall make available to the  data importer prior to processing.  

(b) The data importer shall process the personal data only on documented instructions  from the controller, as communicated to the data importer by the data exporter, and  any additional documented instructions from the data exporter. Such additional  instructions shall not conflict with the instructions from the controller. The controller  or data exporter may give further documented instructions regarding the data  processing throughout the duration of the contract. 

(c ) The data importer shall immediately inform the data exporter if it is unable to follow  those instructions. Where the data importer is unable to follow the instructions from  the controller, the data exporter shall immediately notify the controller. 

(d) The data exporter warrants that it has imposed the same data protection obligations  on the data importer as set out in the contract or other legal act under Union or  Member State law between the controller and the data exporter. 

8.2 Purpose limitation 

The data importer shall process the personal data only for the specific purpose(s) of the  transfer, as set out in Annex I.B., unless on further instructions from the controller, as  communicated to the data importer by the data exporter, or from the data exporter. 

8.3 Transparency  

On request, the data exporter shall make a copy of these Clauses, including the Appendix as  completed by the Parties, available to the data subject free of charge. To the extent necessary  to protect business secrets or other confidential information, including personal data, the data  exporter may redact part of the text of the Appendix prior to sharing a copy, but shall provide  a meaningful summary where the data subject would otherwise not be able to understand its  content or exercise his/her rights. On request, the Parties shall provide the data subject with  the reasons for the redactions, to the extent possible without revealing the redacted  information. 

8.4 Accuracy 

If the data importer becomes aware that the personal data it has received is inaccurate, or has  become outdated, it shall inform the data exporter without undue delay. In this case, the data  importer shall cooperate with the data exporter to rectify or erase the data. 

8.5 Duration of processing and erasure or return of data 

Processing by the data importer shall only take place for the duration specified in Annex I.B.  After the end of the provision of the processing services, the data importer shall, at the choice  of the data exporter, delete all personal data processed on behalf of the controller and certify to the data exporter that it has done so, or return to the data exporter all personal data  processed on its behalf and delete existing copies. Until the data is deleted or returned, the  data importer shall continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses. In case of local laws  applicable to the data importer that prohibit return or deletion of the personal data, the data  importer warrants that it will continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses and will only  process it to the extent and for as long as required under that local law. This is without  prejudice to Clause 14, in particular the requirement for the data importer under Clause 14(e)  to notify the data exporter throughout the duration of the contract if it has reason to believe  that it is or has become subject to laws or practices not in line with the requirements under  Clause 14(a).  

8.6 Security of processing 

(a) The data importer and, during transmission, also the data exporter shall implement  appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of the data,  including protection against a breach of security leading to accidental or unlawful  destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access to that data (hereinafter  “personal data breach”). In assessing the appropriate level of security, they shall take  due account of the state of the art, the costs of implementation, the nature, scope,  context and purpose(s) of processing and the risks involved in the processing for the  data subject. The Parties shall in particular consider having recourse to encryption or  pseudonymisation, including during transmission, where the purpose of processing can be fulfilled in that manner. In case of pseudonymisation, the additional  information for attributing the personal data to a specific data subject shall, where  possible, remain under the exclusive control of the data exporter or the controller. In  complying with its obligations under this paragraph, the data importer shall at least  implement the technical and organisational measures specified in Annex II. The data  importer shall carry out regular checks to ensure that these measures continue to  provide an appropriate level of security.  

(b) The data importer shall grant access to the data to members of its personnel only to  the extent strictly necessary for the implementation, management and monitoring of  the contract. It shall ensure that persons authorised to process the personal data have  committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory  obligation of confidentiality. 

(c ) In the event of a personal data breach concerning personal data processed by the data  importer under these Clauses, the data importer shall take appropriate measures to  address the breach, including measures to mitigate its adverse effects. The data  importer shall also notify, without undue delay, the data exporter and, where  appropriate and feasible, the controller after having become aware of the breach.  Such notification shall contain the details of a contact point where more information  can be obtained, a description of the nature of the breach (including, where possible,  categories and approximate number of data subjects and personal data records  concerned), its likely consequences and the measures taken or proposed to address  the data breach, including measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects. Where,  and in so far as, it is not possible to provide all information at the same time, the  initial notification shall contain the information then available and further  information shall, as it becomes available, subsequently be provided without undue  delay.  

(d) The data importer shall cooperate with and assist the data exporter to enable the data  exporter to comply with its obligations under Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679, in  particular to notify its controller so that the latter may in turn notify the competent  supervisory authority and the affected data subjects, taking into account the nature of  processing and the information available to the data importer. 

8.7 Sensitive data 

Where the transfer involves personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions,  religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, or biometric data  for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or a person’s  sex life or sexual orientation, or data relating to criminal convictions and offences (hereinafter  “sensitive data”), the data importer shall apply the specific restrictions and/or additional  safeguards set out in Annex I.B. 

8.8 Onward transfers 

The data importer shall only disclose the personal data to a third party on documented  instructions from the controller, as communicated to the data importer by the data exporter. In  addition, the data may only be disclosed to a third party located outside the European Union (in the same country as the data importer or in another third country, hereinafter “onward  transfer”) if the third party is or agrees to be bound by these Clauses, under the appropriate  Module, or if:  

(i) the onward transfer is to a country benefitting from an adequacy decision  pursuant to Article 45 of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679 that covers the onward  transfer; 

(ii) the third party otherwise ensures appropriate safeguards pursuant to Articles 46  or 47 of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679; 

(iii) the onward transfer is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of  legal claims in the context of specific administrative, regulatory or judicial  proceedings; or 

(iv) the onward transfer is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data  subject or of another natural person. 

Any onward transfer is subject to compliance by the data importer with all the other  safeguards under these Clauses, in particular purpose limitation. 

8.9 Documentation and compliance 

(a) The data importer shall promptly and adequately deal with enquiries from the data  exporter or the controller that relate to the processing under these Clauses.  

(b) The Parties shall be able to demonstrate compliance with these Clauses. In particular,  the data importer shall keep appropriate documentation on the processing activities  carried out on behalf of the controller. 

(c ) The data importer shall make all information necessary to demonstrate compliance  with the obligations set out in these Clauses available to the data exporter, which  shall provide it to the controller. 

(d) The data importer shall allow for and contribute to audits by the data exporter of the  processing activities covered by these Clauses, at reasonable intervals or if there are  indications of non-compliance. The same shall apply where the data exporter  requests an audit on instructions of the controller. In deciding on an audit, the data  exporter may take into account relevant certifications held by the data importer.  

(e) Where the audit is carried out on the instructions of the controller, the data exporter  shall make the results available to the controller. 

(f) The data exporter may choose to conduct the audit by itself or mandate an  independent auditor. Audits may include inspections at the premises or physical  facilities of the data importer and shall, where appropriate, be carried out with  reasonable notice.  

(g) The Parties shall make the information referred to in paragraphs (b) and (c ),  including the results of any audits, available to the competent supervisory authority  on request. 

Clause 9 

Use of sub-processors 

(a) The data importer has the  controller’s general authorisation for the engagement of sub-processor(s) from an  agreed list. The data importer shall specifically inform the controller in writing of  any intended changes to that list through the addition or replacement of subprocessors at least thirty (30) days in advance, thereby giving the controller  sufficient time to be able to object to such changes prior to the engagement of the  sub-processor(s). The data importer shall provide the controller with the information  necessary to enable the controller to exercise its right to object. The data importer  shall inform the data exporter of the engagement of the sub-processor(s).  

(b) Where the data importer engages a sub-processor to carry out specific processing  activities (on behalf of the controller), it shall do so by way of a written contract that  provides for, in substance, the same data protection obligations as those binding the  data importer under these Clauses, including in terms of third-party beneficiary rights  for data subjects. The Parties agree that, by complying with this Clause, the data  importer fulfils its obligations under Clause 8.8. The data importer shall ensure that  the sub-processor complies with the obligations to which the data importer is subject  pursuant to these Clauses. 

(c ) The data importer shall provide, at the data exporter’s or controller’s request, a copy  of such a sub-processor agreement and any subsequent amendments. To the extent  necessary to protect business secrets or other confidential information, including  personal data, the data importer may redact the text of the agreement prior to sharing a copy. 

(d) The data importer shall remain fully responsible to the data exporter for the  performance of the sub-processor’s obligations under its contract with the data  importer. The data importer shall notify the data exporter of any failure by the sub processor to fulfil its obligations under that contract.  

(e) The data importer shall agree a third-party beneficiary clause with the sub-processor  whereby - in the event the data importer has factually disappeared, ceased to exist in  law or has become insolvent - the data exporter shall have the right to terminate the sub-processor contract and to instruct the sub-processor to erase or return the  personal data.

Clause 10 

Data subject rights 

(a) The data importer shall promptly notify the data exporter and, where appropriate, the  controller of any request it has received from a data subject, without responding to  that request unless it has been authorised to do so by the controller. 

(b) The data importer shall assist, where appropriate in cooperation with the data  exporter, the controller in fulfilling its obligations to respond to data subjects’  requests for the exercise of their rights under Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679 or  Regulation (EU) 2018/ 1725, as applicable. In this regard, the Parties shall set out in  Annex II the appropriate technical and organisational measures, taking into account  the nature of the processing, by which the assistance shall be provided, as well as the  scope and the extent of the assistance required. 

(c ) In fulfilling its obligations under paragraphs (a) and (b), the data importer shall  comply with the instructions from the controller, as communicated by the data  exporter. 

Clause 11 

Redress 

(a) The data importer shall inform data subjects in a transparent and easily accessible  format, through individual notice or on its website, of a contact point authorised to  handle complaints. It shall deal promptly with any complaints it receives from a data  subject.  

(b) In case of a dispute between a data subject and one of the Parties as regards  compliance with these Clauses, that Party shall use its best efforts to resolve the issue  amicably in a timely fashion. The Parties shall keep each other informed about such  disputes and, where appropriate, cooperate in resolving them.  

(c ) Where the data subject invokes a third-party beneficiary right pursuant to Clause 3,  the data importer shall accept the decision of the data subject to:  

(i) lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in the Member State of his/her  habitual residence or place of work, or the competent supervisory authority  pursuant to Clause 13; 

(ii) refer the dispute to the competent courts within the meaning of Clause 18. 

(d) The Parties accept that the data subject may be represented by a not-for-profit body,  organisation or association under the conditions set out in Article 80(1) of Regulation  (EU) 2016/ 679.

(e) The data importer shall abide by a decision that is binding under the applicable EU or  Member State law. 

(f) The data importer agrees that the choice made by the data subject will not prejudice  his/her substantive and procedural rights to seek remedies in accordance with  applicable laws. 

Clause 12 

Liability 

(a) Each Party shall be liable to the other Party/ies for any damages it causes the other  Party/ies by any breach of these Clauses.  

(b) The data importer shall be liable to the data subject, and the data subject shall be  entitled to receive compensation, for any material or non-material damages the data  importer or its sub-processor causes the data subject by breaching the third-party  beneficiary rights under these Clauses.  

(c ) Notwithstanding paragraph (b), the data exporter shall be liable to the data subject,  and the data subject shall be entitled to receive compensation, for any material or  non-material damages the data exporter or the data importer (or its sub-processor)  causes the data subject by breaching the third-party beneficiary rights under these  Clauses. This is without prejudice to the liability of the data exporter and, where the data exporter is a processor acting on behalf of a controller, to the liability of the  controller under Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679 or Regulation (EU) 2018/ 1725, as  applicable. 

(d) The Parties agree that if the data exporter is held liable under paragraph (c ) for  damages caused by the data importer (or its sub-processor), it shall be entitled to  claim back from the data importer that part of the compensation corresponding to the  data importer’s responsibility for the damage. 

(e) Where more than one Party is responsible for any damage caused to the data subject  as a result of a breach of these Clauses, all responsible Parties shall be jointly and  severally liable and the data subject is entitled to bring an action in court against any  of these Parties.

(g) The data importer may not invoke the conduct of a sub-processor to avoid its own  liability. 

Clause 13 

Supervision 

(a) Where the data exporter is established in an EU Member State: The supervisory  authority with responsibility for ensuring compliance by the data exporter with  Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679 as regards the data transfer, as indicated in Annex I.C,  shall act as competent supervisory authority. 

Where the data exporter is not established in an EU Member State, but falls within  the territorial scope of application of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679 in accordance with  its Article 3(2) and has appointed a representative pursuant to Article 27(1) of  Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679: The supervisory authority of the Member State in which  the representative within the meaning of Article 27(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679  is established, as indicated in Annex I.C, shall act as competent supervisory  authority.  

Where the data exporter is not established in an EU Member State, but falls within  the territorial scope of application of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679 in accordance with  its Article 3(2) without however having to appoint a representative pursuant to  Article 27(2) of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679: The supervisory authority of one of the  Member States in which the data subjects whose personal data is transferred under  these Clauses in relation to the offering of goods or services to them, or whose  behaviour is monitored, are located, as indicated in Annex I.C, shall act as competent  supervisory authority.  

(b) The data importer agrees to submit itself to the jurisdiction of and cooperate with the  competent supervisory authority in any procedures aimed at ensuring compliance  with these Clauses. In particular, the data importer agrees to respond to enquiries, submit to audits and comply with the measures adopted by the supervisory authority,  including remedial and compensatory measures. It shall provide the supervisory  authority with written confirmation that the necessary actions have been taken. 

SECTION III – LOCAL LAWS AND OBLIGATIONS IN CASE OF ACCESS BY  PUBLIC AUTHORITIES 

Clause 14 

Local laws and practices affecting compliance with the Clauses 

(a) The Parties warrant that they have no reason to believe that the laws and practices in  the third country of destination applicable to the processing of the personal data by  the data importer, including any requirements to disclose personal data or measures  authorising access by public authorities, prevent the data importer from fulfilling its  obligations under these Clauses. This is based on the understanding that laws and  practices that respect the essence of the fundamental rights and freedoms and do not  exceed what is necessary and proportionate in a democratic society to safeguard one  of the objectives listed in Article 23(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679, are not in  contradiction with these Clauses. 

(b) The Parties declare that in providing the warranty in paragraph (a), they have taken  due account in particular of the following elements: 

(i) the specific circumstances of the transfer, including the length of the  processing chain, the number of actors involved and the transmission channels  used; intended onward transfers; the type of recipient; the purpose of  processing; the categories and format of the transferred personal data; the  economic sector in which the transfer occurs; the storage location of the data  transferred;  

(ii) the laws and practices of the third country of destination– including those  requiring the disclosure of data to public authorities or authorising access by  such authorities – relevant in light of the specific circumstances of the transfer,  and the applicable limitations and safeguards;

(iii) any relevant contractual, technical or organisational safeguards put in place to  supplement the safeguards under these Clauses, including measures applied  during transmission and to the processing of the personal data in the country of  destination. 

(c ) The data importer warrants that, in carrying out the assessment under paragraph (b),  it has made its best efforts to provide the data exporter with relevant information and  agrees that it will continue to cooperate with the data exporter in ensuring  compliance with these Clauses. 

(d) The Parties agree to document the assessment under paragraph (b) and make it  available to the competent supervisory authority on request. 

(e) The data importer agrees to notify the data exporter promptly if, after having agreed  to these Clauses and for the duration of the contract, it has reason to believe that it is  or has become subject to laws or practices not in line with the requirements under  paragraph (a), including following a change in the laws of the third country or a  measure (such as a disclosure request) indicating an application of such laws in  practice that is not in line with the requirements in paragraph (a). The data exporter shall forward the notification to the controller.

(f) Following a notification pursuant to paragraph (e), or if the data exporter otherwise  has reason to believe that the data importer can no longer fulfil its obligations under  these Clauses, the data exporter shall promptly identify appropriate measures (e.g.  technical or organisational measures to ensure security and confidentiality) to be  adopted by the data exporter and/or data importer to address the situation, if appropriate in consultation with the controller. The data exporter  shall suspend the data transfer if it considers that no appropriate safeguards for such  transfer can be ensured, or if instructed by the controller or the  competent supervisory authority to do so. In this case, the data exporter shall be  entitled to terminate the contract, insofar as it concerns the processing of personal  data under these Clauses. If the contract involves more than two Parties, the data  exporter may exercise this right to termination only with respect to the relevant  Party, unless the Parties have agreed otherwise. Where the contract is terminated  pursuant to this Clause, Clause 16(d) and (e) shall apply.  

Clause 15 

Obligations of the data importer in case of access by public authorities 

15.1 Notification 

(a) The data importer agrees to notify the data exporter and, where possible, the data  subject promptly (if necessary with the help of the data exporter) if it:  

(i) receives a legally binding request from a public authority, including judicial  authorities, under the laws of the country of destination for the disclosure of  personal data transferred pursuant to these Clauses; such notification shall  include information about the personal data requested, the requesting authority,  the legal basis for the request and the response provided; or 

(ii) becomes aware of any direct access by public authorities to personal data  transferred pursuant to these Clauses in accordance with the laws of the  country of destination; such notification shall include all information available  to the importer. The data exporter shall forward the notification to the  controller. 

(b) If the data importer is prohibited from notifying the data exporter and/or the data  subject under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer agrees to use  its best efforts to obtain a waiver of the prohibition, with a view to communicating as  much information as possible, as soon as possible. The data importer agrees to  document its best efforts in order to be able to demonstrate them on request of the  data exporter.  

(c ) Where permissible under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer  agrees to provide the data exporter, at regular intervals for the duration of the  contract, with as much relevant information as possible on the requests received (in  particular, number of requests, type of data requested, requesting authority/ies,  whether requests have been challenged and the outcome of such challenges, etc.).  The data exporter shall forward the information to the  controller.

(d) The data importer agrees to preserve the information pursuant to paragraphs (a) to (c )  for the duration of the contract and make it available to the competent supervisory  authority on request.  

(e) Paragraphs (a) to (c ) are without prejudice to the obligation of the data importer  pursuant to Clause 14(e) and Clause 16 to inform the data exporter promptly where it  is unable to comply with these Clauses. 

15.2 Review of legality and data minimisation 

(a) The data importer agrees to review the legality of the request for disclosure, in  particular whether it remains within the powers granted to the requesting public authority, and to challenge the request if, after careful assessment, it concludes that  there are reasonable grounds to consider that the request is unlawful under the laws  of the country of destination, applicable obligations under international law and principles of international comity. The data importer shall, under the same  conditions, pursue possibilities of appeal. When challenging a request, the data  importer shall seek interim measures with a view to suspending the effects of the  request until the competent judicial authority has decided on its merits. It shall not  disclose the personal data requested until required to do so under the applicable  procedural rules. These requirements are without prejudice to the obligations of the  data importer under Clause 14(e). 

(b) The data importer agrees to document its legal assessment and any challenge to the  request for disclosure and, to the extent permissible under the laws of the country of  destination, make the documentation available to the data exporter. It shall also make  it available to the competent supervisory authority on request. The data exporter shall make the assessment available to the controller.

(c ) The data importer agrees to provide the minimum amount of information permissible  when responding to a request for disclosure, based on a reasonable interpretation of  the request. 

SECTION IV – FINAL PROVISIONS 

Clause 16 

Non-compliance with the Clauses and termination 

(a) The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter if it is unable to comply  with these Clauses, for whatever reason.  

(b) In the event that the data importer is in breach of these Clauses or unable to comply  with these Clauses, the data exporter shall suspend the transfer of personal data to the  data importer until compliance is again ensured or the contract is terminated. This is  without prejudice to Clause 14(f). 

(c ) The data exporter shall be entitled to terminate the contract, insofar as it concerns the  processing of personal data under these Clauses, where: 

(i) the data exporter has suspended the transfer of personal data to the data  importer pursuant to paragraph (b) and compliance with these Clauses is not  restored within a reasonable time and in any event within one month of  suspension;  

(ii) the data importer is in substantial or persistent breach of these Clauses; or 

(iii) the data importer fails to comply with a binding decision of a competent court  or supervisory authority regarding its obligations under these Clauses. 

In these cases, it shall inform the competent supervisory authority and the controller of such non-compliance. Where the contract involves more  than two Parties, the data exporter may exercise this right to termination only with  respect to the relevant Party, unless the Parties have agreed otherwise.  

(d) Personal data that has been transferred prior to  the termination of the contract pursuant to paragraph (c ) shall at the choice of the  data exporter immediately be returned to the data exporter or deleted in its entirety.  The same shall apply to any copies of the data. The data importer shall certify the deletion  of the data to the data exporter. Until the data is deleted or returned, the data importer  shall continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses. In case of local laws  applicable to the data importer that prohibit the return or deletion of the transferred  personal data, the data importer warrants that it will continue to ensure compliance  with these Clauses and will only process the data to the extent and for as long as  required under that local law.  

(e) Either Party may revoke its agreement to be bound by these Clauses where (i) the  European Commission adopts a decision pursuant to Article 45(3) of Regulation  (EU) 2016/ 679 that covers the transfer of personal data to which these Clauses apply;  or (ii) Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679 becomes part of the legal framework of the country  to which the personal data is transferred. This is without prejudice to other  obligations applying to the processing in question under Regulation (EU) 2016/ 679.  

Clause 17 

Governing law 

These Clauses shall be governed by the law of one of the EU Member States,  provided such law allows for third-party beneficiary rights. The Parties agree that this shall be  the law of Luxembourg. 

Clause 18 

Choice of forum and jurisdiction 

(a) Any dispute arising from these Clauses shall be resolved by the courts of an EU  Member State. 

(b) The Parties agree that those shall be the courts of Luxembourg.

(c ) A data subject may also bring legal proceedings against the data exporter and/or data  importer before the courts of the Member State in which he/she has his/her habitual  residence.  

(d) The Parties agree to submit themselves to the jurisdiction of such courts.

Although Annex 1A and Clause 7 of the Approved EU SCCs require signature by the Parties, for the purpose of making Restricted Transfers, the Parties may enter into this Addendum in any way that makes them legally binding on the Parties and allows data subjects to enforce their rights as set out in this Addendum. Entering into this Addendum will have the same effect as signing the Approved EU SCCs and any part of the Approved EU SCCs.

Interpretation of this Addendum

Where this Addendum uses terms that are defined in the Approved EU SCCs those terms shall have the same meaning as in the Approved EU SCCs. In addition, the following terms have the following meanings:
