3.2. Processor Assistance
Taking into account the nature of the Processing, the Company shall assist the Customer by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfilment of the Customer’s obligation to respond to a Data Subject Request as required by applicable Data Protection Laws. In addition, to the extent the Customer, in its use of the Services, does not have the ability to address a Data Subject Request, the Company shall, upon the Customer’s request, provide commercially reasonable efforts to assist the Customer in responding to such Data Subject Request, to the extent the Company is legally permitted to do so and the response to such Data Subject Request is required under applicable Data Protection Laws. To the extent legally permitted, the Customer shall be responsible for any costs arising from the Company’s provision of such assistance, including any fees associated with provision of additional functionality.
4.1. Appointment of Sub-processors
Customer acknowledges and agrees that:
- the Company’s Affiliates may be retained as Sub-processors through written agreement with the Company and
- the Company may engage third-party Sub-processors in connection with the provision of Services.
As a condition to permitting a third-party Sub-processor to Process Personal Data, the Company or a Company Affiliate will enter into a written agreement with each Sub-processor containing data protection obligations that provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Data as those in this DPA, to the extent applicable to the nature of the Services provided by such Sub-processor.
4.2. List of Current Sub-processors and Notification of New Sub-processors
A current list of Sub-processors for the Services, including the identities of those Sub-processors and their country of location, is accessible in the Exhibit B (List of Sub-processors) to this DPA. Notification of new Sub-processors will done be by email to the e-mail address provided by the Customer, although we may instead choose to provide notice to the Customer through the Service. Notices to the Company shall be sent to email@example.com
4.3. Objection Right for New Sub-processors.
The Customer may reasonably object to the Company’s use of a new Sub-processor (e.g., if making Personal Data available to the Sub-processor may violate applicable Data Protection Law or weaken the protections for such Personal Data) by notifying the Company promptly in writing within ten (10) business days after receipt of the Company’s notice. Such notice shall explain the reasonable grounds for the objection. In the event the Customer objects to a new Sub-processor, as permitted in the preceding sentence, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to make available to the Customer a change in the Services or recommend a commercially reasonable change to the Customer’s configuration or use of the Services to avoid Processing of Personal Data by the objected-to new Sub-processor without unreasonably burdening the Customer. If the Company is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period of time, which shall not exceed thirty (30) days, either party may terminate without penalty the applicable Contract with respect only to those Services which cannot be provided by the Company without the use of the objected-to new Sub-processor by providing written notice to the Company.
The Company shall be liable for the acts and omissions of its Sub-processors to the same extent the Company would be liable if performing the Services of each Sub-processor directly under the terms of this DPA.
5.1. Controls for the Protection of Personal Data
The Company shall maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures for protection of the security (including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration or damage, unauthorized disclosure of, or access
to, Personal Data), confidentiality and integrity of Personal Data.
5.2. Information and Audit Rights
Subject to this Article, the Company shall make available to the Customer, on request, all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with this DPA, and shall allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, by the Customer or an auditor mandated by the Customer in relation to the Processing of Personal Data. The information and audit rights only arise under this Section to the extent that this DPA does not otherwise provide the Consumer with information meeting the relevant requirements of Data Protection Law. Before the commencement of any such audit, the Customer and the Company shall mutually agree upon the scope, timing, and duration of the audit, in addition to the reimbursement rate for which the Customer shall be responsible. All reimbursement rates shall be reasonable, taking into account the resources expended by the Company. The Customer shall promptly notify the Company with information regarding any non-compliance discovered during the course of an audit, and the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to address any confirmed non-compliance.
6. PERSONAL DATA INCIDENT MANAGEMENT AND NOTIFICATION
6.1. The Company shall notify the Customer without undue delay of any breach relating to Personal Data (within the meaning of applicable Data Protection Law) of which the Company becomes aware and which may require a notification to be made to a Supervisory Authority or Data Subject under applicable Data Protection Law or which the Company is required to notify to Customer under applicable Data Protection Law (a “Personal Data Incident”).
6.2. The Company shall provide commercially reasonable cooperation and assistance in identifying the cause of such a Personal Data Incident and take commercially reasonable steps to remediate the cause to the extent the remediation is within the Company’s control. Except as required by applicable Data Protection Law, the obligations herein shall not apply to incidents that are caused by the Customer, Customer’s Workspace Members, Customer’s affiliates, representatives or contractors or other persons (legal or otherwise) under the control of the Customer.
7. DATA TRANSFER
7.1. The Data Processor may not transfer or authorize the transfer of Customer Personal Data to countries outside the EU and/or the European Economic Area (EEA) without prior notification of intent of such a data transfer to the Customer. The Customer may oppose such a transfer, in writing, within 15 days of notification of the intent of transfer, in which case the transfer shall not be executed, and the Parties shall seek to find another mutually satisfactory solution to implement the proposed data transfer.
7.2. If the Customer’s Personal Data Processed under this DPA is transferred from a country within the European Economic Area to a country outside the European Economic Area, the Parties shall ensure that the Personal Data is adequately protected. To achieve this, the Parties shall, unless agreed otherwise, rely on EU approved standard contractual clauses for the transfer of Personal Data.
7.3. In cases where a Personal Data transfer is being executed to a country outside of the EEA but deemed by the EU as a country offering adequate level of data protection per Art. 45. of the GDPR, prior notification of the Customer by the Data Processor as described herein shall not be required.
8. RETURN AND DELETION OF PERSONAL DATA
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
9.1. As this DPA is an integral part of the Contract, the limitation of liability as defined in the Contract shall apply in aggregate to any and all claims that may arise out of the Contract. To avoid doubt, this means that should a claim be filed due to perceived Company liability arising out of other provisions of the Contract and a separate claim be filed due to perceived Company liability arising out of this DPA, both claims in aggregate cannot exceed the limitation of liability set forth in the Contract.
10. DATA PROTECTION IMPACT ASSESSMENT
10.1. Upon the Customer’s request, the Company shall provide the Customer with reasonable cooperation and assistance needed to fulfil the Customer’s obligation under the GDPR to carry out a data protection impact assessment related to Customer’s use of the Services, to the extent Customer does not otherwise have access to the relevant information, and to the extent such information is available to the Company. The Company shall provide reasonable assistance to the Customer in the cooperation or prior consultation with the Supervisory Authority, to the extent required under the GDPR. In cases where excessive expenses (monetary or temporal) may be incurred for the Company, the Company shall request a reasonable fee and coverage of such expenses.
11. LEGAL EFFECT
11.1. By accepting and entering into the Contract, of which this DPA is an integral part, the Customer has accepted and entered into this DPA. If the Customer has previously executed a “data processing addendum” with the Company, this DPA supersedes and replaces such prior Data Processing Addendum.
12. GOVERNING LAW
12.1. This DPA and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Republic of Croatia.
