The Parties acknowledge that: (i) Licensee alone will determine the purposes for which and the manner in which Licensee Personal Data are, or are to be, Processed in the performance of this Agreement; (ii) Licensee will be either the Data Controller or a Data Processor in respect of all Licensee Personal Data; (iii) Adaptiv.Me will be either the Data Processor or a Subprocessor in respect of Licensee Personal Data; and (iv) Adaptiv.Me will only Process Licensee Personal Data for the limited purpose of performing its obligations under this Agreement or as may be necessary to comply with applicable laws.17. Requests.
As soon as reasonably practicable or as specified below in this section, Adaptiv.Me will comply with any written request by Licensee to: (i) correct or delete inaccurate Licensee Personal Data; (ii) provide Licensee with a copy of Licensee Personal Data relating to an EU Data Subject in the possession or control of Adaptiv.Me; (iii) provide Licensee with information about the Processing of Licensee Personal Data including information (or a report in sufficient detail if requested by Licensee, within thirty (30) days of such request) about the technical and organizational security measures that it uses to comply with the Processor Security Obligations or information about how its Processing of Licensee Personal Data complies with applicable Data Protection Laws; (iv) within ten (10) days of such request or notice (as applicable) from Licensee, provide Licenssee with reasonable assistance in respect of any request or notice, or any anticipated request or notice, by or on behalf of any EU Data Subject or by a Supervisory Authority in respect of Licensee Personal Data; (v) delete or return to Licensee the Licensee Personal Data after the end of the provision of the services related to the Processing, unless otherwise required by applicable law; and (vi) otherwise provide reasonable assistance to Licensee as necessary to allow Licensee to comply with applicable Data Protection Laws.18. Use.
Adaptiv.Me will not, without Licensee’s prior written consent use Licensee Personal Data for purposes other than those set forth in the Agreement or as required by applicable law.19. Transfer.
(a) Adaptiv.Me may, subject to Section 19(b), store and Process Licensee Personal Data anywhere Adaptiv.Me or its Subprocessors maintain facilities.
(b) Transfers of Data Out of the EEA.
a. If the storage and/or Processing of Licensee Personal Data (as set out in Section 19(a) involves transfers of Licensee Personal Data out of the EEA or Switzerland, and the GDPR applies to the transfers of such data (“Transferred Personal Data”), Adaptiv.Me will make such transfers in accordance with a Transfer Solution, and make information available to Licensee about such Transfer Solution upon request.
b. In respect of Transferred Personal Data, Licensee agrees that if under the GDPR Adaptiv.Me reasonably requires Licensee to enter into Standard Contractual Clauses or use another Transfer Solution offered by Adaptiv.Me, and reasonably requests that Licensee take any action (which may include execution of documents) required to give full effect to such solution, Licensee will do so.
(c) If Licensee has entered into Standard Contractual Clauses as described in Section 19(b), Adaptiv.Me will, notwithstanding any term to the contrary in the Agreement, make any disclosure of Licensee Personal Data, and any notifications relating to any such disclosures, in accordance with such Standard Contractual Clauses. For the purposes of the Standard Contractual Clauses, Licensee and Adaptiv.Me agree that (i) Licensee will act as the data exporter on Licensee’s own behalf (ii) Adaptiv.Me or its relevant Affiliate will act on its own behalf and/or on behalf of Adaptiv.Me’s Affiliates as the data importers.20. Subprocessors.
(a) Adaptiv.Me will engage subcontractors only pursuant to Licensee’s general or specific authorization. Licensee specifically authorizes the engagement of Adaptiv.Me’s parent, subsidiaries, and other companies under common control with Adaptiv.Me as subcontractors. Licensee generally authorizes the Adaptiv.Me’s engagement of any other third parties as subcontractors. When engaging any subcontractor, Adaptiv.Me will enter into a written contract with such subcontractor containing data protection obligations not less protective than those in this DPA, to the extent applicable to the nature of the services provided by such subcontractor. Where Adaptiv.Me engages a subcontractor pursuant to Licensee’s general authorization, Adaptiv.Me will, at least 30 days before the new subcontractor Processes any Licensee Personal Data, notify Licensee of the engagement. Licensee may object to such subcontractor by providing written notice to Adaptiv.Me within ten (10) business days of being informed of the engagement. In the event Licensee objects to a new subcontractor, Licensee and Adaptiv.Me will work together in good faith to find a mutually acceptable resolution to address such objection. If the parties are unable to reach a mutually acceptable resolution within a reasonable timeframe, Licensee may, as its sole and exclusive remedy, terminate the agreement impacted by the subcontractor by providing written notice to Adaptiv.Me. Licensee consents to Adaptiv.Me’s transfer of Licensee Personal Data to subcontractors as described in this DPA and agrees that Licensee’s consent satisfies the requirements of the Standard Contractual Clauses between Licensee and Adaptiv.Me under Clauses 5(h) and 11.1 of the Standard Contractual Clauses.
(b) Adaptiv.Me’s list of subcontractors is currently available athttps://Adaptiv.Me/subprocessors
, and such list may be updated by Adaptiv.Me from time to time. The Standard Contractual Clauses will apply to Licensee Personal Data that is transferred outside the EEA either directly or via onward transfer, to any country not recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data. The Standard Contractual Clauses will not apply to Licensee Personal Data that is not transferred, either directly or via onward transfer, outside the EEA. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Standard Contractual Clauses will not apply if Licensee has adopted an alternative recognized compliance standard for the lawful transfer of personal data outside the EEA.
(c) Upon Licensee’s written request Adaptiv.Me shall allow Licensee to examine the data protection provisions of agreements between Adaptiv.Me and its subcontractors that access Licensee Personal Data; provided that such agreements shall remain Adaptiv.Me Confidential Information. Licensee agrees that this section satisfies the requirements of the Standard Contractual Clauses between Licensee and Licensee Personal Data under Clause 5(j) of the Standard Contractual Clauses.21. Complaints.
Adaptiv.Me will promptly notify Licensee if any complaints are received by Adaptiv.Me from third parties about the Processing of Licensee Personal Data, and Adaptiv.Me will not make any admissions, settle or take any action which may be prejudicial to the defense or settlement of any such complaint and will provide to Licensee such reasonable assistance, at Licensee’s cost, as it may require in connection with such complaint. If Adaptiv.Me acquires, on behalf of and independently from Licensee, any EU Personal Data from EU Data Subjects as part of the Services, Adaptiv.Me will give such individuals a data protection notice describing the intended use of such EU Personal Data, in a form provided or approved by Licensee. Without prejudice to its other obligations under this Agreement, if Adaptiv.Me becomes aware of any unauthorized, unlawful or dishonest conduct or activities or any breach of this section (including the occurrence of any Data Breach), Adaptiv.Me will promptly notify Licensee and provide all relevant information reasonably required by Licensee about such conduct, activities and/or breaches.22. Adaptiv.Me Security Obligations.
Adaptiv.Me acknowledges that it is obliged to comply with the Processor Security Obligations (including management of on-going compliance and effective security management) in respect of Licensee Personal Data and, in particular, that it will comply with the following obligations: (i) take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to safeguard against any unauthorized and unlawful Processing of Licensee Personal Data and against any accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, EU Personal Data; (ii) only Process Licensee Personal Data in accordance with written instructions given by Licensee; (iii) take reasonable steps to ensure the reliability of those Adaptiv.Me employees, agents or other personnel that have access to Licensee Personal Data; and (iv) ensure that all Adaptiv.Me employees, agents or other personnel involved in Processing Licensee Personal Data have undergone reasonably adequate training in the care and handling of EU Personal Data.
If Adaptiv.Me becomes aware of an information security incident affecting Adaptiv.Me’s systems, Adaptiv.Me will: (a) notify Licensee of the incident without undue delay after becoming aware of the incident; and (b) take reasonable steps to identify the cause of such incident, minimise harm and prevent a recurrence. Licensee is solely responsible for complying with incident notification laws applicable to Licensee and fulfilling any third party notification obligations related to any information security incident(s). Adaptiv.Me’s notification of or response to an information security incident under this section will not be construed as an acknowledgement by Adaptiv.Me of any fault or liability with respect to the Information Security Incident. Licensee agrees that the provisions of this section satisfy the requirements of the Standard Contractual Clauses between Licensee and Adaptiv.Me under Clause 5(d)(2) of the Standard Contractual Clauses. 23. Audit.
If a relevant data protection Supervisory Authority is required by law or regulation to audit the facilities from which Adaptiv.Me Processes EU Personal Data in order to ascertain and/or monitor compliance with Data Protection Requirements, then Adaptiv.Me will cooperate with the audit at Licensee’s expense. The audit obligations described in this section are made at Licensee’s request to ensure regularity and consistency in the audit process and shall apply, without limitation, to Processing of Licensee Personal Data by Adaptiv.Me for purposes of the Standard Contractual Clauses between Licensee and Adaptiv.Me in full satisfaction of Licensee’s rights as the data exporter under Clauses 5(f) and 12.2 of the Standard Contractual Clauses to conduct an audit of the data processing facilities used by Adaptiv.Me. To maintain such regularity and consistency, changes or additions to these audit obligations must be made pursuant to Standard Contractual Clauses. Adaptiv.Me is an intended third-party beneficiary of this section.24. Liability.
(a) The total combined liability of either party and its affiliates towards the other party and its affiliates, whether in contract, tort or any other theory of liability, under or in connection with this DPA, and the Standard Contractual Clauses if entered into as described in Section 19 (Transfer), combined, will be limited to limitations on liability or other liability caps agreed to by the parties in the DPA, subject to Section 24(b).
(b) Nothing in this section will affect any party’s liability to data subjects under the third-party beneficiary provisions of the Standard Contractual Clauses to the extent limitation of such rights is prohibited by the GDPR.ATTACHMENT 1Subject Matter and Details of the Data ProcessingSubject Matter:

1. The parties agree that any data subject, who has suffered damage as a result of any breach of the obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 by any party or subprocessor is entitled to receive compensation from the data exporter for the damage suffered.
2. If a data subject is not able to bring a claim for compensation in accordance with paragraph 1 against the data exporter, arising out of a breach by the data importer or his subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11, because the data exporter has factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent, the data importer agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data importer as if it were the data exporter, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by contract of by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity.
The data importer may not rely on a breach by a subprocessor of its obligations in order to avoid its own liabilities.
3. If a data subject is not able to bring a claim against the data exporter or the data importer referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2, arising out of a breach by the subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 because both the data exporter and the data importer have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, the subprocessor agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data subprocessor with regard to its own processing operations under the Clauses as if it were the data exporter or the data importer, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.Clause 7Mediation and jurisdiction
1.The data importer agrees that if the data subject invokes against it third-party beneficiary rights and/or claims compensation for damages under the Clauses, the data importer will accept the decision of the data subject:
(a) to refer the dispute to mediation, by an independent person or, where applicable, by the supervisory authority;

2. The parties agree that the supervisory authority has the right to conduct an audit of the data importer, and of any subprocessor, which has the same scope and is subject to the same conditions as would apply to an audit of the data exporter under the applicable data protection law.
3. The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter about the existence of legislation applicable to it or any subprocessor preventing the conduct of an audit of the data importer, or any subprocessor, pursuant to paragraph 2. In such a case the data exporter shall be entitled to take the measures foreseen in Clause 5 (b).Clause 9Governing Law
The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established, as set out in Appendix 3 below.Clause 10Variation of the contract
The parties undertake not to vary or modify the Clauses. This does not preclude the parties from adding clauses on business related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Clause.Clause 11Subprocessing
1. The data importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the data exporter under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the data exporter. Where the data importer subcontracts its obligations under the Clauses, with the consent of the data exporter, it shall do so only by way of a written agreement with the subprocessor which imposes the same obligations on the subprocessor as are imposed on the data importer under the Clauses. Where the subprocessor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations under such written agreement the data importer shall remain fully liable to the data exporter for the performance of the subprocessor's obligations under such agreement.
2. The prior written contract between the data importer and the subprocessor shall also provide for a third-party beneficiary clause as laid down in Clause 3 for cases where the data subject is not able to bring the claim for compensation referred to in paragraph 1 of Clause 6 against the data exporter or the data importer because they have factually disappeared or have ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent and no successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law. Such third-party liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
3. The provisions relating to data protection aspects for subprocessing of the contract referred to in paragraph 1 shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established, as set out in Appendix 3 below.
4. The data exporter shall keep a list of subprocessing agreements concluded under the Clauses and notified by the data importer pursuant to Clause 5(j), which shall be updated at least once a year. The list shall be available to the data exporter's data protection supervisory authority.Clause 12Obligation after the termination of personal data processing services
1. The parties agree that on the termination of the provision of data processing services, the data importer and the subprocessor shall, at the choice of the data exporter, return all the personal data transferred and the copies thereof to the data exporter or shall destroy all the personal data and certify to the data exporter that it has done so, unless legislation imposed upon the data importer prevents it from returning or destroying all or part of the personal data transferred. In that case, the data importer warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data transferred and will not actively process the personal data transferred anymore.
2. The data importer and the subprocessor warrant that upon request of the data exporter and/or of the supervisory authority, it will submit its data processing facilities for an audit of the measures referred to in paragraph 1.On behalf of the data exporter
