5.1.1 Supplier must, and shall procure that its subprocessors shall, process Personal Data only for the purposes of fulfilling its obligations under this Agreement and in accordance with relevant documented instructions from Customer (unless required to do so by a Union or member state law to which Supplier is subject; in such a case Supplier shall inform Customer of that legal requirement before processing, unless the law prohibits such information on important grounds of public interest). Customer agrees to provide Supplier with documented instructions relating to Personal Data under the Agreement.
5.1.2 Supplier agrees to make reasonable efforts to assist Customer in ensuring compliance with the obligations pursuant to Articles 32 to 36 of the GDPR taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to Supplier.
5.1.3 Supplier will not disclose any Personal Data to a third party, except at Customer’s specific request or where obliged to do so under any statutory or other legal requirement (in which case Supplier will use reasonable endeavours to advise Customer in advance of such disclosure and in any event immediately thereafter); and
5.1.4 Supplier or its sub-processors will transfer Personal Data outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), under the terms of section “Transfers of Personal Data Outside the EEA” (below).
Customer’s obligations as controller
5.2 In addition to Customer’s other responsibilities set out elsewhere in the Agreement, Customer also acknowledges and agrees that:
5.2.1 Customer has and will continue to abide by an appropriate privacy notice relating to the collection and use of Personal Data.
5.2.2 Customer shall comply with:
(a) all Data Protection Laws in connection with the processing of Personal Data and in the exercise and performance of Customer’s respective rights and obligations under this Agreement; and
(b) the terms of this Data Processing Addendum and the Agreement.
5.2.3 Customer states that:
(a) all data sourced by Customer for use in connection with the Product or Professional Services shall comply in all respects, including in terms of its collection, storage and processing (which shall include Customer providing all of the required fair processing information to, and obtaining all necessary consents from, Data Subjects), with Data Protection Laws; and
(b) all instructions given by it to Supplier in respect of Personal Data shall at all times be in accordance with Data Protection Laws.
5.2.4 Customer shall not withhold, delay or condition Customer’s agreement to any change to this Agreement requested by Supplier in order to ensure the Supplier (and each subprocessor) can comply with Data Protection Laws.
6.1 Each party agrees to take appropriate, and industry standard, technical and organizational measures against unauthorized or unlawful access or processing of Personal Data in connection with this Data Processing Addendum and the Agreement or its accidental loss, destruction or damage. Roadie agree to apply the Roadie Platform Security Measures (available on request), which may be updated from time to time.
6.2 Supplier shall, and shall procure that its subprocessors shall, take all reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Data processed in connection with this Data Processing Addendum and the Agreement is processed in compliance with the obligations under Article 32 of the GDPR relating to security of processing.
7.1 Supplier will promptly notify Customer of any known or reasonably suspected breach of security leading to a Personal Data Breach.
7.2 In respect of any Personal Data Breach, the Supplier shall:
7.2.1 notify the Customer of the Personal Data Breach without undue delay (but in no event later than 72 hours after becoming aware of the Personal Data Breach); and
7.2.2 provide the Customer without undue delay (wherever possible, no later than 72 hours after becoming aware of the Personal Data Breach) with such details as the Customer reasonably requires regarding:
(a) the nature of the Personal Data Breach (including, the categories and approximate numbers of data subjects and Personal Data records concerned);
(b) any investigations into such Personal Data Breach;
7.2.3 the likely consequences of the Personal Data Breach; and
7.2.4 any measures taken, or that the Supplier recommends, to address the Personal Data Breach, including to mitigate its possible adverse effects,
provided that, (without prejudice to the above obligations) if the Supplier cannot provide all these details within the timeframes set out in this section 7.2, it shall (before the end of such timeframes) provide the Customer with reasons for the delay and when it expects to be able to provide the relevant details (which may be phased), and give the Customer regular updates on these matters.
7.3 If a Personal Data Breach occurs the Supplier shall:
7.3.1 take such steps and do all acts and things as the Customer requires in order to mitigate the effects of the Personal Data Breach; and
7.3.2 restore to the last available backup any Customer Data that has been lost, damaged or destroyed by the Personal Data Breach.
Supplier will make available to Customer all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the data processing obligations laid down in this DPA including by allowing for and contributing to reasonable audits to determine Supplier’s compliance with its obligations under this DPA. These audits (of frequency of no more than once per year, except where there is reason to suspect a breach of the obligations may have occurred) may be conducted by Customer, auditors mandated by Customer, or public authorities in competent jurisdictions, subject to Customer and Customer’s auditors (if relevant) undertaking reasonable and appropriate confidentiality obligations.
Supplier shall, and shall procure that its subprocessors shall, ensure that any persons to whom Supplier discloses Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality with respect to the Personal Data.
Subprocessors appointed by Supplier:
10.1 The Product and Professional Services may include an element of hosting. As such, Supplier uses third party providers to provide certain services, including hosting. A list of these third party providers is available at https://roadie.io/legal-notices/sub-processors/ (“Subprocessor Details”).
10.2 These subprocessors will have access to certain data, including relevant Personal Data, however such subprocessors are only permitted to process data, for the purposes of providing their specifically contracted services to Supplier.
10.3 Supplier will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that such subprocessors utilize reasonable industry recognized security measures to protect against loss, misuse and unauthorized viewing of the information Customer provides to Supplier.
Third Party Providers Appointed by Customer:
10.4 Customer may elect to subscribe to third party services that may integrate with the Product or Professional Services (Third Party Solutions as defined in the Agreement).
10.5 Where Customer chooses to integrate with a Third Party Solution, this may entail providing Supplier with access to Personal Data held by such Third Party Solution, and may require the providers of such Third Party Solution to have access to Personal Data. Customer must notify Supplier and put in place a written contract between Customer and Supplier as required under Article 28 GDPR relating to any extra categories of Personal Data that Supplier will process on behalf of Customer due to such integration. Customer shall not send any personal data to Supplier unnecessarily.
10.6 With regard to Third Party Solution, Customer acknowledges and agrees that:
10.6.1 Supplier has no contractual relationship with such third parties, and no responsibility for Personal Data once such a transfer commences, nor for the duration such third party holds the relevant data. Supplier does not audit the adequacy or otherwise confirm the security or organizational measures employed by such third parties, which is Customer’s sole responsibility.
10.6.2 Customer is responsible for ensuring that Customer’s and Supplier’s use of the Product and Professional Services and integration with a Third Party Solution complies with any service terms of the applicable Third Party Solution. Supplier is not required to maintain Personal Data collected in breach of any relevant data protection or other applicable laws.
10.6.3 Customer is responsible for obtaining consent from its personnel for the use and deployment of all Third Party Solutions or Customer Data subject to the E-Privacy Directive that will process data regulated by the E-Privacy Directive on the Product.
10.7 Supplier makes no representations as to the appropriateness or legality of Customer’s choice to permit such third parties to have access to its Personal Data, and Customer is responsible for ensuring that it has all requisite consents and has provided any required notices to data subjects with respect to this processing of their data. Supplier is not responsible for the processing of Personal Data by Third Party Solutions.
10.8 SUPPLIER HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACTIONS OF SUCH THIRD PARTIES OR FOR LOSS, DAMAGES, OR CLAIMS ARISING AS A RESULT OF DEPLOYING INTEGRATION CODE FACILITATING TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA OR MAKING A TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA ON CUSTOMER’S BEHALF. SUPPLIER MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE SUITABILITY OF SUCH THIRD PARTY FOR RECEIPT OF PERSONAL DATA NOR OF THE SUITABILITY OF THE THIRD PARTY SOLUTIONS TO PROCESS PERSONAL DATA.
11.1 Supplier may only authorise a subprocessor to process Personal Data provided that Supplier has entered into a written agreement with such subprocessor on terms which are substantially the same as those set out in this DPA. Where a subprocessor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations, Supplier shall remain liable to Customer for the performance of the data protection obligations of the relevant subprocessor.
11.2 Customer provide a general authorisation to Supplier to engage the subprocessors as are appointed on the date this DPA comes into force.
11.3 Supplier will with thirty (30) days’ notice inform Customer of any intended change in the subprocessors that will process Personal Data under this agreement and Customer shall be entitled to make any objections thereto. If no objections have been received within ten (10) days, the proposed subprocessor shall be deemed accepted. If Customer does not agree to the subprocessor, the parties shall attempt to settle the disagreement and if the parties cannot agree on the use of a subprocessor, Supplier may terminate this agreement by providing written notice, such termination to take effect on the later of (i) the date on which Supplier will commence using the services of the relevant subprocessor in relation to the Product and/or Professional Services provided to Customer or (ii) one (1) month after the date of Customer’s written notice.
12.1 Personal Data may be transferred or stored outside the country where the Customer is located in order to carry out the Product or Professional Services and our other obligations under the Agreement.
12.2 Other than with respect to the transfer of Personal Data to subprocessors listed in the Subprocessor Details, Supplier will only transfer Personal Data outside the EEA on Customer’s specific request. Examples of why Customer may make such a request are transfers of such data to Customer or Customer’s affiliates, where Customer or Customer’s affiliate is based outside the EEA; a transfer to a third party outside of the EEA for further processing of the data; a specific request by Customer that Supplier uses an third party hosting provider or where Customer opts to integrate with a Third Party Solution outside of the EEA.
12.3 Where Customer opts to send Personal Data to Third Party Solutions via integration or plug-in, Customer agrees that providers of third party services are not subprocessors of Supplier for data protection purposes and such providers are Customer’s directly-contracted data processors acting under Customer’s instructions.
12.4 In making a request for Supplier to transfer Personal Data, subject to GDPR and related privacy regulations outside of the EEA, Customer confirms that there is “an adequate level of protection” in place for such transfer as such term in understood under GDPR.
12.5 Customer will indemnify and hold harmless Supplier, its subsidiaries and affiliates (and their respective employees, directors, officers, shareholders, attorneys, agents and representatives) from and against any and all claims, costs, losses, damages, judgments, penalties, interest and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) from any claim, action, audit, investigation, regulatory action, inquiry or other proceeding that arises out of or relates to use of Personal Data by Third Party Solutions, or other transferees, or Customer’s failure to comply with any applicable laws and regulations in connection with the transfer of the Personal Data outside the EEA including any applicable data protection legislation or that arises out of or relates to any subsequent use of the Personal Data by the relevant transferee. This indemnification obligation set forth herein shall survive the termination of the Agreement.
12.6 Supplier agrees to enter into a SCC Agreement with Customer where reasonably required to ensure an “adequate level of protection” is in place for the transfer of such Personal Data outside the EEA.
12.7 The parties agree to cooperate where, due to changes in law or practice, an alternate data transfer mechanism is required to be put into operation to ensure an “adequate level of protection” is in place for transfer of data outside the EEA under GDPR.
12.8 Customer notes that the SCC Agreement is expected to be updated by the European Commission in early 2021 (the New SCC Agreement). The Customer will have an opportunity to convey to Roadie any concerns with respect to the terms of the New SCC Agreement for a period of one month following the publication of the final form of the New SCC Agreement. After that period has elapsed, the SCC Agreement at Schedule 1 will be deemed to be replaced by the New SCC Agreement and all references to the SCC Agreement in this Agreement shall from that date refer to the New SCC Agreement.
12.9 Further to the above, Customer agrees to cooperate with Roadie where reasonable Supplementary Measures are required to be implemented to ensure compliance with the EU level of protection of Personal Data including in respect of additional data processing terms in Customer contracts.
12.10 In the event that the United Kingdom is not deemed to provide an “adequate level of protection” for the protection of personal data as such term is understood under the GDPR and the transition period for transfers of personal data between EU and UK has expired, the SCC Agreement (or, by agreement of the parties, any subsequent applicable data transfer mechanism agreed between the UK and EU) shall apply to any transfers of personal data to or from the United Kingdom during the term of the Agreement and Supplier agrees to be bound by the attached SCC Agreement in full in such circumstances in order to ensure the lawful transfer or personal data between the United Kingdom and the EEA.
13.1 Supplier will promptly assist Customer with all notices, requests or other enquiries relating to the data protection rights which may be received by Customer or Supplier, at Customer’s reasonable expense.
13.2 Supplier will not respond to any subject access request without the Customer’s prior written approval unless required to do so by law or direction of a relevant regulator.
Immediately on termination or expiry of this Agreement, or otherwise on Customer’s request, Supplier must and shall procure that its subprocessors shall:
14.1 return all Personal Data to Customer; or
14.2 delete all the Personal Data, in a manner agreed to by Customer;
at Customer’s election, unless a law binding on Supplier or its subprocessors prevents it from doing as requested or unless otherwise agreed in the Agreement (for example, where the Customer has requested Supplier continue to store Personal Data in order to ensure compliance with a legal obligation). If Customer has not made their election within 30 days of termination of the Agreement, Supplier shall delete the Personal Data.
The obligations contained in this DPA are without prejudice to Supplier’s other obligations under this Agreement and apply notwithstanding any permitted use or disclosure of confidential information in this Agreement.
16.1 Subject to sections 16.2 and 16.3, the costs of Supplier and its subprocessors to comply with their respective obligations as data processors under Data Protection Laws applicable in a specific jurisdiction shall be borne by Supplier and its subprocessors to the extent compliance with such obligations is necessary for Supplier and/or its subprocessors’ compliance with applicable Data Protection Laws in their role as data processors in the jurisdiction in question.
16.2 Notwithstanding section 16.1, if Customer request Supplier to take on compliance activities which go beyond the activities that Supplier is required to do as a processor under applicable Data Protection Laws, Supplier shall be entitled to its reasonable costs and the above shall be notified to Supplier and agreed pursuant to a further Order Form.
16.3 Should changes to applicable Data Protection Laws, including the interpretation thereof, entail increased costs for Supplier or its subprocessors, Supplier may, subject to providing written notice Customer, increase the rates charged to Customer to reflect the increased costs. The increase to Customer should be fair and reasonable and should be proportional to what other similar customers are being asked to pay.
17.1 By using the Product to process Personal Data, Customer states, that Customer’s collection and processing of Personal Data does not breach the rights of any person or entity, including rights of publicity, privacy or under applicable Data Protection Laws, that Customer is entitled to transfer the relevant Personal Data to Supplier, and that Supplier is entitled to transfer Personal Data to its subprocessors and all Third Party Solutions so that they each respectively may lawfully use, process and transfer such Personal Data in accordance with this DPA and the Agreement.
17.2 The liability of the Supplier relating to Personal Data processed in connection with the Product and/or Professional Services is limited to direct losses related to:
17.2.1 any breach by the Supplier of any of its Personal Data obligations under this DPA; or
17.2.2 the Supplier (or any person acting on its behalf) acting outside or contrary to the lawful processing Instructions of the Customer in respect of the processing of Personal Data.
17.3 Any claims brought under or in connection with this DPA shall be subject to the Agreement, including but not limited to, the exclusions and limitations of liability set forth in the Agreement.
18.1 The parties agree that this DPA shall replace any existing data protection terms the parties may have previously entered into in connection with the Product or Professional Services relating to Personal Data.
18.2 Except for the changes made by this DPA, the Agreement remains unchanged and in full force and effect. If there is any conflict between this DPA and the Agreement, this DPA shall prevail to the extent of that conflict.

Details of the transfer
The details of the transfer and in particular the special categories of personal data where applicable are specified in Appendix 1 which forms an integral part of the Clauses.
Third-party beneficiary clause
1. The data subject can enforce against the data exporter this Clause, Clause 4(b) to (i), Clause 5(a) to (e), and (g) to (j), Clause 6(1) and (2), Clause 7, Clause 8(2), and Clauses 9 to 12 as third-party beneficiary.
2. The data subject can enforce against the data importer this Clause, Clause 5(a) to (e) and (g), Clause 6, Clause 7, Clause 8(2), and Clauses 9 to 12, in cases where the data exporter has factually disappeared or has ceased to exist in law unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by contract or by operation of law, as a result of which it takes on the rights and obligations of the data exporter, in which case the data subject can enforce them against such entity.
3. The data subject can enforce against the subprocessor this Clause, Clause 5(a) to (e) and (g), Clause 6, Clause 7, Clause 8(2), and Clauses 9 to 12, in cases where both the data exporter and the data importer have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by contract or by operation of law as a result of which it takes on the rights and obligations of the data exporter, in which case the data subject can enforce them against such entity. Such third-party liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
4. The parties do not object to a data subject being represented by an association or other body if the data subject so expressly wishes and if permitted by national law.
Obligations of the data exporter
The data exporter agrees and warrants:
(a) that the processing, including the transfer itself, of the personal data has been and will continue to be carried out in accordance with the relevant provisions of the applicable data protection law (and, where applicable, has been notified to the relevant authorities of the Member State where the data exporter is established) and does not violate the relevant provisions of that State;
(b) that it has instructed and throughout the duration of the personal data processing services will instruct the data importer to process the personal data transferred only on the data exporter’s behalf and in accordance with the applicable data protection law and the Clauses;

(d) that after assessment of the requirements of the applicable data protection law, the security measures are appropriate to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, in particular where the processing involves the transmission of data over a network, and against all other unlawful forms of processing, and that these measures ensure a level of security appropriate to the risks presented by the processing and the nature of the data to be protected having regard to the state of the art and the cost of their implementation;
(e) that it will ensure compliance with the security measures;
(f) that, if the transfer involves special categories of data, the data subject has been informed or will be informed before, or as soon as possible after, the transfer that its data could be transmitted to a third country not providing adequate protection within the meaning of Directive 95/46/EC;
(g) to forward any notification received from the data importer or any subprocessor pursuant to Clause 5(b) and Clause 8(3) to the data protection supervisory authority if the data exporter decides to continue the transfer or to lift the suspension;
(h) to make available to the data subjects upon request a copy of the Clauses, with the exception of Appendix 2, and a summary description of the security measures, as well as a copy of any contract for subprocessing services which has to be made in accordance with the Clauses, unless the Clauses or the contract contain commercial information, in which case it may remove such commercial information;
(i) that, in the event of subprocessing, the processing activity is carried out in accordance with Clause 11 by a subprocessor providing at least the same level of protection for the personal data and the rights of data subject as the data importer under the Clauses; and
(j) that it will ensure compliance with Clause 4(a) to (i).
Obligations of the data importer
The data importer agrees and warrants:
(a) to process the personal data only on behalf of the data exporter and in compliance with its instructions and the Clauses; if it cannot provide such compliance for whatever reasons, it agrees to inform promptly the data exporter of its inability to comply, in which case the data exporter is entitled to suspend the transfer of data and/or terminate the contract;
(b) that it has no reason to believe that the legislation applicable to it prevents it from fulfilling the instructions received from the data exporter and its obligations under the contract and that in the event of a change in this legislation which is likely to have a substantial adverse effect on the warranties and obligations provided by the Clauses, it will promptly notify the change to the data exporter as soon as it is aware, in which case the data exporter is entitled to suspend the transfer of data and/or terminate the contract;
(c) that it has implemented the technical and organisational security measures specified in Appendix 2 before processing the personal data transferred;
(d) that it will promptly notify the data exporter about:
(i) any legally binding request for disclosure of the personal data by a law enforcement authority unless otherwise prohibited, such as a prohibition under criminal law to preserve the confidentiality of a law enforcement investigation,
(ii) any accidental or unauthorised access, and
(iii) any request received directly from the data subjects without responding to that request, unless it has been otherwise authorised to do so;
(e) to deal promptly and properly with all inquiries from the data exporter relating to its processing of the personal data subject to the transfer and to abide by the advice of the supervisory authority with regard to the processing of the data transferred;
(f) at the request of the data exporter to submit its data processing facilities for audit of the processing activities covered by the Clauses which shall be carried out by the data exporter or an inspection body composed of independent members and in possession of the required professional qualifications bound by a duty of confidentiality, selected by the data exporter, where applicable, in agreement with the supervisory authority;
(g) to make available to the data subject upon request a copy of the Clauses, or any existing contract for subprocessing, unless the Clauses or contract contain commercial information, in which case it may remove such commercial information, with the exception of Appendix 2 which shall be replaced by a summary description of the security measures in those cases where the data subject is unable to obtain a copy from the data exporter;
(h) that, in the event of subprocessing, it has previously informed the data exporter and obtained its prior written consent;
(i) that the processing services by the subprocessor will be carried out in accordance with Clause 11;
(j) to send promptly a copy of any subprocessor agreement it concludes under the Clauses to the data exporter.
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.
Mediation 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;
(b) to refer the dispute to the courts in the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
2. The parties agree that the choice made by the data subject will not prejudice its substantive or procedural rights to seek remedies in accordance with other provisions of national or international law.
Cooperation with supervisory authorities
1. The data exporter agrees to deposit a copy of this contract with the supervisory authority if it so requests or if such deposit is required under the applicable data protection law.
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).
The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
Variation 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.
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.
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.
Obligation 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.
