(a) Scope of Personal Data under Article 3.1(a) of the Data Processing Agreement
(b) Scope of Personal Data under Article 3.1(b) of the Data Processing Agreement
3.3 If the Controller provides the Processor with, or if in connection with the Processor’s activities performed for the Controller the Processor otherwise gains access to, any other Personal Data of Data Subjects or if Personal Data of other data subjects are provided to the Processor and at the same time, the Processor acts as a processor of such Personal Data for the Controller, the Processor is obliged to also process and protect that Personal Data in compliance with the requirements of (i) the Regulation (ii) the Applicable Privacy Laws, and (iii) this Data Processing Agreement.
3.4 The Processor will process the Personal Data of Data Subjects until the expiration of this Data Processing Agreement.

The Processor may at its sole discretion refuse to adhere to an instruction that would result in breaching the Regulation or Applicable Privacy Laws.

4.8 The Controller shall notify the Processor of any inspection or an initiation of administrative proceedings concerning imposing a remedial measure and/or imposing of a fine carried out by a relevant Supervisory Authority (“Administrative Proceedings”), insofar as the inspection or Administrative Proceedings concerns (i) Personal Data processed by the Processor for the Controller, or (ii) parameters of the Service provided to the Controller and if it is anticipated that carrying out of such an inspection or Administrative Proceeding may affect such parameters.

4.13 The Processor agrees to assist the Controller in securing the obligations stipulated in the Regulation, in particular the obligation to secure the processing of Personal Data, report events of Personal Data Breach, secure data protection impact assessment or prior consultation with the Supervisory Authority, with regard to the nature of the processing and of the information available to the Processor.
5.1 Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the Processor agrees under Article 32 of the Regulation, to implement all appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of Personal Data in the manner described in the Regulation or other applicable laws to exclude the possibility of unauthorised or accidental access to Personal Data, their alteration, destruction or loss, unauthorised transfers, unauthorised processing, or any other misuse of Personal Data.

(g) to ensure that remote transfers of Personal Data will only be carried out by means of a non-public network or by secure transfer via public networks, in particular via network security communication protocol. Taking into account the nature, scope, context and the risks of varying likelihood and severity some of the Personal Data may be transmitted via e-mails,
(h) to ensure by appropriate technical means the ability to restore the availability of and access to Personal Data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident in accordance to the parameters for the particular Service agreed upon in the Agreement,
(i) to ensure a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing.
5.3 The Processor may engage another processor (“Other Processor”) to process Personal Data (general authorisation).

The Controller shall have the opportunity to object to the addition of a new Other Processors under the conditions of the Agreement. In case of objections, Article 17(3) of the GTC applies.
5.4 If the Processor engages an Other Processor for carrying out specific processing activities, the same data protection obligations as set out in this Data Processing Agreement must be imposed on that Other Processor by way of a contract, in particular providing sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in such a manner that the processing will meet the requirements of the Regulation.
5.5 The Controller acknowledges that services provided by Other Processors listed in the Bulletin Board may include transferring of Personal Data outside of the EU/EEA. The Processor guarantees that any transfer of Personal Data to third countries will only take place under the conditions set out in Articles 44-49 of the Regulation.
