Data Protection Appendix
The Processor and the Controller are referred to individually as “Party” and collectively as “Parties”.
1. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
The scope of the service for which the personal data is processed is described in the Terms. This DPA is part of the Terms and supersedes any conflicting provisions of the Terms concerning data processing.
The Processor shall act in accordance with this DPA while providing the Service and follow the Controller’s instructions concerning data protection and the Data Protection Laws while offering the Service to the Controller. “Data Protection Laws” means national and EU legislation concerning data protection, such as General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”, EU 2016/679). The terms related to data protection which are not defined in this DPA, are used in accordance with the GDPR.
2. PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
The scope of the processing is described further in the Annex A (Description on the Processing of Personal Data). Any expanding of the processing of personal data must be agreed separately. You expressly acknowledge and agree that sensitive personal data, such as health data or data revealing religious beliefs, should not be transferred to the Service.
Both Parties shall be responsible to ensure that processing of personal data is done in accordance with Data Protection Laws and good data processing practices.
The Controller shall take the necessary measures to ensure that the processing of personal data to be transferred to the Processor complies with the Data Protection Laws.
The Processor shall process personal data in compliance with the written instructions given by the Controller as well as the Data Protection Laws and this DPA. The Processor shall notify the Controller without delay if the Processor considers that the Controller’s instructions infringe the Data Protection Laws. At the effective date of the Terms, the complete written instructions given by the Controller to the Processor are included in this DPA and the Terms. The implementation of the Controller’s additional or amended instructions shall be agreed separately.
The Processor and people working under the Processor must keep the personal data received from the Controller confidential and ensure that only authorised persons can access the personal data for processing. The Processor shall ensure that persons authorised to process the personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
4. DURATION OF THE OBLIGATIONS
This DPA is in force for as long as the Terms are in force and for as long as, after the termination of the Terms, it is necessary to complete the tasks related to the processing of personal data (such as returning the personal data to the Controller and/or deleting the personal data in accordance with the Controller’s instructions) or longer, if required by applicable legislation.
Upon termination of the Terms, the Processor shall delete (or, if separately agreed and at Controller’s expense, return) within a reasonable time all personal data processed on behalf of the Controller, unless the retention of said personal data is required under the Data Protection Laws.
The Processor may use subprocessors in the processing of personal data based on this DPA. The current list of approved subprocessors is included in this DPA’s Annex B (Subprocessors used in Data Processing).
The Processor shall ensure that the subprocessors are bound by a written contract that complies with the obligations set forth in Article 28 of the GDPR. The Processor is responsible for its subprocessors’ obligations under this DPA the same way as it is responsible for its own obligations.
The Processor shall inform the Controller in writing of any intended changes concerning the addition of new subprocessors processing personal data before the change takes effect. If the Controller objects the change, it may terminate the Terms by a thirty (30) days’ written notice to the Processor. If the Controller does not object the change within seven (7) days from the receipt of the written notice, the Processor may use the new subprocessors.
6. PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA OUTSIDE THE EU/EEA
The Processor shall not transfer personal data to a country outside the EU/EEA or otherwise process personal data in a country outside the EU/EEA without prior written authorization of the Controller.
If personal data is transferred outside the EU/EEA, there must be appropriate safeguards in place for the transfer such as standard data protection clauses adopted by the Commission. The Processor shall provide evidence of these safeguards to the Controller upon request.
7. INFORMATION SECURITY
The Processor shall take any appropriate technical and organisational measures to combat and prevent unauthorised and unlawful processing of personal data and to prevent unintentional loss, change, destruction of or damage to personal data.
The Processor shall notify the Controller without undue delay in writing of any personal data breach or other incidents where the security of the personal data processed on behalf of the Controller is compromised or may be compromised.

b. communicate the name and contact details of a person from whom more information can be obtained;
c. describe the likely consequences of the personal data breach;
d. describe the measures taken or proposed to be taken by the Processor to address the personal data breach, including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects.
Where it is not possible to provide the above-mentioned information at the same time, the information may be provided in phases without undue further delay.
8. RIGHT TO AUDIT
The Controller and/or a third-party mandated by the Controller, shall have the right to conduct an audit, including inspections, to evaluate the fulfilment of the Processor’s obligations under this DPA for the data protection and the level of security for processing personal data. The mandated third party may not be a competitor of the Processor.
The scope and the time of the audit shall always be separately agreed upon between the Parties and the audit may not unnecessarily burden the Processor or endanger the Processor’s or the Processor’s other customers’ delivery, quality, security or confidentiality.
Each Party is liable for its own costs related to the audit provided that the Controller shall bear the costs of the third party auditor. In case more than one (1) audit takes place within a calendar year, the Controller shall bear all costs incurred by the Processor.
9. OBLIGATION TO ASSIST
