2.4 Controller sets forth the details of the Processing of Controller Personal Data, as required by Article 28(3) of the GDPR in Schedule 1 (Details of Processing), attached hereto and representing its integral part.

  1. Processor Personnel

Processor shall take reasonable steps to ensure that access to the Controller Personal Data is limited on a need-to-know/access basis and that all Processor personnel receiving such access are subject to confidentiality undertakings or professional or statutory obligations of confidentiality in connection with their access/use of Controller’s Personal Data.

  1. Security

Processor shall, in relation to the Controller Personal Data, implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure an appropriate level of security, including, as appropriate and applicable, the measures referred to in Article 32(1) of the GDPR. In assessing the appropriate level of security, Processor shall take into account the risks that are presented by Processing, in particular from a Personal Data Breach.

  1. Sub-Processing 

5.1 The Processor shall obtain prior written consent of Controller with respect to each Sub-Processor it engages for processing. Current Sub-Processors are listed in Schedule 2 (Sub-processors).

5.2 With respect to each new Sub-Processor, Processor shall:

5.2.1 Before the Sub-Processor first Processes Controller Personal Data, take reasonable steps (for instance by way of reviewing privacy policies as appropriate) to ensure that the Sub-Processor is committed to providing the level of protection for Controller Personal Data required by the Agreement; and

5.2.2 Ensure that the arrangement between the Processor and the Sub-Processor is governed by a written contract, including terms that offer a materially similar level of protection for Controller Personal Data as those set out in this DPA that meet the requirements of Applicable Laws.

  1. Data Subject Rights 

6.1 Controller shall be solely responsible for compliance with any statutory obligations concerning requests to exercise Data Subject rights under Data Protection Laws (e.g., for access, rectification, deletion of Controller Personal Data, etc.). Taking into account the nature of the Processing, Processor shall reasonably endeavour to assist Controller insofar as feasible, to fulfil Controller’s said obligations with respect to such Data Subject to requests, as applicable, at Controller’s sole expense.

6.2 Processor shall:

6.2.1 Promptly notify Controller if it receives a request from a Data Subject under any Data Protection Law in respect of Controller Personal Data; and

6.2.2 Ensure that it does not respond to that request except on the documented instructions of Controller or as required by Applicable Laws to which the Processor is subject, in which case Processor shall, to the extent permitted by Applicable Laws, inform Controller of that legal requirement before it responds to the request.

  1. Personal Data Breach 

7.1 Processor shall notify Controller without undue delay upon Processor becoming aware of a Personal Data Breach affecting Controller Personal Data, in connection with the Processing of such Controller Personal Data by the Processor. In such event, Processor shall provide Controller with information (to the extent in Processor’s possession) to assist Controller to meet any obligations to inform Data Subjects or Data Protection authorities of the Personal Data Breach under the Data Protection Laws.

7.2 At the written request of the Controller, Processor shall reasonably cooperate with Controller and take such commercially reasonable steps as are agreed by the Parties or necessary under Privacy Protection Laws to assist in the investigation, mitigation and remediation of each such Personal Data Breach.

  1. Data Protection Impact Assessment and Prior Consultation

At the written request of the Controller, the Processor shall provide reasonable assistance to Controller with any data protection impact assessments or prior consultations with Supervising Authorities or other competent data privacy authorities, as required under any applicable Data Protection Laws. Such assistance shall be solely in relation to Processing of Controller Personal Data by the Processor.

  1. Deletion or Return of Controller Personal Data 

9.1 Subject to Section 9.2, Processor shall promptly and in any event within up to 15 business days of the date of cessation of any Services involving the Processing of Controller Personal Data (the “Cessation Date”), delete or pseudonymize all copies of those Controller Personal Data, except such copies as authorized including under this DPA or required to be retained in accordance with applicable law and/or regulation.

9.2 Subject to the Agreement, Processor may retain Controller Personal Data to the extent authorized or required by Applicable Laws, provided that Processor shall ensure the confidentiality of all such Controller Personal Data and shall ensure that it is only processed for such legal purpose(s).

9.3 Upon Controller’s prior written request, Processor shall provide written certification to Controller that it has complied with this Section 9.

  1. Audit Rights 

10.1 Subject to Sections 10.2 and 10.3, Processor shall make available to a reputable auditor mandated by Controller in coordination with Processor, upon prior written request, such information necessary to reasonably demonstrate compliance with this DPA, and shall allow for audits, including inspections, by such reputable auditor mandated by the Controller in relation to the Processing of the Controller Personal Data by the Processor, provided that such third-party auditor shall be subject to confidentiality obligations.

10.2 In the event that it is determined that incidents have occurred that necessitate the implementation or execution of additional security measures by Processor, the costs for such measures, as well as any costs related to the remediation of such incidents, will be borne entirely and exclusively by Processor.

10.3 Controller shall give Processor reasonable prior written notice of any audit or inspection to be conducted under Section 10.1 and shall use (and ensure that each of its mandated auditors uses) its best efforts to avoid causing (or, if it cannot avoid, to minimize) any damage, injury or disruption to the Processors’ premises, equipment, personnel and business while its personnel are on those premises in the course of such an audit or inspection. Controller and Processor shall mutually agree upon the scope, timing and duration of the audit or inspection in addition to the reimbursement rate for which Controller shall be responsible. Processor need not give access to its premises for the purposes of such an audit or inspection:

10.3.1 To any individual unless he or she produces reasonable evidence of identity and authority;

10.3.2 If Processor was not given written notice of such audit or inspection at least 2 weeks in advance;

10.3.3 Outside normal business hours at those premises, unless the audit or inspection needs to be conducted on an emergency basis and Controller has given notice to Processor that this is the case before attendance outside those hours begins;

10.3.4 For premises outside the Processor’s control (such as data storage farms of AWS), if applicable

10.3.5 For the purposes of more than one (1) audit or inspection, in respect of each Processor, in any calendar year, except for any additional audits or inspections which: Controller reasonably considers necessary because of genuine concerns as to Processor’s compliance with this DPA; or Controller is required to carry out by Data Protection Law, a Supervisory Authority or any similar regulatory authority responsible for the enforcement of Data Protection Laws in any country or territory, where Controller has identified its concerns or the relevant requirement or request in its prior written notice to Processor of the audit or inspection.

  1. General Terms

11.1 Governing Law and Jurisdiction:

11.1.1 The Parties to this DPA hereby submit to the choice of jurisdiction stipulated in the Terms with respect to any disputes or claims howsoever arising under this DPA, including disputes regarding its existence, validity, or termination or the consequences of its nullity; and

11.1.2 This DPA and all non-contractual or other obligations arising out of or in connection with it are governed by the laws of the country or territory stipulated for this purpose in the Terms.

11.2 Order of Precedence. Nothing in this DPA reduces the Processor’s obligations under the Agreement in relation to the protection of Personal Data or permits the Processor to Process (or permit the Processing of) Personal Data in a manner, which is prohibited by the Agreement. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between this DPA and the Advertiser’s Privacy Policy, the Advertiser’s Privacy Policy shall prevail provided only that the procedure prevailing through the Advertiser’s Privacy Policy shall not constitute a breach or infringement of any Applicable Laws. This DPA is not intended to and does not in any way limit or derogate from Controller’s own obligations and liabilities towards the Processor under the Agreement, and/or pursuant to the GDPR or any law applicable to Controller, in connection with the collection, handling, and use of Personal Data by Controller or other processors or their sub-processors, including with respect to the transfer or provision or Personal Data to Processor and/or providing access thereto to Processor.

11.3 Changes in Data Protection Laws:

11.3.1 Controller may be at least forty-five (45) calendar days prior to written notice to Processor, request in writing any variations to this DPA if they are required, as a result of any change in, or decision of a competent authority under any applicable Data Protection Law, to allow Processing of those Controller Personal Data to be made (or continue to be made) without breach of that Data Protection Law; and

11.3.2 If Controller gives notice with respect to its request to modify this DPA under Section 11.4: Processor shall make commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate such modification request, and Controller shall not unreasonably withhold or delay agreement to any consequential variations to this DPA proposed by Processor to protect the Processor against additional risks, or to indemnify and compensate Processor for any further steps and costs associated with the variations made herein.

11.4 If Controller gives notice under Section 11.3.1, the Parties shall promptly discuss the proposed variations and negotiate in good faith with a view to agreeing and implementing those or alternative variations designed to address the requirements identified in Controller’s notice as soon as is reasonably practicable. In the event that the Parties are unable to reach such an agreement within 30 days, then Controller or Processor may, by written notice to the other Party, with immediate effect, terminate the Agreement to the extent that it relates to the Services which are affected by the proposed variations (or lack thereof).

11.5 Should any provision of this DPA be invalid or unenforceable, then the remainder of this DPA shall remain valid and in force. The invalid or unenforceable provision shall either be (i) amended as necessary to ensure its validity and enforceability, while preserving the Parties’ intentions as closely as possible or, if this is not possible, (ii) construed in a manner as if the invalid or unenforceable part had never been contained therein.

  1. GDPR applicability (for clarification purposes)

As per Art. 3 of the GDPR, GDPR applies to the processing of personal data: 1) in the context of the activities of an establishment of a controller or a processor in the Union, regardless of whether the processing takes place in the Union or not, 2) of data subjects who are in the Union by a controller or processor not established in the Union […], 3) by a controller not established in the Union, but in a place where Member State law applies by virtue of public international law.

Therefore, a Controller that is not established in the EU and does not process Personal Data of EU/EEA data subjects is not subject to GDPR and does not become subject to GDPR by working with REPLUG, as a processor based in European Union.

Acceptance of this DPA by the aforementioned non-EU Advertisers only ensures that the processing made by REPLUG remains lawful with regard to the Processor’s obligations under EU law. The Controller obligations mentioned in the DPA do not apply to such non-EU Controllers that do not process the Personal Data of EU/EEA data subjects.
