2.     Processing of Customer Personal Data

2.1. The parties acknowledge that Customer is the Controller and that Tagado is acting in the capacity of a Processor. In some circumstances, Customer may additionally or alternatively be a Processor, in which case Customer appoints Tagado as an authorised sub-processor, which shall not change the obligations of the parties under this Addendum as Tagado will remain a Processor in any such event.

2.2. Tagado shall process Customer’s Personal Data on the documented instructions of Customer, unless otherwise required by an Applicable Law to which Tagado is subject. In which case, Tagado shall notify Customer if, in its opinion, any instruction infringes the Data Protection Legislation or other Union or Member State data protection provisions, unless that law prohibits such notification. Such notification will not constitute a general obligation on the part of Tagado to monitor or interpret the laws applicable to Customer, and such notification will not constitute legal advice to Customer.

2.3. Customer warrants that it has all the necessary rights to allow Tagado to Process Personal Data in relation to the Services, and that one or more lawful bases set forth in Data Protection Legislation support the lawfulness of the Processing.

2.4. Annex 1 to this Addendum sets out certain information as required by Article 28(3) of the GDPR according to which, Personal Data may be processed by Tagado. Customer warrants it is an accurate reflection of the Processing activities pursuant to this Addendum and the Agreement.

3.     Confidentiality

Without prejudice to any existing contractual arrangements between the parties, Tagado shall ensure that any person who it authorizes to Process the Personal Data on its behalf for the provision of the Service, shall be subject to a duty of confidentiality.

4.     Security

Taken into account the measures required by Article 32 of the GDPR, and the state of the art, the costs of implementation and nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural person, Tagado shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security of the Processing of Personal Data appropriate to the risk. Such measures are detailed under Annex 2 and may be updated by Tagado from time to time, provided that such updates shall not materially decrease the protection of Personal Data for Data Subjects.

5.     Sub-processing

5.1. Customer authorizes Tagado to appoint (and permit each Sub-processor to appoint) Sub-processors listed under Annex 3 attached hereto, and in accordance with this Addendum and any restrictions in the Agreement.

5.2. Tagado shall inform Customer as soon as reasonably practicable of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of any of the Authorised Sub-Processors that will Process any Customer Personal Data (“New Sub-Processor”) which shall be detailed at: http://tagado.com/sub-processors. If, within 14 calendar days of receipt of that notice, Customer notifies Tagado in writing of any objections made on reasonable grounds, to the proposed appointment of a New Sub-Processor, the parties will endeavor to agree (acting reasonably), without undue delay, the commercially reasonable steps to be taken to ensure that the new Sub-processors is compliant with Article 28(4) of the GDPR. In the absence of a resolution, Tagado will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide Customer with the same level of service described in the Agreement, without using the objected Sub-Processor to Process Customer’s Personal Data.

5.3. Where the Customer reasonably argues, that the risks involved with the Sub-processing activities are still unacceptable, in the context of Article 28(4) and in relation to the appropriate steps, within the requisite time frame, and the parties are unable to resolve the issues within such time frame, Customer’s sole remedy will be to terminate the Agreement.

6.2. When Customer is unable to perform according to section 6.1, and therefore requires Tagado’s assistance, while taking into account the nature of the Processing, Tagado shall assist Customer, upon Customer’s request and at the Customer’s cost, by using appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible to comply with requests to exercise Data Subject rights, under the Data Protection Legislation.

7.     Personal Data Breach

7.1. When Tagado becomes aware of a data breach that has a material impact on the Processing of Personal Data that is the subject to the Agreement, it shall notify Customer without undue delay about the data breach. Tagado shall cooperate with Customer and follow Customer’s reasonable instructions with regard to such data breach, to enable Customer to perform an investigation into the data breach, formulate a correct response and take suitable further steps in respect to the data breach.

7.2. Tagado shall, at Customer’s cost, cooperate with Customer and take the reasonable commercial steps which shall reasonably be instructed by Customer, to assist in the investigation and mitigation of every occurring Personal Data Breach.

9.     Audit Rights

9.1. Subject to section ‎9.2 and ‎9.3, Tagado shall make available to Customer upon a reasonable request, information which is reasonably necessary to demonstrate compliance with Article 28(3) of the GDPR.

9.2. Where applicable, if Customer is not otherwise satisfied by its audit rights pursuant to the Agreement, Tagado shall, at the Customer’s costs, allow for audits in relation to the Processing of the Customer’s Personal Data by Tagado, provided that:

In the event of such an objection, Customer shall appoint another auditor or conduct the audit itself.

10.  Transfers

10.1.       Information may be transferred to third party companies and individuals to facilitate Tagado’s Services, who are located in a country outside of the EEA. To the extent that Tagado or its Sub-processors Processes Customer Personal Data in countries outside of the EEA that do not provide an adequate level of data protection, as determined by the European Commission or other adequate authority, the applicable model of the SCC shall apply and shall be incorporated herein upon execution of this Addendum by the parties or Tagado shall otherwise ensure that the continuity of protection of Personal Data shall be maintained for any respective onward transfers. With respect to each such data transfer, Tagado shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security, appropriate to the risk, while taking into account the state of the art, costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of Processing as well as the likelihood of a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons. Annex II of the SCCs shall be deemed completed with the information set out in Annex 2 to this Addendum.

10.2.       To the extent that Tagado or Customer are relying on a specific statutory mechanism to normalize international data transfers and that mechanism is subsequently modified, revoked, or held in a court of a competent jurisdiction to be invalid, Tagado or Customer agree to cooperate in good faith to promptly suspend the transfer or to pursue a suitable alternate mechanism that can lawfully support the transfer.
