2. Undertakings regarding Personal Data
- Customer hereby appoints Assisty for the Processing of the Customer Personal Data on its behalf for the purposes set forth in the Agreement. Assisty shall Process the Customer Personal Data only (i) to perform its obligations set forth in the Agreement, (ii) in accordance with written instructions from Customer, including with regard to any cross-border transfers, and (iii) as needed to comply with applicable law, regulation or other legal requirement.
- Each party agrees that the Personal Data, including Customer Personal Data, shall be treated as confidential information under this DPA. In addition, each party shall at all times comply with applicable laws relating to data protection in the relevant jurisdiction.
- Personal Data shall remain the property of the disclosing party. The parties acknowledge that Customer is a Controller and maintains control over Data Subjects’ Personal Data and Assisty is a Processor.
- Assisty will process Customer Personal Data only to the extent strictly necessary for the purpose of providing the services in accordance with the ToS and any further written Instructions from the Customer that are mutually agreed upon in writing. In particular, Assisty will collect the sales transaction, catalog information (product, category, brand), inventory data, customer info (DOB, Gender, Location, Group). Assist will not collect detailed customer info such as: name, email, phone, street address. Assisty agrees that:
- it will implement and maintain a reasonable and appropriate security program comprising adequate security, technical and organizational measures to protect against unauthorized, unlawful or accidental processing, use, erasure, loss or destruction of, or damage to, Customer Personal Data.
- it will not modify, alter, delete, publish or disclose any Customer Personal Data to any third party, nor allow any third party to process such personal data on Assisty’ behalf unless the third party is bound to similar confidentiality and data handling provisions;
iii. only its personnel who “need-to-know” will be given access to Customer Personal Data to the extent necessary to perform its obligations under the ToS and any further Instructions. It shall provide adequate training to its staff and ensure that they comply with the obligations in this DPA;
- it will only process Customer Personal Data to the extent necessary to perform its obligations under the Agreement and upon written instructions of the Customer (only as mutually agreed upon), and in accordance with applicable laws; and
- It will inform Customer immediately in case it believes that an Instruction violates the GDPR and shall cease processing the Company Personal Data that is subject to the Instruction in question. However, Assisty’s performance of an Instruction subsequently deemed to be unlawful shall not be considered a breach of Assisty’s obligations under the Agreement or this DPA.
- At Customer’s request, upon termination of your account Assisty will either delete or return all Customer Personal Data normally, no later than 60 days, unless we are required to retain the Customer Personal Data due to EU, Member State or United States laws, in which case Assisty reserves the right to retain the Customer Personal Data as may be required.
- For cross-border transfers, the parties agree as follows:
- Assisty shall not transfer any Customer Personal Data (and shall not permit its sub-processors to transfer any Customer Personal Data) to a country outside the EU or EEA that is not recognized as providing an adequate level of protection for Personal Data by the European Commission without the prior consent of Customer. Assisty understands that Customer must approve and document that adequate protection for the Customer Personal Data will exist after such cross-border transfer. Accordingly, the parties hereby agree that the Standard Contractual Clauses (Processors), approved by the European Commission, will apply to the Processing by Assisty of the Customer Personal Data in any country outside the EU or EEA determined not to provide an adequate level of protection.
- Customer agrees that it is a Data Exporter (notwithstanding that Customer or its Affiliate(s) may be located outside the EU or EEA), and Assisty agrees it is the Data Importer. Assisty will ensure that the Standard Contractual Clauses (Processors) are incorporated into its agreement with its sub-processors, as applicable. If the Standard Contractual Clauses (Processors) are amended, replaced, or repealed by the European Commission or under applicable law, the parties shall cooperate in good faith to enter into an updated version of the Standard Contractual Clauses (Processors) or negotiate an alternative solution to enable the contemplated cross-border transfers.
- The parties acknowledge that Customer may from time to time be in possession of Personal Data relating to Assisty’s personnel. Assisty warrants that it has provided all necessary notifications and obtained all necessary consents, authorizations, approvals and/or agreements as required under any applicable law in order to enable: (i) the disclosure of Assisty’s Personal Data to Customer; and (ii) further processing of such Assisty Personal Data by Customer.
3. Customer undertakings and Assisty’s assistance
- Customer warrants that it has all necessary rights to provide to Assisty the Customer Personal Data for processing in connection with the provision of the Services.
- To the extent required by applicable law, Customer is responsible for ensuring that any Data Subject consents that may be necessary to this processing are obtained, and for ensuring that a record of such consents is maintained, including any consent to use Personal Data that is obtained from third parties. Should such consent be revoked by a Data Subject, Customer is responsible for communicating the fact of such revocation to Assisty, and Assisty remains responsible for implementing any Customer Instruction with respect to the further processing of that Personal Data, or, as may be in accordance with any of Assisty’s legal obligations.
- Customer understands, as a Controller, that it is responsible (as between Customer and Assisty) for:
- determining the lawfulness of any processing, performing any required data protection impact assessments, and accounting to regulators and individuals, as may be needed;
- making reasonable efforts to verify parental consent when data is collected on a Data Subject under 16 years of age;
iii. providing relevant privacy notices to Data Subjects as may be required in your jurisdiction, including notice of their rights and provide the mechanisms for individuals to exercise those rights;
- responding to requests from individuals about their data and the processing of the same, including requests to have personal data altered, corrected, or erased, and providing copies of the actual data processed;
- implementing your own appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure and demonstrate processing in accord with this DPA; and
- notifying individuals and any relevant regulators or authorities of any incident as may be required by law in your jurisdiction.
- Assisty shall assist the Customer by implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is reasonably and commercially possible (in Assisty’s sole determination and discretion), in fulfilling Customer’s obligations to respond to Data Subjects’ requests to exercise their rights under the GDPR. For avoidance of doubt, Assisty shall not respond directly to Data Subjects’ requests unless instructed to do so by Customer.
- On an annual basis, Assisty will procure an internal audit of its code base and systems to demonstrate compliance with its obligations under this DPA. Upon written request, Assisty shall make available to the Customer information reasonably necessary to demonstrate compliance with its obligations under this DPA, including an executive summary of its audit. Customer may conduct up to (1) audit or inspection per contractual year and shall pay all costs associated with any independent agent or auditor it may designate to conduct such audit and/or inspection.
4. Personal Data Breach
- When either party becomes aware of an actual or threatened Personal Data Breach that impacts the processing of Customer Personal Data, it shall promptly notify the other about the Personal Data Breach and shall reasonably cooperate in order to enable the other party to perform a thorough investigation into the incident, to formulate a correct response, and to take suitable further steps in respect of the incident.
- Both parties shall at all times have in place written procedures which enable them to promptly respond to the other about a Personal Data Breach. Where the incident is reasonably likely to require a data breach notification under applicable laws, the party responsible for the incident shall notify the other without undue delay of having become aware of such an incident.
5. Liability and Indemnity
- Each party indemnifies the other and holds them harmless against all claims, actions, third party claims, losses, damages and expenses incurred by the indemnified party and arising directly or indirectly out of or in connection with a breach of its obligations under this DPA.
6. Duration and Termination
- This DPA is effective as of the data written above shall continue until it is changed or terminated in accordance with the ToS or so long as Assisty continues to provide the Services to Customer.
- Termination or expiration of this DPA shall not discharge the parties from the confidentiality obligations herein.
In witness whereof, this Agreement is executed by duly authorized officers of the parties and shall be effective as of the Effective Date.
