1.1 The Parties agree that, in respect of Personal Data, the Partner shall be the Data Processor and Ontrack shall be the Sub-Processor. It is acknowledged that the Partner shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity and reliability of any Personal Data and of the means by which it acquired such Personal Data. Partner shall enter into a separate Data Processing Agreement with the Data Controller. Ontrack as a Sub-Processor understands that the Partner as Data Processor acts on behalf of a Data Controller for the Personal Data covered by the agreement, and that sub-processors are subject to similar obligations as the processor is required by the Data Controller in accordance with Article 28 (4) GDPR.

1.2 The Partner warrants, represents and undertakes, that: (i) all Personal Data used in connection with the services pursuant to the Terms shall comply in all respects with Data Protection Laws; (ii) all instructions given by it to Ontrack in respect of Personal Data shall at all times be in accordance with Data Protection Laws; (iii) it has obtained all necessary consents from any Data Subject whose Personal Data is included within the Personal Data or otherwise has the appropriate legal permission to provide the Personal Data to Ontrack; and (iv) it will comply with the terms of this Data Processing Agreement.

1.4 Within the scope of the commissioned processing, all data handed over by the Partner shall be processed. The categories of personal data and the categories of data subjects are known to the Partner and are specified for the Sub-Processor if this is necessary in the context of the order. For some Services and Products, knowledge of the content of the Partner’s data is usually not relevant for the Sub-Processor.

 

2 Instructions and details of Processing

2.1 The Processing of Personal Data to be carried out by Ontrack under this Data Processing Agreement shall comprise the Processing as required for Ontrack to provide the respective Service or Product.

 

3 Technical and organisational measures

3.1 Ontrack shall implement and maintain, at its cost and expense, appropriate technical and organisational measures in relation to the Processing and security of Personal Data in accordance with Data Protection Laws and in accordance with Articles 32-34 of the GDPR in particular. Ontrack shall ensure that such technical and organisational measures are appropriate to the particular risks that are presented by its Processing activities, in particular to protect Personal Data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access.

 

4 Using Personnel and Sub-Processors

4.1 Save as set out in clause 4.2, Ontrack shall not engage any Sub-sub-Processor for carrying out any processing activities in respect of the Partner data without the Partner’s prior written authorisation. In the event that authorisation is provided, prior to making any disclosure to any approved sub-processor, Ontrack shall put in place written terms with the Sub-sub-Processor which are equivalent to those set out in this Data Processing Agreement. It is acknowledged and accepted that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Ontrack shall remain fully liable to the Partner for the performance of each Sub-sub-Processor’s obligations. Ontrack shall inform the Partner of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of such Sub-sub-Processors and allow Partner a reasonable opportunity to object, on reasonable grounds, to any such changes or replacements.

5 Assistance with the Partner’s compliance and Data Subject rights

5.1 Ontrack shall promptly refer all Data Subject Requests it receives to the Partner.

Ontrack shall procure that its Sub-Processors shall undertake the same actions with regard to Personal Data.

9.2 In the event that Personal Data remains within Ontrack’s possession or control for any period longer than 12 (twelve) months without any active instructions from the Partner, Ontrack shall delete such Personal Data.

SECTION II – OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES

 

Clause 8

Data protection safeguards

The data exporter warrants that it has used reasonable efforts to determine that the data importer is able, through the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational measures, to satisfy its obligations under these Clauses.

 

8.1 Instructions


  1. The data exporter has informed the data importer that it acts as processor under the instructions of its controller(s), which the data exporter shall make available to the data importer prior to processing.
  2. The data importer shall process the personal data only on documented instructions from the controller, as communicated to the data importer by the data exporter, and any additional documented instructions from the data exporter. Such additional instructions shall not conflict with the instructions from the controller. The controller or data exporter may give further documented instructions regarding the data processing throughout the duration of the contract.
  3. The data importer shall immediately inform the data exporter if it is unable to follow those instructions. Where the data importer is unable to follow the instructions from the controller, the data exporter shall immediately notify the controller.

The data exporter warrants that it has imposed the same data protection obligations on the data importer as set out in the contract or other legal act under Union or Member State law between the controller and the data exporter .

8.2 Purpose limitation

The data importer shall process the personal data only for the specific purpose(s) of the transfer, as set out in Annex I.B., unless on further instructions from the controller, as communicated to the data importer by the data exporter, or from the data exporter.

8.3 Transparency

On request, the data exporter shall make a copy of these Clauses, including the Appendix as completed by the Parties, available to the data subject free of charge. To the extent necessary to protect business secrets or other confidential information, including personal data, the data exporter may redact part of the text of the Appendix prior to sharing a copy, but shall provide a meaningful summary where the data subject would otherwise not be able to understand its content or exercise his/her rights. On request, the Parties shall provide the data subject with the reasons for the redactions, to the extent possible without revealing the redacted information.

8.4 Accuracy

If the data importer becomes aware that the personal data it has received is inaccurate, or has become outdated, it shall inform the data exporter without undue delay. In this case, the data importer shall cooperate with the data exporter to rectify or erase the data.

8.5 Duration of processing and erasure or return of data

Processing by the data importer shall only take place for the duration specified in Annex I.B. After the end of the provision of the processing services, the data importer shall, at the choice of the data exporter, delete all personal data processed on behalf of the controller and certify to the data exporter that it has done so, or return to the data exporter all personal data processed on its behalf and delete existing copies. Until the data is deleted or returned, the data importer shall continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses. In case of local laws applicable to the data importer that prohibit return or deletion of the personal data, the data importer warrants that it will continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses and will only process it to the extent and for as long as required under that local law. This is without prejudice to Clause 14, in particular the requirement for the data importer under Clause 14(e) to notify the data exporter throughout the duration of the contract if it has reason to believe that it is or has become subject to laws or practices not in line with the requirements under Clause 14(a).

8.6 Security of processing

  1. The data importer and, during transmission, also the data exporter shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of the data, including protection against a breach of security leading to accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access to that data (hereinafter “personal data breach”). In assessing the appropriate level of security, they shall take due account of the state of the art, the costs of implementation, the nature, scope, context and purpose(s) of processing and the risks involved in the processing for the data subject. The Parties shall in particular consider having recourse to encryption or pseudonymisation, including during transmission, where the purpose of processing can be fulfilled in that manner. In case of pseudonymisation, the additional information for attributing the personal data to a specific data subject shall, where possible, remain under the exclusive control of the data exporter or the controller. In complying with its obligations under this paragraph, the data importer shall at least implement the technical and organisational measures specified in Annex II. The data importer shall carry out regular checks to ensure that these measures continue to provide an appropriate level of security.
  2. The data importer shall grant access to the data to members of its personnel only to the extent strictly necessary for the implementation, management and monitoring of the contract. It shall ensure that persons authorised to process the personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
  3. In the event of a personal data breach concerning personal data processed by the data importer under these Clauses, the data importer shall take appropriate measures to address the breach, including measures to mitigate its adverse effects. The data importer shall also notify, without undue delay, the data exporter and, where appropriate and feasible, the controller after having become aware of the breach. Such notification shall contain the details of a contact point where more information can be obtained, a description of the nature of the breach (including, where possible, categories and approximate number of data subjects and personal data records concerned), its likely consequences and the measures taken or proposed to address the data breach, including measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects. Where, and in so far as, it is not possible to provide all information at the same time, the initial notification shall contain the information then available and further information shall, as it becomes available, subsequently be provided without undue delay.
  4. The data importer shall cooperate with and assist the data exporter to enable the data exporter to comply with its obligations under Regulation (EU) 2016/679, in particular to notify its controller so that the latter may in turn notify the competent supervisory authority and the affected data subjects, taking into account the nature of processing and the information available to the data importer.

8.7 Sensitive data

Where the transfer involves personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, or biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or a person’s sex life or sexual orientation, or data relating to criminal convictions and offences (hereinafter “sensitive data”), the data importer shall apply the specific restrictions and/or additional safeguards set out in Annex I.B.

8.8 Onward transfers

The data importer shall only disclose the personal data to a third party on documented instructions from the controller, as communicated to the data importer by the data exporter. In addition, the data may only be disclosed to a third party located outside the European Union (in the same country as the data importer or in another third country, hereinafter “onward transfer”) if the third party is or agrees to be bound by these Clauses, under the appropriate Module, or if:

    1. the onward transfer is to a country benefitting from an adequacy decision pursuant to Article 45 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 that covers the onward transfer;
    2. the third party otherwise ensures appropriate safeguards pursuant to Articles 46 or 47 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679;
    3. the onward transfer is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims in the context of specific administrative, regulatory or judicial proceedings; or
    4. the onward transfer is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.

Any onward transfer is subject to compliance by the data importer with all the other safeguards under these Clauses, in particular purpose limitation.

8.9 Documentation and compliance

  • The data importer shall promptly and adequately deal with enquiries from the data exporter or the controller that relate to the processing under these Clauses.
  • The Parties shall be able to demonstrate compliance with these Clauses. In particular, the data importer shall keep appropriate documentation on the processing activities carried out on behalf of the controller.
  • The data importer shall make all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations set out in these Clauses available to the data exporter, which shall provide it to the controller.
  • The data importer shall allow for and contribute to audits by the data exporter of the processing activities covered by these Clauses, at reasonable intervals or if there are indications of non-compliance. The same shall apply where the data exporter requests an audit on instructions of the controller. In deciding on an audit, the data exporter may take into account relevant certifications held by the data importer.
  • Where the audit is carried out on the instructions of the controller, the data exporter shall make the results available to the controller.
  • The data exporter may choose to conduct the audit by itself or mandate an independent auditor. Audits may include inspections at the premises or physical facilities of the data importer and shall, where appropriate, be carried out with reasonable notice.
  • The Parties shall make the information referred to in paragraphs (b) and (c), including the results of any audits, available to the competent supervisory authority on request.

The Parties shall make the information referred to in paragraphs (b) and (c), including the

The Parties agree that, by complying with this Clause, the data importer fulfils its obligations under Clause 8.8. The data importer shall ensure that the sub-processor complies with the obligations to which the data importer is subject pursuant to these Clauses.
  3. The data importer shall provide, at the data exporter’s or controller’s request, a copy of such a sub-processor agreement and any subsequent amendments. To the extent necessary to protect business secrets or other confidential information, including personal data, the data importer may redact the text of the agreement prior to sharing a copy.
  4. The data importer shall remain fully responsible to the data exporter for the performance of the sub-processor’s obligations under its contract with the data importer. The data importer shall notify the data exporter of any failure by the sub-processor to fulfil its obligations under that contract.
  5. The data importer shall agree a third-party beneficiary clause with the sub-processor whereby - in the event the data importer has factually disappeared, ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent - the data exporter shall have the right to terminate the sub-processor contract and to instruct the sub-processor to erase or return the personal data.

SECTION III – LOCAL LAWS AND OBLIGATIONS IN CASE OF ACCESS BY PUBLIC AUTHORITIES

 

Clause 14

Local laws and practices affecting compliance with the Clauses

 

(where the EU processor combines the personal data received from the third country-controller with personal data collected by the processor in the EU)

 

  1. The Parties warrant that they have no reason to believe that the laws and practices in the third country of destination applicable to the processing of the personal data by the data importer, including any requirements to disclose personal data or measures authorising access by public authorities, prevent the data importer from fulfilling its obligations under these Clauses. This is based on the understanding that laws and practices that respect the essence of the fundamental rights and freedoms and do not exceed what is necessary and proportionate in a democratic society to safeguard one of the objectives listed in Article 23(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, are not in contradiction with these

  2. The Parties declare that in providing the warranty in paragraph (a), they have taken due account in particular of the following elements:
    1. the specific circumstances of the transfer, including the length of the processing chain, the number of actors involved and the transmission channels used; intended onward transfers; the type of recipient; the purpose of processing; the categories and format of the transferred personal data; the economic sector in which the transfer occurs; the storage location of the data transferred;
    2. the laws and practices of the third country of destination– including those requiring the disclosure of data to public authorities or authorising access by such authorities – relevant in light of the specific circumstances of the transfer, and the applicable limitations and safeguards;
    3. any relevant contractual, technical or organisational safeguards put in place to supplement the safeguards under these Clauses, including measures applied during transmission and to the processing of the personal data in the country of destination.
  3. The data importer warrants that, in carrying out the assessment under paragraph (b), it has made its best efforts to provide the data exporter with relevant information and agrees that it will continue to cooperate with the data exporter in ensuring compliance with these

  4. The Parties agree to document the assessment under paragraph (b) and make it available to the competent supervisory authority on

  5. The data importer agrees to notify the data exporter promptly if, after having agreed to these Clauses and for the duration of the contract, it has reason to believe that it is or has become subject to laws or practices not in line with the requirements under paragraph (a), including following a change in the laws of the third country or a measure (such as a disclosure request) indicating an application of such laws in practice that is not in line with the requirements in paragraph (a). The data exporter shall forward the notification to the controller.

  6. Following a notification pursuant to paragraph (e), or if the data exporter otherwise has reason to believe that the data importer can no longer fulfil its obligations under these Clauses, the data exporter shall promptly identify appropriate measures (e.g. technical or organisational measures to ensure security and confidentiality) to be adopted by the data exporter and/or data importer to address the situation, if appropriate in consultation with the controller]. The data exporter shall suspend the data transfer if it considers that no appropriate safeguards for such transfer can be ensured, or if instructed by The data exporter shall suspend the data transfer if it considers that no appropriate safeguards for such transfer can be ensured, or if instructed by the controller or the competent supervisory authority to do so. In this case, the data exporter shall be entitled to terminate the contract, insofar as it concerns the processing of personal data under these Clauses. If the contract involves more than two Parties, the data exporter may exercise this right to termination only with respect to the relevant Party, unless the Parties have agreed otherwise. Where the contract is terminated pursuant to this Clause, Clause 16(d) and (e) shall

 

Clause 15

Obligations of the data importer in case of access by public authorities

(where the EU processor combines the personal data received from the third country-controller with personal data collected by the processor in the EU)

 

15.1 Notification

  1. The data importer agrees to notify the data exporter and, where possible, the data subject promptly (if necessary with the help of the data exporter) if it:
    1. receives a legally binding request from a public authority, including judicial authorities, under the laws of the country of destination for the disclosure of personal data transferred pursuant to these Clauses; such notification shall include information about the personal data requested, the requesting authority, the legal basis for the request and the response provided; or
    2. becomes aware of any direct access by public authorities to personal data transferred pursuant to these Clauses in accordance with the laws of the country of destination; such notification shall include all information available to the
    The data exporter shall forward the notification to the controller.

  2. If the data importer is prohibited from notifying the data exporter and/or the data subject under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer agrees to use its best efforts to obtain a waiver of the prohibition, with a view to communicating as much information as possible, as soon as possible. The data importer agrees to document its best efforts in order to be able to demonstrate them on request of the data

  3. Where permissible under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer agrees to provide the data exporter, at regular intervals for the duration of the contract, with as much relevant information as possible on the requests received (in particular, number of requests, type of data requested, requesting authority/ies, whether requests have been challenged and the outcome of such challenges, etc.). The data exporter shall forward the information to the controller.]

  4. The data importer agrees to preserve the information pursuant to paragraphs (a) to (c) for the duration of the contract and make it available to the competent supervisory authority on

15.2 Review of legality and data minimisation

  1. The data importer agrees to review the legality of the request for disclosure, in particular whether it remains within the powers granted to the requesting public authority, and to challenge the request if, after careful assessment, it concludes that there are reasonable grounds to consider that the request is unlawful under the laws of the country of destination, applicable obligations under international law and principles of international comity. The data importer shall, under the same conditions, pursue possibilities of appeal. When challenging a request, the data importer shall seek interim measures with a view to suspending the effects of the request until the competent judicial authority has decided on its merits. It shall not disclose the personal data requested until required to do so under the applicable procedural rules. These requirements are without prejudice to the obligations of the data importer under Clause 14(e).

  2. The data importer agrees to document its legal assessment and any challenge to the request for disclosure and, to the extent permissible under the laws of the country of destination, make the documentation available to the data exporter. It shall also make it available to the competent supervisory authority on request. The data exporter shall make the assessment available to the controller.

  3. The data importer agrees to provide the minimum amount of information permissible when responding to a request for disclosure, based on a reasonable interpretation of the

 

SECTION IV – FINAL PROVISIONS

 

Clause 16

  1. The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter if it is unable to comply with these Clauses, for whatever

  2. In the event that the data importer is in breach of these Clauses or unable to comply with these Clauses, the data exporter shall suspend the transfer of personal data to the data importer until compliance is again ensured or the contract is terminated. This is without prejudice to Clause 14(f).

  3. The data exporter shall be entitled to terminate the contract, insofar as it concerns the processing of personal data under these Clauses, where:
    1. the data exporter has suspended the transfer of personal data to the data importer pursuant to paragraph (b) and compliance with these Clauses is not restored within a reasonable time and in any event within one month of suspension;
    2. the data importer is in substantial or persistent breach of these Clauses; or
    3. the data importer fails to comply with a binding decision of a competent court or supervisory authority regarding its obligations under these
    In these cases, it shall inform the competent supervisory authority and the controller of such non-compliance. Where the contract involves more than two Parties, the data exporter may exercise this right to termination only with respect to the relevant Party, unless the Parties have agreed otherwise.

  4. Personal data that has been transferred prior to the termination of the contract pursuant to paragraph (c) shall at the choice of the data exporter immediately be returned to the data exporter or deleted in its entirety. The same shall apply to any copies of the data. The data importer shall certify the deletion of the data to the data exporter. Until the data is deleted or returned, the data importer shall continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses. In case of local laws applicable to the data importer that prohibit the return or deletion of the transferred personal data, the data importer warrants that it will continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses and will only process the data to the extent and for as long as required under that local law.

  5. Either Party may revoke its agreement to be bound by these Clauses where (i) the European Commission adopts a decision pursuant to Article 45(3) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 that covers the transfer of personal data to which these Clauses apply; or (ii) Regulation (EU) 2016/679 becomes part of the legal framework of the country to which the personal data is transferred. This is without prejudice to other obligations applying to the processing in question under Regulation (EU) 2016/679.

 

Clause 17

Governing law

These Clauses shall be governed by the law of the EU Member State in which the data exporter is established.

    5. “Relevant Personal Data” means any personal data (as defined in these Controller-to-Processor Standard Contractual Clauses) received by the data importer, or any of its sub-processors, under these Clauses.

 

Supplementary Protections

 1. No back doors

The data importer hereby confirms that:

    1. it has not created any Back Doors in any infrastructure, technical environment, review platforms or other system used to host and/or process Personal Data of the data exporter;
    2. it has not intentionally created or changed its business processes in a manner that facilitates access to its infrastructure, technical environment, review platforms or others systems or to any Relevant Personal Data; and
    3. to the best of the data importer’s knowledge, applicable laws and government policies applicable to the data importer:
      1. do not require the data importer to create or maintain any Back Doors; and
      2. do not require the importer to be in possession of, or to disclose or provide, any encryption keys in relation to any Relevant Personal Data.

 

2. Enhanced audit rights

In addition to, and without prejudice to, the audit rights afforded to the data exporter under the auditing provisions of the Data Processing Agreement, and Clause 8.9(c) these Controller-to-Processor Contractual Clauses, to the extent permitted by applicable law, the data exporter, or its appointed representatives, shall be permitted, on no less than 48 hours’ written notice, to conduct an audit of the data importer’s relevant systems (and the systems of any sub-processors where such sub-processors within the data importer’s Group), whether in person or, to the extent practicable, by remote means, for the sole purpose of determining whether any Relevant Personal Data have been disclosed in response to any Disclosure Order. This additional right to audit shall be at the sole cost and expense of the data exporter who shall determine whether and if such audit shall take place. The data importer shall, where requested by the data exporter, take reasonable steps to assist the data exporter in conducting such audits including the provision of technical personnel to assist the data exporter in conducting the audit, supervised and controlled access to data importer’s infrastructure, technical environment, review platforms or other systems (provided such access does not impact any other client of the data importer or require the disclosure of confidential information relating to such clients) and copies of relevant documents that may assist the data exporter in conducting and assessing the findings of such audit.

 

3. Notification and Transparency

To the extent permitted by applicable law, the data importer shall regularly (and at least once every 24 hours) publish a message via a secure URL, accessible at www.kldiscovery.com/transparency-report (“Transparency Page”) informing the data exporter that, as at the time of the published message, it has not received a Disclosure Order. The data importer shall, for the term of processing of Relevant Personal Data under these Controller-to-Processor Contractual Clauses, continue to publish such information on the Transparency Page.

 

4. Obligation to Challenge

In the event that the data importer receives a Disclosure Order, the data importer shall promptly review the validity and enforceability of such Disclosure Order under applicable law and if, after a careful assessment, the data importer concludes that there are plausible grounds for challenging the Disclosure Order, and that such a challenge has a reasonable likelihood of succeeding, the data importer shall use reasonable efforts to bring such a challenge (including, where appropriate, through interim proceedings). To the extent that, notwithstanding any challenge, the data importer is obliged to disclose any Relevant Personal Data to the Relevant Authority, the data importer shall take all reasonable measures to ensure that it discloses the minimum amount of Relevant Personal Data required by applicable law.

 

5. Obligation to Notify

In the event that the data importer receives a Disclosure Order, the data importer shall:

    1. to the extent that the Disclosure Order contradicts the requirements of these Controller-to-Processor Contractual Clauses, inform the Relevant Authority that the Disclosure Order is incompatible with its obligations under these Controller-to-Processor Contractual Clauses, and that the Disclosure Order therefore exposes the data importer to conflicting legal obligations;
    2. to the extent permitted by applicable law, notify the data exporter of the Disclosure Order; and
    3. where the data importer is legally able to inform the data exporter of the Disclosure Order, provide all reasonable assistance to the data exporter to defend, challenge and/or limit the scope of the Disclosure Order and shall take all reasonable instructions from the data exporter regarding the Disclosure Order including choice of counsel by the data exporter. Where the data importer is permitted to notify, and therefore take instructions from the data exporter regarding the Disclosure Order, the data exporter shall be responsible for any reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the data importer in carrying out the data exporter’s instructions.

 

 6. Policies and procedures

The data importer shall implement and maintain adequate internal policies with clear allocation of responsibilities for data transfers, reporting channels and standard operating procedures for handling Disclosure Orders.

 

7. Disclosure of Records

The data importer shall create and maintain a written record of:

    1. each Disclosure Order; and
    2. the response to each Disclosure Order, together with details of the analysis of the Disclosure Order, the reasons for any response to the Disclosure Order,

and shall make such records available to the data exporter on request, to the extent permitted by applicable law, subject to appropriate redactions.  

 

8. Standards

The data importer shall adopt the security standards set out in Annex II, including but not limited to the ISO 27001 standard, and shall implement all appropriate security measures with due regard to the state of the art, in accordance with the levels of risk associated with the categories of Relevant Personal Data processed and the likelihood of Disclosure Orders in relation to such Relevant Personal Data.

 

9. Policy Review

The data importer shall implement a regular review of the measures it has taken to protect Relevant Personal Data, including its applicable policies and procedures, to assess the suitability of those measures, and identify and implement additional or alternative measures when reasonably necessary.

 

10. Onward Transfers

Where the data exporter provides instructions to data importer for the onward transfer of Relevant Personal Data to a sub-processor, the data importer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain, from that sub-processor, an agreement that provides an equivalent level of protection for Relevant Personal Data, as is set out in this Annex IV, prior to the onward transfer of Relevant Personal Data to that sub-processor. Where the data importer is unable to obtain equivalent measures as those set out in this Annex IV, the data importer shall not transfer any Relevant Personal Data to the sub-processor without the prior written authorization of the data exporter. It is acknowledged at all times that, where the data importer is unable to obtain equivalent measures as those set out in this Annex IV, any authorization by the data exporter shall be solely at the data exporter’s legal risk.

 

11. Compensation or other legal remedies

It is acknowledged and accepted by the data exporter and data importer that the decision to transfer any Relevant Personal Data shall be solely taken by the data exporter, or the data exporter’s end client, as the case may be, and nothing in this Annex IV or more generally following a data exporter decision to transfer Relevant Personal Data shall impose, or create, any liability on the data importer to any Data Subject or the data exporter arising from such a decision.

Juni 1992 ("DSG") und, nach Inkrafttreten, gemäß Art. 16 Absatz 2 Buchstabe d des künftigen revidierten Bundesgesetzes über den Datenschutz vom 25. September 2020 ("revDSG") gelten zusätzlich die folgenden Bestimmungen:

 

1. Die Vertragsparteien vereinbaren, den GDPR-Standard für alle Datenübermittlungen zu übernehmen.

 

2. Verweise auf die GDPR sind als Verweise auf das DSG (bzw. nach dessen Inkrafttreten auf das revFADP") zu verstehen.

 

3. Bis zum Inkrafttreten der revDSG sind auch die Daten von juristischen Personen durch diese DSGVO und das SCC geschützt.

 

4. Aufsichtsbehörde:

(a) wenn die Datenübermittlung ausschließlich dem DSG oder dem revDSG unterliegt: die zuständige Aufsichtsbehörde ist der Eidgenössischer Datenschutz- und Öffentlichkeitsbeauftragter ("EDÖB"); oder

(b) wenn die Datenübermittlung sowohl der DSGVO als auch dem DSG unterliegt: die zuständige Aufsichtsbehörde ist der EDÖB für Datenübermittlungen, die unter das DSG oder die revDSG fallen, und die zuständige EU-Aufsichtsbehörde für Datenübermittlungen, die unter die DSGVO fallen;

 

5. Anwendbares Recht für vertragliche Ansprüche nach Ziff. 17 SCC:

(a) wenn die Datenübermittlung ausschließlich dem DSG unterliegt: Schweizer Recht; oder

(b) wenn die Datenübermittlung sowohl der DSGVO als auch dem DSG unterliegt: deutsches Recht; oder (c) wenn die Datenübermittlung sowohl der DSGVO als auch dem DSG unterliegt: deutsches Recht.

Im Zusammenhang mit der gerichtlichen Zuständigkeit für Ansprüche, die sich aus diesem SCC ergeben, ist der Begriff "Mitgliedstaat" nicht so auszulegen, dass betroffene Personen in der Schweiz von der Möglichkeit ausgeschlossen werden, ihre Rechte an ihrem gewöhnlichen Aufenthaltsort (Schweiz) einzuklagen.

APPLICATION OF THE STANDARD CONTRACTUAL CLAUSES TO COMPLY WITH SWISS LEGISLATION

 

In order for the Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCC”) to comply with Swiss legislation and thus be suitable for ensuring an adequate level of protection for transfers of personal data from Switzerland to a third country in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 2 letter (a) of the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection dated 19 June 1992 (“FADP”) and, once entered into force, in accordance with Art. 16 paragraph 2 letter d of the future revised Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection dated 25 September 2020 (“revFADP”), the following additional provisions shall apply:

 

1. The Parties agree to adopt the GDPR standard for all data transfers.

 

2. References to the GDPR are to be understood as references to the FADP (respectively, once it entered into force, to the “revFADP”).

 

3. Before the revFADP enters into force, data pertaining to legal entities are also protected by this DPA and the SCC.

 

4. Supervisory authority:

(a) where the data transfer is exclusively subject to the FADP or revFADP: the competent supervisory authority is the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (“FDPIC”); or

(b) where the data transfer is subject to both the GDPR and the FADP: the competent supervisory authority is the FDPIC for data transfers governed by the FADP or revFADP, and the competent EU supervisory authority for data transfer governed by the GDPR;

 

5. Applicable law for contractual claims under Clause 17 SCC:

(a) where the data transfer is exclusively subject to the FADP: Swiss law.; or

(b) where the data transfer is subject to both the GDPR and the FADP: Irish law.

 

6. Place of jurisdiction for actions between the parties pursuant to Clause 18 b SCC :

(a) where the data transfer is exclusively subject to the FADP: Zurich, Switzerland; or

(b) where the data transfer is subject to both the GDPR and the FADP: Dublin, Ireland

 

In the context of jurisdiction for claims arising out of this SCC, the term “Member State” shall not be interpreted in such a way as to exclude data subjects in Switzerland from the possibility of suing for their rights in their place of habitual residence (Switzerland).
