This DPA reflects the parties’ agreement with respect to the Processing of Personal Data (as defined below) in connection with the requirements of Data Protection Laws. This DPA will control with respect to the subject matter herein in the event of any conflict with the Agreement. This DPA includes the Standard Contractual Clauses, attached hereto as EXHIBIT 1.

In addition to the definitions in the Agreement and set forth in other sections of this DPA:

  • “Data Controller” means the entity that determines the purposes and means of Processing Personal Data, in this case, Customer.
  • “Data Processor” means the entity that Processes Personal Data on behalf of the Data Controller, in this case, Swivl.
  • “Data Protection Laws” means any applicable data protection laws and regulations applicable to the Processing of Personal Data under the Agreement, including the applicable laws and regulations of the European Union, The European Economic Area and their member states, and Switzerland.
  • “Data Subject” means the individual to whom Personal Data relates.
  • “Personal Data” means any information relating to an identifiable or identified individual that is provided by Customer to be processed by Swivl.
  • “Processing,” “Processes,” or “Process” means any operation or set of operations performed upon Personal Data, whether or not by automated meads, such as collection, recording, organization, storage, adaptation, or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure, dissemination, erasure, or destruction.
  • “Sub-processor” nears any third-party service providers that Process Customer Data for Swivl.

Processing of Personal Data.

Customer controls the categories of Data Subjects and Personal Data Processed under this Agreement. Swivl has no knowledge of, or control over, the Personal Data that Customer provides for Processing. Customer is solely responsible for the accuracy, quality, and legality of the Customer Data and the means by which it acquired the Customer Data. Customer is solely responsible to ensure that its submission of Personal Data to Swivl and instructions for the Processing of Personal Data will comply with Data Protection Laws. Swivl will inform Customer without delay if, in Swivl’ opinion, Customer’s instructions violate Data Protection Laws.


Swivl will Process Personal Data on behalf of and in accordance with Customer’s document instructions (i) in accordance with the Agreement (including all documents incorporated into the Agreement) and (ii) to comply with Customer’s other reasonable instructions (including those received via email) to the extent those instructions are consistent with the Agreement. Swivl will not otherwise disclose Personal Data to third parties unless required to do so by applicable law, in which case Swivl will inform Customer in advance unless it is prohibited from doing so. Swivl will not Process Personal Data for any other purpose unless Customer instructs it to do so.


Rights of Data Subjects.

Swivl will, to the extent legally permitted, promptly notify Customer if it receives a request from a Data Subject to access, correct, amend, or delete that person’s Personal Data or if the Data Subject objects to the Processing thereof (“Data Subject Request”). Swivl will not respond to a Data Subject Request without Customer’s prior written consent, except to confirm that the request relates to Customer. To the extent Customer does not have the ability to address a Data Subject Request, Swivl shall upon Customer’s request provide commercially reasonable assistance to facilitate such Data Subject Request to the extent Swivl is legally permitted to do so and provided that such Data Subject Request is exercised in accordance with Data Protection Laws. To the extent legally permitted, Customer shall be responsible for any costs arising from Swivl’ providing such assistance.


With effect from May 25, 2018, the following language shall replace the foregoing. Data Subject Requests. Swivl shall, to the extent legally permitted, promptly notify Customer if Swivl receives a request from a data Subject to exercise the Data Subject’s right of access, right of rectification, restriction of Processing, right of erasure (“right to be forgotten”) data portability, objection to Processing, or its right not to be Subject to an automated individual decision making (“Data Subject Request”). Taking into account the nature of the Processing, Swivl shall assist Customer by appropriate technical and organization measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfillment of Customer’s obligation to respond to a Data Subject Request under Data Protection Laws. In addition, to the extent Customer does not have the ability to address a Data Subject Request, Swivl shall upon Customer’s request provide commercially reasonable efforts to assist Customer in responding to such Data Subject Requests, to the extent Swivl is legally permitted to do so and the response to such Data Subject Request is required under Data Protection Laws. To the extent legally permitted, Customer shall be responsible for any costs arising from Swivl’ providing such assistance.


Swivl Personnel and Subprocessors.

Swivl shall ensure its personnel engaged in the Processing of Personal Data are informed of the confidential nature of the Personal Data, have received appropriate training on their responsibilities, and have executed written confidentiality agreements that will survive the termination of their relationship with Swivl. Swivl shall ensure that access to Personal Data is limited to those personnel who require access to perform services or Process Personal Data in accordance with the Agreement. Customer expressly authorizes Swivl to use Sub-processors to perform specific services on Swivl’ behalf to enable it to perform its obligations under the Agreement. Swivl has entered into written agreements with its Sub-processors that contain obligations substantially similar to Swivl’ obligations under this DPA. Swivl will notify Customer of changes to its Sub-processors upon written request.


Security.

Swivl shall maintain appropriate technical and organizational safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and security of Customer Data, including protection from unauthorized or unlawful Processing, accidental or unlawful destruction, unauthorized disclosure or aces, accidental loss or alteration, or damage. Swivl shall notify Customer without undue delay after becoming aware of the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized access, or unauthorized disclosure of Customer Data, including Personal Data, transmitted, stored, or otherwise Processed by Swivl or its Sub-processor of which Swivl becomes aware (“Customer Data Incident”). Swivl shall make reasonable efforts to identify the cause of such Customer Data Incidents and take steps it deems necessary and reasonable to remediate the cause of such incidents to the extent dong so is within Swivl’ control. These obligations do not apply to incidents that are caused by Customer, its affiliates, or users.


GDPR.

When the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) becomes effective on May 25, 2018, Swivl will Process Personal Data in accordance with the GDPR’s requirements that are directly applicable to the Services Swivl provides. With effect from May 25, 2018, upon Customer’s request, Swivl shall provide Customer with reasonable cooperation and assistance needed for Customer to fulfill its obligation under the GDPR to conduct a data protection impact assessment related to Customer’s use of the Services, to the extent Customer does not have access to certain relevant information and such information is available to Swivl. To the extent required by the GDPR, in connection with the tasks in this section, Swivl will provide reasonable assistance to Customer in cooperation, or prior to consultation, with any Supervisory Authority.

      Swivl may not rely on a breach by a Sub-processor of its obligations in order to avoid its own liabilities.
    3. If a Data Subject is not able to bring a claim against the Controller or Swivl referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2, arising out of a breach by the Sub-processor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 because both the Controller and Swivl have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, the Sub-processor agrees that the Data Subject may issue a claim against the data Sub-processor with regard to its own processing operations under the Clauses as if it were the Controller or Swivl, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the Controller or Swivl by contract or by operation of law, in which case the Data Subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The liability of the Sub-processor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
  7. Mediation and jurisdiction

    3. Swivl shall promptly inform the Controller about the existence of legislation applicable to it or any Sub-processor preventing the conduct of an audit of Swivl, or any Sub-processor, pursuant to paragraph 2. In such a case the Controller shall be entitled to take the measures foreseen in Clause 5(b).
  9. Governing Law

    The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the Customer is located.

  10. Variation of the contract

    The Parties undertake not to vary or modify the Clauses. This does not preclude the Parties from adding Clauses on business related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Clauses.

  11. Subprocessing

    1. Swivl shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the Controller under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the Controller. Where Swivl subcontracts its obligations under the Clauses, with the consent of the Controller, it shall do so only by way of a written agreement with the Sub-processor which imposes the same obligations on the Sub-processor as are imposed on Swivl under the Clauses. Where the Sub-processor fails to fulfill its data protection obligations under such written agreement Swivl shall remain fully liable to the Controller for the performance of the Sub-processor's obligations under such agreement.
    2. The prior written contract between Swivl and the Sub-processor shall also provide for a third-party beneficiary clause as laid down in Clause 3 for cases where the Data Subject is not able to bring the claim for compensation referred to in paragraph 1 of Clause 6 against the Controller or Swivl because they have factually disappeared or have ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent and no successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the Controller or Swivl by contract or by operation of law. Such third-party liability of the Sub-processor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
    3. The provisions relating to data protection aspects for subprocessing of the contract referred to in paragraph 1 shall be governed by the laws of the country in which the Customer is located.
    4. The Controller shall keep a list of subprocessing agreements concluded under the Clauses and notified by Swivl pursuant to Clause 5(j), which shall be updated at least once a year. The list shall be available to the Controller's data protection Supervisory Authority.
  12. Obligation after the termination of Personal Data Processing services

    1. The Parties agree that on the termination of the provision of data processing services, Swivl and the Sub-processor shall, at the choice of the Controller, return all the Personal Data transferred and the copies thereof to the Controller or shall destroy all the Personal Data and certify to the Controller that it has done so, unless legislation imposed upon Swivl prevents it from returning or destroying all or part of the Personal Data transferred. In that case, Swivl warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the Personal Data transferred and will not actively process the Personal Data transferred anymore.
    2. Swivl and the Sub-processor warrant that upon request of the Controller and/or of the Supervisory Authority, it will submit its data processing facilities for an audit of the measures referred to in paragraph 1.
