- Purpose limitation. SIS shall process Customer Personal Data only in connection with the arrangements envisaged under this DPA and in accordance with Customer’s documented lawful instructions, except where otherwise required by applicable law. Customer instructs SIS and its Sub-processors to process Customer Personal Data as reasonably necessary for the provision of the Products contemplated by the Agreement and to perform its obligations under the Agreement.
- Description of processing. A description of the nature and purposes of the Processing, the types of Personal Data, categories of Data Subjects, and the duration of the Processing are set out further in Annex A of this DPA.
- Sensitive Data.. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that suitable safeguards are in place prior to transmitting or processing, or prior to permitting Customer’s Uses to transmit or process, any Sensitive Data via the Products. The Customer shall take such additional measures (e.g. relating to security and consent) as are necessary to protect such Sensitive Data in accordance with its obligations under all Applicable Privacy Laws.
- Third Countries. To the extent such data is transferred under this DPA to a Third Country, the parties agree to abide by the SCCs, where applicable, for such transfers. In particular, transfers of Personal Data from the European Union, European Economic Area, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (“UK”) to Third Countries are subject to the Standard Contractual Clauses, Module Three. The information required for the purposes of the SCCs is provided in Annex C of this DPA.

If the terms of the Agreement conflict with the SCCs, the terms of the SCCs will prevail. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event any data transfer mechanisms are approved under Applicable Privacy Laws the parties may agree to leverage such data transfer mechanisms in lieu of the Standard Contractual Clauses.
- Customer compliance. Customer shall, in its use of the Products, at all times process Personal Data, and provide the Instructions for the processing of Personal Data, in compliance with Applicable Privacy Laws. Customer represents and warrants that Customer has obtained or will obtain, all necessary consents, licenses and approvals for the processing of Personal Data under this DPA and, where applicable, has a valid legal basis under Applicable Privacy Laws for the processing of Personal Data under this DPA.

Customer further represents and warrants that Customer (i) will comply with all Applicable Privacy Laws in its performance arising out of this DPA; and (ii) has reviewed SIS’s security practices and acknowledges that such practices are appropriately designed to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing hereunder.
- Notification obligations regarding the Customer's instructions. SIS shall promptly notify the Customer in writing without any obligation to provide legal advice, unless prohibited from doing so under Applicable Privacy Laws, if it becomes aware or believes that any data processing instruction from the Customer violates Applicable Privacy Laws.
Return or Deletion of Data
- Following completion of the Products, SIS shall return or delete the Personal Data as set forth under the Agreement or applicable service documentation, or provide Customer the ability to delete such Personal Data directly through the tools or functionality made available by the Service. The foregoing obligations shall not apply (a) where deletion is not permitted under applicable law (including Applicable Privacy Laws) or the order of a governmental or regulatory body; (b) where SIS retains such Personal Data for internal record keeping and compliance with any legal obligations; and (c) where SIS’s then-current data retention or similar back-up system stores Personal Data provided such data will remain protected in accordance with the measures described in the Agreement and this DPA.

- Customer hereby provides SIS with general written authorization to engage Sub-processors to process (including transfer) Personal Data in connection with the Products in accordance with this Section 4.
- A list of SIS’s current Sub-processors (the “Sub-processor List”) is available at https://signinapp.com/terms/sub-processors/ (such URL may be updated by SIS from time to time upon notice to Customer).

At least thirty (30) days before enabling any new Sub-processor to access or participate in the processing of Customer Personal Data, SIS will add such Sub-processor to the Sub-processor List and notify Customer of that update. Customer may object to such an engagement on reasonable data protection grounds by providing notice to SIS within ten (10) days of receipt of the aforementioned notice from SIS.
- If the Customer has raised a reasonable objection to the new Sub-processor, and the parties have failed to agree on a solution within a reasonable period of time, the Customer shall have the right to terminate the Agreement with a notice period mutually determined by SIS and the Customer, without prejudice to any other remedies available under law or contract. In this event Customer shall immediately pay all fees and costs then owing to SIS up until the date of termination.

Security of Personal Data
- SIS shall implement and maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures designed to (i) ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk presented by the processing of the Personal Data; and (ii) protect the Personal Data from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.

- In connection with the provision of the Products to Customer, SIS may (and may authorize its Sub-processors to) receive from, process within, or transfer Personal Data to, any Third Country provided that SIS and its Sub-processors take measures to adequately protect such data consistent with Applicable Privacy Laws. Such measures may include to the extent available and applicable under such laws.
- The parties’ agreement to enter into and comply with the Standard Contractual Clauses which are hereby incorporated into this DPA and as further set forth in Annex C. In particular, transfers of Personal Data from the European Union, European Economic Area, Switzerland or the UK by Customer to SIS or SIS to Customer in Third Countries are subject to the Standard Contractual Clauses, Module Two (“Controller to Processor”), and Module Three (“Processor to Processor”). The information required for the purposes of the SCCs is provided in Annex C to this DPA.

- The Parties acknowledge and agree that they have, taking into account, without limitation, the Personal Data and Third Countries in scope, the relevant security measures under this DPA and the relevant parties participating in the processing of such Personal Data, conducted an assessment of the appropriateness of the relevant transfer mechanism adopted hereunder and have determined that such transfer mechanism is appropriately designed to ensure Personal Data transferred in accordance with this DPA is afforded a level of protection in the destination country that is essentially equivalent to that guaranteed under the Applicable Privacy Laws.
Cooperation, Audit and Records Requests
- SIS shall, to the extent permitted by law, promptly notify Customer following the receipt and verification of a Data Subject Request or shall otherwise advise the Data Subject to submit their Data Subject Request to Customer directly. In either case, Customer will be responsible for responding to such a request.
- At the request of Customer and taking into account the nature of the processing applicable to any Data Subject Request, SIS shall apply appropriate technical and organizational measures to enable Customer to comply with Customer’s obligation to respond to such Data Subject Request and/or in demonstrating such compliance provided that (i) Customer is itself unable to respond or fulfill the request without SIS’s assistance and (ii) SIS is able to do so in accordance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Customer shall be responsible to the extent legally permitted for any costs and expenses arising from any such assistance by SIS.
- If SIS receives a subpoena, court order, warrant or other legal demand from a third party, law enforcement, foreign government, or any other public or judicial authorities seeking the disclosure of Personal Data, SIS shall, legally permitting, promptly notify Customer in writing of such request. SIS shall only comply with such third-party requests where SIS has determined it is legally required to do so, in which case SIS shall provide reasonable cooperation to Customer, at Customer’s expense, if Customer wishes to limit, challenge or protect against such disclosure, to the extent permitted by applicable laws. Customer shall assume all risk and liability in handling and responding to such third-party requests and shall indemnify SIS for all losses, costs, damages, claims, actions, suits, demands and liabilities suffered or incurred by or brought against SIS arising out of or relating to any third-party access requests.
- SIS shall, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to SIS provide Customer with reasonable cooperation and assistance for Customer to comply with its obligations under the Applicable Privacy Laws, including any obligations to conduct a data protection impact assessment, respond to any inquiry from or consult with any Supervisory Authority or demonstrate compliance with Applicable Privacy Law. The obligations hereunder shall only apply where required of SIS by Applicable Privacy Law and provided that Customer does not otherwise have access to the relevant information or functionality being requested. Customer shall be responsible to the extent legally permitted for any costs and expenses arising from any such assistance by SIS.
- Upon Customer’s request and no more than once per calendar year, SIS shall make available for Customer’s review copies of all applicable attestation reports or certifications demonstrating SIS’s compliance with Applicable Privacy Laws as they relate to SIS’s processing of the Customer Personal Data hereunder. Solely where and to the extent (i) required by Applicable Privacy Laws and (ii) such copies of the attestation reports or certifications are insufficient to demonstrate SIS’s compliance with Applicable Privacy Laws as it relates to SIS’s processing of the Personal Data hereunder, SIS shall make available to the Customer additional information reasonably necessary to demonstrate compliance with such obligations and allow for and contribute to audits, including mutually agreed and managed inspections, of those data processing facilities within SIS’s control conducted by the Customer or another auditor mutually agreed upon by SIS and the Customer.
- Any audit or inspection authorized by Section 7.5 will occur only after the Customer has provided SIS with at least 30 days’ prior written notice and during a mutually agreed upon date, time, and location by SIS and the Customer. Audits must not unreasonably interfere with SIS’s business or operations, and the scope of such audit will be subject to SIS’s reasonable pre-approval. Individuals responsible for conducting such an audit shall be subject to a contract of confidentiality with SIS. The work required by SIS to participate in any audit may result in additional fees (at a mutually agreed upon hourly rate) to be paid by the Customer, unless otherwise agreed in writing prior to the commencement of such audit. To ensure that SIS complies with Applicable Privacy Laws and its contractual obligations regarding data privacy and security, Customer agrees that SIS is not required to provide Customer with access to SIS’s systems or information in a manner that may compromise the security, privacy, or confidentiality of SIS’s other customers’ confidential or proprietary information.

Personal Data Breach
- After becoming aware of a positively identified Personal Data Breach, SIS shall, without undue delay (but no later than 72 hours), inform Customer of the Personal Data Breach and take such steps as SIS, in its sole discretion, deems necessary and reasonable to remediate such Personal Data Breach (to the extent that remediation is within SIS’s reasonable control).
- SIS shall, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information reasonably available to SIS: (a) provide Customer with reasonable cooperation and assistance necessary for Customer to comply with its obligations under Applicable Privacy Laws with respect to notifying relevant regulators and/or Data Subjects affected by such Personal Data Breach; and (b) provide Customer with information in SIS’s reasonable control concerning the details of the Personal Data Breach including, as applicable, the nature of the Personal Data Breach, the categories and approximate numbers of Data Subjects and Personal Data records concerned, and the likely consequences of the Personal Data Breach.
- The obligations described in this Section 8 shall not apply in the event that a Personal Data Breach results from the actions or omissions of Customer. In no event will SIS’s cooperation or obligation to report or respond to a Personal Data Breach under this Section be construed as an acknowledgement by SIS of any fault or liability with respect to the Personal Data Breach.
- Unless prohibited by an applicable statute or court order, Customer will notify SIS of any third-party legal process relating to any Personal Data Breach, including, but not limited to, any legal process initiated by any governmental entity.

- This DPA is without prejudice to the rights and obligations of the parties under the Agreement which will continue to have full force and effect. In the event of any conflict between the terms of this DPA and the terms of the Agreement, the terms of this DPA will prevail. In the event of any conflict between the terms of this DPA and the Standard Contractual Clauses then, only insofar as the Standard Contractual Clauses apply, the Standard Contractual Clauses will prevail.
