Please read the Data Processing Addendum (“DPA”) carefully as they form a contract between You (“Customer”) and Us (“Inperium”). As referenced in the Inperium Terms of Service available at https://inperium.com/terms-of-service (“Terms”), this DPA will apply where We and Our Group Companies are processors of personal data. The capitalized terms used in this DPA but not defined herein shall have the same meaning as defined in the Terms. In the event of a conflict between this DPA and the Terms, this DPA shall prevail.
1 ) Data Protection
1.1 Definitions: In this DPA, the following terms shall have the following meanings:
a) “controller”, “processor”, “data subject”, “personal data”, “processing” (and “process”) and “special categories of personal data” shall have the meanings given in Applicable Data Protection Law; and
b) “Applicable Data Protection Law” shall mean the EU General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation 2016/679) (GDPR) and any other applicable data protection laws and regulations.
1.2 Relationship of the parties: Customer (the controller) appoints Inperium as a processor to process the personal data forming part of the Service Data (the “Data”) for the purposes described in the Terms (or as otherwise agreed in writing by the parties) (the “Permitted Purpose”). Each party shall comply with the obligations that apply to it under Applicable Data Protection Law.
1.3 Prohibited data: Customer shall not disclose (and shall not permit any data subject to disclose) any special categories of personal data to Inperium for processing.
1.4 International transfers: Where there is international transfer of personal data as set to Processor’s Group Companies or to a country which is not a member state of the European Union, or in another signatory state of the European Economic Area Agreement (“EEA Countries”) or an international organization, the following applies unless explicitly agreed otherwise by the parties in writing:
a) The Standard Contractual Clauses set forth in Annex 2 of this DPA will apply to personal data originating from Customer (who, for the purposes of the Standard Contractual Clauses shall be deemed the “Data Exporter”) that is processed by Inperium (who, for the purposes of the Standard Contractual Clauses shall be deemed the “Data Importer”) or by Inperium’s subcontractor outside of the European Economic Area. If there is any conflict between the Standard Contractual Clauses and this DPA, the Standard Contractual Clauses shall prevail.
b) At Customer’s request, the Standard Contractual Clauses shall be replaced and the Parties shall execute new standard contractual clauses or for transfers to data processors in third countries adopted pursuant to Art. 46 (2) c) or d) GDPR.
c) If and as long as the country where personal data is transferred to a country which is subject to an adequacy decision according to Art. 25 (6) of Directive 95/46/EC or Article 45 (3) GDPR, no Standard Contractual Clauses are required. Once the adequacy decision is repealed or suspended, a) and b) shall automatically apply.
1.5 Confidentiality of processing: Inperium shall ensure that any person it authorizes to process the Data (an “Authorized Person”) shall protect the Data in accordance with Inperium’s confidentiality obligations under the Terms.
1.6 Security: The processor shall implement technical and organizational measures to protect the Data (i) from accidental or unlawful destruction, and (ii) loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to the Data (a “Security Incident”).
1.7 Subcontracting: Customer consents to Inperium engaging third party subprocessors to process the Data for the Permitted Purpose provided that: (i) Inperium maintains an up-to-date list of its subprocessors at https://inperium.com/privacy-policy/sub-processor, which it shall update with details of any change in subprocessors prior to any such change; (ii) Inperium imposes data protection terms on any subprocessor it appoints that require it to protect the Data to the standard required by Applicable Data Protection Law; and (iii) Inperium remains liable for any breach of this Clause that is caused by an act, error or omission of its subprocessor. Customer may object to Inperium’s appointment or replacement of a subprocessor prior to its appointment or replacement, provided such objection is based on reasonable grounds relating to data protection. In such event, Inperium will either not appoint or replace the subprocessor or, if this is not possible, Customer may suspend or terminate the Terms (without prejudice to any fees incurred by Customer prior to suspension or termination).
1.8 Cooperation and data subjects’ rights: Inperium shall provide reasonable and timely assistance to Customer (at Customer’s expense) to enable Customer to respond to: (i) any request from a data subject to exercise any of its rights under Applicable Data Protection Law (including its rights of access, correction, objection, erasure and data portability, as applicable); and (ii) any other correspondence, enquiry or complaint received from a data subject, regulator or other third party in connection with the processing of the Data.

1.9 Data Protection Impact Assessment: If Inperium believes or becomes aware that its processing of the Data is likely to result in a high risk to the data protection rights and freedoms of data subjects, it shall inform Customer and provide reasonable cooperation to Customer (at Customer’s expense) in connection with any data protection impact assessment that may be required under Applicable Data Protection Law.
1.10 Security incidents: If it becomes aware of a confirmed Security Incident, Inperium shall inform Customer without undue delay and shall provide reasonable information and cooperation to Customer so that Customer can fulfil any data breach reporting obligations it may have under (and in accordance with the timescales required by) Applicable Data Protection Law. Inperium shall further take reasonably necessary measures and actions to remedy or mitigate the effects of the Security Incident and shall keep Customer informed of all material developments in connection with the Security Incident.
1.11 Deletion of Data: Customer may export all Service Data prior to the termination of the Customer’s Account. In any event, following the termination of Customer’s Account by either party, subject to (ii) and (iii) below and the Service Agreement, Service Data will be retained for a period of 14 days from such termination within which Customer may contact Provider to export Service Data; (ii) where the Controller does not use custom mailbox and uses the e-mail feature, if available within the Service(s), e-mails forming part of Service Data are automatically archived for a period of 3 months; and (iii) logs are archived for a period of thirty (30) days in the log management systems, post which logs are retired to a restricted archived cold storage for a period of eleven (11) months (each a “Data Retention Period”).
