1.2 The Data Processor will only process the Data in accordance with the documented instructions from the Data Controller set out in this Data Processing Agreement and will not process the Data for other purposes or its own purposes, unless Union or Member State law to which the Data Processor is subject, imposes a processing obligation on the Data Processor.

1.3 The Data Processor can under no circumstances be held liable for any damages or other consequences as result of the processing of special categories of personal data (Article 9 GDPR) on behalf of the Data Controller.
1.4 This Data Processing Agreement forms, as well as the General Terms and Conditions Momice, an integral part of the Agreement between Data Controller and Data Processor.
1.5 Where relevant, this Data Processing Agreement will supersede all previous data processing agreements and/or similar agreements between the Parties concerning the Agreement.
2. Allocation of responsibility
2.1 The Data Controller represents and warrants that it has a valid legal basis to process the Data and to engage the Data Processor in relation to such processing of Data. Furthermore, the Data Controller represents and warrants that the processing by the Data Processor is not unlawful and does not infringe any rights of a third party. In this context, the Data Controller indemnifies the Data Processor of all claims and actions of third parties related to the unlawful processing of Data.
2.2 The permitted processing operations shall be semi-automated and performed under the control of the Data Processor. The Data Processor is solely responsible for the processing of Data under the Data Processing Agreement, in accordance with the instructions of the Data Controller and under the (final) responsibility of the Data Controller.

5. Security measures
5.1 The Data Processor will implement – taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons – appropriate technical and organisational measures (“Security Measures”) to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk. In assessing the appropriate level of security account shall be taken in particular of the risks that are presented by processing, in particular from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to Data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed. The Security Measures are described in Annex 2 to this Data Processing Agreement.
5.2 The Parties acknowledge that security requirements change, which means that effective security makes it necessary to conduct frequent evaluations and to regularly improve outdated Security Measures. As such, the Data Processor will periodically evaluate the Security Measures described in Annex 2 and improve them where necessary in order to continue to fulfil the obligations set out in this Article 4. To that end the Security Measures as made available on Data Processor’s website will remain leading.
6.1 The Data Processor will enable the Data Controller to audit the Data Processor's compliance (“Audit”) with this Data Processing Agreement, and the Security Measures referred to in Article 5 and Annex 2 in particular, once per calendar year, provided that the Data Controller shall inform the Data Processor at least two weeks before the Audit.
6.2 The Audit may only take place after:
- the Data Controller has requested (from the Data Processor) the similar audit reports from independent third parties that are already in Data Processor’s possession;
- the Data Controller has reviewed the aforementioned audit reports and can provide legitimate reasons to initiate an audit as mentioned in Article 6.1.
6.3 The Data Processor shall cooperate with the Audit, and provide all information reasonably relevant for the Audit, including supporting data such as system logs and employees, as promptly as possible.
6.4 The Data Controller will bear the costs of the Audit, including the costs that the Data Processor has to make to cooperate with the Audit.

7.2 The Data Processor has a documented procedure in place for handling Personal Data Breaches, which enables the Data Processor to adequately inform the Data Controller about such breaches and to effectively collaborate with the Data Controller to properly address such breaches.

7.4 The Data Processor is prohibited from providing information about personal data breaches to Data Subjects or other third parties, unless the Data Processor has a legal obligation to do so or if the Parties have agreed otherwise in writing. The Data Controller remains the responsible Party for any statutory obligations in respect thereof.
8. Rights of data subjects
8.1 On request of the Data Controller the Data Processor will provide assistance – bearing in mind the nature of the processing and the available information – to the extent necessary to enable the Data Controller to satisfy requests from Data Subjects within the meaning of Chapter 3 of the GDPR. The Data Processor may charge reasonable costs for the aforementioned assistance.
8.2 If such a request is submitted directly to the Data Processor, the Data Processor may inform the Data Subject hereof and will inform the Data Controller accordingly. Under no circumstances will the Data Processor satisfy such requests without the Data Controller's intervention.
9. Cooperating with data protection impact assessments and prior consultation
9.1 Taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to the Data Processor, the Data Processor will on request assist the Data Controller to the extent necessary and reasonable, in fulfilling its obligations arising from Article 35 (data protection impact assessment) and Article 36 (prior consultation) of the GDPR. The Data Processor may charge reasonable costs for the aforementioned assistance.

10.2 Should the Data Controller object to such change, then the Parties will jointly endeavour to find a reasonable solution. If Parties cannot come to a solution, then the Data Processor is allowed to make the planned change in the used Sub-Processors and the Data Controller is allowed to terminate the Agreement (including the Data Processing Agreement) on the date that the Data Processor will actually make the change in the used Sub-Processors.
10.3 The Data Processor has entered into a sub-data processing agreement that imposes on the Sub-processor the same responsibilities and obligations as are imposed on the Data Processor in this Data Processing Agreement.
