  • Clause 7 (the optional docking clause) is included.
  • Under Clause 9 (Use of sub-processors), the parties select Option 2 (General written authorization). The initial list of sub-processors is set forth as indicated in Section 11(b) of this DPA and AppHub shall update that list and provide notice to Customer at least twenty (20) days in advance of any intended additions or replacements of sub-processors.

  1. Additional Safeguards for the Transfer and Processing of Personal Information from the EEA, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. To the extent that AppHub Processes Personal Information of Data Subjects located in or subject to the applicable Data Privacy Laws of the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom, AppHub agrees to the following safeguards to protect such data to an equivalent level as applicable Data Privacy Laws:
  • AppHub and Customer shall encrypt all transfers of the Personal Information between them, and AppHub shall encrypt any onward transfers it makes of such personal data, to prevent the acquisition of such data by third parties.
  • AppHub will use all reasonably available legal mechanisms to challenge any demands for data access through national security process it receives as well as any non-disclosure provisions attached thereto.
  • At 12-month intervals or more often if required by applicable Data Privacy Law, AppHub shall create a transparency report that it will make available to Customer upon request, indicating the types of binding legal demands for the Personal Information it has received, including national security orders and directives, which shall encompass any process issued under FISA Section 702.
  • AppHub will promptly notify Customer if AppHub can no longer comply with the applicable Standard Contractual Clauses or the clauses in this Section. AppHub shall not be required to provide Customer with specific information about why it can no longer comply, if providing such information is prohibited by applicable law. Such notice shall entitle Customer to terminate the Agreement (or, at Customer’s option, affected statements of work, order forms, and like documents thereunder) and receive a prompt pro-rata refund of any prepaid amounts thereunder. This is without prejudice to Customer’s other rights and remedies with respect to a breach of the Agreement.
