Processing of Personal Data
With regard to the processing of Personal Data, the Supplier only stores and handles the data the Customer reports in the transaction relation. Furthermore, the Supplier stores the Personal Data in accordance with the legislation to data protection. The Supplier is not controller of the Personal Data generated by the Customer’s use of the Service. The Customer is the controller and therefore retains ownership of all data submitted to the Services. Thus, the Customer also determines the purpose and means of the process of Personal Data. The Customer can appoint the Supplier as processor to process a certain amount of Personal Data on behalf of the Customer. In such case, the details of the Supplier’s process of data must be composed in a separate data processor agreement.
Data Protection (Data Processing Agreement)
This data processor agreement must be used, if the Supplier as part of its delivery of the services as mentioned in the Agreement shall process personal data on behalf of the Customer, cf. Article 6 of the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (“GDPR”). If the Supplier is to process sensitive personal data on behalf of the Customer pursuant to Article 9 of the GDPR, the parties enter into a separate data processor agreement.
Both parties shall meet the requirements of the GDPR and applicable data protection legislation. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the processing of personal data takes place in compliance with the GDPR, including ensuring that the processing of personal data, which the Supplier is instructed to perform, has a legal basis. The Supplier shall process personal data only on documented instructions from the Customer. The documented instructions consist partly of the Agreement, so the Supplier can carry out such processing of the Customer’s personal data as is necessary to be able to provide the agreed services (the purpose of the processing), and partly of the subsequent separate documented instructions, which the Customer may provide to Supplier. If the Supplier is of the opinion that the Agreement or a separate instruction does not cover the Supplier’s processing of the Customer’s personal data, or that an instruction from the Customer will be in conflict with the GDPR or other applicable data protection legislation, Supplier must immediately notify the Customer thereof in writing.
Both parties shall, on an ongoing basis, implement appropriate technical and organizational measures that comply with the requirements of Article 32 of the GDPR in order to ensure the protection of the data subjects’ rights. The Supplier must, at the request of the Customer, assist the Customer pursuant to Article 32 of the GDPR by, among other things, provide the Customer with sufficient information so the Customer can demonstrate compliance with the requirements of applicable data protection legislation, including that the above-mentioned technical and organizational security measures have been taken.
The Supplier ensures that the persons authorized to process personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality and that this can be demonstrated to the Customer.
The Supplier shall meet the requirements specified in Article 28(2) and (4) GDPR in order to engage another processor (a sub-processor). The Supplier has the Customer’s general authorisation for the engagement of sub-processors. The Supplier shall inform the Customer in writing of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of sub-processors at least 60 days in advance, thereby giving the Customer the opportunity to object to such changes prior to the engagement of the concerned sub-processor(s). If the Supplier does not receive objections from the Customer within 30 days of receiving notification thereof, the Supplier is entitled to implement the change. The Supplier ensures that the sub-processor meets the requirements of Article 28 of the GDPR, and engage to enter into a sub-processor agreement with the sub-processor in question, which is subject to at least the same obligations as the Supplier has undertaken in this Agreement. Sub-processor agreement(s) and any subsequent changes thereto are sent – at the Customer’s request – in copy to the Customer. The Supplier shall be responsible that the sub-processor complies with the obligations to which the Supplier is subject pursuant to the clauses and the GDPR. Without the Customer’s prior written consent, the Supplier may not transfer the Customer’s personal data to countries outside the EU / EEA. When entering into the Agreement, the Supplier uses the following sub suppliers, which has been approved by the Customer:
|Name||Server location||service||legal basis for transfer|
|Mailgun Technologies||USA||E-mail provider||Standard contractual clauses|
Taking into account the nature of the processing, Supplier shall assist the Customer by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, in the fulfilment of the Customer’s obligations to respond to requests for exercising the data subject’s rights laid down in Chapter III GDPR. The Supplier’s assistance will be invoiced according to time spent. The Supplier shall, furthermore, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to the Supplier, assist the Customer in ensuring compliance with the obligations under Article 32 – 36 of the GDPR. Supplier shall make available to the Customer all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations laid down in Article 28 and the clauses and allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted by the Customer or another auditor mandated by the Customer.
The Supplier shall comply with Article 33 of the GDPR and without undue delay notify the Customer after becoming aware that there has been a personal data breach. The notification to the Customer must take place no later than 24 hours after the Supplier has become aware of the breach. The notification shall contain at least the information referred to in Article 33 (3), litra a), b) and d) mentioned requirements for notification. These obligations apply regardless of whether the Supplier is responsible for the personal data breach. If Supplier or its sub-processors are not responsible for the breach, the Supplier’s assistance will be invoiced according to time spent.
If the Customer does not instruct Supplier otherwise, the Supplier is entitled and obliged to delete the Customer’s personal data no longer than 3 months after the Agreement has been finally terminated. However, the obligations regarding the processing of personal data remain in force as long as the Supplier processes the Customer’s personal data.
All matters relating to non-compliance, liability and compensation are regulated in the Agreement.
Both parties shall keep records of processing activities referred to in Article 30 of the GDPR. If there are changes in the categories of personal data or categories of data subjects that the Supplier processes for the Customer, the Customer must immediately notify the Supplier thereof:
|categories of personal data||categories of data subjects|
|General personal data, including e-mail and name||End Users|
All written notices between the Parties shall be delivered by e-mail.
Improvements or updates made to the Services
The Supplier may revise the Services from time to time to better reflect improvements or updates made to the Services. Supplier reserves the right to upgrade, modify, replace, or reconfigure the Service at any time upon at least 14 calendar days’ notice, for changes that significantly may affect the use of the Service. The Supplier reserves the right to change or disconnect parts of the Service from time to other based on an estimate. Any future release, update, or other addition to functionality of the Service shall be subject to these terms.
Accessibility and Uptime
Supplier endeavours to ensure that the Service is available 24/7, however, Customer accepts that Supplier does not warrant that the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free. The Service is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, without any warranties to the fullest extent permitted by law.
The Customer can access the Service through the browser. With the exception of Internet Explorer, the Service supports all new versions of standard browsers on the large platforms. Internet Explorer 11 on Windows, Chrome and Firefox on Linux, and browsers that use older versions of WebKit, Blink or Gecko are not explicitly supported. However, the Service should also (in most cases) display and function correctly in these browsers.
Change of Terms
The Supplier may revise these Terms from time to time to better reflect:
- changes by law, or
- new regulatory requirements
If an update affects the Customer’s legal rights as a user of the Services, the Supplier will notify the Customer prior to the update’s effective date by sending an email to the email address associated with the MapUs account or via an in-product notification. These will be effective no less than thirty (30) days from when the Supplier notifies the Customer.
Supplier does not generally make changes to the Terms and Conditions on request of the Customer, unless explicitly agreed between Supplier and Customer. In this case, the Supplier reserves the right to charge fees for additional consultancy and external legal assistance.
Should any term or condition hereof be declared illegal or otherwise unenforceable, it shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement without affecting the remaining sections.
The sections on confidentiality, liability, payment, reference, and dispute shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
