  • 1.2.Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning given to them in the Agreement.

2. Processing of Customer Personal Data

  • 2.1.Customer is a Controller or Processor, as applicable, of Customer Personal Data and Smartcar is the Processor of that data. Smartcar will only Process Customer Personal Data as a Processor on behalf of and in accordance with Customer’s prior written instructions. Smartcar is hereby instructed to Process Customer Personal Data to the extent necessary to enable Smartcar to provide the Smartcar Services in accordance with the Agreement. If Customer is a Processor, Customer warrants that its instructions and actions with respect to Customer Personal Data, including its engagement of Smartcar pursuant to the Agreement and this DPA, have been authorized by the relevant Controller. Smartcar will accept instructions solely from the Customer, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties. A description of Processing is set forth in Schedule 1. If applicable laws preclude Smartcar from complying with Customer’s instructions, Smartcar will inform Customer of its inability to comply with the instructions, to the extent permitted by law.

4. Sub-Processing

  • 4.1.Customer agrees that Smartcar may engage sub-Processors to process Customer Personal Data on Customer's behalf. The sub-processors currently engaged by Smartcar and authorized by Customer are AWS, Sentry, Slack and Segment. For the avoidance of doubt, the above authorization constitutes Customer’s prior written consent to the sub-Processing by Smartcar for purposes of Clause 11 of the Standard Contractual Clauses. Smartcar will inform Customer of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of any sub-Processors and Customer will have an opportunity to object to such changes on reasonable grounds within seven (7) business days after being notified. If the parties are unable to resolve such objection, either party may terminate the Agreement by providing written notice to the other party.
  • 4.2.Smartcar will impose on the sub-Processors substantially the same obligations that apply to Smartcar under this DPA. Where any of its sub-Processors fails to fulfil its data protection obligations, Smartcar will be liable to Customer for the performance of its sub-Processors’ obligations.
  • 4.3.The parties agree that the copies of the Sub-processor agreements that must be provided by Smartcar to Customer pursuant to Clause 5 (j) of the Standard Contractual Clauses, if applicable, may have commercial information or clauses unrelated to the Standard Contractual Clauses, removed by Smartcar beforehand; and, that such copies will be provided by Smartcar, in a manner to be determined in its discretion, only upon Customer’s written request.

5. Data Subject Rights

  • 5.1.Smartcar will, at Customer’s request and subject to Customer paying all of Smartcar’s fees at prevailing rates, and all expenses, provide Customer with assistance necessary for the fulfilment of Customer’s obligation to respond to requests for the exercise of Data Subjects’ rights. Smartcar shall not respond to such requests without Customer’s prior written consent and written instructions. Customer shall be solely responsible for responding to such requests.

6. Personal Data Breaches

  • 6.1.Smartcar will notify Customer without undue delay after it becomes aware of any Personal Data Breach affecting any Customer Personal Data.

Customer is solely responsible for complying with Personal Data Breach notification requirements applicable to Customer and fulfilling any third-party notification obligations related to any Personal Data Breach.

7. Data Protection Impact Assessment; Prior Consultation

  • 7.1.Smartcar will, at Customer’s request and subject to Customer paying all of Smartcar’s fees at prevailing rates, and all expenses, provide Customer with reasonable assistance to facilitate conducting data protection impact assessments and consultation with data protection authorities, if Customer is required to engage in such activities under the GDPR, and solely to the extent that such assistance is necessary and relates to the Processing by the Smartcar of the Customer Personal Data, taking into account the nature of the Processing and the information available to the Smartcar.

8. Return or Deletion of Customer Personal Data

  • 8.1.On termination of the Agreement, Customer instructs Smartcar to delete all Customer Personal Data from Smartcar’s systems in accordance with applicable law. Smartcar will, after a recovery period of up to 30 days following such termination, comply with this instruction as soon as reasonably practicable and within 90 days, unless further storage of the data is required by applicable law of the European Union, its Member States or the United Kingdom. The parties agree that certification of deletion of Customer Personal Data as described in Clause 12(1) of the Standard Contractual Clauses, if applicable, shall be provided only upon Customer’s request. Customer is solely responsible for exporting, before termination of the Agreement, any Customer Personal Data it wishes to retain.

9. Information

  • 9.1.Smartcar will, at Customer’s request and subject to Customer paying all of Smartcar’s fees at prevailing rates, and all expenses, provide Customer with all information necessary to enable Customer to demonstrate compliance with its obligations under the GDPR, and allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted by Customer or an auditor mandated by Customer, to the extent that such information is within Smartcar’s control and Smartcar is not precluded from disclosing it by applicable law, a duty of confidentiality, or any other obligation owed to a third party, and provided that such audits shall be carried out with reasonable notice during regular business hours not more often than once per year. The parties agree that the audits described in Clause 5(f) and Clause 12(2) of the Standard Contractual Clauses, if applicable, shall be performed in accordance with this Section 9. Smartcar will immediately inform Customer if, in its opinion, an instruction from Customer infringes the Data Protection Laws.

10. Liability

  • 10.1.Each party’s liability towards the other party under or in connection with this DPA will be limited in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement.
  • 10.2.Customer acknowledges that Smartcar is reliant on Customer for direction as to the extent to which Smartcar is entitled to Process Customer Personal Data on behalf of Customer in performance of the Smartcar Services. Consequently Smartcar will not be liable under the Agreement for any claim brought by a Data Subject arising from any action or omission by the Smartcar, to the extent that such action or omission resulted from Customer’s instructions or from Customer’s failure to comply with its obligations under the Data Protection Laws.

11. General Provisions

  • 2. If a data subject is not able to bring a claim for compensation in accordance with paragraph 1 against the data exporter, arising out of a breach by the data importer or his subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11, because the data exporter has factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent, the data importer agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data importer as if it were the data exporter, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by contract of by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity.

    The data importer may not rely on a breach by a subprocessor of its obligations in order to avoid its own liabilities.

The liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.

Clause 7

  • 3. The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter about the existence of legislation applicable to it or any subprocessor preventing the conduct of an audit of the data importer, or any subprocessor, pursuant to paragraph 2. In such a case the data exporter shall be entitled to take the measures foreseen in Clause 5 (b).

Clause 9

Governing Law

The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.

Clause 10

Variation of the contract

The parties undertake not to vary or modify the Clauses. This does not preclude the parties from adding clauses on business related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Clause.

Clause 11

Subprocessing

  • 1. The data importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the data exporter under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the data exporter. Where the data importer subcontracts its obligations under the Clauses, with the consent of the data exporter, it shall do so only by way of a written agreement with the subprocessor which imposes the same obligations on the subprocessor as are imposed on the data importer under the Clauses. Where the subprocessor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations under such written agreement the data importer shall remain fully liable to the data exporter for the performance of the subprocessor's obligations under such agreement.
  • 2. The prior written contract between the data importer and the subprocessor shall also provide for a third-party beneficiary clause as laid down in Clause 3 for cases where the data subject is not able to bring the claim for compensation referred to in paragraph 1 of Clause 6 against the data exporter or the data importer because they have factually disappeared or have ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent and no successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law. Such third-party liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
  • 3. The provisions relating to data protection aspects for subprocessing of the contract referred to in paragraph 1 shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
  • 4. The data exporter shall keep a list of subprocessing agreements concluded under the Clauses and notified by the data importer pursuant to Clause 5 (j), which shall be updated at least once a year. The list shall be available to the data exporter's data protection supervisory authority.

Clause 12

Obligation after the termination of personal data processing services

  • 1. The parties agree that on the termination of the provision of data processing services, the data importer and the subprocessor shall, at the choice of the data exporter, return all the personal data transferred and the copies thereof to the data exporter or shall destroy all the personal data and certify to the data exporter that it has done so, unless legislation imposed upon the data importer prevents it from returning or destroying all or part of the personal data transferred. In that case, the data importer warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data transferred and will not actively process the personal data transferred anymore.
  • 2. The data importer and the subprocessor warrant that upon request of the data exporter and/or of the supervisory authority, it will submit its data processing facilities for an audit of the measures referred to in paragraph 1.
