When any New Third Party Subprocessor is engaged during the Term, Vendor will, at least 30 days before the New Third Party Subprocessor starts processing any Customer Data, notify Customer of the engagement (including the name and headquartered location of the relevant Subprocessor and the activities it will perform), such as by updating the URL provided by the Vendor on the Listing.
10.3.2 Opportunity to Object. Customer may object in writing to Vendor’s engagement of a New Third Party Subprocessor, but only if such objection is based on reasonable grounds relating to data protection.

Appendix 1: Subject Matter and Details of the Data Processing
1. Subject Matter: Vendor’s provision of the Service and Support to Customer.
2. Duration of the Processing: The Term plus the period from the expiry of the Term until deletion of all Customer Data by Vendor in accordance with the Terms.
3. Nature and Purpose of the Processing: Vendor will process Customer Personal Data for the purposes of providing the Service and Support to Customer in accordance with the Agreement, including this Addendum.
4. Categories of Data: Data relating to individuals provided to Vendor via the Service, by (or at the direction of) Customer.
5. Data Subjects: Data subjects include the individuals about whom data is provided to Vendor via the Service by (or at the direction of) Customer.
Appendix 2: Security Measures
As from the Terms Effective Date, Vendor will implement and maintain the Security Measures described in this Appendix 2.
1. Data Access and Storage
1.1 Access Controls. Customer’s administrators and end Users must authenticate themselves via a central authentication system or via a single sign on system to use the Service.
1.2 Encryption. Vendor makes encryption available.
1.3 Storage and Sharing. Vendor stores data in a multi-tenant environment. Subject to any Customer instructions to the contrary, Vendor replicates Customer Data between multiple geographically dispersed data centers. Vendor also logically isolates Customer Data, and logically separates each end user’s data from the data of other end users, and data for an authenticated end user will not be displayed to another end user (unless the former end user or an administrator allows the data to be shared). Customer will be given control over specific data sharing policies. Those policies, in accordance with the functionality of the Service, will enable Customer to determine the product sharing settings applicable to end users for specific purposes.
1.4.1 Data Transmission. Vendor transfers data via Internet standard protocols.
1.4.2 External Attack Surface. Vendor employs multiple layers of network devices and intrusion detection to protect its external attack surface. Vendor considers potential attack vectors and incorporates appropriate purpose built technologies into external facing systems.
Intrusion Detection. Intrusion detection is intended to provide insight into ongoing attack activities and provide adequate information to respond to incidents. Vendor’s intrusion detection involves:
1. tightly controlling the size and make-up of Vendor’s attack surface through preventative measures;
2. employing intelligent detection controls at data entry points; and
3. employing technologies that automatically remedy certain dangerous situations.
1.5 Incident Response. Vendor monitors a variety of communication channels for security incidents, and Vendor’s security personnel will react promptly to known incidents
2.1 Infrastructure Security Personnel. Vendor has, and maintains, a security policy for its personnel, and requires security training as part of the training package for its personnel. Vendor’s infrastructure security personnel are responsible for the ongoing monitoring of Vendor’s security infrastructure, the review of the Service, and responding to security incidents.
2.2 Vendor Personnel. Vendor personnel are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the company’s guidelines regarding confidentiality, business ethics, appropriate usage, and professional standards. Vendor conducts reasonably appropriate backgrounds checks to the extent legally permissible and in accordance with applicable local labor law and statutory regulations. Personnel are required to execute a confidentiality agreement and must acknowledge receipt of, and compliance with, Vendor’s confidentiality and privacy policies. Personnel are provided with security training. Personnel handling Customer Data are required to complete additional requirements appropriate to their role (e.g., certifications). Vendor’s personnel will not process Customer Data without authorization.
2.3 Internal Data Access Processes and Policies – Access Policy. Vendor’s internal data access processes and policies are designed to prevent unauthorized persons and/or systems from gaining access to systems used to process personal data. Vendor designs its systems to: (i) only allow authorized persons to access data they are authorized to access; and (ii) ensure that personal data cannot be read, copied, altered or removed without authorization during processing. The systems are designed to detect any inappropriate access. Vendor employs a centralized access management system to control personnel access to production servers, and only provides access to a limited number of authorized personnel. Vendor’s authentication and authorization systems are designed to provide Vendor with secure and flexible access mechanisms. These mechanisms are designed to grant only approved access rights to site hosts, logs, data and configuration information. Vendor requires the use of unique user IDs, strong passwords, two factor authentication and carefully monitored access lists to minimize the potential for unauthorized account use. The granting or modification of access rights is based on: the authorized personnel’s job responsibilities; job duty requirements necessary to perform authorized tasks; and a need to know basis. The granting or modification of access rights must also be in accordance with Vendor’s internal data access policies and training. Approvals are managed by workflow tools that maintain audit records of all changes. Access to systems is logged to create an audit trail for accountability. Where passwords are employed for authentication (e.g., login to workstations), password policies that follow at least industry standard practices are implemented. These standards include restrictions on password reuse and sufficient password strength.
3. Subprocessor Security
Before onboarding Subprocessors, Vendor conducts appropriate due diligence of the security and privacy practices of Subprocessors to ensure Subprocessors provide a level of security and privacy appropriate to their access to data and the scope of the services they are engaged to provide. Once Vendor has assessed the risks presented by the Subprocessor, then subject to the requirements described in Section 10.2 (Requirements for Subprocessor Engagement) of this Data Processing Addendum, the Subprocessor is required to enter into appropriate security, confidentiality and privacy contract terms.
4. Business Continuity
Vendor has designed and regularly plans and tests its business continuity planning/disaster recovery programs.
