In this case and only in this case, in respect of the processing of the Visitor’s Personal Data by Glaze under these terms and conditions, the Parties acknowledge that the Client is the Data Controller and Glaze is the Data Processor and agree to comply with all corresponding obligations as per applicable data protection laws. The Client (hereinafter “Data Controller”) authorizes Glaze (hereinafter “Data Processor”) to process such Personal Data on its behalf as it is necessary for the purposes of these terms and conditions as defined in Annex X “Description of the Visitors’ Personal Data processing of the order form.
In accordance with article 28 of Regulation 5419/16 of the European Parliament and of the Council “on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of Personal Data and on the free movement of such data” (hereafter the “General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”), the processing of Visitors’ Personal Data shall be governed by the terms and conditions of the present Section. All capitalized words in this Section shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the GDPR and in the Agreement.
The Annex X of the order form sets out the details of the processing and notably the subject-matter and duration of the processing, the nature and purpose of the processing, the type of personal data and categories of data subjects and the obligations and rights of the controller. For the sake of clarity, Annex X of the agreement shall be deemed as a template and shall be filled out by the Parties for each processing of Visitors’ Personal Data.
For every processing carried out on behalf of the Data Controller, Glaze will:
process the Personal Data only on documented instructions from the Data Controller, including with regard to transfers of Personal Data to a third country or an international organisation, unless required to do so by Union or Member State law to which the Data Processor is subject; in such a case, the Data Processor shall inform the Data Controller of that legal requirement before processing, unless that law prohibits such information on important grounds of public interest;
ensure that persons authorized to process the Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality;
have taken into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, take all appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, as required pursuant to article 32 of GDPR “Security of Processing” and as further detailed in Annex Y “Technical and organizational measures” of the order form. The Client and Glaze expressly declare that the technical and organizational measures detailed in Annex Y are appropriate and sufficient in regards to the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing as further described in Annex X;
not engage another Data Processor (the “Sub-processor”) without prior specific or general written authorisation of the Data Controller. The same Personal Data protection obligations as set out in the present Section shall be imposed on that other Sub-processor by way of a contract or other legal act under Union or Member State law, in particular providing sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in such a manner that the processing will meet the requirements of the GDPR. Where the Sub-processor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations, Glaze shall remain liable to the controller for the performance of that other processor's obligations, in respect to the conditions referred to in paragraphs 2 and 4 of article 28 of GDPR;
take into account the nature of the processing and the costs of implementation, assist the Client by appropriate technical and organizational measures as described in Annex Y of this agreement, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfilment of the Client's obligation to respond to requests for exercising the Data Subject's rights laid down in Chapter III of GDPR, being provided that the Client shall implement all necessary measures in order to (i) satisfy the Data Subjects’ requests and (ii) allow Glaze to assist the Client;
assist the Client in ensuring compliance with the its own obligations pursuant to Articles 32 to 36 of GDPR within the limits and conditions of the agreement taking into account Glaze’s competences, the cost of implementation of the obligations under paragraph 1.3.1 (f) of this Section, the nature of processing and the information available to Glaze;
at the choice of the Client, delete or return all the Personal Data to the Client after the end of the provision of the Services relating to processing, and delete existing copies unless Union or Member State law requires storage of the Personal Data. If the deletion or return of all the Personal Data to the Client takes place in the course of execution of the agreement, then the costs shall be borne by the Client. If, however, the deletion or return of all the Personal Data takes places at the expiration of the agreement, there will be no extra cost for the Client, unless in case of anticipated termination of the agreement at the initiative of the Client;
make available to the Client all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations laid down in this Section and allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted by the Client or another auditor mandated by the Client, who shall not be a competitor of Glaze;
immediately inform the Client if, in Glaze’s opinion, an instruction of the Client, infringes the GDPR or other Union or Member State data protection provisions. This opinion shall not be construed as a legal advice by Glaze. In case an instruction of the Client is not compliant with the obligations of security of the processing incumbent upon Glaze in compliance with article 32 of GDPR, Glaze shall be entitled to adopt any measures required under article 32 of GDPR at the cost and risk of the Client.
notify the Client without undue delay after becoming aware of a personal data breach regarding the Personal Data he is processing under this agreement and in any case in a delay allowing the Client to comply with its obligation of notification of the personal data breach to the supervisory authority pursuant to the provisions of article 33 GDPR.
The Client warrants to Glaze that it is entitled to transfer the Visitors’ Personal Data to Glaze and/or the Sub-processor(s) in full compliance with applicable data protection laws, including as needed, compliance to any prior required formalities and Data Subject rights, such as information and/or consent when such is required under applicable data protection laws.
The Client agrees that Glaze may sub-process the Personal Data to Sub-processors located inside or outside of the European Economic Area (the “EEA”) as necessary for the performance of the Services under this agreement for all sub-processing activities. It is expressly agreed that the present clause shall be deemed as a general written authorization in compliance with the provisions of article 28.2 of the GDPR (“General Consent”). When Visitors’ Personal Data is sub-processed to Sub-processors located outside of the EEA, the Client hereby agrees to the signature by Glaze on its behalf of the standard contractual clauses for the transfer of Personal Data to Sub-processors established in third countries under Commission Decision 2010/87/EU or equivalent standard data protection clauses under EU Law. Notwithstanding the General Consent given by the Client, Glaze shall inform the Client of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of any Sub-processor within a reasonable time prior to implementation of such change.
Glaze and any person acting under the authority of the Client or of Glaze, who has access to Visitors’ Personal Data under this agreement, shall not process those Personal Data except on instructions from the Client, unless required to do so by Union or Member State law. The Client remains solely responsible for the accuracy and adequacy of the aforementioned instructions as well as for approving the security measures applicable to the protection of Visitors’ Personal Data as defined in Annex Y.
Any changes to the instructions given or the security measures that are required by the Client, including in order to comply with applicable data protection laws, shall be agreed by the Parties. Any costs incurred by Glaze in complying with such changes shall be borne by the Client.
