1 Definitions and Interpretation
Any capitalised expressions that are not defined in this Data Addendum will have the meaning given to them in the Cloud Services Terms or the General Terms and Conditions or the meaning given to them (and equivalent expressions) in Data Protection Laws (as defined in clause 2 of this Data Addendum below).
2 General Obligations
2.1 You shall comply with all applicable data protection, security and privacy laws (and all related codes of practice and guidance issued by applicable regulators) in any jurisdiction including but not limited to the Data Protection Act 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”), the Network and Information Systems Regulations 2018, Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (“PECRs”), the Data Protection (Charges and Information) Regulations 2018 (SI 2018/480) and all associated legislation, as amended or replaced from time to time (collectively "Data Protection Laws"). You shall not, by any act or omission, cause us to breach any Data Protection Laws and shall ensure our receipt of your Data in accordance with these Cloud Services Terms is lawful and does not infringe any individuals’ rights under those laws.
2.3 You shall implement and maintain at all times in accordance with Data Protection Laws a technical feature on each Website that expressly requests consent from every End User of the Website in respect of our use of your Data (as your Processor or a Joint Controller, as applicable) and a technical feature that allows the withdrawal of that consent (which must allow withdrawal as easily as consent was obtained). The consent that you shall obtain shall meet the standard of consent required under Data Protection Laws and you shall not access, read, collect, transfer or otherwise Process any of your Data in connection with the Cloud Services in respect of an End User (and shall not allow any of your Data to be received by us in respect of that user) until that user has provided such consent and provided always that consent has not subsequently been withdrawn. You shall not combine the request for such consent with consent in respect of any other Processing of or access to any data. You shall, promptly after receiving written notice from us, request and manage consent for any Processing of your Data that we perform as an independent Controller.
2.4 You shall maintain at all times a full record of any consent you request or obtain, together with a record of all withdrawals and requested withdrawals of consent in accordance with Data Protection Laws and shall, on receipt of written notice from us, promptly share with us part or all of such records, as required by us.
2.5 If a user withdraws their consent, you will notify us and provide to us in respect of such withdrawal any information we reasonably require to comply with our obligations under Data Protection Laws.
2.6 You shall co-operate and provide us with reasonable assistance in relation to any enquiry, request or notice we receive from an End User or Supervisory Authority, including the Information Commissioner’s Office.
2.7 At our written request, you will enter into applicable standard contractual clauses issued by the European Commission, any supervisory authority or other competent body from time to time (or take any other action, as we require) for the purposes of ensuring that any transfers of Personal Data between us comply with Data Protection Laws.
2.8 You shall not provide to us any Data including any Personal Data beyond the data provided to us as part of the Cloud Services except where the provision of that data is required by us to comply with Data Protection Laws or a specific request made pursuant to those laws. In particular, you shall never provide us with the name, email address or other direct contact information relating to any End Users except where this is required by law or by any court, Supervisory Authority or other competent authority. Nothing in this clause 2.8 shall reduce or otherwise affect our rights under clause 2.1 of this Data Addendum.
2.9 If we receive any requests from any End Users exercising their rights under Data Protection Laws in connection with the Cloud Services, we will notify you and provide you with the relevant details of the request. As between you and us, you shall be responsible for responding to and fulfilling to all such rights.
2.10 You shall promptly notify us in writing with full details if you fail to fulfil any of your responsibilities set out in Annex 2 to this Data Addendum.
2.11 Each party shall bear the costs of performance of its obligations under this Data Addendum except where expressly stated otherwise.
3 Terms applicable where we are a Processor
If we agree with you in writing (including in any applicable Order) that we will not make any use of your Data that is Personal Data for our own business purposes, we will Process that data as a Processor only and you shall be the Controller of that Processing. If we act as a Processor, we will enter into a separate data processing addendum with you and the provisions below in clause 4 of this Data Addendum shall not apply.
