In such a case the data exporter shall be entitled to take the measures foreseen in Clause 5(b).
These Clauses shall be governed by the law of one of the EU Member States, provided such law allows for third-party beneficiary rights. The Parties agree that this shall be the law of the Data Exporter’s Member State
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.
- 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 sub-processor which imposes the same obligations on the sub-processor as are imposed on the data importer under the Clauses. Where the sub-processor 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 sub-processor’s obligations under such agreement.
- The prior written contract between the data importer and the sub-processor 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 sub-processor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
- The provisions relating to data protection aspects for sub-processing 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.
- The data exporter shall keep a list of sub-processing 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.
OBLIGATION AFTER THE TERMINATION OF PERSONAL DATA-PROCESSING SERVICES
- The parties agree that on the termination of the provision of data-processing services, the data importer and the sub-processor 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.
- The data importer and the sub-processor 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.

APPENDIX 3 TO THE STANDARD CONTRACTUAL CLAUSES
This Appendix forms part of the Standard Contractual Clauses (the 'Clauses').
This Appendix sets out the parties' interpretation of their respective obligations under specific terms of the Clauses. Where a party complies with the interpretations set out in this Appendix, that party shall be deemed by the other party to have complied with its commitments under the Clauses.
For the purposes of this Appendix, "DPA" means the Data Processing Agreement in place between Customer and 42Gears and to which these Clauses are incorporated, and "Agreement" shall have the meaning given to it in the DPA.
CLAUSE 4(h) AND 8: DISCLOSURE OF THESE CLAUSES
- Data exporter agrees that these Clauses constitute data importer's Confidential Information as that term is defined in the Agreement and may not be disclosed by data exporter to any third party without data importer's prior written consent unless permitted pursuant to Agreement. This shall not prevent disclosure of these Clauses to a data subject pursuant to Clause 4(h) or a supervisory authority pursuant to Clause 8.
CLAUSES 5(a) AND 5(b): SUSPENSION OF DATA TRANSFERS AND TERMINATION
- The parties acknowledge that a data importer may process the personal data only on behalf of the data exporter and in compliance with its instructions as provided by the data exporter and the Clauses.
- The parties acknowledge that if data importer cannot provide such compliance in accordance with Clause 5(a) and Clause 5(b) for whatever reason, the data importer agrees to inform promptly the data exporter of its inability to comply, in which case the data exporter is entitled to suspend the transfer of data and/or terminate the contract the affected parts of the Services in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
- If the data exporter intends to suspend the transfer of personal data and/or terminate the affected parts of the Services, it shall endeavour to provide notice to the data importer and provide data importer with a reasonable period of time to cure the noncompliance (“Cure Period”).
- If required, the parties shall reasonably cooperate with each other during the Cure Period to agree what additional safeguards or other measures, if any, may be reasonably required to ensure the data importer's compliance with the Clauses and applicable data protection law.
- If after the Cure Period the data importer has not or cannot cure the non-compliance then the data exporter may suspend and/or terminate the affected part of the Services in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement without liability to either party (but without prejudice to any fees incurred by the data exporter prior to suspension or termination). The data exporter shall not be required to provide such notice in instances where it considers there is a material risk of harm to data subjects or their personal data.
CLAUSE 5(f): AUDIT
- Data exporter acknowledges and agrees that it exercises its audit right under Clause 5(f) by instructing data importer to comply with the audit measures described in the 'Audit' section of the DPA.
CLAUSE 5(f): DISCLOSURE OF SUBPROCESSOR AGREEMENTS
- The parties acknowledge the obligation of the data importer to promptly send a copy of any onward sub processor agreement it concludes under the Clauses to the data exporter.
- The parties further acknowledge that, pursuant to subprocessor confidentiality restrictions, data importer may be restricted from disclosing onward subprocessor agreements to data exporter. Notwithstanding this, data importer shall use reasonable efforts to require any subprocessor it appoints to permit it to disclose the subprocessor agreement to data exporter.
- Even where data importer cannot disclose a subprocessor agreement to data exporter, the parties agree that, upon the request of data exporter, data importer shall (on a confidential basis) provide all information it reasonably requires in connection with such subprocessing agreement to data exporter.
CLAUSE 6: LIABILITY
- Any claims brought under the Clauses shall be subject to the terms and conditions, including but not limited to, the exclusions and limitations set forth in the Agreement. In no event shall any party limit its liability with respect to any data subject rights under these Clauses.
CLAUSE 11: ONWARD SUBPROCESSING
- The parties acknowledge that, pursuant to FAQ II.1 in Article 29 Working Party Paper WP 176 entitled "FAQs in order to address some issues raised by the entry into force of the EU Commission Decision 2010/87/EU of 5 February 2010 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries under Directive 95/46/EC" the data exporter may provide a general consent to onward subprocessing by the data importer.
- Accordingly, data exporter provides a general consent to data importer, pursuant to Clause 11 of these Clauses, to engage onward subprocessors. Such consent is conditional on data importer’s compliance with the requirements set out in the 'Sub-Processors' section of the DPA.
CLAUSE 12: OBLIGATION AFTER THE TERMINATION OF PERSONAL DATA-PROCESSING SERVICES
- Data importer agrees that the data exporter will fulfil its obligation to return or destroy all the personal data on the termination of the provision of data-processing services by complying with the 'Deletion or Return of Personal Data' section of the DPA.
CLAUSE 13: OBLIGATIONS OF THE DATA IMPORTER IN CASE OF ACCESS BY PUBLIC AUTHORITIES
- The data importer agrees to notify the data exporter and, where possible, the data subject promptly (if necessary with the help of the data exporter) if it: (i) receives a legally binding request from a public authority, including judicial authorities, under the laws of the country of destination for the disclosure of personal data transferred pursuant to these Clauses; such notification shall include information about the personal data requested, the requesting authority, the legal basis for the request and the response provided; or (ii) becomes aware of any direct access by public authorities to personal data transferred pursuant to these Clauses in accordance with the laws of the country of destination; such notification shall include all information available to the importer.
- If the data importer is prohibited from notifying the data exporter and/or the data subject under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer agrees to use its best efforts to obtain a waiver of the prohibition, with a view to communicating as much information as possible, as soon as possible. The data importer agrees to document its best efforts in order to be able to demonstrate them on request of the data exporter.
- Where permissible under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer agrees to provide the data exporter, at regular intervals for the duration of the contract, with as much relevant information as possible on the requests received (in particular, number of requests, type of data requested, requesting authority/ies, whether requests have been challenged and the outcome of such challenges, etc.).
- The data importer agrees to preserve the information pursuant to paragraphs (a) to (c) for the duration of the contract and make it available to the competent supervisory authority on request.
Review of legality and data minimisation
- The data importer agrees to review the legality of the request for disclosure, in particular whether it remains within the powers granted to the requesting public authority, and to challenge the request if, after careful assessment, it concludes that there are reasonable grounds to consider that the request is unlawful under the laws of the country of destination, applicable obligations under international law and principles of international comity. The data importer shall, under the same conditions, pursue possibilities of appeal. When challenging a request, the data importer shall seek interim measures with a view to suspending the effects of the request until the competent judicial authority has decided on its merits. It shall not disclose the personal data requested until required to do so under the applicable procedural rules.
- The data importer agrees to document its legal assessment and any challenge to the request for disclosure and, to the extent permissible under the laws of the country of destination, make the documentation available to the data exporter. It shall also make it available to the competent supervisory authority on request.
- The data importer agrees to provide the minimum amount of information permissible when responding to a request for disclosure, based on a reasonable interpretation of the request.
APPENDIX 4- JURISDICTION-SPECIFIC TERMS
- Objection to Sub-processors. Customers may object in writing to 42Gears’s appointment of a new Sub- processor within five (5) calendar days of receiving notice in accordance with Section 5.1 of DPA, provided that such objection is based on reasonable grounds relating to data protection. In such an event, the parties shall discuss such concerns in good faith with a view to achieving a commercially reasonable resolution. If no such resolution can be reached, 42Gears will, at its sole discretion, either not appoint such Sub-processor, or permit Customer to suspend or terminate the affected Service in accordance with the termination provisions in the Agreement without liability to either party (but without prejudice to any fees incurred by Customer prior to suspension or termination).
- Government data access requests. As a matter of general practice, 42Gears does not voluntarily provide government agencies or authorities (including law enforcement) with access to or information about 42Gears accounts (including Customer Data). If 42Gears receives a compulsory request (whether through a subpoena, court order, search warrant, or other valid legal process) from any government agency or authority (including law enforcement) for access to or information about a 42Gears account (including Customer Data) belonging to a Customer whose primary contact information indicates the Customer is located in Europe, 42Gears shall: (i) inform the government agency that 42Gears is a processor of the data; (ii) attempt to redirect the agency to request the data directly from Customer; and (iii) notify Customer via email sent to Customer’s primary contact email address of the request to allow Customer to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy. As part of this effort, 42Gears may provide Customer’s primary and billing contact information to the agency. 42Gears shall not be required to comply with this paragraph 2 if it is legally prohibited from doing so, or it has a reasonable and good-faith belief that urgent access is necessary to prevent an imminent risk of serious harm to any individual, public safety, or 42Gears’s Site, or Service(s).
1.For the avoidance of doubt, when European Union law ceases to apply to the UK upon the UK's withdrawal from the European Union and until such time as the UK is deemed to provide adequate protection for personal data (within the meaning of applicable EU Data Protection Law) then to the extend 42Gears processes (or causes to be processed) any Customer Data protected by EU Data Protection Law applicable to EEA and Switzerland in the United Kingdom, 42Gears shall process such Customer Data in compliance with the SCCs or any applicable Alternative Transfer Mechanism implemented in accordance with Section 9.4 and 9.5 of this DPA.
- Except as described otherwise, the definitions of: “controller” includes “Business”; "processor" includes “Service Provider”; “data subject” includes “Consumer”; “personal data” includes “Personal Information”; in each case as defined under CCPA.
- For this “California” section of Annex 4 only, “42Gears Services” means the suite of unified endpoint management tools and products available for 42Gears Customers to use, including without limitation, SureMDM, SureFox etc. and other related support services made available through the 42Gears, as may be further described in the App and/or on the 42Gears Site.
For this “California” section of Annex 4 only, “Permitted Purposes” shall include processing Customer Data only for the purposes described in this DPA and in accordance with Customer’s documented lawful instructions as set forth in this DPA, as necessary to comply with applicable law, as otherwise agreed in writing, including, without limitation, in the Agreement, or as otherwise may be permitted for “service providers” under the CCPA.
42Gears’s obligations regarding data subject requests, as described in Section 8 of this DPA, apply to Consumer’s rights under the CCPA.
Notwithstanding any use restriction contained elsewhere in this DPA, 42Gears shall process Customer Data only to perform the 42Gears Services, for the Permitted Purposes and/or in accordance with Customer’s documented lawful instructions, except where otherwise required by applicable law.
42Gears may de-identify or aggregate Customer Data as part of performing the Service specified in this DPA and the Agreement.
Where Sub-processors process the personal data of Customer contacts, 42Gears takes steps to ensure that such Sub-processors are Service Providers under the CCPA with whom 42Gears has entered into a written contract that includes terms substantially similar to this DPA or are otherwise exempt from the CCPA’s definition of “sale”. 42Gears conducts appropriate due diligence on its Sub-processors.
- 42Gears takes steps to ensure that 42Gears's Sub-processors, as described in Section 5 (Sub-processing) of the DPA, are third parties under PIPEDA, with whom 42Gears has entered into a written contract that includes terms substantially similar to this DPA. 42Gears conducts appropriate due diligence on its Sub- processors.
- 42Gears will implement technical and organizational measures as set forth in Section 7 (Security) of the DPA.
