14. Data Processing
In this section of the Terms:
“controller”, “processor”, “data subject”, “personal data”, “processing” (and “process”) and “special categories of personal data” have the meanings given in Applicable Data Protection Law;
“Applicable Data Protection Law” means the EU General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation 2016/679).
Our relationship: you appoint us as a processor to process the personal data described in these Terms or on our Website (the “Data“) and for the purposes described including, to provide you with, and update and improve, our Services (the “Permitted Purpose“). We must both comply with the obligations that apply to each of us under Applicable Data Protection Law.
Prohibited data: Unless you have specifically asked us and we have agreed that you may, you must not disclose (and must not permit any data subject to disclose) any special categories of personal data to us for processing.
International transfers: we must not transfer the Data outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA“) unless we have taken the necessary measures to ensure the transfer complies with Applicable Data Protection Law. Those measures may include transferring the Data to a recipient in a country that the European Commission has decided provides adequate protection for personal data (e.g., New Zealand), to a recipient in the United States that has certified its compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield, or to a recipient that has executed standard contractual clauses adopted or approved by the European Commission.
Confidentiality of processing: we must ensure that any person we authorise to process the Data (an “Authorised Person“) must protect the Data in accordance with the confidentiality obligations we owe you.
Security: we will implement technical and organisational measures to protect the Data (i) from accidental or unlawful destruction, and (ii) loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to the Data (a “Security Incident“).
Subcontracting: you consent to us engaging third party sub-processors to process the Data for the Permitted Purpose provided that: (i) we impose data protection terms on any sub-processor we appoint that require it to protect the Data to the standard required by Applicable Data Protection Law; and (ii) we remain liable for acts and omissions of our sub-processor.
Cooperation and data subjects’ rights: we must provide reasonable and timely assistance to you (but at your expense) to enable you to respond to: (i) any request from a data subject to exercise any of its rights under Applicable Data Protection Law; and (ii) any other communication, question or complaint received from a data subject, regulator or other third party that is connected with the processing of the Data. If we receive any communication, question or complaint directly we will promptly inform you and provide full details.
Security incidents: If we become aware of a confirmed Security Incident, we must inform you without undue delay and provide you with reasonable information and cooperate with you so that you can comply with any data breach reporting obligations you have under Applicable Data Protection Law. We must also take reasonably necessary measures and actions to remedy or mitigate the effects of the Security Incident and keep you informed of all material developments in connection with the Security Incident.
Deletion or return of Data: When you finish using our Services, we will, on your specific request, delete or return the Data in our possession or under our control (we will decide in what way we do this but will always act reasonably). This does not apply where we are required by applicable law to retain some or all of the Data, or to Data we have archived on back-up systems, and in that situation we will securely isolate and protect that Data from further processing.
