2.2. If Data Protection Law applies to the Processing of Personal Data, the parties agree that Revolear shall Process Personal Data only as a Processor acting on behalf of Customer and, with respect to CCPA and other applicable U.S. state privacy laws, as a Service Provider, in each case, regardless of whether Customer acts as a Controller or as a Processor on behalf of a third-party Controller with respect to Personal Data.
2.3. The subject matter, nature and purpose of the Processing, the types of Personal Data and categories of Data Subjects are set out in Annex I, which is an integral part of this DPA.
3.1. Revolear will only Process Personal Data to provide the Services to Customer.
3.2. It is the parties’ intent that Revolear is a Service Provider, and Revolear certifies that it will not (a) Sell or Share Personal Data; (b) Process Personal Data outside the direct business relationship between the parties or for any purpose other than to provide the Services in accordance with the Agreement, unless required or authorized by Data Protection Law; or (c) combine the Personal Data that Revolear receives from or on behalf of Customer with personal data that Revolear collects or receives from another person.
3.3. Customer’s instructions are documented in Annex I, the Agreement, and any applicable statement of work.

Such instructions must be provided to Revolear in writing and acknowledged in writing by Revolear as constituting instructions for purposes of this DPA, and Revolear may charge a reasonable fee to comply with any such additional instructions.
3.5. The parties acknowledge and agree that the disclosure of Personal Data by the Customer to Revolear does not form part of any monetary or other valuable consideration exchanged between the parties.
Customer is responsible for the lawfulness of Personal Data Processing in connection with the Services. Customer shall (i) provide all notices and obtain all consents, permissions and rights necessary under applicable Data Protection Law for Revolear to lawfully Process Personal Data for the purposes contemplated by the Agreement; (ii) make appropriate use of the Services to ensure a level of security appropriate to the particular content of the Personal Data; (iii) comply with all Data Protection Law applicable to the collection of Personal Data and the transfer of such Personal Data to Revolear and its Subprocessors; and (iv) ensure its Processing instructions comply with applicable laws (including applicable Data Protection Law).

5.3. Where Revolear intends to engage any additional Subprocessor not already identified on the Subprocessor List, Revolear will update the Subprocessor List on Revolear’s website. If Customer does not make a reasonable objection to the proposed engagement within 30 days of Revolear updating the Subprocessor List, Customer is deemed to have authorized the engagement of such Subprocessor. If Customer objects prior to the appointment of such Subprocessor on reasonable grounds relating to the Subprocessor’s ability to protect Personal Data in accordance with this DPA, Revolear will work with Customer in good faith to resolve the issue. If an alternative solution cannot be found, Customer and Revolear may agree to terminate the impacted Services, and the Customer shall pay Revolear any fees due for the Services performed prior to termination.

5.5. To the extent required by law, Revolear will provide a copy of Revolear’s agreements with Subprocessors to Customer upon request. Revolear may redact commercially sensitive information before providing such agreements to Customer.
6.1. In the event that the Personal Data Processed under the DPA is subject to Data Protection Law and the transfer of Personal Data to Revolear would be restricted in the absence of the Standard Contractual Clauses, the parties agree that the Standard Contractual Clauses shall be incorporated into this DPA with Customer as the “data exporter” and Revolear as the “data importer.”
6.2. The EU SCCs are completed as follows: the optional docking clause in Clause 7 is implemented; Clause 9(a) option 2 is implemented and the time period therein is specified as thirty (30) days; the optional redress clause in Clause 11(a) is struck; the governing law in Clause 17 is the law of Ireland; the court in Clause 18(b) are the courts of Ireland; and Annex 1, 2 and 3 to the EU SCCs are the appendices of this DPA.

7.1. Revolear will implement and maintain technical and organizational measures in relation to the Processing of Personal Data designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risks which may occur as a result of Processing Personal Data, and in particular the risks of accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to Personal Data, including the measures detail on its website at https://trust.revolear.com.
7.2. Revolear will inform Customer without undue delay after becoming aware of a Personal Data Breach, and will provide Customer with details of the Personal Data Breach and reasonable assistance in remediating and mitigating the effects of the Personal Data Breach.
7.3. Revolear’s notification of or response to a Personal Data Breach under Section 7.2 will not be construed as an acknowledgement by Revolear of any fault or liability with respect to the Personal Data Breach.
7.4. In the event of a Personal Data Breach, Customer is solely responsible for determining whether Data Protection Law requires the notification of affected individuals, regulators and other parties of the Personal Data Breach.

(a) complying with Data Subjects’ requests to exercise Data Subject Rights;

(d) conducting data protection impact assessments, and prior consultations with Supervisory Authorities; and
(e) providing notifications to affected individuals, regulators and other parties in connection with Personal Data Breaches.

9.2.

10.. Upon Customer’s prior written request, and no more than once annually, Revolear will make available to Customer the required information reasonably necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations of Data Protection Law and this DPA. Revolear shall provide additional information as reasonably necessary to allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted by a Supervisory Authority, Customer or another auditor mandated by law.
10.2. If a third party is to conduct a Customer-requested audit, Revolear may object to the auditor if the auditor is, in Revolear’s reasonable opinion, not suitably qualified or independent, a competitor of Revolear or otherwise manifestly unsuitable. Such objection by Revolear will require Customer to appoint another auditor or conduct the audit itself.
10.3. The audit must be conducted during regular business hours at the applicable facility, subject to an audit plan agreed to between the parties at least two weeks in advance and may not unreasonably interfere with Revolear’s business activities.
10.4. If Customer’s requested audit scope is addressed in an SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 Type 2, ISO, NIST or similar audit report performed by a qualified third-party auditor within twelve (12) months of Customer’s audit request and Revolear confirms there are no known material changes in the controls audited, Customer agrees to accept those findings in lieu of requesting an audit of the controls covered by the report.
10.5. Any Customer-requested audits are at Customer’s expense. Customer shall reimburse Revolear for any time expended by Revolear or its Subprocessors in connection with any Customer-requested audits or inspections at Revolear’s then-current professional services rates, which shall be made available to Customer upon request.
10.6. Customer may use the audit reports only for the purposes of meeting Customer’s regulatory audit requirements and/or confirming compliance with the requirements of this DPA. The audit reports are confidential information of the parties under the terms of the Agreement.
The total combined liability of either party and its affiliates towards the other party and its affiliates, whether in contract, tort or any other theory of liability, under or in connection with Agreement and this DPA combined, will be limited to limitations on liability or other liability caps agreed to by the parties in the Agreement.
Revolear will keep all Personal Data and all information relating to the Processing thereof in strict confidence.
Customer acknowledges and agrees that Revolear may create and derive from Processing related to the Services anonymized and/or aggregated data that does not identify Customer or any natural person, and use, publicize or share with third parties such data to improve Revolear’s products and services and for its other legitimate business purposes.
Revolear will make all notifications required under this DPA as agreed to in the Agreement.
1.

Upon request from Customer, Revolear will certify such secure deletion in writing within thirty (30) days of Customer’s request.
1. This DPA may only be modified by a written amendment signed by both Customer and Revolear.
If any provision of this DPA is found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, then the invalidity or unenforceability of such provision does not affect any other provision of this DPA and all provisions not affected by such invalidity or unenforceability will remain in full force and effect.
