(a) controller, processor, data subject, personal data, personal data breach and processing shall have the meaning given to them in the GDPR;
(b) Customer means you, the purchaser of our service;
(c) Customer Personal Data means any personal data of individuals based in the UK or the EEA which HighLevel processes in connection with this agreement, in the capacity of a processor on behalf of the Customer, including all data collected, stored, processed, contacted and otherwise used by you using our service or platform;
(d) GDPR means the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679), and the retained UK version of the same; and
(e) Standard Contractual Clauses means the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of Personal Data from the European Union to processors established in third countries (controller-to-processor transfers), as set out in the Annex to Commission Decision 2010/87/EU, a completed copy of which is attached at Annex B.
2. Both parties will comply with all applicable requirements of the GDPR. This schedule is in addition to, and does not relieve, remove or replace, a party's obligations or rights under the GDPR.
3. The parties have determined that for the purposes of the GDPR HighLevel shall process the Customer Personal Data as processor on behalf of the Customer.
4. Without prejudice to paragraph 2 above, the Customer will ensure that it has all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of Customer Personal Data to HighLevel, and the lawful collection of the same by the Customer using the HighLevel services or platform for the duration and purposes of this agreement, and shall indemnify HighLevel against all loss and damage (including fines) arising from a failure to do so.
5. In relation to the Customer Personal Data, Annex A sets out the scope, nature and purpose of processing by HighLevel, the duration of the processing and the types of personal data and categories of data subject.
6. Without prejudice to paragraph 2 above, HighLevel shall, in relation to Customer Personal Data:
(a) process that Customer Personal Data only on the documented instructions of the Customer, unless HighLevel is required by any applicable laws to otherwise process that Customer Personal Data (Purpose). HighLevel shall inform the Customer if, in the opinion of HighLevel, the instructions of the Customer breach the GDPR;
(b) implement sufficient technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of Customer Personal Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Customer Personal Data, which the Customer has reviewed and confirms are appropriate to the harm that might result from the unauthorised or unlawful processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected, having regard to the state of technological development and the cost of implementing any measures;
(c) ensure that any personnel engaged and authorised by HighLevel to process Customer Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory or common law obligation of confidentiality;
(d) assist the Customer insofar as this is possible (taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to HighLevel), and at the Customer's cost and written request, in responding to any request from a data subject and in ensuring the Customer's compliance with its obligations under the GDPR with respect to security, breach notifications, impact assessments and consultations with supervisory authorities or regulators;
(e) notify the Customer without undue delay on becoming aware of a personal data breach involving the Customer Personal Data;

(g) maintain records to demonstrate its compliance with this paragraph.
7. The Customer provides its prior, general authorisation for HighLevel to:
(a) appoint processors to process the Customer Personal Data, provided that HighLevel:
(i) shall ensure that the terms on which it appoints such processors comply with the GDPR, and are consistent with the obligations imposed on HighLevel in this paragraph; and

9. Either party may, at any time on not less than 30 days' notice, revise this schedule by replacing it with any applicable controller to processor standard clauses or similar terms forming part of an applicable certification scheme (which shall apply when replaced by attachment to this agreement).

(a) that the processing, including the transfer itself, of the personal data has been and will continue to be carried out in accordance with the relevant provisions of the applicable data protection law (and, where applicable, has been notified to the relevant authorities of the Member State where the data exporter is established) and does not violate the relevant provisions of that State;

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.

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.
12.2 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.
