Customer shall notify CaliberMind of any changes in, or revocation of, the permission to use, disclose, or otherwise Process Customer Personal Data that would impact CaliberMind’s ability to comply with the Agreement, or Data Protection Laws.
4. Confidentiality. CaliberMind shall take reasonable steps to ensure that individuals that process Customer Personal Data are subject to obligations of confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
5. Security. Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context, and purposes of Processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, CaliberMind shall in relation to Customer Personal Data implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk. Customer acknowledges that, through its users, Customer: (1) controls the type and substance of Customer Personal Data; and (b) sets user permissions to access Customer Personal Data; and therefore, Customer is responsible for reviewing and evaluating whether the documented functionality of the Services meets Customer’s required security obligations relating to Customer Personal Data under Data Protection Laws.
6. Subprocessing. CaliberMind may engage Subprocessors in connection with the provision of the Services, provided that: (1) CaliberMind has entered into a written agreement with each Subprocessor containing data protection obligations not less protective than those in this Addendum with respect to the protection of Customer Personal Data to the extent applicable to the nature of the Services provided by such Subprocessor; and (2) CaliberMind shall be liable for the acts and omissions of its Subprocessors to the same extent CaliberMind would be liable if performing the Services of each Subprocessor directly under the terms of this Addendum. CaliberMind’s current list of Subprocessors for the Services is available at [calibermind.com/subprocessor-list] (“Subprocessor List”), which Customer hereby approves and authorizes. CaliberMind may engage additional Subprocessors as CaliberMind considers reasonably appropriate for the Processing of Customer Personal Data in accordance with this Addendum, provided that CaliberMind shall notify Customer of the addition or replacement of Subprocessors by making modifications to the Subprocessor List. Customer shall be responsible for periodically checking the Subprocessor List to remain informed of CaliberMind’s current list of Subprocessors. Customer shall be responsible for periodically checking the Subprocessor List to remain informed of CaliberMind’s current list of Subprocessors. Customer may, on reasonable grounds, object to a new Subprocessor by notifying CaliberMind in writing within 10 days of CaliberMind updating the Subprocessor List, giving reasons for Customer’s objection. Customer’s failure to object within such 10 day period shall be deemed Customer’s waiver of its right to object to CaliberMind’s use of a new Subprocessor added to the Subprocessor List. In the event Customer objects to a new Subprocessor, CaliberMind will use reasonable efforts to make available to Customer a change in the Services or recommend a commercially reasonable change to Customer’s configuration or use of the Services to avoid Processing of Customer Personal Data by the objected to new Subprocessor without unreasonably burdening Customer. If CaliberMind is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period of time, which shall not exceed 30 days, Customer may terminate, as Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, the portion of the Agreement with respect only to those Services which cannot be provided by CaliberMind without the use of the objected to new Subprocessor by providing written notice to CaliberMind.
7. Data Subject Rights. CaliberMind shall promptly notify Customer if it receives a request from a Data Subject under any Data Protection Laws in respect to Customer Personal Data. In the event that any Data Subject exercises any of its rights under the Data Protection Laws in relation to Customer Personal Data, CaliberMind will shall use reasonable commercial efforts to assist Customer in fulfilling its obligations as Controller following written request from Customer, provided that CaliberMind may charge Customer on a time and materials basis in the event that CaliberMind considers, in its reasonable discretion, that such assistance is onerous, complex, frequent, or time consuming.
8. Personal Data Breach. In the event of a Personal Data Breach, CaliberMind will notify Customer without undue delay after becoming aware of the Personal Data Breach. Such notification may be delivered to an email address provided by Customer or by direct communication (for example, by phone call or an in-person meeting). Customer is solely responsible for ensuring that the appropriate notification contact details are current and valid. CaliberMind will take reasonable steps to provide Customer with information available to CaliberMind that Customer may reasonably require to comply with its obligations as Controller to notify impacted Data Subjects or Supervisory Authorities.
9. Data Protection Impact Assessment and Prior Consultation. In the event that Customer considers that the Processing of Customer Personal Data requires a privacy impact assessment to be undertaken or requires assistance with any prior consultations to any Supervisory Authority of Customer, following written request from Customer, CaliberMind shall use reasonable commercial efforts to provide relevant information and assistance to Customer to fulfil such request, provided that CaliberMind may charge Customer on a time and materials basis in the event that CaliberMind considers, in its reasonable discretion, that such assistance is onerous, complex, frequent, or time consuming.
10. Deletion or Return of Customer Personal Data.Unless otherwise required by applicable Data Protection Laws, following termination or expiration of the Agreement CaliberMind shall, at Customer’s option, delete or return all Customer Personal Data and all copies to Customer.
11. Relevant Records and Audit Rights. CaliberMind will use external auditors to annually audit and verify the adequacy of its security measures and controls (“Audit”). The reports generated by the Audit (“Reports”) will be made available to Customer upon written request no more than annually subject to the confidentiality obligations of the Agreement or a mutually-agreed non-disclosure agreement. To the extent required by Data Protection Laws and if Customer requires information in addition to the Reports, CaliberMind shall make available to Customer on request all information reasonably necessary to demonstrate compliance with this Addendum and allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections by Customer or an auditor mandated by Customer, not being competitors of CaliberMind (“Mandated Auditor”) of any premises where the Processing of Customer Personal Data takes place in order to assess compliance with this Addendum (a “Customer Audit”). CaliberMind shall provide reasonable cooperation to Customer with respect to a Customer Audit. CaliberMind shall promptly inform Customer if, in its opinion, a Customer Audit infringes the Data Protection Laws or any other confidentially obligations with CaliberMind’s other customers. Customer agrees that: (1) a Customer Audit may only occur during normal business hours, and where possible only after reasonable notice to CaliberMind (not less than 20 days’ advance written notice); (2) a Customer Audit will be conducted in a manner that does not have any adverse impact on CaliberMind’s normal business operations; (3) Customer and any Mandated Auditor will comply with CaliberMind’s standard safety, confidentiality, and security procedures in conducting any Customer Audit; and (4) any records, data, or information accessed by Customer or any Mandated Auditor in the performance of any Customer Audit will be deemed to be the Confidential Information of CaliberMind. To the extent any Customer Audit incurs in excess of 20 hours of CaliberMind personnel time, CaliberMind may charge Customer on a time and materials basis for any such excess hours. If the controls or measures to be assessed in a request for a Customer Audit are addressed in an ISO/IEC 27001 or SOC 2 Type II audit report performed by a qualified and independent third party auditor within the 12 months preceding request for a Customer Audit and CaliberMind has certified in writing that there are no known material changes in the controls audited, CaliberMind agrees to accept such report in lieu of requesting an audit of such controls or measures.

12.2 Engagement of New Subprocessors. Pursuant to Clause 5(h) of the Standard Contractual Clauses, Customer acknowledges and expressly agrees that CaliberMind may engage new Subprocessors as described in this Addendum.
12.3 Copies of Subprocessor Agreements. The parties agree that CaliberMind may redact the copies of the Subprocessor agreements that must be provided by CaliberMind to Customer pursuant to Clause 5(j) of the Standard Contractual Clauses to remove commercial information, confidential information, and clauses unrelated to the Standard Contractual Clauses or their equivalent. CaliberMind will provide copies of the Subprocessor agreements, only upon request by Customer.

12.5 Certification of Deletion. The parties agree that the certification of deletion of Personal Data that is described in Clause 12(1) of the Standard Contractual Clauses shall be provided by CaliberMind to Customer only upon Customer’s request.
13. General Terms. Any obligation imposed on CaliberMind under this Addendum in relation to the Processing of Personal Data shall survive any termination or expiration of this Addendum. Should any provision of this Addendum be invalid or unenforceable, then the remainder of this Addendum shall remain valid and in force. The invalid or unenforceable provision shall be either: (1) amended as necessary to ensure its validity and enforceability, while preserving the intent of the provision as closely as possible or, if this is not possible, (2) construed in a manner as if the invalid or unenforceable part had never been contained therein. With regard to the subject matter of this Addendum, the provisions of this Addendum shall prevail over the Agreement with regard to data protection obligations for Personal Data of a Data Subject under Data Protection Laws. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Addendum or in the Agreement (including, without limitation, either party’s indemnification obligations), neither party will be responsible for any GDPR fines issued or levied under Article 83 of the GDPR against the other party by a regulatory authority or governmental body in connection with such other party’s violation of the GDPR. Customer acknowledges that the Services are not intended for the Processing of Special Categories of Personal Data. Customer will not provide (or cause to be provided) any Special Categories of Personal Data to CaliberMind for Processing under the Agreement or this Addendum. Except in the context of a specific agreement between the parties regarding Processing Special Categories of Personal Data, any transmission or processing of Special Categories of Personal Data is at Customer’s own risk. CaliberMind will have no liability whatsoever for Special Categories of Personal Data, whether in connection with a Personal Data Breach or otherwise. For the avoidance of doubt, this Addendum will not apply to Special Categories of Personal Data. As between the parties to this Addendum, each party’s liability and remedies under this Addendum are subject to the aggregate liability limitations and damages exclusions set forth in the Agreement. Unless prohibited by Data Protection Laws, this Addendum is governed by the laws stipulated in the Agreement and the parties to this Addendum hereby submit to the choice of jurisdiction and venue stipulated in the Agreement, if any, with respect to any dispute arising under this Addendum.
