Customer shall, in its use of the Services and provision of instructions, Process Personal Data in accordance with the requirements of applicable Data Protection Law (including where the Customer is a Processor, by ensuring that the ultimate Controller does so).
Customer shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, and legality of Personal Data and the means by which Customer acquired Personal Data.
2.3 Alphacloud’s Processing of Personal Data. As Customer’s Processor, Alphacloud shall only Process Personal Data for the following purposes: (i) Processing in accordance with the Agreement and applicable Order Form(s); (ii) Processing initiated by Authorized Users in their use of the Services; and (iii) Processing to comply with other reasonable instructions provided by Customer (e.g., via email or support tickets) that are consistent with the terms of the Agreement (individually and collectively, the “Purpose”).

The duration of the Processing, the nature and purpose of the Processing, the types of Personal Data and categories of Data Subjects Processed under this DPA are further specified in Schedule 2 (Description of Processing/Transfer) to this DPA.
3. RIGHTS OF DATA SUBJECTS
3.1 Data Subject Requests. Alphacloud shall, to the extent legally permitted, promptly notify Customer of any complaint, dispute or request it has received from a Data Subject under applicable Data Protection Law in relation to Personal Data, such as a Data Subject’s right of access, right to rectification, restriction of Processing, erasure (“right to be forgotten”), data portability, objection to the Processing, or its right not be subject to an automated individual decision making (each, a “Data Subject Request”). Alphacloud shall not respond to a Data Subject Request itself, except that the Customer authorizes Alphacloud to redirect the Data Subject Request as necessary to allow Customer to respond directly. Taking into account the nature of the Processing, Alphacloud shall assist Customer by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfilment of Customer’s obligation to respond to a Data Subject Request as required by applicable Data Protection Laws. In addition, to the extent Customer, in its use of the Services, does not have the ability to address a Data Subject Request, Alphacloud shall, upon Customer’s request, provide commercially reasonable efforts to assist Customer in responding to such Data Subject Request, to the extent Alphacloud is legally permitted to do so and the response to such Data Subject Request is required under applicable Data Protection Laws. To the extent legally permitted, Customer shall be responsible for any costs arising from Alphacloud’s provision of such assistance, including any fees associated with provision of additional functionality.
4.1 Appointment of Sub-processors. Customer acknowledges and agrees that (a) Alphacloud’s Affiliates may be retained as Sub-processors through written agreement with Alphacloud and (b) Alphacloud and Alphacloud’s Affiliates respectively may engage third-party Sub-processors in connection with the provision of the Services. As a condition to permitting a third-party Sub-processor to Process Personal Data, Alphacloud or a Alphacloud Affiliate will enter into a written agreement with each Sub-processor containing data protection obligations that provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Data as those in this DPA, to the extent applicable to the nature of the Services provided by such Sub-processor.
Customer acknowledges that Alphacloud is located in Singapore and is involved in providing the Services to Customer either directly or through the provision of support to Alphacloud Software Limited. In the event Customer enters into the Standard Contractual Clauses, then Customer hereby grants Alphacloud a general written authorization to appoint Sub-processors in accordance with clause 9 of the Standard Contractual Clauses and this section 4.
4.3 Objection Right for New Sub-processors. Customer may reasonably object to Alphacloud’s use of a new Sub-processor (e.g., if making Personal Data available to the Sub-processor may violate applicable Data Protection Law or weaken the protections for such Personal Data) by notifying Alphacloud promptly in writing within ten (10) business days after receipt of Alphacloud’s notice in accordance with the mechanism set out in Section 4.2. Such notice shall explain the reasonable grounds for the objection. In the event Customer objects to a new Sub-processor, as permitted in the preceding sentence, Alphacloud will use commercially 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 Personal Data by the objected-to new Sub-processor without unreasonably burdening Customer. If Alphacloud is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period of time, which shall not exceed thirty (60) days, either party may terminate without penalty the applicable Order Form(s) with respect only to those Services which cannot be provided by Alphacloud without the use of the objected-to new Sub-processor by providing written notice to Alphacloud. Alphacloud will refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of such Order Form(s) following the effective date of termination with respect to such terminated Services, without imposing a penalty for such termination on Customer.
4.4 Liability. Alphacloud shall be liable for the acts and omissions of its Sub-processors to the same extent Alphacloud would be liable if performing the Services of each Sub-processor directly under the terms of this DPA.
5.1 Controls for the Protection of Personal Data. Alphacloud shall maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures for protection of the security (including protection against unauthorized or unlawful Processing and against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration or damage, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, Personal Data), confidentiality and integrity of Personal Data, as set forth in Alphacloud’s Security Practices. Alphacloud regularly monitors compliance with these measures. Alphacloud will not materially decrease the overall security of the Services during a subscription term.
5.2 Audit. Alphacloud shall maintain an audit program to help ensure compliance with the obligations set out in this DPA and shall make available to Customer information to demonstrate compliance with the obligations set out in this DPA.
5.3 Data Protection Impact Assessment. Upon Customer’s request, Alphacloud shall provide Customer with reasonable cooperation and assistance needed to fulfil Customer’s obligation under Data Protection Laws to carry out a data protection impact assessment related to Customer’s use of the Services, to the extent Customer does not otherwise have access to the relevant information, and to the extent such information is available to Alphacloud.
6. PERSONAL DATA INCIDENT MANAGEMENT AND NOTIFICATION
Alphacloud maintains security incident management policies and procedures. Alphacloud shall notify Customer without undue delay of any breach relating to Personal Data (within the meaning of applicable Data Protection Law) of which Alphacloud becomes aware and which may require a notification to be made to a competent Supervisory Authority or Data Subject under applicable Data Protection Law or which Alphacloud is required to notify to Customer under applicable Data Protection Law (a “Personal Data Incident”). Alphacloud shall provide commercially reasonable cooperation and assistance in identifying the cause of such Personal Data Incident and take commercially reasonable steps to remediate the cause to the extent the remediation is within Alphacloud’s control. Except as required by applicable Data Protection Law, the obligations herein shall not apply to incidents that are caused by Customer, Authorized Users and/or any Non-Alphacloud Products.
7. GOVERNMENT ACCESS REQUESTS
7.1 Alphacloud requirements. In its role as a Processor, Alphacloud shall maintain appropriate measures to protect Personal Data in accordance with the requirements of Data Protection Laws, including by implementing appropriate technical and organizational safeguards to protect Personal Data against any interference that goes beyond what is necessary in a democratic society to safeguard national security, defense and public security. If Alphacloud receives a legally binding request to access Personal Data from a Public Authority, Alphacloud shall, unless otherwise legally prohibited, promptly notify Customer including a summary of the nature of the request. To the extent Alphacloud is prohibited by law from providing such notification, Alphacloud shall as appropriate use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a waiver of the prohibition to enable Alphacloud to communicate as much information as possible, as soon as possible. Further, Alphacloud shall challenge the request if, after careful assessment, it considers that the request is unlawful. As reasonable and appropriate Alphacloud shall pursue possibilities of appeal. When challenging a request, Alphacloud 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. Alphacloud agrees it will provide the minimum amount of information permissible when responding to a request for disclosure, based on a reasonable interpretation of the request. Alphacloud shall promptly notify Customer if Alphacloud becomes aware of any direct access by a Public Authority to Personal Data and provide information available to Alphacloud in this respect, to the extent permitted by law. For the avoidance of doubt, this DPA shall not require Alphacloud to pursue actions or inactions that could result in civil or criminal penalty for Alphacloud such as contempt of court.
7.2 Sub-processors requirements. Alphacloud shall ensure that Sub-processors involved in the Processing of Personal data are subject to the relevant commitments regarding Government Access Requests in the Standard Contractual Clauses.
8. RETURN AND DELETION OF PERSONAL DATA
Upon termination of the Services for which Alphacloud is Processing Personal Data, Alphacloud shall, upon Customer’s request, return all Personal Data in Alphacloud’s possession to Customer or securely destroy such Personal Data and demonstrate to the satisfaction of Customer that it has taken such measures, unless applicable law prevents it from returning or destroying all or part of Personal Data. For clarification, depending on the Service plan purchased by Customer, access to export functionality may incur additional charge(s) and/or require purchase of a Service upgrade.
9. CONTROLLER AFFILIATES
9.1 Contractual Relationship. The parties acknowledge and agree that, by executing the DPA, Customer enters into the DPA on behalf of itself and, as applicable, in the name and on behalf of its Controller Affiliates, thereby establishing a separate DPA between Alphacloud and each such Controller Affiliate subject to the provisions of the Agreement and this Section 9 and Section 10. Each Controller Affiliate agrees to be bound by the obligations under this DPA and, to the extent applicable, the Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, a Controller Affiliate is not and does not become a party to the Agreement, and is only a party to the DPA. All access to and use of the Services by Controller Affiliates must comply with the terms and conditions of the Agreement and any violation of the terms and conditions of the Agreement by a Controller Affiliate shall be deemed a violation by Customer.
9.2 Communication. The Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall remain responsible for coordinating all communication with Alphacloud under this DPA and be entitled to make and receive any communication in relation to this DPA on behalf of its Controller Affiliates.
9.3 Rights of Controller Affiliates. If a Controller Affiliate becomes a party to the DPA with Alphacloud, it shall, to the extent required under applicable Data Protection Laws, also be entitled to exercise the rights and seek remedies under this DPA, subject to the following:
9.3.1 Except where applicable Data Protection Laws require the Controller Affiliate to exercise a right or seek any remedy under this DPA against Alphacloud directly by itself, the parties agree that (i) solely the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall exercise any such right or seek any such remedy on behalf of the Controller Affiliate, and (ii) the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall exercise any such rights under this DPA not separately for each Controller Affiliate individually but in a combined manner for all of its Controller Affiliates together.
10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Each party’s and all of its Affiliates’ liability, taken together in the aggregate, arising out of or related to this DPA, and all DPAs between Controller Affiliates and Alphacloud, whether in contract, tort or under any other theory of liability, is subject to the ‘Limitation of Liability’ section of the Agreement, and any reference in such section to the liability of a party means the aggregate liability of that party and all of its Affiliates under the Agreement and all DPAs together.
