For purposes of this Schedule, “Customer Data” shall mean: (i) any information provided by Customer relating to an identified or identifiable individual, including, but not limited to, social security number or other unique identifier, health or medical information, credit or debit card numbers, bank account numbers or other financial information, driver’s license numbers, and other types of sensitive personal information; (ii) all Customer information defined as “Confidential” under the Agreement; and (iii) any structured or unstructured information (including, without limitation, text, images, data files, and software) provided by Customer for capture, storage, analysis, processing, extraction, retrieval, management, and/or distribution, including any information that can be generated or derived from such information provided by Customer. For the avoidance of doubt, information related to Customer’s customers, vendors, employees or other third parties provided by Customer to Contractor and described in sections (i) through (iii) above, shall also be considered Customer Data for purposes of this Schedule.

1.2 Control of Customer Data

Customer Data shall be and remain under the ownership and control of Customer for purposes of all applicable laws, including, but not limited to, data privacy, trans-border data transfer, intellectual property and export control laws, rules and regulations (“Data Protection Laws”). Contractor shall only process Customer Data on documented instructions from Customer and in accordance with the specified duration, purpose, type and categories of data and data subjects as set out in the Agreement. Upon Customer’s request, Contractor shall promptly retrieve and deliver to Customer a copy of all Customer Data, or such portions as may be specified by Customer, under Contractor’s control or in its possession, in an industry-standard format and on the media reasonably requested by Customer. At any time, Customer may request, in writing, that Contractor destroy or erase all copies of Customer Data under Contractor’s control or in its possession, and Contractor shall comply with all such requests and certify the same in writing. Under no circumstances shall Contractor withhold any Customer Data and Contractor shall not (and shall not permit any third party to) possess or assert any lien, encumbrance or other interest against or to any Customer Data.

Contractor will: (i) not collect, use or disclose any Customer Data except solely as necessary to carry out its obligations under the Agreement and this Schedule; (ii) hold all Customer Data in trust and confidence and not disclose such information to any third party, or use (directly or indirectly) any Customer Data for its own benefit or the benefit of others, unless authorized by the Agreement or this Schedule; and (iii) only disclose Customer Data to its employees on a “need to know” basis for the sole purpose of complying with Contractor’s obligations under the Agreement and this Schedule. Contractor shall ensure the reliability of any employee who may have access to the Customer Data to comply with Contractor’s obligations under the Agreement and this Schedule, and that all such individuals are subject to confidentiality undertakings or professional or statutory obligations of confidentiality no less onerous that those contained in the Agreement and this Schedule.

1.4 Security Requirements

Contractor shall have a written comprehensive security program that protects Customer Data and includes industry-standard best practices in administrative, technical, procedural and physical controls, policies, procedures and systems necessary to protect all Customer Data from threats or hazards: (i) to the privacy, confidentiality or integrity of the information; (ii) from unauthorized or unauthenticated access to the information; (iii) from unauthorized disclosure, destruction, loss or alteration; and (iv) from viruses, worms and other malicious code. Contractor shall not (and shall not permit any third party to) use any open source software in a manner that subjects Customer Data to terms which are inconsistent with or additional to the terms stated in the Agreement or this Schedule. Contractor agrees to encrypt any electronic transmission and storage of Customer Data and any backup data stored as part of a resumption plan. Any dedicated electronic connection (such as a business-to-business (B2B) connection) between Customer and Contractor must be reviewed and approved in writing by the Customer.

1.7 Business Resumption Plan

Contractor will develop and maintain a business resumption plan that ensures business continuity of Customer’s mission critical and business critical systems and processes and protection of Customer Data.

Contractor shall, at its expense: (i) immediately notify Customer of any actual or suspected impact to the confidentiality, integrity or availability of any Customer Data, any actual or attempted unauthorized access to Contractor’s facilities, systems or network, or any vulnerability related to Contractor’s system or their configuration (each considered a “Security Breach”); (ii) investigate such Security Breach immediately; (iii) promptly furnish to Customer full details of the Security Breach and assist Customer with its own investigation; (iv) take steps to mitigate the effects and minimize the damage resulting from the Security Breach; and (v) make necessary changes to minimize the likelihood that such a Security Breach will reoccur. Contractor will pay for or reimburse Customer for all reasonable costs, losses, expenses and penalties related to a Security Breach, including without limitation, Customer’s costs of providing notices and credit monitoring.

Contractor will not disclose Customer Data to any third parties without Customer’s prior written authorization. To the extent permitted by Customer, if Contractor discloses Customer Data to any third party, Contractor will enter into a written agreement with such third party containing confidentiality, privacy and data security provisions no less stringent than those contained in the Agreement and this Schedule. Contractor will remain liable for the actions or omissions of any third parties to the same extent as if such obligations were performed by Contractor.

Contractor and Customer shall cooperate in any regulatory investigation or in any internal investigation by either party arising from the Schedule. In addition, both parties shall cooperate in responding to any inquiry by an individual relating to the individual’s personal information.
