At least at two yearly intervals, SkyKick shall make available to Customer a written audit report demonstrating the former’s compliance with the Data Protection Law and this DPA. If an audit report submitted by SkyKick in accordance with the above in Customer’s opinion – acting reasonably – is insufficient to demonstrate compliance with the Data Protection Law and this DPA, SkyKick shall permit Customer or an independent, qualified third party appointed by Customer (each an “Auditing Entity”), subject to reasonable prior written notice of at least sixty (60) business days, to access to its premises, computer and other information systems, records, documents and agreements as reasonably required by the Auditing Entity to check that SkyKick is complying with its obligations under the Data Protection Law and this DPA. Any review in accordance with this paragraph 5 (i) shall not take place more than once in every twelve (12) month period and may not exceed 5 days; and (ii) shall not require the review of any third-party (including other SkyKick customers) data or the confidential information of SkyKick. Prior to a review, the Auditing Entity shall enter into such (additional) confidentiality obligations with SkyKick as may be reasonably necessary to respect the confidentiality of SkyKick’s business interests and the rights and interests of any affected third parties. The Auditing Entity shall perform any audit during normal business hours only, and shall take due care during the audit not to disturb SkyKick’s business operations and operational workflows. In the event that the audit leads to a delay in the provision of the Services, Customer and SkyKick will enter into discussions to resolve the matter as soon as possible. SkyKick’s costs relating to any audit by an Auditing Entity shall be borne by Customer. The foregoing limitations do not apply where applicable Data Protection Law prohibits this, or to audits required or undertaken by a competent authority or pursuant to an enforceable court order.
Customer authorizes SkyKick to use subcontractors to Process Personal Data in connection with the provision of Services to Customer (“Subprocessor”). As of the effective date of this DPA, the current list of Subprocessors is specified in Attachment 3. SkyKick will provide Customer (directly or via the SkyKick Partner) with notice of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of its Subprocessors, and provide Customer with the opportunity to object to such changes. If Customer does not object within five (5) days, Customer is deemed to have consented to the proposed addition or replacement. If Customer objects to any Subprocessor, SkyKick may terminate the Agreement immediately upon notice to Customer without liability. SkyKick will impose data protection obligations upon any Subprocessor that are no less protective than those included in this DPA and SkyKick shall remain liable to Customer for any breach of the obligations in this DPA by a Subprocessor in accordance with the relevant provisions in the Terms and Conditions.
7. DATA TRANSFERS
SkyKick will abide by the requirements of Data Protection Law (if any) regarding the cross-border transfer of Personal Data, including entering into such additional contractual arrangements or taking such additional measures as may be required by Data Protection Law. If Customer is based outside the United States of America, the SCCs (Module 4; processor-to-controller) apply. The governing law to the SCCs is Dutch law and the competent court is the Amsterdam District Court following proceedings in English before the Chamber for International Commercial Matters (“Netherlands Commercial Court” or “NCC District Court”), to the exclusion of the jurisdiction of any other courts. An action for interim measures, including protective measures, available under Dutch law may be brought in the NCC District Court in Summary Proceedings (CSP) in proceedings in English. Any appeals against NCC or CSP judgments will be submitted to the Amsterdam Court of Appeal’s Chamber for International Commercial Matters (“Netherlands Commercial Court of Appeal” or “NCCA”). The NCC Rules of Procedure apply. Clause 7 and the optional language of clause 11a of the SCCs do not apply. The information for Annex IA of the SCCs is set out in the Agreement (i.e. the Parties). The information for Annex IB of the SCCs, is set out in Attachment 3.
In addition, SkyKick has certified compliance under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Principles, and the commitments they entail. In light of the judgement of the Court of Justice of the EU in Case C-311/18 (Schrems II), SkyKick no longer relies on the EU-U.S. or Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as a legal basis for transfers or safeguard of Personal Data from the EU or Switzerland to the U.S. Customer authorizes SkyKick to provide a summary or a representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of this DPA to the a competent authority if requested.
8.1. Customer Affiliates. To the extent SkyKick Processes Personal Data on behalf of Customer’s Affiliates, Customer enters into this DPA on behalf of itself and as agent for its Affiliates, and references to Customer under this DPA shall include Customer and its Affiliates; provided however that the Customer is the sole entity that may enforce this DPA on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates.
