Processor shall ensure that persons authorized by it to process the Personal Data are bound by enforceable confidentiality obligations not to disclose it.
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 the Data Subjects, Processor shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures (to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk) supported by a written Information Security Management System in such a manner that the Processing of Personal Data will meet the requirements of the Applicable Data Protection Laws and ensure the protection of the rights of each Data Subject. Such measures shall include the Security Measures.

Processor shall not be obliged to make any refund of any sums paid under the BugProve Main Agreement.
For the purposes of the SCCs (including Clause 9(c) of the SCCs), Controller acknowledges that Processor may be restricted from disclosing to Controller its contract terms with Sub-processors due to confidentiality obligations.
Processor shall ensure each Sub-processor is appointed under a binding written contract conferring a materially similar level of obligation on the Sub-processor in relation to protection of the Personal Data as under this DPA (including those relating to sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures) and shall be responsible for ensuring each such Sub-processor complies with all such obligations.

Processor shall make available to Controller all information reasonably necessary to demonstrate compliance with this DPA and shall allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted by Controller, or another auditor mandated by Controller on 10 working days' notice and mutual agreement of a suitable scope and agenda.
Processor shall immediately inform Controller if it becomes aware that Controller's processing instructions infringe GDPR or UK GDPR (as applicable) but without obligation to actively monitor Controller's compliance with them.
The Controller acknowledges and agrees that the Processor may transfer, access and process Personal Data on a global basis as necessary to provide the BugProve service in accordance with the BugProve Main Agreement. The Processor will make any such transfers in compliance with Applicable Data Protection Laws. This paragraph forms part of Controller's instructions to Processor.
Solely to extent required to ensure Processor's Processing of Personal Data complies with any international transfer rules set out in Applicable Data Protection Laws, in the event that the transfer of Personal Data from Controller to Processor involves a transfer of Personal Data, that is subject to GDPR or UK GDPR, outside of an Adequate Territory, the SCCs shall be incorporated by reference and form an integral part of this DPA -- with Controller as "data exporter" and Processor as "data importer" -- in the following manner:
In relation to any such transfer made subject to the EU GDPR, for the purposes of the SCCs: (i) Module Two (controller to processor) terms shall apply and the module one, three and four terms shall be deleted; (ii) in Clause 9, Option 2 shall apply and the "time period" shall be 14 days (iii) in Clause 11, the optional language shall not apply; (iv) in Clause 17 (Option 1) the SCCs shall be governed by Irish law; (v) in Clause 18(b), disputes shall be resolved before the courts of Ireland; (vi) Annex 1 and 3 of the SCCs shall be populated with the information set out in this DPA; and (vii) Annex 2 of the SCCs shall be deemed to refer to the Security Measures.
In relation to any such transfer made subject to the UK GDPR, the SCCs shall apply as varied by the UK Transfer Addendum -- for which purpose, the parties agree: (i) Tables 1, 2 and 3 to the UK Transfer Addendum are deemed populated with the corresponding details and selections described in paragraph 13.1 above; (ii) Table 4 to the UK Transfer Addendum is completed by only 'Importer' being selected; (iii) to be bound by the UK Mandatory Clauses; and (iv) to the presentation of information required by 'Part 1: Tables' of the UK Transfer Addendum in the manner determined by this paragraph 13.2 (as permitted by Section 17 of the UK Mandatory Clauses).
To the extent that Processor makes an onward transfer of the Personal Data to a third party (including any entity in Processor's group of companies, or a Sub-processor), to a country other than an Adequate Territory or the country in which the Personal Data was first processed by Processor, it shall take such measures as may be necessary to ensure that the transfer is made in compliance with Applicable Data Protection Laws. Such measures may include (as necessary and applicable, and without limitation) transferring the Personal Data to a recipient that has a contract with Processor that ensures the Personal Data will be protected to the standard required by Applicable Data Protection Laws.
Processor shall notify Controller without undue delay in writing of any request with respect to Personal Data received directly from a Data Subject. Processor shall co-operate with Controller in fulfilling, or responding to, such request.
Processor shall to the extent required by Applicable Data Protection Laws keep a written record of the processing of Personal Data it carries out under this DPA.
In the event that there is a confirmed personal data breach (as defined in GDPR) in respect of the Personal Data provided by Controller, Processor shall without undue delay (and in any event within 72 hours of confirming such breach) notify Controller of that data breach in writing including the following details:
the nature of the personal data breach including the categories and approximate number of Data Subjects concerned and the categories and approximate number of Personal Data records concerned;
the likely consequences of the personal data breach; and
the measures which Processor proposes to take to remediate the cause of the breach.
In the event of a personal data breach in respect of the Personal Data provided by Controller, Processor shall provide Controller with such reasonable cooperation and assistance with managing that personal data breach as may be agreed between the parties, acting in good faith.
In the event that Controller notifies Processor that it should cease processing the Personal Data or any part of the Personal Data, including, without limitation, the Personal Data of an individual Data Subject, Processor shall without undue delay return such Personal Data to Controller and shall cease processing that Personal Data or part of the Personal Data. Controller acknowledges and agrees that Processor shall not have any liability under the remainder of the Main Agreement for any failure to provide the Services which results from such cessation.
In the event that Processor receives a request directly from an individual Data Subject relating to Personal Data, it shall promptly forward that request onto Controller.
In the event Processor becomes subject to a request from a public authority to disclose any Personal Data, Processor shall review the legality of such a request prior to acceding to it. To the extent permitted by law, Processor shall promptly notify Controller in writing of any such request. Processor shall only comply with such requests in the event that it reasonably considers that it is lawfully compelled to do so. Processor shall in respect of any such request (i) only disclose the minimum amount of Personal Data required, and (ii) retain evidence that any disclosure of Personal Data to public authorities was made in accordance with the restrictions under this paragraph, and (to the extent permitted by law) make such evidence available to Controller promptly upon request.
