Scope and Roles. This DPA applies when Personal Data is Processed by Kickserv as part of Kickserv’s provision of the Service. In this context and for the purposes of the GDPR, Customer is the data controller and Kickserv is the data processor.  Subject Matter, Duration, Nature and Purpose of Processing. Kickserv processes Customer’s Personal Data as part of providing Customer with the Service, pursuant to the specifications and for the duration under the terms of the Subscription Agreement. Type of Personal Data and Categories of Data Subjects. In delivering the Service, Kickserv will process the types of Personal Data that Customer and its authorized users upload to the Service. Such Personal Data may include, depending on Customer’s use of the Service, name (first and last), contact information (e.g., postal address (personal, business, and/or shipping), telephone number, email address), geo location data, financial information, credit or debit card number, consumer report information, device-level data and information on a Data Subject’s use of Customer’s services, such as the type of services, date and time of use and cost and reporting information.  Instructions for Kickserv’s Processing of Personal Data. Kickserv will only Process Personal Data on behalf of and in accordance with Customer’s instructions. Customer instructs Kickserv to Process Personal Data for the following purposes: (i) Processing related to the Service in accordance with the terms of the Subscription Agreement; and (ii) Processing to comply with other reasonable instructions provided by Customer where such instructions are consistent with the terms of the Subscription Agreement. Customer undertakes to provide Kickserv with lawful instructions only. Kickserv will inform Customer immediately, if in Kickserv's opinion an instruction infringes any provision under the GDPRand will be under no obligation to follow such instruction, until the matter is resolved in good-faith between the parties. As required under the GDPR, Customer will provide all necessary notices to relevant Data Subjects and secure all necessary permissions and consents from them, for the Processing of Personal Data by Kickserv pursuant to this DPA.


Taking into account the nature of the Processing, Kickserv will assist Customer by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fufillment of Customer's obligation to respond to requests for exercising the Data Subjects' rights under the GDPR. Kickserv will further assist Customer in ensuring compliance with Customer's obligations in connection with the security of Processing, notification of a Personal Data Breach to supervisory authorities and affected Data Subjects, Customer's data protection impact assessments and Customer's prior consultation with supervisory authorities, in relation to Kickserv's Processing of Personal Data under this DPA. Except for negligible costs, Customer will reimburse Kickserv with costs and expenses incurred by Kickserv in connection with the provision of assistance Customer under this DPA.


Limitation of Access. Kickserv will ensure that Kickserv’s access to Personal Data is limited to those personnel who require such access to perform the Services pursuant to the Subscription Agreement. Confidentiality.

Kickserv will ensure that its personnel engaged in the Processing of Personal Data are informed of the confidential nature of the Personal Data, have received appropriate training in their responsibilities, and have executed written confidentiality agreements. Kickserv will ensure that such confidentiality agreements survive the termination of the employment or engagement of its personnel.


Kickserv may engage third-party service providers to process Personal Data on behalf of Customer (“Other Processors”). Customer hereby provides Kickserv with a general authorization to engage the Other Processors listed in Exhibit A to this Agreement.

All Other Processors have entered into written agreements with Kickserv that bind them by substantially the same material obligations under this DPA. Where an Other Processor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations in connection with the Processing of Personal Data under this DPA, Kickserv will remain fully liable to Customer for the performance of that Other Processor's obligations. Kickserv may engage with a new Other Processor (“New Processor”) to Process Customer Personal Data on Customer's behalf. Customer may object to the Processing of Customer'sPersonal Data by the New Processor, for reasonable and explained grounds, within five (5) business days following Kickserv's written notice to Customer of the intended engagement with the New Processor. If Customer timely sends Kickserv a written objection notice, the parties will make a good-faith effort to resolve Customer's objection. In the absence of a resolution, Kickserv will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide Customer with the same level of Service, without using the New Processor to Process Customer's Personal Data.


1.1. Subject to this Section 6, Customer consents to transfers of Personal Data to Kickserv, Kickserv’s Affiliates and their respective Sub-processors based in countries outside the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). Where Kickserv transfers Personal Data, either directly or via onward transfer, from the EEA to a recipient outside the EEA in a country not recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data (“Third Country Recipient”), such transfer shall be covered by a framework recognized by the relevant authorities or courts as providing an adequate level of protection for Personal Data, including but not limited to Standard Contractual Clauses, binding corporate rules or the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework (each a “Data Transfer Mechanism”).

1.2. If Kickserv elects to apply the Standard Contractual Clauses pursuant to Section 6.1: if required by Kickserv, Customer shall sign a copy of the Standard Contractual Clauses and take such further action as is required by applicable law to ensure that the Standard Contractual Clauses are legally valid; if the Processing under the Standard Contractual Clauses can subsequently be performed under an alternative Data Transfer Mechanism, then the Standard Contractual Clauses shall automatically terminate effective as of the date that such alternative Data Transfer Mechanism takes effect in respect of such Processing, and Customer shall execute such documents or acknowledgements as Kickserv may reasonably request to evidence such termination; the parties agree to amend the Standard Contractual Clauses if required in accordance with a relevant European Commission decision or Data Protection Laws; the parties agree that the prior written consent to the engagement of sub-processors required by Clause 5(h) of the Standard Contractual Clauses has been given pursuant to clause 10.1 of this DPA; the parties agree that Section 9 of this DPA shall satisfy the audit requirements of the Standard Contractual Clauses applied to a Data Importer (as defined in the GDPR) under Clause 5(f) and to any sub-processors under Clause 11 and Clause 12.


Controls. Kickserv will maintain administrative, physical and technical safeguards for the protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of Customer's Personal Data, pursuant to the technical and organizational measures set forth in Exhibit B. Kickserv regularly monitors compliance with these safeguards. Kickserv will not materially decrease the overall security of the Service during the term of providing the Service to the Customer under the Subscription Agreement.

Where, and in so far as, it is not possible to provide the information at the same time, the information may be provided in phases without undue further delay. Kickserv will work diligently, pursuant to its incident management policies and procedures to promptly identify and remediate the cause of the Personal Data Breach and will inform Customer accordingly.  Kickserv's liability for a Personal Data Breach toward Customer and any third party is subject to the following limitations: (a) the Personal Data Breach is a result of a breach of Kickserv's information security obligations under this DPA; and (b) the Personal Data Breach is not caused by: (i) acts or omissions of Customer, or any person acting on behalf of or jointly with Customer (collectively "Customer Representatives"); (ii) Customer Representatives' instructions to Kickserv; (iii) a willful, deliberate or malicious conduct by a third party; or (iv) acts of God or force major, including, without limitation, acts of war, terror, state-supported attacks, acts of state or governmental action prohibiting or impeding Kickserv from performing its information security obligations under the Agreement and natural and man-made disasters.


Kickserv will make available to Customer all information necessary for Customer to demonstrate compliance with the obligations laid down under Article 28 to the GDPR in relation to the Processing of Personal Data under this DPA by Kickserv and its Other Processors.

If Kickserv does not receive a request in writing to return Customer’s Personal Data, Kickserv will delete all such Personal Data within 30 days following the end of the provision of Services relating to Processing of Customer's Personal Data.

The parties agree to communicate regularly about any open issues or process problems that require resolution. The parties will attempt in good faith to resolve any dispute related to this DPA as a precondition to commence legal proceedings, first by direct communications between the persons responsible for administering this DPA and next by negotiation between executives with authority to settle the controversy. Either party may give the other party a written notice of any dispute not resolved in the normal course of business. Within two (2) business days after delivery of the notice, the receiving party will submit to the other party a written response. The notice and the response will include a statement of eachparty’s position and a summary of arguments supporting that position and the name and title of the executive who will represent that party. Within five (5) business days after delivery of the disputing party’s notice, the executives of both parties will meet at a mutually acceptable time and place, including by phone, and thereafter as often as they reasonably deem necessary, to resolve the dispute. All reasonable requests for information made by one party to the other will be honored. All negotiations pursuant to this clause are confidential and will be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence.
