- Authorized Personnel
- Sysdig shall ensure that all Authorized Personnel are made aware of the confidential nature of Personal Data and have executed confidentiality agreements or are otherwise subject to binding duties of confidentiality that prohibit them from disclosing or otherwise processing, any Personal Data except in accordance with the Instructions and their obligations in connection with the Services.
- Sysdig shall take commercially reasonable steps to ensurethat Authorized Personnel have received data privacy security and training appropriate to the nature of their processing of Personal Data and the requirements of Applicable Privacy Laws.
- Sysdig Subprocessors
- Customer hereby provides Sysdig with general written authorization to engage Subprocessors to process (including transfer)Personal Data in connection with the Services in accordance with this Section 4.
- A list of Sysdig’s current Subprocessors (the “Subprocessor List”) is available at https://go.sysdig.com/sysdig-subprocessors (such URL may be updated by Sysdig from time to time upon notice to Customer). These Subprocessors will be deemed authorized by Customer to process Personal Data in connection with this DPA. At least ten (10) days before enabling any new Subprocessor to access or participate in the processing of Personal Data, Sysdig will add such Subprocessor to the Subprocessor List and notify Customer of that update. Customer may object to such an engagement on reasonable data protection grounds by providing notice to Sysdig within ten (10) days of receipt of the aforementioned notice from Sysdig.
- If Customer objects to an engagement in accordance with Section 4.2, Sysdig shall provide Customer with a written description of commercially reasonable alternative(s), if any, to such engagement. If Sysdig, in its sole discretion, cannot reasonably provide any such alternative(s), or if Customer does not agree to any such alternative(s) if provided, either party may terminate the impacted Services. Alternatively, Customer’s continued use of the Service following Customer’s refusal of the proffered alternative will constitute Customer’s consent for such a change to the Subprocessor List. Termination shall not relieve Customer of any fees owed to Sysdig under the Agreement.
- If Customer does not object to the engagement of a third party in accordance with Section 4.2, that third party will be deemed an authorized Subprocessor for the purposes of this DPA.
- Sysdig shall ensure that each Subprocessor is subject to obligations regarding the processing of Personal Data that are substantially similar to those which Sysdig is subject under this DPA.
- Sysdig shall be liable to Customer for any breach of this DPA caused by the acts or omissions of its Subprocessors.
- If Customer and Sysdig have entered into the Standard Contractual Clauses as described in Section 6 (Transfers of Personal Data the above authorizations will constitute Customer’s prior written consent to the subcontracting by Sysdig of the processing of Personal Data if such consent is required under the Standard Contractual Clauses.
- Security of Personal Data
- 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 natural persons, Sysdig shall maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures designed to (i) ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk presented by the processing of the Personal Data; and (ii) protect the Personal Data from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. Such technical and organizational measures shall include measures equal to or exceeding the measures set forth in Exhibit B of this DPA.
- Transfers of Personal Data
- Customer acknowledges and agrees that Sysdig and its Subprocessors may process (including transfer) Personal Data in the United States, the European Economic Area and in any other location where Sysdig or a Sysdig Subprocessor maintains data processing operations, as set forth in the Subprocessor List. Sysdig will at all times provide an adequate level of protection for the Personal Data, in accordance with the requirements of Applicable Privacy Laws and, to the extent applicable, the requirements below.
- In connection with the provision of the Services to Customer, Sysdig may (and may authorize its Subprocessors to) receive from, process within, or transfer Personal Data to, any Third Country provided that Sysdig and its Subprocessors take measures to adequately protect such data consistent with Applicable Privacy Laws.Such measures may include to the extent available and applicable under such laws:
- The parties’ agreement to enter into and comply with the Standard Contractual Clauses which are hereby incorporated into this DPA and as further set forth in Exhibit C.In particular, transfers of Personal Data from the European Union, European Economic Area, Switzerland or the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (“UK”) by Customer to Sysdig or Sysdig to Customer in Third Countries are subject to the Standard Contractual Clauses, Module Two (“Controller to Processor”), and Module Three (“Processor to Processor”). The information required for the purposes of the SCCs is provided in Exhibit C to this DPA;
- Processing in compliance with Binding Corporate Rules in accordance with Applicable Privacy Laws; or
- Implementing any other data transfer mechanisms or certifications approved under Applicable Privacy Laws, including, as applicable, any approved successor or replacement to the EU–US Privacy Shield framework and/or the Swiss–US Privacy Shield framework.
To the extent that any substitute or additional appropriate safeguards or transfer mechanisms under Applicable Privacy Laws are required to transfer data to a Third Country, the parties agree to implement the same as soon as practicable and document such requirements for implementation in an attachment to this DPA.
- The Parties acknowledge and agree that they have, taking into account, without limitation, the Personal Data and Third Countries in scope, the relevant security measures under this DPA and the relevant parties participating in the processing of such Personal Data, conducted an assessment of the appropriateness of the relevant transfer mechanism adopted hereunder and have determined that such transfer mechanism is appropriately designed to ensure Personal Data transferred in accordance with this DPA is afforded a level of protection in the destination country that is essentially equivalent to that guaranteed under the Applicable Privacy Laws.
- Cooperation; Audit and Records Requests
- Sysdig shall, to the extent permitted by law, promptly notify Customer following the receipt and verification of a Data Subject Request or shall otherwise advise the Data Subject to submit their Data Subject Request to Customer directly. In either case, Customer will be responsible for responding to such request.
- At the request of Customer and taking into account the nature of the processing applicable to any Data Subject Request, Sysdig shall apply appropriate technical and organizational measures to enable Customer to comply with Customer’s obligation to respond to such Data Subject Request and/or in demonstrating such compliance provided that (i) Customer is itself unable to respond or fulfill the request without Sysdig’s assistance and (ii) Sysdig is able to do so in accordance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Customer shall be responsible to the extent legally permitted for any costs and expenses arising from any such assistance by Sysdig.
- If Sysdig receives a subpoena, court order, warrant or other legal demand from a third party (including law enforcement or other public or judicial authorities) seeking the disclosure of Personal Data, Sysdig shall, legally permitting, promptly notify Customer in writing of such request. Sysdig shall only comply with such third-party request where Sysdig has determined it is legally required to do so, in which case Sysdig shall provide reasonable cooperation to Customer, at Customer’s expense, if Customer wishes to limit, challenge or protect against such disclosure, to the extent permitted by applicable laws.
- Sysdig shall, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to Sysdig provide Customer with reasonable cooperation and assistance for Customer to comply with its obligations under the Applicable Privacy Laws, including any obligations to conduct a data protection impact assessment, respond to any inquiry from or consult with any Supervisory Authority or demonstrate compliance with Applicable Privacy Law. The obligations hereunder shall only apply where required of Sysdig by Applicable Privacy Law and provided that Customer does not otherwise have access to the relevant information or functionality being requested. Customer shall be responsible to the extent legally permitted for any costs and expenses arising from any such assistance by Sysdig.
- Upon Customer’s request and no more than once per calendar year, Sysdig shall make available for Customer’s review copies of certifications or reports demonstrating Sysdig’s compliance with Applicable Privacy Laws as they relate to Sysdig’s processing of the Personal Data hereunder. Solely where and to the extent (i) required by Applicable Privacy Laws and (ii) such copies of certifications or reports are insufficient to demonstrate Sysdig’s compliance with Applicable Privacy Laws as it relates to Sysdig’s processing of the Personal Data hereunder, Sysdig shall make available to the Customer additional information necessary to demonstrate compliance with such obligations and allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, of those data processing facilities within Sysdig’s control conducted by the Customer or another auditor mandated by Customer.
- Any audit or inspection authorized by Section 7.5 will occur only after Customer has provided Sysdig with at least 60 days’ prior written notice and during a mutually agreed upon date, time, and location. Audits must not unreasonably interfere with Sysdig’s business or operations, and the scope of such audit will be subject to Sysdig’s reasonable pre-approval. Individuals responsible for conducting such audit shall be subject to a contract of confidentiality with Sysdig. The work required by Sysdig to participate in any audit may result in additional fees (at a mutually agreed upon hourly rate) to be paid by the Customer, unless otherwise agreed in writing prior to the commencement of such audit. To ensure that Sysdig complies with Applicable Privacy Laws and its contractual obligations regarding data privacy and security, Customer agrees that Sysdig is not required to provide Customer with access to Sysdig’s systems or information in a manner that may compromise the security, privacy, or confidentiality of Sysdig’s other customers’ confidential or proprietary information.
- Any information disclosed pursuant to this Section 7 will be deemed Sysdig’s Confidential Information.
- Personal Data Breach
- After becoming aware of a Personal Data Breach, Sysdig shall, without undue delay, inform Customer of the Personal Data Breach and take such steps as Sysdig, in its sole discretion, deems necessary and reasonable to remediate such Personal Data Breach (to the extent that remediation is within Sysdig’s reasonable control).
- Sysdig shall, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information reasonablyavailable to Sysdig: (a)provide Customer with reasonable cooperation and assistance necessary for Customer to comply with its obligations under Applicable Privacy Laws with respect to notifying relevant regulators and/or Data Subjects affected by such Personal Data Breach; and (b) provide Customer with information in Sysdig’s reasonable control concerning the details of the Personal Data Breach including, as applicable, the nature of the Personal Data Breach, the categories and approximate numbers of Data Subjects and Personal Data records concerned, and the likely consequences of the Personal Data Breach.
- The obligations described in this Section 8 shall not apply in the event that a Personal Data Breach results from the actions or omissions of Customer. In no event will Sysdig’s cooperation or obligation to report or respond to a Personal Data Breach under this Section be construed as an acknowledgement by Sysdig of any fault or liability with respect to the Personal Data Breach.
- Unless prohibited by an applicable statute or court order, Customer will notify Sysdig of any third-party legal process relating to any PersonalData Breach, including, but not limited to, any legal process initiated by any governmental entity.
- All notices to Customer under this DPA shall be sent by email and directed to the Customer’s designated system administrator for the Services and the “legal and privacy notices” contact if provided by Customer in conjunction with the Agreement. Customer may update these contacts at any time by emailing [email protected].
- The liability of Sysdig and its respective employees, directors, officers, affiliates, successors, and assigns (the “Sysdig Parties”), arising out of or related to this DPA, whether in contract, tort, or other theory of liability, shall be subject to the “Limitation of Liability” and “Exclusions of Liability” sections (or their equivalent sections) of the Agreement, and any reference in such section to the liability of Sysdig or the Sysdig Parties means the aggregate liability of the Sysdig Parties under the Agreement and this DPA together.
- This DPA is without prejudice to the rights and obligations of the parties under the Agreement which will continue to have full force and effect. In the event of any conflict between the terms of this DPA and the terms of the Agreement, the terms of this DPA will prevail. In the event of any conflict between the terms of this DPA and the Standard Contractual Clauses then, only insofar as the Standard Contractual Clauses apply, the Standard Contractual Clauses will prevail.
- Unless otherwise so required under this DPA or Applicable Privacy Law, Customer and Sysdig each agree that the dispute resolution provisions of the Agreement (including governing law and venue) apply to this DPA.
