- In the event that any data subject exercises its rights under applicable Data Protection Legislation against You, We shall use reasonable commercial efforts to assist You in fulfilling Your obligations as controller and provide You with a suitable response without undue delay (and in any event within 5 days) following written request from You provided that We may: (a) extend such time period (provided always that We shall use all reasonable endeavours to provide such assistance within a time period to enable You to comply with Your obligations under applicable Data Protection Legislation); and/or (b) charge You on a time and materials basis in the event that We consider, in Our reasonable discretion, that such assistance is onerous, complex, frequent or time consuming.

- Upon discovering We have experienced a Personal Data Breach in respect of Your personal data We shall notify You without undue delay and shall assist You to the extent reasonably necessary in connection with mitigation of the impact of the Personal Data Breach and any notification to the applicable supervisory authority and data subjects, considering the nature of processing and the information available to Us.
- In the event that You consider that the processing of personal data performed pursuant to the Agreement requires a privacy impact assessment or prior consultation with a supervisory authority to be undertaken, following written request from You, We shall use reasonable commercial endeavours to provide relevant information and assistance to You to facilitate such privacy impact assessment or prior consultation. We may charge You for such assistance on a time and materials basis. We shall provide You with a data protection impact assessment upon request, and prior consultations with supervisory authorities, which are required by Article 35 or 36 of the GDPR, in each case solely in relation to the processing of Your personal data by Us.
- Following the earlier of termination or expiry of the Agreement (the “End Date”), Your instruction is for Us to delete Your personal data held by Us.

We shall not be obliged to process any of Your personal data in relation to such instructions until You notify Us that Your instructions are non-infringing or amend Your instructions to make them non- infringing and notify Us accordingly. Further, where We request the same, You shall sign a waiver provided by Us which will absolve Us of any liability associated with Us following Your processing instruction.
- Without prejudice to any other provision in the Agreement which may apply, You shall for the Licence Term have in place and maintain any and all appropriate consents from the relevant data subjects and or an appropriate lawful basis for processing the personal data of the data subjects affected by the Agreement.
- We shall for the Licence Term use reasonable endeavours to assist You in meeting Your obligations under Articles 32 to 36 (inclusive).
- Where You consider it necessary to amend this Data Processor Agreement as a result of any changes in law relating to the protection or treatment of personal data, You shall notify Us of the same. Thereafter the parties shall act reasonably and in good faith in agreeing appropriate amendments to this Data Processor Agreement to ensure compliance with such law.
- Some of Our Dext Products may have an API, allowing the transfer of data (which may include personal data) to and from a Dext Product to a third-party product (“Third-Party API”) or a separate Dext Product (only where You have a licence to this separate Dext Product will the API be turned on). Whether a Third-Party API is turned on or off is at Your discretion, where it is turned on, You are authorising Us to share the relevant data through the Third-Party API and where relevant, receive data from the Third-Party API for input into the Dext Product. We are not liable or responsible for the quality or accuracy of data shared to Us via a Third-Party API. Nor are We liable for what happens to the data once sent outbound via a Third-Party API (the “Transferred API Data”). For the avoidance of doubt, the Transferred API Data will be governed by the contract held between You and the relevant third-party.
