3.2 Customer will, in its use of the Services, process Customer Personal Data in accordance with the requirements of Data Protection Laws and Regulations. Customer will have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, and legality of Customer Personal Data and the means by which Customer acquired Customer Personal Data.
3.3 Customer acknowledges that it is responsible for properly implementing access and use controls and configuring certain features and functionalities of Skytap that Customer may elect to use and in such manner that Customer deems adequate to maintain appropriate security, protection, deletion, and backup of Customer Personal Data.
4.1 Skytap will implement and maintain, at its cost and expense, appropriate technical and organizational measures in relation to its processing of Customer Personal Data so as to ensure a level of security in respect of Customer Personal Data processed by it is appropriate to the risks that are presented by the processing, including from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to Customer Personal Data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.
4.2 With respect to any Security Incident involving Customer Personal Data, Skytap will, in accordance with Art. 28 paragraph 3 of GDPR, provide Customer with a) a description of the security incident and the approximate amount of data subjects and datasets involved, b) name and contact of a contact person for further information, c) a description on the probable consequences of the incident, and d) a description of the measures taken in order to remedy or reduce the incident.
4.3 Skytap will take reasonably appropriate measures to ensure that its personnel processing Customer Personal Data are subject to equivalent terms protecting Customer Personal Data, including training specific to the GDPR requirements.
5.1 Customer authorizes Skytap to engage another entity (a “Sub-Processor”) to perform specific processing activities in respect to the Customer Personal Data.
5.2 To receive Skytap’s current list of Sub-Processors and/or notifications of changed or new Sub-Processors, Customers may email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Subscribe”. Once Customer is subscribed, Skytap will provide subscriber with advance notice of any changed or new Sub-Processors in connection with the provision of the applicable Services.
5.3 Where and to the extent Customer is established with the European Economic Area, Switzerland, or where otherwise required by Data Protection Laws and Regulations applicable to Customer, Customer may reasonably object to the use of a new Sub-Processor (e.g., if making Customer Personal Data available to the Sub-Processor may violate applicable Data Protection Law or weaken the protections for such Customer Personal Data) by providing written notification to Skytap within 10 days of receiving notice per Section 5.2 above. Customer must include the reasonable grounds for the objection. In the event Customer objects to a new Sub-Processor, Skytap will use commercially reasonable efforts to make available to Customer a change in the Services or recommend a commercially reasonable change to Customer’s configuration or use of the Services, to avoid Processing of Customer Personal Data by the objected-to new Sub-Processor without unreasonably burdening Customer. If Skytap is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period of time, either party may terminate the Services which cannot be provided by Skytap without the use of the objected-to new Sub-Processor. Such terminations must be made in writing to Skytap. Skytap will refund Customer a prorated portion of pre-paid charges for remainder of the term of such Order Form(s) following the effective date of termination.
5.4 Skytap will remain liable to the Customer for the Sub-Processor’s performance, as well as for any acts or omissions of the Sub-Processor regarding its processing of Customer Personal Data, to the same extent Skytap would be liable if performing the Services of the Sub-Processor directly under the terms of this Addendum.
6. Other Obligations
6.1 Skytap will forward to the Customer and otherwise cooperate with and assist the Customer with any requests received from Data Subjects of any Customer Personal Data under GDPR (i.e., “Data Subject Access Request”) or Consumers under CCPA (e.g., “Right to Know”) of any Regulated Data (generally referred to together in this Section 5 as, “Regulated Data Access Request”. Business Provider will specifically perform the following.
6.2 Skytap will provide reasonable assistance, information and cooperation to the Customer to ensure compliance with the Customer’s obligations under Data Protection Legislation in relation to the processing of Customer Personal Data under the Agreement and this Addendum. This includes assistance with any data protection impact assessments and consultations with (or notifications to) relevant data protection regulators.
6.3 Upon Customer’s written request at reasonable intervals, Skytap will make available to the Customer such information as is reasonably required by the Customer to demonstrate Skytap’s compliance with its obligations under Data Protection Legislation and this Addendum.
6.4 Skytap will permit audits at reasonable intervals conducted by the Customer, or another auditor mandated by the Customer, solely for demonstrating Skytap’s compliance with its obligations under Data Protection Legislation and this Data Protection Schedule. This will be subject to the Customer giving Skytap reasonable prior notice of such audit and/or inspection and ensuring that any auditor is subject to binding obligations of confidentiality, is not a competitor of Skytap, and that such audit or inspection is undertaken so as to cause minimal disruption to Skytap’s business.
6.5 Skytap will, without undue delay, at the Customer’s request, either securely delete or return all the Customer Personal Data to the Customer at the end of the Agreement and this Addendum, or if earlier, as soon as processing by Skytap of any Customer Personal Data is no longer required for Skytap’s performance of its obligations under the Agreement, and securely delete existing copies (unless retention of any data is required by applicable law).
7. International Data Transfers
7.1 If Customer is established with the European Economic Area, Switzerland, or where otherwise required by Data Protection Laws and Regulations, Customer acknowledges that Skytap will transfer Customer Personal Data outside of the EEA for Processing. Skytap is certified and registered under Privacy Shield. However, until a version of Privacy Shield is agreed, reinstated and legally applicable under Data Protection Laws again, Section 7.2 explains how Skytap will comply with Data Protection Laws and Regulations related to International Data Transfers.
7.2 Skytap will enter into the standard Controller-To-Processor EU Model Clauses in the event where Skytap is no longer (i) entitled to rely on its registration and certification or (ii) registered and certified under Privacy Shield and Customer Personal Data is processed outside the EU; or in countries which do not ensure adequate level of data protection. In the event of any inconsistency between the Addendum and the Controller-To-Processor EU Model Clauses, the Controller-To-Processor EU Model Clauses will override the Addendum, to the extent terms in both are in conflict. If the Controller-To-Processor EU Model Clauses apply, the parties agree that the standard Controller-To-Processor EU Model Clauses may be amended from time to time, to the extent that they relate to a Restricted Transfer which is subject to the Data Protection Laws of a given country or territory, to reflect (to the extent possible without material uncertainty as to the result) any change (including any replacement) made in accordance with those Data Protection Laws (iii) by the Commission to or of the equivalent contractual clauses approved by the Commission under Data Protection Legislation (in the case of the Data Protection laws of the European Union or a Member State); or (iv) by an equivalent competent authority to or of any equivalent contractual clauses approved by it or by another competent authority under another Data Protection Law (otherwise). As a Customer, you may request Skytap arrange to execute the applicable Model Clauses by sending an email to skytapDPA@skytap.com.

Skytap manages the application infrastructure it provisions. The Customer is responsible for provisioning and managing additional user accounts for their Skytap Cloud instance, as well as the workloads running on the cloud infrastructure provided by Skytap, i.e., Skytap does not manage the Customer’s workloads, nor any data stored within them.
2) Duration of Processing:
Processing of the Customer Personal Data by Skytap will be for the term of the Agreement of for provision of the Services, provided that Customer Personal Data will not be Processed for longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected or is being Processed (except where a statutory exception applies).

As the Customer is responsible for provisioning and managing additional user accounts for their Skytap Cloud instance, as well as the workloads running on the cloud infrastructure provided by Skytap, i.e., Skytap does not manage the Customer’s workloads, nor any data stored within them. As Skytap does not have visibility into and relies on the Customer for any access to such workloads and data processed therein, Skytap does not know what Personal Data is in scope.
