    1.3 This Schedule is intended to be legally binding and shall prevail over all other agreements, arrangements and understandings between the Parties relating to the Data Sharing, whether made before or after the date of this Schedule and notwithstanding any wording to the contrary in such agreements, arrangements and understandings between the Parties.

    1.4 In case of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions of this Schedule and the main terms of the Agreement, the provisions contained in this Schedule shall prevail.

    1.5 A reference to a statute or statutory provision includes all subordinate legislation made under it from time to time, and is a reference to it as amended, extended or re-enacted from time to time (“Replacement Law”). References to terms defined in a statute or statutory provision shall be replaced with or incorporate (as the case may be) references to the equivalent terms defined in any Replacement Laws, once in force and applicable.

    1.6 To the extent that a term of this Schedule requires the performance by a party of an obligation “in accordance with Data Protection Legislation” (or similar), unless otherwise expressly agreed in this Schedule, this requires performance in accordance with the relevant requirements of such Data Protection Legislation as is in force and applicable at the time of performance (if any).

  1. PURPOSE

    2.1 In relation to the Shared Personal Data, each of the Parties agrees that it is a Data Controller.

    2.2 During the term of this Agreement, the Parties shall share with each other certain Personal Data as detailed in the Privacy Notice. The Data Sharing is necessary to support the Agreed Purposes of both Parties.

    2.3 The parties shall only use the Shared Personal Data for lawful purposes in connection with the Agreed Purpose and not process the Shared Personal Data in a way that is incompatible with the Agreed Purpose or Data Protection Legislation.

  1. DATA PROTECTION COMPLIANCE

    3.1 Each Party shall comply with all the obligations imposed on a controller under the Data Protection Legislation. Any material breach of the Data Protection Legislation by a Party in connection with the Data Sharing shall constitute a material breach of this Schedule.

    3.2 Each Party shall:

    1. process the Shared Personal Data fairly and lawfully, each of them as a Data Controller;
    2. for each Agreed Purpose, ensure that it processes the Shared Personal Data on the basis of one of the legal grounds set out in Article 6 of the GDPR (Lawfulness of Processing) or Article 9 of the GDPR (Processing of special categories of personal data) (as applicable);

    4. ensure that it has in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of Personal Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Personal Data;

    4. deal at its discretion with all Data Subject Requests and complaints that it receives directly from a Data Subject or the person making the complaint. For the avoidance of doubt, a Data Subject Request made to one Party in its capacity as Data Controller shall not oblige the other Party to disclose any Personal Data it holds independently in its capacity as a Data Controller;
    5. if legally required, inform the other Party without delay if a Data Subject requests the erasure of any Shared Personal Data. For the avoidance of doubt, where one Party is obliged to erase any Shared Personal Data, the other Party shall not be obliged to erase the same Shared Personal Data if that other Party may lawfully continue to hold and process such Shared Personal Data;
    6. provide reasonable and prompt assistance to the other Party as is necessary to enable it to comply with a Data Subject Request and/or to respond to any other queries or complaints received from Data Subjects or supervisory authorities or regulators and, in each case related to the Shared Personal Data;
    7. provide the other Party with such information as the other Party reasonably requires for maintaining the records it is required to maintain by the Data Protection Legislation; and
    8. provide the other Party with contact details of at least one employee as point of contact and responsible manager for all issues arising out of the Data Protection Legislation, including the procedures to be followed in the event of a Shared Data Breach.
  1. DATA BREACHES

    5.1 In respect of each Shared Data Breach, each Party shall:

    1. promptly notify the other Party of the Shared Data Breach;
    2. provide the other Party without undue delay (wherever possible, no later than 48 hours after becoming aware of the Shared Data Breach) with such details as the other Party reasonably requires regarding the Shared Personal Data.

    5.2 To the extent permitted by applicable laws, neither Party shall:

    1. notify a supervisory or regulatory authority of any Shared Data Breach;
    2. issue a public statement or otherwise notify any Data Subject of such Shared Data Breach,
  2. without first consulting with, and obtaining the consent (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) of, the other Party.

  1. DELETION OR RETURN OF SHARED DATA

    6.1 Neither Party shall retain or process the Shared Personal Data for longer than is necessary in connection with carrying out the Agreed Purpose.

    6.2 Notwithstanding clause 6.1, the Parties shall continue to retain Shared Personal Data in accordance with any statutory or professional retention periods applicable in their respective countries and/or industry.
