7.2        Both Parties agree that an unsuccessful Security Breach attempt will not be subject to this Section 7.

7.5        Media Company shall implement reasonable technical and organizational Security Measures to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk in respect to the Personal Data. As technical and organizational measures are subject to technological development, the Media Company is entitled to implement alternative measures provided they are at least as protected as those offered by the Security Measures and they do not fall short of the level of data protection set out by Data Protection Law.

8          Return and Deletion of Personal Data

8.1        Media Company will comply with instructions from Client to delete certain Personal Data as soon as reasonably practicable and within a maximum period of 30 days, unless Data Protection Law (or, in the case the data is not subject to Data Protection Law, applicable law) requires further storage.

9          Cross-Border Data Transfers

9.1        The Parties may, subject to this Section 9, store and process the relevant Personal Data in the European Economic Area, in addition to various locations outside of the European Economic Area. Media Company’s data storage locations are located in the United States.

9.2   Given that the Services may involve the storage and/or Processing of Personal Data which transfers such Personal Data out of the European Economic Area or Switzerland to a jurisdiction that does not have adequate Data Protection Laws, and the Data Protection Laws apply to the transfers of such data (“Transferred Personal Data”), the Parties agree that the EU Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 and available at (as amended or updated from time to time) (“Standard Contractual Clauses“) will apply and such Standard Contractual Clauses shall be incorporated by reference and form an integral part of this Addendum. Purely for the purposes of the descriptions in the Standard Contractual Clauses and only as between Client and Media Company, the Parties agree that: (a) Roles: the Parties agree that Media Company is a “data importer” and Client is the “data exporter” under the Standard Contractual Clauses. (b) Governing Law and Supervisory Authority: The Standard Contractual Clauses shall be governed by the law of the EU Member State in which the data exporter is established and enforced by the Supervisory Authority of such EU Member State; (c) Sub-Processors: the Parties select general written authorization for Sub-processors; (d) Redress: The Parties elect to omit the optional text; (e) the Parties agree to the optional docking clause; and (f) Annex I, II and III are provided at the end of this Addendum as Appendix A and to the extent that there’s a conflict as between the Addendum and the Appendix A, the Appendix A shall govern.

9.3  The Parties further agree that if Transferred Personal Data includes UK Personal Data, and the Data Protection Laws apply to the transfers of such data, both Parties agree that the Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers reflecting the roles of the Parties as described in the Addendum in the form approved by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office and currently available at (as amended or updated from time to time) (“UK Standard Contractual Clauses”) shall be incorporated by reference and form an integral part of this Addendum. For the purposes of the UK Standard Contractual Clauses, Appendix A of these Terms shall take the place of Annex 1, Annex II and Annex III respectively of the UK Standard Contractual Clauses.

9.4  If the Standard Contractual Clauses or any other model clause transfer agreement are deemed invalid by a governmental entity with jurisdiction over Transferred Personal Data (e.g., the EU Court of Justice) or if such governmental entity imposes additional rules and/or restrictions regarding such Transferred Personal Data, the Parties agree to work in good faith to find an alternative and/or modified transfer mechanism.

10          Liability

10.1      Both Parties agree that their respective liability under this Addendum shall be apportioned according to each Parties’ respective responsibility for the harm (if any) caused by each respective Party.

10.2      Liability Cap Exclusions. Nothing in this Section 10 will affect the remaining terms of the Agreement relating to liability (including any specific exclusions from any limitation of liability).

11          Miscellaneous

11.1      This Addendum will take effect on the date it is executed by Client and Media Company at the bottom of this Addendum (the “Effective Date”) and will remain in effect until, and automatically expire upon, the deletion of all Personal Data by Media Company or Client through the Services as described in this Addendum.

11.2      Nothing in this Addendum shall impact either Party’s intellectual property rights with respect to Personal Data provided by such Party under the Addendum except to the extent required by applicable law.

11.3      Nothing in this Addendum shall confer any benefits or rights on any person or entity other than the Parties to this Addendum.

11.5      Both Parties agree to notify the other Party within five (5) business days if it (i) has reason to believe that it is unable to comply with any of its obligations under this Addendum and it cannot cure this inability to comply within a reasonable timeframe; or (ii) becomes aware of any circumstances or change in Data Protection Laws that is likely to prevent it from fulfilling its obligations under this Addendum.  If this Addendum, or any actions to be taken or contemplated to be taken in performance of this Addendum, does not or would not satisfy either Party’s obligations under such Data Protection Laws, the Parties will negotiate in good faith an amendment to this Addendum. If such negotiations fail, Client reserves the right to take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate any non-compliance or unauthorized processing of Personal Data, including by terminating the Agreement without penalty.
