6.5 The Provider will not inform any third party of any Personal Data Breach without first obtaining the Customer's prior written consent, except when required to do so by law. This term does not affect the Customer’s ability to report any Personal Data Breach to a third party.

6.6 The Provider agrees that the Customer has the sole right to determine:

a) whether to provide notice of the Personal Data Breach to any Data Subjects, supervisory authorities, regulators, law enforcement agencies or others, as required by law or regulation or in the Customer's discretion, including the contents and delivery method of the notice, and

b) whether to offer any type of remedy to affected Data Subjects, including the nature and extent of such remedy.

6.7 The Provider will cover all reasonable expenses associated with the performance of its obligations under clause 6.2 and clause 6.4 unless the matter arose from the Customer's specific instructions, negligence, willful default, or breach of this Data Processing Schedule, in which case the Customer will cover all reasonable expenses of both parties.

10.3 If a change in any Data Protection Legislation prevents either party from fulfilling all or part of its obligations under the Terms and Conditions, the parties will suspend the processing of Personal Data until that processing complies with the new requirements.

11. Data Return and Destruction

11.1 At the Customer's request, the Provider will give the Customer a copy of all of the Customer's Personal Data in its possession or control in a commonly accessible and electronic format determined by the Provider.

11.2 On termination of the Terms and Conditions for any reason or expiry of its term, the Provider will, within 30 days, securely delete or destroy or, if directed in writing by the Customer, return and not retain, all or any Personal Data related to this Data Processing Schedule in its possession or control. This requirement shall not apply to Personal Data which the Provider has archived on its backup systems which are not reasonably accessible, provided that such Personal Data is deleted promptly in the event such backups become reasonably accessible (such as by the Provider using those backups to restore its systems).

13. Audit

13.1 No more than once during any consecutive 12 month period, on request from the Customer, the Provider will carry out an audit (whether by itself or its third-party representatives) to audit its compliance with this Data Processing Schedule and provide the results to the Customer. The Customer shall be entitled to ask questions of the Provider related to compliance with Data Protection Legislation in advance of the audit, which the Provider shall use its reasonable efforts to respond to adequately when providing the audit results.

13.2 On the Customer's written request and at the Customer’s cost, the Provider will exercise relevant audit rights it has in connection with its subprocessor’s compliance with their obligations regarding the Customer's Personal Data and provide the Customer with the audit results.

13.3 The audit rights set out at clauses 13.1 – 13.2 are the Customer’s only contractual rights (and the Provider’s only obligations) in connection with the auditing of the Provider’s Processing of Personal Data. Save that nothing in this Data Processing Schedule shall prevent or is intended to undermine the rights and powers granted to Data Subjects or Supervisory Authorities, and accordingly the Provider shall submit to any audits required by a Supervisory Authority or Data Protection Law.

Challenges to information requests

3.1 In addition to the SCCs, in the event the Provider receives an order from any third party for compelled disclosure of any Personal Data it is Processing for the Customer, the Provider shall:

a) use every reasonable effort to redirect the third party to request data directly from the Customer.

Appendix C

Security Measures

Where is Customer data hosted and who is it hosted with?

Amazon Web Services, hosted within the US-East-2 region

Is the Customer’s data encrypted, and if so, what encryption methods are used?

Volumes for production systems are encrypted at-rest with AES-256 and in-transit with up-to-date TLS certificates on

What access controls are in place to ensure Customer data privacy and security?

Role-based access controls ensure that only the access needed to fulfill a particular role is given to an internal employee. There is no usage of third-party entities or contractors.

How is Customer’s data backed up and what is the frequency of backups?

All production systems are ephemeral and utilize infrastructure-as-code practices. There is currently no need for backups of our systems. The lifecycle policy for customer documents wipes all files a maximum of thirty minutes after initial upload. No customer data is retained or backed up.

Does Provider conduct any security assessments, either internal or external?

Regular internal security assessments of the endpoints, software dependencies, storage networking, ingress/egress security policies, and more are performed regularly.

What security monitoring measures does Provider have in place?

There are a variety of security monitoring policies enforced, including regular code review including software dependencies, threat protection monitoring of public-facing endpoints, and change control.

Is data segregated in any way to prevent unauthorized access?

Yes, please see the sections above related to role-based access controls and data lifecycle policies. The hosting servers are specific to the pdfRest service. Customer files can only be accessed via unique 128-bit UUIDs, which are only provided once in the response they receive back from a successful API Call. API Calls require their dedicated API Key, which is also a unique 128-bit UUID.  There is no way to query, search, or otherwise discover these resource IDs. Customer must safely store and protect these IDs when they receive them in API responses. Because Customer files are stored temporarily, these IDs only have access to retrieve files for a brief time.
