The terms, “Commission”, “Company”, “Data Subject”, “Member State”, “Personal Data”, “Personal  Data Breach”, “Processing” and “Supervisory Authority” shall have the same meaning as in the GDPR,  and their cognate terms shall be construed accordingly. 

  1. Processing of Company Personal Data 

Data Processor shall: 

(a) comply with all applicable Data Protection Laws in the Processing of Company Personal Data; and 

(b) not Process Company Personal Data other than on the relevant Company’s documented  instructions. 

(c) The Company instructs Data Processor to process Company Personal Data. 3. Processor Personnel 

Data Processor shall take reasonable steps to ensure the reliability of any employee, agent or contractor  of any Sub-Processor who may have access to the Company Personal Data, ensuring in each case that  access is strictly limited to those individuals who need to know/access the relevant Company Personal  Data, as strictly necessary for the purposes of the Agreement, and to comply with Applicable Laws in the  context of that individual’s duties to the Data Processor and Sub-Processor, ensuring that all such  individuals are subject to confidentiality undertakings or professional or statutory obligations of  confidentiality. 

  1. Security 

Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and  purposes of Processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of  natural persons, Data Processor shall in relation to the Company Personal Data implement appropriate 

Data Processing Addendum – Shippo (Rev.20211110) 

technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to that risk, including, as  appropriate, the measures referred to in Article 32(1) of the GDPR. 

In assessing the appropriate level of security, Data Processor shall take account in particular of the risks  that are presented by Processing, in particular from a Personal Data Breach. 

  1. Sub-Processors 

Data Controller acknowledges and agrees that Data Processor may (1) engage its affiliates and the  Authorized Sub-Processors listed in Exhibit A to this DPA to access and Process Personal Data in  connection with the Services and (2) from time to time engage additional third parties for the purpose of  providing the Services, including without limitation the Processing of Personal Data. By way of this DPA,  Data Controller provides general written authorization to Processor to engage sub-processors as  necessary to perform the Services. 

A list of Data Processor’s current Authorized Sub-Processors (the “List”) will be made available to Data  Controller, either attached hereto, at a link provided to Data Controller, via email or through another  means made available to Data Controller. The List may be updated by Data Processor from time to time to maintain accuracy. The List may provide a mechanism to subscribe to notifications of new Authorized  Sub-Processors and Data Controller agrees to subscribe to such notifications where available. At least ten  (10) days before enabling any third party other than Authorized Sub-Processors to access or participate in  the Processing of Personal Data, Data Processor will add such third party to the List. Data Controller may  reasonably object to such an engagement on legitimate grounds by informing Data Processor in writing  within ten (10) days of receipt of the aforementioned notice by Data Controller. Data Controller  acknowledges that certain Sub-Processors are essential to providing the Services and that objecting to the  use of a sub-processor may prevent Data Processor from offering the Services to Data Controller.  

If Data Controller reasonably objects to an engagement in accordance with this section, and Data  Processor cannot provide a commercially reasonable alternative within a reasonable period of time, Data  Processor may terminate this Addendum. Termination shall not relieve Data Controller of any fees owed  to Processor under the Agreement.  

If Data Controller does not object to the engagement of a third party in accordance with this section within  ten (10) days of notice by Data Processor, that third party will be deemed an Authorized Sub-Processor  for the purposes of this Addendum. 

Data Processor will enter into a written agreement with the Authorized Sub-Processor imposing on the  Authorized Sub-Processor data protection obligations comparable to those imposed on Data Processor  under this Addendum with respect to the protection of Personal Data. In case an Authorized Sub Processor fails to fulfill its data protection obligations under such written agreement with Data Processor,  Data Processor will remain liable to Data Controller for the performance of the Authorized Sub-Processor’s  obligations under such agreement. 

  1. Data Subject Rights 

Taking into account the nature of the Processing, Data Processor shall assist the Company by  implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the 

Data Processing Addendum – Shippo (Rev.20211110) 

fulfilment of the Company obligations, as reasonably understood by Company, to respond to requests to  exercise Data Subject rights under the Data Protection Laws. 

Data Processor shall: 

(a) promptly notify Company if it receives a request from a Data Subject under any Data Protection  Law in respect of Company Personal Data; and 

(b) ensure that it does not respond to that request except on the documented instructions of  Company or as required by Applicable Laws to which the Data Processor is subject, in which case  Data Processor shall to the extent permitted by Applicable Laws inform Company of that legal  requirement before the Sub-Processor responds to the request. 

  1. Personal Data Breach 

Data Processor shall notify Company without undue delay upon Data Processor becoming aware of a  Personal Data Breach affecting Company Personal Data, providing Company with sufficient information  to allow the Company to meet any obligations to report or inform Data Subjects of the Personal Data  Breach under the Data Protection Laws.

  1. Data Protection Impact Assessment and Prior Consultation 

Data Processor shall provide reasonable assistance to the Company with any data protection impact  assessments, and prior consultations with Supervising Authorities or other competent data privacy  authorities, which Company reasonably considers to be required by article 35 or 36 of the GDPR or  equivalent provisions of any other Data Protection Law, in each case solely in relation to Processing of  Company Personal Data by, and taking into account the nature of the Processing and information available  to, the Sub-Processors. 

  1. Deletion or Return of Company Personal Data 

Subject to this section 9, Data Processor shall promptly and in any event within ten (10) business days of  the date of cessation of any Services involving the Processing of Company Personal Data (the “Cessation  Date”), delete and procure the deletion of all copies of those Company Personal Data. 

Data Processor shall provide written certification to Company that it has fully complied with this section  9 within ten (10) business days of the Cessation Date. 

  1. Audit Rights 

Subject to this section 10, Data Processor shall make available to the Company on request all information  necessary to demonstrate compliance with this Agreement, and shall allow for and contribute to audits,  including inspections, by the Company or an auditor mandated by the Company in relation to the  Processing of the Company Personal Data by the Data Processor and Sub-Processors.

Data Processing Addendum – Shippo (Rev.20211110) 

Information and audit rights of the Company only arise under section 10.1 to the extent that the  Agreement does not otherwise give them information and audit rights meeting the relevant requirements  of Data Protection Law. 

  1. Data Transfer 

The Data Processor may not transfer or authorize the transfer of Data to countries outside the EU and/or  the European Economic Area (EEA) without the prior written consent of the Company. If personal data  processed under this Agreement is transferred from a country within the European Economic Area to a  country outside the European Economic Area, the Parties shall ensure that the personal data are  adequately protected. To achieve this, the Parties shall, unless agreed otherwise, rely on EU approved  standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission pursuant to implementing  Decision (EU) 2021/914 under Article 46 of the GDPR for the transfer of Personal Data from data exporters  in the EEA to data importers in third countries

  1. General Terms
