(a) describe the nature of the Personal Data Breach including where possible, the categories and approximate number of Data Subjects concerned and the categories and approximate number of Personal Data records concerned;

(b) communicate the name and contact details of the data protection officer or other contact point where more information can be obtained;

(c) describe the likely consequences of the Personal Data Breach;

(d) describe the measures taken or proposed to be taken by the Supplier to address the Personal Data Breach, including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects.

Where, and in so far as, it is not possible to provide the information at the same time, the information may be provided in phases without undue further delay.

4.3 The Supplier shall, in accordance with the Separate Pricing, assist the Customer in ensuring compliance with the Customer’s obligations pursuant to Laws to notify the Personal Data Breach to the supervisory authority and/or to the Data Subjects, taking into account the nature of the Processing and the information available to the Supplier, such as by providing any other relevant information requested by the Customer which is or may be necessary for the Customer when preparing the notification or responding to additional requests of the competent supervisory authority related to the Personal Data Breach.

5. USE OF SUBCONTRACTORS

5.1 The Customer hereby gives the Supplier a general authorisation to engage Subcontractors as the Supplier’s sub-Processor(s) for the purpose of the Processing.

5.2 A list of the Supplier’s current sub-Processor(s) will be provided upon request from the Supplier. The Supplier will notify the Customer of intended changes concerning the engagement of new sub-Processor(s). The Customer has fourteen (14) days after receiving such notification to object to the engagement of new sub-Processor(s) in writing, including valid reasonable reasoning for the objection. If the Customer objects to the engagement of a new sub-Processor as permitted herein and if the Supplier does not change the run.events Software Service  to avoid the Processing of the Personal Data by that new sub-Processor within sixty (60) days after receiving such objection and reasoning, either Party may terminate the Agreement with respect to the run.events Software Service  to the extent provided by the Supplier by using that sub-Processor, by giving the other Party a thirty (30) days’ written notice. Such termination is the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy. The Customer also understands and agrees that if the Supplier for some reason (e.g. due to the sub-Processor’s financial situation) does not have the resources of an earlier sub-Processor any longer and if the Customer has objected to the engagement of a replacement sub-Processor, there can be loss of the functionality of the run.events Software Service, unavailability of the run.events Software Service and/or other problems in the provision of the run.events Software Service , until acceptable replacement resources are found or the Agreement wholly or partly terminated, as permitted herein. These problems are not deemed as the Supplier’s breaches.

5.3 If the Supplier engages a sub-Processor for carrying out the Processing activities, the Supplier shall agree with the sub-Processor on data protection obligations substantially similar as in this Schedule by way of a written contract or other legal act, to the extent applicable to the nature of the services provided by such sub-Processor, in particular providing sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in such a manner that the processing will meet the requirements of the GDPR. Where that sub-Processor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations, the Supplier shall remain fully liable to the Customer for the performance of that sub-Processor’s obligations as for the Supplier’s own obligations under this Schedule.

5.4 For avoidance of doubt, Third Party Suppliers are not Subcontractors or sub-Processors of the Supplier.
