1. CCPA PERSONAL INFORMATION PROCESSING
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) grants California residents certain rights regarding the collection of their personal information and imposes various data protection duties on certain entities conducting business in California. Accordingly, this Section 1 shall primarily apply to all Authorized Users that fall within the scope of the CCPA. In all other circumstances, this Section 1 shall apply solely to the extent that Clean.io and a Client have expressly agreed in their Principal Agreement that Clean.io will collect, receive or otherwise process “Personal Information” of California consumers, or Clean.io is aware that it has any such “Personal Information” in its possession despite its intention not to collect or receive such information.
2. GDPR PERSONAL DATA PROCESSING
This Section 2 shall primarily apply to all Authorized Users covered by the EU Data Protection Laws. In all other circumstances, this Section 2 shall apply solely to the extent that Clean.io and a Client have expressly agreed in their Principal Agreement that Clean.io will collect, receive or otherwise process “Personal Data” originating from the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, or Clean.io is aware that it has any such “Personal Data” in its possession despite its intention not to collect or receive such information.
3. REQUIRED CONSENTS
4. ACCESS REQUESTS
If Clean.io receives a request submitted by a Consumer or Data Subject to exercise a right it has under the CCPA or a EU Data Protection Laws in relation to that Consumer’s Personal Information or that Data Subject’s GDPR Personal Data, respectively, it will provide a copy of the request to the Client. The Client will be responsible for handling and communicating with Consumers and Data Subjects in relation to such requests and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, Clean.io shall not respond to the Data Subject or Consumer.
5. GOVERNMENT REQUESTS
Clean.io shall notify Client of any request for the disclosure of GDPR Personal Data or Personal Information by a governmental or regulatory body or law enforcement authority (including any data protection supervisory authority) unless otherwise prohibited by law or a legally binding order of such body or agency.
6. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
Clean.io is located in the USA. Therefore, any GDPR Personal Data we collect will be collected and stored in the USA. For Users and Authorized Users that are in the EU, EEA, Switzerland or UK, this means that their GDPR Personal Data will be stored in a jurisdiction that offers a level of protection that may, in certain instances, be less protective of their GDPR Personal Data than the jurisdiction the User or Authorized User is typically resident in; provided however that please note that Clean.io adheres to the Standard Contractual Clauses. For this purpose, “Standard Contractual Clauses” means the standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data from controllers in the EU to data processors established outside the EU or EEA issued by the European Commission under decision 2010/87/EU attached hereto as EXHIBIT 2, as amended by Section 3.
lean.io may from time to time use certain subcontractors (i.e., subprocessors) in connection with providing the cleanAD Services (“Subprocessors”). See our Subprocessor List for more information regarding the specific Subprocessors we use. For the avoidance of doubt, Client hereby approves all applicable Subprocessors identified on our Subprocessor List to the extent applicable to the cleanAD Services received by Client. Clean.io may update our Subprocessor List from time to time and we recommend for each Client to periodically review the Subprocessor List. By continuing to use our cleanAD Services after any changes or modifications are made to the Subprocessor List, Client is deemed to have automatically accepted accept the updated Subprocessor List. If a Client (acting reasonably) does not approve of any Subprocessor on the list, they should contact us at email@example.com so we can discuss the basis for the Client’s disapproval and possible alternative Subprocessors.
With respect to all Subprocessors having access to GDPR Personal Data: Client acknowledges that in order for Clean.io to provide the cleanAD Services it may be necessary for certain Subprocessors to access or otherwise process the GDPR Personal Data outside the EEA, Switzerland or United Kingdom. In those circumstances, Client will only use Subprocessors that have and maintain certification to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield or that comply with the Standard Contractual Clauses.
8. DATA SECURITY MEASURES
Clean.io follows industry standards on information security management to safeguard sensitive information (such as Personal Information as defined by CCPA and Personal Data as defined by EU Data Protection Laws), including the measures set out in EXHIBIT 3. Our information security systems apply to people, processes and information technology systems on a risk management basis. Without limiting the foregoing, Clean.io shall treat the GDPR Personal Data and all CCPA Personal Information as the Confidential Information of the Client, and shall ensure that any employees or other personnel have agreed in writing to protect the confidentiality and security of such data and information. Upon request by the Client, but no more frequently than once per calendar year (or more frequently if circumstances reasonably require) and only upon ten business days prior written notice, Clean.io shall make available all information reasonably necessary to demonstrate compliance with this DPA.
If Clean.io becomes aware of a security incident involving a Client’s sensitive information, Clean.io will (a) notify the Client of the security incident within 72 hours, (b) investigate the security incident and provide such reasonable assistance to the Client (and any law enforcement or regulatory official) as required to investigate the security incident, and (c) take steps to remedy any non-compliance with this DPA. Notwithstanding the foregoing, because no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, Clean.io cannot guarantee that unauthorized parties will not gain access to Personal Information processed by the cleanAD Services. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Clean.io expressly excludes any liability arising from any unauthorized access to Personal Information as defined by CCPA and Personal Data as defined by EU Data Protection Laws.
Depending on the terms of your Principal Agreement, we may in certain circumstances collect, receive or otherwise process Personal Information and/or GDPR Personal Data in connection with use of the cleanAD Services by a Client’s affiliates. In such cases, the Client will act as a single point of contact for its affiliates with respect to CCPA and GDPR compliance, such that if Clean.io gives notice to the Client, such information or notice will be deemed received by the Client’s affiliates. Client shall be responsible for such affiliates’ compliance with this DPA and all acts and/or omissions by a Client affiliate with respect to Client’s obligations in this DPA shall be considered the acts and/or omissions of Client. The Parties acknowledge and agree that any claims in connection with this DPA (or GDPR or CCPA) will be brought by the Client, whether acting for itself or on behalf of an affiliate.
10. CLIENT AGREEMENTS
Client agrees that it: (i) will comply with its obligations under all applicable data protection laws and related laws with respect to its processing of Client personal information; (ii) will make appropriate use of the cleanAD Services to ensure a level of security appropriate to the particular content of the Client personal information, such as pseudonymizing or backing-up Client personal information; and(iii) has obtained all consents, permissions and rights necessary applicable data protection laws and related laws for Clean.io to lawfully process Client personal information for the purposes, including, without limitation, Client's sharing and/or receiving of Client personal information with third-parties via the cleanAD Services.
11. ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS DPA
Any provision of this DPA that is prohibited or unenforceable shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invaliding the remaining provisions hereof. The parties will attempt to agree upon a valid and enforceable provision that is a reasonable substitute and shall then incorporate such substitute provision into the Principal Agreement.
12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Clean.io’s aggregate liability to its Clients arising from or related to this DPA is subject to the applicable terms and conditions of the Client’s respective Principal Agreement.
Client agrees to indemnify the Processor and its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, successors and permitted assigns (each an “Indemnified Party”, and collectively the “Indemnified Parties”) against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, actions, judgments, settlements, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses of whatever kind, including legal fees and court fees, that are incurred by the Indemnified Parties (collectively, “Losses”) arising out of any third party claim brought against the Processor relating to or arising out any instructions given by the Client to the Processor with respect to processing of Personal Information and/or GDPR Personal Data , any failure to obtain the consents or provide the notices required under Section 3, or any other breach by the Client of any EU Data Protection Laws, the CCPA, or any other applicable privacy law.

(d) ‘the sub-processor’ means any processor engaged by the data importer or by any other sub-processor of the data importer who agrees to receive from the data importer or from any other sub-processor of the data importer personal data exclusively intended for processing activities to be carried out on behalf of the data exporter after the transfer in accordance with his instructions, the terms of the Clauses and the terms of the written subcontract;
(e) ‘the applicable data protection law’ means the legislation protecting the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals and, in particular, their right to privacy with respect to the processing of personal data applicable to a data controller in the Member State in which the data exporter is established;
