The terms, “Commission”, “Controller”, “Data Subject”, “Member State”, “Personal Data”, “Personal Data Breach”, “Processor”, “Processing” and “Sub-Processor” shall have the same meaning as in the UK GDPR.

3. Role of the Parties


Where you provide personal data to us to sign up to our Services and create an account, we are acting as a data controller.


Where you invite your workers to use our Services and/or tailor our Services to induct workers to a site and request that we collect particular personal data from your workers, we are acting as your data processor and you are acting as a data controller.

4. Processing of Personal Data


Where you provide personal data to us to sign up to our Services and create an account, we are acting as a data controller.


You instruct us to process Transferred Data in accordance with this DPA (including in accordance with Annex 1).


We agree to not process Transferred Data other than on your documented instructions.

5. Our Personnel

We agree to take reasonable steps to ensure the reliability of any of our Personnel who may have access to the Transferred Data, ensuring in each case that:

(a) access is strictly limited to those individuals who need to know / access the relevant Transferred Data, as strictly necessary for the purposes of the Agreement; and
(b) the relevant Personnel are subject to confidentiality undertakings or professional or statutory obligations of confidentiality.

6. 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, we agree to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in relation to the Transferred Data to ensure a level of security appropriate to that risk in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Law, and as further particularised in Annex 2.


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

7. Sub-Processing


You authorise our engagement of the Sub-Processors already engaged by us at the date of this DPA that are set out in Annex 3.


Where we wish to engage a new Sub-Processor, we agree to provide written notice to you of the details of the engagement of the Sub-Processor at least 7 days’ prior to engaging the new Sub-Processor (including details of the processing it will perform). You may object in writing to our appointment of a new Sub-Processor within 5 days of such notice, provided that such objection is based on reasonable grounds relating to data protection. In such event, the Parties will discuss such concerns in good faith with a view to achieving resolution. If the Parties are not able to achieve resolution, we may, at our election:
(a) not appoint the proposed Sub-Processor;
(b) not disclose any Transferred Personal Data we process on the your behalf to the proposed Sub-Processor; or
(c) inform you that we may terminate the Agreement (including this DPA) for convenience, in which case, clause 14.3 will apply.


You agree that the remedies described above in clauses 7.2(a)-(c) are the only remedies available to you if you object to any proposed Sub-Processor by us.


Where we engage a Sub-Processor to process Transferred Personal Data, we agree to enter into a written agreement with the Sub-Processor containing data protection obligations no less protective that those in this DPA with respect to the Transferred Personal Data (including in relation to Restricted Transfers), and to remain responsible to you for the performance of such Sub-Processor’s data protection obligations under such terms.


Where the the transfer of Transferred Data from us to a Sub-Processor is a Restricted Transfer, it will be subject to the UK Addendum (and documents or legislation referred to within it), which shall be deemed to be incorporated into this DPA, and the UK Addendum is considered an appropriate safeguard.

8. Data Subject Rights

(a) promptly notify you if we receive a request from a Data Subject under any Applicable Data Protection Law in respect of Transferred Data; and
(b) ensure that we do not respond to that request except on your documented instructions or as required by Applicable Data Protection Law to which we are subject, in which case we shall, to the extent permitted by Applicable Data Protection Law, inform you of that legal requirement before we (or our Sub-Processor) respond to the request.

If you decide to notify a Supervisory Authority, Data Subjects or the public of a Data Breach, you agree to provide us with advance copies of the proposed notices and, subject to Applicable Data Protection Law (including any mandated deadlines under the UK GDPR), allow us an opportunity to provide any clarifications or corrections to those notices.

We agree to provide reasonable assistance to you with any data protection impact assessments, and prior consultations with Supervising Authorities or other competent data privacy authorities, which you reasonably consider to be required by article 35 or 36 of the UK GDPR or equivalent provisions of any other Data Protection Law (to the extent you do not otherwise have access to the relevant information and such information is in our control).

11. Deletion or return of Personal Data

Subject to this clause 11, and subject to any document retention requirements at law, we agree to promptly and in any event within 10 business days of the date of cessation of any Services involving the Processing of Transferred Data (Cessation Date), delete and procure the deletion of all copies of those Transferred Data.

12. Audit Rights


Subject to this clause 12, where required by law, we shall make available to you on request all information reasonably necessary to demonstrate compliance with this DPA, and shall allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, by you or an auditor mandated by you in relation to the Processing of the Transferred Data by us.


Where clause 12.1 applies, any audit (or inspection):
(a) must be conducted during our regular business hours, with reasonable advance notice (which shall not be less than 30 business days);
(b) will be subject to our reasonable confidentiality procedures;
(c) must be limited in scope to matters specific to you and agreed in advance with us;
(d) must not require us to disclose to you any information that could cause us to breach any of our obligations under Applicable Data Protection Law;

(f) may only be requested by you a maximum of one time per year, except where required by a competent Supervisory Authority or where there has been a Personal Data Breach in relation to Transferred Data, caused by us.


Information and audit rights of you only arise under section 12.1 to the extent that the Platform Terms and Conditions does not otherwise give it information and audit rights meeting the relevant requirements of Applicable Data Protection Law.

13. Liability

Despite anything to the contrary in the Agreement or this DPA, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the Liability of each Party and its affiliates under this DPA is subject to the exclusions and limitations of Liability set out in the Agreement.

14. Termination


Each Party agrees that a failure or inability to comply with the terms of this DPA and/or the Applicable Data Protection Law constitutes a material breach of the Agreement. In such event, you may, without penalty:
(a) require us to suspend the processing of Transferred Data until such compliance is restored; or
(b) terminate the Agreement effective immediately on written notice to us.


In the case of such suspension or termination, we shall provide a prompt pro-rata refund of all sums paid in advance under the Agreement which relate to the period of suspension or the period after the date of termination (as applicable).
