EU General Data Protection Regulation 'GDPR'
Lexyl shall ensure appropriate operational and technical measures are in place to safeguard personal data against data security breaches;
Lexyl shall notify group coordinators without undue delay if it becomes aware of any actual data security breaches and shall provide reasonable information and cooperation to group coordinators so that group coordinators can fulfil any data-breach reporting obligations it may have under (and in accordance with the timescales required by) applicable data protection legislation;
Lexyl shall, upon request, provide the group coordinator with a list of subcontractors who process personal data;
Lexyl shall only appoint third-party vendors or service providers as subprocessors of personal data where Lexyl:
(A) concludes written contracts with such subprocessors which provide for data protection terms that are no less protective than the terms set out in these requirements;
(B) notifies the group coordinator of any intended additions of or substitutions to existing subprocessors prior to such appointment;
If the group coordinator has sufficient grounds (regarding data protection) to believe that a subprocessor, appointed by Lexyl, will render Lexyl unable to fulfil its data protection obligations under these requirements, and so the group coordinator may, within 7 days of receipt of notice of their appointment, object to Lexyl's appointment of such a subprocessor, in which case Lexyl will not allow that subprocessor to further access the personal data until the group coordinator has agreed to the appointment or substitution of the subcontractor or until the group coordinator withdraws their objection;
Lexyl shall establish policies and procedures to always provide sufficient and prompt assistance to group coordinators in responding to any and all requests, complaints or other communications received from any individual who is or may be the subject of any personal data processed by Lexyl.
Cross-border data transfers
Lexyl shall not transfer (and shall not permit any third party to transfer) personal data outside the territory of origination unless it takes any required compliance measures to enable such transfer legally; and
With regard to EEA Data, Lexyl shall not transfer (and shall not permit any third party to transfer) such data in any territory outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) unless it takes such measures to ensure that such transfer of EEA Data is consistent with the requirements of chapter V of the GDPR. For the avoidance of doubt, such measures may include Lexyl (or third party, as applicable):
(A) ensuring that it processes the EEA data in a country that has been deemed adequate by the European Commission pursuant to Article 45 of the GDPR;
(B) processing the EEA data pursuant to standard contractual clauses (or 'model clauses') approved by a decision of the European Commission;
(C) processing the EEA data in compliance with binding corporate rules that have been duly authorised by EEA data protection authorities that are competent for the EEA data; and
(D) with respect to transferring the EEA data to the United States, processing such data pursuant to the EU-US and/or Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks, as applicable;
(E) Lexyl shall ensure that any person (including Lexyl's staff, agents and subcontractors) who is authorised to process personal data is subject to a strict duty of confidentiality (whether a contractual or statutory duty) and shall not permit any person to process the personal data who is not under such a duty of confidentiality; and
(F) with regard to EEA Data, Lexyl shall assist group coordinators to conduct data protection impact assessments to the extent such assessments are required by the GDPR, and if necessary, consult with relevant supervisory authorities pursuant to Articles 35-36 of the GDPR.
