3.6 We will not Process Patient or Client Data other than on your Instructions unless required by any law to which we are subject, in which case we will to the extent permitted by applicable law inform you of that legal requirement before we Process that Patient or Client Data.
3.7 As required by article 28(3) of the GDPR (and, if applicable, equivalent requirements of other Applicable Data Protection Laws), the nature and purpose of the Processing, the types of Patient or Client Data and categories of Data Subjects Processed under this Addendum are set out in Schedule 1.

It is also your responsibility to enter into data processing agreements with other relevant Data Controllers in order to allow us and our Sub-Processors to Process Patient or Client Data in accordance with this Addendum.

6.1 You acknowledge and agree that we may engage third party Sub-Processors in connection with the provision of the Service.
6.2 We have entered into (and will, for any new Sub-Processor, enter into) written agreements with each Sub-Processor containing data protection obligations which offer at least the same level of protection for Patient or Client Data as set out in this Addendum and that meet the requirements of Article 28(3) of the GDPR, as applicable to the nature of the services provided by that Sub-Processor.
6.3 You may request copies of our written agreements with Sub-Processors (which may be redacted to remove confidential information not relevant to this Addendum).
6.4 A list of current Sub-Processors for the Services as at 25 May 2018 is set out in Schedule 2. We may update the list of Sub-Processors from time to time and, subject to clause 6.5, we will give prior written notice of any new Sub-Processor.
6.5 We may engage Sub-Processors as needed to serve as an Emergency Replacement to maintain and support the Services. Emergency Replacement means a sudden replacement of a Sub-Processor where a change is outside our reasonable control. In this case, we will inform you of the replacement Sub-Processor as soon as reasonably practicable.
6.6 If you object to any new Sub-Processor, you may, despite anything to the contrary in the Terms, terminate these Terms and your right to access and use the Service without penalty on written notice, provided (in the case of a new Sub-Processor notified under clause 6.4) your notice of termination is received by us before the effective date of our notice under clause 6.4 or (in the case of a new Sub-Processor notified under clause 6.5) your notice of termination is received by us within 30 days of our notice of the new Sub-Processor. If you do not terminate these Terms and your right to access and use the Service in accordance with this clause, you are deemed to have agreed to the new Sub-Processor.
6.7 We are liable for the acts and omissions of our Sub-Processors to the same extent we would be liable if performing the services of each Sub-Processor directly under the terms of this Addendum, except as otherwise set out in this Addendum.
We will maintain technical and organisational measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity and security (including protection against unauthorised or unlawful Processing and against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration or damage, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, Data) of Patient or Client Data, and to manage data security incidents affecting Patient or Client Data, in accordance with Appendix 2 of the Standard Contractual Clauses.
8 SECURITY BREACH MANAGEMENT
8.1 We will comply with all applicable laws requiring notification to you of any accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to Patient or Client Data Processed by us or our Sub-Processors of which we become aware (Breach Incident).
8.2 We will make reasonable efforts to identify the cause of that Breach Incident, notify you within a timely manner to allow you to meet your obligations to report a Breach Incident, and take steps we consider necessary and reasonable to remediate the cause of the Breach Incident, to the extent remediation is within our reasonable control.
9 DATA PROTECTION IMPACT ASSESSMENT
Upon your written request, we will provide you with reasonable assistance needed to fulfil your obligation under the GDPR to carry out a data protection impact assessment relating to your use of the Service, to the extent you do not otherwise have access to the relevant information.
10 AUDIT AND COMPLIANCE
Upon your written request, we will submit to your audits and inspections, and provide you all information necessary, to demonstrate that both you and we are complying with our respective obligations under Applicable Data Protection Laws (including our respective obligations under Article 28 of the GDPR).
11 RETURN AND DELETION OF PATIENT OR CLIENT DATA

a) return a complete copy of all Patient or Client Data Processed by us by secure file transfer in a common format; and
b) delete all other copies of Patient or Client Data Processed by us or any Sub-Processor.
11.3 We, or each Sub-Processor, may retain Patient or Client Data to the extent that it is required by applicable laws, provided that we ensure the confidentiality of all such Patient or Client Data and ensure that such Patient or Client Data is only processed as necessary for the purposes required under applicable laws requiring its Processing and for no other purpose.
11.4 With the exception of patient photos and signatures (which must, where deletion is required under this clause 11, be completely and permanently deleted), you agree that we may satisfy any requirement to delete Patient or Client Data under this clause 11 by anonymising the Patient or Client Data so that it is no longer Personal Data.
11.5 You are responsible for deletion of Patient or Client Data held locally in the Finger-Ink App in compliance with Applicable Data Protection Law.
12 CHANGES IN DATA PROTECTION LAWS
12.1 We may on prior written notice to you from time to time, make any variations to this Addendum (including to the Standard Contractual Clauses), which we consider (acting reasonable) are required as a result of any change in, or decision of a competent authority under, Applicable Data Protection Law, to allow transfers and Processing of Patient or Client Data to continue without breach of Applicable Data Protection Law.
12.2 If you object to any variation under clause 12.1, you may, despite anything to the contrary in the Terms, terminate these Terms and your right to access and use the Service without penalty on written notice, provided your notice of termination is received by us before the effective date of our notice. If you do not terminate these Terms and your right to access and use the Service in accordance with this clause, you are deemed to have agreed to the variation.
13 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The liability of each party to the other party under or in connection with this Addendum is subject to the limitations and exclusions set out in the Terms, and any reference in the Terms to the liability of a party means the aggregate liability of that party under the Terms and this Addendum together.
If any provision of this Addendum is, or becomes unenforceable, illegal or invalid for any reason, the relevant provision is deemed to be varied to the extent necessary to remedy the unenforceability, illegality or invalidity. If variation is not possible, the provision must be treated as severed from this Addendum without affecting any other provisions of this Addendum.
