For the processing of Respondents’ data on behalf of the Data Controller, the Data Processor undertakes to fulfil the following obligations:

a) To treat the personal data only to carry out the provision of the contracted Services, in accordance with the instructions given in writing, at any time, by the Data Controller (unless there is a legal rule that requires complementary processing, in such a case, the Data Processor will inform the Data Controller of that legal requirement prior to the processing, unless the Law prohibits it on public interest grounds). 

b) To maintain the duty of secrecy with respect to the personal data to which the Data Processor has access, even after the termination of the contractual relationship.

c) To ensure, taking into account the available technology, the costs of implementation, and the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing, as well as the risks of varying probability and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, that they will apply adequate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including, where appropriate, among other things:

-The pseudonymisation and encryption
-The ability of ensuring the continued confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of the systems and services ;
-A process of regular verification, evaluation and assessment of the effectiveness of the technical and organizational measures in order to ensure the safety of the processing.

When evaluating the adequacy of the security level, special account shall be taken of the risks presented by the data processing, in particular as a consequence of the destruction, loss or accidental or unlawful alteration of the personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed, or the communication or unauthorized access to such data.

In the event that the implementation of specific and concrete security measures is needed, those measures will be added to this Agreement by means of an Annex.

d) To keep under their control and custody the personal data to which they have access in relation with the provision of the Service, and to not disclose them, neither transfer or otherwise communicate them, not even for their preservation, to persons unrelated with the provision of the Service covered by this Agreement.

In any case, access to the data made by natural persons who render their services to the Data Processor, acting within the organizational framework of the latter by virtue of a commercial and non-labour relationship, is authorized. In addition, access to the data is granted to companies and professionals that the Data Processor has hired in their internal organizational framework in order to provide general or maintenance services (computer services, consulting, audits, etc.), as long as such tasks have not been arranged by the Data Processor with the purpose of subcontracting with a third party all or part of the Services provided to the Data Controller.

e) To delete or return to the Data Controller, at their choice, all personal data to which they have had access in order to provide the Service. Likewise, the Data Processor undertakes to delete the existing copies, unless there is a legal rule that requires the preservation of the personal data. However, employees and other personnel working for the Data Processor are entitled to access Users and Respondents data as required to carry out their obligations under the terms of their contract. 

f) To notify the Data Controller, without undue delay, of any personal data security breaches of which he is aware, giving support to the Data Controller in the notification to the Spanish Data Protection Agency or other competent Control Authority and, if applicable, to the interested parties of the security breaches that occur, as well as to provide support, when necessary, in the carrying-out of privacy impact assessments and to assist the Data Controller so they can fulfil the obligation of responding the requests to exercise certain rights.

g) To bring, in writing, a record of all categories of processing activities performed on behalf of the Data Controller.

h) To cooperate with control authorities, at its request, in the fulfilment of its power.

i) To make available to the Data Controller the whole information necessary to demonstrate the fulfilment of the obligations established under this Agreement, as well as to allow and contribute to the performance of audits, including inspections, by the Data Controller or by a third party authorized by them. 

If the Data Processor or any of his Subcontractors violates this Agreement or any regulation when determining the purposes and means of the processing, they shall be held responsible for such processing. Furthermore, if such Subcontractors are based in countries which do not have a legislation on data protection which is equivalent to the EU legislation (“Third Countries”), Data Processor shall establish all safeguards required by the EU legislation in order to comply with all obligations arising from transfers of data to Third Countries, and shall promptly inform Data Controller about such safeguards if so requested.
