2.2.1. Process the Personal Data as a Data Processor, only for the purpose of providing the Services in accordance with documented instructions from you (provided that such instructions are commensurate with the functionalities of the Services), and as may subsequently be agreed to by you.

2.2.4. implement and maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures designed to protect the Personal Data against unauthorized or unlawful Processing and against accidental loss, destruction, damage, theft, alteration or disclosure. These measures shall be appropriate to the harm which might result from any unauthorized or unlawful Processing, accidental loss, destruction, damage or theft of Personal Data and appropriate to the nature of the Personal Data which is to be protected;

2.2.5. provide you, upon your written request, with up-to-date attestations, reports or extracts thereof, where available, from a source charged with auditing ReCharge’s data protection practices (e.g. external auditors, internal audit, data protection auditors), or suitable certifications, to enable you to assess compliance with the terms of this Addendum;

2.3. In the course of providing the Services, you acknowledge and agree that ReCharge may use Subprocessors to Process the Personal Data. ReCharge’s use of any specific Subprocessor to Process the Personal Data must be in compliance with Data Protection Legislation and must be governed by a contract between ReCharge and the Subprocessor.

2.4. Controller hereby authorizes ReCharge to perform International Data Transfers to any country on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission as provided in Article 45 GDPR; on the basis of appropriate safeguards in accordance with Data Protection Legislation; or pursuant to the Standard Contractual Clauses referred to in this Section 2.4. By signing this Addendum, Controller and ReCharge conclude the Standard Contractual Clauses, which are hereby incorporated into this Addendum and completed as follows: Controller is the “data exporter”; ReCharge is the “data importer”; the governing law in Clause 9 and Clause 11.3 of the Standard Contractual Clauses is the law of the country in which Controller is established; Appendix 1 and Appendix 2 to the Standard Contractual Clauses, are Appendix 1 and 2 to this Addendum respectively; and the optional indemnification clause is struck. If ReCharge’s compliance with Data Protection Legislation applicable to International Data Transfers is affected by circumstances outside of ReCharge’s control, including if a legal instrument for International Data Transfers is invalidated, amended, or replaced, then Controller and ReCharge will work together in good faith to reasonably resolve such non-compliance.
