6. Confidentiality and Data Security
6.1.Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all information of a party or its Affiliates (“Discloser”) disclosed to the other party or its Affiliates (“Recipient”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. The Services and Sage Data are our Confidential Information. Customer Data is your Confidential Information.
6.2.Exceptions. Confidential Information excludes: (i) information that was known to the Recipient without a confidentiality restriction prior to its disclosure by the Discloser; (ii) information that was or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the Recipient; (iii) information that the Recipient rightfully received from a third party authorized to make such disclosure without restriction; (iv) information that has been independently developed by the Recipient without use of the Discloser’s Confidential Information; and (v) information that was authorised for release in writing by the Discloser.
6.3.Confidentiality Obligations. The Recipient will use the same degree of care and resources as it uses for its own confidential information of like nature (but no less than reasonable care) to protect the Discloser’s Confidential Information from any use or disclosure not permitted by this Agreement or authorized by the Discloser. The Recipient may disclose the Discloser’s Confidential Information to its employees, Affiliates and service providers who need access to such Confidential Information to effect the intent of this Agreement, provided that they are bound by confidentiality obligations no less restrictive than those herein. Recipient shall be responsible for any breach of this clause by its employees, Affiliates and service providers.
6.4.Disclosure Required by Law. The Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by court or administrative order or law, provided that the Recipient provides advance notice thereof (unless requested or ordered not to do so by law enforcement or a court) and reasonable assistance, at the Discloser’s cost, to enable the Discloser to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent or limit such disclosure.
6.5.Injunctive Relief. A breach of the Recipient’s confidentiality obligations may cause irreparable damage, which money cannot satisfactorily remedy, and therefore the Discloser may seek the remedies of injunction, specific performance and other equitable relief for any threatened or actual breach of clause 6.3 without the need to prove damages or post a bond or other surety.

A Customer Affiliate is not, and does not become, a party to the other parts of the Agreement by virtue of this clause 2.1, but only a party to this DPA.
2.2 Each Customer Affiliate agrees to be bound by the obligations of this DPA (including those of the Customer) to the extent that such obligations apply to its involvement (if any) in Processing Personal Data. The Customer shall wherever possible be responsible for communicating with Brightpearl, and co-ordinating relevant communications from Customer Affiliates ahead of communicating with Brightpearl, in relation to this DPA.
2.3 Where Brightpearl Affiliates are involved in the Processing of Personal Data, Brightpearl shall ensure that those Brightpearl Affiliates are bound by equivalent obligations to those contained in this DPA, including by way of an intra-group data processing agreement.
3. PROCESSING ROLES
3.1 The Parties agree that where the EU or UK Data Protection Laws apply to the Processing of Personal Data, the Customer is the Controller, and Brightpearl is the Processor, in relation to the Processing (which is more fully described in Schedule 1) and Brightpearl will act in accordance with the Customer’s documented instructions and in accordance with the Data Protection Laws in carrying out that Processing.
3.2 The Customer may alternatively be acting as a Processor under the EU or UK Data Protection Laws in Processing the Personal Data described in Schedule 1 on behalf of its own customers/other parties, in which case Brightpearl will be the Customer’s Sub-Processor, and the obligations in this DPA will apply to Brightpearl as a Sub-Processor.
4. CUSTOMER’S OBLIGATIONS
4.1 The Customer shall:
a. comply with; and
b.procure the compliance of Customer Affiliates, Users, other contacts of the Customer or Customer Affiliates, or third parties who may use the Services with,
the Data Protection Laws in Processing Personal Data ahead of sharing it in connection with the Services.
4.2 The Customer warrants on an ongoing basis that:
a. it has an appropriate lawful basis under the Data Protection Laws to share Personal Data with Brightpearl in connection with the Services; and
b. where it is acting as a Processor under EU or UK Data Protection Laws, the relevant Controller has authorised: (i) the Customer’s Personal Data Processing instructions to Brightpearl (as set out in this DPA); (ii) the Customer’s appointment of Brightpearl as a Sub-Processor; and (iii) Brightpearl ’s use of further Sub-Processors as described in Section 5 (Use of Sub-Processors).
4.3. The Customer further agrees that it shall:
a. as required by the Data Protection Laws, obtain any necessary consents and provide sufficient information to Data Subjects regarding the Processing of their Personal Data, or procure the same, for: (i) the Customer to share the Personal Data with Brightpearl or the Services; and (ii) Brightpearl to Process the Personal Data for the purposes set out in the Agreement and in accordance with the Data Protection Laws;
b. not do or cause Brightpearl to do anything which would put Brightpearl in breach of the Data Protection Laws or violate the rights of any Data Subject; and
c. provide reasonable assistance to Brightpearl in complying with Brightpearl ’s obligations under the Data Protection Laws, including by entering into any amendments or additions to this DPA which may be necessary to reflect any changes in the Customer’s, or Brightpearl’s, Personal Data Processing activities, or otherwise as required by the Data Protection Laws.
5. BRIGHTPEARL’S OBLIGATIONS
5.1 By entering into the Agreement including this DPA, the Customer is instructing Brightpearl to Process Personal Data to provide the Services and any related support to the Customer, as well as to inform improvements to Brightpearl’s products and services, carry out research, and further develop Brightpearl’s products. Brightpearl ’s Personal Data Processing activities for these purposes are more fully described in Schedule 1. The Customer further instructs Brightpearl to comply with Brightpearl’s Personal Data Processing obligations as a Processor (or Sub-Processor where the Customer is acting as a Processor) as set out in the rest of this DPA.
5.2 Brightpearl shall Process Personal Data only on the instructions from the Customer as set out in this DPA, unless Brightpearl is required to Process Personal Data by applicable law to which Brightpearl is subject, in which case Brightpearl shall inform the Customer of that legal requirement before Processing, unless the law prohibits this on important grounds of public interest. Brightpearl shall immediately inform the Customer if, in Brightpearl’s opinion, instructions given by the Customer infringe Data Protection Laws.
5.3 Brightpearl shall have in place at all times appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent any unauthorised or unlawful Processing, or accidental loss or destruction, of Personal Data, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation, the nature of the relevant Personal Data Processing, and the risk to the rights and freedoms of the relevant Data Subjects. Such security measures may include: (a) the pseudonymisation or encryption of Personal Data; (b) the ability to timely restore the availability and access to Personal Data in the event of an incident; (c) the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of Processing systems; and (d) a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures.
5.4 Brightpearl grants internal access to Personal Data only where strictly necessary, and ensures that persons authorised to Process the Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality.
USE OF SUB-PROCESSORS
5.5 The Customer hereby generally authorises Brightpearl’s use of Sub-Processors and Brightpearl’s list of criteria used to select and appoint a Sub-Processor which is as follows: (a) Brightpearl will conduct reasonable due diligence on the data privacy and security measures of proposed Sub-Processors before providing them with access to Personal Data; (b) Brightpearl will carry out data protection impact assessments ahead of appointing a Sub-Processor where any Processing of Personal Data by a Sub-Processor is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of Data Subjects; (c) as required under Data Protection Laws, Brightpearl will ensure that it puts in place a contract with any appointed Sub-Processor which imposes on the Sub-Processor, in substance, the same data protection obligations as imposed on Brightpearl in this DPA; and (d) Brightpearl shall keep its relationships with Sub-Processors under review and take any further steps as may be required under Data Protection Law or in relation to any changes to Customer’s or Brightpearl’s Personal Data Processing activities. Brightpearl shall remain fully responsible to the Customer for the performance of the Sub-Processor’s obligations under the Sub-Processor’s contract with Brightpearl.
5.6 Brightpearl’s current list of Sub-Processors is in Schedule 1. Brightpearl shall inform the Customer if Brightpearl wishes to make any changes to its criteria for choosing a Sub-Processor, and the Customer may reasonably object at any time to such changes or find out more information about Brightpearl’s use of Sub-Processors by contacting their Brightpearl representative, or using the contact information on the Brightpearl website.
5.7 Brightpearl will take any reasonable objection that it receives from the Customer in relation to a Brightpearl Sub-Processor, or Brightpearl’s criteria to appoint Sub-Processors, seriously, and will work with a Sub-Processor where necessary to address the Customer’s concern. If a solution cannot be found to the Customer’s concern, and it is not possible for Brightpearl to stop using a particular Sub-Processor, or to find an alternative Sub-Processor (none of which shall be considered a material breach of the Agreement by Brightpearl) the Customer may choose to terminate the Agreement in accordance with its termination provisions.
5.8 Brightpearl shall only carry out a Restricted Transfer in compliance with Data Protection Laws and shall implement appropriate safeguards to the extent necessary under Data Protection Laws (which may include Brightpearl’s intra-group Personal Data Processing agreements, or Brightpearl’s SCCs with third parties).
5.9 Where the EU Data Protection Laws or Swiss FDPA apply to a Restricted Transfer that occurs directly between the Customer and a Brightpearl Affiliate located in a Non-Adequate Country, and no other valid transfer mechanism applies to such transfer under Data Protection Laws, the EU C-P SCCs and/or EU P-P SCCs will apply (depending upon whether the Customer is a Controller or Processor).
5.10Where the UK Data Protection Laws apply to a Restricted Transfer that occurs directly between the Customer and a Brightpearl Affiliate located in a Non-Adequate Country, and no other valid transfer mechanism applies to such transfer under Data Protection Laws, the UK IDTA will apply.
5.11 Where the EU Data Protection Laws and UK Data Protection Laws both apply to Restricted Transfers that occur directly between the Customer and a Brightpearl Affiliate located in a Non-Adequate Country, and no other valid transfer mechanism applies to such transfers under Data Protection Laws, the SCCs stated in clause 5.9 together with the UK Addendum will apply.
5.12 Particulars in relation to the transfer mechanisms referred to in clauses 5.9 to 5.11 above are in Schedule 2.
PERSONAL DATA BREACH

5.20 Brightpearl shall not share, sell, rent, release, disclose, disseminate, make available, transfer, or otherwise communicate orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, Personal Data to another person or entity for: (a) monetary or other valuable consideration; or (b) cross-context behavioural advertising for the benefit of a business in which no money is exchanged.
5.21 At the end of Brightpearl’s provision of the Services, Brightpearl shall, at the choice of the Customer, delete or return to the Customer all Personal Data Processed by Brightpearl as a Processor/Sub-Processor on behalf of the Customer and delete existing copies unless Applicable Law requires storage of the Personal Data.
