(h) to make available to the data subjects upon request a copy of the Clauses, with the exception of Appendix 2, and a summary description of the security measures, as well as a copy of any contract for subprocessing services which has to be made in accordance with the Clauses, unless the Clauses or the contract contain commercial information, in which case it may remove such commercial information;
(i) that, in the event of subprocessing, the processing activity is carried out in accordance with Clause 11 by a subprocessor providing at least the same level of Processing for the personal data and the rights of data subject as the data importer under the Clauses; and
(j) that it will ensure compliance with Clause 4(a) to (i).
Obligations of the data importer
The data importer agrees and warrants:
(a) to process the personal data only on behalf of the data exporter and in compliance with its instructions and the Clauses; if it cannot provide such compliance for whatever reasons, it agrees to inform promptly the data exporter of its inability to comply, in which case the data exporter is entitled to suspend the transfer of data and/or terminate the contract;
(b) that it has no reason to believe that the legislation applicable to it prevents it from fulfilling the instructions received from the data exporter and its obligations under the contract and that in the event of a change in this legislation which is likely to have a substantial adverse effect on the warranties and obligations provided by the Clauses, it will promptly notify the change to the data exporter as soon as it is aware, in which case the data exporter is entitled to suspend the transfer of data and/or terminate the contract;
(c) that it has implemented the technical and organisational security measures specified in Appendix 2 before processing the personal data transferred;
(d) that it will promptly notify the data exporter about:
(i) any legally binding request for disclosure of the personal data by a law enforcement authority unless otherwise prohibited, such as a prohibition under criminal law to preserve the confidentiality of a law enforcement investigation,
(ii) any accidental or unauthorised access, and
(iii) any request received directly from the data subjects without responding to that request, unless it has been otherwise authorised to do so;
(e) to deal promptly and properly with all inquiries from the data exporter relating to its processing of the personal data subject to the transfer and to abide by the advice of the supervisory authority with regard to the processing of the data transferred;
(f) at the request of the data exporter to submit its data processing facilities for audit of the processing activities covered by the Clauses which shall be carried out by the data exporter or an inspection body composed of independent members and in possession of the required professional qualifications bound by a duty of confidentiality, selected by the data exporter, where applicable, in agreement with the supervisory authority;
(g) to make available to the data subject upon request a copy of the Clauses, or any existing contract for subprocessing, unless the Clauses or contract contain commercial information, in which case it may remove such commercial information, with the exception of Appendix 2 which shall be replaced by a summary description of the security measures in those cases where the data subject is unable to obtain a copy from the data exporter;
(h) that, in the event of subprocessing, it has previously informed the data exporter and obtained its prior written consent;
(i) that the processing services by the subprocessor will be carried out in accordance with Clause 11;
(j) to send promptly a copy of any subprocessor agreement it concludes under the Clauses to the data exporter.
1. The parties agree that any data subject, who has suffered damage as a result of any breach of the obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 by any party or subprocessor is entitled to receive compensation from the data exporter for the damage suffered.
2. If a data subject is not able to bring a claim for compensation in accordance with paragraph 1 against the data exporter, arising out of a breach by the data importer or his subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11, because the data exporter has factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent, the data importer agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data importer as if it were the data exporter, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by contract of by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity.
The data importer may not rely on a breach by a subprocessor of its obligations in order to avoid its own liabilities.
3. If a data subject is not able to bring a claim against the data exporter or the data importer referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2, arising out of a breach by the subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 because both the data exporter and the data importer have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, the subprocessor agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data subprocessor with regard to its own processing operations under the Clauses as if it were the data exporter or the data importer, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
Mediation and jurisdiction
1. The data importer agrees that if the data subject invokes against it third-party beneficiary rights and/or claims compensation for damages under the Clauses, the data importer will accept the decision of the data subject:
(a) to refer the dispute to mediation, by an independent person or, where applicable, by the supervisory authority;
(b) to refer the dispute to the courts in the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
2. The parties agree that the choice made by the data subject will not prejudice its substantive or procedural rights to seek remedies in accordance with other provisions of national or international law.
Cooperation with supervisory authorities
1. The data exporter agrees to deposit a copy of this contract with the supervisory authority if it so requests or if such deposit is required under the applicable data Processing law.
2. The parties agree that the supervisory authority has the right to conduct an audit of the data importer, and of any subprocessor, which has the same scope and is subject to the same conditions as would apply to an audit of the data exporter under the applicable data Processing law.
3. The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter about the existence of legislation applicable to it or any subprocessor preventing the conduct of an audit of the data importer, or any subprocessor, pursuant to paragraph 2. In such a case the data exporter shall be entitled to take the measures foreseen in Clause 5 (b).
The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
Variation of the contract
The parties undertake not to vary or modify the Clauses. This does not preclude the parties from adding clauses on business related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Clause.
1. The data importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the data exporter under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the data exporter. Where the data importer subcontracts its obligations under the Clauses, with the consent of the data exporter, it shall do so only by way of a written agreement with the subprocessor which imposes the same obligations on the subprocessor as are imposed on the data importer under the Clauses. Where the subprocessor fails to fulfil its data Processing obligations under such written agreement the data importer shall remain fully liable to the data exporter for the performance of the subprocessor’s obligations under such agreement.
2. The prior written contract between the data importer and the subprocessor shall also provide for a third-party beneficiary clause as laid down in Clause 3 for cases where the data subject is not able to bring the claim for compensation referred to in paragraph 1 of Clause 6 against the data exporter or the data importer because they have factually disappeared or have ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent and no successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law. Such third-party liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
3. The provisions relating to data Processing aspects for subprocessing of the contract referred to in paragraph 1 shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
4. The data exporter shall keep a list of subprocessing agreements concluded under the Clauses and notified by the data importer pursuant to Clause 5 (j), which shall be updated at least once a year. The list shall be available to the data exporter’s data Processing supervisory authority.
Obligation after the termination of personal data processing services
1. The parties agree that on the termination of the provision of data processing services, the data importer and the subprocessor shall, at the choice of the data exporter, return all the personal data transferred and the copies thereof to the data exporter or shall destroy all the personal data and certify to the data exporter that it has done so, unless legislation imposed upon the data importer prevents it from returning or destroying all or part of the personal data transferred. In that case, the data importer warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data transferred and will not actively process the personal data transferred anymore.
2. The data importer and the subprocessor warrant that upon request of the data exporter and/or of the supervisory authority, it will submit its data processing facilities for an audit of the measures referred to in paragraph 1.
This Appendix forms part of the Standard Contractual Clauses.
The data that CRDN collects from users is detailed in the Terms and Conditions and Data Processing Addendum. This data allows CRDN to provide our services to the user; to communicate with the user about his or her requested services (including technical assistance and account reminders); and CRDN may share this data with third parties (a list of which can be found in Exhibit 2 below) to assist CRDN in providing requested services to the user.
CRDN may transfer some user data in the ordinary course of its business as outlined in the Data Processing Addendum. Such transfers may include, but are not necessarily limited to, transfers of data for billing purposes and to provide CRDN’s products and services as requested. Any data that is transferred is done so securely, using, at a minimum, industry “best practice” standards.
User data is retained and stored for as long as necessary to service the Data Subject. Identifying and non-identifying statistical usage data for users may be retained indefinitely. There is no requirement for users to submit their data to us, but if they choose not to submit their data, CRDN’s ability to provide users with our services might be limited, or all together impossible.
In addition to using user data for the above purposes, CRDN also uses “cookies” which are necessary for functionality of the website. These “cookies” do not store any personal data.
Users may withdraw their consent for CRDN to use their data at any time by contacting CRDN and stating that they wish to withdraw their consent to use their data.
This Appendix forms part of the Standard Contractual Clauses.
Description of the technical and organizational security measures implemented by the data importer in accordance with Clauses 4(d) and 5(c):
CRDN currently observes the security practices described in this Appendix 2. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary otherwise agreed to by data exporter, CRDN may modify or update these practices at its discretion provided that such modification and update does not result in a material degradation in the Processing offered by these practices. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings as set forth in the DPA.
A) Access Control
i) Preventing Unauthorized Product Access
Outsourced processing: CRDN hosts its Service with outsourced data centers and cloud infrastructure providers. Additionally, CRDN maintains contractual relationships with vendors in order to provide the Service in accordance with our Data Processing Agreement. CRDN relies on contractual agreements, privacy policies, and vendor compliance programs in order to protect data processed or stored by these vendors.
Physical and environmental security: CRDN hosts its processing infrastructure with multi-tenant, outsourced infrastructure providers. The physical and environmental security controls are audited for HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and SSAE-18 SOC 2 Type II/SOC 3 compliance.
Authentication: CRDN implemented a uniform password policy for its partner products. Partners who interact with the products via the user interface must authenticate before accessing non-public customer data.
Authorization: Customer data is stored in multi-tenant storage systems accessible to Partners via only application user interfaces and application programming interfaces. Partners are not allowed direct access to the underlying application infrastructure. The authorization model in each of CRDN’s services is designed to ensure that only the appropriately assigned individuals can access relevant features, views, and customization options. Authorization to data sets is performed through validating the user’s permissions against the attributes associated with each data set.
Application Programming Interface (API) access: Product APIs may be accessed using an API key.
ii) Preventing Unauthorized Use
CRDN implements industry standard access controls and detection capabilities for the internal networks that support its products.
Access controls: Network access control mechanisms are designed to prevent network traffic using unauthorized protocols from reaching the product infrastructure. The technical measures implemented differ between infrastructure providers and include Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) implementations, security group assignment, and traditional firewall rules.
Intrusion detection and prevention: CRDN implemented a Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution to protect hosted customer data and other internet-accessible applications. The WAF is designed to identify and prevent attacks against publicly available network services.
Static code analysis: Security reviews of code stored in CRDN’s source code repositories is performed, checking for coding best practices and identifiable software flaws.
Penetration testing: CRDN maintains relationships with industry recognized penetration testing service providers for four annual penetration tests. The intent of the penetration tests is to identify and resolve foreseeable attack vectors and potential abuse scenarios.
iii) Limitations of Privilege & Authorization Requirements
Product access: A subset of CRDN’s employees have access to the products and to customer data via controlled interfaces. The intent of providing access to a subset of employees is to provide effective partner support, to troubleshoot potential problems, to detect and respond to security incidents and implement data security. Employees are granted access by role, and reviews of high risk privilege grants are initiated daily. Employee roles are reviewed at least once every six months. All employees are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with company guidelines, non-disclosure requirements, and ethical standards.
B) Transmission Control
In-transit: CRDN makes HTTPS encryption (also referred to as SSL or TLS) available on every one of its login interfaces and for free on every customer and partner site hosted on the CRDN products. CRDN’s HTTPS implementation uses industry standard algorithms and certificates.
At-rest: CRDN stores user passwords following policies that follow industry standard practices for security.
C) Input Control
Detection: CRDN designed its infrastructure to log information about the system behavior, system authentication, and other application requests. Internal systems aggregated log data and alert appropriate employees of malicious, unintended, or anomalous activities. CRDN personnel, including security, operations, and support personnel, are responsive to known incidents.
Response and tracking: CRDN maintains a record of known security incidents that includes description, dates and times of relevant activities, and incident disposition. Suspected and confirmed security incidents are investigated by security, operations, or support personnel; and appropriate resolution steps are identified and documented. For any confirmed incidents, CRDN will take appropriate steps to minimize product and Customer damage or unauthorized disclosure.
Communication: If CRDN becomes aware of unlawful access to Customer data stored within its products, CRDN will: 1) notify the affected Partners of the incident; 2) provide a description of the steps CRDN is taking to resolve the incident; and 3) provide status updates to the Customer contact, as CRDN deems necessary. Notification(s) of incidents, if any, will be delivered to one or more of the Customer’s contacts in a form CRDN selects, which may include via email or telephone.
D) Availability Control
Infrastructure availability: The infrastructure providers use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure a minimum of 99.95% uptime. The providers maintain a minimum of N+1 redundancy to power, network, and HVAC services.
Fault tolerance: Backup and replication strategies are designed to ensure redundancy and fail-over Processings during a significant processing failure. Customer data is backed up to multiple durable data stores and replicated across multiple availability zones.
Online replicas and backups: Where feasible, production databases are designed to replicate data between no less than 1 primary and 1 secondary database. All databases are backed up and maintained using at least industry standard methods.
CRDN’s products are designed to ensure redundancy. The server instances that support the products are also architected with a goal to prevent single points of failure. This design assists CRDN operations in maintaining and updating the product applications and backend while limiting downtime.
