Written by

A&B GENERAL LIMITED 

DATA PROTECTION ADDENDUM RELATING TO THE PARTIES’ OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE

GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION EU 2016/679 (“GDPR”)



1. Scope and Applicability 

1.1 This Data Protection Addendum (“Addendum”) supplements the Payment Gateway Terms and Conditions (“Agreement”) between the parties. Any provision of the Agreement that is incompatible with this Addendum or with applicable requirements of the GDPR shall be deemed null and void. The provisions of this Addendum shall replace Section 13 of the Agreement and supersede any other conflicting provisions of the Agreement. 

1.2 Part A applies in situations where we act as a processor for you and Part B applies in situations where we act as a controller, in each case, in relation to Personal Data that is exchanged between the parties concerning Customers and other data subjects. 
1.3 Capitalised terms not defined in the Agreement that are used in this Addendum shall have the meaning set out in Part C. 



Part A: Our obligations as a processor



2. Our obligations as processor 

2.1 We will act only on documented instructions from you (including in respect of any transfers of Personal Data outside the EU/EEA) unless the instructions require material changes to the Agreement. 

2.2 We shall ensure that all persons authorised to process Personal Data on your behalf in relation to the Services have committed themselves to confidentiality in respect of the data. 

2.3 We shall assist you, as far as is possible, in fulfilling your obligation to respond to the requests of data subjects seeking to exercise their rights under the GDPR, in so far as they relate to the provision of the Services. 

2.4 To ensure the security of the Personal Data that we process on your behalf, and to safeguard the rights of data subjects, we have put in place and will maintain technical and organisational measures appropriate to the risks associated with the Services. 

2.5 On receiving a written request, we shall assist you in meeting your GDPR obligations in relation to the following: 

(a) the security of the processing of Personal Data in relation to the Services; 

(b) the notification of Personal Data breaches where required; and 

(c) the conduct of data protection impact assessments, where necessary. 

2.6 Upon termination of the Agreement and your request, we shall either delete or return all Personal Data to you, unless we are legally obliged to keep such data. 

2.7 Upon request, we shall provide you with information necessary to demonstrate our compliance with the obligations set out in this Section 2, and shall allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted by you in relation to the processing activities connected to the provision of the Services. Your right to audit will be limited to once in any twelve-month period, and limited in time to a maximum of two (2) business days and scope, 

as reasonably agreed in advance between the parties. Reasonable advance notice of at least sixty (60) days is required, unless a Data Protection Law requires earlier audit. We will use current certifications or other audit reports to minimise unnecessary and repetitive audits. The parties will each bear their own expenses of audit, unless such audit reveals a breach by us (as independently verified by us), in which case we shall bear our own expenses of audit. If an audit determines that we have breached our obligations under the Agreement, we will promptly remedy the breach at our own cost. 


2.7 We will promptly inform you if we become aware of any suspected or confirmed Personal Data Breach involving Customer Personal Data. 

2.8 We shall immediately inform you if an instruction relating to Section 2.7 would, in our sole discretion, infringe the GDPR or other Data Protection Laws of the EU or an EU Member State having jurisdiction over the Agreement. 

2.9 We shall not engage any subprocessors to assist in providing the Services, unless we have: 

(a) entered into a written contract with the subprocessor that obligates the subprocessor to comply with all relevant obligations applicable to us under this Section 2; and 

(b) obtained prior written authorisation from you. 

2.10 A list of our existing subprocessors, their roles, and the location of the processing carried out by them is set out in the Schedule to this Addendum. By entering into this Addendum, you agree that we may use these subprocessors for the purposes of providing the Services. 

2.11 We will notify you in advance of any changes to the list of subprocessors. 

2.12 Subprocessors will have the same obligations as we do as a processor (or subprocessor) with regards to their processing of Personal Data. 



Part B: Obligations of the parties when we act as a data controller in relation to you


3. Compliance with the GDPR 


3.1 The parties acknowledge that each is an independent controller of the Personal Data that it collects and processes in relation to activities that are necessary for carrying out the contractual relationship between them. This Personal Data includes, for example, the business contact data of each party’s employees and other stakeholders exchanged for the purposes of entering into the Agreement, sending promotional material and managing the business relationship. 

3.2 Our Privacy Notice can be found at securetrading.com 



4. Mutual Cooperation 


4.1 The parties shall cooperate with one another, upon reasonable request, in relation to compliance with the provisions of the GDPR relating to the provision of the Services, including with regard to responses to data subject requests for the exercise of their rights under the GDPR and any information requests, investigations, complaints or other actions of a national data protection supervisory authority. 

4.2 Where each party is acting as a controller, each party shall notify the other of any incident that involves a Personal Data Breach that relates to the provision of the Services without undue delay. The notification should describe the incident, the type of Personal Data involved, the identity of any affected persons or the approximate number of individuals affected, the potential consequences of a breach, and any immediate mitigation steps required or in progress.
