    All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Agreement or the Applicable Data Processing Law, as applicable.

    1. Applicable Data Protection Law means all applicable international, federal, national and state privacy and data protection laws that apply to the processing of Personal Data that is the subject matter of the Agreement (including, where applicable, European Data Protection Law and the CCPA).

    2. CCPA means the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, Cal. Civil Code § 1798.100 et seq.

Security Breach means a breach of security relating to Personal Data where there is an unlawful or unauthorized use or acquisition of Personal Data due to GoodData's failure to comply with the GoodData Security Program with respect to the Subscription or Support Services for systems entirely controlled by GoodData. The term Security Breach always excludes: (a) unsuccessful attempts to penetrate computer networks or servers maintained by or for GoodData; and (b) immaterial incidents that occur on a routine basis, such as security scans, brute-force attempts or "denial of service" attacks.

    8. Standard Contractual Clauses means the annex found in EU Commission Decision of 5 February 2010 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries under Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (available as of the Effective Date at Attached hereto are Appendices 1 and 2 to the Standard Contractual Clauses and such Appendices are hereby incorporated by reference to the Standard Contractual Clauses. Parties agree that Standard Contractual Clauses shall be governed by the law of a Member State where EU Data Protection Laws apply.


    1. Relationship of the Parties. As between the Parties, You are the Controller and appoint GoodData as a Processor to process the Personal Data.

    2. Purpose Limitation. GoodData shall process the Personal Data as a Processor only for the purposes described in Appendix 1 to the Standard Contractual Clauses, and in accordance with Your documented instructions (the "Permitted Purpose"). You agree and acknowledge that You will confer with GoodData and will obtain GoodData's prior written consent before You load any Personal Data deemed to be included in "Special Categories of Personal Data" under GDPR (e.g. data consisting of racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person's sex life or sexual orientation) onto GoodData's platform.

    3. International transfers of Personal Data. GoodData will at all times provide an adequate level of protection for the Personal Data, wherever processed, in accordance with the requirements of Applicable Data Protection Law. To the extent that Personal Data originating from the European Economic Area (EEA) will be processed in a territory which has not been designated by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection or a territory that is not subject to a bilateral arrangement that provides a legal basis for Personal Data transfers and with which GoodData complies, both Parties will comply with the obligations in the Standard Contractual Clauses (including its Appendices), which shall form an integral part of this Addendum. In the event of any conflict between the Standard Contractual Clauses and this Addendum, the Standard Contractual Clauses shall control and supersede.

    4. Confidentiality of Processing. GoodData shall keep strictly confidential all Personal Data that it processes on behalf of You. GoodData shall ensure that any person that it authorises to process the Personal Data (including GoodData's affiliates and their staff, agents and subcontractors) (an "Authorised Person") shall be subject to a strict duty of confidentiality (whether a contractual duty or a statutory duty), and shall not permit any person to process the Personal Data who is not under such a duty of confidentiality. GoodData shall ensure that only Authorised Persons will process the Personal Data, and that such processing shall be limited to the extent necessary to achieve the Permitted Purpose. GoodData accepts responsibility for any breach of this Addendum caused by the act, error or omission of an Authorised Person.

    5. Prohibition on Selling Information of California residents. For avoidance of doubt, GoodData is a Service Provider and not a Third Party as defined by the CCPA. Therefore, GoodData shall not: (i) sell the Personal Data, (ii) retain, use, or disclose the Personal Data for any purpose other than providing the services specified in the Agreement or for a Business Purpose. Specifically, GoodData shall not retain, use, or disclose the Personal Data for a Commercial Purpose, or (iii) retain, use, or disclose the Personal Data outside of the direct business relationship between GoodData and You. Notwithstanding anything in the Addendum or any related order form or other document, the Parties acknowledge and agree that Your provision of access to Personal Data is not part of and explicitly excluded from the exchange of consideration, or any other thing of value, between the Parties.

    6. Security. GoodData shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the Personal Data from a Security Breach. At a minimum, such measures shall include the security measures identified in Appendix 2 to the Standard Contractual Clauses, and as further described in the Documentation. Where there is an unlawful or unauthorized use or acquisition of Personal Data in systems entirely controlled by GoodData, or GoodData discovers any unauthorized use or acquisition of Personal Data in any third party systems that are processing Personal Data on GoodData's behalf, GoodData will promptly notify You of such breach and promptly investigate.

    7. Subprocessing. GoodData shall not subcontract any processing of the Personal Data to a third party ("Subprocessor") without Your prior written consent.

We encourage You to periodically review such GoodData site for the latest information on GoodData Subprocessor practices, and especially before You provide GoodData with any Personal Data. Your continued use of a GoodData site after any changes or revisions to the Subprocessor list have been published shall indicate Your agreement with the terms of such revised list. If You object to GoodData's appointment of a new Subprocessor on reasonable grounds relating to the protection of Your Personal Data, then either GoodData will not appoint the Subprocessor or the Parties will promptly confer and discuss alternative arrangements to enable GoodData to continued processing of Personal Data. In all cases, GoodData shall impose the same data protection obligation on any Subprocessor it appoints as those provided for by this Addendum and GoodData shall remain liable for any breach of this Addendum that is caused by an act, error or omission of its Subprocessor to the extent it is liable for its own acts and omissions under the Agreement.

    8. Cooperation and Individuals' Rights. To extent You are unable to directly respond to a privacy inquiry made by a Data Subject itself, GoodData shall then provide all reasonable and timely assistance to You to enable You to respond to: (i) any request from Data Subject to exercise any of its rights under Applicable Data Protection Law; and (ii) any other correspondence, enquiry or complaint received from an individual, regulator, court or other third party in connection with the processing of the Personal Data. In the event that any such communication is made directly to GoodData, GoodData shall promptly inform You providing full details of the same and shall not respond to the communication unless specifically required by law or authorized by You.

    9. Data Protection Impact Assessment. If GoodData believes or becomes aware that its processing of the Personal Data is likely to result in a high risk to the data protection rights and freedoms of individuals, it shall promptly inform You of the same. GoodData shall provide You with all such reasonable and timely assistance as You may require in order to conduct a data protection impact assessment, and, if necessary, to consult with its relevant data protection authority.

    10. Security Breach. Upon becoming aware of a Security Breach, GoodData shall inform You without undue delay and shall provide all such timely information and cooperation as You may reasonably require in order for You to fulfill Your data breach reporting obligations under (and in accordance with the timescales required by) Applicable Data Protection Law and relevant contractual obligations owed by You to Your Users. GoodData shall further take all such measures and actions as are necessary to remedy or mitigate the effects of the Security Breach and shall keep You informed of all developments in connection with the Security Breach. GoodData shall not notify any third parties of a Security Breach unless and to the extent that: (a) You have agreed to such notification, and/or (b) notification is required to be made by GoodData under Applicable Data Protection Laws.

    11. Deletion or Return of Data. Upon termination or expiry of the Agreement, GoodData shall (at Your election) destroy or enable You to retrieve all Data (including all copies of the Personal Data) in its possession or control (including any Personal Data subcontracted to a third party for processing). Unless agreed to otherwise by the Parties, GoodData shall enable You to retrieve Your Personal Data within thirty (30) days of Your request. GoodData shall delete all Personal Data within the GoodData platform within ninety (90) days of the termination of this Addendum or the Agreement, or upon Your written request. This requirement shall not apply to the extent that GoodData is required by applicable law to retain some or all of the Personal Data, in which event GoodData shall isolate and protect the Personal Data from any further processing except to the extent required by such law.

    12. Compliance Assessments. No more than once per year, solely for the purpose of meeting its audit requirements under Article 28, section 3(h) of the GDPR or its obligations under 5(f) and 12(2) of the Standard Contract Clauses, You may request an audit in writing. GoodData shall then permit You (or its appointed third-party auditors) to review GoodData's SOC-2, Type II or similar audit report and relevant security and compliance documentation, including but not limited to self-assessment questionnaires and security testing results. GoodData shall also respond to any written audit questions submitted to it by You. You will be entitled to this information once in any twelve (12) calendar month period, except if and when required by the instruction of a competent data protection authority. The You agree that these reports and other documentation will be used as the primary and only mechanism to audit and inspect GoodData's processing activities, unless You are required to perform an on-site audit by the applicable data protection authority, or if GoodData materially fails to comply with GDPR negatively impacting Your Personal Data.

      1. Any audit must be requested with at least thirty (30) days prior notice and include a detailed audit plan that describes the proposed scope, duration, reimbursement rates, and start date of the audit which the Parties must mutually agree upon prior to the commencement of an audit.

      5. For all audits, You must immediately notify GoodData with information regarding any suspected or actual non-compliance revealed during an audit.
