In addition to the extent, the Controller, in its use of the Services, does not have the ability to address the data subject request, the Processor shall, upon the Controller’s request, provide commercially reasonable efforts to assist the Controller in responding to such data subject request, to the extent the Processor is legally permitted to do so and the response to such data subject request is required under the Applicable Data Protection Law. To the extent legally permitted, the Controller shall be responsible for any costs arising from the Processor’s provision of such assistance, including any fees associated with provision of additional functionality.

4.2. The Controller’s rights under processing of personal data

The Processor will, in a manner consistent with the functionality of the Service or per request, enable the Controller to access, rectify and restrict processing of personal data.

The Controller acknowledges and agrees that the Processor may engage third-party sub-processors in connection with the provision of the Services. As a condition to permitting a third-party sub-processor to process personal data, the Processor will enter into a written agreement with each sub-processor containing data protection obligations that provide at least the same level of protection for personal data as those in this DPA, to the extent applicable to the nature of the Agreement provided by such sub-processor. In either case, the Controller agrees to enter into the Standard Contractual Clauses where necessary acknowledging that sub-processors may be appointed by the Processor in accordance with Clause 11 of Standard Contractual Clauses.

5.2. A current list of sub-processors

A current list of sub-processors for the Agreement, is accessible by the following link: https://searchadshq.com/legal/subprocessors/.

The Controller may reasonably object to the Processor using a new sub-processor (e.g., if making personal data available to the sub-processor may violate the Applicable Data Protection Law or weaken the protections for such personal data) by notifying the Processor promptly in writing within five (5) business days after receipt of the Processor’s notice in accordance with the mechanism set out in Section 5.2. Such notice shall explain the reasonable grounds for the objection. In the event the Controller objects to a new sub-processor, as permitted in the preceding sentence, the Processor will use commercially reasonable efforts to make available to the Processor a change in the Agreement or recommend a commercially reasonable change to the Controller’s configuration or use of the Agreement to avoid processing of personal data by the objected new sub-processor without unreasonably burdening the Controller. If the Processor is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period of time, which shall not exceed thirty (30) calendar days, either party may terminate without penalty the applicable Agreement which cannot be provided by the Processor without the use of the objected new sub-processor by providing written notice to the Processor.
