2. Scope. This DPA applies to the Personal Data that TEVO receives from Client, or otherwise Processes for or on behalf of Client, through the ticket management services that TEVO provides under the Agreement (the “Services”).
3. Roles of the Parties; Client Responsibilities
a. Client acknowledges that it is either (i) using the Services as the lawful owner of a physical or virtual ticket allowing entry into an event (“Ticket”) and, therefore, is considered to be a “controller” or “business” under Data Privacy Laws and that TEVO is a “processor” or “service provider” under Data Privacy Laws; or (ii) using the Services as a “processor” or “service provider” under Data Privacy Laws, in which case TEVO acts as Client’s processor (i.e. subprocessor) or service provider.
b. Client will comply with all applicable laws, including that it will establish legal bases for its and TEVO’s Processing of Personal Data and obtain any consents required under Data Privacy Laws for TEVO to Process the Personal Data and provide the Services.
4. Purposes of Processing
a. TEVO will Process Personal Data solely: (1) to fulfill its obligations to Client under the Agreement, including this DPA; (2) on Client’s behalf; and (3) in compliance with Data Privacy Laws. Except as explicitly permitted by Data Privacy Laws, TEVO will:
i. not retain, use, or disclose the Personal Data outside of the direct business relationship between Client and TEVO except as explicitly permitted by Data Privacy Laws;
ii. not “sell” or “share” any Personal Data, as such terms are defined in applicable U.S. Privacy Laws, to any third party;
iii. not attempt to re-identify any pseudonymized, anonymized, aggregate, or de-identified Personal Data without Client’s express written permission;
iv. not attempt to link, identify, or otherwise create a relationship between Personal Data and non-Personal Data or any other data without the express authorization of Client;
v. comply with any applicable restrictions under Data Privacy Laws on combining the Personal Data with personal data that TEVO receives from, or on behalf of, another person or persons, or that TEVO collects from any interaction between it and any individual;
vi. provide the same level of protection for the Personal Data as is required under Data Privacy Laws applicable to Client;
vii. not otherwise engage in any Processing of the Personal Data that is prohibited or not permitted by “processors” or “service providers” under Data Privacy Laws; and
viii. promptly notify Client if TEVO determines that (a) it can no longer meet its obligations under this DPA or Data Privacy Laws; or (b) it has breached this DPA, and shall cooperate to remediate such breach; or (c) in TEVO’s opinion, an instruction from Client infringes Data Privacy Laws.
b. Client retains the right, upon notice, to take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized use of Personal Data, including any use of Personal Data not expressly authorized in this DPA.
5. Personal Data Processing Requirements. TEVO will:
a. Ensure that the persons TEVO authorizes to Process the Personal Data are subject to a written confidentiality agreement covering such data or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
b. Assist Client by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfillment of Client’s obligation to honor requests by individuals (or their representatives) to exercise their rights under the Data Privacy Laws (such as rights to access or delete their Personal Data).
c. Notify Client of (i) any third-party or Data Subject complaints regarding the Processing of Personal Data; or (ii) any government or Data Subject requests for access to or information about TEVO’s Processing of Personal Data, unless prohibited by applicable law. If TEVO receives a third-party, Data Subject, or governmental request, TEVO will, subject to legal obligations, await written instructions from Client on how, if at all, to assist in responding to the request. TEVO will provide Client with reasonable cooperation and assistance in relation to any such request.
d. Assist Client in its performance of a data protection impact assessment of Processing or proposed Processing of Personal Data, when required by applicable Data Privacy Laws, by providing Client with access to documentation for the Services. Additional support for data protection impact assessments will require a statement of work and mutual agreement on fees, the scope of TEVO’s involvement, and any other terms that the parties deem appropriate.
e. Assist Client in its consultation with regulatory authorities in relation to the Processing or proposed Processing of Personal Data, including complying with any obligation applicable to TEVO under Data Privacy Laws to consult with a regulatory authority in relation to TEVO’s Processing or proposed Processing of Personal Data, by providing Client with access to documentation for the Services. Additional support for consultation with regulators is available at Client expense and will require a statement of work and mutual agreement on fees, the scope of TEVO’s involvement, and any other terms that the parties deem appropriate.
6. Subprocessors. TEVO may subcontract the collection or other Processing of Personal Data only in compliance with Data Privacy Laws and any additional conditions for subcontracting set forth in the Agreement. Prior to a Subprocessor’s Processing of Personal Data, TEVO will impose contractual obligations on the Subprocessor that are substantially the same as those imposed on TEVO under this DPA. A current list of Subprocessors for the services Client obtains under the Agreement is set forth as Exhibit C. Subject to Client’s registration of an email address to receive notices (to be sent to TEVO at email@example.com ), TEVO will provide Client with at least fifteen (15) days’ notice of any new Subprocessor added to the list prior to transferring Personal Data to such new Subprocessor; provided, however, TEVO may provide a shorter notice period where new Subprocessors are necessary for security purposes. TEVO remains responsible for its Subprocessors and liable for their performance under the Agreement and this DPA. This paragraph constitutes Client’s consent to both TEVO’s use of the Subprocessors and its subprocessing under the EU SCCs and UK SCCs, as applicable.
a. TEVO will assist Client in ensuring Client’s compliance with the security obligations of the GDPR and other Data Privacy Laws, as relevant to TEVO’s role in Processing the Personal Data, taking into account the nature of Processing and the information available to TEVO, by complying with this Section 7 and, if available in the Services, by providing configurable security options.
b. To protect the Personal Data, TEVO shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures that comply with Exhibit B, without prejudice to TEVO’s right to make future updates to the measures that do not lower the level of protection of Personal Data.
c. Client is solely responsible for reviewing the available security documentation and evaluating for itself whether the Services and related security will meet Client’s needs, including Client’s security obligations under Data Privacy Laws. Client agrees that the security commitments in this DPA will provide a level of security appropriate to the risk in respect of the Personal Data.
8. Personal Data Breach Notification. TEVO will comply with the Personal Data Breach-related obligations directly applicable to it under the GDPR and other Data Privacy Laws. Taking into account the nature of Processing and the information available to TEVO, TEVO will assist Client in complying with those obligations applicable to Client by informing Client of a confirmed Personal Data Breach without undue delay.
