11. ARBITRATION, CLASS-ACTION WAIVER, AND JURY WAIVER
11.1. Arbitration. If you pursue a legal claim against us, you agreess to arbitration (with limited exceptions). Therefore, the exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to the Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof) or the Services shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by JAMS under the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that either party has the right to bring an individual claim against the other in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction, or, if filed in arbitration, the responding party may request that the dispute proceed in small claims court if the party’s claim is within the jurisdiction of the small claims court. If the responding party requests to proceed in small claims court before the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitration shall be administratively closed, and if requested after the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitrator shall determine if the dispute should be decided in arbitration or if the arbitration should be administratively closed and decided in small claims court. Whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against us any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.
11.2. Waiver. By using the Services in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and Status (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY, and the arbitrator shall determine all issues regarding the arbitrability of the dispute. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you understand that arbitration proceedings are different from trials and other judicial proceedings, and that decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
11.3. Enforcement. Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction.

13.6. Waiver.

Neither party shall assign the Agreement or any of its rights and obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the other party; provided, however, that either party may assign the Agreement and all of its rights and obligations hereunder to an affiliate or as part of a merger or sale of substantially all the assets or stock of such party.

Status Data Processing Agreement
Effective Date: September 19, 2022
Last Updated on: September 19, 2022
STATUS DATA PROCESSING AGREEMENT
NOTE: This Data Processing Agreement is only applicable in the event that you want Status to process Personal Data that requires such agreement, and only if separately agreed to by Status in writing.
This Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”) constitutes a legally binding agreement between you and Status. You are required to read this DPA carefully as this DPA forms an integral part of our Terms of Service. We may make changes and updates to this DPA at any time, and it is your responsibility to review this DPA for any such changes when you access the Services. By using or accessing the Services, you agree to this DPA and represent and warrant that you have the authority to agree to this DPA, either on behalf of yourself or on behalf of the entity you represent.
HOW THIS DPA APPLIES
This DPA is only valid and legally binding if you are using the Services and are a Controller to which Article 3 of the GDPR applies. Status is a party to this DPA for the sole purpose of complying with any obligations that are expressly stated to be Status obligations in this DPA, including assisting you to comply with its legal obligations under applicable Data Protection Legislation with respect to Personal Data that Status processes when providing the Services to you.
“CCPA” means the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 and its regulations.
“Controller”, “data subject”, “personal data”, “personal data breach,” “process”, “processing”, “processor”, and “supervisory authority” have the same meanings as in the GDPR.
“Customer” means you, and if the Services are being used on behalf of an entity by an individual authorized to agree to such terms on behalf of such entity, then “Customer” includes you and such entity, as well as Users authorized by such entity and any Customer affiliates.
“Data Protection Legislation” means all data protection laws and regulations, including laws and regulations of the European Union, the European Economic Area (EEA) and their member states, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, applicable to the processing of Personal Data under the Agreement, as amended or replaced from time to time, including without limitation the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (the “GDPR”).
“Personal Data” means personal data that is submitted to the Services by Customer and processed by Status for the purposes of providing the Services to Customer. The types of Personal Data and the specific uses of the Personal Data are detailed in Exhibit A below.
“Services” has the meaning given in the Terms of Service.
“Standard Contractual Clauses” or “Clauses” means (i) for transfers of Personal Data from the EEA and Switzerland, the Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission pursuant to its Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021 (including all modules governing controller to processor transfers of personal data) or any such clauses amending, replacing or superseding those by a European Commission decision or by a legally binding decision made by any other authorized body which are attached hereto as Attachment 1, and (ii) for transfers of Personal Data from the United Kingdom, the Standard Contractual Clauses for controllers to processors published by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) at https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/international-transfers-after-uk-exit/sccs-after-transition-period/, or such successor Standard Contractual Clauses as are published by ICO.
2. DATA PROCESSING
2.1 Roles of the Parties. The parties acknowledge and agree that with regard to the processing of Personal Data for the provision of the Services, Customer is the Controller and Status is the Processor.
2.2 Processing of Personal Data. Status may process Personal Data on behalf of Customer as part the provision of the Services to Customer. Status will process Personal Data as follows:
Status will comply with applicable Data Protection Legislation;
Status will implement appropriate technical, administrative, physical and organizational measures to adequately safeguard and protect the security and confidentiality of Personal Data against accidental, unauthorized or unlawful destruction, alteration, modification, processing, disclosure, loss, or access;
Status will process the Personal Data only in accordance with any documented Customer instructions received by Status with respect to the processing of such Personal Data and in a manner necessary for the provision of the Services by Status which will, for the avoidance of doubt, include processing in accordance with this DPA and the Agreement;
Status will ensure that persons authorized to process Personal Data on behalf of Status have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality;
Status will assist Customer by appropriate technical and organization measures for the fulfillment of Customer’s obligations to respond to requests for exercising a data subject’s rights with respect to Personal Data under Chapter III of the GDPR;
Status will promptly inform Customer if in its opinion compliance with any Customer instruction would infringe Data Protection Legislation;
Status will assist Customer in complying with its obligations with respect to Personal Data pursuant to Articles 32 to 36 of the GDPR;
Status will, at Customer’s option, and subject to the terms of this DPA (i) delete or return all Personal Data to Customer after the end of the provision of the Services, and (ii) delete existing copies of Personal Data unless applicable law of the EU or an EU member state requires retention of the Personal Data;
Status will make available to Customer all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with its obligations as a Processor as specified in Article 28 of the GDPR, and allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted by Customer or another auditor mandated by Customer, consistent with Section 8 of this DPA;
Status will maintain a record of all categories of processing activities carried out on behalf of Customer in accordance with Article 30(2) of the GDPR; and
Status and its representatives will cooperate, on request, with the relevant supervisory authority in providing the Services.
Status will act as Customer’s “service provider,” as that term is defined in the CCPA. In particular, Status will not: (i) “sell” (as defined in the CCPA) Personal Data or (ii) collect, retain, use, or disclose Personal Data for any purpose other than for the specific purpose of performing the Services, including collecting, retaining, using, or disclosing Personal Data for any commercial purposes other than providing the Services, unless otherwise permitted under the CCPA (e.g., for Status’s internal use to build or improve the quality of its services, to detect data security incidents, or to protect against fraudulent or illegal acts).
2.3 Customer Responsibilities. Customer will, in its use of the Services, process Personal Data in accordance with the requirements of applicable Data Protection Legislation. For the avoidance of doubt, Customer’s instructions to Status for the processing of Personal Data will comply with applicable Data Protection Legislation. Customer will have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, and legality of Personal Data and for ensuring that the Personal Data was lawfully acquired by Customer (including any authorizations or consents if required). Customer shall ensure that Customer is entitled to transfer the relevant Personal Data to Status so that Status and its Sub-processors (as defined in Section 5.1 of this DPA) may lawfully use, process and transfer the Personal Data in accordance with this DPA and the Agreement on Customer’s behalf as a Processor.
2.4 Processing Instructions. Customer instructs Status to process Personal Data for the following purposes: (a) processing necessary for the provision of the Services and in accordance with the Agreement; (b) processing initiated by Customer’s end users in their use of the Services; and (c) processing to comply with the other reasonable written instructions provided by Customer to Status (e.g., via email or via support requests) where such instructions are consistent with the terms of the Agreement, as required to comply with applicable Data Protection Legislation, or as otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in writing. For the purposes of Clause 5(a) of the Standard Contractual Clauses, the foregoing is deemed an instruction by the data exporter to process Personal Data. The parties agree that the certification of deletion of Personal Data that is described in Clause 12(1) of the Standard Contractual Clauses shall be provided by Status to Customer upon Customer’s written request.
3. RIGHTS OF DATA SUBJECTS
Status shall, to the extent legally permitted, promptly notify Customer if Status receives a request from a data subject to exercise the data subject's right of access, right to rectification, restriction of processing, erasure (“right to be forgotten”), data portability, objection to the processing, or its right not to be subject to an automated individual decision making (“Data Subject Request”). Taking into account the nature of the processing, Status shall assist Customer by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfillment of Customer’s obligation to respond to a Data Subject Request under applicable Data Protection Legislation. In addition, to the extent Customer, in its use of the Services, does not have the ability to address a Data Subject Request, Status shall upon Customer’s request provide commercially reasonable assistance to Customer in responding to such Data Subject Request, to the extent Status is legally permitted to do so and the response to such Data Subject Request is required under applicable Data Protection Legislation. To the extent legally permitted, Customer shall be responsible for any reasonable costs that Status may incur in providing such assistance.
4. DATA TRANSFER REQUIREMENTS
The Standard Contractual Clauses will apply to all processing of Personal Data by Status where the Personal Data is transferred from the EEA, Switzerland or the United Kingdom to outside the EEA, Switzerland or United Kingdom, from a data exporter acting as Controller to a data importer acting as Processor, to any country or recipient: (a) not recognized by the European Commission or the UK ICO as providing an adequate level of protection for Personal Data (as described in the Data Protection Legislation), and (b) not covered by a suitable framework recognized by the relevant authorities or courts as providing an adequate level of protection for Personal Data.
Status will abide by the requirements of the Data Protection Legislation regarding the collection, use, transfer, retention, and other processing of Personal Data from the EEA, Switzerland and United Kingdom, including, without limitation, completing any required prior assessments. All transfers of Personal Data to a third country or an international organization will be subject to appropriate safeguards as described in Article 46 of the GDPR and such transfers and safeguards will be documented according to Article 30(2) of the GDPR. Status agrees to notify Customer if it makes a determination that a change in the Data Protection Legislation is likely to have a substantial adverse effect on the warranties and obligations provided under the Standard Contractual Clauses. In such event, Status will work with the Customer to find a mutually agreeable solution. To the extent that there are any further measures that are legally required by relevant Data Protection Legislation to be implemented by Status to ensure ongoing compliance with the Standard Contractual Clauses, Status shall implement such measures within a reasonable time.
In addition, Status is certified to the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks and the commitments they entail, although Status does not rely on the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as a legal basis for transfers of Personal Data in light of the judgment of the Court of Justice of the EU in Case C-311/18 and the opinion of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) of Switzerland dated September 8, 2020. Status agrees to notify Customer if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by the Privacy Shield principles.
5.1 Sub-processing. The parties acknowledge that applicable Data Protection Legislation permits a Controller to provide the Processor a general written authorization to sub-processing. Accordingly, Customer provides a general authorization to Status, pursuant to Clause 11 of the Standard Contractual Clauses and Article 28(2) and (4) of the GDPR, to engage sub-processors (“Sub-processors”) to enable Status to fulfill its contractual obligations under the Agreement and to provide support services on Status’s behalf, subject to compliance with the requirements in this Section. The parties agree that copies of any Sub-processor agreements that are provided by Status to Customer pursuant to Clause 5(j) of the Standard Contractual Clauses may have all commercial information, or clauses unrelated to the Standard Contractual Clauses or their equivalent, removed by Status beforehand. Such copies will be provided by Status, in a manner to be determined in its discretion, upon written request by Customer.
5.2 Sub-processor Agreements. Status will: (a) enter into a written agreement in accordance with the requirements of Article 28(4) of the GDPR with any Sub-processor that will process Personal Data; (b) ensure that each such written agreement contains terms that are no less protective of Personal Data than those contained in this DPA; and (c) be liable for the acts and omissions of its Sub-processors to the same extent that Status would be liable if it were performing the services of each of those Sub-processors directly under the terms of this DPA.
5.3 Sub-processor List. Information regarding Status’s current Sub-processors, including their location and services provided (the “Sub-processor List”), is provided at Attachment 1, Annex III to this DPA. This Sub-processor list may be updated by Status from time to time in accordance with subsection 5.4.
5.4 Changes to Sub-processor List. Status will provide Customer with advance written notice before a new Sub-processor processes any Personal Data (which may be provided through email to the address communicated by Customer in its Status admin portal, or such other reasonable means). Customer may object to the new Sub-processor within fifteen (15) days of such notice on reasonable grounds relating to the protection of Personal Data by following the instructions set forth in the Sub-processor List. In such case, Status shall have the right to cure the objection through one of the following options: (1) Status will cancel its plans to use the Sub-processor with regards to processing Personal Data or will offer an alternative to provide the Services without such Sub-processor; or (2) Status will take the corrective steps requested by Customer in its objection notice and proceed to use the Sub-processor; or (3) Status may cease to provide, or Customer may agree not to use whether temporarily or permanently, the particular aspect or feature of the Services that would involve the use of such Sub-processor. If none of the above options are commercially feasible, in Status’s reasonable judgment, and the objection(s) have not been resolved to the satisfaction of the parties within thirty (30) days after Status’s receipt of Customer’s objection notice, then either party may terminate the Agreement for cause and in such case, Customer will be refunded any pre-paid fees for the applicable Services pro-rated for the unused portion of the Subscription Term. Such termination right is Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy if Customer objects to any new Sub-processor.
6. SECURITY MEASURES
Status implements the physical, technical, and organizational security measures set forth in EXHIBIT B of this DPA with respect to the Personal Data (“Security Measures”) to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk in accordance with the standards of Article 32 of the GDPR. Status regularly tests, assesses and evaluates the effectiveness of the Security Measures. Status will not materially decrease the overall security of the Services during the term of the Agreement. Status will take appropriate steps to ensure compliance with the Security Measures by its employees, contractors and Sub-processors to the extent applicable to their scope of performance.
7. SECURITY INCIDENT NOTIFICATION
The parties agree that Status’s obligations under Clause 5(d)(ii) of the Standard Contractual Clauses and under Article 28(3)(f) of the GDPR with respect to Customer’s compliance with Articles 33 and 34 of the GDPR will be carried out in accordance with this Section 7. If Status becomes aware of any unauthorized or unlawful access to, or acquisition, alteration, use, disclosure, or destruction of, Customer’s Personal Data, including any “personal data breach” as defined in the GDPR (“Security Incident”), Status will notify Customer without undue delay after becoming aware of and confirming the Security Incident. Status will take reasonable steps to: (a) identify the cause of the Security Incident; and (b) take any actions necessary and reasonable to remediate the cause of such Security Incident to the extent such remediation is within Status’s reasonable control. Status will also reasonably cooperate with Customer with respect to any investigations and with preparing potentially required notices, and provide any information reasonably requested by Customer in relation to the Security Incident.
The parties agree that the audits described in Clauses 5(f) and 12(2) of the Standard Contractual Clauses and Article 28(h) of the GDPR (the “Audit”) will be carried out in accordance with the following conditions:
An Audit of its data processing facilities may be performed no more than once per year during Status’s normal business hours, unless (i) otherwise agreed to in writing by Customer and Status, (ii) required by a regulator or under applicable Data Protection Legislation, or (iii) there is a Security Incident;
Customer will provide Status with at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice of an Audit, which may be conducted by Customer or an independent auditor appointed by Customer that is not a competitor of Status (“Auditor”);
The Auditors will conduct Audits subject to any appropriate and reasonable confidentiality restrictions requested by Status;
The scope of an Audit will be limited to Status systems, processes and documentation relevant to the processing and protection of Personal Data;
Prior to the start of an Audit, the parties will agree to reasonable scope, time, duration, place and conditions for the Audit, and a reasonable reimbursement rate payable by Customer to Status for Status’s Audit expenses;
If available, Status will provide an Auditor, upon request, with any third-party certifications pertinent to Status’s compliance with its obligations under this DPA (for example, ISO 27001, ISO 27701 and/or SOC 2, Type II); and
Customer will promptly notify and provide Status with full details regarding any perceived non-compliance or security concerns discovered during the course of an Audit.
9.1 Term and Termination. This DPA will remain in force until (i) it is replaced or repealed by mutual agreement of Customer and Status, or (ii) the Agreement is terminated or expires.
9.2 Liability. Any claims brought under this DPA will be subject to the same terms and conditions, including the exclusions and limitations of liability, as are set out in the Agreement. Status’s liability to Customer under this DPA will be limited to the same extent as Status’s liability to Customer under the Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the total liability of Status and its affiliates for all claims by Customer arising out of or related to the Agreement and this DPA shall apply in aggregate for all claims under both the Agreement and this DPA. In no event will either party limit its liability with respect to any data subject rights under the Standard Contractual Clauses or the GDPR.
9.3 Governing Law. Without prejudice to clause 7 (Mediation and Jurisdiction) and clause 9 (Governing Law) of the Standard Contractual Clauses: (i) the parties to this DPA hereby submit to the choice of jurisdiction stipulated in the Agreement with respect to any disputes or claims howsoever arising under this DPA, including disputes regarding its existence, validity or termination or the consequences of its nullity; and
(ii) this DPA and all non-contractual or other obligations arising out of or in connection with it are governed by the laws of the country or territory stipulated for this purpose in the Agreement.
9.4 Changes in Data Protection Legislation. Status and Customer may, by written notice to the other party, propose to amend the appendices to the Standard Contractual Clauses or this DPA as required as a result of any change in, or decision of a competent authority under, applicable Data Protection Legislation, to allow processing of Personal Data to be done (or continue to be done) without breach of such Data Protection Legislation. The parties agree to make any such required amendment, which shall be in writing and signed by both parties.
9.5 Counterparts. This DPA may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which will be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together will comprise a single instrument. This DPA may be delivered by facsimile or electronic document format (e.g. PDF), and facsimile or electronic copies of executed signature pages will be binding as originals.
9.6 Entire Agreement. This DPA, together with the Agreement, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes any other prior or contemporaneous agreements or terms and conditions, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. In case of conflict or inconsistency between this DPA, the Agreement, and the Standard Contractual Clauses, the following order of precedence shall govern to the extent of the conflict or inconsistency: (i) the Standard Contractual Clauses; (ii) this DPA; and (iii) the Agreement.

(b) The data importer shall immediately inform the data exporter if it is unable to follow those instructions.
8.2 Purpose limitation
The data importer shall process the personal data only for the specific purpose(s) of the transfer, as set out in Annex I.B, unless on further instructions from the data exporter.
On request, the data exporter shall make a copy of these Clauses, including the Appendix as completed by the Parties, available to the data subject free of charge. To the extent necessary to protect business secrets or other confidential information, including the measures described in Annex II and personal data, the data exporter may redact part of the text of the Appendix to these Clauses prior to sharing a copy, but shall provide a meaningful summary where the data subject would otherwise not be able to understand the content or exercise his/her rights. On request, the Parties shall provide the data subject with the reasons for the redactions, to the extent possible without revealing the redacted information. This Clause is without prejudice to the obligations of the data exporter under Articles 13 and 14 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
If the data importer becomes aware that the personal data it has received is inaccurate, or has become outdated, it shall inform the data exporter without undue delay. In this case, the data importer shall cooperate with the data exporter to erase or rectify the data.
8.5 Duration of processing and erasure or return of data
Processing by the data importer shall only take place for the duration specified in Annex I.B. After the end of the provision of the processing services, the data importer shall, at the choice of the data exporter, delete all personal data processed on behalf of the data exporter and certify to the data exporter that it has done so, or return to the data exporter all personal data processed on its behalf and delete existing copies. Until the data is deleted or returned, the data importer shall continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses. In case of local laws applicable to the data importer that prohibit return or deletion of the personal data, the data importer warrants that it will continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses and will only process it to the extent and for as long as required under that local law. This is without prejudice to Clause 14, in particular the requirement for the data importer under Clause 14(e) to notify the data exporter throughout the duration of the contract if it has reason to believe that it is or has become subject to laws or practices not in line with the requirements under Clause 14(a).
8.6 Security of processing
(a) The data importer and, during transmission, also the data exporter shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of the data, including protection against a breach of security leading to accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access to that data (hereinafter ‘personal data breach’). In assessing the appropriate level of security, the Parties shall take due account of the state of the art, the costs of implementation, the nature, scope, context and purpose(s) of processing and the risks involved in the processing for the data subjects. The Parties shall in particular consider having recourse to encryption or pseudonymisation, including during transmission, where the purpose of processing can be fulfilled in that manner. In case of pseudonymisation, the additional information for attributing the personal data to a specific data subject shall, where possible, remain under the exclusive control of the data exporter. In complying with its obligations under this paragraph, the data importer shall at least implement the technical and organisational measures specified in Annex II. The data importer shall carry out regular checks to ensure that these measures continue to provide an appropriate level of security.
(b) The data importer shall grant access to the personal data to members of its personnel only to the extent strictly necessary for the implementation, management and monitoring of the contract. It shall ensure that persons authorised to process the personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
(c) In the event of a personal data breach concerning personal data processed by the data importer under these Clauses, the data importer shall take appropriate measures to address the breach, including measures to mitigate its adverse effects. The data importer shall also notify the data exporter without undue delay after having become aware of the breach. Such notification shall contain the details of a contact point where more information can be obtained, a description of the nature of the breach (including, where possible, categories and approximate number of data subjects and personal data records concerned), its likely consequences and the measures taken or proposed to address the breach including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects. Where, and in so far as, it is not possible to provide all information at the same time, the initial notification shall contain the information then available and further information shall, as it becomes available, subsequently be provided without undue delay.
(d) The data importer shall cooperate with and assist the data exporter to enable the data exporter to comply with its obligations under Regulation (EU) 2016/679, in particular to notify the competent supervisory authority and the affected data subjects, taking into account the nature of processing and the information available to the data importer.
8.7 Sensitive data
Where the transfer involves personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, or biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or a person’s sex life or sexual orientation, or data relating to criminal convictions and offences (hereinafter ‘sensitive data’), the data importer shall apply the specific restrictions and/or additional safeguards described in Annex I.B.
8.8 Onward transfers
The data importer shall only disclose the personal data to a third party on documented instructions from the data exporter. In addition, the data may only be disclosed to a third party located outside the European Union (in the same country as the data importer or in another third country, hereinafter ‘onward transfer’) if the third party is or agrees to be bound by these Clauses, under the appropriate Module, or if:
(i) the onward transfer is to a country benefitting from an adequacy decision pursuant to Article 45 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 that covers the onward transfer;
(ii) the third party otherwise ensures appropriate safeguards pursuant to Articles 46 or 47 Regulation of (EU) 2016/679 with respect to the processing in question;
(iii) the onward transfer is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims in the context of specific administrative, regulatory or judicial proceedings; or
(iv) the onward transfer is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
Any onward transfer is subject to compliance by the data importer with all the other safeguards under these Clauses, in particular purpose limitation.
8.9 Documentation and compliance
(a) The data importer shall promptly and adequately deal with enquiries from the data exporter that relate to the processing under these Clauses.
(b) The Parties shall be able to demonstrate compliance with these Clauses. In particular, the data importer shall keep appropriate documentation on the processing activities carried out on behalf of the data exporter.
(c) The data importer shall make available to the data exporter all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations set out in these Clauses and at the data exporter’s request, allow for and contribute to audits of the processing activities covered by these Clauses, at reasonable intervals or if there are indications of non-compliance. In deciding on a review or audit, the data exporter may take into account relevant certifications held by the data importer.
(d) The data exporter may choose to conduct the audit by itself or mandate an independent auditor. Audits may include inspections at the premises or physical facilities of the data importer and shall, where appropriate, be carried out with reasonable notice.
(e) The Parties shall make the information referred to in paragraphs (b) and (c), including the results of any audits, available to the competent supervisory authority on request.
Use of sub-processors
(a) The data importer has the data exporter’s general authorisation for the engagement of sub-processor(s) from an agreed list. The data importer shall specifically inform the data exporter in writing of any intended changes to that list through the addition or replacement of sub-processors at least 10 days in advance, thereby giving the data exporter sufficient time to be able to object to such changes prior to the engagement of the sub-processor(s). The data importer shall provide the data exporter with the information necessary to enable the data exporter to exercise its right to object.
(b) Where the data importer engages a sub-processor to carry out specific processing activities (on behalf of the data exporter), it shall do so by way of a written contract that provides for, in substance, the same data protection obligations as those binding the data importer under these Clauses, including in terms of third-party beneficiary rights for data subjects. The Parties agree that, by complying with this Clause, the data importer fulfils its obligations under Clause 8.8. The data importer shall ensure that the sub-processor complies with the obligations to which the data importer is subject pursuant to these Clauses.
(c) The data importer shall provide, at the data exporter’s request, a copy of such a sub-processor agreement and any subsequent amendments to the data exporter. To the extent necessary to protect business secrets or other confidential information, including personal data, the data importer may redact the text of the agreement prior to sharing a copy.
(d) The data importer shall remain fully responsible to the data exporter for the performance of the sub-processor’s obligations under its contract with the data importer. The data importer shall notify the data exporter of any failure by the sub-processor to fulfil its obligations under that contract.
(e) The data importer shall agree a third-party beneficiary clause with the sub-processor whereby – in the event the data importer has factually disappeared, ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent – the data exporter shall have the right to terminate the sub-processor contract and to instruct the sub-processor to erase or return the personal data.
Data subject rights
(a) The data importer shall promptly notify the data exporter of any request it has received from a data subject. It shall not respond to that request itself unless it has been authorised to do so by the data exporter.
(b) The data importer shall assist the data exporter in fulfilling its obligations to respond to data subjects’ requests for the exercise of their rights under Regulation (EU) 2016/679. In this regard, the Parties shall set out in Annex II the appropriate technical and organisational measures, taking into account the nature of the processing, by which the assistance shall be provided, as well as the scope and the extent of the assistance required.
(c) In fulfilling its obligations under paragraphs (a) and (b), the data importer shall comply with the instructions from the data exporter.
(a) The data importer shall inform data subjects in a transparent and easily accessible format, through individual notice or on its website, of a contact point authorised to handle complaints. It shall deal promptly with any complaints it receives from a data subject.
(b) In case of a dispute between a data subject and one of the Parties as regards compliance with these Clauses, that Party shall use its best efforts to resolve the issue amicably in a timely fashion. The Parties shall keep each other informed about such disputes and, where appropriate, cooperate in resolving them.
(c) Where the data subject invokes a third-party beneficiary right pursuant to Clause 3, the data importer shall accept the decision of the data subject to:
(i) lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in the Member State of his/her habitual residence or place of work, or the competent supervisory authority pursuant to Clause 13;
(ii) refer the dispute to the competent courts within the meaning of Clause 18.
(d) The Parties accept that the data subject may be represented by a not-for-profit body, organisation or association under the conditions set out in Article 80(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
(e) The data importer shall abide by a decision that is binding under the applicable EU or Member State law.
(f) The data importer agrees that the choice made by the data subject will not prejudice his/her substantive and procedural rights to seek remedies in accordance with applicable laws.
(a) Each Party shall be liable to the other Party/ies for any damages it causes the other Party/ies by any breach of these Clauses.
(b) The data importer shall be liable to the data subject, and the data subject shall be entitled to receive compensation, for any material or non-material damages the data importer or its sub-processor causes the data subject by breaching the third-party beneficiary rights under these Clauses.
(c) Notwithstanding paragraph (b), the data exporter shall be liable to the data subject, and the data subject shall be entitled to receive compensation, for any material or non-material damages the data exporter or the data importer (or its sub-processor) causes the data subject by breaching the third-party beneficiary rights under these Clauses. This is without prejudice to the liability of the data exporter and, where the data exporter is a processor acting on behalf of a controller, to the liability of the controller under Regulation (EU) 2016/679 or Regulation (EU) 2018/1725, as applicable.
(d) The Parties agree that if the data exporter is held liable under paragraph (c) for damages caused by the data importer (or its sub-processor), it shall be entitled to claim back from the data importer that part of the compensation corresponding to the data importer’s responsibility for the damage.
(e) Where more than one Party is responsible for any damage caused to the data subject as a result of a breach of these Clauses, all responsible Parties shall be jointly and severally liable and the data subject is entitled to bring an action in court against any of these Parties.

(g) The data importer may not invoke the conduct of a sub-processor to avoid its own liability.
[Where the data exporter is established in an EU Member State:] The supervisory authority with responsibility for ensuring compliance by the data exporter with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 as regards the data transfer, as indicated in Annex I.C, shall act as competent supervisory authority.
[Where the data exporter is not established in an EU Member State, but falls within the territorial scope of application of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 in accordance with its Article 3(2) and has appointed a representative pursuant to Article 27(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679:] The supervisory authority of the Member State in which the representative within the meaning of Article 27(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 is established, as indicated in Annex I.C, shall act as competent supervisory authority.
[Where the data exporter is not established in an EU Member State, but falls within the territorial scope of application of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 in accordance with its Article 3(2) without however having to appoint a representative pursuant to Article 27(2) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679:] The supervisory authority of one of the Member States in which the data subjects whose personal data is transferred under these Clauses in relation to the offering of goods or services to them, or whose behaviour is monitored, are located, as indicated in Annex I.C, shall act as competent supervisory authority.
(b) The data importer agrees to submit itself to the jurisdiction of and cooperate with the competent supervisory authority in any procedures aimed at ensuring compliance with these Clauses. In particular, the data importer agrees to respond to enquiries, submit to audits and comply with the measures adopted by the supervisory authority, including remedial and compensatory measures. It shall provide the supervisory authority with written confirmation that the necessary actions have been taken.
SECTION III – LOCAL LAWS AND OBLIGATIONS IN CASE OF ACCESS BY PUBLIC AUTHORITIES
Local laws and practices affecting compliance with the Clauses
(a) The Parties warrant that they have no reason to believe that the laws and practices in the third country of destination applicable to the processing of the personal data by the data importer, including any requirements to disclose personal data or measures authorising access by public authorities, prevent the data importer from fulfilling its obligations under these Clauses. This is based on the understanding that laws and practices that respect the essence of the fundamental rights and freedoms and do not exceed what is necessary and proportionate in a democratic society to safeguard one of the objectives listed in Article 23(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, are not in contradiction with these Clauses.
(b) The Parties declare that in providing the warranty in paragraph (a), they have taken due account in particular of the following elements:
(i) the specific circumstances of the transfer, including the length of the processing chain, the number of actors involved and the transmission channels used; intended onward transfers; the type of recipient; the purpose of processing; the categories and format of the transferred personal data; the economic sector in which the transfer occurs; the storage location of the data transferred;
(ii) the laws and practices of the third country of destination– including those requiring the disclosure of data to public authorities or authorising access by such authorities – relevant in light of the specific circumstances of the transfer, and the applicable limitations and safeguards;
(iii) any relevant contractual, technical or organisational safeguards put in place to supplement the safeguards under these Clauses, including measures applied during transmission and to the processing of the personal data in the country of destination.
(c) The data importer warrants that, in carrying out the assessment under paragraph (b), it has made its best efforts to provide the data exporter with relevant information and agrees that it will continue to cooperate with the data exporter in ensuring compliance with these Clauses.
(d) The Parties agree to document the assessment under paragraph (b) and make it available to the competent supervisory authority on request.
(e) The data importer agrees to notify the data exporter promptly if, after having agreed to these Clauses and for the duration of the contract, it has reason to believe that it is or has become subject to laws or practices not in line with the requirements under paragraph (a), including following a change in the laws of the third country or a measure (such as a disclosure request) indicating an application of such laws in practice that is not in line with the requirements in paragraph (a).
(f) Following a notification pursuant to paragraph (e), or if the data exporter otherwise has reason to believe that the data importer can no longer fulfil its obligations under these Clauses, the data exporter shall promptly identify appropriate measures (e.g. technical or organisational measures to ensure security and confidentiality) to be adopted by the data exporter and/or data importer to address the situation. The data exporter shall suspend the data transfer if it considers that no appropriate safeguards for such transfer can be ensured, or if instructed by the competent supervisory authority to do so. In this case, the data exporter shall be entitled to terminate the contract, insofar as it concerns the processing of personal data under these Clauses. If the contract involves more than two Parties, the data exporter may exercise this right to termination only with respect to the relevant Party, unless the Parties have agreed otherwise. Where the contract is terminated pursuant to this Clause, Clause 16(d) and (e) shall apply.
Obligations of the data importer in case of access by public authorities
(a) The data importer agrees to notify the data exporter and, where possible, the data subject promptly (if necessary with the help of the data exporter) if it:
(i) receives a legally binding request from a public authority, including judicial authorities, under the laws of the country of destination for the disclosure of personal data transferred pursuant to these Clauses; such notification shall include information about the personal data requested, the requesting authority, the legal basis for the request and the response provided; or
(ii) becomes aware of any direct access by public authorities to personal data transferred pursuant to these Clauses in accordance with the laws of the country of destination; such notification shall include all information available to the importer.
(b) If the data importer is prohibited from notifying the data exporter and/or the data subject under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer agrees to use its best efforts to obtain a waiver of the prohibition, with a view to communicating as much information as possible, as soon as possible. The data importer agrees to document its best efforts in order to be able to demonstrate them on request of the data exporter.
(c) Where permissible under the laws of the country of destination, the data importer agrees to provide the data exporter, at regular intervals for the duration of the contract, with as much relevant information as possible on the requests received (in particular, number of requests, type of data requested, requesting authority/ies, whether requests have been challenged and the outcome of such challenges, etc.).
(d) The data importer agrees to preserve the information pursuant to paragraphs (a) to (c) for the duration of the contract and make it available to the competent supervisory authority on request.
(e) Paragraphs (a) to (c) are without prejudice to the obligation of the data importer pursuant to Clause 14(e) and Clause 16 to inform the data exporter promptly where it is unable to comply with these Clauses.
15.2 Review of legality and data minimisation
(a) The data importer agrees to review the legality of the request for disclosure, in particular whether it remains within the powers granted to the requesting public authority, and to challenge the request if, after careful assessment, it concludes that there are reasonable grounds to consider that the request is unlawful under the laws of the country of destination, applicable obligations under international law and principles of international comity. The data importer shall, under the same conditions, pursue possibilities of appeal. When challenging a request, the data importer shall seek interim measures with a view to suspending the effects of the request until the competent judicial authority has decided on its merits. It shall not disclose the personal data requested until required to do so under the applicable procedural rules. These requirements are without prejudice to the obligations of the data importer under Clause 14(e).
(b) The data importer agrees to document its legal assessment and any challenge to the request for disclosure and, to the extent permissible under the laws of the country of destination, make the documentation available to the data exporter. It shall also make it available to the competent supervisory authority on request.
(c) The data importer agrees to provide the minimum amount of information permissible when responding to a request for disclosure, based on a reasonable interpretation of the request.
SECTION IV – FINAL PROVISIONS
Non-compliance with the Clauses and termination
(a) The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter if it is unable to comply with these Clauses, for whatever reason.
(b) In the event that the data importer is in breach of these Clauses or unable to comply with these Clauses, the data exporter shall suspend the transfer of personal data to the data importer until compliance is again ensured or the contract is terminated. This is without prejudice to Clause 14(f).
(c) The data exporter shall be entitled to terminate the contract, insofar as it concerns the processing of personal data under these Clauses, where:
(i) the data exporter has suspended the transfer of personal data to the data importer pursuant to paragraph (b) and compliance with these Clauses is not restored within a reasonable time and in any event within one month of suspension;
(ii) the data importer is in substantial or persistent breach of these Clauses; or
(iii) the data importer fails to comply with a binding decision of a competent court or supervisory authority regarding its obligations under these Clauses.
In these cases, it shall inform the competent supervisory authority of such non-compliance. Where the contract involves more than two Parties, the data exporter may exercise this right to termination only with respect to the relevant Party, unless the Parties have agreed otherwise.
(d) Personal data that has been transferred prior to the termination of the contract pursuant to paragraph (c) shall at the choice of the data exporter immediately be returned to the data exporter or deleted in its entirety. The same shall apply to any copies of the data. The data importer shall certify the deletion of the data to the data exporter. Until the data is deleted or returned, the data importer shall continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses. In case of local laws applicable to the data importer that prohibit the return or deletion of the transferred personal data, the data importer warrants that it will continue to ensure compliance with these Clauses and will only process the data to the extent and for as long as required under that local law.
(e) Either Party may revoke its agreement to be bound by these Clauses where (i) the European Commission adopts a decision pursuant to Article 45(3) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 that covers the transfer of personal data to which these Clauses apply; or (ii) Regulation (EU) 2016/679 becomes part of the legal framework of the country to which the personal data is transferred. This is without prejudice to other obligations applying to the processing in question under Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
These Clauses shall be governed by the law of the EU Member State in which the data exporter is established. Where such law does not allow for third-party beneficiary rights, they shall be governed by the law of another EU Member State that does allow for third-party beneficiary rights. The Parties agree that this shall be the law of France.
Choice of forum and jurisdiction
(a) Any dispute arising from these Clauses shall be resolved by the courts of an EU Member State.
(b) The Parties agree that those shall be the courts of the EU Member State in which the data exporter is established.
(c) A data subject may also bring legal proceedings against the data exporter and/or data importer before the courts of the Member State in which he/she has his/her habitual residence.
(d) The Parties agree to submit themselves to the jurisdiction of such courts.

If you decline permission for us to collect your geolocation, we will not collect it.
We may discover, by reviewing log files, that a particular account is using the Services in a way that is degrading the experience for all the Services’ Users. If this is discovered, we may look up personally identifiable information associated with that account in order to contact you or the relevant Status customer. We handle and disclose this information in the same way we handle other potentially personally-identifying information as described below.
Information You Choose To Display Publicly On Our Services
Personal and/or sensitive information that is voluntarily posted in publicly visible parts of our Services is considered to be public, even if it would otherwise be considered to be personally identifying or sensitive. If you choose to provide personally identifiable information or otherwise sensitive information using certain public features of the Services, individuals reading such information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in content that you create or information that you submit through our Services.
Information You Give To Other People
This Policy only applies to information collected by Status. It does not apply to the practices of companies that we don’t own or control, or employees that we don’t manage, even if and when such companies utilize the Services to collect information. The Services may contain links to third party websites, and any information you provide to those sites will be covered by any privacy policies they may have, not this Policy. Please be sure to read the privacy policies of any third-party sites you visit. It is those sites’ responsibility to protect any information you give them, and we will not be held liable for their wrongful use of your personally identifying information.
2. COOKIES AND OTHER SIMILAR DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGIES
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) have a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) feature that tells a website that a user does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. If a website that responds to a DNT signal receives a DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many businesses, including Status, do not currently respond to DNT signals.
3. HOW WE USE INFORMATION
We may use your information for the following purposes.
To administer your account and provide our Services to you. For example, to:
create and manage your account;
provide you with customer support and respond to your requests;
send you product, service and new feature information, or information about changes to our terms, conditions, and policies and other administrative information;
respond to inquiries, offer support to Users and help us solve any potential issues you might have with the use of our Services;
complete your transactions; and
communicate with you about our Services, including order management and billing.
To ensure a consistent experience across your devices. We may link the various devices you use so that you can enjoy a consistent experience of our Services on all of them. We do this by linking devices and browser data, such as when you log into your account on different devices or by using partial or full IP address, browser version and similar data about your devices to help identify and link them.
To improve our Services and develop new ones. For example, to:
administer focus groups and surveys;
request feedback and to contact you about your use of our Services;
conduct research and analysis of users’ behavior to improve our Services and content (for instance, we may decide to change the look and feel or even substantially modify a given feature based on users’ behavior); and
develop new features and Services.
To prevent, detect and fight fraud or other illegal or unauthorized activities. For example, to:
address ongoing or alleged misbehavior on and off-platform;
perform data analysis to better understand and design countermeasures against these activities; and
retain data related to fraudulent activities to prevent against recurrences.
To ensure legal compliance. For example, to:
comply with legal requirements;
assist law enforcement; and
enforce or exercise our rights, for example our Terms of Service.
To process your information as described above, we rely on the following legal bases:

4. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION
We may share your information with others, as follows.
With other users. You share information with other users when you voluntarily disclose information on the Services. Please be careful with your information and make sure that the content you share is content that you’re comfortable being publicly viewable since neither you nor we can control what others do with your information once you share it.
