LeaseAccelerator GDPR Data Processing Addendum
LeaseAccelerator GDPR Data Processing Addendum
Effective Date: 1 February 2021
This Data Processing Addendum (“DPA”) supplements the LeaseAccelerator Customer Agreement as updated from time to time between Customer and LeaseAccelerator, or other agreement between Customer and LeaseAccelerator governing Customer’s use of the Service Offerings (the “Agreement”) when the GDPR applies to your use of the LeaseAccelerator Services to process Customer Data. This DPA is an agreement between you and the entity you represent (“Customer”, “you” or “your”) and the applicable contracting entity under the Agreement (“LeaseAccelerator”). Unless otherwise defined in this DPA or in the Agreement, all capitalised terms used in this DPA will have the meanings given to them in Section 17 of this DPA.
1. Data Processing.
1.1 Scope and Roles. This DPA applies when Customer Data is processed by LeaseAccelerator. In this context, LeaseAccelerator will act as “processor” to Customer who may act either as “controller” or “processor” with respect to Customer Data (as each term is defined in the GDPR).
1.2 Details of Data Processing. The details of processing, including subject matter, purpose of processing, nature of processing, categories of data subjects and type of Customer Data are described in Appendix 1 to the Standard Contractual Clauses attached as Annex 2.
1.3 Compliance with LeaseAccelerator. Each party will comply with all LeaseAccelerator, rules and regulations applicable to it and binding on it in the performance of this DPA, including the
2. Customer Instructions.
The parties agree that this DPA and the Agreement (including the provision of instructions via configuration tools such as the LeaseAccelerator management console and APIs made available by LeaseAccelerator for the Services) constitute Customer’s documented instructions regarding LeaseAccelerator’s processing of Customer Data (“Documented Instructions”). LeaseAccelerator will process Customer Data only in accordance with Documented Additional instructions outside the scope of the Documented Instructions (if any) require prior written agreement between LeaseAccelerator and Customer, including agreement on any additional fees payable by Customer to LeaseAccelerator for carrying out such instructions. Customer is entitled to terminate this DPA and the Agreement if LeaseAccelerator declines to follow instructions requested by Customer that are outside the scope of, or changed from, those given or agreed to be given in this DPA.
3. Confidentiality of Customer Data.
LeaseAccelerator will not access or use, or disclose to any third party, any Customer Data, except, in each case, as necessary to maintain or provide the Services, or as necessary to comply with the law or a valid and binding order of a governmental body (such as a subpoena or court order). If a governmental body sends LeaseAccelerator a demand for Customer Data, LeaseAccelerator will attempt to redirect the governmental body to request that data directly from Customer. As part of this effort, LeaseAccelerator may provide Customer’s basic contact information to the governmental body. If compelled to disclose Customer Data to a governmental body, then LeaseAccelerator will give Customer reasonable notice of the demand to allow Customer to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy unless LeaseAccelerator is legally prohibited from doing so. If the Standard Contractual Clauses apply, nothing in this Section 3 varies or modifies the Standard Contractual
4. Confidentiality Obligations of LeaseAccelerator Personnel.
LeaseAccelerator restricts its personnel from processing Customer Data without authorisation by LeaseAccelerator as described in the LeaseAccelerator Security Standards. LeaseAccelerator imposes appropriate contractual obligations upon its personnel, including relevant obligations regarding confidentiality, data protection and data
5. Security of Data Processing
5.1 LeaseAccelerator has implemented and will maintain the technical and organisational measures for the LeaseAccelerator Network as described in the LeaseAccelerator Security Standards and this Section. LeaseAccelerator has implemented and will maintain the following technical and organisational measures:
(a) security of the LeaseAccelerator Application as set out in Section 1.1 of the LeaseAccelerator Security Standards;
(b) physical security of the facilities as set out in Section 1.2 of the LeaseAccelerator Security Standards;
(c) measures to control access rights for LeaseAccelerator employees and contractors in relation to the LeaseAccelerator application as set out in Section 1 of the LeaseAccelerator Security Standards; and
(d) processes for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of the technical and organisational measures implemented by LeaseAccelerator as described in Section 2 of the LeaseAccelerator Security
5.2 Customer may elect to implement technical and organisational measures in relation to Customer Data. Such technical and organisational measures include the following which may be obtained by Customer from LeaseAccelerator as described in the Documentation,
(a) database layer encryption to ensure an appropriate level of security;
6.1 Authorised Sub-processors. Customer acknowledges and agrees that LeaseAccelerator may use sub-processors to fulfill its contractual obligations under this DPA or to provide certain services on its behalf, such as providing support services. If LeaseAccelerator engages the use of a new sub-processor, LeaseAccelerator will update the applicable website and provide Customer with a mechanism to obtain notice of that update. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of LeaseAccelerator’s notice, Customer may object to a new sub-processor, by notifying LeaseAccelerator, promptly, in writing. In the event Customer objects to a new Sub-processor, as permitted in the preceding sentence, LeaseAccelerator will use reasonable efforts to make or recommend a commercially reasonable change to Customer’s use of the Services to avoid Processing of Customer Data by the objected-to new Subprocessor without unreasonably burdening Customer. If LeaseAccelerator is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period of time, Customer may terminate the applicable Order Form(s) with respect only to those Services which cannot be provided by LeaseAccelerator without the use of the objected-to new Sub-processor by providing written notice to LeaseAccelerator. In such circumstance, LeaseAccelerator will refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of such Order Form(s) following the effective date of termination with respect to such terminated Services, without imposing a penalty for such termination on Customer.

(ii) LeaseAccelerator will enter into a written agreement with the sub-processor and, to the extent that the sub-processor is performing the same data processing services that are being provided by LeaseAccelerator under this DPA, LeaseAccelerator will impose on the sub- processor the same contractual obligations that LeaseAccelerator has under this DPA; and
(iii) LeaseAccelerator will remain responsible for its compliance with the obligations of this DPA and for any acts or omissions of the sub-processors that cause LeaseAccelerator to breach any of LeaseAccelerator’s obligations under this
7. Data Subject Rights
