Invoice Terms & Conditions
Last updated in May 2018
1. Your relationship with Socialbakers
Your use of Socialbakers' products, services, content and web sites (referred to
collectively as the “Service” or “Services” in this document and excluding any services
provided to you or your employees by Socialbakers under a separate written
agreement) is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and Socialbakers
(as defined below in Section 18.1) contained in this document and/or any other
document expressly referred to herein. The Services are accessed through
Socialbakers’ proprietary software application(s) (referred to as the “Software” below)
hosted at our web platform at www.socialbakers.com and consist in a single log-in,
centralised web dashboard that enables you to access data, metrics and analytics from
social profiles on multiple social networks. The Services are provided as “Software as a
Service (SaaS)” subscription services and we will not be delivering copies of the
Software to you as part of the Services. This document explains how the agreement is
made up and sets out some of the terms of that agreement.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing with Socialbakers, your agreement with
Socialbakers will always include, at a minimum, the terms and conditions set out in this
document. These are referred to below as the “Universal Terms”.
Your agreement with Socialbakers will also include all subscription rates and payment
terms applicable to the Services chosen by you (the “Payment Terms”). The Payment
Terms, including any related additional terms applicable to your subscription, may also
be included in a binding purchase order that you sign and that refers to these Universal
Terms (the “Binding Order”). Depending on which Service you subscribe to, your
agreement with Socialbakers may also include certain terms specific to the use of such
Service (the “Specific Terms”). Where Specific Terms apply to a Service (such as the
http://www.socialbakers.com/analytics-ads-terms-and-conditions), these will be accessible for you to read either within, or
through your use of, that Service, or will be provided to you separately, usually together
with the Binding Order.
The Universal Terms, together with your Binding Order which contains the Payment
Terms and any related additional Specific Terms applicable to your subscription, form a
legally binding agreement between you and Socialbakers in relation to your use of the
Services. It is important that you take the time to read them carefully. Collectively, this
legal agreement is referred to below as the “Terms”.
If there is any contradiction between what the Binding Order or Specific Terms say and
what the Universal Terms say, then the Binding Order (Specific Terms) shall take
precedence in relation to that Service.
2. Accepting the Terms
In order to use the Services, you must firstly agree to the Terms. You may not use the
Services if you do not accept the Terms. You can accept the Terms by signing a written
copy of the Terms and delivering it to Socialbakers.
You may not use the Services and may not accept the Terms if (A) you are not of legal
age to form a binding contract with Socialbakers; (B) when signing on behalf of an
entity, you are not authorized to legally bind your company or organization to such
terms; or (C) you are a person or entity barred from receiving the Services under the
laws of the Czech Republic or other countries including the country in which you are
resident or from which you use the Services.
The Services are provided by Socialbakers for consideration. The prices applicable to
your use of the Services are stipulated in your Binding Order which defines your
Payment Terms. Socialbakers will invoice you for the Services in accordance with the
terms stipulated in your Payment Terms.
Socialbakers is not responsible for the payment processing provided by any third party.
Each party will be responsible for payment of any taxes applicable to its own income
and activities in connection with the Services.
3. Language of the Terms
The Terms are provided in English. If Socialbakers has provided you with a translation
of the English language version of the Terms, you agree that the translation is provided
only for your convenience, and that the English language versions of the Terms will
govern your relationship with Socialbakers.
If there is any contradiction between what the English language version of the Terms and the translation, the
English language version shall take precedence.
4. Provision of the Services by Socialbakers
Socialbakers may have subsidiaries and affiliated legal entities in other countries. At times, these companies
or their employees may serve as contact points with respect to the Services provided to you by Socialbakers. Even
where Socialbakers’ subsidiaries or affiliates are your primary contact points, Socialbakers as the Services
provider will remain ultimately responsible for the provision of Services hereunder.
Socialbakers is constantly innovating in order to provide the best possible experience for its users. You
acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services which Socialbakers provides may change from time to
time without prior notice to you.
4.3 As part of this continuing innovation, you acknowledge and agree that Socialbakers
may permanently or temporarily stop providing the Services (or any features within the
Services) to you or to users generally at Socialbakers’ sole discretion, without prior
notice to you. If you have pre-paid the Services for a fixed period of time and (A)
Socialbakers stops providing the Services for any reason other than your breach
pursuant to Section 12.3 A or legal requirement pursuant to Section 12.3 B; or (B) you
terminate the Terms for Socialbakers’ material breach pursuant to Section 12.3 A; 3
Socialbakers will refund to you pro-rata the corresponding fees for Services already
paid by you equivalent to the part or remainder of the term in which you will not use the
You understand and agree that Socialbakers may at its full discretion disable access to
your account for (i) non-payment or (ii) other breach of the Terms if such breach is
material, and that in such case you may be prevented from accessing the Services,
your account details or any files or other content which is contained in your account. If
your access to the Services had been disabled for non-payment or other (material)
breach of the Terms, and subsequently was reactivated (e.g. after the breach had been
cured), you still remain obliged to pay the Services fees for the entire subscription term
including the period for which you could not access the Services as a result of your
default; you will not be entitled to any compensation or refunds (whether monetary or in
the form of extra days of Services / extended subscription term) for the period for which
you could not use the Services. Such de-activation of Service shall not be considered a
breach of the Terms by Socialbakers. Further, the foregoing is without prejudice to
Socialbakers’ right to terminate the legal agreement embodied in the Terms for material
breach pursuant to Section 12.3 of the Terms.
5. Your use of the Services
To access the Services, you or your individual users may be required to provide
identification, contact or similar details as part of the registration process for the
Service or as part of your continued use of the Services. You agree that any
registration information you give to Socialbakers will always be accurate, correct and
up to date.
You agree to use the Services only for purposes that are permitted by (A) the Terms;
(B) any applicable law, regulation, generally accepted practices, or guidelines in the
relevant jurisdictions (including any laws regarding the export of data or software to and
from the EU, the United States or other relevant countries); and (C) any other
applicable rules (including, without limitation, Facebook, Twitter and other social media
You agree not to access (or attempt to access) any of the Services by any means other
than through the interface that is provided by Socialbakers, unless you have been
specifically allowed to do so in a separate written agreement with Socialbakers.
You agree that you will not engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the
Services (or the servers and networks which are connected to the Services).
Unless you have been specifically permitted to do so in a separate agreement with Socialbakers, you agree that
you will not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade or resell the Services for any purpose. The Services can be
used by you only for your own internal business purposes or, if you are an agency providing data analytics,
marketing or similar services to your clients, you may use the Services solely for the benefit of your clients
explicitly listed in the Binding Order. You may not use the Services for the benefit of any third parties not
explicitly listed in the Binding Order. You acknowledge that use of the Services in breach of this Section 5.5 will
be considered a material breach of these Terms, with all consequences resulting therefrom.
You agree that you will not engage in any activity that may amount to the misuse of our Services or that
seeks to circumvent the Services’ terms. For example, if Socialbakers provides you with any portion of a Service for
free (as part of a trial, pilot or otherwise), you may not engage in data mining or other excessive use of the
Service, beyond what is permitted by the free Service (and as advertised for that free Service at the time of the
relevant promotion). Socialbakers reserves the right to limit the customer’s activity on any of its free Services
for any reason and without notice.
You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Socialbakers has no responsibility to you or to any
third party for) any breach of your obligations under the Terms and for the consequences (including any loss or
damage which Socialbakers may suffer) of any such breach.
6. Your passwords and account security
6.1 You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality
of passwords associated with any account you use to access the Services.
6.2 Accordingly, you agree that you will be solely responsible for all activities that occur
under your account.
6.3 If you become aware of any unauthorised use of your password or of your account, you
agree to notify Socialbakers immediately at info at Socialbakers dot com.
6.4 Socialbakers uses Facebook Connect, “Sign in with Twitter”, and other authentication
methods for authorization of users. If your Facebook account, Twitter account, or any
other account used for registration and/or signing in the Services is deleted or non-
functional you may no longer be able to access the Services.
7. Privacy and personal data
7.1 We are serious about privacy of all individuals who use our Services or whose personal
data we process.
7.2 We collect personal data when you (your users) register an account with us, complete
a web application form, login to the Services (via username or by using a social
network login), or otherwise interact with us. We process user personal data to provide
and administer the Service and communicate with you, to provide a better user
experience, inform you of new Services or Service features, and, in limited
circumstance, to protect the Services and our rights. Our Services consist in social
media monitoring, analytics and management, which means we analyse social media
content, including profiles of social media users, statistics, metrics and other
information that we receive from social media platforms via these platforms’ APIs. The
type and scope of data obtained from social media platforms depends on the type of
the APIs and permissions granted by the respective platforms, and on the
administrative permissions you grant to us to your social media pages or properties,
where applicable. We process personal data primarily as a data controller. We may also process personal data as a
data processor to the extent when (A) you are a data
controller with respect to personal data specified in Annex 1, and (B) you instruct us to
process such personal data on your behalf within the Services. In such case, the data
processing agreement in Annex 1 shall regulate the processing of such personal data.
The nature and extent of processing, the type of personal data processed, the
purposes and legal basis on which we process personal data, as well as the
organisational and technical measures that we implemented to ensure the security of
www.socialbakers.com/privacy-policy, which applies to the processing of personal data
within or in connection with our provision of Services to you and sets out our
commitment to protecting personal data and privacy of individuals.
7.3 Socialbakers has implemented and will maintain appropriate technical and
organizational measures, internal controls, and information security routines in
accordance with good industry practice and having regard to the state of technological
development to protect your data against accidental loss, destruction, or alteration;
unauthorized disclosure or access (including but not limited to taking reasonable steps
to ensure the reliability of employees having access to your data and providing for
limited access rights and access controls; authentication; personnel training; regular
back up; data recovery and incident management procedures; restrictions on storing,
printing and disposal of personal data; software protection of devices on which
personal data are stored; etc.); or unlawful destruction.
7.4 Data collected from you or your individual users may be transferred to, and stored and
processed in, the United States or any other country outside the EEA in which
Socialbakers or its affiliates, or Socialbakers’ subcontractors, suppliers or vendors
maintain facilities, subject to Socialbakers implementing such appropriate legal
mechanisms as required by EU law to ensure an adequate level of personal data
protection by the third-party processors, such as the controller-to-processor Standard
Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission (2010/87/EU) or Privacy
Shield approved by European Decision (2016/1250) for data transfers from the EU to
the USA and/or other third countries.
7.5 You agree that Socialbakers may use aggregated and anonymised data derived from
the data provided by you or collected by the program analytics such as user behaviour
and activities for its own statistics, for auditing, for the purposes of product and market
research and analytics (which help Socialbakers to optimise and improve its Services
and their usability, the range of Services, and to develop new technologies, products
and services), and for benchmarks and other analyses. Socialbakers may publish such
anonymised data and share them with third parties outside of Socialbakers; however,
Socialbakers will not directly or indirectly transfer any data received from you to (or use
such data in connection with) any ad network, ad exchange, data broker, or other
advertising or monetization related toolset.

responsibility of the person from which such Content originated.

or companies on their behalf), and that the Content may include sensitive personal

doubt, if any reports or similar outputs from the Services (hereinafter “Reports”)

features, their use in connection with that Report is permitted and Section 9.4 below

authority necessary to grant the above licence.
12. Ending your relationship with Socialbakers

12.2 During the agreement term stipulated in your Binding Order, each party may only
terminate the Terms for reasons stipulated in Section 12.3.
12.3 Each of the parties may at any time terminate the legal agreement embodied in the
Terms if (A) the other party has materially breached any provision of the Terms and
failed to cure the breach (where such breach is capable of being cured) within a
reasonable cure period provided by the other party, or has acted in a manner which
clearly shows that it does not intend to, or is unable to comply with the provisions of the
Terms; or (B) a party is required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of
the Services is or becomes unlawful); in addition, Socialbakers may at any time
terminate the legal agreement embodied in the Terms if (C) the partner with whom
Socialbakers offered the Services to you, or whom Socialbakers uses or whose

(D) Socialbakers is transitioning to no longer providing the Services to users in the
country in which you reside or from which you use the Services; or (E) the provision of
the Services to you by Socialbakers is, in Socialbakers' opinion, no longer

payments under the Terms and/or your Binding Order will be considered a material
breach of the Terms if the due amount remains unpaid (fully or partially) more than 90
days after the payment due date. In the event you terminate the agreement for a
material breach by Socialbakers as described in (A) above, or if Socialbakers ceases to

obligations and liabilities that you and Socialbakers have benefited from, been subject
to (or which have accrued over time whilst your legal agreement with Socialbakers has
been in force) and/or which are expressed to continue indefinitely, shall be unaffected
by this cessation, and the provisions of Section 18.7 shall continue to apply to such
rights, obligations and liabilities indefinitely.
12.6 Further, you understand and agree that if you, despite the termination or expiration of
your legal agreement with Socialbakers for any reason, continue using the Services
(e.g. in a situation when your fixed-term order for the Services expires), the terms and
conditions contained in the Terms (including the Payment Terms) will continue to apply,
and you undertake to pay for the use of the Services by you or your users in
accordance with the Payment Terms.
13. Exclusion of Warranties
13.1 The Services are provided “as is” and Socialbakers, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and
its licensors give you no warranty with respect to them. Services features that
interoperate with social media networks depend on the continuing availability of those
social media network’s APIs, data, application, programs and services for use with the
Service. If any social media network ceases to make its APIs, data, application,
programs or services available on reasonable terms for the Service, Socialbakers may
cease providing such Service features upon reasonable prior written notice to you
pursuant to Section 12.3 (C). Socialbakers is not liable or responsible for the quality,
accuracy or truthfulness of services or information obtained from social media networks

quality, fitness for purpose or conformance with description) apply to the Services
except to the extent that they are expressly set out in the Terms.
13.4 Nothing in the Terms shall affect those statutory rights which you are always entitled to
as a consumer and that you cannot contractually agree to alter or waive.
14. Limitation of liability
14.1 Nothing in these Terms shall exclude or limit Socialbakers' liability for losses which may
not be lawfully excluded or limited by applicable law.
14.2 TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WHATEVER THE
LEGAL BASIS FOR THE CLAIM, SOCIALBAKERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY
INDIRECT DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER
(INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ATTORNEYS' FEES), DAMAGES FOR LOST
PROFITS OR REVENUES, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS
INFORMATION) DUE TO, RESULTING FROM, OR ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH
THESE TERMS, THE SERVICES, MATERIALS, OR THE FAILURE TO PERFORM
14.3 Subject to overall provision in Section 14.1 above, Socialbakers, its subsidiaries and
affiliates, and its licensors shall not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential
losses which may be incurred by you. Indirect and consequential losses shall include
(A) any loss of profit (whether incurred directly or indirectly), loss of goodwill or
business reputation, or any loss of data suffered by you; (B) loss or damage which may
be incurred by you as a result of (i) any reliance placed by you on the completeness,
accuracy or existence of any advertising, or as a result of any relationship or
transaction between you and any advertiser or sponsor whose advertising appears on
the Services; (ii) any changes which Socialbakers may make to the Services, or for any
permanent or temporary cessation in the provision of the Services (or any features
within the Services); (iii) the deletion of, corruption of, or failure to store, any Content
and other communications data maintained or transmitted by or through your use of the
Services; (iii) your failure to provide Socialbakers with accurate account information;
(iv) your failure to keep your password or account details secure and confidential.
14.4 The limitations of Socialbakers' liability to you in Section 14.3 above shall apply
whether or not Socialbakers has been advised of or should have been aware of the
possibility of any such losses arising.
14.5 Except for liabilities arising out of Socialbakers’ indemnification obligations under
Section 9.6 above, Socialbakers' liability for damage incurred by you as a result of or in
connection with the Services shall be limited to direct damages up to the amount you
paid to Socialbakers for the Services giving rise to that liability during the last three
months before the occurrence of Socialbakers' liability (or amount corresponding to a
three-month Service fee, as applicable). Socialbakers and you agree that this limitation
reflects the damage that can be foreseen at the time of conclusion of this legal
agreement between you and Socialbakers, taking into account all circumstances the
parties know or should know while exercising due care and that can arise from a
breach of Socialbakers’ obligations under these Terms.
15.1 Some of the Services, in particular free Services, may be supported by advertising
revenue and may display advertisements and promotions. These advertisements may

the Services or other information.
15.2 The manner, mode and extent of advertising by Socialbakers on the Services are
subject to change without specific notice to you.

companies or persons other than Socialbakers.
16.2 You acknowledge and agree that Socialbakers is not responsible for the availability of
any such external sites or resources, and does not endorse any advertising, products
or other materials on or available from such web sites or resources.
16.3 You acknowledge and agree that Socialbakers is not liable for any loss or damage
which may be incurred by you as a result of the availability of those external sites or resources. In addition, you
acknowledge and agree that Socialbakers is not liable for
any damage which may be incurred by you as a result of any reliance you may have
placed on the completeness, accuracy, or existence of any advertising, products, or
other materials on, or available from, such web sites or resources.
17. Changes to the Terms
17.1 Any changes to the Terms shall be made by a written amendment and shall be
effective once both parties have signed such amendment.

are provided by another person or company. Your use of these other services, software
or goods may be subject to separate terms between you and the company or person
concerned. If so, the Terms do not affect your legal relationship with these other
companies or individuals and you remain responsible for complying with the terms of
use of such third party' services, software or goods. If you use third parties' services,
software or goods while using the Services, you declare that you act in compliance with
the Services, you must comply with the applicable Facebook
(https://www.facebook.com/terms.php), Twitter (https://twitter.com/en/tos), YouTube
(https://www.youtube.com/t/terms) or Google
(https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/) rules in versions effective as of the
date of use of such services.
18.3 The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Socialbakers and
govern your use of the Services (excluding any services which Socialbakers may
provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior
agreements between you and Socialbakers in relation to the Services.
18.4 You agree that Socialbakers may provide you with notices by email, regular mail, or
postings on the Services website.
18.5 The parties agree that if one of them does not exercise or enforce any legal right or
remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which such party has the benefit of under
any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of such party’s rights
and that those rights or remedies will still be available to it.
18.6 If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any
provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms
without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will
continue to be valid and enforceable.
18.7 The Terms, and your relationship with Socialbakers under the Terms, shall be
governed by Czech law. You and Socialbakers agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the
courts of the Czech Republic to resolve any legal matters arising from the Terms and
the venue of the court of first instance shall be Prague 1 or the Municipal Court in
Prague, as applicable. Notwithstanding this, you agree that Socialbakers shall still be
allowed to apply (A) for payment orders (or otherwise enforce payment for Services
provided under the Terms) in the jurisdiction in which you have your registered seat or
principal place of business, and (B) for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of
urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
Annex 1 – Data processing agreement
This Annex 1 – Data processing agreement shall only apply if Socialbakers provides to you Services or Services’ features within which we only have access to certain personal data because you give us your permission, authorization, token or other mechanism that allows us to access, collect or otherwise process such data, and thereby instruct us to process such personal data on your behalf; for example:
Customer care feature of our Service “Community” which involves the access by Socialbakers to, and storing and management of, communication between you and your end-customers affected via your social network pages (e.g. Facebook messages); or
Any other similar Services or Services’ features that you may activate and that would require Socialbakers to access and process any personal data associated with your social network profile, page or account which we cannot access directly from social networks (via API) without your permission and with respect to which you are the data controller; or
Any other personal data that you entrust to us for processing on your behalf, by written instruction, where such processing is necessary for us to provide you our Services.
As a data controller with respect to any personal data that you instruct us to process in the context of the Services, you are responsible for the lawfulness of such processing, including the requisite legal titles (consents or other, as may be applicable) for processing. Socialbakers is not liable for any misprocessing of data that could occur by your provision of the data to Socialbakers or your instruction to Socialbakers to process such data on your behalf.
“DPA” means the data processing agreement included in this Annex 1;
“Services” 1.1 means, for the purpose of this Annex 1, all Services Socialbakers provides to you under the Terms as your data processor, as specified in the Preamble of this DPA;
“Terms” means the Terms to which this Annex 1 is appended to.
2. Object / Scope of the processing
The object/scope of this DPA is the processing of personal data in connection with the provision of the Services specified in this DPA.
The duration of this DPA shall correspond to the term of your Services subscription.
4. Specification of Processing (nature, purpose, type of personal data and categories of data subjects)
4.1 The nature and purpose of the intended processing are defined in the Terms and correspond to the provision of the Services defined in this DPA.
4.2 Each and every transfer of personal data beyond the EU / EEA shall only take place if the specific conditions as laid down in Art. 44 et seq. GDPR have been fulfilled. When transferring personal data to a country outside of the EU/EEA, we ensure that our sub-processors are bound by the standard contractual clauses or, in case of US companies, are certified under the Privacy Shield.
Any personal data that your end-customers (or any other data subjects, as may be applicable) decide to submit to you via your social media pages, using direct messages (e.g. Facebook messages), which will be administered by Socialbakers as a data processor within the customer care feature of Socialbakers’ Service “Community” (or other Service features, as may be applicable). Such personal data may include, without limitation, data subjects’ contact information (such as name, address, company, email, telephone), identification data (date of birth, birth number), and other information relating to the data subjects’ activities; and
Information about data subjects’ behaviour on Socialbakers’ platform and/or on social media.
The exact scope of personal data processed will always depend on the specific Service you use.
5. Technical and Organizational Measures
5.1 Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we are obliged to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in such a manner that the processing of personal data will meet the requirements of applicable data protection law, in particular the GDPR and this DPA.
5.2 We have implemented technical and organisational measures as specified in the Security Policies and Practices available at:
https://www.socialbakers.com/security. You hereby acknowledge and agree that these measures are appropriate and sufficient to conform to the GDPR. Further, Socialbakers has implemented information security management in accordance with the requirements of information security standard ISO 27001.
6. Rectification, restriction, access and erasure of data
6.1 We will only erase or block personal data upon instruction issued by you. In case of requests regarding the rectification, restriction or the erasure directly addressed to us by a data subject, we will inform you about such request without undue delay.
6.2 Where appropriate we will assist and support you in fulfilment of your obligations under the GDPR to respond to requests for exercising the data subject’s right, in patricular the ‘right to be forgotten’, rectification, restriction, data portability and access rights.
6.3 You hereby agree that Socialbakers shall not be liable if you do not take action on the data subject’s request, or if you do not respond correctly or in a timely manner.
7. Our obligations
7.1 We undertake to:
Process the personal data within the Services specified in this DPA only on documented instructions from your unless processing is required by applicable laws to which we are subject to, in which case we shall, to the extent permitted by applicable laws, inform you of that legal requirement before the relevant processing of that personal data;
Inform you if we consider that an instruction violates data protection laws or regulations. We shall then be entitled to suspend the execution of the relevant instructions;
Ensure that persons authorised to process the personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality;
Taking into account the nature of the processing, assist you by appropriate technical and organisational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfilment of your obligation to respond to requests for exercising the data subject's rights;
Assist you in ensuring compliance with the obligations pursuant to Articles 32 to 36 of the GDPR taking into account the nature of processing and the information available to us;
At your choice, delete or return all the personal data to you after the end of the provision of Services relating to processing, and delete existing copies unless applicable law requires storage of the personal data;
Make available to you information necessary to demonstrate our compliance with the obligations laid down in this DPA.
8.1 We shall engage another processor (i. e. a sub-processor) only in accordance with this DPA. The mechanism hereby stipulated shall be considered a general written authorisation from you pursuant to Article 28 par. 2 of the GDPR.
8.2 If we engage another processor for carrying out specific processing activities on your behalf, the same obligations as set out in this DPA shall be imposed on that other processor by way of a written contract.
8.4 If you have a reasonable basis to object to our use of another new processor, you shall notify us promptly in writing within 5 days after being notified. For the avoidance of doubt, you hereby agree that if you are not able to show evidence that the new processor provides an unacceptable risk to the protection of personal data (e.g., the other processor has a history of security breaches) or is your direct competitor, it would be unreasonable for you to object if the other processor has passed our vendor security evaluation.
8.5 Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you object to the engagement of another processor and your objection is not unreasonable, the parties will come together in good faith to discuss an appropriate solution. We may in particular choose not use the intended processor, or engage the processor only after we take the corrective steps and / or measures requested by you.
9. Audit rights
9.1 Upon reasonable advance notice of at least 90 days and in order to ensure and review compliance with the technical and organizational security measures and the obligations laid down in this DPA, we shall permit you to conduct periodic audits or to have them carried out by an auditor mandated by you. We shall, at your written request and within a reasonable period of time, submit to you any and all information, documentation and other factual evidence necessary for the audit. The audit result shall be documented appropriately.
9.2 Audits shall be conducted during reasonable times, shall be of reasonable duration, and shall not unreasonably interfere with our day-to-day operations. In the event that you conduct an audit through a third party independent contractor, such independent contractor shall be required to enter into a non-disclosure agreement. Additionally, such independent contractor must not be our direct or indirect competitor, nor a person who can reasonably be considered by us unfit (from professional, experience and historic reasons) to perform such audit.
10.1 Unless otherwise stipulated herein, the provisions of the Terms shall apply, including any exclusions and limitation of warranties and liabilities provided therein. Provisions in this DPA shall have precedence over any provisions of the Terms relating to the processing of personal data by Socialbakers in the position of a data processor, if any.
