2. Data Processing Agreement Preamble

  1. This Data Processing Agreement sets out the rights and obligations that apply to the Data Processor’s handling of personal data on behalf of the Data Controller.
  2. This Agreement has been designed to ensure the Parties’ compliance with Article 28, sub-section 3 of Regulation 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 and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation), which sets out specific requirements for the content of data processing agreements.
  3. The Data Processor’s processing of personal data shall take place for the purposes of fulfilment of the Parties’ ‘Master Agreement’. The Data Processing Agreement may be terminated by another valid data processing agreement without terminating the "main agreement".
  4. The Data Processing Agreement and the ‘Master Agreement’ shall be interdependent and cannot be terminated separately. The Data Processing Agreement may however – without termination of the ‘Master Agreement’ – be replaced by an alternative valid data processing agreement.
  5. This Data Processing Agreement shall take priority over any similar provisions contained in other agreements between the Parties, including the ‘Master Agreement’.
  6. Four appendices are attached to this Data Processing Agreement. The Appendices form an integral part of this Data Processing Agreement.
  7. Appendix A of the Data Processing Agreement contains details about the processing as well as the purpose and nature of the processing, type of personal data, categories of data subject and duration of the processing.
  8. Appendix B of the Data Processing Agreement contains the Data Controller’s terms and conditions that apply to the Data Processor’s use of Sub-Processors and a list of Sub-Processors approved by the Data Controller.
  9. Appendix C of the Data Processing Agreement contains instructions on the processing that the Data Processor is to perform on behalf of the Data Controller (the subject of the processing), the minimum security measures that are to be implemented and how inspection with the Data Processor and any Sub-Processors is to be performed.
  10. The Data Processing Agreement and its associated Appendices shall be retained in writing as well as electronically by both Parties.
  11. This Data Processing Agreement shall not exempt the Data Processor from obligations to which the Data Processor is subject pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation or other legislation.

3. The rights and obligations of the Data Controller

  1. The Data Controller shall be responsible to the outside world (including the data subject) for ensuring that the processing of personal data takes place within the framework of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Danish Data Protection Act.
  2. The Data Controller shall therefore have both the right and obligation to make decisions about the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.
  3. The Data Controller shall be responsible for ensuring that the processing that the Data Processor is instructed to perform is authorised in law.

4. The Data Processor acts according to instructions

  1. The Data Processor shall solely be permitted to process personal data on documented instructions from the Data Controller unless processing is required under EU or Member State law to which the Data Processor is subject; in this case, the Data Processor shall inform the Data Controller of this legal requirement prior to processing unless that law prohibits such information on important grounds of public interest, cf. Article 28, sub-section 3, para a.
  2. The Data Processor shall immediately inform the Data Controller if instructions in the opinion of the Data Processor contravene the General Data Protection Regulation or data protection provisions contained in other EU or Member State law.

5. Confidentiality

  1. The Data Processor shall ensure that only those persons who are currently authorised to do so are able to access the personal data being processed on behalf of the Data Controller. Access to the data shall therefore without delay be denied if such authorisation is removed or expires.
  2. Only persons who require access to the personal data in order to fulfil the obligations of the Data Processor to the Data Controller shall be provided with authorisation.
  3. The Data Processor shall ensure that persons authorised to process personal data on behalf of the Data Controller have undertaken to observe confidentiality or are subject to suitable statutory obligation of confidentiality.
  4. The Data Processor shall at the request of the Data Controller be able to demonstrate that the employees concerned are subject to the above confidentiality.

6. Security of processing

  1. The Data Processor shall take all the measures required pursuant to Article 32 of the General Data Protection Regulation which stipulates that with consideration for the current level, implementation costs and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing and the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the Data Controller and Processor shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk.
  2. The above obligation means that the Data Processor shall perform a risk assessment and thereafter implement measures to counter the identified risk. Depending on their relevance, the measures may include the following:
    1. Pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data
    2. The ability to ensure ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services.
    3. The ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident.
    4. A process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing.
  3. The Data Processor shall in ensuring the above – in all cases – at a minimum implement the level of security and the measures specified in Appendix C to this Data Processing Agreement.
  4. The Parties’ possible regulation/agreement on remuneration etc. for the Data Controller’s or the Data Processor’s subsequent requirement for establishing additional security measures shall be specified in the Parties’ ‘Master Agreement’.

7. Use of Sub-Processors

  1. The supplier must make use of another processor (Sub-Processor). At the time of the conclusion of the Agreement, the Supplier shall apply the another processor (Sub-Processor) listed in Appendix B. Upon the conclusion of this Data Processing Agreement, Customer agrees to all Sub-Processors listed in Appendix B.
  2. The Data Processor shall ensure the use of another processor (Sub-Processor) is carried out in accordance with Article 28 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation. 2 and 4.
  3. In the event of general written consent, the Data Processor shall inform the Data Controller of any planned changes with regard to additions to or replacement of other data processors and thereby give the Data Controller the opportunity to object to such changes. 
  4. When the Data Processor has the Data Controller’s authorisation to use a sub-processor, the Data Processor shall ensure that the Sub-Processor is subject to the same data protection obligations as those specified in this Data Processing Agreement on the basis of a contract or other legal document under EU law or the national law of the Member States, in particular providing the necessary guarantees that the Sub-Processor will implement the appropriate technical and organisational measures in such a way that the processing meets the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation.
  5. The Data Processor shall in his agreement with the Sub-Processor include the Data Controller as a third party in the event of the bankruptcy of the Data Processor to enable the Data Controller to assume the Data Processor’s rights and invoke these as regards the Sub-Processor, e.g. so that the Data Controller is able to instruct the Sub-Processor to perform the erasure or return of data. 
  6. If the Sub-Processor does not fulfil his data protection obligations, the Data Processor shall remain fully liable to the Data Controller as regards the fulfilment of the obligations of the Sub-Processor.  

8. Transfer of data to third countries or international organisations

  1. The Data Processor shall solely be permitted to process personal data on documented instructions from the Data Controller, including as regards transfer (assignment, disclosure and internal use) of personal data to third countries or international organisations, unless processing is required under EU or Member State law to which the Data Processor is subject; in such a case, the Data Processor shall inform the Data Controller of that legal requirement prior to processing unless that law prohibits such information on important grounds of public interest, cf. Article 28, sub-section 3, para a.
