4.1 Appointment of Subprocessors. Customer acknowledges and agrees that DroneDeploy may engage third-party Subprocessors in connection with the provision of the Services. As a condition to permitting a third-party Subprocessor to Process Personal Data, DroneDeploy will enter into a written agreement with each Subprocessor containing data protection obligations that provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Data as those in this DPA, to the extent applicable to the nature of the Services provided by such Subprocessor. Customer acknowledges that DroneDeploy is located in the United States and is involved in providing the Services to Customer either directly or through the provision of support to DroneDeploy.

4.2 List of Current Subprocessors and Notification of New Subprocessors. A current list of Subprocessors for the Services, including the identities of those Subprocessors and their country of location will be made available upon request. Customer may receive notifications of new Subprocessors by emailing compliance@dronedeploy.com. DroneDeploy shall provide the subscriber with the notification of new Subprocessors(s) before authorizing such new Subprocessor(s) to Process Personal Data in connection with the provision of the applicable Services.

4.3 Objection right for New Subprocessors. Customer may reasonably object to DroneDeploy’s use of a new Subprocessor (e.g., if making Personal Data available to the Subprocessor may violate applicable Data Protection Law or weaken the protections for such Personal Data) by notifying DroneDeploy promptly in writing within ten (10) business days after receipt of DroneDeploy’s notice in accordance with the mechanism set out in Section 4.2. Such notice shall explain the reasonable grounds for the objection. In the event Customer objects to a new Subprocessor, DroneDeploy will use commercially reasonable efforts to make available to Customer a change in the Services or recommend commercially reasonable change to Customer’s configuration or use of the Services to avoid Processing of Personal Data by the objected-to new Subprocessor without unreasonably burdening Customer. If DroneDeploy is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period of time, which shall not exceed thirty (30) days, either party may terminate without penalty the applicable End User License Agreement(s) with respect only to those Services which cannot be provided by DroneDeploy without the use of the objected-to new Subprocessor by providing written notice to DroneDeploy.

5. Security

Controls for the Protection of Personal Data. DroneDeploy shall maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures for protection of the security (including protection against unauthorized or unlawful Processing and against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration or damage, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, Personal Data), confidentiality and integrity of Personal Data, as set forth in DroneDeploy’s Information Security Policy.

For clarification, depending on the Service plan purchased by Customer, access to export functionality may incur additional charges and/or require purchase of a Service upgrade.

8. Controller Affiliates

8.1 Contractual Relationship. The parties acknowledge and agree that, by executing the DPA, customer enters into the DPA on behalf itself and, as applicable, in the name and on behalf any Controller affiliates, thereby establishing a separate DPA between DroneDeploy and each such Controller Affiliate subject to the provisions of the Agreement and this Section 8 and Section 9.

8.3.1 Except where applicable Data Protection Laws require the Controller Affiliate to exercise a right or seek any remedy under this DPA against DroneDeploy itself, the parties agree that (i) solely the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall exercise any such right or seek any such remedy on behalf of the Controller Affiliate, and (ii) the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall exercise any such rights under this DPA not separately for each Controller Affiliate individually but in a combined manner for all of its Controller Affiliates together (as set forth, for example, in section 8.3.2 below).
8.3.2 The parties agree that the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall, if carrying out an on-site audit of the DroneDeploy procedures relevant to the protection of personal Data, take all reasonable measures to limit any impact to DroneDeploy by combining, to the extent reasonable, possible several audit requests carried out on behalf of different Controller Affiliates in to one single audit.

  1. Limitations of Liability

Each party’s and all of its Affiliates’ liability, taken together in the aggregate, arising out of or related to this DPA, and all DPAs between Controller Affiliates and DroneDeploy, whether in contract, tort or under any other theory of liability, is subject to the “Limitations of Liability” Section of the Agreement, and any reference in such section to the liability of a parth means the aggregate liability of the party and all of its Affiliates under the agreement and all DPAs together.
