4. SUB-PROCESSING

1. The Customer grants a general authorization: (a) to Musicians Health Lab to appoint any Affiliate as sub-processors, and (b) to Musicians Health Lab and any Affiliate to appoint any Verified Technical Resource to act as third party data center operators, and outsourced marketing, business, engineering and customer support providers as sub-processors to support the performance of the Service.

2. Musicians Health Lab will only use a Verified Technical Resource as sub-processors of any Personal Data. If Musicians Health Lab is reasonably able to provide the Service to the Customer in accordance with the Terms of Use without using the sub-processor and decides in its discretion to do so, then the Customer will have no further rights under this clause 4.2 in respect of the proposed use of the sub-processor. If Musicians Health Lab requires use of a sub-processor in its discretion and Customer does not want Musicians Health Lab to use a Verified Technical Resource as a sub-processor, Customer may provide written notification of any objections to Musicians Health Lab. Within ninety (90) days from the Customer's notification of objections, the Customer may within thirty (30) days following the end of the ninety (90) day period referred to above, terminate the applicable Order Form without refund. If the Customer does not provide a timely objection to the use of a Verified Technical Resource in accordance with this clause 4.2, the Customer will be deemed to have consented to the use of any Verified Technical Resource as a sub-processor and waived its right to object. Musicians Health Lab may use a new or replacement Verified Technical Resource as a sub-processor whilst the objection procedure in this clause 4.2 is in process.

3. Musicians Health Lab will ensure that any sub-processor it engages to provide an aspect of the Service on its behalf in connection with this DPA does so only on the basis of a written contract which imposes on such sub-processor terms substantially no less protective of Personal Data than those imposed on Musicians Health Lab in this DPA (the "Relevant Terms"). Musicians Health Lab shall procure the performance by such sub-processor of the Relevant Terms and shall be liable to the Customer for any breach by such person of any of the Relevant Terms.

5. AUDIT AND RECORDS

1. Musicians Health Lab shall, in accordance with EU Data Protection Laws, make available to the Customer such information in Musicians Health Lab’s possession or control as the Customer may reasonably request with a view to demonstrating Musicians Health Lab’s compliance with the obligations of data processors under EU Data Protection Law in relation to its processing of Personal Data.

2. The Customer may exercise its right of audit under EU Data Protection Laws in relation to Personal Data, through Musicians Health Lab providing:

a. an audit report not older than eighteen (18) months, prepared by an independent external auditor demonstrating that Musicians Health Lab’s technical and organizational measures are sufficient and in accordance with an accepted industry audit standard;

b. additional information in Musicians Health Lab’s possession or control to an EU supervisory authority when it requests or requires additional information in relation to the processing of Personal Data carried out by Musicians Health Lab under this DPA; and

c. Customer shall cover all costs incurred by Musicians Health Lab in connection with any such audit.

6. DATA TRANSFERS

1. To the extent any processing of Personal Data by Musicians Health Lab takes place in any country outside the EEA (except if in an Adequate Country), the parties agree that the standard contractual clauses approved by the EU authorities under EU Data Protection Laws will apply in respect of that processing, and Musicians Health Lab will comply with the obligations of the ‘data importer’ in the standard contractual clauses and the Customer will comply with the obligations of the 'data exporter'.

2. The Customer acknowledges and accepts that the provision of the Service under the Terms of Use may require the processing of Personal Data by sub-processors in countries outside the EEA.

3. If, in the performance of this DPA, Musicians Health Lab transfers any Personal Data to a Verified Technical Sub-processor located outside of the EEA (without prejudice to clause 4), Musicians Health Lab shall in advance of any such transfer ensure that a legal mechanism to achieve adequacy in respect of that processing is in place, such as:

a. the requirement for Musicians Health Lab to execute or procure that the Verified Technical Sub-processor execute to the benefit of the Customer standard contractual clauses approved by the EU authorities under EU Data Protection Laws;

b. the requirement for the Verified Technical Sub-processor to be certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework; or

c. the existence of any other specifically approved safeguard for data transfers (as recognized under EU Data Protection Laws) and/or a European Commission finding of adequacy.

4. The following terms shall apply to the standard contractual clauses:

a. The Customer may exercise its right of audit under clause 5.1(f) of the standard contractual clauses as set out in, and subject to the requirements of, clause 5.2 of this DPA; and

b. Musicians Health Lab may appoint Verified Technical Sub-processors as set out, and subject to the requirements of, clauses 4 and 6.3 of this DPA.

Other than in respect of statements made fraudulently, no other representations or terms shall apply or form part of this DPA. No modification of, amendment to, or waiver of any rights under the DPA will be effective unless in writing and signed by an authorized signatory of each party. This DPA may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which, taken together, shall constitute one and the same agreement. Each person signing below represents and warrants that he or she is duly authorized and has legal capacity to execute and deliver this DPA.
