Standard Contractual Clauses

We have drafted this DPA to include all possible SCC configurations. Not all of them may apply to you. For greater clarity:  

  • If you are an EU or UK Customer, you do not need SCCs, as you contract with Momentive’s Irish entity, and no SCCs are needed between EU/UK entities.
  • If you are a US Customer and consider yourself a data controller, Section 9.2(a) applies to you. You are the controller and the exporter, and Momentive is the processor and the importer. SCC Module 2 applies to your contract. 
  • If you are a US Customer and consider yourself a processor, Section 9.2(b) applies to you. You are the processor and the exporter, and Momentive is the (sub)processor and importer. SCC Module 3 applies to your contract. 
  • If you are not located in the US, EU, or UK, but you choose to use our EU data storage, Section 9.2(c) applies to you. You are the controller and the importer, and Momentive is the processor and exporter. SCC Module 4 applies to your contract.

(d) co-operate as reasonably requested by Customer to enable Customer to comply with any exercise of rights by a data subject afforded to data subjects by Data Protection Legislation in respect of Personal Data processed by Momentive in providing the Services; 

(e) provide assistance, where necessary, with requests received directly from a Data Subject in respect of a Data Subject's Personal Data submitted through the Services;

(j) Where required by Data Protection Legislation, Momentive will inform Customer if it comes to its attention that any instructions received by Customer infringe the provisions of Data Protection Legislation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Momentive shall have no obligation to monitor or review the lawfulness of any instruction received from the Customer; and

(k) Momentive certifies that it understands the restrictions and obligations set forth in this DPA and that it will comply with them. 

6.1 Subprocessing. Customer provides a general authorization to Momentive to engage onward subprocessors, subject to compliance with the requirements in this Section 6.

6.2 Subprocessor List. Momentive will, subject to the confidentiality provisions of the Agreement or otherwise imposed by Momentive:

(a) make available to Customer a list of the Momentive subcontractors who are involved in processing or subprocessing Customer Personal Data in connection with the provision of the Services (“Subprocessors”), together with a description of the nature of services provided by each Subprocessor (“Subprocessor List”). A copy of this Subprocessor List may be requested here; 

(b) ensure that all Subprocessors on the Subprocessor List are bound by contractual terms that are in all material respects no less onerous than those contained in this DPA; and 

(c) be liable for the acts and omissions of its Subprocessors to the same extent Momentive would be liable if performing the services of each of those Subprocessors directly under the terms of this DPA, except as otherwise set forth in the Agreement. 

6.3 New / Replacement Subprocessors.  Momentive will provide Customer with written notice of the addition of any new Subprocessor or replacement of an existing Subprocessor at any time during the term of the Agreement (“New Subprocessor Notice”). The Customer will sign up to a mailing list made available by Momentive through which such notices will be delivered by e-mail or alternatively will check on updates to the list here. If Customer has a reasonable basis to object to Momentive’s use of a new or replacement Subprocessor, Customer will notify Momentive promptly in writing and in any event within 30 days after receipt of a New Subprocessor Notice. In the event of such reasonable objection, either Customer or Momentive may terminate the portion of any Agreement relating to the Services that cannot be reasonably provided without the objected-to new Subprocessor (which may, at Momentive's discretion and election, involve termination of the entire Agreement) with immediate effect by providing written notice to the other party. Such termination will be without a right of refund for any fees prepaid by Customer for the period following termination.

7.1 Security Measures. Momentive has, taking into account the state of the art, cost of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of the Services and the level of risk, implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures (in accordance with Appendix 1) to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk of unauthorized or unlawful processing, accidental loss of and/or damage to Customer Data. At reasonable intervals, Momentive tests and evaluates the effectiveness of these technical and organizational measures for ensuring the security of the processing.

7.2 Security Incident and Breach Notification. If Momentive becomes aware of any unauthorized or unlawful access to, or acquisition, alteration, use, disclosure, or destruction of, Customer Personal Data (“Security Incident”), Momentive will take reasonable steps to notify Customer without undue delay. A Security Incident does not include unsuccessful attempts or activities that do not compromise the security of Personal Data, including unsuccessful log-in attempts, pings, port scans, denial of service attacks, or other network attacks on firewalls or networked systems. Any notification of a Security Incident to the Customer does not constitute any acceptance of liability by Momentive.

7.3 Momentive will also reasonably cooperate with Customer with respect to any investigations relating to a Security Incident with preparing any required notices, and provide any information reasonably requested by Customer in relation to any Security Incident. 

8.1 Audits. Where Momentive is processing Customer Personal Data for Customer as a processor (only), the Customer will provide Momentive with at least one month's prior written notice of any audit, which may be conducted by Customer or an independent auditor appointed by Customer (provided that no person conducting the audit shall be, or shall act on behalf of, a competitor of Momentive) (“Auditor”). The scope of an audit will be as follows:

(a) Customer will only be entitled to conduct an audit once per subscription year unless otherwise legally compelled or required by a regulator with established authority over the Customer to perform or facilitate the performance of more than 1 audit in that same year (in which circumstances Customer and Momentive will, in advance of any such audits, agree upon a reasonable reimbursement rate for Momentive's audit expenses).

(b) Momentive agrees, subject to any appropriate and reasonable confidentiality restrictions, to provide evidence of any certifications and compliance standards it maintains and will, on request, make available to Customer an executive summary of Momentive’s most recent annual penetration tests, which summary shall include remedial actions taken by Momentive resulting from such penetration tests.

(d) Customer will promptly notify and provide Momentive on a confidential basis with full details regarding any perceived non-compliance or security concerns discovered during the course of an audit.

8.2 The parties agree that, except as otherwise required by order or other binding decree of a supervisory authority or regulator with authority over the Customer, this Section 8 sets out the entire scope of the Customer’s audit rights as against Momentive.
