In accordance with Data Protection Laws, as applicable, echo3D will notify you without undue delay of a Personal Data Breach affecting Personal Data echo3D Processes in connection with the Service. Upon request, echo3D will provide information to you about the Personal Data Breach to the extent necessary for you to fulfill any obligations you have to investigate or notify authorities, except that echo3D reserves the right to redact information that is confidential or competitively sensitive. Notifications will be delivered to the email address you provide in your account. You agree that email notification of a Personal Data Breach is sufficient. You agree that echo3D may not notify you of security-related events that do not result in a Personal Data Breach.

7. Subprocessors

  1. Authorized Subprocessors. You specifically authorize the engagement of echo3D’s affiliates to process Personal Data and you generally authorize the engagement of any other third parties as Subprocessors to process Personal Data.
  2. Obligations of Subprocessor. In accordance with the Data Protection Laws, as applicable, echo3D will impose legally binding contract terms on each Subprocessor that are as restrictive as those contained in this DPA.
  3. Restricted Access. echo3D will ensure each Subprocessor only accesses and uses Personal Data to the extent required to perform the obligations subcontracted to it and in accordance with this DPA.

In accordance with Data Protection Laws, as applicable, Schedule 1 contains a list of: (i) all Subprocessors involved in processing Personal Data; (ii) the purposes for which the Subprocessors process Personal Data; and (iii) the location of each Subprocessor. echo3D will notify the Controller via email or other contact methods at least 30 days before adding a new Subprocessor.
  5. Right to Object. Controller has the right to object to the addition of a new Subprocessor, as described in this Section. If the Controller reasonably objects to the processing of Personal Data by any newly appointed Subprocessor, it will immediately inform echo3D, after which echo3D will instruct the Subprocessor to cease any further processing of Personal Data in connection with echo3D’s provision of Service to Controller under the Terms, and the parties will enter into good faith negotiations to resolve the matter. If the parties are unable to resolve the matter within 15 days of Controller’s reasonable objection (which deadline the parties may extend by written agreement), Controller may terminate the Terms or any statement of work, purchase order, or other written agreements. The parties agree that echo3D has sole discretion to determine whether Controller’s objection is reasonable; however, the parties agree that Controller’s objection is presumptively reasonable if the Subprocessor is a competitor of Controller and Controller has a reason to believe that such competitor could obtain a competitive advantage from the Personal Data echo3D discloses to it, or you anticipate that echo3D’s use of the Subprocessor would be contrary to law applicable to Controller.
  6. Subprocessor Liability. echo3D acknowledges and agrees that it will remain liable to the Controller for a breach of the terms of this DPA by a Subprocessor and any other subsequent third-party processors appointed by it.

8. International Data Transfer

  1. If the Controller is established in the EEA, Switzerland or the UK and transfers Personal Data to echo3D, then the the Standard Contractual Clauses or the UK IDTA Addendum, as applicable, shall: (i) apply to such transfers; (ii) take precedence over all other terms, including the terms of this DPA, in respect of such transfers; (iii) form a legally binding contract between you as the data exporter and echo3D as or on behalf of the data importer; and (iv) be hereby incorporated into the Terms.
