Suppose We receive a request directly from Your Data Subject to exercise one or more of their rights under Applicable Data Protection Laws. In that case, We will direct the Data Subject to You unless prohibited by law. 

8. Security

We will comply with Your instructions at no additional charge, provided that if Your instructions impose costs on Us beyond those included in the scope of Services under the Agreement, the parties agree to negotiate in good faith to determine the additional costs. We will promptly inform You if We believe that Your instructions are inconsistent with Applicable Data Protection Laws, provided that We will not be obligated to inspect or verify Your Processing of Personal Data independently. 

We will provide You with information reasonably necessary to assist You in enabling Your compliance with Your obligations under Applicable Data Protection Laws, including, without limitation, Our obligations under the EU General Data Protection Regulation to implement appropriate data security measures, carry out a data protection impact assessment and consult the competent Supervisory Authority (taking into account the nature of Processing and the information available to Us), and as further specified in this DPA. 

11. Return and Deletion of Personal Data 

We will return or provide an opportunity for You to retrieve all Personal Data after the end of the provision of Services and delete existing copies. With respect to cloud services, You shall have thirty (30) calendar days to download Your Data after the termination of the Agreement, and You must contact technical support for download access and instructions. In the event You do not get technical support for this purpose within 30 calendar days after the end of the provision of Services, We shall delete Your Data promptly once that Personal Data is no longer accessible by You, except for (i) back-ups deleted in the ordinary course, and (ii) retention as required by applicable law or normal IT operations. In the event of either (i) or (ii), We will continue to comply with the relevant provisions of this DPA until such data has been deleted. We will provide written confirmation of deletion upon request. 

12. Audit 

Suppose the information you request of LighthouseAI under Section 11 above does not satisfy your obligations under Applicable Data Protection Laws. In that case, You may audit our Processing of Your Data once per year or as otherwise required by Applicable Data Protection Laws. To request an audit, you must provide Us with a proposed detailed audit plan three weeks in advance, and We will work with you in good faith to agree on a final written project. Any such audit shall be conducted at Your own expense, during regular business hours, without disruption to our business, and in accordance with our security rules and requirements. Before any audit, We undertake to provide You reasonably requested information and associated evidence to satisfy Your audit obligations, and You undertake to review this information before undertaking any independent audit. Suppose any of the requested scope of the audit is covered by an audit report issued to Us by a qualified third-party auditor within the prior twelve months. In that case, the parties agree that the scope of Your audit will be reduced accordingly. 

You may use a third-party auditor with our Agreement, which will not be unreasonably withheld. Before any third-party audit, such an auditor must execute an appropriate confidentiality agreement with us. Suppose the third party is Your Supervisory Authority that applicable law enables it to audit Us directly. In that case, we will cooperate with and provide reasonable assistance to the Supervisory Authority in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Laws. 

You will provide us with a copy of any final report unless prohibited by Applicable Data Protection Laws, will treat the findings as Confidential Information in accordance with the terms of the Agreement (or confidentiality agreement entered into between You and LighthouseAI), and use it solely for the purpose of assessing our compliance with the terms of the Agreement, this DPA, and Applicable Data Protection Laws 

13. Term 

This DPA becomes effective upon Your purchase of the Services. Termination of the Agreement does not relieve either party of its obligations under this DPA. LighthouseAI reserves the right to revise this DPA to meet changing regulatory and compliance needs subject to the commitments of Section 8.  When it does so, LighthouseAI will update the “Last revised” date” at the top.
