2.1.   The parties acknowledge that in relation to all Customer Data, as between the parties, Customer is the Controller of Customer Data, and Walnut is acting as a Processor on behalf of the Customer in the course of providing the Services. 

2.2.   The purpose, subject matter and duration of the Processing carried out by Walnut on behalf of the Customer, the nature and purpose of the Processing, the type of Personal Data and categories of Data Subjects are described in ANNEX I attached hereto.

2.3.   Additional US Data Protection Laws specifications are further detailed in ANNAX VII.


3.1.   The Customer represents and warrants that: (i) its Processing instructions shall comply with applicable Data Protection Law; (ii) it will comply with Data Protection Law, specifically with regards to the lawful basis principal for Processing Personal Data; and (iii) due to the nature of the Services, Walnut does not monitor or control the Customer Data obtained by Walnut’s system and thus, the type of Personal Data or Categories of the Data Subjects processed by it is subject to the Customer’s sole discretion.

3.2.   Walnut represents and warrants that it: (i) shall process Customer Data, on behalf of the Customer, solely for the purpose of providing the Services, all in accordance with Customer’s written instructions including the Agreement and this DPA;  (ii) in the event Walnut is required under applicable laws, including Data Protection Law or any union or member state regulation, to Process Customer Data other than as instructed by Customer, it shall inform the Customer of such requirement prior to Processing such Customer Data, unless prohibited under applicable law; and (iii) shall provide reasonable cooperation and assistance to Customer in ensuring compliance with its obligation to carry out data protection impact assessments.

3.3.   Walnut shall take reasonable steps to ensure: (i) the reliability of its personnel and any other person acting under its supervision who may come into contact with, or otherwise have access to Customer Data; (ii) that the personnel authorized to process the Customer Data (solely on a need to know basis) have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.


4.1.   It is agreed that where Walnut receives a request from a Data Subject or an applicable authority in respect of Customer Data Processed by Walnut, where relevant, it will notify the Customer of such request and direct the Data Subject or the applicable authority to the Customer in order to allow the Customer to respond directly to the Data Subject’s or the applicable authority’s request, unless otherwise required under applicable laws. Both parties shall provide each other with commercially reasonable cooperation and assistance in relation to the handling of a Data Subject’s or applicable authority’s request, to the extent permitted under Data Protection Law.

5.3.   Walnut shall remain fully responsible to the Customer for the performance of the Sub-Processor’s obligations in accordance with the Agreement. Walnut shall notify the Customer of any known failure by the Sub-Processor to fulfill its contractual obligations.

The Audit shall be subject to the terms of this DPA and standard confidentiality obligations (including towards third parties). Walnut may object to an auditor appointed by the Customer in the event Walnut reasonably believes that the auditor is not suitably qualified or is a competitor of Walnut or otherwise unsuitable. Customer shall bear all expenses related to the Audit and shall (and ensure that each of its auditors shall) over the course of such Audit, avoid causing any damage, injury or disruption to Walnut’s business operations.

10.1.   In the event of a conflict between the terms and conditions of this DPA and the Agreement, this DPA shall prevail.

Walnut agrees and hereby represents it maintains, and will continue to maintain, the following additional safeguards in connection with any Personal Data transferred under this Annex:
