Mimeo will provide to Customer each year an opinion report provided by an accredited, third-party audit firm standards applicable to the services under the Agreement (“Report”). If a Report does not provide, in Customer’s reasonable judgment, sufficient information to confirm Mimeo’s compliance with the terms of this DPA, then Customer or an accredited third-party audit firm agreed to by both Customer and Mimeo may audit Mimeo’s compliance with the terms of this DPA during regular business hours, with reasonable advance notice to Mimeo (with no less than 10 business days) and subject to reasonable confidentiality procedures. Customer is responsible for all costs and fees related to such audit, including all reasonable costs and fees for any and all time Mimeo expends for any such audit, in addition to the rates for services performed by Mimeo.

Customer shall promptly notify Mimeo with information regarding any non-compliance discovered during the course of an audit. Customer may not audit Mimeo more than once annually.
- DATA TRANSFERS
For transfers of EU Personal Data to Mimeo for processing by Mimeo in a jurisdiction other than a jurisdiction in the EU, the EEA, or the European Commission-approved countries providing ‘adequate’ data protection, Mimeo agrees it will (a) provide at least the same level of privacy protection for EU Personal Data as required under the U.S.-EU and U.S.-Swiss Privacy Shield frameworks; or (b) use the form of the Controller-to-Processor SCCs. If data transfers under Section 7 of this DPA rely on Controller-to-Processor SCCs to enable the lawful transfer of EU Personal Data, as set forth in the preceding sentence, the parties agree that data subjects for whom a Mimeo entity processes EU Personal Data are third-party beneficiaries under the Controller-to-Processor SCCs. If Mimeo is unable or becomes unable to comply with these requirements, then EU Personal Data will be processed and used exclusively within the territory of a member state of the European Union and any movement of EU Personal Data to a non-EU country requires the prior written consent of Customer. Mimeo shall promptly notify Customer of any inability by Mimeo to comply with the provisions of this Section 7.
- DATA RETURN AND DELETION
The parties agree that upon Customer’s reasonable written request, Mimeo shall, and shall cause any Subprocessors to, at the choice of Customer, return all the Customer Personal Data and copies of such data to Customer or securely destroy them and demonstrate to the satisfaction of Customer that it has taken such measures, unless Data Protection Requirements prevent Mimeo from returning or destroying all or part of the Customer Personal Data disclosed. In such case, Mimeo agrees to preserve the confidentiality of the Customer Personal Data retained by it and that it will only actively process such Customer Personal Data after such date in order to comply with applicable laws.
- THIRD PARTY DATA PROCESSORS
Customer acknowledges that in the provision of some services, Mimeo, on receipt of instructions from Customer, may transfer Customer Personal Data to and otherwise interact with third party data processors. Customer agrees that if and to the extent such transfers occur, Customer is responsible for entering into separate contractual arrangements with such third party data processors binding them to comply with obligations in accordance with Data Protection Requirements. For avoidance of doubt, such third party data processors are not Subprocessors.
This DPA shall remain in effect as long as Mimeo carries out Personal Data processing operations on behalf of Customer or until the termination of the Mimeo Contract (and all Personal Data has been returned or deleted in accordance with Section 8 above).
- GOVERNING LAW, JURISDICTION, AND VENUE
Notwithstanding anything in the Agreement to the contrary, this DPA shall be governed by the laws of New York State and any action or proceeding related to this DPA (including those arising from non contractual disputes or claims) will be brought in New York.
