  • provide clear and sufficient information to the individuals concerned of the Purpose, the legal basis for the Purposes and such other information as is required by Article 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR);
  • provide such assistance as is reasonably required to enable the other party to comply with requests from the individuals to whom the Shared Personal Data relates to exercise their rights under any relevant data protection legislation within the time limits imposed by such legislation.

The Shared Personal Data is uploaded to our Site by the individual. As such we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information.

You hereby confirm that:

  • you will not retain or process the Shared Personal data for longer than is necessary to carry out the Purpose;

Each party will comply with its obligation to report a Personal Data Breach to the appropriate Supervisory Authority and (where applicable) data subjects under Article 33 of the GDPR and shall each inform the other party of any Personal Data Breach irrespective of whether there is a requirement to notify any Supervisory Authority or data subject(s).

The parties agree to provide reasonable assistance as is necessary to each other to facilitate the handling of any Personal Data Breach in an expeditious and compliant manner.
