However, on an exceptional basis, in certain Projects of the CUSTOMER it might be necessary to process personal data of the Participants. In such case it will be necessary for the CUSTOMER to have obtained from the Participants prior acceptance of the CUSTOMER’s privacy policy which will govern the processing of its personal data in relation to such Projects of the CUSTOMER and, in any event, the following provisions will be applicable:

      1. USERZOOM INC and the CUSTOMER shall duly comply at all times with the provisions contained in the data protection legislation which are applicable in relation to the information and data handled in the course of the supply of the Services the subject-matter of this Contract.

      3. Once the supply of the services has ended, the personal data must be destroyed or returned to the CUSTOMER, as well as any medium or document containing any personal data processed, unless USERZOOM INC is legally obliged to keep them, and for the duration of such obligation.

The CUSTOMER shall also fulfill the obligations contained in the statutory provisions on data protection which affect it as controller of the files containing such data, inter alia, the legal obligations vis-à-vis the data subjects and the competent authority in relation to data protection or body which may replace it, or, where relevant, the authorities with jurisdiction over the matter.

      7. The CUSTOMER authorizes USERZOOM INC to charge it the costs, including any kind of indemnity, penalties and expenses arising from claims of the data subjects, due to failure to obtain the consent of the Participants for the processing of their personal data, or due to the breach because of negligence and/or lack of confidentiality, improper use and/or processing of the personal data, expressly including any amounts arising from the penalties which may be imposed on it by the competent authority in relation to data protection for the breach or defective observance of the legislation applicable on the subject, provided that it is attributable to the CUSTOMER, its employees or persons under its control. In such cases, USERZOOM INC shall notify to the CUSTOMER any claims which it receives, so that the CUSTOMER may intervene at its expense in the legal defense, the CUSTOMER being required to act at all times in a coordinated manner with USERZOOM INC and preserving the image of USERZOOM INC.

Since the supply of such services may require in exceptional cases that the aforementioned companies process personal data of the Participants, in the contract which USERZOOM INC signs with the third-party subcontractors, in relation to the aforementioned processing of personal data, USERZOOM INC shall be deemed to act in any event for and on behalf of the CUSTOMER.
