Relationship of the Parties
The parties acknowledge that each party is an independent controller and nothing in this Agreement shall be interpreted to suggest a “joint controller” relationship as defined by EU Data Protection Law. Recipient agrees that Company makes no guarantees about access to the data and maintains the right to withdraw Recipient’s access to the API for any reason.
Legality of Processing
Each party agrees to comply with any Applicable Data Protection Laws. Unless otherwise stated in this addendum, each party is independently responsible for maintaining their own compliance with Applicable Data Protection Laws.
Use and Purposes
Each party shall independently determine the means and purposes of processing to the extent such means and purposes are legal under EU Data Protection Law and any other applicable privacy laws. Recipient shall have a valid legal basis for processing personal data received through the API from Company. Recipient acknowledges that personal data collected by Company and shared with Recipient through the API under this Agreement is collected from data subjects who have the expectation that the data will be used by third parties solely for the purposes of providing them with games (along with supportive and ancillary services to providing such games, such as analytics, ads, marketing, security, and game optimization). Recipient takes responsibility for obtaining legally valid consent (or other applicable legal basis) for the purposes of marketing communications or any other use of the data.
Data Subject Requests
Each party shall respond to and complies with data subject requests as required by Applicable Data Protection Laws and Recipient shall assist Company with any requests to help Company comply with data subject requests submitted to the Company with respect to data shared via the API. To assist Company with such requests, Recipient shall maintain the ability to comply with a request to access, download, correct, export, and delete data about any data subject as described in the EU Data Protection Law, including through any of Recipient’s sub-processors.
Either party may transfer the data to other countries if it complies with the provisions on the cross-border transfer of personal data to third parties under Applicable Data Protection Laws.
Recipient shall provide a level of protection for personal data that is at least equivalent that required under privacy shield and Applicable Data Protection Laws. If Recipient determines it cannot comply with section, it will notify Company immediately in writing and either cease processing of data or take reasonable and appropriate steps to remedy such non-compliance.
If any provision of this Agreement or the application thereof is held invalid, the invalidity shall not affect other provisions or applications of the Agreement which can be given effect without the invalid provisions or applications and to this end the provisions of this Agreement are declared to be severable.
