    2. Processor will not collect, use, retain, share, disclose, or otherwise make Personal Data available for Processor’s own commercial purposes or in any way that does not comply with the CCPA. This includes combining the Personal Data that Processor receives from Scout with Personal Data Processor receives from or on behalf of another person or persons or that Processor collects from its own interaction with any third parties. Processor will refrain from taking any action that would cause any transfers of Personal Data to or from Scout to qualify as “selling” or “sharing” as those terms are defined in the CCPA. If a law requires the Processor to disclose Personal Data for a purpose unrelated to the Contracted Business Purpose, the Processor must first inform Scout of the legal requirement and give Scout an opportunity to object or challenge the requirement.

    3. Processor will limit Personal Data collection, use, retention, and disclosure to activities reasonably necessary and proportionate to achieve the Contracted Business Purposes or another compatible operational purpose and agrees to keep all Personal Data strictly confidential.

    5. Scout shall have the right to take reasonable and appropriate steps to help ensure that Processor uses the Personal Data transferred in a manner consistent with Scout’s obligations under Privacy and Data Protection Laws. Processor additionally grants Scout the right, upon reasonable notice, to take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate any unauthorized use of Personal Data by Processor.

    1. Processor certifies to Controller that it understands this DPA's and the CCPA's restrictions and prohibitions on selling or sharing Personal Data and retaining, using, or disclosing Personal Data outside of the Parties' direct business relationship, and it will comply with them.

    2. Processor represents and warrants to Controller that it has no reason to believe any CCPA requirements or restrictions prevent it from providing any of the Contracted Business Purposes or otherwise performing under this DPA or the Parties’ Agreement. Processor must promptly notify Scout of any changes to the CCPA’s requirements that may adversely affect its performance under this DPA or the Parties’ Agreement.

    3. Processor represents and warrants to Controller that it is receiving Personal Data only because it is necessary for the Processor to perform the Contracted Business Purposes.


  1. Return or Deletion of Personal Data.

Further, Processor shall return or delete Personal Data to Controller any time upon Controller’s written request.

  3. Applicable Law. In the event applicable law prevents the destruction or return of certain Personal Data received by Processor, the Processor warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of such Personal Data and will not actively Process the Personal Data, and will guarantee the return or the destruction of Personal Data as requested by Controller when the legal obligation to not return or destroy the Personal Data is no longer in effect. To extent permitted by law, Processor shall notify Controller of any such retention obligation in writing and provide the retention schedules for all records retained by Processor.

Either of these courts shall have proper venue for any such lawsuit or judicial proceeding, and the Parties hereby irrevocably waive any objection to venue, personal jurisdiction, or their convenience as a forum.
