Data Processing AgreementLast updated at: November 14, 2021
"You" or "customer" refers to the company or organization that signs up to use the SimpleLocalize.io
In this Data Processing Agreement ("DPA"), "Data Protection Legislation" means the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/279), and all other applicable laws relating to processing of data and privacy that may exist in any relevant jurisdiction.
"data controller", "data processor", "data subject", "personal data" and "processing" shall be interpreted in accordance with applicable Data Protection Legislation.
The parties agree that customer is the data controller and that SimpleLocalize.io is its data processor in relation to data that is processed in the course of providing the service.

Processor’s obligations with respect to the controller
We as humans can access your data to help you with support requests you make and to maintain and safeguard SimpleLocalize.io to ensure the security of your data and the service as a whole. SimpleLocalize.io shall ensure that all SimpleLocalize personnel required to access the data are trained in GDPR and data privacy, informed of the confidential nature of the data and comply with the obligations sets out in this agreement.
SimpleLocalize.io shall implement and maintain appropriate technical and organisational security measures designed to protect the data against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, damage, theft, alteration or disclosure. These measures shall be appropriate to the harm which might result from any unauthorised or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction, damage or theft of the data and having regard to the nature of the data which is to be protected.
We do work with sub-processors. Any such sub-processors will be permitted to process data only to deliver the services SimpleLocalize.io has retained them to provide, and they shall be prohibited from using data for any other purpose. SimpleLocalize.io shall notify the controller when modifying the list of sub-processors using our in-app notifications, email and/or blog. The controller is able to legitimately object and may terminate the agreement.
If SimpleLocalize.io becomes aware of any accidental, unauthorised or unlawful security breach, destruction, loss, alteration, or disclosure of the personal data that is processed by SimpleLocalize.io in the course of providing the service, it shall without undue delay (not later than 48 hours after having become aware of it), notify customer by email and provide customer with a description of the incident as well as periodic updates to information about the incident, including its impact on customer content. SimpleLocalize.io shall additionally take action to investigate the incident and reasonably prevent or mitigate the effects of the incident.
SimpleLocalize.io shall not on its own authority rectify, erase or restrict the processing of data that is being processed on behalf of the controller (unless this is required by law or the Processor Terms of Service), but shall only do so on documented instructions from the controller and in accordance to the data retention rules associated to the controller subscription plan.
SimpleLocalize.io shall notify customer without undue delay if, in SimpleLocalize.io’s opinion, an instruction for the processing of data given by customer infringes applicable Data Protection Legislation.
SimpleLocalize.io shall assist the controller in complying with the obligations concerning the security of personal data. SimpleLocalize.io will also provide assistance to the controller for DPIAs. Where a data subject asserts their rights as a data subject, this request will be forwarded to the controller without delay.
