SPS Data Processing Addendum (DPA)

This Data Processing Addendum (“DPA”) forms part of the Terms and Conditions (“Agreement”) between Southern Payment Services (“SPS”) and You for the purchase of Payment Service, to reflect the parties’ agreement with regard to the Processing of Personal Data.

By using Pin Payments, you, as the Merchant, accept and agree to our:

  1. Terms of Service
  2. Privacy Policy
  3. Data Processing Addendum

1. Definitions

It is important that all parties have a clear understanding about what data and whose data is protected under this DPA. The following definitions help identify the scope of this DPA, and interpretations from the Terms of Service apply to this DPA.

“Controller” is the party that determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data – you are the controller with respect to customer personal data.

“Data Protection Laws” means any applicable data protection or privacy laws of any country, and includes EU Data Protection Laws;

“Processor” is the party that processes personal data on behalf of the controller – Pin Payments is the processor of the personal data we process about your customers.

“Merchant” refers to the company or organization that signs up to use the Payment Service to process transactions on behalf of their customers. The Merchant is the Controller for the purpose of the Agreement

“Sub-processor” means any person (including any Third Party, but excluding our employees, contractors or advisors) appointed by us or on our behalf to process Personal Data;

“Personnel” refers to those individuals who are employed by or are under contract to perform a service on behalf of one of the parties. Personnel may have rights in their personal data (including business contact information) if they reside in the EU. It is important to be clear about how personnel’s rights are protected.

“Data Subjects” refers to those individuals residing in the EU who are customers of a Merchant’s goods or services, as well as any personnel who reside in the EU.

“Personal Data” refers to any data relating directly or indirectly to an identifiable data subject. Personal data does not include any data that is anonymized, aggregated, de-identified and/or compiled on a generic basis and which does not name or identify a specific individual, directly or indirectly.

“Processing” is given the same meaning as in the GDPR, which we summarize as including: collecting, recording, using, storing, amending, adapting, disclosing, transferring or transmitting, structuring, using, combining, deleting or destroying, personal data (“Process” and “Processed” shall have similar meanings).

“Incident” means: (a) a complaint or a request with respect to the exercise of an individual’s rights under the GDPR; (b) an investigation into or seizure of the personal data by government officials, or a specific indication that such an investigation or seizure is imminent; or (c) any breach of the security and/or confidentiality as set out in this DPA leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, the personal data, or any indication of such breach having taken place or being about to take place.

2. Processing of Personal Data

2.1 Role of the parties

The parties acknowledge and agree that with regard to the Processing of Personal Data, you (the Merchant) is the Controller, Pin Payments is the Processor and that Pin Payments will engage Sub-processors pursuant to the requirements set forth in Section 3 “Sub-processors” of this Addendum.

2.2 Our obligations

(a) We will comply with the applicable Data Protection Laws in the Processing of Personal Data.

(b) We shall collect, process and use Personal Data only within the scope of Controller’s documented instructions, for the following purposes: (i) Processing in accordance with the Agreement; (ii) Processing initiated by Controller’s customers, and (iii) Processing to comply with some other documented, reasonable instructions provided by Controller (e.g. through email) where instructions are consistent with the Agreement.

We will reasonably cooperate so you can perform a thorough investigation into the incident, to formulate a correct response, and to take suitable steps in respect of the incident.

2.3 Your obligations

(a) You warrant that you have the necessary consent to provide Pin Payments the instructions (and authorise us to instruct each Sub-processor) to process Personal Data in relation to the provision of the Payment Service.

(b) You warrant and represent that you are and will at all relevant times remain duly and effectively authorised to give the instruction set out in clause 2.3(a) on behalf of each of your Organisations, Staff Members or Informants authorised or deemed to be authorised by you to use the Payment Service.

3. Sub-processors

3.1 You authorise Pin Payments to appoint Sub-processors (and permit each Sub-processor to appoint Sub-processors) in accordance with this clause 3.

3.2 We may continue to use Sub-processors already engaged by us as at the date of this Addendum, subject to us in each case as soon as practicable meeting the obligations set out in clause 3.4.

3.3 We warrant that for any active Sub-processor, we will have entered into a written agreement with the Sub-processor containing data protection obligations not less protective than those in this Agreement with respect to the protection of Personal Data to the extent applicable to the nature of the Services provided by such Sub-processor.

4. Security

4.1 We will implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure Personal Data against loss or any form of unlawful Processing.

4.2 Taking into account the state of the art and the costs of their implementation, these measures guarantee an appropriate security level given the risks associated with Processing and the nature of the Personal Data to be protected.
