9. Rights of Third Parties
Each Third Party Supplier and Related Party is a third party beneficiary of these Terms. These Terms are not intended to, nor may be deemed to create any rights of enforcement by, any other party.
10. Compliance with International Laws
10.1 Customer agrees to only use Information, Services or software in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and directives (including without limitation applicable Privacy Laws, Anti-Corruption Laws, legislation and regulations regarding anti-spam, export control, marketing by means of electronic communications services, customer solicitation, consumer protection and consumer credit).
For purposes of these Terms:
“Anti-Corruption Laws” means the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act and the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business (and any other applicable anti-corruption legislation, guidelines and industry standards from time-to-time in force in a relevant jurisdiction);
“Privacy Laws” means the Directive 95/46/EC (Data Protection) (and any other applicable data protection legislation, guidelines and industry standards from time-to-time in force in a relevant jurisdiction, relating to the use and processing of personal data in that jurisdiction).
10.2 Privacy Principles for EU Personal Data
This Section applies only to the extent that Personal Data from the European Union (and as defined by European data protection legislation) is requested by Customer from D&B as part of the Trial. Personal Data from the European Union can only be transferred in accordance with applicable data protection laws, which currently require parties outside of jurisdictions deemed adequate by the EU to (i) enter into the EU standard contractual clauses, or (ii) process Personal Data in a manner consistent with privacy principles designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission available at https://www.privacyshield.gov (“Privacy Principles”). D&B has certified to the Privacy Shield framework in order to legally transfer Personal Data to Customer, and accordingly, Customer and D&B each warrants and undertakes that: i) use of Personal Data will be for limited and legitimate purposes as specified in the Trial; ii) Each party will provide the same level of protection as the Privacy Principles and will notify the other party if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet this obligation; and (iii) upon notice, including under (ii), take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop processing such Personal Data or remediate unauthorized use.
Where Customer (including as an EEA-based data controller) provides EEA personal data to D&B (as an EEA-based data processor), and D&B needs to process such personal data in a country outside of the EEA in order to perform the Services, D&B and its non-EEA sub-processors shall (where required) only process such personal data on Customer's behalf in accordance with an EU approved data transfer mechanism.
To the extent that Customer transfers to D&B, any personal information subject to European Privacy Legislation, D&B will process such personal information in accordance with the D&B EU Data Processing Agreement. Notwithstanding Section 2 above in case of conflict between this Trial Agreement, and the D&B EU Data Processing Agreement, the D&B EU Data Processing Agreement shall prevail. For purposes of this Agreement, "D&B EU Data Processing Agreement" means the agreement retained at www.dnb.co.uk/dpa as updated from time to time as required of D&B by the European Privacy Legislation; and "European Privacy Legislation" means Directive 95/46/EC (Data Protection) and European Union Regulation 2016/679 and any other applicable data protection legislation including implementing legislation, guidelines and industry standards from time-to-time in force in a relevant jurisdiction, relating to the use and processing of personal information in that jurisdiction.
D&B reserves the right, on reasonable notice to Customer, to enter Customer's premises to audit Customer's compliance with the terms of this the Trial Agreement and Customer agrees to fully cooperate with D&B in such regard.
We reserve all rights not expressly granted herein. These Terms bind and inure to the benefit of the parties and their successors and permitted assigns, except that you may not assign these Terms (including directly, indirectly, by operation of law, through a direct or indirect change in control, or otherwise) without our prior written consent. Nothing in these Terms shall constitute a partnership or joint venture between you and D&B. Our failure at any time or times to require performance of any provision hereof shall in no manner affect our right at a later time to enforce the same unless the same is waived in writing. The laws of the State of New Jersey, (without giving effect to its conflicts of interest law principles) govern all the matters, including tort claims, arising out of or relating to this Trial Agreement, including, without limitation, its validity, interpretation, construction, performance, and enforcement. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act are expressly disclaimed. These Terms constitute the final, complete and exclusive agreement with respect to the Services and the Trial and may not be contradicted, explained or supplemented by evidence of any prior or contemporaneous agreement. All prior agreements, both oral and written, between the parties on the matters contained in these Terms are expressly cancelled and superseded by these Terms. Any amendments of or waivers relating to these Terms must be in writing signed by a duly authorized representative of D&B.
