Absent a Client request for deletion in accordance with this provision, Transcend will delete Client Personal Data in accordance with its standard data retention policies.
10. Miscellaneous Provisions
a. Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary in the Agreement, and upon reasonable advance notice to Client, Transcend reserves the right to make modifications to this DPA as may be required to comply with applicable Data Protection Law, implement amended standard contractual clauses laid down by the European Commission or United Kingdom, or follow the instructions of a relevant supervisory authority. Client shall promptly notify Transcend if it does not agree to a modification, in which case Transcend may terminate these DPA and the Agreement with two (2) weeks' prior written notice, whereby in the case of an objection not based on non-compliance of the modifications with applicable Data Protection Law, Transcend shall remain entitled to claim its agreed remuneration until the term end.
b. This DPA shall, by default, be concluded between Transcend and Client as well as any subsidiary of Client or a holding company of Client or any other subsidiary of that holding company ("Client Affiliate"), directly or indirectly, bound by the Agreement.

ANNEX II - TECHNICAL AND ORGANISATIONAL MEASURES INCLUDING TECHNICAL AND ORGANISATIONAL MEASURES TO ENSURE THE SECURITY OF THE DATA
Description of the technical and organisational measures implemented by the data importer(s) (including any relevant certifications) to ensure an appropriate level of security, taking into account the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing, and the risks for the rights and freedoms of natural persons.
Transcend has obtained SOC 2 Type II certification. The following table provides more information regarding the technical and organization measures to protect Client Data:
|Technical and Organizational Security Measure||Evidence of Technical and Organizational Security Measures|
|Measures of pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data||All data and communication within Transcend is protected at rest using AES 256-bit encryption, and in transit using Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption 1.2 or higher.|
|Measures for ensuring ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services||Transcend maintains an information security program, which includes: (a) having a formal risk management program; (b) conducting periodic risk assessments of systems and networks that process Client Data; (c) monitoring for security incidents and maintaining a tiered remediation plan to ensure timely fixes to any discovered vulnerabilities; (d) a written information security policy and incident response plan that explicitly addresses and provides guidance to its personnel in furtherance of the security, confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Client Data; (e) penetration testing performed by a qualified third party on an annual basis; and (f) having resources responsible for information security efforts.|
|Measures for ensuring the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident||Transcend's backup policy is based on ISO-27001 standards. Transcend services are replicated to ensure high availability, redundancy, and failure tolerance. Transcend performs at least daily backups for recovery purposes. Backups are encrypted and tested at least annually.|
|Processes for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organizational measures in order to ensure the security of the processing||Transcend’s systems are annually subjected to a wide range of different penetration tests and external audits. The company practices security by design principles by incorporating threat modeling into the design phase for all key features.
Any changes to the code base requires additional testing and review prior to migrating to the production environment. Security tooling is integrated into Transcend’s code pipeline, which incorporates a number of checks for application security vulnerabilities, such as static code analysis, and dependency checking. In addition, members of the security team regularly perform manual application security testing on key components.
|Measures for user identification and authorisation||Transcend systems are managed through an SSO provider which enforces MFA. Transcend observes the principles of “least privilege” and “role based access” meaning access to data and systems are limited to what is necessary in order to fulfill an employee's current job responsibilities. Transcend utilizes segregation of duties to reduce the risk of unauthorized or unintentional modification or misuse of systems or data. Systems require user authentication and user access (including privileged access) to be reviewed quarterly or when changes to personnel occur.|
|Measures for the protection of data during transmission||All data and communication within Transcend is protected in transit using Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption 1.2 or higher.|
|Measures for the protection of data during storage||All data and communication within Transcend is protected at rest using AES 256-bit encryption. By default, Client Data is stored and processed within a secure cloud environment hosted on AWS.|
|Measures for ensuring physical security of locations at which personal data are processed||Transcend utilizes Amazon Web Services (AWS) for hosting. AWS is a leader in infrastructure security, and maintains multiple security and compliance certifications including ISO 27001, SOC 1, SOC 2, and SSAE16.
In addition, all Transcend offices and spaces have a physical security program that manages visitors, building entrances, closed circuit televisions, and overall office security. All employees, contractors, and visitors are required to wear an identification badge.
|Measures for ensuring events logging||All key actions performed within Transcend, such as logins, data writes and configuration changes, are attributable to particular users, and are captured with user information, date and time stamps in the audit logs. Logging data is centralized where it is made available for authorized individuals to monitor and take action in the event of an incident.|
|Measures for ensuring system configuration, including default configuration||Transcend systems are built leveraging baseline configurations which are hardened in accordance with industry best practices like Center for Information Security (CIS).|
|Measures for internal IT and IT security governance and management||Transcend’s IT services are automated and compartmentalized to limit the security risk of any single component of the system. Transcend practices a Zero Trust policy. This means multiple security attributes are assigned to each Transcend team member and user account, and multi-factor authentication is required in order to access any of the company’s IT services. A final layer of security is provided by the NIST Security Risk Management Framework, in which each security risk is assessed according to a set of internal benchmarks, with significant decisions requiring confirmation from Transcend’s senior executive team.|
|Measures for certification/assurance of processes and products||Transcend’s dedicated security and privacy programs are externally audited annually. The company maintains an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 certification. All Transcend’s operations comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In addition, Transcend aligns its security program and capabilities with the Cloud Computer Compliance Controls Catalogue (C5), National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) Cloud Security Principles, and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cloud Computing Standards.|
|Measures for ensuring data minimisation||Transcend only collects information that is necessary in order to provide the Services outlined in the Agreement. Our employees are directed to access only the minimum amount of information necessary to perform the task at hand.|
|Measures for ensuring data quality||Transcend maintains logging details that include any changes to sensitive configuration settings and files. At minimum, log entries include date, timestamp, action performed, and the user ID or the device ID of the action performed. Logs are protected from change.|
|Measures for ensuring limited data retention||Transcend will retain information for the period necessary to provide the Services and for a period of time thereafter in backups, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law, or where the Agreement requires or permits specific retention or deletion periods.|
|Measures for ensuring accountability||Transcend has established a comprehensive GDPR compliance program and is committed to partnering with Clients and vendors on compliance efforts. Specifically, Transcend has taken the following steps to align its practices with GDPR: (i) all employees are required to complete annual GDPR training and security training, (ii) policies and contracts are in place with our partners and vendors to comply with GDPR, (iii) we have enhanced security practices and procedures, (iv) we have implemented tools to produce data maps, (v) we have created robust internal privacy and security documentation, and (vi) we have implemented tools and procedures to respond to data subject access requests.|
|Measures for allowing data portability and ensuring erasure||Transcend provides a mechanism for individuals to exercise their privacy rights in accordance with applicable law. Individuals request that Transcend delete their data or provide a copy of their data here.|
|Technical and organizational measures to be taken by the [sub]-processor to provide assistance to the controller and, for transfers from a processor to a [sub]-processor, to the Client.||When Transcend engages a subprocessor under this DPA, Transcend and the subprocessor enter into an agreement with data protection obligations substantially similar to those contained in this DPA. Each subprocessor must ensure that Transcend is able to meet its obligations to Clients. In addition to implementing technical and organizational measures to protect Client Data, the subprocessors must (a) notify Transcend in the event of a Security Incident, (b) delete Client Personal Data when instructed by Transcend in accordance with Client’s instructions to Transcend; (c) not engage additional subprocessors without Transcend’s authorization; (d) not change the location where Client Personal Data is processed; and (e) not process Client Personal Data in a manner which conflicts with Client’s instructions to Transcend.|
Schedule B - Transcend Subprocessors
Transcend maintains a list of Sub-Processors (including details of the processing each performs or will perform), at the following URL: https://docs.transcend.io/docs/transcends-subprocessors
Transcend imposes data protection terms on any Sub-Processor it appoints that protect the Client Personal Data to a reasonably similar standard provided for by this DPA.
