This Annex B forms part of the DPA.
Provider currently observes the security measures described in this Annex B.
Outsourced processing: All product infrastructure for production purposes is outsourced to Google Cloud Platform. Provider maintains contractual relationships with Google in order to provide the Service in accordance with our DPA. Provider relies on contractual agreements, privacy policies, and Google compliance programs in order to protect data processed or stored by these vendors.
Application Programming Interface (API) access: Public product APIs may be accessed using an API key or through Oauth authorization.
Authentication: All products are protected by single sign on authentication method and two factor authentication. No access to any customer data is possible without a valid authorised account managed by the customer.
Physical and environmental security: All product infrastructure for production purposes is hosted on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) cloud infrastructure and is protected by their published security process including access control. The physical and environmental security controls are audited for SOC 2 Type II and ISO 27001 compliance, among other certifications.
System Access Controls
The internal Provider teams access to customer data is protected by a least privilege model with two factor authentication enforced as default. All access is logged and monitored.
Network access: Network access control mechanisms are designed to prevent network traffic using unauthorized protocols from reaching the product infrastructure. The technical measures implemented differ between infrastructure providers and include Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) implementations, security group assignment, and traditional firewall rules.
In-transit: Provider makes HTTPS encryption (also referred to as SSL or TLS) available on every one of its login interfaces and for free on every customer site hosted on the products. Provider HTTPS implementation uses industry standard algorithms and certificates.
At-rest: Provider has implemented technologies to ensure that stored data is encrypted at rest.
Detection: Full monitoring and alerting of system behavior, traffic received, system authentication, and other application requests are in place for the products. Internal systems aggregated log data and alert appropriate employees of malicious, unintended, or anomalous activities. Our personnel, including security, operations, and support personnel, are responsive to known incidents.
Response and tracking: Provider maintains a record of all known security incidents that includes description, dates and times of relevant activities, and incident disposition. Suspected and confirmed security incidents are investigated by security, operations, or support personnel; and appropriate resolution steps are identified and documented. For any confirmed incidents, we will take appropriate steps to minimize product and Customer damage or unauthorized disclosure. Notification to you will be in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
Fault tolerance: Backup and replication strategies are designed to ensure redundancy and fail-over protections during a significant processing failure. Customer data is backed up to multiple durable data stores and replicated across multiple availability zones.

Clause 11 – Sub-processing
- The data importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the data exporter under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the data exporter.

In that case, the data importer warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data transferred and will not actively process the personal data transferred anymore.
