2. Defined Terms
When we use the defined terms below, they have the following meanings:

Personal Data: Information relating to an identified or identifiable individual, who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number (like a customer number or vehicle registration number), location data, an online identifier (like an IP address or email address), or video/ surveillance feed.
Processing (of Personal Data): Anything done with or to Personal Data, whether or not by automated means, including collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

3. Changes to these Terms
4. Privacy Responsibilities
Both parties will comply with all applicable requirements of Applicable Law.
Other than Personal Data that you collect on our behalf and transmit directly to us such as basic Product registration information, and the MAC Address and IP address, etc. that we collect directly from the Product without your involvement, you are the Data Controller of all End Users' Personal Data that you handle in the course of your role as an authorized Dealer (including, but not limited to, the provision of Your Services).
Being Data Controller means that you are legally responsible for keeping Personal Data safe and secure and for ensuring that your collection, storage, sharing and use of Personal Data always takes place in accordance with Applicable Law. Note that we collect certain Personal Data directly from End Users and for the data that is transmitted directly to us without your involvement, such as a product's MAC ID etc., we shall be the Data Controller. Without prejudice to the generality of this Section, you will ensure that you have all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of the personal data to us for the duration and purposes of this agreement.
If you use any third parties to collect, store or handle Personal Data for you, they will be a Data Processor, acting on your behalf. This includes any independent contractors that you use. In some states and countries, you must have a written agreement in place with Data Processors before allowing them access to Personal Data.
5. Data Management
As a Data Controller of End User Personal Data, you have specific obligations to End Users, relating to privacy and data handling, under Applicable Law. If a Dealer fail their obligations to End Users it is likely to have a negative impact upon our reputation and that of our Products. Accordingly, we require that you adhere to the terms of this Section in relation to your handling of End User, unless they conflict with Applicable Law. You must:
(a) Collect and process Personal Data only after obtaining written permission to do so and in line with your agreement with Customers or otherwise on their clear instructions, unless you are required by Applicable Law to process the Personal Data for other purposes;
(b) Ensure that you have in place appropriate technical and organizational measures, which can be reviewed and approved by us, upon request, to protect against unauthorized or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Personal Data, appropriate to the harm that might result from the unauthorized or unlawful access to such data, processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected;
(c) Respond to any request relating to data privacy, from an End User made under Applicable Law, or provide such information or assistance as we may reasonably require to enable us to respond to any such requests received by us;
(d) Comply with your obligations under Applicable Law with respect to security, breach notifications, impact assessments and consultations with supervisory authorities or regulators and provide us with any information or assistance as we may reasonably require in order to enable us to meet any obligations to which we are subject;
(e) Notify us without undue delay and in any event within 24 hours on becoming aware of a Personal Data breach which impacts End Users;
(f) Ensure that you have entered into any agreements with third party data processors as are required by us or by Applicable Law, which incorporate terms that are substantially similar to those set out in this clause 5, remembering that you remain fully liable for all acts or omissions of any third-party data processor appointed by you.
