10.7           The above provisions of this clause 10 shall survive termination of the agreement, however arising.

11.             INDEMNIFICATION AND LIMITATION OF LIABLITY

11.1           SenseCheck will use reasonable efforts to deliver the Services and Data requested by the Customer however the Customer acknowledges that Data and Reports are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis.  The Customer acknowledges that the Services involve conveying information provided to SenseCheck and its Third Party Suppliers by other sources, SenseCheck cannot and will not, for the fee charged for the Services, be an insurer or guarantor of the accuracy or reliability of the Services, the Data or the Reports.  Accordingly, SenseCheck does not guarantee, warrant or represent the accuracy, timeliness, completeness, validity, currentness, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose of the Services, the Data or the Reports and subject to clause 11.4, SenseCheck shall not be liable to the Customer or any third parties for any loss or injury arising out of or caused in whole or in part by SenseCheck’s acts or omissions, whether negligent or otherwise, in procuring, compiling, collecting, interpreting, reporting, communicating or delivering the Services, Data or Reports.

11.2           The Customer will indemnify, defend, and hold SenseCheck and the Third Party Suppliers (and their affiliates) harmless from and against any and all liabilities, damages, losses, claims, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, which may be asserted against or incurred by SenseCheck or the Third Party Suppliers, arising out of or resulting from the use, disclosure, sale or transfer of the Services, Data and/or the Reports (or information therein) by the Customer, or for the Customer’s breach of the agreement. The Customer warrants not to sue or maintain any cause of action, claim, demand, cross claim, third party action or other form of litigation or arbitration against SenseCheck, the Third Party Suppliers or their officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, affiliated bureaus or subscribers arising out of or relating in any way to the Services, the Data or the Reports (or information therein) being blocked by the Third Party Suppliers or not being accurate, timely, complete or current.  The Customer agrees that the Third Party Suppliers and their data suppliers are entitled to enforce the data security, use, legal compliance and indemnification provisions of the agreement directly against the Customer.

11.3           The Customer acknowledges that SenseCheck and/or its Third Party Suppliers maintains a database, updated on a periodic basis, from which the Customer obtains the Services, Data and Reports, and that SenseCheck or its Third Party Suppliers do not undertake a separate investigation for each enquiry or request for Services made by the Customer.  The Customer also acknowledges that the prices SenseCheck charges the Customer for the Services are based upon SenseCheck’s expectation that the risk of any loss or injury that may be incurred by use of the Services will be borne by the Customer and not SenseCheck.  The Customer therefore agrees that it is responsible for determining that the Services are in accordance with SenseCheck’s obligations under the agreement.  If the Customer reasonably determines that the Services (including the Data or Reports) do not meet SenseCheck’s obligations under the agreement, the Customer shall so notify SenseCheck in writing within ten (10) days after receipt of the Services in question. The Customer’s failure to notify SenseCheck within the specified period of time herein, shall mean the Customer accepts the Services as is, and SenseCheck will be discharged of any liability for non-performance of the Services. If Customer so notifies SenseCheck within ten (10) days after receipt of the Services, then, unless SenseCheck disputes the Customer’s claim, SenseCheck will, at its option, either re-perform the Services in question or issue the Customer a credit for the amount the Customer paid to SenseCheck for the nonconforming Services. The Customer agrees that the credit for nonconforming Services shall be SenseCheck’s aggregate liability for every kind of liability arising under or in connection with the agreement including liability in contract, tort (including negligence), misrepresentation, restriction of otherwise in connection with the non-conforming Services.  Unless the Customer notifies SenseCheck that it intends to make a claim in respect of an event within the notice period given in this clause 11.3, SenseCheck shall have no liability for that event.

11.4           Nothing in the agreement excludes the liability of SenseCheck:

(a)       for death or personal injury caused by SenseCheck’s negligence; or

(b)       for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.

11.5           SenseCheck has given commitments as to the quality of the Services. In view of these commitments, the terms implied by sections 3, 4 and 5 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the agreement.

11.6           Subject to clause 11.4, SenseCheck shall not be liable whether in tort (including negligence), contract, misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise for any of the following howsoever arising under the agreement:

(a)       loss of profits or loss of earnings.

(b)       loss of sales or business.

(c)        loss of agreements or contracts.

(d)       loss of anticipated savings.

(e)       Increase in bad debt or failure to reduce bad debt.

(f)        loss of use or corruption of software, data or information.

(g)        loss of or damage to goodwill; and

(h)       indirect or consequential loss.

11.7           Subject to clause 11.3, clause 11.4 and clause 11.6, SenseCheck’s total aggregate liability in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise, arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of the agreement shall be limited to the total Fees paid during the 3 months immediately preceding the date on which the claim arose.  This cap on liability shall be reduced by any credits awarded in accordance with clause 11.3.

12.             Audit

12.1           The Customer agrees that, subject to the Customer being given reasonable prior written notice, it shall permit SenseCheck and its authorised independent auditors to have reasonable access during the Customer’s normal business hours to the Customer’s relevant premises, operations, recordsand systems for the sole purpose of ensuring that the Customer is complying with its obligations under the agreement.

12.2           In the event of SenseCheck exercising its rights under clause 12.1 SenseCheck shall at all times comply with the Customer’s reasonable safety and security rules and regulations in place from time to time.

13.             SUSPENSION and termination

13.1           The agreement shall, unless otherwise terminated as provided in this clause 12, commence on the date it is entered into and shall continue indefinitely unless either party gives to the other written notice to terminate in which case the agreement shall terminate with immediate effect.

13.3           Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, either party may terminate the agreement with immediate effect by giving written notice to the other party if:

(a)       the other party commits a material breach of any term of the agreement and (if such a breach is remediable) fails to remedy that breach within 14 days of that party being notified in writing to do so;

(b)       the other party takes any step or action in connection with its entering administration, provisional liquidation or any composition or arrangement with its creditors (other than in relation to a solvent restructuring), obtaining a moratorium, being wound up (whether voluntarily or by order of the court, unless for the purpose of a solvent restructuring), having a receiver appointed to any of its assets or ceasing to carry on business or, if the step or action is taken in another jurisdiction, in connection with any analogous procedure in the relevant jurisdiction;

(c)        the other party suspends, or threatens to suspend, or ceases or threatens to cease to carry on all or a substantial part of its business; or

(d)       the other party’s financial position deteriorates so far as to reasonably justify the opinion that its ability to give effect to the terms of the agreement is in jeopardy.

(a)       all licences granted under the agreement shall immediately terminate and the Customer shall immediately cease all use of the Services, Data, Reports and/or the Documentation;

Schedule – Data Processing Terms

1.1          Both parties will comply with all applicable requirements of the Data Protection Legislation. This Schedule is in addition to, and does not relieve, remove or replace, a party’s obligations or rights under the Data Protection Legislation. In this Schedule, Applicable Law means (for so long as and to the extent that they apply to SenseCheck) the law of the European Union, the law of any member state of the European Union and/or Domestic UK Law; and Domestic UK Lawmeans the UK Data Protection Legislation and any other law that applies in the UK.

1.2          The parties acknowledge that this Schedule shall only apply where the Customer is the controller and SenseCheck is the processor.

1.3          Without prejudice to the generality of clause 1.1, the Customer will ensure that it has all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of the personal data to SenseCheck and/or lawful collection of the personal data by SenseCheck on behalf of the Customer for the duration and purposes of this agreement.

1.4          Without prejudice to the generality of clause 1.1, SenseCheck shall, in relation to any personal data processed in connection with the performance by SenseCheck of its obligations under this agreement:

(a)       process that personal data only on the documented written instructions of the Customer unless SenseCheck is required by Applicable Laws to otherwise process that personal data. Where SenseCheck is relying on Applicable Laws as the basis for processing personal data, SenseCheck shall promptly notify the Customer of this before performing the processing required by the Applicable Laws unless those Applicable Laws prohibit SenseCheck from so notifying the Customer;

(b)       ensure that it has in place appropriate technical and organisational measures, reviewed and approved by the Customer, to protect against unauthorised 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 unauthorised or unlawful processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected, having regard to the state of technological development and the cost of implementing any measures (those measures may include, where appropriate, pseudonymising and encrypting personal data, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of its systems and services, ensuring that availability of and access to personal data can be restored in a timely manner after an incident, and regularly assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of the technical and organisational measures adopted by it);

(c)        ensure that all personnel who have access to and/or process personal data are obliged to keep the personal data confidential; and

(d)       not transfer any personal data outside of the European Economic Area unless the prior written consent of the Customer has been obtained and the following conditions are fulfilled:

(i)        the Customer or SenseCheck has provided appropriate safeguards in relation to the transfer;

(ii)       the data subject has enforceable rights and effective legal remedies;

(iii)      SenseCheck complies with its obligations under the Data Protection Legislation by providing an adequate level of protection to any personal data that is transferred; and

(iv)      SenseCheck complies with reasonable instructions notified to it in advance by the Customer with respect to the processing of the personal data;

(v)        assist the Customer, at the Customer’s cost, in responding to any request from a data subject and in ensuring compliance with its obligations under the Data Protection Legislation with respect to security, breach notifications, impact assessments and consultations with supervisory authorities or regulators;

(vi)      notify the Customer without undue delay on becoming aware of a personal data breach;

(vii)     at the written direction of the Customer, delete or return personal data and copies thereof to the Customer on termination of the agreement unless required by Applicable Law to store the personal data; and

(viii)    maintain complete and accurate records and information to demonstrate its compliance with Schedule and allow for audits by the Customer or the Customer’s designated auditor and immediately inform the Customer if, in the opinion of SenseCheck, an instruction infringes the Data Protection Legislation.

1.5          The Customer consents to SenseCheck appointing third-party processors of personal data under this agreement. SenseCheck confirms that it has entered or (as the case may be) will enter with the third-party processor into a written agreement substantially on that third party’s standard terms of business and SenseCheck confirms reflect and will continue to reflect the requirements of the Data Protection Legislation. As between the Customer and SenseCheck, SenseCheck shall remain fully liable for all acts or omissions of any third-party processor appointed by it pursuant to this paragraph 1.5.

1.6          SenseCheck may, at any time on not less than 30 days’ notice, revise this Schedule by replacing it with any applicable controller to processor standard clauses or similar terms forming part of an applicable certification scheme (which shall apply when replaced by attachment to the agreement).
