27.2 LEGOLAND requires that all its suppliers be, and remain, certified under the PCI DSS if required to be so. By entering into individual agreements of which these Conditions part, the Supplier acknowledges and confirms that it understands its PCI DSS responsibilities, is compliant with the current version of the PCI DSS and will use its best endeavours to remain compliant throughout the term of individual agreements of which these Conditions part. Compliance with this Article 27 of these Conditions is material to individual agreements of which these Conditions part.

27.3 The Supplier warrants and represents that it (and its agents, sub-contractors, connected or associated persons or any person with whom it contracts in connection with the Supply of any Goods and Services) is not involved in, will not become involved in and will ensure that each of its staff, agents, sub-contractors, consultants, connected or associated persons will not engage in or in any way support or facilitate any act, omission or other behaviour which could be considered to constitute payment card fraud, payment card data misuse, identity theft or any other criminal offence or legislation in any jurisdiction relating to payment card fraud or identity theft.

27.4 The Supplier hereby acknowledges and accepts that LEGOLAND has a continuing obligation under the PCI DSS to periodically demonstrate its compliance with the PCI DSS, which will require an assessment of all the system components used to process, store or transmit relevant data and any other component that resides on the same network segment, some of which are the responsibility of the Supplier under these Conditions. Accordingly, it is further agreed:

(a) that the Supplier will create and maintain detailed, complete and accurate documentation describing the systems, processes, network segments, security controls and dataflow used to receive, transmit, store and secure the relevant data, in accordance with the PCI DSS; and

For the avoidance of doubt, each party shall bear its own costs in relation to compliance with individual agreements of which these Conditions part.

27.5 In the event that there is any reasonable risk that the above representations have been, are, or may become, untrue at any time, the Supplier will promptly notify LEGOLAND thereof and take such steps as LEGOLAND may reasonably require in order to rectify or deal with the situation.

(a) comply at all times with the Data Protection Laws;

(b) process the Personal Data solely on the documented instructions of LEGOLAND, including with regard to transfers of Personal Data to a third country outside the European Union or an international organisation (unless required by European Union or Member State law to which the Supplier is subject, in which case the Supplier shall inform LEGOLAND of that legal requirement before such Processing, unless that law prohibits such information on important grounds of public interest);

(c) ensure that persons authorised to process the Personal Data have committed themselves to contractual obligations of confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality and have undergone sufficient training in relation to data protection. Such confidentiality undertakings and obligations must be in written form and capable of being audited by LEGOLAND;

(h) assist LEGOLAND, at its own cost, with the obligations pursuant to Articles 32 to 36 of the GDPR taking into account the nature of the Processing and information available to the Supplier;

(i) cease Processing the Personal Data within 30 days following the termination or expiry of individual agreements of which these Conditions part, or earlier at the written request of LEGOLAND at any time and at LEGOLAND’s option, either return, or delete (such that the Personal Data is irretrievable) all copies, including any back-ups, of the Personal Data Processed by the Supplier unless (and solely to the extent and for such period as) European Union or Member State law requires storage of the Personal Data upon which the Supplier shall become the Data Controller for that Personal Data;

(j) assist LEGOLAND within such reasonable timescale as may be specified by LEGOLAND with the conduct of data protection impact assessments or with any prior consultations requested or required by any Supervisory Authority in relation to Personal Data Processe under individual agreements of which these Conditions part; and

(k) in addition to any audit rights granted pursuant to these Conditions, make available to LEGOLAND on request all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with individual agreements of which these Conditions part and with Article 28 of the GDPR and shall allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, by LEGOLAND or an auditor mandated by LEGOLAND. In particular, the Supplier shall notify LEGOLAND if in its reasonable opinion, LEGOLAND has given an instruction which infringes the GDPR or any other data protection provisions.

28.3 The Supplier shall not transfer or process Personal Data outside the EU, either through direct transfer or remotely (e.g. via outsourcing, as part of business continuity arrangements, cloud arrangements, offshore models etc.) without the prior written consent of LEGOLAND which consent shall be conditional on the Supplier complying with Articles 45 to 49 (inclusive) of the GDPR and with any instructions issued by LEGOLAND. Where required by LEGOLAND, Supplier shall procure that the relevant data importer enters into an appropriate data transfer agreement directly with LEGOLAND.

28.4 For the purpose of the detail required in Article 28(3) of the GDPR, so far as the Supplier processes Personal Data on behalf of LEGOLAND as a Processor, the subject matter and the purpose of Processing under individual agreements of which these Conditions part is the provision of the Goods and Services as set out in these Conditions and such Processing may take place throughout the period during which such Goods or Services are provided. The nature of the Processing shall be those Processing operations that are necessary to enable the Supplier to provide the Goods or Services, which may be more particularly described in individual agreements of which these Conditions part.
