This DPA and the Agreement are your complete and final instructions to DPD for the Processing of Customer Data. You and DPD must agree on any additional or alternate instructions. DPD will inform you if, in DPD’s opinion, your instructions violate Data Protection Laws and Regulations. DPD will process Customer Data: (1) in accordance with the Agreement (including all documents incorporated in the Agreement), and (2) to comply with other reasonable instructions you provide to DPD (including by email) where your instructions are consistent with the Agreement. DPD will not otherwise disclose Customer Data to third parties unless required to do so by applicable law. DPD will not Process Customer Data for any other purpose unless you instruct DPD.

Rights of data subjects
