However, any terms and conditions in any quote, invoice, order form or other documentation which the Supplier states apply to any Deliverables, shall have no force or effect.

    3. Regardless of the date of acceptance of the Order, these Terms & Conditions shall, absent any signed agreement between SkyShowtime and the Supplier to the contrary, be effective from the commencement of provision of any Deliverables by the Supplier and, shall apply to all goods, materials, licences and/or services predating the Order.

  3. Supply of Deliverables

  4. Acceptance of Deliverables

    1. If the provision of Deliverables (or a part thereof) pursuant to the Agreement is incomplete or defective, SkyShowtime may accept or reject the Deliverables so provided and cancel the balance of the Agreement. Deliverables may be inspected, tested and subsequently accepted or rejected by SkyShowtime. SkyShowtime is not obliged to accept Deliverables without full written instructions for use.

If any, or any part of any, Deliverables (whether or not inspected, tested or accepted by SkyShowtime) do not comply with the requirements of the Agreement or are otherwise not of a satisfactory quality or fit for purpose, then SkyShowtime may : (a) require the Supplier to, and if so required, the Supplier shall, promptly (and in any event within 14 days) replace or re-perform the relevant Deliverables so that they accord with the Agreement and are of a satisfactory quality and fit for purpose; or (b) arrange to have those Deliverables supplied or performed by a third party, in which case the Supplier shall reimburse SkyShowtime for all reasonable additional costs and expenses thereby incurred; or (c) terminate the Agreement immediately by written notice to the Supplier and require the Supplier to, and if so required, the Supplier shall, promptly repay to SkyShowtime any monies which SkyShowtime has paid to the Supplier.

    2. The Supplier indemnifies the Indemnified Entities in full against any and

      all Losses awarded against or suffered or incurred or paid by the Indemnified Entities as a result of or in connection with: (a) any claim that any of the Deliverables (and/or any Indemnified Entity’s receipt and/or use of the same)

    4. The Supplier shall, at its own expense, conduct any litigation arising from a Relevant Claim and all negotiations in connection therewith. The Supplier shall obtain the prior written approval of SkyShowtime before entering into any settlement of a Relevant Claim.

    5. The Supplier shall forthwith notify SkyShowtime if any third party challenges or makes a claim or demand or brings an action against, or notifies the Supplier of an intention to challenge, make or bring a claim, demand or action against the Supplier in relation to the Supplier’s IPR.

    6. Without prejudice to clauses 4.2 to 4.5, in the event of a Relevant Claim or the notification of a claim against the Supplier under clause 4.5, the Supplier shall: (a) procure for SkyShowtime and the Service Beneficiaries (at no cost to SkyShowtime) the right to continue to use and enjoy the Deliverables; or (b) subject to SkyShowtime's prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), re-provide or modify the Deliverables in a manner which renders the Deliverables non-infringing while still being in compliance with the requirements of the Agreement.

  6. Confidentiality

    1. Subject to clause 6.2 below, and except where freely and legitimately available to the public prior to disclosure, the Supplier and SkyShowtime (each being a “Receiving Party” in relation to the Confidential Information of the other party) will not use or disclose to any third party any Confidential Information of the other party (the “Disclosing Party”) for any purpose other than as strictly necessary to provide or receive the Deliverables, without the express prior written consent of the Disclosing Party. All rights in the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party remain the rights of the Disclosing Party. The Receiving Party will keep the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party confidential and secure. The Receiving Party shall, on demand, either destroy (with certification by one of its officers) or return the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, provided that SkyShowtime shall not be required to return or destroy Confidential Information in the Deliverables unless otherwise agreed between the parties in writing.

    2. The Receiving Party may disclose the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to: (i) in the case of SkyShowtime, the SkyShowtime Group and Service Beneficiaries; and (ii) in the case of either party, such of its, directors, advisers, sub-contractors, agents, consultants, legal and financial advisors or

      employees, as may, in each such case, require access to the Confidential Information on a strict need-to-know basis, (“Permitted Disclosees”). The Receiving Party will ensure that its Permitted Disclosees: (i) are, in respect of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, bound by confidentiality and use obligations at least as stringent as those set out in this clause 6; and (ii) have been informed of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and the purpose for which it may be lawfully used. The Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information if, and only to the extent that, it is required to do so by a regulator or a relevant stock exchange or otherwise under Law, provided that, to the extent that it is permitted to do so, it will: notify the Disclosing Party as soon as practicable upon becoming aware of the obligation to disclose; and co-operate with the Disclosing Party in avoiding or limiting the disclosure and obtaining assurances as to confidentiality from the body to whom the Confidential Information is to be disclosed.

    8. Except as provided in clause 8.7, neither party is liable for any taxes which the other party is legally obliged to bear and which relate to any transactions contemplated under the Agreement.

The Supplier shall not be entitled to charge an administrative uplift over and above charges and/or expenses.

The Supplier may, by providing at least 30 days’ prior written notice to SkyShowtime, only terminate the Agreement if SkyShowtime has failed to pay any undisputed sum when due in accordance with the Agreement, and failed to remedy such non-payment within 60 days after the Supplier have informed SkyShowtime of such non-payment by written notice.

    2. Without prejudice to any of SkyShowtime’s other rights or remedies, SkyShowtime may, by written notice to the Supplier, immediately terminate the Agreement and any related Agreement/s without liability to the Supplier if: (a) the Supplier fails to supply any Deliverables on time; (b) the Supplier fails to remedy any other material breach within 5 days of receipt of written notice from SkyShowtime requiring the Supplier to do so; or (c) the Supplier is unable to pay its debts for the purposes of section 123 of the Insolvency Act 1986, the Supplier makes or proposes any voluntary arrangement or composition with its creditors, a bankruptcy or winding up petition is presented for the Supplier, the Supplier enters into compulsory or voluntary liquidation or has a receiver or other officer appointed over the whole or any part its the Supplier’s assets or undertaking, the Supplier has an administrator appointed to manage its affairs, business and property, or if the Supplier takes or suffers any similar action in consequence of debt or insolvency under the laws of the United Kingdom or any equivalent of the foregoing in any other jurisdiction.

Subject to the Supplier taking all reasonable steps to mitigate the Supplier’s losses, SkyShowtime will, on termination pursuant to this clause 9.3, reimburse the Supplier’s reasonable costs incurred in the performance of its obligations up to the date of termination in respect of which SkyShowtime has not yet made any payment, such costs in no circumstances to exceed the agreed charges for the Deliverables affected. If SkyShowtime terminates the Agreement in part, the Supplier will supply the remaining Deliverables in full and timeously, and the charges shall be reduced accordingly.

    4. Prior to termination or expiry of the Agreement, the Supplier shall consult with SkyShowtime about the steps to be taken to ensure an orderly cessation of the Deliverables and maintain SkyShowtime’s business continuity, including the delivery or migration of SkyShowtime data in a meaningful and useable format to SkyShowtime or a successor supplier of SkyShowtime.

    2.

To the fullest extent possible, the Supplier hereby assigns, in consideration of the sum of £1 (receipt of which is hereby acknowledged by the Supplier), such rights to SkyShowtime with full title guarantee and, where relevant, by way of a present assignment of future rights.

    3. In respect of any IPR that is expressed in an Agreement as not assigned to SkyShowtime, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any licence agreement entered into under an Order (unless it expressly varies this provision with specific reference to it), the Supplier hereby grants to the SkyShowtime Group a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, unlimited (including the right to transfer/sublicence in whole or in part) licence to use such Deliverables (and any ancillary rights necessary to enable the SkyShowtime Group and any Service Beneficiary to make full use of the Deliverables) for any purpose whatsoever.

      10.4. The Supplier hereby agrees promptly and without charge to procure the execution, completion and/or delivery of any formal consents or agreements (including waivers of moral rights) reasonably required by SkyShowtime to formalise or enforce the granting and/or assignment of rights set out herein

      or otherwise for the full enjoyment by the SkyShowtime Group and Service Beneficiaries of such rights.

  11. Title and Risk

    Title and risk in the Deliverables shall pass to SkyShowtime on delivery and acceptance in accordance with the Agreement (except where the Deliverables include installation, in which case risk passes on completion of installation and acceptance by SkyShowtime).

  12. Audit

    1. The Supplier shall give SkyShowtime and/or its agents reasonable, accompanied access, during working hours, to inspect and audit (“Audit”) the Supplier’s premises, systems, data, records, manuals, policies, processes, controls and other information relating to the Deliverables and the Suplier’s personnel (“Records & Controls”) in order to: (a) monitor compliance by the Supplier with its obligations under the Agreement and verify the accuracy, integrity, confidentiality and security of the Supplier’s Records & Controls to the extent relevant to the Supplier’s obligations under the Agreement; (b) verify the Supplier’s compliance with any applicable Law; (c) conduct any of SkyShowtime’s statutory audits; or (d) comply with any directions imposed on SkyShowtime by a regulator.

        1. SkyShowtime may conduct Audits any time up to 6 years after the end of the calendar year following expiry or termination of the Agreement.

        2. Except where otherwise stated in the Agreement, SkyShowtime will bear the cost of any Audit unless the Audit reveals that the Supplier’s not compliant, in which case the Supplier shall promptly pay all SkyShowtime’s costs in respect of the Audit. If SkyShowtime has overpaid the Supplier under the Agreement, then the Supplier shall promptly refund such overpayment to SkyShowtime, with interest. This clause 12.4 does not apply to Audits under the Data Processing Agreement at Annex 1 and does not affect SkyShowtime’s rights to separately claim damages for any breach of contract or SkyShowtime’s rights to claim under any indemnity in the Agreement.

  13. Supplier Personnel

    1. The Supplier shall procure that all of its employees, workers, subcontractors (approved by SkyShowtime in accordance with clause 14.2) and agents (“Supplier Personnel”) attending SkyShowtime’s or a third party’s site in connection with this Agreement comply with: (a) any reasonable directions or instructions given to them; and (b) any applicable security, health and safety or other notices and regulations.

    2. The Supplier shall: (a) be solely responsible for all matters arising out of any contract of employment with, or engagement of, Supplier Personnel, whether express or implied; and (b) not do (or omit to do) anything which could or could be expected to imply an employment relationship between any SkyShowtime Group member and such Supplier Personnel.

    3. The Supplier acknowledges that the draft Finance Bill 2020 (the “Bill”) and Chapter 8 of Part 2 of the Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003 (“ITEPA”) apply to the Agreement. The Supplier agrees that if it engages Supplier Personnel, either directly or indirectly, in the provision of the Deliverables, then SkyShowtime is the client and the Supplier is the fee payer as contemplated by and for the purposes of the Bill. The Supplier agrees that all Supplier Personnel are within scope for ITEPA. If the Supplier disputes this then it must notify SkyShowtime in writing to ContractNotices@SkyShowtime.com in a timely manner (and in any event at least two weeks prior to entering into an Agreement), providing a sufficiently detailed justification to enable SkyShowtime to make a status determination statement (“SDS”) as defined in ITEPA prior to entering an Agreement. Unless SkyShowtime provides an SDS confirming that the Supplier Personnel are outside scope of ITEPA, the Supplier warrants, represents and undertakes that it shall deduct income tax and employer and employee National Insurance contributions (“NIC”) from the Supplier Personnel’s pay and pay employer’s NIC. The Supplier shall permit SkyShowtime, on reasonable notice, to carry out an audit of the Supplier Personnel’s pay and the PAYE and NIC deductions. If the provisions of the enacted legislation differ from the provisions of the Bill, then SkyShowtime may amend the provisions of this clause 13.3 to accord with the changes.

    4. The Supplier indemnifies and holds harmless the Indemnified Entities against any Losses, including any employer or employee tax or national insurance liabilities, which any Indemnified Entities may suffer as a result of any claim or threatened claim that an employment or other relationship exists

      between any Indemnified Entities and the Supplier Personnel or arising out of the Supplier’s failure to comply with clauses 13.1, 13.2 and 13.3.

    5. Without limiting clauses 13.1 to 13.4, the Supplier indemnifies the Indemnified Entities against all Losses suffered by the Indemnified Entities, either directly, under an agreement with a successor supplier of the Deliverables to SkyShowtime, or otherwise, in connection with: (a) any breach of Regulation 13 (duty to inform and consult representatives) of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 as amended ("TUPE"); (b) any actual or alleged act or omission by the Supplier of any of its obligations or liabilities, or any other event occurring prior to the termination of the Agreement, in relation to Supplier Personnel; and/or (c) without limitation, any claim for redundancy payment, unfair dismissal compensation or notice monies and expenses or a protective award, in connection with or as a result of any claim or demand by any Supplier Personnel arising directly or indirectly from the termination or expiry (in whole or in part) of the Agreement or reduction in supply of any of the Deliverables or directly or indirectly from TUPE.

  14. General

    1. The Supplier shall maintain (and provide evidence if requested of) incident and crisis management, disaster recovery and business continuity plans to meet the necessary standards prescribed by any applicable regulator and good industry practice.

    2. The Supplier shall not assign, transfer or subcontract or purport to assign, transfer or subcontract to any other person any of the Supplier’s rights and/or obligations under the Agreement without SkyShowtime’s prior written consent. SkyShowtime’s approval of a sub-contractor will not relieve the Supplier of any liability under the Agreement and the Supplier is and shall remain principally responsible and liable for all acts and omissions of its subcontractors as if they were the Supplier’s acts and omissions. SkyShowtime may transfer all or any of its rights and/or obligations under the Agreement to any SkyShowtime Group member or any successor in title to all or part of its business.

    3. No waiver of any right (including a right in respect of a breach of the Agreement) shall be considered as a waiver of any subsequent right (including a right in any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision), and any such waiver shall be specific and in writing.

    4. Save as set out in clause 9.1, rights and remedies stated under the Agreement shall be cumulative and without prejudice to any other rights and remedies available to a party hereunder or under Law.

    5. No variation of the Agreement shall be valid unless in writing (excluding writing in the body of an email) and signed (excluding by way of a signature in the body of an email) by authorised representatives of the parties.

    6. If any provision of the Agreement is held by any competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, then the validity of the other provisions of the Agreement shall not be affected.

    7. Each Agreement shall form the entire agreement between SkyShowtime and the Supplier relating to the Deliverables and, without affecting any of SkyShowtime’s remedies (or the Supplier’s liability) for any misrepresentation by the Supplier, the Agreement replaces and supersedes any previous proposals, correspondence, understandings or other communications whether written or oral and prevails over any inconsistent terms or conditions contained or referred to in the Supplier’s quotation or correspondence or elsewhere or implied by trade custom, practice or course of dealing.

    8. The provisions of the Agreement which expressly or by implication are intended to survive termination will do so and will continue to be binding without limit in time.

      1. The SkyShowtime Group’s entire liability to the Supplier pursuant to any Agreement shall be the charges for the Deliverables to be provided by the Supplier as set out in the Agreement together with any interest due pursuant to clause 8. This clause does not in any way limit the SkyShowtime Group’s liability for death or personal injury caused by the SkyShowtime Group’s negligence or for fraud.

      2. Except in respect of: (a) a breach by the Supplier of clause 6 (Confidentiality) or clause 7 (Data Protection); (b) any intentionally harmful or fraudulent act or omission by the Supplier; (c) any of the Supplier’s indemnity obligations; (d) damage to, loss or destruction of real property or tangible personal property; (e) fraudulent misrepresentation or misstatement; (f) death or personal injury caused by the Supplier’s negligence or that of the Supplier Personnel; or (g) any liability that may not otherwise be limited or excluded by Law, for which, in each case, the Supplier’s liability will be unlimited, the Supplier’s total aggregate liability to SkyShowtime whether based on an action or claim in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty or otherwise arising out of, or in relation to, the Agreement, will be limited to the greater of twice the charges for the Deliverables to be provided by the Supplier

as set out in the Agreement and £500 000 (five hundred thousand Pounds Sterling). Save for the exceptions set out in the foregoing subclauses (a) to (g), which are unlimited, neither party shall not be liable to the other for any indirect or consequential Losses arising out of a breach of the Agreement.

    1. Should an Order include any assumptions, dependencies or obligations on SkyShowtime in respect of the provision by the Supplier of the Deliverables (each a “Dependency”) then, the Supplier will only be relieved from performing its directly affected obligations pursuant to the Agreement if, and to the extent that, the relevant non-performance directly results from a Dependency not being met and the Supplier has promptly notified SkyShowtime in writing: (i) that a Dependency has not been met; and (ii) of the Supplier’s intention to be relieved from performing the Supplier’s directly affected obligation/s.

The Parties agree that this Agreement is comprised of SkyShowtime’s main set of Instructions and the Supplier acknowledges that SkyShowtime may issue supplemental Instructions in relation to personal data the Supplier processes as SkyShowtime’s processor, including for the Supplier to:

      1. provide reasonable assistance to SkyShowtime, taking into account the nature of processing and the information available to the Supplier, so that SkyShowtime is able to:

        1. access all documents (only in so far as they relate to personal data processed by the Supplier as SkyShowtime’s processor) which the Supplier is required to maintain under Applicable Data Protection Law (if any) about such personal data processing;

        2. manage and respond to the exercise by any data subject of any of the rights afforded to data subjects under Applicable Data Protection Law;

        7. demonstrate its compliance with its obligations under Applicable Data Protection Law; and

      2. allow for and reasonably collaborate with SkyShowtime, an auditor mandated by SkyShowtime and/or the supervisory authority concerned carrying out desk-based audits, on-site audits and/or inspections of the Supplier, any of its sub-processors (to the extent permitted under the Supplier’s agreement with that sub-processor) and/or any of the facilities and IT systems used to process personal data on SkyShowtime’s behalf from time to time (including before such processing commences) to verify the Supplier’s compliance with its obligations under this DPA and Applicable Data Protection Law.

    3. The Supplier shall:

      1. subject to clause 4, keep the personal data it processes as SkyShowtime’s processor strictly confidential;

      2. ensure that its personnel are bound by appropriate, written and enforceable confidentiality obligations concerning the personal data and that they process such personal data only in accordance with SkyShowtime’s Instructions;

      3. subject to clause 4, not allow any third party access to the personal data or otherwise transfer the personal data to any third party; and

      4. subject to clauses 4 and 5, not transfer the personal data outside of the UK or EEA.

    4. For the duration the Supplier acts as SkyShowtime’s processor under this Agreement, the Supplier shall:

      1. implement and document appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk to the rights and freedoms of the data subjects presented by the Supplier processing personal data as SkyShowtime’s processor, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of such

        processing as well as the varying likelihood and severity of such risk, including measures to:

        1. guard against unauthorised or unlawful processing and personal data breaches;

        2. as appropriate, apply pseudonymisation and encryption to the personal data;

        3. ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of the Supplier’s and any sub-processor’s processing systems and services;

        4. restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident; and

        5. regularly test, assess and evaluate the effectiveness of such technical and organisational measures;

      2. without prejudice to the generality of clause 3.4.1, comply with the SkyShowtime Supplier Security Standard.

    5. For the duration the Supplier acts as SkyShowtime’s processor under the Agreement, the Supplier shall implement and document appropriate technical and organisational measures in relation to the personal data it processes as SkyShowtime’s processor to ensure that it is able to promptly:

      1. provide to SkyShowtime any such personal data in a commonly used electronic format, implement the restriction of processing of any such personal data, delete any such personal data and/or modify any such personal data if it receives an Instruction to do so by SkyShowtime; and

      2. identify any data subject requests to exercise any of the rights afforded to data subjects under Applicable Data Protection Law in relation to such personal data.

    6. The Supplier shall notify SkyShowtime:

      1. promptly if it receives any notice, request, query, consultation or complaint from the supervisory authority concerned or any data subject relating to the personal data the Supplier (or any sub-processor) processes as SkyShowtime’s data (sub)processor (including the requests and/or notices referred to in clause 3.2.1(c) to 3.2.1(d)) or that otherwise concern to SkyShowtime and/or the Supplier’s compliance with Applicable Data Protection Law;

      2. without undue delay, via email to DataIncidents@Skyshowtime.com, if it becomes aware of any personal data breach or breach of this DPA or SCCs (where applicable), providing, to the extent reasonably possible, the information SkyShowtime is required under Applicable Data Protection Law to provide to the supervisory authority concerned.

    7. Subject to the Supplier’s requirements under Law, if the Supplier becomes aware of any personal data breach involving personal data processed under this DPA and without prejudice to clauses 3.2.1(F) and 3.6.2, SkyShowtime is exclusively responsible for preparing and managing any notification of and/or correspondence with the supervisory authority concerned, any data subject and/or other third party relating to such personal data beach. Subject to the preceding sentence and any Instruction under clause 3.3.1(F), the Supplier shall take all reasonable steps to investigate, mitigate and resolve such personal data breach.

    8. Upon the Agreement’s or relevant Order’s (as applicable) termination or expiry (whichever is sooner) and subject to any Instruction to the contrary as well as the Supplier’s obligations under Law, return to SkyShowtime in a reasonably commonly used digital format the personal data it processes as SkyShowtime’s processor under the Agreement or the relevant Order (as applicable) and then promptly delete and cease processing all such personal data. The Supplier shall ensure that all of its sub-processors (if any) comply with this clause 3.8 and certify its and such sub-processors compliance to SkyShowtime in writing.


    1. Subject to clause 4.2 below, SkyShowtime hereby consents to the Supplier appointing sub-processors listed in the Order(s) to assist the Supplier with the processing of personal data under the Agreement. Where the Supplier wishes to add or replace a sub-processor, the Supplier shall notify SkyShowtime providing reasonable details and SkyShowtime shall have 14 days from receipt of notice to object to such change. Where SkyShowtime objects to a change and the Supplier is unable to resolve SkyShowtime’s objection, the Supplier will not proceed with the relevant change. If SkyShowtime fails to respond within 14 days, it shall be deemed to have consented to the change.

    2. The Supplier shall only allow a sub-processor to process the personal data the Supplier processes under this Agreement as SkyShowtime’s processor if:

      1. the Supplier has carried out adequate due diligence and is satisfied that the sub-processor is capable of providing the level of protection for personal data that is required under this DPA and, if applicable, the SCCs;

      2. such sub-processor’s processing of such personal data is: (i) carried out exclusively from a territory that is deemed to provide an adequate level of protection under Applicable Data Protection Law, (ii) subject to an appropriate data transfer mechanism permitted under Applicable Data Protection Law (which may include SCCs) or (iii) otherwise deemed under Applicable Data Protection Law to be subject to adequate levels of protection;

      3. it notifies SkyShowtime, providing details of the identity and location of the proposed sub-processor, a description of the intended processing to be carried out by the sub-processor and confirmation that adequate due diligence has been conducted as required under clause 4.1.1;

      4. the written contract under which such sub-processor processes such personal data is not less onerous than this DPA.

        For the avoidance of doubt, the Supplier shall remain fully liable to SkyShowtime for acts and omissions of the Supplier’s sub-processors.

    3. If the Supplier is required by Law to grant access to or otherwise transfer the personal data to a third party (whether nationally or internationally), it shall:

      1. if permitted by Law, give SkyShowtime as much prior notice as is reasonably possible (including reasonable information concerning such access or transfer and the relevant requirement(s) under Law);

      2. limit such access or transfer to the minimum reasonably possible; and

      3. provide SkyShowtime with all reasonable assistance should SkyShowtime choose to challenge such access or transfer.


    1. If the Supplier processes personal data at or from its facilities in a Third Country as SkyShowtime’s processor or this Agreement otherwise involves an international transfer of personal data between SkyShowtime and the Supplier for which Applicable Data Protection Law requires a party or the parties to adduce an adequate level of protection, the SCCs shall be incorporated by reference into this DPA. The parties agree that the Supplier is the Data Importer and relevant SkyShowtime Group entity is the Data Exporter. The Supplier represents and warrants that it has fully and accurately completed a data transfer impact assessment (provided to it by SkyShowtime) in relation to such processing. Where this clause 5.1 applies and unless otherwise agreed by the parties:

      1. the sections of the Order identified as covering the information required for Annexes 1 and 2 of the SCCs and Tables 1 and 3 of the UK Addendum shall apply to the SCC’s and UK Addendum, as applicable;

      2. for the purposes of Section 19 of the UK Addendum, neither party shall have the right to end the UK Addendum when a revised version is issued by the ICO;

      3. option 2 of Clause 9 (general authorisation of sub-processors) of module two of the SCCs shall apply in relation to the Data Controller's authorisation of the use of subprocessors and Data Processor shall notify Data Controller in writing of any intended changes to that list through the addition or replacement of sub-processors in accordance with this DPA; and

      4. in respect of EEA personal data:

        1. option 1 of Clause 17 of module two of the SCCs shall apply and the parties agree that the governing law shall be the law of the Republic of Ireland; and

        2. any dispute arising from the SCCs shall be resolved by the courts of the Republic of Ireland in accordance with Clause 18 of module two of the SCCs,

    2. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to prevail over any conflicting clause of the SCCs. Each party acknowledges that it has had the opportunity to review the SCCs.

    3. If the Supplier engages a sub-processor in a Third Country to process personal data and the processing is not otherwise deemed under Applicable Data Protection Law to be subject to adequate levels of protection and the Supplier is unable to rely on an alternative data transfer mechanism permitted under Applicable Data Protection Law, the Supplier will assist SkyShowtime to adduce an adequate level of protection for such personal data. The Supplier shall provide SkyShowtime with a copy of any SCCs entered into pursuant to this section promptly on request.

    4. If, for whatever reason, any transfer of personal data under the SCCs referred to in clauses 5.1 and 5.2 ceases to be lawful, SkyShowtime may, at its discretion:

      1. require the Supplier to cease transfers of personal data to, or access to such personal data from, the relevant jurisdictions, or

      2. require the Supplier to promptly cooperate with SkyShowtime to facilitate SkyShowtime’s use of an alternative lawful data transfer mechanism to enable the transfer of such personal data.

If SkyShowtime and the Supplier are unable to promptly enter into such an alternative data transfer mechanism, then SkyShowtime may (at its option) terminate the Agreement, or reduce its scope to exclude personal data, at no additional cost to SkyShowtime.
