This includes all activities that the Processor performs to fulfil the Agreement and that represent a data processing on behalf of the Controller. This also applies if the Agreement does not explicitly refer to this DPA.
    2. The duration of the processing corresponds to the term agreed in the Agreement, except as otherwise required by applicable law.
  2. Nature and purpose of the processing

    1. The nature of the processing includes Fasthosts providing an application and advertising attribution solution and other Services as described in the Agreement, which process Affiliate Personal Data upon the instruction of the Affiliate in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
    2. Purposes of processing are all purposes required to provide the Services to the Affiliate.
  3. Type of personal data and categories of data subjects

    1. The type of processed data is determined by the Affiliate, the Affiliate may submit Affiliate Personal Data to the Services, the extent of which is determined and controlled by the Affiliate in its sole discretion, and which may include, but is not limited to, the following types of Personal Data: identification and contact data; financial information; and/or certain information about Affiliate’s end users (such as IP address and advertising identifier).
    2. The categories of Data Subjects: Affiliate may submit Affiliate Personal Data to the Services, the extent of which is determined and controlled by the Affiliate in its sole discretion, and which may include, but is not limited to, Personal Data relating to the following categories of data subjects:
      (a) Employees, agents, advisors, representatives, consultants, partners of the Affiliate (who are natural persons); and/or
      (b) Affiliate’s end-users authorised by Affiliate to use the Services.
  4. Responsibility and processing on documented instructions

    1. The Affiliate is solely responsible for complying with the legal requirements of Data Protection Laws, in particular, the legality of the transfer of data to the Processor and the legality of data processing under this DPA. This also applies to the purposes and means of processing set out in this DPA.
    2. The instructions are initially determined by the Agreement and can then be changed by the Affiliate in writing or in an electronic format (text form) by individual instructions (individual instruction). Verbal instructions must be confirmed immediately in writing or in text form. Instructions that are not provided for in the Agreement are treated as an application for a change in performance. In the event of proposed changes, the Processor shall inform the Affiliate of the effects that this will have on the agreed Services, in particular, the possibility of providing services, deadlines, and remuneration. If the implementation of the instruction is not reasonable to the Processor, the Processor is entitled to terminate the processing. Unacceptability exists in particular if the Services are provided in an infrastructure that is used by other customers of the processor (‘’Shared Services’’), and a change in the processing for Affiliates is not possible or is unreasonable.
    3. The contractually agreed data processing takes place as a rule mainly in a Member State of the European Union or in another contracting state of the Agreement via the European Economic Area, unless the transfer of data to third countries becomes necessary in order to provide the Service. In the event that a transfer to a third country takes place, the Processor shall ensure that the requirements pursuant to Art. 44 ff. GDPR are fulfilled.
