For the purposes of the Clauses:
- ‘personal data’, ‘special categories of data’, ‘process/processing’, ‘controller’, ‘processor’, ‘data subject’ and ‘supervisory authority’ shall have the same meaning as in Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data;
- ‘the data exporter’ means the controller who transfers the personal data;
- ‘the data importer’ means the processor who agrees to receive from the data exporter personal data intended for processing on his behalf after the transfer in accordance with his instructions and the terms of the Clauses and who is not subject to a third country’s system ensuring adequate protection within the meaning of Article 25(1) of Directive 95/46/EC;
- ‘the subprocessor’ means any processor engaged by the data importer or by any other subprocessor of the data importer who agrees to receive from the data importer or from any other subprocessor of the data importer personal data exclusively intended for processing activities to be carried out on behalf of the data exporter after the transfer in accordance with his instructions, the terms of the Clauses and the terms of the written subcontract;
- ‘the applicable data protection law’ means the legislation protecting the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals and, in particular, their right to privacy with respect to the processing of personal data applicable to a data controller in the Member State in which the data exporter is established;
- ‘technical and organizational security measures’ means those measures aimed at protecting personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, in particular where the processing involves the transmission of data over a network, and against all other unlawful forms of processing.
Details of the transfer
The details of the transfer and in particular the special categories of personal data where applicable are specified in Appendix 1 which forms an integral part of the Clauses.
Third-party beneficiary clause
- The data subject can enforce against the data exporter this Clause, Clause 4(b) to (i), Clause 5(a) to (e), and (g) to (j), Clause 6(1) and (2), Clause 7, Clause 8(2), and Clauses 9 to 12 as third-party beneficiary.
- The data subject can enforce against the data importer this Clause, Clause 5(a) to (e) and (g), Clause 6, Clause 7, Clause 8(2), and Clauses 9 to 12, in cases where the data exporter has factually disappeared or has ceased to exist in law unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by contract or by operation of law, as a result of which it takes on the rights and obligations of the data exporter, in which case the data subject can enforce them against such entity.
- The data subject can enforce against the subprocessor this Clause, Clause 5(a) to (e) and (g), Clause 6, Clause 7, Clause 8(2), and Clauses 9 to 12, in cases where both the data exporter and the data importer have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by contract or by operation of law as a result of which it takes on the rights and obligations of the data exporter, in which case the data subject can enforce them against such entity. Such third-party liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.
- The parties do not object to a data subject being represented by an association or another body if the data subject so expressly wishes and if permitted by national law.
Obligations of the data exporter

The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established, namely_______Germany______
Variation of the contract
The parties undertake not to vary or modify the Clauses. This does not preclude the parties from adding clauses on business-related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Clause.
- The data importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the data exporter under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the data exporter. Where the data importer subcontracts its obligations under the Clauses, with the consent of the data exporter, it shall do so only by way of a written agreement with the subprocessor which imposes the same obligations on the sub-processor as are imposed on the data importer under the Clauses.

APPENDIX 2 TO THE STANDARD CONTRACTUAL CLAUSES
This Appendix forms part of the Clauses and must be completed and signed by the parties.
Description of the technical and organizational security measures implemented by the data importer in accordance with Clauses 4(d) and 5(c) (or document/legislation attached):
CMS2CMS currently observes the security practices described in this Appendix 2.
a) Access Control
i) Preventing Unauthorized Product Access
Outsourced processing: CMS2CMS hosts its Service with outsourced, Germany-based data center providers. Additionally, CMS2CMS maintains contractual relationships with vendors in order to provide the Service. CMS2CMS relies on contractual agreements, privacy policies, and vendor compliance programs in order to assure the protection of data processed or stored by these vendors. Physical and environmental security: CMS2CMS hosts its product infrastructure with outsourced data center providers. Authentication: CMS2CMS implemented a uniform password policy. Users who interact with the product via the user interface must authenticate before accessing non-public customer data. Authorization: User data is stored in multi-tenant storage systems accessible to Users via only application user interfaces and application programming interfaces. Customers are not allowed direct access to the underlying application infrastructure. The authorization model in CMS2CMS service is designed to ensure that only the appropriately assigned individuals can access relevant features, views, and customization options.
ii) Preventing Unauthorized Product Use
CMS2CMS implements industry standard access controls and detection capabilities for the internal networks that support its products. Access controls: Network access control mechanisms are designed to prevent network traffic using unauthorized protocols from reaching the product infrastructure. The technical measures include Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) implementations and security group assignment, along with traditional enterprise firewall and Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) assignment. Intrusion detection and prevention: CMS2CMS implemented a Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution to protect all hosted sites as well as CMS2CMS Service access. The WAF is designed to identify and prevent attacks against publicly available network services.
iii) Limitations of Privilege & Authorization Requirements
Product access: A subset of CMS2CMS’s employees have access to the product and to user data via controlled interfaces. The intent of providing access to a subset of employees is to provide effective customer support, to troubleshoot potential problems. Access is enabled through “just in time” requests for access; all such requests are logged. Employees are granted access by role, and reviews of high risk privilege grants are initiated daily.
Background checks: All employees are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with company guidelines, non-disclosure requirements, and ethical standards.
b) Transmission Control
In-transit: CMS2CMS makes HTTPS encryption (also referred to as SSL or TLS) available on every one of its login interfaces and for free on every customer site hosted on the CMS2CMS products. CMS2CMS’s HTTPS implementation uses industry standard algorithms and certificates.
At-rest: CMS2CMS stores user passwords following policies that follow at least industry standard practices for security, User account passwords are hashed. Our own staff can’t even view them. If you lose your password, it can’t be retrieved—it must be reset.
c) Input Control
Detection: CMS2CMS designed its infrastructure to log extensive information about the system behaviour, traffic received, system authentication, and other application requests. Internal systems aggregated log data and alert appropriate employees of malicious, unintended, or anomalous activities. CMS2CMS personnel, including security, operations, and support personnel, are responsive to known incidents.
Response and tracking: CMS2CMS maintains a record of known security incidents that includes description, dates and times of relevant activities, and incident disposition. Suspected and confirmed security incidents are investigated by security, operations, or support personnel; and appropriate resolution steps are identified and documented. For any confirmed incidents, CMS2CMS will take appropriate steps to minimize Customer damage or unauthorized disclosure.
d) Job Control
The CMS2CMS provides a solution for Customers to conduct CMS and forum migration. Customers control the data types collected by and stored within their portals. CMS2CMS never sells personal data to any third party.
Terminating Customers: Core Customer Data is purged upon a customer’s written request, or in 30 days after a customer terminates all agreements for data migration service with CMS2CMS. “Core Customer Data” includes (i) the name, email address, phone number, data that was used for migration and information submitted by the customer.
e) Separation in Processing
CMS2CMS’s collection of personal data from its Customers is to provide and improve our Product. CMS2CMS does not use that data for other purposes that would require separate processing.
