Seagate will provide reasonable assistance to Company in supporting its compliance with such requirements, and Seagate, in its entire discretion, may execute the necessary agreement(s) that extend to applicable Company Personal Information covered under such provisions, without giving less effect to the provisions of this DPA. Company may notify Seagate about such jurisdiction specific requests at the notice address for the Seagate contracting entity identified in the Agreement.

2.5 Processing Instructions. The parties agree that the Agreement (including this DPA) sets out the Company's complete and final instructions to Seagate in relation to the processing of Company Personal Information. If Seagate is required by law to process the Company Personal Information for any other purpose, Seagate will inform Company of such requirement prior to the processing, unless and to the extent prohibited by law from doing so. Any changes to the Company's instructions are subject to approval by the Parties (including additional costs for complying with new instructions).

Company acknowledges that the Information Security Program is subject to technical progress and development and that Seagate may update or modify such program from time to time, provided that such updates and modifications do not result in the degradation of the overall security of the Services purchased by the Company.
2.8 Restrictions on Sub-processors. Seagate may disclose Company Personal Information to Sub-processors as necessary to perform its Services for Company, subject to the conditions set forth in this Section 2.8.

2.10 Obligations of Seagate Personnel and Sub-processors. Seagate shall ensure that any persons authorized to Process Company Personal Information have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
