2.2 CCPA Roles. For the purposes of the CCPA/CPRA (where applicable), Supplier shall Process Personal Data as a Service Provider acting upon instructions of Seagate as a Business.
2.3 Nondisclosure of Seagate Personal Information. Supplier shall not disclose Seagate Personal Information in any manner for any purpose to any third party without obtaining prior written authorization from Seagate, other than disclosures to Sub-processors in accordance with Section 2.5 below. Without limiting the foregoing, in no event may Supplier sell or otherwise disclose Seagate Personal Information to any third party for the commercial benefit of Supplier or any third party.
2.4 Limitations on Processing. Supplier shall only Process Seagate Personal Information for the purposes of providing the Services to Seagate under the Agreement(s) and in accordance with Seagate's documented lawful instructions ("Permitted Purposes"). For these purposes, Seagate instructs Supplier to Process Seagate Personal Information for the purposes described in Annex I (Description of Transfer). Supplier shall not Process or permit the Processing of Seagate Personal Information except as necessary to provide services to Seagate in accordance with any Agreement between the parties and/or their Affiliates or other written instructions of Seagate.
2.5 Processing Requirements. Supplier shall at all times: (a) Process the Personal Data solely for the Permitted Purposes; and (b) not Process Personal Data for its own purposes or those of any third party. Supplier shall not: (i) Sell or Share Personal Data; (ii) retain, use or disclose Personal Data for any purposes other than for the Permitted Purpose(s), including retaining, using or disclosing Personal Data for a commercial purpose other than performing the Services under the Agreement(s); or (iii) retain, use or disclose Personal Data outside the direct business relationship between Seagate and Supplier. Supplier certifies that it understands and will comply with the requirements and restrictions set out in this Section 2.5 and will further comply with the requirements applicable to Service Providers under the CCPA/CPRA. Further, the Parties acknowledge and agree that the exchange of Personal Data between the Parties does not constitute a sale (as such term is defined under Data Protection Laws), nor form part of any monetary or other valuable consideration exchanged between the Parties with respect to the Agreement(s) or this DPA. In all cases, Supplier will comply with any applicable restrictions under the CPRA or other Data Protection Laws on combining Personal Data received from Seagate with Personal Data that Supplier receives from, or on behalf of, another person or persons, or that Supplier Collects from any interaction between it and a Consumer.
2.6 Information Security Program. Supplier will implement, maintain, monitor and, where necessary, update a comprehensive written information security program that contains appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect Seagate Personal Information against anticipated threats or hazards to its security, confidentiality or integrity (such as unauthorized access, collection, use, copying, modification, disposal or disclosure, unauthorized, unlawful, or accidental loss, destruction, acquisition, or damage or any other unauthorized form of Processing) (“Information Security Program”). The Information Security Program will include the requirements and measures listed in the Security Standards attached as Annex II.
2.7 Restrictions on Sub-processors. Supplier may disclose Seagate Personal Information to Sub-processors as necessary to perform its services for Seagate, subject to the conditions set forth in this Section 2.7. Supplier shall maintain a list of the Sub-processors to which it discloses Seagate Personal Information and will provide this list to Seagate upon Seagate’s request. As of the effective date of the Agreement(s), if applicable, a current list of Supplier’s Sub-processor(s) is included either in the Agreement(s) or in any other document provided by the Supplier to Seagate and signed by both parties, setting out the list of Sub-processor(s). Supplier shall notify Seagate at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 30 business days before adding any Sub-processor to the list. If Seagate does not object to the proposed Sub-processor within 30 business days of receipt of notice, the Sub-processor is deemed to have been approved. If Seagate objects to any Sub-processor having access to Seagate Personal Information, then Supplier shall not disclose Seagate Personal Information to the Sub-processor. If at any time either party finds a Sub-processor is not providing sufficient guarantees of security appropriate to the risk associated with the Seagate Personal Information being Processed, Seagate may in its sole discretion, remove the Sub-processor from the list. In the event a Sub-Processor is objected to or removed by Seagate, Supplier will be provided a reasonable amount of time to replace the Sub-processor. If Supplier cannot provide the Services without disclosing Seagate Personal Information to the objected to Sub-processor, then Seagate may terminate any applicable Agreement(s) between the parties and/or their Affiliates without cost or liability owed to Supplier.
2.8 Sub-processor Compliance and Breach. Supplier’s use of Sub-processors does not reduce Supplier’s obligation to comply with this DPA or applicable Data Protection Laws. Supplier will be liable to Seagate for performance of the services, Data Privacy Breaches and breaches of this DPA and applicable Data Protection Laws by its Sub-processors to the same extent as if Supplier breached.
2.9 Obligations of Supplier Personnel and Sub-processors. Supplier shall ensure that any person or Sub-processor who has access to Seagate Personal Information is bound by written privacy and data protection terms at least as restrictive as those in this DPA.

2.10 Limited Access. Supplier shall limit access to Seagate Personal Information to Supplier Personnel or Sub-processors who require access for Supplier to perform its obligations under any Agreement(s) between the parties and/or their Affiliates or Seagate’s written instruction, who have (a) been trained on data protection and security requirements, and (b) agreed to comply with data confidentiality requirements at least as restrictive as those required by Seagate during and after their Processing for Seagate.
2.11 Notice of Requests or Complaints. Unless prohibited by law, Supplier shall notify Seagate at email@example.com within 2 business days after receiving any request or complaint relating to the Processing of Seagate Personal Information, including:

ii. complaints or allegations that the Processing infringes on a Data Subject’s rights.
2.12 Supplier Responses. Supplier shall not respond to any request or complaint under Section 2.11 unless expressly authorized to do so by Seagate.

2.13 Requests for Disclosure. Unless prohibited by law, Supplier shall immediately notify Seagate if Supplier receives any document requesting or purporting to compel the disclosure of Seagate Personal Information (such as oral questions, interrogatories, requests for information or documents in legal proceedings, subpoenas, civil investigative demands, or other similar requests or processes; collectively, “Disclosure Requests”). If a Disclosure Request is not binding, Supplier will not respond. If a Disclosure Request is binding, Supplier shall, unless prohibited by applicable law, notify Seagate at least 48 hours before responding so that Seagate may exercise such rights as it may have to prevent or limit the disclosure. Supplier shall exercise reasonable efforts to prevent and limit any disclosure and to preserve the confidentiality of Seagate Personal Information. Supplier shall cooperate with Seagate with respect to any action taken in response to Disclosure Request, including cooperating to obtain an appropriate protective order or other assurance to protect the confidentiality of the Seagate Personal Information.

Seagate may suspend Supplier’s or Sub-processors’ Processing of Seagate Personal Information to prevent potential violations of or noncompliance with applicable law, this DPA, or any applicable Agreement(s) between the parties and/or their Affiliates related to privacy or data protection. Supplier shall cooperate with Seagate to adjust the Processing to remedy any potential violation or noncompliance. If adjustment is not possible, Seagate may terminate any applicable Agreement(s) between the parties and/or their Affiliates, without cost or liability owed to Supplier.
