The parties intend this DPA to be an extension of the Agreement that will outline certain requirements for HiHello’s processing of certain personal data provided or made available by Customer, or collected or otherwise obtained by HiHello, in the course of providing services to Customer.
The parties agree that, as between the parties, Customer is a data controller and that HiHello is a processor in relation to personal data that HiHello processes on behalf of Customer in the course of providing the services under the Services Agreement (the "Services"). The subject-matter of the data processing, the types of personal data processed, and the categories of data subjects will be defined by, and/or limited to that necessary to carry out the Services described in, the Services Agreement.

3.5. HiHello will take reasonable steps to ensure the reliability and competence of any HiHello personnel who have access to the personal data.

For the purposes of the descriptions in the standard contractual clauses and only as between Customer and HiHello, Customer agrees that Customer is a data controller and "data exporter" and HiHello is the data processor and "data importer" under the standard contractual clauses. Additionally, Appendixes 1 and 2 of this DPA will take the place of Appendixes 1 and 2 of the standard contractual clauses respectively.
3.9. HiHello will allow Customer and its respective auditors or authorized agents to conduct reasonable audits and inspections during the term of the Services Agreement, solely to allow Customer to verify that HiHello is processing personal data in accordance with its obligations under this DPA, the Services Agreement, and applicable Data Protection Legislation.

3.12. HiHello will notify Customer immediately if, in HiHello's reasonable opinion, an instruction for the processing of personal data given by Customer infringes applicable Data Protection Legislation.
HiHello adopts an Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) as a framework for continuous improvement of security.
