Exhibitor and Sponsor License
Last updated: 1 June 2023
This Data Processing Addendum ("DPA") forms part of the agreement (“Agreement”) between the RX entity and the exhibitor, sponsor or other party (each, a “Party”) specified in the Agreement in which this DPA is referenced.
1.1 “Data Protection Laws” means all applicable privacy and data protection laws, rules, regulations, decrees, orders and other government requirements.
1.2 The terms “controller”, “data subject,” “personal data” and “processing” will have the same meanings ascribed to them in the Data Protection Laws, and where the Data Protection Laws use equivalent or corresponding terms, such as “personal information” instead of “personal data,” they will be read herein as the same.
2.1 This DPA applies to the processing of personal data each Party receives from the other and, if applicable, its affiliates under the Agreement.
2.2 The subject matter of processing is the personal data provided in respect of the exhibition and related services under the Agreement. The duration of the processing is the duration of the provision of the services under the Agreement until disposal of the personal data in accordance with the Agreement. The nature and purpose of the processing is in connection with the provision of the services under the Agreement. The types of personal data processed are those processed under the Agreement. The categories of data subjects are those whose personal data is processed under the Agreement.
3. Roles and Restrictions
3.1 Each Party independently determines the purposes and means of its processing of personal data and, therefore, each Party is an independent controller of the personal data. The Parties do not and will not process the personal data as joint controllers.
3.2 Each Party will comply with its obligations under the Data Protection Laws, and each Party will be individually and separately responsible for its own compliance. Nothing in this DPA will modify any restrictions applicable to either Party’s rights to use or otherwise process the personal data under the Agreement.
4.1 Each Party will cooperate with and assist the other as reasonably required to enable the other Party to comply with its obligations under the Data Protection Laws, taking into account the nature of processing and the information available to the Party.
5. Cross-border Transfer
5.1 Each Party will ensure that, to the extent that any personal data is transferred by the Party to another country, such transfer will be subject to appropriate safeguards that provide an adequate level of protection in accordance with the Data Protection Laws.
6. Jurisdiction-Specific Terms
6.1 To the extent that either Party is processing any personal data originating from or otherwise subject to the Data Protection Laws of any of the jurisdictions listed below, the terms specified therein with respect to the applicable jurisdiction(s) apply in addition to the foregoing terms.
