We will only use your personal information as set out in Our Privacy Notice/Policy available from https://dentalprofessionalportal.com/privacy-policy.

21.1    Data Processing
21.1.1    In this Clause, “personal data”, “data subject”, “data controller”, “data processor”, and “personal data breach” shall have the meaning defined in the Data Protection Legislation.
21.1.2    The Parties hereby agree that they shall both comply with all applicable data protection requirements set out in the Data Protection Legislation. This Clause shall not relieve either Party of any obligations set out in the Data Protection Legislation and does not remove or replace any of those obligations.
21.1.3    For the Data Protection Legislation and this Clause, the Client is the “Data Controller” and the Service Provider is the “Data Processor”.
21.1.4    The Data Controller shall ensure that it has in place all necessary consents and notices required to enable the lawful transfer of personal data to the Data Processor for the purposes described in this Agreement.
21.1.5    The Data Processor shall, concerning any personal data processed by it about its performance of any of its obligations under this Agreement:
21.1.5.1      Process the personal data only on the written instructions of the Data Controller unless the Data Processor is otherwise required to process such personal data by law.

21.1.5.6       Notify the Data Controller without undue delay of a personal data breach;

If the Data Processor appoints a sub-contractor, the Data Processor shall:
21.1.6.1      Enter into a written agreement with the sub-contractor, which shall impose upon the sub-contractor the same obligations as are imposed upon the Data Processor by this Clause and which shall permit both the Data Processor and the Data Controller to enforce those obligations; and
