The Subscriber will act as the “Controller”, being the party who determines the purposes and means of the Processing of Personal Data. emily will act as the “Processor” being the service provider who Processes Personal Data on behalf of the Subscriber. Each party will comply with the provisions of the GDPR that apply to its role as Controller or Processor, respectively.
- Purpose and Duration of Processing. Each party will Process Personal Data only as necessary for the provision and use of the Services, and for as long as the Subscriber has a valid paid subscription to the Services.

The categories of individuals whose Personal Data may be processed are: employees, contractors and patients of the Subscriber.
- Obligations. emily will:
- not transfer Personal Data to a country outside the European Union, the EEA or the United Kingdom, except where such third country provides appropriate safeguards by way of an adequacy decision (such as Canada) or where the recipient of the Personal Data provides appropriate safeguards through adherence to an approved certification framework (such as the EU-US Privacy Shield), Standard Contractual Clauses or binding corporate rules, or other legal mechanisms are in place to safeguard the Personal Data being transferred;

If a sub-processor fails to fulfill its data protection obligations, emily will be liable for the performance of such obligations;

- upon request of the Subscriber, either delete or return Personal Data after completion of Services relating to the Processing, subject to any legal or regulatory obligations to maintain or store the Personal Data; and
- provide the Subscriber with all information necessary to demonstrate emily’s compliance with the GDPR, and contribute to audits or inspections to be conducted by or on behalf of the Subscriber no more than once in any calendar year, unless an additional audit is required by the GDPR or regulatory authority, or is reasonably necessary due to genuine concerns regarding emily’s compliance with this DPA. The Subscriber will provide reasonable advance notice of any audit and will abide by emily’s reasonable security requirements. emily may charge for any time expended for such audit or inspection at emily’s then-current hourly rates.
