Taking into account the nature of the Processing, CCG shall assist Customer by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfilment of Customer’s obligation to respond to a Data Subject Request under Data Protection Laws. In addition, to the extent Customer, in its use of the Services, does not have the ability to address a Data Subject Request, CCG shall upon Customer’s request provide commercially reasonable efforts to assist Customer in responding to such Data Subject Request, to the extent CCG is legally permitted to do so and the response to such Data Subject Request is required under Data Protection Laws.

6.1 Controls for the Protection of Customer Data. CCG shall maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures designed to protect the security (including protection against unauthorized or unlawful Processing and against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, Customer Personal Data), confidentiality and integrity of Customer Personal Data, as set forth in the WPP Information Security Policy. CCG regularly monitors compliance with these measures.
6.2.1 CCG shall reasonably cooperate with Customer, in relation to any audit of CCG necessary to enable Customer to comply with its obligations under applicable Data Protection Laws and shall seek the equivalent cooperation from relevant Subprocessors. Any such audit shall be subject to the confidentiality obligations set forth in the Agreement.

Customer accepts that certain sensitive information in relation to IT and security will be redacted before being audited and may only be audited at the CCG’s premises. At Customer’s option, this audit may cover documents only or may include an onsite audit, subject to Customer notifying CCG of the identity of any onsite Independent Auditors and giving confirmation that any Independent Auditors have entered into appropriate confidentiality agreements, as approved by the CCG (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Customer shall use reasonable endeavours to minimise any disruption caused to the CCG’s business activities as a result of such audit. No audit shall last more than five (5) business days each time unless a longer period is required to fulfil any request or comply with any requirement of any regulator. Audits shall take place no more than once in any calendar year unless and to the extent that Customer (acting reasonably and in good faith) have reasonable grounds to suspect any material breach of this DPA by CCG. Costs of the audit, including appointment of the Independent Auditor, will be borne by Customer.
6.2.4 CCG shall be entitled to a reasonable time to review and retain any audit report, prepared by Independent Auditor and to consult the Independent Auditor on the content, prior to the report being submitted to Customer. For avoidance of doubt, all confidential information of CCG obtained by Customer or an Independent Auditor pursuant to any audit shall be maintained in confidence by Customer and its Independent Auditor and may not be disclosed to any third party, including, without limitation, any other agents or representatives of Customer except to the extent necessary to assert or enforce any of the Customer’s rights under this DPA or is required to be disclosed by Data Protection Law, by any Supervisory Authority or by a court or other authority of competent jurisdiction provided that, to the extent it is legally permitted to do so, it gives CCG as much notice of this disclosure as possible and, where notice of disclosure is not prohibited and is given in accordance with this section, it takes into account the reasonable requests of CCG in relation to the content of this disclosure.
7. Customer Data Incident Management and Notification
CCG maintains security incident management policies and procedures and shall notify Customer without undue delay and in line with the timelines required by applicable Data Protection Laws after becoming aware of the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to Customer Personal Data, transmitted, stored or otherwise Processed by CCG or its Sub-processors which results in any actual loss or misuse of Customer Personal Data (a “Customer Data Incident”). CCG shall make reasonable efforts to identify the cause of such Customer Data Incident and take those steps as CCG deems necessary and reasonable in order to remediate the cause of such a Customer Data Incident to the extent the remediation is within CCG’s reasonable control. CCG shall have no liability for costs arising from a Customer Data Incident unless caused solely by a breach of CCG’s security obligations under section 6 of this DPA. In the event of a Customer Data Incident, Customer shall be responsible for notifying Data Subjects and/or Supervisory Authorities. Before any such notification is made, Customer shall consult with and provide CCG an opportunity to comment on any notification made in connection with a Customer Data Incident.

Each party’s and all of its Affiliates’ liability, taken together in the aggregate, arising out of or related to a breach of its obligations under this DPA (including any additional agreement entered into pursuant to this DPA), whether in contract, tort or under any other theory of liability, is subject to the ‘Limitation of Liability’ section of the Agreement, and any reference in such section to the liability of a party means the aggregate liability of that party and all of its Affiliates under the Agreement.
