2. Role and Scope of Processing
a. Scope. Subject to Section 2(b), this DPA applies to the extent that Couchbase processes as a processor or service provider (as applicable) any Customer Data protected by Applicable Data Protection Laws.

b. Role of the Parties. The parties acknowledge and agree that Customer is the relevant business, controller or processor (as applicable) of Customer Data, and Couchbase is a service provider, processor or subprocessor (as applicable) on behalf of Customer, as further described in Annex A of this DPA. For the avoidance of doubt, the parties acknowledge that Couchbase may be the relevant business or controller with respect to other Personal Data, such as Personal Data included in any technical usage data Couchbase collects in connection with the Cloud Service. Each Party will comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to it and binding on it in the performance of this DPA, including any Applicable Data Protection Laws.

c. Couchbase processing of personal data. Couchbase agrees that it shall process Customer Data only for the purposes described in this DPA and in accordance with Customer’s documented lawful instructions. The parties agree that the Agreement (including this DPA) sets out the Customer’s complete and final instructions to Couchbase in relation to the processing of Customer Data and processing outside the scope of these instructions (if any) shall require prior written agreement between Customer and Couchbase. Without prejudice to Section 2(d) (Customer responsibilities), Couchbase shall notify Customer in writing, unless prohibited from doing so under Applicable Data Protection Laws, and may suspend processing of Customer Data, if it becomes aware or believes that any data processing instructions from Customer violates Applicable Data Protection Laws.

d. Customer responsibilities. Customer is responsible for the lawfulness of Customer Data processing under or in connection with the Agreement. Customer represents and warrants that (i) it has provided, and will continue to provide, all notices and obtained, and will continue to obtain, all consents, permissions and rights necessary under Applicable Data Protection Laws for Couchbase to lawfully process Customer Data for the purposes contemplated by the Agreement (including this DPA); (ii) it has complied with all Applicable Data Protection Laws as a controller and/or business with respect to Customer Data for the collection and provision to Couchbase and its Sub-processors of such Customer Data; and (iii) it shall ensure its processing instructions comply with applicable laws (including Applicable Data Protection Laws) and that the processing of Customer Data by Couchbase in accordance with Customer’s instructions will not cause Couchbase to be in breach of Applicable Data Protection Laws.

e. Aggregate data. For the avoidance of doubt, Customer acknowledges that Couchbase and its Affiliates shall have a right to collect and create anonymized, aggregate, and/or de-identified information (as defined by Applicable Data Protection Laws) for its own legitimate business purposes.

3. Subprocessing
a. Authorized Sub-processors. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Couchbase may engage Sub-processors to process Customer Data on Customer’s behalf. The Sub-processors currently engaged by Couchbase and authorized by Customer are listed on the Couchbase website (currently posted at https://info.couchbase.com/cloud-subprocessors.html). At least fifteen (15) days prior to any addition of a new sub-processor, Couchbase will update the applicable website and provide Customer notice of that update via the mechanism provided at such Couchbase website, except that if Couchbase reasonably believes engaging a new Sub-processor on an expedited basis is necessary to protect the confidentiality, integrity or availability of the Customer Data or avoid material disruption to the Cloud Service, Couchbase will instead give such notice as soon as reasonably practicable.

b. Sub-processor Obligations. To the extent required under Applicable Data Protection Law, Couchbase will: (i) enter into a written agreement with each Sub-processor imposing data protection terms no less protective of Customer Data as Couchbase’s obligations under this DPA to the extent applicable to the services provided by each Sub-processor; and (ii) remain responsible for its compliance with the obligations of this DPA and for any acts or omissions of the Sub-processor that cause Couchbase to breach any of its obligations under this DPA.

c. Objections to Sub-processors. Customer may object in writing to Couchbase’s appointment of a new Sub-processor on reasonable grounds relating to data protection by notifying Couchbase promptly in writing within ten (10) calendar days of receipt of notice from Couchbase in accordance with Section 3(a) above. Such notice shall explain the reasonable grounds for the objection and the parties shall discuss such concerns in good faith with a view to achieving commercially reasonable resolution. If no such resolution can be reached, Couchbase will, at its sole discretion, either not appoint such Sub-processor, or permit Customer to suspend or terminate the affected portion of the Cloud Service in accordance with the termination provisions in the Agreement. Couchbase will refund the Customer any prepaid unused fees for such affected portion of the Cloud Service following the effective date of termination. Unless an objection is made as set forth in this Section 3(c), Customer consents to Couchbase’s use of Sub-processors as described in this DPA.

4. Security and Audits
a. Security Measures.  Couchbase shall implement and maintain appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect Customer Data in its control from Security Incidents and to preserve the security and confidentiality of the Customer Data, taking into account the state of the art and industry best practices, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing (“Security Measures”). Such Security Measures will include, at a minimum, those measures described in Annex B of this DPA. Couchbase shall ensure that any person who is authorized by Couchbase to process Customer Data under this DPA shall be under an appropriate obligation of confidentiality (whether a contractual or statutory duty).

b. Updates to Security Measures. Customer acknowledges that the Security Measures are subject to technical progress and development and that Couchbase may update or modify the Security Measures from time to time, provided that such updates and modifications do not result in the degradation of the overall security of the Cloud Service purchased by the Customer.

c. Customer Security Responsibilities. Customer shall implement and maintain appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect from Security Incidents and to preserve the security and confidentiality of Customer Data under its control. Customer is responsible for (i) protecting the security of all Customer credentials used to access the Cloud Service; (ii) securing the Customer Cloud Environment and any Customer System (with such steps to include, without limitation, the regular rotation of access keys and other industry standard steps to preclude unauthorized access); (iii) backing up and securing Customer Data under Customer’s control within the Customer Cloud Environment or other Customer controlled system; and (iv) reviewing the information made available by Couchbase relating to data security and privacy and making an independent determination as to whether the Cloud Service meet Customer’s requirements and legal obligations under Applicable Data Protection Law.

d. Security Incident Response. To the extent required by Applicable Data Protection Laws, upon becoming aware of a Security Incident, Couchbase shall notify Customer without undue delay via the Cloud Services and shall: (i) include in such notice to Customer timely information relating to the Security Incident as it becomes known, as is reasonably requested by Customer to assist Customer in relation to any required personal data breach notifications under Applicable Data Protection Laws, taking into account the nature of the Cloud Service, the information available to Couchbase, and any restrictions on disclosing the information, such as confidentiality obligations; and (ii) promptly take steps, deemed necessary and reasonable by Couchbase, to contain, investigate, and remediate any Security Incident, to the extent that the remediation is within Couchbase’s reasonable control. Couchbase’s notification of or response to a Security Incident under this Section 4(d) shall not be construed as an acknowledgment by Couchbase of any fault or liability with respect to the Security Incident. The obligations set forth herein shall not apply to Security Incidents to the extent they are caused by Customer or its Authorized Users.

e. Security Audits. Couchbase shall provide written responses (on a confidential basis) to all reasonable written requests for information made by Customer related to Couchbase’s processing of Customer Data, including responses to information security and audit questionnaires that are necessary to confirm Couchbase’s compliance with this DPA, provided that Customer shall not exercise this right more than once in any twelve (12) month rolling period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer may also exercise such audit right in the event Customer is expressly requested or required to provide this information to a data protection authority, or Couchbase has experienced a Security Incident, or on another reasonably similar basis.

5. International Transfers
a. Processing locations. The Cloud Service is designed to allow Customer to determine the Cloud Environment and geographical region in which the Customer’s database instance(s) will be deployed as further described in the Documentation. Customer acknowledges and agrees that as part of providing a managed Cloud Service, Couchbase may transfer Customer Data to locations where Couchbase, its Affiliates or its Sub-processors maintain data processing operations. Couchbase shall at all times ensure such transfers are made in compliance with the requirements of Applicable Data Protection Laws and this DPA.

6. Transfer Mechanisms.

a. Data Privacy Framework. Couchbase participates in and certifies compliance with the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, the UK Extension to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, and the Swiss-US Data Privacy Framework (collectively, the “Data Privacy Framework”). As required by the Data Privacy Framework, Couchbase will (i) provide at least the same level of privacy protection to Customer Data as is required by the Principles and Supplemental Principles in the relevant Data Privacy Framework (the “Principles”), (ii) notify Customer if Couchbase makes a determination it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by the Data Privacy Framework, including the Principles, and (iii) upon notice, take reasonable and appropriate steps to remediate unauthorized processing of Customer Data.

b. Transfers Governed by European Data Protection Laws. To the extent that Couchbase processes (or causes to be processed) any personal data protected by European Data Protection Laws in a third country not recognized as providing adequate protection for personal data (as described in European Data Protection Laws), then the terms and conditions of Annex C (Transfers of Data) will apply and Customer (as data exporter) will be deemed to have entered into the Model Clauses with Couchbase (as data importer) and Couchbase agrees to abide by and process such Customer Data in in compliance with the Model Clauses, which are incorporated in full by reference and form an integral part of this DPA. For the purposes of the descriptions in the Model Clauses: (A) Couchbase agrees that it is a “data importer” and Customer is the “data exporter” (notwithstanding that Customer may itself be an entity located outside the EEA or the United Kingdom); (B) Annex A and Annex B of this DPA shall replace Appendix 1 and Appendix 2 of the Model Clauses. It is not the intention of either party, nor the effect of this DPA, to contradict or restrict any of the provisions set forth in the Model Clauses. Accordingly, if and to the extent the Model Clauses conflict with any provision of this DPA, the Model Clauses shall prevail to the extent of such conflict. The Model Clauses will not apply to Customer Data that is not transferred, either directly or via onward transfer, outside the EEA or the United Kingdom. If and to the extent that Couchbase adopts an alternative data export solution for the transfer of Customer Data as prescribed by applicable European Data Protection Laws (“Alternative Transfer Mechanism“), the Alternative Transfer Mechanism shall apply instead (but only to the extent such Alternative Transfer Mechanism applies to the transfer).


c. Additional Transfer Requirements. If, at any time, Applicable Data Protection Laws require any further steps to be taken in order to permit the transfer of Customer Data as set out in this DPA (including, without limitation, executing or re-executing the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses or UK IDTA as a separate document and/or entering into additional cross-border transfer clauses), and/or the transfer mechanisms in this DPA are amended, replaced, repealed or otherwise terminated under the Applicable Data Protection Law, then Customer and Couchbase agree to work together in good faith to take all steps reasonably required to enable a transfer in compliance with Applicable Data Protection Laws. Additionally, to the extent required under Applicable Data Protection Law, Couchbase will provide reasonably requested information regarding the processing of personal data under the Agreement to enable Customer to carry out data protection impact assessments or prior consultations with supervisory authorities.


7. Deletion of Customer Data
a. The Cloud Service will provide Customer with controls that Customer may use to delete or retrieve Customer Data during the term in a manner consistent with the functionality of the Cloud Service.

b. Customer hereby authorizes Couchbase, upon termination or expiry of the Agreement, or in case of termination or suspension of the Cloud Service pursuant to the Agreement, to delete all Customer Data (including copies) in its possession or control in accordance with the Agreement, save that this requirement shall not apply to the extent Couchbase is required by applicable law to retain some or all of the Customer Data.


8. Rights of Individuals and Cooperation
a. Data Subject Requests. The Cloud Service provides Customer with a number of controls, including security features and functionalities, that Customer may use to retrieve, correct, delete or restrict Customer Data, as described in any documentation applicable to the Cloud Service. Without prejudice to Section 4(a), Customer may use these controls as technical and organizational measures to assist it in connection with its obligations under Applicable Data Protection Laws, including its obligations relating to responding to requests from data subjects. To the extent that Customer is unable to independently access the relevant Customer Data within the Cloud Service, Couchbase shall, taking into account the nature of the processing, provide reasonable cooperation to assist Customer to respond to any requests from individuals or applicable data protection authorities relating to the processing of Customer Data under the Agreement. In the event that any such request that identifies Customer is made to Couchbase directly, Couchbase shall not respond to such communication directly without Customer’s prior authorization, unless legally compelled to do so. If Couchbase is required to respond to such a request, Couchbase shall promptly notify Customer and provide it with a copy of the request unless legally prohibited from doing so.


b. Subpoenas and Court Orders. If a law enforcement agency sends Couchbase a demand for Customer Data (for example, through a subpoena or court order), Couchbase shall give Customer reasonable notice of the demand to allow Customer to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy unless Couchbase is legally prohibited from doing so.


9. Jurisdiction Specific Terms
a. California. To the extent the Customer Data is subject to the CCPA, the parties agree that Customer is a business and that it appoints Couchbase as its service provider (as defined under the CCPA) to process Customer Data as permitted under the Agreement (including this DPA) and the CCPA, or for purposes otherwise agreed in writing (collectively, the “Permitted Purposes”). Customer and Couchbase agree that: (i) Couchbase shall not retain, use or disclose personal information for any purpose other than the Permitted Purposes; (ii) Customer Data was not sold to Couchbase and Couchbase shall not “sell” personal information (as defined by the CCPA); (iii) Couchbase shall not retain, use or disclose personal information outside of the direct business relationship between Customer and Couchbase; and (iv) combine Customer Data with personal information (as defined under the CCPA) that Couchbase has received from another source, except as permitted by the CCPA. The parties agree that Couchbase may de-identify or aggregate personal information in the course of providing the Cloud Service. Couchbase certifies that it understands the restrictions set out in this Section 9(a) and will comply with them. Couchbase will notify Customer if it determines that it can no longer comply with the obligations under this Section 9(a) as a service provider under the CCPA.


10. Limitation of Liability

a. Each Party’s and all of its Affiliates’ liability, taken together in the aggregate, arising out of or related to this DPA (including the Model Clauses) whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or under any other theory of liability, shall be subject to the limitations and exclusions of liability in the Agreement, and any reference in provisions to the liability of a party means the aggregate liability of that party and all of its Affiliates under and in connection with the Agreement and this DPA together.


b. Except where Applicable Data Protection Laws require a Customer Affiliate to exercise a right or seek any remedy under this DPA against Couchbase directly by itself, the parties agree that (i) solely the Customer entity that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall exercise any right or seek any remedy any Customer Affiliate may have under this DPA on behalf of its Affiliates, and (ii) the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall exercise any such rights under this DPA not separately for each Affiliate individually but in a combined manner for all of its Affiliates together.


11. Miscellaneous

a. In the event of any conflict between this DPA and the Agreement, the parties agree that the terms of this DPA shall prevail, provided that if and to the extent there is any conflict between the Standard Contractual Clauses and any other terms in this DPA, the provisions of the Standard Contractual Clauses will prevail with respect to processing governed by the Standard Contractual Clauses. Additionally, if there is any conflict between this DPA and a Business Associate Agreement entered into between the parties (a “BAA”), the provisions of the BAA will prevail with respect to any PHI (as defined in such BAA).


b. The parties agree to attempt in good faith to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to this DPA, before and as a prior condition for commencing legal proceedings of any kind. Any and all negotiations pursuant to this Section 11(b) are confidential and will be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence.


c. Except for the changes made by this DPA, the Agreement remains unchanged and in full force and effect.


d. This DPA may be executed in counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.


e. If any provision or part-provision of this DPA is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed deleted, but that shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the DPA.


f. This DPA shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the governing law and jurisdiction provisions in the Agreement, unless required otherwise by European Data Protection Laws.
