- 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses. For transfers of Customer Personal Data out of the EEA that are subject to Section 4(a) of this DPA, the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses will apply and are incorporated into this Addendum. For purposes of this Addendum, the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses will apply as set forth in this Section 4(b). “Module Two: Transfer controller to processor” will apply and all other module options will not apply. Under Annex 1 of the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses, the “data exporter” is Customer and the “data importer” is Bento and the information required by Annex 1 can be found in Exhibit 1.

References to the GDPR in the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses are to be understood as references to the FADP insofar as the data transfers are subject exclusively to the FADP and not to the GDPR. The term “member state” in the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses shall not be interpreted in such a way as to exclude data subjects in Switzerland from the possibility of suing for their rights in their place of habitual residence (Switzerland) in accordance with Clause 18(c) of the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses. References to personal data in the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses also refer to data about identifiable legal entities until the entry into force of revisions to the FADP that eliminate this broader scope.Under Annex I(C) of the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses (Competent supervisory authority): where the transfer is subject exclusively to the FADP and not the GDPR, the supervisory authority is the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner, and where the transfer is subject to both the FADP and the GDPR, the supervisory authority is the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner insofar as the transfer is governed by the FADP, and the supervisory authority is as set forth in the 2021 Standard Contractual Clauses insofar as the transfer is governed by the GDPR.
- Each party’s signature to this Addendum shall be considered a signature to the Standard Contractual Clauses. If required by the laws or regulatory procedures of any jurisdiction, the Parties shall execute or re-execute the Standard Contractual Clauses as separate documents. In case of conflict between the Standard Contractual Clauses and this Addendum, the Standard Contractual Clauses will prevail.

We may terminate or suspend your account and bar access to Service immediately, without prior notice or liability, under our sole discretion, for reasons including but not limited to a breach of Terms. If you wish to terminate your account, you may simply discontinue using Service. All provisions of Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
18. Governing Law
These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have had between us regarding Service.
19. Changes To Service
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend our Service, and any service or material we provide via Service, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of Service is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of Service, or the entire Service, to users, including registered users.
20. Amendment to Terms
We may amend Terms at any time by posting the amended terms on this site. It is your responsibility to review these Terms periodically. Your continued use of the Platform following the posting of revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page frequently so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you. By continuing to access or use our Service after any revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, you are no longer authorized to use Service.
21. Waiver and Severability
No waiver by Company of any term or condition set forth in Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Company to assert a right or provision under Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of Terms will continue in full force and effect.
If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by Customer except with Company’s prior written consent.

No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and Customer does not have any authority of any kind to bind Company in any respect whatsoever. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees.
