Google Measurement Controller-Controller Data Protection Terms

 The Measurement Services customer agreeing to these terms (“Customer”) has entered into an agreement with either Google or a third party reseller (as applicable) for the provision of the Measurement Services (as amended from time to time, the “Agreement”) through which services user interface Customer has enabled the Data Sharing Setting.

These Google Measurement Controller-Controller Data Protection Terms (“Controller Terms”) are entered into by Google and Customer. Where the Agreement is between Customer and Google, these Controller Terms supplement the Agreement. Where the Agreement is between Customer and a third party reseller, these Controller Terms form a separate agreement between Google and Customer.

For the avoidance of doubt, the provision of the Measurement Services is governed by the Agreement. These Controller Terms set out the data protection provisions relating to the Data Sharing Setting only but do not otherwise apply to the provision of the Measurement Services.

Subject to Section 6.2 (No Effect on Processor Terms), these Controller Terms will be effective, and replace any previously applicable terms relating to their subject matter, from the Terms Effective Date.

If you are accepting these Controller Terms on behalf of Customer, you warrant that: (a) you have full legal authority to bind Customer to these Controller Terms; (b) you have read and understand these Controller Terms; and (c) you agree, on behalf of Customer, to these Controller Terms. If you do not have the legal authority to bind Customer, please do not accept these Controller Terms.

Please do not accept these Controller Terms if you are a reseller. These Controller Terms set out the rights and obligations that apply between users of the Measurement Services and Google.

  • (a) Incident Notification. If Google becomes aware of a Data Incident (as defined below), Google will: (i) notify Customer of the Data Incident without undue delay; and (ii) promptly take reasonable steps to minimize harm and secure Customer Personal Data. In this Appendix 1B, “Data Incident” means a breach of Google’s security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, Customer Personal Data on systems managed by or otherwise controlled by Google. “Data Incidents” will not include unsuccessful attempts or activities that do not compromise the security of Customer Personal Data, including unsuccessful log-in attempts, pings, port scans, denial of service attacks, and other network attacks on firewalls or networked systems.
  • (b) Delivery of Notification. Google will deliver its notification of any Data Incident to the email address designated by Customer, via the user interface of the RDP Services or such other means provided by Google, to receive certain notifications from Google relating to this Appendix 1B (“Notification Email Address”) or, at Google’s discretion (including if Customer has not provided a Notification Email Address), by other direct communication (for example, phone call, email, or an in-person meeting). Customer is solely responsible for providing the Notification Email Address and ensuring that the Notification Email Address is current and valid.
  • (c) Third Party Notifications. Customer is solely responsible for complying with incident notification laws applicable to Customer and fulfilling any third party notification obligations related to any Data Incident.
  • (d) No Acknowledgement of Fault by Google. Google’s notification of or response to a Data Incident under this paragraph 3.3.2 (Data Incidents) will not be construed as an acknowledgement by Google of any fault or liability with respect to the Data Incident.

3.3.3 Customer’s Security Responsibilities and Assessment.

  • (a) Customer’s Security Responsibilities. Customer agrees that, without prejudice to Google’s obligations under paragraphs 3.3.1 (Google’s Security Measures and Assistance) and 3.3.2 (Data Incidents):
    • (i) Customer is responsible for its use of the RDP Services, including: (1) making appropriate use of the RDP Services to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk in respect of Customer Personal Data; and (2) securing the account authentication credentials, systems and devices Customer uses to access the RDP Services; and
    • (ii) Google has no obligation to protect Customer Personal Data that Customer elects to store or transfer outside of Google’s and its subcontractors’ systems.
  • (b) Customer’s Security Assessment. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Security Measures implemented and maintained by Google as set out in paragraph 3.3.1(a) (Google’s Security Measures) provide a level of security appropriate to the risk in respect of Customer Personal Data, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing of Customer Personal Data as well as the risks to individuals.
  • (c) Customer’s Audit Rights.
    • (i) Customer may conduct an audit to verify Google’s compliance with its obligations under this Appendix 1B by requesting and reviewing (1) a certificate issued for security verification reflecting the outcome of an audit conducted by a third party auditor (e.g., SOC 2 Type II or ISO/IEC 27001 certification or a comparable certification or other security certification of an audit conducted by a third-party auditor agreed by Customer and Google) within 12 months as of the date of Customer’s request and (2) any other information Google determines is reasonably necessary for Customer to verify such compliance.
    • (ii) Alternatively, Google may, at its sole discretion and in response to a request by Customer, initiate a third-party audit to verify Google’s compliance with its obligations under this Appendix 1B. During such an audit, Google will make available to the third-party auditor all information necessary to demonstrate such compliance. Where Customer requests such an audit, Google may charge a fee (based on Google’s reasonable costs) for any audit. Google will provide Customer with further details of any applicable fee, and the basis of its calculation, in advance of any such audit. Customer will be responsible for any fees charged by any third-party auditor appointed by Customer to execute any such audit.
    • (iii) Nothing in this Appendix 1B will require Google either to disclose to Customer or its third-party auditor, or to allow Customer or its third-party auditor to access:
      • (1) any data of any other customer of a Google Entity;
      • (2) any Google Entity’s internal accounting or financial information;
      • (3) any trade secret of a Google Entity;
      • (4) any information that, in Google's reasonable opinion, could: (A) compromise the security of any Google Entity’s systems or premises; or (B) cause any Google Entity to breach its obligations under the US State Privacy Laws or its security and/or privacy obligations to Customer or any third party; or
      • (5) any information that Customer or its third party auditor seeks to access for any reason other than the good faith fulfillment of Customer’s obligations under the US State Privacy Laws.

3.4 Assistance with Impact Assessments. Google will (taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to Google) assist Customer in meeting Customer’s (or, where Customer is a processor, the relevant controller’s) obligations relating to data protection impact assessments and prior regulatory consultations to the extent required under the US State Privacy Laws by:

  • (a) providing the Security Documentation;
  • (b) providing the information contained in the Agreement (including this Appendix 1B); and

  • (b) advise the data subject to submit their request to Customer, and Customer will be responsible for responding to such request (if the request is not made via a Data Subject Tool).

3.5.2 Google’s Data Subject Request Assistance.
