Hofstadter agrees that no Customer’s Personal Data shall be Processed by any Sub-Processor outside the EU/EEA in a Third Country otherwise than in accordance with Chapter V of the GDPR and Hofstadter shall ensure that a legal mechanism to achieve adequacy in respect of that Processing is in place, such as Sub-Processors’ EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework certifications (if any) or Standard Contractual Clauses.
