Pursuant to and for the purposes of the provisions of Article 13 of the Agreement, Tangoo, as Data Controller, informs the Client that all personal data supplied directly by the Client or in the possession of which Tangoo comes for the performance of the Agreement and in any case connected with the Agreement itself, relating to its staff or collaborators or third parties, will be processed, whether automated or not, exclusively for management and administrative purposes relating to the fulfilment of contractual and legislative obligations. The communication of data is necessary for the fulfilment of the aforementioned purposes and in default it will not be possible to realize them in whole or in part. The personal data will be used by Tangoo only through methods and procedures which are necessary to achieve the indicated purposes.
Tangoo informs the Client, in relation to the processing of personal data described in this article 6.1, that the data subjects shall have the right to access, delete, rectify, update, have incomplete data completed, object to the processing of personal data, as well as all the other rights granted by the Regulation, by means of a written request to the Data Controller.

6.2. ADV Services: privacy obligations and warranties. In case the Services shall require Tangoo to access Client’s already existing accounts on digital marketing platforms, software and services like, by way of example but not limited to, analytics tools and other tools related to programmatic advertising (together, the “ADV Services”) the Client recognizes and accepts that Tangoo shall act, regarding personal data processed via the ADV Services on behalf of the Client, as Data Processor in accordance with article 28 of the Regulation and the Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”) attached to this Agreement shall apply.

Client shall be therefore responsible for autonomously assessing its relationship with any Service in connection with the New Accounts pursuant to, inter alia, the Privacy Law and according to the circumstances of the concrete case, and undertakes to enter into any data processing agreement or similar agreements with the ADV Services, in relation to the New Accounts, possibly provided by Tangoo on Client’s behalf, thanks to Tangoo’s intermediation activity, as well as to accept any general and/or special terms and conditions of such ADV Service; and (b) the provisions of this article 6.3 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to any insertion order and/or order form to be entered into by Tangoo for Client’s Services upon Client’s request and involving ADV Services that do not require the activation of accounts.
6.4. Client acknowledges and agrees that Tangoo does not autonomously collect and/or process any Personal Data in connection with the activities to be performed under this Agreement. Therefore, Client shall prevent the transfer of any such Personal Data to Tangoo and warrants that: (a) the information shared with Tangoo for the purpose of the Services will not contain any personal data; and (b) Client shall not commit any act or omit to act in a way which places or is likely to place Tangoo in breach of Privacy Law. Without prejudice to the foregoing: (a) Client acknowledges and agrees that the ADV Services may autonomously collect personal data on Client’s digital properties (“Client Properties”) through their respective tracking tools and undertakes to comply with all the provisions of the Privacy Law to allow the correct use of ADV Services’ tracking tools on Client Properties; and (b) should the information shared by the Client include any personal data (e.g., online identifier, IP address, user device ID, customer identification location, etc.), Client is – or shall be regarded as – the Data Controller of such personal data and Tangoo is – or shall be regarded as – the Data Processor of such personal data in accordance with Article 28 of the Regulation and the attached DPA. In this respect, Client shall ensure that the processing operations are performed only in the EEA or in a third country that, according to the European Commission, ensures an adequate level of data protection or, in alternative, shall provide for the processing to be covered by adequate guarantees in this regard (e.g., execution of standard clauses for the transfer of personal data, etc.). The processing activities will take place only for the Term and in connection with the activities to be performed under this Agreement. Tangoo shall comply, to this regard, with the instruction provided by the Client in the DPA and any additional document or mean. Tangoo acknowledges and agrees that the activity under this article 6.4 does not provide for any additional compensation to Tangoo beyond that already agreed in this Agreement.
