Sharpr may be required to disclose Personal Data to the extent required to meet a legal obligation, including national security or law enforcement obligations and applicable law, rule, order, or regulation.
“Data Subject” means the individual to whom any given Personal Data covered by this Policy refers.
“Personal Data” means information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person residing in the EU or Switzerland. If the information has been irreversibly stripped of all identifiers such that an individual cannot be identified or re-identified, it is not Personal Data.
“Sensitive Personal Data” means Personal Data regarding any of the following:
Sharpr provides solutions for storing, analyzing and delivering content and business insights. In connection with providing these solutions to its business customers, Sharpr generally serves as a conduit for information controlled by others — it is Sharpr’s customers that control the actual content uploaded into the Sharpr platform (e.g. posts, insights, documents, etc). This Policy applies to the collection, use, and disclosure in the U.S. of Personal Data transferred from the EU or Switzerland to Sharpr in the U.S. of: (i) users of Sharpr’s own websites and applications, and (ii) business contact information associated with our business customers.
6. Data Processed
The types of Consumer Personal Data Sharpr collects includes:
7. Purposes of Data Processing; Disclosure to Third Parties; Choice
Sharpr processes data that is transferred from the EU or Switzerland to Sharpr in the U.S. for purposes of: providing, maintaining, protecting, developing, and improving the solutions we offer to our business customers; detecting and preventing potential fraud and security risks; and supporting Sharpr’s internal business operations (e.g. billing).
Sharpr may use from time to time a limited number of third-party service providers, contractors, and other businesses to assist us in providing our solutions to our customers or in meeting internal business operation needs. These third-parties may access, process or store personal data in the course of performing their duties to Sharpr. Sharpr maintains contracts with these providers restricting their access, use and disclosure of Personal Data in compliance with our obligations under the Principles.
8. Accountability for Onward Transfer
In the event Sharpr discloses Personal Data covered by this Policy to a non-agent third party, it will do so consistent with any notice provided to Data Subjects and any choice they have exercised regarding processing and disclosure. Sharpr will only disclose Personal Data to third parties that have given us contractual assurances that they will provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by this Policy and the Principles and that they will process Personal Data for limited and specific purposes consistent with any consent provided by the individual. If Sharpr has knowledge that a third party to which it has disclosed Personal Data covered by this Policy is processing such Personal Data in a way that is contrary to this Policy and/or the Principles, Sharpr will take steps to prevent or stop such processing. Sharpr shall remain liable if the third-party processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with this Policy, unless Sharpr proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
Sharpr takes reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Consumer Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Data.

Sharpr will take reasonable steps to ensure that such Personal Data is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use.
Data Subjects have the right to access Personal Data about them that is covered by this Policy and to correct, amend, or delete such Personal Data if they can demonstrate that it is inaccurate or incomplete (except when the burden or expense of providing access, correction, amendment, or deletion would be disproportionate to the risks to the Data Subject’s privacy, or where the rights of persons other than the Data Subject would be violated).

Sharpr’s Corporate Trust Commitment
Sharpr is committed to achieving and maintaining the trust of our customers. Integral to this mission is providing a robust security and privacy program that carefully considers data protection matters across our suite of services, including data submitted by customers to our services (“Customer Data”).
This documentation describes the architecture of, the security and privacy-related audits and certifications received for, and the administrative, technical and physical controls applicable to the services offered by Sharpr (the “Sharpr Services”).
Sharpr owns or controls access to the infrastructure that Sharpr uses to host Customer Data submitted to the Sharpr Services. Each instance of the Sharpr Services contains servers and other elements to make it run. Each instance in a primary data center has an exact copy in a secondary data center.
Audits and Certifications
The following security and privacy-related audits and certifications are applicable to the Sharpr Services:
Additionally, the Sharpr Services undergo security assessments by internal personnel and third parties, which include infrastructure vulnerability assessments and application security assessments, on at least an annual basis.
The Sharpr Services include a variety of configurable security controls that allow customers to tailor the security of the Sharpr Services for their own use. These controls are set forth in the Security Implementation Guide.
Security Procedures, Policies and Logging
The Sharpr Services are operated in accordance with the following procedures to enhance security:
Sharpr, or an authorized third party, will monitor the Sharpr Services for unauthorized intrusions using network based intrusion detection mechanisms. Sharpr may analyze data collected by users’ web browsers (e.g., device type, screen resolution, time zone, operating system version, browser type and version, system fonts, installed browser plug-ins, enabled MIME types, etc.) for security purposes, including to detect compromised browsers, to prevent fraudulent authentications, and to ensure that the Sharpr Services function properly.
All Sharpr systems used in the provision of the Sharpr Services, including firewalls, routers, network switches and operating systems, log information to their respective system log facility or a centralized syslog server (for network systems) in order to enable security reviews and analysis.
Sharpr maintains security incident management policies and procedures. Sharpr promptly notifies impacted customers of any actual or reasonably suspected unauthorized disclosure of their respective Customer Data by Sharpr or its agents of which Sharpr becomes aware to the extent permitted by law.
Access to Sharpr Services requires authentication via one of the supported mechanisms as described in the Security Implementation Guide, including user ID/password, SAML based Federation, Oauth, Social Login, or Delegated Authentication as determined and controlled by the customer. Following successful authentication, a random session ID is generated and stored in the user’s browser to preserve and track session state.
Production data centers used to provide the Sharpr Services have access control systems. These systems permit only authorized personnel to have access to secure areas. These facilities are designed to withstand adverse weather and other reasonably predictable natural conditions, are secured by around-the-clock guards, two-factor access screening, including biometrics, and escort-controlled access, and are also supported by on-site back-up generators in the event of a power failure.
Reliability and Backup
All networking components, SSL accelerators, load balancers, Web servers and application servers are configured in a redundant configuration. All Customer Data submitted to the Sharpr Services is stored on a primary database server with multiple active clusters for higher availability. All Customer Data submitted to the Sharpr Services is stored on carrier-class disk storage using redundant devices and multiple data paths to ensure reliability and performance. All Customer Data submitted to the Sharpr Services, up to the last committed transaction, is automatically replicated on a near real-time basis to the secondary site and is backed up on a regular basis and stored on backup media for an additional 3 days in production environments and 30 days in Sandbox environments after which it is securely overwritten or deleted from the Sharpr Services. Any backups are verified for integrity and stored in Sharpr data centers.
Sharpr has disaster recovery plans in place and tests them at least once per year. The Sharpr Services utilize secondary facilities that are geographically remote from their primary data centers, along with required hardware, software, and Internet connectivity, in the event Sharpr production facilities at the primary data centers were to be rendered unavailable. The Sharpr Services’ disaster recovery plans currently have the following target recovery objectives: (a) restoration of the Sharpr Service within 12 hours after Sharpr’s declaration of a disaster; and (b) maximum Customer Data loss of 24 hours; excluding, however, a disaster or multiple disasters causing the compromise of both data centers at the same time, and excluding development and test bed environments, such as the Sandbox service.
The Sharpr Services does scan for viruses that could be included in attachments or other Customer Data uploaded into the Sharpr Services by a customer but we DO NOT guarantee we will find all viruses and shall not be liable for a failure to detect all viruses. Uploaded attachments, however, are executed in the Sharpr Services and could potentially damage or compromise the Sharpr Services by virtue of containing a virus. Customers shall be liable for any damage or loss resulting from viruses contained in any uploaded attachment.
The Sharpr Services use industry-accepted encryption products to protect Customer Data and communications during transmissions between a customer’s network and the Sharpr Services, including 128-bit TLS Certificates and 2048-bit RSA public keys at a minimum. Additionally, Customer Data is encrypted during transmission between data centers for replication purposes.
Return of Customer Data
Within 30 days post contract termination, customers may request return of their respective Customer Data submitted to the Sharpr Services. Sharpr shall provide such Customer Data via a downloadable file in comma separated value (.csv) format and attachments in their native format.
Deletion of Customer Data
After contract termination, Customer Data submitted to the Sharpr Services is retained in inactive status within the Sharpr Services for 180 days and a transition period of up to 30 days, after which it is securely overwritten or deleted. In accordance with the Reliability and Backup section above, Customer Data submitted to the Sharpr Services (including Customer Data retained in inactive status) will be stored on backup media for an additional 90 days in production environments and 30 days in Sandbox environments after it is securely overwritten or deleted from the Sharpr Services. Physical media on which Customer Data is stored during the contract term is not removed from the data centers that Sharpr uses to host Customer Data unless the media is at the end of its useful life or being deprovisioned, in which case the media is first sanitized before removal. This process is subject to applicable legal requirements.
Without limiting the ability for customers to request return of their Customer Data submitted to the Sharpr Services, Sharpr reserves the right to reduce the number of days it retains such data after contract termination. Sharpr will update this Sharpr Security, Privacy, and Architecture Documentation in the event of such a change.
Tracking and Analytics
Sharpr may track and analyze use of the Sharpr Services for purposes of security and helping Sharpr improve both the Sharpr Services and the user experience in using the Sharpr Services. Sharpr may also use this information and users’ e-mail addresses to contact customers or their users to provide transactional information about the Sharpr Services. Sharpr will offer customers and users the ability to opt out of receiving such emails.
Without limiting the foregoing, Sharpr may share anonymous data about Sharpr’s customers’ or their users’ use of the Sharpr Services (“Usage Statistics”) to Sharpr’s service providers for the purpose of helping Sharpr in such tracking or analysis, including improving its users’ experience with the Sharpr Services, or as required by law. Additionally, Sharpr may share such anonymous data with other customers on an aggregate basis. Except when required by law, any such sharing of Usage Statistics will not include any identifying information about Sharpr’s customers or customers’ users.
Inter operation with Other Sharpr Services
The Sharpr Services may interoperate with other services provided by Sharpr. The Security, Privacy and Architecture documentation for such services is available in the Trust and Compliance Documentation section of help.sharpr.com.

Upon a Customer’s request, the Sharpr Group shall provide the Customer with cooperation and assistance in a reasonable period of time and to the extent reasonably possible in relation to any regulatory inquiry or complaint involving the Sharpr Group’s processing of Personal Data.
5. Description of Processing Operations and Transfers
A. Purpose Limitation
The Sharpr Group shall process Personal Data only for the following purposes: (i) processing in accordance with a Customer’s instructions set forth in the Customer’s contract with a member of the Sharpr Group; and (ii) processing initiated by the Customer in its use of the Services. If the Sharpr Group cannot comply with such purpose limitation, a member of the Sharpr Group shall promptly notify the relevant Customer, and such Customer shall be entitled to suspend the transfer of Personal Data and/or terminate the applicable order form(s) in respect to only those Services which cannot be provided by the Sharpr Group in accordance with such Customer’s instructions. On the termination of the provision of such Services, the Sharpr Group and third-party sub-processors shall, at the choice of the Customer, return the Personal Data to the Customer and/or delete the Personal Data as set forth in the applicable customer contract.
B. Data Quality
Customers have access to, and control of, Personal Data in their use of the Services. To the extent a Customer, in its use of the Services, does not have the ability to anonymize, correct, amend or delete Personal Data, as required by applicable laws, the Sharpr Group shall comply with any request by a Customer in a reasonable period of time and to the extent reasonably possible to facilitate such actions by executing any measures necessary to comply with the law, in a reasonable period of time and to the extent reasonably possible to the extent the Sharpr Group is legally permitted to do so. The Sharpr Group will, to the extent reasonably required for this purpose, inform each member of the Sharpr Group to whom the Personal Data may be stored of any anonymization, rectification, amendment or deletion of such data. If any such anonymization, correction, amendment or deletion request is applicable to a third-party sub-processor’s processing of Personal Data, the Sharpr Group shall communicate such request to the applicable third-party sub-processor(s).
Within the Sharpr Group As set forth in applicable contracts with Customers, members of the Sharpr Group may be retained as sub-processors of Personal Data, and depending on the location of the Sharpr Group member, processing of Personal Data by such sub-processors may involve transfers of Personal Data. The Sharpr Processor BCR extends to all members of the Sharpr Group.
ii. Sub-processing by Third Parties
As set forth in applicable contracts with Customers, members of the Sharpr Group may retain thirdparty sub-processors, and depending on the location of the third-party sub-processor, processing of Personal Data by such sub-processors may involve transfers of Personal Data. Such third-party subprocessors shall process Personal Data only (i) in accordance with the Customer’s instructions set forth in the Customer’s contract with a member of the Sharpr Group; or (ii) if processing is initiated by the Customer in its use of the Services. The current list of third-party sub-processors engaged in processing Personal Data, including a description of their processing activities, is available at here. Such third-party sub-processors have entered into written agreements with a member of the Sharpr Group in accordance with the applicable requirements of Articles 16, 17, 25 and 26 of EU Data Protection Directive and Sections 3 – 10 of the Sharpr Processor BCR as applicable to the third-party subprocessor’s processing activities.
iii. Notification of New Sub-processors and Objection Rights
As set forth in applicable contracts with Customers, the Sharpr Group shall provide Customers with prior notification before a new sub-processor begins processing Personal Data. Within thirty (30) days of receiving such notice, a Customer may object to the Sharpr Group’s use of a new sub-processor subject to the following:
It would be unreasonable for a Customer to object to a new sub-processor that is a member of the Sharpr Group if (a) the sub-processor is subject to the Sharpr Processor BCR; and (b) has achieved a third-party, internationally-recognized security certification (e.g., ISO 27001) unless the Customer demonstrates reasonable suspicion that the new sub-processor will not be able to comply with its obligations under the Sharpr Processor BCR.
Unless a Customer demonstrates reasonable suspicion that a new third-party sub-processor introduces unreasonable risk to the protection of Personal Data (e.g., a history of security breaches), it would be unreasonable for a Customer to object to a new third-party sub-processor if (a) the new third-party sub-processor is located in a country that provides an adequate level of protection per the European Commission or has entered into a contract with a member of the Sharpr Group containing the applicable requirements of the European Commission’s controller-to-processor standard contractual clauses; and (b) the new third-party sub-processor has passed the Sharpr Group’s vendor security evaluation based on a third-party, internationally-recognized security framework.
In the event a Customer objects to a new sub-processor, and that objection is not unreasonable under the standards described above, the Sharpr Group will use reasonable efforts to make available to the Customer a change in the Services or recommend a commercially reasonable change to the Customer’s configuration or use of the Services to avoid processing of Personal Data by the objected-to new subprocessor without unreasonably burdening the Customer. If the Sharpr Group is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period of time, which shall not exceed sixty (60) days, the Customer may terminate the applicable order form(s) in respect only to those Services which cannot be provided by the Sharpr Group without the use of the objected-to new sub-processor by providing written notice to the member of the Sharpr Group with whom the customer has contracted. Such Customer shall receive a refund of any prepaid fees for the period following the effective date of termination for such terminated Services.
6. Confidentiality and Security Measures
A. Confidentiality and Training The Sharpr Group shall ensure that its personnel engaged in the processing of Personal Data are informed of the confidential nature of the Personal Data, have executed written confidentiality agreements and have received appropriate training on their responsibilities. Additionally, the Sharpr Group shall ensure that its personnel responsible for the development of tools used to process Personal Data have received appropriate training on their responsibilities. The Sharpr Group shall also ensure that its personnel engaged in the processing of Personal Data are limited to those personnel who require such access to perform the Sharpr Group’s obligations under applicable contracts with Customers.
B. Data Security The Sharpr Group shall maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of Personal Data, as set forth in applicable contracts with Customers. The Sharpr Group regularly monitors compliance with these safeguards.

C. Security Breach Notification In the event a member of the Sharpr Group becomes aware of any unauthorized access to or disclosure of Personal Data, the Sharpr Group will promptly notify affected Customers to the extent such notification is permitted by applicable law.
D. Audits The Sharpr Group shall maintain an audit program to help ensure compliance with the Sharpr Processor BCR, including the following third-party audits and certifications, internal verification and audits by Customers.

ii. Internal Verification
The Sharpr Group has appointed a network of privacy personnel responsible for overseeing and ensuring compliance with the Sharpr Group’s data protection responsibilities at a local and global level, including compliance with this Sharpr Processor BCR, advising management on data protection matters, liaising with data protection authorities, and handling data protection-related complaints. Each member of the Sharpr Group shall be assigned such a member of network of privacy personnel. Such privacy personnel are primarily responsible for privacy-related matters and report to the Sharpr Group’s appointed privacy leader, who reports to the Sharpr Group’s general counsel, and benefit from the support of the Sharpr Group’s top management.

The Sharpr Group’s network of privacy personnel have regional responsibility for the Sharpr Group’s compliance with applicable privacy and data protection laws. The Sharpr Group’s compliance department shall conduct an annual assessment of the Sharpr Group’s compliance with the Sharpr Processor BCR, which is provided to the Sharpr Group’s appointed privacy leader, compliance officer and salesforce.com, inc.’s board of directors. Such an assessment shall include any necessary corrective actions, timeframes for completing such corrective actions, and follow up by Sharpr’s compliance department to ensure such corrective actions have been completed.
iii. Customer Audits
Upon a Customer’s request, and subject to appropriate confidentiality obligations, the Sharpr Group shall make available to the Customer (or such Customer’s independent, third-party auditor that is not a competitor of the Sharpr Group) information regarding the Sharpr Group’s and third-party subprocessors’ compliance with the data protection controls set forth in this Sharpr Processor BCR. This includes providing the requesting Customer a report of the Sharpr Group’s audits of third-party processors, which Customers instruct the Sharpr Group to conduct in their applicable contracts. A Customer (or such Customer’s independent, third-party auditor that is not a competitor of the Sharpr Group) may also request to conduct an on-site audit of the architecture, systems and procedures relevant to the protection of Personal Data at the locations where Personal Data is stored, including applicable members of the Sharpr Group and third-party sub-processors, by following the instructions set forth in its applicable contract. Customers shall reimburse the Sharpr Group for any time expended by the Sharpr Group or its third-party sub-processors for such on-site audit at the Sharpr Group’s then-current professional service rates, which shall be made available to Customers upon their request. Before any such on-site audit commences, the requesting Customer and the Sharpr Group shall mutually agree upon the scope, timing, and duration of the audit in addition to the reimbursement rate for which the Customer shall be responsible. All reimbursement rates shall be reasonable, taking into account the resources expended by the Sharpr Group or its third-party subprocessors. As set forth in applicable contracts with Customers, a Customer who performs an audit in accordance with this Section must promptly provide the Sharpr Group with information regarding any noncompliance discovered during the course of an audit.
7. Third-Party Beneficiary Rights
Data Subjects may directly enforce against third-party sub-processors breaches of the written agreement with members of the Sharpr Group which relate to the third-party sub-processors’ obligations to comply with Sections 3-10 of the Sharpr Processor BCR, as applicable to the thirdparty sub-processor’s processing activities, as third-party beneficiaries. Such third-party beneficiary rights shall be limited to those situations where a Data Subject is unable to bring a claim against the relevant Customer and members of the Sharpr Group because such entities have factually ceased to Sharpr Processor exist in law or become insolvent and have not named successor entities to assume their respective legal obligations. Such third-party liability of third-party sub-processors shall be limited to their own processing operations. In accordance with Section 8 of the Sharpr Processor BCR, a Data Subject’s third-party beneficiary rights, if applicable, shall cover judicial remedies for any breach of the rights provided in the Sharpr Processor BCR and the right to receive compensation for damages.
8. Liability and Enforcement
Sharpr’s contracts with Customers shall include a reference to the Sharpr Processor BCR. In accordance with such contracts, Customers shall have the right to enforce the Sharpr Processor BCR against the Sharpr Group, including judicial remedies and the right to receive compensation.

Upon request and subject to duties of confidentiality, the Sharpr Group shall provide relevant member state data protection authorities with jurisdiction over the Sharpr Group or competent for Customers (i) a copy of the Sharpr Group’s annual assessment of compliance with the Sharpr Processor BCR and/or other documentation reasonably requested; and (ii) the ability to conduct an onsite audit of the Sharpr Group’s architecture, systems and procedures relevant to the protection of Personal Data.
10. Local Law Requirements
As set forth in applicable contracts with Customers, the Sharpr Group shall comply with applicable law in its processing of Personal Data. Where applicable law requires a higher level of protection for Personal Data than provided for in the Sharpr Processor BCR, the local applicable law shall take precedence.
