Your (“You”, “Your” or “User”) use of the website, https://synt.com, (hereinafter referred to as the “Website”) is subject to the notices, terms, and conditions set forth in these Terms of Service (“Terms”).
Accessing, browsing, or otherwise using the website indicates your acceptance of all the terms and conditions in these terms of service. Please read these terms carefully before proceeding. You declare your willingness to abide and be bound by these terms throughout your use of the website. If you do not agree with the terms, please do not use this Website.
Agreement on the Processing of Personal Data
This Annex 1 applies to the relationship between You and SYNT, particularly when your business activities fall under the scope of the GDPR, as per Article 3 of the GDPR.
In providing Services to the User, SYNT is responsible for processing personal data on behalf of the User. This processing continues for the duration of the contractual relationship between SYNT and the User.
The processing activities conducted by SYNT on behalf of the User include:
1. User’s Instructions
SYNT commits to processing personal data solely for the purpose of performing the Services in line with the User’s instructions. Therefore, SYNT agrees not to sell, rent, transfer, or otherwise disclose any part of the personal data to third parties, free of charge or otherwise, and will not use the personal data for any purposes other than those stipulated in the General Conditions of Use, the Terms and Conditions, and this Data Processing Agreement (DPA), as well as the functionalities available on SYNT’s platform.
Should SYNT believe that a User’s instruction violates any applicable law, SYNT will promptly inform the User.
Confidentiality and Security
SYNT ensures the confidentiality of personal data processed in connection with the Services. This includes:
Notification of Personal Data Breaches
In case of a data breach resulting in unauthorized access to or handling of personal data, SYNT will notify the User without undue delay after becoming aware of it. SYNT will also assist the User in mitigating any adverse effects and in fulfilling their obligations to report the breach to the appropriate authorities and, if necessary, to the affected data subjects.
Assisting the User
SYNT will assist the User by:
Data Access / Deletion
Users can access or delete their personal data processed by SYNT at any time. Upon termination of the contractual relationship, SYNT will, upon the User’s request, archive or return all personal data to the User or a designated processor, and delete existing copies in SYNT’s systems, unless legally required to retain them.
SYNT commits to providing the User with necessary information and documents to demonstrate compliance with the obligations outlined in this agreement, including SYNT’s audit reports. The User acknowledges that any audit rights granted by applicable data protection laws and regulations will be satisfied by such disclosures, subject to reasonable confidentiality controls. SYNT will respond on a best effort basis and without undue delay.
If the provided disclosures are insufficient for the User to fulfill its obligations under applicable data protection laws and regulations, or if the User is required to provide information related to SYNT’s service following a regulatory authority audit, SYNT and the User will enter into a mutually agreed-upon agreement to organize an audit. This agreement will include an audit plan that:
The User is informed and expressly agrees that SYNT may use sub-processors in the context of the Services, who will access/process personal data on behalf of the User. The current list of relevant processors is available: [insert link to the list].
The User acknowledges that some of these sub-processors are located outside the European Union, including in the United States. The User expressly authorizes SYNT to transfer personal data outside the European Union. SYNT commits to implementing necessary safeguards to oversee these transfers in compliance with applicable regulations, ensuring an adequate level of protection for the processed Customer Data, in line with Data Protection laws (including Standard Contractual Clauses and supplementary measures).
Should there be any changes to the list of sub-processors, SYNT will notify the User via email or through the customer account. The User will have the option to cancel their subscription if they object to the changes. This notification will include information about any potential transfers of personal data outside the European Union.
When SYNT employs sub-processors to conduct specific processing activities on behalf of and as instructed by the User, the same level of data protection as stipulated in this DPA is contractually imposed on the sub-processors. This includes providing sufficient guarantees regarding the implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures.
SYNT is responsible for ensuring that sub-processors offer adequate guarantees to ensure that the processing meets GDPR requirements. If sub-processors fail to fulfill their data protection obligations, SYNT remains liable to the User for the performance of these obligations by the sub-processors.
