Security Incidents. If 8x8 becomes aware of a confirmed Security Incident, it shall inform Customer without undue delay and shall provide reasonable information and cooperation to Customer so that Customer can timely fulfil any data breach reporting obligations that Customer might have under Applicable Data Protection Law. 8x8 shall further take measures and actions reasonably necessary to remedy or mitigate the effects of the Security Incident and shall keep Customer informed of all material developments in connection therewith.

EU-8.4.9. Deletion or Return of Data. Upon termination or expiration of the Agreement, and without prejudice to the other provisions of the Agreement that contemplate data storage, 8x8 shall, at Customer’s election and cost, destroy or return to Customer all Customer Personal Data in 8x8’s possession or control. The foregoing requirement shall not apply to the extent that 8x8 is required by applicable law to retain some or all of the Customer Personal Data, or to retain Customer Personal Data that 8x8 has archived on back-up systems, which Customer Personal Data 8x8 shall securely isolate and protect from any further processing not required or permitted by such law.

Upon Customer’s reasonable request, 8x8 shall supply a summary copy of its audit report(s) to Customer, provided that Customer shall (a) keep such reports confidential and not disclose them to any party other than those of its own personnel and advisors to whom such disclosure is necessary in connection with Customer’s reasonable compliance and data security efforts and whom are bound to reasonable confidentiality obligations with respect to such report(s), (b) not use such report(s) except in connection with such efforts, and (c) protect their confidentiality with the same degree of care as Customer uses to protect its own confidential information of like kind, but in no event less than reasonable care.
