Data Privacy and Security; Protected Health Information.
- Roles; Compliance with Law. In connection with the Services Prism is at all times a “service provider,” “processor, “sub-processor,” “business associate” or similar in relation to Customer, Authorized Users, Customer’s clients and all Customer Data, and Customer is a “controller,” “business,” “customer,” “covered entity” or similar in relation to Prism and all Customer Data, in each case under applicable Data Protection Laws. Each Party shall comply with all applicable Data Protection Laws in connection with their respective performance under the Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
- In addition to its obligations under Section 7, Customer shall ensure that (A) the collection, use and disclosure to Prism of all Personal Information in connection with the Services is in compliance with Data Protection Laws and applicable telecommunications laws and appropriately disclosed to each individual to whom such Personal Information relates, and (B) no Personal Information other than Customer’s business contact information and information that is subject to the BAA (defined below) or similar agreement or addendum regarding protected health information is included among Customer Data or otherwise disclosed to Prism.
- Prism does not sell Personal Information and shall not collect, retain, use, or disclose Personal Information for any purpose other than to perform its obligations and exercise its rights under the Agreement.
- Each Party shall cooperate with the other Party (at such other Party’s expense) in connection with any notice or inquiry response required under Data Protection Laws.
- Prism Systems and Security. Prism will employ reasonable and appropriate security measures, including encryption, consistent with its role and in accordance with its then-current data privacy and security notices and policies as may be posted on the Prism website or accessible through the Services, as applicable. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in the Agreement or in such notices and policies, the data privacy and security policies of Prism’s subcontractor(s) shall govern as to the Services and applicable Customer Data hosted or managed by such Subcontractor(s).
- Data Backup. Prism takes reasonable steps to maintain regular data backups and maintain redundant data archives. Nevertheless, Prism cannot guarantee the occurrence or integrity of any such backup or archive. Accordingly, Customer acknowledges that it is responsible for downloading and backing up its own data, and Prism has no obligation or liability for any loss, destruction, damage, corruption or recovery of Customer Data.
- Protected Health Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Customer is a “covered entity” under HIPAA and, as such, may disclose to Prism Customer Data that constitutes “protected health information” under HIPAA, and where such disclosure is permitted under the Agreement, then the Agreement shall include the additional terms and conditions set forth in the BAA. Except as otherwise agreed in writing, the BAA that is current as of the Effective Date may be attached as a schedule to the Ordering Documents or otherwise provided by Prism to Customer, including on Prism’s website or in connection with Customer’s access of the Services. Prism may modify its standard version of the BAA from time to time in its sole discretion by posting a revised version on the Prism website or making a revised version available to Customer in connection with Customer’s access of the Services. Except as otherwise agreed in writing, the modified version will become effective upon posting, and by continuing to use the Services, Customer agrees to be bound by the modified version.
During the Term and for a period of 5 years after the expiration or earlier termination of the Term, neither Party, as a receiving Party, shall disclose any Confidential Information of the other Party, as a disclosing party, except to its personnel and subcontractors who need to know such Confidential Information in order for the receiving Party to exercise its rights or perform its obligations under the Agreement. The receiving Party shall protect such Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access or disclosure using at least the degree of care it uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event less than reasonable care. The receiving Party’s confidentiality obligation with respect to the Confidential Information of the disclosing Party shall not extend to the extent such information: (a) is in the public domain at the time of its disclosure; (b) was rightfully known by the receiving Party without restriction prior to being disclosed to the receiving Party in connection with the Agreement; (c) was independently developed by the receiving Party without reference to or use of any Confidential Information of the disclosing Party. The foregoing restrictions on disclosure shall not apply to the extent Confidential Information is required to be disclosed pursuant to a court order or governmental authority; provided that the receiving Party promptly notify the disclosing Party and provide reasonable assistance to the disclosing Party in opposing such disclosure or seeking a protective order or other limitation on the disclosure. Upon any expiration or termination of the Agreement the receiving Party shall promptly return to the disclosing Party or destroy such other Party’s Confidential Information. This Section shall supersede all prior confidentiality agreements between the Parties.

- Equitable Remedies. Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provision, each Party acknowledges that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under the Agreement relating to Confidential Information or Intellectual Property Rights would give rise to irreparable harm to the other Party for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy. In the event of a breach or a threatened breach of any such obligations, the other Party shall, in addition to any and all other available rights and remedies, be entitled to equitable relief, including a temporary restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from a court of competent jurisdiction, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, and without any requirement to prove actual damages or that monetary damages will not afford an adequate remedy.
