Sub-processors and Subcontractors

CafeX Communications, Inc. (“CafeX”) uses certain sub-processors, subcontractors and content delivery networks to assist it in providing the CafeX Services as described in the Terms of Service (“TOS”). Defined terms used herein shall have the same meaning as defined in the TOS.

What is a Sub-processor?

A sub-processor is a third-party data processor engaged by CafeX, who has or potentially will have access to or process Service Data (which may contain Personal Data). CafeX engages different types of sub-processors to perform various functions as explained in the tables below. CafeX refers to third parties that do not have access to or process Service Data but who are otherwise used to provide the Services as “subcontractors” and not sub-processors.

Due Diligence

CafeX undertakes to use a commercially reasonable selection process by which it evaluates the security, privacy and confidentiality practices of proposed sub-processors that will or may have access to or process Service Data.

Contractual Safeguards

CafeX execute an agreement with our SubProcessors, including but not limited to the requirements to:

  • Restrict the Subprocessors’ access to Customer Data only to what is necessary to assist CafeX in providing or maintaining the Services, and prohibit the Subprocessor from accessing Customer Data for any other purpose
  • In connection with their sub-processing activities, use only personnel who are reliable and subject to a contractually binding obligation to observe data privacy and security, to the extent applicable, pursuant to applicable data protection laws
  • Make clear that CafeX will remain responsible for its compliance with the obligations of any applicable agreements between us and Customer and for any acts or omissions of the Subprocessor that cause Duo to breach any of its obligations under those agreements
  • Implement and maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures (including measures consistent with those to which CafeX is contractually committed to adhere to insofar as they are equally relevant to the sub-processor’s processing of Personal Data on CafeX’s behalf) and provide an annual certification that evidences compliance with this obligation. In the absence of such certification CafeX reserves the right to audit the sub-processor
  • Promptly inform CafeX about any actual or potential security breach and cooperate with CafeX in order to deal with requests from data controllers, data subjects or data protection authorities, as applicable
