Recharge may update the security measures from time to time, provided the updated measures do not materially decrease the overall protection of Personal Data;

2.2.6. provide you, upon your written request, with up-to-date attestations, reports or extracts thereof, where available, from a source charged with auditing Recharge’s data protection practices (e.g. external auditors, internal audit, data protection auditors), or suitable certifications, to enable you to assess compliance with the terms of this Addendum;

2.3. In the course of providing the Service, you acknowledge and agree that Recharge may use Subprocessors to Process the Personal Data.

If Recharge’s compliance with Data Protection Legislation applicable to International Data Transfers is affected by circumstances outside of Recharge’s control, including if a legal instrument for International Data Transfers is invalidated, amended, or replaced, then Customer and Recharge will work together in good faith to reasonably resolve such non-compliance.

2.5  Customer acknowledges and agrees that Recharge may create and derive from Processing related to the Agreement, deidentified, anonymized and/or aggregated data that does not identify Customer or any natural person and use, publicize, or share with third parties such data to improve Recharge’s products and services and for its other legitimate business purposes.
