4.4      All amounts due from you to us shall be paid in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).

6.2      In accordance with applicable Data Protection, the signatory of this agreement on behalf of the Client and its personnel involved in the execution of the agreement (the “Individuals of Client “) are informed that we will process their personal data as data controller, and that the failure to provide the personal data requested by us could result in the impossibility of executing or maintaining this agreement.

6.3      The purpose of processing of personal data of the Individuals of the Client is the execution, maintenance, development and control of the terms of this agreement, which constitutes the legal basis to process the personal data.

6.4      The personal data of the Individuals of the Client may be used by us for internal administrative purposes and marketing, both based on legitimate interest as well as with third parties for the fulfilment of legal obligations.

6.5      Upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason, the personal data of the Individuals of the Client will be retained until the end of the statutes of limitation of any liabilities that may arise from the contractual relationship as well as to comply with legal obligations. 

6.6      If at any time during the term of this agreement, you provide us with personal data, and this is not considered as Individuals of the Client, but rather, requires processing by us as part of the Services, then in such a scenario for the purposes of Data Protection Legislation, you are the data controller and we are the data processor. 

6.7      Where 6.6 applies:

6.7.1        you will ensure that you have all necessary consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of the personal data to us for the duration and purpose of this agreement; 6.7.2        we and/or our subcontractors will only process this personal data in accordance with your reasonable written instruction.
