- Obligations of Customer. Customer shall do all of the following:

b. inform MJH of any consumer request made pursuant to the Privacy Regulations that MJH must comply with, and provide to MJH the information necessary for MJH to comply with the request; and
c. process and retain Consumer data only in accordance with Customer’s data retention policy and other privacy policies.
- Rights of Customer. Customer shall have the right to do the following:
a. take reasonable and appropriate steps to help ensure that MJH uses the Personal Information that it received from, or on behalf of, Customer in a manner consistent with Customer’s obligations under the Privacy Regulations and this Addendum;
b. take reasonable and appropriate steps, upon notice, to stop and remediate MJH’s unauthorized use of Personal Information; and
c. make changes to this Addendum as may be necessary for Customer to comply with the Privacy Regulations.
MJH certifies that it understands its obligations under this Addendum and the Privacy Regulations and will comply with them. Notwithstanding anything in the Services Agreement or other document, the Parties acknowledge and agree that Customer’s provision of access to Personal Information is not part of and is explicitly excluded from the exchange of consideration, or any other thing of value, between the Parties.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, and intending to be legally bound, the Parties have caused this Addendum to be executed by their duly authorized representatives.
