- “Standard Contractual Clauses” (or “EU SCCs”) refers to the clauses issued pursuant to the EU Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council, available at http://data.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj completed as set out below in Section 8.
Scope and Purposes of Processing.
- Customer directs PagerDuty, and PagerDuty agrees, to Process Customer Personal Data solely: (1) on Customer’s behalf; (2) in accordance with Customer’s written instructions, as may be provided by Customer to PagerDuty from time to time; (3) for the limited and specified business purpose(s) of providing the Services as described in the Agreement, including this Addendum and any Order Form and for no other commercial purpose; or (4) as otherwise permitted by Data Privacy Laws.
- If a Data Privacy Law to which PagerDuty is subject requires PagerDuty to Process Customer Personal Data in a manner that conflicts with an instruction provided by Customer, PagerDuty will inform Customer of that legal requirement before Processing, unless that law prohibits PagerDuty from providing such information on important grounds of public interest within the meaning of Data Privacy Laws.
Customer Personal Data Processing. PagerDuty will:
- Ensure that the persons it authorizes to Process the Customer Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
- Taking into account the nature of the Processing, assist Customer by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfillment of Customer’s obligation to respond to a verifiable request by a Data Subject (or their lawful representatives) under Data Privacy Laws (such as rights to access or delete Customer Personal Data). In addition, to the extent Customer, in its use of the Services, does not have the ability to address such verifiable request, PagerDuty shall upon written request of Customer, use commercially reasonable efforts to assist or cause any applicable subprocessor to assist, Customer in the fulfillment of Customer’s obligations to respond to such requests, to the extent PagerDuty or the subprocessor is legally permitted to do so and the response to the verifiable request is required under Data Privacy Laws. To the extent legally permitted, Customer shall be responsible for PagerDuty’s provision of such assistance, including any fees associated with the provision of additional functionality.
- Promptly notify Customer of (i) any third-party or Data Subject complaints regarding the Processing of Customer Personal Data; (ii) any Data Subject requests for exercising their rights under Data Privacy Laws; or (iii) any government or Data Subject requests for access to or information about PagerDuty’s Processing of Customer Personal Data on Customer’s behalf, unless prohibited by Data Privacy Laws. PagerDuty will provide Customer with reasonable cooperation and assistance in relation to any such request.
- Provide reasonable assistance to and cooperation with Customer for Customer’s performance of a data protection impact assessment of Processing or proposed Processing of Customer Personal Data, when required by Data Privacy Laws.
- PagerDuty’s Subprocessors. A list of subprocessors for the Services as of the Effective Date is located at https://www.pagerduty.com/subprocessors/. Customer has instructed or authorized the use of subprocessors to assist PagerDuty with respect to the performance of PagerDuty’s obligations under the Agreement. Customer acknowledges and agrees that PagerDuty may engage third-party subprocessors to assist PagerDuty in providing or maintaining the Services provided under the Agreement. PagerDuty shall maintain an updated list of subprocessors and Customer may receive notification of changes to the published list of subprocessors by subscribing to the published RSS feed. To the extent that Customer objects to any new subprocessor, PagerDuty will address such objection in accordance with applicable law.
- Liability for Subprocessors. PagerDuty shall enter into written agreements that include subprocessor obligations to comply with Data Privacy Laws and will be liable for the acts and omissions of its subprocessors to the same extent PagerDuty would be liable if performing the services of each subprocessor directly under the terms of this DPA, except as otherwise set forth in the Agreement.
- Objections to Subprocessors. If PagerDuty processes Customer Personal Data of residents in the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, or Switzerland on Customer’s behalf, in order to exercise its right to object to PagerDuty’s use of a new subprocessor, Customer shall notify PagerDuty promptly in writing within thirty (30) business days after PagerDuty’s updated list of subprocessors has been made available. In the event Customer objects to a new subprocessor pursuant to this subprovision, and that objection is not unreasonable, PagerDuty will use reasonable efforts to make available to Customer a change in the Services or recommend a commercially reasonable change to Customer’s configuration or use of the Services to avoid Processing of Customer Personal Data by the objected-to new subprocessor without unreasonably burdening the Customer. If PagerDuty is unable to make available either type of change within a reasonable time period, which shall not exceed thirty (30) days, Customer may terminate the applicable Order Form(s) with respect only to those aspects of the Services which cannot be provided by PagerDuty without the use of the objected-to new subprocessor by providing written notice to PagerDuty.
- Copies of Subprocessor Agreements. The parties agree that the copies of the subprocessor agreements that must be sent by PagerDuty to Customer pursuant to the Standard Contractual Clauses (where applicable) may have all commercial information, or clauses unrelated to the Standard Contractual Clauses or their equivalent, removed by PagerDuty beforehand; and, that such copies will be provided by PagerDuty only upon reasonable request by Customer.
PagerDuty will use appropriate administrative, technical, physical, and organizational measures to protect Customer Personal Data, as set forth in Exhibit B. PagerDuty regularly monitors compliance with these measures. PagerDuty will not materially decrease the overall security of the Services during Customer’s subscription term
Security Breach Management and Notification
PagerDuty maintains a security incident management procedure and shall, to the extent required under the applicable Data Privacy Law, notify Customer of any Security Breach by PagerDuty or its subprocessors of which PagerDuty becomes aware without undue delay. Customer shall be responsible for notifying Data Subjects affected by a Security Breach unless Customer and PagerDuty make other arrangements. PagerDuty shall make reasonable endeavors to identify and remediate the cause of such Security Breach and to notify Customer no later than seventy-two (72) hours after PagerDuty’s discovery and full remediation unless otherwise required by applicable Data Privacy Law. The notification will include the following information, to the extent known by PagerDuty: (i) the nature of the Security Breach, including, where possible, the categories and approximate number of Data Subjects concerned, and the categories and approximate number of Customer Personal Data records concerned; and (ii) measures taken or proposed to be taken by PagerDuty to address the Security Breach, including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects. Where, and in so far as, it is not possible to provide the information at the same time, the information may be provided in phases without undue further delay.
Deletion of Customer Personal Data
PagerDuty shall, upon Customer’s request and subject to the limitations described in the Agreement, delete Customer Personal Data in accordance with the procedures and timeframes specified in the Agreement, and upon Customer’s request will provide written certification of the deletion.
- PagerDuty shall ensure that international transfers are in compliance with all Data Privacy Laws. Where PagerDuty engages in an onward transfer of Customer Personal Data, PagerDuty shall ensure that a lawful data transfer mechanism is in place prior to transferring Customer Personal Data from one country to another.

Switzerland. For transfers of Personal Data that are subject to
the FADP, the EU SCCs form part of this DPA as set forth in Section
8.2 of this DPA, but with the following differences to the extent
required by the FADP:
- References to the GDPR in the EU SCCs are to be understood as references to the FADP insofar as the data transfers are subject exclusively to the FADP and not to the GDPR.
- The term “member state” in the EU SCCs shall not be interpreted in such a way as to exclude data subjects in Switzerland from the possibility of suing for their rights in their place of habitual residence (Switzerland) in accordance with Clause 18(c) of the EU SCCs.
- References to Personal Data in the EU SCCs also refer to data about identifiable legal entities until the entry into force of revisions to the FADP that eliminate this broader scope.
Under Annex I(C) of the EU SCCs (Competent supervisory authority):
8.4.d.1Where the transfer is subject exclusively to the FADP and not the GDPR, the supervisory authority is the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner.8.4.d.2Where the transfer is subject to both the FADP and the GDPR, the supervisory authority is the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner insofar as the transfer is governed by the FADP, and the supervisory authority is as set forth in Section 8.2(h) of this DPA insofar as the transfer is governed by the GDPR.
- To the extent the EU SCCs apply, nothing in this DPA or the Agreement shall be construed to prevail over any conflicting clause of the EU SCCs. Each party acknowledges that it has had the opportunity to review the EU SCCs.
- Changes in Laws. If the transfer of Customer Personal Data under the SCCs or other lawful data transfer mechanism, approved by the relevant data protection authority, ceases to be lawful or the additional safeguards are no longer effective, PagerDuty may, at its discretion: (a) cease transfers of the Customer Personal Data to, or access to such Customer Personal Data from, the relevant jurisdictions; or (b) promptly cooperate with Customer to facilitate use of an alternative lawful data transfer mechanism and alternative additional safeguards that will permit Customer to continue to benefit from the Services in compliance with Data Privacy Laws relating to the protection of Customer Personal Data. If Customer and PagerDuty are unable to promptly implement such an alternative data transfer mechanism or alternative additional safeguards, then Customer may, at its option, upon written notice to PagerDuty suspend the transfer or reduce the scope of the Services to exclude the Customer Personal Data.

- Following any notice by PagerDuty to Customer of a Security Breach, upon Customer’s reasonable belief that PagerDuty is in breach of its obligations in respect of protection of Customer Personal Data under this DPA, or if such audit is required by Customer’s supervisory authority, Customer may contact PagerDuty in accordance with the notice procedure described in the Agreement to request an on-site audit of PagerDuty’s procedures relevant to the protection of Customer Personal Data, but only to the extent required under Data Privacy Laws. Any such request shall occur no more than once annually. Customer shall reimburse PagerDuty for any time expended for any such on-site audit at PagerDuty’s then-current professional services rates, which shall be made available to Customer upon request.
