      3. Service Provider shall process the Personal Data as a processor as necessary to perform its obligations as defined under this Agreement and strictly in accordance with the documented instructions of the Client, except where otherwise required by any law applicable to the Service Provider. If the Service Provider processes the Personal Data for its own purposes, he will process the Personal Data as a Controller.
      4. Service Provider shall not transfer the Personal Data (nor permit the Personal Data to be transferred) outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) unless (i) certain set conditions are met (such as an adequacy decision by the European Commission, or that appropriate safeguards are in place as per the legislation) or (ii.) it has first obtained the Client’s prior written consent.
      5.

Upon termination or expiry of this Agreement or retention period, the Service Provider shall at the Client’s election destroy or return to the Client all Personal Data (including all copies) in its possession or control (including any Personal Data subcontracted to a third party for processing). This requirement shall not apply to certain Personal Data where the Service Provider also processes them in its capacity as Controller or is required by any EU (or any EU Member State) law to retain some or all of the Personal Data, in which event the Service Provider shall isolate and protect the Personal Data from any further processing except to the extent required by such law.
      12. The service Provider makes available to the controller all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations laid down in this Clause.

    1. If a provision of this Agreement is found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, that prohibition or unenforceability shall not invalidate the remaining provisions thereof which will remain in full force and effect. The Parties agree to attempt to substitute for any invalid or unenforceable provision a valid and enforceable provision that achieves to the greatest extent possible the same effect as would have been achieved by the invalid or unenforceable provision. The obligations of the Parties under any invalid or unenforceable provision of the Agreement will be suspended while an attempt at substitution is made.
    2. Any failure or delay by a Party in exercising any right under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of its rights under this Agreement or preclude the further exercise of any such rights unless waived in writing.

    1. The validity, interpretation and/or execution of the Agreement are entirely and exclusively subject to Belgian law, to the maximum extent permitted by the prevailing rules of private international law.
    2. The Parties irrevocably agree that the Courts of Brussels (Belgium) have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim that arises out of or in connection with this Agreement.
