And

Velostrata Ltd., c/o Google Israel, 98 Yigal Alon street, Tel Aviv 6789141, Israel

(the "Data Importer")

each a "party"; together "the parties",

HAVE AGREED on the following Contractual Clauses (the "Clauses") in order to adduce adequate safeguards with respect to the protection of privacy and fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals for the transfer by the Data Exporter to the Data Importer of the personal data specified in Attachment 1.

The Clauses (including Attachments 1 and 2) are effective from the date the Data Exporter has both reviewed and accepted the Velostrata End User Service Agreement with Data Processing and Security Terms (collectively the "Services Agreement") and these Clauses which are incorporated by reference to the Service Agreement. In this document: (a) "Velostrata End User Service Agreement" means an agreement under which the Data Importer, Velostrata Ltd., or any other entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with the Data Importer, has agreed to provide Velostrata services and products and related support to Data Exporter (whether as a customer, reseller or supplier); and (b) "Data Processing and Security Terms" means terms incorporated by reference into the Velostrata End User Service Agreement or otherwise subsequently agreed between the parties to that agreement that set out certain terms in relation to the protection and processing of personal data.

If you are accepting on behalf of the Data Exporter, you represent and warrant that: (i) you have full legal authority to bind your employer, or the applicable entity, to these terms and conditions; (ii) you have read and understand the Clauses; and (iii) you agree, on behalf of the party that you represent, to the Clauses. If you do not have the legal authority to bind the Data Exporter, please do not accept these terms. The Clauses shall automatically expire on the termination or expiry of the Data Processing and Security Terms. The parties agree that where Data Exporter has been presented with these Clauses and accepted these terms electronically, such acceptance shall constitute execution of the entirety of the Clauses by both parties, subject to the effective date described above.

Clause 1

Definitions

For the purposes of the Clauses:

(a) 'personal data', 'special categories of data', 'process/processing', 'controller', 'processor', 'Data Subject' and 'Supervisory Authority' shall have the same meaning as in Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data;

(b) 'the Data Exporter' means the controller who transfers the personal data;

(c) 'the Data Importer' means the processor who agrees to receive from the Data Exporter personal data intended for processing on his behalf after the transfer in accordance with his instructions and the terms of the Clauses and who is not subject to a third country's system ensuring adequate protection within the meaning of Article 25 (1) of Directive 95/46/EC;

(d) 'the Subprocessor' means any processor engaged by the Data Importer or by any other subprocessor of the Data Importer who agrees to receive from the Data Importer or from any other subprocessor of the Data Importer personal data exclusively intended for processing activities to be carried out on behalf of the Data Exporter after the transfer in accordance with his instructions, the terms of the Clauses and the terms of the written subcontract;

(e) 'the applicable data protection law' means the legislation protecting the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals and, in particular, their right to privacy with respect to the processing of personal data applicable to a data controller in the Member State in which the Data Exporter is established;

(f) 'technical and organisational security measures' means those measures aimed at protecting personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, in particular where the processing involves the transmission of data over a network, and against all other unlawful forms of processing.

Clause 2

Details of the transfer

The details of the transfer and in particular the special categories of personal data where applicable are specified in Attachment 1 which forms an integral part of the Clauses.

Clause 3

Third-party beneficiary clause

  1. The Data Subject can enforce against the Data Exporter this Clause, Clause 4(b) to (i), Clause 5(a) to (e), and (g) to (j), Clause 6(1) and (2), Clause 7, Clause 8(2), and Clauses 9 to 12 as third-party beneficiary.

  2. The Data Subject can enforce against the Data Importer this Clause, Clause 5(a) to (e) and (g), Clause 6, Clause 7, Clause 8(2), and Clauses 9 to 12, in cases where the Data Exporter has factually disappeared or has ceased to exist in law unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the Data Exporter by contract or by operation of law, as a result of which it takes on the rights and obligations of the Data Exporter, in which case the Data Subject can enforce them against such entity.

  3. The Data Subject can enforce against the Subprocessor this Clause, Clause 5(a) to (e) and (g), Clause 6, Clause 7, Clause 8(2), and Clauses 9 to 12, in cases where both the Data Exporter and the Data Importer have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the Data Exporter by contract or by operation of law as a result of which it takes on the rights and obligations of the Data Exporter, in which case the Data Subject can enforce them against such entity. Such third-party liability of the Subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.

  4. The parties do not object to a Data Subject being represented by an association or other body if the Data Subject so expressly wishes and if permitted by national law.

Clause 4

Obligations of the Data Exporter

The Data Exporter agrees and warrants:

(a) that the processing, including the transfer itself, of the personal data has been and will continue to be carried out in accordance with the relevant provisions of the applicable data protection law (and, where applicable, has been notified to the relevant authorities of the Member State where the Data Exporter is established) and does not violate the relevant provisions of that State;

(b) that it has instructed and throughout the duration of the personal data processing services will instruct the data importer to process the personal data transferred only on the Data Exporter's behalf and in accordance with the applicable data protection law and the Clauses;

(e) that it will ensure compliance with the security measures;

(f) that, if the transfer involves special categories of data, the Data Subject has been informed or will be informed before, or as soon as possible after, the transfer that its data could be transmitted to a third country not providing adequate protection within the meaning of Directive 95/46/EC;

(g) to forward any notification received from the data importer or any Subprocessor pursuant to Clause 5(b) and Clause 8(3) to the data protection supervisory authority if the Data Exporter decides to continue the transfer or to lift the suspension;

(h) to make available to the Data Subjects upon request a copy of the Clauses, with the exception of Attachment 2, and a summary description of the security measures, as well as a copy of any contract for sub-processing services which has to be made in accordance with the Clauses, unless the Clauses or the contract contain commercial information, in which case it may remove such commercial information;

(i) that, in the event of sub-processing, the processing activity is carried out in accordance with Clause 11 by a Subprocessor providing at least the same level of protection for the personal data and the rights of Data Subject as the Data Importer under the Clauses; and

(b) that it has no reason to believe that the legislation applicable to it prevents it from fulfilling the instructions received from the Data Exporter and its obligations under the contract and that in the event of a change in this legislation which is likely to have a substantial adverse effect on the warranties and obligations provided by the Clauses, it will promptly notify the change to the Data Exporter as soon as it is aware, in which case the Data Exporter is entitled to suspend the transfer of data and/or terminate the contract;

(c) that it has implemented the technical and organisational security measures specified in Attachment 2 before processing the personal data transferred;

(d) that it will promptly notify the Data Exporter about:

(i) any legally binding request for disclosure of the personal data by a law enforcement authority unless otherwise prohibited, such as a prohibition under criminal law to preserve the confidentiality of a law enforcement investigation;

(ii) any accidental or unauthorised access; and

(iii) any request received directly from the Data Subjects without responding to that request, unless it has been otherwise authorised to do so;

Clause 6

Liability

  1. The parties agree that any Data Subject, who has suffered damage as a result of any breach of the obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 by any party or Subprocessor is entitled to receive compensation from the Data Exporter for the damage suffered.

  2. If a Data Subject is not able to bring a claim for compensation in accordance with paragraph 1 against the Data Exporter, arising out of a breach by the Data Importer or his Subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11, because the Data Exporter has factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent, the Data Importer agrees that the Data Subject may issue a claim against the Data Importer as if it were the Data Exporter, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the Data Exporter by contract or by operation of law, in which case the Data Subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The Data Importer may not rely on a breach by a Subprocessor of its obligations in order to avoid its own liabilities.

  3. If a Data Subject is not able to bring a claim against the Data Exporter or the Data Importer referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2, arising out of a breach by the Subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 because both the Data Exporter and the Data Importer have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, the Subprocessor agrees that the Data Subject may issue a claim against the data Subprocessor with regard to its own processing operations under the Clauses as if it were the Data Exporter or the Data Importer, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the Data Exporter or Data Importer by contract or by operation of law, in which case the Data Subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The liability of the Subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.

Clause 7

Mediation and jurisdiction

  1. The Data Importer agrees that if the Data Subject invokes against it third-party beneficiary rights and/or claims compensation for damages under the Clauses, the Data Importer will accept the decision of the Data Subject:

    (a)to refer the dispute to mediation, by an independent person or, where applicable, by the supervisory authority; (b)to refer the dispute to the courts in the Member State in which the Data Exporter is established.

  2. The parties agree that the choice made by the Data Subject will not prejudice its substantive or procedural rights to seek remedies in accordance with other provisions of national or international law.

Clause 8

Cooperation with supervisory authorities

  1. The Data Exporter agrees to deposit a copy of this contract with the supervisory authority if it so requests or if such deposit is required under the applicable data protection law.

  2. The parties agree that the supervisory authority has the right to conduct an audit of the Data Importer, and of any Subprocessor, which has the same scope and is subject to the same conditions as would apply to an audit of the Data Exporter under the applicable data protection law.

  3. The Data Importer shall promptly inform the Data Exporter about the existence of legislation applicable to it or any Subprocessor preventing the conduct of an audit of the Data Importer, or any Subprocessor, pursuant to paragraph 2. In such a case the Data Exporter shall be entitled to take the measures foreseen in Clause 5(b).

Clause 9

Governing Law

The Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the Data Exporter is established.

Clause 10

Variation of the contract

The parties undertake not to vary or modify the Clauses. This does not preclude the parties from adding clauses on business related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Clause.

Clause 11

Sub-Processing

  1. The Data Importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the Data Exporter under the Clauses without the prior written consent of the Data Exporter. Where the Data Importer subcontracts its obligations under the Clauses, with the consent of the Data Exporter, it shall do so only by way of a written agreement with the Subprocessor which imposes the same obligations on the Subprocessor as are imposed on the Data Importer under the Clauses. Where the Subprocessor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations under such written agreement the Data Importer shall remain fully liable to the Data Exporter for the performance of the Subprocessor's obligations under such agreement.

  2. The prior written contract between the Data Importer and the Subprocessor shall also provide for a third-party beneficiary clause as laid down in Clause 3 for cases where the Data Subject is not able to bring the claim for compensation referred to in paragraph 1 of Clause 6 against the Data Exporter or the Data Importer because they have factually disappeared or have ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent and no successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the Data Exporter or Data Importer by contract or by operation of law. Such third-party liability of the Subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Clauses.

  3. The provisions relating to data protection aspects for sub-processing of the contract referred to in paragraph 1 shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the Data Exporter is established.

  4. The Data Exporter shall keep a list of sub-processing agreements concluded under the Clauses and notified by the Data Importer pursuant to Clause 5(j), which shall be updated at least once a year. The list shall be available to the Data Exporter's data protection supervisory authority.

Clause 12

Obligation after the termination of personal data processing services

  1. The parties agree that on the termination of the provision of data processing services, the Data Importer and the Subprocessor shall, at the choice of the Data Exporter, return all the personal data transferred and the copies thereof to the Data Exporter or shall destroy all the personal data and certify to the Data Exporter that it has done so, unless legislation imposed upon the Data Importer prevents it from returning or destroying all or part of the personal data transferred. In that case, the Data Importer warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data transferred and will not actively process the personal data transferred anymore.

  2. The Data Importer and the Subprocessor warrant that upon request of the Data Exporter and/or of the supervisory authority, it will submit its data processing facilities for an audit of the measures referred to in paragraph 1.
