These measures are aimed at ensuring that Supply Partner Personal Data is reasonably protected against accidental or unauthorized destruction, accidental loss, as well as against unauthorized alteration of, disclosure of and access to Supply Partner Personal Data – all as specified at DT.com/securitypolicy (the “Data Security Addendum”).
- To the extent that the technical and organizational measures taken by DT do not meet mandatory requirements, as set forth under Data Protection Laws which are applicable to Supply Partner, Supply Partner must notify DT in written or in text form thereof prior to the start of any Processing of Supply Partner Personal Data. In that case, both parties will negotiate in good faith an adjustment of the technical and organizational measures and the compensation for those required adjustments.

Should Supply Partner be obligated to provide information to any Data Subject or third party regarding the Process of Supply Partner Personal Data by DT, DT will use commercially reasonable efforts to support Supply Partner in the provision of such information. Supply Partner acknowledges that as DT does not Process specific unique identifiers such as name, photo ID, government issued ID, email address and telephone number, DT’s ability to identify Personal Data related to a specific Data Subject is limited and Supply Partner may need to furnish DT, and potentially request the Data Subject who invoked the right to exercise rights, to furnish, additional details, as necessary to enable DT to assist with the request.
- To the extent necessary, DT will provide Supply Partner reasonable assistance, at Supply Partner’s expense, with any data protection impact assessments, and prior consultations with Supervising Authorities, which Supply Partner reasonably considers to be required by Data Protection Laws, in each case solely in relation to Processing of Supply Partner Personal Data and considering the nature of the Processing and information available to DT.

Accordingly, if a refusal signal was transmitted in relation to any specific Data Subject, DT will not Process Supply Partner Personal Data related to the relevant Data Subject for targeted advertising purposes and will only use and share such Supply Partner Personal Data for the limited permissible uses under the applicable Data Protection Laws, including for invoicing, attribution and reporting purposes.

- Supply Partner hereby acknowledges and agrees that DT is under no obligation or ability to check and confirm the accuracy of the signals and transitions from Supply Partner regarding its mobile application’s users, and it will therefore assume no responsibility and liability for any false transmission or failure to transmit to DT with accurate opt-in or opt-out signals.

- DT will inform Supply Partner of DT’s engagement with a new Sub-Processor. Supply Partner may object to the use of new or additional Sub-Processor by sending DT a written notice within five (5) business days of receipt of said notice.

Capitalized terms used in this Addendum will have the meaning ascribed to them in the MSA unless otherwise defined herein.
1. Interpretation of “Warranty”
For the avoidance of doubt, the parties agree that the words “to represent/representation”, “to warrant/warranty” shall be understood as referring to an ordinary German law contractual representation (Zusicherung) and not to a German law guarantee with strict liability (Garantie).
2. Tax and VAT
Any legally owed German VAT for services supplied by Supply Partner in Germany shall be added to the due amounts in the respective statutory amount.
3. Disclaimers; Limitation of Liability
3.1. Section 7.1 of the MSA shall be deleted and replaced with the following:

If the Non-availability of Service has continued for two (2) weeks, Fyber may terminate the Agreement upon written notice to Supply Partner with immediate effect. It is also deemed a case of Non availability of Service within the meaning of the above sentence in case the timely provision of the Service(s) is prevented through force majeure, i.e., events which cannot be reasonably foreseen and averted by taking reasonable precautions by Fyber, such as war, acts of terrorism, internal unrest, forces of nature, sabotage, and attacks by third parties, strikes in areas for the functioning of which Fyber is not responsible and failure of communications networks or systems of a third party for which Fyber is not responsible (this also applies when such a case of force majeure occurs at one of Fyber’s subcontractors or suppliers). Statutory rights of termination of each party in the case of such Non-availability of Service remain unaffected.
3.2. Section 7.2 of the MSA shall be deleted and replaced with the following:
7.2.1 Subject to Section 7.2.2, Fyber shall be liable for damages and futile expenses caused to or incurred by Supply Partner (collectively the “Damages”) pursuant to applicable statutory law.

7.2.4 Notwithstanding Section 7.2.2, nothing in the Agreement shall limit Fyber’s liability for Damages arising from death or personal injury, from breach of a contractual guarantee as to the quality of goods or services or, in case of any other liability pursuant to applicable mandatory law, where such liability cannot be excluded or limited by agreement between the parties in advance (e.g., under sec. 1 of the German Product Liability Act).
7.2.5 The above limitations to liability also apply to the liability of employees, executive officers, legal representatives and vicarious agents of Fyber.”
4. Modifications to the MSA
4.1. Fyber reserves the right to change or amend the MSA at any time effective prospectively. Any change or amendment will be notified to Supply Partner in a suitable manner (including but not limited to by email or by display of the notice in the Account) at least four (4) weeks prior to its effective date.

4.3. In its notification, Fyber will inform Supply Partner of Supply Partner’s right to object within two (2) weeks, both party’s right to terminate the Agreement in case of objection, and the legal consequences of non-objection.
Section 11.7 of the MSA shall be deleted and replaced with the following:
“11.5 Arbitration. All disputes between the parties arising out of or relating to the Agreement, including any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with it, shall be finally settled in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS) without recourse to the ordinary courts of law.
