By incorporating the ten principles of the un global compact into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, companies are not only upholding their basic responsibilities to people and planet, but also setting the stage for long-term success. The ten principles of the united nations global compact are derived from: the universal declaration of human rights, the international labour organizations declaration on fundamental principles and rights at work, the rio declaration on environment and development, and the united nations convention against corruption.

TOOL partners & members should ensure and strive for delivering on the 10 principles.

Labour principle 3: businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;

principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;

principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and

principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation. Environment principle 7: businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;

principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.

i) immediately notify the controller if the processor receives a request from an authority to disclose personal data processed under this dpa. The processor is not obliged to notify if the law prohibits such notification. Unless required by law, the processor shall not comply with such a request without prior written approval from the controller;

j) assist the controller in responding to requests from the data subjects pursuant to chapter iii of the gdpr (including the right to information, access, correction and erasure); and

k) assist the controller in fulfilling its duties pursuant to article 32-36 of the gdpr.

The scope of the processors duty to provide assistance to the controller under j) and k) shall take the nature of the processing and the information available to the processor into account.

5 the controllers duties

the controller is responsible for ensuring that the processing of personal data complies with the requirements set out in norwegian data protection legislation and the gdpr, hereunder ensuring that the processing of personal data, which the processor is instructed to perform, has a legal basis.

The controller has the right and obligation to determine the purpose and means of processing. The controller shall provide the processor with documented instructions on how the personal data should be processed.

6 notification routines

in the event of a personal data breach, the processor shall notify the controller without undue delay. The notification shall at least describe:

the nature of the breach of personal data, including, if possible, the categories and approximate number of data subjects concerned, and the categories and approximate number of personal data records concerned;

the name and contact information of the data protection officer or other contact where further information can be obtained;

the likely consequences of the personal data breach;

the measures taken or proposed to be taken to address the personal data breach, including any measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects.

If the processor is unable to provide all the information above in the first notice, the information shall be provided without undue delay and no later than 72 hours after the occurrence of the personal data breach. The controller shall ensure that an incident report is sent to the relevant data protection authority in accordance with article 33 of the gdpr.

7 use of sub-processors

the processor has the right to use the following sub-processors:

- clickup

- github

- google cloud

- google suite

- hubspot

- intercom

- slack

- stripe

- indykite

in addition, the controller hereby grants a general authorization for the processor to use sub-processors. The processor shall inform the controller before replacing existing sub-processors or adding new sub-processors, and the controller shall have the right to object to such changes. The controller may not reject a new sub-processor without a legitimate reason.

A well-founded suspicion that the level of data protection could be degraded as a result of the change of sub-processor, shall be regarded as a legitimate reason. If the sub-processor does not fulfil its data protection obligations, the processor shall remain fully liable to the controller as regards the fulfilment of the obligations of the sub-processor. This does not affect the rights of the data subjects under the GDPR in particular those foreseen in article 79 and 82.
