Insider shall return Customer Data by enabling Customer to export its Customer Data as set forth in the Agreement and shall delete Customer Data, in accordance with this DPA, the Agreement, applicable laws and the Documentation.
8.1 Relationship between Insider and Customer’s Authorized Affiliates. The parties acknowledge and agree that, by executing the Agreement, the Customer enters into this DPA on behalf of itself and, as applicable, in the name and on behalf of its Authorized Affiliates, thereby establishing an independent DPA between Insider and each such Authorized Affiliate, subject to the provisions of the Agreement and this Section 8 and Section 9. Each Authorized Affiliate agrees to be bound by the obligations under this DPA and, to the extent applicable, the Agreement. For sake of clarity, an Authorized Affiliate is not and does not become a party to the Agreement and is only a party to this DPA. All access to and use of the Services by Authorized Affiliates must comply with the terms and conditions of the Agreement and any violation of the terms and conditions of the Agreement by an Authorized Affiliate shall be deemed a violation by Customer.

(i) solely the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall exercise any such right (including any Audit right) or seek any such remedy on behalf of such Affiliate or Authorized Affiliate,
(ii) the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement shall exercise any such rights under this DPA not separately for each Affiliate or Authorized Affiliate individually but in a combined manner for all of its Affiliate and Authorized Affiliates together, and
(iii) when carrying out an on-site Audit, take all reasonable measures to limit any impact on Insider and its Sub- Processors by combining, to the extent reasonably possible, several Audit requests carried out on behalf of different Affiliate and Authorized Affiliates in one single Audit.
For the purpose of this Section 8.3, an Affiliate signing an Order Form with Insider is not deemed “Customer”.
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Each party’s and all of its Affiliates’ liability, taken together in the aggregate, arising out of or related to this DPA, and all DPAs between Authorized Affiliates and Insider, whether in contract, tort or under any other theory of liability, is subject to the ‘Limitation of Liability’ section of the Agreement, and any reference in such section to the liability of a party means the aggregate liability of that party and all of its Affiliates under the Agreement and all DPAs together.

Insider monitors system, user, and file behavior across its infrastructure using a host-based Intrusion Detection System. Intrusion Detection alerts are monitored by the Security and DevOps teams 24/7. Additionally, Insider may analyze data collected by users’ web browsers (e.g., device type, screen resolution, time zone, operating system version, browser type and version, system fonts, installed browser plug-ins, enabled MIME types, etc.) for security purposes, including to detect compromised browsers, to prevent fraudulent authentications, and to ensure that the Insider Services function properly.
Insider’s APIs and Dashboard use strict role-based access controls and user permissioning. Unauthorized web requests and API calls are logged and automatically alert Insider’s engineering team.
7. Security Logs
All Insider systems used in the provision of the Insider Services, including firewalls, routers, network switches, and operating systems log information to their respective system log facility in order to enable security reviews and analysis.
8. System Patching and Configuration Management
Insider patches its servers and rebuilds its entire cloud infrastructure from configuration management systems on a regular basis, which ensures that the latest patches are applied and that we “reset” back to a known, clean state. Insider maintains multiple environments and tests changes in containerized development environments and in live staging environments before making changes to production environments.
9. Vulnerability Management
Insider’s infrastructure and applications are continuously scanned by a Vulnerability Management System. Alerts are monitored by our Security Team and addressed at least monthly by the Insider Security Team. Insider also maintains a list membership to various CVE vulnerability mailing lists. Patches and ‘critical’ and ‘high’ vulnerabilities are remediated no later than 30 days following discovery.
Insider also uses static code analysis tools during the build process (such as Brakeman and bundler-audit) to perform static security analysis.
10. Third-Party Penetration Testing
Insider undergoes a third-party penetration test of the Insider Services on an annual basis.

15. Information Security Incident Management
Insider maintains written and regularly-audited security incident management policies and procedures, including an Incident Response Plan to be enacted in the event of an incident.
16. Data Encryption
The Insider Services use industry-accepted encryption practices to protect Customer Data and communications during transmissions between a customer’s network and the Insider Services, including 256-bit TLS Certificates and 4096-bit RSA public keys at a minimum.
Insider audits the TLS ciphers used in connection with the provision of the Services with third-party security auditors to ensure that anonymous or weak ciphers are not used. These audits also confirm that the Services do not allow client renegotiation, support downgrade attack protection and forward secrecy.
Data shipped to Amazon Web Services is encrypted in transit and at-rest using AES-256 encryption via Amazon’s managed encryption key process.
Where use of the Services requires a customer to provide access to third party services, Insider performs additional encryption of that information.
17. Return and Deletion of Customer Data
The Insider Services allow import, export, and deletion of Customer Data by authorized users at all times during the term of a customer’s subscription. Following termination or expiration of the Services, Insider shall securely overwrite or delete Customer Data within 180 days following any such termination, in accordance with the Agreement, applicable laws and the Documentation.
