This GDPR Addendum (“GDPR Addendum”) supplements the information contained in the Privacy Notice (the “Privacy Notice”). We adopt this GDPR Addendum to comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679, or GDPR.

Capitalized terms used but not defined in this GDPR Addendum have the definitions assigned to them in the Privacy Notice.
In this GDPR Addendum, we use the terms “Personal Data”, “Data Controller” and “Processing” as they are defined in the GDPR.

For purposes of the GDPR, Quadicore acts as the Data Controller of your Personal Data that you provide to us. However, we also process certain Personal Data of your customers or contacts in connection with our provision of services to you. In these cases, we process the Personal Data of your customers and contacts on your behalf. If we receive inquiries about Processing Personal Data from your customers or contacts, we will direct such inquiries to you as the Data Controller of such Personal Data.

All transfers of Personal Data (i) within the Quadicore corporate family, as further described in the Privacy Notice, and (ii) to third parties, will be under the European Commission’s model contracts for the transfer of Personal Data to third countries (i.e., the standard contractual clauses), pursuant to Decision 2004/915/EC and 2010/87/EU.
Although not currently relied upon as a legal basis for transfer, Quadicore participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (together, the “Frameworks” or the “Privacy Shield Frameworks”). Quadicore is committed to subjecting all Personal Data received from the EEA, UK and Switzerland, respectively, in accordance with each Privacy Shield Framework, and to the Framework’s applicable Principles.

With respect to Personal Data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, Quadicore is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the Indian MSME. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
