(1) If the data exporter is the processor regulated by the regulation 2016/679, acting on behalf of EU institution or body, relying on these clauses while involving another processor (processing subcontracting) which is not subject to regulation (EU) 2016/679, he shall also ensure compliance with art. 29(4) of the regulation of European Parliament and Council (EU) 2018/1725 dated 23 October 2018 on protection of natural persons with respect to personal data processing by EU institutions, bodies and organizational units and free flow of such data and repealing of regulation (EU) no. 45/2001 and decision no. 1247/2002/EC (Dz.U. L 295 dated 21.11.2018, p. 39) in the scope in which these clauses and obligations concerning data protection, defined in the contract or another legal act concluded between the administrator and the processor under art. 29(3) of the regulation (EU) 2018/1725, are compliant with each other. This shall apply in particular to situations when the administrator and the processor rely on standard contractual clauses contained in decision 2021/915
(2) This shall mean anonymization of the data in such a way so that the data subjects could not be identified under motive 26 of regulation (EU) 2016/679, and so that this process could be irreversible.
(3) In the European Economic Area Agreement (EEA Agreement), extension of internal EU market was provided for to include three EEA countries – Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. EU legislation concerning data protection, including regulation (EU) 2016/679, is covered by EEA Agreement and was included in its Schedule XI. Consequently, any disclosure to a third party located in EEA by the data importer shall not qualify as further transfer for the purpose of these clauses.

EU legislation concerning data protection, including regulation (EU) 2016/679, is covered by EEA Agreement and was included in its Schedule XI. Consequently, any disclosure to a third party located in EEA by the data importer shall not qualify as further transfer for the purpose of these clauses.
(5) See art. 28(4) of regulation EU 2016/679, and in case EU institution or body is the administrator – art. 29(4) of the regulation (EU) 2018/1725.
(6) In the European Economic Area Agreement (EEA Agreement) extension of internal EU market was provided for to include three EEA countries – Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. EU legislation concerning data protection, including regulation EU 2016/679, is covered by EEA Agreement and was included in its Schedule XI. Consequently, any disclosure to a third party located in EEA by the data importer shall not qualify as further transfer for the purpose of these clauses.
(7) This includes the issue whether transfer and further transfer concerns personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political views, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic or biometric data in order to unambiguously identify the natural person or data concerning health or sex life or sexual orientation of such a person or data concerning conviction or prohibited acts.
(8) Processing subcontractor may meet this requirement, acceding to these clauses under a relevant module in accordance with clause 7.
(9) Processing subcontractor may meet this requirement, acceding to these clauses under a relevant module in accordance with clause 7.
(10) This deadline may be prolonged as much as necessary, maximum by two subsequent months due to complex nature of the request or the number of requests. The data importer shall forthwith and duly inform the subject data about each such prolongation.
(11) The data importer may offer a possibility of alternative dispute resolution through an arbitration tribunal only when it has an organizational unit in the country which ratified the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards.
(12) In terms of the influence of such law and procedure on the compliance with these clauses, generally various elements may be taken into consideration. Such elements may include: relevant and documented practical experience related to previous cases of demanding by public bodies to disclose data or lack of such demands, covering sufficiently representative periods of time.
