10. GENERAL PROVISIONS.
10.1. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement, and supersedes all prior negotiations, understandings or agreements (oral or written), between the parties about the subject matter of this Agreement. Vanta may amend this Agreement from time to time by posting a new version on its website, in which case the new Agreement will supersede prior versions. Vanta will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify MSP prior to the effective date of any such amendment and MSP’s continued use of the Vanta Services following the effective date of any such amendment may be relied upon by Vanta as consent to any such amendment. The failure of either party to enforce its rights under this Agreement at any time for any period will not be construed as a waiver of such rights. Except as specifically provided otherwise, each right and remedy in this Agreement is in addition to any other right or remedy, at law or in equity, and the exercise of one right or remedy will not be deemed a waiver of any other. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is in English only, which language shall be controlling in all respects. No version of this Agreement in another language shall be binding or of any effect.
10.2. ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER – IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS MSP’S LEGAL RIGHTS. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California. MSP AGREES THAT any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration (to be held in English) in accordance with the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof, provided however, that each party will have a right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of law from any court of competent jurisdiction. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT THE PARTIES WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. As an alternative, MSP may bring a claim in MSP’s local “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court's rules and if within such court’s jurisdiction, unless such action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. MSP may bring claims only on MSP’s own behalf. Neither MSP nor Vanta will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. MSP IS GIVING UP MSP’S RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM MSP MAY HAVE AGAINST VANTA INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. MSP also agrees not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's use of the Services if Vanta is a party to the proceeding. The prevailing party will be entitled to receive from the non-prevailing party all costs, damages and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by the prevailing party in connection with that action or proceeding, whether or not the controversy is reduced to judgment or award. The prevailing party will be that party who may be fairly said by the arbitrator(s) to have prevailed on the major disputed issues. MSP hereby consents to the arbitration in San Francisco, California. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with this Agreement. MSP agrees that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Vanta Services or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim of action arose or be forever banned.
10.3. Relief. Each party agrees the non-breaching party will suffer irreparable damage for which it will have no adequate remedy at law if Section 2 (Appointment and Licenses), Section 3 (Limitations and Restrictions), or Section 4 (Confidential Information) is breached. Accordingly, the non-breaching party shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable remedies to stop any such breach or threatened breach, without the necessity of posting any bond.
10.4. Notices. All notices under this Agreement will be in writing, in English and effective when received, and shall be delivered personally or by confirmed facsimile or recognized courier service or certified or registered mail, pre-paid and return receipt requested.
10.5. Assignment. This Agreement and the rights and obligations hereunder may not be assigned or otherwise transferred by either party without the prior written consent of the other. However, without consent, Company may assign its rights and obligations hereunder to any affiliate or to a successor to all or substantially all of its business that concerns this Agreement (whether by sale of stock or assets, merger, consolidation or otherwise). Any attempted transfer in violation hereof will be void and of no effect. This Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the successors, representatives and permitted assigns of the parties.
10.6. Independent Contractors. The parties are independent contractors under this Agreement, and nothing herein will constitute either party as the employer, employee, agent or representative of the other, or both parties as joint venturers or partners for any purpose.
10.7. Force Majeure. Except for the payment of money, neither party will be liable for any failure or delay in performance under this Agreement which might be due, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, to any contingency, delay, failure, or cause of, any nature beyond the reasonable control of such party, including, without in any way limiting the generality of the foregoing, fire, explosion, earthquake, storm, flood or other weather, unavailability of telecommunications or internet services, pandemic, strike, lockout, unavailability of components, activities of a combination of workmen or other labor, difficulties, war, insurrection, riot, act of God or the public enemy, law, act, order, export control regulation, proclamation, decree, regulation, ordinance, or instructions of Government or other public authorities, or judgment or decree of a court of competent jurisdiction (not arising out of breach by such party of this Agreement).
10.8. Export. Notwithstanding anything else, MSP may not use, or provide to any Client or person, or export or re-export or allow the export or re-export of, the Vanta Services or anything related thereto or any direct product thereof, in violation of any restrictions, laws or regulations of the United States Department of Commerce, the United States Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control, or any other United States or foreign agency or authority. Each party represents that it is not named on any U.S. government denied-party list. MSP shall not access or use, nor permit any Client to access or use, the Vanta Services in a U.S. embargoed country.
10.9. Anti-Corruption. MSP agrees that it has not received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from any Client or Vanta employee or agent in connection with this Agreement. If MSP learns of any violation of the above restriction, MSP will promptly notify Vanta.
11. Data Protection.

11.2 For the purposes of the Data Protection Laws, MSP agrees that Company is a data processor (or subprocessor, as applicable) and not the data controller of any personal data related to MSP’s or any Client’s use of the Vanta Services. Solely if and to the extent MSP is processing personal data, as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation, that is contained in data on MSP’s or any Client’s behalf, then the terms of the data processing agreement available at https://vanta.axdraft.com shall apply to such processing and are incorporated into this Agreement.
11.3 MSP may enable integrations between the Vanta Services and certain third party services used by its Clients (each, an “Integration”). By enabling an Integration between the Vanta Services and any Client’s third party services, MSP is hereby instructing Company, on behalf of its Client and in accordance with such Client’s instructions to MSP, to share any Client Personal Data necessary to facilitate the Integration. MSP and its Clients are responsible for providing any and all instructions to such third party service providers about the use and protection of Client Personal Data. Company and any such third party service providers are not subprocessors of each other.
11.4 As the data controller, or processor as applicable, of MSP Personal Data and Client Personal Data, MSP represents and warrants to Company that its provision of personal data to Company and instructions for processing such personal data in connection with the Vanta Services shall comply with all Data Protection Laws.
11.5 MSP may, upon at least thirty (30) days prior notice, and no more than once per 12 month period, appoint an independent third party auditor to physically inspect and audit, at MSP’s sole cost and expense, any facilities owned or controlled by Company in which MSP or Client Personal Data is processed or stored, provided that such inspection: (i) shall occur on a mutually agreed upon date during Company’s regular business hours; (ii) does not interfere with any of Company’s business operations; and, (iii) does not, in Company’s reasonable discretion, create any risk to the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of any data stored or processed by Company. Prior to any audit, MSP, and any appointed auditor, must enter into a nondisclosure and confidentiality agreement as may be required by Company.
