Hierin genutzte, großgeschriebene Begriffe, die nicht ausdrücklich definiert sind, haben die in der Vereinbarung festgelegten Bedeutungen.

1. Universal Cloud Application Manager Supplemental Terms
(Applicable to all Cloud Application Manager Services)

  1. CenturyLink or its suppliers may collect and process, and share with each other, "Relationship Data" and "Usage Data" solely for the following purposes: (i) Relationship Data - to operate the Services, manage Customer accounts, send notifications, invoice purchased services, provide support, and comply with applicable law and (ii) Usage Data - to provide the Service (including tracking and managing its infrastructure, network, storage, and software for billing, capacity planning, troubleshooting, and other forecasting and improvement purposes). CenturyLink may share Relationship Data and Usage Data with its affiliates and third party service providers for these purposes only, to comply with contractual obligations or as otherwise required by applicable law. For purposes hereof, "Relationship Data" means personal information that CenturyLink or its suppliers collect from Customer during the registration, activation and maintenance of a Service account and "Usage Data" means anonymized information regarding Customer's or its end users' consumption of the Service, such as information on the amount of computing and storage resources purchased or consumed, user counts, and third party licenses consumed. Customer, on behalf of itself and any applicable third parties, hereby consents to CenturyLink accessing, storing and otherwise processing and transferring Relationship Data and Usage/ Data in or to the United States or to any other jurisdiction where CenturyLink has a data center, support, or processing systems for the sole purpose of: (i) providing and managing the Services; (ii) fulfilling its obligations under the Agreement; and (iii) complying with applicable law. It is Customer's responsibility to ensure that it has obtained all requisite consents and to comply with applicable law with respect to data processing and transfers across jurisdictions.
  2. Production related information or data is not managed within the CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager as this platform serves solely as an orchestration engine. CenturyLink does not have access to the proprietary data what resides within the native platforms.
  3. CenturyLink's access to scripts related to activities performed on the applications and infrastructures is limited to the organizations and workspaces that are dedicated to the customer account. CenturyLink only accesses these environments when the customer requests support and/or Managed Services Anywhere. Once the service and/or accounts are terminated, the associated scripts are also terminated. CenturyLink does not continue to access or retain proprietary customer script information.
  4. If the Customer contracting with CenturyLink is a German company or a German branch of a multi-national company, Customer acknowledges and agrees that, as the data controller, it is solely responsible for the lawfulness of the data processing and compliance with mandatory provisions of the German Data Protection Act. As the data controller, Customer is required to execute a Data Protection Agreement (a "DPA"). Please download and print the DPA and return an executed copy by email to CenturyLink. Please include an email or address where CenturyLink can return a counter-signed copy.
  5. Withholding Taxes. All invoices will be issued to Customer and paid in the currency specified in the Service Order. Customer will pay such invoices free of currency exchange costs, or bank charges. Service charges are exclusive of Taxes and presented without reduction for any Withholding Tax, all of which are the responsibility of the Customer. “Withholding Tax” means any amount on account of tax on sources of income which a payor is obliged to deduct from payments due to a recipient and account for to any tax authority. In the event that any payment to be made to CenturyLink hereunder should be subject to reduction by reason of a Withholding Tax, Customer agrees to pay CenturyLink such amounts as would have been necessary so that the aggregate net amount received by CenturyLink after application of a Withholding Tax, is the same amount as would have been received by CenturyLink if there had been no requirement to deduct or withhold such tax.
