1.     Segment services. Segment offers a suite of Services for data integration, data governance and audience management, as further described below and in the Documentation.

1.1.  Overview.  Segment’s “Connections” Service acts as a central hub for Customer Data, allowing Customer to collect Customer Data from its selected sources (“Sources”), such as its own or third-party websites or properties, and send the Customer Data to Customer’s chosen destinations (“Destinations”), such as Customer’s databases or its accounts with third-party applications or services, for Customer’s further use. The supported Sources and Destinations are identified in the Documentation. For Sources owned or controlled by Customers (“Customer Properties”), Customer enables the collection of Customer Data by implementing Segment’s JavaScript, SDK or other code (“Segment Code”) on such Customer Properties.  As further described below and in the Documentation, Customer maintains control over which Sources and Destinations it uses with the Services, as well as the types and content of Customer Data it shares between its Sources and Destinations.

1.2.  Additional Services. If included on an Order Form, Customer may also receive access to additional Segment services that may be used with Connections (e.g. Personas or Protocols). The features of any additional services are further described in the applicable Order Form. For clarity, any additional services are considered part of the Services for purposes of this Agreement.

1.5.  Access to the Services.  During the Subscription Term, Customer may access and use the Services for its internal business operations, subject to this Agreement, the Documentation, and any scope of use restrictions on the applicable Order Form.  This includes the right to implement Segment Code on Customer Properties in order to collect Customer Data for use with the Services.  Access to the Services is limited to Customer’s employees and contractors acting for the sole benefit of Customer (“Permitted Users”). Customer and its Permitted Users may need to register for a Segment account in order to access or use the Services.

2.1.  Data Collection. Subject to this Agreement and as further described in the Documentation, Customer may configure the Customer Data elements to be collected from Sources and shared with different Destinations. In some instances, as referenced in the Services dashboard and Documentation, enabling a third-party Destination involves implementing the third-party provider’s own SDK or code on Customer Properties. As a result, in these cases, certain default data designated by that Destination’s provider may be sent directly to Customer’s accounts with that Destination, rather than passing through the Services. 

2.2.  Rights in Customer Data. Customer is solely responsible for the accuracy, content and legality of all Customer Data. Customer represents and warrants to Segment that (1) Customer will comply with all applicable Laws in its use of the Services (including, if applicable, the California Online Privacy Protection Act, European Union Regulation 2016/679 and similar Laws governing cross-site tracking or automated decision-making) and (2) Customer has provided all disclosures and obtained all necessary rights, consents and permissions to collect, share and use Customer Data as contemplated in this Agreement (including granting Segment the rights in Section 4.1 and Customer’s building, tracking, using or sharing of any user profiles, traits or audiences), without violation or infringement of (i) any third party intellectual property, publicity, privacy or other rights, (ii) any Laws, or (iii) any terms of service, privacy policies or other agreement governing the Customer Properties or Customer’s accounts with third-party Sources or Destinations. By enabling use of the Services with any Source or Destination, Customer authorizes Segment to access Customer’s accounts with such Source or Destination for the purposes described in this Agreement. In addition, in order to provide the Services to Customer and improve Segment’s integrations with Sources and Destinations, Segment may also disclose Customer’s status as a Segment customer and related technical Services data to the providers of Customer’s Sources and Destinations.

2.3.  No Sensitive Personal Information.  Customer specifically agrees not to use the Services to collect, store, process or transmit any Sensitive Personal Information.  Customer acknowledges that Segment is not a Business Associate or subcontractor (as those terms are defined in HIPAA) or a payment card processor and that the Services is neither HIPAA nor PCI DSS compliant.  Segment shall have no liability under this Agreement for Sensitive Personal Information, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.

This indemnification obligation is subject to Customer receiving (i) prompt written notice of such claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for Customer to respond without prejudice); (ii) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, or settlement of such claim; and (iii) all reasonably necessary cooperation of Segment (at Customer’s expense for reasonable out-of-pocket costs). 

3.      SECURITY.  Segment agrees to use commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to prevent unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure of the Services or Customer Data, as further described in Segment’s Information Security Policy attached as Exhibit A.  However, Segment shall have no responsibility for errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access or other causes beyond Segment’s control.

4.      OWNERSHIP 

4.1.  Customer Data. As between the parties, Customer shall retain all right, title and interest (including any and all intellectual property rights) in and to the Customer Data as provided to Segment.  Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Customer hereby grants to Segment a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free right to use, copy, store, transmit, modify, create derivative works of and display the Customer Data solely to the extent necessary to provide the Services to Customer during the Subscription Term.

4.2.  Segment Technology. This is a subscription agreement for access to and use of the Services. Customer agrees that Segment or its suppliers retain all right, title and interest (including all patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property rights) in and to the Services, all Documentation, Technical Services deliverables and any and all related and underlying technology and documentation and any derivative works, modifications or improvements of any of the foregoing, including as may incorporate Feedback (as defined below). Segment may generate Usage Data to operate, improve, analyze and support the Services, for benchmarking and reporting and for Segment’s other lawful business purposes. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, no rights in the Services or any Segment technology are granted to Customer. 

4.3.  Feedback.  Customer, from time to time, may submit comments, questions, suggestions or other feedback relating to any Segment product or service to Segment (“Feedback”). Segment may freely use or exploit Feedback in connection with any of its products or services.

5.      Subscription Term, FEES & PAYMENT      

5.1.  Subscription Term and Renewals.  Unless otherwise specified on the applicable Order Form, each Subscription Term shall automatically renew for additional twelve (12) month periods unless either party gives the other written notice of termination at least thirty (30) days prior to expiration of the then-current Subscription Term.

5.3.  Taxes. Segment’s fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, including for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”) and Customer shall be responsible for payment of all Taxes associated with this Agreement and all Order Forms, except that Segment is solely responsible for taxes assessable against Segment based on Segment’s net income, property, and employees. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, Customer shall notify Segment and shall pay Segment any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that Segment receives, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount Segment would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required.

5.4.  Overages. If Customer exceeds its permitted usage in any month of a Subscription Term as specified in an Order Form, Segment reserves the right to charge overage fees in respect of such excess usage at the applicable overage rates set forth in the Order Form.

6.1.  Term.  This Agreement is effective as of the Effective Date and expires on the date of expiration or termination of all Subscription Terms. 

6.2.  Termination for Cause.  Either party may terminate this Agreement (including all related Order Forms) if the other party (a) fails to cure any material breach of this Agreement (including a failure to pay fees) within thirty (30) days after written notice; (b) ceases operation without a successor; or (c) seeks protection under any bankruptcy, receivership, trust deed, creditors’ arrangement, composition, or comparable proceeding, or if any such proceeding is instituted against that party (and not dismissed within sixty (60) days thereafter). 

6.3.  Suspension of Services.  Without limiting Segment’s termination or other rights hereunder, Segment reserves the right to suspend Customer’s access to the Services (and any related services) in whole or in part, without liability to Customer: (i) if Customer’s account is thirty (30) days or more overdue; (ii) for Customer’s breach of Sections 1.5 (Access to the Services), 1.6 (Use Restrictions) or 2 (Customer Obligations); or (iii) to prevent harm to other customers or third parties or to preserve the security, availability or integrity of the Services.  When practicable, Segment will use reasonable efforts to provide Customer with advance notice of the suspension (email sufficing).  Unless this Agreement has been terminated, Segment will cooperate to restore Customer’s access to the Services promptly after Segment verifies that Customer has resolved the issue requiring suspension. 

6.4.  Effect of Termination.  Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement, Customer shall immediately cease any and all use of and access to the Services (including any and all related Segment technology), cease distributing any Segment Code installed on Customer Properties, and delete (or, at Segment’s request, return) any and all copies of the Documentation, any Segment passwords or access codes and any other Segment Confidential Information in its possession. Customer acknowledges that following termination it shall have no further access to any Customer Data in the Services, and that Segment may delete any such data as may have been stored by Segment at any time.  Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement, Segment shall delete all Customer Data within sixty (60) days after receipt of Customer’s written request.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer understands that Segment may retain copies of Customer Data in regular backups or as required by Laws, which will remain subject to the security standards in Section 3 (Security).  Except where an exclusive remedy is specified, the exercise of either party of any remedy under this Agreement, including termination, will be without prejudice to any other remedies it may have under this Agreement, by law or otherwise.

Segment’s sole liability (and Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy) for any breach of this warranty shall be, at no charge to Customer, for Segment to use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the reported non-conformity, or if Segment determines such remedy to be impracticable, either party may terminate the applicable Subscription Term and Customer will receive as its sole remedy a refund of any fees Customer has pre-paid for use of the applicable Services for the terminated portion of the applicable Subscription Term.  The limited warranty set forth in this Section 7.1 shall not apply: (i) unless Customer makes a claim within thirty (30) days of the date on which Customer first noticed the non-conformity, (ii) if the error was caused by misuse, unauthorized modifications or third-party hardware, software or services, or (iii) to Beta Releases or any use of the Services provided on a no-charge or evaluation basis.

For prepaid Technical Services, unless specified in the Order Form, Customer is paying for the availability and efforts of Segment personnel over the time period specified in the Order Form (e.g., up to eight hours in a week); any unused time expires at the end of such period (or at maximum, six (6) months after purchase) and may not be banked, accumulated or saved for future periods or purchases. To facilitate Technical Services, Customer will provide Segment with access to reasonably requested Customer Materials and cooperation and will designate an internal project manager to serve as Segment’s single point of contact.  If Customer fails to do so, Segment’s obligation to provide Technical Services will be excused until Customer does. Segment will use Customer Materials only for purposes of providing Technical Services. If Segment provides deliverables as part of Technical Services, Customer may use the deliverables only as part of its authorized use of the Services, subject to the same terms as for the Services in Section 1 (Segment Services) and Section 2 (Customer Obligations).

10.4.     Nature of Claims and Failure of Essential Purpose.  The parties agree that the waivers and limitations specified in this Section 10 apply regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise and will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in this Agreement is found to have failed of its essential purpose.

11.  INDEMNIFICATION.  Segment shall defend Customer from and against any claim by a third party alleging that the Services when used as authorized under this Agreement infringes a U.S. patent or any copyright or trademark and shall indemnify and hold harmless Customer from and against any damages and costs awarded against Customer or agreed in settlement by Segment (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from such claim, provided that Segment has received from Customer: (i) prompt written notice of such claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for Segment to respond without prejudice); (ii) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense and settlement (if applicable) of such claim; and (iii) all reasonably necessary cooperation of Customer (at Segment’s expense for reasonable out-of-pocket costs).  If Customer’s use of the Services is (or in Segment’s opinion is likely to be) enjoined, if required by settlement or if Segment determines such actions are reasonably necessary to avoid material liability, Segment may, in its sole discretion: (a) substitute substantially functionally similar products or services; (b) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Services; or if (a) and (b) are not commercially reasonable, (c) terminate the Agreement and refund to Customer the fees paid by Customer for the portion of the Subscription Term that was paid by Customer but not rendered by Segment. The foregoing indemnification obligation of Segment shall not apply: (1) if the Services are modified by any party other than Segment, but solely to the extent the alleged infringement is caused by such modification; (2) if the Services are combined with products or processes not provided by Segment, but solely to the extent the alleged infringement is caused by such combination; (3) to any unauthorized use of the Services; (4) to any action arising as a result of Customer Data or any third-party deliverables or components contained within the Services; (5) if Customer settles or makes any admissions with respect to a claim without Segment’s prior written consent; or (6) to Beta Releases or any use of the Services provided on a no-charge or evaluation basis.  THIS SECTION 11 SETS FORTH Segment’s AND ITS SUPPLIERS’ SOLE LIABILITY AND CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT.

12.   CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. Each party (as “Receiving Party”) agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information it obtains from the disclosing party (“Disclosing Party”) constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party (“Confidential Information”), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the Receiving Party to be confidential or proprietary due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure.  Any Segment technology, performance information relating to the Services, and the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall be deemed Confidential Information of Segment without any marking or further designation.  Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party shall (1) hold in confidence and not disclose any Confidential Information to third parties and (2) not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than fulfilling its obligations and exercising its rights under this Agreement.  The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors and other representatives having a legitimate need to know (including, for Segment, the subcontractors referenced in Section 16.10), provided that such representatives are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective of the Disclosing Party than this Section 12 and that the Receiving Party remains responsible for compliance by any such representative with the terms of this Section 12.  The Receiving Party’s confidentiality obligations shall not apply to information that the Receiving Party can document: (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information.  The Receiving Party may make disclosures to the extent required by law or court order, provided the Receiving Party notifies the Disclosing Party in advance and cooperates in any effort to obtain confidential treatment.  The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law. 

13.       Beta Releases. Customer may receive access to a Service (or Service features) as an alpha, beta or early access offering (“Beta Releases”). Segment identifies all Beta Releases as such and any usage by Customer is optional. Use of a Beta Release is permitted only for Customer’s internal evaluation during the period designated by Segment (or if not designated, 30 days) and may be subject to additional terms provided by Segment and agreed by Customer. Segment may suspend or terminate Customer’s access to Beta Releases at any time for any reason. Beta Releases may be inoperable, incomplete or include features that Segment may never release, and their features and performance information are Segment’s Confidential Information. Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, Segment provides no warranty, service levels or support for Beta Releases and its liability for Beta Releases will not exceed US$50.

14.  CO-MARKETING.  Customer agrees to participate in reasonable marketing activities that promote the benefits of the Services to other potential customers and to use of Customer’s name and logo on Segment’s web site and in Segment promotional materials. Customer agrees that Segment may disclose Customer as a customer of Segment.


15.1.     Modifications to this Agreement. Segment may modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement (which may include changes to Services pricing and plans, or modifications to the Service Level and Support Policy and the security terms described in Exhibit A (Information Security Policy) from time to time with notice to Customer in accordance with Section 16.5 (Notice). Unless a shorter period is specified by Segment (e.g., due to changes in the law or exigent circumstances), the modifications become effective upon renewal of Customer’s current Subscription Term or entry into a new Order Form. If Segment specifies that the modifications to the Agreement will take effect prior to Customer’s next renewal or order and Customer notifies Segment in writing of its objection to the modifications within thirty (30) days after the date of such notice, Segment (at its option and as Customer’s exclusive remedy) will either: (a) permit Customer to continue under the existing version of this Agreement until expiration of the then-current Subscription Term (after which time the modified Agreement will go into effect) or (b) allow Customer to terminate this Agreement and receive a pro-rated refund of any fees Customer has pre-paid for use of the Services for the terminated portion of the applicable Subscription Term. Customer may be required to click to accept or otherwise agree to the modified Agreement in order to continue using the Services, and, in any event, continued use of the Services after the updated version of this Agreement goes into effect will constitute Customer’s acceptance of such updated version.


16.1.    Assignment. This Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of each party’s permitted successors and assigns.  Neither party may assign this Agreement without the advance written consent of the other party, except that either party may assign this Agreement in connection with a merger, reorganization, acquisition or other transfer of all or substantially all of such party’s assets or voting securities (any of the foregoing, a “Change of Control”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to any Change of Control by Customer: (a) Customer shall provide written notice to Segment of any such Change of Control either before or within five (5) days after its taking effect and (b) the assignee agrees in writing to assume all of the obligations of Customer under this Agreement. Any attempt to transfer or assign this Agreement except as expressly authorized under this Section 16.1 will be null and void.

1.1.    Requires unique user access authorization through secure logins and passwords, including multi-factor authentication for Cloud Hosting administrator access and individually-assigned Secure Socket Shell (SSH) keys for external engineer access;

1.2.    Limits the Customer Data available to Segment personnel on a “need to know” basis;

1.3.    Restricts access to Segment’s production environment by Segment personnel on the basis of business need;

c.      This Addendum will be governed by and construed in accordance with governing law and jurisdiction provisions in the Agreement, unless required otherwise by applicable Data Protection Laws.

d.      This Addendum will automatically terminate upon expiration or termination of the Agreement. 

4.              Scope of this Addendum

This Addendum applies to Segment’s Processing of Customer Personal Data under the Agreement, except that Annex A (EU Annex) to this Addendum applies only to such Processing of Customer Personal Data governed by EU Data Protection Law and Annex B (California Annex) to this Addendum applies only to such Processing of Customer Personal Data governed by the CCPA. 

5.               Role and Scope of the Processing

a.      Segment will Process Customer Data only in accordance with Customer’s instructions. By entering into the Agreement, Customer instructs Segment to Process Customer Data to provide the Services and pursuant to any other written instructions given by Customer and acknowledged in writing by Segment as constituting instructions for purposes of this Addendum. Customer acknowledges and agrees that such instruction authorizes Segment to Process Customer Data (a) to perform its obligations and exercise its rights under the Agreement; and (b) to perform its legal obligations and to establish, exercise or defend legal claims in respect of the Agreement.

b.      For clarity, nothing in this Addendum limits Segment from transmitting Customer Data to and among Sources and Destinations as directed by Customer through the Services. The parties agree that neither Sources nor Destinations are Subprocessors of Segment and that, between the parties, Customer is solely responsible for the Processing of Customer Personal Data by, and other acts and omissions of, Sources and Destinations or parties associated therewith.

6.              Subprocessing

a.      Customer specifically authorizes Segment to use its Affiliates as Subprocessors, and generally authorizes Segment to engage Third Party Subprocessors to Process Customer Personal Data. Segment:

(i)        shall enter into a written agreement with each Subprocessor, imposing data protection obligations substantially similar to those set out in this Addendum; and

(ii)        remains liable for compliance with the obligations of this Addendum and for any acts or omissions of the Subprocessor that cause Segment to breach any of its obligations under this Addendum. 

b.      A list of Segment’s Subprocessors, including their functions and locations, is available at or such other website as Segment may designate (“Subprocessor Page”), and may be updated by Segment from time to time in accordance with this Addendum.

c.      When any new Third Party Subprocessor is engaged, Segment will notify Customer of the engagement, which notice may be given by updating the Subprocessor Page and via a message through Customer’s Segment Workspace. Segment will give such notice at least ten (10) calendar days before the new Subprocessor Processes any Customer Personal Data, except that if Segment reasonably believes engaging a new Subprocessor on an expedited basis is necessary to protect the confidentiality, integrity or availability of the Customer Personal Data or avoid material disruption to the Services, Segment will give such notice as soon as reasonably practicable. If, within five (5) calendar days after such notice, Customer notifies Segment in writing that Customer objects to Segment’s appointment of a new Third Party Subprocessor based on reasonable data protection concerns, the parties will discuss such concerns in good faith and whether they can be resolved. If the parties are not able to mutually agree to a resolution of such concerns, Customer, as its sole and exclusive remedy, may terminate the Agreement for convenience.

7.              Security

a.      Segment shall implement and maintain technical and organizational security measures designed to protect Customer Personal Data from Security Incidents and to preserve the security and confidentiality of the Customer Personal Data, in accordance with Segment’s security standards referenced in the Agreement (“Security Measures”).

b.      Customer is responsible for reviewing the information made available by Segment relating to data security and making an independent determination as to whether the Services meet Customer’s requirements and legal obligations under Data Protection Laws. Customer acknowledges that the Security Measures may be updated from time to time upon reasonable notice to Customer to reflect process improvements or changing practices (but the modifications will not materially decrease Segment’s obligations as compared to those reflected in such terms as of the Effective Date).

c.      Upon becoming aware of a confirmed Security Incident, Segment shall notify Customer without undue delay unless prohibited by applicable law. A delay in giving such notice requested by law enforcement and/or in light of Segment’s legitimate needs to investigate or remediate the matter before providing notice shall not constitute an undue delay. Such notices will describe, to the extent possible, details of the Security Incident, including steps taken to mitigate the potential risks and steps Segment recommends Customer take to address the Security Incident. Without prejudice to Segment’s obligations under this Section 7.c., Customer is solely responsible for complying with Security Incident notification laws applicable to Customer and fulfilling any third party notification obligations related to any Security Incidents. Segment’s notification of or response to a Security Incident under this Section 7.c. will not be construed as an acknowledgement by Segment of any fault or liability with respect to the Security Incident.

d.      Customer agrees that, without limitation of Segment’s obligations under this Section 7, Customer is solely responsible for its use of the Services, including (a) making appropriate use of the Services to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk in respect of the Customer Data; (b) securing the account authentication credentials, systems and devices Customer uses to access the Services; (c) securing Customer’s systems and devices that it uses with the Services; and (d) maintaining its own backups of Customer Data.

8.              Data Subject Requests

Segment shall upon Customer’s request (and at Customer’s expense) provide Customer with such assistance as it may reasonably require to comply with its obligations under Data Protection Laws to respond to requests from individuals to exercise their rights under Data Protection Laws (e.g., rights of data access, rectification, erasure, restriction, portability and objection) in cases where Customer cannot reasonably fulfill such requests independently by using the self-service functionality of the Services. If Segment receives a request from a Data Subject in relation to their Customer Personal Data, Segment will advise the Data Subject to submit their request to Customer, and Customer will be responsible for responding to any such request.

9.              Return or Deletion of Data

a.      Segment shall, within sixty (60) days after request by Customer following the termination or expiration of the Agreement, delete all of the Customer Personal Data from Segment’s systems. 

b.      Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer understands that Segment may retain Customer Personal Data if required by law, which data will remain subject to the requirements of this Addendum.

Annex A – EU Annex

1.              Definitions; Processing of Data

a.      Definitions. For purposes of this Annex A, the terms “controller”, “processor” and “supervisory authority” have the meanings given in EU Data Protection Law; “Standard Contractual Clauses” means the Standard Contractual Clauses for Processors as approved by the European Commission under Decision 2010/87/EU in the form made accessible in Customer’s Segment Workspace; and “data importer” and “data exporter” have the meanings given in the Standard Contractual Clauses.

b.      Subject Matter and Details of Processing. The parties acknowledge and agree that (a) the subject matter of the Processing under the Agreement is Segment’s provision of the Services; (b) the duration of the Processing is from Segment’s receipt of Customer Personal Data until deletion of all Customer Personal Data by Segment in accordance with the Agreement; (c) the nature and purpose of the Processing is to provide the Services; (d) the Data Subjects to whom the Processing pertains are Customer’s customers, end users or other individuals to whom Customer Personal Data pertains; and (e) the categories of Customer Personal Data are such categories as Customer is authorized to ingest into the Services under the Agreement. 

c.     Roles and Regulatory Compliance; Authorization. The parties acknowledge and agree that (a) Segment is a processor of the Customer Personal Data under EU Data Protection Law; (b) Customer is a controller of the Customer Personal Data under EU Data Protection Law; and (c) each party will comply with the obligations applicable to it in such role under EU Data Protection Law with respect to the Processing of Customer Personal Data. To the extent that any Usage Data (as defined in the Agreement) is considered Personal Data, Segment is the controller with respect to such data and shall Process such data in accordance with its Privacy Policy, which can be found at

d.      Segment’s Compliance with Instructions. Segment will only Process Customer Personal Data in accordance with Customer’s instructions in this Addendum unless EU Data Protection Law requires otherwise, in which case Segment will notify Customer (unless that law prohibits Segment from doing so).

2.               Data Security

a.      Segment Security Measures, Controls and Assistance

(i)         Segment will (taking into account the nature of the Processing of Customer Personal Data and the information available to Segment) provide Customer with reasonable assistance necessary for Customer to comply with its obligations in respect of Customer Personal Data under EU Data Protection Law, including Articles 32 to 34 (inclusive) of the GDPR, by (a) implementing and maintaining the Security Measures; (b) complying with the terms of Section 7 of this Addendum; and (c) complying with this Annex A.

(ii)        Segment will grant access to Customer Personal Data only to personnel who need such access for the scope of their job duties, and are subject to appropriate confidentiality obligations. Should an employee of a Customer seek to exercise their rights under EU Data Protection Laws (e.g., rights of data access, rectification, erasure, restriction, portability and objection) in respect of any Usage Data that constitutes Personal Data then the Customer undertakes to inform Segment without delay and instruct their employee to contact Segment directly via or such other email address as directed at the time.

b.      Audits and Reviews of Compliance. To the extent applicable Data Protection Laws include a right for Customer to audit Segment’s Processing of Customer Personal Data, Customer will exercise such audit right, and Segment will fulfill its corresponding obligations, as follows:

(i)        Segment shall make available to Customer relevant information regarding Segment’s Processing of Customer Personal Data under this Addendum in the form of Segment’s most recent ISO 27001, ISO 27017 or ISO 27018 certifications or similar audit reports (“Third Party Reports”).

(ii)       Not more than once per calendar year and at Customer’s expense, Customer may audit Segment’s Processing of Customer Personal Data for compliance with its obligations under this Addendum by submitting reasonable requests for information, including security and audit questionnaires. Segment will provide written responses to the extent the requested information is necessary to confirm Segment’s compliance with this Addendum. However, if the requested information is addressed in a Third Party Report issued within the 12-month period prior to Customer’s request and Segment confirms there have been no material changes in the interim relevant to Customer’s request, Customer agrees to accept such Third Party Report in lieu of a written response. Any information provided by Segment under this Section 2.b. constitutes Segment’s Confidential Information under the Agreement.

(iii)      If a third party is to conduct an audit under this Section 2.b., Segment may object to the auditor if the auditor is, in Segment’s reasonable opinion, not independent, a competitor of Segment or otherwise unqualified. Such objection by Segment will require Customer to appoint another auditor or conduct the audit itself.

(iv)      Customer will promptly notify Segment of any non-compliance discovered during the course of an audit and provide Segment any audit reports generated in connection with any audit under this Section 2.b., unless prohibited by EU Data Protection Law or otherwise instructed by a supervisory authority. Customer may use the audit reports only for the purposes of meeting Customer’s regulatory audit requirements and confirming that Segment’s Processing of Customer Personal Data complies with this Addendum.

(v)       Customer shall reimburse Segment for any time expended by Segment or its Subprocessors in connection with any audits under this Section 2.b. at Segment’s then-current professional services rates, which shall be made available to Customer upon request. Customer will be responsible for any fees charged by any auditor appointed by Customer to execute any such audit. Nothing in this Addendum shall be construed to require Segment to furnish more information about its Third Party Subprocessors in connection with such audits than such Third Party Subprocessors make generally available to their customers. Nothing in this Section 2.b. shall require Segment to breach any duties of confidentiality.

3.              Impact Assessments and Consultations

Segment may (taking into account the nature of the Processing and the information available to Segment) reasonably assist Customer in complying with Customer’s obligations under Articles 35 and 36 of the GDPR, by (a) making available documentation describing relevant aspects of Segment’s information security program and the security measures applied in connection therewith; and (b) providing the other information contained in the Agreement, including this Addendum.

4.              Data Transfers

a.      Data Processing Facilities. Segment may, subject to Section 4.b., store and Process Customer Personal Data in the United States or anywhere Segment or its Subprocessors maintain facilities. Subject to Segment’s obligations in this Section 4, Customer is responsible for ensuring that its use of the Services complies with any cross-border data transfer restrictions of EU Data Protection Law.

b.     Privacy Shield. To the extent that Segment Processes any Customer Personal Data of individuals in the EU or Switzerland in the United States, then Segment shall protect such Customer Personal Data in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles and Supplemental Principles of the EU-U.S. and Swiss Privacy Shield Frameworks (“Privacy Shield”). If Segment is unable to comply with this requirement, Segment shall inform Customer.

c.      Standard Contractual Clauses. If Customer is established in the EU and transfers Customer Personal Data out of the EU to Segment in a country not deemed by the European Commission to have adequate data protection, and the Privacy Shield ceases to be a basis by which Customer may lawfully make such transfer to Segment under Chapter V of the GDPR, and no lawful alternative basis for such transfer applies, such transfer will be governed by the Standard Contractual Clauses, the terms of which are hereby incorporated into this Addendum. In furtherance of the foregoing, the parties agree that:

(i)        for purposes of the Standard Contractual Clauses, (a) Customer will act as the data exporter and (b) Segment will act as the data importer;

(ii)       for purposes of Appendix 1 to the Standard Contractual Clauses, the Data Subjects, categories of data, and the processing operations shall be as set out in Section 1.b. to this Annex A;

(iii)      for purposes of Appendix 2 to the Standard Contractual Clauses, the technical and organizational measures shall be the Security Measures;

(iv)      upon data exporter’s request under the Standard Contractual Clauses, data importer will provide the copies of the Subprocessor agreements that must be sent by the data importer to the data exporter pursuant to Clause 5(j) of the Standard Contractual Clauses, and data importer may remove or redact all commercial information or clauses unrelated to the Standard Contractual Clauses or their equivalent beforehand;

(v)       the audits described in Clause 5(f) and Clause 12(2) of the Standard Contractual Clauses shall be performed in accordance with Section 2.b. of this Annex A;

(vi)      Customer’s authorizations in Section 6 of this Addendum (Subprocessing) will constitute Customer’s prior written consent to the subcontracting by Segment of the Processing of Customer Personal Data if such consent is required under Clause 5(h) of the Standard Contractual Clauses;

(vii)     certification of deletion of Customer Personal Data as described in Clause 12(1) of the Standard Contractual Clauses shall be provided only upon Customer’s request; and

(viii)     the Standard Contractual Clauses shall automatically terminate once the Customer Personal Data transfer governed thereby becomes lawful under Chapter V of the GDPR in the absence of such Standard Contractual Clauses on any other basis.

Annex B - California Annex

1.     For purposes of this Annex B, the terms “business”, “commercial purpose”, “service provider”, “sell” and “personal information” have the meanings given in the CCPA. 

2.     With respect to Customer Personal Data, Segment is a service provider under the CCPA.

3.      Segment will not (a) sell Customer Personal Data; (b) retain, use or disclose any Customer Personal Data for any purpose other than for the specific purpose of providing the Services, including retaining, using or disclosing the Customer Personal Data for a commercial purpose other than providing the Services; or (c) retain, use or disclose the Customer Personal Data outside of the direct business relationship between Segment and Customer.

4.      The parties acknowledge and agree that the Processing of Customer Personal Data authorized by Customer’s instructions described in Section 5 of this Addendum is integral to and encompassed by Segment’s provision of the Services and the direct business relationship between the parties.

5.       Notwithstanding anything in the Agreement or any Order Form entered in connection therewith, the parties acknowledge and agree that Segment’s access to Customer Personal Data does not constitute part of the consideration exchanged by the parties in respect of the Agreement.

6.       To the extent that any Usage Data (as defined in the Agreement) is considered Personal Data, Segment is the business with respect to such data and shall Process such data in accordance with its Privacy Policy, which can be found at
