We procure GDPR advisory services, and any processing of personal data takes place in compliance with GDPR and the Danish Data Protection Act. When providing the Services Genux Executive is the data processor and the Customer is the data controller, and Genux Executive acts solely on behalf of and according to instructions from the Customer. Genux Executive shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risks presented by processing, in particular from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed, and the protection of the rights of the data subject. Genux Executive shall make available to the Customer the information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations laid down in this paragraph. Genux Executive shall notify the Customer without undue delay after becoming aware of a personal data breach. Upon the termination of the provisions of the Services Genux Executive shall delete all personal data processed on behalf of the Customer, however Genux will keep the data for a storage period responding to a guaranteed period or for administration reasons.
5. Limitation of Liability
Any error, omission or delay claim, regardless of its nature, must be submitted by the Customer in writing no later than 4 weeks after the Activity in question has or should have been provided by Genux Executive. If the Customer fails to do so, the Customer cannot subsequently submit such a claim and shall lose the right to hold Genux Executive liable for the error, omission or delay in question.
Genux Executive’s liability for errors, omission or delays is under any circumstances limited to – at Genux Executive’s sole discretion – redelivery of the Activity in question, remedy of said Activity or giving the Customer a proportionate reduction – determined by Genux Executive – in the amount paid by the Customer.
Consequently, to the extent not prohibited by applicable law, Genux Executive shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, including but not limited to damages for loss of profits, revenue, goodwill, use, operation, data or other economic advantage, regardless of the basis for the claim and the degree of negligence on the part of Genux Executive, arising out of or related to the provisions of Services by Genux Executive.
Genux Executive shall under no circumstances be liable for errors, omissions or delays caused by the Customer or by force majeure. In case of force majeure Genux Executive is – exempt of liability – entitled to postpone the provision of the Services in question until the force majeure conditions have ceased or alternatively cancel the Agreement wholly or partly.
Genux Executive’s liability for any loss or damage is limited in amount to 50% of the amount actually paid by the Customer for the Activity on which the claim is based.
Genux Executive has the right to change and add to these general terms and conditions at any time, without prior notice.
