4.1. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Company may (1) engage its affiliates and the Authorized Sub-Processors identified at https://www.aihelp.net/subprocessors/ (the “List”) to access and process Personal Data in connection with the Services and (2) from time to time engage additional third parties for the purpose of providing the Services, including without limitation the processing of Personal Data. By way of this Addendum, Customer provides general written authorization to Company to engage sub-processors as necessary to perform the Services.
4.2. The List may be updated by Company from time to time. Company may provide a mechanism to subscribe to notifications of new Authorized Sub-Processors and Customer agrees to subscribe to such notifications where available. At least five (5) days before enabling any third party other than existing Authorized Sub-Processors to access or participate in the processing of Personal Data, Company will add such third party to the List and notify Customer via email. Customer may object to such an engagement by informing Company in writing within five (5) days of receipt of the aforementioned notice by Customer, provided such objection is based on reasonable grounds relating to data protection. Customer acknowledges that certain sub-processors are essential to providing the Services and that objecting to the use of a sub-processor may prevent Company from offering the Services to Customer.
4.3. If Customer reasonably objects to an engagement in accordance with Section 4.2, and Company cannot provide a commercially reasonable alternative within a reasonable period of time, Customer may discontinue the use of the affected Service by providing written notice to Company. Discontinuation shall not relieve Customer of any fees owed to Company under the Agreement.
4.4. If Customer does not object to the engagement of a third party in accordance with Section 4.2 within five (5) days of notice by Company, that third party will be deemed an Authorized Sub-Processor for the purposes of this Addendum.
4.5. Company will enter into a written agreement with the Authorized Sub-Processor imposing on the Authorized Sub-Processor data protection obligations comparable to those imposed on Company under this Addendum with respect to the protection of Personal Data.

4.6. With respect to the Standard Contractual Clauses as described in Section 6 (Transfers of Personal Data), (i) the above authorizations will constitute Customer’s prior written consent to the subcontracting by Company of the processing of Personal Data if such consent is required under the Standard Contractual Clauses, and (ii) the parties agree that the copies of the agreements with Authorized Sub-Processors that must be provided by Company to Customer pursuant to Clause 5(j) of the UK SCCs or Clause 9(c) of the EU SCCs may have commercial information, or information unrelated to the Standard Contractual Clauses or their equivalent, removed by the Company beforehand, and that such copies will be provided by the Company only upon request by Customer.
Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, Company shall maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing Personal Data.
