iSite TERMS AND CONDITIONS
APPLYING TO THE SUPPLY OF DIGITAL MEDIA PRODUCTION AND HOSTING SERVICES
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1.1 The Master Service Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date, and shall continue in force for a period of twelve months (“Initial Term”), subject to the provisions for early termination in clause 9, after which the Master Service Agreement shall terminate as and when one Party serves at least 3 (three) months’ prior written notice on the other Party to terminate the Master Service Agreement (such notice to be served at any time after the Initial Term and completion of any then current Order Forms). The Parties shall not enter into any further Order Forms after the date on which a notice to terminate has been served.
1.2 The Master Service Agreement is a framework agreement under which Client can request, and iSiteTV may provide, the Services from time to time. There is no obligation on the part of: (i) Client to request Services; (ii) iSiteTV to agree to provide the Services; and (iii) either Party to enter into any Order Form.
1.3 If Client requires iSiteTV to undertake any Services, it shall discuss its requirements with iSiteTV. As soon as reasonably practicable following these discussions, iSiteTV shall submit to Client in writing for approval a Draft Order Form.
1.4 Client shall, as soon as practicable following receipt of the Draft Order Form, notify iSiteTV in writing whether Client approves the Draft Order Form; requires any modifications to the Draft Order Form (giving details); or rejects the Draft Order Form. The Parties shall work together to make any modifications to the Draft Order Form requested by Client as soon as reasonably possible following receipt of Client’s comments. iSiteTV shall then resubmit the revised Draft Order Form to Client for approval in accordance with this clause 1.4.
1.5 Once a Draft Order Form has been approved by Client, each Party shall sign it and it shall then become an Order Form made pursuant to and governed by this Master Service Agreement, binding on both Parties. For the avoidance of doubt, each Order Form shall be part of the Agreement and shall not form a separate contract to the Master Service Agreement.
1.6 If an Order Form references a specific clause in this Master Service Agreement and states that a provision in the Order Form shall take precedence over it, the Order Form shall prevail.
1.7 Notwithstanding the obligation to sign an approved Draft Order Form under Clause 1.5, if Client has received a Draft Order Form and/or the Master Agreement and has instructed iSiteTV to commence the provision of the Services without executing all of these documents, iSiteTV shall be entitled to deem the Client’s instruction as acceptance of the unexecuted document or documents. If iSiteTV exercises the aforementioned entitlement, in the case of: (i) the Master Agreement, this document shall be deemed to be executed by the Client and shall commence with binding effect as of the Effective Date; and (ii) a Draft Order Form, this document shall be deemed to be executed by the Client and shall commence with binding effect as of the Order Form Commencement Date stated within it.

(a) only retain the Personal Data of Talent who pass the casting stage, unless the Services require iSiteTV to retain a shortlist of applicants for future Client projects;
(b) implement appropriate measures and procedures, such as the maintenance of a Talent spreadsheet, to ensure Talent shall not be cast for projects relating to competing products and services. Client acknowledges it will be necessary for iSiteTV to maintain such measures beyond the term of the Agreement, in accordance with clause 6.2(c), and clause 6.9 shall not apply to these processes accordingly; and

6.3 iSiteTV will process the Personal Data (including the transfer to an international organisation or a country (other than the United Kingdom) outside the European Union): (i) only in accordance with Client’s written instructions; or (ii) as otherwise required by law (subject to iSiteTV first notifying Client of the relevant legal requirement unless such notification is itself prohibited by law on important grounds of public interest).
6.4 iSiteTV will immediately notify Client if iSiteTV (or any of its sub-contractors) believes any of Client’s instructions relating to processing Personal Data breaches any Data Protection Legislation.

6.6 iSiteTV will not transfer Personal Data to an international organisation or to any country (other than the United Kingdom) outside the European Union without the express prior written consent of Client unless: (i) such transfer is to a country or international organisation, which at the time of transfer is formally recognised by the European Commission (or the UK Information Commissioner’s Office if the UK is no longer a member of the European Union) as providing an adequate level of data protection; or (ii) iSiteTV has put in place appropriate safeguards to protect such Personal Data and ensure that the relevant data subjects have enforceable subject access rights and effective legal remedies as required by Data Protection Legislation.
6.7 iSiteTV will implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the data security risks presented by processing the Personal Data.

6.9 When iSiteTV ceases to provide Services relating to processing pursuant to this Agreement, iSiteTV shall: (i) at Client’s option, delete or return to Client all Personal Data; and (ii) delete all copies of the Personal Data except insofar as iSiteTV reasonably considers it is required by law to continue to store such copies.
6.10 iSiteTV will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to assist Client in fulfilling Client’s obligations to respond to any request by any data subject to exercise any data subject right under articles 12-23 inclusive of the GDPR or any equivalent or implementing legislation, in each case only to the extent that the data subject’s request relates to the processing of Personal Data by iSiteTV pursuant to this Agreement.
6.11 iSiteTV will at Client’s request assist Client in complying with Client’s obligations under articles 32-36 inclusive of the GDPR or any equivalent or implementing legislation, in each case only to the extent that Client’s request relates to the processing of Personal Data by iSiteTV pursuant to this Agreement.
6.12 On reasonable notice during business hours iSiteTV will allow Client, its statutory or regulatory auditors, and in each case their authorised agents, access to such information as Client may require in order to verify iSiteTV’s compliance with its obligations in relation to data processing under this Agreement. Unless Client has reasonable grounds to believe iSiteTV has committed a material breach of this clause 6, Client may not exercise its audit right more than once in any 12 (twelve) month period. Client shall use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that the conduct of any audit does not unreasonably disrupt iSiteTV or its business. Any audit will be limited to an audit of the Personal Data and the processes relating to the Personal Data and will not include any information relating to any other customer of iSiteTV or any other third party (other than a DP Sub-processor).
6.13 Client acknowledges and agrees that iSiteTV may use the following third parties (each a “DP Sub-processor”) to process any Personal Data on behalf of Client pursuant to this Agreement.

6.16 Subject to clause 6.2, Client represents, warrants and undertakes to iSiteTV that: (i) Client (and any other sub-contractor of Client) has obtained the Personal Data in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation and has provided (or will provide) all necessary notices to data subjects whose personal data comprises part of the Personal Data; and (ii) it has (or will at the required time have) one or more valid grounds for iSiteTV’s (and any DP Sub-processors and their sub-sub-processors’) processing of the Personal Data in accordance with this Agreement, so that such processing of the Personal Data in accordance with this Agreement complies with the Data Protection Legislation.
6.17 Except as expressly provided in clause 6.15 each Party will comply with its obligations in this clause 6 at no additional charge or cost to the other Party.
