The End User, as the data controller, shall be responsible for obtaining all relevant permissions, or having a proper legal basis for processing personal data of data subjects that it requests LM to process under the Contract, in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Laws. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes (but is not limited to) having a suitable privacy notice which is communicated to data subjects at the time their personal data is collected, informing the data subjects that their personal data will be processed by the End User and its sub-contractors (which for the purposes of the Contract shall be LM and its approved subcontractors) in the manner anticipated by the Contract and this Policy.

If LM is required to process the personal data for any other purpose by Applicable Data Protection Law, LM shall inform the End User of this requirement before the processing, unless that law prohibits this on important grounds of public interest;

keep and maintain accurate and complete records of all of its processing of personal data under the Contract and provide the End User relevant information regarding LM’s processing activities during the Term of the Contract, which will include providing access to and the right to audit such information as reasonably requested by the End User, at reasonable times and on reasonable notice;
ensure that any of LM’s staff who process personal data for the purposes of the Contract are reliable and have been trained in relation to the requirements of Applicable Data Protection Law and in the care and handling of personal data;
not perform its obligations under the Contract in a way that causes the End User to breach any applicable obligations under Applicable Data Protection Law;

the Managing Director (or other person of equivalent or higher seniority) of each party who shall both endeavour to agree the appointment within five (5) working days,
should the discussions over the appointment of the subcontractor remain unresolved after reference to the escalation procedure set out in sub-clauses (i) and (ii) above, LM shall not engage such a subcontractor and shall try and seek an alternative provider for approval by the End User.
LM shall return all End User personal data (if any remains in LM’s custody or control), if so requested by the End User, and provide all assistance reasonably requested by the End User to facilitate the smooth transition of the Services to the End User or any replacement supplier appointed by ensuring that all End User data stored on the LM computer systems are provided to the End User or any replacement supplier in a structured industry standard format. For the avoidance of doubt, if the End User requires the End User data in a format which is not industry standard or additional assistance is required beyond the transfer of End User data from LM’s systems to the End User or a replacement supplier, then LM shall be entitled to charge a reasonable cost (to be agreed between the parties) for placing the End User data in a non-standard format prior to such transition.
