9.3 Where an Authorized Affiliate becomes a party to the Agreement with CybelAngel it will, to the extent required under applicable Data Protection Laws and pursuant to the provisions hereto, be entitled to exercise the rights and seek remedies as subject to the following:

9.3.1 Except where applicable Data Protection Laws require the Authorized Affiliate to exercise a right or seek any remedy against CybelAngel directly by itself, pursuant to the provisions hereto, the parties agree that (i) solely the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement will exercise any such right or seek any such remedy on behalf of the Authorized Affiliate, and (ii) the Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement will exercise any such rights under the provisions hereto, not separately for each Authorized Affiliate individually but in a combined manner for itself and all of its Authorized Affiliates together.

9.3.2 The Customer that is the contracting party to the Agreement will, when carrying out any audit of the procedures relevant to the protection of Personal Data, take all reasonable measures to limit any impact on CybelAngel and its sub-processors by combining, to the extent possible, all audit requests of itself and all of its Authorized Affiliates in one single audit.

  1. Limitation of Liability

Each party’s and all of its Affiliates’ liability, taken together in the aggregate, arising out of or related to the provisions hereto whether in contract, tort or under any other theory of liability, is subject to Section 10 (Limitation of Liability) of the Agreement, and any reference in such section to the liability of a party means the aggregate liability of that party and all of its Affiliates under the Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, CybelAngel’s and its Affiliates’ total liability for all claims from Customer and all Authorized Affiliates will not be understood to apply individually and severally to Customer and/or to any Authorized Affiliate that is a contractual party to any such DPP.
