2. Human Oversight of AI

By using AI features in the Product, Customer acknowledges and agrees that any action or decision that may impact an individual’s privacy rights (for example, the application of tags and other metadata to an individual’s photograph or recorded likeness) shall be subject to human oversight and intervention as needed. Under GDPR and other applicable privacy laws, individuals have the right to not be subjected to decisions solely based on automated processing (including “profiling”) that may affect their privacy rights. Customer shall comply with applicable laws and regulations in its use of AI features.

3. Compliance with Laws: Customer Data Subjects’ Rights

3.1 In accordance with GDPR and other applicable laws and regulations, Customer, as the Controller of Personal Data processed using Scaleflex’ AI features, understands and acknowledges its requirement to fulfil Data Subjects’ requests related to assets uploaded by Customer and its end users. This includes providing Data Subjects with (i) clear and comprehensive information regarding how Personal Data is processed; (ii) access to Personal Data held by Customer, with the right to request corrections for any inaccuracies; (iii) the option to receive Personal Data in a standard electronic format; (v) the right to object to the processing of Personal Data by Customer and to prevent exclusive reliance on automated decision-making or profiling; (vi) the ability to impose restrictions on the processing of data subjects’ Personal Data or request its deletion by Customer; and (vii) the right to be informed about the sale or sharing of Personal Data as well as the opportunity to opt out.

3.2 Scaleflex, in accordance with GDPR and other applicable laws and regulations, will assist Customer in fulfilling Data Subjects’ access requests, as outlined in Section 3.1 above. Scaleflex will offer necessary support and information to enable the Customer to meet its obligations and ensure compliance with applicable regulations. Upon Customer's written request, Scaleflex may additionally provide Customer with the option to complete a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) pertaining to any AI features that may be connected to a Data Subject’s access request.

4. Security Requirements

Scaleflex shall maintain and frequently review policies for information security which include administrative, physical and technical safeguards required to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, availability and continuity of the Product.
