5.2 The BL Images offered to Carrier-approved Customers by a requested INTTRA approved Carrier (“Carrier-Specific Services “) depend on, and are subject to, the BL Image permitted by each such specific Carrier. To the extent permitted by each individual Carrier, the BL Images offered may include but not be limited to the following: remote printing of Sea Waybills (“Waybills”);
remote printing of negotiable Bills of Lading (“Negotiable B/Ls”) Originals; remote printing of Negotiable B/Ls – copies; remote printing of non-Negotiable B/Ls – originals; remote printing of non-Negotiable B/Ls – copies; Customer authorization to sign Waybills as Agent for Carrier; Customer authorization to sign non-Negotiable B/Ls as Agent for Carrier; Customer authorization to sign Negotiable B/Ls as Agent for Carrier; and Customer authorization to print Waybills on Carrier paper stock. In their sole discretion, INTTRA and each Carrier may modify or change the BL Images provided to Customer from time to time.
5.3 Any Data accessed through INTTRA and/or a BL Image (a) do not constitute “Electronic Bills of Lading”, “paperless trading”, a “contract of carriage”, or a “contract of transport” (as those terms may be used generally in the shipping industry), (b) shall not be used to create unauthorized documents of any kind, including unauthorized bills of lading or Waybills, (c) have no commercial value in and of themselves, (d) may not be used to transfer by endorsement or otherwise the rights under a contract of carriage, and (e) may not be used for purposes of transferring ownership of cargo or as negotiable instruments. BL Image(s) merely provides an alternative method of exchanging Data electronically between Parties or “Allowed Parties” (defined below) to assist in the preparation of documents prior to actual issuance of traditional paper bills of lading or Waybills by the individual Carrier(s) or Carrier’s authorized agent. Although not necessarily printed by the Carrier, the Waybill or bill of lading to which the electronic data relates is issued by the Carrier. Only the Carrier and its authorized representatives and agents have authority to issue, sign, mark or alter any such document on behalf of the Carrier. Customer is authorized to remotely print such paper bill of lading or sea waybill in accordance with this Agreement but only if so specified and approved by the Carrier as a Carrier-Specific Service. Nothing in this Agreement constitutes an agreement to carry any goods or forms any part of a contract for the carriage of goods.
5.4 Once You are approved by (1) INTTRA, and (2) the individual Carrier(s) from which you have requested BL Image access, and your BL Image access is activated at INTTRA, you shall be permitted to view, print, request changes to, approve, and share Data supplied by the Parties directly or via Alliance Intermediary, if applicable, to the extent authorized by the Carrier and Section 5.5. This Agreement does not, by itself, grant to You any further right to access, copy, use, modify, sublicense, distribute, transfer or transmit any Data accessed on or through BL Image(s). Specifically, this Agreement does not, by itself, grant to You any right to sign any bill of lading or Waybill on behalf of Carrier(s), unless the specific Carrier has authorized You to sign such bill of lading or Waybill as agent for the Carrier. Customer shall ensure that any bill of lading or Waybill is printed at Customer’s printer as soon as reasonably practicable onto Carrier’s paper stock as appropriate or, in the case of a Waybill, if and as permitted by the individual Carrier, onto good quality plain white paper consistent with relevant Carrier’s requirements. Customer shall ensure that any bill of lading or Waybill once printed is (a) legible, showing the complete contents of the document without distortion or addition in correctly centered portrait orientation, (b) is appropriately aligned and set out for the relevant paper size, and (c) accurately reflects the relevant Data supplied by the Parties as well as any additional information supplied by Allowed Parties or any third party. If any document which is printed (whether or not in full) pursuant to this Agreement does not comply with any part of Section 5.4 above, or if any electronic data is made available to the Customer in error, the Customer shall immediately contact the Carrier and comply with said Carrier’s instructions in relation thereto. If there is any inconsistency between a Waybill or bill of lading that is printed and the latest document available in electronic form at www.inttra.com, the latter shall prevail. A Carrier’s paper stock shall remain the property of that particular Carrier until printed and executed pursuant to this Agreement. The Customer shall make no alteration to the individual Carrier’s paper stock and unconditionally guarantees the secure and safe keeping of such Carrier’s paper stock to prevent release to any third party or the unauthorized or unlawful use of such Carrier’s paper stock by the Customer, its employees, agents or any third party. Customer shall report immediately to INTTRA and the relevant Carrier(s) any breach or suspected breach of security, including, but not limited to, loss or theft of Carrier’s paper stock, even if temporary. Customer shall acknowledge receipt of Carrier’s paper stock, indicating the exact quantity received. Customer shall also maintain an inventory of Carrier’s paper stock, including the serial number of each, whether actually used or wasted, and supply such inventory records to the relevant Carrier upon its request. Customer shall ensure that the number of attempts to print an original bill of lading does not exceed the number of originals shown on the face of the bill of lading as having been issued. If for technical reasons (for example, difficulties in printing) more attempts to print are required, the express prior written authority of the Carrier must be obtained. This will be at the Carrier’s absolute discretion, which in any event will be conditional on (a) the Carrier receiving a letter of indemnity, signed by the Customer, in the terms provided by or agreed with the Carrier, and (b) any paper document which is to be replaced pursuant to such authority having first been destroyed.

The term of this Agreement shall continue unless terminated in accordance with this Section 22. Either Party may terminate this Agreement: (i) for any reason upon thirty (30) days’ notice to the other Party; provided that if Customer has purchased a subscription Service then the terms of the applicable Service Order and associated terms (e.g. a Product-Specific Attachment) shall control and govern and this subsection (i) shall be inapplicable for such Service; (ii) if the other Party breaches any material term or condition of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within 30 days after receipt of written notice of same; (iii) if the other Party becomes the subject of a voluntary petition in bankruptcy or any voluntary proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation, or composition for the benefit of creditors; or (iv) if the other Party becomes the subject of an involuntary petition in bankruptcy or any involuntary proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation, or composition for the benefit of creditors, if such petition or proceeding is not dismissed within sixty (60) days of filing.

THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT MONETARY DAMAGES WOULD BE BOTH INCALCULABLE AND AN INSUFFICIENT REMEDY FOR ANY BREACH OF THE SECTIONS IDENTIFIED IN THE FIRST SENTENCE OF THIS PARAGRAPH BY CUSTOMER AND THAT ANY SUCH BREACH WOULD CAUSE INTTRA IRREPARABLE HARM. ACCORDINGLY, CUSTOMER ALSO AGREES THAT IN THE EVENT OF ANY BREACH OR ANTICIPATED BREACH OF THESE SECTIONS, INTTRA, IN ADDITION TO ANY OTHER REMEDIES AT LAW OR IN EQUITY IT MAY HAVE, SHALL BE ENTITLED TO SEEK EQUITABLE RELIEF, INCLUDING INJUNCTIVE RELIEF AND SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE, WITHOUT THE REQUIREMENT OF POSTING BOND OR OTHER SECURITY.

- Provide true, accurate, current, and complete Personal Data as prompted by the Service processes.
- Maintain and promptly update the Personal Data to keep it accurate, current, and complete.

Examples of such fields include Name, Phone Number, Address, etc. INTTRA will only monitor these fields as it relates to Personal Data rights and regulations. INTTRA will not monitor fields for compliance with data protection laws that are not clearly intended to contain Personal Data (for example, Cargo Description). INTTRA will disclose fields not clearly intended to contain Personal Data to third parties, such as to a Carrier, without identifying them as containing Personal Data and if You insert Personal Data in such fields it may be further disclosed (including by publication or public display) to other third parties, such as in customs filings.

24.4 For the purposes of the Standard Contractual Clauses the parties agree that (i) the Customer is the Data Exporter and (ii) INTTRA is the Data Importer.

25.2 No right or license under this Agreement may be assigned or otherwise transferred by Customer without INTTRA’s prior written consent. The foregoing notwithstanding, upon written notice to INTTRA, Customer may assign, or otherwise transfer this Agreement to any Affiliate which Controls, is Controlled by, or is under common Control with Customer, or to the surviving entity as a result of a merger, acquisition or reorganization of all or substantially all of Customer’s assets or stock provided such entity is not deemed by INTTRA to be a direct competitor of INTTRA and agrees in writing it will be bound by the Terms of this Agreement.

Carrier(s) may enforce any such rights without joining INTTRA to such enforcement action. Nothing in this Agreement or the relationships created by it shall be construed to make or constitute INTTRA as an agent, servant, employee or partner of either Customer, Affiliate(s) or any Carrier(s).

25.6 The waiver by either Party of a breach or right under this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent breach or right. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement will be effective unless it is in a signed writing, and no such waiver will constitute a waiver of any other provision(s) or of the same provision on another occasion.
25.7 If any provision of this Agreement shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, that provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent allowed by law, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
25.8 References in this Agreement to “notice in writing” or “written notice” or other similar reference shall not include electronic or email notice and only hard copy writings are acceptable.

25.9 Each Party agrees to bear its own costs relating to the Services, including, but not limited to, costs associated with support, maintenance, testing, interface development, and EDI mapping. The Parties are independent contractors acting for their own account, and neither party is authorized to make any representation or commitment on behalf of the other. This Agreement shall not be construed as creating a partnership, joint venture, franchise, agency, or similar relationship between the Parties.
25.10 This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws rules.

26. Force Majeure
INTTRA shall not be liable for delays or failures in its performance to the extent such failures or delays result from acts beyond INTTRA’s reasonable control, including, but not limited to, fire, flood, earthquake, elements of nature or acts of God, acts of war, terrorism, strikes, walkouts, riots, civil disorders, rebellions, quarantines, epidemics, embargoes or other similar governmental action.

Standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data from the European Community to third countries (controller to controller transfers (based on Commission Decision C9(2004) 5721)
For the purposes of the clauses:
(a) “personal data”, “special categories of data/sensitive data”, “process/processing”, “controller”, “processor”, “data subject” and “supervisory authority/authority” shall have the same meaning as in Directive 95/46/EC of 24 October 1995 (whereby “the authority” shall mean the competent data protection authority in the territory in which the data exporter is established);
(b) “the data exporter” shall mean the controller who transfers the personal data;
(c) “the data importer” shall mean the controller who agrees to receive from the data exporter personal data for further processing in accordance with the terms of these clauses and who is not subject to a third country's system ensuring adequate protection;
(d) “clauses” shall mean these contractual clauses, which are a free-standing document that does not incorporate commercial business terms established by the parties under separate commercial arrangements.
The details of the transfer (as well as the personal data covered) are specified in Annex B, which forms an integral part of the clauses.
I. Obligations of the data exporter
The data exporter warrants and undertakes that:
- The personal data have been collected, processed and transferred in accordance with the laws applicable to the data exporter.
- It has used reasonable efforts to determine that the data importer is able to satisfy its legal obligations under these clauses.
- It will provide the data importer, when so requested, with copies of relevant data protection laws or references to them (where relevant, and not including legal advice) of the country in which the data exporter is established.
- It will respond to enquiries from data subjects and the authority concerning processing of the personal data by the data importer, unless the parties have agreed that the data importer will so respond, in which case the data exporter will still respond to the extent reasonably possible and with the information reasonably available to it if the data importer is unwilling or unable to respond. Responses will be made within a reasonable time.
- It will make available, upon request, a copy of the clauses to data subjects who are third-party beneficiaries under clause III, unless the clauses contain confidential information, in which case it may remove such information. Where information is removed, the data exporter shall inform data subjects in writing of the reason for removal and of their right to draw the removal to the attention of the authority. However, the data exporter shall abide by a decision of the authority regarding access to the full text of the clauses by data subjects, as long as data subjects have agreed to respect the confidentiality of the confidential information removed. The data exporter shall also provide a copy of the clauses to the authority where required.
II. Obligations of the data importer
The data importer warrants and undertakes that:
- It will have in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, and which provide a level of security appropriate to the risk represented by the processing and the nature of the data to be protected.
- It will have in place procedures so that any third party it authorises to have access to the personal data, including processors, will respect and maintain the confidentiality and security of the personal data. Any person acting under the authority of the data importer, including a data processor, shall be obligated to process the personal data only on instructions from the data importer. This provision does not apply to persons authorised or required by law or regulation to have access to the personal data.
- It has no reason to believe, at the time of entering into these clauses, in the existence of any local laws that would have a substantial adverse effect on the guarantees provided for under these clauses, and it will inform the data exporter (which will pass such notification on to the authority where required) if it becomes aware of any such laws.
- It will process the personal data for purposes described in Annex B, and has the legal authority to give the warranties and fulfil the undertakings set out in these clauses.
- It will identify to the data exporter a contact point within its organisation authorised to respond to enquiries concerning processing of the personal data, and will cooperate in good faith with the data exporter, the data subject and the authority concerning all such enquiries within a reasonable time. In case of legal dissolution of the data exporter, or if the parties have so agreed, the data importer will assume responsibility for compliance with the provisions of clause I (e).
- At the request of the data exporter, it will provide the data exporter with evidence of financial resources sufficient to fulfil its responsibilities under clause III (which may include insurance coverage).
- Upon reasonable request of the data exporter, it will submit its data processing facilities, data files and documentation needed for processing to reviewing, auditing and/or certifying by the data exporter (or any independent or impartial inspection agents or auditors, selected by the data exporter and not reasonably objected to by the data importer) to ascertain compliance with the warranties and undertakings in these clauses, with reasonable notice and during regular business hours. The request will be subject to any necessary consent or approval from a regulatory or supervisory authority within the country of the data importer, which consent or approval the data importer will attempt to obtain in a timely fashion.
- It will process the personal data in accordance with the data processing principles set forth in Annex A.
- It will not disclose or transfer the personal data to a third party data controller located outside the European Economic Area (EEA) unless it notifies the data exporter about the transfer and
- the third party data controller processes the personal data in accordance with a Commission decision finding that a third country provides adequate protection, or
- the third party data controller becomes a signatory to these clauses or another data transfer agreement approved by a competent authority in the EU, or
- data subjects have been given the opportunity to object, after having been informed of the purposes of the transfer, the categories of recipients and the fact that the countries to which data is exported may have different data protection standards, or
- with regard to onward transfers of sensitive data, data subjects have given their unambiguous consent to the onward transfer
III. Liability and third party rights
- Each party shall be liable to the other parties for damages it causes by any breach of these clauses. Liability as between the parties is limited to actual damage suffered. Punitive damages (i.e. damages intended to punish a party for its outrageous conduct) are specifically excluded. Each party shall be liable to data subjects for damages it causes by any breach of third party rights under these clauses. This does not affect the liability of the data exporter under its data protection law.
- The parties agree that a data subject shall have the right to enforce as a third party beneficiary this clause and clauses I(b), I(d), I(e), II(a), II(c), II(d), II(e), II(h), II(i), III(a), V, VI(d) and VII against the data importer or the data exporter, for their respective breach of their contractual obligations, with regard to his personal data, and accept jurisdiction for this purpose in the data exporter's country of establishment. In cases involving allegations of breach by the data importer, the data subject must first request the data exporter to take appropriate action to enforce his rights against the data importer; if the data exporter does not take such action within a reasonable period (which under normal circumstances would be one month), the data subject may then enforce his rights against the data importer directly. A data subject is entitled to proceed directly against a data exporter that has failed to use reasonable efforts to determine that the data importer is able to satisfy its legal obligations under these clauses (the data exporter shall have the burden to prove that it took reasonable efforts).
IV. Law applicable to the clauses
These clauses shall be governed by the law of the country in which the data exporter is established.
V. Resolution of disputes with data subjects or the authority
- In the event of a dispute or claim brought by a data subject or the authority concerning the processing of the personal data against either or both of the parties, the parties will inform each other about any such disputes or claims, and will cooperate with a view to settling them amicably in a timely fashion.
- The parties agree to respond to any generally available non-binding mediation procedure initiated by a data subject or by the authority. If they do participate in the proceedings, the parties may elect to do so remotely (such as by telephone or other electronic means). The parties also agree to consider participating in any other arbitration, mediation or other dispute resolution proceedings developed for data protection disputes.
- Each party shall abide by a decision of a competent court of the data exporter's country of establishment or of the authority which is final and against which no further appeal is possible.
- In the event that the data importer is in breach of its obligations under these clauses, then the data exporter may temporarily suspend the transfer of personal data to the data importer until the breach is repaired or the contract is terminated.
- In the event that:
- the transfer of personal data to the data importer has been temporarily suspended by the data exporter for longer than one month pursuant to paragraph (a);
- compliance by the data importer with these clauses would put it in breach of its legal or regulatory obligations in the country of import;
- the data importer is in substantial or persistent breach of any warranties or undertakings given by it under these clauses;
- a final decision against which no further appeal is possible of a competent court of the data exporter's country of establishment or of the authority rules that there has been a breach of the clauses by the data importer or the data exporter; or
- a petition is presented for the administration or winding up of the data importer, whether in its personal or business capacity, which petition is not dismissed within the applicable period for such dismissal under applicable law; a winding up order is made; a receiver is appointed over any of its assets; a trustee in bankruptcy is appointed, if the data importer is an individual; a company voluntary arrangement is commenced by it; or any equivalent event in any jurisdiction occurs
- then the data exporter, without prejudice to any other rights which it may have against the data importer, shall be entitled to terminate these clauses, in which case the authority shall be informed where required. In cases covered by (i), (ii), or (iv) above the data importer may also terminate these clauses.
- Either party may terminate these clauses if (i) any Commission positive adequacy decision under Article 25(6) of Directive 95/46/EC (or any superseding text) is issued in relation to the country (or a sector thereof) to which the data is transferred and processed by the data importer, or (ii) Directive 95/46/EC (or any superseding text) becomes directly applicable in such country.
- The parties agree that the termination of these clauses at any time, in any circumstances and for whatever reason (except for termination under clause VI(c)) does not exempt them from the obligations and/or conditions under the clauses as regards the processing of the personal data transferred.
VII. Variation of these clauses
- The parties may not modify these clauses except to update any information in Annex B, in which case they will inform the authority where required. This does not preclude the parties from adding additional commercial clauses where required.
VIII. Description of the Transfer
The details of the transfer and of the personal data are specified in Annex B. The parties agree that Annex B may contain confidential business information which they will not disclose to third parties, except as required by law or in response to a competent regulatory or government agency, or as required under clause I (e). The parties may execute additional annexes to cover additional transfers, which will be submitted to the authority where required. Annex B may, in the alternative, be drafted to cover multiple transfers.
DATA PROCESSING PRINCIPLES
Personal data may be processed and subsequently used or further communicated only for purposes described in Annex B or subsequently authorised by the data subject.
Data quality and proportionality:
Personal data must be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date. The personal data must be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purposes for which they are transferred and further processed.
Data subjects must be provided with information necessary to ensure fair processing (such as information about the purposes of processing and about the transfer), unless such information has already been given by the data exporter.
Security and confidentiality:
Technical and organisational security measures must be taken by the data controller that are appropriate to the risks, such as against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, presented by the processing. Any person acting under the authority of the data controller, including a processor, must not process the data except on instructions from the data controller.
Rights of access, rectification, deletion and objection:
As provided in Article 12 of Directive 95/46/EC, data subjects must, whether directly or via a third party, be provided with the personal information about them that an organisation holds, except for requests which are manifestly abusive, based on unreasonable intervals or their number or repetitive or systematic nature, or for which access need not be granted under the law of the country of the data exporter. Provided that the authority has given its prior approval, access need also not be granted when doing so would be likely to seriously harm the interests of the data importer or other organisations dealing with the data importer and such interests are not overridden by the interests for fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. The sources of the personal data need not be identified when this is not possible by reasonable efforts, or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated. Data subjects must be able to have the personal information about them rectified, amended, or deleted where it is inaccurate or processed against these principles. If there are compelling grounds to doubt the legitimacy of the request, the organisation may require further justifications before proceeding to rectification, amendment or deletion. Notification of any rectification, amendment or deletion to third parties to whom the data have been disclosed need not be made when this involves a disproportionate effort. A data subject must also be able to object to the processing of the personal data relating to him if there are compelling legitimate grounds relating to his particular situation. The burden of proof for any refusal rests on the data importer, and the data subject may always challenge a refusal before the authority.
The data importer shall take such additional measures (e.g. relating to security) as are necessary to protect such sensitive data in accordance with its obligations under clause II.
Data used for marketing purposes:
Where data are processed for the purposes of direct marketing, effective procedures should exist allowing the data subject at any time to “opt-out” from having his data used for such purposes.
For purposes hereof “automated decision” shall mean a decision by the data exporter or the data importer which produces legal effects concerning a data subject or significantly affects a data subject and which is based solely on automated processing of personal data intended to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to him, such as his performance at work, creditworthiness, reliability, conduct, etc. The data importer shall not make any automated decisions concerning data subjects, except when:
(i) such decisions are made by the data importer in entering into or performing a contract with the data subject, and
(ii) (the data subject is given an opportunity to discuss the results of a relevant automated decision with a representative of the parties making such decision or otherwise to make representations to that parties.
Or where otherwise provided by the law of the data exporter.
