Exhibit B

Technical and Organisational Security Measures

The Processor utilises third party data centres to host the Genovo application and they maintain current ISO 27001 certifications and/or SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type II or SOC 2 Attestation Reports. The Processor will not utilise third party data centres that do not maintain the aforementioned certifications and/or attestations, or other substantially similar or equivalent certifications and/or attestations.

Upon the Controller’s written request (no more than once in any 12 month period), the Processor shall provide within a reasonable time, a copy of the most recently completed certification and/or attestation reports (to the extent that to do so does not prejudice the overall security of the Services).
Any audit report submitted to the Controller shall be treated as Confidential Information and subject to the confidentiality provisions of the Agreement between the parties.

The following descriptions provide an overview of the technical and organisational security measures implemented. It should be noted however that, in some circumstances, in order to protect the integrity of the security measures and in the context of data security, detailed descriptions may not be available, however additional information regarding technical and organisational measures may be found in the Security Policy. It’s acknowledged and agreed that the Security Policy and the technical
and organisational measures described therein will be updated and amended from time to time, at the sole discretion of the Processor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the technical and organisational
measures will not fall short of those measures described in the Security Policy in any material, detrimental way.

1. Entrance Control

The Processor’s EU based cloud provider conforms to ISO 27001 certifications and/or SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type II or SOC 2 to ensure secure entrance control.

All offices are locked when unsupervised to prevent unauthorised access to Personal Data.

2. System Access Control

The Processor’s EU based cloud provider conforms to ISO 27001 certifications and/or SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type II or SOC 2 to ensure secure system access control.

Following industry best practice the Processor utilises a centralised, role based authentication and access system which provides access to all key customer processing systems. This means that passwords are very strong and non-authorised staff do not have knowledge of them. When a staff
member leaves, they are simply removed from this system which removes their access from all systems that they were approved to access.

As per best practice all PCs are locked when unattended.

3. Data Access Control

Role based authorisation is extensively used throughout the organisation, and other applications used for processing Customer Data to implement “need-to-know” principles.

The Processor’s database is encrypted “at rest” and in addition implements column level encryption on Personal data.

4. Transmission Control

All Genovo application transmissions are encrypted.

The Genovo application is hosted within the EEA.

5. Data Entry Control

Technical and organisational measures regarding recording and monitoring of the circumstances of data entry to enable retroactive review.

System inputs are recorded in the form of log files therefore it is possible to review retroactively whether and by whom Personal Data was entered, altered or deleted.

6. Data Processing Control

Technical and organisational measures to differentiate between the competences of principal and contractor:

The aim of the data processing control is to provide that Personal Data is processed by a commissioned data processor in accordance with the Instructions of the principal.

Details regarding data processing control are set forth in the Agreement and the DPA.

7. Availability Control

The Genovo database is saved in triplicate to ensure availability. In addition the database is backed up at least every 4 hours and can be restored to at least any 4 hour point in the last 14 day period, using a mechanism of full, differential and database log backups

8. Separation Control

Technical and organisational measures regarding purposes of collection and separated processing:
Personal Data is used for internal purposes only e.g. as part of the respective customer relationship, may be transferred to a third party such as a subcontractor, solely under consideration of contractual arrangements and appropriate data protection regulatory requirements.

Employees are instructed to collect, process and use Personal Data only within the framework and for the purposes of their duties (e.g. service provision). At a technical level, multi-client capability includes separation of functions as well as appropriate separation of testing and production systems.

Customer Data is stored in a way that logically separates it from other customer’s data.

Genovo contains security mechanisms to ensure that users only have access to data that they are authorised to access

2. If a data subject is not able to bring a claim for compensation in accordance with paragraph 1 against the data exporter, arising out of a breach by the data importer or his subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11, because the data exporter has
factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or has become insolvent, the data importer agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data importer as if it were the data exporter, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter by
contract of by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The data importer may not rely on a breach by a subprocessor of its obligations in order to avoid its own liabilities.
3. If a data subject is not able to bring a claim against the data exporter or the data importer referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2, arising out of a breach by the subprocessor of any of their obligations referred to in Clause 3 or in Clause 11 because both the data exporter and the data importer
have factually disappeared or ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent, the subprocessor agrees that the data subject may issue a claim against the data subprocessor with regard to its own processing operations under the Standard Contractual Clauses as if it were the data
exporter or the data importer, unless any successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law, in which case the data subject can enforce its rights against such entity. The liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Standard Contractual Clauses.

Clause 7
Mediation and jurisdiction
1. The data importer agrees that if the data subject invokes against it third-party beneficiary rights and/or claims compensation for damages under the Standard Contractual Clauses, the data importer will accept the decision of the data subject:
(a) to refer the dispute to mediation, by an independent person or, where applicable, by the supervisory authority;
(b) to refer the dispute to the courts in the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
2. The parties agree that the choice made by the data subject will not prejudice its substantive or procedural rights to seek remedies in accordance with other provisions of national or international law.

Clause 8
Cooperation with supervisory authorities
1. The data exporter agrees to deposit a copy of this contract with the supervisory authority if it so requests or if such deposit is required under the applicable data protection law.
2. The parties agree that the supervisory authority has the right to conduct an audit of the data importer, and of any subprocessor, which has the same scope and is subject to the same conditions as would apply to an audit of the data exporter under the applicable data protection law.
3. The data importer shall promptly inform the data exporter about the existence of legislation applicable to it or any subprocessor preventing the conduct of an audit of the data importer, or any subprocessor, pursuant to paragraph 2. In such a case the data exporter shall be entitled to take the measures foreseen in Clause 5 (b).

Clause 9
Governing Law
The Standard Contractual Clauses shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.

Clause 10
Variation of the contract
The parties undertake not to vary or modify the Standard Contractual Clauses. This does not preclude the parties from adding clauses on business related issues where required as long as they do not contradict the Standard Contractual Clauses.

Clause 11
Subprocessing
1. The data importer shall not subcontract any of its processing operations performed on behalf of the data exporter under the Standard Contractual Clauses without the prior written consent of the data exporter. Where the data importer subcontracts its obligations under the Standard Contractual Clauses, with the consent of the data exporter, it shall do so only by way of a
written agreement with the subprocessor which imposes the same  obligations on the subprocessor as are imposed on the data importer under the Standard Contractual Clauses.
Where the subprocessor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations under such written agreement the data importer shall remain fully liable to the data exporter for the performance of the subprocessor's obligations under such agreement.
2. The prior written contract between the data importer and the subprocessor shall also provide for a third-party beneficiary clause as laid down in Clause 3 for cases where the data subject is not able to bring the claim for compensation referred to in paragraph 1 of Clause 6 against
the data exporter or the data importer because they have factually disappeared or have ceased to exist in law or have become insolvent and no successor entity has assumed the entire legal obligations of the data exporter or data importer by contract or by operation of law.
Such third-party liability of the subprocessor shall be limited to its own processing operations under the Standard Contractual Clauses.
3. The provisions relating to data protection aspects for subprocessing of the contract referred to in paragraph 1 shall be governed by the law of the Member State in which the data exporter is established.
4. The data exporter shall keep a list of subprocessing agreements concluded under the Standard Contractual Clauses and notified by the data importer pursuant to Clause 5 (j), which shall be updated at least once a year. The list shall be available to the data exporter's data
protection supervisory authority.

Clause 12
Obligation after the termination of personal data processing services
1. The parties agree that on the termination of the provision of data processing services, the data importer and the subprocessor shall, at the choice of the data exporter, return all the personal data transferred and the copies thereof to the data exporter or shall destroy all the personal
data and certify to the data exporter that it has done so, unless legislation imposed upon the data importer prevents it from returning or destroying all or part of the personal data transferred. In that case, the data importer warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data transferred and will not actively process the personal data transferred
anymore.
2. The data importer and the subprocessor warrant that upon request of the data exporter and/or of the supervisory authority, it will submit its data processing facilities for an audit of the measures referred to in paragraph 1.

Clause 13
Miscellaneous
1. These Standard Contractual Clauses take priority over any other agreement between the parties, whether entered into before or after the date these Standard Contractual Clauses are entered into.
2. Unless the Standard Contractual Clauses are expressly referred to and expressly amended, the parties do not intend that any other agreement entered into by the parties, before or after the date the Standard Contractual Clauses are entered into, will amend the terms or the effects
of the Standard Contractual Clauses, or limit any liability under the Standard Contractual Clauses, and no term of any such other agreement should be read or interpreted as having that effect.
3. The parties intend that these Standard Contractual Clauses should only become effective if Art 44 of the GDPR applies to a transfer of personal data from the EEA to the UK, because the UK has left the European Union, and the transfer is not permitted under Art 45 of the GDPR.
4. On that basis, the Standard Contractual Clauses will become effective on:
(a) the first date Article 44 GDPR applies to a transfer of personal data from the EEA to the UK, and that transfer is not permitted under Article 45 GDPR; or
(b) the date the parties enter into the DPA, if later.
5. In this clause, 'a transfer of personal data' has the same meaning as in Article 44 of the GDPR.
