12.1 Each party (as “Receiving Party”) agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information it obtains from the other party (“Disclosing Party”) constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party (“ Confidential Information”), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the Receiving Party to be confidential or proprietary due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. Any Trimble Technology, performance information relating to the Service, and the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall be deemed Confidential Information of Trimble without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will (1) hold in confidence and not disclose any Confidential Information to third parties and (2) not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than fulfilling its obligations and exercising its rights under this Agreement. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors and other representatives having a legitimate need to know (including, for Trimble, the subcontractors referenced in Section 14.8), provided that such representatives are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective of the Disclosing Party than this Section 12 and that the Receiving Party remains responsible for compliance by any such representative with the terms of this Section 12. The Receiving Party’s nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document: (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information.

The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
13 Data Protection
13.1 This section 13.1 applies if You are a legal person. All applicable laws, rules, and regulations relating to the protection of privacy and data protection are referred to as “Data Protection Legislation”. “Personal Information” is defined as in the applicable Data Protection Legislation, or if no definition is provided, any personally identifiable information which is either (i) provided by You, or (ii) automatically collected through Trimble’s service on Your behalf. “Applicable”, in this context, means the Data Protection Legislation applicable to You at Your principal place of business or to Trimble at Trimble’s principal place of business, and such laws that Customer notifies Trimble in writing of that apply to the parties.
a) Each party will comply with all applicable requirements of the Data Protection Legislation that applies to it. This Section 13.1 is in addition to, and does not relieve, remove or replace, a party's obligations or rights under the applicable Data Protection Legislation.
b) The parties acknowledge that: (i) when performing its obligations under this Agreement, Trimble processes Personal Information on the Your behalf and (ii) the Personal Information may be transferred or stored, and/or accessed from outside of the country where Your principal place of business is located in order to provide the SaaS and Trimble's other obligations under this Agreement.
c) Without prejudice to the generality of Section 13.1 a), You will ensure that it has all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place (i) to enable lawful transfer of the personal information to Trimble for the duration and purposes of the Agreement and (ii) to enable Trimble to lawfully use, process and transfer the Personal Information in accordance with this Agreement, including on Your behalf.
d) If the processing of Personal Information by Trimble is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) or the Data Protection Act 2018 of the United Kingdom, then, in addition, at the request of Customer, then the parties will execute an applicable data processing addendum, see https://www.trimble.com/en/our-commitment/responsible-business/data-privacy-and-security/data-privacy-center?tab=privacy_notice .
13.2 CCPA. If the processing of Personal Information by Trimble is subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (Title 1.81.5, §1798.100 et. seq.) (“CCPA”), then in connection with a verified request by a data subject pursuant to an exercise of rights under CCPA related to Personal Information, Trimble is Customer’s service provider and Customer (and not Trimble) will respond to such request, and if necessary in connection with such verified request Customer will utilize the tools and information provided or made generally available by Trimble, such as Trimble’s online portals or APIs and standard documentation regarding Trimble’s products, software and services. To the extent such tools do not enable Customer to respond to a verified request, upon Customer’s request Trimble will provide reasonable assistance with respect to Personal information in Trimble’s systems that is required for Customer’s response to such request. A consumer request to delete Personal Information will not require Trimble to delete Personal Information required to provide Customer with the Product(s), which includes any of Trimble’s service provider(s) acting on Trimble’s behalf to provide the Product(s); provided, however, that such service provider(s) do not have a separate right to sell or use Customer’s Personal Information other than as required for Trimble’s business purposes.
