The Customer and the supervisory authority under the relevant data protection legislation shall be entitled to conduct audits, including on-premises inspections and evaluations of personal data being processed, the systems and equipment used for this purpose, implemented technical and organisational measures, including security policies and similar, and sub-processors.
