2.2 We may on written notice amend the prices we charge for our Services to reflect any variation in the cost of supplying the Services.
2.3 You may increase or decrease your number of Users (any person with a current staff record in Tempora) at any time by email notice to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’.

8. Data 8.1 Both parties agree as follows:
Each party shall be responsible for its own compliance, and shall at all times comply, with all applicable data protection and privacy laws, rules and regulations, as may be updated from time to time, including, whilst they apply to Tempora or its Affiliates, the law of the EU (including the GDPR), the law of any EU member state and/or UK data protection laws (“Data Protection Laws”). This clause 6 is in addition to, and does not relieve, remove or replace a party’s obligations under Data Protection Laws. Personal data, data subject, controller, processor or processing have the meanings given in Data Processing Laws.
Where Tempora is a data processor, the Customer gives general written authorisation for the appointment by Tempora of any third party processor of personal data under the Agreement. Tempora shall inform the customer of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of any other processors, giving the Customer the opportunity to object to such changes. The Customer shall act reasonably in making any objection and the parties shall work in good faith to resolve the reasonable concerns of the Customer. Tempora shall enter into an agreement with the third-party processor incorporating those terms that are required to be included by Data Protection Laws. As between the parties, Tempora shall remain fully liable for all acts or omissions of any third-party processor appointed by it under this clause.
The Customer agrees, and shall procure that its Users and other representatives consent (in accordance with applicable Data Protection Laws), to the processing of personal data by Tempora (and its Affiliates, suppliers and subcontractors) and to the processing (including transfer) of personal data to and within the Data Hub Countries, in both cases only to the extent necessary to receive the benefit of the Services in accordance with the activity of its Users. Tempora will not process, transfer, export, use or disclose any personal data of the Users or obtained from the Customer outside the Data Hub Countries without the prior consent of the Customer.
