ApuTime, Ltd. (“ApuTime”) uses certain subprocessors and content delivery networks to assist it in providing the ApuTime Services as described in the Terms of Service (“Terms”). Defined terms used herein shall have the same meaning as defined in the Terms.
A subprocessor is a third party data processor engaged by ApuTime, who has or potentially will have access to or process Service Data (which may contain Personal Data). ApuTime engages different types of subprocessors to perform various functions as explained in the tables below. ApuTime refers to third parties that do not have access to or process Service Data but who are otherwise used to provide the Services as “subcontractors” and not subprocessors.
ApuTime undertakes to use a commercially reasonable selection process by which it evaluates the security, privacy and confidentiality practices of proposed subprocessors that will or may have access to or process Service Data.
ApuTime requires its subprocessors to satisfy equivalent obligations as those required from ApuTime (as a Data Processor) as set forth in ApuTime’s Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”), including but not limited to the requirements to:
If you are a ApuTime Subscriber and wish to enter into our DPA, please email us at email@example.com.
For all Subscribers who have executed ApuTime’s standard DPA, ApuTime will provide notice via this policy of updates to the list of subprocessors that are utilized or which ApuTime proposes to utilize to deliver its Services. ApuTime undertakes to keep this list updated regularly to enable its Subscribers to stay informed of the scope of subprocessing associated with the ApuTime Services.
Pursuant to the DPA, a Subscriber can object in writing to the processing of its Personal Data by a new subprocessor within thirty (30) days after updating of this policy and shall describe its legitimate reasons to object. If Subscriber does not object during such time period the new subprocessor(s) shall be deemed accepted.
If a Subscriber objects to the use of a subprocessor pursuant to the process provided under the DPA, ApuTime shall have the right to cure the objection through one of the following options (to be selected at ApuTime’s sole discretion):
(a) ApuTime will cease to use the subprocessor with regard to Personal Data;
(b) ApuTime will take the corrective steps requested by Subscriber in its objection (which remove Subscriber’s objection) and proceed to use the subprocessor to process Personal Data; or
(c) ApuTime may cease to provide or Subscriber may agree not to use (temporarily or permanently) the particular aspect of a ApuTime Service that would involve the use of the subprocessor to process Personal Data.
Termination rights, as applicable and agreed, are set forth exclusively in the DPA.
The following is an up-to-date list (as of the date of this policy) of the names and locations of ApuTime subprocessors and content delivery networks:

As explained above, ApuTime’s Services may use content delivery networks (“CDNs”) to provide the Services, for security purposes, and to optimize content delivery. CDNs do not have access to Service Data but are commonly used systems of distributed services that deliver content based on the geographic location of the individual accessing the content and the origin of the content provider.
