- process that Seller Personal Data only on the documented instructions of the Seller unless CAGP is required by Applicable Laws to otherwise process that Seller Personal Data (Purpose).

CAGP shall inform the Seller if, in the opinion of CAGP, the instructions of the Seller infringe Applicable Data Protection Laws;

For the purposes of this clause 10.6.6, Seller Personal Data shall be considered deleted where it is put beyond further use by CAGP; and
- maintain records to demonstrate its compliance with this clause 10.
- The Seller provides its prior, general authorisation for CAGP to:
- appoint processors to process the Seller Personal Data, provided that CAGP:

- transfer Seller Personal Data outside of the UK as required for the Purpose, provided that CAGP shall ensure that all such transfers are effected in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Laws. For these purposes, the Seller shall promptly comply with any reasonable request of CAGP, including any request to enter into standard data protection clauses adopted by the EU Commission from time to time (where the EU GDPR applies to the transfer) or adopted by the Commissioner from time to time (where the UK GDPR applies to the transfer).
