12.1 Each Party shall comply with its respective obligations under Data Protection Legislation, and shall not undertake any action that would cause the other Party to breach any of the Data Protection Legislation obligations. In particular, the Customer shall ensure that: (i) all instructions given by it to Drawy in respect of the Hosted Data will be in compliance with applicable Data Protection Legislation; (ii) it has obtained all rights and permissions to process the Hosted Data outside the European Union and (iii) it has all required consents, licenses and approvals to use, disclose and/or transfer the personal data included in the Hosted Data.
