The Customer is obliged to ensure that the Customer’s use of the Service (i) is not in conflict with any applicable laws and regulations; and (ii) is not prohibited or restricted under the Customer’s agreements or arrangements with its suppliers or other third parties.
The Customer is responsible for all damage that Parsly may be caused due to the Customer’s use of the Service and for breach of any provision of the Customer Agreement, and undertakes to pay and hold Parsly indemnified from all claims that may be directed against Parsly as a result. The Customer shall also reimburse Parsly for all costs, of whatever kind, which may arise in connection with such a claim being directed at Parsly.
5. PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
5.1 The documents and information that Parsly handles on behalf of the Customer in connection with Parsly’s provision of the Service may contain personal information in the form of names and contact information for representatives of companies and organizations with which the Customer has business relations. This will mainly be relevant in the event that the invoices handled by Parsly contain information about the contact person/invoice reference. The Customer and Parsly agree that the Customer is the personal data controller and Parsly personal data assistant for such processing and that this section 5 shall be deemed to constitute the parties’ personal data assistant agreement in accordance with Article 28 (3) GDPR.
5.2 Parsly undertakes to only process personal data in accordance with the Customer’s documented instructions, to the least possible extent, and only to be able to provide the Service to the Customer and fulfill its obligations under Customer Agreement.

The measures shall provide an appropriate level of security, taking into account (i) the technical possibilities available, (ii) the cost of implementing the measures; (iii) the specific risks involved in the processing of personal data; and iv) the sensitivity of the processed personal data. Furthermore, by taking appropriate technical and organizational measures, Parsly shall assist the Customer in fulfilling its obligations to the data subjects and assist the Customer in ensuring that the obligations under Articles 32 – 36 GDPR are fulfilled.
5.5 Parsly shall provide the Customer with access to all information required to demonstrate that the obligations set out in Article 28 GDPR have been fulfilled and to enable and contribute to audits and inspections performed by the Customer or by another auditor appointed by the Customer.
5.6 When Parsly’s processing of personal data in accordance with these General Terms and Conditions ceases, Parsly shall, depending on what the Customer chooses, delete or return those of the Customer’s personal data that Parsly then has in its possession and delete any copies unless storage of personal data is required by other mandatory legislation.
5.7 By accepting these General Terms and Conditions, the Customer grants a general approval for Parsly to hire sub-assistants. Parsly shall inform the Customer of its intentions to hire a new one or replace a sub-assistant, so that the Customer has the opportunity to object to such a change. In the event that the Customer wishes to make an objection, the objection and the reasons therefor must be received by Parsly within 14 days of the change being notified by Parsly, whereby the parties shall jointly seek a consensual solution.
6.1 Force majeure
Parsly is not responsible for damage or deficiencies in the Service that may be assumed to be based on force majeure or similar circumstances. Parsly is thus released from liability to the Customer if Parsly is prevented from fulfilling its obligations due to circumstances beyond Parsly’s control or ability and which Parsly could not reasonably be expected to foresee when providing the Service to the Customer or when the Customer uses the Service and whose consequences Parsly does not reasonably could have avoided or overcome; or if Parsly is prevented from fulfilling its obligations due to a circumstance attributable to a third party or due to a natural disaster, pandemic, lightning, power outage, labor dispute, war or other unrest, fire, government regulation or other public regulation, failure of external telecommunications, public lack of communication services to or within the network, or similar circumstances.

Parsly has always the right to transfer the right to payments from the Customer to third parties.
Parsly’s failure to exercise any right under the Customer Agreement or failure to point out a certain circumstance attributable to the use of the Service or the Customer Agreement shall not mean that Parsly has waived its right in such respect.
6.4 Contact and messages
6.4.1 All notices to Parsly shall be made in writing via letter to the address registered in the Companies Register, or to the e-mail address specified on Parsly’s website www.parsly.com.

6.6 Amendments of Customer Agreement and General Terms and Conditions
Parsly has the right to unilaterally change and add terms to the Customer Agreement and the General Terms and Conditions (including the right to charge for the Service and introduce additional terms when launching add-on modules in the Service). Changes and additions take effect one (1) month after they have been notified to the Customer and the Customer is hereby reminded of the possibility the Customer has to always be able to terminate the Service in accordance with section 3.2.2 above if the Customer finds that such changes and/or additions cannot be accepted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Parsly always has the right, without obligation to notify the Customer and with immediate effect, to change and add terms to the Customer Agreement and the General Terms and Conditions which are of an editorial nature and/or which do not entail any disadvantage for the Customer.
7. DISPUTE AND GOVERNING LAW
Disputes that arise in connection with the use of the Service and/or in connection with the Customer Agreement shall be tried by a Swedish general court with Stockholm District Court as the first instance. Swedish law shall be applied without regard to its choice of law principles.
