Each party will comply with Applicable Law as it relates to such party’s performance under the Agreement.
We will promptly notify you if we receive a request from a Data Subject to disclose, provide a copy, modify, block, or take any other action with respect to Personal Data pertaining to the Data Subject, unless notice is prohibited by Applicable Law; and, except to the extent required by Applicable Law, we will not independently take any action in response to a request from a Data Subject without your prior written instruction. We will cooperate with your reasonable requests for access to Personal Data and other information and assistance as necessary to respond to a request or complaint by a Data Subject.
In the event of a discovered or suspected Security Event, Kinsta shall provide notice without undue delay to Client’s technical and account contacts using those means established for routine account-related communications.

We will cooperate with your reasonable requests in connection with the investigation and analysis of the Security Event, including a request to use a third-party investigation and forensics service. Kinsta shall retain all information that could constitute evidence in a legal action arising from the Security Event and shall provide the information to you upon your request.
