Transfer Risk Assessment
The Exporter has completed a transfer risk assessment (TRA). It has relied on the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology’s Analysis of the UK Extension to the EU-US data privacy framework published in September 2023 (the DSIT analysis). The Exporter is satisfied that the DSIT analysis concludes that US laws and practices provide adequate protections for people whose personal information is transferred to the US for risks to people’s rights: (i) arising in the US from third parties that are not bound by this IDTA accessing the transferred personal information in particular, government and public bodies; and (ii) arising from difficulties enforcing the IDTA. The Exporter considers that it is reasonable and proportionate for it to rely on the DSIT analysis, given the scope of this assessment is as required under Article 45 UK GDPR, and the enactment of adequacy regulations under Section 17A DPA 2018 by the Secretary of State and Parliament, on the basis of that assessment. The Exporter will review this TRA if a new or amended version of the DSIT analysis is published, or the DSIT analysis is withdrawn.

Schedule 5: Australia Annex


Hasura agrees to comply with the Australian Privacy Act when Processing Customer Personal Data, to the extent applicable to Hasura.
