Confidential Information may include, but is not limited to: (a) documents, records, communications, reports, forecasts, projections, product and service specifications, risk management strategies, regulatory matters and related strategies, formulae and algorithms, designs, pricing methods and policies, processes, methods of operation, techniques, procedures, tools, business opportunities and strategies, proposals, personnel information, policies, trade secrets, ideas, concepts, know-how, intangible rights, inventions, research and development, source code, systems, architecture, computer programs and database technologies, proprietary programs or initiatives, and such other trade secrets or information as may be supplied by or on behalf of the Disclosing Party and which is not generally ascertainable from public or published information; (b) non-public business, operational or financial results and projections, product development initiatives, expansion plans and revenue and expense information; and (c) information which a reasonable person should know is confidential.

Both parties shall maintain as confidential and shall not disclose (except to those Affiliates, employees, attorneys, accountants and other advisors, agents or subcontractors (“Representatives”) on a need-to-know basis and who have in turn been advised of and are bound by confidentiality obligations consistent with this Agreement), copy, or use for purposes other than in connection with performance of this Agreement, the other party’s Confidential Information.

11.1.2 Philips will only have obligations and liability for a Claim caused solely by the infringement of a third party’s (and not an Affiliate of Client) intellectual property rights solely by the HSDP Platform where there are no obligations or liability for infringement by combinations of the HSDP Platform with any other product, service, software, data or method not supplied by Philips, including any third party content (not owned by Philips) that may be accessible on the Platform.

Either party may terminate this Agreement on written notice to the other party if such event continues more than 30 thirty (30) days.
13.3 Governing Law.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts without reference to the conflict of laws provisions thereof and, for avoidance of doubt, without reference to the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods. For any disputes relating to the interpretation, execution or enforcement of this Agreement or arising from the dealings between Philips, Client and any third parties under this Agreement shall be dealt with under the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the parties irrevocably submit for all purposes to the jurisdiction of each such court.
The parties will attempt to resolve any dispute related to this Agreement through good faith and informal negotiations.

If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute through negotiation, the parties will select a mutually agreed mediator in a mutually agreed location to attempt to resolve the dispute. In the event of any adjudication of any dispute under this Agreement, the prevailing party in such action may seek to recover reimbursement of its attorneys’ fees and related costs by the other party.
13.5 Independent Contractors.
Client and Philips are independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to create any agency, employee-employer relationship, partnership, or joint venture between the parties. Each party will be solely responsible for all of its employees and agents and its labor costs and expenses arising in connection therewith and for any and all claims, liabilities or damages or debts of any type whatsoever that may arise on account of its activities, or those of its employees or agents, in the performance of this Agreement. Neither party will have or represent that such party has the right, power or authority to bind, contract or commit the other party or to create any obligation on behalf of the other party.
Any notice or consent required or permitted to be given under this Agreement will be given in writing to the party at the address specified in this Agreement by personal delivery, certified mail, return receipt requested, or by overnight delivery and will be effective upon receipt. Notices to Philips should be sent to the attention of its General Counsel. Email notices shall not suffice under this Section.
If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of law or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the legality, validity, and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected or impaired thereby and the illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary such that it is legal, valid, and enforceable and accomplishes the intention of the parties to the fullest extent possible, and, in any event, the remainder of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
13.8 Modification and Waivers.
No modification or amendment to this Agreement, nor any waiver of any rights, will be effective unless consented to in a writing signed by both parties. Any waiver of any breach or default by either party will not constitute a waiver of any other right or any subsequent breach or default. Failure or delay by either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision.
13.9 Export Law Compliance.
Client shall comply with all applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations, including the Export Administration Regulations maintained by the United States Department of Commerce, in performing this Agreement. Client shall not, directly or indirectly, sell, export, re-export, transfer, divert, or otherwise dispose of any software, source code, or technology (including products derived from or based on such technology) received from or made available by Philips under this Agreement to any country (or national thereof) subject to antiterrorism controls or U.S. embargo, or to any other person, entity, or destination prohibited by the laws or regulations of the United States, without obtaining prior authorization from the competent government authorities as required by those laws and regulations. Client agrees to indemnify, to the fullest extent permitted by law, Philips from and against any fines or penalties that may arise as a result of Client’s breach of this provision.
13.10 Equitable Remedies.
Each party acknowledges that a breach of its obligations under this Agreement could cause irreparable harm to the other party and that monetary damages may be difficult to ascertain. Therefore, without prejudice to the rights and remedies otherwise available to it, each party shall be entitled to receive relief by way of injunction or specific performance in any court of competent jurisdiction without the need of posting a bond or other security.
13.11 No Third Party Beneficiaries.
This Agreement is made and entered into for the sole protection and benefit of the parties hereto, and no other person or entity shall be a direct or indirect beneficiary of, or shall have any direct or indirect cause of action or claim in connection with this Agreement, including any Affiliate of any party.
13.12 Remedies Cumulative.
The enumeration herein of specific remedies shall not be exclusive of any other remedies. Any delay or failure by any party to this Agreement to exercise any right, power, remedy or privilege herein contained, or now or hereafter existing under any applicable statute or law, shall not be construed to be a waiver of such right, power, remedy or privilege, nor to limit the exercise of such right, power, remedy, or privilege, nor shall it preclude the further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power, remedy or privilege.
13.13 Entire Agreement.
This Agreement, together with the Acceptable use Policy, the API Terms, the Philips Policies, and each Service Order and Statement of Work, supersedes all prior and contemporaneous proposals, statements, sales materials or presentations and agreements, oral and written relating to the subject matter of this Agreement. If a provision in the main body of this Agreement directly conflicts with a provision in a Service Order or Statement of Work, the conflicting provision in the Service Order or Statement of Work will supersede for purposes of such Service Order or Statement of Work only; provided, however, that no Service Order may supersede the provisions of Section 11 (Indemnification) or Section 12 (Limitation of Liability). No oral or written information or advice given by Philips, its agents or employees will create a warranty or in any way increase the scope of the warranties in this Agreement. There will be no force or effect to any different or additional terms of any related purchase order or similar form even if signed by the parties, and terms on a purchase order, payment document, or other document submitted by Client shall be void and have no force or effect.
Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
These API Terms are made pursuant to that certain Philips HSDP Master Subscription Agreement entered into by and between Philips and Client (“Agreement”). Capitalized terms used but not defined in these API Terms have the meanings ascribed to them in the Agreement.
“API Key” means the unique string identifying each Client Application and/or Client as a user of an API, assigned by Philips to Client in Philips’ discretion, to enable Client to access and/or use such API. The API Key may include separate “keys” for development purposes (each a
“Development Key”) and production purposes (each a “Production Key”), and/or other unique identifier(s) assigned by Philips to each Client Application and/or Client.
“API Marks” means the trade names, trademarks, service marks and associated logos of Philips.
“API Materials” means any and all of the API, the API Key, and the Specifications (including any copies, portions, extracts and derivatives thereof) and any related materials (excluding the API Marks) made available by or on behalf of Philips to Client pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise in connection with the API.
“HealthSuite Data” means any data, content, materials and other information (including accompanying metadata) that at any time is transmitted to or from, stored on, or accessible through the HSDP Platform, or is otherwise made available by Philips to Client in connection with the HSDP Platform.
“Profile” means a defined category specified by Philips with which User Data may be associated.
“Specifications” means any specifications and documentation related to the API that Philips may make available from time to time in its discretion, and includes any software code (other than the API Key) that Philips may make available specifically for the purpose of enabling a Client Application to access or use the API or to permit a Client Application to interface with the HSDP Platform (for example, code to be embedded in a Client Application to facilitate communication through the API or with the HSDP Platform).
“User Data” means any HealthSuite Data collected from Users (whether by Philips, Client or third parties), including any such data that identifies or can be used to identify an individual.
1. API License.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement and the Specifications, Philips grants to Client a limited, revocable, nonexclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-assignable right, solely while this Agreement is in effect: (a) to access and use the API Materials owned by Philips (the “HSDP API Materials”) solely to develop Client Applications for such purposes as may be: (i) set forth in the Specifications and/or any Service Order or Statement of work and/or (ii) communicated by Philips in writing from time to time in its discretion (such development activities, “Development”) and (b) to use the API Key that may be generated, activated and provided to Client by Philips, in Philips’ discretion, solely to access an applicable API owned by Philips (an “HSDP API”) as made available to Client by Philips, or to permit Client Applications to interface with the HSDP Platform, solely as described in the Specifications and/or any Service Order or Statement of Work. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Client’s rights in and to any API Materials owned by third parties are limited to the rights granted to Client by such third parties. API Keys may be subject to activation, suspension and/or deactivation by Philips to ensure usage consistent with this Agreement and all applicable requirements, and for any other reason in Philips’ discretion. API Materials and HealthSuite Data (including User Data and other personal or personally identifiable information) constitute Confidential Information of Philips. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, nothing in Section 10 of the Agreement (Confidentiality) shall apply to the extent that it would constitute a control over the end use of any HealthSuite Data supplied by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and transmitted to Client using an HHS API.
2. Application Integration Environment.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Client may only conduct Development authorized by this Agreement against Philips’ designated application integration environment, as made available by Philips to Client for such purposes (such environment, the “AIE”). Client may not conduct Development against any production version of the HSDP Platform, or otherwise in Philips’ production environment. If Philips provides Client with a Development Key, Client may use only such Development Key (and not any Production Key) in connection with any Development. Client may not use, request, receive, provide or transmit any HealthSuite Data or any other “live” data (including Client Data and any real credit card or other payment information or any other personal or personally identifiable information) in connection with any Development or the AIE.
3. Client Application Submission.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Client shall submit all Client Applications to Philips prior to any use of such Client Application (or any related API Key or other API Materials) with the HSDP Platform or otherwise in Philips’ production environment. By submitting a Client Application to Philips, Client represents and warrants that such Client Application complies with this Agreement and the Specifications and, if applicable, a Service Order or Statement of Work. Client shall not hide, misrepresent or obscure any features, content, services or functionality in such Client Application. Philips shall have the right (but not the obligation) to review and test such Client Application, and reserves the right to delay the activation of any API Key for such Client Application until the completion of any such review and testing. Client shall provide any materials, data and other information as may be requested by Philips to confirm that such Client Application complies with this Agreement and the Specifications and, if applicable, the applicable Service Order or Statement of work. Philips may reject any Client Application for any reason and at any time (including at any time after the activation of an API Key for such Client Application), in its sole discretion. Upon any change to a Client Application or any API Materials that affect a Client Application, Client shall resubmit such Client Application to Philips pursuant to this Section 3.
Client may use only those API Materials that are provided by Philips to Client. Client may not use any key or means of access to the API other than the API Key provided by Philips to Client. Client may not permit or enable any third party to use or access any API Materials. Except as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement, Client will not, and Client will not permit or enable a Client Application or any third party to: (a) use any API Materials for any purpose or in any manner other than expressly permitted in Section 1 of these API Terms; (b) rent, sell, lease, lend, convey, redistribute or otherwise provide any third party with access to any API Materials; (c) modify, decompile, reverse engineer, alter, tamper with or create derivative works of any API Materials; (d) falsify or alter the API Key or otherwise obscure or alter the sources of queries coming from a Client Application; or (e) access legacy or internal application programming interfaces or data feeds that are used by Philips but that are not available or intended by Philips to be available through the API. Client will cause all API calls made by a Client Application to include Client’s API Key.
4.2 Conformance and Noninterference.
Client will cause each Client Application and Client’s use of the API to conform with and not interfere with, circumvent, or render ineffective: (a) the Specifications and any other policies, terms and conditions that govern access to and/or use of the API (including any terms and conditions of any applicable Service Order or Statement of Work) and (b) any restrictions implemented in connection with the API, including any geographically-based restrictions (e.g., geo-blocking or reverse-IP lookup). Client will not, and Client will not permit or enable a Client Application or any third party to, interfere with the proper workings of any API Materials or the HSDP Platform, or create or distribute any service or application that adversely affects the functionality or performance of any API Materials, the HSDP Platform, or any websites, products or services of Philips or any of its Affiliates, licensors, suppliers (including suppliers of HealthSuite Data and API Materials), business partners or customers. Philips may, in its sole discretion, set and change quotas and other limits on API usage, which may include the number of calls Client may make to the HSDP Platform or otherwise using the API during a particular period, the minimum required time between any such calls, and/or the maximum file size that may be transmitted to or from the HSDP Platform or otherwise using the API. Client will not, and Client will not permit or enable a Client Application or any third party to, exceed or circumvent any such quotas or limits, including by aggregating accounts or obtaining multiple API keys. Without limiting the foregoing, Client will not use the API in a manner that exceeds reasonable request volume or constitutes excessive or abusive use.
4.3 Responsibility and Compliance.
4.4 Security and Harmful Code.
Client will ensure that each Client Application contains protections that are adequate to keep secure and prevent the interception of any data transmitted to and from such Client Application or the HSDP Platform. Client will ensure that each Application transmits data with a protocol at least as secure as 128-bit SSL encryption, and in any event with protocols that are at least as secure as those being accepted by the API and/or the HealthSuite Platform. Client will not attempt to circumvent any security measures or technical limitations of the API and/or the HealthSuite Platform. Client will immediately notify Philips of any security deficiencies (including without limitation any actual or suspected theft, loss or misuse of data or actual or suspected vulnerabilities that may result in a theft, loss or misuse of data) that Client discovers or suspects in connection with the API, any Application or HealthSuite Data, such notification to be made via the contact information provided on the HealthSuite Platform’s developer website, as currently located at https://www.hsdp.io.
Client will not include (or permit to be included) in or in connection with a Client Application any spyware, malware, virus, worm, trojan horse or other malicious or harmful code, or any software application not expressly and knowingly authorized by each applicable User prior to being downloaded or installed.
5. HealthSuite Data.
Client will only request such HealthSuite Data as is necessary to operate each Client Application and that Philips and the User have authorized Client to request. Client shall comply with all Applicable Laws with respect to HealthSuite Data. Client will delete any and all HealthSuite Data upon request by Philips. In addition, and unless otherwise approved by Philips for a specific Client Application, Client will not, and Client will not permit or enable a Client Application or any third party to: (a) use any automated means (e.g., scraping, crawling, spidering or robots) to access, query or obtain any HealthSuite Data or (b) except as expressly permitted by the Specifications, archive, store, modify or replace any HealthSuite Data (including by changing the order in which HealthSuite Data are originally made available by HSDP or intermixing data from sources other than HSDP with personal or personally identifiable HealthSuite Data).
6. HealthSuite Authorization.
Client will ensure that, before each User initially uses a Client Application to access the HSDP Platform, such User: (a) is presented with an authorization request for such Client Application that identifies the Profiles of User Data that the Client Application may access on the HSDP Platform, and that otherwise complies with all Specifications applicable to such authorization requests and (b) has affirmatively granted such authorization. Client will record the dates and times of such authorization for each applicable User and Client Application, and will maintain and make available such records to Philips upon request. Philips may, at any time and without reason or prior notice, require Client to re-obtain such authorization from any or all Users.
7. User Data.
Client will provide Philips with any information or materials that Philips requests to verify Client’s compliance with these API Terms and the Specifications and, if applicable, each Service Order and Statement of Work, including a copy of each Client Application and one or more test accounts that will enable Philips to access each Client Application in its entirety free of charge. Client acknowledges and agrees that Philips may (but is not obligated to) monitor the API Materials and HealthSuite Data and Client’s access thereto and use thereof for any purpose, including to ensure quality and to verify compliance with this Agreement and any Service Order and Statement of Work. Client will provide Philips with continuous means to carry out such monitoring at no charge. Client will not interfere with such monitoring or otherwise obscure from Philips any activity in connection with the API Materials and HealthSuite Data, and Philips may use any technical means to overcome such interference.
9. Responsibility for Development.
Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the parties in writing, Client will be solely responsible for all Development and distribution of Client Applications, including all related costs, expenses, losses and liabilities.
10. Responsibility for Service; Support.
As between Client and Philips and unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing, Client is solely responsible for all aspects of each Client Application, and Client acknowledges and agrees that Philips will not provide or be required to provide any technical or other support services to Client or any User in connection with any API Materials or HealthSuite Data, including with respect to integration of the API with a Client Application. Philips is not responsible for monitoring or policing any dispute related to a Client Application or its use or the use of any API Materials or HealthSuite Data that may arise between or among Client, any User, and/or any other third party. Client’s use of the API Materials and HealthSuite Data is at Client’s own risk, and Client is solely responsible for any damage that results from the use of the API Materials or HealthSuite Data, including any damage to Client’s or any Users’ computer systems or networks or any loss of data.
11. Compliance With Laws.
Client will comply with all Applicable Laws related to the Development, marketing, sale, distribution and use of each Client Application. Upon Philips’ request, Client will promptly provide to Philips copies of any regulatory approvals or other clearances. Client shall not seek any regulatory permissions or make any determinations that may result in Philips, its Affiliates or the HSDP Platform being deemed regulated or that may impose any obligations or limitations on Philips or its Affiliates.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Philips may grant to Client in certain circumstances, and solely during the term of this Agreement, a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use the API Marks, solely: (a) in connection with a Client Application for which Philips has issued Client a then-valid Production Key and (b) consistent with good trademark practice and strictly in accordance with Philips’ Brand Usage Guidelines provided to Client by Philips, as applicable. Client will not use the API Marks without a license from Philips, which must be requested by the Client and explicitly granted in writing by Philips. No license to API Marks is granted by this Agreement. Philips may update the Brand Usage Guidelines and the API Marks from time to time, and Client shall comply with the then-current Brand Usage Guidelines and use only the then-current API Marks. Client agrees that Philips and its Affiliates and licensors own and maintain all right, title and interest in and to the API Marks, and Client acknowledges the value of the API Marks, and that any and all goodwill generated by Client in the API Marks will inure to the sole benefit of Philips and its Affiliates and licensors, as applicable. Client shall not alter the API Marks, or use the API Marks in any manner that might prejudice, tarnish or damage the reputation of Philips or its Affiliates or licensors, the API Marks, or the products or services of Philips or its Affiliates or licensors. Philips may monitor Client’s use of the API Marks, and, at Philips’ request, Client will provide to Philips copies of any materials bearing the API Marks. Philips may terminate the rights granted to Client under this Section 12 for any reason and without prior notice. Upon such termination, Client shall immediately cease all use of the API Marks. Neither this Agreement nor the use of the API Marks by Client shall create, or be deemed to create, responsibility or liability on the part of Philips for the acts or omissions of Client.
Philips may change any API Materials or HealthSuite Data at any time, and for any or no reason, and Philips bears no responsibility or liability for such actions. Philips reserves the right to release subsequent versions of the API and to require Client to use the most recent version thereof, and Client agrees that it is Client’s responsibility to ensure, at Client’s own cost, that Client’s access to and use of any API Materials is compatible with Philips’ then-current requirements.
14. Philips Rights.
Philips reserves the right in its discretion to immediately suspend (temporarily or permanently), terminate or revoke Client’s, a Client Application’s and/or any User’s access to or use of any or all API Materials, API Marks, HealthSuite Data and/or the HealthSuite Platform (including by revoking or suspending any API Key), in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason (including if Philips knows of or suspects that such Client, Application or User has a security deficiency, or has inappropriately accessed, used or disclosed HealthSuite Data, is using any of the API Materials to make accessible any material that infringes Philips’ or any third party’s rights, is not using the API Marks in accordance with Philips Brand Usage Guidelines, or may otherwise threaten or damage the reputation(s) of the HSDP Platform, Philips, or any of its Affiliates), with or without cause or notice to Client, and Philips bears no responsibility or liability for any such suspension, termination or revocation. Upon any such suspension, termination or revocation of Client’s and/or a Client Application’s access to the API by Philips, any and all licenses Client may have with respect to the API Materials, API Marks and HealthSuite Data will immediately terminate, and Client will immediately cease using all API Materials, API Marks and HealthSuite Data and delete any API Materials, API Marks and HealthSuite Data in its possession or control.
Client will indemnify, and hold harmless Philips and its Affiliates and its and their licensors, suppliers, officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all liabilities, costs, damages, claims and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from or related to (i) Client’s access to, use of or other activities in connection with the API or any other API Materials, or the API Marks or HealthSuite Data; (ii) transactions conducted through the Client Application or User Data transmitted through the Client Application; (iii) the operation of Client’s business in connection with the API Materials, API Marks or HealthSuite Data, (iv) any suspension or termination of a Client Application or a Client Application’s access to or use of the HSDP Platform (including any suspension or termination by Philips); (v) any breach by Client of these API Terms; or (vi) any claim that a Client Application (including any component thereof), or the development of any Client Application (including any component thereof), infringes, misappropriates or violates any third-party intellectual property or proprietary rights. At Philips’ sole election, Client will assume control of the defense and settlement of any third party claim that is subject to indemnification pursuant to this Section 15, provided that Philips may at any time thereafter elect to take over control of the defense and settlement of any such claim, and provided that Client will not settle any such claim without Philips’ express prior written consent.

Client responsibilities and/or requirements in support of this SLA include:
• Agreement to the HSDP Terms and Conditions (For details on the Subscription Agreement, please visit https://www.hsdp.io/legal)
• Client’s must manage access for users of their application and account for security and privacy (requirements or guidance) provided by HSDP during the onboarding process
• Understanding of client responsibilities on data management, all sensitive (passwords, ePHI, SPI) data which is at rest is the responsibility of the application data owner to be secure and encrypted.
• Provide understanding of the business and technological needs behind services requested.
• Provide the required design transfer documents to HSDP Operations for Go-Live and Transition to Support (key documents include Runbook, Customer Response Form and Troubleshooting documentation if applicable).
• If Client has an SLA with their customers, provide an annotated copy of the Client-customer SLA, highlighting any items that might be influenced by HSDP services.
• Utilize the HSDP Support Center for HSDP-related incidents.
• Contact the HSDP Support Team Lead for additions or changes in established service levels or for expanded Services Contact the Account Manager
4.2. HSDP Responsibilities
HSDP will provide the infrastructure, technology, people, processes and monitoring tools necessary for Client and will:
• Provide services that are available from the HSDP Service Catalogue.
• Provide instructions to Client on HSDP Incident Management for the specific business needs
• Meet response times associated with the priority assigned to incidents and service requests.
• Generate reports on service level performance.
• Provide adequate notification to Client regarding all scheduled maintenance.
• Provide the list of countries where data centers are located and PII might possibly be processed or stored (if requested).
4.3. Service Delivery Scope
The service delivery scope includes services supported by HSDP Operations teams which bring value to the Client proposition. The services detailed in the HSDP Service Catalogue can be combined for specific business needs.
4.4. Client Detailed Service Level Agreement Input
4.4.1. Overview of solution
[This section will provide a brief overview description of the solution Client is deploying and interconnects to HSDP Services if applicable. Will include a diagram of the deployment.]
5.0 Operational Processes
5.1. HSDP Security Management
HSDP adheres to the Philips Information Security, Risk Management, and Data Privacy practices which are based off of, but not limited to, globally recognized frameworks such as NIST 800-53, ISO 27001, ISO 27018 as well as HIPAA and EU Data Protection regulations.
These leading practices include IT Standards, Guidelines, and Baselines as required to assist and guide the business in translating and implementing policy, data protection and other security control requirements. A Customer may request a privacy and security audit through the HSDP Director, Privacy and Security.
After termination of the SLA, HSDP will return or destroy all personal or sensitive information (i.e. PHI) received from or created by the client on behalf of the customer, at the clients written request. If destruction is not feasible, HSDP will extend the protections of the SLA to the information and limit further uses and disclosures to those purposes that make the return or destruction of the information infeasible.
5.1.1. Use of pre-production deployments
HSDP provides the capability for multiple deployment environments to be created at the different stages of development, staging and production and the acceptable use of all deployments prior to production is that no PHI/PII or sensitive information shall be stored in the lower deployment levels.
5.1.2. Breach Notification
If HSDP becomes aware of any Security incident where such incident results in unlawful, or unauthorized access, or where access results in loss, disclosure, or alteration of Clients Content, HSDP will notify the client within 48 hours of determining existence of a Security Data Breach. Notification will be to the designated authorized caller on the Authorized Callers list, or as defined in specific business instructions provided by the client in the SLA. In addition HSDP will take reasonable and appropriate as determined by HSDP steps to mitigate the effects and to minimize any additional damage resulting from the Security Incident.
If HSDP is prohibited from providing the notification by a court or other legal requirement, HSDP will inform the designated authorized caller of the disclosure within 24 hours of the lift of the legal prohibition.
HSDP shall notify the HSDP client of any legally binding request for disclosure of by a law enforcement authority unless such a disclosure is otherwise prohibited. HSDP will engage the authorized caller identified in this SLA for investigation, and reasonable steps for responding to such requests for disclosure.
Upon termination of the Service Level Agreement or at the request of the Client to facilitate the exercise of data destruction, with regard to the client’s obligations which may in part be defined by law, by regulations or by contract, the clients authorized caller shall open a ticket in the issue management system. HSDP or Client may request confirmation in writing, defining the data to be deleted, and outlining the consequences of doing so, in order to provide an affidavit of the actions taken. HSDP is built on AWS infrastructure and will use AWS built in controls to decommission data and media securely. When the Client has a regulatory or business reason to require further controls for decommissioning data, the Client can implement data encryption at rest using customer managed keys, which are not stored in the cloud, and in addition to the AWS processes, HSDP will delete the key used to protect the decommissioned data, making it irrecoverable. )
5.2. HSDP Operational Services
5.2.1. Operational Self-Service
HSDP Operations provides the capability for clients to self-service many of the services necessary to deploy a Client Suite through the HSDP Infrastructure as a Service. As a client is onboarded they are directed instructions on accessing the environment and the service catalog of infrastructure services. The client then works with the Operations team during the development lifecycle to prepare for transfer to production and approval to manage their offering.
The client will prepare an Operations and Maintenance Runbook on the services deployed and the interconnects to HSDP Platform Services. The client will select the monitoring tier necessary to meet their solution needs and work with Platform Operations to have services enabled for backup and recovery.
Monitoring occurs at several logical levels, including: IaaS, PaaS, application, function, and data. IaaS monitoring is implemented using DataDog to ensure basic operations for all servers. Packaged integrations allow for stateful services including database and queue management.
Information that is collected through monitoring is valuable input for several other processes or activities. The SLA reporting is largely based on the metrics that are collected via the different monitoring methods.
Monitoring will also be the main source of triggers for the event & incident management processes that deal with quick intervention to and resolution of service Issues. Finally, the metrics provided by monitoring are used in more tactical operational activities such as capacity and performance control and forecasting.
Monitoring services chosen determine the level of monitoring and services delivered. Please see the HSDP Service Catalogue for details on the monitoring services offered.
5.2.3. Backups / Disaster Recovery
The Service Continuity process ensures that the HSDP services will survive if major failures occur in the underlying physical and/or technical capabilities. Backups and Disaster Recovery (D/R) planning are critical elements of all information technology systems and are especially important for applications supporting health and life safety systems.
The HealthSuite digital platform is no exception and as such the HDSP Operations organization maintains disaster recovery preparation and response procedures and, where appropriate, backups of operations related data of the HSDP Infrastructure.
While HSDP Operations assumes responsibility for the planning and execution of D/R procedures for infrastructure, it does not provide those functions for client applications or the associated data. Development of backup, recovery and D/R plans requires an intimate knowledge of the types of data involved, data structure – including relationships between datasets, regulations or restrictions governing how the particular data can or must be handled, and many more factors. Since the Operations organization does not have insight into many or all of those characteristics for a particular application, the responsibility for design of effective data protection schemes, and the execution of those, lies with the product owner.
HSDP Operations provides components that can be leveraged by the client to implement those D/R capabilities and can, in certain cases, assist in execution of D/R activities developed by the client. The Operations and Maintenance Guide (Runbook) provides the specific guidelines for setting responsibilities and instructions on Backup and Disaster Recovery as directed by the HSDP Platform Operations team.
5.2.4. Change Management Policy
184.108.40.206. To the Service Offerings
HSDP may be required to change, discontinue, or deprecate any of the Service Offerings (including the Service Offerings as a whole) or change or remove features or functionality of the Service Offerings from time to time. HSDP will provide notification of any material change to or discontinuation of the Service Offerings and work with the client to consuming the service to provide alternative capabilities if a service is required to be discontinued and to develop a smooth transition for the live production system.
HSDP monitors the service offerings we have and will update those offerings as required to meet privacy and security requirements.
220.127.116.11. To the APIs
HSDP Platform Offerings are offered by API versioning. HSDP may be required to change, discontinue or deprecate any APIs for the Services from time to time but will use commercially reasonable efforts to continue supporting the previous version of any API changed, discontinued, or deprecated for 18 months after the change, discontinuation, or deprecation (except if doing so (a) would pose a security or intellectual property issue, (b) is economically or technically burdensome, or (c) is needed to comply with the law or requests of governmental entities).
At the deprecation of an API version the client will be requested to develop a transition plan to consume the latest version. All new development will be requested to use the latest API versions available.
18.104.22.168. To HSDP Platform Services
HSDP Platform Services released by the internal HSDP quality process and assumed fit for production is placed into an integration or staging environment first. HSDP Platform Services are focused on utilizing API management as updates are released, based on impact analysis, Clients may be invited to test for potential impact during a one-week period prior to release. If no clear blocking issues are reported by Clients, HSDP will move forward by rolling the update to Production.
Releases and deployments are targeted as much as possible in a zero-downtime scenario. Each change to an environment is classified. If downtime is unavoidable, or if the risk of downtime is considered possible, a maintenance window is communicated.
A maintenance window is declared when a change cannot be done without hampering the service to Clients, based on impact analysis, there is a risk that the service will not be available. If the moment of change can be chosen, it will be chosen in such a way that the majority of clients will have the least impact. In cases that Philips security is at risk or availability risks are too high, the Support Operations Manager will communicate the emergency change requirement.
22.214.171.124. HSDP Services Request Fulfilment
The standard request for additional services fall into two categories:
1. Modifications to general production service offerings – submit a ticket through the normal incident management model.
2. Request for expansion of services – please contact Account Manager.
5.3. HSDP Operational Support Processes
5.3.1. Contacting HSDP Support Operations
Standard methods for contacting HSDP Support and Operations:
• Open a new case, check status or update an existing case, or close a case by accessing
the Client Portal at https://www.hsdp.io/support
• Note that a Priority 1 (Critical / Highest) case cannot be opened via the Client Portal. For these types of cases, please contact HSDP Support by phone for immediate assistance.
• Call HSDP Support and Operations using toll free numbers for each geography. The list of available Toll Free Numbers will be provided upon Transition to Support.
• Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org for general questions.
• Most inquiries are answered within 24 hours, Monday – Friday 8am-5pm Eastern Standard Time.
• A service case or request cannot be opened via this email address. If the Client needs assistance opening a new support case, please contact HSDP Support by phone, as outlined above.
Instructions on contacting HSDP Support and how to use the HSDP IMS are available to the Client for their respective product support training to be done at Transition to Support.
5.3.2. Hours of Coverage
HSDP support is available 24/7/365. Prioritization of service tickets submitted is outlined below.
5.3.3. Access Management
To access to the HSDP Incident Management and request fulfilment process, the Client needs to be an Authorized Caller for the HSDP services. HSDP Support Operations relies on “authorized callers” for efficient handling of service and incident. These are named persons that represent, or act on behalf of the Client, and are allowed to raise service requests for the agreed services. The Client must complete the Client Response Template as a part of the design transfer deliverables. (View diagram at https://www.hsdp.io/legal/sla/operational-processes/support/access-management)
5.3.4. Incident Priority Definitions and Response Times
An incident is a disruption of service. This disruption can be a total outage or a reduction in quality of the usual service. All parties understand that the response times apply during the support hours listed above under Hours of Coverage. (View chart of response times at https://www.hsdp.io/legal/sla/operational-processes/support/incident)
HSDP Support calculates priority based on urgency and impact. (View diagram at https://www.hsdp.io/legal/sla/operational-processes/support/prioritization)
5.3.6. HSDP Support Incident and Event Management Process Flow
The following flow describes the HSDP support and incident process in detail. (View diagrams at https://www.hsdp.io/legal/sla/operational-processes/support/process-flow)
If a solution is not delivered according agreed timelines, or there is a special situation where Customer requests urgent attention, an escalation mechanism is defined. Escalation is the involvement of the next management level to either speed up resolution of an issue or service request, or to address a certain ‘stand-off’ situation.
Escalation is most often used when Severity 1 issues are not resolved within the expected or agreed timelines, but may also occur in other situations (e.g. contract / SLA negotiations or reviews, project delivery targets etc.). To ensure a fast and direct answer please follow the route as shown in the table at https://www.hsdp.io/legal/sla/operational-processes/support/escalation
5.3.8. System Performance and Availability Reporting
Without limiting any terms agreed HSDP will report its performance in the monthly SLA reports. Applicable improvement actions will be defined and tracked there to ensure the agreed HSDP services are kept at the agreed levels for the business proposition using these services.
126.96.36.199. Availability Management
Service Availability is defined per Calendar Month. This is the number of minutes within a Service Window that a service was actually available divided by the total number of minutes in the Service Window minus the actual number of minutes downtime due to planned maintenance within the Service Window, times 100%. (View diagram at https://www.hsdp.io/legal/sla/operational-processes/support/system-performance/availability)
188.8.131.52 Capacity Management
The HSDP services aim to be cost-effective by optimization of need versus available capacity. This process works optimally if accurate forecasting is available for the connected products. Looking at trends, HSDP assumes organic growth and anticipates based on that information. If, however, marketing/sales campaigns could lead to deviations in the expected amounts, HSDP needs to be informed upfront in order to properly anticipate non-linear growth.
To determine organic growth, HSDP uses the seasonality graphs built with historic information (View graph at https://www.hsdp.io/legal/sla/operational-processes/support/system-performance/capacity). This graph (blue line) reflects seasonality influences on connecting products to HSDP services. The green band below and beyond reflect the boundaries which HSDP assumes as normal organic growth. Deviations on product connection above the green band without timely notice from the business can have impact on the quality of the HSDP services. HSDP does not guarantee the SLA beyond the green bands.
5.3.9 Reporting & Communications
HealthSuite digital platform Operations delivers and supports services globally and uses hosting facilities in different locations across the world. Normal business hours of operation for HSDP related operations only are based on:
HSDP Services EST Time Zone and fall between 08:00-20:00, Monday till Friday.
All formal communication including but not limited to reporting, documentation and emails will be done in (US) English, unless otherwise agreed for a specific customer for a specific service. In such case, the agreed language of use will be confirmed and clearly scoped within the SLA.
In case an event occurs which hampers the agreed customer services, the team will send out a mail to the agreed stakeholders. These are defined with the role “outage-mail”. When service is restored, an “all-ok” message is sent. On crisis situations where the outage takes a significant amount of time, escalation within the team is moved to the next level. From there on, at regular intervals update mails will be sent. Also the role “primary contact” will be informed on the issue.
A monthly Service Report will be provided to the assigned Customer representative(s) within one working week after the end of the reported month. In addition to the default Monthly SLA Reporting, customer will receive a monthly Service Statistics report (available for the standard platform services only). The report will be distributed to an agreed list of recipients as determined by the Customer SLA Representative.
On HSDP or Customer request a service review meeting will be scheduled. Customer and SLA representative will conduct a yearly SLA Review. In case Customer has requests for additional services he is invited to contact his account manager.
5.3.10 Supporting Tools – Secure File Transfer
HSDP utilizes the Philips productivity tools to support secure file transfer. HSDP requires this service to be used for transfer of any files (including log files) to HSDP Support that could potentially contain PHI or other sensitive data. The BU must use the “Secure Data Transfer for Healthcare and Research” tool available on the Philips Software Portal under Productivity Tools. Philips SDT can also be reached directly via https://www.sdt.philips.com
