13.4.2 process only the types of Personal Data, relating to the categories of Data Subjects, and in the manner required to deliver the Services, as is set out in the Annex 1, or as otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties;
13.4.3 take all measures required by Article 32 of the GDPR to ensure the security of the Personal Data;

The Customer acknowledges that Cox collects and uses data from across its customer base in order to improve its products and services for its customers, and to carry out related research. Cox takes steps to aggregate or otherwise de-identify any Customer data used for these purposes, and therefore does not knowingly process any Personal Data. However, to the extent that any such data is held to be Personal Data in a particular jurisdiction, Cox shall be the Controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Laws.
A party (receiving party) shall keep in strict confidence all technical or commercial know-how, specifications, inventions, processes or initiatives which are of a confidential nature and have been disclosed to the receiving party by the other party (disclosing party), its employees, agents or subcontractors, and any other confidential information concerning the disclosing party's business, its products and services which the receiving party may obtain. The receiving party shall only disclose such confidential information to those of its employees, agents and subcontractors who need to know it for the purpose of discharging the receiving party's obligations under the Contract, and shall ensure that such employees, agents and subcontractors comply with the obligations set out in this clause as though they were a party to the Contract. The receiving party may also disclose such of the disclosing party's confidential information as is required to be disclosed by Applicable Law, any governmental or regulatory authority or by a court of competent jurisdiction. This clause 14 shall survive termination of the Contract.
