Absent such a request, Drift will wait one hundred and eighty (180) days after the termination of the agreement prior to permanently deleting all Customer Content;
    5. Any transfer or exchange of Customer Content will be carried out in a secure manner; and
    6. All Customer Content will be protected by access controls. All Customer Content will be protected from improper access, disclosure, modification, and deletion.
  17. Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Plan. Drift maintains a business continuity and disaster recovery plan designed, maintained and followed to maintain and/or resume the availability of the Services according to the Recovery Time Objective (“RTO”) and Recovery Point Objective (“RPO”) set forth below. Upon request, Drift shall provide a summary of its business continuity plan. The plan will include, at a minimum:
    • RTO: 24 hours;
    • At least an annual exercise;
    • Summary report of results, gaps, findings and remediation (if any) for all exercises; and
    • Procedural documentation of recovery tasks.

    Planned and unplanned outages are documented at On a periodic basis, restoration tests shall be performed to determine whether the backed-up data is recoverable and if Drift can meet its responsibilities to maintain service availability. Annual fire drills and tabletop or disaster recovery exercises shall also be performed.

  18. Right to Audit. The Customer, or a third party on their behalf, at no additional cost to Drift and upon reasonable advance notice, but no more than once per calendar year, may conduct an information security assessment of Drift’s services. Such assessment must consist of any written security assessment questionnaire and requests for supporting documentation. Drift will provide the necessary documentation within thirty (30) days of the request. In response, Drift shall provide the Customer with its most recent third-party assessments/reports, which may include SOC 2 Type 2 report, third-party penetration test executive summary report, written responses to Customer’s questionnaire, and all supporting documentation that Drift generally makes available to its customers to verify that Drift employs commercially reasonable practices and procedures in compliance with this agreement. Should follow-up questions arise as a result of the above process, Drift Personnel will participate in online meetings with the Customer to clarify Customer’s understanding of Drift information security processes and procedures as they relate to the Services. Drift will provide the Customer with written responses to any audit findings identified by Customer including a timetable for remediation of said findings.
  19. Definitions.
    1. “Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability” refers to the three properties of the information security model known as the “CIA Triad.” Confidentiality is the property that data or information is not made available or disclosed to unauthorized persons or processes. Integrity is the property that data or information have not been altered or destroyed in an unauthorized manner. Availability is the property that data or information is accessible and useable upon demand by an authorized person.
    2. “Customer Content” shall have the same definition as in the Agreement.
    3. “Personnel” means Drift’s or its contractors or subcontractor’s employees, agents, subcontractors, and other authorized users of its systems and network resources.
    4. “Physical, Administrative, and Technical Safeguards” refers to the controls Drift has implemented to maintain information security. Physical safeguards address physical measures, policies, and procedures to protect electronic information systems and related buildings and equipment from natural and environmental hazards and unauthorized intrusion. Administrative safeguards address administrative actions, policies, and procedures to manage the selection, development, implementation, and maintenance of security measures to protect electronic data or information and to manage the conduct of Personnel in relation to the protection of that data or information. Technical safeguards address the technology, and the policies and procedures for its use, that protect electronic data or information and control access to it.
