In the event that Quantcast determines that it can no longer meet its obligations under the US State Privacy Laws with respect to the Disclosed Personal Information, it shall take commercially reasonable steps to notify Customer.
2.2. Processing of the Disclosed Personal Information. Customer makes the Disclosed Personal Information available to Quantcast for the limited and specified purpose of providing Customer with access to Quantcast’s platform and the Services and as otherwise described in the Agreement.

At reasonable intervals during the term of the Agreement not to exceed more than once in a given twelve (12) month period, Quantcast shall, upon written request, make available to Customer information or documentation necessary to demonstrate its compliance with its obligations under this Addendum with respect to the Disclosed Personal Information.
