If there is any conflict between the terms in this notice and the Data Privacy Framework Principles, the Data Privacy Framework Principles shall govern.

The personal data types that our authorized users upload and store in our services is at their discretion (subject to any limitations in the applicable agreements) and we only process personal data in accordance with their instructions as set forth in those contracts, including the applicable Data Processing Addendum (DPA), a current version of our standard is available at https://clickhouse.com/legal/agreements/data-processing-addendum).
