If Smartsheet cannot address Customer’s objection pursuant to the foregoing efforts, Smartsheet will notify Customer within fifteen (15) days of receipt of Customer’s objection notice.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if modifying or disregarding the unenforceable provision would result in failure of an essential purpose of this DPA, the entire DPA will be considered null and void.
9.3. Order of Precedence. Regarding the subject matter of this DPA, in the event of any conflict between this DPA and any other written agreement between the Parties (including the Agreement), this DPA will govern and control.

9.8. Variations in Data Protection Laws. If any variation is required to this DPA as a result of a change in or subsequently applicable Data Protection Law, then either Party may provide written notice to the other Party of that change in law.
