The Customer acknowledges and agrees that this questionnaire is provided for general information and internal record keeping purposes only. Neither the questionnaire nor the dashboards and the reports generated on its basis constitute legal advice or opinion of any kind, or any advertising or solicitation, and should not be treated as such. No lawyer-client, advisory, fiduciary or other relationship is created between Symantec and the Customer by virtue of this questionnaire.

This questionnaire is comprised of a series of questions based on an arbitrary and discretionary subset of the general provisions and requirements of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR) as published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 119/1) on May 4th, 2016. This questionnaire is in no event meant to provide a complete, accurate or adequate review of the GDPR and the Customer is solely responsible to determine the relevance and adequacy of each question to the Customer's activities, operations and requirements and to the GDPR. The sole purpose of this questionnaire is to record the Customer's statement as to whether the Customer is able to document its self-determined answer to each question.

Consequently the Customer acknowledges and agrees that:

- the questionnaire does not intend to comprehensively cover all requirements of the GDPR;

- the inclusion of any question in the questionnaire does in no way imply that the question is relevant or applicable to the Customer, as only the Customer can make such determination;

- the absence of any reference to a particular provision or requirement of the GDPR from the questionnaire does in no way imply that the particular provision or requirement is not relevant or applicable to the Customer, as only the Customer can make such determination; and

- the dashboards and reports generated on the basis of the questionnaire only provide a record of the Customer's self-determined answers to each question and do in no way constitute any reliable indication or statement of legal conformity, compliance or adequacy under the provisions and requirements of the GDPR or of any other legislative or regulatory instrument.

Symantec makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability or suitability with respect to the purpose, content and/or results of the questionnaire. Any reliance the Customer may place on the questionnaire and the results generated is therefore strictly at the Customer's own discretion and risk.

In no event shall Symantec be liable for any damages, losses or causes of action of any nature arising from the provision or use of the questionnaire tool (including the dashboards and reports generated and their interpretation) by the Customer.
