11.2 Where Egregore, with Subscriber's consent, subcontracts its obligations and rights under this DPA it shall do so only by way of a binding written contract with the sub-processor which imposes essentially the same obligations as this DPA, especially with regard to instructions and TOMs.
11.3 Where the sub-processor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations under the subcontracting agreement, Egregore shall remain fully liable to the Subscriber for the fulfilment of its obligations under this DPA and for the performance of the sub-processor 's obligations.
