(e) The data importer agrees to promptly notify the data exporter if, after having agreed to these Clauses and for the duration of the contract, it has reason to believe that it is or has become subject to laws not in line with the requirements under paragraph a), including following a change of the laws in the third country or a measure (such as a disclosure request) indicating an application of such laws in practice that is not in line with the requirements under paragraph a).
(f) Following a notification pursuant to paragraph e), or if the data exporter otherwise has reason to believe that the data importer can no longer fulfill its obligations under the Clauses, the data exporter shall promptly identify appropriate measures (such as, for instance, technical or organizational measures to ensure security and confidentiality) to be adopted by the data exporter and/or data importer to address the situation, if appropriate in consultation with the [for Module Three: controller and] competent supervisory authority. If the data exporter decides to continue the transfer, based on its assessment that these additional measures will allow the data importer to fulfill its obligations under the Clauses, the data exporter shall forward the notification to the competent supervisory authority together with an explanation, including a description of the measures taken.
