and to provide the Services. To the extent that this is necessary but subject to clause 8, Simply Payroll

part) to a third party, provided that Simply Payroll enters into a confidentiality agreement with the
third party on terms no less restrictive than this clause 8.
8.3 Except to the extent that a party has ongoing rights to use Confidential Information or is required by law
to retain Confidential Information (and, to avoid doubt, Simply Payroll is required under New Zealand Law
to retain certain Data for 7 years from Your last processed Payrun), a party must, at the request of the
other party following the termination of the Agreement, promptly return to the other party or destroy all

or invalidity. If a modification is not possible, the part or provision must be treated for all
purposes as severed from the Terms. The remainder of the Terms are binding on You.
