C. Details of Transfers to Third Parties or Third Countries + Safeguards.
Your personal data may be transferred to and accessed by HIPP company offices worldwide, including to some countries which may be deemed by the European Union not to have an adequate level of protection of personal data. Your personal data may also be transferred to and processed on the third party-hosted websites of HIPP partners, who provide support such as helping HIPP to manage the HIPP grant application and contribution process. Transfers of personal data collected and processed in the European Union and processed within HIPP, or outside HIPP by such third parties, shall be made consistent with HIPP’s Binding Corporate Rules, which are posted at HIPP Data Protection Binding Corporate Rules Policy.

D. Other Uses of Personal Data, including Disclosure to Third Parties.
In addition to the above, you acknowledge and consent to the fact that HIPP may maintain personal data and any other information you provide if required to do so by law or if HIPP has a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to comply with legal process; to investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; to respond to claims of third parties; to protect HIPP’s or third party’s rights, property, safety; or to otherwise enforce this Agreement or the integrity of the site and data. You acknowledge and consent to such disclosure. Circumstances may arise where for business or technological reasons (e.g., for purposes of investigation, routine audits, site administration and improvement, data storage and recovery, and other analytics), it might be necessary for HIPP and certain of its third party contractors/service providers acting on HIPP’s behalf, to have access to personal information and content submitted via this site. It is HIPP's practice to require any such service providers who might have access to personal or confidential information in the course of providing services to HIPP to be bound by confidentiality obligations designed to protect any such personal or confidential information.
E. Legal Basis for Processing.
The legal basis for processing your personal data in the European Union is as follows. It may be necessary for compliance with legal obligations to which HIPP is subject, such as reporting of compliance with law to certain government agencies, to exercise its legal rights where it is necessary to do so, for example to detect, prevent and respond to fraud claims, intellectual property claims or violations of law, and may be necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of HIPP, to ensure that it can effectively manage and communicate regarding its business efficiently, to perform investigations, and to carry out audits of compliance. When we process personal data to meet our legitimate interests, we always balance these against your fundamental rights and freedoms and we put in place robust safeguards to ensure that your privacy is protected. For more information about the balancing test that is carried out when we rely upon legitimate interests, please contact HIPP as indicated below. If HIPP asks for your consent to process your personal data, and your personal data is subject to European law, you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.
Your personal data will be held for only so long as it is needed for HIPP’s business purposes, and in accordance with applicable corporate document retention schedules. These schedules are designed to comply with applicable data privacy and other legislation, and to assist HIPP in maintaining business records which it may need to conduct its business and to respond to lawful requests for information in connection with legal claims or disputes. If you require any information about the periods for which HIPP will hold your personal data please contact us as indicated below.
G. Certain Rights.
You have rights under European law to access and rectify, or erase, restrict, or object to HIPP's use of your personal data. You also have the right to lodge a complaint regarding how HIPP handles your personal data with the local supervisory authority for data protection within your specific European Union member state of residence, place of work, or place of alleged infringement of European law.
