For transfer of personal data outside of the original location of collection for any other country or jurisdiction, it will be protected and transferred in a manner consistent with the applicable legal requirements, and Hines will take reasonable steps (for example through a contract with the overseas recipient) to ensure that the overseas recipient does not breach the applicable privacy laws in relation to the data.
