International transfer of Personal Information:
Wipro Foundation may transfer certain personal information across geographical borders to Wipro entities or service providers in other countries working on our behalf in accordance with applicable law. A Transfer of personal information has a broad meaning and occurs when information is communicated, moved, accessed, or otherwise sent to another country.
In cases where personal information would need to be transferred outside of a country where Wipro operates, towards other jurisdictions, specific requirements may apply for such Transfer to be allowed.
For instance, data protection laws of the EEA and of Switzerland authorize the Transfer of personal information:
- to countries that have been recognized by the European Commission as offering an adequate level of protection for personal information.
- if appropriate measures in compliance with the European Union data protection legal requirements are in place in order to ensure the protection and the confidentiality of personal information in the countries that do not offer an adequate level of protection.
This is the case where the recipient Wipro entity or Third Party concludes with the exporting relevant entity of Wipro an agreement based on the European Union standard contractual clauses, to ensure the protection of personal information.
Wipro Foundation may also Transfer personal information to a Third Party located outside the EEA or Switzerland without having to implement the above measures where one of the following conditions is met:
- the Data Subject has given her/his consent to Wipro Foundation for the Transfer of her/his Personal Information;
- Wipro Foundation needs to carry out the transfer of personal information to perform or conclude a contract with the Data Subject; the transfer of personal information is necessary (i) to protect the Data Subject’s vital interests (i.e., in case of a life or death situation), or (ii) to allow Wipro to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim, or (iii) for reasons of public interest;
- the Transfer covers personal information publicly available (for instance, from a public register).
Wipro Foundation ensures the “same level of data protection” as per applicable data protection laws and regulations when it transfers your personal information to any other body corporate or a person in any country
Wipro Foundation shall not be responsible for the authenticity of the personal information supplied to it by its service providers, whose duty it is to ensure that the information provided by it or its employees is authentic.
Any grievance or complaint in relation to the processing of personal information should be sent to Wipro in writing to the following contact e-mail ID. The grievance shall be redressed as expeditiously as possible.
This Privacy Statement is effective from 22 October 2020, and it supersedes all existing policies on the subject matter.
