- Performance of a contract - we may process your personal information when we believe it is necessary to fulfill our contractual obligations to you (like providing Campus Compact membership services).

When and with whom do we share your personal information?
We may share your data with third-party vendors, service providers, contractors, or agents ("third parties") who perform services for us or on our behalf and require access to such information to do that work. We have contracts in place with our third parties that are designed to help safeguard your personal information. This means they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have instructed them to do it. They will also not share your personal information with any organization apart from us.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize such information or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
How do we keep your information safe?
We aim to protect your personal information through a system or organizational and technical safety measures. We have implemented these measures with the purpose of protecting the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information.

You should only access compact.org and our services, programs, and events within a secure environment.
