- Handle and maintain personal data in compliance with all applicable data privacy and protection laws, rules, and regulations;
- Immediately notify DocuSign about any actual or potential security breach affecting personal data processed on behalf of DocuSign;
- Assist and support DocuSign in dealing with requests from governmental authorities, data controllers, data subjects or data protection authorities, as applicable;
- Not transfer personal data to a third country unless expressly authorized to do so by DocuSign;
