It supplements the Airbnb Privacy Policy , which also applies to your use of and visits to the Site. If we make translations of this Supplementary Privacy Policy available, the English version shall prevail in the event of any inconsistency.

Please read the terms of the Airbnb Privacy Policy carefully. Any capitalised terms not defined in this Supplementary Privacy Policy have the same definition as given in the eligibility criteria available on the Site, the Terms and Conditions available on the Site, Airbnb Privacy Policy, and Airbnb Terms of Service.


We collect the information you submit in your application form, as well as the information that you provide to us during any follow-up stages in the application process (e.g. screenings, interviews if applicable). Processing of this information is required for you to apply for entry into the Scheme, and is necessary for the adequate performance of our obligations pursuant to the eligibility criteria.

When you use the Site, we automatically collect information, including personal data about the services you use and how you use them. Further information is available in the Airbnb Privacy Policy.


We will use the information we collect for the adequate performance of the contract between you and us. If you are selected as a recipient of a grant under the Scheme, we may use and process your personal data to publicly announce that you have been selected. This information will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in announcing the recipients of a grant.

For more information on how we use the personal data we collect, please see the Airbnb Privacy Policy.


We share and disclose information, including your application and related personal data, if any, with members of the selection committee to enable them to fulfil their roles in the selection process. We may use third party service providers to help us with the selection. These providers have limited access to your personal data, as required to perform tasks on our behalf, and are contractually bound to protect it and use it only for the purposes for which it was disclosed to them and in accordance with applicable privacy law. Our service providers may be located inside or outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Laws in these countries may differ from the laws applicable to your Country/Region of Residence. For example, personal data collected within the EEA may be transferred, stored, and processed outside of the EEA for the purposes described in this Supplementary Privacy Policy. Where we transfer, store, and process your personal data outside of the EEA we have ensured that appropriate safeguards are in place to ensure an adequate level of data protection. We will provide further information on the means used to ensure an adequate level of data protection upon request. For more information on our use of third party service providers and international transfers, please see the Airbnb Privacy Policy.

You may also be entitled to request copies of personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and/or request us to transmit this personal data to another service provider (where technically feasible).

Data Retention and Erasure We will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary for the application process, in accordance with applicable laws. Unless you are selected as a Successful Applicant and recipient of a grant, we will delete any personal data about you promptly after the closing of the application process, subject to any delay in the selection of grant recipients.

Restriction of Processing In some jurisdictions, applicable law may give you the right to limit the ways in which we use your personal data, in particular where: (i) you contest the accuracy of your personal data; (ii) the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your personal data; (iii) we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require the personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or (iv) you have objected to the processing and verification whether our legitimate grounds override your own is pending.

Objection to Processing In some jurisdictions, applicable law may entitle you to require us not to process your personal data for certain specific purposes (including certain types of profiling) where such processing is based on legitimate interest.
