What is the meaning of “Additionally, and subject to our obligations hereunder and under X”?

In terms of the ToS you reproduced, it means that you grant only the rights that are not in conflict with the "PHI" portions of their Data Sharing and Protection Policy.

The clause "subject to X" means that X shall not be infringed. And the language "subject to X with respect to Y" is a qualified condition: X may be infringed except for Y.
