Notice to EU/UK Residents

If you are a resident of the UK or European Union ("EU"), you may have additional rights, as detailed below. Furthermore, you are entitled to know the processing bases upon which we rely for the collection, processing and use of your Personal Data. For purposes of this appendix to the Chevron Phillips Chemical Website Privacy Statement, the term "Personal Data" is used synonymously with the term "Personal Information" in the Chevron Phillips Chemical Website Privacy Statement.
 
Processing Bases and Consequences
We rely on the following legal grounds for the collection, processing and use of your Personal Data:
  • the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract;
  • the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject;
  • the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of which you require protection of Personal Data, such as legitimate interests are the fulfilment of the processing purposes described in this Privacy Statement that are not necessary for the performance of a contract or for our compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject; or
  • other applicable legal basis for data processing, especially provisions set out by Member State law.

To the extent that a legal ground described above would not apply to specific purpose of processing of your Personal Data by us, we will seek your consent for such specific purpose(s) in accordance with applicable law.

If you do not provide us with certain of your Personal Data, we may not be able to fulfill the requested purpose of collection, such as to respond to your queries or provide our Site to you. However, unless otherwise specified, not providing your Personal Data will not result in legal consequences for you.

Your Rights
Right to withdraw your consent: To the extent a specific element of our processing of your Personal Data relies upon your consent, you may withdraw such consent at any time with future effect. Such a withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to the consent withdrawal.

Additional data privacy rights: Pursuant to applicable data protection law, you may have the right to (i) request access to your Personal Data; (ii) request rectification of your Personal Data; (iii) request erasure of your Personal Data; (iv) request restriction of processing of your Personal Data; (v) request data portability; and/or (vi) object to the processing of your Personal Data (including objection to profiling).

Please note that these aforementioned rights might be limited under the applicable local data protection law. Below please find further information on your rights to the extent that the EU General Data Protection Regulation applies:

Right to request access to your Personal Data: You may have the right to obtain from us confirmation as to whether or not Personal Data concerning you is being processed, and, where that is the case, to request access to the Personal Data. This access information includes - inter alia - the purposes of the processing, the categories of Personal Data concerned, and the recipients or categories of recipient to whom the Personal Data have been or will be disclosed. However, this is not an absolute right and the interests of other individuals may restrict your right of access.
You may have the right to obtain a copy of the Personal Data undergoing processing free of charge. For further copies requested by you, we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs.

Right to request rectification: You may have the right to obtain from us the rectification of inaccurate Personal Data concerning you. Depending on the purposes of the processing, you may have the right to have incomplete personal Data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

Right to request erasure (right to be forgotten): Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to obtain from us the erasure of Personal Data concerning you and we may be obliged to erase such Personal Data.

Right to request restriction of processing: Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to obtain from us restriction of processing your Personal Data. In such case, the respective data will be marked and may only be processed by us for certain purposes.

Right to request data portability: Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to receive the Personal Data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and you may have the right to transmit those data to another entity without hindrance from us.

Right to object: Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to object, on grounds of relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of your Personal Data by us and we can be required to no longer process your Personal Data. Such right to object may especially apply if we collect and process your Personal Data for profiling purposes in order to better understand your interests in our products and services or for direct marketing. If you have a right to object and you exercise this right, your Personal Data will no longer be processed for such purposes by us. You may exercise this right by contacting us as stated at the end of the Chevron Phillips Chemical Privacy Statement. Such a right to object may, in particular, not exist if the processing of your Personal Data is necessary to take steps prior to entering into a contract or to perform a contract already concluded.

To exercise your rights, please contact us as stated at the end of the Chevron Phillips Chemical Privacy Statement. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority.

International Transfers
The Personal Data that we collect or receive about you may be transferred to and processed by recipients that are located inside or outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). For recipients located outside of the EEA, some are certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and others are located in countries with adequacy decisions, and, in each case, the transfer is thereby recognized as providing an adequate level of data protection from a European data protection law perspective. Other recipients might be located in countries which do not provide an adequate level of protection from a European data protection law perspective. With respect to transfers to countries not providing an adequate level of data protection, we will base the transfer on appropriate safeguards, such as standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission or by a supervisory authority, approved codes of conduct together with binding and enforceable commitments of the recipient, or approved certification mechanisms together with binding and enforceable commitments of the recipient. You may request a copy of such appropriate safeguards by contacting us as set out at the end of the Chevron Phillips Chemical Privacy Statement.
