Victaulic Global Master Privacy Policy

The Victaulic Global Master Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) articulates the privacy and data protection principles followed by Victaulic and each of its global subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively “Victaulic”) around the world with regard to the personal information of its customers, including product, outsourcing and other services clients, partners, employees, former employees, applicants and current or former members of the Board of Directors ("covered individuals"). These principles support the highest privacy standards in international trade and commerce and human resource management.

Victaulic respects and is committed to protecting the personal information of our covered individuals. We follow privacy policies and data protection practices to comply with the law and to earn trust and confidence in Victaulic and its business practices. We recognize that laws, regulations and practices change over time and we strive to keep our policies up to date. In each jurisdiction in which we operate, Victaulic privacy policies and data protection practices extend by contract to our supplier and partner relationships. Victaulic board members, employees, and those working on behalf of Victaulic are informed about these policies and practices and are expected to follow them. Victaulic privacy policies and practices reflect and reinforce the Victaulic company values of trust, integrity, and quality.

Scope

This Privacy Policy applies to the collection, storage, processing, transfer, and use of personal information concerning covered individuals except where the contract with a covered individual defines different requirements. Personal information includes any data by which a person can be identified or located, as well as any data to which Victaulic has access in customer systems.

Personal information may be collected from covered individuals through a variety of means, including, as examples, websites, other ordering channels, and service or employment processes. Victaulic may also obtain personal information about covered individuals from other publicly or commercially available sources we deem credible.

This privacy policy governs customer and employee data protection policies; implementation standards; rulebooks; business processes; applications; web, product, and service developments; and technology roadmaps.

All Victaulic employees, board members, and contracted parties working on behalf of Victaulic must comply with these policies, even if local law is less restrictive. Specific practices are tailored to meet the legal, regulatory, and cultural requirements in each of the countries and regions where Victaulic operates.
