We employ other companies and persons to perform functions on our behalf. They have access to Personal Data needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Communicating via the Internet and sending information, products, and services to you by other means necessarily involves your Personal Data passing through or being handled by third-parties.
For the purpose of the administration of the Site and the Personal Data collected through the Site, ExxonMobil shares your Personal Data with other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, including fulfilling orders, deliveries, sending postal mail, and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing card payments and providing customers service. They have access to your Personal Data needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Before any Personal Data is shared with service providers, we enter into a written agreement which requires them: (1) not to make any unauthorized further disclosures of the Personal Data; (2) to use the Personal Data only for the specified purposes and only according to the instructions received from ExxonMobil; (3) to retain the Personal Data only as long as necessary to carry out these purposes or to protect company interests (e.g. until the end of statute of limitations periods); and (4) to have in place adequate and appropriate security measures.
In some circumstances, for instance if required by law or legal process or in order to defend its rights, ExxonMobil will have to disclose Personal Data to other third parties, including competent authorities.
If Personal Data is shared with a third party or an ExxonMobil affiliate outside the EEA, the conditions regarding data transfers, see Section 6 below, apply in addition to the requirements of this section.
The relevant ExxonMobil affiliate who is the Data Controller may transfer some or all of the Personal Data to servers of ExxonMobil located worldwide and will make that Personal Data accessible to other ExxonMobil affiliates, some of which are located in third countries that may not be regarded as providing an adequate level of protection of the Personal Data, in accordance with applicable law.
The transfer of Personal Data from the EEA to recipients located outside the EEA is subject to restrictions. ExxonMobil has taken steps so that Personal Data receives an adequate level of data protection at all ExxonMobil locations. These steps include ExxonMobil affiliates entering into Inter Affiliate Agreements containing the EU “Standard Contractual Clauses”.
The EU Standard Contractual Clauses have been approved by the European Commission and relevant European authorities as offering adequate protection for transfers of Personal Data outside the EEA.
When transferring Personal Data to third parties, ExxonMobil puts in place safeguards to ensure that the third party adequately protects the Personal Data. These safeguards may include, as appropriate: (1.) the EU “Standard Contractual Clauses”, (2.) contractual safeguards imposed on the third party which is contracted by ExxonMobil affiliates outside of EEA or Switzerland (so-called onward transfers by the ExxonMobil affiliates outside of EEA or Switzerland), (3.) Privacy Shield certification of the third party (established in the US), and (4.) protections available under local law for the third party established in a country deemed adequate by the EU Commission.

ExxonMobil endeavors to keep Personal Data that it collects as accurate, complete and current taking into account the purposes for which it was collected and is being used. ExxonMobil relies on Data Subjects to maintain the accuracy and completeness of the Personal Data and so you should inform ExxonMobil if your personal details change, including the context in which the Personal Data was provided, e.g. in connection with promotion of a specific product or service.
ExxonMobil maintains appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, use, and all other unlawful forms of Processing of Personal Data in our possession.
Applicable law may give you the right to know how ExxonMobil Processes your Personal Data, and to access your Personal Data held by ExxonMobil. Such rights exist under data privacy laws in EEA. Furthermore in EEA, you also have the right to: have inaccurate or incomplete Personal Data rectified; to restrict the Processing of your Personal Data, under certain circumstances; to object to the Processing operations, having regard to the given circumstances and for reasons related to their particular situation; or to have Personal Data erased when such data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it has been collected, in accordance with applicable law.
In some circumstances, you also have a right to request the portability of your Personal Data, which will allow you to obtain and reuse your Personal Data for your own purposes across different services without hindrance to usability.
For more information about the specific mechanism available in order to exercise the aforementioned rights, please contact the email@example.com.
To facilitate our efforts to meet your request, it would be helpful if you could let us know the context in which you initially provided ExxonMobil with your Personal Data, e.g. in connection with promotion of a specific product or service.
Certain categories of Personal Data are considered sensitive under data privacy laws and, as such, are subject to a higher level of protection and security. Data privacy law considers as sensitive the following categories of Personal Data: (1) race or ethnic origin; (2) political opinions; (3) religious and philosophical beliefs; (4) trade union membership; (5) sex life or sexual orientation; (6) physical or mental health or conditions; and (7) genetic data and biometric data for the purpose of uniquely defining a natural person.

However, if you do provide such information, ExxonMobil accepts your explicit consent to use that data in accordance with this Privacy Statement or in the ways described at the point where such information is disclosed.
ExxonMobil does not use automated decision-making unless this is (i.) necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the Individual and ExxonMobil and its affiliates, (ii.) permitted or required by law, or (iii.) based on the Individual’s explicit consent.
Automated decision-making means a decision that produces legal effects concerning an Individual or significantly affects the Individual and which is based solely on automated Processing (i.e. no human intervention in the process of decision-making) of Personal Data intended to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to the Individual. Moreover, ExxonMobil shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the Individual’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests.
ExxonMobil retains Personal Data as long as necessary to meet the purposes for which the data was collected, or in order to ensure compliance with applicable law or to protect legitimate company interests (e.g. statute of limitations periods).
ExxonMobil is committed to protecting your Personal Data as described in this Privacy Statement and as required by applicable national laws. If you have any questions about this notice or about ExxonMobil’s handling of your Personal Data, or if you would like to request additional information on the Personal Data ExxonMobil holds about you or learn about and exercise your rights with respect to your Personal Data, you can contact:
