Related to transfer of personal information, KM utilizes Model Contracts between our EEA subsidiaries and affiliates and Koch Minerals, LLC (KM) and relevant non-EEA subsidiaries and affiliates to satisfy compliance obligations set forth by the EEA.

KM Privacy Policy for Data Transfer from the EEA

KM adheres to the Safe Harbor privacy principles, as set forth by the United States Department of Commerce, regarding the collection, storage, transfer, use and other Processing of Personal Information (as these terms are defined below) transferred to the United States from the European Economic Area and Switzerland (collectively, “EEA”). This Policy outlines our general policy and practices for implementing these privacy principles for Personal Information that we collect online and offline.

For purposes of this Policy:

“Personal Information” means information that (i) is transferred to the United States from the EEA; (ii) is recorded in any form; (iii) is about, or relates to, an identified or identifiable consumer, customer, employee (including any job applicant and current or former employee), contractor, vendor or any other relevant individual located in the EEA; and (iv) can be linked to that individual.

“Processing” means any operation or set of operations performed upon Personal Information, whether or not by automatic means, such as creating, collecting, procuring, obtaining, accessing, recording, organizing, storing, adapting, altering, retrieving, consulting, using, disclosing or destroying the information.

“Sensitive Data” means Personal Information revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, criminal records, driving records or information concerning health or sex life.

Privacy Principles

KM’s practices regarding the collection, storage, transfer, use and other Processing of Personal Information comply with the principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, access, security, data integrity, and enforcement and oversight.

Notice

We notify relevant individuals located in the EEA about (i) the purposes for which we collect and use their Personal Information; (ii) the types of third parties to which we disclose the information (for example, service providers that Process Personal Information on our behalf); (iii) certain privacy rights the individuals may have (such as the right to request access to their Personal Information and certain choices for limiting the use and disclosure of the information); and (iv) how to contact us about our practices concerning Personal Information.

Individuals may view our KM Privacy Policy for details about our Personal Information privacy practices. Current employees can find additional information in the KM Employee Privacy Notice as well as further policies of Koch Industries, Inc. on the corporate DNET. Details about our Personal Information privacy practices are also available in specific privacy notices individuals may receive when they submit their information to KM or its subsidiaries or affiliates.

Purpose of Collection and Use of Personal Information

KM may process Personal Information to (i) respond to individual’s requests; (ii) provide, evaluate the quality of and communicate about product and services; (iii) notify individuals of and administer scholarships, grants and awards, (iv) enable the company’s service providers to perform activities on its behalf; (v) carry out and support human resources functions and activities, including employee benefits, compensation and performance; (vi) undertake compliance activities; (vii) comply with contractual and legal obligations, policies and procedures; (viii) carry out internal and external investigations; (ix) undertake administrative activities, including data analytics; and (x) fulfill other purposes described in our privacy notices.

Choice

We offer individuals located in the EEA certain choices for limiting the use and disclosure of their Personal Information. To learn about the choices you may have, please review the relevant privacy notice that governs the Processing of your Personal Information by KM, as specified in the Notice section of this Policy. We do not use Personal Information for purposes incompatible with the purposes for which we originally collected the information without notifying the relevant individuals of such uses and offering an opportunity to opt out of the incompatible use, unless such use is permitted or required by applicable law.

We may disclose Personal Information without offering individuals an opportunity to opt out (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process; (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials based on an enforceable government request or as may be required under applicable law; or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

Onward Transfer of Personal Information

We may share Personal Information with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf and among our subsidiaries and affiliates. We require service providers, affiliates and subsidiaries to whom we disclose Personal Information and who are not subject to laws based on the European Union Data Protection Directive to either (i) subscribe to the Safe Harbor principles or (ii) contractually agree to provide at least an equivalent level of protection for personal information as is required by the relevant Safe Harbor principles.

Access to Personal Information

KM provides individuals located in the EEA with reasonable access to the Personal Information we maintain about them. We also provide a reasonable opportunity to correct, amend or delete that information where it is inaccurate. We may limit or deny access to Personal Information where providing such access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances, or as otherwise permitted by the Safe Harbor principles. To obtain access to Personal Information, individuals may contact KM as specified in the "How to Contact Us" section of this Policy. Employees should submit requests for access to their Personal Information to their local Human Resources representative.

Data Integrity

KM takes reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information the company collects is relevant for the purposes for which it is to be used and that the information is reliable for its intended use and is accurate, complete and current. We depend on individuals to update or correct their Personal Information whenever necessary. Please contact us if you believe your Personal Information is not accurate or current.

Enforcement and Oversight
