PRIVACY POLICY

Essentra plc and its subsidiaries are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This policy (together with the Terms of Use and other documents referred to in them) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us.

This Web Site is owned and operated by or on behalf of Essentra plc (“We”, “Us” and “Our”, as appropriate in the context). We reserve the right to change this policy from time to time, so please check this web-page regularly for updates.

We will not collect any personal information about you without your consent. We may invite you to provide Us with personal information in order to provide you with services such as enquiry response, e-mail newsletters, invitation to events, and information updates. In order to process and fulfil orders, we may also obtain personal information about you (such as your name and email address) if you are a customer of our business or you work for a customer of our business. In order to deliver some or all of the services referred to above, We will need to process and store your personal information and may need to transfer it for such processing outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to other employees or Group companies for the purposes of improving communication and disclosures relating to Essentra and its international business activities, the fulfilment of customer orders and the processing of payment details. Please note that some countries outside the EEA may not offer the same level of legal protection for personal information as countries within the EEA. By submitting your personal information on this Web Site, you consent to such processing and transfers in connection with such services and for any other purposes to which you consent at the time you provide the information. Where We need to transfer your information to entities in any countries outside the EEA, We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that such information is treated securely and in accordance with this policy.

In order to protect your privacy We take appropriate security measures in the storage and disclosure of personal information so as to prevent unauthorised access by third parties. We endeavour to ensure that any party to which we transfer information has similar security measures. However, the Internet is not a totally secure medium and you acknowledge and agree that We shall not be responsible for any unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of personal data, except to the extent that such event has been caused by our negligence or breach. Our responsibilities and your rights may vary according to local laws.

In the event that We transfer the business which provides products and services to you to another supplier, you also agree that your data may be transferred to that supplier.

If you do not agree with this privacy policy or any of the uses of data that We set out above you should not submit your personal information on this Web Site. If you want to stop receiving communications from Us, please follow the instructions that appear on the emails or other communications that We send to you in order to be unsubscribed from Our contact list. If you have any questions about Our use of data please send an e-mail to enquiries@essentra.com or write to Us at at Avebury House, 201-249 Avebury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire MK9 1AU or call +44 (0) 1908 359100 and ask to speak to the Deputy Company Secretary.
