Data Privacy Notice and Consent
a) Data Collection and Usage. The Company and the Employer collect, process and use certain personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, home address and telephone number, email address, date of birth, social insurance, passport or other identification number (e.g., resident registration number), salary, nationality, job title, any shares of Common Stock or directorships held in the Company, details of all purchase rights or any other entitlement to shares of Common Stock or equivalent benefits awarded, canceled, exercised, purchased, vested, unvested or outstanding in your favor (“Data”), for the purposes of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan. The legal basis, where required, for the processing of Data is your consent.
b) Stock Plan Administration Service Providers. The Company will transfer Data to E*TRADE Financial Services, Inc. or Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, which are assisting the Company with the implementation, administration and management of the Plan (the “Designated Broker”). The Company may select different or additional service providers in the future and share Data with such other provider(s) serving in a similar manner. You may be asked to agree on separate terms and data processing practices with the Designated Broker, with such agreement being a condition to the ability to participate in the Plan.
c) International Data Transfers. The Company and the Designated Broker are based in the United States. Your country or jurisdiction may have different data privacy laws and protections than the United States. For example, the European Commission has issued a limited adequacy finding with respect to the United States that applies only to the extent companies register for the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield program (which the Company currently is not). The Company’s legal basis, where required, for the transfer of Data is your consent.
d) Data Retention. The Company will hold and use Data only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage your participation in the Plan, or as required to comply with legal or regulatory obligations, including under tax, exchange control, labor and securities laws.
e) Voluntariness and Consequences of Consent Denial or Withdrawal. Participation in the Plan is voluntary, and you are providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If you do not consent, or if you later seek to revoke your consent, your salary from or employment and career with the Employer will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or you withdrawing consent is that the Company would not be able to grant the Restricted Stock Units or other equity awards to you or administer or maintain such awards.
f) Data Subject Rights. You may have a number of rights under data privacy laws in your jurisdiction. Depending on where you are based, such rights may include the right to (i) request access or copies of Data the Company processes, (ii) rectification of incorrect Data, (iii) deletion of Data, (iv) restrictions on processing of Data, (v) portability of Data, (vi) lodge complaints with competent authorities in your jurisdiction, and/or (vii) receive a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of Data. To receive clarification regarding these rights or to exercise these rights, you can contact the local human resources representative.
g) By accepting the Restricted Stock Units and indicating consent via the Company’s acceptance procedure, you are declaring agreement with the data processing practices described herein and consent to the collection, processing and use of Data by the Company and the transfer of Data to the recipients mentioned above, including recipients located in countries which do not adduce an adequate level of protection from a European (or other non-U.S.) data protection law perspective, for the purposes described above.
Finally, you understand that the Company may rely on a different basis for the processing or transfer of Data in the future and/or request that you provide another data privacy consent. If applicable, you agree that upon request of the Company or the Employer, you will provide an executed acknowledgement or data privacy consent form (or any other agreements or consents) that the Company and/or the Employer may deem necessary to obtain from you for the purpose of administering your participation in the Plan in compliance with the data privacy laws in your country, either now or in the future. You understand and agree that you will not be able to participate in the Plan if you fail to provide any such consent or agreement requested by the Company and/or the Employer.
