Sur-Seal, Inc. Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement provides an overview of how Sur-Seal, Inc. processes personal data about people it does business with, whether online through this website, or in other ways. 

Personal data is information that relates to you as an individual.

When we refer in this Privacy Statement to Sur-Seal, Inc. "processing" personal data, we mean any handling by Sur-Seal, Inc. of personal data - for example, collecting, storing, using, transferring disclosing, deleting or accessing personal data.

This Privacy Statement applies to personal data that Sur-Seal, Inc. processes as a result of dealings through this website, including your use of this website.

This Privacy Statement also applies to personal data that Sur-Seal, Inc. processes as a result of other business dealings you may have with Sur-Seal, Inc. 

What this Privacy Statement covers

This Privacy Statement applies to personal data that Sur-Seal, Inc. processes as a result of dealings through this website, including your use of this website. Section 4 addresses online privacy. If your only dealings with Sur-Seal, Inc. are through this website, please refer to section 4. 

As a global company, Sur-Seal, Inc. is regulated under data protection laws and privacy laws that apply in its countries of operation. This Privacy Statement is not intended to explain all the different legal obligations that apply to Sur-Seal, Inc. around the globe under applicable privacy and data protection laws (Privacy Laws). However, it is intended to provide a general illustration of how Sur-Seal, Inc. will process personal data about you. 

Processing of personal data

Whose personal data does Sur-Seal, Inc. process?

Sur-Seal, Inc. processes personal data of individuals with whom it deals with in the course of its business activities. 

This includes "contact people" within:

  • its customers and suppliers;
  • government departments and regulatory agencies;
  • the communities where it operates; and 
  • industry groups and other organizations that it has business dealings with. 

As explained in the introduction, Sur-Seal, Inc. also processes personal data of employees, prospective employees and contractors, and more information about that is contained in the separate privacy statements referred to above. Sur-Seal, Inc. also processes personal data of its shareholders and directors.   

What type of personal data is processed, and why?

Sur-Seal, Inc. processes personal data that it needs for its business activities. The scope of your personal data that is processed will depend on the nature of Sur-Seal, Inc.'s dealings with you. We process personal data as we consider required or as permitted by applicable Privacy Laws.

If you are one of the "contact people" described above, Sur-Seal, Inc. will process personal data that is needed to contact you or your organization. Apart from your name, Sur-Seal, Inc. will process your business contact details (eg. title, work address, email address and telephone numbers). 

This personal data will be processed for the relevant business purposes for which it was collected or obtained, for example to supply goods to your company or acquire services from your company, to enter into contracts, for external communications and for related administrative purposes. 

Sur-Seal, Inc. may also need to process other types of information in order to manage your relationship with Sur-Seal, Inc. In particular, we need to process personal data:

  • about individuals within our customers in order to take actions or measures we consider necessary or appropriate to comply with our legal obligations. For example, to meet our obligations under anti-money laundering legislation in some of our countries of operation, we need to process personal data that verifies the identity of beneficial owners of customers (egg passport data). We also need to collect personal data from shareholders for shareholding purposes (including for regulatory reporting  and shareholder communications); and
  • about visitors to our premises or sites for security and safety purposes.

In these situations, if you do not provide the personal data we need or request, we won't be able to do business with you (or the company that you represent). 

Sharing of personal data within Sur-Seal, Inc. To the extent we consider required or permitted by applicable Privacy Laws, personal data may be shared between companies within the Sur-Seal, Inc. Group as necessary or appropriate for the conduct of business activities (as described in section 1 above). 

Disclosures of personal data to third parties

To the extent permitted by applicable Privacy Laws, Sur-Seal, Inc. may disclose personal data

  • to external service providers (as discussed below); 
  • in the event of a proposed sale, merger, reorganization or other similar event relating to a Sur-Seal, Inc. business or entity;
  • as we consider required or permitted under law or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. This may require disclosures to courts, law enforcement agencies or government, regulatory or other competent authorities and bodies; or
  • to protect the rights or safety of any of its employees or any third party. 

Sometimes Sur-Seal, Inc. engages external service providers (including professional advisers such as lawyers, accountants and auditors) to fulfil some of Sur-Seal, Inc.'s functions or to perform other important services (eg. IT functions, data storage services, share registry services). In that context, personal data may be disclosed to those external service providers. 

Sur-Seal, Inc.'s external service providers (including external professional advisers) may be located in a country which does not have laws that provide the same level of data protection as in your country. Sur-Seal, Inc. takes contractual steps to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal data when it is disclosed to external service providers (including, where necessary, execution of the European Commission's standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data). We also require external service providers to process your personal data only in accordance with Sur-Seal, Inc.'s instructions and applicable data privacy laws.
