E.U. - U.S. Privacy Shield Website Privacy Statement
This website Privacy Shield Notice is intended to inform you about Cummins Inc.’s adherence to, and compliance with, the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce, with respect to the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States. For more information about the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield, or to view Cummins’ Privacy Shield certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.
Scope: Cummins has certified to and confirmed its adherence to the Privacy Shield framework for human resource personal information pertaining to residents of the European Union (E.U.) and European Economic Area (E.E.A.) which is transferred to the U.S., in relation to Cummins’ business activities. Cummins limits the transfer of that information to the U.S. to situations where it has a legitimate business interest in transferring that information.
Third Party Transfers: Cummins entrusts certain personal information pertaining to E.U./E.E.A. individuals to third-party partners who assist with the company’s human resource activities, or who have regulatory or legal oversight responsibilities in relation to those activities. This may include, for example, organizations that assist with job applicant websites, immigration, or providing pensions or benefits to employees or retirees. Cummins take steps to ensure that the third parties entrusted with personal information that it collects under its Privacy Shield certification uphold an equivalent level of protection for the data, and understand that there can be legal consequences to the company if its business partners mismanage the data entrusted to them.
Disputes: In compliance with the Privacy Shield principles, Cummins has put in place a dispute resolution process that is designed to evaluate and resolve any claims or complaints. Individuals may contact the company by writing to us at: Cummins Inc., 301 East Market Street, 5th floor, Indianapolis, Indiana USA 46204, or emailing us at: email@example.com. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Cummins will respond to the individual submitting the grievance within forty-five (45) days of receipt.
Third Party Dispute Resolution: Cummins has committed to cooperate with the E.U. supervisory authorities with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints. Individuals who believe their personal information has been mismanaged by Cummins in relation to the company’s Privacy Shield commitments have the right to contact the E.U. supervisory authorities for more information or to file a complaint. The services of E.U. supervisory authorities are provided at no cost to you.
Regulatory Oversight and Enforcement: Cummins is subject to investigatory and enforcement authority of the U.S. and E.U. agencies who oversee the Privacy Shield framework, namely the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the relevant European supervisory authorities. Individuals also have a right to file a complaint with those oversight agencies, particularly in the event that the individual is not satisfied with the resolution of the matter by the company.
Right to Binding Arbitration: Under limited circumstances and in accordance with the Privacy Shield framework, E.U./E.E.A. individuals can also seek binding arbitration before a Privacy Shield Panel.
Rights of Individuals to Access Their Data: E.U./E.E.A. individuals have the right to access personal information about them, and to limit use and disclosure of their personal information. In certain situations, such as where the data is incorrect or was collected inappropriately, the individuals also have the right to request amendment or erasure of their data. Cummins committed to respect and uphold those rights. Should you wish to exercise those rights, you may contact us by writing to us at 301 East Market Street, 5th floor, Indianapolis, Indiana USA 46204, or emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that there are certain limitations on these rights, as described in the Privacy Shield framework.
Law Enforcement Requests: Cummins may be required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including compliance with national security or law enforcement requirements.
Updates: This Policy may be updated from time to time, such as in relation to modifications to the Privacy Shield framework, regulatory expectations, or changes within Cummins. These changes will not adversely impact the Privacy Shield protections that have been put in place by Cummins.

Cross-Border Transfers of Personal Information – E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield Certification
Like most global organizations, Cummins transfers (shares) some of the personal data that it collects and processes with relevant affiliates (personnel) in other countries. The data privacy laws that apply to personal data differ from country to country, and do not always offer a consistent level of protection to data that is transferred out of the country of origin. Nevertheless, Cummins takes steps to ensure that the personal data which is transferred to other countries is adequately protected at all times by the recipient, regardless of the country and the data protection requirements required by law in that location.
As part of the company’s data transfer compliance practices, Cummins has certified to and complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Human Resource Personal Information transferred from the European Union to the United States. The Privacy Shield principles are: Notice; Choice (Consent); Accountability for Onward Transfer; Security; Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation; Access; and Recourse, Enforcement and Liability. For more information about the company’s Privacy Shield practices, please see our Privacy Shield Notice or view our certification on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield website at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.
In relation to other data transfers, Cummins relies on other types of protections, such as use of the E.U. Standard Contractual clauses and intra-company agreements to ensure an adequate level of protection for the data. If you have questions about Cummins’ cross-border transfers or believe that your information has been mismanaged, you can email us at email@example.com, or write to us at Cummins Inc., 500 Jackson Street, Columbus, Indiana USA 47201.

Cookies Website Notice and Disclosure Statement
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored on a user's web browser. When the user browses the same website in the future, the cookie notifies the website of the user's previous activity. Cookies do not harm your computer in any way, and some are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, such as six months.
Yes. Like virtually all websites, we use certain types of cookies on our sites. This allows us to collect non-personal information through a variety of technologies. This helps us identify visitors who return to our site and tells us such things as how many users visited our site, the pages that were accessed, and whether there were any technical problems in loading pages or navigating through our site. By collecting this information, we learn what parts of our sites are the most interesting or valuable to our users, and can monitor overall interest in our websites. It also lets us spot technical problems with our site so we can correct them right away. This, in turn, helps us upgrade our websites and improve our offerings for our visitors.
Am I required to accept cookies to use the Cummins websites?
What information do you receive about me through cookies?
There are four general categories of cookies that are used on websites:
Strictly necessary (or essential) cookies.These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around a website and use its features, such as services you have asked for. Without these cookies, those services would not be available to you. This includes, for example, browsing as a registered user, accessing secure areas of the site, or making a purchase through the site. Like all public websites, our site uses strictly necessary cookies.
Performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how the website works. Like virtually all websites, we use performance cookies on our sites.
Functionality cookies. These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. This allows you to have a better experience while using the site. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. Like virtually all websites, we use functionality cookies on our sites.
Targeting or advertising cookies. These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization. Cummins does not use advertising cookies on its websites and does not allow third parties to use those types of cookies on its sites.
What happens if I choose not to disable cookies on my computer?
Unless you disable such technologies, by using our website and online services, you agree that we can place these types of cookies and related technologies on your device.
What are web beacons?
Some types of cookies collect aggregate information which helps us to improve our websites by providing information, for example, on loading errors and the most visited webpages. Certain pages on our site may contain web beacons (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). We uses web beacons to help display content to visitors and to generate statistics regarding web traffic and trends. Web beacons cannot identify you as an individual.
What are advertising cookies?
Advertising cookies are cookies that target an individual to purchase certain items based upon their web browsing practices. For example, if you browse golf clubs on the web, and if the websites that you use (or the search engine) has installed advertising cookies, you may see pop-up ads for other sites that sell golf products or have content relating to golf. Cummins does not use advertising cookies on its websites and does not allow third parties to use those types of cookies on its sites.
Does Cummins permit third parties to install cookies or similar web technologies on its websites?
As a general rule, we do not permit any third parties (such as advertisers) to install cookies on our websites or engage in behavioral advertising. However, on some of our websites, such as our social networking pages, it is possible that individuals have uploaded third party content, such as videos from YouTube or elsewhere, or embedded content and sharing tools from other third party sites. Since we do not control the dissemination of cookies by any sites that are not owned or operated by Cummins, you should check the relevant third party website(s) for more information about these cookies, and whether and how you may opt out of receiving them. Generally speaking, however, you may disable third party cookies by adjusting your browser settings. Instructions may be found at www.aboutcookies.org.
