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, such as those that apply to customer information, Cummins relies on other types of data transfer compliance methods that comply with the Canadian data protection laws. If you have questions or concerns about Cummins’ data protection practices, you can email us at law.department@cummins.com, or write to us at Cummins Canada ULC,  7200 Rte Transcanadienne, Pointe-Claire, Quebec City, Canada H9R 1C2, attention:  Compliance Manager, Sales and Services.

In cases of onward transfers to third parties, Cummins shall remain liable under the Principles if its agents process such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Cummins proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

Disputes: In compliance with the Privacy Shield principles, Cummins has committed to cooperate with the E.U. data protection authorities (DPAs) with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning the company’s human resource personal information.

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 data protection 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.
