Your consent to our use of your Personal Information and Cookies
What information do we collect about you?
When someone visits the Site, our web servers automatically gather information that allows the site to communicate with the visitor's computer during the visit. We also track such information as the number of visits to the site, which parts of the site visitors select, IP address (the Internet address assigned to your computer from your Internet Service Provider), domain type, browser type (e.g., Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer), date and time of day. We use such information only for statistical purposes that help us design and administer the Site. This information does not disclose Personal Information that would permit us to identify or locate individual visitors.
Privacy concerns focus on Personal Information, that is, information that could identify a specific individual such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers. If during your visit you personalize the Site, complete an order form, enter a contest, or submit other information to us, you may provide us with Personal Information. We may collect and use that Personal Information to provide you with products or services, to bill you for products and services you request, to tell you about ExxonMobil products and services which we think may be of interest to you, or to communicate with you for other purposes. For employees and contractors, personal Information may also be used to manage and provide training and to obtain course assessments and self-assessments concerning skills and competencies from participants in order to identify and enhance training activities.
As explained below in the section on Dissemination of Information to Third Parties, we do not distribute or sell Personal Information to third parties for the purpose of allowing them to market their products and services to you; moreover, as explained in the Opt Out/Modify Information section, we will make a reasonable effort to remove your Personal Information from our database in such a way that you will not receive future communications from us, if that is your wish. If you notify us that Personal Information previously submitted to our site is no longer accurate, we will make a reasonable effort to make appropriate corrections. To facilitate our efforts to meet your request, it would be helpful if you could let us know the context in which you provided Personal Information, e.g. in connection with promotion of a specific product or service.
Information Placed on Your Computer (“Cookie”)
We may store some information (commonly known as a "cookie") on your computer when you look at or use the Site. This information facilitates customizing your use of the Site and helps to avoid the need for you to re-enter your details every time you visit it. You can erase or block this information from your computer if you want to. (The ‘help’ screen in your browser or computer user manual should tell you how to do this.)
We use third-party advertising technology to provide ads when you visit sites upon which we advertise. This technology will not process any information that can be used to personally identify you, that is it will not include your name, address, or other personal information. When you access an ad, a "cookie" file will be stored on your computer. This information is used to help manage our on-line advertising. To learn more about the third-party ad-serving technology, cookies, and how to "opt-out" please click here (note: you will be taken to a third-party website).
There are sections of the Website where we ask for Personal Information, for example, when you complete online forms to submit an enquiry, or apply for a particular product or service. Please ensure you also read any applicable Terms and Conditions for these products and services.
Personal information provided on our Website in connection with an application for employment will be processed in accordance with our Recruiting Data Protection and Privacy Statement.
If you contact us via email, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

Transfer, Protection & Retention of Your Personal Information
Dissemination of Information to Third Parties and Affiliated Companies
Communicating via the Internet and sending information, products, and services to you by other means necessarily involves your Personal Information passing through or being handled by third-parties, but ExxonMobil does not sell or distribute your Personal Information to third parties for purposes of allowing them to market their products and services to you.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, deliveries, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments and providing customer service. They have access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Please rest assured that, where needed, there will be appropriate contractual provisions in place to safeguard the confidentiality of your Personal Information.
Personal data collected by ExxonMobil may be transferred among its various divisions and affiliated companies, around the world. Such transfers may involve the transfer of Personal Information from Singapore to outside of Singapore or from countries within the European Economic Area to countries outside the E.E.A. By submitting data on the Site, the visitor provides explicit consent to these transfers, including transborder transmission of data covered by this Privacy Statement.
We may transfer the Personal Information we collect about you to countries other than the country in which the information was originally collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Statement.
Where applicable, we comply with applicable legal requirements of the Singapore Personal Data Protection Act providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal data to countries outside of Singapore regarding the collection, storage, use, transfer and other processing of personal data. The term “personal data” as referred to in the said Act has substantially the same meaning as and includes your Personal Information.
If you are located in the E.E.A. or Switzerland, we comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of Personal Information to countries outside of the E.E.A. or Switzerland. We have in place measures to ensure that recipients of Personal Information provide adequate protection to your information; these measures include, amongst others, contractual obligations for recipients to handle and protect the personal data in accordance with standard contractual clauses developed by the European Commission.
In addition, we have also implemented appropriate physical, technical, and administrative measures to safeguard and secure the Personal Information that we may collect from you. As soon as reasonably practicable, we will cease retention of your Personal Information when it is no longer necessary for any legal or business purposes. We also require the same from the our affiliates and other third party service providers who may be located within or outside of Singapore who are assisting us in providing services to our customers.
ExxonMobil does not seek any sensitive information from visitors to our Site, unless legally required to do so or where necessary, for example, in connection with recruiting or hiring. Sensitive information includes a number of types of data relating to: race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or other similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature. However, if you do provide such information, ExxonMobil accepts your explicit consent to use that data in the ways described in this Privacy Statement or in the ways described at the point where such information is disclosed including ExxonMobil’s Recruiting Data Protection and Privacy Statement.
