Treatment of Personal Data and Financial Information Privacy Policy
RKB Bearing Industries ("RKB Bearing Industries", "we" or "us"), which includes RKB Bearing Industries SA's subsidiaries and branches, is aware that you may wish to be informed about how any personal data and financial information ("Data") that you may send via the Internet to the RKB Bearing Industries Web Site ("Web Site") is treated. Accordingly we have developed this Privacy Policy ("Policy") to explain all our reasonable precautions to keep your Data secure.

This Web Site may include hyperlinks to other Web Sites that are not operated or controlled by RKB Bearing Industries ("Third Party Sites"). This Policy only applies to this Web Site and RKB Bearing Industries is not responsible for the content or the privacy practices of Third Party Sites.

This Policy may be updated and we therefore invite you to consult this Policy from time to time in order to familiarize yourself with any changes. The last paragraph of this Policy indicates when the Policy was last updated.

The terms of this Policy are without prejudice to any contractual terms you may enter into with us, which will take precedence over the terms of this Policy.

Data Transfer to RKB Bearing Industries and Trans-border Data Flow
Please be aware that the Internet is generally not regarded as a secure environment, and that Data sent via the Internet can be accessed by unauthorized third parties, potentially leading to disclosures, changes in content or technical failures. Data sent via the Internet may be transmitted across international borders even though both sender and receiver are located in the same country. Therefore, your Data may be forwarded to a country with a lower data protection level than exists in your country of residence.

RKB Bearing Industries accepts no responsibility or liability for the security of your Data whilst in transit via the Internet to us. In order to protect the privacy we would like to remind you that you may choose another means of communication with us, where you deem it appropriate.

In specific situations, RKB Bearing Industries provides an encrypted communication transfer for your Data (e.g. e-banking service), but this will be specifically indicated.
