5. Introduction

Privacy is a priority at Teradata. Privacy and information security are very important to us. Maintaining trust, securing private information, and respecting the privacy of everyone we encounter are paramount to us.

Protecting privacy is part of our culture, values and everyday conduct at Teradata. Our commitment to privacy and information security goes beyond what is written in this policy statement. That commitment is a part of our foundation and culture. Integrity, responsibility, being people-focused, and being dedicated to our customers are among our core values that we apply to all aspects of our business, including with regard to PDP. Trust and accountability are declared qualities for which we strive and that we recognize in our workforce, in our supply chain and with our business partners, including with respect to PDP. Our Code of Conduct includes commitments by, and expectations of, us and all Teradata employees, contractors and suppliers to protect data and comply with laws, including with respect to laws that pertain to PDP. We regularly train, reinforce, set the tone and example from management, and communicate with our workforce about the importance, requirements, standards and practices applicable to PDP at Teradata. Our Supplier Code of Conduct and our Business Partner Code of Conduct also incorporate the principles of the Teradata Code, as well as global laws and standards regarding PDP and the principles of the United Nations Global Compact and Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (“EICC”) Code of Conduct (which includes privacy-related ethics commitments). For more about our culture, values, codes of conduct, ethics and compliance program and related corporate responsibility initiatives, please see http://www.teradata.com/code-of-conduct/ and http://www.teradata.com/corporate-social-responsibility/ (see particularly the “Teradata Corporate Social Responsibility Report” linked to that webpage; for the version of that report which covers 2015, see pages 41 through 50 for reporting regarding our ethics-and-compliance-related initiatives, training, codes and results).

Privacy and information security also are important customer-relations, employee-relations, supplier-relations and business-partner-relations and satisfaction issues for us. We have written policies and often agree through contracts to help assure that we, our suppliers and our service-providers comply with additional PDP requirements, standards and practices, and to help assure that industry, customer, legal, regulatory and consumer expectations and requirements regarding PDP are respected and satisfied. More details concerning those laws, requirements, standards, practices and policies are set forth below.

6. Compliance, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework and Data Transfer Agreements


In addition to the compliance-with-laws and other commitments pertaining to PDP as set forth in the preceding section of this policy statement, Teradata, including Teradata Corporation and its U.S.-based controlled subsidiaries, Teradata US, Inc., Teradata Operations, Inc., Teradata International, Inc., and Teradata Government Systems LLC, recognizes, abides by, commits to comply with and self-certifies to compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework, and their underlying principles and subprinciples as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce, regarding the collection, use, retention, transfer, disclosure and handling of certain personal, individual and personally-identifiable information collected from or about residents or citizens of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), European Union (“EU”) or Switzerland. Those underlying principles include: Notice; Choice; Accountability for Onward Transfer; Security; Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation; Access; and, Recourse, Enforcement and Liability. More information is set forth below regarding how each of these principles is addressed at Teradata. Prior to agreement and implementation of the EUU.S. Privacy Shield Principles by EU and U.S. officials, Teradata also committed to comply with and self-certified to compliance with the predecessor U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework Principles.

For more information about the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework or to access Teradata’s Privacy Shield certification registration, please go to https://www.privacyshield.gov. To directly access the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield List, please go to https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.

To directly access information regarding the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework, please go to http://2016.export.gov/safeharbor/swiss/index.asp, and to directly access the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor List, please go to https://safeharbor.export.gov/swisslist.aspx.

For more information about the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework that preceded the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework or to access Teradata’s last U.S.-EU Safe Harbor certification registration, please go to the U.S. Department of Commerce website at http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/ or, while online, select the Safe Harbor logo above. To directly access the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor List, please go to https://safeharbor.export.gov/list.aspx or, while online, select the “We self-certify compliance with:” image above.

Teradata also takes measures to comply with EEA/EU/Swiss cross-border data transfer laws that pertain to PI by having in place express consents and written intra-group data transfer agreements among various Teradata subsidiaries and entities in the EEA/EU/Switzerland with various relevant Teradata subsidiaries and entities in United States and other applicable countries (“Data Transfer Agreements” or “DTAs”). The intra-group DTAs incorporate EEA/EU/Swiss-approved “Standard Contractual Clauses” (also referred to as “Model Clauses”) with respect to those data transfers. We also comply with EEA/EU/Swiss data transfer laws regarding PI with respect to other countries that have been recognized by them as having adequate protections for PI (e.g., Israel, Argentina, Canada and New Zealand) by complying with and/or being subject to the jurisdiction of the applicable laws and regulations of those countries for PI that is transferred to those countries. We have had a number of our intragroup DTAs in place since approximately 2008. We review, change, update and add to the intra-group DTAs as our business, entities, operations, offerings and data flows, and applicable laws, regulations, requirements and frameworks evolve; and, we intend to continue to do so over time. Teradata’s multidimensional approach to PDP compliance with respect to EEA/EU/Swiss data transfer laws and regulations enables us to comply with EEA/EU/Swiss data transfer laws and regulations by at least one of several different legally-recognized means, even if one of those mechanisms is deemed invalid, expired or inapplicable (e.g., such as was the case with respect to the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework prior to adoption of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework).

Teradata typically acts as a “data processor” with respect to PI we access, collect, use, process, retain, transfer, disclose or handle for one of our customers, and our customer typically serves as the “data controller” with respect to PI processed by or for that customer.

With respect to PI that we access, collect, use, process, retain, transfer, disclose or handle for ourselves, such as with regard to our own employees so we may manage, account for and provide their employment, compensation, benefits and human resources management (“HR data”) and with regard to visitors of our online Sites, Teradata typically serves as the “data controller.” Our service providers who access, collect, use, process, retain, transfer, disclose or handle PI for us typically serve as downstream “data processors” or “sub-processors” for us.

Overview regarding how we handle Personal Information when we are the “data controller”.

Teradata has accountability for PI that it receives under applicable Privacy Shield Principles or Safe Harbor Principles and subsequently transfers to a third party, as described in the Privacy Shield Principles and Safe Harbor Principles that are accessible through the corresponding links above. Teradata remains responsible and liable under those Principles if third-party agents who Teradata engages to process applicable PI on Teradata’s behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with those Principles, unless Teradata proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage at issue. With respect to PI transferred from the EEA/EU/Switzerland to Teradata in the U.S. or Teradata’s data processors or sub-processors, if there is any conflict between the terms of this privacy policy statement, Supplemental Privacy Terms or an applicable contract and the applicable Privacy Shield Principles or Safe Harbor Principles, the applicable Privacy Shield Principles or Safe Harbor Principles shall prevail and govern.

Questions, Issues, Complaints and Disputes. Teradata commits to try to address all questions, concerns, complaints and disputes you may have with us regarding your privacy and our collection or use of your PI. You may submit questions, concerns, complaints and disputes directly to Teradata at the e-mail or mailing addresses set forth under the “Contact Us” heading of this document, or through the Teradata Ethics Helpline, also as set forth under the “Contact Us” heading of this document. With respect to PDP-related complaints and disputes, we commit to respond within a reasonable timeframe, not to exceed 45 days, and include a description of our assessment of the merits of the complaint/dispute/problem and of how we will rectify the complaint/dispute/problem

Dispute Resolution. Teradata also has committed to referral of all unresolved PDP complaints/disputes from EU, EEA or Swiss citizens or residents regarding their PI transferred to or for Teradata in the U.S. to an independent dispute resolution services provider and dispute resolution mechanism. The provider for such PI-related complaints/disputes is the International Center for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR”), international division of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and the dispute resolution mechanism is the ICDR/AAA International Arbitration Rules, based on documents only and as modified by applicable ICDR/AAA Privacy Shield Procedures or applicable Safe Harbor Administrative Procedures. Consistent with the principles of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework, if you are subject to such a framework you may initiate and proceed with this dispute resolution mechanism without any filing fees or dispute-resolution-provider administrative costs being borne by you (i.e., Teradata will be responsible for all filing fees and dispute-resolutionprovider administrative fees for such dispute resolution mechanism). If Teradata does not timely acknowledge or satisfactorily address your PI-related privacy complaint/dispute/problem within 45 days after our receipt of your notice, you may contact the ICDR/AAA and initiate that independent dispute resolution process. For online access to information about the ICDR/AAA Privacy Shield or Safe Harbor programs or to initiate a complaint under the ICDR/AAA Privacy Shield or Safe Harbor Programs, please visit http://info.adr.org/safeharbor/. For citizens and residents of countries that are not subject to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework or U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework, or to the extent your home country does not recognize the above-described dispute resolution provider or dispute resolution process as valid, but who have unresolved privacy-related complaints about or disputes with Teradata, complaints/disputes may be referred to the AAA and resolved in accordance with the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules (see http://www.adr.org), the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, U.S. Department of Commerce or a data protection authority (“DPA”), court or other forum of competent jurisdiction over the applicable Teradata entity and the data subject. Irrespective of the foregoing, all complaints and disputes regarding HR data that includes employee PI is subject to jurisdiction of the applicable Data Protection Authority for the country/location of the relevant Teradata employee (including applicants and former employees and their families and beneficiaries regarding whom PI is disclosed to or obtained by Teradata).

Teradata’s compliance with this privacy policy statement is subject to monitoring and enforcement by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S Federal Trade Commission, and Teradata will cooperate with applicable national Data Protection Authorities with respect to such compliance and any complaints/disputes arising from residents or citizens of that country. We also commit to maintain records regarding implementation of our PDP policies and make them available upon request by U.S. authorities or the above-designated independent dispute resolution provider. And, we commit to appoint a designated Data Protection Officer (“DPO”) within Europe and each applicable country where and when required by applicable law, such as under the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) when it begins to become effective in 2018.

We also strive to comply with other accessibility laws, requirements and standards that may apply to our Sites, depending on location and local laws (for example, see the “Teradata Accessibility” link posted at http://www.teradata.com/corporate-socialresponsibility/ regarding our accessibility policy statement for Ontario, Canada, which is intended to align with requirements of Ontario, Canada, laws)).

We also have in place physical, technical, procedural and administrative safeguards designed to implement reasonable and appropriate security measures and protect PI from unauthorized access, disclosure and use. Teradata uses security protocols and mechanisms to exchange and transmit sensitive data, such as sensitive financial account data. When sensitive data, such as a credit-card or payment-card account number or security code is entered on our Sites, we encrypt it using secure socket layer (“SSL”) technology (or like replacement technology that is at least as secure as SSL).

Teradata also has developed and complies with standard operating procedures designed to meet or exceed various internationally-recognized standards related to PDP to the extent relevant to us and our activities. These include:

We also publish a “Social Media Guide” for our employees, reinforcing that our PDP policies and practices also apply to their uses of social media. We conduct background checks and screening (subject to applicable laws) regarding proposed newhire employees; these are conducted with the prospective employee’s express permission or otherwise in compliance with applicable laws, and we have practices, procedures and arrangements in place with third-party service providers who assist us with background checks and screening to assure that the rights of individuals are honored and that their PI is not used or disclosed for any illegal or impermissible purpose. Newly-hired employees also are required to sign agreements and acknowledgements to agree and verify they will protect, not make unauthorized use of, and not make unauthorized disclosure of private and confidential information to which they may have access through Teradata, and they confirm such each time they log-on to our network and systems, as well as acknowledge and confirm that they are granting us permission to monitor their use of our network, systems and IT resources, with no expectation of personal privacy by them to the maximum extent permitted by law.

We publish a “Rules of the Road” IT Security reference document for all Teradata employees and contractors, as well as “Data Protection Awareness – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)”. In addition to PDP being addressed in our Code of Conduct for employees, our employee Code of Conduct training, our Supplier Code of Conduct and our Business Partner Code of Conduct, we also provide our employees with standalone periodic training regarding PDP.

We also have internal IT practices and procedures that pertain to PDP. Our internal written IT Information Protection Standards (“IPS”s) include:

  • IPS Administration (IPS 101)
  • Information Protection Data Center and Operations Requirements (IPS 102)
  • Application Development/Deployment Standards (IPS 103)
  • Secure Firewall Implementation (IPS 107)
  • User ID and Password Management (IPS 109)
  • Platform Compliance Monitoring, Administration & Oversight (IPS 115)
  • Server Operating System Security Requirements (IPS 119)
  • IT Service Production System Access Authorization Requirements (IPS 125)

We maintain and regularly update an IT Security internal online site for our employees where information relevant to information security is aggregated and made accessible to our employees.

Our main IT infrastructure production systems are operated from highly secure data centers that are designed and implemented to help assure PDP is achieved. Those systems are routinely backed-up, the back-up data is secured, and redundancy, disaster recovery and business continuity planning are built-in to our practices and procedures with respect to that data.

With respect to consulting, professional services and managed services activities we perform for our customers, we generally control and segregate access to PI that our customers possess or process, and comply with other industry-driven and customer-driven privacy and information security practices. For example, for most of our services engagements for deployments of our solutions at our customer sites or at our customer-selected data centers, we either do not have access to the PI in our customers’ data, or, where we do, we often do so solely through secure workstations and network connections provided and managed by or for the customer, used only for that purpose, and accessible by log-on credentials and other security measures only by our authorized personnel who are in ‘need-to-know’ positions with respect to that data. Typically, for our customer onsite solutions, we do not access or take possession of our customers’ PI or other sensitive data, nor remove it from our customers’ sites.

The same applies with respect to our Global Consulting Centers (“GCC”s), such as those in the Czech Republic, Philippines, India, Pakistan and China. The services performed at those centers typically do not involve access to or possession of customer data that includes PI, particularly with respect to PI that is individually-identifiable or individually-sensitive. In the exceptional circumstances where we do, strict controls, practices and procedures are applied to secure and limit access to the PI. Where applicable laws or contract provisions prohibit or restrict access to solutions or information from locations, from countries, or by citizens or residents of other than where the solution or data is located, we implement procedures to help assure we comply with those requirements.

When we run research, development or technical support tests and benchmarks against data for our customers, we rarely have access to or take possession of actual unmodified individually-identifiable PI. If PI is involved, sensitive individually-identifiable data elements typically are encrypted, obfuscated, truncated or otherwise made anonymous. In the exceptional circumstances where we must access or take possession of sensitive individuallyidentifiable PI for critical testing, support or benchmarking, strict controls, practices and procedures are applied to secure and limit physical and electronic access to the data and data rooms, data centers and facilities involved.

When we host solutions for our customers, it is required to be done on systems that are separate from the IT infrastructure we use and access to manage and operate our own business. The data of various hosted customers is segregated from the data of other customers. Hosted solutions are operated from highly secure third-partyowned or third-party-operated data centers designed and implemented to help assure that PDP is achieved. The solutions we host, as set forth in the applicable hosting contracts or in standards incorporated into the contracts with our respective customers, are routinely backed-up, the back-up data is secured, and redundancy, disaster recovery and business continuity planning are built-in to our practices and procedures with respect to the hosteddata. Typically, with respect to environments where we serve as a data processor for our data-controllercustomers, the hosted-environment and cloud-environment contracts make it the primary responsibility of our data-controller-customers to specify their policy, government and industry regulatory compliance requirements. We work with our hosted customers and cloud customers to help assure their data is stored, processed and managing according to their requirements. Teradata also, upon occasion and as set forth in the applicable engagement contract, functions in the role of trusted advisor to our customers and will help identify and bring to the attention of our customers PDP risks or non-compliance issues we notice in the normal course of business while providing services, hosted offerings or cloud offerings.

Written contracts typically are entered into and apply to each circumstance applicable to us that involve PI. For example, written contracts are entered where: our solutions are located and services are performed onsite for a customer; we provide services offsite through a GCC; we are running tests, benchmarks or providing technical support services; or, we are hosting a solution for a customer. Also, contracts may be entered into between various Teradata subsidiaries to help assure and document that adequate PDP measures are implemented, information is secured, and applicable laws are complied with, including those that pertain to trans-border data export, transfers and flows (e.g., adopting and applying EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework principles, U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework principles or EU Standard Contractual Clauses (Model Clauses) in Data Transfer Agreements). We also enter into written contracts with our applicable service providers, contractors and subcontractors; these contracts typically include or incorporate confirming and supplemental PDP and compliance-with-laws obligations.

9. Principles – Privacy Shield and Safe Harbor Alignment

The following further identifies the key principles aligned with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the U.S.- Swiss Safe Harbor Framework that we apply to data privacy and privacy-related information security at Teradata, particularly with respect to Personal Information from or about consumers, employees and other individual online visitors. We apply these principles even where and to the extent the Privacy Shield or the Safe Harbor may be deemed invalid or inapplicable, and we also apply them through Data Transfer Agreements and practices intended to comply with applicable local/country PI and PDP laws and regulations. For each of the identified principles, the following aligns with and provides additional information about how those principles are incorporated into, and applied by us through, our polices, practices and procedures. Relevant statements and portions of the preceding sections of this policy statement also apply to and are incorporated into this section by reference.

9.1 “Notice” Principle

Through this policy statement Teradata provides notice to online visitors, consumers, employees, customers, partners and others (“you”) with clear and accurate information about our policies, practices and procedures that pertain to the collection, use, retention, transfer, disclosure and handling (“Use”) of Personal Information (“PI”), and our compliance with privacy and data protection (“PDP”) standards and laws.

Teradata believes and recognizes that you have the right to be informed about PI being collected regarding you individually and about the intended-use of that PI. We believe and recognize that you have the right to determine whether you will allow collection or other Use of your PI, to know the purpose of that collection and Use, and to unsubscribe or otherwise opt-out if you do not wish, or no longer wish, to have some or all of your PI collected, Used at all, or Used for a particular purpose (other than as expressly set forth herein, such as when necessary in connection with a transaction, employment or legal-compliance obligations). We also believe and recognize that you have the right to review individually-identifiable PI about you that we collect, retain or otherwise Use, and you have the right to have a way to update and correct that PI.

Teradata will apply these principles through practices that have the equivalent effect of this policy regardless of the specific technologies utilized for the collection or other Use of your PI. We also will apply these principles to your PI, whether it is in electronic or paper form.

Notice of what we do. Teradata provides analytic data solutions, including integrated data warehousing, big data analytics and business applications for customers worldwide.

These entities and assets have been, or may be, integrated into Teradata, and are subject to and covered by this policy statement and any applicable pre-acquisition privacy policy provisions that applied at the time of data collection. To the extent that these or any other entities or assets of Teradata are sold, transferred or spun-off and such includes your PI, the same principles set forth in the thenapplicable version of this document will continue to apply to Teradata and will apply to the successor-transferee unless and until the successor-transferee provides you with legally sufficient notice of change. In 2016, we sold and transferred to TMA Solutions, L.P., an affiliate of Marlin Equity Partners, many of the assets, including data, of the Teradata Marketing Applications (“TMA”) portion of our business, including much of that which had been acquired, augmented, collected and Used with respect to the TMA-portion of our business pertaining to the previously-acquired Aprimo, eCircle, Appoxee and FLXOne businesses (for more details, please see the notice of that sale and transfer filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and posted at http://d1lge852tjjqow.cloudfront.net/CIK-0000816761/ec497448-a37f-481c-a0f3-861b951337df.pdf?noexit=true).

We also collect PI when you choose to participate in special offers, surveys or contests that we conduct or sponsor.

9.2 “Choice” Principle

Teradata commits to provide consumers and employees with information on the intended use of PI pertaining to them, and with mechanisms permitting the exercise of choice by them regarding disclosure of that information. More specifically:

Consumers – Teradata will not release PI to unaffiliated third parties, unless (1) the consumer requests it or expressly consents to it, (2) the data is provided to help complete a consumer-initiated transaction, (3) the disclosure is required by law, or (4) the consumer has been informed about the possibility of such disclosure and has decided not to opt-out (or has decided to opt-in, double-confirmed opt-in, or meet some other higher standard where that is expressly required by applicable law).

Employees – Teradata will not release PI to unaffiliated third parties, except and only as specifically provided for under (1) internal corporate policies, (2) as reasonably necessary for employment-related purposes and transactions, (3) the Employee requests it or expressly consents to it, (4) the data is provided to help complete an Employee-initiated communication or transaction, (5) the disclosure is required by law, or (6) the employee has been informed about the possibility of such disclosure and has decided not to opt-out (or has decided to opt-in, double-confirmed opt-in, or meet some other higher standard where such is expressly required by applicable law).

We also will respect your preferences and choices for how we contact you regarding marketing and promotional communications. We may provide you, for example, with opportunities to subscribe to e-mail lists or newsletters. If you previously signed-up to receive e-mailed information about our products, services, or special offers, but no longer wish to receive those communications you may opt-out from receiving some or all of those types of communications by selecting the ‘unsubscribe’ link, replying with ‘unsubscribe’ in the subject line in the e-mail, following the ‘unsubscribe’ or ‘preferences’ setting instructions appended to the communication, or communicating with us through one of the e-mail addresses or mailing addresses set forth in the “Contact Us” section of this document.

There are other circumstances in which we may share your PI with third parties. For example: we may disclose your PI to a third party when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law or a regulatory requirement, or to comply with a subpoena or court order; to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as identity theft, hacking, cyber-attacks or other cyber-crimes; to enforce a contract; to protect the rights, property, intellectual property, or safety of Teradata or a third party; or to protect other vital interests.

In addition, your PI may be transferred to another company that has acquired the stock, or all or part of the assets or operations of Teradata (or of an applicable Teradata business operation or Teradata organization), for example, as the result of a sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution, bankruptcy, receivership or liquidation. If such a transfer occurs, the acquiring company’s use of your PI will be subject to this policy and the privacy preferences and choices you have expressed to us. While we are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of your PI in compliance with this policy and to the extent reasonably possible, we cannot and do not promise or guarantee that your PI always will remain totally private.

9.3. “Accountability for Onward Transfer” Principle

The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework, HIPAA and other laws typically allow transfer of PI to a third party who is acting as a service provider, agent or “data processor” if the ultimate “data controller” takes certain steps to assure privacy and security protections. We may disclose PI to others, for example, in the following circumstances:

  • to business Partners and subcontractors who need to access it in connection with the performance of requested services or solutions, or as otherwise appropriate in connection with a legitimate business need;
  • to service providers who host or facilitate the delivery of online training, seminars and webinars;
  • to e-mail-delivery services and other technology providers;
  • to third parties who may assist in the delivery of marketing materials, technical support services, or other products, services or other information;
  • with authorized reseller/distributor/marketing Partners or our subsidiaries or branches so they may follow up with you regarding products and/or services;
  • Applicant Information and Employee data may be shared, on a confidential and use-restricted basis, with our affiliates, subsidiaries, recruiting advisors and service providers, as well as other third parties such as background-screening organizations for the purposes described in this policy statement and for employment-related activities as set forth elsewhere in this document and as reasonably necessary in connection with an Employee transaction or communication, compensation, benefits, tax and social benefits reporting and withholding, and other legal, compliance and reporting obligations;
  • in connection with the sale or transfer of all or part of our business;
  • as required or permitted by law, or when we believe in our sole discretion that disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, law-enforcement or government request, or other legal process; and
  • to any other third party with, and to the extent of, your affirmative consent.

In these situations, we will take reasonable steps to require the recipient to protect your PI in accordance with relevant applicable principles of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework, or otherwise take steps to ensure your PI is appropriately protected.

Trans-border data transfers/flows. Teradata is a global company with technical systems and processes that cross various national and other jurisdictional borders. PI collected by us may be transferred across country, state, provincial and other jurisdictional borders, and stored or processed in the U.S. or any other country in which we maintain facilities for the purposes of data consolidation, storage, information management and other Use. Transborder data transfers of PI are performed only if and as permissible by applicable law and, where required by applicable law, with the consent of the data subject. We will handle your PI collected by our systems in a consistent manner, as described in this policy statement, any applicable Supplemental Privacy Terms and your affirmative consent, even if the laws in some relevant countries or jurisdictions may provide less protection for your PI. Our privacy practices are designed and intended to help to protect your PI all over the world.

If consumer or employee PI is provided to an affiliated third party (e.g., subsidiaries, service providers, contractors or other Partners), Teradata will require the third party to adhere to similar PDP principles as those that apply to Teradata and that provide for keeping such data confidential and not Using it for any other purposes. Teradata typically achieves this by including express contractual provisions in its written agreements with third parties, express provisions in the Teradata Code of Conduct, express provisions in our written Supplier Code of Conduct, express provisions in our Business Partner Code of Conduct, express provisions in our written policies, express provisions in our privacy policy statements (such as this document), express provisions based on EU Model Clauses in written Data Transfer Agreements and other notices and acknowledgements that applicable laws must be complied with and that applicable principles of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework must be satisfied. When Teradata serves as a data processor for others, such as for our datacontroller-customers or as a data processor to another data processor, Teradata typically is required by express contractual provisions to be accountable to the third party and the impacted data subject for breaches by Teradata or Teradata’s downstream data processors with respect to PI. To the extent, if any, that a downstream “data processor” for Teradata breaches its legal or contractual duties with respect to PI that it obtains through or for Teradata and it fails to provide full legally-sufficient remedies directly to you for such breach, Teradata will be accountable for providing you with full legally-sufficient remedies for such breach and will be subject to complaint and remedy jurisdiction as set forth in this document.

9.4 “Security” Principle

Teradata will take appropriate measures to ensure that PI is protected from unauthorized access and disclosure, including limiting access to such information only to those employees, service providers and Partners who have a legitimate business need to know it for a purpose permitted by this policy statement, applicable Supplemental Privacy Terms, or with express consent.

We take reasonable physical, administrative and technical measures to protect PI under our control from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. In particular, we employ the following security measures, among others:

Security policies. We design, implement and support our IT infrastructure, data center operations, cloud operations, products and services according to documented security policies. At least annually, we assess our policy compliance and make necessary improvements to our policies and practices.

Employee training and responsibilities. We take steps to reduce the risks of human error, theft, fraud, and misuse of our facilities. We train our personnel on our privacy and security policies. We also require our employees to sign confidentiality agreements. We also have assigned to an Information Security Officer the ultimate responsibility to manage our global information security program.

Access control. We limit access to PI only to those individuals who have an authorized purpose for accessing that information. We terminate those access privileges and credentials following job changes which no longer require such access and upon employment termination. We also have designated local or organizational data protection officers, stewards or managers for various locations and organizations of the company, and where required by applicable law.

Data encryption. Our policies and procedures require that we use encrypted connections for any electronic transfers of PI.

Unfortunately, no security measures can be guaranteed to be 100-percent effective. It is important you understand that no site, system or network is completely secure or “hacker proof”, “cyber-attack proof” or “cyber-crime proof.” It is important for you to guard against unauthorized access to your passwords and the unauthorized use of computers and other electronic/data-access devices you own or control.

We strongly urge you to do your part and take measures to preserve your own data privacy and to protect and secure your own information. Among the practices you should consider and implement are: use differing passwords for differing accounts; use ‘strong’ passwords; use screen locks; be suspicious of and do not reply to e-mails that include your personal financial information; check web addresses carefully for fake, variant or apparentlymisspelled URLs; use e-mail and Internet Service Provider (“ISP”) anti-spam functionality, settings and processes; set your browser and device settings to the levels of privacy and security you desire; and, use, keep-updated, and apply desired settings for security and virus protection software tools on your devices. For information, tips and practices regarding online privacy and data protection, consider visiting an online group or site of your choice (e.g., considering your language, country, location, types of uses, types of data, types of devices and types of communications) that is dedicated to sharing information regarding data privacy and information protection. One you might find helpful and instructive, for example, is http://www.staysafeonline.org/ powered by the National Cyber Security Alliance, and its “Stop. Think. Connect.” initiative.

9.5 “Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation” Principle

Teradata will limit the collection and other Use of sensitive individually identifiable PI to that which is reasonably needed for valid business purposes or to comply with applicable laws. Any such data will be obtained by us only through lawful and fair means.

When you visit us online, we want you to feel secure that we are respecting your privacy. Individually identifiable PI we collect about you when you visit us online is the information you choose to provide by Registering or by providing other feedback or consent to us, subject to this policy and any applicable Site-specific Supplemental Privacy Terms. When we do receive that kind of PI from you, we do not share it other than for purposes and with other parties as permitted through this policy, through applicable Supplemental Privacy Terms, and when you have granted consent (such as when necessary in connection with a transaction, employment or legal compliance obligations).

Social Plug-Ins and Share Buttons. We also may use social plug-ins (e.g., a Facebook ‘Like’ button or a Google +1 button) on or in connection with some of our Sites. When you visit a Site that contains a social plug-in and the social plug-in is selected or enabled, your browser establishes a direct connection to the social plug-in operator’s server. The social plug-in operator directly transfers the plug-in content to your browser. The social plug-in provider receives information about your access to sites. We have no influence on the data gathered by the plug-in operator. The Online Visitor is responsible for managing his or her privacy consents, settings and preferences, and addressing with the third-party operator, privacy issues that pertain to his or her use of, or plug-in with, third-party social media sites.

We use the social plug-ins of the following networks:

  • The “Like” button by facebook.com which is ultimately run by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”), you can identify this plug-in by the white “thumb up” on a blue ground or a white “f” on blue ground;
  • “+1″ button of the social network Google Plus, run by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”), the plug-in of “+1” can be recognized by its sign “+1” on a white or colored background;

Your participation in such forums and what you disclose in such forums is totally your own voluntary choice. If you make that choice and include your PI in your posts, it may lead to use of your PI by others, and we will not responsible for any information you decide to make available on or through such forums, nor for any contacts of you by others as a result of your participation in, or your own disclosures on or through, such forums. We reserve the right to monitor such forums operated by, for or about us, and Use information legally posted on or through them. There should be no expectation of privacy by anyone with respect to the content of postings or disclosures he or she voluntarily makes on or through such forums.

IP addresses and “clickstream” information. Some online clickstream data includes User Information. User Information is information about computers that interact with our systems. This includes:

Web server logs. In the process of administering our Sites, we maintain and track usage through web server logs. These logs provide information such as what types of browsers are accessing our Sites, what pages receive high traffic, and the times of day our servers experience significant loads. We use Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses to analyze trends, administer Sites, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We use this information to improve the content and navigation features of our Sites. Anonymous or aggregated forms of this data also may be used to identify future features and functions to develop for our Sites and to provide better service or a better user experience. We do not link this information with individually identifiable PI. We also reserve the right to, and may, share aggregated and anonymous information with third parties.

Web beacons. We and third parties also may employ web beacons on or in connections with our Sites or in connection with e-mails and other electronic/digital communications we send, distribute, or have sent or distributed for us. Web beacons are tiny graphics with unique identifiers, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons typically are embedded invisibly on webpages and other online or electronic/digital documents and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Web beacons also may be used, for example, in an e-mail, newsletter or other electronic communication to determine if it has been opened by the user or if web links contained in it have been selected by the user. Where required by law, we will ask you for your explicit consent to the usage of web beacons by us and will not use them without your consent. We are not, however, responsible for any third-party deployment or usage of web beacons.

In connection with our Sites (including e-mails and other electronic/digital communications), we also may use or allow analytics or third-party tracking services that also use cookies, flash-cookies, web beacons or other tracking technologies to track legally-permissible non-individually identifiable PI about Online Visitors to our Sites. When these services and their cookies, flash cookies, web beacons or other tracking technologies are used, it is done in the aggregate to capture usage and volume statistics and to manage content, and, absent your advance affirmative consent, not for any other purpose. Some of our business Partners, Internet advertisers, ad servers and ad networks also may use cookies, flash cookies, web beacons and other tracking technologies to collect information about users’ online behavior and use that information for analytics (e.g., Google Analytics) and to serve advertising aimed to be relevant to particular users (e.g., behavioral advertising) in connection with our Sites or links or advertising connected with our Sites. Some of our Customers, and their business partners, also may use cookies, flash cookies, web beacons and other tracking technologies and analytics in connection with their sites, emails, online advertisements or other electronic/digital communications which we host, process or deliver for our Customers. We have no access to or control over these third-party tracking technologies and no responsibility for them or with respect to deployment or use of those kinds of analytic technologies by or for another. This policy applies to and covers the use of such tracking and analytics technologies by and for Teradata only, and it does not cover or apply to the use of tracking or analytic technologies by any third-party.

We also may use User Information to help us prevent and detect security threats, fraud or other malicious activity, and to ensure the proper functioning of our solutions, products and services.

How we use personal information. We also may use PI for the following purposes:

To respond to your requests. These requests may include processing orders and processing downloads for product demonstration or evaluation.

To maintain or upgrade a system. Our technical staff may require periodic access to services data to monitor system performance, test systems, and develop and implement upgrades to systems. This may include providing technical support including through a customer support portal. Any temporary copies of services data created as a necessary part of this process are maintained only for time periods relevant to and necessary for those purposes.

To address performance and fix issues. On occasion, we may develop new versions, patches, updates, and other fixes to our programs and services, such as security patches addressing newly discovered vulnerabilities. In accordance with the terms of a Customer contract or order for such, we may remotely access a user’s computer, as permitted under the terms of an applicable contract, to troubleshoot a performance issue. We also may use such information to provide product updates and notices.

To provide informational services. We may use PI while providing online forums, such as user groups and bulletin boards. We may do so while delivering live or online events, such as training seminars or conferences, including third-party events sponsored or hosted by Teradata.

To meet legal requirements. We may be required to provide certain PI to comply with legally-mandated reporting, disclosure, or other legal process requirements.

To market products and services. We may use such information to inform you about products, services or events, and otherwise perform marketing activities, including for and to enable direct marketing and behavioral marketing and advertising.

Applicant/Employee information we collect. We also collect “Applicant Information” – individually identifiable PI such as name, home address, personal telephone number, resume and other information you voluntarily provide when you submit a job application to us, including sensitive information such as racial or ethnic origin, membership in a political association or trade union, or health information if you choose to provide it as part of the job application or other information form, either online or on paper (including voluntary disclosures you may make in connection with compiling government and government-contracting labor statistics). We also collect names and contact information for referrals and alternative-contact people if provided as part of the job application process. PI from references and alternative-contact people may only be provided to us by the applicant or employee; we instruct them that they may provide PI regarding a reference or contact-person only with the consent of the reference or alternative-contact person. Applicant Information is collected in the country where contact for the position is located and in the U.S. in a central Human Resources information repository. Applicant Information is used solely to assess the applicant’s qualification and skills, to communicate with the applicant, to verify the submitted-information, including reference and background checks to the extent permitted by applicable law, and for legal-defense-purposes as necessary. Applicant Information may be shared, on a confidential and use-restricted basis, with our affiliates, subsidiaries, recruiting advisors and service providers, as well as other third parties such as background-screening organizations solely for the purposes described above. Applicant Information is retained according to applicable laws and will be deleted or destroyed as required by applicable law. Applicant Information (including any changes or updates thereto) will be added to your employment record and may be Used for employment-related purposes if, when or after you have become a Teradata Employee. We also collect and otherwise Use Employee data and PI as set forth elsewhere in this document, and otherwise as reasonably necessary and in connection with the employment relationship, Employee transactions, Employee contracts, and Employee compensation, benefits, social-benefits-reporting and withholding, tax withholding and reporting, and the like.

Other referral-related information we collect. Certain communications and forums we operate in connection with our Sites and business, or we host or process for our Customers or Partners, may include the ability for you to “refer a friend” or “forward to a friend”, or provide a testimonial (collectively, a “Referral”). You must not make a Referral that discloses PI or confidential information you do not have the legal right to share with us; where consent from the referred-person is required by law or through a contractual obligation you have, then you are responsible for obtaining that consent before you provide the Referral. If you make such a Referral, we may track that you made the Referral and share the information that you made the Referral with the referred-person or party.

9.6 “Access” Principle

Teradata strives to maintain the accuracy of the PI we hold, including establishing, as appropriate, mechanisms allowing consumers and employees to have the opportunity to review and correct PI about them.

You may review and correct, and (to the extent not limited or prohibited by applicable law) have us delete, your PI that we hold by requesting it by e-mail or correspondence addressed to one of the applicable sources identified in the “Contact Us” section of this policy. When you do so, please provide your name, mailing address, and a clear description of the information you wish to review, correct or have deleted. We will respond promptly within the time limits established by applicable law, but at least within 30 days after your request. For your protection, we may ask you for additional information to verify your identity. In most cases, we will provide the access you request and will correct or delete any inaccurate information you discover. In some cases, however, we may limit or deny your request if the law permits or requires us to do so (for example, we may decline to delete data that we are required by law to keep a record of, such as for tax withholdings and payments). We encourage you to promptly update your PI with us if and as it changes.

If Teradata is engaged to host a solution, we may host Customer/Partner Constituent or “audience-member” information. We respect the privacy of all audience-member information, and (unless otherwise expressly agreed upon in writing) we view and treat it as the Customer’s/Partner’s confidential information. With respect to data hosted or processed in connection with our Marketing Applications business operations and offerings, often that data includes only basic contact information, such as name and e-mail address. We, however, may obtain any type of data about any type of individual that our Customer/Partner uploads or otherwise provides to us in connection with a hosted-solution or sends to us through online or offline mechanisms. In this regard, we do not control what audience-member information we may receive or host, or what steps the Customer or Partner, as the “data controller”, has taken to ensure that the data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. If a Customer or Partner uploads sensitive PI – such as social security or social benefit numbers, bank-account numbers, credit-card or payment-card numbers, passport numbers, driver license numbers, personal health information, access passwords or PINs, or EU sensitive PI, such as racial or ethnic origin, political or religious affiliation, or trade union membership status – (which generally would be contrary to our agreement with the Customer or Partner) we reserve the right to eliminate that information from our servers and/or suspend or terminate the Customer’s or Partner’s hosted-processing privileges, order or account with us. We will use audiencemember information only as permitted by our contract with the applicable “data controller” Customer or Partner. We will not share, sell, rent, or trade with third parties for their marketing purposes any audience-member information collected by us for a Customer or Partner, unless that Customer or Partner authorizes us to do so and represents to us that it has, and that it has sole responsibility for obtaining, all appropriate and any legally-required audience-member consents to do so.

For our hosted-solutions, our Customer or Partner typically has full control over its audience-member information, whether to correct, update or delete personally identifiable PI it has collected and uploaded. If a Customer or Partner receives a data-access request from an audience-member about whom we host data and the Customer or Partner would like our assistance in responding to that request, it may contact us and we will strive to respond to such requests no later than 30 days after our receipt of the request.

9.7 “Recourse, Enforcement and Liability” Principle

Teradata maintains procedures for verifying compliance with the commitments we make in this policy statement and to adhere to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework principles and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework principles. To do this, we complete a privacy compliance assessment at least annually, make improvements based on the results and use the results to self-certify annually to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Principles and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Principles. We also provide the resources identified above in the “Contact Us” section of this policy so you may raise privacy-related questions, issues, concerns, complaints and disputes with us, and we provide the “dispute resolution” process noted above in the “Compliance, Privacy Shield Framework, Safe Harbor Framework and Data Transfer Agreements” section of this policy statement to help assure you have a process and mechanism to enforce compliance with the standards set forth in this policy statement. As also noted above, we are subject to the jurisdiction of, and compliance monitoring and enforcement by, the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Federal Trade Commission and by applicable national Data Protection Authorities with respect to certain PI, such as PI in HR data. And, in connection with our planning for future improvement and for future compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) when it is scheduled to become effective starting in 2018, we also are monitoring, evaluating and preparing to commence GDPR-compliant and more robust, documented and verified DPD practices in the coming years, such as with respect to PDP compliance reviews, PDP due diligence regarding third-party vendors/service-providers, PDP risk assessments, PDP impact assessments, PDP-by-design practices and PDP-by-default practices.
