In addition, there will be circumstances where we obtain your personal information from other sources, such as joint marketing partners, social media platforms or persons with whom you are connected on social media platforms.Cookies and passive information collection
Pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs and similar technologies may also be used by us or our third party service providers to measure the success of marketing campaigns and compile statistics about communications and site usage.
Furthermore, and as is common practice, we may identify and compile information concerning your IP address (a number automatically assigned to your device by your internet service provider) which helps us to calculate site usage levels, diagnose technical problems and administer our websites and other applications.What will we do with your personal information?
Your personal information will be collected, held, used and disclosed by us in accordance with this Policy and applicable privacy laws. We may disclose or use your personal information for the purpose for which we collected it, as well as for related purposes where you would reasonably expect us to do so. This may include (but is not limited to) the following:

We may share your personal information with certain third parties (as described below).
How we share your personal information
We may share your personal information between different departments of KCA, across different brands of KCA, with Kimberly-Clark group companies (including our parent company, subsidiaries and global affiliates) and with third parties such as (but not limited to) marketing agencies who assist us with our promotional, marketing and research activities.

As a result of your consent, Australian Privacy Principle 8.1 will not apply to the disclosure.

Letters and resumes sent to KCA as part of an application for an advertised position, or sent to ascertain whether any positions are available, will be used to match applicants with available opportunities. If we consider that your application may be suitable to our current requirements, we, or a party acting on our behalf, will notify you and may also contact persons nominated by you as referees and ask them questions in relation to you. If your application is not suitable for our current requirements, but we feel that there may be a position for you in the future, we may keep a record of your application and contact you again if a suitable position becomes available. Please advise us if you prefer that we do not retain your information for this purpose.

Kimberly-Clark stands against slavery and human trafficking in any form. In line with our Values, Code of Conduct and Corporate Policies, and pursuant to the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015), California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, and the Australian Modern Slavery Act (2018) (Cth), this document describes the steps we have taken to combat slavery and human trafficking globally in the 2020 financial year (ending 31 December 2020).
This Statement has been developed through a process of consultation involving officers and senior managers of Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Kimberly-Clark Limited, Kimberly-Clark Europe Limited, Kimberly-Clark European Services Limited and the following three entities which are each reporting entities for the purposes of the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth): Kimberly-Clark Pacific Holdings Pty Ltd, Kimberly-Clark Australia Holdings Pty Ltd, and Kimberly-Clark Australia Pty Ltd and its subsidiaries.

One of Kimberly-Clark’s core values is being authentic, which means that we continue our heritage of honesty, integrity, and courageously doing the right thing. We were founded on these guiding principles, and they are the standards we hold ourselves accountable to, each and every day. Part of being authentic is speaking up, asking questions, and raising concerns when we need guidance or are not sure that laws, policies, or procedures are being followed correctly.
If any Kimberly-Clark employees suspect something is not right, we encourage them to speak up as soon as possible. Our Code of Conduct guides our behaviour and globally, Kimberly-Clark employees are encouraged to make disclosures under the Code through our K-C Compliance HelpLine. We take unlawful and unethical behaviour very seriously.
In addition to this global policy framework, Kimberly-Clark Australia has introduced this Whistleblower Policy to explain how eligible employees or other stakeholders may make disclosures where they are eligible to do so under the new Australian Whistleblower Regime set out in the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and Tax Administration Act 1953 (Cth).
Please view our Policy for further details of how and when it applies.
Kimberly-Clark’s high ethical standards and our Code of Conduct provide guidance for dealing with customers, suppliers, other employees, competitors and the public with integrity and in an ethical and appropriate manner.
The Code of Conduct and the corporate policies described within it apply worldwide.
