Personally identifiable information is collected from you directly and with your knowledge.
Cookies. Kimberly-Clark is committed to providing a website tailored to suit our professional customers' needs. Accordingly, we collect information from your use of the website through you actively submitting any personal details to this website, and also passively by means of "cookies"
A "cookie" is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while a user is browsing a website. When you access our site we use a cookie or cookies that identify your IP address and type of browser, and other anonymous information to help us administer this website, analyse use of the website, and provide users with a better website experience.
A "cookie" may also be used to track your personal use of this website. This will only occur when you have (a) submitted any personal details to this website, or (b) when you open a link in any email correspondence sent to you by or on behalf of Kimberly-Clark which directs you to this website. By submitting such information or opening these links, you are taken to consent to this tracking.

We will provide the opportunity for you to express a wish not to receive such communications.
We may also use pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising.

Interest-Based Advertising- Kimberly-Clark participates in interest-based (on-line behavior) advertising. This means that you may see advertising on our website tailored to how you browse or shop, or you may see advertising for Kimberly-Clark products on other websites based on your browsing behavior across websites. You may opt-out of such interest-based advertising through the same “opt out” methods identified in the previous paragraph.

Other Third Parties. We may share non-personal information with other third parties that are not described above. When we do so we may aggregate or de-identify the information so that a third party would not be likely to link data to you, your computer, or your device. Aggregation means that we combine the non-personal information of numerous people together so that the data does not relate to any one person. De-identify means that we attempt to remove or change certain pieces of information that might be used to link data to a particular person.
Security Measures. Kimberly-Clark takes precautions to protect your personal information. Sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, is collected on a web page enhanced with secure sockets layer protocol to protect the confidentiality of the data. No transmission of data over the internet or other public network can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. We make reasonable efforts to secure your personal information once we receive it, but we cannot guarantee the security of information you send to us.
