Privacy Policy

Updated: December 15, 2014

Sealed Air Corporation and its subsidiaries (“Sealed Air”) respect your concerns about privacy. This Privacy Policy applies to personal information we collect on sealedair.com and other Sealed Air websites that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the "Sites").

This Privacy Policy describes the types of personal information we collect on the Sites, how we may use that information and with whom we may share it. We also tell you how you can reach us to ask us to update your preferences regarding how we communicate with you or answer any questions you may have about our privacy practices.
 

Information We Collect

Information You Provide Directly to Us

When you visit the Sites, you may provide personal information directly to us, including:

  • Contact information, such as name, title, postal address, telephone number, and email address
  • Personal information in your résumé, and other information relevant to specific jobs for which you apply through our careers pages.  
  • While applying for a U.S.-based job, we also ask you to disclose your gender, race and veteran status.  We are required by U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity law to ask for this information, but you have no obligation to provide it.  Providing this information is strictly voluntary, and the responses you choose to provide – or your decision to provide no response – will not be considered as part of our hiring process.

Information Collected by Automated Means

When you visit our Sites, we and third parties may collect certain information by automated means, using technologies such as cookies, Web server logs and Web beacons.

Cookies are small files that websites  place and access on your computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify your browser or device or to store information or settings in your device. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies and how to restrict, disable or delete certain cookies. Please note, however, that without certain cookies, you may not be able to use all of the features of our Sites.  For example, we may use certain essential cookies that are set when you enter some of our Sites to assist with navigation during your visit or when you complete certain forms.  Blocking these cookies or deleting them earlier than their normal expiration date may cause problems.  For more information about cookies our Sites use and your choices with respect to certain cookies, please refer to our Cookie Notice.

Our Web servers may log information such as your device and operating system type, browser type, domain, device ID, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located. The Web server logs also may record information such as the address of the Web page that referred you to our Site and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet.

To control which Web servers collect information by automated means, we may place tags on our Web pages called "Web beacons", which are small files that allow us to understand the actions of visitors to our Sites.  We may use similar technology in email we send, which may enable us to know if you received the email, if the email was opened and if you clicked on any links in the email.

We use third-party Web analytics services on our Sites, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use cookies and Web beacons or other technology to help us analyze how users use the Sites. The information collected by such technology (including, where applicable, your IP address) will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to facilitate the evaluation of your use of the Sites.  To learn more about these providers’ use of cookies on our Sites and your options for opting out or controlling the cookies, please refer to our Cookie Notice.

Data about your activities on our Sites may be collected for use in providing advertising tailored to your individual interests on other websites and online services. You may choose whether to have your information collected for that purpose. We participate in advertising services administered by third parties.  The ad services may track your online activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of the automated technologies described above, and they may use this information to show you advertisements that are tailored to your individual interests and/or based on prior visits to our Sites.  We and third-party vendors may use first-party cookies and third-party cookies together (i) to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on past visits to our Sites and (ii) to report how our ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to our Sites.  To learn more about interest-based advertising generally, including how to opt out, click here or visit our Cookie Notice for more information and opt-out instructions.

Information Sharing

We may share personal information we collect on our Sites with our service providers who perform services on our behalf.  We may also share certain personal information among our affiliates and joint marketing partners for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, including for their marketing purposes.  We may provide personal information to our authorized distributors for the purpose of contacting you for follow-up regarding your requests or for keeping you informed of new activities. 

Subject to applicable law, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or legal process, such as a subpoena; (ii) in response to requests by government entities, such as law enforcement authorities; (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical, financial or other harm, injury or loss; or (iv) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual unlawful activity.  

We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (such as in connection with a reorganization, dissolution or liquidation) or take steps in anticipation of such a transaction.  

Third parties may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different Web sites when you use our Sites.  For example, third-party providers of certain embedded content and tools on our Sites (such as an embedded Twitter or Facebook feed, or an embedded blog commenting system from DISQUS) may collect personal information directly from you in connection with your interaction with such content and tools.  Such providers’ use of the information is subject to their own privacy policies, which we recommend you review.  We are not responsible for such providers’ privacy practices, which are not covered by this Privacy Policy.

Data Transfers

We may transfer the personal information we collect about you to locations in the United States or other countries that differ from the one in which the information originally was 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 internationally, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with applicable law.
 

Your Choices

If you would like to update or modify your personal information or subscription preferences, you may contact us as described in the How To Contact Us section below.  On certain Sites, you may be able to make these choices directly by logging into your account.  You also may unsubscribe from any of our promotional emails by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in any promotional email you receive from us. 

Depending on the data protection law of your country, you may have a legal right to obtain access to personal information we maintain about you.  In addition, if you believe the personal information is inaccurate, you may have the legal right to request that we correct or amend the information.  To make these requests, or to object to our processing of your personal information or withdraw consent to such processing (rights provided by the laws of certain countries), you may contact us as described in the How To Contact Us section below.

How We Protect Personal Information

We maintain certain administrative, technical and physical safeguards in an effort to protect the security of the personal information we collect on the Sites.  The security of this information is important to us, but despite our efforts, we cannot promise that that our security program will always eliminate all possible security risks.  Please help do your part by protecting your username and password and by notifying us of any suspected unauthorized account activity.

Our Sites may provide links to other websites for your convenience and information. Those websites may be operated by companies not affiliated with. Linked websites may have their own privacy policies, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. We are not responsible for the content of any websites that are not affiliated with us, any use of those websites, or the privacy practices of those websites.
