EU Safe Harbor Participation
Dresser-Rand Company ("Dresser-Rand") recognizes that the European Union ("EU") has an "omnibus" data protection regime established pursuant to the European Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC) (the "Directive"). Among other things, the Directive generally requires "adequate protection" for the transfer of personally identifiable information about Dresser-Rand employees in the EU ("EU Employee Data") to Dresser-Rand operations in the United States. Dresser-Rand accordingly adheres to the requirements of the EU Safe Harbor Privacy Principles published by the US Department of Commerce ("Safe Harbor") with respect to certain limited EU Employee Data received in the United States from our affiliated companies in the EU. Dresser-Rand provides such employees with information regarding the data transfers that are covered by Safe Harbor via internal policies and procedures. Any employee in the EU that cannot resolve his or her issue directly with Dresser-Rand is permitted to contact his or her local data protection authority for further assistance and information.
