Purpose of This Privacy Notice
This Privacy Notice explains what KBR does with personal information provided to us through this Site, or if you are a Business Contact, during the course of your business dealings with us. It describes the information we collect and explains how we use, share, store and safeguard that information. This Privacy Notice also contains information on how to contact us, how to exercise rights that you might have under the law that applies to you in relation to your personal data, as well as how to contact us if you have a question or concern.
Collection and Use of Your Information
Much of our website does not require or request any form of registration or identification. However, some functions of our website may require registration, such as those that necessarily require us to identify you in order to answer a question that you may ask. It is up to you to choose whether you want to register for any programs through our site which may be available to the general public (such as investor relations webcasts). It may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of the site that are restricted to certain registered users.
If you register for a KBR program or service, or otherwise provide personal information to us through this website, KBR limits the collection of your personal information to that which is appropriate and proportionate for the intended use. For example, if you are interested in receiving specific types of investor relations materials about KBR, you will need to provide us with your e-mail address, so we can share that information with you. If you seek information more generally about KBR or its products or services, you generally will need to submit your first and last name and your e-mail, and you may choose to submit a phone number, your country location, and your company/employer to help us better respond to your inquiry or to contact you by phone.
Personal Information collected through this website may be used for marketing-related purposes where we have provided notice and obtained consent from the individual to do so, or where otherwise permitted by applicable laws. Individuals always have the right to withdraw consent (opt-out) of the use of their personal information for a marketing-related purpose, and can do so by contacting us at FHOUKBR-Privacy@kbr.com.
We collect Business Contacts’ personal information in a wide variety of ways. For example, Business Contacts may provide their personal information so that we can respond to a request for proposal or other inquiry about our products or services, when the Business Contacts offer products or services to KBR or invoices KBR for products or services provided to KBR, or in the form of a business card during in-person interactions at conferences or events. We also may collect Business Contacts’ personal information from publicly available sources, for example, from corporate websites or third-party websites, such as LinkedIn.
The personal information we collect generally is limited to Business Contact’s name and job tile, the name of the Business Contact’s organization, and related contact details the Business Contact choose to provide, such as phone number, e-mail address, and mailing and/or physical address. Occasionally, the personal information collected may include a Business Contact’s resume information, such as employment history, professional certifications or licenses, and education. We may use Business Contacts’ personal information for purposes of our business relationship with them and their organization, such as contract negotiation and administration, invoicing, exchanging business communications, and similar business interactions.
If a Business Contact requires physical access to a KBR facility or remote access to KBR’s information systems, we may request additional personal information in accordance with our information security protocols. In those circumstances, we will supplement this Privacy Notice with additional information specific to that collection of personal information at or before the point of collection.
Collection of Anonymous Computer Information /“Cookies”
Sharing Your Information with Third-Parties
KBR does not sell, lease or license your personal information. We may share your personal information with third parties in the following limited circumstances: With third-party service providers: We may, for example, retain a service provider to host all or portions of this Site, to help maintain and manage our databases, to assist in the recruiting process, or to conduct pre-employment screening. Service providers will be permitted to use your personal information only for the purpose(s) for which it was disclosed to them and in accordance with KBR’s instructions.
- With affiliated companies: such as grandparent, parent and/or subsidiary corporations, for the purposes for which we originally collected the information. We require that affiliated companies uphold a similar level of protection for your data as that described in this Privacy Notice.
- When required by law, such as when we respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, or a discovery request in civil litigation;
- To respond to misconduct: If we believe your actions violate applicable law, or threaten the rights, property, or safety of our Company, our users, or others, we may disclosure your personal information to law enforcement or other third parties involved in responding to the misconduct;
- Corporate transactions: If we sell some or all of our business, we may disclose all of the information that we have collected about you to a purchaser or, in due diligence, to a potential purchaser, but subject to a confidentiality agreement.
KBR will make such disclosures only as permitted by applicable data protection laws.
Security and Protection of Your Information
We use appropriate technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect data that pertains to you from loss, misuse, alteration, destruction or unauthorized access. We update these safeguards to address new threats and changes in the legal requirements. At the same time, you should recognize that no organization can guarantee the absolute security of personal information. We encourage you to take steps to protection the information that you share with us — for example, by closing your browser window when you have finished your visit to the Site.
Accessing and Correcting Your Information

International Transfer of Your Personal Information
KBR is a global company. As such, your personal data may be transferred to a member of the KBR corporate group located outside of the country where you reside. The locations of the members of the KBR corporate group can be found through the Company’s website, www.kbr.com/locations. The data privacy laws that apply to each member of the corporate group vary from one country to another, and may not provide the same level of protection as those in your home country. Nevertheless, KBR has adopted measures to ensure that the personal data entrusted to us via this website is adequately protected irrespective of where it is accessible or stored. Similarly, before transferring your personal information directly to any third-party service provider located in the United States or another third country, KBR will confirm that all necessary data transfer requirements have been satisfied.

KBR retains personal information provided to us via this website in accordance with business and legal needs, and then securely destroys that information. In some situations, we may choose to remove the personal identifiers or archive the data so that it is no longer processed or accessible. If you reside outside the United States, we retain your personal information for 12 months from our last interaction with you unless a shorter or longer retention period is required by applicable law. KBR maintains Business Contacts’ personal information for the duration of KBR’s business relationship with the Business Contact and for a reasonable period of time after the termination of that relationship.
