2. GOJO is a Global Company Headquartered in the United States.

GOJO is a global company with its headquarters in Akron, Ohio, U.S.A.

If you reside inside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and we transfer your PI outside the EEA, we will put in place appropriate safeguards so that the transfer complies with applicable data protection rules. GOJO relies upon the European Union’s approved standard contractual clauses when transferring your PI to a country, such as the United States, whose privacy laws are not adequate in the eyes of the European Commission. A copy of the standard contractual clauses we have in place may be requested at GOJOGDPR@GOJO.COM.

  • Processing is needed to perform a contract between you and GOJO. For example, we may ask for bank account information so GOJO can process payments if necessary.

We require that they only use or disclose your PI for the purpose for which it is provided, and that they use reasonable safeguards to maintain its accuracy, completeness and integrity and to preclude illegal access. This does not apply when we receive an order or request from a court or other government agency to provide them with your PI or in an emergency.
