Kimberly-Clark Professional Privacy Policy

Last Updated: April 28, 2020

It is Kimberly-Clark Professional’s (“KCP”) policy to comply with all applicable privacy and data protection laws. As a global company, KCP has separate privacy policies for its international offices. KCP requires our family of companies to protect your personal information in accordance with local laws and our policies. Each KCP internet Site has a different purpose and features depending on the products and offerings within any given country. If additional or different disclosures are required with respect to a given Site and/or country we provide those disclosures on the Site itself or in a separate website privacy statement. Each individual disclosure or additional statements supplements and amends the policy set forth on this Site, but only with respect to the KCP internet Site on which it is posted.

Note: The following statement is only applicable to the United States and Canada.

This Site is owned, operated and maintained by KIMBERLY-CLARK CORPORATION ("Kimberly-Clark"). At Kimberly-Clark, we recognize that visitors to our Site may be concerned about the information they provide and how we treat that information. This Privacy Policy addresses those concerns.
