Oshkosh Corporation Website Privacy Policy

Effective Date: October 2018

Oshkosh Corporation, with its corporate office located in Wisconsin, USA and our affiliated business units are committed to being responsible custodians of the information you provide us and the information we collect in the course of operating our business.

Oshkosh takes your personal privacy seriously. This Privacy Policy describes how Oshkosh, as a data controller, may collect, use and share information.

This Privacy Policy describes:

The types of information Oshkosh collects

Oshkosh collects your personal data when you provide it to us, for instance by visiting our website, contacting us, meeting our team at a trade show or by entering into a contract with us. "Personal data" is any information that can be used to identify you or that Oshkosh can link to you, for instance your name and email address. Oshkosh may automatically collect certain information when you use, access, or interact with us via our websites, for instance via browser settings or cookies. Oshkosh may also collect information from other sources, such as credit reference agencies or social media platforms that may share information about how you interact with our social media content, or if you interact with us via our social media accounts.

All personal data you provide to Oshkosh or that we (automatically) collect is voluntarily. However, without providing certain data, for instance your email address, we may not be able to respond to your request or deliver our services.

Our websites and services are generally not directed to children under 16. Oshkosh does not knowingly collect personal data from anyone under 16 without parental consent. If you become aware that Oshkosh has collected personal data from a child under the age of 16 without parental consent, please let us know so Oshkosh can take appropriate action.

How Oshkosh uses the information Oshkosh collects

Oshkosh will only process personal data where it has a legal basis to do so. Oshkosh may use the information Oshkosh collects:

  1. To enter into a contract or settlement, or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract or settlement (such as account registration);
  2. To respond to your inquiries, to provide you with services that you request, to communicate with third parties in the handling of claims or complaints, to maintain business administration records and prevent fraud, which is our legitimate interest;
  3. To keep records and administration on how services were provided, claims and complaints were handled, including the documents underlying such services, claims and complaints, which is our legitimate interest;
  4. To understand how people use our websites and services, to operate, maintain and improve our website and services, to send direct marketing communications, which is our legitimate interest;
  5. To comply with legal obligations applicable to Oshkosh, such as respond to legal process or requests for information issued by government authorities or other third parties.

How Oshkosh may share the information Oshkosh collects

Oshkosh and its affiliated entities share information with each other or with third-party service providers for general business purposes pursued by Oshkosh, such as internal administration, billing, claim handling and services, and providing you or your organization with services.

Oshkosh and its affiliated entities may share information with third party data controllers (including law enforcement agencies and potential transaction partners) where Oshkosh and its affiliated entities have a legal basis to do so.

Oshkosh does not sell, rent, or otherwise share personal data with information that reasonably identifies you for their independent use except as expressly described in this Privacy Policy or when Oshkosh has a legal basis to do so, for instance with your prior consent.

Third-party services and content

Our websites may include integrated content or links to content provided by third parties (such as social media platforms). This Privacy Policy does not address the privacy, security, or other practices of the third parties that provide such content. We recommend considering the privacy policies applicable to third party websites prior to visiting those websites.

Oshkosh engages third parties that support the operation of our websites, such as analytics providers. These third parties may use technologies to track your online activities over time and across different websites and online platforms.

Protection and storage of the information we collect

Oshkosh deploys administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to safeguard the information that Oshkosh collects. However, no information system can be 100% secure. This means that Oshkosh cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal data. Moreover, Oshkosh is not responsible for the security of information you transmit to us over networks that Oshkosh does not control, including the Internet and wireless networks.

Oshkosh retains the information Oshkosh collects in an identifiable form as reasonably necessary and only for as long as required to fulfill the purposes for which Oshkosh collects the information and to comply with our legal obligations.

Where we process your personal data on the basis of our or a third party's legitimate interest, you may object to such processing at any time by contacting us at the address below.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Oshkosh may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. The effective date of the current Privacy Policy is noted at the top of this page. Oshkosh encourages you to periodically review this page.
