PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
- When you submit a request or electronically pass information to Phillips 66 (including, but not limited to, completing retail employment applications and credit card applications), you are sometimes asked to provide certain information, including, but not limited to, your name, address, date of birth and e-mail address. In the Retail Employment Application and on the various "contacts" pages, we ask for this personally identifiable information in order to facilitate your requests, provide personalized service and communicate separately with you. We do not sell, trade or rent your personally identifiable information with any third parties outside of Phillips 66. However, we may provide your personally identifiable information to a third party that provides services to Phillips 66, its affiliates, or subsidiaries.
- Because we rely on third party commercial software and programs to operate our servers, we may inadvertently collect personal information due to certain automatic functions or features contained in such software or due to certain software changes or upgrades. We will use reasonable efforts to remove any such information after we discover such information in our system.
- Phillips 66 encourages you not to submit any materials through this Web Site. In the case that You do submit information or documents, any material that you transmit to or through the Web Site will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. This policy serves to avoid potential misunderstandings or disputes regarding ownership of ideas. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, all unsolicited submission to Phillips 66 will result in your acceptance to give to Phillips 66 an unrestricted, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, display, publicly perform, transit and distribute such information. You further agree that Phillips 66 has the right to use, without any payment or accounting to you or others, any concepts, know-how or ideas that you and your representatives or agents transmit to or through this Web Site.

CLICK STREAM DATA
- As you browse the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each Web site you visit. This information, which is sometimes called "click stream" data, can be collected and stored by a Web site's server.

- Our Web Site may contain pages that are of interest to children under the age of 18, but we do not seek through this site to gather personal information specifically from or about children under 18. Because our software does not automatically distinguish visitors under 18 from other visitors, Phillips 66 requires users under 18 years of age to obtain the consent of a parent, guardian, teacher or librarian to view the Web Site. You agree to abide by such restrictions and not to help anyone avoid these restrictions.
- The Web Site is not directed nor targeted to children. Phillips 66 will not knowingly collect information from children.
