Phillips 66 Global Recruiting Privacy Statement

Last Updated: 21 June 2024

Phillips 66 is committed to protecting your privacy.  This Recruiting Privacy Statement provides information regarding how we treat the personal data (also known as personal information) we collect from you and your associated rights when you apply to work for or when you are recruited by a company or companies within the Phillips 66 group of companies (“Phillips 66,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or “Company”).  If we hire you, we will supply you with all additional applicable employee-related privacy policies at that time. 

The term “process” (or “processes” or “processed”) refers to any action that is performed on your personal data, whether wholly or partially by automated means, such as collecting, recording, organizing, storing, modifying, using, disclosing, or deleting such data.  

In addition to this Privacy Statement, other privacy statements that apply to you may contain additional information about how we process your personal data, such as when we conduct on-line video interviews, pre-employment screening, and background checks.   If you reside in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or the United Kingdom, please visit the relevant notices to find out how we process your information.

What personal data does Phillips 66 collect?

Depending upon where you live, the company identified as the recruiting Phillips 66 company is called the “data controller” or “business,” and is responsible for the processing of your personal data, either solely or jointly with its affiliates within the Phillips 66 group of companies.  We collect your personal data for the operational purpose of evaluating your eligibility for employment with us, and therefore, we may collect the following categories of information:

We may collect and process certain categories of personal data known as sensitive personal data or special categories of personal data (depending on where you live) for the purposes explained below.  These categories of data include:

In the United States, in addition to these categories and as it relates to prospective employment with us, sensitive personal data also includes Social Security Numbers, state identification cards, and passport numbers. This data will only be collected and processed where required or permitted by applicable law.  

You are not required to provide information we may request, but if you choose not to provide it, your employment application may not be successful.

What are the sources from which we collect personal data?

Phillips 66 collects personal data (described in the section above and including sensitive personal information or special categories of data) from you online and offline in the following ways: 

We may draw inferences from any of the categories of data described above to help us tailor our communications to you. We may also combine information we get from a third party with information we already have, and we may combine information that we have collected offline with information we collect online.

Cookies, web beacons and other tracking

Cookies are small amounts of data generated by a website and saved by your web browser. Their purpose is to remember information about you. Our websites may use cookies to track the number of times you have visited our websites, to track the number of visitors to our site, to analyze visitors’ experience with our sites, to store data that you may provide (such as preferences), and to store technical information related to your interactions with our websites and applications.  We may also use session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, to store your username, to facilitate movement around our sites, and other information useful in administering your session on our sites.

Our websites may also contain web beacons, which are small, transparent image files.  Web beacons allow us to count the number of users who have visited pages of our sites.  We may also include web beacons in promotional email messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon, including whether the recipient clicked on a link in the email or forwarded the email to another person. 

Here are some of the types of personal data collected when visiting our website and mobile application:

Tracking Options and “Do Not Track” Signals 

Most internet browsers automatically accept cookies, but you may adjust your browser, operating system, or mobile device settings to limit certain tracking, decline cookies, or notify you when a cookie is being placed on your computer or device.  If you choose not to accept cookies while using our Services, you may not be able to experience all the features of our sites or applications.  You can typically delete existing cookies, although this means that your existing settings will be lost, such as stored usernames and other preferences.  While you may be able to disable the use of cookies through your browser or device settings, the Phillips 66 Services currently do not respond to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from your browser or mobile application due to lack of standardization regarding how that signal should be interpreted.

For what purposes do we use your personal data?

We process personal data of applicants only as may be necessary: 

Where processing is legally required to be based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and subject to applicable local law providing otherwise.  This will not affect the validity of the processing of your personal data prior to your withdrawal of consent.

We may also use your personal data in other ways as required or permitted by law, such as dispute resolution, litigation or defense of claims, or for analytical and demographic purposes where you cannot be reasonably identified because personal data is aggregated and/or in an anonymous format. 

We also collect and process your personal data to comply with our legal and regulatory/government obligations related to our hiring practices; to protect your vital interests or those of another natural person if required; and/or for our legitimate business purposes, including:

Sensitive Personal Data/Special Categories of Data 

During the pre-employment process, we may collect and process sensitive personal data (also known as special categories of personal data, depending on where you live) such as your nationality, racial and/or ethnic origin, and health-related information in our medical questionnaire for the purposes of making accommodations during the interview process; assessing your eligibility for certain positions and your fitness to work certain jobs; for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or to ensure equal employment opportunities as permitted or required by local law.  We only collect and use your sensitive personal data to fulfill our business purposes related to the consideration of your employment with us, and we do not use such information to infer any other characteristics about you.

We do not sell and have not sold your personal data or transferred personal data to third parties to use for their, or our own commercial benefit

To whom do we disclose your personal data?

The personal data we collect from and about you may be disclosed to third parties, including: 

International transfers in global operations

We may transfer personal data to and store personal data in countries other than the country where it was collected or from where you accessed our websites or applications.  Those countries may have different data privacy and protection laws than the countries from which the personal data was collected or from which you accessed our websites or applications.  To the extent required by applicable law, we will take measures to protect personal data so transferred or stored.  For example, we implement Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission and United Kingdom and use similar contractual obligations to comply with applicable laws of other jurisdictions including data processing agreements in the United States.  By choosing to apply for employment, including use of our websites and applications, and submitting personal data to us, you consent to the transfer of such personal data outside of your country of residence.

How long do we keep your personal data?

We store personal information about you on computer systems operated by us or our service providers. As a regulated company, we keep various records that contain personal information in accordance with applicable state and federal regulations, or pursuant to contractual obligations. In general, we aim to keep personal information only for as long as necessary and only for the reason(s) we collected it. It may be necessary to keep personal information longer than our official retention periods for legal or regulatory reasons, including litigation. To support us in managing how long we hold personal information and our record management, we maintain a data retention policy which includes clear guidelines on retention and deletion.

We consider the following criteria when determining how long a particular record will be retained, including any personal information contained in that record:

The same personal information about you may be included in more than one record and used for more than one purpose, each of which may be subject to different retention periods based on the factors listed above.

Security Measures

We use technical, administrative, and procedural measures to safeguard your personal data from unauthorized access or use.  We use, and we require our service providers to use, industry standard security measures for securing and protecting personal data, which may include measures such as encrypting data in transit and at rest, as well as limiting access to personal data on a least privilege basis (i.e., giving each user access only to personal data needed to perform their specific job duties).  No such measure is ever 100% effective though, so we do not guarantee that your personal data will be secure from theft, loss, or unauthorized access or use, and we make no representation as to the reasonableness, efficacy, or appropriateness of the measures we use to safeguard such data.

Linked Websites

Our websites and applications may contain links to other websites, including those of other companies, organizations, and publications. These linked websites operate independently from our websites and applications, and we do not control and are not responsible for the content, security, or data privacy practices used by other entities.  You should review the privacy statements of those linked websites to determine how they protect and use your personal data.


Our recruiting and career application websites and applications are not directed to children under 16 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect any personal data from children under 16.  If we learn that we collected the personal data of a child under the age of 16, we will use reasonable efforts to delete such information from our systems promptly.
