Continental Resources Privacy Policy

Continental Resources, Inc. Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy

Continental Resources, Inc. (ConRes) and its corporate affiliates are committed to taking reasonable steps necessary to protect your privacy. Once you choose to provide your "personal data" to ConRes (any information by which you can be individually identified), ConRes will endeavor to make sure it is only used in connection with your business relationship with ConRes.

However, by submitting personal data to ConRes, you indicate that you consent to ConRes’s use of such data as described within the scope of this Privacy Policy. Should you have questions regarding this Privacy Policy, however, feel free to direct these to ConRes at webmaster@conres.com.

The ConRes Privacy Mission

ConRes may in the course of business collect personal data that is voluntarily provided by you at our web site. When you provide personal data to ConRes, the potential uses include, among others, providing requested information or educational materials, providing ConRes services via online access, or training or educational activities. Our policy is not to share personal data with unrelated companies, except as provided for in this Policy or as necessary in connection with internal information processing activities. We recognize that your data is confidential and we will take all reasonable measures to protect your data while it is in our possession.

Collection of Personal Data by ConRes

When you submit your personal data at this web site in response to a registration form or while accessing applications located via this web site, the data controller/administrator collecting the personal data for purposes described is Continental Resources, Inc. (ConRes). ConRes normally only requests limited business-related personal data, such as name, title, company address, email address, and telephone and fax numbers, and other information necessary to respond to your request. ConRes disclaims any legal duty to verify the accuracy of any personal data that you provide to ConRes.

Typically ConRes will ask for you to submit personal data at the following times:

  • Registration to gain access to certain areas of the site
  • When we have to respond to your request for further information
  • When we need to distribute requested reference materials, or products
  • Obtaining resumés submitted by you in connection with seeking employment
  • Evaluating satisfactory completion of prerequisites for educational program.

It is ConRes’s policy to collect personal data only when its collection is necessary. In any instance where non-mandatory information is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection.

Collection of Personal Data by ConRes’s Affiliates

When you link to the web site of a ConRes affiliate, or subsidiary, referred to below as "ConRes Affiliates," and you are asked to submit personal data, the data controller/administrator collecting the data for that web site or application shall be the applicable ConRes Affiliate as described in any supplemental Privacy Policy information provided. In such instances, you may be asked to review to the appropriate supplemental Privacy Policy information and, if applicable, asked to complete and submit necessary consent forms to assure ConRes’s and each ConRes Affiliate's compliance with the privacy laws, governing the collection and use of personal data in your country of residence.

Consent To Collection and Use

By voluntarily accessing the applications, services or information provided to you by ConRes and any ConRes Affiliate on their web sites you acknowledge that such access is requested by you to facilitate our mutually beneficial business purposes. ConRes and each ConRes Affiliate therefore reserves the right to deny access to such services or information by you, where you decline to provide requested consent, if such consent is required by law in your country of residence in order for ConRes or any ConRes Affiliate to process or transfer the necessary personal data. By voluntarily disclosing your personal data at a ConRes web site, you may be deemed to have granted your limited consent to the mutually beneficial uses reasonably contemplated at the time of your consent, including ordinary data processing activities by third parties on ConRes’s behalf, to the extent such consent is legally sufficient in your country of residence.

ConRes ordinarily uses your data to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your data to update you on the benefits and features of ConRes Products and Services and to provide you with information and material requested by you. From time to time, we may also use your data to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always do our best give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research material. We will also follow internal requirements for avoiding the delivery of unwanted mail to you, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited material, where applicable.

Consent To Export of Personal Data

Where collection of your information may be deemed to be "exporting" your personal data under the laws of your country of residence, you agree that providing your personal information to ConRes or a ConRes Affiliate located in a jurisdiction other than your country of residence shall be deemed your express consent to the transfer of your personal information outside your country of residence, to that of the designated data controller/administrator, for the mutually beneficial uses reasonably contemplated at the time of your consent.

Sensitive Personal Data

ConRes’s intention is not to seek any sensitive personal data through our web site. Sensitive personal data includes a number of types of data relating to: race or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious or other similar beliefs; trade union membership; physical or mental health; sexual life or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive data of this nature, unless as part of an employment application. If you elect to provide sensitive personal data not requested by ConRes, you expressly consent to ConRes’s use of that data consistent with the mutually beneficial uses reasonably contemplated at the time of your consent or as more specifically described at the point where you choose to disclose your personal data.

Transfer of Personal Data

Personal data collected by ConRes may be transferred to ConRes Affiliates, where it is necessary to meet the purpose for which you have submitted the information. By submitting personal data on ConRes’s web site, you are providing explicit consent to worldwide transfer of such personal data to, and use by ConRes or any ConRes Affiliate, within the scope of the privacy policies stated by ConRes or any ConRes Affiliates.

Cookies

Cookies may be used on some pages of our site. "Cookies" are small text files placed on your hard drive that assist ConRes in providing a more customized web site experience. For example, a cookie can be used to store registration information in an area of the site so that a user does not need to re-enter it on subsequent visits to that area. The use of cookies is intended to make navigation of our web sites easier for you and to facilitate efficient registration procedures. Cookies also enable us to monitor individuals' use of our site for the purpose of continuing to improve its usefulness. If you are concerned about cookies, most browsers permit individuals to decline cookies. In most cases, you may refuse a cookie and still fully navigate our web sites.

Third Parties

ConRes will not sell, rent, or lease your personal data to others. Unless we have specifically informed you, obtained your consent or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide online with ConRes Affiliates and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf, and then only for the uses described in "Use of Data". If there is an instance where ConRes may desire to share such information with third parties, you will be asked to consent to such disclosure at the time you submit the data. However, the sharing of such information will be made only for purposes consistent with the uses described in the Policy.

Legally Compelled Disclosure

Despite ConRes’s commitment to protecting your personal data, there may be circumstances under which ConRes may be deemed to be legally compelled to disclose your personal data. These circumstances may include, among others, situations where disclosure is required by law applicable to ConRes, or necessary to comply with an order of a court or governmental agency, or necessary for matters of safety and security. In such cases, ConRes will make good faith efforts to provide only that information which is the subject of the official order or request.

Third Party Links

There are several places throughout the ConRes web site that may link to other web sites that do not operate under ConRes’s privacy practices. ConRes does not endorse or make any representations about them, or any information, software or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. When you link to other web sites, ConRes’s privacy practices no longer apply and ConRes assumes no responsibility for the information or other practices of a site that is accessible through ConRes. We encourage you to review each site's privacy policy before disclosing any personally identifiable information.

Data Retention

ConRes does not retain all of the data that we receive. Contact information about visitors will be kept as long as the information is valid or until a user with appropriate authorization requests in writing that we delete that information.

Your Choices

ConRes respects your right to make your own choices about how your personal data is handled. Should you choose to subscribe to mailing lists or any registrations, and later decide to unsubscribe we will provide instructions, on the appropriate web site area or in communications to you or you may contact ConRes at webmaster@conres.com. In addition access to certain applications or services may involve particular uses, disclosure or transfer of the personal information being collected during registration for that application or service. If required under the laws of your country of residence, you will be notified of such intended uses, transfer or disclosure and asked to provide your consent. Failure to provide you consent where so requested may mean you will not be provided access to the applications or services for which your personal information can not be lawfully processed.

Accuracy, Access & Further Notification

ConRes strives to ensure the accuracy of your personal data, as provided to ConRes. Depending on the privacy laws in your country of residence, you may have the right to view, update or correct data submitted through the web sites to ConRes, or to receive additional notification of changes in the use of your information. When personal data is retained, ConRes undertakes to make all reasonable efforts to maintain the accuracy of the personal information submitted and verified by you. ConRes does not assume responsibility for verifying the information you submit, or for establishing the ongoing accuracy of the content of personal data. When practically possible, if ConRes is informed that any personal data collected through a web site is no longer accurate, ConRes will make appropriate corrections based on the updated information provided by the authenticated visitor. Queries in this regard should be directed to ConRes at webmaster@conres.com.
