Protecting Personal Information

Rogers Corporation is committed to protecting any personal information collected or held, and to complying with all privacy, data protection and associated laws applicable to the countries in which we gather and hold this information.

We collect, use and retain only as much personal information as is necessary for our legitimate business purposes, or to satisfy any legal requirements. Where required by law, we obtain consent to such collection and use, and inform each person, if the issue is not obvious to them, about the purposes for which their personal information will be used.

Personal information must be deleted and updated in accordance with our legal obligations and company document retention policies once its purpose has been fulfilled. We must only share personal information with affiliates and third parties if they have a legitimate need to know it, and only if we are reasonably assured that they will deploy suitable safeguards over the information once it is in their possession, or if required by law.
