Leggett & Platt, Incorporated Privacy Statement Effective Date: April 13, 2017

Leggett & Platt, Incorporated ("Leggett") respects your privacy and is committed to safeguarding and protecting your privacy in connection with the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union ("EU"), the European Economic Area ("EEA"), and Switzerland. This Privacy Statement contains important information regarding Leggett’s privacy practices and the choices it offers individuals with respect to their personal information. If you choose to provide us with personal information, you are telling us that you have read, fully understand, and accept the privacy practices summarized in this Privacy Statement and consent to all actions that are consistent with and described in this Privacy Statement. We encourage you to read this Privacy Statement in its entirety to understand Leggett’s privacy practices before submitting any personal information to Leggett. Leggett is subject to the investigatory and enforcement authority of the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC").

Scope

This Privacy Statement applies to our processing of "Personal Information," by which we mean personal information or data that we receive and record in the United States from the EU, the EEA, and Switzerland that identifies, or can be used by us or on our behalf to identify, an individual. This may take the form of contact information, such as your name, home or other physical address, email address, telephone number, fax number, organization name, and/or job title. Personal Information does not include "Usage Data," which we define as encoded information, aggregate information, anonymized information, or information that is publicly available and not combined with non-public personal information.

EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks

Our normal business operations may require the processing of Personal Information received from the EU, the EEA, and Switzerland. We participate in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Information transferred from the EU, the EEA, and Switzerland to the United States. We have certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles of Notice; Choice; Accountability for Onward Transfer; Security; Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation; Access; and Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability (the "Privacy Shield Principles"). If there is a conflict between the privacy practices covered in this Privacy Statement and the Privacy Shield Principles with respect to Personal Information received from the EU, the EEA, and Switzerland, the Privacy Shield Principles shall prevail. To learn more about the Privacy Shield, the Privacy Shield Principles, the requirements for participating companies, such as Leggett, and to view Leggett’s certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.

Information Collection

We may collect Personal Information from you, including:

Personal Information You Voluntarily Provide. If you voluntarily provide us with Personal Information, we may collect this Personal Information. You may voluntarily provide Personal Information to us in a variety of ways, including by communicating with us orally and via email, subscribing to receive newsletters, registering and attending trade shows, engaging in interactive and community features, requesting event information, participating in surveys and questionnaires, and through other useful content that you have requested. This may take the form of contact information, such as your name, home or other physical address, email address, telephone number, fax number, organization name, and/or job title.

Personal Information We May Automatically Collect. We may use various technologies to collect Personal Information about you when you visit and use our website, http://leggett.com ("Site"), and when we send promotional email communications, including newsletters, for which you have registered, to you. These technologies may include:

  • Cookies. Like many websites our Site may use "cookies." A cookie is a small information file that some websites transfer to a user’s hard drive. We may use cookies to improve a user’s experience on our Site, for example, to personalize features of the Site for you, to analyze the traffic on the Site, to better understand visitor and customer usage of our Site, and to maintain and make improvements based on the information we collect. We may also use cookies in promotional email communications we send to you to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors and customers use our Site, services, and products. The use of cookies has become standard practice for websites and in promotional email communications, but whether you choose to accept or decline these cookies is entirely up to you. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You may set your browser to reject cookies and to let you know when a cookie is being placed on your computer. If you refuse cookies, you may not be able to use some of the functionality of our Site or our promotional email communications. Other third parties associated with the Site may also use cookies in connection with the services and websites to which the Site links. We do not control these third-party cookies.
  • Internet Protocol Addresses. Our Site may use Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. As part of the protocol of the Internet, web servers can identify your computer by its IP address. In addition, web servers may be able to identify the type of browser and/or type of computer you are using. We log IP addresses and related information for the purposes of internal security, trend analysis, and system administration, to assess the traffic on the Site, and to maintain and make improvements to the Site. We do not link IP addresses to your Personal Information, but we can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with this Privacy Statement, to protect the Site, customers, or other visitors, or to comply with applicable laws.
  • Web Beacons. Web beacons are small files that communicate with third parties and are embedded in web pages, ads, or in promotional communications. We may use web beacons to deliver or communicate with cookies, to count users who have visited a web page, to understand usage patterns of our customers and visitors. We also may use web beacons to learn if emails have been opened, acted on, or forwarded. We also may include web beacons in newsletters and other promotional email communications that we send to subscribers in order to count how many newsletters or other promotional communications have been opened or read. You can disable the ability of web beacons to store cookie information by declining cookies. Our web beacons do not collect, gather, monitor, or share any Personal Information about customers or visitors to our Sites. They are merely designed to compile Usage Data, as defined above.
  • Other Technologies. Examples of other technologies we may use to provide better service to you when visiting the Site include:
    • Web Session Variables. Information that is passed from one web URL to another as you browse.
    • Browser plug-ins/add-ons. Additional web components that may need to be installed to enable certain web features on the Site. You have the option not to install these components.

Our Site may contain links to websites operated by others whose privacy practices are different from Leggett’s. This Privacy Statement does not apply to any information collected from you through such links or that you may provide on the websites you reach by utilizing those links. Leggett is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of websites linked to the Site or any other Leggett-sponsored websites that are not designed and developed by Leggett. You are encouraged to use common sense when using our Site and review the privacy practices of each website you elect to visit before submitting your Personal Information.

Please be advised that if you disclose Personal Information through discussion forums, message boards, chat rooms, or blogs whose access is provided by Leggett, this information may be collected and used by others. We do not monitor these public spaces and take no responsibility for the security or confidentiality of any information posted thereon.

Information Use

We may use Personal Information to:

  • Operate and better understand usage of the Site;
  • Deliver services, products, and information to you;
  • Analyze and improve performance of the Site, our services, products, and information;
  • Learn what new services, products, or information interest you;
  • Tailor our Site, services, products, and information to meet your needs;
  • Respond to your requests and preferences;
  • Conduct research about your opinion of Leggett, the Site, and our services, products, and information;
  • Market and advertise our services, products, and information to you and determine the effectiveness of the same;
  • Perform customer service;
  • Enhance internal security and system administration;
  • Report on and analyze industry trends; and
  • Otherwise manage our normal business operations.

While we do not give, sell, rent, or lease any Personal Information collected to third parties, Leggett may disclose information about you to its agents, such as its vendors and service providers, acting on behalf of Leggett under instructions for the limited and specific purpose of assisting Leggett with its normal business operations. In no event will that limited and specific purpose be inconsistent with this Privacy Statement. In all cases, these agents may only use this information in connection with providing services to Leggett.

Sometimes a law, court order, or other judicial or administrative process requires us to provide Personal Information to a government authority or party to a private lawsuit. While Leggett will only provide such information that we in good faith believe is required to comply with the law, order, or other legal process, we may disclose certain Personal Information if:

  • Leggett is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information;
  • We are required to bring, or defend against, litigation or any regulatory proceeding between, or relating to, you and us; and
  • We have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other customers, visitors, or users of the Site, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.

Additionally, because Leggett is a global company, we may share your information with other subsidiaries and business units in other parts of the world. These subsidiaries and business units will maintain the privacy of your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

Please note that we also may be required to disclose an individual’s Personal Information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security and/or law enforcement requests.

Choice

When you provide Personal Information to us, you consent to our using that Personal Information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Statement. You have choices about whether we use your Personal Information to communicate with you and, if we do communicate with you, what form that communication takes. We will use your Personal Information as described in the "Information Use" section of this Privacy Statement. If you wish for us to stop using your Personal Information for any of the uses described above, simply write to us at the address provided in our Contact Information or contact our Privacy Manager at privacy@leggett.com and provide us with the details of your request. We will respond in a timely manner to your request. Additionally, if you wish to discontinue any further promotional email communications, please visit us at https://privacy.leggett.com and initiate your request. We will respond in a timely manner to your request. You can also stop receiving promotional email messages from us by following the directions provided in the bottom of any such promotional email communication you receive. Further, we will not disclose your Personal Information to any third party for uses other than those described in this Privacy Statement without first providing you with notice and a clear choice to "opt-out" of such disclosure.

We do not seek, nor do we knowingly process, so-called "sensitive" Personal Information. This category of Personal Information is more sensitive in nature and relates to, for example, an individual’s race, sexual orientation, criminal allegations or offenses, trade union memberships, their mental or physical health, or their biometric information. We have no intention of processing or disclosing such Personal Information, but if for any reason Leggett needs to disclose "sensitive" Personal Information to any third party, it will first provide you with notice and seek your affirmative express ("opt-in") consent prior to such disclosure, except in a very limited set of exceptional circumstances provided for under the law.

Accountability for Onward Transfer

We do not share your Personal Information with any third party for the purpose of marketing or sending you advertisements for services, products, or information not affiliated with Leggett. Prior to making any disclosures to agents – such as vendors and service providers acting on behalf of Leggett under instructions for the limited and specific purpose of assisting Leggett with its normal business operations – we will attempt to ascertain that such agents are providing at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles and will take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that any third-party agent is processing Personal Information in a manner consistent with our obligations under the EU-U.S. and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Principles. We will require any third-party agents to notify the organization if that agent determines it is unable to provide the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles. To the extent that we are made aware of the unauthorized processing of your Personal Information, we will take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate the unauthorized processing. Leggett remains potentially liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages to assist with processing Personal Information on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles.

Security

We are concerned with the security of your Personal Information and consider the protection of Personal Information we receive from you as critical to our mission of providing customers with innovative solutions and high quality products and eliminating non-value added costs from our products and processes. We deploy a combination of reasonable and appropriate physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect against the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, tampering, alteration, and unauthorized destruction of any Personal Information. We follow generally accepted security standards in our operations to protect the security of your Personal Information, both internally and from outsiders, and to ensure the integrity of the Personal Information we process, taking into account the relative risks involved and the nature of the Personal Information in question. Unfortunately, with any transmission over the Internet, there is always some element of risk involved in submitting Personal Information. If you have any questions about the security of your Personal Information, you can contact our Privacy Manager by visiting us at https://privacy.leggett.com. We will respond in a timely manner to your request.

Integrity, Purpose Limitation, and Access

We will not process Personal Information in a way that is incompatible with the purposes detailed in this Privacy Statement, and when we receive a specific request from you, we will take all reasonable steps necessary to ensure that your Personal Information is reliable, accurate, complete, current, and relevant to its intended use. We acknowledge EU, EEA and Swiss individuals have the right to access their Personal Information. Upon request, Leggett will grant such individuals access to the Personal Information that it holds about them. In addition, if you believe that the Personal Information you have voluntarily provided to us is, or has become, unreliable, inaccurate, incomplete, untimely, or irrelevant, you may review, revise, correct, or update any of the Personal Information we may have about you, except where the burden or expense of providing access to such review, revision, correction, or update would be disproportionate to the risk to your privacy, where the rights of persons other than you would be violated, where the organization’s confidential commercial information would be compromised, where it would interfere with the execution or enforcement of the law or with a private cause of action, or where it would breach a legal or other professional privilege or obligation. If you have any questions about access to your Personal Information, you can contact our Privacy Manager by visiting us at https://privacy.leggett.com. Once there, you may initiate a request to access, modify, or delete your Personal Information. We will respond in a timely manner to your request.

Retention

We will retain your Personal Information for as long as needed to meet the uses described in the "Information Use" section of this Privacy Statement. In addition, even if you opt-out, we will retain your Personal Information for internal use only, such as for statistical analytics and legal compliance.
