Exhibit 1: Data Privacy Notice & Consent


Prior to transmitting any sensitive personal information to 3M, which must be no later than the start of an Assignment at 3M, Seller will have such Contingent (Temporary) Worker execute the Data Privacy Notice and Consent regarding sensitive personal information transfer and storage in the form attached here, which Seller will scan and upload into the Non-3M Workforce System. Seller will also retain and make available to 3M upon request for the duration of such Contingent Worker’s 3M Assignment plus seven (7) years. Sensitive personal information includes such information as middle name, birth date, birth month.

Seller must be able to positively answer the following Pre-Assignment Requirement checklist question: ‘Has the individual's signed and dated Data Privacy Notice and Consent been uploaded onto the system?’ Seller will retain the original document and make available to 3M upon request.

 

Seller Personnel Agreement

Contingent workers are required to protect 3M's confidential and proprietary information and must be subject to an agreement containing confidentiality provisions. The Seller Personnel Agreement is preferred for most contingent workers who are assigned through a Supplier. Seller must be able to positively answer the following Pre-Assignment Requirement checklist question: ‘Do you hold the individual's original signed and dated Seller Personnel Agreement?’
Seller will retain the original document and make available to 3M upon request.

Given the diversity of agreements that already exist between suppliers, contingent workers, and 3M, it may be possible that the worker's confidentiality agreement obligation is addressed through another agreement already in place with 3M that includes confidentiality obligations. These agreements may include: a supplier agreement, a confidential disclosure agreement, or equivalent. Suppliers assigning contingent workers, and independent workers, are responsible to ensure that an appropriate agreement is in place. Contact 3M Sourcing Operations for more information.
