Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. is pleased to announce that our innovative SENSING CORE Tire Sensing Technology received the prestigious "Tire Technology of the Year Award" at this year's "Tire Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence." The awards ceremony was held as part of "Tire Technology Expo 2019," which took place this past March 5th through 7th in Hanover, Germany.This is the third time that Sumitomo Rubber Industries has received this award for our outstanding technologies, having won for our "4th Generation Run-Flat Tire Technology" in 2010 and for our "ADVANCED 4D NANO DESIGN New Materials Development Technology" in 2017. At the awards ceremony held on March 6th, Mr. Hiroaki Kawasaki, the Manager of our DWS Business Team (part of our company's Automotive System Division), gave a speech in which he declared, "Tires are one of the core components that determine the basic functions of a vehicle: vehicles cannot drive without tires. In the future mobility society in which autonomous driving and car sharing will become popular, the importance of such tires will grow ever greater.SENSING CORE is a new tire technology which changes the tire itself into a sensor. It is able to detect the tire traction level, tire pressure loss through our software algorithms without any additional hardware like sensors. I believe that SENSING CORE is one of the key technologies that will contribute to the realization of autonomous driving and a safer mobile society."Held in Europe each year since its inception in 2001, the "Tire Technology Expo" is a trade exhibition and technical conference concerning tire manufacturing and the overall tire industry. Each year, the expo features various research reports and presentations from tire manufacturers as well as raw material suppliers and public research institutions, culminating in an awards ceremony that recognizes outstanding technical achievement in five separate categories*."SENSING CORE" is a technology that analyzes wheel speed signals (generated by tire rotation) to detect information on road conditions (such as slipperiness), tire load and so forth. Through further development, future iterations of this technology will be able to aggregate this tire data with various cloud-based information collected at the municipal and even societal level, which will then allow vehicles to utilize comprehensive data to better sense and preempt potential hazards arising out of both road and tire conditions. Sumitomo Rubber Industries recently launched our "SMART TYRE CONCEPT" as a Tire Technology Development Concept that aims to achieve "Ever Greater Safety Performance" and "Ever Greater Environmental Performance." "SENSING CORE" is one of the core technologies that make up the heart of "SMART TYRE CONCEPT."We at Sumitomo Rubber Industries are pleased to accept this award as a further sign of the widespread recognition that we have received for both our innovative efforts to respond to sweeping changes in the automotive industry in ways that transcend tire manufacturing as well as the advanced technologies that these efforts have brought about. We will continue working to develop new technologies that further contribute to the development of a safer, more environmentally friendly mobility society for the future.* 5 Award Categories: Environmental Achievement of the Year, Tire Technology of the Year, Tire Industry Supplier of the Year, Tire Manufacturing Innovation of the Year, Tire Manufacturer of the Year.

On www.dunlop-mea.com website, and our mobile websites (“the Platforms”) we and third parties can store and access cookies, IP addresses and use other tracking technology methods to enable Platform functionality, collect aggregated data about website usage, improve your online experience and manage and tailor our advertising and communications with you. There are means of disabling cookies as set out below if you choose to do so, however this may affect your use of our Platforms. See below for more information about what cookies are, the tracking technology we use, and how we use them. You can also update and change your cookie preferences here.
We may obtain information about you in a variety of ways, including through your use of our website(s) & when you call, email or otherwise communicate with us (including through social media), or when you participate in events or other promotions organized by us or in collaboration with any third party.
The following are examples of the types of information we may collect directly from you in order to provide you with information related to our products or any technical support that you may need:
Syncing Cookies and Identifiers: We may work with our partners (for instance, third party ad platforms) to synchronize unique, anonymous identifiers (such as those associated with cookies) in order to match our partners' uniquely coded user identifiers to our own. We may do this, for instance, to enhance data points about a particular unique browser or device, and thus enable us or others to send ads that are more relevant, match Users to their likely product interests, or better synchronize, cap, or optimize advertising.
Locally Stored Objects: Our network Services may employ locally stored objects ("LSOs") and other client side storage tracking technologies in certain situations where they help to provide a better user experience, such as to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies, or in order to target or help our partners target ads, analyze ad performance, or perform user, website or market analytics. For LSOs utilized by Adobe Flash you can access flash management tools from Adobe's website. In addition, some, but not all browsers, provide the ability to remove LSOs, sometimes within cookie and privacy settings.
We may work with certain third-party companies that use techniques other than HTTP cookies to recognize your computer or device and/or to collect and record information about your web surfing activity, including those integrated with our Services. Please keep in mind that your web browser may not permit you to block the use of these techniques, and those browser settings that block conventional cookies may have no effect on such techniques. To learn more about Interest-Based Advertising or to opt- out of this type of advertising by those third parties that are members of DAA's opt-out program, please go to http://www.aboutads.info.
Web Beacons: We and our partners may also use "web beacons" or clear GIFs, or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on a Service or in an email, to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing a Service or email. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that Service. Web beacons may also be used to provide information on the effectiveness of our email campaigns (e.g., open rates, clicks, forwards, etc.).
Mobile Device Identifiers and SDKs: We also sometimes use, or partner with publishers, publisher-facing, or app developer platforms that use mobile Software Development Kits ("SDKs"), or use an SDK with a mobile app that we offer, to collect Information, such as mobile identifiers (e.g., IDFAs and Android Advertising IDs), and Information connected to how mobile devices interact with our Services and those using our Services. A mobile SDK is the mobile app version of a web beacon (see "Web Beacons" above). The SDK is a bit of computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected, and related services or analytics to be performed. We may use this technology to deliver or help our Partners deliver certain advertising through mobile applications and browsers based on information associated with your mobile device. If you'd like to opt-out from having ads tailored to you in this way on your mobile device, please follow the instructions in the "Your Ad Choices" section below.

This Automated Information is generally used for the following purposes:
We use clear image files, pixel tags and other similar technology embedded within emails we send to you and on our Platforms. These files are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear images are embedded invisibly on web pages or in emails. We may use clear images (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with the Platforms to, among other things, track the activities of Platform visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of the Platforms. We and our third party service providers also use clear images in HTML e‑mails to our customers, to help us track e‑mail response rates, identify when our e‑mails are viewed, and track whether our e‑mails are forwarded.
We use aggregated statistics provided by third party digital platforms about your interaction with us across multiple devices, such as your laptop and mobile, based on your log‑ins into different services offered by these third parties. These statistics help us understand your journey across different devices and personalize the look and feel of our Platforms. These third party digital platforms also allow us to personalize our advertisements to you on your various devices on the basis of your behavior on one or more of your devices where you have logged into the relevant third parties’ services.
We use other aggregated data provided by third party digital platforms including demographic information (such as age and gender) and your interests (such as travel and shopping) derived from your other website usage, together with our own aggregated data about your interactions with us on our Platforms to understand user behavior to improve our Platforms, products and services. We do not disaggregate this data to identify your specific demographic or interest information.
This includes information provided by you directly to us or collected by your use of our Platforms. We may obtain information about you (including personal information) from our business partners, such as distributors, and other third parties.
You may choose not to provide some or all of your personal information to us but doing so may prevent us from providing our Services to you or limit our ability to provide you with the level of service that you would otherwise expect from us.
We share your information within our company and our distributors and partners for legitimate business purposes, including:
We may share information about you with the following categories of third-party providers for a variety of business purposes:
In addition, we may disclose and/or share your information to comply with legal or regulatory requirements (including to comply with a court order, judicial subpoena or other subpoena or warrant), industry standards, judicial process, and our company policies, as well as to protect against, identify, investigate, prevent and respond to fraud, illegal activity (such as identifying and responding to incidents of hacking or misuse of our websites and mobile applications), adverse event reporting, and claims and other liabilities.
We also reserve the right to disclose your information (i) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability, (ii) to protect our rights or property or the legal and property rights of others and (iii) investigate and defend third party claims or allegations against us.
Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Since there is no industry standard concerning what websites should do when they receive such signals, our websites do not currently process or respond to "do-not-track" (DNT) settings in your web browser. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.
Certain third parties, such as ad networks, web analytics companies and social media and networking platforms, collect information about your online activities over time and across websites. These third parties may not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser and we do not obligate these parties to honor DNT settings. Information about how to opt out from your data being used by third parties can be found under clause "Information collected by automated means"
If you choose to communicate with us or another user through social features available on our websites or mobile applications or through our social media pages, or other similar communication or messaging features or services, such information may be made publicly available. For security purposes, please do not include any password, social security number, card or other sensitive information via these features. We have the right, but not the obligation to monitor messages and communications between and among users for security and training purposes. We may, but are not obligated to, remove any content we deem inappropriate.
If you wish to change or delete personal information we hold about you, you may contact us at [email protected] or by filling the “Contact Us” form on our website. If we change or delete your personal information or if you decline to actively share certain personal information with us, we may not be able to provide you with our Services. Keep in mind, we may reject request, at our sole discretion, for certain reasons, including if the request is unlawful or if it infringes on the rights and freedoms of another person. For example, we may not be able to accommodate certain requests to object to the processing of personal information, notably where such requests would not allow us to provide our service to you anymore.
For your protection, we may require proof of identity and verification before we can answer the above requests.
In this section, we have set out the legal grounds on which we rely to process personal information.
In some cases, we have a legitimate interest to process the personal information that we collect, such as to develop, administer and support our products and services; to operate, evaluate and improve our business; to facilitate and manage engagement programs; to promote research; to support our recruitment activities; or to facilitate a Corporate Transaction (including a sale of assets or merger or acquisition).
In other cases, we process personal information to fulfill our contracts with business partners, such as third parties that distribute our products.
It may also be necessary for us to process personal information to establish, exercise or defend against fraud, illegal activity, and claims and other liabilities, including by enforcing the terms and conditions that govern the services we provide.
Our processing of certain information may be necessary to comply with our legal obligations, and for reasons of public interest, such as with respect to adverse event and product safety reporting.
We may also process personal information as specifically permitted by applicable legal requirements.
If we rely on consent for the processing of your personal information, we will seek such consent at the time we collect your personal information.
International data transfers
Access, Edit and Delete Your Information.
Mobile platforms have permission systems for specific types of device data and notifications, such as camera and microphone as well as push notifications. Where applicable, you can change your settings on your device to either consent or oppose the collection of the corresponding information or the display of the corresponding notifications. Of course, if you do that, certain services may lose full functionality.
If you choose to opt-in, some of our apps may collect your device's precise real-time location, and in such cases, you may be able to opt out from further allowing us to have access to such location data by managing your location preferences in the app and/or on your device.
You may choose whether to receive some interest-based advertising by submitting opt-outs. Some of the advertisers and Service Providers that perform advertising-related services for us and third parties may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance's ("DAA") Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding interest-based advertising, including use of cross-device data for serving ads, visit http://www.aboutads.info for information on the DAA's opt-out program specifically for mobile apps (including use of precise location for third party ads). Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"). To learn more about the NAI and your opt-out options for their members, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of interest-based advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected members no longer deliver certain interest-based advertising to you but that does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit these opt-out webpages, or you subsequently erase your cookies, using a different device or web browser or use a non-browser-based method of access (e.g., mobile app), your NAI / DAA browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective.

Despite these measures, however, we cannot and do not guarantee that information will be absolutely safe from interception or intrusion during transmission or while stored on our system, or otherwise, and you provide information to us at your own risk.
If you correspond with us by email, text message or using web forms like a "contact us" feature available on our platforms, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure from access by unauthorized parties. We have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.
If we believe that the security of your personal information in our care may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you but are not obliged to do so. If we have your email address, we may notify you by email to the most recent email address you have provided us in your account profile but are not obliged to do so.
