Rowan Companies plc ("Rowan") recognizes that the member states of the European Union ("EU") have implemented omnibus data protection regimes established pursuant to the European Data Protection Directive. Among other things, these laws require adequate protection for the transfer of certain personality identifiable information ("PII") about individuals in Europe ("European Employees") when such PII is transferred to Rowan locations in the United States. Rowan, and all of its direct and indirect subsidiaries, comply with the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding adequate protection of such PII. Therefore, Rowan's US subsidiary, Rowan Companies, Inc. has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles with respect to such PII of European Employees and has communicated with such employees regarding the relevant policies and procedures. Any European Employee who cannot resolve his or her issue directly with Rowan can contact his or her local data protection authority for further assistance.
