Regarding your rewards:

  1. Approved rewards submitted June 1 – December 20, 2023 have been loaded to your new Accuride Select Reward Prepaid Mastercard. This new card came from North Lane Technologies (new banking partner) on or around 2/20/24, so you should have received it.

  2. You received notification of the closure of your old Accuride Select Reward Mastercard on 11/21/23, and an updated email on 3/4/24. You had until December 28, 2023 to spend those rewards, and after that date, EML (old banking partner) should have sent you a check with any remaining balance. Unfortunately there was a delay with the check reimbursements. If you have any questions about your card closure, please call 1-800-755-8713.

Information may be held at our offices and those of the Accuride Group, third party agencies, service providers, representatives and agents as described above (see above: “Who We Share Your Personal Information with”). Some of these third parties may be based outside the European Economic Area. For more information, including on how we safeguard your personal information when this occurs, see below: “Transferring Your Personal Information Out of Country of Origin”.

9. How Long Your Personal Information Will Be Kept.

We will keep your personal information while we are providing products or services to you.

  • To respond to any questions, complaints or claims made by you or on your behalf;
  • To show that we treated you fairly; or

  • With offices of Accuride Group members outside the country of origin;
  • With your and our service providers located outside the country of origin;
  • If you are based outside the country of origin; or
  • Where there is an international dimension to the services we are providing to you. These transfers are subject to special rules under European, UK, Russian, and Turkish data protection law. 

Countries to which such information may be transferred do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom, EEA, Russia, and Turkey. We will, however, ensure the transfer complies with data protection law and all personal information will be secure. Our standard practice is to use standard data protection contract clauses that have been approved by the European Commission, as well as to implement adequate additional technical measures to protect your data. To obtain a copy of those clauses, or if you would like further information, please contact our Data Protection Officer (see “How To Contact Us” below).

Where it is not possible to achieve adequate protection of your data by means of suitable contractual, organizational and technical measures, we base the data transfer on exceptions of Art. 49 GDPR, in particular your explicit consent or the necessity of the transfer for the performance of the contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

If a transfer to a non-EEA member state is provided for and no adequacy decision by the European Commission or suitable safeguards are in place, it is possible and there is a risk that authorities in the respective third country (e.g. intelligence services) may gain access to the transferred data in order to collect and analyze it, and that the enforceability of your data subject rights cannot be guaranteed. When obtaining your consent via the cookie banner, you will also be informed of this.

Protection Against Discrimination - You have the right to not be discriminated against by us because you exercised any of your rights under the CCPA. This means we cannot, among other things:

  • Deny goods or services to you;

  • Provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you; or
  • Suggest that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

Please note that we may charge a different price or rate or provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to our business by your personal information. 

13. Keeping Your Personal Information Secure.

We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost or used or accessed in an unauthorized way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to access it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
