I hereby explicitly and unambiguously consent to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of my personal data as described in this document by and among, as applicable, my Employer and The Procter & Gamble Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates (“P&G”) for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing my participation in the Plan.
I understand that P&G and my Employer hold certain personal information about me, including, but not limited to, my name, home address and telephone number, date of birth, social insurance number or other identification number, salary, nationality, job title, any shares of stock or directorships held in P&G, details of all Awards or any other entitlement to shares of stock awarded, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in my favor, for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan (“Data”). I understand that Data may be transferred to any third parties assisting in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan, that these recipients may be located in my country or elsewhere (including countries outside the European Economic Area), and that the recipient’s country may have different data privacy laws and protections than my country. I understand that I may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting my local human resources representative. I authorize the recipients to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer the Data, in electronic or other form, for the purposes of implementing, administering and managing my participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker or other third party with whom I may elect to deposit any shares of stock acquired upon exercise or settlement of the Award.

Responsibility for Taxes
Regardless of any action P&G or my Employer takes with respect to any or all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, payment on account or other tax-related withholding (“Tax-Related Items”), I acknowledge that the ultimate liability for all Tax-Related Items is and remains my responsibility and that P&G and/or my Employer (1) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of this Award, including the issuance, vesting or exercise, settlement, the subsequent sale of shares acquired, the receipt of any dividends or dividend equivalents or the potential impact of current or future tax legislation in any jurisdiction; and (2) do not commit to structure the terms of the Award or any aspect of the Award to reduce or eliminate my liability for Tax-Related Items.
Prior to exercise or settlement of an Award, I shall pay or make adequate arrangements satisfactory to P&G and/or my Employer to satisfy all withholding and payment on account obligations of P&G and/or my employer. In this regard, I authorize P&G and/or my Employer to withhold all applicable Tax-Related Items from my wages or other cash
compensation paid to me by P&G and/or my Employer or from proceeds of the sale of the shares. Alternatively, or in addition, if permissible under local law, P&G may (1) sell or arrange for the sale of shares that I acquire to meet the withholding obligation for Tax-Related Items, and/or (2) withhold in shares, provided that P&G only withholds the amount of shares necessary to satisfy the minimum withholding amount. Finally, I shall pay to P&G or my Employer any amount of Tax-Related Items that P&G or my Employer may be required to withhold as a result of my participation in the Plan or my purchase of shares that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. P&G may refuse to honor the exercise and refuse to deliver the shares if I fail to comply with my obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items as described in this section.
