(a)Collection and Usage. The Company collects, processes and uses personal employee data, including name, home address, email address and telephone number, date of birth, social insurance number, passport number or other identification number, salary, citizenship, job title, any shares of Class C Stock or directorships held in the Company, and details of all equity awards granted, canceled, vested or outstanding in the Grantee's favor, which the Company receives from the Grantee or the Employer (“Data”).

In the future, the Company may select a different service provider and share my Data with another company that serves in a similar manner. The Company’s service provider will open an account for the Grantee to receive and trade shares of Class C Stock.

(d)Voluntariness and Consequences of Consent, Denial or Withdrawal. The Grantee’s participation in the Plan and the Grantee’s grant of consent hereunder is purely voluntary.

If the Grantee does not consent, or if the Grantee later withdraws his or her consent, the Grantee may be unable to participate in the Plan. This would not affect the Grantee’s existing employment or salary; instead, the Grantee merely may forfeit the opportunities associated with participation in the Plan.

(f)Data Subject Rights.

To receive clarification regarding these rights or to exercise these rights, the Grantee understands that the Grantee can contact Human Resources at Totalrewards@underarmour.com. The Company will process the Grantee’s requests related to these rights as the law allows, which means in some cases there may be legal or other official reasons that Company may not be able to address the specific request related to the Grantee’s rights to protect the Grantee’s privacy. The Company will take steps to verify the Grantee identity before fulfilling any such request.
If the Grantee agrees with the data processing practices as described in this notice, he or she should declare his or her consent by clicking “Accept” on the Charles Schwab award acceptance page.

15.Electronic Delivery. The Company may choose to deliver certain statutory materials relating to the Plan in electronic form.
