Privacy Policy

By accessing this website (the “Site”), you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as explained in this privacy policy. This privacy policy is designed to explain APA’s policies and procedures with respect to collection, use and disclosure by APA of personal information in connection with the Site. This privacy policy has a limited scope and applies only to the Site.

It is APA’s general policy to comply with the privacy legislation within each jurisdiction in which we operate. Privacy legislation or an individual’s right to privacy may differ from one jurisdiction to another. The rights and obligations described in this privacy policy may not apply to all individuals or in all jurisdictions. For information specific to residents of the United Kingdom or the European Union, please see the Information for UK/EU Residents section below.

APA collects and maintains different types of personal information in connection with the Site, including:

  • contact and identification information, such as name, address, telephone number and email address;
  • business relationship information, including information related to agreements, feedback and information requested or provided by or from you;
  • information related to your employment or application for employment, including your work and educational history;
  • information related to our media, investor and public relations activities;
  • information related to leases of mineral or surface rights; and
  • information related to exploration, development and production activities, permits and licenses, emergency planning and environmental stewardship.

In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or providing us with any personal information. There are portions of the Site where we may ask to collect personal information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with information requested by you or carry out a transaction requested by you. You are not required to provide this personal information to us. However, if you choose not to, we may not be able to complete your requested transaction or provide you with the requested information.

We collect certain non-personal information about visitors to the Site, including the pages viewed, the links clicked, and other actions taken within the Site. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your internet protocol (IP) address, your browser type and capabilities and language, your operating system, the date and time you access the website, and the referring website from which you linked to our Site. We also may utilize special electronic images or other objects embedded within the Site — sometimes referred to as web beacons or tracking pixels — to collect information that helps determine and analyze how you and other visitors use the Site. If you have provided us with personal information through other means, we may connect your personal information with other information collected through our Site and use the combined information to help determine your potential interests in certain products, services or information and for other purposes described in this privacy policy.

Additionally, information related to your interactions with the Site may be collected and stored by us in small data files — commonly referred to as cookies — that are placed onto your device by our web servers. We may use temporary session cookies, which are terminated when you close your browser session, to store certain personal information you provide for purposes of administering that session and facilitating transactions requested by you during that session. We also may use persistent cookies, which remain saved on your device after your browser session is closed, to store non-personal information related to your interactions with the Site. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being placed on your computer. Each browser is different, but generally users can remove cookies by following directions provided in the browser’s “help” file. Please note that, if you reject cookies or disable cookies in your browser, some features of the Site may not work.

We may also obtain information about you that is transferred from or provided by third parties, such as those providing website analytics services or from other parties or services that link to or provide information for the Site.

APA collects personal information to enable us to manage and develop our business and operations, including:

  • to establish, maintain and manage relations with you so that we may provide you with, or receive from you, the information, products and services that have been requested;
  • to improve our Site;
  • to improve our security measures;
  • to enable us to undertake our environmental, health and safety activities, including incident planning, response and investigation;
  • any other reasonable purpose to which you consent.

We use your personal information for the purposes described in this privacy policy and for any additional purposes for which we have obtained your consent to the use or disclosure of your personal information. Your consent may be implied, deemed (using an opt-out mechanism) or express. Express consent can be given orally, electronically or in writing. Implied consent is consent that can reasonably be inferred from your action or inaction.

We may use your personal information without your knowledge or consent where we are permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements to do so.

We share your personal information with our employees, contractors, consultants and other parties who require such information to assist us with establishing, maintaining and managing our business relationship with you, including: third parties that provide services to us or on our behalf; third parties that collaborate with APA in the provision of services to you; and, third parties whose services we use to conduct our business.

Where we have obtained or granted an interest (such as through a partnership, joint venture or other commercial structure) in one or a series of wells, pipelines or other operations, APA may exchange personal information with third parties such as other resource companies, land agents, land brokers, and other third parties in the conduct of that operation.

APA’s affiliated companies sometimes provide management, administrative and other services to other APA affiliates. Personal information may be collected, used, retained or disclosed by and between APA’s affiliates in the performance of such services. In addition, subsidiaries of APA Corporation may disclose personal information to APA Corporation as part of regular reporting activities.

In addition, personal information may be disclosed or transferred to another party in the event of a change in ownership of, or the grant of a security interest in, all or a part of APA or its affiliates through, for example, an asset or share sale, or some other form of business combination, merger, divestiture or joint venture, provided that such party is bound by appropriate agreements or obligations and required to use or disclose your personal information in a manner consistent with the use and disclosure provisions of this privacy policy, unless you consent otherwise. APA or its affiliates may provide or continue to provide management, administrative and other services to the other party as part of a change in ownership, whether for a fixed period of time or indefinitely. In such case, your personal information would be used or disclosed in a manner consistent with the agreement between APA and the other party.

Further, personal information may be disclosed:

  • as permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, in which case, we will endeavor to not disclose more personal information than is required under the circumstances;
  • to comply with valid legal processes such as search warrants, subpoenas or court orders;
  • to protect the rights and property of APA;
  • during emergency situations or where necessary to protect the health or safety of a person or group of persons or to protect the environment;
  • where the personal information is public; or
  • with your consent.

APA endeavors to maintain adequate physical, procedural and technical security with respect to its offices and information storage facilities so as to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of personal information.

As part of those precautions, APA endeavors to restrict access to personal information to those employees and others (i.e. individuals or organizations providing services to APA) that it determines need to know that information in order that APA may conduct its activities.

APA retains the personal information collected through the Site or otherwise in its possession for so long as it is needed for the purposes for which it was obtained or so long as allowed for any other lawful retention purpose, subject, in each case, to applicable law regarding data retention periods for personal information.


APA endeavors to ensure that any personal information in its possession is as accurate, current and complete as necessary for the purposes for which APA uses that information. If you want to review, verify or correct your personal information, please contact us using the contact information set out below. Please note that any such communication must be in writing.

When requesting access to your personal information, please note that we may request specific information from you to enable us to confirm your identity and right to access, as well as to search for and provide you with the personal information that we hold about you. We may charge you a fee to access your personal information; however, we will advise you of any fee in advance. If you require assistance in preparing your request, please contact us using the contact information set out below.

Your right to access the personal information that we hold about you is not absolute. For example, there are instances where your personal information may have been destroyed, erased or made anonymous. In addition, there are instances where applicable law or regulatory requirements allow or require us to refuse to provide some or all of the personal information that we hold about you. In the event that we cannot provide you with access to your personal information, we will endeavor to inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.

To some extent, APA relies on individuals to update their own personal information. For example, if an individual has had a change of address or telephone number, the individual should complete the appropriate documentation and forward to the appropriate contact within APA requesting that the individual’s file be updated. Unless an individual advises APA of these important changes, APA may have no way of knowing about them.

APA reserves the right not to change any personal information and instead append any alternative information the individual concerned believes is appropriate. For example, APA may not change certain information contained in a lease administration file, but will attach a sheet to that file indicating the amendment requested by the individual.

If you choose to unsubscribe from our mailing lists, we will hold your contact details on file marked so that we do not contact you again. This is so that we do not contact you if your details are subsequently provided to us by a third party.

This privacy policy does not apply to any website other than our Site. Our Site contains links to other websites that APA does not own or control and we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of those websites. Similarly, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of any website that links to our Site. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of each and every third party website and to be aware when you leave our Site.

Please be aware that, by visiting our Site, you acknowledge that our servers are currently located in the United States and that the various communications necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries.

By visiting our Site and communicating electronically with us, you consent to the processing and transfer of your personal information as set out in this privacy policy.

Personal information collected on our Site may be stored and processed in the United States of America or any other country in which we maintain facilities. Personal information collected on our Site may be transferred among APA’s various divisions and affiliated companies around the world, which may involve transfers from the UK or countries within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to countries outside the UK and EEA. Such transfers inside or outside the UK or EEA may be subject to applicable governmental decisions or inter-governmental agreements, certification programs, or treaties regarding whether the transfer provides an adequate level of data protection from the perspective of the applicable data protection law. Where such adequate level of data protection has not been determined pursuant to the foregoing, we will transfer the data using appropriate safeguards, including through the use of standard contractual clauses adopted by the EU. Personal information collected on our Site may be stored and processed by third-party service providers engaged by APA, which may store or process the information in the United States of America or any other country in which such parties maintain facilities or operations. By choosing to access our Site, you consent to any such transfer, storage or processing of personal data outside of your country.

This privacy policy does not create or confer upon any individual any rights, or impose upon APA any rights or obligations outside of, or in addition to, any rights or obligations imposed by the privacy laws of such individual’s jurisdiction, as applicable. Should there be, in a specific case, any inconsistency between this privacy policy and the applicable privacy laws of such individual’s jurisdiction, this privacy policy shall be interpreted, in respect of that case, to give effect to, and comply with, such privacy laws; provided, however, APA operates only within certain countries, states, territories, or jurisdictions, and it is APA’s intent to comply with the privacy laws applicable to its operations in such jurisdictions, with no intent to establish operations in other jurisdictions merely because of the availability of or access to the Site in such other jurisdictions. This policy includes examples but is not intended to be restricted in its application to such examples, thus ‘including’ shall mean ‘including without limitation’.

Our Site is a general audience website and a business website. As such, it is not intended for minors or children.

APA may from time to time make changes to this privacy policy to reflect changes in its legal or regulatory obligations or in the manner in which it deals with your personal information. We will post any revised version of this privacy policy on our website, and we encourage you to refer back to it on a regular basis. Any changes to this privacy policy will be effective from the time they are posted, provided that any change that relates to why we collect, use or disclose your personal information will not apply to you, where your consent is required to such collection, use or disclosure, until we have obtained your consent to such change.
