Data we collect
If you choose to receive access to some of our thought-leadership materials, you will be asked to provide us with some personal data, including your name and e-mail address. We will use this data to provide you with the materials you request. Where permissible and/or with your permission, we may also use this data to provide you with details about our products and services that may be of interest to you.
We will also collect your device’s IP address. This data is collected automatically when you access our Web site in order to provide the services to you. This information also helps us to diagnose problems with our server and to improve the services we offer to you.
We use technologies that collect data about the use of our Web site which do not identify you directly. We use this data to compile statistics about our visitors and the ways they use our Web site. For example, we log which pages users access and which Web browsers and operating systems they use. We may also determine which Web page you are coming from before visiting our Web site and whether you are accessing our site from a corporate network to more accurately gauge our users’ demographics.
We do not intentionally collect any sensitive personal data through our Web site. Sensitive personal data means the various categories of personal data identified by applicable data privacy laws as requiring special treatment. These categories can include data relating to ethnic origin or race, marital status, political opinions or affiliations, ideological views or activities, trade union membership, religious beliefs, physical or mental health, genetic or biometric information, sexual orientation, information on social security measures, or administrative or criminal proceedings or records. We therefore suggest that you do not provide sensitive personal data of this type to us through our Web site.
Confidentiality of customer information
Consistent with our customer obligations, it has always been our policy to exercise the utmost discretion regarding the information our customers entrust to us. We accept and process confidential customer information, including data we collect in the course of providing services to our customers, subject to our customer’s direction and control, and we maintain reasonable and appropriate security precautions. Because we operate globally, our systems may make data related to your matters accessible from our various offices around the world, and we often transfer customer data between our offices. This data is transferred in accordance with the requirements of our intergroup data transfer agreement based on the Standard Contractual Clauses defined in Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
We never rent, trade, sell, or share your information with any unrelated parties except as necessary or appropriate to conduct our business activities, subject to appropriate confidentiality, privacy, and information security commitments provided by the receiving party; or to further your interests; or as permitted or required by law; or as authorized or directed by you. Please feel free to raise any questions, concerns or specific directions you may have regarding the privacy and security of your data to the Numat employee who is handling your matter or to firstname.lastname@example.org
