We use cookies to provide the Site and services, gather information about your usage patterns when you navigate this Site, in order to enhance your personalised experience, and to understand usage patterns to improve our Site and services. We also allow certain trusted partners to place cookies on our Site in order to collect information about your online activities on our Site over time and across different websites that you visit. This information is used to provide advertising tailored to your interests on websites that you visit, also known as interest based advertising, and to analyse the effectiveness of such advertising.

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies: These are required for the operation of our Site. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas. These cookies are session cookies that are erased when you close your browser.

  • Analytical/Performance Cookies: These allow us to recognise and count the number of users of our Site and understand how such users navigate through our Site.

Data Subject Rights

Where required by applicable law, you have the right to obtain confirmation that we maintain certain Personal Data relating to you, to verify its content, origin and accuracy, as well as the right to access, review, port, delete, or to block or withdraw consent to the processing of certain Personal Data (without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal), by contacting us at GDPR@NTTDATA.comIn particular, you have the right to object to our use of Personal Data for direct marketing and in certain other situations at any time.

You also have an important role in protecting your Personal Data. You should not share your username and password with anyone, and you should not re-use passwords across more than one website. If you have any reason to believe that your username or password has been compromised, please contact us as detailed below.

Cross-Border Data Transfers

We transfer Personal Data to various jurisdictions as necessary for the purposes described above, including to jurisdictions that may not provide the same level of data protection as your home country. We provide appropriate protections for cross-border transfers as required by law for international data transfers. With respect to transfers originating from the European Economic Area ("EEA"), we implement standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission, and other appropriate solutions to address cross-border transfers as required by applicable law. Where required by such laws, you may request a copy of the suitable mechanisms that we have in place by contacting us as detailed below.

Other Issues

  1. What is the legal basis of processing?

    Some jurisdictions require an explanation of the legal basis for the collection and processing of Personal Data. We have several different legal grounds on which we collect and process Personal Data, including: (i) as necessary to perform a transaction (such as in order to provide the services you requested); (ii) as necessary to comply with a legal obligation (such as when we use Personal Data for record keeping to substantiate tax liability); (iii) consent (where you have provided consent as appropriate under applicable law, such as for direct marketing or certain cookies); and (iv) as necessary for legitimate interests (such as when we act to maintain our business generally, including maintaining the safety and security of the Site). With respect to legitimate interests, given that we are a B2B company, we typically collect and process limited Personal Data about customer contacts and other individuals acting in their business capacities, as part of our overall effort to reduce the privacy impact on individuals.

  2. What are the consequences of not providing Personal Data?

    You are not required to provide all Personal Data identified in this Privacy Policy to use our Site or to interact with us offline, but certain functionality will not be available if you do not provide certain Personal Data. If you do not provide certain Personal Data, we may not be able to respond to your request, perform a transaction with you, or provide you with marketing that we believe you would find valuable.

  3. Do we engage in automated decision-making without human intervention?

    We do not use automated decision-making without human intervention, including profiling, in a way that produces legal effects concerning you or otherwise significantly affects you.

  4. Does the Site honour do not track ("DNT") signals sent via browsers?

    Given the divergent practices of organisations that offer browsers and the lack of a standard in the marketplace, we do not respond to DNT signals at this time.

  5. How long do we retain Personal Data?

    We typically retain Personal Data related to marketing activities for as long as you accept marketing communications from us, and upon request, we will securely delete such data in accordance with applicable law. For Personal Data that we collect and process for other purposes described above, we typically retain such Personal Data for no longer than for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and as otherwise needed to address tax, corporate, compliance, litigation, employment and other legal rights and obligations.

  6. Are third-party websites governed by this Privacy Policy?

    This Site contains links and references to other websites administered by unaffiliated third parties. This Privacy Policy does not apply to such third-party sites. When you click a link to visit a third-party website, you will be subject to that website's privacy practices. We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the privacy and security practices of the linked third-party websites before providing any Personal Data on that website.

  7. How does NTT DATA handle employee and contractor privacy issues?

    Personal Data about our employees and contractors are addressed through internal company policies and procedures, and are outside the scope of this Privacy Policy.

  8. How will we handle any changes to this Privacy Policy?

    We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time as our services and privacy practices change, or as required by law. The effective date of our Privacy Policy is posted above, and we encourage you to visit our Site periodically to stay informed about our privacy practices.
