Information you provide to us and how we use it.

We collect personal information from you, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address only if you provide it to us.  If you are on a part of our website that asks you to provide your personal information, it will be clear what personal information we are requesting. You may choose to provide this information for the following reasons, if applicable:

  1. Marketing and associated activities

While on our site you may contact us to request information about our products and services. If you contact us, we may keep a record of your correspondence or comments, including any information in them. We use this information to enable us to respond to your message and to help us provide better service.

From time to time we send our visitors e-mail messages with announcements, enhancements, maintenance information and general updates. If you no longer wish to receive these promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each communication or you may contact us.

We may request certain information from you (such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, business requirements or feedback) to help us evaluate our site traffic and overall usage, improve our on-line services, and build better websites. We may add information from third parties to this collected information, for instance to research prospective clients. From time to time, we may purchase marketing data from third parties and add it to our existing user database, to better target our advertising and to provide pertinent offers in which we think you would be interested. To enrich our profiles of individual customers, we may tie this information to the personally identifiable information they have provided to us.

We may post customer testimonials on our website which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer’s name. We obtain the customer’s consent prior to posting the testimonial. NEC Energy Solutions is the sole owner of the information collected on www.neces.com.

  1. Order Processing

If you purchase products or services from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).
We use this information for billing purposes and to fulfill your order(s). If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you. This information is also used to send you updates on the product or service you purchased. We use third parties to process the credit card transactions. The billing information is not stored on our servers.

  1. Job Applications

If you submit us your job application and you further agree to participate in a selection procedure we may collect and process contact information that you provide to us such as your name, email address and phone number, date of birth, passport or identifying card data, nationality, signature, image, academic and professional data and job history to manage and administer the application and carry out our selection procedures, or to comply with any relevant legal or regulatory obligations (e.g. non-discrimination regulations). We may also access to the public information included in your professional social network profiles (such as LinkedIn). We will ensure that this processing is proportionate to the purposes outlined above.

The legal basis for processing the personal data is our legitimate interest in the management of the site and the relationship in respect of your contact request, order processing or job application and further contractual relationship as well as our legitimate interests in respect of such relationships, or where appropriate your consent freely given by accepting this privacy policy.

Personal data will be processed while it is relevant for it particular purpose and subsequently for the period of time that prevailing legislation requires such personal data be held thereafter.

You shall promptly notify NEC of any change in the data provided, responding in any case of their accuracy and completeness.

Sharing your Personal Information

NEC ES does not sell or rent personal information about our website visitors.  Under certain circumstances, we may share your personal information as described below. We share information provided by our website, or generated by your use of our website (or both), with service providers that have been retained to perform services on our behalf or on behalf of our affiliates (i.e., emailing or direct mail services, marketing services, Web analytics) to assist with the  services on our site. When you register on the website or purchase products or services from us on-line, we will share your name and address as necessary for the service provider to provide the service. These third parties are not permitted to use such information for their own purposes.  To respond to your inquiries, process orders, to keep you informed about your order status, or to share knowledge about an issue or to be able to propose suitable jobs within the NEC Group, we may share information you provide through this website with one or more of our affiliates throughout the world. If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area (“EEA”), please note that we are located outside the EEA, and some of our affiliates and service providers may be located in countries outside of the EEA that do not have data protection laws that are equivalent to those of your country. However, we take adequate measures to ensure that your personal information will at all times be protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Security

We take the security of your personal information seriously and use appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, please contact us.
