1. What is the scope of this Privacy Policy?


Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as name, IP address or email address. NTT DATA UK is the data controller of personal data we collect from and about you through the Website and the Company Services. We will only process such data in compliance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy should be read in conjunction with the NTT DATA UK Cookies Policy, available on our Website. Both policies are applicable to all users of our Website and/or Company Services (e.g. without any need to register or subscribe to a specific service).


2. What type of personal data do we collect?


We collect (1) registration data, (2) data that you have voluntarily shared, (3) data collected when you access and interact with the Website or the Company Service (“Activity Data), and (4) information from other sources. More specifically:

  1. Registration data: the information you submit to register for a Company Service. Registration data may include your name, surname, email address, country, postcode etc.
  2. Data that you have voluntarily shared: the responses you submit to requests for information when using the Company Services or interacting with the Website. For example, when you sign up to our newsletters or online services, or interact with us through our contact section.

  • Special categories of personal data. We ask that you do not send or disclose any information included in a special category of personal data (such as social security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, criminal background or trade union membership) on or through the Website, the Company Services or otherwise.
