This policy describes how NSK Europe Ltd and its European subsidiaries and affiliates (“NSK Europe” or “we”), use your personal data in the course of our business, when you use our websites, (including business applications) and the NSK Academy platform, and when we send you marketing communications. Contact details of NSK Europe companies are set out in the “Further information” section below.
In this policy personal data means any information that relates to an identifiable natural person – in this case you.
We use your personal data to sell you our products or provide you with our services (including marketing communications, where you have requested them), manage our business, recruit new staff, comply with our legal obligations, and improve and monitor the performance of our websites.
For the purpose of this policy the controller is:
As a controller we make decisions about how and why we use your personal data and, because of this, we are responsible for making sure it is used in accordance with applicable data protection laws. We are required by law to give you the information in this policy.
We collect the following categories of personal data:
We process your personal data for a number of different purposes. We must always have a “lawful basis” (i.e. reason, prescribed by law) for processing your personal data. The table below sets out the purposes for which we process different categories of your personal data and the corresponding lawful basis for that processing. For some processing activities, we consider more than one lawful basis to be relevant – depending on the circumstances.
Please note that we reserve the right to disclose non-personal statistical information to third parties with whom we have contractual obligations. Examples of non-personal information include: domain name, browser type and version, computer operating system and platform, information searched for, pages viewed, time spent on the website and access times.
Unless otherwise provided, we reserve the right to share such information within the NSK Europe umbrella of companies, including any company that manages, and/or performs statistical reporting on the website. Any such company will be legally bound to confidentiality.
We will inform you separately in case your personal data is subject to so-called automated decision-making. In such case we will also provide you with information as to the logic used by such systems. You have the right to object to being subject to such decisions, and/or challenge any decisions made wholly on the basis of any automated decision-making system, including providing any additional evidence to assist the individual reviewing the decision.
NSK Europe Ltd or other subsidiaries established in the UK will normally retain your personal data for 7 years from the end of any contract or event that it relates to, unless we are legally required to retain this information for longer.
Other NSK Europe companies will keep your personal data for as long as we need it to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected and in order to comply with legal and regulatory requirements as well as for the period until which all actions related to our relationship with you expire in accordance with the appropriate statute of limitations. This may mean that some information is held for longer than other information.
Personal data will only be shared with other NSK companies within EU and outside EU, that will take appropriate steps to ensure that their personnel is bound by duties of confidentiality with respect to your personal data.
We will only make transfer outside EU if:
NSK Europe uses third party service providers, including:
Where applicable, your personal data will be processed by the service provider on behalf of NSK Europe. NSK Europe will ensure that any third party that processes your personal data can provide sufficient guarantees regarding the confidentiality and security of your personal data.
NSK works closely with selected social media partners (e.g. YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google). These platforms can be temporarily integrated using plug-ins. If a visitor accesses the website using such a plug-in, the browser creates a direct connection to its servers. In this case the social media partner is given the IP address and other device-related data of a visitor.
In certain circumstances, NSK Europe shares or is obliged to share your personal data with third parties, for the purposes described above and in accordance with applicable data protection laws. These third parties will act as controllers of your personal data in their own right, and they will be responsible for compliance with applicable data protection laws.
These third parties are:
Where NSK Europe’s processing of your personal data is based solely upon your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. If you decide to withdraw your consent NSK will stop processing your personal data for that purpose. This will not impact on the legality of any processing undertaken by us prior to the withdrawal of your consent.
Where our processing of your personal data is based on legitimate interests (see table at paragraph 3 above), you can object to this processing at any time. If you do this, we will need to show either a compelling reason why our processing should continue, which overrides your interests, rights and freedoms or that the processing is necessary for us to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.
Where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object to that processing.
You have also the right to:
You can also lodge a complaint with a competent data protection supervisory authority: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/index_en.htm.
