Our web servers may collect the name of the domain you used to access the Internet, the website you came from, and the website you visit next. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits to the site, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about visitors to this site. We may also use this aggregated data to monitor site performance and to make the site both easier and more convenient to use.
When you visit our site, we collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the site. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system and CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol ("IP") address of your originating Internet Service Provider, to try to bring you the best possible service. We may also record search requests and results to try to ensure the accuracy and efficiency of our search engine. We may use your IP address to track your use of the site. This "Click Stream" data may be matched with other information you provide. If you choose to use the contact function, we may ask you to provide us with some basic information about you and/or your company -- such as name, job title, email address -- which enables us to provide services and information to you, and helps make our contact with you as productive as possible.

To continually improve the effectiveness of our customer service communications, we may examine e-mail communications with you for its effectiveness.

We anonymize these e-mails in accordance with the requirements of the local Data Protection Acts before transmitting them to a processor / service provider outside of the EEA for their analysis. In the unlikely case that data are re-identified after transfer, the security of your data is safeguarded at all times by the agreement of the service provider to EU Model Contract Clauses.

Sharing with your consent. Our services may present you with the opportunity to opt in to receive information or marketing offers from third parties or to otherwise consent to the sharing of your information with third parties. If you agree to have your personal information shared, your personal information will be disclosed to the third party subject to the privacy notice and business practices of that third party.
Non-personal information. We may share non-personal information, such as aggregate user statistics, demographic information, and usage information with third parties.
We may disclose your personal information, usage information, and other information about you to parties acquiring part or all of our assets, as well as to attorneys and consultants. If we transfer your information to an acquirer, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the acquirer to use your information in a manner that is consistent with this Website Privacy Notice. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, your information may be considered a company asset that may be sold or transferred to third parties.
We may disclose information about you to others if we have a good faith belief that we are required to do so by law or legal process, to respond to claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Brambles, or others.
Special Provisions for our European Users
By providing us with information and data, you must understand and agree that Brambles may collect, use and disclose personal data for commercial and marketing purposes, and may provide such information (consistent with the terms of this Website Privacy Notice) within the company and its affiliates - any or all of which may be outside your resident jurisdiction. In addition, such information and data are collected and stored in a database and on servers located outside your resident jurisdiction, and more specifically in the United States and other countries in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as those in your country of residence or citizenship.
Please be aware that the personal data you share may be transferred outside of the European Union and European Economic Area, and in a database and on servers in the United States and other countries in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as those in your country of residence or citizenship. Such transfers will occur only where appropriate safeguards are in place, including but not limited to Model Clauses pursuant to the European Commission’s decision (C(2010)593) of 5 February 2010 on Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries which do not ensure an adequate level of data protection.
How do you access and update your information, and what choices do you have?
Please contact us if you wish to modify or verify personal identifying information that you have submitted to us or if you have questions about the information maintained by us.
We offer you certain choices about what information we collect from you, how we use and share the information, and how we communicate with you. To help protect your privacy and security, we may take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID.
You may opt out of (i) using your personal information to provide you with information or offers; and (ii) receiving newsletters, emails or other communications by contacting us as indicated in the "How to Contact Us" section of this Website Privacy Notice. If we deny an access request, we will notify you of the reasons for the denial.

We reserve the right to modify or supplement this Website Privacy Notice at any time. Changes to the policy will be posted at least 30 days prior to the effective date. The date below indicates when this Website Privacy Notice was last changed.
What else should you know?
Some of our services and social networking features enable you to submit your own content for public posting. Information you post in this fashion becomes public information and is not subject to this Website Privacy Notice. We cannot control how others may use publicly-posted information.
Any information, communications, or material of any type or nature that you post or submit to our websites or mobile applications (including, but not limited to any Brambles or its affiliates websites contained on a social media platform or website such as Facebook or Twitter) by e-mail, posting, messaging, uploading, downloading, or otherwise (collectively, a “Submission”), is done at your own risk and without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of any social media platform or website, and we are therefore not responsible for any content or Submissions contained on such sites and platforms.
California Residents and Do-Not-Track Disclosure
If you are a California resident, you may ask us to refrain from sharing your information (whether collected online or offline) with our affiliates for their marketing purposes, if the affiliates are separate legal entities. Please tell us your preference by contacting us as indicated in the "How to Contact Us" section of this Website Privacy Notice.
Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based or other do-not-track ("DNT") mechanisms, Brambles websites do not respond to web browser-based DNT signals.
Privacy Practices of Third Parties
Some of our services and social networking features enable you to submit your own content for public posting. For instance, our site displays the Twitter icon and the LinkedIn icon. When you click on these third party icons, a new window will open for that company’s website. Information you post in this fashion becomes public information and is not subject to this Website Privacy Notice. We cannot control how others may use publicly-posted information.
Any information, communications, or material of any type or nature that you post or submit to our websites or mobile applications (including, but not limited to any Brambles website contained on a social media platform or website such as Facebook or Twitter) by e-mail, posting, messaging, uploading, downloading, or otherwise (collectively, a “Submission”), is done at your own risk and without any expectation of privacy. Brambles cannot control the actions of other users of any social media platform or website, and Brambles is therefore not responsible for any content or submissions contained on such sites and platforms.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
We maintain certain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to help protect against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of your personal information. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be completely secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or that we acquire.
