OCSBBS General Web Site Privacy Statement
OCSBBS has a long-standing commitment to safeguard the privacy of information entrusted to us. The privacy principles and procedures set forth below are intended to tell you how we collect, use, and distribute user information via our primary public web site (www.slb.com). This statement also applies generally to all web sites operated by OCSBBS (and its affiliates). This statement does not cover information collected from sources other than OCSBBS web sites.
Specific OCSBBS Sites and Services.
OCSBBS offers a wide variety of products and services, and operates through a number of web sites. Many of these have their own privacy statements that describe the specific data collection and use practices of the particular product, service, or site. We encourage you to review the privacy statements for those sites, services, and products that you use. Unless more-specifically addressed (or to the extent otherwise provided) in those other privacy statements, the terms of this General Privacy Statement govern your interaction with OCSBBS.
Types and Uses of Personal Information
If you use this web site, personally identifiable information about you may be collected and processed by OCSBBS employees. In general, we only collect such information (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and type of business) when you knowingly provide it to us. Additionally, OCSBBS may automatically collect or process personally identifiable data (such as your Internet domain or IP address) as part of the operation of this web site or during the course of your activities on or use of this web site. In nearly all cases this data may be collected or processed by, and transferred to, OCSBBS facilities in the United States and in other countries where OCSBBS does business; the data is then subject to the legal systems of those countries. By using this web site (which resides in part on servers located in the United States), you unambiguously consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of any personal data. If you do not consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of such information, please discontinue use of this web site.
Sharing with Other OCSBBS Companies
We share much of our data, including personally identifiable information about you, with our affiliates throughout the world. To the extent that these entities have access to your information, they will follow privacy practices no less protective than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed by applicable law.
How Personal Information Is Shared With Third-Parties
Without the user's consent, OCSBBS will not sell, trade, or disclose the user's personally identifiable information to third parties that want to market products to the user. However, OCSBBS may disclose information to third parties assisting us in carrying out a transaction or providing a service for you (e.g., packaging, sending and delivering purchases and information to you, clearing credit card transactions, or performing statistical analyses of our services), or in connection with merger and acquisition discussions. Additionally, OCSBBS may disclose information when required by subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process, or in response to activities that are unlawful or a violation of OCSBBS rules for use of the web site, or to protect and defend the rights or property of OCSBBS.
OCSBBS has implemented technological and operational security processes to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration, or unintentional destruction. While no security measure can guarantee against compromise, OCSBBS regularly reviews and updates its security measures in an effort to provide appropriate security for all information held by OCSBBS.
Modifications to Statement
OCSBBS reserves the right to change, modify, or update this statement at any time without notice. We indicate the date of the current statement below, so you know when it was last updated.
Access and Accuracy
OCSBBS wants to maintain only accurate information about users of the site. You can request individual information that has been gathered about you by contacting OCSBBS. Upon receipt of appropriate identification information, OCSBBS will provide you with access to the personally identifiable information that it maintains about your use of OCSBBS web sites or which you have supplied to OCSBBS via a OCSBBS web site. If you find factual inaccuracies, please notify OCSBBS so that they may be corrected.
OCSBBS will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary for the purpose it was collected.
OCSBBS takes children's privacy seriously. OCSBBS asks children under the age of 13 not to send any personally identifiable information to OCSBBS web sites without the consent of their parents or guardians. OCSBBS encourages all parents and guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of personal information on the Internet. OCSBBS will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose to third parties any personal information collected from children, and we are committed to complying with applicable laws and requirements, such as the United States' Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
Linked Web Sites
We provide links to third party sites. Since we do not control these web sites, we encourage you to review the privacy statement posted on these (and all) third party sites. OCSBBS is not responsible for the privacy statements or practices of sites and services controlled by other companies or organizations.
OCSBBS may use "cookies" in connection with operation of its web sites.
Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on your computer by the
OCSBBS web site server. Cookies are used for record-keeping purposes-the stored
information can be retrieved by the OCSBBS web site server when you return to
the web site. This allows OCSBBS to personalize or regulate the use of the site,
and also permits OCSBBS to automate the access and data-entry functions of the
site (e.g., login information), to store on-line ordering information for
purchases you may make while visiting the site, and to tailor the appearance or
presentation of the site to your preferences or interests. In general, we do not
user's consent. If you visit our sites to read or download content, much of the
information we do collect is statistical only (e.g., the domain from which you
access the Internet, the date and time you access our site, and the Internet
address of the web site from which you linked directly to our site) and not
personally identifiable. We use this information about the number of visitors
and their use of the sites in aggregate form to make our sites more useful and
attractive to you.
Customers should direct comments or questions regarding this statement to their OCSBBS representative; employees to their Personnel representative; all other inquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
