Privacy Policy

Nexans considers privacy an important issue, so this Privacy Policy outlines the types of personal information we gather when you use one of Nexans web sites and some of the steps we take to safeguard it. These principles apply to personally identifying information we ask for and that you provide. By this we mean information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address, e-mail address or other contact details.

Data Collection

Browsing of our web sites and most other services do not require any personally identifying information.
In certain sections of the site, in order to provide you with products or services that may be of interest, you may be invited to provide 'personal' information that identifies you that is to say your first name, last name, e-mail address, or other contact information that you may voluntarily submit to us: job title, function, country, language preference, business phone, mobile phone, fax number, fields of interest, company name, company type, postal address of the company, number of employees.

Visitors of the site can choose not to enter any personal information.

Nexans may collect limited non-personally identifying information your browser makes available whenever you visit a website. This log information includes your Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your query and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. We use this information to better understand user behavior and to further improve our offering. When we require personally identifying information, we will inform you about the types of information we collect and how we use it. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing your personal information with us. It is then up to you to decide if you want to provide the information or not.

Please note that, once you register on the site, your data will be stored as long as your account remains active on the site. However, if Nexans does not witness any activity over a period of 24 months, it gets classified as inactive account and your data will be anonymized.

Use and Disclosure of Personal Data

Data available to Nexans will be used for the purpose of the technical administration of our website, responding to your direct enquiries and may also be used to provide you with additional information related to content viewed online. You will be able to unsubscribe to marketing communications at any stage. All marketing emails will include unsubscribe links or you can request this at any time by emailing the contact below.

Information Sharing

In certain circumstances, direct contractual partners of Nexans such as outsourced agencies/external partners (e.g. an event organizer acting on behalf of Nexans or any its affiliated companies) may have access to limited information necessary to contact you. At all times we will ensure that contractual partners of Nexans put in place a comparable level of data protection.

Beyond the above, no personal data information will be shared with third parties.

We do not sell or transfer your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals, unless we have your consent. We may share such information in any of the following limited circumstances:

  • We have your expressed consent.
  • We provide such information to trusted businesses or persons for the sole purpose of processing your request on our behalf in compliance with this Privacy Policy and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  • We conclude that we are required by law.
  • We may store and process personal information collected on our site in any country in which Nexans or our hosting providers maintain facilities. By using our services, you consent to the transfer of your information among these facilities, including those located outside your country.
  • We may share aggregated information with others which do not include any personally identifying information.

Information Security

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. We restrict access to your personally identifying information to Nexans employees who need to know that information in order to fulfill your request or supply our services.
