Protecting your privacy and personal data is important to us. ArcelorMittal has adopted a data protection procedure (“Binding Corporate Rules”). This procedure provides a global and simplified legal basis for all databases and applications sharing personal data within the group. The ArcelorMittal data protection procedure is a group-wide procedure ensuring a minimum standard of protection for personal data shared at global level, similar to the protection offered under EU rules.
1. Personal data
In general, you are not required to disclose your personal data as a condition of using this Web Site. No personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, or e-mail address, is automatically collected from your visit to the Web Site.
Personal information that you choose to submit
However, ArcelorMittal Web Site’s various registration forms and surveys may request that you give us contact information (such as your name, mailing and/or e-mail address) and profile data (such as your preferences). In many cases, you choose the amount of information you supply (e.g. when sending us information through the Site, you may choose to include only an e-mail address for replies). There may be cases, however, where some of the information requested is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. In such cases, if you do not provide mandatory personal information with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
If you request information through this Web Site and supply ArcelorMittal with your e-mail address or your name and postal address, you accept that this data will be used for the purpose of providing the requested information and that ArcelorMittal may use this data in the future to provide other information about ArcelorMittal that might be of interest to you. Please note that in order to process your query, your personal data may be shared by various ArcelorMittal subsidiaries around the world.
You have the right to consult your personal data, to correct your personal data, if necessary, and to withdraw your consent to the use of your personal data. For this purpose you may contact ArcelorMittal at the following address:
24-26, Boulevard d’Avranches
ArcelorMittal may disclose user information in special cases when we have reasons to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with ArcelorMittal’s rights or property, other users of the Web Site, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.
Personally identifiable information is never sold or leased to any third parties outside of ArcelorMittal group. We may share information provided by you with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf. In this case, the service provider is committed to use your data only for ArcelorMittal purposes.
If you apply for jobs through the Web Site, you accept that the application will be processed either by ArcelorMittal or by the relevant subsidiary within the ArcelorMittal group. ArcelorMittal or the relevant subsidiary will use the personal data supplied by the applicants for the purpose of processing the application. Applicants have the right to consult their personal data, to correct the personal data, if necessary, and to withdraw their consent to the use of their personal data. For this purpose applicants may contact the recipient of the application at the e-mail address to which they have sent the application.

Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, ArcelorMittal cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
Information provided by you via general e-mail inquiries to ArcelorMittal such as your e-mail address is used only to respond to your inquiries in the ordinary course of business, and is never shared with third parties.
