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 Distribution Solutions UK 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 Distribution Solutions UK may use this data in the future to provide other information about ArcelorMittal Distribution Solutions UK that might be of interest to you.

    3. Use of IP addresses

    An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet provider whenever you're surfing the Web. When you request pages from ArcelorMittal Distribution Solutions UK’s Web Site, our servers log your IP address. ArcelorMittal Distribution Solutions UK collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to audit the use of our Site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that your session will be logged, but you are anonymous to us. We may exceptionally use your IP addresses in cooperation with your Internet provider to identify you if we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms of Use or to protect our service, Sites, customers, or others.

    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 Distribution Solutions UK cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
