Personal information that you choose to submit
As a general policy, you are not required to disclose your personal data as a condition of using this website. No personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, or email address, is automatically collected from your visit to the website.
However, ArcelorMittal website’s various registration forms and surveys may request that you give us contact information (such as your name, mailing and/or email 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 email 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 website and supply ArcelorMittal with your email 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.
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:

4. Use of IP addresses
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 percent 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, and you do so at your own risk.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of our sites, or your dealings with our sites, you can contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information provided by you via general email inquiries to ArcelorMittal such as your email address is used only to respond to your inquiries in the ordinary course of business, and is never shared with third parties.
