Schlumberger 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 Schlumberger (and its affiliates). This statement does not cover information collected from sources other than Schlumberger web sites.
Schlumberger General Web Site Privacy Statement covers the following topics:
Schlumberger 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 Schlumberger.
If you use this web site, personally identifiable information about you may be collected and processed by Schlumberger 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, Schlumberger 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, Schlumberger facilities in the United States and in other countries where Schlumberger 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.
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.
Without the user's consent, Schlumberger will not sell, trade, or disclose the user's personally identifiable information to third parties that want to market products to the user. However, Schlumberger 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, Schlumberger 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 Schlumberger rules for use of the web site, or to protect and defend the rights or property of Schlumberger.
Schlumberger 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, Schlumberger regularly reviews and updates its security measures in an effort to provide appropriate security for all information held by Schlumberger.
Schlumberger 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.
Schlumberger wants to maintain only accurate information about users of the site. You can request individual information that has been gathered about you by contacting Schlumberger. Upon receipt of appropriate identification information, Schlumberger will provide you with access to the personally identifiable information that it maintains about your use of Schlumberger web sites or which you have supplied to Schlumberger via a Schlumberger web site. If you find factual inaccuracies, please notify Schlumberger so that they may be corrected.
Schlumberger will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary for the purpose it was collected.
Schlumberger takes children's privacy seriously. Schlumberger asks children under the age of 13 not to send any personally identifiable information to Schlumberger web sites without the consent of their parents or guardians. Schlumberger encourages all parents and guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of personal information on the Internet. Schlumberger 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).
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. Schlumberger is not responsible for the privacy statements or practices of sites and services controlled by other companies or organizations.
Customers should direct comments or questions regarding this statement to their Schlumberger Representative; employees to their Personnel representative; all other inquiries should be directed here.
