This document describes ORX’s policy regarding information received about you during visits to our web site. ORX recognises the importance of protecting the privacy of information we may collect from our online visitors. The amount and type of information received depends on how you use our site.

We may use general, not personally identifiable collected information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of customer visits. During normal web site usage we do not collect or store personally identifiable information such as name, mailing address, e-mail address or phone number. There are instances where ORX requests personally identifiable information to provide the web site visitor a service or correspondence (e.g. the ORX Operational Risk Report). This information, such as name, mailing address, e-mail address, type of request and possibly additional information is collected and is used only to fulfil your request. 

Your personal information is never provided to any other company, except to the ORX subcontractor, if any, who is in charge of providing you the requested service or correspondence. By accepting this policy, you authorise ORX to provide your personal information to its subcontractor.

Internet users may decide to send ORX personally identifying information. ORX will use this information only to determine how to respond to the visitor’s message. We will not use this information other than to resolve the matter identified in the message. ORX takes reasonable precautions and uses appropriate security technology to protect your data. Data is only stored for as long as necessary.

Your attention is explicitly drawn to the lack of confidentiality on data transmissions via the Internet. Please see the “Security of data transfers” section of our general terms of use.
