However, the specific requirements, rights and obligations relating to personal data and/or processing activities we are subject to can vary from country to country. The scope of this Notice’s applicability includes the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the Brazilian Data Protection Law (“LGPD”) and the Thai Personal Data Protection Act (“PDPA”). If you use or interact with us through the use of our Website as a business partner (for example as a supplier or customer of Wood), worker, job candidate or as a shareholder and you would like further information, you can refer to our Contacts, Recruitment, Worker or Shareholder Privacy Notices for additional information about our practices and the rights applicable to you.

The personal information that we may collect about you broadly falls into the following categories:
Information that you provide voluntarily
Certain parts of our Website may ask you to provide personal information voluntarily: for example, we may ask you to provide your contact details in order to sign up for news alerts that may be of interest to you and/or to submit enquiries to us. The personal information that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point we ask you to provide your personal information.
Information that we collect automatically
When you visit our Website, we may collect certain information automatically from your device. In some countries, including countries in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), Brazil and Thailand, this information may be considered personal information under applicable data protection laws.
Specifically, the information we collect automatically may include information like your IP address, device type, unique device identification numbers, browser-type, broad geographic location (e.g. country or city-level location) and other technical information. We may also collect information about how your device has interacted with our Website, including the pages accessed and links clicked.
Collecting this information enables us to better understand the visitors who come to our Website, where they come from, and what content on our Website is of interest to them. We use this information for our internal analytics purposes and to improve the quality and relevance of our Website to our visitors.
Some of this information may be collected using cookies and similar tracking technology, as explained further under the heading “Cookies and similar tracking technology”.
Information that we obtain from third party sources
In general, we may collect personal information about you from third parties only for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice or for purposes that we explain to you at the time we collect your personal information.
We may disclose your personal information to the following categories of recipients:
In cases where the GDPR, the LGPD or the PDPA applies, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. In particular, we will normally collect personal information from you only where the processing is in our legitimate interests (to administer our IT systems and networks, to ensure the proper functioning of the Website) and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to process your personal information e.g. in response to lawful requests by public authorities in order to investigate unauthorized interference with our Website. Under certain circumstances, we may also ask for your consent to process your personal information.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).
Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
We use appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the personal information that we collect and process about you. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information.
Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective).
Specifically, our Website servers are located in the United Kingdom, and our group companies and third party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in any of these countries. When we export your personal information to a different country, we will take steps to ensure that such data exports comply with applicable laws.
We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested) or to comply with applicable legal, requirements.
When we have no lawfu grounds to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
If you are a visitor from the EEA, Brazil or Thailand you have the following data protection rights:
Please note that if you are a visitor outside the EEA, Brazil and Thailand, similar rights might apply. If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time in response to changing legal, technical or business developments.
The data controller of your personal information is John Wood group plc and its affiliates, which is registered with the UK’s Data Protection Authority.
