Collecting and Using Information
When you visit and use this website, information is collected from you automatically through the use of "cookies." Cookies are small data files that contain a unique identification number stored on your computer. Our website sends cookies to your computer's browser to allow us to better understand who is coming to our site for the first time or is a returning visitor. When you visit this website, cookies are only used to record your preferences and choices as you navigate through the site. This information helps us to customize the delivery of our website content and make our website more useful to our visitors. The information collected through cookies typically is stored only for the length of time that you are connected to this website. Certain information, however, may in some instances be stored in an encrypted cookie that lasts longer than the duration of the visit to this website.
Other than the collection of information as described above, we will not collect personal information about you when you visit our website, unless you choose to directly provide such information to us when contacting us via e-mail. The data protection rules of the 1998 EC Council Directive 95-46 (“EU Directive”) govern the collection and processing of personal data and we will use this personal information to process your request and, when applicable, respond to you. By contacting us in this manner, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information for purposes of responding to your request. If you provide personal information via email to apply for employment with State Street, you consent to the collection, use and retention for a reasonable period of time of your personal information for the purposes of considering you for the possibility of present or future employment at State Street. Personal information may be transferred out of the European Union and therefore personnel accessing your personal information may do so from a jurisdiction that has less protective data protection laws. Care will be taken to ensure that your personal information is processed accurately and lawfully and is adequately protected. We will not sell, rent, give or otherwise disclose your personal information to anyone outside of State Street or its affiliated companies within the State Street group of companies, without your consent, unless required to do so in accordance with law, regulation or legal process.
