Privacy Policy

How your personal information is used by metalweb and Reliance Steel & Aluminum Corp.

metalweb respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information you share with us. This policy describes how metalweb collects and uses your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information. Other metalweb Group companies may store and process your information and such companies might be situated outside of the EEA (including, situated in the United States).

We take appropriate measures to ensure that the information disclosed to us is kept secure, accurate and up to date and kept only for so long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is used.

Further purposes for which we might use your information

We may also use such information for the purposes of: 
assessing your suitability for a current and/or future vacancy and to check your identity, we may provide your personal information to a recruitment agency (who act on our behalf) who make a request for the files of credit reference agencies to be searched. These credit searches may be recorded on your credit reference file and the information used by other credit granters for making credit decisions about you and the people with whom you are financially associated, for fraud prevention, money laundering prevention and occasionally for tracing debtors. Information used for these purposes will include publicly available information such as the electoral roll, county court judgements, bankruptcy orders or repossessions. We may ask credit reference agencies to provide a credit scoring computation. Credit scoring uses a number of factors to work out risks involved in any application. A score is given to each factor and a total score obtained. Where automatic credit scoring computations are used, acceptance or rejection of your application will not depend only on the results of the credit scoring process;

identifying and carrying out research about the users of our services; or we may from time to time make your personal information available to other members of the metalweb Group of companies to provide you with information about offers and services which we believe may be of interest to you.

In order to carry out the above we may contact you by mail, telephone, fax or e-mail. By providing us with your address, telephone numbers, fax number, or email address you consent to being contacted by these methods for these purposes.

Further, we may also make your personal information available to third parties where we are under a legal obligation to do so.
