Privacy Statement

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:


Specific Schlumberger Sites and Services

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.

Types and Uses of Personal Information

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.

Sharing with Other Schlumberger Companies

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.

How Personal Information Is Shared With Third-Parties

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.

Security Measures

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.

Modifications to Statement

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.

Access and Accuracy

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.

Data Retention

Schlumberger will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary for the purpose it was collected.

Children

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).

Photo and Video Usage

Many SEED events are photographed and filmed by participants or SEED representatives. The resulting images and videos may be used by SEED for promotional purposes on our Web site, in social media spaces, and as part of any videos, brochures, or other items. It is the responsibility of the school administration and SEED coordinator to obtain permission to use any photos and videos from all the people involved—teachers, volunteers, and parents or guardians of the students. Therefore, signed photo and video releases must be collected from all participants before the event. Parents or teachers who do not want their image or their child’s image used for the purposes outlined above must notify the coordinator and/or school administration prior to each event.

Linked Web Sites

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.

Use of Cookies

Schlumberger may use "cookies" in connection with operation of its web sites. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on your computer by the Schlumberger web site server. Cookies are used for record-keeping purposes-the stored information can be retrieved by the Schlumberger web site server when you return to the web site. This allows Schlumberger to personalize or regulate the use of the site, and also permits Schlumberger to automate the access and data-entry functions of the site (e.g., login information), to store on-line ordering information for purchases you may make while visiting the site, and to tailor the appearance or presentation of the site to your preferences or interests. In general, we do not use cookies to track the navigational habits of identified users without the user's consent. If you visit our sites to read or download content, much of the information we do collect is statistical only (e.g., the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our site) and not personally identifiable. We use this information about the number of visitors and their use of the sites in aggregate form to make our sites more useful and attractive to you. The use of cookies is common in the industry, and they are used at most major web sites. Cookies will not be used to pass any information from your computer except the specific information placed into the cookie from one participating Schlumberger web site when the cookie is retrieved by another participating Schlumberger web site. You may wish to adjust your Web browser to inform you whenever a cookie is to be used, or to reject all cookies automatically. However, if you elect not to accept cookies, some parts of the web site may not function properly or permit access. For more information on cookies, see http://www.cookiecentral.com/faq.htm.
