At NetNumber, we recognize the importance of protecting your personal information and are committed to processing it responsibly and in compliance with applicable data protection laws in all countries in which we operate.
In the normal course of its business activities, NetNumber collects, uses, and sometimes shares personal information of various individuals in order to run its day-to-day operations This Privacy Notice describes NetNumber’s general privacy practices that apply to such personal information collection and use.
As part of its core business, NetNumber provides services to customers that may result in NetNumber processing personal information (such as name, telephone number, address, email) on behalf of those customers. In such cases, NetNumber acts as a “data processor” on behalf of the customer (the customer is the “data controller” for the information provided). This Notice does not apply to such processing. The processing of such personal data on behalf of customers will be carried out by NetNumber in accordance with the terms of the relevant contract or contracts between NetNumber and the customer. This Notice applies solely to those instances where NetNumber is the data controller, meaning that NetNumber decides what personal information to collect and how to process it.
This Notice also does not apply to personal information relating to employees, applicants for employment, and temporary contractors providing services to NetNumber, or others in relationships with such persons that are relevant to their relationship with NetNumber (such as for emergency contact and benefits purposes). For information regarding NetNumber’s processing of such data, please refer to NetNumber’s Employee GDPR Policy – EU, which is accessible from NetNumber’s intranet.

For example, we have implemented a Corporate Security Program (CSP) that establishes standards and policies to be met by all personnel and contractors and by all equipment owned and/or operated by NetNumber. Among other things, such standards and policies aid in minimizing the potential exposure to NetNumber from the loss or unauthorized use of sensitive or company confidential data, including your personal data. The CSP is made up of many policies that span many content areas, including:
- Information Systems Policy
- Physical and Human Resources Policy
