Use of Information
Hitachi Consulting will use your personal information only to contact you in regards to the specific purpose for which you submitted that information. For example, we may contact you in response to your inquiry to provide information about our company, our services, or about careers with Hitachi Consulting.

If you are an existing customer we may contact you by electronic means without additional consent with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you.

Disclosure of Information
Hitachi Consulting will not sell, rent or lease your personal information. We will not collect or compile personally identifying information for third parties for their unsolicited marketing activities or for consumer marketing initiatives.
Unless we have specifically informed you, obtained your consent, or are permitted or required to do so by the laws of the jurisdiction we operate in, we will only share the personal information you provide to us with affiliates, business partners or third-party service providers who are acting on our behalf, and then only for the uses described in this policy. Hitachi Consulting will attempt to take appropriate steps to ensure that our affiliates, business partners and service providers adequately protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information.
Personal information collected by Hitachi Consulting may be transferred globally to our branch offices, affiliates, business partners or third-party service providers who are established in jurisdictions without comprehensive data protection laws. Where such transfers occur, Hitachi Consulting will attempt to ensure that the policies set forth in this Statement continue to abide.
In the unlikely event of a sale of Hitachi Consulting or a unit or subsidiary thereof, personal information acquired through this website and held by Hitachi Consulting may be made available to a buyer or prospective buyers in order for them to evaluate any such purchase or to operate any parts of Hitachi Consulting's business.
The only other circumstance in which we would disclose your personally identifiable information would be if we are required to do so by law through a subpoena, search warrant, court order or other legal process. In such cases, Hitachi Consulting will make a good faith effort to provide only information that is the subject of the official order or request.
