Without these data, we will generally not be able to enter into an agreement with you or to perform under such agreement. Other than for the aforementioned purposes for processing your personal data, you will provide us with your personal data entirely voluntarily and there are generally no detrimental effects if you choose not to provide such personal data to us.

What are my rights with respect to my personal data?

If you are an EU citizen or non-EU national residing in the EU, subject to certain conditions, you may have a right of access to your personal data which we hold (Article 15 GDPR subject to the restrictions under applicable local law), a right to rectification of inaccurate personal data which we hold (Article 16 GDPR), a right to erasure of your personal data in certain circumstances where Novelis has no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing (Article 17 GDPR subject to the restrictions under applicable local law), a right to restriction and to object to the processing of your personal data which we hold (Article 18 and 21 GDPR) and a right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR).

We ask that you provide such information which we may reasonably require in order to confirm your identity and in order to locate the information that you seek. Where we have reasonable doubts concerning your identity, we will request the provision of additional information in order to prevent unauthorized disclosure of personal data. Where requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, we reserve the right to either charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication of taking the action requested or refuse to act on the request.

Information about your right to withdraw your consent pursuant to Article 7 (3) GDPR

In case you have granted your consent to us for the processing of your personal data, your consent may be withdrawn at any time. This also applies to consents given to us before the GDPR enters into force, i.e. before 25 May 2018. The withdrawal of your consent has an effect only for the future and does not affect the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data based on your consent before its withdrawal.

Information about your right to object pursuant to Article 21 GDPR

If you are an EU citizen or non-EU national residing in the EU, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of your personal data which is based on point (e) of Article 6 (1) (processing in the public interest) and point (f) of Article 6 (1) GDPR (processing based on legitimate interests). If you object to the processing of your personal data, we will no longer process your personal data unless we have compelling legitimate grounds for such processing which override your interests, rights and freedom or, alternatively, such processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Non-Personal Data

We occasionally collect certain aggregate and non-personal data when you visit a Novelis website. Aggregate and non-personal data does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many visitors visited our website and the pages accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our website to our visitors. We collect this information either through “cookie” technology or with “web beacons,” as explained below.


Like many businesses, we may use browser cookies on this website. Browser cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. We use browser cookies to tell us, for example, whether you’ve visited us before or if you’re a new visitor and to help us identify website features in which you may have the greatest interest. Browser cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular website. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new browser cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new browser cookie, and how to disable existing browser cookies. Remember though, without browser cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our website features.

Web Beacons

Certain pages on our website contain “web beacons” (also known as internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party. We use log files to store the data that is collected through web beacons. With both cookies and web beacon technology, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.

Links to Other Sites

From time-to-time we provide links to other websites for your convenience and information. These sites may have their own privacy policies in place, which we recommend you review if you visit any linked websites. We are not responsible for the content of linked non-Novelis sites or any use of the sites. Links to various non-Novelis websites do not constitute or imply endorsement by Novelis of these websites, any products or services described on these sites, or of any other material contained in them.

Links to other Novelis websites may also be provided. These websites may collect personal data for the purposes described in this information or for other purposes, including the sale of goods and services. These websites may have their own privacy policies in place, which we recommend you review if you visit any linked websites.

Changes to this statement

Novelis may change this Privacy Policy from time to time; when updates are made, the Privacy Policy version date (located at the bottom of this Privacy Policy) will also be updated to reflect that a revision occurred. We encourage you to periodically reread this Privacy Policy to see if there have been any changes that may affect you. Changes to the Privacy Policy do not apply retroactively.
