Privacy Policy

This online privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes the kinds of information we may gather during your visit to the NBBJ website located at nbbj.com, meanstheworld.co, any website branded NBBX, or any affiliated network of websites (including any versions optimized for viewing on a wireless or tablet device); all email newsletters published or distributed by NBBJ; all applications published by NBBJ; and all other interactive features, services, and communications provided by NBBJ (“Sites”), why we gather your information and how we may use it. The practices described in this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered online at our Sites. It does not apply to information that you may submit to us offline or to sites maintained by other companies or organizations to which we may link or who may link to us.

By visiting our Sites, you are accepting the practices described in our online Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to modify or amend our Privacy Policy from time to time without notice. Your use of our Sites following the posting of changes to these terms confirms your acceptance of those changes.

What Information is Gathered?
We may collect two types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Sites, personal information and non-personal information. Personal information is information that you may supply to us and which can individually identify you, such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, billing and contact information. Non-personal information includes information that does not personally identify you, but may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the Service and the Internet.

We collect the personal information from you in the following circumstances:

  • When you register for an account on the Sites
  • When you request customer support or submit content to the Sites or to NBBJ
  • When you apply or are hired for a job at NBBJ

When you interact with the Sites, we may collect certain information that does not identify you individually, and our servers may automatically keep an activity log of your use of the Sites (“Non-Personal Information”). We may collect and store the following categories of Non-Personal Information:

  • Analytics and usage information about your use of the Sites. This information includes a reading history of the pages you view. We use this information to provide a more customized experience on the Sites.
  • Additional “traffic data” and log files such as time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, and referring website addresses.

Use of Cookies and/or Web Storage
Like many websites, we may use “cookies,” which are small text files that are stored on your computer or equipment when you visit certain online pages that record your preferences and actions. We may use cookies to track use of our Sites and online services. We may also use cookies to monitor traffic, improve the Sites and make it easier and/or relevant for your use.

We may also use “Web Storage” to store data about your use of our Sites. Web Storage is a feature in some browsers that permits websites to store data within your browser rather than using a cookie. This should make this data more secure and make your browser perform better. We do not share or provide information we may store in Web Storage.

How Do We Use Information We Gather?
Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not disclose information about your Personal Information collected online to any companies not part of NBBJ or its subsidiaries or related entities. We may and will use your Personal Information to respond to your inquiries and process your requests (e.g. job applications). In no event will we sell or rent your Personal Information as part of a customer list or similar transaction. We may have third party agents who perform functions on our behalf who may have access to your Personal Information as necessary to perform their functions. We may also use or disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or the Sites; (b) protect and defend our rights or property, the Sites or our users, and (c) act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our affiliates, agents, or the users of the Sites or the public.

We use the Non-Personal Information we gather to help us improve the Sites. We may use the information to perform statistical, marketing analyses and viewing patterns. We may disclose or share Non-Personal Information (or other information, other than Personal Information) in any other manner that we deem appropriate or necessary. We may disclose Non-Personal Information to third parties to help us determine how parts of the Sites are used so we can improve our Sites. We may retain information for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, and/or audit purposes.

How Can We Transfer Your Personal Information?
This Service is published in the United States and is targeted to United States citizens and our policies are directed at compliance with those laws. Your information collected through the Sites may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which NBBJ, its clients, affiliates or service providers maintain facilities. NBBJ, its clients, affiliates, or service providers may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located in the United States or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from US law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction. By using the Sites you consent to the transfer of information to the US or to any other country in which NBBJ, its clients, affiliates or service providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Policy. If you are uncertain whether this privacy policy conflicts with the applicable local privacy laws where you are located, you should not submit your Personal Information to NBBJ.

Assignment
We may change our ownership or corporate organization while providing the Service. We may also sell certain assets associated with the Service. As a result, please be aware that in such event we may transfer some or all of your information to a company acquiring all or part of our assets or to another company with which we have merged.
