This section has been amended to include pre-employment employee records and documents will be kept for 1 year starting from the date a rejection letter sent to the unsuccessful applicant.

SAL Cargo Company offers a wide range of products and services, including Sea, Air and Land Cargo as well Ground Handling, Storage and Logistical Products and Services. References to SAL products and services in this statement include commercial products and services, websites, apps, and devices.

Your privacy is important to us. This privacy statement explains the personal information that SAL Cargo Company collects, how we process personal information, and for what purposes. Personal information is any information about an individual that identifies an individual, or by which the individual's identity can reasonably be ascertained.

SAL Cargo Company is committed to protecting your personal information when you are using SAL services. This Privacy and Cookies Policy relates to our use of any personal information we collect from you via the following online services:

  • Any SAL website that links to this Privacy and Cookies Policy.
  • Social media or official SAL content on other websites.
It also relates to our use of any personal information you provide to us by phone, SMS, email, in letters, other correspondence and in person.

In order to provide you with the full range of SAL services, we sometimes need to collect information about you. Whenever you provide such information, we are legally obliged to use your information in line with all applicable laws concerning the protection of personal information, including the Data Protection Act 2018 (these laws are referred to collectively in this Privacy and Cookies Policy as the “data protection laws”). No website can be completely secure; if you have any concerns that your SAL account could have been compromised e.g. someone could have discovered your password, please get in touch straight away.

SAL websites contain hyperlinks to websites owned and operated by third parties. These third-party websites have their own privacy policies, and are also likely to use cookies, and we therefore urge you to review them. They will govern the use of personal information you submit when visiting these websites, which may also be collected by cookies. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third-party websites and your use of such websites is at your own risk.

We collect data from you, through our interactions with you and through our products and services. You provide some of this data directly, and we get some of it by collecting data about your interactions, use, and experiences with our products and services. The data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with us and the choices you make, including your privacy settings and the products and features you use. We may also collect data about you from our group and third parties where you have provided consent for sharing.

Your data may be collected in relationship to your person as such or may be collected in the context of you representing an organization, such as a business or government. You have choices when it comes to the data you share. When we ask you to provide personal data, you can decline. However, please note that many of our products require some personal data to provide you with a service. If you choose not to provide data necessary to provide you with a product or feature, you may not be able to use that product or feature. Likewise, where we need to collect personal data by law or to enter into or carry out a contract with you, and you do not provide the data, we will not be able to enter into the contract; or if this relates to an existing product you’re using, we may have to suspend or cancel it. We will notify you if this is the case at the time.

From CCTV cameras

This Privacy Notice applies to all employees, workers and contractors of SAL Cargo Company all visitors to SAL’s premises, all other individuals who work at or visit premises. SAL collects or holds personal data as a result of the operation of its CCTV systems.
Where the lawful basis is our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, we have also indicated what those interests are.

How we obtain our CCTV personal data

Our CCTV monitors the Reception area, front carpark, rear carpark and 24 hours a day and this data is continuously recorded.

Camera locations are chosen to minimise the capture of images which are not relevant to the legitimate purposes of the monitoring.

Surveillance systems are not used to record sound.

Images are monitored by SAL’s authorised personnel during working hours only and can be accessed remotely at other times if required.

Live feeds from CCTV cameras are monitored only where this is reasonably necessary, for example to protect health and safety.

SAL will ensure that live feeds from cameras and recorded images are only viewed by approved members of its staff whose role requires them to have access to such data. This may include SAL’s HR staff involved in disciplinary or grievance matters.

No surveillance cameras will be placed in areas where there is an expectation of privacy (for example, in changing rooms) unless, in very exceptional circumstances, it is judged by SAL to be necessary to deal with very serious concerns.

SAL does not carry out covert monitoring or surveillance (that is, where you are unaware that the monitoring or surveillance is taking place) unless, in highly exceptional circumstances, there are reasonable grounds to suspect that criminal activity or extremely serious malpractice is taking place and, after suitable consideration, SAL reasonably believes there is no less intrusive way to tackle the issue.

Any covert monitoring or surveillance will be carried out for a limited and reasonable period of time consistent with the objectives of the monitoring or surveillance and will relate only to the specific suspected criminal activity or extremely serious malpractice.
 

The types of personal CCTV data we use and how we use them.

The types of personal data we collect and use, the purposes for which we use your personal data, and the lawful bases we rely on to allow us to use your personal data in that way are set out in the table below.
Where the lawful basis is our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, we have also indicated what those interests are.
We may have more than one lawful basis for using your personal data.

  To assist in the defence of any civil litigation, including employment tribunal proceedings (involving SAL or other occupants of or visitors to the building) The legitimate interests of SAL, other occupants of the building and visitors to the building in bringing or defending any civil litigation proceedings

Where images from our CCTV system are relevant to other occupants of the building or any individual (for instance if they show that their car has been broken into), SAL may share them with those other occupants/individuals if it considers that this is reasonably necessary for any of the purposes set out above.

SAL is not responsible for the use other occupants or individuals make of those images. You are advised to consult other occupants of the building about how they use your personal data.

SAL may allow law enforcement agencies to view or remove CCTV footage where this is required in the detection or prosecution of crime.

SAL will keep a record of all disclosures of CCTV footage

The date of the most recent revisions will appear on this page. If you do not agree to these changes, please do not continue to use SAL websites to submit personal information to SACC. If material changes are made to the Privacy and Cookies Policy, for instance affecting how we would like to use your personal information, we will notify you by placing a prominent notice on the website.

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this policy without your explicit consent. We will post any Privacy Policy changes on this page. What is the scope of our Privacy Policy?
This Privacy Policy only covers our website. Links within our website to external websites are not covered by this policy and remains the responsibility of the owners of these sites.
 

Application data cache

An application data cache is a data repository on a device. It can, for example, enable a web application to run without an Internet connection and improve the performance of the application by enabling faster loading of content.
 

Browser web storage

Browser web storage enables websites to store data in a browser on a device. When used in "local storage" mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions (for example, so that the data is retrievable even after the browser has been closed and reopened). One technology that facilitates web storage is HTML 5.
 

Device

A device is a computer that can be used to access SAL services. For example, a device could be a desktop, tablet or smartphone.
 

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer, tablet or mobile phone (all referred to here as a “device”) web browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your web browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows. Similar technologies are also often used within emails to understand whether the email has been read or if any links have been clicked. If you continue without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on the SAL website. However, you can change your cookie settings at any time. During the course of any visit to SAL website, the pages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.
 

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)

SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.
To be able to create an SSL connection a web server requires an SSL Certificate. When you choose to activate SSL on your web server you will be prompted to complete a number of questions about the identity of your website and your company. Your web server then creates two cryptographic keys - a Private Key and a Public Key.
The Public Key does not need to be secret and is placed into a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) - a data file also containing your details. You should then submit the CSR. During the SSL Certificate application process, the Certification Authority will validate your details and issue an SSL Certificate containing your details and allowing you to use SSL. Your web server will match your issued SSL Certificate to your Private Key. Your web server will then be able to establish an encrypted link between the website and your customer's web browser.
The complexities of the SSL protocol remain invisible to your customers. Instead their browsers provide them with a key indicator to let them know they are currently protected by an SSL encrypted session - the lock icon in the lower right-hand corner, clicking on the lock icon displays your SSL Certificate and the details about it. All SSL Certificates are issued to either companies or legally accountable individuals.
Typically, an SSL Certificate will contain your domain name, your company name, your address, your city, your state and your country. It will also contain the expiration date of the Certificate and details of the Certification Authority responsible for the issuance of the Certificate. When a browser connects to a secure site it will retrieve the site's SSL Certificate and check that it has not expired, it has been issued by a Certification Authority the browser trusts, and that it is being used by the website for which it has been issued. If it fails on any one of these checks the browser will display a warning to the end user letting them know that the site is not secured by SSL.
 

Affiliates

An affiliate is an entity that belongs to the SAL group of companies.
 

HTTP Referrer

An HTTP Referrer is information transmitted to a destination web page by a web browser, typically when you click a link to that web page. The HTTP Referrer contains the URL of the last web page that the browser visited.
 

IP address

Every device connected to the Internet is assigned a number known as an Internet protocol (IP) address. These numbers are usually assigned in geographic blocks. An IP address can often be used to identify the location from which a device is connecting to the Internet.
 

Non-personally identifiable information

This is information that is recorded about users so that it no longer reflects or references an individually identifiable user.
 

Personal information

This is information that you provide to us which personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or billing information, or other data which can be reasonably linked to such information by SACC, such as information we associate with your SAL Account.
 

Pixel tag

A pixel tag is a type of technology placed on a website or within the body of an email for the purpose of tracking activity on websites, or when emails are opened or accessed, and is often used in combination with cookies.
 

Sensitive Categories

An advertising category may be sensitive if it relates to topics such as race, religion, sexual orientation or health. When showing you tailored ads, we may associate an identifier from cookies or similar technologies with topics such as "Cooking and Recipes" or "Air Travel", but not with sensitive categories. We impose a similar policy on our advertisers.
 

Sensitive personal information

This is a particular category of personal information relating to confidential medical facts, racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs or sexuality.
 

Server logs

Like most websites, our servers automatically record the page requests made when you visit our sites. These “server logs” typically include your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
 

Unique device identifier

A unique device identifier (sometimes called a universally unique ID or UUID) is a string of characters that is incorporated into a device by its manufacturer and can be used to uniquely identify that device (for example an IMEI number of a mobile phone). Different device identifiers vary in how permanent they are, whether they can be reset by users and how they can be accessed. A given device may have several different unique device identifiers. Unique device identifiers can be used for various purposes, including security and fraud detection, syncing services such as a user’s email inbox, remembering the user’s preferences and providing relevant advertising.
 

Do Not Track (DNT) browser setting

DNT is a feature offered by some browsers which, when enabled, sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing is not tracked, such as by third party ad networks, social networks and analytic companies. The www.saudiaircargo.com website does not currently respond to DNT requests.
