When we Process Personal Data on behalf of our customers in the performance of a contract, the customer’s privacy policy applies to such Processing. NCR relies on its customers to provide NCR with Processing instructions that comply with those customers’ privacy obligations to you.

Use of Personal Data

NCR is committed to collecting Personal Data for specified and legitimate purposes, to limit its Processing to the stated purpose, and to not Process that data further in a manner incompatible with such purpose without your prior consent.

Lawful Bases for NCR’s Processing. NCR will use Personal Data where reasonably necessary to fulfill NCR’s business needs (as described below), including to:

  • Perform a contract or other business relationship with you or take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract;
  • Comply with a regulatory or legal obligation;
  • Protect your vital interests or that of another natural person;
  • Perform a task carried out in the public interest;
  • Carry out Processing with your consent, which you may withdraw at any time as described below;
  • Further a legitimate interest of NCR or a third party including, but not limited to
  • Researching and developing products, services, marketing or security procedures to improve their performance, resilience, reliability or efficiency;
  • Auditing related to transactions, short-term transient use in accordance with applicable law, debugging to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality and undertaking activities to verify or maintain the quality or safety of a service or device;
  • Detecting security incidents, protecting NCR personnel, property and assets from malicious, deceptive, fraudulent or illegal activity including threats or harm including to NCR’s information technology infrastructure, Intellectual property, or goodwill or reputation and prosecuting those responsible for that activity;
  • Ensuring compliance with relevant corporate policies and terms; or
  • Optimizing utilization of global corporate resources including the administration of business transactions, personnel and information technology systems.

Additional Business Purposes. In addition to the foregoing, NCR may Process Personal Data in the following specific purposes and circumstances:

  • Sensitive Data. With respect to Special Categories of Personal Data or Characteristics of Protected Classes, NCR may Process such information in a manner that is consistent with applicable law. 
  • Contract Data. As described above, NCR will use Contract Data consistent with applicable contractual obligations with its customers and applicable law.  NCR also may use Contract Data to facilitate compliance with regulatory and legal requirements.
  • Deidentified Data. For deidentified or aggregated data, which was formerly Personal Data, but which can no longer identify individuals, NCR may conduct research and development, statistical, trend or pattern analysis in order to continuously improve our products, services, processes, and security procedures.
  • Sales and Marketing. NCR may use your Personal Data for sales and marketing purposes, including contacting you for feedback in customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes, providing you with marketing literature on products and services, notifying you of events, and providing you with information about NCR. You may always change your privacy preferences as set forth below. From time to time, NCR may co-brand an offering or a communication with a third party, which may also collect your Personal Data.  In such cases, the use of your Personal Data by such third parties is covered by their respective privacy policies, and not this Privacy Policy. In cases where you choose to forward a page from this website to another individual (where such option is available), NCR may request certain Personal Data about that individual to complete your request, such as name and email address, but NCR will not make further use of such information. NCR’s use may include, but is not limited to, making sales calls, sending marketing communications, delivering or completing requested services or transactions, and tracking and analyzing a series of transactions.
  • Social Networking Tools. If NCR uses social networking widgets or tools to provide information to you, your information will be governed by the terms of use and the privacy policy for the applicable social networking platform.
  • Fulfilling Business Transactions. NCR may use your Personal Data to fulfil business transaction requests with you or your organization.  With respect to our customers, such requests may include, but are not limited to, maintaining or servicing accounts, verifying customer information, processing payments, providing advertising and marketing services, providing analytics services, undertaking internal research of technological development and demonstration, providing products or services including delivering notifications of product issues, fixes or updates, or contacting you in response to your questions, comments, or requests. With respect to our suppliers, such requests may include issuing purchase orders, receiving invoices, or providing other information such as forecasts.  If, in providing service or support (including support to assist you with the use of our websites or applications), we engage you telephonically or via electronic communications through tools such as email or online chat, we may monitor or record our interactions for purposes of quality assurance, training, or to document the details of the interaction or transaction.
  • Recruitment. If you seek employment with NCR, you may provide us with information about yourself, such as a resume.  We may utilize automated processing techniques for candidate applications for qualitative scoring or ranking to optimize the efficiency of our recruiting practices. In such cases, however, this Processing is overseen by our Human Resources personnel.  We may use this information throughout NCR to consider you for employment purposes and may keep your information on file for future consideration, to support NCR’s compliance with applicable legal requirements, and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy or in a separate notice that may be provided to you.


NCR is a global company with global operations, partners and suppliers. Where it is necessary for the efficient and effective performance of a business transaction or the fulfilment of one of the uses of Personal Data outlined above, NCR may need to transfer Personal Data from the country of collection to other countries, which may have data protection laws that are different from the laws where you live. Where such a transfer is made from one country or territory to another that is not deemed by the first exporting country (“Exporting Country”) to offer an adequate level of protection to the rights and freedoms of data subjects, NCR’s policy is to do so on the basis of contractual controls between the relevant group companies, partners, or suppliers designed to ensure that substantially the same level of protection is afforded to the Personal Data as in the Exporting Country.  NCR’s contractual safeguards are based on the ‘standard contractual clauses’ issued by the European Commission and other data protection regulatory authorities of the Exporting Country.

Disclosure of Personal Data to Third Parties

We may share your Personal Data (including Contract Data) within NCR. We also may share Personal Data with the following categories of third parties:

Service Providers. We may share Personal Data with third-party suppliers and service providers that help us Process Personal Data. Examples of categories of suppliers include:, IT vendors (including IT and related services, security product providers, email providers, and application providers), customer service providers, contingent workers, consultants, professional advisors, and other vendors to support the provision of our products and services. It is NCR’s practice to enter into contracts with our suppliers and service providers that require them to handle your information in a manner consistent with NCR policy and applicable law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Business Partners. We may provide Personal Data to business partners with whom we jointly offer products or services. In such cases, our business partner’s name may appear along with ours.

Bank Card Issuers. When you use one of our first-party ATMs, we will share the information captured with your card issuer or account provider for the purposes of validating the requested transaction.

Advertising Partners. Third parties do not advertise on NCR’s websites. NCR, however, may contract with third parties who collect information about your online activities over time and across different devices and websites (including NCR websites).  These third parties use cookies or web beacons across multiple websites, including NCR’s websites, to collect certain information about you (e.g., your IP address, mobile identifiers, page(s) visited, location, time of day) to provide you with targeted ads based on your interests. We engage with these third parties to help us deliver targeted advertisements about NCR on other websites you visit. If we need to facilitate these third parties to place cookies on your device to enable this functionality, we will do so in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, the third parties’ collection, use, and disclosures of your information is governed by their own privacy policies and statements. You have several choices to control the delivery of targeted ads to you by NCR, as described below.

Disclosure in the Event of Merger, Sale or Other Asset Transfer. From time to time, NCR may contemplate entering into various business development activities which may include the sale, purchase, merger, or reorganization of one or more of its businesses.  These business development activities may require the disclosure of Personal Data to the prospective or actual purchaser(s). When such disclosures are required, NCR will seek appropriate protections of your Personal Data.

Disclosures to Protect Us or Others. In certain circumstances, NCR may use or release Personal Data to third parties when disclosure is required by a legal authority to which we are subject, such as pursuant to a statute, regulation, judicial proceeding, court order, or subpoena. We also reserve our right to use or provide your Personal Data to third parties, including law enforcement, auditors, consultants, and government officials, to protect NCR’s rights, property, or safety, and/or the rights or property of our customers, business partners, suppliers, or other third parties. We may also disclosure Personal Data to enforce our policies or contracts; collect amounts owed to us; or assist with an investigation or prosecution of suspected or actual illegal activity

Your Individual Rights. In accordance with applicable law, we provide several mechanisms to allow you to:

  • Access Personal Data about you consistent with legal requirements. In addition, you may have the right in some cases to receive or have your electronic Personal Data transferred to another party. Where permitted by law, NCR may charge a reasonable fee if we are required to provide information about you. You may have the right to request information about public and private entities with which the NCR has shared data.

NCR will notify you before we begin to Process any information about you that was restricted just prior to Processing.

You may log into your account or use the contact mechanisms specified below to make your request, or, if you do not have an account, please visit our access request portal. We will process such requests in accordance with applicable laws. Where necessary to protect your privacy, NCR may take reasonable steps to verify your identity before acting on a request.

Consent Exceptions. Where you have previously provided your consent, you may withdrawal your consent at any time; however, doing so will not affect the lawfulness of NCR’s processing before your withdrawal of consent.  Once you withdraw consent, we will no longer Process your information for the purpose(s) to which you originally consented unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for further Processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms or if Processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

Denying a Request. In certain circumstances applicable law may permit NCR to deny such requests, for example, where an access, rectification, or erasure request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular where it is repetitive, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or where the rights of other persons would be violated. You may appeal a denial by contacting NCR in the manner set forth in the Contact Us section of this Privacy Policy.

Use of Automated Individual Decision Making Including Statistical Analysis and Profiling

NCR may use statistical and analytic techniques to support automated individual decisionmaking including profiling for the purpose of improving the quality, performance or efficiency of our products, services or processes or to screen applicants for employment, to facilitate compliance with law or policy, or to protect our information technology infrastructure.

We will retain and use your personal information as necessary to comply with our business and legal obligations, resolve disputes, protect our assets, and enforce our rights and agreements. We take steps to minimize access, use and retention of Personal Data to what is reasonably necessary.
