Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy Statement

Your privacy is important to DWD LLP.

This Privacy Policy Statement provides information about the personal information that we will collect in connection with the Project and the ways in which we will use that personal information.

Personal information collection

We may collect and use the following kinds of personal information in connection with the Project:

  • information about your use of this website;
  • information that you provide for the purpose of registering with the website;
  • information from telephone conversations, emails, face-to-face discussions and meetings;
  • information from signing-in sheets, comments and feedback forms and surveys; and
  • any other information that you send to us.

Using personal information

We may use your personal information to:

  • administer this website;
  • enable your access to and use of the website services;
  • advise Eggborough Power Limited (‘EPL’) of who has accessed and used the website;
  • advise EPL of who has responded to consultation on the Project and their comments;
  • send you consultation communications and updates on the Project; and
  • comply with planning and environmental impact assessment legislation and policy (where relevant) and good practice.

We will only use information that has been provided voluntarily.  If we need to process your personal information for purposes other than those outlined above, we will inform you and obtain your consent if necessary.

Where we have obtained your consent for the processing of your personal information in a specific way or for a specific purpose, we will respect both your consent and, if you choose, the removal of your consent.  We undertake to make the necessary changes to our data processing systems as soon as reasonably practicable.

Where we disclose your personal information to our agents or sub-contractors for these purposes in connection with the Project, the agent or sub-contractor in question will be obligated to use that personal information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy Statement.

 

In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified above, we may disclose your personal information to the extent that it is required to do so by law, in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings, and in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.

We will not sell your personal information to any third party.

Retention of personal information

If you have provided us with your consent to process personal data for a specific purpose, then we will retain this data until consent is withdrawn by you or until it is no longer required in connection with the Project, whichever is the earlier.

We will retain all data not covered in the above paragraph either for the period required by law and/or by enforceable regulations, or for the period required for the proper and professional conduct of our business, whichever is the greater.

Security

Transmission of personal information via the internet is not always secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your data while being transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk.  Whilst we take what we consider to be appropriate technical and organisational precautions to prevent the unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification or unlawful destruction or accidental loss of personal information once it is under our control, we cannot guarantee the security of your data.

We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure servers.

Cross-border data transfers

Information that we collect may be stored and processed in and transferred between any of the countries in which we or EPL operate (including any outside the EEA) to enable the use of the information in accordance with this privacy policy. In addition, personal information that you submit for publication on this website will be published on the internet and may be available around the world.  By registering for and using this website, you agree to such cross-border transfers of your personal information.  However, while in our control, we always seek to ensure that your personal information receives the same level of protection as it would had it stayed within the EEA, including seeking to ensure that it is kept secure and used only in accordance with our instructions and for the agreed purpose(s).

Other websites

This website contains links to other websites.

We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any third party not involved in processing data on our behalf.

Your Rights

The Guide to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) provides you with certain rights in relation to your personal information, as summarised below.

  • Right to Access provides you with the right to request a copy of your personal data held by us.
  • Right to Rectification allows you to request the correction or completion of your personal data.
  • Right to Erasure allows you to request the deletion of your personal data, to the extent allowed by the GDPR.
  • Right to Restrict Processing provides you with the right in certain circumstances to request that your personal information be stored but not used – or in other words, suppressed.
  • Right to Data Portability allows you under certain circumstances and where legally applicable, to use your personal data for your own purposes across different services. To achieve this, you have the right to request that your personal data is returned to you or passed to a third party nominated by you, if this is technically feasible.
  • Right to Object provides for you to object to the processing of your personal information in some circumstances. For example, you have the absolute right to object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In other circumstances the right may be more limited.

In most cases there is no charge made for handling of enquiries related to the exercise of these rights and the request will be handled within one month.

If you wish to contact DWD LLP in relation to the exercise of any of the above rights, please contact us at privacy@dwdllp.com.  Information to confirm your identity may be requested.

If you are unhappy with the way that your enquiry is handled, you have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office or other relevant supervisory authority.
