MEPC collects, uses and is responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.
The personal information we collect and use
Information collected by us
In the course of us providing products and services to you, we may collect the personal information that you provide. This information may consist of:
Name, business name, address, phone number, email address.
IP addresses and cookies
How we use your personal information
We use this information in a number of ways:
So we can offer you services or so you can receive services from us.
To occasionally contact you should we have any offers or information related to the services you purchased with us previously or have expressed interest in receiving.
Who we share your personal information with
We only share your personal information with reputable third parties to help us provide our services to you and who take the security of your data seriously. Some of those third party recipients may be based outside the European Economic Area — for further information including how we safeguard your personal data when this occurs, see below ‘Transfer of your information out of the EEA’.
We will share personal information with law enforcement or other authorities if required by applicable law.
How long your personal information will be kept
We will hold your personal information for no longer than necessary but in any event no longer than 6 years following your first contact with us (unless we are required to hold it for longer to comply with a legal requirement or for our legitimate business purposes).
Reasons we can collect and use your personal information
We rely on the following lawful bases: our legitimate interests, and consent from you (if you submit your personal information to us on a contact form on our website) as the legal grounds for collecting and using your personal data. Our legitimate interests are providing or offering our products or services to you.
Transfer of your information out of the EEA
We may transfer your personal information to the US for storage purposes only. Any transfer of your personal information will be to an organisation that offers adequate protection in accordance with the transfer requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and which safeguards your privacy rights in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal information.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation you have a number of important rights free of charge. In summary, those include rights to:
- access to your personal information and to certain other supplementary information that this Privacy Notice is already designed to address
- require us to correct any mistakes in your information which we hold
- require the erasure of personal information concerning you in certain situations
- receive the personal information concerning you which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to a third party in certain situations
- object at any time to processing of personal information concerning you for direct marketing
- object to decisions being taken by automated means which produce legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affect you
- object in certain other situations to our continued processing of your personal information
- otherwise restrict our processing of your personal information in certain circumstances
For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on individuals rights under the General Data Protection Regulation.
If you would like to exercise any of those rights, please:
- email, call or write to us (see ‘How to contact us’ below)
- let us have enough information to identify you e.g. name and work email address
- let us have proof of your identity and address (a copy of your driving licence or passport and a recent utility or credit card bill), and
- let us know the information to which your request relates
Your privacy is of the upmost importance to us and we will never release your details to third party organisations for the purpose of marketing or communications without your prior agreement.
If you are an existing customer or have expressed interest in our services, we will occasionally contact you via email or mail about about MEPC, Wellington Place and associated third parties at Wellington Place (for a list of third parties click here) that we believe would be of interest and benefit to you. If you would prefer not to receive this information you can OPT OUT at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the email. To opt out of postal mailing contact us at email@example.com.
Keeping your personal information secure
We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
We use the latest Secure Server Technology to ensure that all data submitted through our website is protected to the highest standards.
How to complain
We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.
The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the European Union (or European Economic Area) state where you work, normally live or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner who may be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ or telephone: 0303 123 1113.
