Privacy policy

We are committed to using and managing personal information responsibly and ethically. We will act with integrity and protect the personal and confidential information of others. We will comply with the data protection laws that apply in the countries in which we operate.

In particular, we have implemented a data protection governance framework that applies across our companies in the European Economic Area (EEA), to ensure that as far as possible, we comply with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation.  This includes standard procedures for handling personal information, privacy notices, data processor agreements, intra-group data transfer security and processing arrangements, a data inventory containing records of how we process data and the provision of training to our employees.

2. Privacy notices in the EEA

In most circumstances, we will give you a specific privacy notice explaining how we use your personal information.

The standard forms for these are set out below.

However, there are occasions where it is not appropriate to provide a full privacy notice to you, and in these circumstances, the relevant standard privacy notice below should give you information that would generally apply to you.

Please contact the Company Secretary if you have any queries about how we use your data.
