BY USING THIS WEBSITE, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS EXPRESSED HERE
Purpose and scope of this policy
This policy ensures that personal information is dealt with correctly and securely and in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and other related legislation. It will apply to all personal data regardless of the way it is collected, used, recorded, stored, and destroyed, and irrespective of whether it is held in paper files or electronically.
All staff involved with the collection, processing, and disclosure of personal data will be aware of their duties and responsibilities and will adhere to this policy.
What is personal data?
Information about someone is defined as personal data when it can be used to identify a living individual and/or be used to influence decisions that affect the individual.
Our legal bases for processing personal data
Under the General Data Protection Regulations we rely on the following legal bases for processing your data:
Consent – we will ask for your consent for marketing to you via email or post. If you consent we can collect and process your data for this purpose.
Contract – we sometimes need to collect and process your personal data in order to fulfill a contract with you, for example, to provide training and certification. We will also collect and process your data on this basis if you’ve asked us to provide a quote. Legal – we are obliged to process some personal data to comply with the law. On booking a course with us, we must gather and retain some personal data for a set period of time to comply with the regulations and training accreditation standards.
Legitimate interests – we collect and process some personal data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way you would reasonably expect as part of running our business; for example, to analyze information on our customers in order to provide new products or services.
Types and uses of personal information If you use this website, personally identifiable information about you may be collected and processed by Benel Energy Resources employees. In general, we only collect such information (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and type of business) when you knowingly provide it to us.
In nearly all cases this data may be collected or processed by, and transferred to, Benel Energy Resources facilities in the United States and in other countries where Benel Energy Resources does business; the data is then subject to the legal systems of those countries. By using this website, you unambiguously consent to any collection, processing, transfer, or use of any personal data. If you do not consent to any collection, processing, transfer, or use of such information, please discontinue use of this website.
Who we share your data with
Sometimes we need to share your personal data with trusted third parties. In these instances, your data will only be used for the exact purpose we specify, will be transferred and stored securely, and will be deleted or rendered anonymous if we stop working with that third party.
Examples of the third parties with whom we share data are:
• Payment-processing services
• Delivery couriers and postal services
• Email marketing service providers
• Certification bodies, such as IWCF and IADC
This list is not exhaustive and may change from time to time in line with our business processes. Please be assured that we will only ever share your information with trusted parties who adhere to GDPR and the correct standards of security.
How long do we keep your data?
We will only keep your data for as long as it’s needed. After that, we’ll delete it or destroy it; if you book a course with us, we’ll keep your data for a minimum of four years to comply with certification body stipulations. You can request that some of this be deleted sooner.
