What Is Personal Data?

Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’. Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified.

The personal data that we use is set out below.

How we use your Personal Data

Under the GDPR we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data and will never disclose, share or sell your data without your consent, unless required to do so by law. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a contract with you because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it.

Your personal data may be used for one of the following purposes:

  • Collecting and storing your personal data as part of our legal obligation for business accounting and tax purposes.
  • Supplying our services to you. Your personal details are required to administer contractual relationships or to maintain legitimate business operations.
  • Personalising and tailoring our services for you after placing an order for services, enquiring about services or employment opportunities.
  • Communicating with you. This may include responding to emails or calls from you.

With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email/telephone/post with information, news, and offers on services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. Where you have consented to us providing you with promotional offers and marketing, you are free to withdraw such consent at any time.

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal data to third parties unless they have your permission or are required by law to do so. With your permission, the data you provide to us may be shared with relevant third parties who have demonstrated that they have a lawful and legitimate interest in the data for the purposes of administering the services which we provide.

How long we keep your Personal Data

We only retain your data for as long as is necessary and for the purposes specified in this notice. Where you have consented to us providing you with promotional offers and marketing, you are free to withdraw such consent at any time. We are required under UK tax law to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years after which time it will be destroyed.

Where you have consented to us using your details for direct marketing, we will keep such data until you notify us otherwise and withdraw your consent.

How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?

  • Your information is securely stored on an encrypted company cloud based server.
  • This means that your personal information may be processed on our behalf by a cloud provider and could be stored in different locations around the world.
  • Skeletal Consulting Engineers Limited have in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the data collected and to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure.

What Are My Rights?

Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

  1. The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data.
  2. The right to access the personal data we hold about you.
  3. The recipients to whom the personal data has/will be disclosed.
  4. How long we intend to store your personal data.
  5. If we did not collect the data directly from you, information about the source.
  6. The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
  7. The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete.
  8. The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
  9. The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we have.
  10. The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.

Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau. If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

If we receive a request for any of the above rights, we may ask you to verify your identity before acting on the relevant request; this is to ensure that your data is protected and kept secure.
