If you choose to withdraw your consent, we may keep a ‘suppression list’ containing your details so we know you have unsubscribed.

To whom might we disclose your personal data and where does it go?

We may pass your personal data to other IGas Group subsidiaries. We also use the services of third-party service providers to offer technical support. Any third-party provider we appoint must act in accordance with our written instructions when processing your personal data and must protect your personal data in line with the contractually required security measures. Where we store or transfer your personal data to a third-party provider based outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we take steps to ensure your personal data is adequately protected and note that our data processors are contractually obliged to seek our written consent prior to transferring personal data outside of the EEA. We do not transfer your personal data to IGas Group subsidiaries outside of the EEA.

We have the right to disclose your personal data as required by law, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, request from a regulator or any other legal process served on the IGas Group. If there is a takeover, sale or purchase of our business, we may disclose your personal data to the new (or prospective) owner of the business.

Your rights, complaints and how to contact us

At any point while we are in possession of or processing your personal data, you, the data subject, have the following rights:

  • Right of access – you have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you (see further below).
  • Right of rectification – you have a right to request that we correct data that we hold about you that is inaccurate or incomplete.
  • Right to request erasure – you can ask for the data we hold about you to be erased from our records where there is no good reason for us to continue processing it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Right to restriction of processing – you have the right to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Right of portability – you have the right to have the data we hold about you transferred to another party.
  • Right to object – you have the right to object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Right to object to automated processing, including profiling – you also have the right not to be subject to a decision evaluating your personal aspects that is based solely on automated processing, including profiling, and which produces legal effects concerning or significantly affecting you.
  • Right to judicial review – in the event that we refuse your request under rights of access, we will provide you with a reason as to why. You have the right to complain as outlined below.

All of the above requests will be forwarded on should there be a third party involved (as outlined in this notice) in the processing of your personal data.

If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact the Data Protection Officer in writing, using data.compliance@igasplc.com.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

Complaints

You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)

https://ico.org.uk/concerns/handling, the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues. However, please consider contacting our Data Protection Officer via mailto:data.compliance@igasplc.com, in the first instance.
