Information we share and who we share it with
There are certain circumstances where we may transfer your personal data to employees, contractors and to other third parties. Some examples of when your personal information is transferred to other third party organisations are as follows:
- We may also share your information with certain contractors or service providers and they may process your personal data for us. They are always required to meet our standards on processing information and security. The information we provide them, including your information, will only be provided in connection with the performance of their function;
- If we’re required to by law, or under any regulatory code or practice we follow, or if we are asked by any public or regulatory authority – for example the Police; OFGEM or BEIS – or to defend any legal claims.
- Your personal data may be shared if it is made anonymous and aggregated, as in such circumstances the information will cease to be personal data
Where your information will be held
When we share your information, your information may be transferred outside the European Economic Area. We will only transfer data to jurisdictions outside the scope of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) where the appropriate safeguards required by the GDPR are in place. We store our information on cloud servers located in the USA, or engage vendors which do not always have equivalent data protection laws to those applicable in Europe. The transfer of this information is therefore governed by a contract including standard contractual clauses (SCCs) approved by the European Commission. We will keep your information for as long as it is reasonably necessary. It will depend on factors such as whether you are working on our site or have attended one of our visitor centres recently. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
You may have certain rights in relation to your information including a right to access or to correct the information we hold on you. Some of these rights will only apply in certain circumstances however, such as the right to be forgotten or the right to request that we move your information to another company. They will generally not be available if there are outstanding contracts between us, if you continue to be employed as a contractor on one of our sites, if we required by law to keep the information or if the information is relevant to a legal dispute. If you would like to exercise, or discuss, any of these rights, please contact the Data Protection Officer.
You can remove consent, where you have provided it, at any time, as well as update any of your opt-in marketing preferences by contacting our Data Protection Officer at: Susie.email@example.com or EDF Renewables, United Kingdom, Atria One, 144 Morrison Street, Edinburgh, EH3 8EX.
