How we collect information

We collect personal information when you:

  • Contact us by phone, email, post, or text message

  • Register online, request information, or subscribe via our website

 

In addition, information is automatically captured each time you visit our website. We use cookies and collect IP addresses (that can uniquely identify a specific computer or network device on the internet) to track visitors on our website.

 

What we do with this information

We use the personal information you provide to answer your requests for information, to process your requests and applications for our services, and to make improvements to our website and practices.

 

What are my rights?

Your legal rights, and our responsibilities as data controller, depend on the legal basis used to process your personal data.

 

If you register for or express interest in one of our programmes, your personal data will be processed in the exercise of official duty vested in the data controller. In this case, answering your requests, processing your application, making improvements to our website, and conducting data analytics to improve our recruiting strategy and process.

 

You may still object to direct marketing.

 

Regardless of your level of involvement and the legal basis used to process your personal information, you have a right to be informed about how your information will be used. You also have a right to access your personal data, to request the correction of any inaccuracies, and to be told about the use of any automated decision making and profiling.

 

Who will have access to your information

Your personal information may be handled by the companies that we use as data processors to provide key services or process your application onto our programmes.

 

These companies must comply strictly with our privacy policies that prohibit the use of personal data for their own business purposes.

 

In some circumstances we will have to share your data with third parties, including third party service providers. We require third parties to respect the security of your data and to treat it in accordance with the law. In some circumstances we may transfer your personal information outside of the UK. If we need to do this, you can expect a similar level of protection of your personal information.

 

If you apply to one of our programmes, your personal information may be shared with our delivery partners for the purpose of providing your services as part of our programmes.

 

If you agree to the use of cookies on this website, the information contained in targeting cookies may be shared with other websites so that the advertising displayed on these sites is more relevant to you. No personal data will be shared with other websites - only IP addresses, which can identify a specific computer or network device.

 

How long do we keep your information?

Your information will be held on our systems for as long as it is necessary to answer your requests and provide the agreed-upon services from Net Zero Nation.

 

If you register an interest but do not join one of our programmes, we will keep your personal data for no longer than 3 years. This period starts on the date that you last made contact with Net Zero Nation, and resets each time you log in to our services, or contact us to request further information.

 

Any special category personal data will be removed after 1 year of inactivity, unless specified differently in the data retention policy at the time of request. This period starts on the data that you last made contact with Net Zero Nation, and resets each time you log in to our services, or contact us to request further information.

 

The ICO defines special category data to be personal data that requires more protection because it is sensitive.

 

Please note that we do not routinely collect or handle sensitive or special category data as part of our services.

 

At the end of this period we will remove your personal information from our systems or treat the data to remove any personal identifiers that could be used to identify you as an individual.

 

What information do we hold about you?

You can request a report detailing the personal information that we hold about you. You can also ask us to rectify your personal data if it is inaccurate.

 

What to do if you don’t want us to contact you in the future

You can ask us not to contact you again.

 

What to do if you object to processing and want us to remove your personal data

Contact us by email or post at the addresses below and ask us to delete your details from our records.

 

You will need to tell us what personal data you want us to remove.
