Oikos Storage Limited (registered office: Hole Haven Wharf, Haven Road, Canvey Island, Essex, SS8 0NR, company number 00315280), is the entity that determines how and why your personal data is processed.
In accordance with the data protection legislation, Oikos is a controller and this means that we are legally responsible for the personal data we collect and hold about you.
Personal data is information that relates to you or allows us to identify you. As part of the DCO Project, we may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you. This may include:
Oikos does not intend to collect any special categories of personal data relating to you (for example, information revealing health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs or information concerning your sex life or sexual orientation or any criminal convictions data).
We only use your personal data when the law allows us to do so. Most commonly, we will use your personal data to process your feedback and comments in relation to the DCO Project. We will also share your personal data with select third parties engaged by us who alone, or together with us, will prepare technical and other reports on our behalf for use in relation to the DCO Project.
We may collect personal data from you directly. Alternatively, we may collect personal data about you via third parties, and in particular our third party media consultants for the DCO Project, Copper Consultancy.
Data protection legislation requires that we meet certain conditions before we can use your personal data in the manner described in this notice, including having a “lawful basis” for the processing. When we use your personal data, we will rely on one or more of the following legal bases:
We do not generally process your personal data based on your consent (as we can usually rely on another legal basis). Where we do process your personal data based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. To withdraw your consent please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes outlined in section 4:
(together, our ‘Third Party Advisors’).
In each case where we share your information with one of the Third Party Advisors, the Third Party Advisors will be a controller of your personal data. Each Third Party Advisor shall have the same obligations with regard to your personal data as Oikos.
Further information about how the Third Party Advisors use your personal data and your rights in respect of such usage, may be found on each of the Third Party Advisors’ websites.
Your personal data may also be shared with other third party consultants and experts who are appointed by Oikos to support the Third Party Advisors with the DCO Project. These third party consultants and experts will be controllers of your personal data and shall have the same obligations with regard to your personal data as Oikos.
The nature of our business means that your personal data may well be transferred across national boundaries, including, potentially, to countries that do not require organisations by law to look after your personal data in the way in which you have come to expect in your own country.
Where we transfer your personal data across national boundaries, we will protect your personal data by ensuring that those transfers are made in compliance with all relevant data protection laws. Generally, this means where we transfer your personal data to a third party that is located in a country which does not have adequate privacy protection, we will put in place a contract with the third party that includes the standard international data transfer contractual terms approved by the European Commission.
If you would like further details of how your personal data is protected when transferred from one country to another then please email us at email@example.com
How long Oikos will hold your personal data for will vary and will be determined by the following criteria:
We take security issues seriously and we implement appropriate steps to help maintain the security of our information systems and processes and prevent accidental destruction, loss or unauthorised disclosure of the personal data we process.
We do not use profiling (where an electronic system uses personal data to try and predict something about you) or automated decision making (where an electronic system uses personal data to make a decision about you without human intervention).
In all the above cases in which Oikos collects, uses or stores your personal data, you may exercise the following rights by contacting Oikos at the address given below.
These rights include:
If you think that any of your rights have been infringed by Oikos, you have the right to lodge a formal complaint with the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Details of the ICO can be found at https://ico.org.uk.
