Pellys Transport & Regulatory Services Limited’s Privacy Policy

Who are “We”?

This Policy

The privacy and security of the personal information that we hold is very important to us.  This privacy policy explains how and why we obtain, use and store your personal data and we ask you to read this policy carefully to make sure that you stay informed and so that you can be confident about giving us your information.

If you have any questions about this policy or about the data that we hold (or may hold) for you, please get in touch with us.

We may need to change this Policy

If we need to update this policy (for example because a change in the law requires us to do so) we will publish the new version on our website, so we recommend that you check our website periodically to see if we have needed to make any changes that might affect you.

Does this Policy apply to You?

This policy applies to you if we obtain your personal data.  This may occur if you contact us, if you visit us, if you work with us or for us, or if you ask us to advise or represent you.

Our Promise to You.

We will never sell your personal data and we will only share it with people or organisations that we work with when it is necessary.  In common with many businesses we have relationships with third parties who help us with our work: accountants, IT support professionals and independent auditors (for example when we are processing a booking for you or if you come to work for us).

No privacy and security system can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure at all times, but we have put in place procedures and systems designed to keep your personal data secure.

Who should you contact about this Policy or your personal data?

If you have any questions in relation to this privacy policy or how we use your personal data you should write to us at Pellys Transport & Regulatory Services Limited, No.4 The Exchange, 9 Station Road, Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex, CM24 8UT.  Please address your letter for the attention of our Managing Director.

What Personal Data do we Collect?

Your personal data (by which we mean information relating to you, for example, your name, address, date of birth, national insurance number, telephone number, and/or your email address) may be collected and used by us.  We ask that you let us know if ever any of the personal data that you provide to us changes or if you become aware that data that we may hold fo you is inaccurate.

We collect personal data in connection with specific activities concerning the work that we do with you or for you, and/or work which you do for us.

The personal data that you provide to us may include identification information, and if you visit us you may be recorded on our CCTV system.

Personal Data Provided by You

The data that you may provide to us or which we may obtain in the course of working with you or for you may include your personal details, financial information and/or medical information.

We may Automatically collect the Following Information:

When you make contact with us including if you make a payment to us using the Practice’s website, our systems may collect personal data from you and about you.

Personal Data created by your Involvement with us

Your activities and involvement with us may result in personal data being created, used or stored by us.

Information we Generate

As part of our business we make use of data that we obtain and store, including identifying services that we offer which may be of interest to you.

Information from Third Parties

We do not buy anonymous external data from third parties (for example census data, or data held by credit reference agencies).

Sensitive Personal Data

At times we will collect sensitive personal data from you.  This is most likely to arise if you share this information with us, for example as part of your employment with us or if you ask us to advise and represent you.  Sensitive personal data could include confidential financial and/or medical information about you.

Children’s Personal Data

We do not employ anyone under the age of 18 years and we do not act directly for anyone under the age of 18.  There are circumstances in which we might do legal work that would be for for the benefit of someone under the age of 18 and in those circumstances it may be that we would obtain, use and/or store such data.

Marketing to Young People

We will not send marketing emails, letters or make calls to people under the age of 17.  We will not send any marketing communications to young people aged between 13 and 17 and we will not profile anyone under the age of 18.

How We Use your Personal Data and Why we are Allowed to Do So

We will only hold or use your personal data as permitted by law with reference to the obligations that may apply if we act as a data controller or data processor.  When you work with us or for us and we have a contract with you it may be necessary for us to hold your personal information to enable us to work with you and to allow us to discharge our contractual obligations.

If you instruct us to advise or represent you, then we will carry out this work under our Terms and Conditions of Business, which will mean that there is a contract in place.

We may have a legitimate interest in making contact with you, for example if we think we may be able to help you when we have worked with you or for you in the past, or if you have a particular issue that relates to the work that we do in the Practice.

When you make contact with us and/or when we do work for you it may be legally necessary to obtain, use or store your personal data (for example if we are asked by the police, or any other regulatory or government authority investigating suspected illegal activities, we may need to provide your personal data).

Sometimes we will need to share your data with third parties (who should also have their own Privacy Policies).  For example, there may be occasions when we are the subject of external audits, or because our accountants require access to our financial records, or because we require assistance to host and operate our data systems (including our computer systems, telephones, website and email facilities).  Wherever we can we will limit our use of your data and the access that any third party has to it.

Marketing Communications

Your privacy is important to us, so we will always seek to keep your details secure.

If you are happy for us to get in touch with you to provide you with details of the services that we offer which may be of interest to you, then, with your consent we may get in touch with you form time to time.

If you agree to receive marketing information from us you can change your mind at any time thereafter.

However, if you tell us you do not want to receive marketing communications, then you may not hear about services that we offer which may be of interest to you.  The choice is yours and we will respect your preferences.
