This Privacy Notice is provided by Assala Energy UK Limited (“Assala”, “we” and “us”), and it applies to ways in which we interact with individuals, (“Data Subjects”) in connection with our business, including, without limitation:

  • directors, officers, employees and other representatives of Assala;
  • individuals applying for or enquiring about and employment with us;
  • individuals who consider or do invest with us and their representative agents with whom we interact during the normal course of business; and
  • visitors to our websites and users of any digital services we provide.

We respect the privacy of Data Subjects and will use appropriate technical and/or organizational measures to ensure appropriate security of the data.

This Privacy Notice describes how we collect, use, store, process, disclose and transfer information that we may collect from Data Subjects.  Please note that Assala may provide additional privacy notices or similar disclosures in respect of certain categories of Data Subjects (e.g., candidates for employment, certain former or existing employees associated with Assala, etc.), and certain geographies and jurisdictions.

Our Collection and Use of Data

What Data Do We Collect?

Personal information is information that reasonably can be used to identify you as an individual person or from which you are identifiable.  Assala may collect personal information such as your name, employer, identification numbers, nationalities, mailing and email addresses, and family status when you knowingly provide it to us.  If you contact us, we may keep a record of your correspondence, comments or personal information in a file specific to you.

How Do We Collect Data?

We collect data either directly from Data Subjects, e.g. when you voluntarily submit an employment application or send us an email or other written communication.  We can also collect data from third party sources, such as public records or a counterparty in possession of the data.

Additionally, our website uses cookies, and third party links may contain cookies.  As you interact with our website we may automatically collect and store technical data such as IP addresses for certain purposes such as general user statistics and security, however no personal data is collected on an individual level.

How Do We Use Personal Data?

We will use and/or disclose your personal information for a variety of reasonable and legitimate business purposes, including without limitation, complying with legal and regulatory obligations, performing contractual obligations with you, in connection with a transfer of business assets,   investigating disputes, conducting market research, processing and considering applications for employment, and where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and such interests are not overridden by your privacy rights.   We will process personal information lawfully, fairly and transparently, and take reasonable steps to ensure such information is accurate and current.

We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason which is compatible with the original purpose, in which case you can contact us for an explanation as to how the processing is compatible.  We will collect only that information relevant to the purposes explained to you and limited to the purposes.

We will not sell, share or disclose any of your personal information to anyone outside of Assala, its subsidiaries and affiliates, or companies directly engaged by Assala where confidentiality agreements are in place, unless we are required to do so by law.

International Data Transfers

Your personal information may be disclosed to members of Assala entities and affiliates, or third party vendors outside of the UK and the European Economic Area (“EEA”).  Your personal information may therefore be transferred to non-EEA countries.  Such transfers of personal information are governed by data transfer agreements which are in the form of the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission (a copy of which can be obtained from us via the contact details below).

How Long Do We Keep Your Data

In general, we will process and store your personal information for at least as long as it is necessary in order to fulfil our contractual, regulatory and statutory obligations.  Subject to those qualifications, our goal is to keep such data for no longer than necessary in relation to the purposes for which we collect and use your personal information.  If you have any specific questions in this respect, please feel free to contact us.

What are your rights in relation to the personal data we hold about you?

Access, rectification, erasure, restriction and portability

Subject to the conditions prescribed in applicable laws, UK and EEA residents have the right: (i) to access, rectify or request erasure of your personal data; (ii) to ask us to restrict processing of it; and (iii) to request that it is transferred to a third party.

Right to object

You also have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to processing of your personal data which is based on our or a third party’s legitimate interests.

You can exercise any of these rights by contacting us using the contact details provided below. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority about our use of your personal data in the EU Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679.

Additionally, in the circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis in law for doing so.

To exercise any of these rights, please contact us using the contact details set out under the “Contact Us” heading below.

 

Contact us

If you have any queries, questions or concerns about this Privacy Notice or our personal data handling practices, please contact us at Privacy@assalaenergy.com.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information or access your rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive, or in such cases, we may simply refuse to comply with your request.  We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data or exercise any of your other rights.  This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.  We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed our response.
