Your Personal Data
ChemEco UK Ltd is the ‘Controller’ of any personal data you provide to us.
If you choose to trust us with any of your personal data we will respect that trust and will do all we can to protect those data you share. We only collect basic personal data you provide such as your name, address, email or telephone number.
We also collect IP addresses. Computers and other devices that are connected to the internet are assigned unique identifiers known as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to identify and communicate with each other. IP Addresses are not usually considered to be ‘Personal Data’ and we use them for statistical purposes such as identifying how many visits we get from a particular country or how many people view the site on a mobile device.
We do not use IP addresses to try to identify individuals but we do use them for security purposes such as prevention of hacking, malware, fraud and data theft: for example if repeated attempts to ‘hack’ the site come from a particular IP address we will block it to protect our site, its users and their data.
What is a Data Processor?
A “data processor” isa person or organisation which processes personal data for the controller.

Why We Need Personal Data
We need to know your basic personal data in order to contact you if you wish to get in touch with us, for example if you email us. We use the data you provide to respond to any enquiries you have made and for marketing products and services of interest to you at that time. We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need in order to respond to your enquiries.
What We Do With It
We have a Data Protection regime in place to oversee the effective and secure processing of any personal data you share with us. All the personal data we process is processed by our staff in the UK.
We will never sell your information to third parties
We do not use any personal data for marketing purposes, and do not send you information about our services
Security precautions in place about data collected
When you give us personal information, we take steps to make sure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information is encrypted and protected. Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are sent normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
How long will we hold your data for?
Marketing: We will hold your data for a period of 5 years with a review every 3 years. You will have the opportunity to opt out or update or delete data at any point should you need to do so and details are set out in this policy as to how to do that.
Your rights are protected by the Data Protection Act 1998 and from 25th May 2018 by the ‘GDPR’ – the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679).
If at any point you believe any information we process about you is incorrect you can request to see this information and have it corrected or deleted.
If you wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you can contact our Data Protection Officer who will investigate the matter. If you are not satisfied with our response or believe we are processing your personal data not in accordance with the law you can complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
