Privacy Notice

 

EDF Energy Renewables Limited is committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information.

We are carrying out a virtual consultation for our Camilty Wind Farm project. As part of this we are seeking to re-engage with the local community, understand the local community’s views and seek feedback on the re-design (and other aspects) of the project via an online voluntary questionnaire and a call back request form. In order to do this we may need to use your personal information. This privacy notice explains how we will do that.

EDF Energy Renewables Limited (“we” or “us”) is a “data controller”. This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. We are required under data protection legislation to notify you of the information contained in this privacy notice. EDF Energy Renewables Limited is a company based in the United Kingdom. We may update this notice at any time but if we change anything important about it (e.g. the information we collect, how we use it or why) we will highlight those changes to you as soon as reasonably practical.

We are working with a company called RPS Consulting Services Ltd (“RPS”) to assist us with the collection and processing of your personal data. RPS is a “data processor”. This means that RPS acts on behalf of, and only on the instructions of, us as the relevant “data controller” for the purposes of this processing of your personal information.

We will collect your personal data directly from you, on a voluntary basis, via an online voluntary questionnaire and a call back request form. This privacy notice explains how we use the personal data collected. The lawful basis for this is legitimate interests (community feedback and engagement on the project is vital to inform project development).

We collect personal identification information (your name, contact number, address, email address). We are collecting this data for the following purposes:

· as part of the planning application for the re-design of Camilty Wind Farm we need to consult with the public and our virtual consultation event and questionnaire will highlight our engagement and visibility in the local area;

· to help us respond to comments and questions and inform project planning & development decisions;

· if approved the Wind Farm will benefit the local area through community benefit funds.

We securely store your data at our locations in the UK and take measures to secure your personal data, including encryption systems on laptops, firewalls and antivirus software.
