We may collect Data from you – via forms you complete (e.g. name, business name and contact details) or automatically (e.g. web browser type, IP address and a list of URLs starting with a referring site, your activity on this Website, and the site you exit to).

Our use of Data

For purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, Green Finch Environmental Consulting Limited is the “data controller”.

We will use contact details submitted by you to contact you in response to any query posted via this website. If you give us consent to do so, we will add your details to our newsletter list and send occasional emails that we think may be of interest.

If you are a client then we will use your details as part of the normal operation of the business.

We may, for some services, use a third party to offer advice or undertake work on our behalf. If this is the case then we may transfer relevant information to them. We will ensure that they have appropriate privacy and security procedures in place to safeguard this information.

Controlling use of your Data

Wherever you are required to submit Data, you will be given options to restrict our use of that Data. This may include the following: use of Data for direct marketing purposes; and sharing Data with third parties.

Accessing your own Data

You have the right to ask for a copy of any of your personal Data held by Green Finch Environmental Consulting Limited (if we hold any).

Security

Data security is of great importance to us and to protect your Data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure Data collected via this Website. If password access is required for certain parts of the Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We endeavour to do our best to protect your personal Data. However, transmission of information over the internet is not entirely secure and is done at your own risk. We cannot ensure the security of your Data transmitted to the Website.

We will keep Data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil any contractual obligations to you and any legal or professional obligations on us. We may retain Data if we believe that you may become or return as a client in the near future.

Transfers outside the European Economic Area

We have chosen a UK-based server (that runs on 100% renewable energy) for our website. We also use Dropbox, Hubspot and Mailchimp to help run the business and so some data may be processed, stored in and transferred to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). These countries may not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the EEA. If we transfer Data outside the EEA in this way, we will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this privacy policy. You expressly agree to such transfers of Data. Click on the company names above to see details of their security / GDPR arrangements.

Third party websites and services

We use mailchimp to manage our newsletter, including processing contact details you submit via the website (or otherwise provide). We use hubspot to manage client details that are given to us via the website (or other means).

We may also make use of other third-party services to process data.

We are happy that these organisations will process your information in accordance with data protection laws. For further details see the mailchimp and hubspot websites.

Links to other websites

This Website may provide links to other websites. We choose which websites we link to with care but any links cannot be taken as endorsements. We have no control over such websites and are not responsible for the content or policies of these websites.
