We uphold the relevant data protection principles and process all personally identifiable information about you (“personal data”) in accordance with the GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS 2018, referred to as GDPR 2018 and other relevant legislation. This privacy policy explains what information we may collect about you when you visit our website and how we may use it.

The information we collect

It is possible to use our website without providing any personal data. However, AQR Safe Water may automatically collect certain information about you when you use our website, including using ‘cookies’ (see below), such as the IP address of your computer and the dates and times of your visits.

In some areas of our website AQR Safe Water may ask you for personal data, such as your name, address and email details, to enable us to make your site visit a more rewarding experience for you and/or to contact you after your visit. Examples of this might be where you complete an online contact form, download a file, ask for information about a job vacancy, or subscribe to an e-bulletin.

In order to provide richer, more personalised services, it may be necessary for us to collect and process additional personal data. We’ll state clearly if this is the case giving clear opt-out options should you change your mind at any later date, in line with GDPR requirements and best practice.

How we may use this information

Personal data which we collect about you via our website is held on and processed by computers situated at AQR Safe Water. We will retain this data for a reasonable period or for as long as the law requires.

No one will disclose any of your personal data collected via our website to any third party, other than in circumstances set out in this privacy policy and/or where you have given us permission to do so, unless we are required to do so by law.

We may use personal data collected from you via our website to manage and monitor use of our website. Otherwise, we will only use this personal data for the purposes for which it was collected, unless you have given us permission to use it for other stated purposes. For example, if you supply us with your name and address so we can send you further information in the future.

There may be circumstances in which AQR Safe Water will ask you to agree to us disclosing your personal data to certain third parties, or transferring it outside the United Kingdom. However, we will not do this without your permission. In all circumstances, we will do our best to ensure that appropriate arrangements are in place to protect your privacy.

If at any time you want to withdraw any permission you have given us to provide you with services, or to use your personal data in any other way, please inform us by email. To unsubscribe, please email us using the contact form on this website.

Cookies

When you visit our website AQR Safe Water may send ’cookies’ to the browser on your computer, even if you do not provide us with any personal data. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.

Cookies are useful as they enable us to recognise you (by a unique number allocated to you) when you return to our website and so to personalise your return by, for example, customising web pages based on which areas of the website were previously of interest to you. If you have previously provided us with personal data, then cookies may enable us automatically to fill in your name and other information when, for example, you complete an online form.

Cookies also enable us to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics which help us to understand how our website is used and how we may improve it. It is not possible for cookies to read personal information on your computer and/or to find out any personal information about you.

We use analytic information to help us make our website more focused and better for our website visitors. You may, however, opt out of Google Analytics tracking if you prefer.

Under the GDPR you are entitled to be told if AQR Safe Water holds any personal data about you. If we do hold any personal data about you, you are entitled to be given a description of the data, to be told for what purposes the data are processed, and the people (or classes of people) to whom the data may have been disclosed. A request for a copy of information held about you is called a “Subject Access Request”. To make a subject access request, please contact our Data Protection Officer. Please note that we are entitled to, and do, charge a fee of £10 for providing this information.

Security

Our website and our computer systems have security measures in place with the aim of protecting the loss, misuse or alteration of personal data held by us. All data breaches will be reported in line with GDPR protocols
