Data Protection Act 1998
The Data Protection Act 1998 establishes rights for individuals who disclose their personal information - where personal information is widely defined - to any organisation for any purposes involving processing of that information. Any organisation which processes information about living individuals is a data controller for the purposes of the Act; that is a person who determines the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal data are, or are to be, processed. A data controller is required by the Act to ensure that the data subject has, is provided with, or has made readily available to him certain specified information, including the data controller's identity, the identity of any other person to whom he may disclose the information, and the purpose or purposes for which the data are intended to be processed.
For our services that require payment (such as certain products and subscriptions), credit card information (such as account name, number and expiration date), is used for our or our agent's billing purposes only, and is not otherwise shared: this information is encrypted and used only by our processing agent SecPay and is neither held nor seen by UKLPG.
We do not share personally identifiable information with other companies apart from those acting as our agents in providing our product(s)/service(s), and which agree to use it only for that purpose and to keep the information secure and confidential.
We will also disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena or other legal obligation, in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property.
The data controller in relation to this web site is UKLPG Ltd. The purposes for which the data are intended to be processed are as follows:
1. Comments, questions and feedback
If you send an enquiry by e-mail to either a specific contact or a general enquiry address identified on the website, we will only use your personal details obtained from your enquiry to respond to your query or improve the site. In some instances, it may not be possible for UKLPG to provide the information requested directly. In such circumstances we may pass your enquiry a member of the Association.
2. Site usage information
If you provide feedback on our website we will only use it to develop and improve the site. We will keep the actual feedback for six months after which it will be deleted but analysis of feedback may be kept.
Your Rights as a Data Subject
As a data subject, you have various rights under the Act, including a right of access to any personal data being held about you by UKLPG Ltd as data controller. UKLPG will supply you with details of any personal data we are holding about you if you submit a request ("subject access request") to firstname.lastname@example.org
