Privacy Policy

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Scott Civils & Groundworks’ legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described in this Privacy Policy depends on the Personal Information collected and the specific context in which the information is collected:

  • Scott Civils & Groundworks needs to perform a contract with you.
  • You have given Scott Civils & Groundworks permission to do so.
  • Processing your personal information is in Scott Civils & Groundworks legitimate interests.
  • Scott Civils & Groundworks needs to comply with the law.

Scott Civils & Groundworks will retain your personal information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our policies.

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), you have certain data protection rights. If you wish to be informed of what Personal Information we hold about you and if you want it to be removed from our systems, please contact us by email at info@scottcivilsgroundworks.co.uk.

In certain circumstances, you have the following data protection rights:

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “subject access request (SAR)”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object to where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request the restriction of processing your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.
