United Oil & Gas plc

Privacy Policy

 

United Oil and Gas PLC (“United” or “Company”) recognises and respects the importance of the privacy of our visitors of our websites and users of online systems. The purpose of this statement is to clearly detail how the Company processes that data, how we respect your privacy and how you may exercise your right to receive a copy of that data. At all times, we treat your data in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1988 and EU-wide regulations.

 

This policy accounts for the personal data and cookies, etc, used by our websites and online systems. If you do not agree with the terms herein, please do not use this website or online systems and delete the cookies placed by the website.

 

Note that “personal data” in the context of the GDPR regulation and the Data Protection Act just means data that can be identified with a particular individual (we can identify that the data relates to you through your name and address). It does not mean sensitive data – we do not obtain or hold sensitive information on you, just the information referred to above which is necessary to supply you with information we are required to send you in the normal operations of business or information you have opted to receive.

 

We do not sell or make available any of your details to others such as direct-mail or other marketing companies. We only disclose your information to, for example, a shareholding service who may be subcontracted to print and post documents to you. These third-party companies may not disclose or share your details.

 

1.    Personal data

We collect and process personal data for the following purposes and based on our legitimate interest and/or for fulfilment of a contract, as applicable:

  • Provision of services according to agreed terms
  • To accommodate your requests and inquiries for services or information
  • Provision of circulars or notifications, including press releases, offered by United
  • The purposes listed in the below cookie section

 

As a group, United may transfer personal data collected on an aggregated or individual level to data processors outside of the Company for storage and service purposes. Personal data will not be disclosed to anyone outside United unless permitted or required under applicable legislation.

We delete or anonymise your personal data when it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected and subsequently processed.

Our websites and online services are intended for a general audience, and United does not knowingly collect personal data about any person under the age of 18 years of age.

 

If you have submitted personal data to us, e.g. when registering for a news update or a service, you enjoy certain rights to gain access to the data processed about you according to applicable regulations. You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data, to rectify the data processed, if relevant, and the right to be forgotten if there is no longer a statutory obligation to retain your data.

 

If you wish to exercise your right to access your personal data, to object to it being processed or to rectify processed data, please contact dataprivacy@uogplc.com or send a letter to United Oil and Gas PLC, 9 Upper Pembroke St, Dublin, D02 KR38, Ireland, marked for the attention of Data Privacy.

 

In case of any abuse that you become aware of, such as being contacted or sent information from someone else apart from us but purporting to have been given your contact details from us, or for clarification and queries on any of the issues discussed in this document, please feel free to send the correspondence to our business address or by email to dataprotection@uogplc.com.

 

United may, but currently does not, record telephone conversations made to them for the purposes of safety, staff training, quality control or confirming details of your conversation. This information is treated in a strictly confidential manner.

 

We have implemented appropriate organisational and technical security measures to protect your personal data. We store personal data on servers with limited access located in secured facilities and our security measures are evaluated on an ongoing basis. The servers are protected by anti-virus software and firewalls, among other measures.
