Sharing and disclosure of your personal data

We do not routinely share your personal information with Third Parties. We may share your personal information with any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

We and any member of our group may share your personal information with contracted Third Parties, who would be contracted specifically to deliver services in relation to Rampion 2. These parties would be required under contract to treat your personal information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

We use a Third Party Stakeholder Management System provider to store and analyse your personal information.

However, we may disclose your personal information when required for:

  • If Rampion 2 or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its stakeholders will be one of the transferred assets.

Special Category Personal Data

The GDPR defines special category 0f personal data as personal data that reveals:

  • racial or ethnic origin;
  • political opinions;
  • religious or philosophical beliefs;
  • trade union membership;
  • genetic data;
  • and biometric data(where used for identification purposes);
  • data concerning health;
  • data concerning a person’s sex life; and

data concerning a person’s sexual orientation.

Generally, we do not collect special category personal data  about you unless required or permitted by law. In instances where we do, the request will be optional and we will provide a clear and specific reason to do so. One such reason is to enable us to check that a representative sample of the local population is able to participate in our consultation. There will be a clear request for you to consent for us to receive your special category personal data. Special Category Personal data  will only be used in aggregate and will be anonymised in any reporting. Once it has been anonymised it cannot be linked to you, and therefore is no longer personal data.

We will not collect Special Category Personal data about you where this is expressly prohibited by local law.


We take steps to protect your personal data  from unlawful access and processing, accidental loss and destruction through technical, organisational and administrative measures.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Data retention

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate need to do so or to meet our legal requirements or in exercising our official authority.

When we have no ongoing legitimate need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Your data protection rights and right to withdraw consent

You have the right to be informed about how and why we collect and use your personal information.

This Privacy Notice serves to inform you about the personal information we hold about you and how we use it.

As we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

You have the right of access to the personal information we hold about you and if you would like to exercise this or any other rights then please contact our Data Protection Officer, who’s contact details are  at the bottom of this notice.

Changes to our privacy policy

Any changes we may make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page.
