Why we use your personal data

SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK, on behalf of Surrey County Council, is responsible for keeping a range of external audiences informed about the Eco Park Surrey, including information on construction progress, operations and services provided. These audiences include but are not limited to:

  • Surrey residents
  • Elected members of partner public authorities
  • Employees of partner authorities
  • Employees of partner organisations
  • Employees of Surrey businesses
  • Representatives of local community organisations

We collect and use your personal data in order to communicate with you in a cost effective and timely way.

What information do we collect?

In the majority of cases we only collect your email address. In some instances we may also collect your name, address and telephone number.

Why are we allowed to use your personal data?

We collect your data when you provide it to us, either by subscribing to our newsletter, thereby giving us permission to use your email address to contact you, or if you contact us with a query or concern through the online form or via email.

If you are a local elected representative, such as a local councillor, we may also contact you as we believe the information is relevant to you and the people you represent.

If we take a photograph of you or film you, we ask for your consent to use this in the communications we undertake.

We do not share your data with anyone outside of the SUEZ Recycling and Recovery, with the exception of third party services used to provide communications.

How long do we hold your data?

We will continue to hold your data unless you tell us you would like to unsubscribe from the publication that you receive or we receive an undelivered notification. All of our publications offer the opportunity to unsubscribe or update your contact details every time they are sent out.

The photo and film consent lasts for five years after which we will re-seek your consent or no longer use the photo or film.

Third Party Services

We use software to enable us to send our newsletter. In order to be able to do this, we must transfer your email address to the third party service provider. The third party services providers are GDPR compliant and will not use your data for any other purposes, or transfer it onto anyone else.
