We never pass private data to any third party unless it is for legitimate and expressly or contractually agreed purposes. This has always been our policy, and despite the slightly more complex requirements of GDPR will remain the core of how we operate for you.

We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We will treat personal or business information lawfully and, in a manner, which is in accordance with the Principles of the EU General Data Protection Regulations 2018 (GDPR) and all other data protection legislation currently in force.

As with all businesses our professionalism and effectiveness rely on the staff being aware, trained and competent to manage the day-to-day application of data management and security. To this end, our staff are receiving in-house training in the appropriate management of client data.

ETH Safety Limited may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy was last updated on 25th May 2018.

How long do we hold data for?

When you request our services and we perform what is required, we will maintain the information in our systems until the client relationship has ended. However, some data (employees training records and names) collected on behalf of our client to enable us to assess contractors’ health and safety competence would be permanently deleted from our database at the end of the project or just after the assessment process.

Where a contractor is on a framework agreement with our client, such data may be securely saved on our cloud system (provided by Microsoft) with restricted access (i.e. a combination of PIN and password) until there is a need to continue to retain it.
