In those circumstances, your personal information will be subject to confidentiality undertakings.

We only allow them to process your personal information for specified purposes and in accordance with our written instructions and we do not allow them to use your personal information for their own purposes.

Your rights in connection with your personal information
As a data subject, you have a number of statutory rights. Subject to certain conditions, and in certain circumstances, you have the right to:
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact our data protection Officer. In the limited circumstances where you have provided your consent to the processing of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. This will not, however, affect the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before its withdrawal. If you wish to withdraw your consent, please contact our data protection officer. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your personal information for the purpose you originally agreed to, unless we have another legal basis for processing.

Transferring personal information outside the European Economic Area
The Company will not transfer your personal information to countries outside the European Economic Area.
Disclosing and Sharing data
We will never sell your personal data. If you have opted-in to marketing, we may contact you with information about our partners, or third party products and services, but these communications will always come from EOGB and are usually incorporated into our own marketing materials (e.g. advertisements in magazines or newsletters).
We may share personal data with subcontractors or suppliers who provide us with services. For example, if you order something from EOGB, your name and address will be shared with the delivery company. However, these activities will be carried out under a contract which imposes strict requirements on our supplier to keep your information confidential and secure.
We use personal data to communicate with people and to promote EOGB. This includes keeping you up to date with our news, updates, campaigns and training information EOGB will now ask you to “opt-in” for most communications. This includes all our marketing communications. This means you’ll have the choice as to whether you want to receive these messages and be able to select how you want to receive them (post, phone, email, text).
You can decide not to receive communications or change how we contact you at any time. If you wish to do so please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, writing to EOGB 5 Howard Road, Eaton Socon, St Neots, Cambs. PE19 8ET or telephoning 01480 477066 (Lines open 8.30am – 4.30pm, Mon – Fri).
Some of our premises have CCTV and you may be recorded when you visit them. CCTV is there to help provide security and to protect both you and EOGB. CCTV will only be viewed when necessary (e.g. to detect or prevent crime) and footage is only stored temporarily. Unless it is flagged for review CCTV will be recorded over.
EOGB complies with the Information Commissioner’s Office CCTV Code of Practice, and we put up notices so you know when CCTV is in use.
EOGB’s operations are based in the UK and we store our data within the European Union. Some organisations which provide services to us may transfer personal data outside of the EEA, but we’ll only allow them to do if your data is adequately protected.
