The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, its members and subsidiaries (“OGCI”), and OGCI Climate Investments LLP and its members and subsidiaries (“the Company” or “we“, “us“, “our“) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. OGCI is an initiative that does not have a separate legal personality which means that CI acts as the controller of your personal information that is collected via the OGCI website: ogci.com (the “site”) .
For the purpose of this policy, “Data Protection Legislation” means “the UK GDPR” and “the 2018 Act” as both terms are respectively defined (and as the UK GDPR and 2018 Act are respectively amended) by the Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (SI 2019/419). Where this policy uses terms which are defined in the UK GDPR, then the definitions set out in the UK GDPR will apply.
Under the Data Protection Legislation, and as explained above, CI is the controller of the personal information we collect about you from the site, unless you specifically provide your personal information to another identified entity via the site – in which case, that entity will be the controller of such personal information. If you have any requests concerning your personal information or any queries with regard to these practices, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Information you give us
This is information about you that you give us by filling in forms on the site such as an application for investment or a job application or by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise. It includes information you provide when you register with our site, contact us, subscribe to receive further information and when you report a problem with our site. The information you give us may include your first and last name, address, e-mail address, phone number, job title, the company you work for or any other details which you choose to include in your CV or covering letter (if applying for a job vacancy).
Depending on the context of your communication with the Company, we will use your personal information where we have a legitimate interest to do so, for example to:
- respond to your enquiry or provide you with information that you request from us;
- to provide you with information we offer that is similar to that which you have already purchased or enquired about;
- consider your application to work for us;
- consider how your business could support or work with our business;
- respond to any existing client, supplier or partner of ours in relation to a pre-existing agreement or relationship;
- to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us;
- to ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
You are entitled to unsubscribe from us contacting you by e-mail or by telephone for this reason at any time. If you subsequently decide that you do not want to hear from us about the service we could provide to your business, please let us know by emailing email@example.com with the subject heading “Unsubscribe” or please click the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email that we have sent to you. If you do unsubscribe, this will not affect our use of the personal information prior to you unsubscribing, but it will mean that we will not be able to contact you about the services we may be able to offer you or your business in the future.
2. Information we collect about you
With regard to each of your visits to the site we may automatically collect the following information:
- technical information, including the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform;
- information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL), clickstream to, through and from the site (including date and time), products you viewed or searched for, page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), methods used to browse away from the page and any phone number used to call our contact number.
We will use the above information where we have a legitimate interest to do so, such as:
- to administer our site and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;
- to improve our site to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;
- to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so;
- as part of our efforts to keep our site safe and secure;
- to make suggestions and recommendations to you and other users of our site that may interest you or them
Where we do rely on a legitimate interest to process your information, we carry out a “balancing” test to make sure our legitimate interest does not override your privacy rights as an individual.
We consider that it is reasonable for us to process your information for the purposes of our legitimate interests outlined above as: (a) we process your information only so far as is necessary for such purpose; and (b) it can be reasonably expected for us to process your information in this way.
3. Information we receive from other sources
In certain circumstances (e.g. following an application for a vacancy), we may combine the information you give to us with information we collect about you from additional sources. We will use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out above (depending on the types of information we receive).
4. Disclosure of your information
We may share your personal information with others in order to confirm your identity and respond to your enquiry. By visiting our site, the following disclosures may occur:
- we may check your personal information by searching for your name and that of your business in a publicly available and private database of businesses and individuals, which will use the details entered by us to provide us with the search results. For example, we may use databases such as those retained by LinkedIn or Companies House for this purpose;
- we may pass your information to selected third parties including
- companies participating in the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative
- business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you;
- advertisers and advertising networks that require the data to select and serve relevant adverts to you and others. We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we will provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in SW1);
- analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site;
If we do share your personal information with others, we will do so in accordance with this policy and with the Data Protection Legislation.
5. Records of personal information
We will keep a record of the personal information that we receive from you in accordance with our legitimate interest to answer your enquiry or in response to an enquiry from one of our existing suppliers. We will retain a copy of your personal information held for the specific purpose for which it was provided, until it is no longer required to fulfil that purpose and we no longer need to comply with a legal obligation that requires us to retain your personal information.
6. Transfers outside the the United Kingdom or EEA: where we store your data
Where we pass your personal information to parties located outside of the United Kingdom or EEA that do not offer adequate protection, if they are not subscribed to an approved data protection framework, we will enter into agreements which enable us to transfer that personal information to them and that enable you to exercise your rights in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, 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.
We will carry out an appropriate risk assessment of the laws and practices of the destination country to identify any technical and organisational measures that need to be put in place to ensure that your personal information is fully protected when in that country.
