We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of users to our site and we will use the information that we collect about you lawfully and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”).
Data Protection legislation and the Act is currently going through a period of change. The introduction of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the new British Data Protection Bill, which will replace the Act, is currently passing through Parliament and is the basis of this change. This Privacy Notice is therefore intended to comply with the Act and GDPR but may change over time.
FPU’s DPO is Lucie Millet (subject to change). The FPU DPO fulfils a number of roles, one of which is to be the primary and independent point of contact for Data Subjects. The mechanism for Data Subjects to raise concerns regarding the processing of their personal data by FPU is to email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 8952 0125; or send a letter by registered mail to Full Power Utilities Ltd, Suite 1c, First Floor, Lumiere, Elstree Way, Borehamwood, WD6 1JH, at which point the inquiry will be forwarded to the DPO for action.
