Data Protection & Privacy Policy

Protection of Personal Data

It is our policy to protect data and comply with Data Protection regulations. Personal data must be controlled and secured and details must not disclosed to any other person (whether inside or outside the company) unless authorised to do so. The data protection declaration applies to all processing of personal data carried out by us, both in the context of providing our services and, in particular, on our websites, in mobile applications and within external online presences, such as our social media profiles (hereinafter also referred to collectively as "online offer"). To ensure all workers and 3rd party users are aware of data protection obligations and information security we have a training programme in place which covers this and other relevant policies.

Compliance with Data Protection Regulations

To ensure we are in compliance with data protection regulations including General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) the company has taken various measures to ensure we are meeting all requirements;

  • Data Protection Officer – our management system details key responsibilities including details of a Data Protection Officer (DPO)

  • Personal Data Collected - we do not actively collect or process any personal information other than the details of our employees & 3rd parties who by providing their data have given consent for their use which can be a component of our (pre)contractual services (applicant selection procedure), purpose of tendering and in pursuit of securing contracts where their business services will be contracted, provided that the use of the 3rd party providers has been agreed in this context. Otherwise, user data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in efficient and secure communication with our communication partners. This data may also hold some personal data from interactions with prospective and existing customers and systems are in place to manage this data. By submitting data to us, 3rd Parties agree to the processing of their data for the purposes of the applicant selection procedure in accordance with the type and scope described in this data protection declaration.

Personal data is information about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as your name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth, but also data about your specific career, etc., which can be assigned to a specific person with reasonable effort.

  • Processed data types: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers, linked profiles ie LinkedIn, Facebook), content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos, Skill Sets), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses), Certification (Passports, IDs, Medical Certificates, Associated Training and Certification)

  • Data Submission – By means of an online form on our website www.OceanPhoenix.co.uk. Or via the online Portal also available on the website. The data is transmitted to us in encrypted form according to the state of the art. Applicants can also send us their applications by e-mail. *Please note, however, that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and that applicants must ensure that they are encrypted themselves. We cannot therefore accept any responsibility for the transmission path of the application and therefore recommend that you use an online form / portal.

  • Data Review - we regularly review and check Personal data by completing a data audit to identify "any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (data subject)", to ensure the personal data we hold is required, lawfully managed and processed and accurate.

  • Data Retention  data retention is managed and retention period is documented in our management system manual.

  • Consent - if any data is to be collected for any purpose other than normal employment purposes we will obtain your explicit consent and you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.

  • Data Processing / Transfer - Personal data is processed and handled in a lawful and transparent manner with clear communication of what data we hold, why we hold it and how long we retain it. In the course of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transferred to or disclosed to other bodies, companies, legally independent organisational units or persons. The recipients of this data may include, for example, prospective clients, payment institutions in the context of payment transactions, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such cases we observe the legal requirements and in particular conclude appropriate contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data which serve to protect your data.

Transfer of data within the organization: We may transfer personal data to other entities within our organization or grant them access to such data. If this transfer is for administrative purposes, the transfer of the data is based on our legitimate business and commercial interests or takes place if it is necessary to fulfil our contractual obligations or if there is a consent of the persons concerned or a legal permission.

  • If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside UK), or if the processing takes place in the context of the use of services of third parties or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this will only take place in accordance with the legal requirements.

  • Data Security - we have measures in place to protect Confidentiality, Integrity and Accessibility of all company data and complete regular audits and reviews of the security of personal data and information security systems in accordance with legal requirements. Taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing, as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in order to ensure a level of protection commensurate with the risk.

  • These measures shall include in particular the safeguarding of confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to data as well as access, input, disclosure, safeguarding of availability and segregation of data relating thereto. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure that data subjects' rights are exercised, data is deleted, and responses are made to any threats to the data.

The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements as soon as their consent permitted for processing is revoked or other permissions cease to apply (e.g. if the purpose for which the data were processed ceases to apply or if they are not necessary for the purpose).

Unless the data are deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing is limited to these purposes. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law or that must be stored for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person.

  • Active Sourcing - If we approach potential 3rd Party candidates on behalf of clients, information and data of potential candidates are collected and processed from publicly available sources. The persons concerned are contacted by us and approached about a relevant opportunity.

Within the framework of the applicable law, we only pass on the data of the contractual partners to third parties to the extent that this is necessary for the aforementioned purposes or to fulfil legal obligations or with the consent of the contractual partners (e.g. to involved telecommunications, transport and other auxiliary services as well as subcontractors, banks, tax and legal advisors, tax authorities). The contractual partners will be informed about other forms of processing, e.g. for marketing purposes, within the scope of this data protection declaration.

  • If we use third-party providers or platforms to provide our services, the terms and conditions and data protection information of the respective third-party providers or platforms apply in the relationship between the users and the providers.

  • Newsletter and electronic notifications - We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications (hereinafter referred to as "correspondence ") only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. If, in the course of registering for the correspondence, its contents are specifically described, they are decisive for the consent of the users. Furthermore, our correspondence contain information about our services and us.

To register for our correspondence, it is generally sufficient to provide your e-mail address. However, we may ask you to provide a name for the purpose of personal contact in the correspondence, or other details if these are necessary for the purposes of the correspondence.

Double opt-in procedure: The registration to our correspondence is always done in a so-called Double-Opt-In-Procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with foreign e-mail addresses. The correspondence registrations are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.

The logging of the registration procedure is based on our legitimate interests for the purpose of proving that it has been carried out properly. If we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure sending system.

Information on legal bases: The sending of correspondence is based on the consent of the recipients or, if consent is not required, on our legitimate interests in direct marketing, if and to the extent permitted by law, e.g. in the case of advertising to existing customers. If we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests. The registration process is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests in order to prove that it was carried out in accordance with the law.

  • Processed data types: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times).

  • Affected persons: communication partners.

  • Purposes of processing: direct marketing (e.g. by e-mail or by post, Portal).

  • Right of objection (Opt-out): You can cancel the receipt of our correspondence at any time, i.e. revoke your consent or object to further receipt. You will find a link to cancel the correspondence either at the end of each correspondence  or you can use one of the contact options listed above, preferably by Portal / e-mail.

  • Presence in social networks (Social Media) - We maintain online presences within social networks and process user data in this context in order to communicate with the users active there or to offer information about us.

Please note that user data may be processed outside the UK. This can result in risks for the users, because the enforcement of the users' rights could be made more difficult.

Furthermore, user data within social networks are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created on the basis of user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

  • For a detailed presentation of the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.

  • Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of data subject rights, we would like to point out that these can most effectively be asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users in each case and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information.

    • Processed data types: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).

    • Affected persons: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).

    • Processing purposes: contact requests and communication, tracking (e.g. interest/behavioural profiling, use of cookies), remarketing.

  • Data Breaches – all data breaches will be reported internally and significant breaches will be reported to the ICO and affected data subjects notified within 72 hours of discovery.

  • Used services and service providers – Can be provided on request

Much of the arrangements for management of data, documented information, ongoing checks including internal audits are all covered by our ISO compliant integrated management system which includes the following;

  • Summary of all company procedures and policies relating to Data management / Security

  • Organisation details including details of the Data Protection Officer and summary of their responsibilities

  • Document register detailing what records we hold, how managed and retention period
