Privacy Statement


  1. Personal data

Under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) personal data is defined as:

How we use your information

This privacy notice tells you how we, A Staunton Groundwork and Civil Engineering Limited (“A Staunton”), will collect and use your personal data; primarily for providing groundwork and engineering services to our customers. We may use your data for limited marketing purposes but your data is not passed on to third parties for this purpose, save for where we engage a third-party marketing agency to undertake marketing for A Staunton.

Why does A Staunton need to collect and store personal data?

In order for us to provide our customers with groundwork and engineering services. We are committed to ensuring that the information we collect and use is appropriate for this purpose, and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy.

In terms of being contacted for marketing purposes A Staunton would only contact you with details of the services we provide, or with details of an event or construction and engineering industry news which might interest you.

Will A Staunton share my personal data with anyone else?

We may pass your personal data on to third-party service providers contracted to A Staunton in the course of dealing with you. Any third parties that we may share your data with are obliged to keep your details securely, and to use them only to fulfil the service which they provide (eg, supporting our telephones or IT). When they no longer need your data to fulfil this service, they will dispose of the details in line with A Staunton’s procedures. If we wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party we will only do so once we have obtained your consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.

How will A Staunton use the personal data it collects about me?

A Staunton will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary. A Staunton is required to retain information in accordance with the law, such as information needed for, health & safety, or tax and audit purposes. How long certain kinds of personal data should be kept may also be governed by specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.

Under what circumstances will A Staunton contact me?

Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we undertake not to ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure. We will of course contact you in connection with the contract for services in which you have an interest. We may contact you occasionally, in relation to information about our services or the construction industry, which we think may interest you.

Can I find out the personal data that the organisation holds about me?

A Staunton, at your request, can confirm what information we hold about you and how it is processed. If A Staunton does hold personal data about you, you can request the following information:

  • Identity and the contact details of the person or organisation that has determined how and why to process your data.
  • Contact details of the data protection officer, where applicable.
  • The purpose of the processing as well as the legal basis for processing.
  • If the processing is based on the legitimate interests of A Staunton or a third party, information about those interests.
  • The categories of personal data collected, stored and processed.
  • Recipient(s) or categories of recipients that the data is/will be disclosed to.
  • If we intend to transfer the personal data to a third country or international organisation, information about how we ensure this is done securely. The EU has approved sending personal data to some countries because they meet a minimum standard of data protection. In other cases, we will ensure there are specific measures in place to secure your information.
  • How long the data will be stored.
  • Details of your rights to correct, erase, restrict or object to such processing.
  • Information about your right to withdraw consent at any time.
  • How to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority.
  • Whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract, as well as whether you are obliged to provide the personal data and the possible consequences of failing to provide such data.
  • The source of personal data if it wasn’t collected directly from you.
  • Any details and information of automated decision making, such as profiling, and any meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and expected consequences of such processing.

What forms of ID will I need to provide in order to access this?
