Privacy Notice - Environment Agency National Waste Crime Survey
- We are providing you with this information so you know what data we are collecting from you as part of this research study; what we are going to do with it; and your rights over our use of your personal data.
Your personal data
- Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR”).
Who are we?
- The Environment Agency (EA) and SYSTRA Ltd (SYSTRA) are Joint Data Controllers. This means we have decided how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.
- SYSTRA and EA are responsible for collecting and processing your personal data.
What information is being collected?
- As part of the survey we will ask you questions including: background information about your organisation; your experiences of waste crime; your awareness of waste crime in your sector; and whether you’ve noticed any waste crime trends in your sector.
- If you are interested in participating in further research, we will ask for your telephone number so we can arrange an interview for a time and date convenient to you.
How is it collected?
- Your email address and first name was collected through either the purchasing of pre-existing sample lists; or were provided to us by your employer or membership organisation; or provided by the Environment Agency.
- Any contacts obtained from pre-existing sample lists have been sourced in compliance with GDPR, whereby either:
- You have actively opted-in to be included in these lists; or
- The lists are based on legitimate interests.
- All information regarding your experiences and awareness of waste crime is collected through the survey, and if you wish to participate, the follow-up interview.
Why is it being collected?
- Our legal basis for collecting this data is known as ‘public task’. This means we are collecting it to perform a task in the public interest. However, we also wish to have your consent to collect this data.
- Your telephone number is collected if you are interested in taking part in a follow up interview to discuss the topic further.
How will it be used?
- SYSTRA complies with its obligations under the GDPR by: keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.
- Your data will be analysed anonymously with all other participant data. SYSTRA will report the aggregated and anonymous findings of the research to EA, who may share the anonymised results with other partners. No personal identifiers will be used in the report.
Who will it be shared with?
- Your data will only be shared between SYSTRA and EA.
- Your results will not be identifiable to EA.
How long do we keep your personal data?
- We keep your personal data for no longer than reasonably necessary. This will be no later than 1st December 2020, after which all personal data will be destroyed.
- After the end of the study, SYSTRA will erase all personal data that was collected as part of the research. EA will then become the sole Data Controller.
