RREC SA Privacy Notice


This document details the RREC SA Privacy Policy. RREC SA is committed to protecting your privacy and personal data. This document is designed to inform you how we look after your personal data when you visit our website (regardless of where you visit it from) or use any of our services, and tell you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

Data Protection Act 2018

This legislation replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 and gives more rights to you as an individual and more obligations to organisations holding your personal data.

One of the rights is a right to be informed, which means we have to give you even more information than we do now about the way in which we use, share and store your personal information. This privacy notice helps you understand your rights, so you can access this information, along with information about the increased rights you have in relation to the information we hold on you and the legal basis on which we are using it.

We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
