The type of personal information we collect

We may collect and process the following information:

  • Contact Data – including personal identifiers (e.g. name) and contact details (e.g. email address and telephone numbers).
  • Usage Data – including information about how you use our website.
  • Technical Data – including internet protocol (IP) address.
  • Marketing and Communications Data – including your preferences in receiving marketing from us and our third parties and your communication preferences.

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

 

How your personal data is collected

Most of the personal information we process is provided to us directly by you through:

  • the Contact Us page on our website;
  • email contact from you.

We may also receive personal information indirectly, from the following sources in the following scenarios:

  • Automated technologies or interactions (for example Technical Data about your browsing actions and patterns or via cookies and other similar technologies);
  • Third parties or publicly available sources for example DVLA, VOSA and Companies House.

 

How we use your personal data

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal obligation.
  • Where we need to perform any contract we may enter into with you.

We will use the information that you have given us in order to further the collective action to obtain fair compensation for UK truck owners and leaseholders who have suffered loss caused by the EU Trucks cartel.

We may share this information with our legal and professional advisors and only to the extent that it is necessary.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:

(a) We have a legitimate interest.

(b) We have a legal obligation.

(c) We have a contractual obligation.

Third-party marketing – We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.

You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at any time.

 

Change of purpose – We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.

If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

 

How we store your personal information

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purpose we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

We anticipate keeping your personal data for a period of 6 years following the conclusion of UKTC’s involvement in the Trucks cartel litigation (including any appeals and the distribution of any damages award).

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Your data protection rights below for further information.

In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Your data protection rights

Under data protection law, you have rights including:

Your right of access – You have the right to ask us for copies of your personal information.

Your right to rectification – You have the right to ask us to rectify personal information you think is inaccurate. You also have the right to ask us to complete information you think is incomplete.

Your right to data portability – You have the right to ask that we transfer the personal information you gave us to another organisation, or to you, in certain circumstances.

You are not required to pay any charge for exercising your rights.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Please contact us at info@uktrucksclaim.co.uk or by post if you wish to make a request.
