Water Bill Ltd respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your data.  We will only use the information that you provide to us lawfully (in accordance with current UK Data Protection Acts and Privacy and Communications Directives).  This includes information submitted voluntarily by you through a form or gathered automatically as you visit this website.  This privacy notice will inform you as to how we look after your data and tell you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.  

This privacy notice aims to give you information on how Water Bill Ltd collects and processes your personal data, our legal obligations under applicable data protection law and your rights as a data subject.  It also contains information about who to contact if you want to exercise any of your rights in relation to our personal data processing including who to contact if you wish to make a complaint.

If you have any questions about this privacy notice, including any requests to exercise your legal rights, please contact us using the details set out below –

email: admin@waterbill.ltd.uk

By submitting your contact details to us, we may contact you or send you marketing materials.  We will give you the chance to refuse any marketing emails from us in the future.

Our processes include the use of data, some of which may constitute personal data and these processes include compliance with data protection and privacy laws.

Categories of personal data being processed –

Some non-household customers will be sole traders and our processes will request personal data about those sole traders.  Information about other types of customer (e.g. companies and partnerships) is not personal data.  This data may include the name of an individual, a job title, the organisation that the individual works for, contact details and records of any communication with the individual.  Data may also include details relating to the address of the sole trader or individual.

Purpose and legal basis of processing –

The information that we process will be used to complete our services.

Recipients of data collected –

Personal information provided by you will be shared amongst licensed providers where the individual has agreed to their information being shared.

All personal data is held and processed within the UK.

Individuals may request the following –

– Access to their data that you provide and we process;

– Correction to any of the data;

– Restrictions to processing any of the data; 

– Cessation to processing of the data; and

– Erasure of the data.  

This privacy notice is designed in line with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)2016/679.  It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current.  Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.

If you would like us to update any of your personal data including contact information, please email admin@waterbill.ltd.uk.

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services).  In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

You may give us your personal data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us in person, by email, by phone, by post or otherwise.  We may receive personal data about you from various third parties and public sources.  We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to.  The GDPR requires us to have a lawful basis for every processing activity that we perform.  Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data.

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 we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the lawful 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.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email admin@waterbill.ltd.uk.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights).  However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.  Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

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.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month.  Occasionally, it may 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.
