What Data We Collect

When registering to receive RNS or media updates we collect personal data like your contact information. Similarly Shareholders acquiring shares will register their name and address.  We also collect contact information in respect of advisors or third parties and in certain circumstances are required to collect and maintain additional personal information such as ID or Passport numbers for regulatory purposes.

Use of personal Data for Marketing Communications

We only send post, email, text messages and mobile notifications to you about news and services that we consider may be of interest to you only if you have given us permission to do so. 

Electronic notifications may be sent to you via your internet browser if you have given consent for us to do so. If you subsequently wish to remove consent for these you can do so following the instructions provided by your internet browser software.

Who Controls or Has Access to the Data?

Personal data is accessed and processed by staff at the support office of Capital & Regional. The use of personal data will remain under the control of Capital & Regional at all times operating as the Data Controller. Capital & Regional do not sell your data to other companies.

We use selected third parties, called Data Processors, to help operate our services which include, for example, email system or database providers. When employing Data Processors, we ensure that they comply with data protection laws including ensuring that data is held securely and that only the information required to complete the work is supplied to them.
