We will share your data with advisors and external technical consultants in order to apply for planning permission and grid connection, conduct surveys and review the Rights. We will share your data with our joint venture companies and other companies in the Island Green Power group.
Personal data may be shared with government and/or local authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if required for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws. As a listed company Island Green Power Limited may share business operational details with the Oslo Stock Exchange, such as shareholder names and addresses.

Where information is transferred outside the UK/EEA, and where this is to a stakeholder or vendor in a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission or recognised by the UK, personal data is adequately protected by EU Commission / ICO approved standard contractual clauses or a vendor’s Processor Binding Corporate Rules. A copy of the relevant mechanism can be provided for your review on request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What rights do I have?
You have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal data; to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your personal data; and to obtain the personal data you provide to us for a contract or with your consent in a structured, machine readable format, and to ask us to share (port) this data to another controller.
In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the data for direct marketing).
These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, where they would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights) or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping. Relevant exemptions are included in both the GDPR and in the Data Protection Act 2018. We will inform you of relevant exemptions we rely upon when responding to any request you make.

This likely to be the Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK.

How long will you retain my data?
