How we process, protect and share your personal information
How we protect your information
The security of your information is very important to us. To prevent unauthorised access, accidental loss, disclosure or destruction of data, Nicholls Shipping's computers and servers are behind firewalls, protected by anti-virus software and backed-up regularly. Our servers are only accessible to members of Nicholls Shipping staff using complex passwords that are changed monthly. All the online services we use in relation to the transfer and storage of data are protected by complex passwords.
How we share your information
From time to time we may send information to, receive information from, or exchange your personal information with:
- other parts of the Roger la Borde group to enable us to deliver our service to you and to allow us to
manage our business;
- companies who perform essential services for us;
- regulators, courts or other public authorities;
- the emergency services in the case of accident or emergency;
- our financial or legal representatives, collection agencies, receivers, trade associations and the like
where necessary in accordance with and to enforce the terms of our agreements.
Where we have relationships with other organisations that process your information on our behalf we take care to ensure they have high data security standards that comply with UK and EU law. If the business is reorganised or sold to another organisation, we may transfer any personal information we hold to that organisation.
Some of the companies we use for online services like hosting our website, storing our email or maintaining and publishing our email lists may use data-stores that are outside the UK and/or the EU. This means that your data may be transferred and stored internationally. If you are based outside the EU / UK data may be transferred between the UK and the territory in which you are based. When we do share data which might be transferred internationally, we will only do so with organizations that provide the same privacy and security as is legally required in the UK and the EU.
How long we keep your information
Where you have set up a customer account with us we will keep your personal information only for as long as necessary to administer the accounts you have with us in line with regulatory and legal requirements, and will remove all personal information relating to it when you no longer have a customer relationship with us and all regulatory requirements to hold the information have expired.
Where you have enquired about our products or subscribed on our website we aim to only send you information and marketing about our events, products, services and subscriptions for a maximum of two years unless you have become a customer of ours, are actively engaged with the communications we send you or tell us you still want to hear from us. When we remove you from our subscription list we will also where possible remove your personal information from our databases and any that we control on third-party providers. Please note, we may need to maintain some element of personal information on our servers or those of our email marketing providers to manage unsubscribes and re-subscriptions and ensure that we don’t send emails to someone who has already unsubscribed from our mailing lists.
How you can manage information we hold and how we use it

- you have the right to withdraw your consent from us using your data for any activities we do not have
