This notice sets out how we will use your personal data, and your rights. It is made under Articles 13 and/or 14 of the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR).
We will process the following personal data:
The purpose(s) for which we are processing your personal data is to support:
Should you contact the enquiries service, we will be processing your personal data so that we can continue to liaise with you and your company about your projects that may apply to the IETF for support.
The legal basis for processing your personal data is that processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller, such as the exercise of a function of the Crown, a Minister of the Crown, or a government department; the exercise of a function conferred on a person by an enactment; the exercise of a function of either House of Parliament; or the administration of justice for the assessment of potential awarding of grant funding.
Should you contact the enquiries service, the legal basis for processing your personal data is your consent to us doing so.
Your personal data will be shared by us with Jeremy Benn Associates Limited (JBA) and other third party contractors appointed by BEIS for the purposes of assessment, monitoring, communication, research and/or evaluation relating to the IETF.

Data may be shared with other governmental departments and the devolved administrations.
As your personal data will be stored on our IT infrastructure it will also be shared with our data processors Microsoft and Amazon Web Services.
Your personal data will be kept by us for a period of 3 years following the end of the IETF, whether or not your application is successful or unsuccessful. In this case “the end of the IETF” means the date on which the final payments are made under the scheme (i.e. closure of the IETF). Data shall be retained for the purposes of evaluating and developing the scheme. This may involve contacting you to participate in a survey as part of the evaluation.
Your personal data will not be subject to automated decision making.

You have the right in certain circumstances (for example, where accuracy is contested) to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data where it is processed for direct marketing purposes.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data.
You have the right to withdraw consent to the processing of your personal data at any time (in circumstances where you contact the enquiries service). If you wish to exercise that right, you should email [email protected] or [email protected].
As your personal data is stored on our IT infrastructure and shared with our data processors Microsoft and Amazon Web Services, it may be transferred and stored securely in the UK and European Economic Area (EEA). Where it is the case that your personal data is stored outside the UK and EEA it will be subject to equivalent legal protection through the use of Model Contract Clauses
