Finance Locator Privacy Notice

This notice was last updated on 7 March 2018.

Your privacy is important to Business Wales and Idox and in line with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) we have developed a Privacy Notice that covers why we collect and use your information. This privacy notice ensures that your personal data will be processed fairly and lawfully and in a transparent manner.

Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with our privacy practices.

1. Why we collect and process the data collected

The Welsh Government is the Data Controller for the personal data you have provided on the My Business Wales registration form. A limited portion of the data is passed on to Idox our third party provider; this enables your saved searches to be retrieved for your future use. Where you have requested notifications of funds that match your saved searches then these will be emailed to you. 

2. Personal information that will be collected and held includes:

  • email address
  • first name
  • last name

3. Who will have access to your data: 

The shared information will be accessible by Idox system technical administrators and project managers who support the I.T. system. These administrators will not use your details in any way.  

4. How long are your details kept

Your details will be retained on our system indefinitely until you request for your details to be removed.

5. Your rights.

Under the data protection legislation, you have the right:

  • to access the personal data the Welsh Government holds on you;
  • require us to rectify inaccuracies in that data
  • to (in certain circumstances) object to or restrict processing
  • for (in certain circumstances) your data to be ‘erased’
  • to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) who is our independent regulator for data protection

6. The Freedom of Information Act and your Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 allow the public to ask to see information held by public bodies, including the Welsh Government. The information you provide us may be the subject of a freedom of information request by another member of the public. We would consult with you to seek your views before responding to such a request.
