Privacy Policy

We hope the following policy will help you understand how M.P. Evans collects, uses, and safeguards your information.

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to add, modify or remove portions of this policy at any time. Please check it periodically for changes.

WHAT PERSONAL DATA DO WE USE?

Information we collect may include personal data. We treat all this information as confidential. We do not give it or sell it to any third party, except as required by law or as necessary for us to provide you with the information or service you have requested.

You may contact us in person, by email, or telephone call, to give feedback, make an enquiry or request a service such as sending you material we have published about M.P. Evans, or subscribing to digital alerts, on-line investor events and on-line AGM and voting facilities when provided. This would require us to record personal data, such as your name, address, contact information and preferences.

Use of Email Addresses
Email addresses that you provide to us via the website will be used for the sole purpose of sending you RNS announcements about M.P. Evans and notifications about updates to the website. M.P. Evans will not pass your details on to third parties outside the M.P. Evans group of companies (except, as necessary, to third party providers of service announcements and services to the website).

Browsing
If you browse the website, you do so anonymously. We may use your IP address (the internet address of your computer) to administer the website and to collect and distribute aggregate statistics about our visitors such as traffic patterns and related site information, time spent on a page etc., for internal use only.

Cookies
When someone visits the site, a cookie is placed on the customer's machine (if the customer accepts cookies) or is read if the customer has visited the site previously. See our Cookies page for further information.

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Our processing of your personal data generally takes place in the UK, either in-house, or through our local service providers. However, M.P. Evans and other members of the Group also operate outside of the European Union (EU), so we may transfer data you submit to us within our organisation, including to our subsidiaries, strictly in order to fulfil your information requests. These companies are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are restricted from using it for any purpose other than helping us to provide you with information you have requested.

LEGAL REASONS

Where we process your personal data, we need to have a valid legal basis for doing so. The legal bases for our processing would be one of the following:

  • You have given consent to processing for one or more specific purposes.
  • It is necessary for us to process your personal data for us to perform our obligations under either a contract you have with us, or to take steps at your request before entering a contract with you or a contract we have with a client you have a relationship with (e.g. your employer).
  • It is necessary for us to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject.
  • It is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, and those interests are not overridden by your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms.
  • It is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
INFORMATION PROTECTION

We are fully committed to data security. To prevent unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate usage of the information by authorised users, we have put in place physical, electronic, and organisational procedures to safeguard and secure the information you provide to us online. However, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information during transmission through the internet. In this regard, we advise you to take every precaution to protect your personal data while you are using the Internet.

DATA RETENTION

M.P. Evans will process personal data relating to you only until such time as there is no further need to maintain that data. At that stage, the personal data about you and any other data provided by you will be deleted. You should also be aware that if you access this website from another country, personal data held by M.P. Evans may be sent to you in that country, together with any information you download. That country's data protection laws may not provide adequate protection in respect of your personal data.

YOUR RIGHTS

Accessing your information
You may ask for a copy of the personal data we hold about you.

Correcting your information
We try to ensure that all of your personal data is accurate. If you find any inaccuracies or if your details change, please notify us promptly and we will correct them.

Erasing or restricting use of your information
You may ask us to erase or restrict use of your personal data. If you do, we will comply with your request unless there is a legal reason for us not to (for example, if a law says we must retain records for a fixed period and to do so we must retain your personal data).

Withdrawing consent
Where the legal basis for us processing your personal data is that you have given your consent to that processing, you may withdraw your consent at any time. If you wish to unsubscribe from M.P Evans email communications at any time, simply select the unsubscribe link in the email. If you do so we will stop processing your personal data promptly.

Complaints
If you have any complaints about the way we use your personal data, please contact us and we will try to resolve the issue.

You also have the right to complain to the data protection supervisory authority in your country. If you need more information about how to contact your local data protection authority, please contact us.
