Privacy Policy

Introduction

Battersea Park Business (BPB) privacy policy. BPB is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to increase opportunities for local businesses and provides a network where enterprises can help and support one another. Building a thriving business community is at the core of BPB’s objectives, by making it possible for residents, visitors, other businesses and developers to access local services and amenities more easily. Whilst upholding the objective to promote local businesses, BPB is committed to also protecting and respecting your privacy.

The information contained within this privacy policy explains what information is collected about you, how this is collected and under what circumstances would this information be disclosed to others. This policy applies to both the BPB website and offline business directory and mailing list.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy or our privacy practices, this should be sent either by email to batterseaparkbusinesses@gmail.com or in writing to Battersea Park Businesses Ltd, Unit 67 Spaces Business Centre, Ingate Place, SW8 3NS.

What information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you register to become a member of BPB on our website or when you email us. From time to time, we also carry out outreach work engaging directly with businesses in the local area through walk-up or pre-arranged meetings, emails and phone calls using information that is publicly available to contact you (eg business website). During these engagement activities, we will ask you whether you would like to be contacted by the organisation in relation to BPB activities and where appropriate, for more precise contact details.

How is information collected?

When registering online via our website you will be asked to provide your name, email, contact number and business address, however you can visit our website anonymously.
During any business engagement activities as described above, you may also be asked if you wish to provide any one or all of the aforementioned contact details.

What do we use your information for?

Information that we collect from you is only used in the following ways:

– To send periodic emails and/or newsletters for the purposes of keeping you updated with BPB related meetings, events and other activities being undertaken by the organisation. We may also email you to notify you about any key events taking place in the immediate area that may be of interest to businesses, such as events held in and around the Power Station.

– To administer surveys and feedback requests in relation to BPB activities. For example, we may invite you to respond to questionnaires about trading conditions for your business and other area-wide issues. This helps BPB evaluate changes in business prosperity and to assess what local needs are when implementing environmental projects.

– To contact you regarding payment for your membership and other costs where applicable.

How long is your information kept for?

We keep your information on record for the purposes mentioned above and in order to meet BPB’s objectives to sustain a local business network. The length of time we retain your personal information for is determined by the operational considerations of the organisation and therefore unless you request for your details to be removed or changed, we will retain your personal information for the duration of the company’s existence. However, BPB does conduct regular reviews of the business directory and mailing list and where appropriate, contact details will be removed if businesses have moved away from the area, for example, and no longer wish to receive information or news from BPB.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

BPB does not sell, rent or share information to third parties for marketing purposes. However, subject to obtaining your consent, your contact details may be added to an offline business directory held by BPB for the purposes of providing a local supplier list to developers in the area who may be looking to purchase products and/or procure the services from local businesses.

By agreeing to be included in this offline directory, you would be giving your consent for your information to be shared with developers working in the area, such as the Battersea Power Station Development Company. Third-party developers may wish to share information about your business to their mailing list of residents and visitors in order to promote the local business base but will not share your personal data. We will not share your details with any other parties without your consent unless required to do so by law.
