Surveillance cameras are located in public access areas such as meeting rooms, post rooms, corridors, cafes, canteens, libraries, stairs, lifts, reception areas and fire exits. Surveillance cameras on these sites record images only; there is no recording of sound.

Designated RSC staff have 24 hour access to the surveillance feeds and may access them during out of office hours in the case of an emergency, incident or alarm activation at our sites.

ADT, or any such third party contractor, will not have access to the surveillance footage off-site/remotely.

The Royal Society of Chemistry is a global organisation with subsidiary companies located around the world. This Statement establishes our global principles for the collection, use and disclosure of information gathered through our websites and applications. The country in which you are doing business with us or where the website you are visiting is located/hosted may have specific requirements concerning personal data.

On occasion, the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). By way of example, this may happen where any of our servers or those of our third party service providers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EEA. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. Where possible, we will seek to work with service providers whose servers are located within the EEA.

如果我们欧洲经济区以外的传递你的信息in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this policy. These steps include imposing contractual obligations on the recipient of your personal information or ensuring that the recipients are subscribed to ‘international frameworks’ that aim to ensure adequate protection.

We have not set out the specific circumstances when each of these protection measures are used. You can contact us atdpo@rsc.orgfor the details as to how we protect specific transfer of your data.

Children’s Data

We recognise any individual under the age of 18 years old as being a child. We take safeguarding of children (including the protection of their personal data) seriously and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that children are provided with sufficiently clear information on how we will collect, process and store their personal data, and that children and their guardians understand the nature of the processing of their personal data together with their rights in respect of the same.

Save for photography and filming, children under 18 years old may be able to provide consent in their own right to the processing of their personal data depending on their maturity and ability to understand the nature of the processing of that data. We will take reasonable steps to assess a child’s maturity and ability to understand the nature of data processing before determining whether a child can reasonably consent to processing in their own right. Further information on how we will assess a child’s ability to consent in their own right can be supplied on request via our contact details above.

Special categories of personal data

We may collect special categories of personal data if it is provided to us by you, or on your behalf, with your consent and it is appropriate to the service that we will provide to you. By giving us this information, you agree that we may use such data as set out in this Statement.

Data anonymisation and aggregation

We may anonymise or aggregate your personal information in such a way as to ensure that you are not identified or identifiable from it, in order to use the anonymised or aggregated data, for example, for statistical analysis and administration including analysis of trends, to carry out actuarial work, to tailor products and services and to conduct risk assessment and analysis of costs and charges in relation to our products and services. We may share anonymised or aggregated data with third parties.

Your rights

We also offer the following controls:

  1. You may request access to, or copies of, the personal data that we hold about you. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us at DPO@rsc.org or the RSC designated address above;
  2. If you believe that any data we have about you is incorrect or incomplete, or have concerns as to how we are using your data please contact us at DPO@rsc.org as soon as possible. We will take steps to seek to correct or update any data if we are satisfied that the data we hold is inaccurate.
  3. You may request that your personal data is deleted, where it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it is being processed and provided there is no other lawful basis for which we may continue to process such data;
  4. 如果我们正在处理您的个人数据以满足我们的合法利益,则可能会反对这种处理。如果我们无法证明我们的处理合法理由,我们将不再出于这些目的处理您的个人数据;
  5. You may withdraw any consent given to processing (this will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal); or
  6. If we are processing your personal data automatically, for the purposes of performing our contract with you, or based on your consent you may have the right to request that the personal data we hold about you be transferred to a third party data controller.

如果您认为我们违反了根据数据保护法规的义务,则可以向信息专员办公室.

保留

We have criteria in place in relation to how we determine the period for which we use your personal data, as well as a process for their deletion at the end of the relevant retention period. For more information please contact our Data Protection Officer at the address shown above. In certain circumstances, we may be required to retain your personal data for longer where such retention is required by law or record-keeping requirements, including managing our relationship with you, defending any claims, or for tax purposes.

Changes to this Statement

We may change this Statement from time to time in order to reflect changes in the law and/or our privacy practices. We will update the date at the top of the Statement accordingly.
