Stakeholder engagement privacy notice

As part of our commitment to inform the public about Five Estuaries Offshore Wind Farm Limited, we invite anyone to join as a stakeholder to receive communications about the wind farm.

What personal information we collect and why

As an important contact for the project, to keep you informed, up-to-date and to make you aware of key activities such as consultation and events we use a stakeholder management tool called Tractivity.

We may also undertake general analysis around stakeholder engagement in order to assess its effectiveness, such as the number/frequency of publications provided or requested.

Our lawful basis is your consent:

We collect the following personal information:


Contact Details: email address(es), relevant phone number(s), personal website, social media details e.g. LinkedIn or Skype ID, Organisation name and Job Title linked to your personal details

Biographical: name, job title(s), details of your role

Political opinion

Administrative: Records relating to our professional relationship, enquiries and correspondence, event booking and attendance at events

How we use your personal information

Sharing and disclosure of personal information to third parties

We do not routinely share your personal information with third parties except from Tractivity who provide us with the stakeholder management tool.

We may disclose your personal information when required for:

Compliance with laws and furtherance of our regulatory functions

In order to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or government request or in the proper exercise of our regulatory functions

To protect the vital interests or your or another individual

To exercise or defend our legal rights


We use appropriate technical, organisational and administrative measures to protect any personal information we process.

Data retention

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate need to do so or to meet our legal requirements or in exercising our official authority.

When we have no ongoing legitimate need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Your data protection rights

You have the right to be informed about how and why we collect and use your personal information.

This Stakeholder Engagement Privacy Notice forms part of our work to inform you about the personal information we hold about you and how we use it.

As we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

You have the right of access to the personal information we hold about you and if you would like to exercise this or any other rights then please contact us:
