To the maximum extent permitted by law, MED will not be liable for any cost, loss or damage suffered by you through your use of MED’s Website or MED’s failure to provide access to this Internet Website or information updates.
Your use of the MED Website is governed by the MED Website Terms and Conditions of Use. This site is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.
For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 2018, the data controller is MED Energy PLC with a registered address at 2nd Floor, Ludgate Hill, London, United Kingdom, (EC4M 7JW). If you have any questions about this policy, and/or including any data subject access requests to exercise your legal rights (which are further detailed in this policy) please email our Data Protection Officer directly at email@example.com.
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint) which is the United Kingdom’s authority for data protection issues. MED would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the DPC so kindly contact us in the first instance.
MED collects the following standard information regarding visitors to our Website: the pages that you view, the links you click, and other actions taken in the Website. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit such as your IP address (browser type, language, access times) and referring website addresses. MED collects and logs this information for statistical purposes, to administer our Website and servers and/or to allow for auditing of our services by third parties.
MED will only use your data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, MED will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
Other than as stated above, no attempt is made by MED to identify users or their browsing activities except where legally required to do so, in the event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect logs, or where MED believes it is required to collect and produce relevant electronic documentation to fulfil its obligations to third parties, including statutory organisations under local law.
MED endeavours to use and disclose your personal information only in limited circumstances. MED will do so if it is necessary to protect any copyright or intellectual property in the material on the website, or if it is necessary to enforce the MED Website Terms and Conditions of Use.
MED may disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 7 and 8 of the Companies Act 2014. Under certain circumstances we may disclose your personal information to third parties as well.
Disclosure conditions are as follows:
MED retains personal information only for as long as is required to communicate with its shareholders and potential investors in accordance with consent obtained through its email subscriber service. Communications sent through this service provide an unsubscribe link which is monitored by MED’s Data Protection Officer.
MED takes all reasonable security measures to protect personal information from loss, unauthorised access, destruction, misuse, modification, or disclosure although MED takes such steps to protect your information, no security program is fool proof and thus we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal or other information; any transmission is at your own risk. As far as permissible under law, MED accepts no responsibility for the unauthorised access of personal information held by MED.
In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any company outside MED for marketing purposes.
MED offers a free subscription service, through a third-party provider, BrighterIR, so that you may receive information about MED by e-mail. While BrighterIR endeavours to provide you with this information on a timely basis, MED cannot guarantee that delivery by e-mail will not be delayed.
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the UK as many of our external third parties are based outside the United Kingdom’s Economic Area (UKEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the UK.
It may also be processed by staff operating outside the UK who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this policy.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
We are aware that these safeguards depend partly on the European Commission’s judgment as to the adequacy of safeguards for personal data applicable in the receiving country and this may change over time. Please contact us on dpo@MED.energy if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the UK.
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data which are:
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
As mentioned, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint) which is the United Kingdom’s authority for data protection issues. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the Information Commissioner’s Office so please contact our Data Protection Officer in the first instance at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Legitimate interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us at email@example.com.
Perform a Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
Comply with a legal or regulatory obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.
