Política de privacidade

This privacy policy sets out 

  • what information ETP Card Processing Limited trading and each of its group companies trading as SNAP Account ("SNAP") collects from you and why; 
  • how SNAP uses and protects any information that you give; and 
  • how you can access and manage your information. 

SNAP is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should SNAP ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified, you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement. 

SNAP may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from 28/11/2023. 

If you have any questions about this policy or more generally about our use of your personal information, you may contact us by writing to us at Data Protection, SNAP c/o Certas Energy UK Limited, 1st Floor Allday House, Warrington Road, Birchwood WA3 6GR, emailing us at marketing@certasenergy.co.uk 

This policy replaces all previous versions and is correct as of 28/11/2023. We reserve the right to change the policy at any time. 

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). 

We may use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:  

  • Name 
  • Job title 
  • Contact information including postal address and email address 
  • Electronic identifiers (e.g. IP addresses) 
  • Demographic information such as postcode, preferences and interests 
  • Other information relevant to customer offers and/or surveys 
  • Where you visit our sites using fixed Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras, images of all vehicles entering and exiting the car park/site  
  • Payment details – we will only record the method of payment such as direct debit but will not store any financial information such as bank account or credit card details 
  • Transactional information, where bookings are made through your SNAP Account 
  • Information and usage patterns throughout SNAP applications and websites 
  • Where you download and use our mobile handheld device applications (Apps) such as InTruck, details of your location data which would include
    • GPS, latitude and longitude

Ordinarily, we will be the party collecting your information directly from you. However, there may be situations where this information is obtained by us from third parties. Examples of this would include: 

  • From a third-party data profiling company, where you have given your consent for that company to pass such information on to us 
  • In the case of job applicants, from a third-party recruitment agency 
  • From publicly available sources (e.g. the electoral roll) 
  • In the case of obtaining location data, from electronic communications network or service provider  

Where you operate a company or business and are a SNAP holder you will be required to supply personal data relating to your employees (where you have nominated an account contact) and your drivers.  Before supplying any information you must ensure that the data subjects are aware of the provision of the information to SNAP, the purposes for which it will be used as outlined in this notice and that you have a valid legal basis to provide the information to SNAP. 

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time. 

Likewise, it is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.

We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service. In particular, we require it for the following reasons: 

  • Internal record keeping and account management purposes (e.g. verifying your identity and producing invoices) 
  • Providing you with the service you have requested from us 
  • Monitoring, recording, and storing telephone or email communications for the purpose of internal training, audit and compliance checking, to improve the quality of our customer service and in order to meet any legal and regulatory requirements 
  • Improving our products and services, website, marketing, customer relationships and experiences 
  • Contacting you by email, SMS, phone or mail for the purpose of account administration and/or providing you with the service you have requested from us and for processing invoices and collecting payments, customising our website according to your interests and to administer and protect our business and this website (including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, system maintenance, support, reporting and hosting of data)   
  • Reviewing your job application for roles with us and potentially offering you employment as a result of that review 
  • Contacting you on the grounds of us having a legitimate interest to do so to periodically send promotional mails or contact you by telephone about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the contact details which you have provided and for market research purposes 
  • Where you give us your consent to do so, we may periodically send promotional emails or SMS messages about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the contact details which you have provided. 
  • Where using the Intruck App we will use location tracking to identify and notify you of the nearest truckstops and also relevant site promotions (this can be disabled through the app or device settings)  

In order to utilise your personal information, as set out about, we may allow third parties to process your personal information on our behalf. This is likely to be the case where, for example we: 

  • Request a third-party data profiling company to establish trends and other buying/profile information 

In order to enable SNAP to provide you with the services we will need to make certain information available to truck park operators. This would include company name, vehicle registration number and drivers name. This will enable a booking to then be made directly to a truck park operator. This data is only accessed via the SNAP portals and access is controlled through the use of passwords and firewalls. 

SNAP is part of a group of companies owned by Certas Energy UK Limited. We may share details of your account which would include the account holder’s name, contact details such as email address and phone number and account balance information for debt collection purposes. 

Where we share personal information for these purposes, we put in place controls to ensure that your personal information is only used for the purpose for which we’re sharing it. Where we want to allow third parties to process or control your personal information for reasons other than those set out above, we will inform you of this and, if necessary, seek your consent to share such information with them. Where we have asked for your consent to use your personal information for a particular purpose, this consent may be withdrawn by you at any time. Similarly, where we are using your personal information to fulfil a legitimate interest of ours, you may have a right to object to your personal information being used for a particular purpose (e.g. for direct marketing). Please see the section entitled ‘Controlling your personal information’ in section 8. 

If you contact us or we contact you, we may ask for certain information from you to confirm your identity, check our records and deal with your account efficiently and correctly. 

Company only checks - To prevent fraud, to check your identity and to prevent money laundering, we will ask our credit intelligence partners, including Creditsafe Business Solutions Ltd (and/or such other service providers as we may engage from time to time) to run certain checks on your business. These checks may involve your information being disclosed to credit reference agencies, who may keep a record of that information. Unless you have made an application for credit, your credit rating will be unaffected. In assessing any application for credit we will also share your information with our credit insurers. We will disclose details of how you conduct your account to such companies. This information may be used by other credit intelligence companies for making credit decisions about your business, you, and the people with whom you are financially associated, for fraud prevention, money laundering prevention and occasionally for tracing debtors. Information used for these purposes will include publicly available information such as corporate accounts and county court judgments. 

We may perform a check on you if you are an individual associated with a company, such as a company director. We do this in order to prevent fraud, to check your identity, to prevent money laundering and for account management purposes. Information used for these purposes will include publicly available information such as the electoral roll, county court judgments, assets registered in your name on public registers, such as the Land Registry, bankruptcy orders and repossessions. 

If we, or a fraud prevention agency, determine that you pose a fraud or money laundering risk, you could be refused the goods or service or financing that you have requested, or employment. A record of any fraud or money laundering risk will be retained by the fraud prevention agencies, and may result in others refusing to provide services, financing or employment to you. If you have any questions about this please contact us on the details below. 

We use programs such as Google Analytics to help us find out: 

  • How many people visit our websites
  • Which pages and parts of pages are most popular 
  • How long people spend in each area of the website 
  • What information people are looking for 

These insights help us understand what customers want from our website and, consequently, how we can improve the website in the future. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect non-personally identifiable information like: 

  • Browser types 
  • Operating systems 
  • Third party sites that direct you to us 
  • The time and date of a visit 

We may only process your personal information where we have a lawful basis for processing it. What this lawful basis is will depend on the type of personal information you provide, and where we want to process personal information for a specific purpose not identified in this Privacy Policy we will notify you of this at that time.

In certain circumstances, we may be required to process your personal information in order to comply with a lawful obligation on us. This may be the case, for example, where a statutory or regulatory body requests such information in accordance with their legal powers. We and fraud prevention agencies may also enable law enforcement agencies to access and use your personal data to detect, investigate and prevent crime. We also have a legitimate interest and, on occasion, a legal obligation to disclose personal information to regulatory bodies in certain circumstances, including where we have information about potential criminal acts or security threats, and may disclose information to authorities on this basis. 

*If you proactively contact us to enquire about becoming a customer, we will treat you as a current customer for the purpose of potential direct marketing to you on the grounds set out above. 

The security of your information is very important to us. As part of our commitment to keeping your data safe, our technical experts maintain physical, electronic and managerial procedures to keep safe the information we collect online. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.  

Only authorised employees and carefully checked agents, contractors and sub-contractors, who provide a particular data processing service for us, are permitted access to your data. These people will only be allowed access to your data for the purposes identified within this Privacy Policy, processing it on our behalf or for IT security and maintenance. 

Where a third party is processing your data on our behalf, we will take steps to ensure that such third party gives us commitments that it will process your data in line with all applicable data protection laws. If a third party processing your data on our behalf is located outside the UK and in a non-EU country that does not have data protection laws equivalent to those in the EU, we will always take appropriate additional steps to ensure that your personal information is kept safe and secure by those processing your data on our behalf. This will generally involve ensuring that such third party agrees to sign up to a formal legal agreement committing such party to comply with standards equivalent to those that would apply where that party to be located within the EU. Whenever fraud prevention agencies transfer your personal data outside of the EU they impose contractual obligations on the recipients of that fata to protect your personal data to the standard required in the European Economic Area. This may also require the recipient to subscribe to “international frameworks” intended to enable secure data sharing. 

Sometimes, you might wish to disclose sensitive information to us, for example, if you need a priority delivery because you are receiving medical treatment. We will only use sensitive data for the specific reason you disclosed it to us and we will take extra care to keep it secure. From time to time, we will check with you that we may continue to use that sensitive data for the specified purpose.  

The time period for which we keep information varies according to what we use the information for. Unless there is a specific legal requirement for us to keep information, we will keep your information for as long as it is relevant and useful for the purpose for which it was collected. 

Where we are using your personal information to send you marketing information we will generally retain that information for marketing purposes for two years from the point of your last order as we understand that you even if you do not buy from us on every occasion, frequently we see repeat purchases from customers in this time period. We will retain your account information for seven years in line with relevant tax and contract requirements. In the case of commercial customers, we may retain personal information relating to such individuals within such customers for a longer period of time depending on the order and contracting cycles of such customers (e.g. if a customer commonly enters into five year deals, we would retain such information for a short period beyond the time when we would expect such agreement to be renewed). 

In the case of unsuccessful job applicants, we will generally hold your CV and supporting documentation for period of twelve months from the date of application. If you wish for us to hold your CV for longer and be considered for future roles then please just let us know. 

Fraud prevention agencies can hold your personal data for different periods of time, and if you are considered to pose a fraud or money laundering risk, your data can be held for up to six years. 

Where you have given consent to us holding data for a particular purpose, that consent may be withdrawn by you at any time. You may withdraw your consent by contacting us by any method that you wish to communicate with us, including e-mail or telephone. Our usual contact details are set out on the first page of this Privacy Policy. 

You are entitled to request that we erase your personal information at any time, for example where you cease to be an active customer of ours. Whilst we will generally seek to comply with your request, there will be circumstances where we are entitled to retain such personal information (e.g. in respect of legal claims or to ensure that any activity on your account (e.g. monies owing) may be resolved). 

You may choose to restrict or control the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways: 

  • Whenever you are asked to fill in a form on the website or elsewhere, ensure that you do not tick any box requesting permission to use your personal information for specific purposes (e.g. marketing) or, in the case of ‘opt-out’ consents relating to electronic communications, ensure that you un-tick the relevant box 
  • If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing or other specific purposes and wish to change your mind 
  • If you believe that we are holding personal information which is incorrect, out of date or incomplete and wish for that to be corrected 
  • If you wish for your personal information to be erased from our systems 
  • If you wish for us to transfer your personal information to a third party (e.g. another service provider), we may provide you with your personal information which held by us for you to pass to that third party (or, in certain circumstances, we may be able to transfer that personal data to such third party directly if you wish for us to do so) 
  • In the case of the Intruck app you may adjust privacy via the app or device settings 

You have the right to: 

  • Know that information is being processed; 
  • Access information that is being processed; 
  • Rectification of information being processed; 
  • Erasure of information held on you (commonly known as the right to be forgotten) 
  • Restrict processing; 
  • Be notified about what information has been rectified, erased, and restricted; 
  • Portability (that is, to request your data be handed over to someone else); or  
  • Object to the processing of your information. 

It is important to note that this is not an absolute right to review all the information that is held about you, as there are various exceptions to this right. These include: 

  • Where personal data is kept for the purpose of preventing, detecting, or investigating offences and related matters; and 
  • Where the data is given by another person in confidence. 

You may request that we cease to contact you for direct marketing purposes at any point. We will comply with any such request. 

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 could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. 

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could 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. 

You are entitled at any point to see the personal information that we hold about you. This is called a “Subject Access Request”. If you want to make a Subject Access Request, or if you want to remove a consent, request that we cease contacting you for direct marketing purposes or request erasure or transfer of your personal information, you may do so at any time by writing to us at Data Protection, SNAP Account c/o Certas Energy UK Limited, 1st Floor Allday House, Warrington Road, Birchwood WA3 6GR, emailing us at marketing@certasenergy.co.uk. 

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties for their control unless we have your permission, need to do so in order to fulfil a contractual obligation to you or are required by law to do so. Where we do seek your permission, we will name the relevant third party at the time we seek such permission from you and any such permission shall be limited to that third party. Please note that we may provide information for processing to certain third parties as outlined in the section entitled ‘What we do with the information we gather’. 

If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect, out of date or incomplete, please write, email or call us as soon as possible, using the details set out above. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over other websites and cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.
