Section 1 – Collection of Data

Upminster Containers Limited will be the data controller and the contact details for the company are:

Data Protection Officer/Managing Director: Maria Hadden


The data processor is Upminster Containers Limited. The data held is used for the purposes of customer service and administration, the provision of Container/Unit hire and sales related information, customer research and fraud prevention.

Collected data will be stored within secure electronic accounting management systems, with the system being dependant on the nature of information. Upminster Containers Limited will store any correspondence from you in a customer correspondence recording system.  Additional systems are used to process and store supporting information such as correspondence and telephone call recordings.


Section 2 – Processing of Data

Personal data will be stored for the shortest time necessary in order to manage our Container/Unit hire and sales, including payments, account management and enquiries. Our retention timescales are quoted in our Privacy Policy.

Under the GDPR you have the following rights to request information from the company:

  • Right of access to the data (Subject Access Request)
  • Right for the rectification of errors
  • Right to erasure of personal data (please note, this is not an absolute right)
  • Right to restrict of processing or to object to processing
  • The right to portability.

Processing isn’t based on receiving your consent; however, we must inform you that you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. If your consent is withdrawn, your account will have to be closed and any Container/Unit hire terminated.

If we are to process the personal data we hold for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected, then we will provide you with information on what that other purpose is prior to that further processing taking place. The extra information will include any relevant further information as referred to above including the right to object to that further processing.

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (in the UK that is the Information Commissioners Office).
