What personal data we collect
UK Business Energy Broker considers there to be either a contractual or legitimate business interest to maintain contact with current clients, partners and suppliers. We only collect and process personal data we require to provide a specific service, which may include the following personally identifiable information: name, company name, e-mail address, telephone number and address (collectively called Contact Information). In addition, if you contact us directly, we may receive additional information, the contents of any message and/or attachments you send us, and any other information you choose to provide. The personal information you are asked to provide, and the reasons you are asked to provide it, will be made clear to you when we request your personal information.

How we handle your personal data
UK Business Energy Broker uses your data to provide specific services, and makes this data available only to trusted third parties relating to a specific service i.e. energy aggregators/suppliers for energy contracts.

How we protect your personal data
UK Business Energy Broker takes reasonable precautions, utilising encryption (#4) and two-factor authentication (#5) to protect data in our possession from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access.

How long we process your personal data
