ACCIONA Energía hereby informs its Users that their personal data, obtained through the Channels owned by ACCIONA Energía, may only be collected for processing when they are adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the specific, explicit and legitimate scope and purposes for which they were obtained.
Whenever personal data are collected through our Channels for specific purposes, Users will be provided beforehand with clear and unequivocal information on i) the Data Controller and its contact details, ii) the specific purposes of the processing and the basis for the legitimacy thereof, iii) the recipients or categories of recipients, where applicable, as well as the existence or not of international transfers, iv) the storage criteria or periods, v) and the rights enjoyed by Users in their capacity as data subjects.
Users are also solely responsible for the information provided, and for the veracity and legality of the same.
Whenever Users provide us with data concerning third parties, either voluntarily or because we require such data to comply with any legal obligation, Users consent to the processing and declare that the data are accurate. Likewise, Users declare that they have informed the third parties of the content of the present policy and/or of the policy that applies to them and of which they have been specifically informed, and of the corresponding rights relating to the Protection of Personal Data that are enjoyed by them. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ACCIONA Energía will use its best efforts to act appropriately in relation to the processing of [the data of] such third parties.
ACCIONA Energía may process information to which it may have access as information that is lawfully accessible to the public, and in particular, public information that is available in official registers. This processing will in any event only be done if there is a legitimate basis as set out in the applicable regulations and, whenever possible or where there is a contractual relationship, you will be informed.
ACCIONA does not knowingly collect personal data from minors without the consent of their parents, guardians or legal representatives. None of the Channels made available to Users by ACCIONA are designed for or directed at minors.
If parents, guardians or legal representatives believe that their minor children have provided personal information without their consent, please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com.
ACCIONA Energía processes the personal data of Users, collected through any of our Channels, for the purposes and on the legitimate bases as set out in detail and notified for each specific processing operation; however for your information only, we have set out some of these, which are more general in scope, below:
For those services that we provide through APPs or online platforms, we process the data provided by Users in order to manage access credentials, provide assistance, answer queries, distribute our products and services, and manage the quality of the same. In other words, out of all the categories of data that may have been collected, we will only process those that allow us to be more efficient.
In this sense, we will also process the data provided to respond to requests for services and requests for information from our Users received through any of our Channels, and to be able to deal with any suggestions, claims or complaints, where applicable.
In such cases, we shall collect your data to enable us to implement the pre-contractual or contractual relationship that will allow us to provide you in an efficient manner with our products and services.
We shall also process your data whenever you subscribe to any of our channels, newsletters or news bulletins alerting you to our products and/or services, or ask us to send you commercial communications, and the data you provide us with through the cookies collected when browsing online.
Users’ informed and specific consent will form the legal basis for this part of the processing.
Any interested party can apply for job vacancies, scholarships and/or specific programmes through our Employment Channel. The data and documentation received are in this case processed to evaluate applications and, should you give us your consent, to consider you for other possible ACCIONA Energía vacancies, which may involve sharing the data with the Group company responsible for the vacancy in question.
The legal basis for the processing is the implementation of pre-contractual measures, and the consent given if you wish to opt in to other possible vacancies.
Full information on this processing is available at the following link: http://mediacdn.acciona.com/media/0bzktjyz/politica-privacidad-candidatos.pdf
We process contact details of potential customers, legal representatives of legal entities and organisations, whether public or private, analysts and investors or other concerned parties who provide us with their details, this in order to send them information of interest, to manage the commercial relationship that binds us and to be able to manage invitations or communications about events organised or sponsored by, or in which ACCIONA Energía participates.
The basis for the legitimacy of such purposes is maintaining the pre-contractual, contractual and/or commercial relationship that binds us.
Whether these legal obligations are of a commercial, fiscal, accounting or administrative nature, the legal basis authorising us to carry out this processing is compliance with legal obligations.
For some of the services that we provide, it is necessary to check on people’s identity in order to offer protection, detect and prevent fraud or other unlawful activities, unauthorised transactions, claims and other types of liabilities, and to manage quality and business-associated risks, and to investigate, where necessary, illegal activities and potential breaches of our policies and/or the terms and conditions of our services.
The legal basis is compliance with the legal obligations that apply in each case. Inter alia, and by way of an example, Law 10/2010 of 28 April on the Prevention of Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism.
ACCIONA Energía may process data obtained through Users and data obtained as the result of the provision of the contracted service or product to adapt and improve our business activity and to make a very basic analysis of its use, but always within reasonable expectations based on the relationship that you as a User of ACCIONA Energía have with us. The specifics of the data processed will be identified in the data protection clauses for each product or service.
Our facilities are equipped with cameras and video surveillance systems, with the aim of safeguarding the security of goods and people.
The legitimate basis for the processing is ACCIONA Energía’s legitimate interest in ensuring the security of its facilities.
In order to control the access of visitors, collaborators or other third parties to facilities, it is possible that, at some of our facilities, identification data may be collected.
The legitimate basis is in this case consent, as well as ACCIONA’s legitimate interest in ensuring the security of goods and people at its facilities.
ACCIONA Energía has a reporting channel, known as the Ethical Channel, in which both employees and providers or third parties can confidentially report any breach of which they are aware.
The legal basis for the processing of the data in this case is compliance with legal obligations for the investigation of suspected criminal offences.
In general, unless prior consent has been obtained, ACCIONA Energía does not use Users’ personal data for direct marketing purposes. As a User, you may at any time unsubscribe from direct marketing campaigns and object to the future processing of your personal data for such purposes by sending us an e-mail to the address of the Data Controller or by using the relevant “unsubscribe” option included in e-mails.
ACCIONA Energía does not carry out automated decision-making, including profiling, except in those cases in which Users are expressly informed of this and their express consent is requested.
In general, the data will be kept i) for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which the data were collected and ii) for the applicable limitation periods, if liabilities might be incurred as the result of the processing.
On a special basis:
Likewise, ACCIONA Energía would inform you that some of these service providers, third parties or Group companies may be located in territories outside the European Economic Area that do not provide a level of data protection comparable to that of the European Union. In such cases we transfer Users’ data with appropriate safeguards, maintaining at all times the security of such data; these may include the formulation of Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the Commission, the content of which may be examined by clicking on the following link:
Users may exercise their rights of access to or rectification, erasure or portability of their data, and/or the restriction of or objection to the processing of such data, by contacting the corresponding Data Controller, by writing to the Personal Data Protection Department at Avenida de Europa, 10, Parque Empresarial La Moraleja, 28108 Alcobendas (Madrid) or by sending the form available at the following link:
If we consider this necessary to be able to identify you, we may request a copy of a document proving your identity.
You may likewise, at any time, withdraw the consent given by writing to the above address, and by filing a complaint with the relevant data protection Supervisory Authority (https://www.agpd.es/portalwebAGPD/index-ides-idphp.ph) and, in particular, with the Spanish Data Protection Agency (www.aepd.es).
Observation: During periods of an exceptional nature such as States of Alarm or Emergency, which imply periods of confinement, or other external disturbances such as natural disasters, extreme weather conditions or wars, rights which are exercised by ordinary mail rather than through the email account will have a longer response time than usual, with response times being re-established once the recommended confinement period has been lifted.
At those functions, training sessions, meetings, initiatives, etc. (hereinafter, “Events”) that are organised or promoted by ACCIONA Energía at or away from its facilities, we may request Users to provide us with personal data in order to properly manage the Events and attendance at them. As an illustration, the subject matters that these data may be related to include but are not limited to the management of access, accreditation, means of transport and travel, accommodation, catering, delivery of related documentation, etc. This processing will be based on consent, moreover in certain cases, on the performance of a contractual relationship or statutory obligation.
This data may have to be transferred to any of the service providers or collaborating or sponsoring entities that participate or are involved in the Event, and Users will in each case be duly informed of this. As a general rule, we will only keep this information for the period of time strictly necessary to hold the Event and, where applicable, to comply with the limitation periods that may prove to be applicable.
Image: In addition to the processing done as the result of the need to ensure the security and surveillance of our facilities, it is possible that, as a consequence of Users’ participation in Events, their image, and on occasions their voice, may be captured and processed by ACCIONA Energía by means of photographs and/or video recording. Where Events entail such processing, we shall expressly inform Users. This processing may be for internal or external purposes and/or for the purposes of promoting Events; consequently the said material could be used to reproduce the Event, distribute or transform it, communicate it publicly, set a date for it and make it available in any format or medium (including, as an illustration, but not limited to exploitation through analog or digital means and online, such as social profiles, websites or intranet owned by ACCIONA GROUP entities), without the said activities conferring any right to remuneration, consideration or economic gain on Users.
This processing is based on consent, either, whenever possible, as the result of Users giving their individual, explicit consent, or from their attendance at Events for which they were informed beforehand of the processing of their image. Users’ authorisation extends worldwide, is transferable (inside and outside ACCIONA Energía) and remains in place for the entire duration of the intellectual property rights. Users may withdraw their consent at any time, through the appropriate channels.
The intellectual and industrial property rights over the materials generated on the occasion of the events and activities accrue exclusively to ACCIONA Energía.
At ACCIONA Energía we use social networks such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram and YouTube to share our content. We act in such networks as the Data Controller in charge of the data published by us, always processing such data in accordance with the terms and conditions established for each one of the social networks.
Interaction with Users through the use of such profiles or tools may involve the international transfer of data of an analytical and technical nature in relation to the Site and the social network profiles, with the data provided by Users through such profiles being processed on the servers of the social network companies.
