Prior to submitting any business or personal data to Rolec you will be required to read and accept the terms of this privacy statement.

Please read this privacy statement carefully to understand our arrangements regarding your personal data and how we capture, store, and process it.  We recommend that you visit our website from time to time, to stay up to date with any changes. Our Data Protection Policy is also available upon request - email us at for a copy.

Personal Data

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person - this can be through business to business (B2B) or business to consumer (B2C) transactions. Rolec Services Ltd (hereafter “Rolec”) does not consider personal information to include information that has been made anonymous or consolidated, so that it can no longer be used to identify a specific person.

Scope and Consent

Rolec and our supply partners recognise our moral, legal, and ethical duty to manage business and personal information in line with contractual agreements (e.g. Non-disclosure agreements and terms and conditions, etc.), our own Data Protection Policy, and the law.  We will not make your business or personal information available to any third party not bound by subcontract agreements.

This Privacy Statement sets out our collection, use, storage, disclosure, retention, manipulation, and protection of your business or personal information.  It applies to our website where the Privacy Statement appears at the bottom of the page, and to any other Rolec application, software, service, or tool (collectively "Services"), where this Privacy Statement is referred to, regardless of how you access or use them, including through mobile devices.  By using our services, and or making business enquiries with us, you are required to accept the terms of this Privacy Statement and provide consent to our collection, use, disclosure, retention, and protection of your personal information as outlined in this Privacy Statement.

Once you submit your business or personal data, Rolec becomes the data controller for that information, as per the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 (hereafter “GDPR”), Article 5(2), “the controller shall be responsible for, and be able to demonstrate compliance with the GDPR principles” (See Rolec’s Data Protection Policy).

Rolec is a registered Data Controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office (Hereafter referred to as ICO)

Rolec Services Ltd; Company Registration 02294468; ICO Registration ZA220261.

It has been a Rolec philosophy for many years to ensure privacy and data protection by design, applying the principles of data protection at the onset of any transaction or client project.

Depending on the size and complexity of a project, it may be necessary to draft a General Data Management Plan “GDMP,” to be able to demonstrate risk assessment and the implementation of adequate control measures, whilst assessing each project based on its individual merits.

Notification Of Data Breaches Or Loss

As per the requirement of GDPR, Rolec will:

  • Rolec and our supply partners will inform the data subject and the ICO, in the required format and within 72 hours of first becoming aware of any loss or breach.

If Rolec, through an investigation and risk assessment, will determine that there is no need to report a breach, we will use formal documentation to justify this decision. In assessing risk to rights and freedoms, Rolec will focus on the potential negative consequences for individuals (e.g. any emotional distress, physical and material damage that could result).

Recital 85 of the GDPR explains: “A personal data breach may, if not addressed in an appropriate and timely manner, result in physical, material or non-material damage to natural persons such as loss of control over their personal data or limitation of their rights, discrimination, identity theft or fraud, financial loss, unauthorised reversal of pseudonymisation, damage to reputation, loss of confidentiality of personal data protected by professional secrecy or any other significant economic or social disadvantage to the natural person concerned.”
