Data processing

The personal data which may be requested shall consist solely of information which is strictly necessary for identifying and dealing with the request made by the data subject. Said information shall be processed in a way which is loyal, legal and transparent relative to the data subject. The personal data shall be collected for specific explicit and legal purposes and shall not subsequently be used in any way which is incompatible with said purposes.

The data collected from each data subject shall be appropriate, relevant and reasonable relative to the corresponding purposes in each case, and shall be updated whenever necessary.

Prior to their data being collected, the data subject shall be informed of the general categories regulated in this policy so that they may provide their express, specific and unequivocal consent for the processing of their data, in accordance with the following.

Purposes of the processing

The explicit purposes for each data processing category are set out in the information clauses included in each data collection channel (online forms, paper forms, verbal statements or informative signs and notices).

However, the personal data pertaining to the data subject shall be processed solely for the purpose of dealing with and providing an effective response to user requests which are specified together with the option, service, form or data collection system used by them.

Legal basis

Prior to processing any personal data, RECICLADOS Y DESCONTAMINACION NAVAL BUQUES SL shall obtain the data subject’s express and unequivocal consent via the inclusion of informed consent clauses in its various information collection systems.

However, in the event that consent from the data subject is not required, RECICLADOS Y DESCONTAMINACION NAVAL BUQUES SL may process the data in accordance with any specific law or regulation which authorises or requires that the data subject’s personal data be processed.


RECICLADOS Y DESCONTAMINACION NAVAL BUQUES SL shall not share or communicate data to third parties, except those data which must legally be processed in that manner. Where this is necessary, the data subject shall be notified—via the informed consent clauses included in the various channels for collecting personal data—that their data are to be shared or communicated.


As a rule, personal data shall always be gathered directly from the data subject. However, under exceptional circumstances said data may be gathered via third parties, entities or services. This method of data collection shall be communicated to the data subject via the informed consent clauses included in the various data collection channels and within a reasonable time scale of the data being collected (within a maximum period of one month).

Periods for holding data

Any information collected from the data subject shall be held for as long as is necessary to comply with the purpose of the processing. The data shall be restricted once said purpose has been fulfilled. Said restriction shall result in the data being available solely to public authorities, judges and courts, during the period stipulated by them, for the purposes of meeting any responsibilities which may arise from the data having been processed. After said period has elapsed the information shall be destroyed.

The following table outlines the legal periods for holding various types of information:
