Under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) personal data is defined as:
“any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.
Nu-Wey is primarily an innovation consultancy within the energy efficiency sector, assisting companies and partners in the analysis of their products, testing and analysis, ultimately providing a solution for the end user.
When we are developing a product or process that is innovative, we will carry out relevant testing and trial the product. The data that is collected is analysed and performance conclusions are drawn.
As every product or process is different we look to develop them in best possible way. Each product is assessed and trialled individually. In order to carry out trials we need to collect some of your personal information and share this with other organisations. We will only collect and use personal data in ways that are described here, in a way that is consistent with our objectives for the product or process and your rights under the law.
Nu-Wey is committed to an operating philosophy based on openness in communication, integrity in serving our customers, fairness and concern for our employees and responsibility to the communities within which we operate. Our vision is to exceed customer expectations for quality, safety, sustainability, cost, delivery and value.
