Data collection and purpose specification
When you request information through this site, we need to know your e-mail address or, where you wish it to be sent by post, your name and postal address. We use this to send to you the information you request in the form that you require. We will not pass your details to anyone else outside the BP Group of Companies without your permission. Since the BP Group of Companies operates globally, the information you submit may be transferred outside of the European Economic Area or outside the country in which you are domiciled. This and all other transmissions will remain secure and under our sole control. By clicking the 'I accept' button where you offer your information in return for services, you consent to such a transfer. You may also unsubscribe to services where you have previously opted to do so. Data is held for a period of two years for the purposes of improving services offered after which time it is de-personalised and non-identifiable. We do not collect any additional information about you other than that outlined above. If we wish to use your personal data for a new purpose, we will offer you the means to consent to this new purpose by indicating in a box at the point on the site where personal data is collected.
