Elgas is committed to compliance with local data protection and privacy legislation in all jurisdictions in which it operates. We will use our reasonable endeavours to ensure that all information held by Elgas is gathered, processed, used, disclosed and disposed of in accordance with such legislation.

Elgas recognises the responsibility it has to all its employees, customers and suppliers, to maintain the highest standards of integrity and efficiency when handling personal data. We recognise that applying such standards is important to those whose data we handle, the successful operation of our business and contributes to maintaining confidence in Elgas, its practices and procedures.
A key building block of personal data protection and privacy legislation is using data relating to employees, customers and suppliers for the purpose or purposes of which they are aware and would reasonably expect. It is this building block which underpins the following principles and commitments to which Elgas adheres.

- credit listing
and for the secondary purposes of:
- marketing activities
- marketing planning

- customer and market research
A person’s personal information may be disclosed to our agents, distributors, contractors and related entities, to facilitate the primary and secondary purposes mentioned above, or as otherwise required by law. When required by law, this information will be released to the relevant authorities upon proper application.
All customers will have the opportunity to opt out from receiving marketing material including those sent by email, phone, fax and post.
3. Data Quality
Elgas will take reasonable steps to ensure that information collected on its customers is accurate, complete and up-to-date.

Upon request, Elgas will provide an individual with access to or advice on the personal information held on that person by Elgas. A fee may be charged for providing access, although no fee is payable upon application.
