What information do we collect and how is it used?
When someone visits this website, we collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns to find out things such as the number of visitors to various parts of the website.
We collect this information in a way which does not identify individuals and we do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will highlight this in advance. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
When you submit your personal details to us via our ‘contact us’ function, we will use that information to respond to your message only. Your message will be relayed to the team who will respond directly to you. We will never share, trade or sell your information to a third party for marketing purposes.

Who has access to data?
Any personal information processed via the website, i.e. the website ‘contact us’ function, will only be shared internally by Viking CCS as relevant, if access to the information is necessary to be able to respond to the enquiry. Occasionally, we may be required to share information with a competent public authority, government, regulatory or fiscal agency, where it has been deemed necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation. In all circumstances, the data will be subject to confidentiality arrangements.
How do we protect data?
When we engage suppliers and partners to process data on our behalf, we do so based on written instructions, ensuring the third party has implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of data. In all circumstances, we will ensure that the data is protected and transferred in a manner consistent with applicable data protection laws.
Should any data be transferred outside of the European Economic Area it will be protected by appropriate transfer safeguards, which guarantee an adequate level of data protection wherever your data is physically kept.
How long do we retain data?
We shall only retain data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected before securely deleting it.
