Our site uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our site. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our site and also allows us to improve our site. If the cookies used are your personal information, they will processed in accordance with this Statement and Data Protection Legislation.

In this section you will find information on internet cookies; the cookies that may be set when you visit the Dana Petroleum website; and, how to manage and delete these through your browser.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised features cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly they may not be able to take full advantage of all of the website's features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

How do we use cookies and which cookies do we use?

During the course of any visit to our site, the pages you see, along with any cookies, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit. In order to be able to provide relevant information to our visitors, we need aggregated statistical visitor data that is collected by means of cookies. To the extent that this includes personal information belonging to you, it will be processed in accordance with this Statement.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics sets a cookie in order to evaluate your use of the site and compile reports for us on activity on the site.

The cookies used on our website are described in the following table.

How to manage and delete cookies

If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by our site, or indeed any other website, you can do this through your browser settings. The “Help” function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers. You will also find details on how to delete cookies from your computer as well as more general information about cookies. For information on how to do this on the browser of your mobile phone you will need to refer to your handset manual.

Disclosure of Your Information

We may share your personal information with any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

We may share your information with selected third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to administer the working relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so, including:

  • Analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
  • If Dana Petroleum Limited or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.
  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation.

At all times, we require third parties to respect the security of your data and to treat it in accordance with Data Protection Legislation.

Storing or Transferring Your Personal Data

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, stored at, or otherwise processed at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"), as appropriate. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA, as appropriate, who work for us or for one of our suppliers. We will take all steps necessary in accordance with Data Protection Legislation to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Statement, in particular by ensuring that appropriate technical and organisational safeguards are in place for the processing.

How Long We Will Keep Your Information

We review our data retention periods regularly and will only hold your personal data for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as required by law (we may be legally required to hold some types of information), or as set out in any relevant contract we have with you. We will generally keep your information for as long as is necessary to fulfil our obligations to you after which this will be destroyed or deleted if it is no longer required for the reasons for which it was obtained. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of personal data, the purposes for which we processed the personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
