Please read this policy carefully so that you understand how we collect and use the personal data that you provide to us.
Who is responsible for the personal information collected on this site?
Your personal data is controlled ultimately by Shell International Limited, a company registered in England with registered number 3075807 whose registered office is at Shell Centre, London, SE1 7NA, England.
Purposes of the collection of your data and what types of data we collect and process
We collect and use personal information (including, as applicable, name, school details, job title, photos and email address) to organise and manage the Competition and to better provide you with the required services, or information. We would therefore use your personal information in order to:
• respond to queries or requests submitted by you
• process registrations, Competition entries and requests for Competition related communications submitted by you
• administer or otherwise carry out our obligations in relation to the Competition you have with us
• where applicable assess the ideas submitted as part of the Competition
• anticipate and resolve problems related to the Competition
• to contact you about future competitions organised by or with the involvement of Shell and similar to the Competition
Your personal data may be shared across the Shell companies for any of the purposes set forth above.
In addition, the collected personal data will be transferred to selected third parties for the purposes of organising the Competition (including, but not limited to, reviewers, communication providers and collaboration tool providers), which may be located outside of the Economic European Area (“EEA”) as part of the services offered to you through our site. By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EEA or one of our service providers is located in a country outside of the EEA.
These third parties will not use your personal information for any other purposes than what we have agreed with them. Shell requests those third parties to implement adequate levels of protection in order to safeguard your personal information.
We respect your personal information and therefore, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected if we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way. In addition, if you use our services while you are outside the EEA, your information may be transferred outside the EEA in order to provide you with those services.
Please be assured that we will not use your information for any of the purposes if you have indicated that you do not wish us to use your information in this way when submitting the information or at a later stage.

We may from time to time supply third parties with this non-personal or aggregated data for uses in connection with this site.
