Personal data disclosure

We will not sell, trade or distribute your personal data for commercial purposes.

We do, however, reserve the right to disclose your personal data as required by law or contract, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights (such as to verify or enforce our applicable policies or detect and protect against technical or security vulnerabilities), and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, request from a regulator or any other legal process served on TAQA or its group of companies. This could include governmental bodies, financial institutions or third party or affiliate companies that perform functions on our behalf or provide services to us, including hosting or analysing our Site or processing website transactions with servers in different jurisdictions.

In the event of a reorganization of our business, such a transaction may involve the disclosure of your personal data to other entities within the TAQA group of companies or the new owner of the business, in which case, we may notify you if required under applicable data protection laws.

Your personal data may also be processed by TAQA, its group companies and the third parties described above, outside of the country in which you are based. Where the data protection regulator in your home country has not issued an adequacy decision in relation to the jurisdiction where your personal data is to be processed, we will ensure that there are adequate mechanisms in place to protect your personal data in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws, including, where applicable, through use of data transfer agreements implementing standard data protection clauses. You can receive further information about the data transfer agreements that concern your personal data, and the mechanisms we implement to protect your personal data, by contacting us.

Personal data security and safeguards and data retention

Transmission of data via the web or electronically is not always secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data which is transmitted to our Site from third-party sites.

We can, however, confirm that we have implemented appropriate policies, procedures, and both physical and electronic security safeguards to keep your personal data secure once it is received by us. These measures vary depending on the nature and sensitivity of the personal data and may include encryption and other forms of security measures aligned with global standards and best practices. These efforts are undertaken to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, unlawful processing, misuse, accidental loss, involuntary disclosure, modification, destruction or damage.

If you would like more information about the safeguards we have put in place or at any point you suspect or become aware of a data breach, please contact us immediately at

We will retain your personal data for as long as required to provide the service requested. We may retain your personal data beyond the minimum retention period to comply with any legal and/or regulatory obligations to which we are subject or in connection with any legal action or investigation involving TAQA.
