Privacy Policy

Last updated September 26 2018

eCompany collects personal data from customers for a variety of reasons.

For example, the registrar of companies is required to collect and make public certain information about officers of companies and other entities, including directors and People with Significant Control. 

eCompany also handles the personal data of customers writing in with queries or complaints, and collects personal data from those individuals signing up to use our digital services. Further detail on how eCompany handles your personal data in line with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The information available here is an extract from the Register of Companies / Register of Disqualified Directors which are updated on a regular basis. This may mean that occasional inaccuracies occur which we correct as soon as they are drawn to our attention. If you spot something which you think might be wrong, let us know so we can, if necessary, correct the database. 

Company Information Supplied by eCompany is a registry of company information.

We carry out basic checks to make sure that documents have been fully completed and signed, but we do not have the statutory power or capability to verify the accuracy of the information that companies send to us. We accept all information that companies deliver to us in good faith and place it on the public record. The fact that the information has been placed on the public record should not be taken to indicate that eCompany has verified or validated it in any way. 

When eCompany examines accounts it only makes basic checks on them, for example to ensure that the appropriate documents are there, that they are for the correct financial year and that they have been signed. If, subsequently, we receive a complaint that the accounts do not comply with the eCompany policy in some way we have a duty to draw this to the company’s attention and, if appropriate, to ask for a set of revised accounts which do comply with the requirements.

Acceptable use of eCompany Searchable Databases

The eCompany searchable databases are designed to meet the needs of a wide range of users wishing to interrogate our information on-line. 

Due to limitations of equipment and bandwidth, they are not intended to be a source for bulk downloads.  Individuals, companies, IP addresses or blocks of IP addresses who deny or degrade service to other users by generating unusually high numbers of daily database accesses, whether generated manually or in an automated fashion, may be denied access to these services without notice.
