Privacy policy

On Find an Engineer, we collect the following data:

From engineers and companies:

  • Company information: such as the company name, logo, the type of work your company does, photos that you submit, location and contact details of your company, opening hours, languages spoken at your company, and the number of IStructE members of certain grades working at your company.  This is all information submitted by you on the Find and Engineer website, and relates to your company rather than any individual.  It will be displayed in your company listing.
  • Contact name and email address for your company.  This will be displayed in your listing.
  • Membership number of an Institution member who works at the company – this will not be displayed.  We use this to verify that we are only listing companies associated with our members (who have reached certain grades).
  • Email address and password.  This is to create your account on the Find an Engineer site.

We collect and use the above data for the purpose of fulfilling our contract with you.

From enquirers who use the service to contact a listed engineering company:

  • First name and last name.  This will be displayed in messages that you send through the site to companies.
  • Email address and password. This is to create your account on the Find an Engineer site. Your email address will not be visible to any other Find an Engineer users.
  • You have the option to add details about your location, but this will not be displayed to companies or any other website users.

We collect and use the above enquirer data on the grounds of legitimate interest; we can thereby operate the site and help match enquirers with engineers.

We do not share Find an Engineer data with any third parties, or with any companies you have not chosen to contact.  We will keep Find an Engineer data for one year. If you would like to delete your account before that time, please contact us on the details below.

For more information on how the Institution of Structural Engineers uses and looks after your data, please see our main privacy policy.
