GDPR

You may already have heard about the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will come into force on 25 May 2018. It represents one of the biggest changes to data protection rules in two decades. GDPR is Europe’s new framework for data protection. The EU’s GDPR website explains that the legislation is designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe and give greater protection and rights to individuals. This means that all businesses that hold and process personal information will need to have proper processes and policies in place for handling this type of data. That includes our business – and your data.

What we are doing about GDPR

We have always taken managing data seriously as part of best practice. In line with GDPR, we have been working across all areas of our organisation, and with our suppliers, to make further improvements ahead of 25 May 2018. 

To ensure we are compliant with GDPR, we will be:

  • Updating our processes and policies for privacy and data protection

  • Training all staff on the new regulations

  • Removing old and obsolete records

  • Improving IT security and testing

 

Information we hold about you

  • To provide services and information to you as a client or contact, we need to hold and process personal data.

 

Rights you have concerning your personal data

The Information Commissioner’s Office website lists the data protection rights for individuals under GDPR. They include:

  1. The right to be informed

  2. The right of access

  3. The right to rectification

  4. The right to erasure

  5. The right to restrict processing

  6. The right to data portability

  7. The right to object
