Your rights under Data Protection Law
We operate under the Data Protection Act 1998 (‘DPA’) as replaced by the European General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) from 25 May 2018.
The DPA and GDPR apply to ‘personal data’ we process and the data protection principles set out the main responsibilities We are responsible for.
We must ensure that personal data shall be:
a) processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner;
b) collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes;
c) adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;
d) accurate and where necessary kept up to date;
e) kept for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed. We operate a data retention policy that ensures we meet this obligation. We only retain personal data
for the purposes for which it was collected and for a reasonable period thereafter where there is a legitimate business need or legal obligation to do so. For detail of our current retention policy contact our Data Protection Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
f) processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
We ensure lawful processing of personal data by obtaining consent; or where there is a contractual obligation to do so in providing appropriate products and services; or where processing the data is necessary for the purposes of Our legitimate interests in providing appropriate products and services.
In the majority of cases We process personal data based on Your contract with the Us. In other cases, We process personal data only where there are legitimate grounds for so doing.
To meet its Data Protection obligations, We have established comprehensive and proportionate governance measures.
We have our own dedicated Data Protection Officer to oversee data protection compliance across the organisation through:
a) implementing appropriate technical and organisational measures including internal data protection policies, staff training, internal audits of processing activities, and reviews of internal HR policies.
b) maintaining relevant documentation on processing activities.
c) implementing measures that meet the principles of data protection by design and data protection by default including data minimisation, pseudonymisation, transparency, deploying the most up-to-date data security protocols and using data protection impact assessments across Our organisation and in any third party arrangements.
Your rights under Data Protection Law
You have a right to receive a copy of the personal data that We hold about You. Under the DPA We have the discretion to make a charge of £10.00 towards the cost of administration, although currently We do not charge for this service.
To obtain a copy of the personal information We hold on You, please write to Us at the address below or ring Us on 01234 836 352 and provide Us with Your details or ask for a Subject Access Request form.
Under the DPA you also have a number of additional rights in respect of your personal data. The Information Commissioner’s website provides guidance on these at www.ico.org.uk

1. The right to be informed about how We use personal data.

2. The right of access to the personal data we hold. In most cases this will be free of charge and must be provided within one month of receipt.

4. The right to erasure of personal data, but only in very specific circumstances, typically where the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected or processed; or, in certain cases where we have relied on consent to process the data, when that consent is withdrawn and there is no other legitimate reason for continuing to process that data; or when the individual objects to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing.
5. The right to restrict processing, for example while we are reviewing the accuracy or completeness of data, or deciding on whether any request for erasure is valid. In such cases we shall continue to store the data, but not further process it until such time as we have resolved the issue.
6. The right to data portability which, subject to a number of qualifying conditions, allows individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services.
7. The right to object in cases where processing is based on legitimate interests, where Our requirement to process the data is overridden by the rights of the individual concerned; or for the purposes of direct marketing (including profiling); or for processing for purposes of scientific / historical research and statistics, unless this is for necessary for the performance of a public interest task.
8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
