Privacy Notice and Consent Policy
Date: 29 May 2018
Author: Ian Bellingham
Stored at: CPP Ltd
We take your privacy seriously and will only use your personal information to administer your account and to provide the products and services you have requested from us. We will never sell, share, or use your personal or business information other than as described here.
This policy sets out how we will use and share the information that you give us. This policy describes your relationship with CPP Ltd.
The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) describes how organisations must collect, handle, process and store personal information.
These rules apply regardless of whether data is stored electronically, on paper or on other materials.
To comply with the law, personal information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed unlawfully. GDPR is underpinned by eight important principals. These say that personal data must:
- Be processed fairly and lawfully.
- Be obtained only for specific, lawful purposes.
- Be adequate, relevant and not excessive.
- Be accurate and kept up to date.
- Not be held for any longer than is necessary.
- Processed in accordance with the rights of the data subjects.
- Be protected in appropriate ways
- Not be transferred outside the European Economic Area unless that country or territory also ensures an adequate level of protection.
We are serious about our responsibilities and this document describes our approach to data protection.
This policy helps to protect us from data security risks, including:
- Breaches of confidentiality. For instance, information being given out inappropriately;
- Failing to offer choice. For instance, all individuals should be free to choose how the company uses data relating to them; and
- Reputational damage. For instance, the company could suffer if hackers successfully gained access to sensitive data.
