The General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) applies from 25th May 2018 and imposes increased responsibilities on data controllers and data processors to ensure personal information is held and processed lawfully and in a secure manner. It also provides enhanced rights for individuals to access their data and control how it is used.
Q&A Motoring ltd has always taken its data protection responsibilities seriously, and we consider the security of the personal information we hold to be a cornerstone of our operations. To ensure we continue to maintain the highest data protection standards, we have conducted a full review and update of our data protection policies and controls in advance of GDPR coming into force.
We are pleased to confirm that we will be fully compliant with GDPR by 25th May 2018 and outline further details below.
We have updated our data protection policy to ensure full compliance with GDPR. A copy is available on request and can also be found at the bottom of the page https://qnamotoring.com
We have updated our privacy notices to ensure that all individuals are aware how we collect, use, store, transfer and secure their personal data. These notices also inform individuals of their rights of access, correction, erasure and restriction under GDPR.
We have carried out a comprehensive analysis of the personal data we hold, including where it is stored, how it is processed and who it is shared with. We have also conducted a full review of how and why we process data. In each case, we have identified and documented the legal basis for the processing. Individuals will be informed of the relevant legal basis in their privacy notice.
We have updated our processes for dealing with SARs to ensure that all requests are processed and satisfied within the timescale prescribed by GDPR, including provisions to verify the identity of the data subject and to ensure any data is provided in a secure manner.
We have updated our data retention and erasure policy to ensure that personal information is held for no longer than is strictly necessary for the purpose for which it is being processed and that data erasure is carried out securely and compliantly.
We have also introduced new processes to ensure compliance with the ‘right to be forgotten’, which will ensure that any such requests are implemented to the fullest extent possible whilst maintaining our other ongoing legal obligations.
We have updated our processes to ensure that we identify any data breaches at the earliest possible opportunity and comply with the new reporting requirements under GDPR.
