General Privacy Notice
As a majority of you may know, a big change towards the UK’s data privacy law will be coming into effect on the 25th May 2018
The General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR for short) is a positive change towards giving you more control over how your data is used and how you are contacted.
In line with this, we have updated our privacy notice to reflect these changes, which you can read below. It will detail how we collect, use and store your personal information.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact via email@example.com.
CLASSIC RUG CARE
GENERAL PRIVACY NOTICE
Your personal data – what is it?
“Personal data” is any information about a living individual which allows them to be identified from that data (for example a name, photographs, videos, email address, or address). Identification can be directly using the data itself or by combining it with other information which helps to identify a living individual (e.g. a list of staff may contain personnel ID numbers rather than names but if you use a separate list of the ID numbers which give the corresponding names to identify the staff in the first list then the first list will also be treated as personal data). The processing of personal data is governed by legislation relating to personal data which applies in the United Kingdom including the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR) and other legislation relating to personal data and rights such as the Human Rights Act.
Who are we?
This Privacy Notice is provided to you by Classic Rug Care which is the data controller for your data.
Other data controllers the company works with:
- HMRC and VAT
- IT and Software Contractors
- Accountant and Book-Keeping Contractors
We may need to share your personal data we hold with them so that they can carry out their responsibilities to Classic Rug Care. If we and the other data controllers listed above are processing your data jointly for the same purposes, then the company and the other data controllers may be “joint data controllers” which mean we are all collectively responsible to you for your data. Where each of the parties listed above are processing your data for their own independent purposes then each of us will be independently responsible to you and if you have any questions, wish to exercise any of your rights (see below) or wish to raise a complaint, you should do so directly to the relevant data controller.
A description of what personal data the company processes and for what purposes is set out in this Privacy Notice.
Classic Rug Care will process some or all of the following personal data where necessary to perform its tasks:
- Names, titles, and aliases, photographs;
- Contact details such as telephone numbers, addresses, and email addresses;
- Financial records
How we use sensitive personal data
- We do not process sensitive personal data.
Do we need your consent to process your sensitive personal data? N/A
Classic Rug Care will comply with data protection law. This says that the personal data we hold about you must be:
- Used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way.
- Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes.
- Relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes.
- Accurate and kept up to date.
- Kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about.
- Kept and destroyed securely including ensuring that appropriate technical and security measures are in place to protect your personal data to protect personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure.
We use your personal data for some or all of the following purposes:
- To process quotations and invoices for work carried out
- To keep you informed of the services and products available from Classic Rug Care along with any help or advice you may ask for.
- Classic Rug Care processes your personal data to carry out their legal responsibilities as a company.
Sometimes the use of your personal data requires your consent. We will first obtain your consent to that use.
What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?
Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract we have with the individual, or because they have asked you to take specific steps before entering into a contract.
Legal obligation: the processing is necessary to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations).
Consent: the individual has given clear consent for you to process their personal data for a specific purpose.
In certain circumstances, when keeping you updated on our products and services the legal basis will be Consent. We will have sent you a consent form which asked for this which you have sent back to us. If for some reason you feel you have not given your consent, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can rectify the mistake.
Sharing your personal data
This section provides information about the third parties with whom the council may share your personal data. These third parties have an obligation to put in place appropriate security measures and will be responsible to you directly for the manner in which they process and protect your personal data. It is likely that we will need to share your data with some or all of the following (but only where necessary):
- The data controllers listed above under the heading “Other data controllers the council works with”;
- Our agents, suppliers, and contractors. For example, we may ask a commercial provider to publish or distribute newsletters on our behalf, or to maintain our database software;
How long do we keep your personal data?
We will keep some records permanently if we are legally required to do so. We may keep some other records for an extended period of time. For example, it is currently best practice to keep financial records for a minimum period of 8 years to support HMRC audits or provide tax information. We may have legal obligations retain data to defend or pursue claims. In some cases, the law imposes a time limit for such claims (for example 3 years for personal injury claims or 6 years for contract claims). We will retain some personal data for this purpose as long as we believe it is necessary to be able to defend or pursue a claim. In general, we will endeavor to keep data only for as long as we need it. This means that we will delete it when it is no longer needed.
