Individuals can include customers, suppliers, contractors, business contacts, employees and other people the organisation has a relationship with, or may need to contact.

The General Data Protection Regulation describes how organisations across all European Union member states must collect, handle 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 defines personal data as any information that can directly or indirectly identify an individual and includes: forename, surname, title, photo, address, email address, IP address, location data, cookies, profiling and analytics data.
The Regulation also places much stronger controls on the processing of special categories of personal data including: race, religion, political opinions, trade union membership, sexual orientation, health information, biometric data and genetic data.
This policy applies to:
* The head office of this company
* All staff and volunteers we work with
* All contractors, suppliers and other people working on our behalf
Directly when you contact us by telephone, email, or completed and submit any form that is included on our website.
We may also have personal data about you, if you:
* Have met us in person.
* If you are a supplier.
* If you are a contractor, former-contractor, employee or former employee.
* You have established a connection with us online, using third-party social media websites that we have accounts with.
Data Protection Risks:
This policy also helps to protect this company from some very real data security risks, including:
Breaches of confidentiality. For example, information being given out inappropriately.
Failing to offer choice. For example, all individuals should be free to choose how the company uses data relating to them.
Damage to reputation. For example, this site owner could suffer if hackers successfully gained access to sensitive data.
The only people able to access data covered by this policy should be those who need it for their work. Data should not be shared informally. When access to confidential information is required, staff and contractors can request it from the owner of this website.
Staff and contractors should keep all data secure, by taking sensible precautions and following the guidelines below:
In particular, strong passwords must be used and they should never be shared.
Personal data should not be disclosed to unauthorised people, either within the company or externally.
Data should be regularly reviewed and updated if it is found to be out of date. If no longer required, it should be deleted and disposed of.
Staff and contractors should request help from the owner of this website if they are unsure about any aspect of data protection.
The owner of this website will ensure that all our staff and contractors are made aware of these guidelines, read them, and help them understand their responsibilities when handling data.
When data is stored on paper, it should be kept in a secure place where unauthorised people cannot see it. These guidelines also apply to data that is usually stored digitally but has been printed out for some reason.
We do not share your personal data with any third parties without explicit consent, however personal data is of no value to us unless we can make use of it for our day-to-day core business purpose of building websites and associated services for clients.
When working with personal data, our staff and contractors should ensure the screens of their computers are always locked when left unattended.
Personal data should not be shared informally. In particular, it should never be sent by email, as this form of communication is not secure.
If possible data should be encrypted before being transferred electronically.
Personal data should never be transferred outside of the European Economic Area.
The law requires us to take reasonable steps to ensure data is kept accurate and up to date. It is the responsibility of our staff and contractors, who work with data, to ensure it is kept as accurate and up to date as possible. Clients should contact us if they feel any information we hold is out of date.
All individuals who are the subject of personal data held by us are entitled to:
