GDPR Compliance Statement
New data protection legislation came into force in May 2018 which aims to protect people’s privacy further. The new law applies to all public bodies, businesses and other organisations that process personal data. The legislation comprises the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force on 25 May 2018 and the new Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018. They provide a single regulation across the European Union (EU) and place obligations on organisations that operate outside of the EU but provide goods or services to EU citizens. Data Protection Legislation regulates the capture, storage and use of information about individuals, known as “personal data”.
Floatex Separations Ltd places a high importance on information security, and operates to comply fully with the Data Protection Legislation
Our GDPR Principles
The principles under the General Data Protection Regulations require that personal data, including that of our employees and third parties, is:
- Process all personal data fairly and lawfully
- Only process personal data for specified and lawful purposes
- Endeavor to hold relevant and accurate personal data, and where practical, we will keep it up to date
- Only keep personal data for as long as is necessary
- Keep all personal data secure
- Endeavor to ensure that personal data is not transferred to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) without adequate protection
To achieve compliance, Floatex will ensure that:
- There are individuals in the organisation who can provide advice and assistance on the issues arising under the Data Protection Legislation
- Everyone managing and handling personal data understands that they are responsible for following good protection practice.
- Everyone managing and handling personal data is appropriately trained
- Queries about handling personal data are promptly dealt with
- Procedures for handling personal data are clearly described, and
- A regular review is made of the way personal data is managed
The responsibility for compliance primarily rests with Floatex, however, every employee has an individual responsibility to ensure compliance and can be legally accountable.
This policy will be reviewed annually to ensure that it reflects current legislation and regulations.
