European Union data protection law has been updated on the 25th May 2018 with the introduction of a new EU level General Data Protection Regulation “GDPR”. This will replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive and all Member State data protection laws. Data protection law requires organisations to handle personal information securely and gives individuals rights in respect to their own data. The new EU law reflects the need to update the legal system for data protection so it is appropriate for our modern information society.
One of many changes in the law relates to the information that must be provided by organisations to individuals when their personal details are collected. The provision of this information means that any consent given to collect and use personal data is appropriately informed. As we hold your contact details from yourself or another party we are informing you of our Data Policy.
What information will we use?
The information you provide yourself when you contact Homers Driving School is necessary so that your information can enable us to find the correct instructor, which course you require or which goods or services you require. If you do not provide this information, we will not be able to help you.
How will your information be used?
As a Data Controller we are legally required to process your personal information fairly and in a transparent manner.
When we can use your information?
We collect and use your information in the following situations:
The period for which we will keep your information
We will keep your information for as long as is necessary for us to fulfil the purposes of your requirements. In that period your information will be kept and securely stored anonymously. Once your enquiry, goods or service has been organised, we will ensure that your personal data is no longer retained.
Who will we share your information with?
The recipients of your personal data are limited exclusively to the people who have a need to know such information to perform their responsibilities to you and your needs. We do not sell your personal information to any third parties. We promise we’ll never share your details with anyone else.
Transferring your information internationally
Your personal information will not be transferred internationally. All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers situated in the EU.
What are my rights under data protection legislation?
Data Protection Legislation provides you with certain rights when it comes to the processing of your information. These rights include the right to access your information, to update incorrect information, to delete your information, to restrict processing of your information, to transfer your information and to object to its processing.
You can find further information on your data protection rights and which apply to you from the Information Commission’s Office (the “ICO”) at www.ico.org.uk
