Don Ruffles Limited Privacy and Data Protection Policy

Respecting and protecting the privacy rights of those whose data we hold in the course of our business is very important to us at Don Ruffles Limited. To ensure we are effective in delivering this policy, we have been guided by advice from the Information Commissionerís Office and used compliance with the General Data Protection Regulations as a framework.

We have conducted an information audit to understand what personal data is held by us, by those acting on our behalf (e.g: payroll), and who, internally or externally, has access to it (e.g: IT support).

We have considered whether we need to retain that data, for what purpose it is held, and whether that purpose is lawful within the Regulations.

We have then considered the security of the data, access control, and the frequency of password changes.

We have considered whether the individual has given us consent, for what purposes, and whether further consents are required.

We have considered how we will respond in a timely fashion to requests for information and to requests under the right to be forgotten.

We have considered our response to a loss or theft of either hard-copy or electronic data.

As a consequence of the above reviews, new operating procedures have been put in place with scheduled reviews to ensure that the system remains current and compliant and to continually improve it through a systematic process.
