GDPR and IIJ
You may have heard about the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which is new legislation coming into force in May 2018 in respect of data protection. The GDPR replaces the Data Protection Act and has implications for how Industrial Inkjet holds and processes personal data.
Personal data includes information about employees, ex-employees, candidates for jobs, clients and customers.
As a result of the GDPR, Industrial Inkjet has conducted an audit of the data it holds, and reviewed the policies, practices and procedures involved in managing personal data.
The Data Protection Policy sets out the various procedures and guidance in operation in terms of how we handle personal data at Industrial Inkjet, and outlines the different responsibilities people have, including information about who has overall responsibility for data protection issues.
As well as revising policies, Industrial Inkjet is obliged to issue employees and job applicants with privacy notices, outlining the data we hold and the reasons for holding it, and setting out various rights individuals have in respect of their data. The privacy notice applicable to your employment is attached for your reference.
