While RETN already had a consistent level of data protection and security across our organisation, we have introduced new measures to ensure compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) that came into force on 25 May 2018:
Information Audit — RETN carried out an audit of information previously held and ensured that it was compliant with the new regulations, including the purging of all marketing mail lists that were not clearly opted in to, retaining only contact information required for the support of our services to existing clients.
Data Protection — our main policy and procedure document for data protection has been revised to meet the standards and requirements of the GDPR. Accountability and governance measures are in place to ensure that we understand and adequately disseminate and evidence our obligations and responsibilities; with a dedicated focus on privacy and the rights of individuals.
Data Retention and the right to “be forgotten” — we have updated our internal processes to ensure that we meet the 'data minimization' and 'storage limitation' principles and that personal information is stored, archived and destroyed in accordance with our obligations. We have procedures in place to meet the new 'Right to be forgotten' obligation.
Data Breaches — our procedures ensure that we have safeguards in place to identify, assess, investigate and report any personal data breach as early as possible. Our procedures have been explained to all employees.
International Data Transfers and Third-Party Disclosures — where RETN stores or transfers personal information outside the EU, we have robust procedures in place to secure the integrity of the data.
Subject Access Request (SAR) — we created a SAR procedure to accommodate the revised 30-day timeframe for providing the requested information.
Obtaining Consent — we have revised our consent mechanisms for obtaining personal data, ensuring that individuals understand what they are providing, why and how we use it and giving clear, defined ways to consent to us processing their information.
Direct Marketing — we have revised the wording and processes for direct marketing, including clear opt-in mechanisms for marketing subscriptions; a clear notice and method for opting out and providing unsubscribe features on all subsequent marketing materials.
Data Protection Office — RETN have appointed the Data Protection Officer and created a data privacy team to review and update our internal processes and policies for ensure compliance with new data protection regulations/changes. The team are responsible for promoting awareness of the GDPR across the organisation, assessing our GDPR compliance, identifying any gap areas and implementing the new policies, procedures and measures.
