GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 and is new EU legislation that applies from 25th May 2018. The regulation gives individuals new rights surrounding the collection, recording, storage, appropriate processing and disposal of personal information. Being EU wide the regulation is designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe and demands far greater protection obligations from organisations. All organisations within the UK will still be required to adhere to the Data Protection Act 1998 in addition to this new regulation.
Individuals have the following rights which will be detailed in our Data Protection Policy:
The right to be informed The right of access
The right to rectification The right to erasure
The right to restricted access The right to portable data
The right to object The right not to be subject to automated decision-making
As custodians of such data, GDPR affects not only Alexandra Sports Ltd and its staff and customers but all providers/third-party suppliers and we are currently working towards full compliance by reviewing all company policies, processes, security measures and records currently held.
Whilst undertaking this review we shall be contacting all companies connected with Alexandra Sports Ltd, who are required to hold any personal information, to gain assurance of their own GDPR compliance.
We would ask for our customers and all related companies to work with us as swiftly as possible to ensure we are compliant in good time – if you require any information for yourself and/or your organisation on GDPR you can visit: www.ico.org.uk
If any customer has concerns or complaints as to how we have handled their personal data they may lodge a complaint with the UK’s data protection regulator, the ICO, who can be contacted through their website at https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/ or by writing to Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
