DATA PROTECTION POLICY
Context and overview
Computer Technology Link Corp (DBA CTL) needs to gather and use certain information about individuals. These can include customers, suppliers, business contacts, employees and other people the organisation has a relationship with or may need to contact.
This policy describes how this personal data must be collected, handled and stored to meet the company’s data protection standards — and to comply with the law.
WHY THIS POLICY EXISTS
This data protection policy ensures CTL:
DATA PROTECTION LAW
The Data Protection Act 1998 describes how organisations — including CTL— must collect, handle and store personal information.
These rules apply regardless of whether data is stored electronically, on paper or on other materials.
To comply with the law, personal information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed unlawfully.
The Data Protection Act is underpinned by eight important principles. These say that personal data must:
PEOPLE, RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
This policy applies to:
It applies to all data that the company holds relating to identifiable individuals, even if that information technically falls outside of the Data Protection Act 1998. This can include:
DATA PROTECTION RISKS
This policy helps to protect CTL from some very real data security risks, including:
Everyone who works for or with CTL has some responsibility for ensuring data is collected, stored and handled appropriately.
Each team that handles personal data must ensure that it is handled and processed in line with this policy and data protection principles.
However, these people have key areas of responsibility:
GENERAL STAFF GUIDELINES
These rules describe how and where data should be safely stored. Questions about storing data safely can be directed to the IT manager or data controller.
When data is stored on paper, it should be kept in a secure place where unauthorised people cannot see it.
These guidelines also apply to data that is usually stored electronically but has been printed out for some reason:
When data is stored electronically, it must be protected from unauthorised access, accidental deletion and malicious hacking attempts:
Data is of no unless the business can make use of it. However, it is when personal data is accessed and used that it can be at the greatest risk of loss, corruption or theft:
The law requires CTL to take reasonable steps to ensure data is kept accurate and up to date.
The more important it is that the personal data is accurate, the greater the effort CTL should put into ensuring its accuracy.
It is the responsibility of all employees who work with data to take reasonable steps to ensure it is kept as accurate and up to date as possible.
SUBJECT ACCESS REQUESTS
All individuals who are the subject of personal data held by CTL are entitled to:
If an individual contacts the company requesting this information, this is called a subject access request.
Subject access requests from individuals should be made by email, addressed to the data controller at firstname.lastname@example.org. The data controller can supply a standard request form, although individuals do not have to use this.
Individuals will be charged $15 per subject access request. The data controller will aim to provide the relevant data within 14 days.
The data controller will always verify the identity of anyone making a subject access request before handing over any information.
If you have not already opted out of receiving marketing communications from CTL and would like to, you can do so at any time by emailing: email@example.com.
MANAGE YOUR CTL SUBSCRIPTIONS
If you would like to manage the marketing communications that you receive from CTL, you can do so any time by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
DISCLOSING DATA FOR OTHER REASONS
In certain circumstances, the Data Protection Act allows personal data to be disclosed to law enforcement agencies without the consent of the data subject.
Under these circumstances, CTL will disclose requested data. However, the data controller will ensure the request is legitimate, seeking assistance from the board and from the company’s legal advisers where necessary.
CTL aims to ensure that individuals are aware that their data is being processed, and that they understand:
