In order to protect the personal data of relevant individuals, those within our business who must process data as part of their role have been made
aware of our policies on data protection.
We have also appointed employees with responsibility for reviewing and auditing our data protection systems.
LAWFUL BASES OF PROCESSING
We acknowledge that processing may be only be carried out where a lawful basis for that processing exists and we have assigned a lawful basis against each processing activity.
Where no other lawful basis applies, we may seek to rely on the employee’s consent in order to process data.
However, we recognise the high standard attached to its use. We understand that consent must be freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous.
Where consent is to be sought, we will do so on a specific and individual basis where appropriate. Employees will be given clear instructions on the desired processing activity,
informed of the consequences of their consent and of their clear right to withdraw consent at any time.
ACCESS TO DATA
As stated above, employees have a right to access the personal data that we hold on them. To exercise this right, employees should make a Subject Access Request.
We will comply with the request without delay, and within one month unless, in accordance with legislation, we decide that an extension is required.
Those who make a request will be kept fully informed of any decision to extend the time limit.
No charge will be made for complying with a request unless the request is manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive, or unless a request is made for duplicate copies
to be provided to parties other than the employee making the request. In these circumstances, a reasonable charge will be applied.
Further information on making a subject access request is contained in our Subject Access Request policy.
The Company may be required to disclose certain data/information to any person. The circumstances leading to such disclosures include:
any employee benefits operated by third parties;
disabled individuals – whether any reasonable adjustments are required to assist them at work;
individuals’ health data – to comply with health and safety or occupational health obligations towards the employee;
for Statutory Sick Pay purposes;
HR management and administration – to consider how an individual’s health affects his or her ability to do their job;
the smooth operation of any employee insurance policies or pension plans;
to assist law enforcement or a relevant authority to prevent or detect crime or prosecute offenders or to assess or collect any tax or duty.
These kinds of disclosures will only be made when strictly necessary for the purpose.
All our employees are aware that hard copy personal information should be kept in a locked filing cabinet, drawer, or safe.
Employees are aware of their roles and responsibilities when their role involves the processing of data. All employees are instructed to store
files or written information of a confidential nature in a secure manner so that are only accessed by people who have a need and a right to access them
and to ensure that screen locks are implemented on all PCs, laptops etc when unattended. No files or written information of a confidential nature are to be
left where they can be read by unauthorised people.
Where data is computerised, it should be coded, encrypted or password protected both on a local hard drive and on a network drive that is regularly backed up.
If a copy is kept on removable storage media, that media must itself be kept in a locked filing cabinet, drawer, or safe.
Employees must always use the passwords provided to access the computer system and not abuse them by passing them on to people who should not have them.
Personal data relating to employees should not be kept or transported on laptops, USB sticks, or similar devices, unless prior authorisation has been received.
Where personal data is recorded on any such device it should be protected by:
ensuring that data is recorded on such devices only where absolutely necessary.
using an encrypted system — a folder should be created to store the files that need extra protection and all files created or
moved to this folder should be automatically encrypted.
ensuring that laptops or USB drives are not left where they can be stolen.
Failure to follow the Company’s rules on data security may be dealt with via the Company’s disciplinary procedure.
Appropriate sanctions include dismissal with or without notice dependent on the severity of the failure.
THIRD PARTY PROCESSING
Where we engage third parties to process data on our behalf, we will ensure, via a data processing agreement with the third party,
that the third party takes such measures in order to maintain the Company’s commitment to protecting data.
INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS
The Company does not transfer personal data to any recipients outside of the EEA except in correspondence on our shared office 365 cloud with our sister
company Selamedical in Israel where the owners are located.
REQUIREMENT TO NOTIFY BREACHES
All data breaches will be recorded on our Data Breach Register. Where legally required, we will report a breach to the Information Commissioner within 72 hours of discovery.
In addition, where legally required, we will inform the individual whose data was subject to breach.
More information on breach notification is available in our Breach Notification policy.
New employees must read and understand the policies on data protection as part of their induction.
All employees receive training covering basic information about confidentiality, data protection and the actions to take upon identifying a potential data breach.
The nominated data controller/auditors/protection officers for the Company are trained appropriately in their roles under the GDPR.
All employees who need to use the computer system are trained to protect individuals’ private data, to ensure data security, and to understand the consequences to them as
individuals and the Company of any potential lapses and breaches of the Company’s policies and procedures.
The Company keeps records of its processing activities including the purpose for the processing and retention periods in its HR Data Record.
These records will be kept up to date so that they reflect current processing activities.
