At Group Hug Homes LTD, we take Data Privacy very seriously.
New data protection legislation is came into force in May 2018 which aims to protect people’s privacy further.
The new law applies to all public bodies, businesses and other organisations that process personal data.
The legislation comprises the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force on 25 May 2018 and the new Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018 which will come into force around the same time. This provides a single regulation across the European Union (EU) and place obligations on organisations that operate outside of the EU but provide goods or services to EU citizens.
Our company data protection principles stand at:
we will process all personal data fairly and lawfully
we will only process personal data for specified and lawful purposes
we will endeavour to hold relevant and accurate personal data, and where required, we will keep it up to date
we will not keep personal data for longer than is necessary
we will keep all personal data secure
we will endeavour to ensure that personal data is not transferred to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) without adequate protection
