Select Legal Systems Limited has updated its Privacy Notice to reflect its compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation which comes into force on 25-5-18.
Steve Dixon, co-owner and Director of Select Legal Systems said, “We have assessed the six legal grounds available to us under GDPR for processing personal data, taken advice direct from the ICO, and we have come to the conclusion that the most appropriate for us as a company are ‘contract’ for the purposes of delivering our software and services to our clients, and ‘legitimate interests’ for keeping people up-to-date with marketing, sales and other sector related business messages.”
There are six legal grounds under GDPR for processing personal data:
- Consent – the individual has given clear consent for you to process their personal data for a specific purpose.
- Contract – if you have a contract with the data subject.
- Compliance – for compliance with a legal obligation.
- Vital interests – you can process the personal data if it’s necessary to protect someone’s life.
- Public task – for public interest
- Legitimate interests – if you have a genuine and legitimate reason for processing an individual’s personal data (including commercial benefit).
Please note that in line with Privacy and Electronic Communictions Regulations (PECR) that currently sits alongside GDPR, soon to be replaced by the new E-Privacy Regulation (which is still being debated and finalised at Government level) Select Legal Systems Limited will NOT be asking their business contacts for ‘consent’ regarding the sending of marketing and sales material and messaging. However, as is correct under the current PECR and also GDPR, all data subjects have the right to opt-out from receiving correspondence at any time by emailing Select Legal Systems at firstname.lastname@example.org . Also at the foot of every eshot communication Select’s marketing team will include a user-friendly unsubscribe link for the recipient’s convenience.
Select Legal Systems will continue to review and update their privacy notice regularly, particularly in light of the pending finalisation of the e-Privacy regulation.
