Data Protection Policy

By Gr8Web.biz

Our Company Data Protection Policy refers to our commitment to treat information of employees, customers, stakeholders and other interested parties with the utmost care and confidentiality.

With this policy, we ensure that we gather, store and handle data fairly, transparently and with respect towards individual rights.


Scope

This policy refers to all parties (employees, job candidates, customers, suppliers etc.) who provide any amount of information to us.

Who is covered under the Data Protection Policy?

Employees of our company and its subsidiaries must follow this policy. Contractors, consultants, partners and any other external entity are also covered. Generally, our policy refers to anyone we collaborate with or acts on our behalf and may need occasional access to data.


Policy elements

As part of our operations, we need to obtain and process information. This information includes any offline or online data that makes a person identifiable such as names, addresses, usernames and passwords, digital footprints, photographs etc.

Our company collects this information in a transparent way and only with the full cooperation and knowledge of interested parties. Once this information is available to us, the following rules apply.


Our data will be:

Accurate and kept up-to-date

Collected fairly and for lawful purposes only

Processed by the company within its legal and moral boundaries

Protected against any unauthorizsed or illegal access by internal or external parties


Our data will not be:

Communicated informally

Stored for more than a specified amount of time

Transferred to organizations, states or countries that do not have adequate data protection policies

Distributed to any party other than the ones agreed upon by the data’s owner (exempting legitimate requests from law enforcement authorities)


In addition to ways of handling the data the company has direct obligations towards people to whom the data belongs. Specifically we must:

Let people know which of their data is collected

Inform people about how we’ll process their data

Inform people about who has access to their information

Have provisions in cases of lost, corrupted or compromised data

Allow people to request that we modify, erase, reduce or correct data contained in our databases


Actions

To exercise data protection we’re committed to:

Restrict and monitor access to sensitive data

Develop transparent data collection procedures

Train employees in online privacy and security measures

Build secure networks to protect online data from cyberattacks

Establish clear procedures for reporting privacy breaches or data misuse

Include contract clauses or communicate statements on how we handle data

Establish data protection practices (document shredding, secure locks, data encryption, frequent backups, access authorisation etc.)
