1. Data protection principles
 

The HDVBA is committed to processing data in accordance with its responsibilities under the GDPR.

Article 5 of the GDPR requires that personal data shall be:

  1. processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals;

  2. collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes;

  3. adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;

  4. accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay;

  5. kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes subject to the implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals; and

  6. processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.”

  2. The Responsible Person shall take responsibility for the HDVBA’s ongoing compliance with this policy.

  3. This policy shall be reviewed at least annually.

  4. The HDVBA does not need to register with the Information Commissioner’s Office as an organisation that processes personal data.
     

3. Lawful, fair and transparent processing
 

  1. To ensure its processing of data is lawful, fair and transparent, the HDVBA shall maintain a Register of Systems.

  2. The Register of Systems shall be reviewed at least annually.

  3. Individuals have the right to access their personal data and any such requests made to the HDVBA shall be dealt with in a timely manner.
     

4. Lawful purposes
 

  1. All data processed by the HDVBA must be done on one of the following lawful bases: consent, contract, legal obligation, vital interests, public task or legitimate interests.

  2. The HDVBA notes the appropriate lawful basis in the Register of Systems.

  3. Where consent is relied upon as a lawful basis for processing data, evidence of opt-in  consent shall be kept with the personal data.

  4. Where communications are sent to individuals based on their consent, the option for the individual to revoke their consent should be clearly available and systems should be in place to ensure such revocation is reflected accurately in the HDVBA’s systems. 
     

5. Data minimisation
 

  1. The HDVBA shall ensure that personal data are adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.

  2. The HDVBA will retain data in paper and electronic form solely for the purpose of managing the objectives and business of the Association. When retained in electronic form it will only use MS Office applications.
     

6. Accuracy
 

  1. The HDVBA shall take reasonable steps to ensure personal data is accurate.

  2. Where necessary for the lawful basis on which data is processed, steps shall be put in place to ensure that personal data is kept up to date.

  3. The HDVBA will, wherever possible, use MS Office applications to retain personal data.
     

7. Archiving / removal
 

  1. To ensure that personal data is kept for no longer than necessary, the HDVBA shall delete all records when requested by the data subject.

  2. The archiving policy states that no data will be archived and any data no longer required will be deleted from all our systems other than paper records.

 

8. Security
 

  1. The HDVBA shall ensure that personal data is stored securely using modern software that is kept-up-to-date. 

  2. Access to personal data shall be limited to personnel who need access and appropriate security should be in place to avoid unauthorised sharing of information.

  3. When personal data is deleted this should be done safely such that the data is irrecoverable.

  4. Appropriate back-up and disaster recovery solutions shall be in place.
     

9. Breach
 

In the event of a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data, the HDVBA shall promptly assess the risk to people’s rights and freedoms and if appropriate report this breach to the ICO.
