Privacy Policy

What is the EU GDPR?


General Data Protection Regulation is an EU data protection directive, introducing a series of ‘data subject’ rights that were introduced in 2018 to ensure that all EU residents have control over their personal data – The GDPR still affects the UK businesses, despite our decision to leave the EU.

Why is the GDPR so important?

Many smaller businesses across London presume the GDPR doesn’t apply to them. This is not the case. The GDPR’s regulations state that any business that is involved in the handling or processing of personal data would be subject to the same financial penalty as large businesses.

IOTAC LTD embraces the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into force in EU member states from May 2018.

In essence, the GPDR puts into practice its six underlying principles to protect the individual and the personally identifiable information (PII).

Lawfulness, fairness and transparency. Lawful: Processing must meet the tests described in GDPR [article 5, clause 1(a)]. Fair: What is processed must match up with how it has been described. Transparency: Explain to the subject what data processing will be done.

Purpose limitations: Define what it is being used for and not be used for other purposes.
Data minimisation: Only store what is required.
Accuracy: The data is accurate
Storage limitations: No longer than necessary.
Integrity and confidentiality: It is held securely and, if stored online or in the cloud, it is encrypted by default.
