The GDPR provides the following rights for individuals:
Where any subject access request is made there is a requirement to prove identity before any information is divulged. This may involve physical presence with accompanying ID.
Where a request to "Be forgotten" is made that can only be complied with if there are no other legal frameworks that overrule GDPR. Examples would be HMRC, FCA, etc.
If you are using Neetrix to store information about your clients, then we are your data processor under GDPR. Access to your data is restricted by the users you allow access to as well as our support and engineering staff that need access in order to provide the relevant services to you.
None of your client data is exported from the system by Neetrix engineers unless necessary for testing and our policies are in place to ensure that this data is immediately removed after any tests are completed. Your client data is never shared or given access to anyone else within or outside of Neetrix without your express permission to do so.
To assist with your breach policies as well as ours, we have added an audit log for anyone that exports data from Neetrix such as exporting information to Excel or CSV files. This will include which staff account requested the data, what type of data was exported, the date the export was downloaded and which IP address if available.
All transfers of your business data is encrypted between our servers and the devices you use to access our software. We can not be responsible for the security of your devices.
Data you remove in Neetrix is marked so immediately meaning that no staff can access it. In most cases it can be restored by Neetrix engineers in the event of user error, but it is physically removed from the database after 30-60 days. It will continue to remain on off-site backups. The removed data will not be restored if it was removed over 24 hours before any disaster recovery was necessary.
The GDPR is going live on 25th May 2108 and the UK Data Privacy Bill does not have a final date as yet. Therefore, this Notice is based on the regulations as they exist with a review process set up to make any adjustments required to become and stay compliant.
In the event of any changes or processes which need remedial action the review procedure will capture those issues and remedy them.
If you feel that your data has not been handled correctly, or you are unhappy with our response to any requests you have made to us regarding the use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
