The GDPR applies to both automated personal data and to manual filing systems where personal data are accessible according to specific criteria. This could include chronologically ordered sets of manual records containing personal data.

As part of the GDPR we must demonstrate:

  • That we have a lawful basis for collecting and processing personal data;

  • That we will delete personal data when specifically requested by an individual or company;
  • That we will delete personal data after a defined time period;
