GDPR – STATEMENT OF INTENT

Kindred Spirit Investigations is required to keep and process certain information about its staff members and guests in accordance with its legal obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Kindred Spirit Investigations may, from time to time, be required to share personal information about its staff or guests with other organisations, on the rare occasion that the venue managers that we hire venues from may request guest lists for disclaimer purposes for example.

This policy is in place to ensure that all staff and Kindred Spirit Investigations guests are aware of their responsibilities and outlines how Kindred Spirit Investigations complies with the core principles of the GDPR. Organisational methods for keeping data secure are imperative, and Kindred Spirit Investigations believes that it is good practice to adopt clear practical policies, backed up by written procedures.

This policy complies with the requirements set out in the GDPR, which will came into effect on 25 May 2018. The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR.

Data that will be kept by Kindred Spirit Investigations for guests may be: Name, Address, Mobile Number / Phone Number, email address and images / videos whilst partaking in events. No other information will be processed and obtained. Account details are held by outside agencies – Stripe, Paypal and DotGo.

Data kept by Kindred Spirit Investigations for staff may be: Name, Address, Bank  Account Details and Next of Kin. Images and videos of the staff will also be obtained and used for social media purposes.

 

Legal framework

This policy has due regard to legislation, including, but not limited to the following:

• The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

• The Freedom of Information Act 2000

 • The Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004

 

This policy will also have regard to the following guidance:

• Information Commissioner’s Office (2017) ‘Overview of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)’

• Information Commissioner’s Office (2017) ‘Preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 12 steps to take now’ 

 

Applicable data

For the purpose of this policy, personal data refers to information that relates to an identifiable, living individual, including information such as an online identifier, e.g. an IP address. The GDPR applies to both automated personal data and to manual filing systems, where personal data is accessible according to specific criteria. Sensitive personal data is referred to in the GDPR as ‘special categories of personal data’, which are broadly the same as those in the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998.

 

Principles

In accordance with the requirements outlined in the GDPR, personal data shall be:

• Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals.

• Collected for organisational, accounting, advertising and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes.

• Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.

 • 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.

• 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, where guests have opted to subscribe to our newsletter and for reference to event attendance for accounting purposes.

 • 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.

The GDPR also requires that “the controller shall be responsible for, and able to demonstrate, compliance with the principles”.

 

Accountability

  Kindred Spirit Investigations shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to demonstrate that data is processed in line with the principles set out in the GDPR.

Kindred Spirit Investigations will provide comprehensive, clear and transparent privacy policies, which shall be followed by all members of staff.

Additional internal records of Kindred Spirit Investigations processing activities shall be maintained and kept up-to-date.

Internal records of processing activities will include the following:

 

Staff Members:

• Name and address of staff member

 • Next of kin details

• Account details to allow wages to be paid

 

Guests:

• Name / Address of guests

• Contact number – mobile or house phone

 • Email address

 

Information of the above will be held on DotGo, Paypal or Stripe systems. All of these are out of the control of Kindred Spirit Investigations but can be accessed by Kindred Spirit Investigations.

 

Kindred Spirit Investigations shall implement measures that meet the principles of data protection by design and data protection by default, such as:

• Data minimisation.

• Transparency.

• Continuously creating and improving security features.

Data protection officer (DPO)

Mrs Melanie Clements is the DPO representing Kindred Spirit Investigations.

 The DPO shall be appointed in order to :

 • Inform and advise the Kindred Spirit Investigations and its employees about their obligations to comply with the GDPR and other data protection laws.

 • Monitor compliance with the GDPR and other laws, including managing internal data protection activities.

The individual appointed as DPO shall have professional experience and knowledge of data protection law, particularly that in relation to public events.

 

Lawful processing

 The legal basis for processing data shall be identified and documented prior to data being processed.

Kindred Spirit Investigations act as a data processor; however, this role may also be undertaken by other third parties.

Under the GDPR, data shall be lawfully processed under the following conditions:

•     The consent of the data subject has been obtained.

•     Lists may be formulated identifying name only for groupings on events.

 

 Consent

Consent shall be sought prior to processing any data which cannot be done so under any other lawful basis, such as complying with a regulatory requirement.

Consent shall only be accepted where it is freely given, specific, informed and an unambiguous indication of the individual’s wishes.

 Kindred Spirit Investigations shall ensure that consent mechanisms meet the standards of the GDPR.

Consent accepted under the DPA shall be reviewed to ensure it meets the standards of the GDPR; however, acceptable consent obtained under the DPA will not be reobtained.

Consent can be withdrawn by the individual at any time.

 

The right to be informed

 The privacy notice supplied to individuals in regards to the processing of their personal data shall be written in clear, plain language which is concise, transparent, easily accessible and free of charge.

The right of access

Staff and Guests have the right to obtain confirmation that their data is being processed.

Staff and guests have the right to submit a subject access request (SAR- Service Access Request) to gain access to their personal data in order to verify the lawfulness of the processing.

Kindred Spirit Investigations shall verify the identity of the person making the request before any information is supplied.

 A copy of the information shall be supplied to the individual free of charge; however, Kindred Spirit Investigations may impose a ‘reasonable fee’ to comply with requests for further copies of the same information.

 Where a SAR has been made electronically, the information will be provided in a commonly used electronic format.

Where a request is manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive, a reasonable fee will be charged.

All fees will be based on the administrative cost of providing the information.

 All requests shall be responded to without delay and at the latest, within one month of receipt.

 In the event of numerous or complex requests, the period of compliance will be extended by a further two months. The individual will be informed of this extension, and will receive an explanation of why the extension is necessary, within one month of the receipt of the request.

Where a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, Kindred Spirit Investigations holds the right to refuse to respond to the request. The individual will be informed of this decision and the reasoning behind it, as well as their right to complain to the supervisory authority and to a judicial remedy, within one month of the refusal.

 In the event that a large quantity of information is being processed about an individual, Kindred Spirit Investigations will ask the individual to specify the information the request is in relation to.

 

The right to rectification

 Individuals are entitled to have any inaccurate or incomplete personal data rectified.

Where the personal data in question has been disclosed to third parties, Kindred Spirit Investigations will inform the third parties of the rectification where possible.

Where appropriate, Kindred Spirit Investigations will inform the individual about the third parties that the data has been disclosed to.

 Requests for rectification shall be responded to within one month; this will be extended by two months where the request for rectification is complex.

Where no action is being taken in response to a request for rectification, Kindred Spirit Investigations shall explain the reason for this to the individual, and will inform them of their right to complain.

 

The right to Delete

Individuals hold the right to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing.

 Individuals have the right to erasure in the following circumstances:

 • Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed

 • When the individual withdraws their consent

 • When the individual objects to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing

 • The personal data was unlawfully processed

• The personal data is required to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation

Kindred Spirit Investigations has the right to refuse a request for erasure where the personal data is being processed for the following reasons:

• To exercise the right of freedom of expression and information

• To comply with a legal obligation for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority

The right to restrict processing

Individuals have the right to block or suppress Kindred Spirit Investigations processing of personal data.

 In the event that processing is restricted, Kindred Spirit Investigations shall store the personal data, but not further process it, guaranteeing that just enough information about the individual has been retained to ensure that the restriction is respected in future.

Kindred Spirit Investigations shall restrict the processing of personal data in the following circumstances:

• Where an individual contests the accuracy of the personal data, processing shall be restricted until Kindred Spirit Investigations has verified the accuracy of the data

 • Where an individual has objected to the processing and Kindred Spirit Investigations is considering whether their legitimate grounds override those of the individual

• Where processing is unlawful and the individual opposes erasure and requests restriction instead

• Where Kindred Spirit Investigations no longer needs the personal data but the individual requires the data to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim

 If the personal data in question has been disclosed to third parties, Kindred Spirit Investigations shall inform them about the restriction on the processing of the personal data, unless it is impossible or involves disproportionate effort to do so.

Kindred Spirit Investigations shall inform individuals when a restriction on processing has been lifted.

 

The right to object

Kindred Spirit Investigations shall inform individuals of their right to object at the first point of communication, and this information will be outlined in the privacy notice and explicitly brought to the attention of the data subject, ensuring that it is presented clearly and separately from any other information.

Individuals have the right to object to the following:

• Processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest

• Direct marketing

• An individual’s grounds for objecting must relate to his or her particular situation.

Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes:

• Kindred Spirit Investigations shall stop processing personal data for direct marketing purposes as soon as an objection is received.

 • Kindred Spirit Investigations cannot refuse an individual’s objection regarding data that is being processed for direct marketing purposes.

 

Data breaches

The term ‘personal data breach’ refers to a breach of security which has led to the destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data.

The DPO shall ensure that all staff members are made aware of, and understand, what constitutes a data breach as part of their training.

Where a breach is likely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals, the relevant supervisory authority shall be informed.

All notifiable breaches shall be reported to the relevant supervisory authority within 72 hours of the academy becoming aware of it.

Failure to report a breach when required to do so may result in a fine, as well as a fine for the breach itself.

 

Data security

 Confidential paper records shall be kept in a locked filing cabinet, drawer or safe, with restricted access.

 Digital data shall be coded, encrypted or password-protected, both on a local hard drive and on a network drive that is regularly backed up off-site.

Memory sticks shall not be used to hold personal information unless they are password-protected and fully encrypted.

To limit the risk of data falling into the wrong hands the DPO will be the only individual responsible for viewing, storing and usage of data. No other member of staff will be able to access this.

 

Photography and Video

Guests are notified and informed via email that staff and guests may take photographs for use on social media prior to the event. They are asked to inform Kindred Spirit Investigations prior to the event should they wish their images not to be taken. The email states that permission is granted for social media if a guest does not respond to the email.

Staff and guests may have photos and videos of them taken throughout the event. Guests have the right to have these images removed  at any time and should inform us as soon as possible if they wish for any removal of images.
