This policy outlines the information we collect and how we use it.

GDPR Principals
In order to comply with its obligations, Insolation Solar Limited, undertakes to adhere to the eight principles:

1) Process personal data fairly and lawfully. We will make all reasonable efforts to ensure that individuals who are the focus of the personal data (data subjects) are informed of the purposes of the processing, any disclosures to third parties that are envisaged; given an indication of the period for which the data will be kept, and any other information which may be relevant.

2) Process the data for the specific and lawful purpose for which it collected that data and not further process the data in a manner incompatible with this purpose. We will ensure that the reason for which it collected the data originally is the only reason for which it processes those data, unless the individual is informed of any additional processing before it takes place.

3) Ensure that the data is adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purpose for which it is processed. We will not seek to collect any personal data which is not strictly necessary for the purpose for which it was obtained. Forms for collecting data will always be drafted with this mind. If any irrelevant data are given by individuals, they will be destroyed immediately.

4) Keep personal data accurate and, where necessary, up to date. We will review and update all data on a regular basis. It is the responsibility of the individuals giving their personal data to ensure that this is accurate, and each individual should notify us if, for example, a change in circumstances mean that the data needs to be updated. It is the responsibility of the company to ensure that any notification regarding the change is noted and acted on.

5) Only keep personal data for as long as is necessary. We undertake not to retain personal data for longer than is necessary to ensure compliance with the legislation, and any other statutory requirements. This means we will undertake a regular review of the information held and implement a weeding process. We will dispose of any personal data in a way that protects the rights and privacy of the individual concerned (e.g. secure electronic deletion, shredding and disposal of hard copy files as confidential waste). A log will be kept of the records destroyed.

6) Process personal data in accordance with the rights of the data subject under the legislation. Individuals have various rights under the legislation including a right to:
• be told the nature of the information we hold and any parties to whom this may be disclosed.
• prevent processing likely to cause damage or distress.
• prevent processing for purposes of direct marketing
• be informed about the mechanics of any automated decision taking process that will significantly affect them.
• not have significant decisions that will affect them taken solely by automated process.
• take action to rectify, block, erase or destroy inaccurate data.
• sue for compensation if they suffer damage by any contravention of the legislation.
• request that the Office of the Information Commissioner assess whether any provision of the Act has been contravened. We will only process personal data in accordance with individuals’ rights.

7) Put appropriate technical and organisational measures in place against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data, and against accidental loss or destruction of data. Our Directors are responsible for ensuring that any personal data which they hold is kept securely and not disclosed to any unauthorised third parties. We will ensure that all personal data is accessible only to those who have a valid reason for using it. We will have in place appropriate security measures:
• keeping all personal data in a lockable cabinet with key-controlled access.
• password protecting personal data held electronically.
• Encryption of data In addition, we will put in place appropriate measures for the deletion of personal data – manual records will be shredded or disposed of as ‘confidential waste’ Hard drives will be wiped clean before disposal or if that is not possible, destroyed physically. A log will be kept of the records destroyed.

8) Ensure that no personal data is transferred to a country or a territory outside the European Economic Area (EEA) unless that country or territory ensures adequate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects in relation to the processing of personal data. We will not transfer data to such territories without the explicit consent of the individual. This also applies to publishing information on the Internet – because transfer of data can include placing data on a website that can be accessed from outside the EEA – so we will always seek the consent of individuals before placing any personal data (including photographs) on its website or social media sites.
