Security, Integrity & confidentiality.
I develop, implement and maintain safeguards appropriate to the size, scope and business, my available resources, the amount of personal data that I own or maintain on behalf of others and identified risks.
I do not use personal data for new, different or incompatible purposes from from the original ones you agreed to without your express permission.

I only transfer your data to countries outside the UK and the EEA when there are safeguards in place that guarantee the equivalent safety for your data, to fulfil legal requirements or when you have given express consent.
Personal data must be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date. It must be corrected or deleted without delay when inaccurate. I take all reasonable steps to destroy or amend inaccurate or out-of-date personal data.
Personal data must be adequate, relevant and limited to limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. When it is no longer needed for those purposes it is deleted or anonymised as stated in my data retention guidelines.
I implement Privacy by Design measures when processing personal data by implementing appropriate technical and organisational measures (like pseudonymisation) in an effective manner, to ensure compliance with data privacy principles.Personal data must be secured by appropriate technical and organisational measures against unauthorised or unlawful processing, and against accidental loss, destruction or damage.
I have developed, implemented and maintain safeguards appropriate to my size, scope and business, my available resources, the amount of personal data that I own or maintain on behalf of others and identified risks. I will regularly evaluate and test the effectiveness of those safeguards to ensure security of our processing of personal data.
I may only transfer personal data to third-party service providers who agree to comply with the required policies and procedures and who agree to put adequate measures in place, as requested.
I will follow all procedures and technologies put in place to maintain the security of all personal data from the point of collection to the point of destruction.

Integrity means that personal data is accurate and suitable for the purpose for which it is processed; and
Availability means that authorised users are able to access the personal data when they need it for authorised purposes.
Reporting a Data Breach.
The GDPR requires me as a Data Controller to notify any personal data breach to the applicable regulator and to you.
I have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you or any applicable regulator where we are legally required to do so.
