GDPR Compliance Statement

Introduction

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has introduced the most significant changes to data protection law in two decades. Based on privacy by design and taking a risk-based approach, the GDPR has been designed to meet the requirements of the digital age. The 21st century brings with it broader use of technology, new definitions of what constitutes personal data and a vast increase in cross-border processing. The new Regulation aims to standardise data protection laws and processing across the EU; affording individuals stronger, more consistent rights to access and control their personal information.

Our Commitment

The operator of uniref, Taskman Innovations Limited ("Taskman"), is committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that is processed, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. We recognise our obligations to meet the demands of the GDPR.

Taskman is dedicated to safeguarding the personal information under our remit and to developing a data protection regime that is effective, fit for purpose and demonstrates an understanding of, and appreciation for, the new Regulation. Our preparation and objectives for GDPR compliance have been summarised in this statement and include the development and implementation of new data protection roles, policies, procedures, controls and measures to ensure maximum and ongoing compliance.

How We Comply with the GDPR

Taskman already has a consistent level of data protection and security across the organisation, however our GDPR preparation includes:

Data Subject Rights

In addition to the policies and procedures mentioned above that ensure individuals can enforce their data protection rights, we provide easy to access information, via email contact, of an individual's right to access any personal information that the processes about them and to request information about:

Information Security, Technical and Organisational Measures

Taskman takes the privacy and security of individuals and their personal information very seriously and takes every reasonable measure and precaution to protect and secure the personal data that is stored and processed. There are robust information security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction and several layers of security measures exist, including SSL website data encryption, access controls and a password policy.

GDPR Roles and Employees

Taskman has designated the Taskman Technical Director as the Data Protection Officer (DPO) to monitor compliance with the GDPR. Taskman understands that continuous employee awareness and understanding is vital for ongoing GDPR compliance and has involved its employees in the preparation plans. If you have any questions about our compliance with the GDPR, please contact the Data Protection Officer (DPO).
