Notification

Dartington Wealth Management Limited has notified the Information Commissioner that it is a data controller and that it processes certain information about data subjects. Dartington Wealth Management Limited has identified all the personal data that it processes and this is contained in the Data Inventory Register.

A copy of the ICO notification details is retained by the appointed person with the firm (The Data Protection Officer) and the ICO Notification Handbook is used as the authoritative guidance for notification.

The ICO notifications are automatically renewed annually.

The Data Protection Officer is responsible, each year, for reviewing the details of notification, in the light of any changes to the firm’s activities (as determined by changes to the Data Inventory Register and the management review) and to any additional requirements identified by means of data protection impact assessments.

The policy applies to all Employees [and interested parties] of Dartington Wealth Management Limited such as outsourced suppliers. Any breach of the GDPR or this PIMS will be dealt with under the firm’s disciplinary policy and may be a criminal offence, in which case the matter must be reported as soon as possible to the appropriate authorities.

Partners and any third parties working with or for the firm, and who have or may have access to personal information, are expected to have read, understood and to comply with this policy.

No third party may access personal data held by the firm without having first entered into a data confidentiality agreement, which imposes on the third party obligations no less onerous than those to which the firm is committed, and which gives the firm the right to audit compliance with the agreement.

Background to the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2016 replaces the EU Data Protection Directive of 1995 and supersedes the laws of individual Member States that were developed in compliance with the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. Its purpose is to protect the “rights and freedoms” of living individuals, and to ensure that personal data is not processed without their knowledge, and, wherever possible, that it is processed with their consent.

Definitions Used by the Organisation (drawn from the GDPR)

Territorial scope – the GDPR will apply to all controllers that are established in the EU (European Union) who process the personal data of data subjects, in the context of that establishment. It will also apply to controllers outside of the EU that process personal data in order to offer goods and services, or monitor the behaviour to data subjects who are resident in the EU.

Establishment – the main establishment of the controller in the EU will be the place in which the controller makes the main decisions as to the purpose of its data processing activities. The main establishment of a processor in the EU will be its administrative centre. If a controller is based outside the EU, it will have to appoint a representative in the jurisdiction in which the controller operates, to act on behalf of the controller and deal with supervisory authorities.

Personal data – any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Special categories of personal data – personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade-union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation.

Data controller – the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

Data subject – any living individual who is the subject of personal data held by an organisation.

Processing – any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Profiling – is any form of automated processing of personal data intended to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, or to analyse, or predict that person’s performance at work, economic situation, location, health, personal preferences, reliability, or behaviour. This definition is linked to the right of the data subject to object to profiling and a right to be informed about the existence of profiling, of measures based on profiling and the envisaged effects of profiling on the individual.

Personal data breach – a breach of security leading to the accidental, or unlawful, destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed. There is an obligation on the controller to report personal data breaches to the supervisory authority and where the breach is likely to adversely affect the personal data or privacy of the data subject.

Data subject consent – means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data.

Child – the GDPR defines a child as anyone under the age of 16 years old. The processing of personal data of a child under 13 years of age is only lawful if parental or custodian consent has been obtained.

Third party – a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

Filing system – any structured set of personal data, which are accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or dispersed on a functional or geographical basis.

General Data Protection Principles

Personal data must be processed lawfully, fairly and transparently, Dartington Wealth Management Limited’s Fair Processing Procedure is set out in a separate document.

GDPR introduces the requirement for transparency whereby the controller has transparent and easily accessible policies relating to the processing of personal data and the exercise of individuals’ “rights and freedoms”.

Information must be communicated to the data subject in an intelligible form using clear and plain language. The specific information that must be provided to the data subject must as a minimum include:

the identity and the contact details of the controller and, if any, of the controller’s representative;
the contact details of the Data Protection officer, where applicable;
the purposes of the processing for which the personal data are intended as well as the legal basis for the processing;
the period for which the personal data will be stored;
the existence of the rights to request access, rectification, erasure or to object to the processing;
the categories of personal data concerned;
the recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data, where applicable;
where applicable, that the controller intends to transfer personal data to a recipient in a third country and the level of protection afforded to the data;
any further information necessary to guarantee fair processing.

Personal data can only be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes.

Data obtained for specified purposes must not be used for a purpose that differs from those formally notified to the Information Commissioner as part of the firm’s GDPR registration.

The firm’s fair processing policy sets out the relevant procedures.

Personal data must be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for processing.

The Data Protection Officer is the GDPR Owner and is responsible for ensuring that information, which is not strictly necessary for the purpose for which it is obtained, is not collected.
All data collection forms (electronic or paper-based), including data collection requirements in new information systems, must be approved by the the Data Protection Officer.
The Data Protection Officer will ensure that, on an annual basis all data collection methods are reviewed by [internal audit/external experts] to ensure that collected data continues to be adequate, relevant and not excessive.
If data is given or obtained that is excessive or not specifically required by the firm’s documented procedures, Name is responsible for ensuring that it is securely deleted or destroyed in line with the firm’s policy for disposal of storage media.
Personal data must be accurate and kept up to date.
Data that is kept for a long time must be reviewed and updated as necessary. No data should be kept unless it is reasonable to assume that it is accurate.
The firm are responsible for ensuring that all staff are trained in the importance of collecting accurate data and maintaining it.

The DPO will identify any data that is no longer required in the context of the registered purpose and will arrange to have that data securely deleted/destroyed in line with the firm’s policy for disposal of storage media.
The Data Protection Officer is responsible for making appropriate arrangements that, where third party organisations may have been passed inaccurate or out-of-date personal information it is not to be used to inform decisions about the individuals concerned; and for passing any correction to the personal information to the third party where this is required.

Personal data must be kept in a form such that the data subject can be identified only as long as is necessary for processing.

Where personal data is retained beyond the processing date, it will be minimised in order to protect the identity of the data subject in the event of a data breach.
Personal data will be retained in line with the retention of records procedure and, once its retention date is passed, it must be securely destroyed as set out in this procedure.
The Data Protection Officer must specifically approve any data retention that exceeds the retention periods defined in the firms record retention procedure, and must ensure that the justification is clearly identified and in line with the requirements of the data protection legislation. This approval must be written.
Personal data must be processed in a manner that ensures its security

Appropriate technical and organisational measures shall be taken against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data.

These controls have been selected on the basis of identified risks to personal data, and the potential for damage or distress to individuals whose data is being processed.

Security controls will be subject to audit and review, following the Personal data shall not be transferred to a country or territory outside the European Union unless that country or territory ensures an adequate level of protection for the ‘rights and freedoms’ of data subjects in relation to the processing of personal data.

The transfer of personal data outside of the EU is prohibited unless one or more of the specified safeguards or exceptions apply.

A list of countries that satisfy the adequacy requirements of the Commission are published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Accountability

I now need more advice and will be going to him again…
