The Data Protection Act 2018 (“GDPR”) came into force on 25th May 2018 and has been designed to meet the requirements of the digital age. The new Regulation standardises data protection laws and processing across the UK and EU, affording individuals stronger, more consistent rights to access and control their personal information.
International Dance Supplies (‘we’ or ‘us’ or ‘our’) are committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that we process, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. When collecting your data through our website we always use Secure Server Technology (SSL-256 bit encryption) to ensure industry standard security of your data during transmission. We treat all data that you provide us as confidential and only use and keep it in line with the rules detailed in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will never sell any data about you to any third party. We may pass data about you to third parties but only for a specific purpose, for example to create a shipping label. In such cases we will only pass the relevant data that is required for the purpose.
International Data Transfers & Third-Party Disclosures
Where International Dance Supplies stores or transfers personal information outside the EU, we have robust procedures and safeguarding measures in place to secure, encrypt and maintain the integrity of the data. Our procedures include a continual review of the countries with sufficient adequacy decisions, as well as provisions for binding corporate rules; standard data protection clauses or approved codes of conduct for those countries without. We carry out due diligence checks with all recipients of personal data to assess and verify that they have appropriate safeguards in place to protect the information, ensure enforceable data subject rights and have effective legal remedies for data subjects where applicable.
Special Categories Data
Where we obtain and process any special category information, we do so in complete compliance with the Article 9 requirements and have high-level encryptions and protections on all such data. Special category data is only processed where necessary and is only processed where we have first identified the appropriate Article 9(2) basis or the Data Protection Bill Schedule 1 condition. Where we rely on consent for processing, this is explicit and is verified by a signature, with the right to modify or remove consent being clearly signposted.
Data Subject Rights
IDS ensure individuals can enforce their data protection rights by providing easy to access information via website of an individual’s right to access any personal information that International Dance Supplies processes about them and to request information about: -
What personal data we hold about them
The purposes of the processing
The categories of personal data concerned
The recipients to whom the personal data has/will be disclosed
How long we intend to store your personal data
If we did not collect the data directly from them, information about the source, if available
The right to have incomplete or inaccurate data about them corrected or completed and the process for requesting this
The right to request erasure of personal data (where applicable) or to restrict processing in accordance with data protection laws, as well as to object to any direct marketing from us and to be informed about any automated decision-making that we use
The right to lodge a complaint or seek judicial remedy and who to contact in such instances.
Our breach procedures ensure that we have safeguards and measures in place to identify, assess, investigate, and report any personal data breach at the earliest possible time. Our procedures are robust and have been disseminated to all employees, making them aware of the reporting lines and steps to follow.
Information Security & Technical and Organisational Measures
International Dance Supplies takes the privacy and security of individuals and their personal information very seriously and take every reasonable measure and precaution to protect and secure the personal data that we process. We have robust information security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction and have several layers of security measures.
