What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
GDPR is a new set of regulations that come into force on the 25 May 2018. The GDPR places a greater responsibility on all organisations, including Loreburn Housing Association, to ensure your personal data is secure, accurate and up-to date.
Organisations must ensure they provide a lawful basis for processing all types of personal data that they have not sought specific consent to use. The GDPR requires that controllers and processors must be transparent about how they collect data, what they do with it, and how they process it, and must be clear in explaining these things to you.
We have produced a Fair Processing Notice which sets out:
- How we collect information from you
- What information we collect
- Why we need this information
- What we will use this information for
- Why and how we may share information about you
- How this information is stored and for how long
- Your rights regarding requests to view, amend or delete the information we hold about you
You can view our Fair Processing Notice here.
