GDPR, Data Protecton Act 2018, Freedom of Information Act 2000 - ADAVISTA can guide you through it

Welcome to ADAVISTA

Specialists in implementing and/or utilising:

  • Data Protection Act 2018
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Abridged)
  • Freedom of Information Act 2000

The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) is the supervisory authority for Data Protection in the United Kingdom and for Freedom of Information in England and Wales.

On 25th May 2018 new data protection legislation was implemented across the UK.

Four letters – G D P R – have been striking terror into people in the business world for at least a year as there have been many myths circulating causing much confusion.

This has been so great that people have not realised that there is a second piece of legislation that came into effect on the same day as the abridged version of GDPR – the Data Protection Act 2018  which sits alongside the GDPR and should be implemented at the same time.

Are you one of these people? 

Are you reading more and more about this stuff and just getting more and more confused about what to do to avoid the fines?

We can help – we start by de-mystifying this and busting some myths… then we can help you look at your business and assess the requirements YOU need.  So why not:

  • Utilise our years of experience in implementing the data protection concepts  - not just GDPR

Let us take on some of the responsibility for you and do the thinking required to put these laws into place within your business without complicating the issue.  We won’t put a big dent in your wallet either.

So what can we do for you?

  • Firstly we suggest a consultation. One of the requirements of GDPR is 'Privacy By Design'. We write a Data Audit Report based on our site visit or over the phone consultation
  • We produce straightforward, concise documentation to reflect your organisations activities whilst meeting the ICO Guidence requirements
  • We produce the requisit Privacey Notices, again following the ICO guidance requirements. These too, are concise and in plain language
  • We help individuals put forward 'Subject Acces Requests' (SAR) to obtain copies of personal data held on them
  • We can also advise organisations on how to respond if they recieve a 'Subject Access Request' (SAR)
  • Staff training can be provided with formal courses/presentations or informal handouts

Whats New?

  • PRIVACY BY DESIGN – not exactly new but it is best practice under DPA but a legal requirement under GDPR.  “I have found a privacy notice on someone else’s site and amended that” does not make you compliant under GDPR – it has to fit and be able to demonstrate that it fits your business.
  • ACCOUNTABILITY – now be “officially” transparent about how you process personal information by having the appropriate documentation in place.
  • PRIVACY NOTICES – what was originally called the Privacy Policy on websites. – now requires additional information to be included.

What documents need notices/disclaimers?

  • A Privacey Notice is required regardles of whether you have a website or not
  • Email disclaimer
  • Electronic or paper forms may require disclaimers
  • Terms & Conditions, Contracts and Service Level Agreements may need some terminology

Effectivley we give you a piece of text to add to your existing documents, except the Privacey Notice, which REPLACES your old Pricacy Policy

TOO MUCH TO THINK ABOUT?   So let us do the thinking for you and take on the responsibility.

Q: Do I need to register a Notification with the Information Commissioners Office?

A: Regardless of how data are processed, compliance with the Act is a legal requirement. However, if you only hold data in a manual format, or electronically for three very specific reasons, then Notification may not be required. Best thing to be sure is check it out with a 'specialist'.
