The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force in May 2018. This legislation replaces existing data protection laws and governs how companies collect, hold and use people’s personal data.
As a leading provider of quality flooring and fitting services for domestic and commercial customers, Greens Carpets and Flooring is committed to GDPR compliance and strengthening the security and protection of its customer’s data.
Greens Carpets and Flooring therefore abides by the following customer data safeguarding principles.
Only data specifically necessary for the supply and fitting of flooring to a customer’s premises will be collected and stored.
Customer data is not stored electronically.
All computers within the business are secured by passwords which are changed on a monthly basis and are only accessible by Directors or senior management.
Our computers systems are protected by Anti-Virus software by Sophos security.
All printed documentation that includes customer data e.g. invoice, statement, delivery notes etc is stored centrally at our premises under lock and key. The only key holders are our Directors and Sales Administrators.
All printed customer documentation is professional shredded at time of disposal.
Our customers have a permanent right to request that all their data be erased at any time. If you wish to be erased from our systems, please contact our Data Protection Officer detailed below.
We only use customer data in the processing and fulfilment of customer orders for flooring and fitting, and the optional communication of occasional commercial news and offers.
We expect all of our suppliers to have GDPR procedures in place and encourage customers to familiarise themselves with GDPR.
All our staff are familiar with the importance of GDPR and their personal responsibilities to protecting customer data.
All sub-contractors are familiar with the importance of GDPR and their personal responsibilities to protecting customer data are in line with our own policies. They are also covered by their own liability insurances.
