Here at Glendee, we are committed to a policy of protecting the rights and privacy of individuals. Protecting your personal information is of high priority for both the staff, management, trustees and volunteers of Glendee.
Purpose of Policy
Glendee has created this policy to ensure that:
- It complies with GDPR and follows good practice.
The GDPR aims to ensure organisations keep personal data in a secure way. The PCI DSS focuses on payment card and cardholder data, while the GDPR covers regulation for EU residents’ personal data. The important difference is that GDPR is more general than PCI DSS.
- It is open about how it processes and stores your personal information
- It demonstrates our accountability and responsibility for data protection
- It has implemented a GDPR compliant Subject Access Request (SAR) procedure for responding to all types of data privacy related requests.
