General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union (EU) regulation governing data privacy, which places new requirements on individuals and businesses offering services both within and into the EU. The aim of the GDPR is to harmonize the existing patchwork of data privacy laws currently in place across most of Europe, including the 28 member countries of the EU and the 3 additional member countries of the European Economic Area (EEA).
The GDPR went into effect in Europe on May 25, 2018, and gives individuals in the EU more transparency, rights, and control around the way their personal information is used. It also provides rights for data deletion, access, and portability.
Personal data GDPR applies to:
- Social Security numbers
- Email addresses
- Banking information
- Social media posts
- Medical information
- IP addresses
CINC is working to develop and remain compliant with GDPR principles. Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
- Request access to your data (commonly known as a “subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of your data and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- Request correction of your data. This enables you to ask us to correct any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you.
- Request erasure of your data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove your data under certain circumstances, for example, if you consider that there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
- Object to the processing of your data where we are relying on our legitimate interests(or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
- Request the restriction of processing of your data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your data, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
- Request the transfer of your data to another party.
Depending on the circumstances and the nature of your request it may not be possible for us to do what you have asked, for example, where there is a statutory or contractual requirement for us to process your data and it would not be possible to fulfil our legal obligations if we were to stop. If you want to exercise any of the rights described above or are dissatisfied with the way we have used your information, you should contact [ADD EMAIL]
