How we protect your data
We collect this data in a transparent way and only with the full knowledge of interested parties. Once this information is available to M50 Truck and Van Centre, the following rules apply.
Our data will be:
- Accurate and kept up-to-date
- Collected fairly and for lawful purposes only
- Processed by M50 Truck and Van Centre on the basis of either a valid contract, consent, legal compliance or legitimate interest
- Protected against any unauthorised access or illegal processing by internal or external parties.
Our data will not be:
- Communicated to any unauthorised internal or external parties
- Stored for longer than required for the purpose obtained
- Transferred to organisations, states or countries outside the European Economic area without adequate safeguards being put in place as required under Data Protection law.
Some of the third parties we share your data with may reside outside the European Economic Area (which currently comprises the Member states of the European Union plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein). If we do this, your information will be treated to the same standards adopted in Ireland and include the following data protection transfer mechanisms:
- Model Clauses (also known as Standard Contractual Clauses) are standard clauses in our contracts with our service providers to ensure that any personal data leaving the EEA will be transferred in compliance with EU data-protection law. Copies of our current Model Clauses are available on request.
- Transfers to countries outside the EEA which have an adequate level of protection as approved by the European Commission (such as the United Kingdom).
- Transfers permitted in specific situations where a derogation applies as set out in Article 49 of the GDPR. For example, where it is necessary to transfer information to a non-EEA country to perform our contract with you.
M50 Truck and Van Centre ’s commitment to protect your data:
- Restrict and monitor access to sensitive data
- Develop transparent data collection procedures
- Train employees in data protection and security measures
