  5. Clearview Stoves – GDPR Statement of Compliance.

    The General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) is effective from 25th May 2018.

    In preparation for GDPR, Clearview Stoves acknowledges its responsibility to develop and maintain business-wide awareness of the rights of individuals to be empowered and protected in terms of data privacy.

    We have consulted broadly and implemented processes, procedures and training to ensure that a legal basis for the processing of personal data underpins all business practices at Clearview.

    We recognise that there are a small number of circumstances in which personal data may be processed and that the GDPR clarifies the responsibilities of companies as far as the processing (collection, storage, maintenance and use) of personal data is concerned.

    We will continually strive to ensure that personal data privacy is embedded as routine practice on a perpetual basis.

    Clearview Stoves have undertaken to ensure that all staff receive training in the concepts and requirements of data protection law.  Staff will be expected to adopt practices in the workplace that reflect the company’s commitment to ensuring that the rights of individuals are respected and protected at all times.

    Clearview Stoves internal policy for data protection requires any products, services or systems adopted by the company (relating in any way to the processing of personal data) to undergo an assessment to establish that they do not contravene the company’s policies to maintain compliance with the GDPR.

    Clearview Stoves have implemented training and processes to enable staff to recognise and respond to data Subject Access Requests (‘SARs’).  Staff will understand the significance of undertaking identity checks prior to responding to requests for data portability and the rectification and erasure of personal data.
