Data protection policy

The personal data that FCL processes to provide these services relates to its customers and other individuals as necessary, including staff and suppliers’ staff. This policy sets out FCLs commitment to ensuring that any personal data, including special category personal data, which FCL processes, is carried out in compliance with data protection law. FCL processes the personal data of staff and customers including the personal data of non-EU citizens, but is committed to ensuring that all the personal data that it processes is done in accordance with data protection law. FCL ensures that good data protection practice is imbedded in the culture of our staff and our organisation.
FCL’s other data protection policies and procedures are (these should be considered and may not all be necessary):

IT security policies
‘Data Protection Law’ includes the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679; the UK Data Protection Act 2018 and all relevant EU and UK data protection legislation.
This policy applies to all personal data processed by FCL and is part of FCL’s approach to compliance with data protection law. FCL will not process any personal data for any customer without their express consent which may be given orally or in writing or to enable the performance of a contract for the sale of goods that the customer has entered into with us or a third party supplier for the benefit of the customer.
Data protection principles
FCL complies with the data protection principles set out below. When processing personal data, it ensures that:
it is processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject (‘lawfulness, fairness and transparency’)
it is collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes (‘purpose limitation’)
it is all adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed (‘data minimisation’)
it is all accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date and that reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay (‘accuracy’)
it is kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed (‘storage limitation’)
it is processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures (‘integrity and confidentiality’)
FCL will facilitate any request from a data subject who wishes to exercise their rights under data protection law as appropriate, always communicating in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible form and without undue delay.
FCL will: •
ensure that the legal basis for processing personal data is identified in advance and that all processing complies with the law
not do anything with your data that you would not expect given the content of this policy and the fair processing or privacy notice
only collect and process the personal data that it needs for purposes it has identified in advance
ensure that, as far as possible, the personal data it holds is accurate, or a system is in place for ensuring that it is kept up to date as far as possible
only hold onto your personal data for as long as it is needed, after which time FCL will securely erase or delete the personal data
ensure that appropriate security measures are in place to ensure that personal data can only be accessed by those who need to access it and that it is held and transferred securely
FCL will ensure that all staff who handle personal data on its behalf are aware of their responsibilities under this policy and other relevant data protection and information security policies, and that they are adequately trained and supervised.
Data Subject Rights
FCL has processes in place to ensure that it can facilitate any FCL made by an individual to exercise their rights under data protection law. All staff have received training and are aware of the rights of data subjects. Staff can identify such a request and know who to send it to.
All requests will be considered without undue delay and within one month of receipt as far as possible.
Subject access: the right to request information about how personal data is being processed, including whether personal data is being processed and the right to be allowed access to that data and to be provided with a copy of that data along with the right to obtain the following information:
the purpose of the processing
the categories of personal data
the recipients to whom data has been disclosed or which will be disclosed
the retention period
the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office
the source of the information if not collected direct from the subject, and
the existence of any automated decision making
Rectification: the right to allow a data subject to rectify inaccurate personal data concerning them.
Erasure: the right to have data erased and to have confirmation of erasure, but only where:
the data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was collected, or
where consent is withdrawn, or
where there is no legal basis for the processing, or
there is a legal obligation to delete data
Restriction of processing: the right to ask for certain processing to be restricted in the following circumstances:
if the accuracy of the personal data is being contested, or
if our processing is unlawful but the data subject does not want it erased, or
if the data is no longer needed for the purpose of the processing but it is required
by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or
if the data subject has objected to the processing, pending verification of that objection.
Data portability: the right to receive a copy of personal data which has been provided by the data subject and which is processed by automated means in a format which will allow the individual to transfer the data to another data controller. This would only apply if FCL was processing the data using consent or on the basis of a contract.
Object to processing: the right to object to the processing of personal data relying on the legitimate interests processing condition unless FCL can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Special category personal data
FCL will not process Special category personal data in relation to its customers but may do so in relation to its employees under the following areas that reveal:
an individual’s health
an individual’s disability
criminal convictions or offences
FCL processes special category data of employees as is necessary to comply with employment and social security law. This policy sets out the safeguards we believe are appropriate to ensure that we comply with the data protection principles set out above. FCL also has a data retention policy which sets out how long special category data will be held onto.
Responsibility for the processing of personal data
The directors of FCL take ultimate responsibility for data protection.
