GDPR Compliance Plan

NGFV is committed to compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The regulation contains the most significant changes to European data privacy legislation in the last 20 years. It is designed to give EU citizens more control over their data and seeks to unify a number of existing privacy and security laws under one comprehensive law.

Privacy policy – Individuals have the following rights:

  • To access and export their personal data
  • Delete their personal data
  • Correct errors in their personal data
  • Oppose the processing of their personal data

Audits and disclosures – Companies and organizations must:

  • Protect personal data by taking appropriate security measures
  • Communicate violations of personal data to authorities
  • Receive consent to the collection and processing of personal data
  • Keep records that provide detailed information on data processing activities
  • Transparency

Companies and organizations must implement policies that:

  • They will provide clear disclosure for data collection
  • They will describe the reason and the cases of processing your personal data
  • They will set up data retention and deletion policies

Seven Privacy Principles for Collection of Personal Data

  • Lawful, Fair and Transparent – Data processing must not violate the GDPR tests.
  • Limit your Purpose – Only collect data for “specified, explicit and legitimate” purposes and no others without further consent.
  • Minimize Collection – Limit the amount of data you collect to what’s adequate and relevant for the purpose.
  • Be Accurate – Make sure the data you collect is accurate and kept up to date.
  • Limit Storage Time – Keep data for no longer than necessary and remove data after it’s no longer required.
  • Integrity, Protection and Confidentiality – Handle data carefully so as to secure it against loss, damage and destruction.
  • Accountability – Controllers must take responsibility for their processing of personal data and how they comply with the GDPR, and be able to demonstrate (through appropriate records and measures) their compliance
