Data Protection Act 2018
New regulations for small businesses came into on May 25th 2018. I need to inform you what information I will hold and what I will do with it.
When you instruct me to carry out work on your behalf, I will take your name, address, telephone number and email address. I will enter these details into my computer and also add them to any drawings I produce.
I never give out your details to anyone except for other parties such as the Local Authority, Structural Engineers, Builders and Building Control that you have instructed me to deal with on your behalf. They should all have their own privacy notices in place.
All paper copies of your details are held in my filing cabinet which is locked every evening. On completion of your project these details are shredded but will be archived and backed up for future reference. I am obliged to retain these records for 10 years for insurance purposes. After this time period, they will be erased.
