GDPR General Data Protection Regulation Action Plan.

GDPR Action Plan (General Data Protection Regulation)

Auto Time Systems has been working on an action plan since the end of 2017 in order to be compliant with the GDPR which is due to come into force on May 25th 2018.

The GDPR is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU).

Our goal is to provide our customers with an effective and compliant approach for protecting personal data when the regulations come into force. We are undergoing extensive re-evaluation of our processes and procedures and have been working with our suppliers i.e. Bodet – to ensure we are fully compliant to GDPR.

Action Plan

  • Ensure that decision makers and key employees are aware that the law is changing on 25th May 2018 and the impact it has on the business and our customers.
  • Analysis information flowchart – documenting where personal data comes from and who we share it with.
  • Implement the use of a Record Log. This is to be used by our In house Technicians and Engineers to record all working activities to customer database’s/files.
  • Through courtesy calls, maintain company records ensuring that the customer data is up to date and accurate. Should any information be out of date or inaccurate this will be deleted and cleansed from the database.
  • Review current privacy notices
  • Ensure compliance through ICO (information Commission’s Office) guidelines.
  • Review GDPR actions plans of our software providers (ie. Bodet)
