GDPR and your Data – we’re making it clear

Plunkett Associates has always taken great care regarding customer data and we are aware of our obligations to protect personal data according to the new General Data Protection Regulation, which comes into force on May 25th.

GDPRAs part of this we want to be transparent with: 

  • what personal data we store 
  • why we store it
  • who has access to it
  • how long it is stored for 

What data do we hold and why?

We store personal data, which may include contact details such as names, emails and telephone numbers for our own business use. This is necessary in order to communicate about projects and meet contractual requirements with both customers and suppliers. 

Where we have your permission, we use your data to share our latest news and services through newsletters and email. You are free to opt out of marketing emails at any time. 

Who may have access to it?

Personal data is only shared with third parties where we have a legitimate business need. An example of this would be that our IT security company would have access to your data, as does the company who sends out our newsletters. As per our GDPR responsibilities, all third party Privacy Notices and Information Security Policies have been reviewed to ensure complete confidence. Personal data is never sold to third party companies.

How long do we keep your data?

All personal data is stored securely and deleted once it is no longer required. However we will keep details on file once a project is finished for a sensible length of time, so that if a repeat order is required at a later date, we are able to refer to previous details for your convenience.

Plunkett Associates is aware you have rights over your personal data and are committed to meeting your needs; we have reviewed policies and procedures and invite you to look at our updated website Privacy Policy. For further information, or to update your preferences, please contact us.
