The Company has in place appropriate security measures which ensures that hard copy personal data is kept in lockable storage and filing areas with controlled access. These measures include:

  • Keeping all personal data in lockable storage with either key and/or number-lock-controlled access.
  • Storing and password-protecting all personal data held electronically on a server accessible only by relevant and pre-approved Company employees.
  • Placing any PCs or terminals, CCTV camera screens etc. that show personal data in a secure location, so that they are not visible except to authorised staff.
  • Ensuring that PC screens are not left unattended without a password protected lock-screen being used.

We endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information. However, we cannot guarantee the security of any data you disclose online. Due to the inherent security risks of providing information and dealing online, you will not hold us responsible for any breach of security unless due to our negligence or wilful default.

How long we hold your data, and how it can be deleted

In addition, the Stormfauna Create and Party has put in place appropriate measures for the deletion of personal data where it is held by the Company; manual records will be shredded or disposed of as ‘confidential waste’ and appropriate contract terms have been put in place with any third parties undertaking this work. Hard drives of redundant PCs will be wiped clean before disposal or if that is not possible, destroyed physically. A log will be kept of the records destroyed. This information will be held by the Company for as long as we both are parties to a contract or transaction, or until such a time as you withdraw your consent for us to hold it. Accounting information will be retained for the suggested time period as recommended by government legislation following the termination of the contract or transaction for record-keeping purposes in relation to tax.

Security systems
