The principles of data protection

1.Lawfulness, Fairness and Transparency
The first principle of the Data Protection Legislation is the basis of all the processing of personal data within BM Glass Coatings. All BM Glass Coatings’ employees have been trained on the meanings of these principles. The data collection procedures within BM Glass Coatings have been altered to ensure the lawfulness, fairness and transparency of data processing and to ensure the data subjects are fully informed at all times. In order to comply with this Data Protection Principle, BM Glass Coatings has created this Privacy Policy and has updated various other policies that relay information regarding lawful, fair and transparent processing.

2. Adequate, relevant and not excessive
All data held about data subjects must be adequate, relevant and not excessive. To ensure this, BM Glass Coatings has updated their forms both physical and electronic to ensure adequate information is collected on data subjects. A review has been done to ensure that all the information we collect is relevant to the reason for collection.

3. Accurate and up to date
BM Glass Coatings strives to ensure that all information held about the data subject is accurate and kept up to date. This is often a difficult task due to the number of data subjects in contact with the organisation. In order to comply with this principle, a BM Glass Coatings employee may ask you to verify the information we hold about you to ensure it is up to date. You can also contact us if you have changed any information and would like it corrected on our system. This can be done by emailing bm@bmglasscoatings.ie or by phoning the BM Glass Coatings office.

4. Purpose Limitation
Personal data may only be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and must not be further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes. In BM Glass Coatings, we will not use your data for any process that may fall outside our legal basis. You can opt out of communications from BM Glass Coatings at any time.

5. Storage Limitation
We have implemented a Data Retention policy which details the periods of retention for each category of data held by BM Glass Coatings. Personal data will not be retained by BM Glass Coatings for longer than stated in the data retention policy unless there is a legal reason.

6. Data Minimisation
BM Glass Coatings will only collect the information it needs about you in order to process your purchases or the services you require from us.
