DiaryBooker DRAFT GDPR statement:
This Policy sets out the obligations of of Diarybooker.com Ltd, a company registered in England and Wales under number 07418088 whose registered office is at 15 Oaklands, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 1FA (“the Company/we/us/our”) regarding data protection and the rights of clients, prospective clients, business contacts, employees and freelancers (“data subjects”) in respect of their personal data under the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (“GDPR”).
The GDPR defines “personal data” as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (a “data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person.
This Policy sets our obligations regarding the collection, processing, transfer, storage, and disposal of personal data. The procedures and principles set out in this Policy must be followed at all times by the Company and our employees, agents, freelancers, or other parties working on our behalf.
We are committed not only to the letter of the law, but also to the spirit of the law and we place high importance on the correct, lawful, and fair handling of all personal data, respecting the legal rights, privacy, and trust of all individuals with whom we deal.
The Principles of the GDPR
The Data Protection Principles
This Policy aims to ensure compliance with the GDPR. The GDPR sets out the following principles with which any party handling personal data must comply. All personal data must be:
Processed lawfully, fairly, and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject.
Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes. Further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, or for historical research or statistical purposes will not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes.
Adequate, relevant, and limited to what is necessary
Accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date. Every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that is inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which it is processed, is erased or rectified without delay.
Kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data is processed. Personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, or for historical research or statistical purposes, subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the data subject.
Processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction, or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
The Rights of Data Subjects
The GDPR sets out the following rights applicable to data subjects (please refer to the parts of this policy indicated for further details):
The right to be informed (clause 12).
The right of access (clause 13);
The right to rectification (clause 14);
The right to erasure (also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’) (clause 15);
The right to restrict processing (clause 16);
The right to data portability (clause 17);
The right to object (clause 18); and
Rights with respect to automated decision-making and profiling (clause 19 and 20).
Lawful, Fair, and Transparent Data Processing
The GDPR seeks to ensure that personal data is processed lawfully, fairly, and transparently, without adversely affecting the rights of the data subject. The GDPR states that processing of personal data shall be lawful if at least one of the following applies:
The data subject has given consent to the processing of their personal data for one or more specific purposes;
The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract with them;
The processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the data controller is subject;
The processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;
The processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller; or
The processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the data controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.

Details of any automated decision-making or profiling that will take place using the personal data, including information on how decisions will be made, the significance of those decisions, and any consequences.
Data Subject Access
Data subjects may make subject access requests (“SARs”) at any time to find out more about the personal data we hold about them, what we are doing with that personal data, and why.
Data subjects wishing to make a SAR should do by emailing our Data Protection Officer using the email address specified in clause 10.1.
Responses to SARs shall normally be made within one month of receipt,
All SARs received shall be handled by our Data Protection Officer.
We do not charge a fee for the handling of normal SARs. We reserve the right to charge reasonable fees for additional copies of information that has already been supplied to a data subject, and for requests that are manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly where such requests are repetitive.
Rectification of Personal Data
Data subjects have the right to require us to rectify any of their personal data that is inaccurate or incomplete.
We will rectify the personal data in question, and inform the data subject of that rectification, within one month of the data subject informing us of the issue. The period can be extended by up to two months in the case of complex requests. If such additional time is required, the data subject shall be informed.
In the event that any affected personal data has been disclosed to third parties, those parties shall be informed of any rectification that must be made to that personal data.
Erasure of Personal Data
Data subjects have the right to request that we erase the personal data we hold about them in the following circumstances:
It is no longer necessary for us to hold that personal data with respect to the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or processed;
The data subject wishes to withdraw their consent to us holding and processing their personal data;
The data subject objects to us holding and processing their personal data (and there is no overriding legitimate interest to allow us to continue doing so) (see clause 18 of this Policy for further details concerning the right to object);
The personal data has been processed unlawfully;
The personal data needs to be erased in order for us to comply with a particular legal obligation.
Unless we have reasonable grounds to refuse to erase personal data, all requests for erasure shall be complied with, and the data subject informed of the erasure, within one month of receipt of the data subject’s request. The period can be extended by up to two months in the case of complex requests. If such additional time is required, the data subject shall be informed.
In the event that any personal data that is to be erased in response to a data subject’s request has been disclosed to third parties, those parties shall be informed of the erasure (unless it is impossible or would require disproportionate effort to do so).
Restriction of Personal Data Processing
Data subjects may request that we cease processing the personal data we hold about them. If a data subject makes such a request, we will retain only the amount of personal data concerning that data subject (if any) that is necessary to ensure that the personal data in question is not processed further.
In the event that any affected personal data has been disclosed to third parties, those parties shall be informed of the applicable restrictions on processing it (unless it is impossible or would require disproportionate effort to do so).
We may use automated means to process personal data. Where data subjects have given their consent to the processing of their personal data in such a manner, or the processing is otherwise required for the performance of a contract between us and the data subject, data subjects have the right, under the GDPR, to receive a copy of their personal data and to use it for other purposes (namely transmitting it to other data controllers).
Where technically feasible, if requested by a data subject, personal data shall be sent directly to the required data controller.
All requests for copies of personal data shall be complied with within one month of the data subject’s request. The period can be extended by up to two months in the case of complex or numerous requests. If such additional time is required, the data subject shall be informed.
Objections to Personal Data Processing
Data subjects have the right to object to us processing their personal data based on legitimate interests and direct marketing.
Where a data subject objects to us processing their personal data based on legitimate interests, we will cease such processing immediately, unless it can be demonstrated that our legitimate grounds for such processing override the data subject’s interests, rights, and freedoms, or that the processing is necessary for the conduct of legal claims.
Where a data subject objects to us processing their personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will cease such processing immediately.
We may use personal data in automated decision-making processes. Where such decisions have a legal (or similarly significant effect) on data subjects, those data subjects have the right to challenge to such decisions under the GDPR, requesting human intervention, expressing their own point of view, and obtaining an explanation of the decision.
The right described in this clause 19 does not apply in the following circumstances:
The decision is necessary for the entry into, or performance of, a contract between us and the data subject;
The decision is authorised by law; or
The data subject has given their explicit consent.
We may use personal data for profiling purposes. When personal data is used for profiling purposes, the following shall apply:
Clear information explaining the profiling shall be provided to data subjects, including the significance and likely consequences of the profiling;
Appropriate mathematical or statistical procedures shall be used;
Technical and organisational measures shall be implemented to minimise the risk of errors. If errors occur, such measures must enable them to be easily corrected.
All personal data processed for profiling purposes shall be secured in order to prevent discriminatory effects arising out of profiling (see clauses 21 to 25 of this Policy for more details on data security).

No personal data will be transferred to any device personally belonging to an employee and personal data may only be transferred to devices belonging to agents, contractors, or other parties working on our behalf where the party in question has agreed to comply fully with the letter and spirit of this Policy and of the GDPR (which may include demonstrating to us that all suitable technical and organisational measures have been taken).
Data Security – Disposal
When any personal data is to be erased or otherwise disposed of for any reason (including where copies have been made and are no longer needed), it will be securely deleted and disposed of.
Data Security – Use of Personal Data
We will ensure that the following measures are taken with respect to the use of personal data:
No personal data is shared informally and if an employee, agent, freelancer, or other party working on our behalf requires access to any personal data that they do not already have access to, such access must be formally requested from the Data Protection Officer;
No personal data will be transferred to any employees, agents, contractors, or other parties, whether such parties are working on our behalf or not, without the authorisation of the Data Protection Officer;

All passwords used to protect personal data are changed regularly and do not use words or phrases that can be easily guessed or otherwise compromised. All passwords contain a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols;
Under no circumstances will any passwords be written down or shared between any employees, agents, contractors, or other parties working on our behalf, irrespective of seniority or department. If a password is forgotten, it must be reset using the applicable method. IT staff do not have access to passwords; and
All software (including, but not limited to, applications and operating systems) shall be kept up-to-date. Our IT staff shall be responsible for installing any and all security-related updates as soon as reasonably and practically
We will ensure that the following measures are taken with respect to the collection, holding, and processing of personal data:
All employees, agents, contractors, or other parties working on our behalf and handling personal data will be:
made fully aware of both their individual responsibilities and the Company’s responsibilities under the GDPR and under this Policy, and shall be provided with a copy of this Policy;
appropriately supervised and trained to do so;
required and encouraged to exercise care, caution, and discretion when discussing work-related matters that relate to personal data, whether in the workplace or otherwise;
bound to do so in accordance with the principles of the GDPR and this Policy by contract;
Only employees, agents, freelancers, or other parties working on our behalf that need access to, and use of, personal data in order to carry out their assigned duties correctly will have access to the personal data held by us.

Where any agent, contractor or other party working on our behalf handling personal data fails in their obligations under this Policy, that party shall indemnify and hold us harmless against any costs, liability, damages, loss, claims or proceedings which may arise out of that failure.
Transferring Personal Data to a Country Outside the EEA
We may from time to time transfer (‘transfer’ includes making available remotely) personal data to countries outside of the EEA.
The transfer of personal data to a country outside of the EEA will take place only if one or more of the following applies:
The transfer is to a country, territory, or one or more specific sectors in that country (or an international organisation), that the European Commission has determined ensures an adequate level of protection for personal data;
