Data Protection Officers should note that the Data Protection Commissioner has a wide range of enforcement powers to assist in ensuring that the principles of data protection are being observed, including:
On May 25th, 2018 the EU GDPR replaced the Irish Data Protection Acts of 1988 and 2003 as the primary legislation governing the processing of personal data. The Irish Data Protection Act of 2018 is expected to be passed in conjunction with the GDPR. Under the law enhanced rights are conferred on individual’s rights as well as new responsibilities and stricter rules on data processors and data controllers processing personal data. In addition, a new principle, one of being able to demonstrate compliance was introduced under GDPR.
The main principles of the GDPR are summarised in the following Data Protection Principles;
Personal data is obtained lawfully if at the time prior to the recording of their personal details the patient has demonstrated their consent to processing by creating an account with Construction Jobs Expo. Personal data is obtained fairly and transparently if the data subject, is at the time the personal data is being collected made aware of.
Construction Jobs Expo is committed to treating the information given to us in confidence and ensure that it will not be used or disclosed except as provided by the recorded consent or where required to reveal the personal data by law.
To comply with this rule Construction Jobs Expo will ensure that:
Article 5 of the Regulation gives a person a right to seek to have their personal data amended or erased where it is established that it is incorrect.
Construction Jobs Expo may only keep data for a purpose/s that are specific, lawful, legitimate and clearly stated and the data should only be processed in a manner compatible with the purpose.
Where consent is the lawful basis of the processing any additional processing of personal data will not proceed without further consent from the data subject.
The Regulation requires that personal information held should be retained for no longer than is necessary for the purpose/s for which it was obtained.
Construction Jobs Expo will be informed of the limitations of the retention of data by generally, the data protection and privacy legislation in Ireland and specifically by the various legal requirements, e.g. responsibilities to Revenue, retention for compliance with employer responsibility under the various employers, workplace, health and safety, and industrial relations Acts, limitation periods on civil actions and in the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Construction Jobs Expo must provide “appropriate” security measures to protect personal data from unauthorised access when in use and in storage or in transit and must protect it from inadvertent destruction, amendment, loss, disclosure, corruption or unlawful processing.
In compliance with this requirement Construction Jobs Expo has put in place physical and technical security measures to protect the confidentiality of personal data. Including, inter alia;
When collecting personal data from customers, staff, partners or suppliers or other stakeholders that Construction Jobs Expo engages with, we will only collect the information we need to carry out the task, request or function it is required for.
We will not work on the basis of collecting information ‘just in case’ and we will encourage a questioning culture in Construction Jobs Expo so that when designing our workflows and tasks that privacy and the importance of it remains to the fore of our approach.
