Have you created and published your Privacy Statement? This is absolutely fundamental and failure to make this vital document available to your data subjects is likely to result in problems. Without a Privacy Statement you have absolutely no defence from GDPR complaints, claims, and enforcement action.

Your Optindigo pack includes the templates you need but you can of course decide to write your own. Here are some examples of what to include:

  • The name and contact details of your organisation.

  • The name and contact details of your representative (if applicable).

  • The contact details of your data protection officer (if applicable).

  • The purposes of the processing.

  • The lawful basis for the processing.

  • The legitimate interests for the processing (if applicable).

  • The categories of personal data obtained (if the personal data is not obtained from the individual it relates to).

  • The recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data.

  • The details of transfers of personal data to any third countries or international organisations (if applicable).

  • The retention periods for the personal data.

  • The rights available to individuals in respect of the processing.

  • The right to withdraw consent (if applicable).

  • The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

  • The source of the personal data (if the personal data is not obtained from the individual it relates to).

  • The details of whether individuals are under a statutory or contractual obligation to provide the personal data (if applicable, and if the personal data is collected from the individual it relates to).

  • The details of the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling (if applicable).
