Privacy Notice

Introduction

Within this privacy notice the terms ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our/ours’ refer to RJD Technology Limited. Our registered and trading address is at 8 The Green, Rowlands Castle, Hampshire, PO9 6BN, United Kingdom.

This privacy notice is aimed at all persons visiting our website. We are fully committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and this notice sets out how we will deal with personal data about you which we may collect. Please read the following carefully to understand our practices regarding personal data about you which may be collected during your visit to our website.

The legislation

Regulation (EU) 2016/679, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)[1] is the overarching data protection legislation within the European Union’s member states, including the United Kingdom (UK). The GDPR is validated and supplemented by the UK’s Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA2018).

These two pieces of legislation give more rights to you as an individual and impose more obligations upon organisations like us that hold your personal data than was previously the case. One of these obligations is that we must provide you with easily accessible and fully transparent information about why we collect your personal data and how we process it.

What is personal data?

The term ‘personal data’ covers an extremely broad spectrum of information relating to individuals, including (but not limited to): locational; genetic; health; biometric; mental; economic; cultural; political; educational; religious; and social.

The GDPR applies to all information that, directly or indirectly, could identify a living human being. Essentially, any piece of information can be classed as ‘personal data’ if it could be used to identify an individual either by itself or if combined with:

  • any other information held by the data controller, or
  • any other information that could be discovered by any person/organisation/entity using any reasonable means.

What does ‘processing’ mean?

When associated with your personal data, the term ‘process’ and its variations ‘processed’ and ‘processing’ mean the collection, recording, organising, storage, retrieval, adaption, protecting, correcting, updating, sharing, disclosing, deletion, destruction and all other actions or uses we are lawfully permitted or obliged to carry out. Processing can be by automated means (eg a computer) or non-automated means (eg a manual filing system).

What is a data controller?

A data controller determines the purposes for which personal data is processed and the means of doing so together with the technical and other measures needed for adequate protection of the data. A data controller must take into account the nature, scope and context of processing as well as the risks to the rights and freedoms of those individuals whose personal data is being processed (‘data subjects’). A data controller can be a person, a public authority or an organisation/entity.

RJD Technology Ltd is the data controller for all personal data that it holds and, except in a few very particular circumstances (which we will inform you about separately should they specifically apply to you), we do not pass your data to any third parties for processing.

Third-party links

We may include links to third party sites on our website. Where we provide such links, it does not signify that we endorse those organisations’ privacy policies and nor can we give any guarantee regarding how your personal data will be handled by them. You must review the privacy policy of all third parties before sending them any personal data.
