Network Scientific and GDPR


As everyone in the business world is aware, the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into effect on the 25th May 2018. Here at Network Scientific, we take data protection very seriously. As a result, we began preparing for the new regulations last year when a specialist Consultant came to visit us at our offices to guide and advise us in our preparation efforts. Luckily for us, we were already pretty much most of the way there.

Network Scientific will be complying with the GDPR regulations as a data controller and, where relevant, processor of data.

Our GDPR Commitments:

  • We will continuously focus on protecting data ownership
  • We will continuously seek to demonstrate our GDPR compliance
  • Individuals will have the right ‘to be forgotten’ by Network Scientific
  • We will not charge any fee for personal data requests
  • Our held data is not retained for any longer than is reasonable
  • We will report any data breaches
  • We will continue to improve our data protection systems as per the guidance provided by the UK’s governing body, The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)

Proving it:
