Summary

ICOCR, e-Court and all its subsidiaries comply fully with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply from 25 May 2018, when it supersedes all EU member states’ current national data protection laws. Significant and wide-reaching in scope, the Regulation brings a 21st-century approach to data protection. It expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed, and places a range of obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection.

Many are wondering what GDPR is and how it will impact them. GDPR has been designed to provide individuals with greater control over how their personal data is collected, stored, transferred, and used, while also simplifying the regulatory environment across the European Union (EU). This new regulation impacts both organizations that conduct business in the EU, as well as businesses that maintain or process EU personal data. e-Court recognizes the importance of the evolving legal and regulatory landscape around information security and data privacy and remains firmly committed to GDPR readiness by no later than the effective date.

Some key GDPR principles to consider in implementation include:

* Integrity: Securing and safeguarding personal data using appropriate technical and organizational security measures.

* Lawfulness: Organizations must, among other things, ensure they have a legal basis for processing personal data, and process that data in a fair and transparent manner.

* Limited Use: Personal data may only be collected for specific, explicit, or legitimate purposes.

* Data Minimization:Only collect data that is relevant and necessary for its intended use.

* Accuracy: Personal data must be accurate and up-to-date.

* Storage Limitation: Subject to relevant exceptions, maintain personal data only for as long as is deemed necessary and reasonable.


Wider scope

The internet landscape is changing, and companies around the world are implementing stricter practices to protect your personal information from unauthorized disclosure and to be more transparent on what is done with your personal information and how you can control how your information is used and distributed. We have always followed best practices in collecting and handling your personal information and will continue to make this a priority when you do business with us.

The GDPR applies to all EU organisations – whether commercial business, charity or public authority – that collect, store or process EU residents’ personal data, even if they’re not EU citizens. Organisations based outside the EU that offer goods or services to EU residents, monitor their behaviour or process their personal data will be subject to the GDPR.
