Data protection & GDPR

mono motorcycles & vehicle security take our customers & followers personal data very seriously. With the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) coming in to force on 25 May 2018, we are obligated to ensure all personal data is regulated. But what does this mean for you? This is how the GDPR will affect your rights as customers & followers of mono motorcycles & vehicle security.

The following information has been prepared by The Smart VA & explains in detail how the GDPR affects your personal rights in relation to the data we collate.


GDPR Consent

Did you give sufficient and clear permission for your data to be collected, collated and used for the purposes that were declared to you? Under the GDPR, it must be as easy to withdraw your consent as it is to give consent.

Consent is provided only if you are over 16 years of age. Certain conditions will reduce this age to 13.

What is your right to privacy?

GDPR will increase the individual rights of each natural person so that they have the right to be forgotten, the right to object, the right to rectification, the right of access, and the right of portability of their data (information stored about them).

Data Subject rights

What is a data subject? A natural person, i.e you.

Right of access – allows you access to personal data being stored about you and also to know if that data is being processed.

Right to rectification – allows you to rectify, without any undue delay, your inaccurate personal data.

Right to object – allows you to prevent controllers from the further processing of your personal data (as long as there are no compelling legitimate grounds for continuing it.)

Right to the restriction of processing – allows you to prevent controllers from processing your personal data while either correcting or updating information about you. They are still permitted to store your data.

Right to erasure – simply put, this is the right to be forgotten. You can request your data to be removed immediately, cease further distribution of your data (so third parties must halt processing of the data).

Right to data portability – allows you to move your personal data from one controller to another for your own purposes. It allows you to move, copy or transfer your data easily from one environment to another in a safe and secure way, without hindrance to usability.

Right in Relation to Automated Decision Marketing and Profiling – There are safeguards for individuals against the risk that a potentially damaging decision is taken without human intervention: profiling or, by extension, profiling involving automated decision making.

Every natural person has the right to lodge a complaint with a Supervisory Authority and seek compensation against a Data Controller or Data Processor (only if the Processor has acted outside or contrary to the lawful instructions of a Controller). Compensation is considered if you have suffered material or non-material damage as a result of an infringement of the GDPR.
