GDPR Update

From 25 May 2018, the new EU privacy directive known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect. At Staffvetting.com, we believe GDPR presents an opportunity to transform the way we organise and process the personal data we hold; increasing the value our customers get from it and reinforcing data-security led business practices that are essential to our commitment to high standards of information security, privacy and transparency. We have updated our policies, procedures and agreements, and request that you take a moment to review our new Business Terms and Conditions, Data Processing Agreement and Privacy Policy. All our policies will also be made available on our website.

You don’t need to do anything else, however if you continue to process applicant screenings through Staffvetting.com Limited from 25 May 2018, we’ll assume you’ve read and agreed to the changes.

Here’s a quick overview.

  • All Online Systems
    All of our systems have been updated as part of GDPR compliance, so you don’t need to do anything. We have added new security features, updated processes and provided more support for candidates and customers etc.
  • Data Processing Agreement (DPA)
    Our new Data Processing Agreement (DPA) explains our responsibilities as the Data Processor of the data you hold on your Staffvetting.com Limited account and your increased responsibilities as the Data Controller. Even if this new legislation doesn’t directly affect you or your account we recommend you understand the changes coming into effect.
  • Business Terms and Conditions
    What’s new? Replacing our Terms of Use, the new Business Terms and Conditions includes links to the Data Processing Agreement and has improved the explanation of ownership, administration and your responsibilities. We ask you to please read the documentation carefully to make yourself familiar with the new content.
  • Privacy Policy
    Updates have been made to further clarify our processing and non-processing of data in accordance with the GDPR.
  • GDPR FAQ’s
    In compliance with the GDPR we’ve written a GDPR FAQ’s that answers some of the questions and outlines some features we’ve added to Staffvetting.com Limited.
