UK General Data Protection Regulation
Data protection is the fair and proper use of information about people. It’s part of the fundamental right to privacy – but on a more practical level, it’s really about building trust between people and organisations
GDPR is about treating people fairly and openly, recognising their right to have control over their own identity…
We can help you understand what you need to do and recommend your next steps…
If you have information about people for any business or other non-household purpose. The law applies to any ‘processing of personal data’, and will catch most businesses and organisations, whatever their size.
Why cant you tell us exactly what to do about GDPR?
Every organisation is different and there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Data protection law doesn’t set many absolute rules. Instead, it takes a risk-based approach, based on some key principles.
This means it’s flexible and can be applied to a huge range of organisations and situations, and it doesn’t act as a barrier to doing new things in new ways.
A good place to start your GDPR journey…
A few reasons why you need to carry out your GDPR audit…
It's a Data World we Live in
We live in a world where data is shared instantly and constantly over the internet
It's Your Data too
Sharing data makes us more efficient, connected and cost-effective but data belongs to someone, we must respect that
Be Fair, Would You Like it?
We must share data in a way that we would be happy if it was our own personal data
Be Clear, Open & Honest
You must be clear from the start what you intend to do with personal information
Are you Processing Data?
Almost anything you do with data counts as processing; including collecting, recording, storing, using, analysing, combining, disclosing or deleting it

Their support staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and go above and beyond to deal with any issues that may arise whether that be remotely or on site. From upgrading our IT network and associated hardware to the installation of a new telephony system I find Digicomm to be extremely professional in everything they do."
CEO - Go Ranks Ltd
"I highly recommend Mark Pollitt and his company Digicomm 360 Ltd, to any business wishing to reduce telephone and broadband costs. After a detailed consultation and review with Mark, we were provided with a detailed proposal to install a new telephone for our Online Learning Platform. Digicomm 360 Ltd will provide you with the right solution."

Compliance Administrator - Manchester Deaf Centre
"Since our telephone system was installed in 2008 Digicomm 360 have always been on hand to offer great service and support, and recently when we needed them, they had our system up and running within the hour. Responsive, helpful staff and reliable service."
Owner - Raine & Bea
"Digicomm 360 came highly recommended by Martin Harrington (Chip n Pin) who recently set up a card payment system for me, prior to the opening of my new boutique in Clitheroe. After talking with the Digicomm team, they put together a solution to install a telephone/internet line and WiFi at the premises.
When I first moved into the building, I discovered that the phone line had been cut and wires were in disarray. Tom Hyde (Engineer) was very efficient in safely reconnecting the wires from outside and setting up the new internet and telephone line. Since installation, I have improved efficiencies around customer communication by having a landline and Wi-Fi that enables my card payment system to work. I am also able to update Raine & Bea’s social media accounts while on site. An excellent service from start to finish."

I cannot recommend you and your team highly enough. The advice and service was outstanding, and I have no hesitation in recommending you to other businesses."
