Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.
We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

Greenfield Engineering needs to gather and use certain information about individuals.
This can include customers, suppliers, business contacts, employees and other people the organisation has a relationship with or may need to contact.
This policy describes how this personal data must be collected, handled and stored to meet the company’s data protection standards – and to comply with the law.
This data protection policy ensures Greenfield Engineering
The Data Protection Act 1998 describes how organisations, such as Greenfield Engineering, must collect, handle and store personal information.
These rules apply regardless of whether data is stored electronically, on paper or on other materials.
To comply with the law, personal information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed unlawfully.
The Data Protection Act is underpinned by eight important principles. These say that personal data must:
This policy applies to:
It applies to all data that the company holds relating to identifiable individuals, even if that information technically falls outside of the Data Protection Act 1998. This can include:
This policy helps to protect Greenfield Engineering from some very real data security risks,
Everyone who works for or with Greenfield Engineering has some responsibility for ensuring data is collected, stored and handled appropriately.
Each team that handles personal data must ensure that it is handled and processed in line with this policy and data protection principles.
However, these people have key areas of responsibility:
These rules describe how and where data should be safely stored. Questions about storing data safely can be directed to the Material Planning and Operations Manager.
When data is stored on paper, it should be kept in a secure place where unauthorised people cannot see or access it. When data is no longer required it must be shredded immediately and securely.
These guidelines also apply to data that is usually stored electronically but has been printed out for some reason:
When data is stored electronically, it must be protected from unauthorised access, accidental deletion and malicious hacking attempts:
Personal data is of no value to Greenfield Engineering unless the business can make use of it. However, it is when personal data is accessed and used that it can be at the greatest risk of loss, corruption or theft:
The law requires Greenfield Engineering to take reasonable steps to ensure data is kept accurate and up to date.
The more important it is that the personal data is accurate, the greater the effort Greenfield Engineering should put into ensuring its accuracy.
It is the responsibility of all employees who work with data to take reasonable steps to ensure it is kept as accurate and up to date as possible.
All individuals who are the subject of personal data held by Greenfield Engineering are entitled to:
If an individual contacts the company requesting this information, this is called a subject access request. If an individual requests for the personal data to be permanently deleted this is known as right to erasure
‘Subject access requests’ and ‘right to erasure’ from individuals should be made by either email to email@example.com or via contact by phone or in person. ‘Subject Access request’ and ‘Right to Erasure’ forms are available on Greenfield Engineering’s intranet site and a hard copy will be supplied to any individual requesting this information.
In order to fulfil these requests and before handing over or permanently deleting any personal data, Greenfield Engineering will need to verify the identity of anyone making these requests by requesting original photographic identification and a completed form. Once completed these request forms will be stored in a secure location for 7 years before being destroyed.
In accordance with GDPR Legislation, there is no fee for this request, and the data controller will provide the relevant data within 31 days of the request being made.
In certain circumstances, the Data Protection Act allows personal data to be disclosed to law enforcement agencies without consent of the data subject.
Under these circumstances, Greenfield Engineering will disclose requested data. However, the data controller will ensure the request is legitimate, seeking assistance from the board and from the company’s legal advisers where necessary.
Greenfield Engineering aims to ensure that individuals are aware that their data is being processed, and that they understand:
The act came into effect from October 2015. Greenfield Engineering (SM) Ltd (GFL) is committed to a work environment that is free from human trafficking, forced labour and unlawful child labour. GFL believes that it has a responsibility for promoting ethical and lawful employment practices.
GFL will not knowingly use unlawful child labour or forced labour in any of the products and services it provides, nor will it knowingly accept products or services from suppliers that employ or utilise child labour or forced labour.
This policy sets out the high standards of behaviour and integrity that GFL requires from its employees in relation to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to prevent slavery and human trafficking. GFL also requires its suppliers and contractors to respect and follow this policy statement as a core term of any contracts that they may have with any member organisation or business supply chains. Human trafficking and slavery are crimes under UK and international law. These crimes exist in countries throughout the world. This policy statement defines GFL’s commitment to ensuring that human trafficking and slavery does not exist within its own business, but also details how we will make efforts to eradicate the same from other businesses with whom it shall maintain a relationship. GFL will take appropriate steps to ensure not only its own compliance but also that these requirements are followed by its suppliers and subcontractors.
Human Trafficking: The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation.
Forced Labour: All work or service, not voluntarily performed, that is obtained from an individual under the threat of force or penalty.
Harmful Child Labour: Consists of the employment of children that is economically exploitative, or is likely to be hazardous to, or interfere with, the child’s education, or to be harmful to the child’s health, or physical, mental, spiritual, moral, or social development.
Upon request, GFL suppliers will certify that the services or materials incorporated into the products they provide GFL comply with the laws regarding human trafficking and slavery of the country or countries in which they are doing business. Failure to provide this evidence can lead to your removal from our supplier list.
Suppliers must be able to demonstrate compliance with this policy at the request and satisfaction of GFL. We would also like to conduct unannounced audits of your operations from time to time, which may include an audit of your personnel recruitment sources.
Any employee or supplier who has knowledge or information regarding a possible violation is encouraged to either report the violation to the Human Resources department immediately or report the information directly to the Managing Director.
