Listings Ledger Plc. are committed to the principles inherent in the GDPR and particularly to the concepts of privacy by design, the right to be forgotten, consent and a risk-based approach. In addition, Listings Ledger Plc. aim to ensure transparency with regard to the use of data. We also aim to ensure that any processing is lawful, fair, transparent and necessary for a specific purpose. As a valuation company, it is important to us that all data is accurate, kept up to date and removed when no longer necessary and that data is kept safely and securely.
Our Data Protection Officer is Andrew Smith, who works to promote awareness of the GDPR throughout Listings Ledger Plc. His role underlies our commitment to best practice and inform and advise the Group and monitors compliance.
Listings Ledger Plc. recognise the right to removal of personal data, also known as the right to be forgotten, laid down in the GDPR. Individuals should contact our Compliance Officer with requests for the deletion or removal of personal data. These will be acted on provided there is no compelling reason for continued processing and that the exemptions set out in the GDPR do not apply. These exemptions include where the personal data is processed for the exercise or defence of legal claims and to comply with a legal obligation for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority.
Listings Ledger Plc. recognise that individuals have the right to access their personal data and as a general rule, a copy of the requested information will be provided free of charge although Listings Ledger Plc. reserve the right to charge a “reasonable fee” when a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive. If this proves necessary, the data subject will be informed of their right to contest our decision with the supervisory authority (the Information Commissioner’s Office)
As set out in the GDPR, any fee will be notified in advance and will be based on the administrative cost of providing the information.
Listings Ledger Plc. will implement data protection “by design and by default”, as required by the GDPR. Safeguards will be built into products and services from the earliest stage of development and privacy-friendly default settings will be the norm.
