your data secure

Namos have in place appropriate
security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally
lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We also
limit access to your personal information to only those employees who have a
business need to know. They will only process your personal information when
necessary. While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal
data, you acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and
for this reason, we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal
data that is transferred via the internet. If you have any concerns about your
information, please contact us (see our contact details below). We have
internal procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach which
includes notifying you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where
we are legally required to do so.

Retention of data

We retain the personal data processed
by us for as long as is considered necessary for the purpose for which it was
collected (including as required by applicable law or regulation). In the
absence of specific legal, regulatory or contractual requirements, our
retention period for records and other documentary evidence created in the
provision of services is 8 years. Please see the recruitment section of this
policy for specific detail on retention periods of applicant data.

and Disposal of Data

To ensure compliance
with the GDPR, all information, in any format, must be destroyed after the
relevant retention period. All information, in any format held by Namos, must
be destroyed in a way which does not breach the data protection rights of our
employees, contractors and customers.

All office paperwork containing sensitive data
should be shredded. If possible, sensitive data should not be written/printed
on paperwork, including login credentials. Other paper can be disposed of in
the other bins provided in offices as long as it contains no sensitive or
personal data – if in any doubt then it must be shredded.

Physical assets (such as laptops and mobile phones)
will be destroyed by a 3rd party supplier to ensure they are disposed of
effectively. Once the asset has been destroyed by the 3rd party supplier, a
certificate will be sent to Namos Solutions Ltd which will be stored in the
cloud. Additionally, the asset register will be updated to account for the
destruction of the asset.

Electronic equipment holding confidential data must
be disposed of by an Office 365 administrator and in accordance with any
retention schedule. Printed copy should be disposed of in accordance with any
retention schedule using the office shredding facilities. Large accumulations
of data should not be downloaded or copied.

Confidential data stored in the cloud, such as the
backups on Microsoft Azure, should be deleted by an Office 365 administrator
when the retention period has expired or when carrying out the offboarding of employee’s
