BCC IT Privacy Statement / ISMS Policy

Privacy Policy


This policy contains a description of what is considered personal data, what types of personal data we collect, for what purposes that data is collected, how it is processed and what rights you have in this regard. At all times, we endeavour to handle personal data with respect, confidentially and sensitively. 


BCC IT Ltd (company registration number 2651835) trades as BCC IT and will therefore be referred to as BCC IT hereafter.




  1. What is personal data 

Personal data refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier, such as for instance your contact information and information contained within an order or a support request.  



  1. General principles for personal data processing by BCC IT

When gathering and/or processing personal data we adhere to the following principles:

a.         We will only collect personal data for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes;

b.         Will not collect any personal data beyond what is considered reasonably necessary to accomplish those purposes;

c.         We will not use personal data for purposes other than that for which the data was collected, except as stated herein, or with prior consent;

d.         We will not transfer personal data to unauthorised third parties, except as stated herein, or with prior consent.  An example of where we would ask for such consent would be to enable us to pass information that may include personal data to an organisation providing support not covered under your agreements with us, such as, but not exclusively software/app support vendors and printer/photocopier service providers;

e.         We will do our best to ensure that information is up to date by encouraging you to verify your personal data periodically;

f.          We will maintain appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access and against all other unlawful forms of processing; and 

g.         Except when stated herein, we will not store personal data longer than is necessary to accomplish the purpose for which the data were collected or for which they are further processed, or as is required by applicable law.
