The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) came into force on 25 May 2018. GDPR impacts every organisation within the EU which holds or processes personal data, including BioStore.
For more information on the GDPR visit the Information Commissioner’s Office website.
BioStore takes the security and protection of data extremely seriously. As part of our compliance programme we have updated our:
Customer Agreement, which applies if you purchase our solutions (whether directly from us or through one of our trusted Partners). If you have any questions regarding your Customer Agreement, or haven’t received this, please contact us or the partner you purchased our solution from;
Partner Agreement, which includes the relevant clauses where we are acting as sub-data processors for our partners.
It is only in exceptional circumstances that we have access to the personal data which is inputted into BioStore solutions. From time to time we may access this to provide support to users, for example, and if we do this it in the capacity of a data processor. Our customers are always the data controllers. If you take our hosting services, this amounts to us processing your data so again we are a data processor and will act only on the data controller’s written instructions.
We offer a wide range of software applications and provide efficient and high-quality products and services. Naturally we are committed to providing solutions that help our customers with their GDPR obligations. Indeed, the standard features of our software are specifically designed to help our customers reach compliance.
Our customers can be confident that personal and transactional data used in BioStore solutions can be:
located, anonymised, or deleted
Data in our solutions will be available at any time. This allows our customers to respond to requests to:
access the data
delete the data
rectify the data
or restrict the processing of any data
If you would like more information on the products and features available to help achieve this level of data control and compliance, please contact us using the email address below.
