Personal Data must be processed lawfully, fairly and transparently, this is done by identifying the legal basis for GDPR, documenting it and communicating it to data subjects.
Remember these facts:
*Fair use of data means you must not process the data in a way that is unduly detrimental, unexpected or misleading You must have told the individual exactly what you plan to do with that data.
Our Erudite GDPR Solution enables Data Subjects to Raise their own Right of Access Request on our portal or they can be stored via our Portal by your team.
Personal data must be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes in which it is processed. It must be just enough to do the job you need to do but not more.

As a principle, Personal data must be accurate and kept up to date if relevant. While GDPR does not define accurate, The Data Protection Act 2018 says that ‘inaccurate’ means incorrect or misleading.

The GDPR principle includes a proactive obligation to take reasonable steps to delete or correct inaccurate personal data. The GDPR does not explicitly distinguish between personal data that you create and personal data that someone else provides.
The core of this principle is - You must not keep personal data for longer than you need it!
You must be able to justify the data retention period you apply to personal data – the best place to do this is your policy which defines data retention periods. It's advisable to periodically, such as annually to review the data you hold and erase or anonymise it.
Our Erudite GDPR Solution enables you to record your retention periods, justify it and receive reminders to review them.

Personal Data shall be processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data. This includes protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.

The accountability principle requires you to take responsibility for what you do with personal data and how you comply with the other principles.
