- GDPR - 

This is a statement of the Data Protection Policy adopted by Tribus Consulting LTD 
Responsibility for updating and dissemination of this policy rests with Tribus Consulting’s owner and senior management. The policy is subject to regular review to reflect changes in legislation. All staff are required to understand, apply and abide by the policy and if in any doubt to seek advice. 
All staff, regardless of department, must receive General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 1998 awareness training as part of a signed induction process. Ignorance of the GDPR and DPA (98) is unacceptable. 
Tribus Consulting collects and uses certain types of personally identifiable information about clients, customers and suppliers in order to operate. This includes current, past and prospective individuals and entities with whom we conduct business. Personal information, or data, must be dealt with properly however it is collected, recorded and used – whether on paper, electronically, or other means. 
The success of our operation and achievement of our objectives depends upon maintaining the confidence of those we do business with. Therefore, we need to ensure we treat personal information lawfully and correctly. In doing so, we fully endorse and adhere to the GDPR and the principles set out in the DPA (98). 
The eight principles of the DPA (98) are: 
1. Data shall be processed fairly and lawfully and not processed unless specific conditions are met 
2. Data shall be obtained for specified and lawful purpose/s, and not further processed in any other manner 
3. Data shall be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purpose processed 
4. Data shall be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date 
5. Data shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for the specified purpose 
6. Data shall be processed in accordance with the rights of the data subjects under the Act 
7. Data should be subject to technical and organisational measures to prevent damage, destruction or loss 
8. Data shall not be transferred outside the EEA unless the country has an adequate level of data protection 
(These will be replaced by the GDPR in May 2018)
