Data Protection Policy
Lloyds Insurances Limited needs to gather and use certain information about individuals.
These can include customers, suppliers, business contacts, employees and other people the organisation has a relationship with or may need to contact.
This policy describes how this personal data must be collected, handled and stored to meet the company’s data protection standards thus complying with the legislation.

Background to the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’)
The General Data Protection Regulation 2016 replaces the EU Data Protection Directive of 1995 and supersedes the laws of individual Member States that were developed in compliance with the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. Its purpose is to protect the “rights and freedoms” of natural persons (i.e. living individuals) and to ensure that personal data is not processed without their knowledge, and, wherever possible, that it is processed with their consent.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) describes how organisations — including Lloyds Insurances Limited, must collect, handle and store personal information.
These rules apply regardless of whether data is stored electronically, on paper or on other materials.
To comply with the law, personal information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed unlawfully.
The GDPR Is Underpinned by Six Important Principles Requiring That Personal Data Be:

The GDPR and this policy are applicable to all Lloyds Insurances Limited personal data processing functions, including those performed on customers’, clients’, employees’, suppliers’ and partners’ personal data, and any other personal data the organisation processes from any source.
The GDPR Owner is responsible for reviewing the register of data processing annually, in light of any changes to Lloyds Insurances Limited activities (as determined by changes to the data inventory register and the management review) and to any additional requirements identified by means of data protection impact assessments (DPIA’s).
Partners and any third parties working with or for Lloyds Insurances Limited and who have or may have access to personal data will be expected to have read, understood and to comply with this policy.
No third party may access personal data held by Lloyds Insurances Limited without having first entered into a data confidentiality agreement which imposes obligations on the third party no less onerous than those to which Lloyds Insurances Limited is committed, and which gives Lloyds Insurances Limited the right to audit compliance with the agreement.
- Be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner
The GDPR has increased requirements about what information should be available to data subjects, which is covered in the ‘Transparency’ requirement.
Transparently–the GDPR includes rules on giving privacy information to data subjects in Articles 12, 13 and 14.These are detailed and specific, placing an emphasis on making privacy notices understandable and accessible Information must be communicated to the data subject in an intelligible form using, clear and plain language.

The GDPR includes provisions that promote accountability and governance. These compliment the GDPR’s transparency requirements. The accountability principle in Article 5(2). requires you to demonstrate that you comply with the principles and states explicitly that this is your responsibility.
Data Subjects’ Rights
Data subjects have the following rights regarding data processing, and the data that is recorded about them:

Lloyds Insurances Limited understands ‘consent’ to mean that the data subject has been fully informed of the intended processing and has signified their agreement, while in a fit state of mind to do so and without pressure being exerted upon them. Consent obtained under duress or on the grounds of misleading information will not be a valid basis for processing.
There must be some active communication between the parties to demonstrate “active consent”. Consent cannot be inferred from non-responsive communications. The controller must be able to demonstrate that consent was obtained for the processing operation.
For sensitive data, explicit consent from data subjects must be obtained unless an alternative legitimate basis for processing exists.
Security of Data
All Employees/Staff are responsible for ensuring that any personal data that Lloyds Insurances Limited holds and for which they are responsible, is kept securely and is not, under any conditions, disclosed to any third party unless that third party has been specifically authorised by Lloyds Insurances Limited to receive that information and has entered into a confidentiality agreement.
All personal data should be accessible only to those who need to use it, and access may only be granted in line with the Access Control Policy.
All personal data should be treated with the highest security and must be kept:

Manual records may not be left where they can be accessed by unauthorised personnel and may not be removed from business premises without explicit written authorisation. As soon as manual records are no longer required for day-to-day client support, they must be removed from secure archiving in line with your policies.
Personal data may only be deleted or disposed of in-line with the Retention of Records Procedure Manual.
Records that have reached their retention date are to be shredded and disposed of as ‘confidential waste’. Hard drives of redundant PCs are to be removed and immediately destroyed, as required before disposal.
Processing of personal data ‘off-site’ presents a potentially greater risk of loss, theft or damage to personal data. Staff must be specifically authorised to process data off-site.
Disclosure of Data

The retention period for each category of personal data will be set out in the Retention of Records Procedure, along with the criteria used to determine this period, including any statutory obligations Lloyds Insurances Limited has, to retain the data.
Lloyds Insurances Limited Data Retention, Data Disposal and Storage Removal Procedures will apply in all cases.
Personal data must be disposed of securely, in accordance with the sixth principle of the GDPR. Thus, processed in, an appropriate manner, to maintain security, thereby, protecting the “rights and freedoms” of data subjects. Any disposal of data will be done in accordance with the Secure Disposal Procedure.
All exports of data from within the Non-European Economic Area (EEA) countries (referred to in the GDPR as ‘third countries’) are unlawful unless there is an appropriate “level of protection for the fundamental rights of the data subjects”.
The transfer of personal data outside of the EEA is prohibited unless one or more of the following specified safeguards, or exceptions, apply:
An Adequacy Decision
The European Commission can and does assess third countries, a territory and/or specific sectors within third countries to assess whether there is an appropriate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of natural persons. In these instances, no authorisation is required.
Countries that are members of the European Economic Area (EEA) but not of the EU are accepted as having met the conditions for an adequacy decision.
A list of countries that currently satisfy the adequacy requirements of the Commission are published in the Official Journal of the European Union. (Please see “Related Documentation” section below).
Assessment of Adequacy by the Data Controller
In Assessing adequacy, the UK based exporting controller, should consider the following factors:
- the nature of the information being transferred;
- the country or territory of origin, and final destination, of the information;
- how the information will be used and for how long;
- the laws and practices of the country of the transferee, including relevant codes of practice and international obligations.
Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs)
Lloyds Insurances Limited may adopt, approved binding corporate rules for the transfer of data outside the EU. This requires submission to the relevant supervisory authority for approval of the rules that Lloyds Insurances Limited is seeking to rely upon.
Model Contract Clauses
Lloyds Insurances Limited may adopt approved model contract clauses for the transfer of data outside of the EEA.If Lloyds Insurances Limited adopts the (model contract clauses approved by the relevant supervisory authority); there is an automatic recognition of adequacy.
In the absence of an Adequacy Decision, Privacy Shield membership, Binding Corporate Rules and/or Model Contract Clauses, a transfer of personal data to a third country or international organisation shall only take place on one of the following conditions:
- the data subject has explicitly consented to the proposed transfer, after being informed of the possible risks of such transfers, for the data subject, due to the absence of an adequacy decision and appropriate safeguards;
- the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the data subject’s request;
- the transfer is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract concluded in the interest of the data subject, between the controller and another natural or legal person;
- the transfer is necessary for important reasons of public interest;
- the transfer is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and/or
- the transfer is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of other persons, where the data subject is physically or legally incapable of giving consent.
Lloyds Insurances Limited has established a data inventory and data flow process as part of its approach to address risks and opportunities throughout its GDPR compliance project namely;
- business processes that use personal data;
- source of personal data;
- volume of data subjects;
- description of each item of personal data;
- processing activity;
- maintains the inventory of data categories of personal data processed;
- documents the purpose(s) for which each category of personal data is used;
- recipients, and potential recipients, of the personal data;

Lloyds Insurances Limited is aware of all risks associated with the processing of, specific types of personal data.
Lloyds Insurances Limited assesses the level of risk to individuals associated with the processing of their personal data. Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) may be carried out in relation to the processing of personal data by Lloyds Insurances Limited and in relation to processing undertaken by other organisations on behalf of Lloyds Insurances Limited. All future technology projects will be the subject of a DPIA.
Lloyds Insurances Limited shall manage any risks identified by the risk assessment, to reduce the likelihood of a non-conformance with this policy.
Where a type of processing, particularly using new technologies and considering the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, Lloyds Insurances Limited shall, prior to the processing, carry out a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) of the impact of the envisaged processing operations on the protection of personal data. A single Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) may address a set of similar processing operations that present similar high risks.
Following the result of a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA),it is clear that Lloyds Insurances Limited is about to commence processing of personal data that could cause damage and/or distress to the data subjects, the decision as to whether Lloyds Insurances Limited may proceed must be escalated for review to the Data Protection Officer.
The Data Protection Officer shall, if there are significant concerns, either as to the potential damage or distress, or the quantity of data concerned, escalate the matter to the supervisory authority.
Data Protection Risks
This policy helps to protect Lloyds Insurances Limited from potentially, serious data security risks, including:
- Breaches of confidentiality: for instance, information processed inappropriately;
- Reputational damage: for instance, the Company could suffer material or non-material damage if hackers successfully gained access to sensitive data.
General Staff Guidelines
- The only people able to access data covered by this policy should be those who need it for their work;
- Data should not be shared informally. When access to confidential information is required, employees can request it from their line managers;

- Employees should request help from their line manager or the data protection officer if they are unsure about any aspect of data protection.
These rules describe how and where data should be safely stored. Questions about storing data safely can be directed to the IT manager or Data Controller.
When data is stored in paper format, it should be kept in a secure place where unauthorised people cannot see it.
These guidelines also apply to data that is usually stored electronically but has been printed out for some reason:
- When not required, the paper or files should be kept in a locked drawer or filing cabinet;

Personal data is of no value to Lloyds Insurances Limited unless the business can make use of it. However, it is when personal data is accessed and used, that it can be at the greatest risk of loss, corruption or theft. For example:
- When working with personal data, employees should ensure the screens of their computers are always locked when left unattended.
- Personal data should not be shared informally. It should never be sent by email, as this form of communication is not secure.

The law requires Lloyds Insurances Limited to take reasonable steps to ensure data is kept accurately and up to date.
The higher the importance, that the personal data is accurate, the greater the effort Lloyds Insurances Limited should put into ensuring its accuracy.
It is the responsibility of all employees who work with data to take reasonable steps, to ensure it is kept as accurate and up to date as possible.
- Data will be held in as few places as necessary. Staff should not create any unnecessary additional data sets;
- Staff should take every opportunity to ensure data is updated. For instance, by confirming a customer’s details when they call;
- Lloyds Insurances Limited will make it easy for data subjects to update the information Lloyds Insurances Limited holds about them. For instance, via the company website;
- Data should be updated as inaccuracies are discovered. For instance, if a customer can no longer be reached on their stored telephone number, it should be removed from the database.
- It is the marketing manager’s responsibility to ensure marketing databases are checked against industry suppression files every six months.
Disclosing Data for Other Reasons
In certain circumstances, GDPR allows personal data to be disclosed to law enforcement agencies without the consent of the data subject.
Under these circumstances, Lloyds Insurances Limited will disclose requested data. However, the data controller will ensure the request is legitimate, seeking assistance from the board of directors and from the company’s legal advisers, where necessary.
