Right to Be Forgotten (Data Erasure)

We recognize and respect the rights of individuals to have their personal data deleted from our records, in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other applicable data protection laws. The right to destruction, often referred to as the "right to erasure" or "right to be forgotten", ensures that individuals have more control over their personal data and can determine its lifecycle within an organization.
 

1. When Can Data Be Deleted?

Individuals can request the deletion of their personal data in the following circumstances:

  • The data is no longer necessary for the purpose it was originally collected.

  • The individual withdraws their consent (if the data processing was based on consent).

  • The individual objects to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for continuing the processing.

  • The data has been unlawfully processed.

  • The data must be deleted to comply with a legal obligation.
     

2. Exemptions:

There are specific situations where the right to erasure does not apply, including:

  • Where the processing is necessary for exercising freedom of expression and information.

  • Where the processing is required for compliance with a legal obligation or for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority.

  • For public health reasons in the public interest.

  • For archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research, or statistical purposes.

  • Where required for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
     

3. Process for Requesting Data Destruction:

Individuals wishing to exercise their right to erasure can submit a formal request to our designated data protection officer or through our established channels. We will process the request promptly, ensuring a response within one month of receipt. This period might be extended in complex situations, but the individual will be informed about such an extension.
 

4. Technical Execution:

Upon approval of an erasure request, Claro Print Ltd will take comprehensive measures to permanently delete the relevant personal data from all our systems and subprocessors. This means the data will be irretrievable.
 

5. Data Backup & Archives:

It's essential to note that data backups and archives are designed to restore data in case of disasters. While we will ensure that personal data is removed from active systems, it may remain within backup systems for a defined retention period, after which it will be permanently deleted.

Legitimate Interest As a Basis For Data Processing

Through this section, we aim to provide clarity on how we invoke and apply legitimate interest in the context of our services.
 

1. Definition of Legitimate Interest:
Legitimate interest refers to the interest of our business in conducting and managing our operations to provide the best service to every client. When we process personal data based on legitimate interest, we ensure it's done in a way that respects the individual's data protection rights.
 

2. Rationale for Legitimate Interest:
The services offered by Claro Print Ltd necessitate the collection and processing of certain personal data. Without this, we would be unable to provide our services effectively. Such scenarios include, but are not limited to:

  • Communication with clients to understand their requirements and provide tailored solutions.

  • Coordination with third-party partners, including print partners and warehouses, to fulfill customer orders.

  • Utilizing data analytics tools to improve our service offerings.

  • Addressing customer inquiries, providing customer care, and resolving disputes.

  • Processing and shipping customer orders, requiring address and contact details.
     

3. Legitimate Interest Assessment (LIA):
To ensure we apply the legitimate interest ground appropriately, we perform a Legitimate Interest Assessment (LIA) when introducing new processing activities. The LIA considers:

  • The specific interest behind the data processing activity.

  • The necessity of the processing for achieving the identified interest.

  • The balance between our interests and the individual's rights and interests.
     

4. Individual's Rights:
While we assert our legitimate interest as a primary basis for processing, we deeply respect the rights of individuals. They always retain the right to object to data processing based on legitimate interests. Upon receiving an objection, we will revisit our LIA and determine if our legitimate grounds override the individual's rights.
 

5. Transparency and Accountability:
We are committed to being transparent about our data processing activities. Clients and partners can always inquire about the specifics of our data processing, and we are ready to provide our rationale and the results of our LIA upon request.

Links To Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
 

Children's Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 ("Children").

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
 

Changes To This Privacy Policy

Staff Training on Data Protection and Compliance

We recognise the importance of ensuring that our staff is well-informed and equipped with the necessary knowledge to handle and process personal data in alignment with our GDPR Data Protection Policy. As such, we have implemented comprehensive staff training programs designed to promote a culture of data protection within our organisation.

These memos detail the nature of the change, the implications for our operations, and any necessary actions or adjustments staff members must make.

4. Continuous Improvement: Feedback from staff members is actively sought and considered after each training session. This feedback mechanism allows us to continuously improve the training content and methods, ensuring that they remain relevant and effective.
