What safeguards are in place to ensure data that identifies me is secure?
We only use information that may identify you in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018. The Data Protection Act requires us to process personal data only if there is a legitimate basis for doing so and that any processing must be fair and lawful.
MI staff are required to protect your information, inform you of how your information will be used, and allow you to decide if and how your information can be shared. All MI staff are expected to make sure information is kept confidential and receive annual training on how to do this. This is monitored by our Privacy Officer and can be enforced through disciplinary procedures.
We also ensure the information we hold is kept in secure locations, restrict access to information to authorised personnel only, protect personal and confidential information held on equipment such as laptops with encryption (which masks data so that unauthorised users cannot see or make sense of it).
We will ensure external data processors that support us are legally and contractually bound to operate and prove security arrangements are in place where data that could or does identify a person are processed.
MI has a Security Specialist responsible for protecting the confidentiality of user information. If you have any questions regarding the confidentiality of your information, you can contact us at email@example.com.
MI is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) as a data controller and collects data for a variety of purposes. A copy of the registration is available through the ICO website (search by Mobio Interactive by name).
