Data Protection Policy


Webliveview  Limited needs to gather and use certain information about individuals. These can include customers, suppliers, business contacts, employees and other people the organization 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.


This data protection policy ensures Webliveview  Limited.


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.

Policy Statement

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) describes how organizations — including Webliveview  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:

  1. Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner;
  2. Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purpose;
  3. Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary;
  4. Accurate and where necessary kept up to date;
  5. Retained only for as long as necessary;
  6. Processed in an appropriate manner to maintain security.

The Board of Directors of Webliveview Limited located at canal house 563  canal house 563 south circular road Kilmainham  Dublin 8  are committed to compliance with all relevant EU and Member State laws in respect of personal data, and the protection of the “rights and freedoms” of individuals whose information Webliveview  Limited collects and processes in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GDPR and this policy are applicable to all Webliveview  Limited personal data processing functions, including those performed on customers’, clients’, employees’, suppliers’ and partners’ personal data, and any other personal data the organization processes from any source.

The GDPR Owner is responsible for reviewing the register of data processing annually, in light of any changes to Webliveview  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 (PDA's).

Partners and any third parties working with or for Webliveview  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  Webliveview Limited without having first entered into a data confidentiality agreement (DP checklist), which imposes obligations on the third party no less onerous than those to which  Webliveview  Limited is committed, and which gives Webliveview Limited the right to audit compliance with the agreement.

Privacy Policy - Data Protection Principles

  1. 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.

Transparency – 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 specific information that must be provided to the data subject must, as a minimum, include:

  1. Personal data can only be collected for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes
  1. Personal Data must be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary
  1. Personal data must be accurate and kept up to date with every effort to erase or rectify without delay
  1. Personal data must be kept in a form such that the data subject can only be identified for as long as is necessary for processing.
  1. Processed in an appropriate manner to maintain security

When assessing appropriate technical measures, the GDPR Owner will consider the following:

When assessing appropriate organizational measures, the GDPR Owner will consider the following:

These controls have been selected, based on identified risks to personal data, and the potential for damage or distress to individuals whose data is being processed.

Webliveview must demonstrate compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation’s other Principles (Accountability)

The GDPR includes provisions that promote accountability and governance. This compliment the GDP'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:


Subject Access Requests

All individuals who are the subject of personal data held by Webliveview Limited are entitled to:

Should an Individual contact the company requesting this information, this is called a Subject Access Request.

Subject Access Requests from individuals should be made by email, addressed to the data controller at GDPR@webliveview .com. The data controller can supply a standard request form, although individuals do not have to use this.

The data controller will aim to provide the relevant data within 30 days.

The data controller will always verify the identity of anyone making a subject access request before handing over any information.


Webliveview Limited understands ‘consent’ to mean that it has been explicitly and freely given, and a specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes that, by statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her. The data subject can withdraw their consent at any time.

 Webliveview 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 Webliveview 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 Webliveview 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:

All Staff is required to enter into an Acceptable IT & Security Agreement as part of their Terms of Employment and before they are given access to organizational information of any sort, which details rules on screen time-outs etc.

Manual records may not be left where they can be accessed by unauthorized personnel and may not be removed from business premises without explicit (written) authorization. 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 authorized to process data off-site.

Disclosure of Data

Webliveview  Limited must ensure that personal data is not disclosed to unauthorized third parties which includes family members, friends, government bodies, and in certain circumstances, the Gardaí/Police.  All Staff should exercise caution when asked to disclose personal data held on another individual to a third party. It is important to consider whether disclosure of the information is relevant to, and necessary for, the conduct of Webliveview Limited business.

All requests to provide data for one of these reasons must be supported by appropriate paperwork and all such disclosures, must be, specifically authorized by the GDPR owner.

Retention and Disposal of Data

Webliveview Limited shall not keep personal data in a form that permits identification of data subjects for a longer period than is necessary, in relation to the purpose(s) for which the data was originally collected.

Webliveview Limited may store data for longer periods if the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, subject to the implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the data subject.

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 Webliveview Limited has, to retain the data.

Webliveview 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.

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 authorization 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).

Webliveview  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, Webliveview  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 Webliveview  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 Webliveview  Limited may proceed must be escalated for review to the GDPR Owner.
