An organisation that handles Personal Data and makes decisions about its use is known as a Data Controller. Professional Safety Services (UK) Ltd, as a Data Controller, is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Data Protection requirements outlined in this policy. Non-compliance may expose Professional Safety Services (UK) Ltd to complaints, regulatory action, fines and/or reputational damage.

This policy applies to all Processing of Personal Data in electronic form (including electronic mail and documents created with word processing software) or where it is held in manual files that are structured in a way that allows ready access to information about individuals.

Where national law imposes a requirement, which is stricter than imposed by this policy, the requirements in national law must be followed.
