GDPR Regulation

If you require an access control system from us then we will request an image of the staff member, their full name & job title so that we can create an access badge. However once this has been created, all information and reference to them will be deleted to comply with GDPR. 

Should you then need replacement badges if any are lost or damaged, then we will re-request the information from yourselves.
