GDPR Policy

Protecting Data

Premier Parking Ltd has a Data Protection Policy which details the confidentiality of information supplied, collected, sorted and used follows citizens’ rights, legislation and data protection regulations. Full Data Protection Policy and Procedures, and GDPR Compliance Documentation can be provided on request.

As both a data controller, and processor, Premier Parking must, and does, comply with data protection principles as set out in the relevant Irish, and EU, legislation, namely;

  • The Irish Data Protection Act (1988)
  • The Irish Data Protection (Amendment) Act (2003)
  • The EU Electronic Communications Regulations (2011)
  • The General Data Protection Regulations (2018)

Data includes a combination of identification elements, both personal and sensitive, held in manual and automated form. All data is treated with equal care and security.

How Premier Parking manages this process

Premier Parking is committed to ensuring that all staff members have enough awareness of the legislation to be able to anticipate and identify a data protection issue. All staff are certified in GDPR Awareness training to the 2018 standard

During its role as data controller, Premier Parking engages third-party service providers, or data processors, to process personal data on its behalf.

In each case, a formal, written contract is in place with the processor, outlining their obligations in relation to the personal data, the security measures that they must have in place to protect the data, the specific purpose or purposes for which they are engaged, understanding all follows the Irish Data Protection legislation.

The contract also includes reference to the fact that Premier Parking is entitled to audit or inspect the data management activities to ensure compliance

Premier Parking ensures that we comply with the data protection principles and meet our obligations in the following way:

Article 5 of the GDPR requires that personal data shall be:

  • processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject (‘lawfulness, fairness and transparency’)
  • collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall, in accordance with Article 89(1), not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes (‘purpose limitation’)
  • adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed (‘data minimisation’)
  • accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay (‘accuracy’)
  • kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by this Regulation in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the data subject (‘storage limitation’)
  • processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing, and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures (‘integrity and confidentiality’)

Article 5(2) requires that ‘the controller shall be responsible for, and be able to demonstrate, compliance with the data protection laws principles’ (‘accountability’) and requires that firms show how they comply with the principles, detailing and summarising the measures and controls that they have in place to protect personal information and mitigate the risks of processing.
