GDPR is primarily a concern to individuals who contact DYFA as a private customer.
DYFA is data controller
Regarding GDPR, DYFA is a data controller, as DYFA handles customer information. This means that DYFA is in possession of and manages personal data, which requires a degree of transparency, fairness and responsible handling.
By contacting DYFA, DYFA obtains personal data related to the individual. The handling of this data is necessary in order to communicate, enter agreements and in order for DYFA to deliver services. DYFA only uses this data within the boundaries of what reasonably can be expected.
Thus, DYFA acknowledges its responsibility to handle personal data responsibly and with care.
Furthermore, as a data controller, DYFA is required to make sure that external data processors fulfil the obligations of GDPR. This relationship is secured through data processing agreements between DYFA and the concerned third-party.
DYFA does not share personal data outside the organization. However, in certain circumstances it is necessary for DYFA to transmit such data e.g. when redirecting enquiries, ordering shipping etc.
In the unlikely event of a security breach, DYFA acknowledges its responsibilities as data controller, and will, in accordance with the guidelines of GDPR, contact the relevant supervisory authority. Such an event represents a small risk to the single individual, but should such a breach represent a risk, the affected individuals will be contacted, if possible, as soon as possible and be notified of the breach.
