Protecting personal records is a legal requirement and secure disposal of any data is a key part of this. Shred Alert are a UK wide confidential waste shredding and document storage company offering businesses a professional and cost effective disposal and shredding service to businesses of all sizes.
Our confidential waste shredding service is available in a variety of plans or as a one-off collection service. Setting up a regular, scheduled, shredding service can help your business comply with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
Shred Alert are accredited to BS EN 15713:2009, which covers all aspects of the secure destruction and interim storage of confidential waste. Under the Data Protection Act, which is now in full force in the UK, businesses are legally required to protect any data they hold regarding their clients or employees.
We provide a range of secure lockable consoles in conjunction with our shredding service, allowing members of staff to securely deposit any confidential materials. All consoles are lockable with only Shred Alert possessing a key, so any sensitive material is completely protected and cannot be accessed. Our team regularly empty your office consoles, removing the hessian bags and your confidential waste and taking it away to our shredding site.
If your business has records on individuals with any personal information such as: names, addresses, bank details, photographs, email addresses, patient records or employment contracts (to name a few), then there is a good chance you need to comply with GDPR.
In addition to this if a patient, an ex-employee or anyone that you may store records about, advises that they want to exercise their right to be forgotten and this has been requested correctly, then your business has one month to erase all of the data relating to that person. You then have to be able to prove you have done this correctly and in accordance with current legislation.
