Your personal data – what is it?

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR”).

Who are we?

Store It is the data controller, which means we decide how your personal data is processed and for what purposes, and also acts as a data processor in some cases.

How do we process your personal data?

We comply with our obligations under the GDPR by; keeping personal data up to date, by storing and destroying it securely, by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data, by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

We use your personal data for business purposes to enable us to contact you directly, for normal day to day business activities such as invoicing and to maintain our company accounts and records. Our processing also includes the use of CCTV systems for the prevention of crime. Even the act of storing information falls under the definition of processing under the GDPR, so processing your personal data includes us storing any information or data that is contained within items that we store for you.

What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?

Processing data is necessary for the performance of our business relationship with you to provide storage facilities, so we have a legitimate interest to do so.
