GDPR – Suppliers & customers

Ability Housing Association GDPR notice for suppliers and customers

New data protection legislation came into force on the 25th May 2018, its aim being to protect the privacy of all EU citizens and prevent any data breaches of EU citizen’s personal data. It will apply to all public or private business’s processing personal data.

As an existing customer of or supplier to Ability Housing Association it is important that you read the information below regarding changes to your existing contract or agreement with us to accommodate the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The established key principles of data privacy will still remain relevant in the new data protection legislation but there are also a number of changes under GDPR. Amongst the changes, the new GDPR specifies that any processing of personal data by a Data Processor should be governed by a contract with certain provisions included.

This will involve both your organisation and Ability updating our existing contract terms and conditions and ensuring we agree a schedule to clarify the roles and responsibilities between your organisation as the Data Controller and Ability Housing Association as the Data Processor.
