General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25th May 2018 and emphasises transparency, security and accountability by data controllers, while at the same time standardising and strengthening the right of European citizens to data privacy.
At Material Solutions, through the course of our day to day business and transactions, we will have collected information about you or your business and under GDPR we need to disclose how that information is held, processed and managed.
For business reasons, we hold the following information on our internal Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.
The information is held on a secure password protected network at our office in Dublin. Information is held for day to day business reasons to enable contact between our office and yours and to ensure we can dispatch items to you like statements, invoices and also for sales related promotions and special offers. By now, you will have received a copy of our GDPR email asking for your permission to continue including you on our email promotions special offers.
