The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the 1995 EU Data Protection Act. GDPR legislation is designed to strengthen the rights that EU individuals have over their data and create uniform data protection laws across Europe.
‘Personal data’ means “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person”. SkyNet UK processes the following relevant and appropriate personal data of its customers; name and address details, place of residence, email address, parcel details, signature of delivery, consignee deposit authorisation, delivery data, points of time and cash on delivery payments.
At SkyNet UK, we strive to deliver an excellent customer experience, earning the trust of hundreds of thousands of users globally. We will continue to make additional required operational changes resulting from the new legislation. SkyNet UK will keep our clients, partners and regulatory authorities informed throughout this process.
