DATA PROTECTION PRINCIPLES
Anyone processing Personal Data must comply with the eight enforceable principles of good practice. These provide that Personal Data must be:
a) processed fairly, lawfully and in a transparent manner (Fairness, Lawfulness and Transparency),
b) processed for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and in an appropriate way (Purpose Limitation),
c) adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the stated purpose (Data Minimisation),
d) kept accurate and up to date (Accuracy),
e) not kept longer than necessary for the stated purpose (Storage Limitation),
f) processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of Personal Data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction or damage, by using appropriate technical or organisational measures (Security, Integrity and Confidentiality),
g) not transferred to another country without appropriate safeguards being in place.(Transfer Limitation), and
h) processed in line with Data Subjects’ rights (Data Subject’s Rights and Requests).
We are responsible for and need to demonstrate compliance with the data protection principles listed above (Accountability).
FAIRNESS AND LAWFULNESS
The purpose of UK GDPR and UK data protection laws is not to prevent the processing of Personal Data, but to ensure that it is done fairly and without adversely affecting the rights of the Data Subject.
UK GDPR allows processing of Personal Data for specific purposes, which are where it is needed:
a) for the performance of a contract,
b) to comply with a legal obligation,
c) in order to pursue our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and where the interests and fundamental rights of the Data Subject do not override those interests,
d) to protect the Data Subject’s vital interests,
e) in the public interest, or
f) in situations where the Data Subject has given explicit consent.
We, as Data Controller, will only process Personal Data on the basis of one or more of the lawful bases set out above.
We comply with all relevant data protection laws in all our dealings with your personal data and ensure that our Data Processors do the same.
Special Categories of Data will only be processed with explicit consent of the Data Subject, unless the Data Controller can rely on one or more of the other lawful bases set out above.
We reserve the right to access and disclose personal data to comply with all applicable laws and lawful government requests or requests by the police investigating suspected illegal activities, to operate our systems properly or to protect the rights, safety or property of Clearcut, website users or others.

b) appropriate safeguards are in place, such as binding corporate rules or standard contractual clauses approved for use in the UK, or an approved code of conduct or a certification mechanism exists,
c) the Data Subject has provided explicit consent to the proposed transfer after being informed of any potential risks, or
d) the transfer is necessary for one of the other reasons set out in the UK GDPR, such as the performance of a contract between us and the Data Subject; reasons of public interest; to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; to protect the vital interests of the Data Subject where the Data Subject is physically or legally incapable of giving consent; or, in some limited cases, for our legitimate interest.
