Legal & Regulatory Obligations

JGBM Ltd recognises the requirements of the current legislation relating to data protection & privacy and electronic communications.

EU Regulation 2016/679 General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU). The GDPR sets out the principles for data management and the rights of the individual, while also imposing fines that can be revenue-based. The General Data Protection Regulation covers all companies that deal with data of EU citizens, so it is a critical regulation for corporate compliance officers at banks, insurers, and other financial companies. GDPR will come into effect across the EU on May 25, 2018.

Under the GDPR, the data protection principles set out the main responsibilities for organisations.

  • Lawfulness, fairness and transparency – Personal Data shall be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the Data Subject.
  • Purpose limitation – Personal Data shall be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes.
  • Data minimisation – Personal Data shall be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.
  • Accuracy – Personal Data shall be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date.
  • Storage limitation – Personal Data shall be kept in a form which permits identification of Data Subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Data are processed.
  • Integrity and confidentiality – Personal Data shall be processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
  • Accountability – The Data Controller shall be responsible for, and be able to demonstrate compliance with the GDPR.

Please read the ICO guide to General Data Protection Regulation for more details.

Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (PECR 2003)

The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations are derived from European law. They implement European Directive 2002/58/EC, also known as ‘the e-privacy Directive’.

The e-privacy Directive complements the GDPR and sets out more-specific privacy rights on electronic communications. It recognises that widespread public access to digital mobile networks and the internet opens up new possibilities for businesses and users, but also new risks to their privacy.

PECR have been amended four times. The more recent changes were made in 2015, to allow emergency text alerts and to make it easier to take action for breaches of the marketing rules; and in 2016, to require anyone making a marketing call to display their number. This guide covers the latest version of PECR, which came into effect on 16 May 2016.

PECR covers the following areas:

  • Marketing by electronic means, including marketing calls, texts, emails and faxes.
  • The use of cookies or similar technologies that track information about people accessing a website or other electronic service.
  • Security of public electronic communications services.
  • Privacy of customers using communications networks or services as regards traffic and location data, itemised billing, line identification services (eg caller ID and call return), and directory listings.

Please read the ICO guide to Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations for more details.
