Are You GDPR Compliant?

Are You GDPR Compliant? As you may be aware (and we hope you are!), the old Data Protection Act will be changing to GDPR - General Data Protection Regulations on May 25th 2018. This is not a rumour or a potential - it is happening! What is also changing is that previously the Data Protection Act, whilst enforceable, was actually a directive. The new GDPR is legislation - it is not voluntary or suggestive, it is law!

What do I need to be aware of? The first thing you need to be aware of is that the new regulations will affect you in some form or another. Be aware! It is easier to check and know that be reactive and plead ignorance. Ignorance is absolutely no defence. Whilst the ICO has stated "it’s scaremongering to suggest that we’ll be making early examples of organisations for minor infringements or that maximum fines will become the norm. This law is not about fines. It’s about putting the consumer and citizen first. We can’t lose sight of that.", they will still enforce the regulations where necessary.

Look at what information you keep on contacts - your accounts package, the means you use to keep contact details (doesn't matter if it's an Access database or a true CRM package, it still applies), where you keep the information (on a single computer, on a server, in the Cloud), who can see and who can get access to it, do you actually have permission to have this data?, is it up to date?, employee records, do I have a privacy policy and is it on my website?, what does my CCTV capture?. As you can see, there are quite a few things to consider.

To carry out an initial audit, we have prepared a basic checklist which asks the outline questions, the answers to which should form the basis of your investigation.

Polarsun Creative and SportSmart Consulting Join Forces

Polarsun Creative and SportSmart Consulting Join Forces For the past 18 months, both Polarsun and SportSmart Consulting have worked in tandem. Whilst the fields of operation have been mostly different, there have been areas of crossover that blurred the company lines to the point it could have been either company carrying out the work. With that in mind, the decision was taken to merge both companies together to work under the banner of Polarsun Creative. This will allow us more flexibility to do what we have always done but to offer a broader service to everyone under one name.

Our client base extends across sports clubs, construction companies, manufacturing companies, the service industry and a host of other business types. We still offer the same flexible, responsive and supportive service we always did and will continue to do so.

System Restructure and Remodeling

System Restructure and Remodeling We set about restructuring our existing software platforms to make them more suitable for a larger number of companies in other areas. The modular system we had in place has been dismantled and rebuilt to enable a more modular system whereby you can use only the elements you need. This makes the product more cost-effective and suited to your needs.

As always, the system is completely customisable and can be built around your specific needs if required.

A new system has been put in place to manage storage for a container storage company

We were tasked with creating a storage management system which would track rentals, generate bills based on whether the user is monthly, quarterly or yearly and also generates system reports for outstanding invoices and container occupancy. The system needed to be flexible enough to allow the users to add their own content yet robust enough to ensure that any data added fit the required criteria seamlessly. The resulting product has simplified the process and is not in use across two sites managing a large number of container and physical storage facilities.
