Given the sensitivity of personal data, this document encompasses the privacy entitlements of Data Subjects as codified under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
While privacy refers to the pieces of information that is not in the public domain, the GDPR is more concerned about such personal data.
It is fundamental to note that, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union Regulation that stipulates the data entitlements of data subjects and the obligations of those who process the personal data of data subjects.
More importantly, the National Driving School (NDS) GDPR is primarily committed to protecting and enhancing the rights of data subjects.
As a result, the scopes of GDPR include; safeguarding of personal data, security against the unlawful processing of personal data and the unlimited transmission of personal data across the EU.
The National Driving School, NDS, collects data from you with the aim of using the data to benefit you with exclusive services. These include;
Knowing full well that becoming a licensed driver requires you to pass through a qualified driving instructor; we collect your data with the view of matching you with qualified driving instructor under a registered company with us.
Data Minimisation Principle
There is a need to categorically state that, we only collect pieces of information that are useful to our employer/clients so as to provide you with places that are relevant to you. It should be bear in mind that we neither sell nor broker your data.
In the light of the framework of our contractual engagement, we share your personal data with our ETB and employer/clients.
Given the structure of our Data Sharing Agreements or Data Processing Agreements, we ensure that all the parties’ data are processed in such a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice and GDPR.
Worthy of note, however, is that our employer/clients have security requirements that require the collection of sensitive data, bank details, photographic identification details, which will be disclosed to the client in the event of candidate placement.
To this end, we often advise candidates of this requirement so as to be fully aware of the client details and requirements.
It is important to note that, we maintain outright security and protection of your personal information and do not disclose it except in an attempt to meet legal obligations, regulations or valid governmental requests.
In this regard, we only process personal data during the duration of your contract and maintain outright storage of your personal data that are needed within the timeframe of the validity of the contract and in line with the standard legal obligations.
In accordance with our standard practice, we do not store personal data outside the EEA and the Data is held in Ireland using multiple servers.
