How do we process personal data?
Payescape processes all Personal Data in accordance with the following data protection principles. All Payescape personnel must follow these principles if they process Personal Data:
Processing must be fair, lawful, and transparent: For Personal Data to be processed fairly and transparently, Payescape (as a Data Processor) must inform Data Subjects, when Payescape processes Personal Data directly from them. Where we intend to process the Personal Data for a further purpose such as for our clients in providing payroll services, other than that for which the Personal Data were collected, we will provide the Data Subject prior to that further processing with information on that purpose.
Processing for limited purposes: Personal Data must generally only be processed for the specific purposes notified to the Data Subject when the Personal Data was first collected or for any other purposes specifically permitted by Data Privacy Laws.
Adequate, Relevant and Not Excessive: We will only collect Personal Data to the extent that it is required for the specific purpose(s) notified to the Data Subject.
Accurate and Up-to-Date: We will ensure that Personal Data we hold is accurate and kept up-to-date.
We will only retain Data Subject's Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of Data Subject's Personal Data, the purposes for which we process Data Subject's Personal Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
By law, we have to keep basic information about our Data Subjects (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after such Data Subjects cease being our customers for tax purposes
Personal Data must be kept secure, and processed in line with the rights of Data Subjects. Personal Data must not be transferred to people or organisations situated outside the EEA unless it will be adequately protected.
Rights of data subjects
Data subjects have rights under Data Privacy Laws regarding the processing of their personal data.
Subject access requests
Data Subjects may make a request for information we hold about them. This request may be made in writing or orally. A Data Subject has a right of access to a copy of the Personal Data we hold about him/her.
Requests for any inaccurate or incomplete personal data to be rectified
Where a Data Subject has requested the rectification of their Personal Data, we must inform recipients to whom that Personal Data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
Objections to or requests for erasure or restriction of processing in specified circumstances
Where a Data Subject has requested the erasure or restriction of their Personal Data, we must inform recipients to whom that Personal Data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
Objections to processing
Where a Data Subject has objected to Payescape processing their Personal Data for public or legitimate interest grounds, direct marketing or scientific, historical, or statistical purposes, we must stop processing the Personal Data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the rights of the Data Subject or the processing is necessary for the defence of legal claims.
Payescape shall properly demonstrate its compliance with Data Privacy Laws. This includes maintaining accurate and detailed records of processing activities, consents provided by the Data Subject, data protection related policies and procedures. Employees who process Personal Data on behalf of Payescape shall retain adequate notes and records of all of the above in relation to such processing activities.
