Data Mapping

What information do we hold?

Adiuvo has reviewed what personal and sensitive data it holds about individuals and confirmed it is basic contact details including name, address, phone and email information.

How do we hold the information?

  • In order to process callers request we store the information on our cloud based system which is housed securely on Amazon’s European servers.
  • Call recordings are held by our Telecoms company on secure servers within the UK Adiuvo/GDPRPolicy v2.1 Issued September 1st 2023, Authorised by C.Stokes

Where does it come from?

The source of this information is either collected from callers when they contact us in order for us to provide maintenance assistance or from access to clients systems should they provide it (which will be subject to their own Data Protection Policy)

Who do we share the information with?

The contact details above are the only data we share with a third party (contractors or emergency services) and is done so expressly to organise the assistance callers request. Adiuvo maintain a register of the details relating to each third party for regulatory and monitoring purposes and maintain an Outsourcing and Supplier Policy & Procedure. This enables us to meet our obligations and to ensure that all outsourced functions are handled according to our own strict procedures and protocols.

Notifying individuals their information is being shared
Callers are advised (and therefore we consider provide consent) via a pre connection message that we will provide contact details to contractors/other forms of assistance and that all calls are being recorded.

On what lawful basis do we hold the information?
Callers have contacted us for assistance

Secure Disposal

  • After 3 years, personal information (which is only held electronically) will be expunged. This we believe this to be the correct period of time to allow for any disputes to arise. After this time records we hold will still include the details of requests and actions but with no name or phone number data. The address and maintenance information will remain in order we can statistically model the remaining data for improvement and reporting purposes but without any connection to an individual
  • The above deletion process is completed via a process of overwriting all personal information including all backups immediately
  • Call recordings are deleted after 6 months in their entirety automatically.

Data Protection Impact Assessment
Although we do not believe scope of captured information will change significantly we will use a DPIA to identify and mitigate against any risks should new requirements occur
