Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices (FIP) are a set of standards governing the collection and use of personal data and addressing issues of privacy and accuracy. There should be limits to the collection of personal data and any such data should be obtained by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the data subject.
As an individual user, under the FIP, you have the right to (a) obtain from a the Adfor's Privacy Officer, confirmation of whether or not the data controller has data relating to you; (b) to have communicated to you data relating to you within a reasonable time; at a charge, if any, that is not excessive; in a reasonable manner; and in a form that is readily intelligible to you; (c) to be given reasons if a request made under (a) and (b) is denied, and to be able to challenge such denial; and to challenge data relating to you and, (d) if the challenge is successful to have the data erased, rectified, completed or amended.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices and GDPR we will take the following responsive action, should a high risk data breach occur:
Where a data breach in Adfor may pose a high risk to the rights and freedom of our customers, the breach must be disclosed to the appropriate data protection authority and also to the users who have had their data breached. Adfor will notify the responsible supervisory authority within 72 hours of a data breach. We will notify the users, affected by the data breach via email without undue delay and with relevant details in clear language about the nature of the breach.
We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
