  • adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which it is processed;
  • accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date;
  • kept in a form which permits identification for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data is processed; and

The processing of personal data will be lawful if at least one of the following applies:

  • consent has been given to the processing of the personal data for one or more specific purposes;
  • processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which an individual is a party;
  • processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation;
  • processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the individual;
  • processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in a company; and
  • processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by a company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the fundamental rights and freedoms of the individual which require protection of personal data.

An individual has the following rights:

  • the right to be informed;
  • the right of access;
  • the right to rectification;
  • the right to erasure (also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’);

How do we protect your information?

Our systems are protected to ensure that unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal information, accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal information does not occur.

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, Superior have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard your personal information.
