This policy is complemented by others on security, which are relevant to the company's business, jointly describing Missus' approach to information security and privacy.

This policy applies to all Missus Professionals and Partners and, when identified, to third parties who access the company's assets.

The terms 'Privacy', 'Data Privacy' and 'Data Protection' can be used in the same sense as they are associated with a complex set of legal requirements that apply to Personal Data, which goes beyond data security and confidentiality. For example, it includes requirements on the transparency of data use and its conservation.

Compliance with this policy is mandatory and, therefore, all Professionals and Partners have the individual responsibility for ensuring their compliance with it and, if necessary, must request clarification from the leaders of their respective teams.

It is Missus' responsibility to define the appropriate mechanisms to achieve compliance with this policy, being responsible for the operational implementation of the teams, with the support of the Privacy Officer.

Compliance with this policy can be monitored through inspections, audits and/or requests for written confirmation of compliance, with all areas being responsible for regularly evaluating their compliance with it within their area of ​​responsibility.

Accordingly, any employee who has violated this policy is subject to disciplinary action.

This policy is based on the principles set out in the GDPR. However, there are national differences in the applicability of Missus data protection and privacy when processing personal data outside the EU, when receiving personal data from outside the EU or when processing personal data of non-EU citizens.

If in doubt, contact Missus using the contact details provided.

Data Protection Principles

As part of our activity, we process Personal Data: whether we receive personal data in the course of our business opportunities, our engagements with customers, marketing activities or a series of other related and support activities. Data may be received directly from a Data Subject (e.g. in person, via post, email, telephone or other sources), namely from our customers, partners, subcontractors, joint data controllers, support service providers and credit reference agencies.

All professionals and partners should only request personal data from a Data Subject that is relevant and necessary to fulfill a certain business purpose and task.

Missus is committed to complying with the personal data protection principles defined by the GDPR, namely:

Lawfulness, loyalty and transparency: means that we must have a legitimate reason for processing Personal Data, for example, consent of the Data Subject, compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject. It also means that we must clearly inform the Data Subject about the processing;

Limitation of Purposes: we must only request Personal Data for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes and not process it beyond the purpose for which it was requested;

Data minimization: Personal Data subject to processing must be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary;

Accuracy: we have an obligation to ensure that Personal Data is accurate and update it whenever necessary;

Retention limitation: we must not retain Personal Data for a period longer than necessary for the purposes for which it is processed, although we may retain some for historical and statistical purposes;

Integrity and Confidentiality: we must have adequate security controls in place to protect data against unauthorized and illegal processing, loss, destruction or damage, including technical and organizational measures, such as defined processes, training and awareness;

Lawful transfer outside the European Economic Area: we only transfer Personal Data outside the EEA provided that there are appropriate safeguards in place, such as a contractual basis;

Data Subject Rights: Data Subjects have a number of rights that we must respect (for example, the right to access a copy of the data we have archived and the right to withdraw consent given for direct marketing purposes).

Lawfulness and loyalty in treatment

Whenever Personal Data is collected, it is necessary to have a legal basis for the inherent processing. According to the GDPR, we must identify at least one of the following reasons for processing Personal Data:

Consent: The Data Subject has given consent for the Data to be processed for one or more specific purposes;

Contractual: Processing is necessary for the execution of a contract to which the Data Subject is party or for pre-contractual measures;

Vital interests: Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the Data Subject;

Public interest: The processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest;

Legitimate interests: Processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of the Data Controller, except when the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the Data Subject prevail.

When we act as Data Controller, we must ensure that we have a legitimate basis for collecting and processing Personal Data.

In some situations, we may act as a Processor on behalf of our client, in which case it is their responsibility to ensure that they have a correct reason for processing Personal Data, which they must share with us. However, we must take steps to ensure that our contract is clear about our responsibilities in this regard and that, if we collect Personal Data directly from Data Subjects on behalf of the customer, we have the basis to do so legitimately.

When a Special Category of Data is processed there is an additional set of conditions that must be met. Please contact Missus for further guidance.
