1. Data protection principles
CMC is committed to processing Personal Data in accordance with its responsibilities under the GDPR. As such, CMC shall comply with GDPR requirements for all Personal Data collected from Individuals located within the European Union at the time of collection, regardless of where the processing takes place, where the processing activities are related to the offering of goods or services to such Individuals or the monitoring of their behavior that takes place within the European Union.
If it is possible to identify an Individual directly or indirectly from the information being processed, then that information shall be considered to be Personal Data. When considering whether information ‘relates to’ an Individual, CMC takes into account a range of factors, including the content of the information, the purpose or purposes for which CMC is processing it and the likely impact or effect of that processing on the individual.
Article 5 of the GDPR requires that Personal Data shall be:
- processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to Individuals;
- collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes;

- adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;
- accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date;
- every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that Personal Data that is inaccurate, taking into account the purposes for which it is processed, is erased or rectified without delay;
- kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Data is processed;
- Personal Data may be stored for longer periods if the Personal Data will be processed solely for (a) archiving purposes in the public interest, (b) scientific purposes; (c) historical research purposes; or (d) statistical purposes, subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organizational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals; and
- processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the Personal Data, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organizational measures.
- such measures should be appropriate to the circumstances of CMC and the risk the processing imposes and may include, among other things, conducting risk analyses, implementing IT security policies and user codes of conduct, physical and technical measures such as locked storage/server rooms, the pseudonymization and encryption of Personal Data, electronic access control/password restrictions, and implementing appropriate backup and data restoration procedures.

4. Lawful purposes
- All Personal Data processed by CMC must be done on one of the following lawful bases: consent, contract, legal obligation, vital interests, public task or legitimate interests.
- Consent: the Individual has given clear consent for CMC to process their Personal Data for a specific purpose.

- Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for CMC’s legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect the Individual’s Personal Data that overrides those legitimate interests. Legitimate interests must be balanced against the Individual’s. If the Individual would not reasonably expect the processing, or if it would cause unjustified harm, their interests are likely to override CMC’s legitimate interests.
- CMC shall note the appropriate lawful basis in the Register of Systems.

- The archiving policy shall consider what Personal Data should/must be retained, for how long, and why.
- CMC shall ensure that Personal Data is stored securely using encryption processes and modern software that is kept-up-to-date.
- Access to Personal Data shall be limited to personnel who need access and appropriate security should be in place to avoid unauthorized sharing of information, including, but not limited to, electronic access control, encryption, and other technical security measures.
- When Personal Data is deleted this must be done safely such that the data is irrecoverable using appropriate commercially recognized methods such as shredding, hard drive crushing, and/or degaussing.
- Appropriate back-up and disaster recovery solutions shall be in place.
In the event of a breach of security, defined as the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, Personal Data, CMC shall promptly assess the risk to Individuals’ rights and freedoms and, if appropriate, report this breach to the relevant supervisory authority. CMC shall report any breaches within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach, where feasible. If the breach is likely to result in a high risk of adversely affecting Individuals’ rights and freedoms, CMC shall also inform those Individuals without undue delay. A “high risk of adversely affecting Individuals’ rights and freedoms” may include breaches involving medical or financial information, large scale breaches of contact information, or a breach of contact information combined with other information that could subject the Individual to greater risk of harm. Such notification shall at least:
- describe the nature of the Personal Data breach including where possible, the categories and approximate number of data subjects concerned and the categories and approximate number of Personal Data records concerned;

Notice to the Individual shall not be required if any of the following conditions are met:

- CMC has taken subsequent measures which ensure that the high risk to the rights and freedoms of Individual is no longer likely to materialize;
- it would involve disproportionate effort. In such a case, there shall instead be a public communication or similar measure whereby the Individuals are informed in an equally effective manner.
