Langleys Internal Actions taken prior to 25th May 2018 to comply with GDPR



Documents were created for all software currently sold by Langleys or sold by Langleys in the last five years. These documents are designed to make our resellers aware of how and where the software stores customer information. We recommend all resellers hand out this information to their end-users upon completion of a new installation.



All data Langleys hold on current customers, staff and suppliers was analysed. A decision was made that any information that was unnecessary or no longer necessary to hold was destroyed and anything that could be digitalised and encrypted was converted, with the old paper version destroyed using a shredder. This process is still ongoing.



An email was sent to all Langleys customers informing them about our updated privacy policy, specifically what type of information we store on them, why we have their information and asking if we can continue to hold their information.  Six contacts requested to be removed from our mailing list and they were immediately. Customers which prefer to be contacted by letter were contacted in this manner. Nobody contacted in this manner requested to be removed from our mailing list.



Internal training was conducted by JP Shelley and DR Stephens, our designated DPO’s (Data protection officers). Every member of Langleys staff was provided with training and made aware of GDPR and the forthcoming changes to data protection law. Staff were trained on numerous topics such as the importance of encrypting customer data and the significance of regularly updating passwords.
