Security & Privacy Policy


 This policy (Pol)019 is a key component of AMP EV Ltd management framework and structure. It sets the requirements and responsibilities for maintaining the security of information within AMP EV. This policy may be supported by other policies and by guidance documents to assist putting the policy into practice day-to-day. 

We are a ‘controller’ for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“Data Protection Laws”). We take your privacy ‘very seriously’. We ask that you read this Security and Privacy Policy carefully as it contains important information about our processing and your rights. 

In this document the term ‘personal data’ covers the data held in both computerised systems and contained within structured manual records. 

The GDPR covers any information that relates to living individuals processed automatically or forms part of our administration filing systems and becomes an accessible record. 

The processing of personal information includes obtaining, disclosing, recording, holding, using, erasing or destroying personal data. 

Aim and Scope of this policy 

The aim of this policy is to set out the rules governing the secure management of our personal data by: 

  • preserving the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our personal data. 
  • ensuring that all members of staff are aware of and fully comply with the relevant legislation as described in this and other policies 
  • Data must be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals. 
  • Data must be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes. 
  • Data must be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed. 
  • Data must be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay. 
  • Data must be kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed. 
  • Data must be processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures. 

These principles must be followed at all times when processing or using personal information. Therefore, through appropriate management and strict application of criteria and controls, AMP EV shall: 

  • observe fully the conditions regarding the fair collection and use of information including the giving of consent 
  • meet its legal obligations to specify the purposes for which information is used
  • collect and process appropriate information only to the extent that it is needed to fulfil our operational needs or to comply with any legal requirements
  • ensure the quality of information used
  • ensure that the information is held for no longer than is necessary
  • ensure that the rights of people about whom information is held can be fully exercised under the GDPR (i.e. the right to be informed that processing is being undertaken, to access one’s personal information; to prevent processing in certain circumstances, and to correct, rectify, block or erase information that is regarded as incorrect)
  • take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to safeguard personal information
  • publicise and abide by individuals’ right to appeal or complain to the supervisory authority (the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)) in the event that agreement cannot be reached in a dispute regarding data protection
  • ensure that personal information is not transferred abroad without suitable safeguards.



  • Ultimate responsibility for information security rests with Alasdair Croft, Managing Director of AMP EV Ltd, but on a day-to-day basis Emma Codling shall be responsible for managing and implementing the policy and related procedures. 
  • Line Managers are responsible for ensuring that their permanent staff, temporary staff and sub-contractors are aware of:- o The security and privacy policy and other relevant policies applicable in their work areas 
  • Their personal responsibilities for information security 
  • All staff shall comply with the Security and Privacy Policy and must understand their duties and responsibilities to protect the company’s data. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action. 
  • Line managers shall be individually responsible for the security of information within their business area. 
  • Each member of staff shall be responsible for the operational security of the information systems they use. 
  • Each system user shall comply with the security requirements that are currently in force, and shall also ensure that the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the personal data information they use is maintained to the highest standard. 
  • Access to the organisation’s information systems by external parties shall only be allowed where a contract that requires compliance with this information security policy is in place. Such contracts shall require that the staff or sub-contractors of the external organisation comply with all appropriate security policies.
