Barber Group GDPR 
Privacy Policy - Protecting your Personal Information
This Privacy Notice tells you what to expect in relation to ‘Personal Data’ (or ‘personal information’)
about you, which is collected, handled, processed and stored by us. The processing of Personal Data is
governed by the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR”).
In summary, what is the GDPR and our Data Privacy Policy all about?
The law requires that eight data protection principles are followed in the handling of personal data.
These are that personal data must be:
1. Fairly, transparently and lawfully processed.
2. Obtained and processed for limited purposes and not in any manner incompatible with those purposes.
3. Adequate, relevant and limited to only data that is necessary to perform the purpose for which it was obtained.
4. Accurate and up to date.
5. Not kept for longer than is necessary.
6. Processed in accordance with the data subject's rights.
7. Secure.
8. Not transferred outside of the EEA or between countries without adequate protection.
We are committed to following these principles and will be open and transparent about the purposes for which we will use your data.
Who are we?
Barbers is the data controller, this means it decides how your personal data is collected, handled, processed and stored, and for what purposes. If any of your personal information changes, you believe that any of the information we hold is incorrect or you have any queries with regard to your personal information or our data protection policies and procedures, then please contact us at
What is Personal Data?
‘Personal Data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is anyone who can be identified, directly or indirectly from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in combination with other information that is
within our possession, control or from other information to which we legally have access to.
What is the legal basis for processing your Personal Data?
All Personal Data that we process, will be in accordance with one or more of the following legal basis’:
Consent from the individual (or someone authorised to consent on their behalf).

Where it is necessary in connection with a contract between us and an individual or an individual that is authorised to represent a non-natural person with whom we have a contractual relationship.
 Where it is necessary because of a legal obligation – if the law says you must, you must.

Where it is necessary in an emergency, to protect an individual’s ‘vital interests’.
Where it involves the exercise of a public function – i.e. most activities of most government, local government and other public bodies.
Where it is necessary in our legitimate interests, as long as these are not outweighed by the interests of the individual.
How do we protect your Personal Data?
Barbers aim to protect your Personal Data, and complies with its obligations under the GDPR, by:
 keeping Personal Data up to date;
 only storing information in secure locations;
 destroying information that is no longer relevant;
 not collecting or retaining unnecessary or excessive amounts of data;
 protecting Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure;
 ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect Personal Data.
 ensuring that we undertake suitable due diligence checks on 3rd parties who have a legal basis
for Processing Personal Data.
Please note that we have a legal obligation under GDPR, that we must notify any data breach to the controller without undue delay. Barbers therefore has processes and procedures in place for identifying, reviewing and promptly reporting data breaches to the relevant controller.

the 3rd party.
