The new European legislation has been incorporated into our internal procedures, the training of our staff and the design of our processes, systems and relevant (internal) documentation.
More about ACCENDIUM and Personal Information.
We have established the principles for dealing with personal information in the ACCENDIUM Code of Conduct that applies to all ACCENDIUM employees:
“We protect personal and other confidential information in all forms. We collect, store, use, transmit, and dispose personal and confidential information in a way that is transparent and promotes trust. We gather, use, and keep personal, client, and other confidential information only if we have a legitimate reason to do so. Access to this information is provided only as necessary. Our duty of confidentiality does not end when we leave ACCENDIUM; we continue to respect the confidentiality of information even after our departure.”
We have developed this conduct into a number of rules for the sending, receiving, and sharing of information.
We protect information we receive
- An employee working on an engagement keeps the information he or she obtains confidential;
- We use the information solely for the purpose for which we have received it. Access to information is only granted to colleagues in order to perform their duties (the need-to-know principle);
- We delete personal information upon completion of the engagement, unless retention is mandatory by statutory or professional requirements (for instance, the archiving of a case file).
We protect information that we transmit or share with third parties
- When we transmit personal information to countries outside the European Economic Area, we do this in accordance with the legislation applicable to the transfer of personal information. We only transmit personal information if we have the required and appropriate safeguards;
- If we engage external service providers or other third parties that have access to personal information of our clients, we sign a processing agreement with the party concerned. We work with third parties that meet our security requirements.
We apply strict standards
- ACCENDIUM has a global Information Security Policy.. This policy is based on common sector standards and European privacy legislation;
- Using the most recent technology and encryption methods, client and personal information is secured against data leaks, unauthorized access, and unlawful processing.
- ACCENDIUM has a procedure in place to report data leaks in accordance with the Data Leaks (Reporting Obligation) Act (Wet Meldplicht datalekken).
