This GDPR Policy outlines our approach to ensuring compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the protection of personal data in accordance with UK data protection laws.

Scope

This GDPR Policy applies to all personal data processed by Sameday Express Couriers, whether collected online or offline, in electronic, paper, or any other format.

Principles of Data Protection

We adhere to the following principles when processing personal data:

  • Lawfulness, Fairness, and Transparency: We process personal data lawfully, fairly, and transparently, ensuring that individuals are aware of how their data is used.
  • Purpose Limitation: We only collect and process personal data for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes, and we do not process it in a manner incompatible with those purposes.
  • Data Minimisation: We limit the collection of personal data to what is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed.
  • Accuracy: We ensure that personal data is accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date.
  • Storage Limitation: We store personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed.
  • Integrity and Confidentiality: We process personal data in a manner that ensures appropriate security, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction, or damage.

     

 Data Collection and Processing

  • Types of Personal Data: We collect and process personal data such as names, addresses, contact details, delivery information, and payment details necessary for the provision of our courier services.
  • Legal Basis for Processing: We process personal data based on legal grounds such as contract performance, legitimate interests, consent, and compliance with legal obligations.
  • Data Subject Rights: We respect individuals’ rights under the GDPR, including the right to access, rectify, erase, restrict processing, and object to processing of their personal data. Requests to exercise these rights should be directed to our Data Protection Officer.
  • Data Transfers: We ensure that any transfers of personal data outside the UK or the European Economic Area (EEA) comply with GDPR requirements, including the use of appropriate safeguards such as Standard Contractual Clauses or adequacy decisions.
