The Data Protection Act
The Data Protection Act 1998 gives legal rights to individuals in respect of personal data processed about them by others. There are eight principles within the DPA, the seventh of which states that a data controller must take appropriate security measures against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss, destruction of, or damage to, personal data.
Your business data must be kept safe and secure, even when it leaves your office as waste. Secure Paper’s IT Asset Disposal service ensures that your legal responsibilities with regards to data protection are met, by wiping data from your data-bearing equipment using Tabernus software which meets the UK Government’s IT security standard, CESG.
The WEEE Directive
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive was transposed into UK law from a European Community Directive in 2006. The Directive stipulates that collection, recycling and recovery rates of electrical goods should be at 4kg per capita, so the UK regulations place legal obligations on householders and businesses to prevent WEEE being disposed of in the general waste stream. For businesses, a licensed waste carrier must be contracted to collect and either recycle or recover the WEEE, and it must not be placed into the general waste stream. 100% of the WEEE Secure Paper collects is recovered, and we prioritise reuse over recycling in accordance with the waste hierarchy.
Charity IT service partnership
Secure Paper is proud to be working with The Children's Literacy Charity. 1 in every 5 children in the UK is leaving primary school without reaching the expected reading levels. This means that approximately 1.62 million children in English schools can’t access the school curriculum because they aren’t reading well enough. For every 10 working PCs or laptops we receive, we donate the value of one tutoring session for a child at risk of illiteracy.
