Data Protection Policy

Updated 8th March 2024

Bippit Ltd. is the data controller of your data, as defined in the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

It is the policy of Bippit that all data collected and processed must follow strict rules to ensure privacy, security and compliance with various legal frameworks including the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Bippit is committed to protecting all data. As part of the firm’s commitment to GDPR, Bippit documents the type of data held on customers, where it came from and who within the firm has access to it. In complying with the principles of GDPR, the firm will also process personal data in a legal manner and respond to data breaches as per the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) guidelines.

Bippit ensures the security of your data via our information security management system (ISMS), and is certified and audited to the ISO27001:2022 security standard. A copy of our certification is available on request.

2. Data Retention

Personal data is stored as long as the user and/or customer is using Bippit, and may be stored for 6 years after that in order to comply with the law. In some circumstances, like cases of anti-money laundering or fraud, the firm may keep data longer if needed, or if the law requires it.

Every third party entity undergoes a security and data protection review before being used by the firm to process data.

Where security and data protection procedures are not explicitly detailed, an agreement between the firm and the third party is drawn up and signed to cover all scenarios.

Data is not transferred outside of EEA.

4. Training and monitoring

Bippit’s appointed Data Privacy Officer (DPO) is responsible for making sure all employees of Bippit are familiar with the data protection procedures set out in this document. This will be done through an onboarding session for new employees, and a yearly training course for existing employees.

The DPO also has the responsibility to conduct a yearly audit of the firm’s data protection procedures to ensure compliance.

As part of any new features planned, the data requirements are reported to the DPO to confirm the legitimacy of the required data, and to update this policy. Feature development in Bippit’s platform should be built with data protection in mind. This will be monitored and enforced by Bippit’s CISO.

All Bippit employees’ access to systems and devices will be monitored to ensure the principle of least privilege is maintained. Where an employee accesses data that is not needed for the role, access will be removed and an audit will be conducted.
