Columbia Movers is GDPR compliant. What does this mean?

Columbia Worldwide Movers complies to all anti-bribery, anti-corruption, anti-trust and GDPR regulations, but what does this mean?

Your peace of mind is our responsibility

Basically, this means that your data is safe in our hands and that your privacy is protected when you visit our website or interact with our company. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has set a new standard for consumer rights over their personal data and we are keen to ensure our business meets and exceeds the expected standards. As a company, you, our customers are the most important part of everything we do, so it’s vital to our business that you have peace of mind when you use our services. Of course regarding your move or fulfilling your storage needs, but also for the protection of your personal data.

 

New guidelines for an online world

The GDPR replaces the Data Protection Directive which was created in 1995 and that has become outdated due to the modern prevalence of the Internet and the businesses that trade online or have an online presence. The new measures put in place will go a long way towards preventing data breaches, so your personal and financial information is much better protected and safeguarded.

 

What information does the GDPR protect

While we as a business will never require access to most of the following information, it may be of interest to you to understand exactly what data is covered under the GDPR. The new law protects the following types of data…

  • Your personal identity information such as name and address and identifying numbers such as those on your passport or ID card.
  • Data created as you use the internet such as your location, IP address and information stored in cookies
  • Information regarding your health and genetics
  • Biometric data
  • Racial, political and sexual orientation information

 

 The FIDI pledge

In addition to complying with the GDPR, we also comply with the FIDI charter and have pledged to take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption. At all times we act professionally and fairly with the utmost integrity in all business dealings and relationships. In short, we treat others as we would want to be treated ourselves!

Our pledge means a lot to us and we feel the values of the FIDI code of conduct cover many aspects of our business that are close to our heart. From providing a safe and secure working environment for our employees to providing the highest quality of service with great value for money to our customers and practising good corporate citizenship in our local community.

 

Our guarantee to you

As part of our FIDI pledge, we guarantee the successful completion of every move as agreed with each customer. So you can rest assured that your move is in safe hands when you entrust it to Columbia Worldwide Movers.
