Adequate, relevant, not excessive
Carraig Donn adheres to the principle that data gathered must be adequate, relevant and not excessive. It is important to note that laws, rules and practices can evolve or change, so this will be reflected in the application and the operative spectrum of the three guiding sub-principles below.
Adequate: To provide the services on offer, personal data must be gathered for the purpose of communication, information, administration and legal compliance.
Relevant: Only personal data which is germane, appropriate and necessary under law to the requirements of the services provided and legitimate interests of Carraig Donn are sought.

Carraig Donn minimises the quantum of personal data held. To facilitate this, unnecessary and/or superfluous data will be deleted/discarded in a secure manner. Where information must be held e.g. under a legal obligation then the appropriate amount of time for that data to be held under the specific industry guidelines, will not be retained for any longer than this said period.
