Data Protection Statement

Meraki Communications Limited and all its associated companies are compliant with the data
protection regulations and Data Protection Act, continually monitor and update policies and
processes to ensure continued compliance with Data Protection Legislation and Regulations
including the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018. As part of
the various services and products we offer our customers, and this includes system maintenance, we
may hold or have access to data that can identify individuals in order to be able to provide our
customers with the services, products and support that is agreed through our contracts. In all
instances, access to such data is controlled and limited to specific individuals.

Processing Information
Scope and purpose or processing

Personal data is held for the purposes of the provision services and related products. The personal
data held is obtained in support of contractual arrangements and is necessary under the ‘legitimate
interests’ pursued by the controller (Meraki Communications Limited) as defined in article 6.1 of the
GDPR. The facility to opt out of marketing communications remains but excludes operational or
pricing communications.

Nature of processing

Meraki Communications Limited does not undertake any automated decision making as defined by
article 22 of the GDPR. Data will be processed internally by the marketing department for the
purposes of objective and permission based marketing.

Duration of processing and retention

Meraki Communications Limited will maintain personal data for the duration of contracts during the
provision of services and products. Thereafter, the data will be held for a ‘reasonable’ period,
depending on the nature of the relationship with the customer. The data will be deleted when the
retention of that data can no longer be justified under the provisions of the Data Protection Act and
is not overruled by competing legislation or regulations. The terms against which data are held vary
and are dependent on the business cycle, regulations and legislation.

Requests for information

Persons whose data are held by Meraki Communications Limited and its associated companies may
request their own data. These are called subject access requests. These should be submitted in
writing to our postal address or via email to We will need to
verify the identity of the requestor and in the unlikely event there is substantial cost to Meraki
Communications Limited in terms of retrieving the data, we may charge a maximum of £10. The
regulations require us to respond within 28 days of the request.

Deletion of information

Persons whose data are held by Meraki Communications Limited and its associated companies may
request that their data be permanently deleted as stated in Data Protection Regulations and Data
Protection Legislation, and such requests will be complied with as soon as practicable where a
customer no longer has a relationship with Meraki Communications Limited or its associated
companies. Where a requestor continues to have a business relationship with Meraki
Communications Limited or its associated companies, we may need to ensure that the requestor’s
details are replaced with those of an alternative contact to enable the continued effective
management of our relationship with our customers and partners. Any such requests should be
submitted in writing to our postal address or via email to We will
need to verify the identity of the requestor in all circumstances.

Types of Personal Data

The personal data held will include: Name, Position, Telephone Number(s), email address.

No ‘sensitive data’ (as defined by the Data Protection Act) or ‘special categories of personal data’ (as
defined by the GDPR) are held against any current, former or prospective (wholesale only)

Categories of Data Subject

The data subjects whose data may be held by Meraki Communications Limited is restricted to that of
existing, former or prospective (wholesale only) customers and associated contacts. These data fall
under the category of ‘personal data’ and do not include any ‘sensitive data’ (as defined by the Data
Protection Act) or ‘special categories of personal data’ (as defined by the GDPR).

Data sharing

There is no routine data sharing of person identifiable data. Where exceptions exist, these concern
the management of systems where providers require sample data for the purposes of de-bugging
systems or processes. In these circumstances we would implement a formal data sharing agreement
to ensure the transaction is handled for the purposes of the ‘system fix’ and to obtain a legal
platform to ensure that access, security and disposal of the data adheres to our requirements in
terms of current and future ISO accreditation and Data Protection legislation.

In terms of transactional data (non person identifiable data), for example direct debit data, there is a
robust data sharing agreement and corresponding process for exchanging data with all suppliers. No
person identifiable data is exchanged or transferred routinely.

Data hosting

The majority of our data is hosted in secure cloud/data centre environments accessible only through
VPN. Our data is held within the EU, and where practicable these data will be held in a UK based
environment. Some data is held in secure local servers with the relevant backup and security
protocols. Access to all systems is managed through robust permission structures based on the
requirement of the individual’s role, and these are regularly reviewed.

Out of hours access

There are a number of specific roles within our organisation that require that ‘specified individuals’
have access to data outside of operational hours. For example to manage and react to incidents of
exceptional call reporting (fraudulent calls) and to access systems remotely or on site for the
purposes of maintenance or in managing system failures or errors. In these circumstances access is
either on our premises or is governed by the same security measures outlined in data hosting.

Risk management

There have been no significant security incidents in the last 12 months.
The organisational risk register contains all risks identified to date and these are managed as
determined by our internal processes, reporting to the organisational risk management group.
