Personal Data Breaches
A personal data breach means a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, your personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed. Your personal data breach is a security incident and can concern a breach of confidentiality, integrity or availability of personal data, as well as any combination of these.
- Breach of confidentiality: this occurs when unauthorised parties, or parties who have no lawful reason to access the information, do so. The severity of the loss of confidentiality varies according to the extent of the disclosure. That is, the potential number and type of parties who could have unlawfully accessed the information.
- Breach of integrity: occurs when the original information is altered and the amended data could be prejudicial for the individual. The most serious scenario is when there is a serious possibility that the altered data have been used in a manner that could harm the individual.
- Breach of availability: the consequence of this is that the original data cannot be accessed when necessary. This could be temporary (the data are recoverable but it will take time, which could be prejudicial to the individual), or permanent (the data cannot be recovered).
In the case of a personal data breach, we shall without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than within three working days after having become aware of it, notify you on the personal data breach via email or phone call and with your valid consent take the following steps:
- block personal data;
- eliminate the consequences of personal data breach;
- check the integrity of all personal data;
- provide specific advice to you to protect yourself from possible adverse consequences of the breach, such as resetting passwords in the case where their access credentials have been compromised;
- unblock personal data.
