Data Retention Policy
Wedding Tuk Tuk’s Data Retention Policy is a tool to ensure all business information is retained for only as long as required.
It takes account of the context within which the company operates, including the legal and regulatory environment, for example compliance with the fifth data protection principle, and the expectations of stakeholders.
It is intended primarily as a resource for those responsible for processing data and to enable the disposal activity to be carried out in a consistent and controlled manner.
Wedding Tuk Tuk collects, processes and stores different categories of data. Each category has its own retention period which applies to all records in that category and to all formats: paper and electronic.
The data retention period will be adhered to wherever possible, although it is recognised that there may be exceptional circumstances which require documents to be kept for either shorter or longer periods.
If individual records or documents require an alternative retention period, this must be agreed with Prerm Gyani (email@example.com) in advance of any change and the reasons are to be noted and retained with the data.
The schedule below outlines the retention periods for each different category of data and the appropriate disposal activity.
