GDPR, RCS and You

What is GDPR?

GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 is a new regulation in EU law focused on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. It will apply to all EU member states from 25th of May 2018, including the UK, where it will automatically be incorporated into UK legislation.


What does GDPR mean for RCS Logistics and our Customers?

RCS Logistics holds data from its customers for a variety of reasons, this can be because you are an existing customer with whom we trade or as a point of contact for the arrangement of collections or deliveries. Occasionally we may be required to share your personal data with third parties, such as other RCS officers to enable them to perform contracted duties on your behalf as our customer.


Under the new GDPR regulation, RCS Logistics MUST…

  • Obtain your agreement to opt into any communications which we decide to distribute, either for the purposes of doing business or a marketing nature
  • Obtain your permission to hold your personally identifiable data and must inform you in cases where we do so
  • In the event that you do not permit to either of the above, we must remove your details from our databases

Our Obligation to You.

To ensure compliance, RCS Logistics has established a project team tasked with ensuring that our various business units and offices work together to ensure we achieve our aim of being as transparent and concise with data handling as possible.

All of our employees will be aware of the coming changes and will implement the new instructions as soon as they receive them. Therefore, we will be ready to answer any questions regarding the GDPR.

In the coming weeks we will invite our clients to opt into our various communications and seek their permission to hold data and we would very much appreciate your participation and continued support.


Thank you
