Data protection and GDPR is all about protecting clients’ personal information.

The Data Protection Act 2018 sets important regulation for companies to adhere to, with the interests of the general public at its core. All companies, societies and public services whilst they maintain contact with their clients all use personal data.

At MannBenham we have considerable experience with regards to data protection, being extremely well-placed to advise both individuals who are concerned about how their own personal data is stored and used, and businesses that manage and warehouse data. We remain informed and up to date with GDPR legislation and ensuring that our Isle of Man business clients receive regular communication with our business team.

One of the critical business requirements for Isle of Man regulated companies is the implementation of due diligence and compliance. We work closely with the management teams within these companies to draft, review and implement processes and procedures to ensure full compliance with the regulations. As a core part of this service, we can provide highly trained and experienced officials as Data Protection Officers (DPO). This role ensures that any business can satisfy their regulatory obligations including:

  • Customer data – ensuring that it is stored and maintained properly.
  • Compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Depending on your organisational structure, we can provide this and other roles as an outsourced alternative staffing solution rather than recruiting directly yourself. This will give you peace of mind that, as an expert in the field we will ensure you have the right person for the right role, to suit your budgetary needs and resource requirements.

We provide practical result-driven solutions to our clients – whether you are looking for an alternative provider or setting up a new operation we are here to help.

Under The Data Protection Act 2018 (and the Orders and Regulations made under that Act) the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the EU Law Enforcement Directive apply to the Isle of man, even though it has never been a Member of the EU. These provisions will continue to form part of Isle of Man law even though the UK has now ceased to be an EU Member.

Article 31 of the Applied GDPR requires controllers and processors (and representative if applicable) to cooperate with the supervisory authority in the performance of its tasks. In the Isle of Man the supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner who has both investigative and corrective powers. The applicable sanctions are warnings, reprimands, and enforcement notices. Financial penalties for infringement of a provision of the Applied GDPR may be imposed, up to a maximum of £1,000,000. An appeal against certain of the decisions of the Information Commission lies to The Data Protection Tribunal.
