The FAIM Coordination Centre (FCC) maintains and processes personal as well as confidential information about FAIM Applicants directly related to their FAIM Compliance Procedures.
This personal and company confidential information is however strictly limited and considered as absolutely necessary to execute the Applicant's Compliance Procedures, an integral part of the FIDI-FAIM quality certification programme.
The FIDI-FAIM certification programme requires that international movers have periodic independent assessments of their inter-continental moving activities through an independent audit.
This notice explains our practices with regard to your personal and/or company confidential information.
Our Privacy Notice addresses 10 privacy principles:
These 10 privacy principles are essential to the proper protection and management of FAIM Applicants personal and confidential information. They are based on internationally known fair information practices included in many privacy laws and regulations of various jurisdictions around the world and recognized good privacy practices. Furthermore they are in full compliance with the EU-GDPR: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/PDF/?uri=CELEX:32016R0679&from=EN
The FCC will, through appropriate management and strict application of criteria and controls:
- Observe fully conditions regarding the fair collection and use of information.
- Meet our legal obligations to specify the purposes for which information is used.
- Collect and process appropriate information, and only to the extent that it is needed to fulfil our operational needs or to comply with any legal requirements.
We have a responsible person in the FCC for ensuring compliance with up to date Data (Privacy) Protection regulations.
We ensure that everyone processing personal and/or your company confidential information understands that they are contractually responsible for following good data protection practice aligned with internal procedures and legal requirements.
We ensure all FCC staff is appropriately trained with up to date privacy legislation.
We collect, process and transfer personal and/or company confidential information about FAIM Applicants through computerized and paper-based data processing systems.
We have established routine processing functions (such as processing FAIM Compliance Procedure applications and FAIM Compliance Procedure audit reporting).
We ensure that all processing and transfers of personal and confidential information are subject to reasonable confidentiality and privacy safeguards.
We only process personal and confidential company information to accommodate FAIM Applicants with their respective Compliance Procedures. For example we identify key contacts to communicate during the FAIM application.
We only process company confidential information if needed for business objectives or if it is required to comply with applicable laws. For example, we process audit reports related to FAIM Applicants audit performance. We may therefore need to process confidential company information as an integral part of the FAIM Compliance Procedure.
As a general rule personal and/or company confidential information will only be collected, processed or transferred where adequate privacy protection mechanisms are in place.
