Data Protection Officer
Rapid Mobile aren’t required to appoint a DPO under the GDPR but we have decided to do so voluntarily. We understand that the same duties and responsibilities apply had we been required to appoint a DPO. We support our DPO to the same standards.
Position of the DPO
Our DPO reports directly to our highest level of management and is given the required independence to perform their tasks. We involve our DPO, in a timely manner, in all issues relating to the protection of personal data. Our DPO is sufficiently well resourced to be able to perform their tasks and we do not penalise the DPO for performing their duties. We ensure that any other tasks or duties we assign our DPO do not result in a conflict of interests with their role as a DPO.
Tasks of the DPO
Our DPO is tasked with monitoring compliance with the GDPR and other data protection laws, our data protection policies, awareness-raising, training, and audits. We will take account of our DPO’s advice and the information they provide on our data protection obligations. When carrying out a DPIA, we seek the advice of our DPO who also monitors the process.
Our DPO acts as a contact point for the ICO. They co-operate with the ICO, including during prior consultations under Article 36, and will consult on any other matter. When performing their tasks, our DPO has due regard to the risk associated with processing operations, and takes into account the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing.
