Data Protection Policy
This policy is very much a statement of principle which explains why and how data protection is vitally important to Yoke consultancy.
This policy achieves two aims. First it sets out our commitment to the new standards for protecting personal data set by Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (otherwise known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)). Second, it shows how we implement that commitment in everything we do at Yoke from the collection, use, and processing of personal data through to its hosting, cloud-storage, and end-uses.
Core Terms Used in this Policy
Data is information which is stored electronically, on a computer, in certain paper-based filing systems or any recorded information.
Data subjects for the purpose of this policy include all living individuals about whom we hold personal data. All data subjects have legal rights in relation to their personal data.
Personal data means data relating to a living individual who can be identified from that data (or from that data and other information in our possession). Personal data can be factual (such as a name, address or date of birth) or it can be an opinion (such as a performance appraisal in a HR context).
Data controllers are the people who or organisations which determine the purposes for which, and the manner in which, any personal data is processed. They have a responsibility to establish practices and policies in line with the law. Yoke is the data controller of all personal data it holds as an employer of people and a company with legal obligations with respect to filings and company law. It is very important to note that Yoke ceases to be data controller in the context of the use made by others of Yoke’s services, including the receipt, review and use of certain personal data sets (for example in an Employee Assistance Programme) provided by client clients to Yoke.
Data users include employees whose work involves using the limited personal data that Yoke holds. Data users have a duty to protect the information they handle by following our company’s data protection and security policies at all times.
Data processors include any person who processes personal data on behalf of a data controller. Yoke functions as data processor when servicing an engagement for a corporate client with respect to tailoring our wellbeing and performance services for that client. Data processors can also include contractors/suppliers which handle personal data (such as outsourced payroll service providers) on Yoke’s behalf.
Processing is any operative activity that involves use of data. It includes obtaining, recording or holding the data, or carrying out any operation or set of operations on the data including organising, amending, retrieving, using, disclosing, erasing or destroying it. Processing also includes transferring personal data to third parties.

Updates to this policy
The world of risk management, information law, and corporate compliance is rapidly changing. We are pleased to be a business which is cognisant of those changes, and which sees the commercial value and the ethical value in being vigilant where data protection is concerned. Data protection is vitally important to us and to our clients. We therefore will periodically update this policy to reflect changes in the world around us.
